Loc’d Talk w/ Hassan
Location: New York/ New Jersey
What made you decide to loc your hair?
I dont really have a concrete answer for this question. I just always wanted locs. With my being Haitian, my grandparents weren’t having it. They were ol school. Boys had to have haircuts and clean shaven and women were to have hair, etc, So while living with them it was a no. I finally was able to loc my hair when i became 18. My mother was supportive and said “Sure, baby. Whatever you want”. (S/O to my awesome moms. Lol)

Music Monday: Rewind!
Back in December of 2012 we had the opportunity to talk to Verse Ital a up and coming Reggae artist from Trinidad. Since interviewing him, I’ve became quite a fan of the artist so for this week’s Music Monday feature i decide to repost the interview! To check his music visits the links below the interview!
Name: Stefan AKA Verse Ital
Location: Sweet Trinidad and Tobago
How long have you been making music and how did you get your start?
"I had various starts in music, the first was the MJ era, where I was 8-10 years of age and was very impressed by Michael Jackson’s career. Here the dream was born and I started writing my first songs. Then came the Buju/Reggae era, in the 90’s where I wanted to try more dancehall. I probably only wrote one song during this period but up to this time I had never performed. Then came the hip hop/rasta period, which occurred in North Philadelphia at Temple University and started in the year 2000. I was studying hard, playing basketball, growing my locs for fun, and made some friends who have influenced the rest of my life. In our group we had many freestyle champs, and a few bonafide Rastafarians, and together we started making songs and performing on campus. I left Temple University in 2005, and by 2006 I was home performing at various open mic sessions. I had a song called NyQuil that caused quite a stir when performed, so I decided to start releasing material with a producer who happened to be my neighbor…"

Locd Talk w/ Daryl
What made you loc you hair?
I felt like it was a unique way of showcasing my expression and individuality. I’m different and felt my hair should reflect that.
How long have you had your locs?
Where do you go for loc maintenance?
My mom’s room. She started them and she maintains them as well.
What’s your favorite product?
Jamaican Mango and Lime. I also use Locafella.
Any advice for brothers thinking about locing their hair?
Just do it. Stay committed. I feel you are in it 100% or not at all.
Random Question: What was the last movie you saw and what did you think about it?
Top Shottas. It was an eye opener. Different and in a way I felt like I could relate.
