An interview with FrontRite founder and Social Media Mogul Anthony D'Urbano
I caught up with local streetwear guru, Imaan Browne, to not only get an inside scoop on his brand, Pureluckx Clothing, but to get to know the man himself. Fully clad in the clothes he designed, Imaan is the kind of guy to start singing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song to you when you’ve only really just met. He’s charismatic, speaks humbly of himself and welcomes me with open arms.
ROSES gave me exclusive access to Montreal DJ Nana Zen. I sat down and spoke with her after her set at Phi Centre about how she prepares for her sets, her experience as a woman in the Montreal music scene, and where you can find her mixing this summer.
"Thrifting is dirty."
Sitting in a crowded Tim Hortons on a Thursday afternoon; voices and footsteps filter in and out. I can’t help but reflect on the pursuit of self-actualization experienced by and unique to every individual in this crowded chain restaurant, or on the busy streets of a diverse city such as Montreal.
Ricky Sito, 23, was an altar boy. Today, he is a rapper.
Ricky Sito is a gentleman. A talented one at that. He reminds me of Drake, unafraid to admit he actually has emotions that influence his being, with a dash of A$AP Rocky’s style and class. He is, in a sense, like a young Kanye, equipped with knowledge and confidence that greatness is in his reach if he wants it enough. A reminder that Kanye did not always refer to himself as a God, but was at one time just a talented kid from Chicago who didn't fit the mold of a rapper as created by artists like Biggie or Tupac.
