Back from Notting Hill Carnival, I first got to give a big thanks to my people at Urban Nerds, Mad Decent, Red Bull, Schlachthofbronx and Bruk magazine. The seen. team had a great time in London and we keep constantly asking ourselves why the hell we haven´t been to NHC before. We will be there next year again, that´s for sure.
Then it´s time to catch up with the latest in the world of Jamaican popular culture:
Terry Lynn has a full-page feature in the September edition of Vogue magazine.
To be honest is my 3rd from French is a bit rusty but the article says that she is the new hotness that everyone needs to get hip to and also made some Daft Punk, Grace Jones comparisons. Long and short big up to Terry, the Rickards Bros. and the Afflicted Yard for keeping the fire blazing cause foreign is more than Canada, England and USA. Kingston Logic to the werl.
