Is it just me or have industry events gotten more swanky in the past few months? Last night, the homies at Capitol Records invited me to preview Naughty Boy’s Hotel Cabana at the Soho House in NYC. Afterwards, Sam Smith had the members-only club swoooooning with his live set upstairs. If you haven’t heard of these guys, get familiar NOW. Their MONSTER hit (No. Seriously. It has almost 200 million views on YouTube) “La La La” is going to hit stateside soon and Sam Smith is going to croon his way into your heart. Peep my interview with Naughty Boy for Rolling Stone for more info.
I haven’t gotten around to hitting any online shops for Cyber Monday, but after seeing this awesome commercial, Fancy.com is where it’s at. The online startup is marketing itself with help from Cam’ron and Dame Dash. Watch the spot and don’t be surprised if you find yourself asking whether’s 2013 or Dipset in 2003?
