Q & A: Street Photographer Rashid Samuel

RasheedSamuel (1)

As big fans of street photography, we were so excited to discover the work of 18-year-old Rashid Samuel, who has been documenting the “mash-up” looks lately sported by New York City’s stylish teen population on his Tumblr, Versus & Co, for the past nine months. Check out our Q&A interview with him below, where he talks about photography and NYC street fashion, and see additional shots of his work after the flip.

HS: When and why did you start taking street photos?

RS: I started off doing videography as a hobby. I video taped events like Sweet 16s, parties and fashion shows.  I started taking pictures, catching people while they’re walking and stopping people last summer. Being out in Manhattan everyone has a different style and I just wanted to catch it. Now I do street photography for enjoyment. I notice there are other people doing it but no one is focusing as much on the 17-21 year-old age group.

Video: Yasiin Bey Aka Mos Def ‘Niggas In Poorest’

21 February 2012, 21.44 | Posted in Music, celebrity | No comments »


Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def dismantles Jay’s Z and Kanye’s West’s “Niggas In Paris,” with his own version, “Niggas In Poorest,” which calls into question the thin air environment the duo not only enhabit but celebrate.

It’s the first release of a project called “Top 40 Underdog,” for which Bey will reinterpret (and probably adding heaps doses of consciousness) to hiphop hits of his choosing. Best line from “Niggas In Poorest”? “What the f*** is Margiela??” + his exhortation, “Don’t get caught up in no throne,” (complete w Beyonce sample) played against compelling imagery of powerful but failed leaders.
