Photo Shoot Fresh: Meek Mill “Dream Chasers” Clothing Line Fashion Shoot

Last month, I reported that fashion designer Marc Ecko is partnering up with MMG rapper Meek Mill for his own clothing line, “Dream Chasers,” to be distributed through Ecko Unlimited. “They was the first person that really, that believed in me,” said Meek. “I’m always into working with the first person that believes in me. Once you get things poppin’, everybody’s gonna start believing in you then, but if the first people that believed in you come with the right situation, it’s always good to start with them,” added Meek. I came across some pictures of Meek’s October 2011 photo shoot in NYC, for his “Dream Chasers” clothing line. Peep the pictures below:

The collaboration is scheduled to hit shelves in 2012. The brand will include varsity jackets, tee shirts, rugby shirts, sweats, jeans and more. When asked where do he see his clothing line partnership with Ecko in the next five years, Meek said “I see a lot of money being made, man,” he said. “A lot of good clothes being put out on the streets.”

Take Care: Drake Talks About His New LP, Ideal Girl & Lil Wayne Vs Jay-Z

Just a few days away from releasing his sophomore album Take Care, Drake chopped it up with GQ magazine. Drake’s success in this industry came over night. His debut album Thank Me Later debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and sold over one-million copies. In his interview with GQ, Drake talked about his forthcoming LP Take Care, his ideal girl and Lil Wayne & Jay-Z’s rap battle. Below are some excerpts:

You announced the title of this album, Take Care, with us back in December. What does it mean? 

No one has actually asked me that yet. I came up with the name when I was on a bus in Birmingham, England, going to a show. “Take Care” is this thing we use in passing conversation to dismiss bullshit like, “Oh, you couldn’t make it on time? Oh, take care, take care.” We’ve always used that and then I really took so much care making this album. I knew I was going to go home and take longer than six months, I knew that I was literally going to take care of making this project and be attentive, be clear, be immersed in it. “Take Care” worked.

Some of the features on this album are crazy. Wayne, Nikki, Rihanna, some unknown guy named Andre 3000…

He murdered that shit! He killed it and 40 switched the beat, it’s nasty. I didn’t get to see him record, but speaking with him was great and we even spoke about projects beyond “The Real Her.”

Who’s the ideal girl for Drake?

Who’s the ideal girl? She is very funny, very supportive, understands that right now I’m trying to build with somebody. The ideal girl is driven, working on something other than modeling or being a singer…

When Lil Wayne and Jay-Z made passing references to each other earlier this year, did you feel like you were in a compromising situation? We know you really look up to Jay and you really look up to Wayne.
Drake: I’m just riding with Wayne, always. I’ll never sit here and say that Wayne compromised me. I’m just doing what I got do. I’m a Cash Money soldier. That’s who I ride for.

Read Drake’s entire feature in GQ here.

On November 15, Drake will be releasing his sophomore album Take Care. The 17 tracks disc, plus two bonus tracks features collaborations with Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, André 3000, Rick Ross, and more.

Fashion Me Dope: Swizz Beatz In @ReebokClassics Kamikaze III “NY Knicks” & G-Star Raw Shirt

Music producer and designer Swizz Beatz was on his New York sh*t in a recent photo. Swizzy was rocking a pair of Reebok Kamikaze III “NY Knicks” in Blue/ Black – Orange colorway, with the matching NY Knicks cap and a G-Star Raw shirt. I am so proud of Swizzy success. He went from being a regular kid living in the Bronx, New York to becoming a major figure in the entertainment industry. He collaborated and partnered with a few major companies including Aston Martin, Reebok, Lotus, Audemars-Piguet and Christian Louboutin.

The Sky is not the limits, it’s just the view

“When I say the sky is not the limit, it’s just the view, that’s something I came up with because I think people are comfortable when they reach a certain level and lose the hunger,” he said. “I don’t think there should be any boundaries on exploring the next level. If you can stand up on the moon and look up in the air from there, it’s still just a view, you can go up higher than that. I use that slogan to inspire people to do whatever their wildest dreams are, to just go for it,” Swizz Beat/Haute Living magazine.

Perfect Picture: Chris Brown Hugged-Up With Model Suelyn Medeiros [THEY’RE NOT DATING]

Earlier in the week, R&B singer Chris Brown and Brazilian model Suelyn Medeiros were photo’d hugged-up together and making funny faces inside of Breezy’s hotel room. As soon as the pictures leaked on the Interweb, some sites reported that they are a couple, but those rumors are false. A rep for Chris Brown told RumorFix that his client and Suelyn are “just friends taking pictures together … nothing more.” Gosh, what friends can’t take pictures together anymore? I HATE when blogs report rumors or false stories.

The designer spent over two months hand making the tub, which is a girly pink. Gosh, life must be nice! Lol.
