Nasir Sobhani aka ‘The Streets Barber’, is a true Nomad, not just of the world, but also of the mind. Growing up in Japan, attending University in Canada, volunteering his time for Youth Work in the Vanuatu and then Australia to start up his own initiative helping the homeless, Nasir has certainly lived a fruitful life. It wasn’t all smooth sailing though, with a crippling drug addiction along the way, Nasir thanks his Baha’i faith and barbering for his new found sobriety. Working six days a week cutting hair, Nasir spends his one day off hitting the streets to give free haircuts to the homeless. He calls it, ‘Clean Cut Clean Start’.

We live in a world where success is the only measure of success.
UK government funding for sport is based on medal prospects. Basketball, played by 218,000 14-16 year olds every week in London alone, was judged to have little chance of future medals and its funding was slashed. Basketball can give hope and focus to those who might otherwise have neither – but its future hangs in the balance.
Directed by Jon E Price and featuring London poet James Massiah, Underneath the Noise celebrates Britain’s raw talent and gives a voice to young ball players.

Johnny “Cupcakes” Earle started 16 companies before finally getting it right. In his entertaining talk, Johnny outlines the various hardships and small, clever things he incorporated into his brand that ultimately led to the success of the Johnny Cupcakes t-shirt brand.
Named America’s #1 Young Entrepreneur by BusinessWeek, and recognized 4 years in a row for making it into the Inc. 500 | 5000 fastest growing independent companies in America, Johnny Earle started his business by selling t-shirts out of the trunk of an ’89 Toyota Camry when he was 19. Since that time, the Johnny Cupcakes brand has grown out of his sedan, and into the multimillion dollar apparel company it is today.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
Four years is a long time in the Internet age. Just think: Four years ago you probably didn’t know what Uber was, had never used SnapChat, and you probably had never heard of a rapper named A$AP Rocky and his Harlem based crew, the A$AP Mob. In 2011, A$AP Rocky launched the A$AP movement after releasing an instant classic video called “Purple Swag.”
The video blew us away. Just when it was starting to feel like New York couldn’t produce new rap stars, a shirtless Rocky came strutting down the block on that bike sporting Jeremy Scott adidas with the charisma of 50 Cent, the sound of Houston, and a “alternative but traditional” aesthetic masterminded by the late, great A$AP Yams. Four years later and Rocky is a full blown star who recently got his third Complex cover and has his highly anticipated sophomore album slated for later this year. That’s why this song was ripe for a Magnum Opus treatment.
None of what Rocky—and the rest of the Mob—has accomplished these past few years would have been possible if it wasn’t for “Purple Swag.” So we got with the main members of the Mob including Rocky, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Nast, and A$AP Bari to talk about how the Mob came together and how Rocky crafted the song. Of course, we all also took time out to talk about the genius of A$AP Yams, who tragically passed away earlier this year, and how he helped the song blow up. As great as the song is, it certainly wouldn’t have had the same impact without it’s corresponding video. So we also spoke with director Jason Ano as well as everybody’s favorite white girl with gold grills, Anna Trill. And finally, with all the debate that the song sparked about whether or not New York rappers should be using a Southern sound, we just had to speak with the Trill OG himself, Bun B about why he’s cool with Rocky’s H-Town influence.

In 2011, Harlem’s A$AP Rocky emerged at the forefront of a resurgent New York rap underground. Connecting the dots between a wide spectrum of ‘90s rap and the fashion-savvy hip hop vanguard, Rocky quickly ascended to global stardom. In this public lecture at London’s majestic St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, as part of the 2015 RBMA UK Tour, the rapper gave a rare insight into his state of mind. Sitting down with journalist Hattie Collins on the Red Bull Studios London couch where he wrote much of At.Long.Last.A$AP, Lord Flacko seemed delighted to hold court. This extensive interview also features a special appearance by Yasiin Bey and the first play of album cut “M’$.” Find out more about A$AP Rocky’s upcoming public lecture in Harlem for Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York here: http://nyc.redbullmusicacademy.com/co…
