LIVESTRONG x Mr. Cartoon

I know our boy Lance has been taking a lot of shots lately (AYO!) - but Mr. Cartoon shows some love during an interview with Nice Kicks (which you can read here) when discussing a recent mural he did for Lance and the Livestrong foundation:

"...We support LIVESTRONG and their whole movement to help people with cancer. My way to give back is that I went and donated a mural last year on the LIVESTRONG headquarters. Lance let me do it and that’s how you know Lance is a G. I was going to do some bicycle riders and kids in the community and he was like, ‘That’s cool, but that’s not you. You need to do what you want to do out on the wall.’ Like, what? I can put a chick in a LoLo? He’s like, ‘Yeah, this mural’s for the community man, it’s for them.’ So I put a clown woman with a convertible bomb and the roses. I kind of did my mural for that neighborhood."

Nike Air Max 1 - Black Kaps

As big of a Air Max 1 fan I am - I wasn't initially sold on these when I first scoped them over at Nice Kicks. Apparently - they are a pair of one-off customs created by PKZuniga, in which case I say - DAMN, nice work. More pics here.

The Hundreds - Fall 2012 (cont)

Sometimes its easier to check outfits when worn by actual humans - aside from on some sort winter wolf creature. The Hundreds released some new images from their Fall 2012 collection, this time, styled by Ben Hundreds and worn by Jay Ughh of CBG. I'm digging the set up above - even the faded hat - which is a tad 'east coast/frat boy', but not over the top enough to kill it. Check the rest of the shoot here.

Kendrick Lamar

Good kid. M.a.a.d. City. Fitting debut album title for a young rapper from Compton that has more on his mind (and in his lyrics) than gang affiliations, women, and violence, isn't it?

I've been riding with Kendrick for a couple years now - from hearing the K.Dot feature on The Game's "Big Dreams" remix, to my boy Ray-Ray sending me a link to Kendrick's MySpace page, to his classic mixtapes (Kendrick Lamar EP, Overly Dedicated, and of course Section 80), to my boy DJ Rell spinning Rigamortus for us in a club in Venice Beach, to Dr. Dre cosigns, rocking at Coachella, and being featured on projects from some of your favorite artists (Drake, Rick Ross). His time is now, there is now doubting that.

Support the rising West Coast talent and purchase his debut cd here. Oh, and check after the jump for some more featuers - including his video for Swimming Pools, Interview, pictures, and a freestyle session over at Big Boy's Neighborhood rocking over the Kurupt Callin' Out Names instrumental!

Stussy Deluxe - Winter 2012

I think I've said it before - but I really like how certain brands are branching off and growing and maturing with their audience (i.e. Stussy with Stussy Deluxe, The Hundreds with Public Label, Bathing Ape with Mr. Ape, etc). It's a smart practice to keep it fresh and continuing building upon your success in the market from which  you emerged, while also allowing your original supporters style to evolve with you. Pictured above is an image from Stussy Deluxe's latest collection for the current season, available now.

Nike Drops Lance Armstrong

When it rains, it pours. Early this morning, the same day that Lance Armstrong stepped down from the foundation which he founded, news broke from various sources that Nike, long-time endorser of Lance and his LIVESTRONG brand, were terminating their contract when Nike released the following statement:

Due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him. Nike does not condone the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs in any manner. Nike plans to continue support of the Livestrong initiatives created to unite, inspire and empower people affected by cancer.

Sure arguments could be made for how Nike treated Lance versus other athletes that went through public scandal (Tiger, A-Rod, and Kobe immediately come to mind) - but in the grand scheme of things, this situation is just different. Everyone really wanted to believe in Lance - an under-dog American hero that could overcome Cancer and win the main prize in a sport riddled with PED's  a record 7 times. But you know how that story goes - build them up, and break them down.

After the jump, check out a list of other sponsors who followed suit and also withdrew support for Lance Armstrong after Nike made their announcement.
