Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
One of the most popular shoes of our generation, the Air Max 90, is getting the new Flywire makeover — making it waaay lighter, especially with the addition of the Free sole. With a tentative release set for early next month at select Nike Sportswear locations, it will most likely be a good while before we see the new 90 getting some crazy colorways splashed on it like we’re used to seeing with the classic.
As you all know, we do a lot of posts featuring one of my favorite models. Well considering I have a thing for blondes, this one just stole my heart. Anyways, emotions aside, this is the Spring/Summer of ’09 lookbook from the brand I’m King. A lot of dope stuff coming out, they have a bunch more stuff you can check after the jump.

HIP HOP NEWS @ DEFSOUNDS.COM Well since I love money, and most of you probably do too, I figured I’d let you get a peep at Pimp C’s new track entitled Let’s Talk Money. Chorus samples T-Pain on Buy U A Drank, pretty tight, kind of overdone at times but still a tight track. Let me know what you think.
“My bubbalicious bubble gum and somethin somethin… my lipgloss. My lipgloss.” Isn’t that a song? The crew will probably make me edit this post if it’s not a song, but I swear there’s some song by some chick talkin bout her lipgloss and bubble gum. Well regardless, this lamp is way cooler than that song. You can cop it here for a hefty sum. [via retrotogo]
Would the Sneakhype industry even exist without collabs? The answer is: no. Just the other day, we showed you a collab between Supra and some frikkin bar-b-q sauce. What’s next? Fila x Advanced Auto Parts x Oreo Cookies. So here’s yet another one. Jordan and a 20 year old Spike Lee movie. Release set for July 09.
A Sneakhype G-shock? Nah,but it’s one of the dopest G-shocks I’ve seen in a grip. This Casio G-Shock in Green/Resin color is on sale now at OutNumber for $95. The G-shock would look fresh with some Clark Kents and/or some Air Maxes. Fresh to death. [dailydrop]
Aright… I don’t wanna hear any shit from anyone about the whackass tag above. You try making one using a laptop mouse. You can make your own and send us your stuff. The book is 80 full bleed pages of blank walls for you to take your pens to before you take it to the streets. This is perfect for all the wannabe graffiti artists out there… such as myself. I think it would be a nice coffee table book. It’s only $11.53 at Amazon. Take a closer look at the book here:
I’ve been wanting a pair of Velcro kicks ever since I got my 21 month old son some Velcro Etnies not too long ago. Side note: his 21st birthday was Wednesday… got pretttttty crazy. Kid weighs 30 pounds and drank me other the table. My head still hurts and when I close my eyes, all I see is a swarm of strippers. Well, now he and I can rock matching kicks with these Blazer Low AC’s from Nike. Gotta love the black and gold colorway too. The only place I know to find them is Rock Paper Scissors. [hypebeast]
Months ago I posted on Lance Stephenson, the heavily recruited HS player from New York City. Lance aka Born Ready aka the No. 1 in the Class of 2009 by the Hoop Scoop and No. 9 by Rivals has a lot of hype and for good reason. The senior at the powerhouse Lincoln High-School in Brooklyn was originally supposed to announce his school on Saturday but has decided to wait till April 1st at the Mcdonald’s All-American game in Miami. Sources close to Stephenson have said Maryland is no longer in the running and that it’s in between Kansas and St. Johns. C’mon St. Johns or Kansas? Is Kansas going lose another big name recruit this year? Nah man we defending Natty Champs. This is what needs to happen so everybody is happy. . . St John’s needs to fire Norm Roberts(they’re no good anyway) so Bill Self can rehire him back as an assistant at Kansas(he was an assistant under Bill Self for many years) Genius or what? Who is Lance Stephenson? I bet you Lawrence is about to find out very soon. Check out the video above featuring Fat Joe and Baron Davis talking about the hype behind Stephenson. P.S. he got that cover of Bounce magazine as a sophomore. Believe… More →
