Sekure D is responsible for the Air Jordan 5 "Minion" which draws on inspiration from the quirky characters of "Despicable Me." The base shoe, as evident by the blue and yellow tongue, was the recently released "Laney."
We stumbled across Roy Wood$ innocently enough, during a daily peruse of Soundcloud. After being impressed with his "I Got" record, which melds the lines of r'n'b and rap, we skimmed through the rest of his Soundcloud, albeit, it's not too full just yet. That's okay though, as the Toronto-raised MC is really just getting his start.

In light of last night's monster game between Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving, it's time to start thinking which young stars deserve their own sneaker line.Kyrie already had the Nike HyperRev designed with him in mind, and Lillard is signed with Adidas, but are these two in line to have their own personal line?
Every workplace has them: the ones who are always whining, needing things their way, arguing with co-workers, getting suspended, goofing off, over-reacting, and generally acting immaturely. What we call these people might vary - from "Diva" to "That Asshole in Accounting", or something more personal and demeaning - but their childish antics can liven up any work environment.
This was a big week for the 11's.
Dikembe Mutombo has been a mainstay reference for rappers since the 90s. Usually rappers are talking about how big they are, on the block, or how their money is "long like Mutombo." The NBA legend has seen a post-playing career resurgence of late as his trademark blocking prowess followed by his signature finger waving were used in a viral GEIKO commercial.
After dropping No Label 2 and Rich Nigga Timeline last year, Migos have spent the months leading up to YRN The Album sharing their music in a more haphazard, less organized fashion. Plenty of this is due to album delays (and consequently Offset's continued presence in jail), as well as the usual leaks that have plagued patrons of various Atlanta studios this year.
After the release of the Galaxy Foamposites, two brothers Thierry and Kevin Mofo, placed the elusive kicks on EBay. The first time Ebay-ers, from Quebec, were shocked to find somebody had placed a whopping $96,750 bid on the kicks.
You'd have to be hiding under a rock to not hear these words at some point over the summer: "I'm like 'hey, what's up, hello'Seen yo pretty ass soon as you came in the doorI just wanna chill, got a sack for us to rollMarried to the money, introduced her to my stoveShowed her how to whip it, now she remixin' for low"
Jay Z continually pushes to expand his business reach. Not satisfied with only being a rapper/entertainer he bought a minority share with the then New Jersey Nets. After helping the team move to Brooklyn, and being an integral part of the franchise's re-branding, he was ready to move onto his next venture, sports management.
Twizz Customs is the mastermind behind the Nike LeBron X "Ghostbuster." The unique custom features all things Ghostbuster, including; a khaki upper reminiscent of the Ghostbuster uniform, a caution taped Nike swoosh, Slimer's green remains strewn throughout, and a Ghostbuster logo at the ankle collar. What's the verdict; Cop or Not?
We're more than halfway through October, and still no word on the "Red October" Yeezy's. Even if you aren't planning on copping a pair you probably wish they'd just drop already so we could stop dwelling on them. After all, if you're that into red kicks, there's plenty of other options out there. Check out the list to see the best red color ways, and the celebs who rocked 'em.
The Nate Lowman x Converse Chuck Taylor are a 1/21, which allegedly required 10 hours of work to finish just one pair; thus, warranting the $25,000 price tag. Get real Nate! Unless they're filled with diamonds, it doesn't matter if Nate spent 10 years constructing the shoes; 25k is just slightly out of my price range.
NEW YORK – The Boston Celtics demolished the New York Knicks, 114-73, behind a game-high 23 points from Jordan Crawford at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
Over the past few months we have seen leaked images of many pairs of Jordan "Bel-Air" sneakers. These shoes of course taking inspiration from the TV show, Fresh Prince of Bel-air, where Will Smith constantly wore Jordan sneakers. Click through the slides to see all of the Bel-Air sneakers so you can plan for their releases in October.
Travi$ Scott's last mixtape, one of the most talked about of last year, as well as his nationwide tour with Young Thug, which, too, has created quite a stir, were both preludes to Rodeo, the long-awaited debut album. The 23-year-old Houston rapper/producer, mentored by Kanye West and T.I., has collaborated with, produced for, and written hits for the best in the business.
Visibility is the number one law of rap-- if they can’t see/hear/feel you, you don’t actually exist for a lot of people. But the main concern is how do you keep them interested? Tyga is one of those artists who has been cursed with a struggle between visibility and interest.
It's just been announced that Meek Mill will support Nicki on the "Pinkprint" tour. Judging by his personality, Meek is no "opening act," but for Nicki, he'll gladly make an exception. In his own words, Nicki Minaj is "da best female ever". That tweet was from three years ago, and Meek's thirst goes back even further than that. Meek first tweeted about Nicki in October of 2009.
Time heals all wounds, and in the case of NBA fans, it appears they have moved past "hating" on LeBron James for bolting Cleveland via a nationally televised event and then parading on stage in Miami before even winning anything. A recent ESPN poll shows that LeBron James is the most popular player in the NBA for the first time since 2009 (pre The Decision).
The Air Jordan "Olympic Pack" features the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 6. Both sneakers feature removable flag decals and USA colorways. Included in the pack, wooden shoe trees, white Olympic dust bags, a USA Olympic Basketball themed Nike Destroyer jacket, and a hat bearing the flag.

Kevin Hart took to instagram to display his latest pick-up. The elusive, Red October Yeezy II. Some instagrammers questioned the authenticity of the little man's Yeezy's, to which he quipped; "For my Haters…..REAL REAL REAL BITCHHHEESSSS!!! #TheyMadBecauseIgotMineSoEarly #OhYouMadCuzImStylingOnYou #LittleSwag #Connections #HowDareYou #EnoughSaid."Ya'll gon' learn today!
Hip hop and basketball have an undeniably strong cultural connection; their influence on each other is greater than any inter-music/sport relationship, and this website's existence is a testament. Of course, when two realms are so closely linked, the inclination to cross-over seems more natural, and NBA players like to think they can rap even more than rappers like to think they can ball.
