FLYING HIGH: Zendaya Makes Her Debut on US Vogue's July 2017 Issue



Photographed by Mario Testino, actress/singer Zendaya covers the July 2017 issue of American Vogue. The "Spider-Man: Homecoming" actress wears a Calvin Klein 205W39NYC dress with Diane von Furstenberg disc and Dinosaur Designs drop earrings for her debut cover.

For her cover story, Zendaya opens up about her first love, her upcoming summer hit movie "Spider-Man: Homecoming" (out July 7th), and reinventing her Disney stardom. Read up on Zendaya's cover story -- HERE.

Zendaya is the ultimate style chameleon, able to pull off virtually any look. Here, she puts that skill to the test by dancing her way through nine decades of fashion and beauty, from ’20s flapper to today’s text-neck teen and everything in between.

From the Makers of BEVEL, Walker & Company Brands Launches New Haircare Line, FORM Beauty

With the success of the BEVEL Shaving System, The Walker & Company introduces a new line catering to our unique haircare needs. FORM Beauty, a prestige hair care collection designed for hair of all textures, takes the guesswork of not knowing what to buy, where to get it and how to use it.

Inspired by your personal hair journey, FORM created a hair care collection that’s as versatile, as uncompromising and as beautiful as you are...
FORM guarantees their products are formulated with little to no synthetic ingredients with the purpose of keeping your hair as healthy as possible. Most of their ingredients are naturally derived with you in mind.

According to Yahoo Beauty Director Dana Oliver, the 10-piece collection works on all textures, even natural and chemically-processed hair. "My hair still feels moisturized without applying any additional product," Oliver shared after her experience with using FORM. "Normally, I’d be slathering on oils and creams to revive my locks and make them less lackluster. It seems FORM has given me an ounce of hope for decluttering my hair routine without getting bored with my look."

The collection range from $22 to $32 and includes a detoxifying shampoo, moisturizing conditioner, 3-in-1 leave-in lotion, styling cremes, and heat protectant serum.

Listen to Naomi Wachira's 'Beautifully Human' + "Song of Lament" to be Released on June 2nd

Listen to Naomi Wachira's 'Beautifully Human' + "Song of Lament" to be Released on June 2nd



Afro-Folk singer/songwriter Naomi Wachira released her lead single, 'Beautifully Human' from her forthcoming second studio album, "Song of Lament" (pre-order via iTunes). The Kenyan-born, Seattle-based artist highlights issues of human equality, especially as it undermines the divine sacredness of those who are different.  Wachira blends melodies of truth/wisdom with a blend of world and reggae-infused folk music to capture the attention of her listeners.

"Song of Lament" was recorded at Seattle’s historic London Bridge studio, was produced by Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, Atlas Genius, My Chemical Romance) with contributions from Dave West (organ/Rhodes), Teo Shantz (drums), Masa Kobayashi (bass), Tommy Sandovallegos (percussion), Eric Lilavois (percussion), Owuor Arunga (trumpet) and Andrew Joslyn (strings). 

This collection of songs on "Song of Lament" is a testament to Wachira's full embrace of her creative power and its ability to spread goodness to a world churning with chaos and self-inflicted woes born out of fear and mistrust of the "other." It is a stark and heartfelt reflection on the contemporary world and the human experience therein. Throughout the eleven-track collection, Wachira poignantly articulates the pain and chaos of modern times, while also lifting up her enduring and hopeful belief in the fundamental goodness of humanity.

New Video: Allen York - "Ghetto Gospel" / #100Fans

New Video: Allen York - "Ghetto Gospel" / #100Fans



Directed by CreativityQas, New York-based emcee Allen York released the music video to his new single "Ghetto Gospel."

"I wanted to go real simple. Great beat and great raps," Allen York shares with the release of "Ghetto Gospel." The track opens up with York calling out fake rappers boasting a lifestyle they don't live...

All these rappers do, is gossip and rock fake designer.
With no future, they couldn’t imitate designer.
Imitation rhymers.
Couldn’t pick you out a line up. 
I’m tryna make the hood great, while you making crimes up.
The mentality isn’t parallel.
Silver spoon rappers actin like they had to sell.
Was a dweeb who wanted friends, but would tattle tail.
Got knocked and mom and pops had the bail.

Via his official website, "Project Telescope" is expected to be release this fall, but we'll see/hear more  news from Allen York in the upcoming weeks.


Harlem born, Kissimmee bred, hip hop artist Allen York is just your semi-typical young man with dreams to spread his lyricism. Starting to rhyme at the tender age of 10 and putting out tapes at 15, has taken a lot of time for Allen York to get this point. With his unorthodox song making capability and approach to music as a whole, it's good to see someone who's more focused on the craft than the credit. The lyrics are simple enough to relate to, but complicated enough that you may catch something new every time. Allen's main objective is to make sure his cities are represented well, and that others may join him in making Orlando a hip hop power house.

Watch Allen York's music video to "Ghetto Gospel" below.
