Nude Nite Orlando 2013
Nude Nite Orlando kicked off on Valentine’s Day this year with a new location and a fresh take on the interpretation of art.
Just west of Downtown Orlando, in a warehouse hidden in the shadows of City View, hand-selected artists from various parts of Florida showcased their artistic expressions of nudity and the human body. The warehouse had so many things that caught your eye, it was an exciting experience and something that definitely made Orlando climax! Throughout the night there were live performances by belly dancers and professional pole dancers in between incredible art pieces hanging on stand-alone walls. The body paint, live performances and costumes were so intriguing and the crowd were snapping pics and in awe of the details. Can’t wait for Nude Nite 2014!

Joe Budden at The Plaza Live
For 10 years Joe Budden has been pouring his heart and soul into his music. It’s so apparent when he’s performing that this is his life, he’s not rapping for the bling and bullshit, he’s rapping because it’s his therapy, his passion and what he knows best.
Tuesday, November 20th, 2012, Joe Budden took the stage at The Plaza Live in Orlando. After Orlando’s own MyVerse, Rubox, Johnny Storm and Niko Is opened the stage, setting the tone for real hip hop.

The Knight Life has definitely had a large effect on the Climax Crew and during this past week’s tailgate, we decided show the students of UCF just how much the crew Climax’s Every Day. Having an absolute BLAST with many of UCF’s greatest organizations and cool study body, the Climax Crew was also given the opportunity to check out Coca-Cola’s latest invention – The Coca Cola Freestyle Truck!
Two of our Climax Crew reps in NYC (Tru and Crystal) headed to one of the dopest street wear/fashion showcases in the country – Project NYC. Project NYC is a fashion-focused event that showcases established and up and coming brands from around the world. Upcoming trends, unique displays and a dynamic group of designers and brand reps garthered in cool industrial building in the heart of SoHo, NYC. Three floors and over 80 different brands and clothing lines, a barber shop setup and local food and juices created the perfect NYC setting for this exclusive event.

Meek Mill & Tyga at UCF Arena
This past weekend, Orlando continued down its epic lineage of shows and concerts! On Sunday, September 2, 2012, Frontline & Kheep Promotions in conjunction with WRLD Entertainment, took over the University of Central Florida and gave everyone in the surrounding areas a taste of the college life. The “Welcome Back” concert was definitely a great way to start the fall semester being that it featured MMG’s own, Meek Mill, and one of YMCMB’s many talents, Tyga!
Like always, Culture Climax makes it a point to stay up to beat with all of the events that take place in and around the Orlando area, so we were definitely on the scene for this impressive event. We even got the chance to meet a few of the opening acts as well as Meek Mill before the concert started too! If you thought listening to either of these artists through your headphones got you hype, try seeing them perform in person – you’ll see why they’re two of the hottest out! Peep the clip of the interview Meek did right before he tore down the UCF arena and a link to the pictures by Richie B. below!

El-P & Killer Mike Live at The Beacham
As a Floridian, I’m all too familiar with the calm that sets in before storm, and on Friday I witnessed the antithesis to this theory with Orlando being the recipient of the Killer Mike & El-P show that was authentic and naturally manifested as the sound of thunder that seemed to resonate throughout The Beacham. These two critically acclaimed artists poured beautiful maelstrom of social consciousness and crafted deliverance over the sounds cross fading through the sound system.
Orlando aLive August 27, 2012

Big K.R.I.T. live at The Beacham
Who said Southern hip hop is wack? Not when Big K.R.I.T. is in the game. Known as the prince of the underground this Mississippi native is bringing back that southern hip hop vibe you felt while listening to Outkast, Bubba Sparxxx or Goodie Mob. (Full recap here)
Nerdapalooza Music Festival
The word “nerd” can mean a lot of things, and not necessarily a negative connotation. This holds true for the Nerdapalooza Music Festival which swept through Orlando August 3-5, 2012. Taking over both The Beacham and The Social all weekend, this festival showcased and glorified the world of nerds in the best way possible by incorporating unique bands, art, comic books, video games all while encouraging fun event attire. And of course we sent some lucky Climax Contest winners to check out the festivities.
Richie, one of the Climax Crew photographers stopped by Sunday to catch performances from YTcracker, No More Kings, Mega Ran and The NESkimos.
