REST IN PEACE: ENNIO MORRICONE RIP

REST IN PEACE: ENNIO MORRICONE RIP

Rest in Peace to Ennio Morricone, the god of film scores. His music for films like The Good The Bad and The Ugly, The Untouchables, The Hateful Eight and Django Unchained are the stuff of legend.

Ennio’s work was massively influential for us. He was a true film icon, a titan of music and cinema who cannot be replaced.

Andare con Dio!

RIP Ennio Morricone

REST IN PEACE: RIP BUSHWICK BILL ONE YEAR GONE. RIP

Bushwick Bill in the studio, 2018. Photo by The Wolf (@RiotStyle).

Tough to think Bushwick Bill has been gone a year. There will be stories for another day but this is how we will always remember Bushwick: In the lab, hard at work on the next project, talking about taking care of his family.

Bushwick Bill would also want you to know: He was Jamaican.
— The Wolf

Bushwick Bill gone, but not forgotten.

RIP

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCE! RESPECT TO THE PURPLE ONE! RIP

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCE! RESPECT TO THE PURPLE ONE! RIP

A few words from The Wolf about Prince on the occasion of The Purple One’s birth, which occurred on this day of June 7th, 1958.

Prince IS Black Excellence. Prince could play 17 different instruments. Prince once put so much stank on a guitar solo that the guitar evaporated and Tom Petty shit his pants. Prince could dunk a basketball on Charlie Murphy and YES he could make pancakes.

When Prince wanted to change his name he said “FUCK YOU” to every single letter of the alphabet and invented a symbol. Prince paid Kevin Smith a sack of money to make a documentary about his house just so he could put it on a shelf and NOT release it (look it up!)

YOU will never be Prince.

Happy Birthday Prince
— The Wolf

Happy Birthday oh Purple One, wherever you are!

RIP

JUSTICE FOR BREONNA TAYLOR!

JUSTICE FOR BREONNA TAYLOR!

This is Breonna Taylor. She worked as an ER Tech and EMT. Cops busted into this woman’s apartment and shot her to death while processing a “no-knock” arrest warrant for an ex-boyfriend Breonna hadn’t seen in two years. The Police executing the raid didn’t realize her ex-boyfriend had already been located at the time of her murder.

We demand recognition of the lives lost to excessive force and police brutality in the United States.

Demand justice for Breonna Taylor.

RIP Breonna Taylor

GEORGE FLOYD – NO JUSTICE NO PEACE! DEMAND JUSTICE FOR GEORGE FLOYD

GEORGE FLOYD – NO JUSTICE NO PEACE! DEMAND JUSTICE FOR GEORGE FLOYD

Police must be held accountable for the death of unarmed black men.

The police must stop murdering people of color for things like (allegedly) counterfeiting things or selling cigarette packs.

Demand justice for George Floyd. No justice, no peace. Know justice, know peace.

REST IN PEACE GEORGE FLOYD
