Charlotte Vs. The World!

As JCon; the mastermind behind Illusions continues to work on groundbreaking new pieces, the meaning of his brand stays the same: to elevate the mindset of those who seek it through easily accessible garments with far out messages. With psychedelic lessons and themes throughout the entirety of this new collection, Vision Of The Future encapsulates the power of the mushroom.

Based upon the reign of Constantine, the take over of the Roman Empire, and how psilocybin enacted the domino effect, JCon uses rustic colors and eye catching imagery on every garment. Whether he’s painting bright mushroom caps on woodland camouflage hats or putting the stars on your chest with his glittery new logo hoodie JCon keeps the momentum going with “Vision Of The Future”.

Chicago Vs. The World!

We all know of the Chicago-phenom, Lucki, but we aren’t too sure if you know of how much pressure he’s applied in recent years. We’ve decided to construct a recap of everything he’s done to make that statement known to you—the reader. This man has really felt as if his time was coming sooner than later, and he was completely right.

Teasing a bunch of new music before delivering the storm of projects that set ears ablaze, Lucki spoke his dominance into existence & executed with ease. Starting in 2016 with the initiation of his infamous Freewave trilogy, the Chicago stunner really had his foot on gas and left all competition in the dust.

Lucki started off the Freewave trilogy by delivering a completely different sound in 2015. The production and the slurred lyrics over a hallucinogenic instrumental; it’s like you were getting high with him as he records. Although he had a cult following and adoring fans not many people understood him as an artist. His delivery was nonchalant and the subject matters in his songs were bleak. Nonetheless he changed the dark/alternative trap sound into something we feel in our souls. Hits like “Back Home” and “Newer Me” were a staple that uplifted this drug influenced wave of rap.

Lucki proceeded to cultivate the exponential growth of his audience while gaining more confidence to give the people what they truly wanted. Switching up the subject matter onto what we would call his metaphorical alter-ego of the moment was the terrorizing but yet anesthetically soothing project titled “SON OFSAM”. This project that represented a void caused an uproar and demonstrated what Lucki was truly capable of. Making every release better than his last, this project stood tall, but not to all; majority of folks overlooked this addictive dose of eerie tunes topped with haunting production. Highlighted tracks like “SYRUP TALK”, “HIS ONLY, & “DOUBLE CHECK” are what made this addition to the catalogue a powerful one.

At this point it was clear to Lucki that he had to hit the kill switch, and he did just that with his next move. Re-visiting the FREEWAVE series for the second addition, this is where Lucki believed he was a demon mentally, physically & spiritually. The dash boy had his fans at the palm of his hands. Anything he touched was without a doubt to go in his favor; no matter the approach. This phenomenal 10 track project was taken in to be an incredible listen to his audience and even new listeners. With too many records to list and flawless play-throughs; FREEWAVE II was the start to success on a massive scale for the underground king.

Live at a well earned throne, Lucki just couldn’t give up the weighted status he’s acquired, so he brought us front-row to a dungy-grim vivid perspective of his life in the 18-track release of “WATCH MY BACK/DAYSB4STORM” in 2018. This reflection of the dash boy is a showdown between the past & present version of himself. Personified in a diverse set of grasping production from GRIM DOZA, CORTDOT, GNEALZ, FORZA, PLU20 NASH, CLAMS CASINO, F1LTHY, UGLYFRIEND + more. This was a checkmate move because the amplified sound heard as soon you entered this chapter made it feel like you were embarking on an experience to his present takeover.

With the anticipation for more at an all-time high, all eyes were on Lucki by this point & he knew it. So in return he delivered the second installation to his “DAYSB4” series. Equipped with high-quality production from the proclaimed producer of MARCUSBASQUIAT; this became a stapled release. With storming records like “ROOT OF ALL” “SWITCHLANES” & “FACTS ONLY”—Lucki had us all ready for what would be his true debut project. This is when we would thought we would receive the tape BETTER DAYS but we were in for a even more greater surprise.

The greater surprise would later turn out to be FREEWAVE 3. Officially breaking the news to his loyal listeners of the major change of direction to his foreseen dominance—this would be the turning point for the Chicago phenom, leading towards superstardom & immense success. Weighing in at a victorious 15-records produced by a various amount of top tier producers such as Earl Sweatshirt, ChaseTheMoney, BrentRambo + more. This came right in time for the lovers holidays of Valentines Day. But not quite consisting of cliche love songs & romantic melodies, Lucki brought us into a dark refreshing vortex of reflective frequencies to match his character. If we had to choose mixtape of the year, then this definitely would be our choice. Already announcing another project to be titled "Flawless Like Me”—Lucki has only just begun to showcase his entire potential, despite the flood of immaculate projects there is truly no telling what the underground royalty of Lucki has in store for all of us. What we do know is that he has done enough for us to say he is definitely a living legend & will be go down as one of the best new-age rappers of our generation!

KODONE IS DROPPING T-SHIRTS YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS OUT ON:

Oklahoma Vs. The World!

The underground’s favorite digital illustrator, KODONE, is dropping two t-shirts that will probably never be restocked. At 5pm central time, KODONE’s renowned “time and limbo” + his “self reflecting” pieces will go up on his website. According to the mastermind’s Twitter, only 100 shirts will be available, so I assume he will be releasing 50 of each design. If you know anything about KODONE, then you know that these pieces will be highly sought after and that they should not be slept on. Each shirt comes with three stickers and a button set. Turn on your alarm clocks and get out your credit card because you do not want to miss out.

Kyle Hughes and the Dark Rose Podcast deserve your attention

Screen Shot 2019-05-10 at 23.33.59.png

Sydney Vs. The World!

@Writerbard has a certain perspective of this community that many people will never be able relate to. As founder and sole-operator of the meritorious Dark Rose Podcast, his scope is something close to Nardwuar’s. Although nowhere close to being as goofy or Canadian, this real-ass-dude got a behind the scenes look at our favorite Australian artists and their humble beginnings on this cloud we call the underground.

Truth be told, the first time I ever heard about his page was when he dropped a podcast with Us Vs. The World. This was before I was even close to being affiliated with this outstanding creative family. After a thorough listen I realized that he had seriously put me on game. Keep reading for an in-depth Q&A where I learn from him and ask about his exceptional craft.

Q1: For those who are unfamiliar, what is your name?

 

My name is Kyle Hughes.

 Q2: Where are you from?

 

First of all, I’m from Australia, and live in the state of NSW.

 

Originally, I was born in a small town near the bottom of a place called the Blue Mountains. I grew up in the country, surrounded by cattle, and farmland.

 

Now I live near Sydney, about 20 minutes from the centre of Sydney.

 Q3: Who/what got you interested in the underground?

 

It was my friends that got me acquainted with the underground – JVLES, and ‘dontsleep’, both musicians themselves who are quite well known in the community. They helped me make connections, and at that time I was running my blog, ‘KLH Writing’, solely, so I was interviewing talent that I thought were intriguing, and talented.

 

However, before that, I was listening to underground talent without really knowing what the underground was at that time. The underground scene is very different in Australia, and is its own separate scene, so I didn’t know what the US underground was- but I was listening to talent like Bones, Xavier Wulf, Denzel Curry, Father etc. This was like 4-5 years ago.

 

I mostly found these talents through JVLES, and ‘dontsleep’, as well as a few older friends too outside of the current scene.

Screen Shot 2019-05-10 at 23.31.56.png

 Q4: Were you familiar with all of the creators you have interviewed before you started the Dark Rose Podcast?

 Mostly yes – I found the creators through KLH Writing, and through just networking. However, I’ve found many new talents whilst running the podcast.

 Q5: Which of your podcasts would you say were the most interesting or eye-opening?

 

This is a very difficult question, and I am unsure if I can give a definitive answer. All the episodes offer differing qualities that I am glad I had those talents on for. I learn so much from the people I bring on.

 

However, the podcast episode with Fifty Grand was really intriguing – considering Fifty’s impact on the underground - and it was a moment in which I sat back and really reflected on my life. I was interviewing someone who had impacted my life so long ago -alongside the SESH members – and to think I had Fifty on, and was speaking to him, was mesmerising.

 

Another episode that has had this impact is the Slug Christ episode – which isn’t out yet as of this interview being conducted. If you know Slugs’ impact on the underground, you know why it was so surreal.

 Q6: What was your goal when you first started these podcasts?

 

I don’t know if I’ve ever had a specific goal, other than to continue bringing on people who I want their story to be heard. However, being able to get a studio for interviewing talent in person would be incredible.

Q7: What are your current goals for the platform? (if they have changed)

 

To bring on a few sponsors so that I can put the income back into the podcast, and develop it further. Getting that in person studio would make everything easier.

 Q8: What are the names of some people you would like to interview in the future?

 

This is a difficult question. I’d like to bring on some members of GBC, and more Misery Club members. I’d also like to bring on some more members of Neilaworld, and BMG. However, I’d like to find a few creatives that haven’t received much attention by platforms – and I am currently looking for these individuals.

 Q9: Podcasts are a tough medium to get off the ground. Do you feel like your work often goes unnoticed or is under appreciated? 

 

A little bit, but I understand that there is so much content on the internet that you need to find ways to influence the algorithms to work in your favour.

 

It doesn’t discourage me. I don’t create podcast episodes to get ‘big’, but rather because I enjoy it, and the conversations I have with creatives are insightful, and educating.

 

Plus, it motivates me highly – to do better, and continue to grow.

 Q10: How do you prepare for these podcasts?

 

A lot of research. I look at previous interviews, articles etc. I write down speaking points for discussion, ensure that the talent and I have agreed on a time for the interview, and we have chosen the correct speaking platform. I usually use Skype as it works better, I find.

 

I really enjoy researching. I think it’s one of my favourite parts.

 Q11: In your opinion, has an interview ever gone too far off track? If so, how did you handle it?

 

They always go a little off track, but I love it. It makes the interview feel more natural, and plus it enables the talent to feel more comfortable. I never make the interview feel like an interview because I don’t want the talent to feel uncomfortable.

 

However, if an interview goes off track for too long, I’ll usually ask questions, or bring up points of discussion that leads the conversation back on track.

 Q12: What other creative things do you do?

 

I write – a lot. I’m starting to step into the freelance journalism realm more, so writing feature articles and the like – I consider to be creative.

 

But I also write short stories, and am writing a novel. I don’t want to speak too much on the novel yet as I don’t like speaking on things that are subject to major change.

 Q13: Without giving away too much, what can we expect from the Dark Rose Podcast in the future?

 

A lot more episodes. I may have some interviews on the way with your favourite artists, and these episodes will be very big.

 

However, finding smaller talents is also one of my favourite things to do – there are so many talented people, it’s incredible.

 Q14: Any special shoutouts you’d like to make?

 

All of the Australian creatives, there are too many to name. I’ll name collectives that I am close to who I’d like to shout out; 1st Fleet, BMG, Neilaworld, Club Evil.

The blog platforms also – they give a voice to many creatives, and I believe their impact should never go unnoticed, or unappreciated. My personal favourites include Underground Underdogs, Underground Vampire Club, Fresh Fruit, and Us Versus The World.

Outside of the underground, I really enjoy The Fader, Pigeons and Planes, and a few others.

Also, shout out all of the female creatives. I find that there is limited exposure for these talented individuals, but that is changing – that goes back to my previous point – platforms have the opportunity to give exposure to people that deserve the exposure. That’s why we need to continue to give our support to good platforms, who practice honest, ethical journalism.

There are many creatives I’d like to shoutout but the list would be too long. If you’ve ever impacted my life, you know that your place is on the list.

KODONE HAS REACHED GOD LEVEL

D2cSQcQX4AAZQOU.jpg

Oklahoma Vs. The World!

PAPI KODONE first brought his miraculous art to the mass population of Soundcloud with his historical cover arts for numerous rap stars we’ve grown to label as pioneers in today’s underground community. Ever since 2015 the name KODONE is no stranger to any of our mentals. The impeccable talent the Broken Arrow artist carries is apparent to all; he’s just too amazing for his own good. His consistency proves that his work will be remembered as the true masterpieces they are—kodone has never shown us that he doesn’t have what it takes to live up to the high profile name that he has acquired throughout the years. After being around for roughly 4 years there is really no telling how long his on-going legacy will last. If you’ve been on the internet as of late you’d know the craftsmanship & the work ethic has kicked into high gear. Ranging from iconic Twitter moments from veteran stars such as Chief Keef, Young Thug, Fredo Santana, Lil Uzi Vert + more, kodone hits the bullseye on each piece making the entire world fiend for more each time he decides to share his stellar recreations with the world. Take a look below at these pieces & take a minute to absorb the superior energy these emit:

If you’ve thought that was all the brilliant mind of kodone had in store then you’ve played yourself. When we said he has kicked everything into high gear those were stamped facts. The guy has lost his fucking mind exploding with endless inspirational creations. There is seriously no telling when this astonishing streak will come to a pause. The most amazing part about it all is the simplicity each creation displays. Keep in mind that about 6-8 new artworks have been dropping daily, so with that being said it’s safe say to say kodone is definitely playing no games in making sure his dominance is asserted on an even bigger scale. Here are the classic album/mixtape cover reworks:

Adding more weight to his already heavy-weight status, kodone has left us in complete awe. These pieces are blessings in disguise; his impactful memorabilia will live on for multiple lifetimes. Setting his iron sights on the best rapper alive & the king of the underground proves that there is nothing kodone can’t add his golden touch to & with these powerful pieces dropping at a mind-blowing rate it’s only more of reason to say KODONE HAS IN FACT REACHED GOD LEVEL.

WIKID 19' SPRING/SUMMER COLLECTION + DUECE HALEY Q&A

Screen Shot 2019-05-06 at 02.19.22.png

Kansas City Vs. The World!

Duece Haley makes shit happen. This creator has been putting out consistent heat and just keeps on getting better with each release. The first installment of his WIKID 19’ Spring/Summer collection dropped yesterday and it included nothing but ridiculously fire pieces. His ability to visualize full-outfits and turn them into reality is outstanding by itself and deserves more credit.

Screen Shot 2019-05-06 at 02.28.44.png
Screen Shot 2019-05-06 at 02.28.14.png

Q1: How long have you been designing clothes?

The actual designing part, for 4 years now but it all started with printing t-shirts so I’ll say about 5 to 6 years.

Q2: What inspired the name “WIKID”?

Hahaaa that’s crazy, kind of a long story. But I use to live in Dallas, TX & I had got into a lot of shit with the laws down there from tickets & from back in forth from jail. & It just came to the point where I got tired of going through shit & knew the life I was living wasn’t for me & I really had to find myself. I always had the word “wicked” stuck in my head for a name for my brand, but I also wanted something meaningful & something that was going to mean something to me. So I change it to “WIKID.” “W-I” stands for wise & the “K-I-D” stands for kids it’s course, so more important WIKID jus means you changing you negatives to a positive.

Q3: What’s your greatest achievement in the design world?

Screen Shot 2019-05-06 at 02.08.02.png

My first distress hoodie “THE WISE WILL SURVIVE” people was going crazy for them.



Q4: Would you label yourself strictly as a designer?

HELL NAH lol. But no I do way much more than just design, I really hate being labeled as a designer cus that word is use so loosely nowadays. But if you ask me I’m an all around creator/Artist, God gave me the ability do anything artistically as long as I use the tools he gave me.

Q5: Where do you gain your inspiration from?

From real life situations... pain & happiness. It could be something that happened to me or someone else. Almost every piece that I drop has a deeper meaning than you would expect. Oh yeah Tyler the creator give me inspiration too that’s my guy!

Q6: Are there any particular brands you’d like to collaborate with?

Ok, short term goals I just want to work with the best creators in my city & they know who they are. But other than that I would love to collaborate with the brands that I grew up with . & not to sound cliche but like Supreme, Stussy, Bape, The hundreds etc
I just want to grow at the end of the day.

Q7: As a brand where do you see yourself in five years?

In 5 years I see myself opening up my own store in my city & somewhere else. & also see myself getting into directing a lot more & creating my own commercials/films because that is also something I always wanted  to do. 

Q8: Has there ever been a time when your creative world interfered with another aspect of your life?

Not yet I don’t think. It’s usually the other way around, aspects of my life interfere with my creative world, but I’m keeping it pushing with my head held high.

Q9: How do you pull yourself out of a creative slump?

I pray on it, smoke, & sometimes just eat. 

Q10: Out of all the collections you’ve released, which one is your favorite?

Screen Shot 2019-05-06 at 02.48.23.png

My fall collection was my favorite so far especially because I felt everything came at me once it really only took me a couple weeks to come up with the collection.

Q11: How do you organize all of your ideas?

I usually draw everything out first from logos, or sketching out how I want a piece to look like.

Q12: Have you always wanted to be a designer?

No I wanted to a basketball player most of my life. But I was fuckin up so much in school I knew that dream wasn’t going to happened. I honestly think God wanted me to put my artistic abilities to work because this is what I was made for.

Q13: Without giving too much away, what can we expect from WIKID this year?

More colors, more life, more life lessons.

Why The Underground Needs To Respect Cole K

FullSizeRender.jpg

Charlotte Vs. The World!

Coming up from the Queen City, Cole K has been lighting up the underground with graphic art unlike any artist. Incorporating themes he’s sees throughout his own life, Cole’s art has it’s own flair of emotion throughout every piece. Whether it be the composite AK47 he made with over 20 different photos or the his pieces with the warped faces and planets, this guy’s in a world of his own.

RonSoCold & Kaezoe (Rest In Power)

RonSoCold & Kaezoe (Rest In Power)

As he grew up in North Carolina Cole started his creative journey as a photographer breaking talent by the likes of Kaezoe, Swagg Juice, Jezus and RonSoCold. Mind you this was in 2016 when Charlotte was far from a music hub. Cole was undoubtedly ahead of his time; making relationships with soon to be stars. Whether you know it or not, these artists were the backbone that Charlotte’s underground was built upon and Cole was at the start of it all.

Not only a scout for next level talent, graphic genius, and a great shot, Cole is one of the main reasons for UsVersusWorld. Co-creator and visionary behind the platform you’re reading this article on today, the genesis of UVW was in the hands of Cole and Jay Danza. Where would we be without his vision?

It’s crazy to think about, but I wouldn’t be writing this article if it wasn’t for Cole’s guidance.

Now residing in the sunny city of San Jose, Cole continues to push the boundaries of his craft. Throwing out a wide range of colors, effects, and subject matter, you can never really know what Cole is cooking up until you see it for yourself.

Working with a plethora of artists by the likes of Slime Sito, David Shawty, HoodRichFlossy, Lil Xelly, Fonso Rex, and so many more, Cole has supplied some of your favorite artists with the most unique cover art around and has already put himself in the position to have a fantastic 2019. If you’re interested to see more of his breathtaking artistic ability, go to colemanklapheke.com or follow him here to be the first to see his next pieces.

Today I had the chance to speak with a familiar face in North Carolina’s buzzing fashion scene. Jack Broadnax is someone you need to keep an eye on. Partnering with Wilhelmina Models in New York, Jack has been making his way. He’s even been featured in shoots for Social Status and Paper Magazine. 

Jack for Sensen Lii & Paper Magazine

Jack for Sensen Lii & Paper Magazine

Although his modeling career is blossoming, he still has another passion. The founder of Her Children, Jack has now branched out onto another leg of his journey. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Good People New York is his latest endeavor and he’s releasing his first garment today! The thick cotton crewneck is perfect for the upcoming winter season and features a quote that many should live by.

When I asked why he decided to stop Her Children’s production Jack said he made the switch because he “was very happy with all support the from friends, influencers, and his girlfriend Alice Vermillion along with the progression, but It was too focused on a certain genre of clothing.” Trying to expand his horizons he “want this new brand to be for anyone and everyone.”
