This guy loves styling and he is so flamboyant! Before going to Miami’s ‘Club Dream’, former NFL player Chad Ochocinco was spotted on his iPhone, relaxing poolside and hanging out at Urban Outfitters with Pork Chop. As always, this trendy ladies lover rocked a dope outfit! He dressed in a $223 Marcelo Burlan Free Graphic Tee-Shirt . Marcelo started his own collection of tee-shirts and his first offering is filled with graphics that are meant to be worn in an oversized fashion. The graphics are a nod of Marcelo’s Argentinean roots. Ochocinco completed his outfit with white sweatpants and $545 Maree Balenciaga Arena sneakers. What’s your verdict on Ochocinco’s outfit?

French Montana’s ‘Excuse My French’ Cover Art & Tracklisting


I am so proud of French Montana! To see him blossom and become a major rapper in the music industry means a lot. I remember Montana from his humble beginnings during my XXL mag days. I interned there in 2010, when he did his first photo shoot with the publication. Montana came a long way from his younger days in Morocco, Northern Africa. At 13, Montana, his parents and two younger brothers migrated to the Bronx, NY.  His debut, Excuse My French arrives on May 21 (Biggie Smalls birthday) via Bad Boy/Interscope Records. The project will feature the singles “Pop That,” “Marble Floors,” “Freak,” and “Ain’t Worry Bout Nothin“. On the album, Montana get assists from Diddy, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Birdman, Ace Hood, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo and plenty of others. Pre order the album on iTunes!

Montana told Rolling Stone the importance of his Moroccan heritage.

The concept of the cover is to represent my journey from Morocco to New York, from a kid to a hustler, from the beginning to today,” French says. “The deserts represent the dry period of my life when I had nothing and I had to work to get that water and to make a living for me and my family. It was only right that I used my son for that picture. He represents my future and me; I represent his past. It is all about the journey of my life, my music, and my movement.”
