Winner's Circle Life$tyle (WCLS) is a more than a brand. We are a lifestyle company that expresses our creativeness through event coordination, clothing design, music and much more. We have worked with artist such as Big Sean, Curren$y, Rich Hil, Ski Beatz, Neako etc. As a growing brand we, Lex Effects and Spocka Summa, inspire to motivate young individuals and help them realize anyone can be a winner as long as them truly believe in themselves.
Breaking out of the smallest state- Rhode Island (New England). Although this is our home town we do not have any limits. We plan on reaching the world.
We go off of our gut feeling, that will never lead you wrong. Basically just to work smart, creatively to separate yourself from the clutter. Define your own niche and be yourself. If people around you question you and what your doing in a negative way stay focused and continue to do what you believe. Be realistic about your goals and most of all be honest to yourself.
Clothing as always. Music- a collaborative project from us that we are really excited about. Hitting everyone with visuals often. Also will be open for booking for hosting shows and performing across the nation. We are also hopping to do something to give to back to less fortunate people. Such as fund raisers for a cause to bring people together.
Our main site is downforthewin.com and then hit the store link to see our clothing.
We are very easy to find, always on our twitter (@iSpocka @LexEffects) or for booking/collabs they can email us email@example.com
RONNIE FIEG QUINTIN PENDLETON
Although Drakes New Album Take Care was leaked to the internet earlier this week, it is still set to release on November 15th.
GQ sat down & interviewed Drake to talk about the True Meaning behind his new album, his career, & how he is handling his new found success.
Here’s a preview of the GQ Interview with Drake:
GQ: It seems like the world is excited.
Drake: [Huge smile] Yeah, man, I hope so.
GQ: You announced the title of this album, Take Care, with us back in December. What does it mean?
Drake: No one has actually asked me that yet. I came up with the name when I was on a bus in Birmingham, England, going to a show. “Take Care” is this thing we use in passing conversation to dismiss bullshit like, “Oh, you couldn’t make it on time? Oh, take care, take care.” We’ve always used that and then I really took so much care making this album. I knew I was going to go home and take longer than six months, I knew that I was literally going to take care of making this project and be attentive, be clear, be immersed in it. “Take Care” worked.
GQ: You seem more excited releasing Take Care than you were with Thank Me Later. Do you have any regrets with your last album?
Drake: No, I never regret. It did amazing things for my career and as a sonic composition, I’m still proud of it. It was just very weird to make an album, for sale, in four months on a tour bus. It wasn’t So Far Gone. So Far Gone was my first album, so I felt like it was unfair to me. Like damn, I just made So Far Gone. Now I have to come right back out with another piece.
GQ: So what’s different now?
Drake: I’m going to make this a moment for myself. I followed through on my vision…even the songs that are out now like “Trust Issues”and “Club Paradise,” “Free Spirit,” “Headlines,” “Make Me Proud,” “Marvins Room,” “The Motto,” I’m all very proud of. That’s an album in and of itself and I have nineteen more songs to give you on November 15th.
GQ: You said that, “Just by buying your album, you know a lot of shit about me.” So let’s break down some lyrics. “Why is this so familiar? Just met/already feel like I know the real her.”
Drake: I guess sometimes I feel like I’m laying next to the same woman over and over again. The things that they say, the place they are in their life, the concerns they have about me and my life. I feel like I deal with the same women repetitively. The ones I’m referring to in that song have all fucked the same rappers. So, yeah, that’s why I say we just met but I think I’ve already met the real her, because I’ve already met you so many times, in different shapes and forms—it all feels familiar.
