When you’re not a cracker, nor a chip…

For Black people, the music industry seems to be taboo for them outside the hip hop segment. Essentially, Black people all up in Rock music are accepted by neither the predominately white crowd of Rock music fellows and ridiculed by fellow black associates for their taste in music and clothing. Essentially they’re like a Crisper HA! But on the real, check out this article in the New York times that addresses this issue concerning the acceptance of Blipsters (definition: a person who is black and also can be stereotyped by appearance, musical taste, and/or social scene as a hipster).

Afro Samurai soundtrack by the RZA!

So if you don’t know about Afro Samurai, well you must be sleeping! Its only the coolest damn cartoon on tv right now. Its from the brain child of Samual L. Jackson. I think its usually on Spike. When is it on? I don’t know! Check you tv guides! But today released side by side Windows Vista was the Afro Samurai soundtrack by the RZA.

BIG ASS………

Move aside DUNK!

If the Dunk is the Great Wall of China, this years helpings of Nike Air Zoom Tre SHOULD do enough damage to let everybody see past through the Dunk’s and see what good shit is kickin’ it. The minute I saw dem Safari Tre joints, I need we had ourselves a winner. Just a nice clean colorway, nothing too over the top on a shoe with a great look and shape to it. I can’t wait for this stuff to drop, along with the accompanying gear.

However, that P-rod II… let’s just hope it errr skates just as well as the first one.

Edit: C-Mings brought up a GOOD point, dem other Tre’s look like the once scrap Loon Dunk SB’s.

Air Max 90- RIP

Well it looks as though Nike has done it again. With these innovative and brilliant designs they have managed to once again murder a classic shoe. This new sample of what appears to be mutant Air Max 90 crossed with maybe lava dome¬†boots make me wanna never purchase from Nike ever again. Im sure if Tinker ever sees these he may have to poke his eyes out much like I nearly did. Nike also did not just kill a classic and timeless shoe, they had to throw in one of my favourite safari colourways cause heaven forbid they make a new colourway for it, in fears that they wont sell them without hype from previous models.Maybe¬†Nike should¬†focus on making new shoes and colourways instead of molding popular old models¬†to create nasty mutants.While im at it HOW ABOUT SOME MESH TOE BOX’s¬†.Im sorry for the rant but this is not good….not good at all.

Magical Caps

The cats over at Beautiful Society broke away from the endless sea of fitteds and finally made something innovative and original. What you see here is one hat, yes thats one hat. The first all white one is when the hat is what the hat will look like when its out of the sun and not hot.The other coloured one is when the hat has been in the sun for a few minutes.Beautiful Society will also be making tee shirts with this magic colour changing ink/print. Be on the look out for these cats cause with new materials and ideas like this im sure they will be goin big in 07.
