In what has become a summertime tradition, the big homie Roofeeo is back with the 4th installment of his mixtape series “Call It What You Want.” Part IV takes the sound evolution another step forward with a mix of bangers and mash that could only come from the mind of Rüf! Like icing on the cake, comedian Hannibal Buress is back providing “Hardcore Witticisms & Legendary Rap Bars” completing a mix that deserves the title “The Soundtrack to the Summer.” Enjoy!
We are excited to share a project of epic proportions by our friend and TGL! familia member Jimmy Chin with the official trailer for his new film Meru. While we all talk about life and death, Jimmy and fellow master climbers Conrad Anker and Renan Ozturk live on the absolute edge between the two on a regular basis and came as close to the other side as humanly possible during their 2011 ascent of the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru in India. A feat that had never been accomplished in recorded history, and one that the three had come tantalizingly close to in 2008 before they were forced to abandon just 100 meters short of the summit due to weather, the story and the amazing documentary that captures it can only be described as mind blowing. What’s a guy like Jimmy doing when he’s not risking life and limb for the sake of exploration and adventure? You know he’s in NYC playing bones with TheGoodLife! Check out the story about Jimmy and his wife Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi aka Snow Leopard in this week’s New Yorker! Meru, which won the The 2015 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, hits theaters on August 14.
