Last night’s American Music Awards gave us a look into the best of what music had to offer in 2008. Even though I don't have a Television yet, I made sure I checked his performance out on youtube. Although Kanyes album is set to release tomorrow, he showed us a glimpse of what to expect in his upcoming clothing label Pastelle. Pastelle is still under wraps but the blue/red two-tone varsity jacket worn by Kanye last night is definitely a sign of good things to come.
Some of you have never heard of DJ A-Trak but he is a guy thats behind the scenes and most recently he collab with Kanye West on his latest album with a song called Robocop which I kno someone you assholes downloaded already. (B.T.W, get 808s and Heartbreak tomorrow) Well, to celebrate he’s collab’d giving away 5 pairs of the DJ A-Trak x Nike Air Max 90 “Fool’s Gold” sneakers. Here’s how to enter:
“To participate in the contest just email your name, address (no P.O. boxes!), shoe size and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll pick 5 winners at random next week and hopefully you’ll receive these babies in time for Christmas!”
Award Tour is a brand that my homeboys put me on and I feel in love. Its where hiphop and Ivy League meet...sorta like Morehouse. : ) But Award tour is presenting their holiday collection in the form of "The Private Rebellion." The brand is dedicated to creating clothing for those who live every moment of life to its fullest potential. One glance at the antics on the Award Tour blog and it becomes clear that they follow their own brand initiatives. These products are available world wide online and through select retailers viewable on The Award Tour website.
Im not even a big AF1 fan but these are sick. I kinda retired AF1's back in 06 but I think these might have to get copped.

After disputes about the colorways for this package, we finally got a confirmation. Jordan Brand helped us out a little bit by posting the colorways on their official release dates page, but JB has been known to throw some curve balls. N.E ways, nicekicks have found photos that give what just might be the visual confirmation that we have been waiting for months. 52xie posted photos of what appears to be the Jordan 11/12 CDP displaying the Black/Red colorway of the Jordan 11 and the “Taxi” Jordan 12.
When I saw this, my first thought was Customz. I love when art x sneakers come other.....its like...Bonnie x Clyde, Peanut Butter x Jelly, Sex x KY...lol J/K. From spray paint to metalwork, Metal Man ED put together this awesome 8 foot long, 4 1/4 foot tall Air Jordan IV sculpture comprised entirely of metal. Precisely designed, the Air Jordan IV in metal features many of the shoes most iconic characteristics, from the heel tab, lace wings and side mesh to the OG representation with the “Nike Air” on the heel. This ones for Customz.
This weekend, Nigo was at Hong Kong’s Bape Store to personally sign a bunch of copies of his commemorative 15th anniversary book. It featured an exclusive multi-colored camo cover exclusive to Bape Stores, the book itself features a look back over A Bathing Ape’s history ranging from old releases to articles regarding the brand.

My girl and I saw this shoe about a week ago and it took us into this whole youtube, wikipedia mode. We both remember the Heaven's Gate Story but we were too young to understand it. The name is in reference to the San Diego based religious cult which was led by Marshall Applewhite, he was the creepy guy in all the videos and Bonnie Nettles, the 39 group members ending up committing suicide wearing black t-shirts, sweat pants and brand new black and white Nike Cortezs. The black, purple, blue and white Dunk High SB will not be dropped and have popped up on the ‘bay! The controversy surrounding the “Heaven’s Gate” Nike Dunk High SB has forced Nike to scrap the Dunk Highs which were scheduled to be this Fall. Here is the video I cant forget wen I was a kid. Heaven's gate
If you haven't heard of HUF, u need too. They have done alot of collaborations with other brands and they are starting to pop off heavy in the south, as a matter of fact, everywhere. They are one one of the best street brands out on the market. his Saturday, HUF will be dropping several new items from their Winter collection at their stores in San Fran. New delivery includes the dirtbag crew varsity jacket, the Pincord New Era 59Fifty Caps, the Plaid 5 Panel Caps and the Navajo 5 Panel Caps.
The is the best collaboration since Elton John and Eminem. First off, Coldplay is my favorite rock band, ask anybody who knows me and Jay-z is my favorite rapper...the fact that they did a song together is crazy. Ok, I kno he did songs with Chris Martin but its not the same. check this video out for all u Hov and Coldplay fans. I had to put this up. Jay-z and Coldplay- Lost

The long awaited Air Yeezy's have been confirmed to release Spring of 2009. For those who don't know, the Nike and Kanye West collaborated on a shoe together called the "Air Yeezy" and pics have been floating around the web for about a year now. We caught Kanye wear them on his GITD tour and we caught Tinker Hartfield (Jordan Brand shoe designer)with them on as well but there never was a confirmation whether these were gonna release or not unitl now. Sneaker Files has confirmed that the majority of Air Yeezy styles and colorways will be limited releases. The Air Yeezy is inspired by Kanye West’s favorite shoes, notably the Air Jordan III (3) (used for the Yeezy mid-sole makeup). The Air Yeezy is highlited with glow in the dark accents which streak through the Nike Swoosh and Jordan III inspired mid-sole.
If you haven't noticed, there have been alot of Air Jordan Is to come out this year, one of them I have copped myself, but of them all, I believe this is the most anticipated one, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High Strap. These shoes come in two different colorways; the first pair, comes in the unmistakable Black/Red colorway that David Stern and company banned from the NBA. The other pair releasing is a non-original colorway, but makes use of canvas on the black panels on the upper similar to the AJKO. Im not to Big on the strap but if I decided to cop them, the strap will have to go. This are gonna release this weekend at a retail price of $110 at Jordan retailers nationwide.

If you didn't know, Bow Wow has been putting out video blogs about his Jordan Collection which he doesnt know shit about. For example, when he posted his latest video, he called the Countdown Package 8's that just released last weekend " the O.G 8's." They ARE NOT the O.G 8s. This is the CDP 8s. Back to the point, Marcus Jordan, Michael Jordan's Son saw Bow Wow's lame ass videos and came back with his own. I mean, if ur MJ's Son, wat do u expect. Here's the video.
