March 2012

I really didn't follow the Trayvon Martin story until last night and as everyone has said, it's messed up. However, it's no secret that when you're black, in certain instances you have to be aware of your surroundings. That topic is neither here nor there. Anyway, I thought this was very commendable of the Miami Heat to acknowledge this young man. Even though it's something small, it was a way to make someone from the sneaker world aware and it caught my attention as shallow as that sounds. 

Big Up's to the Miami Heat

Shoutout to my homie Kareem at Milk Bar for putting me on to Vinny Cha$e's music. I checked a few of his visuals out over the past few months and I like how he puts his music and visuals together. He has two mixtapes out, The Plaza and Survival of the Swag. Download those when you get a chance. In the meantime watch a few of his videos.

It's Friday, I just got paid, and y'all know what we do around here on Fridays. We post IBOTW. Now, I was just on the cover of the Daily Biz mag (Shoutout to Jay Bobo for the oop) and I had three lovely women from the city on the cover with me so I said "what the heck lets take IBOTW back local shall we?". Now, this week I chose the lovely cakefien. The pics speak from themselves. In the words of the great Waka Flocka "Hair long, ass fat. Shawty mean" did I mention she can dress her ass off?

The first leak off their upcoming project diem., is Dominique Larue painting a picture over D/Will's production of dealing with the ills of society. Taken from a sample that we're all familiar with, but yet flipped in a way where Larue rides the beat perfectly while being clear with the point she is trying to make. We never let the dollar circulate.
