The Dapper Rebels of Los Angeles, 1966
In the summer of 1965, riots broke out in the Watts neighborhood of southern Los Angeles. Over a six-day period, 34 people were killed, 1,032 injured and over 3,438 arrests were made. In 1966, LIFE magazine revisited the site of the worst riots America had ever seen in its history. The photo essay depicting the region’s ‘fearsome street gangs’ however, turned out more like a fashion shoot for dapper style…
This article is such an interesting look at the history of black fashion, quintessential “Los Angeles” style, and how we perceive early gang culture. I’m fascinated with the pride of dress shown by the “dapper rebels” and the dignity presented in their portraits and photos.

Rakim - Bring It On (Circa 1995) produced by Dominic Owens
Within today’s rap world of little or any intellectual cadence, it’s rare that I find a track that makes me want to say “Wait, rewind that back.” That phrase alone could mean two things, the song was just so ill that I put it on repeat as a soundtrack to fit the moment or the artist’s lyrics genuinely floored me and or flew over my head first time around. One artist with such a talent is “The God MC,” Rakim. Today, producer Dominic Owens let loose an unreleased and original gem he recorded with Rakim Allah back in April of 95’ at High Class Studios in Brooklyn. This could start your new year on a high note for nostalgic hip hop heads.
