What’s Scout up to these days?
While we’re getting ready for the release of our March-April issue, we’re already cooking up the May-June issue and our own events in between.
Most of the time though, we’re just grinding and hustling to go out on the weekend. This week, we’re inching closer to a lot of things: Ang Bandang Shirley’s album launch, the next stage of The Gig Circuit, and next week, our #ScoutxUP Campus Tour. Let’s take a look back at last week through our faves.

GQ September 2016 — It’s always a great day when I can find a pretty good issue of GQ at a Book Sale. (Even better if it’s a Lucky Peach.) This issue’s got NFL player Cam Newton on the cover, and to my surprise, the first appearance of Chance the Rapper in the magazine (if I remember correctly). See if you can spot which parts of Scout are inspired by GQ.
Drake – “Free Smoke” — Pretty much the only joint I’m digging from More Life so far.

“Does She Know” by Kiana Valenciano Music Video – It really makes my heart flutter in joy whenever I see some dancing in other media platforms aside from dance competitions. In the music video of her latest single, “Does She Know”, Kiana proves to everyone that dancing is indeed in her genes. Choreographed by A-Team’s very own, Michael Arda, this music video is one milestone among others for the local dance community. PS: I was really hoping to see Curtismith dance in this video. Where you at bro? Haha!
Carl Jan Cruz for FYI Journal – “Pagoda” Tragedy” came out today in FYI Journal, featuring pieces from Carl Jan Cruz’ Spring/Summer 2017 collection, worn by one of our favorite Scout Friends™, Lean Ordinario. The photos are just breathtaking. Shout out to Renzo Navarro who took the photos, and Nash Cruz who styled the shoot. You can check the photos here. And if you guys want to see Carl Jan Cruz’ pieces in the flesh, they have it available for you in their showroom. Pieces from the collection “52-62” will be displayed at the Penthouse Showroom from 10am to 5pm. Hurry because today is the last day too!

“Please Go And Come Back” – システム FAIRY – This song is on loop ever since I saw it a few days ago online. What genre is this? Future funk? Kawaii core? I dig it.
Drake – More Life – Saks lang. I love that Sampha and Skepta are there, but this whole project feels like a sampler platter of Drake’s different flows and topics–how many times do we have to hear Drake talking down on an ex? Feels totally uninspired too. Listen to it once.
