When I was in middle school, we had a “Career Day” that basically consisted of a firefighter, a cop, a teacher, and people from other professions we were supposed to be impressed and inspired by (Lawyer! Hedge-fund manager! Real estate agent!) and who would present us viable, respectable options for what out lives could be like after the awkward years of  middle school, where you're more concerned with bodily changes and who can make the best fart jokes. And, hopefully, some kids would find some spark that would set them off on the path of proper, respectable ambition and grown-up professionalism.

It never really did that. Actually, much more than that, it made the reality of getting old and getting a job and the concept of inevitably having to become a “responsible adult” look even worse than any of us had imagined, seeing these people with their boring-ass lives try to lie like their shit-ass job was something to be excited about.

Know why?

Because Gucci Mane never came to my middle school.

And so, god bless the kids at Crawford Long Middle School in Atlanta, Ga, who got exactly that today, and, in the process, received probably the best education any of us will ever receive.  Because just like Wu-Tang and Waka Flocka before him, Gucci Mane is all about the kids; and while Lil B might be giving lectures at NYU, Gucci's getting them on the right path early at public middle schools.

We're not just saying that because “Trap God” is all we've been listening to at Superchief offices for the last, like, month straight; we're saying that because, dude, imagine the exchanges these kids must have had with Gucci, and the enlightenment they received as a result. Shit, imagine being one of those kids.

Student: “Mr. Gucci, what can I do to be as successful as you someday?”
Gucci: “Don't get caught. BRRR.” 

There is no better role model.

I'll say this; I wish they'd let rappers with lightning-bolt-and-ice-cream face tats who've been to jail for catching a body and rap about cooking coke and sipping lean as a lifestyle come speak to us when I was in school.

Hope those little fuckers learned something. And thank (trap) GOD for whatever crack the school board was smoking when they chose Gucci to be the guest of honor.

(and maybe he ran into that girl who's suing Chief Keef for child support.)

Right now, all we've got are the two pictures in this post to go by (both from Gucci's social media accounts) but, if those are anything to go by, we'll have ourselves a whole crop of lil' Gucci's coming out of Crawford Long soon.

And the world's a better place for it.

FIGHT CLUB: THE BEST OF FRIDAY NIGHT THROWDOWN

Following the news of Throwdown’s return at SXSW this year with a Texas vs. NYC event, it seems only appropriate to take a look back at the history of Friday Night Throwdown, and the coverage we’ve had of it here on Superchief over the years. For the uninitiated; Friday Night Throwdown wasn’t just NYC’s best underground boxing event, it was NYC’s best underground party.

TEXAS VS. NYC: THROWDOWN RETURNS AT SXSW THIS YEAR

The organization that brought Ford models, Marines and Bloods together for New York’s best underground party is bringing their business to Austin, and bringing with them a Texas vs. NYC event…and Superchief will be covering the whole thing, from start to finish.

HIGH ON HUNGER: JANE CHARDIET

“High on Hunger” is Jane Chardiet’s new zine, featuring personal essay, photography and interviews with 12 artists, including some of our favorites, about their 2013 and their artistic goals in the new year, along with photographs of each licking fire. It’s good stuff, so I asked Jane about her 2013, because turnabout’s fair play and that’s how the game works.

12 O’ CLOCK BOYS (BALTIMORE STREETBIKE REALNESS)

Whatever your city is doing, what the homies out in B-More are doing is 10x as crazy. 12 O’ Clock Boys is one of the hardest movies we’ve seen in a long time, hands down, exploring a city and a culture that just doesn’t give a fuck (and featuring Baltimore himies like Schwarz on the soundtrack) the film gets more done in it’s 75 minutes than most documentaries do in twice that.

TAPE BAG #1: I HAVEN’T GOTTEN OFF MY COUCH IN DAYS.

R.I.P RICKY LUANDA OF CHAIN GANG

ALWAYS KEEP THE CAMERA RUNNING: MAKS SUSKI’S VIDEOS OF THE NYC MUSIC SCENE

Maks Suski has been hard at work documenting live music in NYC on video for the last 4 years; we asked him to compile a list of some of his favorite videos that he’s shot, a list that includes Japanther, Action Bronson, Death Grips, Culo, Crystal Castles, Limp Wrist, Black Pus and more.

THERE IS A TINY LEG A QUARTER OF AN INCH BELOW YOUR TENTH RIB.

“Although Tiny Leg’s sound owes much of it’s inspiration to the Oakland glucose and thumbtrack scenes of the mid-nineties, and has been called by HotFridge magazine ‘a thumbcore homage to the sound of Velvet Curtis and Taco’ and ‘a slick-stale, neo-juicy, post-hipster alchemy, somewhere in between gluke-wave and puke-base’ by PeckerwoodsToday, those sentences are too journalistic and not souague enough, if one may permit my french.”

SUPERCHIEF GALLERY AT MIAMI ART BASEL 2013: WILL SMITH CAN SUCK IT.

Superchief Gallery’s showing at Select Fair 2013 is even bigger, better and more batshit crazy than our 2012 showing was – check out photos here, and for homies in Miami, we’ll be at the Catalina Hotel all this week!

STACY KRANITZ’S SKATOPIA (50+ Photos From a Burnout’s Paradise)

Photographer Stacy Kranitz recently journeyed to Skatopia, a famed 88 acre skate park/commune in Ohio which was founded in 1995, documented in the 2010 film of the same name, and once described by writer Kevin Duffel as “a demented mess that meets halfway between an anarchistic Mad Maxian Thunderdome and a utopian skateboard society.” Goddamn if it isn’t one of the best things we’ve ever seen.
