For this week’s episode of TCU TV, Catfish, Sarah and I had Xavier Wulf on the show. X is a rapper from Memphis currently residing in LA who has been blowing up at an unbelievable rate. We sat him down and got him to spit the facts on such topics as:

-His early influences as a rapper
-His early nu metal influences
-Do you eat the booty?
-How he deals with his fans
-”I don’t give a fuck about being lyrical” and why
-The #1 rapper he would like to do a song with
-What would happen if he saw Space Ghost Purp, A$AP Ferg and Benji Band$ in a dark alley
-What happened that night that the Raider Klan got in a fight with the A$AP Mob
-How he got into anime
-How come his songs don’t have hooks
-How he felt having his songs featured in Stevie Churchill’s OSS video
-How many blunts do you smoke a day?
-Skinny girls vs thick girls
-What’s going to happen when he meets Lil B

Phil Bartlett, Jordan Hickey and Ryan Antle (or as they are sometimes known, The Antlife Crew) took a trip from St. John’s to Corner Brook, Newfoundland and made this video. Sit back, relax, let the ants crawl all over your body and enjoy the bangers. Try not to laugh too hard at Phil’s crashes.
Fans of The Sword and Subrosa have gotta be stoked on this! The band and the brand combine forces to bring you a dope new limited edition complete bike thats not as heavy as the music, but will ride just as good as it looks. I got a chance to see it this weekend at Texas Toast and this thing is sooo sick. If you’re a shop that wants to carry this bike, hit up Sparky’s ASAP!
“Following in the footsteps of their branded beers and hot sauce, The Sword is now expanding their brand to the world of extreme sports by partnering with Subrosa for the creation of the “The Stormwitch” bike. Overseen by Sword drummer and longtime BMX rider, Jimmy Vela, “The Stormwitch” features artwork from famed comic book artist J.H Williams who designed the most recent Sword album, Apocryphon. The bike features quality components by Rant and the Shadow Conspiracy.”
Colony‘s front brake wizard Bobbie Altiser just built up a fresh new limited edition Prody frame and lets the chrome shine in his latest bike check. The 20th anniversary edition Prody is a throwback to classic BMX bikes with a framestand, but with an updated, modern geometry. Only 100 of these frames were made, so if you want one, you’d better start making some moves!
As you would expect from a rider named Streetkid, there are many unique spots and tucked hops, flat rail tech clips and polejams in this edit for Alpha BMX Shop. What you probably wouldn’t expect is a predator to hard whip…
Poland‘s Tow D made the move to Poznań for school and immediately began this extracurricular edit- only to break his wrist before getting everyone he wanted. So look forward to his next complete edit..
