My Work :: Asha Kamali for 2010 Soul Train Awards


A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with and styling actress/personality Asha Kamali! She hosted the red carpet on behalf of SoulTrain.com and the American Heart Association, interviewing all your favorite celebrity guests, for the 2010 Soul Train Awards and backstage at the American Heart Association's Red Lounge. She looked AMAZING in the creme, one-sholder Deniesh cocktail dress I pulled for her!

The show filmed in Atlanta Wednesday, November 10th, and the aired on BET and CENTRIC Monday, November 29th.

I LOVE Asha! Had a great time working with her and very much look forward to the next time!

Check out the links below to see her in action!

Check Out :: Kanye, Kendrick & 88 Keys

KANYE WEST X MY BEAUTIFUL TWISTED NIGHTMARE

So, there's not much that needs to be explained with this one. I'm not suggesting that you get Kanye's new album because I don't think you have it cause I'm already assuming that you ALL have it and have enjoyed it as much as I have. It's merely out of respect for what I consider Ye's first classic album; boasting 13 perfectly composed tracks.

If for some reason you've been living under a rock and you don't already own My Beautiful Twisted Nightmare, click here and download it at iTunes.

88 KEYS X ADAM'S CASE FILES (MIXTAPE)

So, if you keep up with my music posts then you already know that I have a tendency to sleep on new tunes because I'm either not checking the right sources or I'm not yet ready to listen. Well here we go again with 88 Keys. Thanks to my brother Fonzworth Bentley's tweet last week, I learned that the super elusive producer has a "new" mixtape out. As you can see via 88 Keys' tweet to me, it wasn't really brand new, but new to me nonetheless. As always he delivers nothing but the best. My ears are very thankful!

KENDRICK LAMAR X OVERLY DEDICATED (EP)

Yet again, I was sleeping. This time, on Compton, CA-native Kendrick Lamar. I heard all the buzz from all my producers friends like Curtiss King and Tae Beast, but for some reason did not take the time to download and listen. Tssk tssk. This self-proclaimed EP became a constant in my car, home and at the gym in November. I still can't get over how amazing the intro is. He spits with SO much passion that he chokes towards the end. Excellence is an understatement for this mixtape.

If you were sleeping like me, click here and download Overly Dedicated.
