Outasight's Insights: On Instagram, Whiskey, and Tumblr


If you haven't heard of Outasight, chances are you've heard one of his songs. (Or, maybe you saw our recent interview with him.) The New York-based singer and rapper is best known for 2011's "Tonight is the Night," which was featured in a Pepsi commercial. Well, now he's guest-blogging for the Daily Details blog. In this, his inaugural post, he gives us the scoop on three of his favorite things of the moment. If you have something to share with him, let us know on Facebook or Twitter.

Mr. Evidence on Istagram

Sure, Instagram has led to a new slew of iPhone photographers that can make almost anything look artful with the help of some filters. But some accounts are truly worth following. Enter: Evidence, the long-time California rapper and producer, whose account has attracted more than 13,000 followers so far. The man takes his pictures seriously, using special lenses to capture some incredible imagery documenting his travels around the globe.

Templeton Rye

While on tour, specifically in Iowa, my homie Grieves (of Grieves and Budo) turned me onto this spirit. As the story goes, this particular rye was originally made and distributed in Iowa—and became mob kingpin Al Capone's drink of choice. Over the past few years, the brand has opened up its gates to wider distribution while still holding true to its "prohibition recipe." The small-batch mentality works here, providing a unique spice that isn't found in other smooth sips. For brown liquor champions like me, this is a bottle to look out for, a true treat to be sipped neat.

This tumblr is an absolute favorite of mine. Managed by hip-hop industry veteran Ev Boogie, UpTorthtrips is curated as if it were a hip-hop museum rather than a vast wasteland of re-blogs. Some serious image digging is going on here, and the nostalgia levels run high. Give it a peep if you're interested in rare photos of hip-hop culture and sports. Warning: Upon visiting this site you may spend way more time than you bargained for skimming through the archives (AKA "The Vault").
