On Saturday we had our second Block Party. They're institutions that we intend to keep going on a regular basis; gatherings of the people we consider part of the community we are building at Thrill City. Despite the fact that we were competing with a two-thousand strong line of people waiting to see the King of North Carolina for $1 in Raleigh, we had a sick day and the energy was everything we had hoped for:

Chase and Ty came by and hung out before heading to the J Cole show. Chase came back a couple hours later; you win some you lose some.

Every now and then it's nice to get a little action in front of the lens. If you missed this Block Party we just want to let you know that you also missed a Killer Playlist; that's what I'm dancing around to here.

Tonight at 8 pm we release a new mini-collection of gear for the summer, including plenty of Hornets gear to get fans in the QC ready for the upcoming basketball season. The release is rounded out by American Flag Logo tanks and a new colorway of the classic "Thrilluminati Rameses" design, now featuring a 23 instead of the original 32 (for obvious reasons). 

Can't pick just one? That's cool. Tonight we're doing FREE SHIPPING on all orders of $40 or more, so grab 2 or 3 items and leave the cost of shipping to us. We got it.

We've talked about it for a while, and we continue to roll it out, but we're finally prepared to make ALL of the products in our Chapel Hill, NC store available online — our own products, and products by other companies. 

Today, we've posted a selection of shoes and hats that can be found in The Thrill City Store in Chapel Hill, including Durham-based Runaway, vegan shoe company Keep, and UNC student-owned brand Skyed Apparel

More brands and items are on the way — stay tuned!

We took a road trip to Raleigh yesterday to go and check on the world of streetwear and catch up with King Mez. We found Mez in front of the studio washing his car after having pulled an all-nighter recording (pretty commonplace in Mez's world) and, I was pleased to find out, watching "Luther," which is one of the best detective dramas on TV (if you needed more persuading than my assurance, Idris Elba plays the lead role). In any case we chilled with Mez for a bit before going to check out new streetwear store, Honor Raleigh - a dope spot, and one to keep your eyes on. Here are some shots from our roadtrip to the capital.

Did we mention that we stopped off at the Container Store on our way back to the Hill? I mean, a roadtrip wouldn"t be complete without a pit-stop at the Container Store, right?

Our friend King Mez had a busy trip to Brooklyn last month, from visiting the XXL and Rap Genius offices to spending a day as principal of an NYC public school. While there, he linked up with Kian Brown for a brief interview on music, vulnerability and more.

The Charlotte Hornets are back, and bringing the coolest color combination in the NBA with them, so you know we had to do a little something to represent the state of NC. With the Hornets unveiling their 2014-2015 uniforms this morning, we unveiled the newest member of the "Thrilluminati" family: Hugo the Hornet. 

Gold chain, black crew socks, #23 jersey and a pair of Gamma Blue 11s... Hugo has it all. Oh, and obviously we had to have him throwing up the Roc. Click on the images for enlarged views. 

Thrilluminati Rameses and Thrilluminati Hugo Tees + Tees and tanks dropping 6.27.14, stay tuned. Pre-order link coming soon.
