  1. Sounds like a fun event! There’s another really awesome event going down tonight in Houston at Reliant Park. Toyota is putting on this event called Yaris vs Yaris. If you’re a fan of hip hop, rap, and art, then I suggest you check this one out. Just head on over to http://www.yarisversusyaris.com for more info. It’s basically an event where DJs and sneaker artists will battle it out to see who can win some sick prizes and mad respects. Also there will be performances, and special guests including Dice Raw, Bradley Carbone of Complex Magazine, Truck North, DJ Clark Kent, and Kenzo just to name a few. Check it out! I work with Toyota so I’m hookin you up with this info.
