Nike Air Max 95 - Neutral Grey/Chlorine Blue


So back in my early sneaker head days (i.e. end of middle school/early high school),the Air Max 95 was far and away my favorite shoe of all time. Since then, my tastes have changed a bit and I prefer more of a sleek/slender silohouette (such as with that of the Air Max 1's), but colorways such as this DEFINITELY catch my eyes. Dropin' 2011.

Stussy x Hello Kitty - round 2

Looks like this capsule collab is part of the XXX Aniversary. I'm hoping this isn't a Japan only release like the first one, becuase I'd like to cop one of these for wifey....Unfortunately, first news leak was via Stussy Japan.

Native Shoes


So I first spotted these over at the Hundreds spot a couple days ago, and didn't pay them too much mind. Almost look like a Crocs collab with Vans? Apparently they are like "walking on a sponge". They also have models based on the Chukka and Chuck Taylors, which are my personal favorite, and are both available over at Pick Your Shoes.

Stussy x Ren and Stimpy


I didn't understand the first collaboration between Stussy and Ren and Stimpy back in June of 2009, but here we are again with a new piece that dropped today. I can see Shawn Stussy shaking his head from here.

Mammoth



So - I'll be backpacking out in beautiful Mammoth Lakes the next few days with *gasp* no internet access! I'll try to have some auto-posts set up (such as this one) to keep you from starving while I'm out - but feel free to get out and enjoy yourself as well! Fresh content promised Friday.

Kurupt - Yessir



Not my favorite track from Street Lights, but love to hear Kurupt over a beat from the legendary Pete Rock.

Nice Kicks - Footwear Faceoff


Head over to NiceKicks to vote in their Footwear Faceoff for hottest shoes in the Finals here. I think I have to give it to my man KB24 in the Nike Zoom Kobe V's.

World Champions - Los Angeles Lakers



Best post game interview of all time?
Shout out to the Hood, his Doctor, his Psychiatrist, his new single for the radio, and gives the interviewer a hug? Definitely a classic moment.

Other Laker related links:
Ron Artest in the interview room (another classic).
Video made for Lil Wayne's track, Kobe Bryant
Snoop, Ice Cube, and Artest on BIG BOY's Neighborhood the day after the big win, clip includes Artest rapping his new single
Kobe post game interview w/ shots fired at Shaq, lol.

New Music (Happy Bday Pac!)


I know its been a minute since I had a "new music" post, and I think it's only right that I go ahead and proceed to give you guys a music update on the birthday of the legendary 2Pac (who would have been 39 years young today) - so here is a sample of some of the goodness I've been playing the last few weeks.

1. TiRon - Mustard. Now, I know a lot of you fell in love with the kid after I posted his video for "Throwin' My Money, his ode to spending his last dollars on the freshest sneakers, and then flocked like feathers to dl his "Ketchup" mixtape. Please believe me when I say his skills as an MC have increased by leaps and bounds (and he's slowly finding his own sound, and coming off a little less "Kanye on College Dropout-esque"). You'll still get the same low key flow and everyday subject matter you came to expect after his first go around, but a little more polished. If you don't want to download off of our word, then preview one of my favorite tracks, Boys & Girls on YouTubehere. Free legal download here.

2. Chiddy Bang - Ok, rappin' over electronica/upbeat beats is nothing new, but this Philly duo has the style on lockdown, similar to another Oh Snaps favorite - Theophilus London (yes, that was a link to his best mixtape if you originally slept on that). Chiddy Bang first crept on to the Oh Snaps radar back in 2009 with their first mixtape - Swelly Express, which featured their song/video - The Opposite of Adults (Kids) featuring the MGMT sample. Well they recent dropped a quick 7 song mixtape, The Air Swell Express, paying homage to their overseas fans. Another mixtape that I would NOT sleep on.

3. Bruno Mars - It's Better if You Don't Understand. Our Boy Bruno Mars (aka the Hipster Nate Dogg), has a 4 song EP available on iTunes right now for a measley $3.96. If you aren't familiar with his work (sang the hook on B.O.B's hit, "Nothin on You", as well as Travie McCoy's smash, "Billionaire"), he shows his range on this short collection. Click here to check my favorite track - Count on Me. I'm looking forward to big things from Bruno Mars in the future. As an added bonus, click here to check out his promotional mixtape for free, and if you dig, go big and purchase his EP from iTunes.

4. Ratatat - Remixes Part I and Part II. Yes, this is the same indie/electronic group that Kid Cudi featured on his LP last year on my favorite track, Pursuit of Happiness. They stripped down the vocals of hits from artists such as Jay-Z, Missie, B.I.G, Bun B, Wu Tang, Beanie, and many others, and added live instruments to change it up a bit. Here is Ratatat's remix to 'Diamonds' by Kanye West to preview. These mixtapes are pretty old, but you should be able to find a link on google if you're interested.

5. YG - The Real 4Fingaz. Ok, I pretty much am just putting this out there to show the young MC from Compton some love and help promote artists from California, but you can download his free promotional mixtape at Dubcnn. Check YG rockin over a Big Pun (RIP) here. Man, some of these new cats are so young they could be Dr. Dre's grandson.

Speaking of Dre, the looooooooooong awaited single from Dr. Dre's infamous next cd, Detox, leaked today (Under Pressure, featuring Jay-Z). Check it out over at Miss Info's spot. Song is eh after a few listens, but I'll never sleep on any product that Dr. Dre actually releases, so that's that.

Nike Athletic West Maxim & Air Max One


These are FRESH! Especially with the 4th coming up. I wish they would have done reverse colorways on the two different models (Air Maxim's and AM 1's)- now I have to choose between the two! Available now at PROPER in Long Beach. Don't sleep!

The Hundreds x The Barbi Twins

Joseph Katz - Dr. Seuss



There was a lot more in Dr. Seuss repitoire aside from his published books (Green Eggs and Ham is my personal fav - first book I read, and my mommy dearest hooked up some Green Eggs and Ham for my breakfast the next day - good stuff). Anyway, check the Dr. Seuss archive more of his works of genius.

Nike Air Max 1 QS White/Varsity Royal-Neutral Grey


Clean. Classic. Timeless. Air Max I's in one of the two original colorways - royal blue/natural grey. These are a Quickstrike (QS), so of course it'll be a tough find (if you only want to pay retail of $92)...but definitely worth it. Check Nice Kicks (aka one of the few stores that got them) for more pics.
