got it in at Chick Fil A finally….
the lines are usually only 30 minutes long! GTFOH!
Diamond released their collab with DGK and I grabbed some of these for my feets….
and continuing talk of diamond supply Co…
so let’s get into some work….
I don’t usually ever make anything that has anything to do with Nike, but this client was given to me from my big homey Mr Cartoon….. and this client was from Australia! so Good Day Mate and Just Do It…..
black gold Air Force I with white diamonds…. the contrast is so clean and in the sunlight it’s such a crazed looking set up!
the ill part about this is my guy didn’t even cut this mold from another mold like Gabriels… he just walked across to the shoe store and eyeballed an actual AF1 from 5 angles and made this shit by hand like he always does! FUCK WITH ME FENDI!
and we also made a 1 of 1 new shape solar IN4MATION diamond dial G-Shock for an old buddy of mine who is hardcore into reggae and the rasta lifestyle…..
and on some cutesy type shit….
fully iced out white gold or yellow gold hour glass charms
I’ve never seen any before… and time is money, so spend some money on a loved one by buying a diamond hour glass piece and then spend some time with them lol
friday night, I got some bad food with my cousin at Cheesecake factory….
caught up with the homies from Diamond at the Grove… but they didn’t stay to watch a movie except for a couple of them…. We watched Ides of March and after about 25 min of previews… short attention span and then 20 min of the actual movie, I wanted to kill myself with the turtle pace of the film… so we ALL walked out….. decided that since we’re there, lets go see something…. we walked into Real Steel and shit wasn’t bad! lol… it was definitely a younger kids movie but it was feel good and it did the job….
that was my boring ass friday
now ready for my boring ass saturday????
woke up late because I was watching korean movies on netflix….
then I headed over to Downtown LA to my boy Proh’s crib because FM was performing at Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory for the Rob Dyrdek charity foundation….
man, when we got there, it was packed outside!
we did the red carpet and for some reason, even though it was late in the day, I had not eaten anything yet…. there were 3 huge food trucks parked inside the roped off area and all the food was free and there was a full bar and that was free too… the only thing is that I didn’t get to eat ANYTHING! I was too busy talking shit and catching up with some old fam.
(off top, shout out to my boys Terry Kennedy, Rudy Gay, Kev D, Drama, Travvy, D-No, Tyrone, Chanel and Talisa)
so we walk into the Factory and my boy DJ SKEE is djing, so I know it’s a family affair for real…. we walk up to the green room immediately because it’s 94 degrees inside the factory smh….
there’s mad beverages though inside with AC pumping…. some snacks… but NO food! haha
seen the homey Rob Dyrdek and we chopped it up about Rolex’s and grown man shit for a while…. then my boy Steve-O walked in and he always makes me laugh…
then, I asked Steve-O to show me his back tattoo
the homegirl Dev came through….. and something that has never happened before happened….
obviously you know who she is by now if you listen to music at all…. she has a #1 hit right now too with Dancing in the Dark and she had Bass down Low and was the girl who sang the hook on “like a G6″…. so Kev asked her if she would join them to perform and it was all LOVE! the crazy part is that Dev is pregant!(7 months… CONGRATS! I’m so fucking happy for you and JIMMY!) and she still went up there and did it like she made the song yesterday!
you know where I was standing during the peformance…..
then the REJ3CTZ came up and did their Cat Daddy song….
main dude in the group walked up to me and gave me the ultimate daps!
said “Ben Balla, you the muthafuckin man MANG!”
walked outside to get some fresh air and chop it up…. and low and behold…
the car service took us back to FM’s crib….
then I shook real fast over to Undefeated to grab a special gift from my man James Bond!
again… THANK YOU SO MUCH JAMES! BIG HOMEY!
I been wanting these so bad, but never knew the release date and I don’t keep u with kicks too tough these days… I pretty much only rock Vans authentics or eras and some supras… but these are for my sunday brunch swag!
there was some other heat up at UNDFTD too!
so I shot back to my house real real quick to walk and feed the doggy…..
then shot over to Staples center because the homies Dingo and Caleb had an extra VIP seat for me in their boys suite… SWEET!
btw, still haven’t ate yet and it’s 6:30pm!!!!!
I got to staples and ate everything in fucking sight before I even said hi to Skee or the homies or the dude who owned the suite who is a really cool dude btw, who owns a hangover drink called “NOHO”
now usually I prefer to watch any pay per view fight on TV at the convenience of my home… but this was at a suite with homies and I had no plans… so I didn’t mind… nothing like sitting ring side at any good fight….
BUT MAN SMFH
48 seconds into the 2nd round, some bullshit of all bullshit… I mean I’ve seen 3 fuckery situations happen in my lifetime in the sport of boxing…. the roy jones disqualification during his hay day…. the mike tyson biting and then the bullshit disqualification late in his career… this would make it #4 and mannnn…. I felt bad for the people who paid a lot of money to see this bullshit! just youtube it because I don’t even know what to say… I expected waaay more out of Bernard Hopkins smh
I went home mad… no lie, the crowd leaving staples was mad!
shit, thank god I valet’d at the Ritz because I woulda been more pissed if I paid the VIP $200 valet fee at staples….
but anyways, went home and simmered down. I need to do some yoga or some shit to relax more lol
Sunday was my family day… spent the morning with my moms….
later in the evening spent the night with my brother and nephews….
we went to this amazing restaurant called “Waterloo & City” in culver city and damn!
this is a foodie snobs dream spot!
food was great… we ordered tons of apps and everything was delicious….
but I ordered the wrong thing for my entree’ smh
it was good, but I should slap myself for ordering a burger from a gourmet restaurant with a fantastic kitchen smh because everything other than that was Excellent for real!
I ate my nephews food lol smh
but my brother ordered the ribeye and it was crazy
earlier in the day, I was on the block and seen the greatest cap I’ve ever seen….
I mean, I’ve been rocking Comme Des Garcon for a long time now…. always been a fan and always kept a few small things in the closet here and there….
to kill some time… I checked out some watches online and these 3 watches are seriously maybe the most beautiful watches I’ve ever seen…. everything OEM factory made. nothing after market and the work is just flawless
