Holding things down in the fashion industry we’ve got an awesome brand from North Carolina by the name of Pressplay Couture. Now relax as we get to know Pressplay Couture a little more and how they started out in the industry. Also get a closer look at some of their latest products!

Clothing line name: Pressplay Couture Clothing Supply
City/State: Rocky Mount / NC…But im from VA make no mistake!!!
Established date: 2014
Website: http://pressplaycoutureclothing.com

Price range for clothing: $25-40
Where to buy your clothing: http://www.pressplaycoutureclothing.com/

So tell us about your brand?
Pressplay Couture invites individuals on an exclusive experience to share with the culture. I like to look at the brand as simple and fresh. I always wanna remain timeless the finished product. remaining timeless and simple was very big to me cause no matter what the product will speak for itself, so theres no eye candy or hidden doors. Transcending the Culture and leaving a stamp is what Pressplay Couture is all about. Anything else is falling short & well that wouldn’t be too much fun. Now would it?

How did i come up with the name?

- Well i came up with the name by really wanting something that can really stick in your mind when you hear it. Say it with me Pressplay…. now Pressplay Couture….see what i did just did right there! Im not sure if i wanted the name to be a verb but i guess it worked out that way. Just think of it like this most of the time when you Pressplay it leads to something you been waiting for! The rest i suppose was pure marketing something that could have a ring to it was paramount.

What were you doing before launching your brand?

- I was putting myself through a private higher learning institution. Students call it college.

When did you begin thinking about launching your own clothing brand?

- To be honest it took maybe 30 mins at a party and from the room spinning and me spilling cheap liquor on my cool grey 11s. ahhh good times!

What best describes your line & who is it targeted to?

- I like to think of Pressplay Couture as timeless art so i am targeting fans and believers of fly shit. That can never be understated. i wanna take all the supporters on the journey of the brand. Want everyone to feel responsibility to share their experiences they have witnessed with Pressplay Couture! I think i do a good job on letting the supporters see the brands growth. I wouldn’t mind sponsoring a skater thats something i would love to do in the near future! D8on’t wanna give away too much in that department, but In a nutshell its accurate for the wood grain grippin, rolex flexin, VIP sofa pushaz!

What influenced you to start this line?

- I was really starting to get annoyed by the stuff i seen in malls and apparel stores. people were lacking and it was something i always knew at the right time i was going to merge in so when the time was right it started to work on Double P Couture. I love independant lines and stores like Commonwealth in Norfolk VA.You can just tell when a creator has placed their full attention into a release or piece trust me it shows. Now a days you can see that is lacking. I wanted to be apart of something that would transcend the culture and inspire. Thats when Everything happened at the right time and the stars aligned for myself.

How is your brand different from others out there?

- The Brand is calm cool and collective but very precise and surgical. When i say those things am pointing out that there is NO fine printing you have to watch out for with Pressplay Couture. Im a fan of keeping thing timeless so the material i bring to the front lines will be able to be worn to many accusations and stand the test of time. I have so much under my sleeve so just watch out i don’t wanna give away too much but its crazy!!

Are there any challenges you run into while running a business?

- Well its just me backing my line. I like it that way. Marketing is key but as of right now word of mouth is getting things done. I really have to grow on social networks and just capitalize on every opportunity that comes my way. Im looking forward to those challenges, i embrace them. Overall having a business like this, i love it and wouldn’t change it. i have a few friends i ask their input on things like designs but its all me. I love it that way though, because you get to learn at your own past. If you fuck up its all on you and nobody else is to blame. Its necessary because when you think about it all the greats will be the 1st to tell you there’s nobody there with you at the top. Its a lonely destination.

What ways did you find promoting your brand worked?

- Well i started at my school 1st. I gave a few product placement pieces away. But Marketing is what its about. I feel like when you have a fresh line then people will gravitate to it regardless but its all about who you know now a days or what things appear to be. I’ve learned to finesse the smoking mirrors a little bit. I also wanna get to some backstage concerts to to really shake things up.

Are there any future plans for your line?

- Of course i think about the future all the time. I will be having a Spring 15 release and its very limited. i love to keep thing exclusive! i will be working with some great talented graphic designers to bring a Epic Summer 15 release. I also wanna focus on some accessories so Pressplay Couture will have unlimited potential when it comes to the future. Im ready for actions believe it!

How did you hear about FKN Famous & what do you think of us?

- The internet…..The internet in infinite!

Any last shout outs?

- Yeah fosho i wanna Scout of Tawny Richardson for the start up money. Scout out Ronnie Fieg of KITH for keeping things real player and lacing everything he does with his brand KITH & S/O Fkm- Famous for the interview. & last but not least scout out my two boys Zach Shaikh (@ZizziShaikh) and Akeem Bangurah! Think Forward and Pressplay!

Big Sean – Blessings http://fkn-famous.com/2015/03/big-sean-blessings/ http://fkn-famous.com/2015/03/big-sean-blessings/#comments Wed, 04 Mar 2015 03:16:26 +0000 http://fkn-famous.com/?p=65977 Happy Tuesday hope your week is off to a great start! Today we’ve got a new music video from the very talented Big Sean. Here is the video premiere to his latest smash hit song Blessings. Turn your speakers up and enjoy this awesome new music video!

[Intro: Drake & Big Sean]
Look, I feel blessed
Way up, I feel blessed, way up, I feel blessed
(I, straight up, look)

[Verse 1: Big Sean]
I live the life I deserve, blessed
Fuck a vacay I feel better at work
I mean whatever it’s worth, I give whatever I’m worth
For my niggas who gon’ go to Hell and back for me
I’mma give ‘em Heaven on Earth
Or a hell of a check, yeah, whichever come first
Blessings on blessings on blessings
Look at my life, man, that’s lessons on lessons on lessons
I treat the beat like it’s a reverend
I tell the truth like father, forgive me, these are all my confessions
Man, this wasn’t luck, it was destined
I done lost homies who been with me since Ed, Edd and Eddy
Who flip like confetti
And then when you back, they back to call you “dog”
That shit get get petty, bitch, don’t give no dap to me, nigga
Funny thing about talking behind my back
Is that it just keep coming back to me, nigga
Was off for a sec, now it’s back to me, nigga, you mad at me
This ain’t what I want, man, this what it had to be
This is that late night working after three, man
This why my old girl was mad at me
This why I’m your majesty, man
The clique is the tightest, the pussy the tightest
The drinks are the coldest, the future the brightest
The feat not divided, the love is divided
And I just gotta thank God that we got it
Blessed
I don’t know what I would do without it
Crew look like we robbed a bank, but all we make is deposits
Your prophet will profit, oh God

[Hook: Drake & Big Sean]
I’m here for a good time, not a long time, you know I
I haven’t had a G.O.O.D. time in a long time, you know I
I’m way up, I feel blessed
Way up, I feel blessed (Straight up)
I’m way up, I feel blessed (Straight up, straight up)
Way up, I feel blessed

[Verse 2: Drake]
Look, I ain’t gon’ say that we back or nothing
Cause that implies that we’re back from something
If we’re back from something there’s some checks you owe us
I expect that payment, nothing less or over
I don’t need them favors that you ask me for
I could give two fucks ’bout where the Grammys go
I just gave out Grammys on my Instagram
Them OVO boys, the business man
It is what it is, trust me, you get what you give, yeah
You gotta come to my side and see how we live, yeah
I cannot see Heaven being much better than this, yeah
Blessings on blessings from me and my niggas from the 6
Look at what we did, yeah
Be quiet, I’m doing a toast
For niggas that don’t really do shit, I swear, y’all be doing the most
Stop worrying ’bout whoever’s next
I am just worried ’bout my mama worrying less
I think I’m famous enough, I don’t need any more press
I am convinced I’m the only one left
That’s still doing this shit, man

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Big Sean]
My grandma just died, I’m the man of the house
So every morning I’m up cause I can’t let them down, down
Always down for the cause, never down for the count
I guess when your stars align
You do like the solar system and plan it out
So I’m going over time, on the overtime
Yeah, I’m that invested, but you can’t attest it
Million dollar goals, managed to manifest it
The family never going anorexic
I pay mom mortgage and electric
Never going under even with anesthetics
At the top of the rap game and progressin’
Check after check, checking off my check list
Try and blow my cake, just know that’s a death wish
No mistakes in life ever, it’s only lessons
Shit feel like Shaq and Penny got back together
You tore the game apart, who put it back together? I

[Hook]

[Verse 4: Kanye West]
Since the truth keep niggas traumatized
They tryna compromise my condom size
So I Snapchat that whole shit
Tryna see titties, tryna show dick
And I swear to God I hope they post it
I’m blessed
Even though I get slammed with lawsuits like car doors
See three P.O.’s like Star Wars
They want me by the road holding up cardboard
So I go extra hard on the hard floor
Right now, I’m calling you from my home gym
Right after that, nigga, I’m gon’ swim
Just did a couple laps in my home pool
And my daughter right there getting home-schooled
I’m blessed
And I was thinking ’bout starting up my own school
A Montessori
And the hallway looking like a monastery, oh yes
I’m way up, I feel blessed

From this foundation, we aim to reconnect with our roots, creating classic Californian workwear from a streetwear perspective using color, bold but refined graphics, and tech-meets-traditional fabrications. In addition to that, The Hundreds is presenting its second season of nano-technology – a no handfeel protectant that repels dirt, water, and oil without any extra weight or damage to the color and texture of the garment.
