The Roots – 75 Bars (Black Construction)

leave a comment »

Normally I stick to the Streetwear side on the blog but I couldn’t resist posting this new video by The Roots.

They went straight Man on Fire movie style for this one; the beat, the video and the “acting” all together just make this video gritty n intense. I give Black Thought props for this, he did a good job.

Directed by Rik Cordero and starring Black Thought, ?uestlove, and Tuba Gooding Jr. (which if you listen to the beat are also the only members featured on the song)

Rising Down in stores April 29th

Neighborhood 2008 – Delta Series

leave a comment »

Japanese brand Neighborhood keeps up the image of gritty and hard black & whites with their 2008 Delta line.




While the quality and the design of NBHD products are great the price also follows suit. This fit that i posted would run you over a grand.

So if you got that guap you can go cop at Cliffedge

New Bape Hoodies – Panda

with one comment

As big of a Bape head as I am, i’ll be the 1st to admit that they do miss on some of their designs. But I’ll also say that they make some crazy stuff n set alot of trends in this game.

Wellllllll…the new panda hoody design is of the former…


i guess it was a nice effort, with the bamboo n all, but I’m not really feeling this (and usually the black versions of Bape hoodies are the best)

There’s also another floral pattern hoody this year

Last year there was the hibiscus pattern … not sure what flower this is though

Available this summer at Bape stores world wide

When it comes to working with artists and photographers Stussy has built quite an impressive catalogue. After last year’s nice set of tees with Josh Cheuse they follow up with this design by Eric Elms titled Whatever It Takes


Elms has worked with tons of brands from supreme to nike, check out his work on his site ericadorn.comThis is one of my favorite sayings (and Joe Budden songs) so I was about to cop the white but then i saw the black colorway on their site!
so now i need help …. which color do I get??

Olympic Trainer Dunk Hi – 1984

leave a comment »

Just after I showed you the Olympic Trainer Dunk Lows (2 posts down) here are some better pics of the Olympic Trainer Dunk Hi, simply named 1984 after the Summer Olympic games in LA that year.



At first the patent wood grain threw me off of this shoe but I’m definitely comming around to it now. Really nice materials used, especially the toe and side panels witht he silver stripes.

These have just dropped at Tier Zero Nike accounts in the US, so check you Recon and Alife type stores for these.

Head Porter – iPod Nano Cases

leave a comment »

I’m a big fan of Head Porter and all of the creative holders and wallets that they come out with. (Unfortunately theres nothing for regular size ipods and PDAs though so i own nothing!)

Well here are some more innovative designs for the iPod nano.


I’m really feeling the 2nd one how the iPod fits right into the hanging wallet, form & function.
