Everyone's 'bout to get long-weekend wild.
It's almost Memorial Day in Miami. There are way too many megaclub and nudie bar parties. But "yeah, yeah, uh," we're still gonna attend 'em all.
As Mr. Trinidad says: "Got new shoes, got new clothes ... We got bad bitches and a ton of brew."
It's work ... More >>
Pop the Dom. Buss that wallet open. Hit the ATM. Repeat.
If you've never done Memorial Day in Miami, here is a warning: It's going to get expensive. The bottles aren't cheap. And neither are the hookups. But if you wanna party (or you know, remember the men and women who died while serving in the U ... More >>
While looking through Bad Girl Ri Ri's Instagram gallery, we came to the conclusion that Def Jam's Barbadian princess should just be real and change her name to #Rijuana.
This chick don't need to wait till 4:20. She just wakes and bakes while dressed in some expensive lingerie. Or an autographed ba ... More >>

It was a rap show.
So in the tradition of rap shows, EVE was turned into a battleground state for real and/or true hip hop.
And Project Pat -- Three Six Mafia affiliate and Juicy J's real-life brother -- was the guest of honor.
Each year 'round the holidays, Crossfade readies itself to receive an influx of letters from Miami-Dade County hip-hop heads asking the one question that plagues rap fans around the country: What should we stuff our favorite rapper's stocking with this year?
Well, rather than replying to each let ... More >>
LeBron James is so #ballswag on the court, he can pop a molly and sweat it out like his first name was Trinidad.
In fact, Trinidad James and King James have a lot in common. The rapper gives it up to them "hipster bitches." The basketballer rides the Miami critical mass. They've both expressed at l ... More >>
Another year has come and gone. But what do we have to show for it?
Sure, we had a lot of fun. We discovered a lot of new, hopeful artists and said goodbye to a few favorites. But we also saw the rise of some terrible pop bullshit and we were forced to listen to some of the worst manu ... More >>
Another Art Basel Miami Beach week has come and gone.
But while we definitely got our art on and loved every awesome musical act, we couldn't stop staring at what all those fancy motherfuckers were wearing!
What can we say, we here at Crossfade are somewhat shallow. So we headed out to one of the ... More >>

Better Than: Getting Paid in Increments.
It had been a long time since Rakim rolled through our hood prior to last night's performance at The Stage.

If you mix alcohol, dancing and a queer pop collective with a fancy hotel and a pool, you're probably going to end up pissing off security.
Over the weekend, the Ssion crew set up at the Shore Club for the Pulse Miami Art Fair afterparty, delivering a set that included star cameos, cracked voices, ... More >>
Most art is silent. Even during Basel week.
That's why we here at Crossfade -- an admittedly hopeless gaggle of noise junkies -- just can't get through the week without offsetting our 12-hour days at the art fairs with 12-hour nights at Miami's hipster bars, rock dives, and downtown concert hall ... More >>
Sure, we like to pretend the week of Art Basel Miami Beach (AKA Miami Art Week) is all about the glorified flea market happening either side of the causeway. But you just want to party. You can't afford to pay $10,000 for a bike covered in Saran Wrap and called "Untitled." But you can afford the cov ... More >>
