One way to get on my bad side REALLY fast is to talk to me about hip hop. I LOVE rap and HATE a lot of hip hop heads (They hate me too – we’re even).
This “hip hop DJ” rolled in with SERATO to lay some scratches down on one of my friends tracks. Our fun game is trying to name all the rappers on this poster – because it’s an impossible hash of horribly drawn rappers from the 80s + 90s + Eminem. Anyways. The guy around the bottom right corner in the black hat is NOT FUCKING BUSTA RHYMES. When I explained that it was definitely NOT busta this guy started shooting off “facts” at me in some attempt to make me feel stupid (which is fine – i make people feel stupid all the time) – untill he asked “Do you even know where Busta comes from?” he then tried to inform me that Busta’s first track was Scenario and he used to rock it with Tribe.
SO LEADERS OF THE NEW SCHOOL NEVER HAPPENED!
I kept bringing up the song “Just another case of the PTA” and he looked through me – dead face – while still running his mouth about Scenario.

You know when you meet people that has that infectious energy that just rubs off? That’s L.A. based rapper/musician Nova Rockafeller to us. A bit unconventional, a whole lot of open-mindedness and seemingly a girl who doesn’t care about other people’s pre-conceived ideas or rules – Nova is the girl you’d like to party with and to have as a supportive friend. We sent her an email to hear more from the girl herself and what she likes.
JULIA: What have you been up to?
NOVA: I’ve been in the studio with Justin Warfield working on my EP. It’s alternative rock meets the best rapper ever.
What’s your story?
My story is long as fuck. Basically. I’m this cute little white girl who grew up a little in Jamaica. Then I grew up a little in group homes in Canada. Then I thought “Fuck growing up” because it’s stupid and started just showing up on peoples couches for months. Read more »
I’m not gay. I’ve done some super gay things in the past (I’ve been on dates with girls and dated girls) – but I think i’m pretty much only into guys (and apparently the WORST ones at that). But I’m open minded. Since I live in Hollywood now I had to ask myself what...
I come from the napster generation and as a result of this I have THE strangest taste in music… And I don’t care what anybody says – I like what I like.
For the last few years I’ve been really into yogurt so I figured I’d point you in the right direction because I’ve basically tried all of it. Like all of it.
1. Strawberry Vanilla – Trader Joe’s
This yogurt is so fucking good. It’s like eating full fat cream and doesn’t even taste like yogurt but it’s still my favorite yogurt. All of the other Trader Joe yogurts are fucking crap though. I don’t have any funny stories about Trader Joes… except if you go to the one in Burbank there is a secret cash register hidden behind a pillar that never has a line. I call it the TwiLine.

Some of the greatest.
The most valuable thing I ever taught myself to do was to throw myself forward into whatever I was scared of. To really just fucking go for it. And I was always so scared of failing that I would work a million times harder to prevent it. And I failed a lot. But every...
