The Adidas D Rose 4.5 has officially been unveiled in a wide variety of colorways. The shoes are scheduled to release in 3 of these colorways on January 30th, for $130.
As the Internet expands and social media continues to bring us all closer together, more and more artists are able to attain widespread exposure, for better or worse.
Although it is the holidays, rappers never stop putting in work. Rappers love to release shit on holidays specifically, and this year was no different. Quite a few artists came through with big records in the spirit of Xmas, but there were also some smaller gems which we're shining light on in Underrated Audio. Have a look through to see what you may have missed in the past seven days.
The all black, carbon fiber Nike Air Flightposite looks to be making a return in 2014. The sleek, all black look is a nice change of pace from the crazy and vibrant colorways we've previously seen getting retro'd.
Another stellar year for hip-hop. As the digital market continued to flourish, singles did accordingly. From Chicago trap to New York boom-bap to Houston trill, it’s all here. Not only were the year’s top singles diverse, but their marketing tactics were unique as well (take Kanye’s “New Slaves”, for example).
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Bred" will officially hit retailers on December 28th. The OG release is one of the most anticipated drops of 2013. The iconic sneaker is dear to those sneakerheads who appreciate the history of the shoe, which mimics the exact model Jordan wore.
The "Toro" Air Jordan 6 looks like it's actually going to happen. 2014 marks the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 6, so its reasonable to believe these early images will actually come to fruition.
Skeme is making a name for himself not only in the West Coast, with the release of the Cali-themed album Ingleworld on December 17th. It's been quite a few years coming for Skeme, who has released a slew of mixtapes to get his name circulating prior to the release of his studio LP.
The Nike LeBron 11 "Christmas will hit retailers tomorrow, December 26th. LeBron will be rocking these kicks today when the Heat take on the Lakers.
To help you celebrate your Christmas while maintaing the hip-hop on your playlist, we're providing you with 20 jams that have surfaced over the years, from vintage to brand new, that all contain a reference to today in some way or another.
With Christmas arriving tomorrow, we decided it was only appropriate to make our recent interview with Kid Ink Christmas-themed. Ink will no doubt be busy this holiday prepping the release of his debut album My Own Lane for the New Year (January 7th, to be exact), but nonetheless, even rappers have time to celebrate Christmas.
2013. What a year. There was a bit of the old, with veterans making major moves in front of and behind the mic, as well as keeping their relationship with law enforcement afloat. A bit of the new, with a host of MC’s coming to kicking off their rookie year as well as some leaving us all too soon.
It was only a matter of time until Wale hit the streets in his Doernbecher Foamposites. My man looks faded as hell in these pics, but as long as you got some heat, you're all good.
More than two years ago Rockie Fresh and Casey Veggies teamed up for the first time together on “Duckin N Dodgin,” which winded up on Fresh’s The Otherside Redux. The song pitted the two up and coming rappers together and although they were from different time zones, the chemistry between the two was obvious. Fast-forward to the present.
During his most recent performance in Philly, Drake hit the stage in his blackout OVO Air Jordan 12. Drake, having recently signed with Jordan Brand, is sure to be taking the stage in more of his "Stingray Pack" as the year rolls on. The blackout OVO 12s aren't anything crazy, but they do look clean and we can look forward to more Drake x Jordan collabs throughout 2014.
2013 wasn't just a good year for music, we also saw some great and memorable album covers. Artwork is an important aspect of any project, as art will likely draw a listener in off first glance and can also give you an idea of what's to come-- themes can often be represented in the art, but then again, sometimes art is drawn up for pure jokes-- both instances are seen in this countdown.
Although there's nothing quite like a dope instrumental, lyricism is arguably the most important aspect of hip-hop, despite the fact that many contemporary artists are out of touch with the the craft.
Last week we discussed the new effort from Beyonce which made waves in the internet over night, selling an astounding 80,000 units in just three hours. Apart from breaking an iTunes record, the album is well on its way to platinum, following the #newrules of her husband Jay Z.
The Air Jordan 5 "H&M x Versace Inspire" is the creation of Fuda Customs. The sneaker draws inspiration from the bomber jacket which Kanye West made popular. The Laney 5 base is coated in black, with teal leopard print accents and tropical blue and yellow hues on the mesh netting. I don't know about these. I'll leave it at that.
The 2013-14 NBA Season always promised to throw predictability to the wind, with its wide-open title chase, critical mass of looming key Free Agents, and plethora of teams actively trying to lose games.
With Christmas approaching soon, everyone is getting into the holiday spirit-- rappers included. On this week's edition of Underrated Audio you'll find two themed tracks that are perfect for the holidays, as well as two other joints that you should feel free to bump any time of the year.
Beyonce beat the system with the unexpected drop of her fifth, self-titled album, which shocked the internet, the media and music fans alike. Although B's team had recently told us to expect an album soon, (Ne-Yo almost ruined the surprise as well), no one suspected it would happen this soon.
R&B is a genre that seems to be in a constant state of flux. It's certainly very different from what it was 20 years ago - these days, many artists tend to cross over into other genres, causing debate as to what truly constitutes R&B music.
Last night Barbara Walters hosted the "10 Most Fascinating People of 2013." Did I watch it? No, of course not, I watched sports like a bro. However, it did get me thinking about the most fascinating kicks of 2013 though. fas·ci·nat·ing (adj.)- Possessing the power to charm or allure; captivating.
The "Toro" Air Jordan 6 looks like it's actually going to happen. 2014 marks the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 6, so its reasonable to believe these early images will actually come to fruition. The "Toro" 6 differs from other toro J's in that it goes with a leather upper rather than a suede construction. The completely red 6 features black laces, midsole, and an icy blue outsole.
