Jeremy Scott, the American fashion designer from Kansas City, Missouri continues to surprise us as he breaks the borders between sport and fashion. From his collections with Adidas and Swatch to Lil Waynes feet , there’s no where you don’t see Jeremy these days!
That’s why when I saw these photos of the lovely Mademoiselle Yulia rockin’ pieces from his Spring Summer 2012 line, it was only expected that Scott would find her to be an inspiration. If you haven’t heard me rave on about Mademoiselle Yulia here’s the scoop: she’s a Japanese powerhouse who DJ’s, sings, and designs her own jewelry line, GIZA.
You can purchase his footwear and apparel over at the Adidas web-store. My favs are the Gold Wings jacket and Stars and Stripes bathing suit.
Team together these two and these beautiful photos and outfits are the product!
Check out the new SS 2012 collection plus a bonus behind the scene video below:
LETS GET TRILL. SCREWED UP. PO’D UP. Whatever you may call it – Mommy Warbuck$ and SUGAR FREE are back at it again with their January event dubbed SCREWED UP.
Already from the get, im feeling the whole vibe to this event. “What I got up in my cup? That purple stuff” – sorry a ton of purple drank references keep coming to me as I write this post. But of course you cant have a SUGAR FREE event without local love and along with the usual performances and dope sounds from the DJ – there will be a special chopped & screwed exhibit by @THEEOHMYARTIST.
We’re talking styrofoam cups, DJ Screw on the speakers, photo booth, and purple drank specials all night. Hey we aren’t encouraging drugz but sometimes you just have to get on Lil Wayne’s level and slow it down.
Come join 2DOPEBITCHES along with J.NiCs, Steven A. Clark, and Canvas along with Sean Bang on the table’s and JUSTDIMY on the mic hosting it all. Check out the info below and some music from the artists who will be performing at the hazy event as well!
Steven A. Clark
Clark will be debtuing some Chopped & Screwed material for us! You don’t want to miss it!
I miss these types of mixtapes. Remember the kind that actually had a mixture of songs from different artists which were the hottest songs at that moment in time. Yeah, those. This mixtape which was released for this years Art Basel is dope with songs like J.Cole‘s Mr. Nice Watch and the Niggas In Paris Remix with T.I. – so get back to feeling like its middle school summer and download this mixtape from Air Force King himself DJ Clark Kent – and of course presented by the always reppin it, MI GENTE CLOTHING and COOL Js.
Beautiful ladies right ?
Or not !
These incredibly beautiful and feminine models are actually not women at all. This is a product of the 21st Century. The greased-up blond-haired beauty is actually Australian male model Andrej Pejic and the leggy Brunette ? He is the first transsexual high fashion model from the sexy country of Brazil , Leandro Cerezo , more famously known as Lea T.
Andrej is only 19 years old and he’s already modeled for both women and mens designer clothing. Gucci , Jean Paul Gaultier , and Marc Jacob have all featured the long-haired hunk in their runway shows and print ads along with countless magazine spreads which highlight and play on the model’s androgyny ( a mix of masculine and feminine features ). I highly respect the fact that he chooses to model women’s clothes and mens , tittering on the line between gender and what the world sees as “beauty”. He’s even modeled for street-wear chic women line Made Me - and I totally thought it was a flat-chested woman the whole time! incredible!
Lea T. is the first of her (him?) kind. Shes beautiful , has an incredible body , and that long brown hair of hers (HIS?!) is to die for. The son of the famous Brazilian football player Toninho Cerezo , he was born as a “male” – but felt as if he had been placed in the wrong body , known as ”Gender Identity Disorder”. Known for her full lips and sexy long legs , she’s worked as the face of Givenchy both on the runway and in spreads – as well as graced the pages of Vogue Paris, Interview Magazine, and Love magazine (pictured below) , where she’s seen kissing supermodel Kate Moss in a hot spread.
On occasion, the fashion world takes the unfamiliar and what others sees as “strange” and turns it into a thing of beauty and praise. A world where men can model women’s clothing? That’s what I mean when I say a product of the 21st century , because never would I have imagined that this type of acceptance would be coming from the fashion industry. In a way , these two models - Andrej and Lea T. are making strides for others everywhere to become accepted in whatever they choose to pursue.
Check out more pictures after the jump (you know you want to) , as well as an interesting interview with Lea T. and Oprah - where she discusses where she hides her junk , her upcoming sex change surgery , and how she’s deals with her sexuality issues.
Thanks to MTV for hipping us to this white girl mob eyeliner guru a.k.a Kreayshawn, cause Gucci and Prada aint poppin’! Lay off that Neiman Marcus flow and go thrifting, throw on some nerd glasses and line those peepers ladies! At least if you want that steeze. Can you pull it off??? Norma and I already know a thing or two about digging through old clothes and doing a lil cat eye action. Who’s next??
Things got a little sloppy during the eyeliner battle but guess who won? [Check out the video here!]
And here’s a few more tutorials for all you basic hoes out there
Here at 2DOPEBITCHES.com, we truly appreciate great music from local artists who are out there on their grind! And one group of talented individuals who are definitely on the up and up is SilentHand. Not familiar with these guys? Well if you live/party in Miami I’m certain you’ve seen them around however, we caught up with them and interviewed them so you can see what’s going on in their world and what to expect next!
Check out this week’s music by SilentHand’s Ghost 13 below!!
Here’s a bit about these cool guys:
If you haven’t already heard, there’s a new band of misfits SilentHand is a local experimental hip-hop group focused on blending different sounds and interests into musical masterpieces. Two emcees comprise the actual rap portion of the group. LUNATIK, all caps, holds the beat down with a versatile flow and a quick delivery. Ghost13, a.k.a your friendly neighborhood emcee, always finds a way to crack a joke or two in even the most serious of tracks. Together, they supply the game with a fresh take on hip-hop, taking the alternate route and focusing on topics ranging from real life issues to searching the mall for your favorite sneaks and even stories as crazy as trying to rob those same malls and failing!
So we asked:
2DB: When did you start making music and how have you changed since the beginning?
SH: We began making music in our early teen years, individually. As far as the group, we formed and began making music in high school. Our style is a lot different now than it was back then. Before it sounded like NYC circa 1996 but now it’s a lot more experimental.
2DB: Who would you say are your biggest influences (musicians, artists, cartoons, historical figures, etc)
SH: For the most part our influences come from our lifestyle. Sometimes it’s our family. Sometimes it’s religion. Sometimes it’s an episode of Bleach! Because we aren’t mainstream we can grab inspiration from everywhere and throw it to a beat. As far as artists, we get a lot of inspiration from people like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, J Dilla, Mos Def, The Roots, Jimi Hendrix… the list could go on. But we also get a lot of inspiration from newer artists like Kid CuDi, Lupe Fiasco, Blu, Curren$y. Its full circle.
Backing the duo are two producers that kind of have a “friendly wager” placed on which of their styles is better: The melodic and soulful boom baps of Chize or the lively and upbeat samples of Frantz Mza. Coupled with sharp-witted lyrics, the group manages to produce diverse tunes that capture ears and minds alike. Whether or not it can be boxed into a category such as sneakerhead, hipster, or back-pack is still and will most likely always be up for debate. The truth of the matter is SilentHand could care less about what category you put them in just as long as you make room for a Super Nintendo.
Then we asked:
2DB: What are you working on for the future that you would want people to know about now? (like a teaser..)
SH: Well after we drop the Stroke of Genius mixtape from Ghost, we plan on releasing a solo mixtape by LUNATIK, followed by another possible solo project from Ghost, then a group ep by the end of the year. Right now we really wanna focus on collaborating with local artists and promoting the music. Our movement is really just about art and self-expression meeting life and culture.
Recently, the group has been spending countless nights writing, producing, and recording new music for fans to enjoy. That’s why in an effort to get the word out SilentHand is presenting SilentHand Sundays, a weekly online event aimed at exposing and promoting new material. Everything including show performances, dope tracks, video premieres, pics, and stories is going to be released every week until the release of the next major project. On the menu this time around is Ghost13’s second solo mixtape dubbed Stroke of Genius. Even though this compilation isn’t due to drop until mid-summer, you can catch installments from the mixtape as part of SilentHand Sundays on the group’s Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, and blog. So next time you want to hear something fresh, dope, and different, just check out these local artists for your fix. We just hope Jesus won’t mind sharing his Sundays with Silenthand!
AND these guys were dope enough to even shout us out:
SH: We just wanted to give a shout out to all the creative minds behind 2Dope Bitches. Miami needs more diversity and y’all are definitely bringing that to the table. It’s official. SilentHand ENT and 2Dope Bitches are taking the city hostage and demanding the world next!!!
If when you think “Joe Budden” the only thought that comes to mind is “Pump It Up” – then you are horribly misinformed. This New Jersey rapper has been in the rap scene for years past his debut album in 2003 , which featured singles like “Fire” and yeahh “Pump It Up” – but that’s not your 2011 Joe Budden. For years in the underground scene Joe has been hustling under the radar (and in the strip clubs) working on mixtapes and EPs. Classic Mixtapes include Mood Muzik and Padded Room, – and his group Slaughterhouse (alongside MCs Royce da 5′ 9’’, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I) recently was signed to Shady Records.
Can’t fail to mention Joes new found online presence with the help of Twitter, U Stream , and blogs – he’s put his life front and center to the world which has helped him get his music out to more people. I personally think Joe Budden is a fool and fuckin hilarious on Twitter. (@JoeBudden if you don’t follow him!) – in-between dating Tahiry and making her the shit and talking back to people who try him on Twitter , he’s fucking crazy and seems like a real cool guy.
Looking forward to the show this Friday brought to you by Bread and Butter Events and Major Event Marketing, and our homie DJ Keen One on the tables, woo! Its gonna go down (basement) – ticjkets are $20 bucks . Make sure to say whaddup to your two fav bitches in attendance!

Real Live Instruments. Soft-Sultry Voice. Free EP Release. New exciting Music. This is what you get when you put Miami native Cris Cab in a venue like Grand Central . Cris Cab is a talented artist from our sunny city whos talent includes playing the gultar and mixing in ornginal lyrics with a tropical twist to his music. Hes only a high-school senior , but this hot young man is really making some noise in the music scene.
Cris Cab seems to be Pharrell’s new protégé because usually wherever Cris Cab performs in Miami the Neptune producer shows up. With his stamp on it , you know Mr.Cab is a great listen. He’s done some impressive covers of songs in his own reggae style revision like Wiz Khalifas “Black and Yellow” (my personal favorite) and Kanye West’s “All of the Light”. But he’s also done his own oringinal music like his newest single , “Good Girls”.
Im sure his performance will be a new refreshing change from the usual so make sure you head out to Grand Central tonight , tickets are 10$ advanced online and $15 at the door , you know us dope bitches will be in attendence.

So, I’m not very much into wrestling. I remember back in 5th grade I tried to force myself to watch WWE Raw to try to like it cause all the little boys I liked were obsessed with it but I couldn’t catch on. But what I do like is Jersey Shore and apparently so does the WWE world because they have featured Snookie on two episodes of the thing and now because of her recent match with Vickie Guerrero and Layla and Michelle McCool along side WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus – she been challenged to a match at WrestleMania XXVII (which aired live from Atlanta on Sunday, April 3) – and guess what … she kicks ass! . “Lets get readyy to rumbbllleee!”
Oh snap , Snookies’s pay-per-view status! But she isn’t he first lady of Jersey Shore to get involved with wrestling , J WOWW and Angelica have made appearances on Total Nonstop Action wrestling too. Whos next ? Will Sammi and Ronny finally bash it out on the stage? Or maybe Sammi and J Woow ? Probably not but for sure Snooki a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi knows how to kick some ass and take some names !
Check out the video below of the footage of Snooki and the rest of the hilarious action down at WWE Raw and WrestleMania , I gotta admit it was pretty entertaining. Snookie knows how to put on a show!
