Skillz - 2008 wRAP Up

IT's ABOUT THAT TIME! CLICK HERE to check out Skillz doing his thing, as he's done for the last 4+ years. As always, Skillz comes correct("president bush so hated, he went to Iraq, and almost got a-shoe-sinnated").

I guess now is as good a time to ever to cop his long-awaited cd, The Million Dollar Backpack. I think this was one of the most underrated cd's of the year. It's got everything you need.

See you all in 09!

Kobe x DJ AM x Mike Epps (Full Commercial)

Yeah, I know there has been

Complex 08 Style Awards

Some awards were more predictable (Nike taking best sportswear company and G-shock taking best watch) than others (The Hundreds getting breakout brand of the year and Public School getting brand of the year), but definitely worth the read. Check it out here!

Kobe Zoon IV commercial - Feat DJ AM and DayDay (Mike Epps)

Nike Zoom Kobe IV iD Video from Nice Kicks on Vimeo.

Much better than his commercial last go round (jumping over cars with a Ronny Turiaf cameo, lol). Let's see where this take us. Via Nice Kicks.

TH x Bun B

Read Bun B's write up on the shirt here. Only 150 being released, all of them out in Houston, and if you're there, you'll get it signed by the man himself. I don't mess with this shirt too heavy, but Bun B has been down with the movement since the get-go.

Customizable Ray Bans

For you creative cats out there. I've already ruined one too many pairs of all-white vans trying to get my custom kick on back in the day, so i've learned my lesson.

XMAS Shirt Part Deux

I already copped the Snowman or else Stussy would have had some intense competition this yr from the good folks at Undrcrwn.

Capone - Def Comedy Jam Stand Up

Yes, I realize I need an unusually large late pass for this 2 yr old clip of Capone doing his routine @ Def Comedy Jam, but i just caught the dvd last night during a white elephant xmas party exchange, and uh, yeah, he KILLS it with this one.

OJ Gets Murked

By Dwade... OUCH.

Didn't want to post this, cuz I kind of like OJ, and the kid is holding it down. But let's be honest, I'm not the biggest SC fan. BTW...I know the Heat aren't lighting up the boards this yr, but they are much better than last year, and I think DWades averages of 29/7/5 have something to do with it...

Nike Air Max Skyline


Yo I'm LOVING these things!!! This is not a retro/re-release/old shoe...these are brand new Nike Running shoes, taking cues and inspiration from the AM 1's (profile), 90's (lace ups, back), Air Burst, and 93 Triax. All in all, this shoe is amazing. Oh, and you know the Infared color scheme is back and vicious. IMO, this is the hottest Nike running shoe dropped for over 10 years (for kicking it. The AM 360's were mean, and got me through the SD Marathon comfortably), but from a stylistic and design point of view, nothing is touching these.

Get yours @ Finish Line today!

More Kobe IV

Good article on Kobe's upcoming low-top nike shoes over at the home of Sportscenter.

"I've been playing basketball all my life and I've worn high-tops for a lot of those games, and I've rolled my ankle plenty wearing high-tops," said Bryant, who has his ankles taped before every game. "If you come down on somebody's foot, you're going to roll your ankle and there's not a lot you can do about it. But to have a low, I feel like it gives your foot more freedom to change direction."

I know you guys are probably sick of me posting these, but I need to remember to cop them, and these posts serve as reminders. Last I heard, black and gold are droppin in Feb, white in blue are out in March.

Do I need a late pass for this one? I knew the song has been out since mid-summer, but I had no idea a video was dropped?

DJ Quik x Kurupt

This is a project I'm really looking forward to, Kurupt on the Mic, DJ Quik on the boards. I first heard about this project a couple of years ago, and it sounded like one of this instances where artists start 'sellin' dreams' and telling people what they want to hear. Since then, a lot of stories have been coming about...and now it looks like a date has been set (February- sounds like a bday present for young Hsizzle, lol).

Anyway, here is a post from Quik himself, dedicated to all the upcoming artists and producers:

Make sure that youre making music for all the right reasons. I do it to express my self and to watch people move involuntarily when my songs come on. this febuary, i have an album coming out with a new & improved Kurupt.

Every time i play it for someone new, they go from 'skeptical', to ''i gotta be cool-cant let quik know im jockin this shit-damn! i never heard anything like this-what is this shit?-how do you keep coming up with funky ass shit....aawww fuck it-this shit hot. can i have some Boomerang Vodka and Cranberry with yall niggaz-play that one again quik with the indian shit maan that one go hard...!"

Hence, i make music to take the edge off of unhappy people.

ALSO: try to avoid rapping, singing or producing songs under the influence of marijuana or alcohol. it slows your music down and makes it uninviting! wait until you have already finished your project, THEN drink &smoke. You will DEFINITELY notice a difference in your perception of the song. Remember: DO YOUR PERFORMANCE SOBER! You can look at the drugs and alcohol as dessert. surely save it for later.

And last, (but most certainly not least)
don't spite the song to save the speakers.
Make you songs sound BIGGER than the speakers you produce them on. if the speakers cant hang, you're on the right track.

Thats all for today kiddies.
Now go make music!"

Supra Cruizers

I never really hopped on the Supra bandwagon, but these are hype.

TH x Brooklyn Dom = Dom Bom

From Wordpress: What can I say about Dominick Deluca? Former VJ for MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball, his Brooklyn House/Projects legacy, slept with all your favorite celebrities and lived to tell about it, rode BMX before the bicycle was invented, most bitter/loving guy ever. His shop, Brooklyn Projects on Melrose Ave., was one of our first accounts back in 2003, and he helped us build a foundation here in L.A. back when you thought we were a garage band. Dom has become one of our closest and most loyal friends, and that is why we are introducing “DOM BOMB” as a tribute to the inimitable Mr. Deluca. The “DOM BOMB” t-shirt is offered in both black and white colorways, only 150 made, and will be available EXCLUSIVELY at Brooklyn Projects locations starting Saturday morning. 50 go to BP on Melrose, 50 out to BP in Echo Park, and the last 50 will end up in BP’s online shop.
