I hate to say it but nike dunks,sbs,air, are all slowly going out of style and I dont post much about them anymore. I saw these the other day and I gotta say these are really sick! (for some reason they remind me of drake.) The new colorway of the royal sits in a mostly black upper with white and purple accents. The white blesses the laces and Nike Swoosh, while the purple provides a strong accent over the tongue and heel stripe. In addition to the color changes, Nike as also opted to switch out the patent leather for an all leather upper.

The Roots are fucking magicians and always blow my mind! They rejuvenated a musical classic by reworking Joanna Newsom’s “The Book of Right-On.” This was first heard on her 2004 debut, The Milk-Eyed Mender, on the track “Right On”. Newsom is just one of many artists featured on the new Roots album entitled, How I Got Over which is out now on CD and Vinyl LP. Check it!
Last week marked the opening of illustrator and artist Noah Butkus’ “Slippery People” exhibition. Taking place at the HVW8 gallery in Los Angeles, Butkus’ signature work combines absurd situations with a bright palette of colors. Ultimately the art projects the moods of somebody who truly doesn’t take life too seriously with some strong visuals to boot. In addition, a t-shirt in association with Stussy was also created for the event.

Amanda Lopez was born and raised in Sacramento, California under the watchful eye of her parents and paintings of La Virgen de Guadalupe. Her father lent her a camera at the age of 17, and photography soon became her savior. Amanda's latest exhibition just opened Friday, which continues her ongoing CaliLOVE project which debuted at Upper Playground, Sacramento earlier this year. Inspired by the dia de los muertos [day of the dead] celebration, Lopez's work addresses more than the concept of death. Lopez’s portraits reveal and celebrate the preciousness of life. With CaliLOVE Lopez also confronts human experience and individuality. CaliLove is said to capture the brief moment of life and death intersecting.

I love what TrustCrop did to Mr. Brainwash so called "work"! If you don't know who Mr.Brainwash is known for his involvement in a documentary regarding Banksy and his own transition from documentarian to street artist, Mr. Brainwash has become the subject of much debate on both his identity and intentions. I have a strong dislike for Mr.Brainwash as an artist. He is the kind of an atist that give art a bad name and makes it all about the bussines. The street art faction TrustoCorp went over a number of Mr. Brainwash’s works across New York’s Meatpacking district, serving the message “Locals Only, No Fakes, No Phonies”. I have always thought it was disrespectful to go over other artist work but I think its more then ok to show what this Mr.Brainwash is really all about. Speard the word. He is a phonie!
This is just one of the highlighted singles as of late in a string of impressive drops from The Roots. You’ll find this single on their upcoming album entitled, How I Got Over which is due out June 22nd and June 20th on itunes.This video is amazing and shot really well. check it

There are too many reasons to pinpoint exactly why the NBA season has come down to a single game for only the third time in the last 16 years. The Celtics and Lakers are the two greatest teams in the history of the league. Will Boston raise banner No. 18? Or will Kobe, Phil and the Lakers claim their fifth ring in 11 years? Ether way there are going to be some super angry people tonight..hope there are no riots in LA tonight.

Today marks Tupac Amaru Shakur’s birthday. He would have been 39. If you get the chance at all today, be sure to spin some of his material back and remember the good times. It is also the day that Bun B, Rick Ross, Pill and others will be celebrating his life in Atlanta, tonight. Terry Urban pieced together a little project to pay tribute.
