... Tyler The Creator of the Odd Future Wolf Gang (OFWGKTA) released the coverwork and tracklisting for his upcoming album, Goblin, stated to release on May 20th in CD and Vinyl format for all the original DJ's out there.

Peep the tracklisting below..

.. Up top is Big Sean’s SXSW Recap, while down bottom is highlights from the best part of my Saturday last week, VIBE’s Respect The West showcase ..
... these are fxckin sexy! I'm a big fan of the Nike Air Max 1 model.. besides the AM95's and 90s, these have to be one of my favorites on the list. Nike has produced this flavorful "Honeycomb" colorway, which comes with an all yellow upper with canvas and felt materials, white mid-soles and royal blue bottoms.. Reminds me of a Honeycomb cereal box. These are available for pre-order right now on Hanon, but I'm sure these are expected for a mid-April release at Nike Sportswear retailers..
... here's one of the latest colorways for the classic Red Wing Moc-Toe Boot.. all black everything. The shoe is also designed with natural colored stitching and silver eyelets for the black lacing. Pretty tough boot.. I never knew how historical this brand was until recently. Appearantly, the shoe company has been around for well over a hundred years .. they are still one of the few companies that you can send your worn pair back to the company for them to re-construct the same shoe. Your original pair will come back in new and improved condition. I bet a lot of you wish Nike and some of your other favorite companies would do that.. I know I do. Peep their process of shoe repair below, and look out for these at you Red Wing retailers..
... here's another ill collaboration between the folks of Stussy and Daniel Cowes, who is a well known cartoonist, author and screenwriter for comics such as Eightball and Ghost World . Don't ask me how Stussy has been getting all of these people to do work with 'em to create all of these exclusive collectionsn recently. But they've been getting their job done. The Stussy x Clowes collection is available on Stussy and a few of their retailers for decent pricing as well ...
... online streetwear blogsite, Hypebeast, has gotten their own collaboration with Native company for their own version of the Fitzsimmons boot. The whole upper portion of the shoe is created out of foam injected molded EVA construction materials, giving more lightweight and comfort to your feet when you're making movements. These Hypebeast x Native boots are available now on HB's online shop for $90 pricing..
... While Freezer and Statik were at SXSW last weekend, they managed to shoot the video for a track off their Statik-Free EP. Get up on the flow, the beards are in the building ...

... some of the latest tracks from one of my new favorite rappers of this generation coming in. I've been waiting a lil' bit of time to hear some shxt shxt from homey. But Kendrick Lamar is one of the few new rappers really bringin' that real life story shxt to the game.. on some meaningful, consciousness type shxt. And being part of the 2011 XXL Freshman Class, you gotta give respect to artists like this ...

... SUPREME brands latest collaboration with the infamous skateboard magazine, THRASHER, for the Spring/Summer 2011 season which includes a few logo'd tee-shirts and hoodies. The release is stated to drop on March 24th (..which is tomorrow) online and in-store at Supreme.
... here's a lil' preview of Stussy recent collaboration with Marvel Comics. You know it's a popular trend for streetwear brands to team with animated companies and make some of the sickest collabo's. I mean if you think about it, this shxt goes back to the days of Iceberg when they used to put Looney Tunes characters on their clothes.. good times, good times. Anyways, the collection will be split up into two different releases; first release will occur on April 27, and the final release will be on May 6th this year on Stussy.com ...
Two of the worlds greatest producers were at the Colony Nightclub in Hollywood on Monday. As Swizz hyped the crowd over Dre’s banging instrumentals, the Doc briefly eulogized Nate Dogg. Too bad the clip ends before they play “that exclusive”.

... alright, this shxt is getting ridiculous, Wiz Khalifa has held the media hostage. Damn near every fxckin magazine has this guy on their cover. Here, Complex headlines Wiz and the hilarious Pineapple Express star, Danny McBride, for their smoker-face April/May issue.. which is also their 9th Anniversary issue. Peep the behind-the-scenes footage below and be sure to get the mag whenever from your local store..
This leaked awhile back with the G.O.O.D. Music duo only, but now it serves as track 18 off Snoop’s upcoming album. Keep your eyez open, Doggumentary in stores March 29.
... Funk Flex invited Pusha T to his show tonight and let him get his freestyle on and promote his latest Fear Of God mixtapes. The edited version is below ..
... so here's some updated images on JB's re-release of the "Cardinal" VII's. Initially I didn't like the first set of spyshots that I saw for em, and kinda drifted me away from purchasing a pair. But marqueesole definitely changed my outlook on these with these photo shots of the 2011 pair. Quality definitely seems up to par on the Cardinals, and I'm definitely vexed that I missed the 2006 release, and the VII's is in my top 3 favorite retro's (fighting with the III's and the IX's).. so I might have to go along with these in June.

New Times Music Editor got Sean Pajot a lil’ bit of footage of L. Boogie killin’ it on stage (and on time) at Grand Central last night. Looks like it was a memorable night, especially given that it was a last minute show. Above is her performing “Sweetest Thing”. And click below to see her perform “Turn The Lights Down Low” and “Doop Wop (That Thing).
Wiz’s major label debut sprung a leak a week early. With that said, here’s track 13 featuring his homie, Spitta. Rolling Papers lights up shelves next Tuesday (March 29th).. be sure to cop that !!!

... the day has finally arrived. I'd like to present to you another memorable mixtape to the game of hip-hop, Pusha T's Fear Of God Mixtape. I haven't even finished listening to all
of the tunes yet to judge the whole mixtape, but I don't expect any disappointment at all.Features include 50 Cent, Kanye West, Rick Ross and more.
On Saturday, Trae and Wiz shot their new video at a mansion in Austin. Guests included Bun B and Paul Wall. Here’s a quick clip from the set.
... i'm beginning to get more and more pissed at the fact that they still haven't revealed the full image of the sneaker yet. I'm kinda amped about these, due to the fact that I missed out on the last pair.. and seeing the teasers that he's already put out for us makes me even more hype about seeing how they look. The Nike SB Dunk Hi "4-20" is supposed to be dedicated to all the dedicated sneakerhead chiefers around the world. Above we see a picture of the design for the insoles. I provided pics earlier in the month of the Upper shoes materials, but thats all we got thus far for these. More information will be available as soon as I get more, so just keep on checkin...

Then again, he does represent the home of the Foamposites.. here he shows off his pair of "Pine" Foamposites which is expected to release sometime this year. No exact release date.. but Fxck !!! These are gonna sell out prolly by first day, hopefully they release enough pairs to the public for us all to purchase..
... shxt like this really makes me wish we had a larger hip-hop fan base down here in FL. We need some events and shows down here like this, people demand it. Well at least I demand that shxt lol .. #SXSW got a nxgga feelin' really jealous we wasn't out in Texas. Anyhow, peep the Kweli performance in which performs some of his revolutionary tunes and brings out Pharoah Monch. via RR
... here's a lil' ting, a lil preview of one of my favorite lyricists in the game. Pusha T of the Clipse is dropping his solo mixtape, Fear Of God, on Monday and DJ Whoo Kidd premiered a few of the radio rips over the weekend. All the tunes thus far have been #prettyfxckinmadd, but that Rozay and Ab Live tune takes the cake.. then again, they all pretty stoopid if you ask me. I'm definitely convinced it'll be a major mixtape.. via RR

... word has it that the "True Blue" Air Jordan Retro III's will release first thing in the month of June on the 4th, with the following release of the "Cardinal" Jordan Retro VII's on the 18th of June. Thats gonna be a really tough decision for all of my true Air Jordan fans out there. I mean, if you got it like that then there shouldn't be a problem, otherwise you might have to put some serious thoughts about which one you wana break out for the summertime.. decisions, decisions! I know which pairs I will be purchasing ...
