A personal message sourced from the great Neji Vibez himself!
” I would like to present the first commercial for my upcoming audio project “GRA!L”. The visuals were shot and edited by my homie Elijah LeNoir. He did a really great job! It’s been an extremely long and tiring process working on this project, but everything is coming to a close now and i’m gearing up to release it soon. This project is a culmination of my experiences over the past year and a half recorded over 15 tracks. I hope you guys enjoy this teaser for the time being though. PLEASE feel free to like, share, and repost it. Peace love and respect. Always. – NEJI VIBEZ ✌🐼 #GRAILcomingsoon ”
Hello readers and thanks for joining us for this update. As you all have noticed we embarked on the first edition of the Lazy Sunday Tour. Lazy Sunday is a music project created by Austin Rapbaum in partnership with BigBro. Lazy Sunday was recently released Sunday, August 7th, 2016 in a personal house gathering at the home of Austin Rapbaum. Many attended the release party and were immersed in the world of sets by performing artists that the producer himself considers family: Evan Thibodeaux, Mike Hazel, Samwyse Ganja, Keith Jone$…
Currently project #portculture has set up a line of events to create the Lazy Sunday Tour. We are visiting a handful of cities in Louisiana and Texas spreading our movement along the way. Our recent nights have been very magnificent and we are extremely thankful for the amount of support shown to us. We are working really hard to bring you a night of great vibes, energy, and music. Join us on our upcoming days:
Our first date for the #LazySunday Tour was in Slidell, Louisiana. We had the pleasure of meeting tons of new friends and making connections with a few local creatives as well. Thanks to Neji Vibez and Djenko for manifesting this popup together with us. Thank you Pauly and Dapper for your excellent performances. The ice cream shop down the street is really cool and Time Out Lounge is the place to be for your nightlife fix. Jordan the sound guy was the nicest person, thank you for making this a reality.
Tonight we go live in New Orleans. Positive vibrations.
We are overly excited to begin sharing our adventure through the thirdcoast with you all. This Wednesday we hit the road with Austin Rapbaum, BigBro, Samwyse Ganja, Keith Jone$, and Nathaniel Red in honor of the release of Lazy Sunday. Take a listen to the project here at www.austinrapbaum.com

What you can expect from us:

We have various content creators involved in this project sharing their own story. We hope you enjoy.
Upcoming: interview from local creators in Goofy Froot this week and information for the August 3rd music + art showcase.
Cop is a take on new musical fusion of hip hop and synth wave, packing messages in pockets of “vibe downs” (what we used to know as breakdowns until now). Hip-hop is constantly evolving and taking new forms throughout generations. It’s always being interpreted in many ways.
Cop is a refreshing interpretation of sound for fans of rap and soul. The entire song is produced by our very own Samwyse Ganja, an upcoming producer currently based in the third coast (originally from Washington, DC). Together Samwyse and Keith are writing a new album coming out later in the year and are picking up tours in the gulf coast.

More coming soon, we are so taken away…
the music and art is unstoppable.
Hello friends and portfamily, good morning. We would like to start off sharing our appreciation for everyone taking involvement and interest in our collective project. Thank you for your blessings and encouragement.
Today we are introducing Mike Hazel to the portfamily. Hazel, a Washington DC native, is a young, rich, ambitious, rebel that walks the streets sharing art, spreading the good news of local culture and the mighty DoloWan papers for all your rolling-up needs. Self made and driven, our renegade takes steps in bettering not only his life, but the lives of his artistic friends around him.
We linked up by chance and began to share our story together, and it was magic how the passion matched the drive to succeed and better the world around us through art, creation, and interaction.
It’s our unique vision of this realm that has allowed our paths to cross.
Hazel also has been collaborating with local musicians by helping produce their own batch of rolling papers under the name DoloWan, providing a unique product to any and all who request them.
The artistic entrepreneur says, “At the end of the day the artist uses the ‘canvas’ to reinterpret an impression from the world around them. Some replicate an image to where it can be a mirror image but I’d rather give my customer a bit more than that. I want them to see the freedom that art gives me in everyday life. So I’m not going to always create within the lines but more so feeling based. You will see me break down and distort the world around to show you that everyone’s view of this world is unique.”
His future is as bright as the color of his pallet.
Give his social media links a buzz and check out his Soundcloud for some of his music as well, highly recommended:
