Bailey Jay, Baller Alert, and Billboard: Baller Alert's Today in Hip-Hop: T.l. Released King' 12 Years Ago @balleralert TI,KING Baller Alert’s Today in Hip-Hop: T.I. Released ‘King’ 12 Years Ago-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 12 years ago today, T.I. released his fourth album ‘King’ on Grand Hustle Records and Atlantic Records. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Featuring production from some hip-hop heavy hitters such as Just Blaze, Mannie Fresh, Swizz Beatz, and The Neptunes, ‘King’ quickly took the Atlanta native's career to new heights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Released alongside the film “ATL,” where T.I. made his feature film debut as the main character, the album served as the soundtrack for the film. Not only did it represent T.I.’s career elevating to new levels, but it also showed that he could develop a more mainstream hip-hop sound, without losing his thug persona, and still reign supreme. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart with over 522,000 copies sold in the first week. The album also included two hit singles that had major chart success with "What You Know" and "Why You Wanna". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ By the end of the year, multiple publications like Pitchfork had dubbed the album one of the top albums of the year.

Fashion, Kanye, and Memes: Virgil Abloh Named Louis Vuitton's New Menswear Designer @balleralert Virgil Abloh Named Louis Vuitton’s New Menswear Designer -blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The founder of streetwear brand Off-White and Kanye West’s longtime creative director, Virgil Abloh, has been named Louis Vuitton’s New Menswear Designer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Abloh is the first African American artistic director, and one of the few black designers at the top of a French heritage house. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The designer expressed his excitement about the new position, saying, “I feel elated. This opportunity to think through what the next chapter of design and luxury will mean at a brand that represents the pinnacle of luxury was always a goal in my wildest dreams. And to show a younger generation that there is no one way anyone in this kind of position has to look is a fantastically modern spirit in which to start.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bringing Abloh onboard is going to bring a new look and vibe to the men’s collection. “Product is only one part of the luxury narrative,” he continued. “I want to use Louis Vuitton’s history with travel to really look at different cultures around the world to help make all our humanity visible. When creativity melds together with global issues, I believe you can bring the world together. Fashion on this level can really open eyes.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Abloh has taken on a new position, he will continue to run Off-White, which he says is for his 17-year-old self. Louis Vuitton will represent who he is today at 37-years-old. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Louis Vuitton’s menswear collection will make its debut in June for Paris Men Fashion Week. Congratulations to Virgil Abloh on your new position!
