Smokers Club Tour Recap








Smokers Club Tour is selling out all over the states, with no exception in their stop to the 412. A packed Mr Smalls, thumbs up in the air, smoke on the stage, this was definitely something you shouldn't have missed. TBC was obviously heavy in the building, with both the new Swisher and TOP designs on display between Mac on stage and the TBC heiresses/BPC first ladies back stage. Opening for Curren$y were several performers, some of which I regretfully missed, (due to my girl not getting a pre-sale ticket and the show being SOLD OUT, but of course Franimal came through) but I know it's safe to say they killed it! I caught the end of Boaz, who brought the Steel City out one time for the burgh, and leading into Mac's pre-show, which I must admit, had some major energy - the kid just keeps stepping up! Big Krit and Smoke DZA accompanied Curren$y, who brought out some real fans - the kid next to me knew EVERY word to all of their jams! Wiz was missed at this performance, but of course Curren$y played a couple Khalifa beats to shout out the man putting the burgh on the map. As he looks to the balcony, puts a number 1 in the sky and says 'This one's for my brother!' Once backstage everyone was de-stressing, if you will, and having a good time with some good talent and some good music. Big ups to Billy (DailyBreadPA) and our in-house photog Neil for snapping some flicks throughout the night that we can now share with you!

Ready or Not Fridays at AVA!


Every month at Shadow Lounge DJ Selecta has an event called Classic Material. He brings different old school hiphop DJs from all over the US to come rock it for the 412. Recently he brought DJ House Shoes a badass DJ from the dirty D... er Detroit for those of you that don't know. He's cool as fuck and can rock a party till the sun comes up. Lucky for us he will be doing a monthly at AVA starting in 2011. But since he likes us so much he's decided to stop by once more in 2010. So join us at AVA for Ready or Not Friday tonight from 10pm-2am i'll be there dancing per usual!

This Just In!






With a passion for graphic design and all things pop cultural in his hometown of Los Angeles, Rick Klotz cut his teeth designing flyers and installations for the variety of Los Angeles club and music scenes which were happening during the mid to late eighties. In 1989 Rick began expressing himself through clothing and Freshjive was born. Considered one of the originators of streetwear, Freshjive drew its initial aesthetics from Los Angeles culture combined with influences from a lifestyle revolving around music, board sports and the arts. Since it was conceived, the quality and style of the brand has been complimented by political and social commentary and humor. And as a last Fuck Off to brand identification, the company will be abandoning it’s name on all items as of 2010.

Timebomb is glad to be carrying this brand it's classy but still has a street influence.. check it out here!

vitamin THICK Up In Here!






vitaminTHICK is a celebration of living life to its fullest through community, culture, and dope clothing. With the street cliches of violence, greed, and politics plaguing the urban fashion industry today, co-captains Elliott Curtis and Andrew Shedd listen to the echos of their youth for inspiration. “Back in the day” was a glowing and carefree time when anything and everything was possible. Without all the posturing and bad noise, childhood was a time when we had our whole lives in front of us. The vT brand is a blending of this nostalgic mindset with a culturally informed social commentary.

VitaminTHICK’s commitment to originality and high energy creativity is simply an extension of the pillars that the brand was founded upon. vitaminTHICK grew from the dorm rooms of Carnegie Mellon University as a private

commission sneaker customization service created by Jesse Chorng and Elliott Curtis in the spring of 06. Today, those hand painted and laser-etched one-of-ones exist only in blog retrospectives and in the closets of several insiders, but the attention to detail and quality of craft remain cornerstones of the brand. Since the earliest days, vitaminTHICK had ideas that went beyond sneakers and extended into a wider range of street fashion. In the Fall of 06, fellow student and visionary Andrew Shedd joined the vitaminTHICK squad, as he shared a desire to create a clothing line that brought something fresh to the street wear industry. The spring of 2008 marked the official introduction of what vitaminTHICK is today: a line of authentic, limited edition clothing and accessories. In the Fall of 09 vitaminTHICK successfullyabout_left_piclaunched in a very select number of retailers and was met with praise and enthusiasm.

vT’s product, like its approach to brand and design, embodies the definition of limited edition in its most earnest sense. Nearly all the vT pieces are individually numbered out of a finite denomination. This is real. No marketing gimmicks. No fine print. Just BAM- “I have shirt 23 out of 100. Only 99 other heads are up on this piece right here.” Although the products are exclusive, vitaminTHICK is a community of those who hold lifestyle to a higher level. This is why VitaminTHICK’s products adhere to a design regimen that shells out for style-specific prints, eco-friendly inks, extra attention to stitch work, and the little details that might go unnoticed to some but define the brand to Shedd and Curtis. These principles of value-added design tower over brands that subscribe to the cost cutting and inferior quality of mass production. vitaminTHICK’s founders have been students of the street wear industry for many years now, and with confidence they present a brand with a level of quality that can truly stand against the titans of the game.

vitamin THICK is available now at Timebombshop.com check it out!

Mac Miller and Rocksmith Video Lookbook

Our homies at Rocksmith recently reached out to Mac in efforts to collab with their newest fall line, and voila; 2010 Rocksmith Fall Video Lookbook featuring Mac Miller! Fresh gear, a day at the NYC shore, and 'Traffic In The Sky' playing in the background - what more could you ask for? Peep the video below, and come cop your new Rocksmith gear today HERE, including some shown in the video!

Smokers Tour Kick Off Show



Last night started the Smokers Club Tour for Mac Miller and Boaz in Toronto, Canada. We'll be updating on the latest news, images, and dates of the shows, starting with the images snapped last night during the show from the stage - good look Will for getting these for us! Big heads came out for their show last night to watch Mac and Boaz kill it with a packed venue and thousands of listeners there to see some of the burgh's finest.

Real Deal vs Loe Pesci Battle

Keeping our tab on Real Deal, master of ceremonies AND master of battles, is something we like to do here at Timebomb. This time's check up went as smooth as usual, with no surprise that he stays killing it - whether it be hosting battles or competing in them. His latest battle was vs Loe Pesci, a Canadian rapper. At 18 minutes time, this one's pretty good, but obviously Real killed it with some truly lyrical lines and on point delivery. Pesci blanked out for a while, a long while, which he suffered from greatly, but came back with a few good words and a lot of filler space. Real kept it 100 the whole time though so came through as the obvious winner. Nice try Pesci, really, but not this time. Pittsburgh prevails - as usual.


New Beedie Video 'Grown Shit'

Beedie and Rex Arrow Films got together to shoot his latest video for 'Grown Shit' from his latest mixtape entitled Sleeping In. While still on his solo grind, be sure to keep the look out for his work with Varsity Squad as well, with Jon Quest and producer Shade Cobain. Til then, who brings you the burgh's hottest hiphop news? TBC of course.
