... rellyyyy doe, like forreal forreal ?! Nxggas is really claimin' this snap-back craze like they officially made that shxt poppin'..... hmm ! I might give you nxggas a small segment of credit for tryna retro this shxt early 90s fad. But #comeonson, Breezy, you did not bring this shxt back ... Tyga ... maybe ... Big Sean ... definitely ! No hating shxt, juss tryna be realistic.. *Ye Shrug*
... I'm just sayin', why the fxck is everyone so fxckin obsessed with this "Tupac Back" beat. I mean it is pretty hard, but FXCK.. everybody gotta hop on that shxt ?! Well, I always did wana hear Tunechi body this shxt tho, and the Sorry For The Wait Mixtape is on its fxcking way bruh.. woop woop !!!!
#nowplaying Lil Wayne - Tunechi's Back
... POW !!! Cee-lo and Wiz on the same track ... this is fxckin nutzington. Lady Killer is out right about now, so you might wanna hop on iTunes and handle that.
... always great to see some of our fore-Fathers of conscious music collaborate to make some good fxckin music. Common links up with the big homey Nas to create come illness in the lab for this "Ghetto Dreams" shxt. Appearantly, Common is back working on this new thing called The Dreamer, The Believer album ... I wonder if it's gunna release under G.O.O.D. music ?! His last album Finding Forever will always be classic in my book, hopefully he can match dat ...
... I noticed I been a lil narcoleptic on Adidas posts ( .. I mean, we are true Nike heads ), same time Adidas will forever get love from my book. Like Smoke DZA says "everytime you see me with a fresh one, Adidas Rod Laver's or some Foamposites, check him ..." nxggas really stay true to that line ! Anyways, I didn't know Adidas was really taking this skateboard line serious, but here's one of their infamous models re-modeled to fit the skaters personifications. Plus they come in some cleannnnnnn suede bruh bruh.. them Green joints is sprinkles and spice my G. Expect these early 2012 tho ...

RockSmith Tokyo summer line 2011 is here an with a crazy collaboration with Cookin' Soul ,those are the two guys in the video look out for there new mixtape dropping soon, gonna be a HOT summer make sure you get ready for it..
... talking about fond memories. I remember being about maybe 6 or 7 years old or some shxt, back in the mid-90s when mostly B.I.G. and Bad Boy was running shxt on the East Coast.. this black and white video comes on The BOX (.. y'all remember The BOX ?!) from some rapper named Jay- Z. At my age back then, I thought I was damn near 18 watching rap videos and being able to re-cite lyrics Id hear from the hottest tunes. But seeing this video was some other shxt.. it was like watching some Mobster flick shxt.. room fulla nxggas plottin', seeing his shorty's betrayal to him taking shots outta her E-Class Benzo, meanwhile he's all nonchalant knowing he's gon' set that bxtch up to get blown up... LITERALLY !!! Seeing all that shxt and being able to understand it all by the age of what I was.. mind blowing bro.. mind blowing ... what a great introduction to the Jigga man.
SN : Anyone notice how HOV jus ditched shorty when he was dodging bullets... #DonShxt !!!
... ehhhhhhhhhhhhh, I dunno fam !!! Comparisons to last years LeBron 8s, or even my all-time favorite models like the LB VII's and AZG's ( LeBron's first sneaker ) these aren't tooo much impressive, but I can't give them both thumbs down cause they definitely have potential. And I remember not really liking the South Beaches when they first dropped until I seen them on someones foot and went bananas. But these are a bit more of a true basketball sneaker, as opposed to most of his shoes being able to fit the casual lifestyle as well as the baller look. I definitely enjoy the major use of carbon-fiber on the sneaker.. thats what mostly stand out. But I'm not one to be all crazy on tech info of the sneaker, but for those who are check out SN for more information about the 9's ...
... relly doe ?! It's been a year already since their store officially opened.. Damn, nxggas had their blog this long already ?! Well Miami-based boutique, Sole Fly, will be celebrating their 1-year Anniversary this Saturday. Some of you cool hipsters and sole collectors can head over there if you not doing shxt over the weekend and possibly even win a pair of 'Ray Allen' Air Jordan 13s... you know.. the pair thats supposed to be releasing July 9th outta their store. Might wanna show your face out there...
... I don't think there's a more durable sneaker to do your day to day shxt, than a pair of Nike Air Max 95s. Plenty of you can agree that there's nothing better than a sneaker that you can literally run up and down doing your daily and not have one noticeable scuff mark... or you can toss 'em inside the washing machine for a few minutes and they come back a deadstock pair (.. yes we do that). I always rack up when I know school semester is about to start back up due to the amount of moving around I do on campus. Here's a peep at the Spring 2012 line-up for the iconic AM95 sneaker, with each pair in that edgy suede materials.. blue pair is #winning tho, I got downs on a pair of those.
... the most firest pair of Louboutin's I've seen yet, fxck all of the other colors. The all black studded pair of the "Louis" Louboutin's take that more durable and rugged format, like you could kick a couple walls and mountains with these and maybe one stud might fall off. I don't think I've ever seen a black sneaker look so confident. Whats gonna piss me off is seeing another rapper trash em out, or throw em into a crowd at the BET Awards because ".. a hundred thou on the shoe and socks ain't nothin". You can take a look and get the Pre-Order on these at the CL webstore tho...
... this guy Jeremy Scott has to be one of the most creative designers of footwear to date.. I wont say THEE most creative, but ONE OF the most. Cmonson.. really think about what I'm saying to you, what footwear designer can put a Gorilla on the tongue of a sneaker.. what designer you know adds a fxckin' tail (..literally) to the heel of a Leopard printed sneakers.. Jeremy Scott, thats who !!! Whats even wilder is the all denim pair of JS Wings you see below, those take the cake at this point. These won't be touching sotres until early next year tho, keep ya eyes and ears wide open ...
... this is what you call a real ballin' ass nxgga. Birdman is one of the last Hip-Hop moguls we have left, so it's always ill to see nxggas tossin' away paper on bullshxt for no reason.. might as well enjoy it for the rest of us who ain't got it ...
... unfortunately Miss Minaj experienced a recent loss to her cousin Nicholas from being shot outside of a club in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Funk Flex released the Nicki's track dedicated to her older cousin Nicholas Telemaque. R.I.P yute..
#np : Nicki Minaj - "We miss you"..

... as far as Nike's sneaker packs that went around for the year 2011, this might take the throne. I've been impressed by like the Nike "Foam" packs where they replaced materials from your average Nike Air Force 1 with Foam-materials, or the Nike "Hyperfuse" packs have also been pretty impressive as well.. but I enjoy this one the most simply because of the use of Wheat-Brown suede to the uppers.. and my final enjoyment is the gummy soles. Can never go wrong with the gum bottoms, the pack resembles the 'Waterproof' AF1 pack that dropped I wanna say in 03 or 04 .. some shxt like that. I guess history always has a way of repeating itself...
... you know, I was just wondering to myself whether Bron Bron was gonna do another release of the V/2 lows. Obviously, We all know through the $75 Million in sales that there's a heavy fan base towards the Nike LeBron 8 sneaker.. and worse the success of the Sprites last month, and the Solar Reds coming in a few weeks. But NOW we have something fresh on the market to get hype over, these Miami nights right here.. personally speaking, from a DON's perspective.. these might be the hottest V/2 lows to release. But then again thats just my opinion homes. Theyre on MS already, so expect the release soon ...
In this clip, LRG Films has Nas and Rae speaking about their influence on fashion, and you see exclusive footage of the two performing each others’ verses from the classic Mobb Deep track, “Eye For An Eye” from Mobb Deep’s The Infamous album in ‘95.
Prior to Jeezy’s session with Jim Jonsin at a New York studio, the Grammy award-winning producer composes a beat for the trapstar on the spot.

... talk about fxckin' progression, past year itself we've seen the Philly-native grow himself into a true lyricist in his own format. Mac Miller went from his earliest But My Mackin Ain't Easy, the How High mixtape, to K.ickin' I.ncredibly D.ope S.hxt aka K.I.D.S. ... the Best Day Ever and now we have Blue Slide Park... whatever the fxck that stands for. Lets see how this next project turns out tho ...

... I guess despite her and Joey's differences, life still gotta go on tho. KING Magazine hits miss Esther Baxter up for a nice photoshoot and article for all of us homies to beast ova. I meannn, she was one of the founding video vixens from back in the day tho... matter of fact, I think I still got the first KING Mag that she covered from back when nxggas was in High School... or maybe I left it in my locker. O well, peep the visuals for this shoot and read the article here too ...
... some more wing-tip Vans on the way. Caught some photos of these on Fresh N Good, I prefer the butter-brown and wool pair you see above.. but the style alone of the Vans Era Wingtip's is crazy, and the mix between the leather and wool make the shoe even more clean. Perfect shoes for the summer-time.. beach wear.. somethin' light.. yahmean ?!?!? These will soon be available at Vans California retailers pretty soon my friends...
... who doesn't love seeing the Acapulco bear holdin a bat with some Timbs on like he's about to go hit a home run with somebody's face lol. Acapulco Gold has some of the wickedest styles to date in caps, polo's, denims and tee-shirts. This Summer seasons line-up doesn't stray far away from their original styles and streetwear flavors with their logo prints, 5-panel caps and snap-backs, selvedge denims, dress tops and a wide range of other shxt for us vanity slaves to OD for. Everything is available at the AG Webstore right now ...
... teamwork between Adidas and Jeremy Scott has produced some of the wildest fashions as far as footwork goes. Styles like the JS Wings, JS Flames and the JS Panda Bears you see above have broadened new horizons to sneakerheads all around. I'm not too sure if I'm brave enough to rock these yet, maybe if I had the proper fit for em.. like a black and white Adi-tracksuit with the Rondo headband goin on (..or not). But I've definitely seen a few heads rock these and make me roconsider making a purchase. The black and white JS Panda's will hit retailers August 1st, but are available for pre-order right now on Cali Roots ...

Street King arrives July 12.

... I been tryna find information on these caps everywhere.. and when I say everywhere I mean EVERYFxCKINWHERE !!! Kanye's manager, Don C, is in the process of coming out with his own collaboration with Mitchell & Ness and produce the crazy snakeskin fitted-caps. Ibn posted this video on his tumblr giving a preview of the Just Don It event taking place at the RSVP gallery for the cap. Hopefully they won't be the only spots getting the caps, cause I definitely could use a few of em...
... ya boy is back !!! I mean despite all of his dog drama that he's had in the past, which I won't condone or agree with myself.. the guy is one helluva fxckin' player. He came back this 2010-11 NFL season and had highlight after highlight, even though he couldn't bring the Philadelphia Eagles back a trophy. Going from a nxgga who's had the world turn his back against him through troubled times, it's kinda good to see him re-gaining back some freedom and endorsements. Peep a little exerpt from CNBC coverage ... FULL ARTICLE HERE !!!
"Vick’s longtime agent Joel Segal told CNBC that “Michael is excited to have a long-term and strong relationship with Nike.” The deal was done by Chicago-based attorney Andrew Stroth.
Nike had been giving Vick free products since his return to the field after serving 23 months in prison, but wasn’t paying him. Financial consideration on his new contract was not disclosed.
The brand dropped him in August 2007, halting the release of his fifth signature shoe, the Air Zoom Vick V, and releasing a statement saying that cruelty to animals was “inhumane, abhorrent and unacceptable.”"
... feels like it's been a while since I've seen a new line-up by Mighty Healthy. I been fxckin' with their stylistic fashions for a minute now.. especially their Tee-prints and Caps. They been holdin' down their NYC schwagg in the streetwear industryt for a good fxckin minute. Here's their most recent lookbook for the Summer 2011, I hope everyone else enjoys their shxt as much as the Don. The collection can be viewed and purchased HERE also ....
