Kidz In The Hall – Sweet 16 (All My Ladies)

Posted in hip hop, Music with tags , , , on February 29, 2008 by Jarrod

 King Magazine recently commissioned Naledge of Kidz In The Hall to write sixteen bars on whatever topic that they chose. The results are quite promising that results in Naledge doing a new millennium version of Biggie’s “Just Playing (Dreams)”. Also, peep how Double-O flipped Kanye’s “Selfish” beat into making it better than the original.

Jordan Brand x LEVI’S 23/501 Pack

Posted in Clothing, Sneaker Culture with tags , on February 27, 2008 by Jarrod

Kill the rumors and stop the speculative talk, the highly anticipated Jordan x LEVI’S collaboration is almost here. On Saturday March 1st, the pack will be released at select Niketowns, LEVI’S stores, and top tier Nike accounts. The pack includes an Air Jordan I that uses elephant printed denim on the toebox and side panels. It also includes a pair of raw selvedge Levi’s 501 jeans that incorporates the same elephant print on the inside and a t-shirt. I don’t know how they’re going to pair the shoes with the right size jeans for customers so it should be interesting. It doesn’t really matter because this may be the hardest Jordan pack ever created. If you live near Philadelphia, you can get the pack at UBIQ

ALIFE Spring 08′ Footwear!!!

Posted in Sneaker Culture with tags , , , , , on February 25, 2008 by Jarrod

The international scientific community was wrong. The single source for the climate shift that is affecting our dear planet is not greenhouse gases but instead, can be found at 158 Rivington St. on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Every season the brand continues to deliver heat at unprecedented levels. Spring 08′ is no different with the Sprite Everybody Hi’s from their Soda Pack and two new styles; the Kennedy and the Chaser which both draw upon inspiration from the New Balance 574 and Clarks Wallabee respectively. If you don’t care about global warming too much, you can cop a pair here. How much more heat can our dear planet take?

The Air Jordan is most important piece of footwear since the Egytpian sandal. No more words need to be uttered about its significance not only as a technologically advanced shoe, but also as a worldwide cultural and economical phenomenon.
