Cam'ron took to instagram to display some of his sneaker collection. His stash goes from floor, which is marble of course, to ceiling. You can see a ton of Reebok boxes, which isn't surprising considering his recent work with Reebok. Also, there's the traditional Jordans, Air maxes, and Adidas.
Skepta is a grime MC from North London. For those who don't know, grime is a form of hip-hop that emerged from the English club scene in the early 2000s.

In an Atlanta currently populated with colorful stars such as Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug and Rome Fortune, Peewee Longway tends to slip under the radar.

We are approaching the end of the #HOTNEW14 roll out and year-end round up. Mixtapes are an essential part of the rap game and the mixtape game is stronger than ever, thanks to the accessibility the internet provides, as well as rappers giving zero fucks when it comes to industry politics, and putting out some of their best work for free. We can't shake our heads at that.

The Nike LeBron 11 "Fairfax" PE comes in both home and away colorways, but it looks as though these will be exclusive to the big-time Los Angeles based High School program. The away version features a yellow and gold build with red accents, while the home version is predominately white.
Lebron James hasn't just been the MVP with his play on the court, but has arguably been the MVP of the sneaker game this season. However, when you are "The King", you aren't judged on your regular season performance, but whether or not you bring your game in the postseason. The same standard of excellence should be used by sneakerheads when evaluating the kicks he rocks on the court.

In December we cooked up 10 Detroit Players From The Underground. The feature was meant to give you a close look at rappers hailing from the D, who may not be on your radar/the mainstream radar. It was only right we move to another Midwest location for this next batch of artists, who all count themselves Chicago natives.
This week Drake is knocked from his pedestal ever so slightly, as Big Sean's new album Dark Sky Paradise is ushered in at #1. Drake moves to #4, which still isn't a bad look, considering he's above rivals Chris Brown and Tyga. Fan of a Fan didn't move as much as you might expect two mainstream stars to sell-- with just over 50k in pure sales opening week.

This week, Chief Keef caused a stir by releasing two tracks with Andy Milonakis, a comedian who'd formerly rapped alongside RiFF RAFF and Dirt Nasty in the group Three Loco.
