Mixmaster Spade lives!...

LA's revolving outdoor art gallery that is the UNDEFEATED BILLBOARD PROJECT on LaBrea Ave features new work this month by none other than the local art collective/"social club" GENTS OF DESIRE, aka: Jonathan Bleser (FINN), and Alexis Ross (DOOM). Commemorating the late underground Hip-Hop legend MIXMASTER SPADE who died in a motorcycle accident in 2005, the billboard puts their trademark old school style front and center on one of Hollywood's most heavily trafficked corridors. To commemorate the piece, NIKE and UNDFTD have teamed up to throw a charity reception on Sunday, June 29th benefiting the East LA Community Youth Center. The throwdown kicks off behind the UNDFTD shop (home of a new Gents mural) at 112 1/2 LaBrea at 5pm and the price of admission is a pair of fresh, unworn kix which go directly to the charity. Nike will match the number of shoes donated at the event and UNDFTD will bestow a pair of new slides to the dude who shows up looking best in his old lady's pants. And for you shopaholics, UNDFTD will be dropping an unstoppable “Solid Gold” Gents collab T-Shirt. HAVE A LOOK:
