The COOGI brand partnered with PURE Atlanta and One Grand Gallery for Ready 2 Die, a tribute to the legacy of the Notorious B.I.G. and the relaunch of COOGI on Thursday, Oct 22nd. Lizzie PURE owner of PURE Atlanta said the collaboration was perfect for the store because of its longtime affiliation with Hip Hop.
"I'm a Hip Hop enthusiast and PURE has always supported the Hip Hop community. Doing this event with COOGI allowed us to be a part of the brands re-launch and I loved the idea of connecting with the art community," Lizzie PURE says.
The event consisted of selected pieces of art honoring the late Notorious BIG on display at PURE. Several guests purchased artwork which was managed by One Grand Gallery. Ready 2 Die welcomed an eclectic mix of Atlanta's art, fashion and Hip Hop community. Guests included Lil Scrappy, C Bone, Love & Hip Hop's Premadonna, celebrity stylist & art enthusiast Renaldo Nehemiah, super producer Bryan Michael Cox and many more. Guests enjoyed COOGI inspired strawberries and PURE cupcakes from Black Diamond Edibles and were serenaded by a live brand playing various interpretations of trap music.

A shooting at T.I's restaurant, Scales 925, in Atlanta has left one man shot, TMZ reports. The incident reportedly started between five or six men Sunday night (Oct. 25) who were arguing. After the men were asked to leave the restaurant, the confrontation continued in the parking lot. Police say a man pulled out a gun and shot another man in the leg. The wounded man then fled the scene.
When police were responding to a 911 call about the shooting, they ended up pulling over the car that the shooting victim was in. Instead of cops later arresting the shooter, the victim ended up getting hauled off to jail. Police reportedly found 240 grams of marijuana and $6,000 in cash in the vehicle he was in.
He was arrested for possession of marijuana and reckless conduct. The victim claims he did not know the shooter. The entire incident was captured on surveillance cameras, which police are using to aid their search for the shooter.
While Two-9 is making moves to be recognized on a broader scale, the Atlanta collective's co-founder drops a new song solo dolo. The new song, titled "Snow" is something very little different and similar to fellow Two-9 tracks. Curtis' new track, produced by Free P, has that familiar formula of 808's, high hats, and snare. However, the echoed sample and chorus, makes "Snow" the track for a long night ride home.

After performing on an A3C showcase, most artists network and "politick" by handing out CD's, exchanging social media handles or handing out merch. Meet the artist who took to the streets of Edgewood Avenue during Atlanta's A3C to give everyone a show after he stepped off stage (two showcases to be exact). His hustle and innovation led to immediate cosigns from Peter Rosenberg, DJ Greg Street and Trinidad James. World, meet DAEtrius and the #WHEREISPERCYPARK movement.
How do you feel about the Atlanta's music scene?
Atlanta, is in a good place and sonically we are thriving. However, I feel like with diversity emerging in the Atlanta underground we could use The P.E.R.C.Y. PARK landscape as a contending frontrunner...music that touches the people. It's why performing on a stage isn't enough for me. Performing on the sound truck at A3C allowed me to get with the people.
What do you want your legacy to leave via music, art, etc...
I want my legacy to be authenticity, a true voice of the people. My art is for those who are searching for understanding and those that may be misunderstood or misrepresented...people who want to be understood and not interpreted. I feel like we all have so many layers. We're all like fabric...on the surface appearing one way, but when you get up close, it's we're so intricate. It represents both who we are and who we're becoming. I want to be a symbol of growth and a testament of understanding.
Explain the acronym/meaning behind P.E.R.C.Y Park.
P.E.R.C.Y. stands for a Portrayal of Emotions in ou(R) Careless Youth. Park symbolizes the fact that the world is a playground. We all live in P.E.R.C.Y. Park.
Favorite artist(s) and Why?
Jay Z , Outkast, and Tupac because they all embody the things that help shape my thinking: Charisma, Awareness and Authenticity.
Explain your music in one sentence.
My music is about choices, the place we reside between heaven and hell....both thoughtful and carefree.
