Sossee aka Gutta
The native of Boston now calls Los Angeles home has a very distant sound. Sossee aka Gutta describes her music by whatever type of mood she’s in that day, or perhaps no matter what it’s gonna be angry. “I’m a very moody person, but it’s silent. Or it just depends on what mood I’m in. So if I’m angry that day your gonna get a angry song. If I’m sad that day you’re gonna get an angry song,” explains Gutta.

LA Fashion business is Model Mafia’s fourth annual event sponsored by Bentley. Bentley would go on to drop their Bentley Tricycle which is for ages 10 months to five years old. This would prompt Model Mafia (Official Web Site) to open up their program to babies for the first time ever.

Tash Of The Alkaholiks
Tash talks about how The Alkaholiks came about and how they got their name. “I’m a tell you the truth, the name The Alkaholiks came from the legendary, King T gave us the name the Alkaholiks. We was called ESP before that.”
“We all had pistols. Drunk as hell. We weren’t into dancing and all that stuff, so we use to just hang on the walls. We use to stand by the walls like this, just hang out. Like twenty people hanging on the wall. And this girl walked up and just said, she said ya’ll not danicing. Ya’ll not doing nothing. Ya’ll just look like a bunch of alcoholics,” explains Tash.
This incident would spark an idea in King T’s head. “After we woke up and everything, King T came up to me and he said, he was like mane we gone change the name. We gone call you the Alkahliks. We was laughing, hell no, what kind name is that. He said listen to me. He said at every party, what do they have?”
Tash also speaks on the East West Coast War, Xzibit, new music and more.

This week’s DJ Don Juan’s Model Of The Week is Lia Liza. Lia has been modeling since an early age of nineteen.

And to be working with some of my favorite beauty brands is a blessing,” explains Lia Liza.
Aside from the Modeling, Lia is also a singer, which to her is her first passion. “It’s hard for people to grasp the concept that you’re able to different things. They try to put you in a box. Like there is no box, I do it all,” says Lia.
