We finished setting up the shop and are anxious to open up the doors to the new Me Phi. It was a lot of hard work but we're surrounded by a great team of people who helped get us to this point. We're confident that you guys will love the new space and hopefully we'll see you tomorrow night for the kickoff celebration! Also, the after-party will be at Suede in Old Town Scottsdale. If anyone has any questions or needs directions hit us up at

P.S. - Some people have asked where they should park for the opening. My best suggestion is the public parking lot right behind our store, between 5th and 6th street. It's on Maple Ave - the first hour is free and it's only $1.00 each additional hour. After you park just walk a block up either 5th or 6th then turn onto Mill and we're between Divaz and Cookies.

Never thought I'd live to see this day come...... the New Orleans Saints are in the motha effin Super Bowl! Below is just one of the many emails I received from friends back home before the Minnesota game:

"Our Drew, who art in New Orleans, hallowed be thy name, thy bowl will come, it will be won, in Miami, as it is in the Dome. Give us this next game, our weekly win and give us many touchdown passes, but do not let others pass against us. Lead us not into frustration, but deliver us to the Super Bowl. AMEN!"

This should be a great game with the Saints high-powered offense taking on quite possibly the best QB to ever play. We'd also like to send a special congrats to the homie and long time friend D Sharp. Do ya thing next Sunday fam!!!

I grew up during Jordan's reign in the NBA and will forever be a die-hard MJ fan. Since my loyalties are with Michael I don't usually participate in the Kobe vs. Lebron debate. They're both great but if I had to pick who's best at this time I'd have to go with 24. He's an assassin and I think you need that to reach the top level. However, Lebron's potential is limitless and when it's all said and done he could become one of the top 5 players of all time. I pull for Lebron more than Kobe but it has nothing to do with their games. Even though I've never met the guy he just seems like a cool ass dude. I wrote last year that he was at a Jay Z concert we attended, standing at the back of the stage rapping along to every song. Below is a clip of him doing the same and this time it's to Em's verse from "Forever".

*Side note - my favorite player is D Wade so please don't send angry emails if you're a Kobe or Lebron fan and took offense to what was said above*

Its Going Down Like the Catalina Wine Mixer!!

We've been laying low for the past month but on Saturday, January 30th we will be opening up the doors to our new shop in Tempe, AZ. The party jumps off at 7 PM and will include music, store specials, and a couple cool give-aways. Come kick it with us and check out the new and improved Me Phi. We'll also be having an after-party and will let you guys know more details later this week.


The store is located on Mill Ave between 5th and 6th street, on the same block as American Apparel. Hit us up at info@me-phi if you have any questions.

First, a little background information on myself and the other members of Me Phi for those who don't know us. We were raised in southern Louisiana, a beautiful place with enormous character and a unique culture that is simply amazing. It is the birthplace of Jazz. The land of Mardi Gras and gumbo. It's home to some of the kindest and most charming people you will ever meet. Louisiana, like most of the South, has a history filled with great traditions. Unfortunately our history is also stained with the mark of racism.

Our state engaged in slavery, sided with the Confederate Army in the Civil War, enforced Jim Crow laws, and segregated schools. This was the south before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement began. I won't go into all the details of what Dr. King accomplished and contributed during his time on earth. Hopefully you already know and if not I highly suggest you research the work of this extraordinary man. Read his "Letter from Birmingham Jail" and you will get a glimpse of his remarkable passion and intelligence. Thanks to Dr. King and the Civil Rights Bill, black men and women in Louisiana and the south were finally afforded the rights they deserved. Throughout my life I've spoken with many of those who were around during Dr. King's time and the love they have for him knows no bounds. They recall how they felt when he delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech in 1963. They praise his leadership, how he fought for what he knew was right even when many were telling him to "wait". Many of them participated in sit-ins, boycotts, marches, and other non-violent protests. Their stories are a constant reminder of what one can do, even when facing seemingly insurmountable odds.

Dr. King was the central figure for Civil Rights but even now our country deals with the burden of racism. The south in particular has been slow to shed it's racist mind-set. Where we're from a Grand Wizard from the KKK finished second in the 1991 election for governor. In some small southern towns there are still segregated school events such as prom and homecoming dances. An entire city filled with minorities was abandoned and people were left for dead after a devastating hurricane just a few years ago. This does not mean Dr. King and the civil rights movement failed. It simply means there is more work to be done and we have to be the ones to do it.

Racism is not as socially acceptable as it once was but it still exists. In addition to racism we must push back against all forms of hate and prejudice towards a people. Discrimination towards those with certain religious beliefs is wide spread but flat out wrong. Denying someone civil rights based on their sexual orientation is a travesty and should not be accepted. Our generation should work hard to make sure when we leave this world it will be a more accepting, loving, and understanding place.

I apologize for the lengthy post. Usually we keep it light and fun but I believe it is extremely important for us to remember people like Dr. King and his message. Here's to truly honoring his memory and hoping we make him proud.
