We spent two months in Nepal but it didn’t take more than a couple days to notice so many women of all ages performing insanely difficult hard labor, as their male counterparts stood by and supervised. These women actually carry loads their same size. To us, its as if they harbor the strength of superheros.
On our last day we wanted to highlight and honor the girls and women, who are undoubtedly second class citizens without many rights or respect, in the only way we could – through art.When they are young they are trained to carry massive loads on their backs with a strap around their head. Sometimes they carry loads bigger than themselvs. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in Asia and the women are very oppressed. A quick look into the country, and you will see that the women are the major force keeping this place going. During our stay in Nepal, we often saw groups of women carrying huge loads on their backs, accompainied by a man walking with his hands free. When the women become old they not only continue to carry loads making them look like superheros, they also smoke cigarettes cooler than John Wayne!

“We’ll be stage diving and shit, so hopefully I won’t break my knee or neck, I don’t want to die. Ok, If I could choose to die I’d rather die on stage then somewhere else…” Rapper Arif told 2famous.TV, as we discussed being a local superstar, what festivals like HOVE mean to Norwegian artists and what we should expect from his show tonight.
– The kids went mental!
Some of the artists at the Hove festival OWNED the audience, and Bastille was definitely one of the highlights. With complete crowd control they moved thousands of Norwegian teenagers to synchronized madness. It was one of those experiences that will live for ever on hundreds of Instagram accounts. (Most of the kids here says that they don’t remember the festival from day to day). [more]
HOVE goes hardcore when L.A. rapper hits the stage
Earl Sweatshirt, who hails from my hometown adjacent city of Los Angeles (well, as you’ll see in the video, even if L.A. is the easiest point of reference on the international scene, if you grew up in the ‘burbs, never tell people who are actually from L.A. that you’re from there, because they will call your Orange County ass out so fast), shook the AMFI stage with some hard-...

As the 2famous crew sat on the beach, contemplating life and looking out onto the horizon, distant tribal beats were calling our names. We had to get to where ever that music was coming from.
