A Look Inside LA’s U-Mini Burger: spin-off of famed Umani Burger
The owner/founder of Umani Burger, Adam Fleischman, sat down to talk about the difference between his famous, California food spot(s) Umani Burger and his new project, U-Mini Burger, as well as what separates U-Mini from the rest of the fast food restaurants around the City Of Angels. Apparently, the burgers don’t lose a single bit of soul or integrity between Umani & U-Mini either- just a little bit of the price. In fact, the 1/4 lb. burgers look so good that you might consider relocating to Los Angeles just to be closer to them.
Up-and-coming Chicago resident, The Holy Ki†, managed to bless us with his debut, full-length project overnight. Entitled NewWavey, the release is everything you would expect from Kit after hearing his singles “Fuck You" & "Profit Prophet" and, to no surprise, is executive produced by Chicago-based production team The-Drum.
With guest slots from The GTW (a production credit) & Jeremiah Meece of The-Drum fame, Kit mans the drugged-out, syrupy rap opus solo dolo. Stream the mixtape right here and grab it via Mediafire. Smoke to it & get #LOWNT. It’s the only way to go.
Parisian streetwear brand BWGH (Brooklyn We Go Hard) recently released images from the lookbook surrounding their upcoming fall/winter collection. The “Stonehaven” collection was shot on the same Scottish countryside which inspired the fabrics & colors for the collection. Proper trousers, shirts, jackets & more in beautifully rich earth tones made with the customer looking good regardless of living in a city like Paris or roughing it in the middle of nowhere (like the model above who looks like he’s not happy about the weather).
Stay tuned for release dates and peep Hypebeast TV’s latest episode of Hypebeast Spaces which just happens to be all about the new BWGH store that recently opened in the Cité de la Mode et du Design. They sit down with brand co-founder David Obadia to talk about the past, present & future of Brooklyn We Go Hard.
