LARGEUP SHEDS LIGHT ON GLOBAL CARIBBEAN CULTURE

In patois, the term "large up" means to elevate, or exalt. So, it is fitting that the site of the same name shares the same intention. The site's impact has allowed the LargeUp team to expand to promotion, and organizing events such as Chronixx and more in Central Park for their first-annual SummerStage concert.

KINGSTONTOLA’S BEST OF NYFW

New York Fashion Week is that week-long party you just can’t escape. It’s all over everybody’s timeline as a friendly reminder: you’re not there and missing all the fun. Having never been to NYFW, I feel that tinge of jealousy every time. KingstontoLA is planning for next year, but until then we’ll continue to admire the fashion, the celebrity parties and new models from afar. We’ve got the round up on our top moments from the most recent NYFW.

ACTION BRONSON VS. GHOSTFACE KILLAH

If you haven’t already heard, Action Bronson’s rap style sounds eerily similar to rap legend’s Ghostface Killah. So much so Killah has mistaken Bronson’s raps for his own. True story. Most recently, Bronson was interviewed on ESPN’s “SportsNation,” when he was asked about this similarity in tone-rap style. Bronson responded with “He’s not rapping like this no more.” Uh oh. Shots fired.

WHO IS CHLOE BARTOLI?

It seems as if America has a new most hated person every week. Some weeks it’s Mike Tyson, another week it’s the police, many weeks it’s Barack Obama, the list goes on. This week America’s most hated goes to Chloe Bartoli. Unfortunately for the French born stylist, pics surfaced of her hanging out with Scott Disick in Monte Carlo this past weekend. The two can be seen stroking each other’s backs, feeding each other pasta and sunbathing together on a lounge chair too close for comfort.

BRUCE JENNER INTERVIEW

We’ve known Bruce Jenner as the patriarch of the Kardashian brand for years. A former Olympic star that legends were made of. Recently, Bruce Jenner made that legend status larger. The reality TV star got real real in an exclusive interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer. In the much anticipated interview, Bruce revealed that he’s had the soul of a woman ever since he could remember, and will be making a transition to a woman publicly. No longer keeping this a secret from the public eye.
