Fashion Design Culture. | Johnny “Cupcakes” Earle (Lecture)

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

PLAY Lifestyle & Culture. | #ASAPRocky “Purple Swag” (Documentary)

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…

Sports Culture Interview. | “The Female Voice in Sports Media” (Panel)

The state of sports journalism today, the advantages and disadvantages women face in the media and the perceptions they must overcome will be addressed during “The Female Voice in Sports Media,” the fifth installment of the “Beyond the Box Score” lecture series hosted by Medill, Northwestern Athletics, Northwestern Women’s Center and One Book One Northwestern.

USA Today columnist Christine Brennan (BSJ80, MSJ81) will moderate the discussion with a panel that includes CNN’s Rachel Nichols (BSJ95), Fox Sports’ Pam Oliver, and ESPN’s Cari Champion and Cassidy Hubbarth (BSJ07).

This year’s event is co-sponsored by the Northwestern Women’s Center and One Book One Northwestern. More than 40 years after its birth, the impact of Title IX legislation can be seen in the vast number of women participating in sports compared to a generation ago. Likewise, there has been a rise in the number of female journalists who cover sports, with the fight for equality of access to the press box and locker room not unlike the fight for equal access to the playing field.

Each panelist has her own story, but there are countless others that need to be told. That is why, to coincide with the event, Medill students profiled a collection of women in sports media, many of whom are Northwestern alumni. The stories, hosted in an online collection on Medium, launched earlier this month and will continue to be published leading up to and following the event.
