John Seymour of Sweet Chick Talks Harlem History + CHicken & Waffles | @JohnSeymourNYC @HypeBeast @sweetchicklife
Since introducing the next generation of chicken and waffles to its first Williamsburg location, Sweet Chick has brought the love across the East River to its new recently-opened shop in the Lower East Side. There, hungry visitors can look forward to some of the best homemade fried chicken and waffles New York has to offer as well as a whole 'nother plethora of updated takes on comfort food staples. Moving into the former location of the legendary Max Fish bar, the new spot retains much of the original establishment's character with much of the interior sourced by co-owner John Seymour himself. via Hypebeast

.... As labels lost revenue in the mid-2000s, the hip-hop A&R became more of a memory. The artists who did generate significant attention after the collapse of the major labels all tended to work with low-profile, beat-oriented (as opposed to song-oriented) producers, often exclusively. And they'd be as cognizant of songwriting as they were of rapping. (Think Gucci Mane and Zaytoven, Max B and Dame Grease, or Drake and 40.) But for so many others, success and buzz proved elusive; to be a great rapper, one had to become a great all-around rap artist, and everyone wasn't built that way. But to celebrate independence from the industry structure also tends to mean distancing oneself from the A&R plugs such a structure brings.
