Kid Staxx Interview With The TFSociety

Recently we were afforded the opportunity to interview Kid Staxx and get his opinions on a few things. Dude definitely makes dope music and gives some good answers. questions are indicated by this > and answers are in bold. Check out what he has to stay below.

And check out the visuals for “98 Polo Sport” under the interview.

>1. Where are you from?
Im From The North Side Of Houston, TX.

My Experiences In My City Have Definitely Influenced Me To Make Great Music Because I Rap What I See From The Style, Haters, Positive, Fun Times And All That.
> 3. Whats your goal for your career in music?
A lot Of People Are In It For The Money And Fame But I’m In It For The Passion But Wouldn’t Mind Making A Few Dollars (HaHa) But My Goal Is To Make Music Everybody Can Enjoy And That’s What Has Been Happening So Far And I’m Glad.
> 4. Aside from reaching your career goals what are some of your other aspirations?
Some Of My Other Aspirations Are To Get A Scholarship For College And Get A Masters Degree. This Is Because No Matter How Well My Career May Go I Will Get An Education Because I Know That’s Something Nobody Can Take From Me.
> 5. How do you feel about the current state of hip-hop?
I Mean The Way I Feel About It Is Half And Half. This Is Because There Are So Many People Out There Making Good Music But They Recognize The Ones That Lack In Quality Just Because Certain People Like It. That’s The Way I Pretty Much Feel About Hip Hop And Its Current State.
> 6. Who in the game would you like to work with most and why?
The People I Would Probably Would Want To Work With Would Be Dizzy Wright, Robb Bank$ And The Whole Bakers Club.

I Would Like To Work With The Whole Bakers Club Because They Are All Different And So Smooth.
> 7. Who are your favorite artist in the game right now?
My Favorite Artist In The Game Would Be Between Robb Bank$, Dizzy Wright And Lo Thraxx. This Is Because They Are All Amazing And Just Have This Certain Style To Them That Is Just So Cool And Wavy Mixed In With The Raw Lyricism And Wordplay.

I Would Say Make Music You Truly Love To Make And Like Because Fans Matter But At The End Of The Day You Have To Like It.

The TFSociety Chops It Up With Tatiana Ilia

 

Click

In our journey we have came across many different talents. With this beautiful young lady we’ve came across a talent with a will to change, and unselfish motives. Tatiana Ilia has been designing unique costume jewelry (Ilia by Tatiana Ilia) for about a year now and we f*ck with her movement. It is one with style and class. On Sunday June 17th we chopped it up in the Witches Brew and heres what we found out…

Q: What to do you do?

A: I make costume jewelry for my line Ilia by Tatiana Ilia.

Click To Shop

Q: What inspires you?

A: I’ve always had a love for costume jewelry and fashion. But more importantly I’ve had an interest in philanthropy and giving back to other countries and sometime in the near future I would like to intertwine my line with many philanthropic ventures.

Q: What Is philanthropy?

A: Philanthropy is giving back to others in different areas, communities, countries or states in any which way that you can. Whether it’s providing food, shelter, money, or moral support.

Click

Q: How do you plan on intertwining your line with philanthropy?

A: I plan on intertwining my line with philanthropy by going to Haiti which is my land of origin, and creating a factory so that women can work to create a means of income for themselves. The factory will also serve as a safe house to provide those women with somewhere to stay and life coaches.

Q: What kind of music are you listening to right now?

A: I listen to everything from rap to r&b to indie. I don’t discriminate with music.
 
Q: Do you feel that music and fashion coincide?

A: I think they do coincide with each other because music has the power of changing your mood, how you feel, what your thinking and your creative views.

Q: Who’s your favorite artist right now?

A: I can’t say that I have a favorite artist in particular but on artist that has a great influence on me is Jay-Z because I admire his ambition, his progression, his perseverance, and business ventures. He is the opitamy of rags to riches because he has risen up from his adversities and made a positive impact on his life and many lives.

Q: What is style?

A: Style is individuality. Making what you wear your own.

Click

Q: Do you feel style is important to Society (why)?

A: I don’t think that style is important to structuring a society but it is important in regards to expressing yourself as an individual.

Q: If there is one thing you could do at this very moment what would it be?

A: Go to Haiti and learn more about the culture and the people because I haven’t gone there since I was a little girl. And I feel like when I was younger I took everything that I saw over there for granted and now that I am older I would be able to embrace the culture and people of Haiti more.

Q: Whats the next step for your brand?

A: The next step for my brand is to make it known within the United States.

Q: How would you like to change the world?

A: I would like to change the world by ending discrimination and trying to get people to be grateful for the life they have been given and to live their life with a positive purpose so that they could impact others around them.

Cook!

Q: How do you feel about the Basedgod?

A: Your talking about Lil B? I don’t much about him, I’m sorry.

The Game

 

If theres one thing you can take to the heart from the TFSociety it is that everything is deeper than its face value. Now being that that goes for everything and being that it is 2012 its about time we begin to keep you informed on a subject we hold dear to our hearts. The sneaker game.

Now as a true sneakerhead should know, its deeper than a game, its a culture (click for true definition). With that being said before I even delve into the depth of this ocean I have to describe the difference between a sneakerhead and a sneakerfiend. A sneakerhead knows the history. A sneakerhead has a true passion for the culture and isn’t truely worried about whats hot (the hype). A sneakerfiend may have little to no knowledge on the history of the culture but will still be hype about the hype (hypebeast (click for true definititon)). Now as a true sneakerhead myself I appreciate the sneakerfiend, as should all sneakerheads. The sneakerfiend adds a mainstream breath to the culture. The sneakerfiend makes it even more honorable to be a sneakerhead. With that being said we are here for everyone sneakerheads and sneakerfiends alike.

But…Before we even begin to keep you updated with the latest sneaker news and releases we have to give you a history lesson.

Sneakers have been around for about 180 years. It all began when a man by the name of Wait Webster of NEW YORK decided to attach rubber soles to shoe and boot uppers in 1832. They were the first athletic shoes. The soles were so quiet they were adopted by burgalrs who used them for “sneaking” earning them the name sneakers.

The first rubber soled canvas shoe was manufactured in 1868. It was called a “croquet scandal” as the rich used to take them to their beach pavilions or the club for a quite game of tennis. At this time they were listed in The Peck and Snyder Sporting Goods Catalog for about 6$ (mad money).

By 1873 sneakers no longer “sneaked” as ads revealed them as sneakers and in 1897 Sears  offered them at around $.60 (60 cents, less money).

Now lets skip a couple of years to the game changer.

Early in 1984, Nike was a struggling shoe company. Their sales were dying and they needed a new breath of life. At the same time, rookie player Michael Jordan was already endorsing several products, but Nike hoped that his appeal would generate sales. Jordan had always preferred Adidas or the Converse shoes endorsed by North Carolina Coach, Dean Smith, and hoped to sign with either company. Converse was not interested in offering a better deal than Nike and Adidas wasn’t interested at all at the time. While Jordan did not see the significance of Nike’s offer at first his agent David Falk saw amazing opportunity in Nike’s offer to create a new line of shoes called “Air Jordans” and urged him to give Nike a chance.

At that time there was not a tremendous impact from a shoe endorsement. Few companies were willing to risk so much of their marketing budget to bet on one athlete to promote their products. But Nike saw something special in Michael Jordan. They saw opportunity. He was a champion. With a great deal of persuasion from his manager and parents Jordan agreed to fly to the Nike headquarters in Portland, Oregon to view a special video presentation and proposal.

The video presentation featured slow-motion clips of Jordan’s college career and some of his high-flying Olympic moves with a background of then hit music “Jump” by the Pointer Sisters. Nike Head Designer, Peter Moore presented sketches of AJ1 shoes, jumpsuits, and sports apparel, all in black and red. Michael’s remarks upon seeing the designs were less than enthusiastic. He is reported to have said,

“I can’t wear that shoes, those are Devil colors”

Throughout the entire meeting Jordan was reported to seem uninterested but as he and Falk left the meeting Jordan said to his agent “Let’s make the deal.”

The Air Jordan legacy was given first breath. Nike signed Jordan to a $2.5 million deal for 5 years, plus royalties and other fringe benefits. Peter Moore created the first AJ Logo.



The introduction of the Air Jordan I (check the feet)

turned the athletic shoe industry . Before the ones most basketball shoes were white, but the bold black and red styling of the sneaker stirred the controversy. The NBA banned the shoe from the league but Jordan wore them anyway.  This led to fines of up to $5000 a game but Nike was more than happy to pay these to keep the shoes in the publics eye. With all this controversy and Jordan’s spectacular numbers Air Jordans were on the road to becoming a household name.

And it began. The culture we are all subjected to today began here. Now the culture has a vast array of these collectors items from Jordans , to Nike Sbs, to Lebrons, to Foamposites, Kobes, Barkleys, Griffeys, the list just doesn’t stop.

From here on in The TFSociety will keep you updated on everything you need to know. Just go to the sneakers tab at the top of the site for all sneaker information.

And if you think theres something were missing shoot us an email with the information and we will credit you as the source.

We wish you all lucrative purchases and dope collections.
