Asanti Declares Herself and Wants The Ladies To Join In

AT

www.Akademiks.com.

Ashanti and Akademiks (as seen on Dr. Jays) has teamed up for some special edition t-shirts . The whole idea works around promoting this online site (that I hope isn’t just something they are doing for her album) called I Declare Me of which is about youths expressing themselves on violence, voting, domestic voilence and so forth (is for the ladies, but I think everybody should be allowed in).

From Dr. Jays:

“I believe in women’s empowerment and standing up for what you believe in,” says Ashanti. “‘I Declare Me’ is a campaign that addresses issues facing young people today such as voting, domestic violence, discrimination and eating disorders.

“I’m happy Akademiks has partnered with me on this project by creating the official ‘I Declare Me’ t-shirts,” she continues. “Get the shirt, wear the shirt and declare yourself, love yourself – ‘Declare Me’.”

I think this is an insightful site that SHOULD last longer than just a promotional push for a album. This is not something that should be just a commercial, this should be something that keeps getting attention and focus and hopefully support from Ashanti. I mean, everything you do doesn’t have to work out, but that don’t mean you don’t try.

The t-shirts are available only at www.Akademiks.com.

Fight the power!!!


Todd Smith Wants Even MORE Clothing Lines

As seen on Dr. Jays, LL Cool J aka Todd Smith is creating another clothing line (other as in other than the the fashion line Todd Smith). This is probably old news if you follow the gossip na dfashion sites, but I figured I would give an opinion too albeit late.

Not sure its a good idea, but if other clothing lines can have the couture line and the everybody else line under one design house, then why not celebrity artist who start clothing lines?

Its a little tired considering that everybody seems to want to create a clothing line and make it national (I think it would be better to stay local, get in the best cultural shops that are in and build hype), but the music biz aint doing to well so you goto diversify.

Anyway, I want to see this new clothing line from LL is doing with Sears. Why, though, are they calling it LL Cool J for Sears? That is like saying Phat Farm for Walmart or 50 Cent at Target. For a taste of what LL has with his Todd Smith line, you can see it at Dr. Jays (or anywhere else they sell it).

The Rocawear I Will Not Loose Campaign – Nicole Bell Will Not Lose

I really like the ” I Will Not Loose” campaign. maybe it just connects with me for some reason. maybe its because I decided a while ago that I won’t loose either and will keep trying until I’m dieing. In my personal opinion,  hope everybody gets what is trying to be said about this campaign. Its not about being cocky or the only people who can say the phrase “I Will Not Loose” are people who are somehow more special than other people. It is about being resolved and being set to move forward toward your dreams and ambitions. You can only loose when you stop trying even though you still want it.

And another thing… you don’t have to do it by yourself. Whatever it is you are reaching for, maybe you should reach out to people who have done it before. Failure is not an option because it only exists when you give up.
