This was already posted in the "Upcoming & Emerging Brands" area, but I think it might be relevant to this area too. I don't know, just something more to read? About a week and a half ago I got the chance to interview Jeff over at CITIZEN, one of Michigan's finest skate/streetwear boutiques. Located on the infamous Woodward Avenue (also known as the [I]first[/I] highway ever constructed), CITIZEN caters to both the world of urban/street apparel as well as skate gear. We talked about how he got his start, the current state of street fashion and of course...Bill Laimbeer. You can read the interview below. Enjoy. [Image]

[Quote] I actually don't live in Chicago, but I asked Vic how far it was over to Wicker Park from Bronzeville and he said it's about 15 minutes. I didn't have the chance to get over to their other location, but the next time I'm in town I will for sure. Their stock is pretty ridiculous, and I'd imagine Wicker Park is just as good.

I think some people in this area of the forums might be interested in reading this. I already posted it on the "Upcoming & Emerging Brands" section, but I know that not everyone reads that. I traveled down to [I]LEADERS 1354[/I], Chi-Town's finest boutique, on Friday and did an interview with Vic. Among other things, we discussed their history, hot dogs and why the Midwest can't be defined. Hope you guys enjoy it. FULLER [Image]

[Quote] Mmm, yeah it is. BUT, I don't think "Once a good girls gone bad, she's gone forever" is -- which is basically the main phrase in the chorus Rihanna's song. Irrelevant though, since Ne-Yo probably wrote the line for Jay-Z in the first place.

[Quote] Ahhh. I actually didn't know that. Good save.

I'm not over analyzing anything and I'm not complaining. I don't care what the hell Ne-Yo does, I'm just pointing out something that [I]I[/I] thought was interesting. Seeing as though Jay-Z and Rihanna are closely linked, as are Jay-Z and Ne-Yo, it's not out of the question that Ne-Yo got the idea for the song "Good Girl, Gone Bad" from a Jay-Z track. I wasn't saying like, that he can't do that, I was just saying it was interesting and I'm wondering if that's what happened. That, coupled with (in my opinion) similar melodies to a song written by Ne-Yo for his own album, kind of struck me as interesting. And maybe I shouldn't have said "ripped off" since that implied stealing. Yes, I'm aware of artists paying "homage" to other rappers by throwing in a phrase that someone else said before. LogIc: Yes, the phrase "Good girl, gone bad" might be a common phrase. But I don't think the entire phrase of "Once a good girls gone bad, she's gone forever" is common. Which is basically the chorus of Rihanna's song. There's no point to this, haha. It happens all the time, which I'm aware of. I just heard it and thought it was particularly interesting considering the players. Good talk.

Man, I'm finding a bunch of different artists who borrowed from this album. I never noticed it before because their albums weren't out yet. Even the new Kanye album. "Hustlers, that's if ya still living, get on down." -- man, I never thought Ye would lift from Jay-Z! HAAAAAAAAA. blushing

I'm listening to The Blueprint right now, and I'm seeing some real similarities between Ne-Yo's songwriting and this album. Listen to "Song Cry" off The Blueprint, then listen to "Make It Work" off Ne-Yo's last album. The melodies and drum patterns are similar. Jay's song is just a bit faster. Secondly, in the same song Jay-Z says "Once a good girl's gone bad, she's gone forever" -- Ne-Yo wrote the song "Good Girl, Gone Bad" on Rihanna's latest album. Just sayin. I had to express that. I doubt there are any hardcore Ne-Yo fans in there though, ha.
