Rawthentix is a street culture and lifestyle driven online blog, providing readers with the latest buzz worthy news related to trends and current events for astute tastemakers and globe trekkers around the world.

Initially founded in 2005 as a Creative PR Agency, Rawthentix was strategized and masterminded by its two founding partners who were fed up with the corporate overindulgence mentality within the music, fashion retail, and media industry. For them the current lack of progression and creativity within the already saturated market has spewed countless numbers of overzealous haters claiming to be down, but systematically know nothing.

With the combined work experience and credibility of over 30 years in the art, music, fashion, & dance community, it was only a logical progression for Rawthentix to spawn. Their knowledge and dedication toward cultivating a voice for street culture is their business, but is also engrained within their personal lifestyle as well.

Our marketing campaigns include collaborative projects with Burton, Red Bull, Upper Playground, Red Bull, Nike SB, and Oakley. Media and entertainment collaboration include Milan Entertainment, MTV/VH1 Networks, 'The Art Dump' (Chocolate installation), Red Bull, Pacha NYC, Bboy Ivan (Urban Action Figure), HEF (Fx Crew), KRS One, Fab 5 Freddy, N.E.R.D, Universal/Interscope Group, Much Music (Chum City), artists Barbara Tucker, Rufio (White Lights), Ryuichi Sakamoto (Smoochy), and of course our loyal F.A.M. and Special Sauce collective.

Rawthentix is not only a movement, but a Non-Traditional entertainment and street fashion agency, focusing on marketing initiatives, through an array of promotions that include: Live Event Productions, Brand Development, and Social Networking.

Takin' it back to...GRAFFITI ROCK (Part 1-3)

Originally screened on June 29,1984 on channel WPIX NYC, Graffiti Rock was a hip hop based television program intended to air as an on-going series, but unfortunately only received one pilot episode. It's creator MICHAEL HOLMAN was the shows host, as well the manager for the New York City Breakers crew who were featured on the episode. Other notable appearances featured the shows DJ Jimmie Jaz, Rappers Kool Moe Dee & Special K of Treacherous Three, performances by Run DMC & Shannon. The graffiti artwork on the set was created by the artist "Brim". Take a closer look and you'll also find notable indie actors Vincent Gallo ("Prince Vince") & Debbie Mazar virtually unknown at the time. For those who missed out on this one time affair (or just weren't born yet), you'll be happy to know the footage is available a la DVD, or you can just sneak a peek and watch the heat below.
