The homie from around the way, Malkovich, stays doin it large when it comes to the homegrown Los Angeles hip-hop. Remember?? Well he's serving up a fresh one.

On top of this, he's officially kicking off his role TOMORROW as Ayatollah Presley by simultaneously curating a buzz worthy art show, shooting a new video (for above single, "Wipeout"), and playing host to an open bar equipped (open bar dude!) party for young visionaries and luminaries of the greater Los Angeles area. And you can be invited.

From his Facebook: 
Saturday night's release party is also a video shoot for "Wipeout" produced by ABCDEFG aka Chuck Chilla... I'll get you drunk AND famous. For free. R&R Gallery, 929 E. 2nd St., downtown LA.
Peep the vid footy...

What's that expression? "If we don't learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it.." Something like that.

The exhibit involved is quite a relevant (in terms of subject matter, media, & overall coolness) collection of photographs from Iran taken in the period just before the Iranian Revolution of 1979. Its an amazing glimpse into life prior to the turmoil (which was not made much easier by the U.S.) that was the overthrow of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. 

Prizes will be awarded to the best Ayatollah Presley look alike (this is apparently true, see below) and admission to the event is free as long as you are rocking some ill deadstock 1979 hi-tops to commemorate (this is not true, its just free anyway).
