So I guess the good folk's over at The Hundreds are going to put out the remaining pieces from their past season's out in the store every Thursday until all of the goods run out. I'll swing by tomorrow, as I'm trying to pick up this Vintage Hundreds Mouse shirt. Hopefully the prices will be vintage Hundreds too?

So I got the word this weekend that one of the blog's avid readers/supporters is a HUGE Cam'ron fan... and since I've been bumpin this mixtape the last couple days, I thought I would get and lead you guys towards the free d/l of the double cd at
Cam'ron's official Myspace page...
Cam is the same ol' Killa Cam, but he has some new dudes with him like PENZ and TOM GIST... the kid Penz is kinda sick.
"I put a whole banana clip in your bathin' apes, my flow like Somolia so I scrape the plate"
"Evaculate the club when i left the hammer go, i'm shootin like earl manigoat/i'm with your b**ch and she naked like marques houston, and d'angelo"
"keep talkin', i'll put one in your head like a unicorn"
Anyway, worth keepin an eye out for him. He may be the new Juelz...

Luckily I had an exam to take Friday Afternoon, otherwise I would have been somewhere in this mess (don't be fooled, the line went around Rosewood and up Fairfax as well). I would have liked to cop some Public Label at a 50% discount, but lets be honest. First ppl started campin out at 2pm (thanksgiving mind you), which is a good 15 hours before the sale began. Ouch!

Really good article on Portfolio.com discussing the rise and fall, or rise and rise, of NIGO and Bape. As the brand has been at the crossroads for the last 4 years, has the time finally come that it needs to make a decision on its future?

Yesterday marked the five year anniversary of Jam Master Jay’s death, but the legacy he left behind continues to be alive and well in and out of the Hip-Hop community. In conjunction with the J.A.M Awards on November 29 — a special benefit concert that focuses on rap’s social responsibility (What up T.I.P!), adidas hooked up four sneakers paying homage to the legendary DJ. An Ultrastar JMJ anchors the set of four, which include three Brougham JMJ models to be released exclusively at Footaction in late November.

So Jay-Z had a listening party for his upcoming cd inspired by the Denzel Washington movie of the same name, American Gangster. Check the review outhere. After his last cd, I wasn't going to purchase anymore Hova cd's, mainly because I haven't been impressed since "the Blueprint". If the hype is correct the, the cd is sounding like it is going to be similar to the Reasonable Doubt era, and is apparently MORE soulful than The Blueprint. Damn, if that's the case...count me in.

So that's the video that almost made me want to download "The Graduation" rather than rushing out to Best Buy and coppin' it after a 12 hour work day. Like seriously, its that serious? I understand you put your heart and soul into your music/videos/everything you do, but at a certain point, you sort of have to realize "it is what it is" and keep it moving, not lose sleep over a VMA.
Child like temper tantrum cd, let's be honest: "Can't Tell Me Nothing" was the anthem. The daft punk sampling "Stronger" killed it, and dont get me started on the video. Getting the legendary Takashi Murakami to draw the artwork for you cd is ridiculous. The "battle" for the top spot with 50 cent was a marketing masterpiece. All the pieces were in place prior to the cd dropping....
And after the first listen, I gotta say, the cd lived up to the hype. Even if Kanye's list of complaints about the VMA's is almost as long as the tracklist ;)
He did come to the rescue of Britney and her, um, performance. “They exploited Britney in helping to end her career,” “When Britney was opening, near the end, I felt so bad for her. I said, ‘Man, it’s a dirty game. This game will chew you up and spit you out.’
Last kanye bit of the day (ok fine, the week)... fav song thus far is shaping up to be "Everything I Am" : "Here we go again, people talkin shit but when shit hit the fan, everything I'm not made me everything I am".

Wow...you could definitly snap necks in these vintage, deadstock Nike Air Vengeance shoes. These were originally released in 1984 as part of Nike's V series, and these are not the retro'd version that dropped recently, but part of the original drop (they're even made in the USA!) Anyway, starting bid is at $400, so bid away!

I'm not going to lie, I'm not into skating, never have been, never will....but the fact that skate culture plays a big role in the streetwear scene cannot be ignored.
That being said, I always have appreciated skateboards for the asthetic appeal of the artwork ( a skate deck makes just as good a canvas as anything else). With that, look for Redman's skate decks droppin at a skate store near you...
Props to Eskay for the

"My biggest inspiration and biggest competition is Justin Timberlake. He’s the only other person that gets an across-the-board response and respect level black radio, white radio. If Justin hadn't come out and killed the game, I can't say that my album, singles and videos would be on the same level that they're on. We push each other. I look at me and Justin like Prince and Michael Jackson in their day." - XXL

So according to Miss Info, 50 acted a fool after finding out this video leaked online, ripped a 70in plasma off the g-unit office wall, through his phone through a window, and declared he's taking a vacation from promo.
Keep in mind this 50's FIFTH video, and his album hasn't dropped yet. Straight to the Bank, Amusement Park, I get Money, Ayo Technology, and now this. WOW. Not a good look when you're album isn't droppin till Sept 11th.
*Note* Be warned that Interscope is killin' off the youtube links to the video in hopes to salvage it, so if this one dies too, just hit up youtube and search, you'll see it.
*Update* 50 gives himself an out on the battle against Kanye: “And I bet this, when Kanye West’s sales come in, he’s gonna have a 70% decrease [the second week] ’cause Def Jam is gonna buy records to keep him closer to 50 Cent,” the Queens rapper added. “So watch the first week and then watch the second week. Watch his @#* drop off the planet. We keep our angles covered before we make a decent bet.”
