After the party is the AFTER PARTAY! Check out the infamous Pusha T, live on Sunday the 28th! Tickets are available now via 365 Live!
Recently, we got the chance to experience something epic as foodies: The Houston Food Truck Festival. Never in our lives have we seen trucks that had any and everything that you could possibly imagine, spanning from tacos to creole cuisine, to escargot. So if you missed it, make sure you check out the highlights above!
We’re proud to be posting the first Vlog [for lack of better term!] for Skewby! Check out the first installment of his “That Time” series, which highlights one of Skewby’s performances in Oxford, MS!
The Cool Table is back! If you weren’t in attendance AND you are able to come this time, we recommend that you do so. This is an event which showcases talent from the Houston Underground, and showcases just a taste of what Houston has to offer! So mark your calendars, and make sure that you don’t miss out on something great!
Watch as Nipsey Hu$$le gives us all a peek into a day in his life, this time while he visits the offices of Global Grind, XXL, and more! We also get to see snippets of a performance he gave at Santos!

Doughbeezy is definitely on his grind! Watch as Doughbeezy went on the Texas run of the infamous Smoker’s Club tour!
As innovators of the game, the Skinny Guy camp has once again proven to the world why they deserve that title, and that the summer is theirs! The Skinny Guy website/summer ’12 line was debuted in a unique way that also served as the return of the SPEAK series, hosted by Brad Gilmore. While several performers were rocking the stage throughout the night, the official Skinny Guy website served as the backdrop. In between the performances, the DJ helped kept the good vibes going, and guests were able to go to the “laptop lounge” and make purchases from the new site/online store. For those who preferred it, select styles were on hand for immediate purchase. Needless to say, our neighborhood friendly Skinny Guys have continued to be trendsetters on the Houston fashion scene, and as long as they stay hungry, they will keep eating good!

The Holidays: we like to think of this as a time of the year as a period to reflect on all of the ups & down of the past year, celebrate good company, let go of all of your inhibitions [well ALMOST all!] and celebrate life and making it through another year. This year, Trey Poindexter made that possible with The Expose: an event that was held at the swanky Drake Nightclub of Houston. The event was nothing short of astonishing! Upon arriving, guests were able to take their pictures on a red carpet, truly arriving in style. The room was filled with beautiful people, amazing art, and positive vibes. DJ YoungStreetz [yes, The Raw Republic's own!] was providing the sounds throughout the evening, giving us music from hip hop to reggae to even “old skool” hip hop and r&b…we can honestly say that we did not see one person sitting still. Being at the Expose gave us the feeling of more of a “house party” vibe, rather than being in a club. It felt good to be able to go out, and see everyone genuinely enjoy themselves. Needless to say, we will definitely be in attendance of more of Mr. Poindexter’s events, and we advise that if you are able, that you do the same!
THANK YOU Mr. Poindexter!
WATCH Doughbeezy’s recent takeover of ATX & UT!
