RZA Announces Forthcoming Graphic Novel Bobby Digital and The Pit Of Snakes  via Z2 Comics

RZA has today proudly announced that he is bringing his exceptional storytelling skills to the comic book medium with the announcement of Bobby Digital and the Pit of Snakes, an original graphic novel to be released in 2022.

The founding member of the multimedia supergroup The Wu-Tang Clan first introduced the world to his alter-ego with the 1998 album Bobby Digital in Stereo, with lush digital orchestral sounds and inventive beats, putting the rapper’s love of comic books on full display through its concept and execution. Now, exactly 23 years since its original release, RZA announces a partnership with Z2 Comics to give the character a story in the medium which inspired his creation.

RZA says “Out of all my creative personas and alter egos Bobby Digital is probably the best fit, for comics and graphic novels. It’s a pleasure for me to collaborate with Z2 Comics and bring this lush world of creativity into the comic space. The readers are going to be hit with something they never seen coming. Bong – Bong.

Who are you, what is real? This is the question Bobby Digital is seeking to answer. Embracing his id, ego and superego he embarks on a quest to figure out the nature of his reality and himself. He will be ambushed by enemies unknown, he will be tried in ways most men can’t endure. Will he be victorious? Most of all, will he survive the Pit of Snakes?! From the mind of the legendary RZA, Bobby Digital and The Pit of Snakes will coincide with the relaunch of the iconic character and be synced to music that will melt your mind.

Z2 Publisher and CEO Josh Frankel says “RZA has always shown himself to be a Swiss Army Knife of creativity, elevating every medium he touches, and to be able to help bring an already existing comic/music hybrid such as Bobby Digital to the page is amazing. I think everyone will be equally amazed at the result.”

Bobby Digital and the Pit of Snakes pairs RZA with White Noise Studios member Ryan O’Sullivan, whose last collaboration with Poppy was widely celebrated by fans and critics alike, with Sound & Fury artist Vasilis Lolos rounding out the team to bring the world of Bobby Digital to life. The book will be released in both softcover and hardcover formats in finer bookstores, comic shops and record stores everywhere in May 2022, with special limited deluxe and super deluxe versions available to preorder now exclusively through the Z2 website.

About Z2 Comics:

Z2 Comics is the premier destination for official music-related graphic novels, created in partnership with top-tier artists, musicians, directors and pop-culture icons. Distributed globally via Simon & Schuster, Z2 has collaborated with such diverse artists as Blondie, Cheech & Chong, Elvis Presley, Freddie Mercury, Joan Jett, Motley Crue, Ivan Moody, Gorillaz, Machine Gun Kelly, Sublime, Yungblud, Cypress Hill, Babymetal, Major Lazer, Rico Nasty and Alter Bridge as well as debut comic works by Grammy-nominated artists Sturgill Simpson and Poppy, as well as essential album tie-ins by The Doors, Anthrax, Public Enemy, Ronnie James Dio, King Diamond, and All Time Low. Additionally, the company has tapped top talent for the official graphic biographies of such pop-culture legends as The Grateful Dead, Beethoven, John Lee Hooker and Charlie “Bird” Parker.

About RZA:

Wu-Tang Clan mastermind Robert Diggs, best known as the RZA among several other pseudonyms, is one of hip-hop’s most revered, influential producers. With the group’s classic 1993 debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), he established their widely imitated core sound, consisting of stark, booming beats and chilling samples (heavily drawing from vintage soul records as well as kung fu movies), setting the backdrop for the crew’s gritty, violent narratives.

Following the album’s trailblazing success, Diggs participated in the pioneering horrorcore group the Gravediggaz, and produced the first wave of solo releases by his fellow Wu-Tang members. Starting with 1997’s Wu-Tang Forever, he concentrated less on producing Wu-Tang releases and devoted more time to his solo career, with the gold-selling debut by his alter ego Bobby Digital arriving in 1998.

He also successfully ventured into film and television work, beginning with his highly acclaimed score for Jim Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999) and continuing with a lengthy string of soundtracks (Kill Bill Volume 1 & 2) and acting roles (American Gangster, Californication, Brick Mansions, The Dead Don’t Die). He made his directorial debut with 2012’s The Man with the Iron Fists, and has also directed Love Beats Rhymes (2017) and Cut Throat City (2020). RZA executively produced the Hulu original series Wu-Tang: An American Saga. He’s also written two books: The Wu-Tang Manual (2005) and The Tao Of Wu (2009).

The Underground Chicago Review

By: Emily Bunn × Vaughn Lowery

360 Magazine was invited to Chicago’s most-exclusive nightclub for an evening of merrymaking, music and memories. The Underground Chicago recently reopened last weekend after a fifteen-month lockdown and is yet again revitalizing Chicago’s VIP social scene. The choice club for A-listers– including celebrities like Justin Bieber, UsherLaBron James, David BeckhamWill.I.Am, and Miley Cyrus– The Underground consistently delivers elevated experiences surrounding music, cocktails, fashion, art and design. Entrepreneur and owner of The Underground, Billy Dec, comments on the club’s long-awaited re-opening:

The COVID pandemic has wiped out many live music and nightclub venues across the country,” says Dec. “Historically, nightclubs have had a pivotal role in cultural evolution. The Underground family fought to stay alive and reopen because we see it as a major responsibility—it’s our duty to elevate our community platform so people can come together to celebrate music, fashion, dance, art and design. After an unprecedented and impactful run, we look forward to constantly elevating and innovating our industry and The Underground experience fueled with excitement, creativity, service and positive energy.”

The vibrant ambiance of The Underground reflected the colorful diversity of guests inside, all of which were busy unleashing their signature moves on the packed dance floor. The discotheque throbbed with ecstatic energy and heavy bass lines all night long. A state-of-the-art sound system blared trendy music across all corners of the club for all to hear. The ambiance of the tunes was complimented by thrilling pyrotechnics and digital screens that projected artsy flicks.

Upon arriving at the legendary establishment, 360 Magazine was greeted with service from hospitable, welcoming staff members– including security and a stylish porter. On the particular night we visited, Lil Jon made a star appearance. Lil Jon, the musical mastermind behind releases such as Turn Down for What, Get Low, Cyclone, and Alive (with Offset and 2 Chainz), filled the club with energy and exuberance. Soundscapes swelled across every crowded corner of the club as the rapper delivered an incredible performance.

Lil Jon wasn’t the only celebrity guest, as he performed alongside Emmy award-winning TV host, actor and personality, Billy Dec. Dec also is the restaurateur and owner of the iconic nightclub but is best known for his roles in “Chicagoland,” “Mollywood,” “One Small Hitch,” and “Adventures in the Sin Bin,” among others. Dec has also appearance on many national broadcast programs, including NBC’s Today Show and NBC Today in Nashville.

Looking ahead, Dec is set to open The Underground’s sister venue, The Underground Cocktail Club. Scheduled to open over Lollapalooza weekend (July 30-Aug 1), this new establishment will feature a separate entrance to The Underground’s building and emphasize the nostalgic, vintage appeal of the 1920’s. The Underground Cocktail Club will focus on creating innovative cocktails and featuring more live performances. Next time 360 Magazine comes to Chicago, we can’t wait to have another memorable, lively night at the Underground.

Allen Iverson’s Stepover Returning for Reebok 20th Anniversary

Reebok Confirms 20th Anniversary Revival of Iconic Answer IV “Stepover,” Available June 4

Today, following the revival of is coveted OG predecessor, Reebok has confirmed the official 20th Anniversary rerelease of Allen Iverson’s Answer IV “Stepover” (retailing at $130).

Introduced by Reebok for Iverson ahead of his momentous 2000-01 campaign, Answer IV was built to compliment the polarizing point guard’s on-court energy and off-court style, while carrying forward key Answer-series design elements like DMX cushioning. Colorways introduced by Reebok throughout the season would mark a multitude of historic moments via A.I. Most notable is a specific black and white iteration, now known as the “Stepover,” adorned by Iverson in game 1 of the ’00-’01 title matchup. The moniker nods an historic moment from the game in which A.I. shakes his opponent to the floor with a deceiving dribble move before draining a baseline jumper and stepping over the would-be defender as the crowd erupts and he returns up court. That viral frame, which served to further define Iverson’s vitality and dominance, is remembered through the Answer IV “Stepover.”

“Answer IV is the crown jewel of Iverson’s journey and the cultural shift he helped to lead,” recalled veteran Reebok Footwear Designer Xavier Jones upon the OG model’s rerelease earlier this year. “By his ’00-’01 season, ‘Chuck’ was already so beloved for his style and how he approached the game, but that year truly cemented A.I. as a cultural icon. On his feet, Answer IV became a symbol for the new era of modern athlete and a celebration of self-expression. It is without a doubt one of the most iconic sneakers to ever grace the hardwood.”

The 20th Anniversary reissue stays true its original design elements like the fading gradient “I3” logo cascading down the tongue veiled by the zipper shroud, 3M reflective details returning to the “I3” quarter panels and top of tongue, the original eye-catching upper and a dynamic outsole featuring DMX foam, a TPU bridge plate and tactical tread patterns. The outsole is complemented by OG graphic executions like the Iverson head sunken underfoot, engraved “Only The Strong Survive” tagline and “I3” and Vector logos at the bridge and forefoot.

While Answer IV carries forward Reebok basketball heritage and the legacy of Allen Iverson, the unique sneaker is equally fitting for rising hoopers today writing their own story.

Reebok’s Answer IV “Stepover,” retailing at $130, will be available globally on June 4 from Reebok and select local retailers.

MORE ABOUT REEBOK’S DMX CUSHIONING TECHNOLOGY

A product of Reebok’s Advanced Concepts division formed in the mid 1980s, DMX  (short for Dynamax) featured a series of interlinked air chambers under the foot that, thanks to the motion of the wearer’s stride, would fill and empty with air accordingly. If the wearer’s foot movement indicated that air was needed in a specific portion of the shoe, pressure would cause air to fill the corresponding chamber. This movement of air helped deliver new levels of comfort, cushioning and stability. The technology was suited for running, training, walking and basketball, but it really shone in the DMX Run 10 model in 1997. That same year, the original Answer basketball sneaker was released in time for Christmas, marking the beginning of an iconic line of shoes that thrived until 2014. As Reebok’s first basketball shoe to include DMX technology, commercials for the Answer emphasized how the new technology helped Iverson pull off his classic moves like the crossover. The effects of the DMX technology were so natural that Iverson said, “It’s like I don’t even think about it.”

New Art Gallery at the Aston Martin Residences

The Aston Martin Residences Miami is creating a permanent art gallery on the 52nd floor of the luxury tower, which is due for completion at the end of next year. The Art Gallery celebrates a love of beauty and an appreciation of art in all forms, values shared by developer G&G Business Developments and its partner Aston Martin.

Ahead of its completion, the Aston Martin Residences’ Art Gallery is launching virtually and will showcase a renowned artist online every two months. To launch the virtual gallery, a 3D immersive experience, the Aston Martin Residences has partnered with British artist and acclaimed photographer Julian Lennon to present an exclusive exhibition of hand-picked images from his personal collections. The virtual Art Gallery and inaugural exhibit, titled “Vision,” can now be seen by visiting this website.

Germán Coto, CEO of G&G Business Developments, said: “Art and design are woven into the soul of the Aston Martin Residences. Every decision we make is born from an intrinsic love of beauty and meticulous attention to detail. We imagine residents will fill their homes with beautiful artworks, and we’re creating the Art Gallery to offer a secluded and exclusive space for our owners to immerse themselves in an ever-changing canvas of contemporary art. We’ll present works from established artists and emerging talents that make our hearts beat faster, and we hope the Art Gallery will inspire residents in their daily lives.”

He also said: “We’re 70% sold, and we know that our residents appreciate art. It’s this love of art together with a desire for the highest quality finishes, light-filled spaces, and of course, the stunning waterside location that has attracted clients to the Aston Martin Residences Miami.”

For Lennon, capturing moments through photography is an intimate experience. “I aim, through my photography, to grant the viewer intimate access to the lives and locations of my subjects, as well as insight into my own personal journey,” he said. “In a city as vibrant and diverse as Miami, I invite the residents to draw a relationship to their own lives in these images, and to take part in my mission to unite us through empathy in the lives of others.”

 Julian Lennon’s fine art photography exhibition, “Vision,” the first to be presented by the Aston Martin Residences’ Art Gallery, can now be seen virtually, ahead of the physical opening in 2022.

Lamborghini Debuts Private, VIP Lounge In NYC

Inviting in guests to the luxurious world of Lamborghini, the company is proudly announcing the debut premier of their new, VIP lounge in New York City. This ultra-luxe private space is located on Manhattan’s west side, conveniently positioned beneath The High Line elevated walking path. The 5,400 square-foot lounge also functions as Automobili Lamborghini’s NYC flagship.

Reminiscent of Lamborghini’s facilities in Sant’Agata Bolognese, the new NYC lounge keeps with Lamborghini’s prestigious brand ethos and DNA. Inside, guests can view never-before-seen vehicles, enjoy authentic Italian culinary experiences, and observe bespoke exhibitions. Enveloped by Lamborghini–from sneakers, to Supreme skateboards, and even the wallpaper– guests are surrounded by high class, elevated elegance in the lounge. The company’s new private space invites in guests to the breathtaking world of all that Lamborghini has to offer.

President and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, remarked on Lamborghini’s exciting new NYC Lounge venture: “We are opening the doors to a private space our customers and friends can call their own with exclusive access… Following the success of our Lamborghini Lounge venues across the globe, this new flagship in Manhattan will create a vibrant and personal connection to share the Lamborghini lifestyle, a true reflection of our fine Italian heritage. I look forward to visiting our Lamborghini customers and friends in New York soon.”

The new Lamborghini flagship location exudes excellence and innovation. Keeping with the company’s Italian history and luxurious lifestyle, the two-story gallery venue features several private spaces for guests to quietly enjoy their time. Exclusive concierges are provided to best enjoy the space. Additionally, there is an As Personam design studio that lets customers configure their own, customized Lamborghini vehicle. The design studio has infinite color palette and materials selections, so customers can personalize their vehicles to their exact specification and liking. The New York Lamborghini Lounge also features a driving simulation so guests can experience what it’s like to truly ride in style.

Chief Marketing and Sales Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, Federico Foschini, commented on the remarkable NYC Lamborghini Lounge: “This unique space will serve as Lamborghini’s outpost in one of the world’s greatest cities…The Ad Personam studio provides an extension and personal touchpoint, which could previously only be found at our home in Sant’Agata, and we look forward to offering this and access to never-before-seen limited-edition models to VIP visitors of the Lounge NYC.”

Venturing further into the lounge, meeting spaces and a full-service kitchen are provided by luxury kitchen manufacturer, La Dolce Vita. Both designed and constructed in Italy, La Dolce Vita’s custom-made contemporary interiors promise the highest quality in home space living. Granite backsplash and countertops, emblazoned with the Lamborghini logo, furnish the kitchen with a modern, chic flair. Both of these spaces can be utilized for private gatherings, and feature a dedicated, private Italian chef at guests’ disposal. After a long flight, the last thing travelers want is airline food. Lamborghini clients, friends, and partners can skip the complimentary airline meal and instead indulge in the fine cuisine of their private chef.

The Lamborghini NYC Lounge is perfect for travelers looking to get some R&R during a layover, or to feel refreshed after a long day on the move. With soothing amenities like a shower, guests can come to the lounge to look and feel their best again. Lamborghini also offers refreshments and spirits for those needing a little pick-me-up. Crisp white walls border the lounge’s stylish, geometric art décor and lush house plants. Surrounded by the utmost quality of craftsmanship and design, guests can effortlessly unwind with the reassurance that they are fully being taken care of. Sleek black furnishings in the lounge provide an aesthetically-pleasing contrast to the walls and allow for a spotlight to be shown on the vibrant, true star of the show– the Huracán STO.

The premiere of the Huracán Super Trofeo Omologata (STO), a road-homologated super sports car, is taking place in the Lamborghini NYC Lounge. This limited-series, super sports car was crafted expertly, keeping in mind the company’s racing heritage of Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s one-make Huracán Super Trofeo EVO race series, as well as its three-time 24 Hours of Daytona-winning and three-time 12 Hours of Sebring-winning Huracán GT3 EVO. Impressively, the Huracán STO model features a V10 naturally aspirated 640 HP engine. With this, the rear-wheel drive of the luxury vehicle offers the emotional appeal of track driving experience on every road drive.

Other brand partners will be activated and featured throughout the Lamborghini NYC lounge in the coming month. These exhibitions will be exclusive to guests of the lounge.

The newest timepiece from Roger Dubuis–the Excalibur Huracán STO– will also be premiering in NYC at Lamborghini’s new lounge. The innovative watch will be exhibited by levitation in the watchmaker’s Gravity Window. The watch is extremely limited edition, with only 88 units produced. Channeling the same exhilarating feelings as its automobile namesake, the 45mm Excalibur Huracan STO is powered by innovative technology, developed in close partnership with the Lamborghini Squadra Corse.

Bang & Olfsen’s premium Advanced 3D Sound System turns up the decibels of Lamborghini’s NYC space. The 3D Sound System, acclaimed inside the Lamborghini Super SUV Urus, is now bringing life and an array of premium audio systems to the Lamborghini lounge. The state-of-the-art sound experience is ideal for hosting both private events and gatherings.

Guests come to the lounge to sit down, relax, and revitalize– and what better place to do so than in Trademark Italian furnishings from Living Divani. Living Divani and Lamborghini are both members of Altagamma–the foundation that gathers Italian companies with international recognition and operating at the highest segment of the market as it pertains to innovation, quality, service. The NYC lounge mixes Lamborghini’s design ethos and super sports cars with Living Divani’s modular Extrasoft sofa and other latest novelties. This combination of Lamborghini and Living Divani in one space makes for a sophisticated and inspirational space imbued with a true Made in Italy experience. As of Spring 2021, the exclusive Lamborghini Lounge NYC is open by invitation only to clients and Lamborghini friends and partners.
