The Hundreds, SLB, Flight Club, Undefeated and MTV

On my recent trip to LA for the TAG Records launch party with JD and crew, MTV filmed my homeboy on a bit of a shopping spree on Fairfax and La Brea. Big thanks to Bobby, Ben and Eddie for letting us invade. Great guys all around. And in an honor even more impressive than a MTV show, my boy ended up on The Hundreds blog.

Coppola x Louis Vuitton + Annie Leibovitz


Click to Enlarge.

I love the Annie Leibovitz ads for Louis Vuitton, and I especially love the one above with Francis Ford Coppola and Sophia Coppola. Should I be ashamed that I actually like her movies more than her dad’s? I saw her at a party just chillin’ on a couch and I was blown away by her presence, her aura, her vibe – cheesy, I know – but she was 1,000,000 times more attractive in person than in any picture I have ever seen. She just blended right into the scene, but she was the only person in the room who can claim responsibility for some of my favorite movies of my 20s.

Here are others from the campaign.

West Coast Hip-Hop – Then and Now

Although I have to acknowledge artists like Del, Souls of Mischief, Heiro, and even the original Black Eyed Peas in a  post about  west coast hip-hop…. Come on… everyone really thinks about N.W.A., Eazy-E, Dre, ICE-T, Cube, Snoop, Deathrow, etc. when the West Coast conversation comes up.

We all remember this…

and

But now the West Coast and LA in particular is making a comeback in a big way with a completely different vibe and sound – one that represents an interesting blend of skate, streetwear, beach parties, and a complete dismantling of any racial boundaries.   It’s all about the party, the look, and more partying.  All glocks down fools!

Shwayze – Hollywood

Shwayze – Buzzin

Pacific Division – Women Problems

Pacific Division – F.A.T. Boys ’08

Tyga – Coconut Juice  (don’t hold his friends against him)

Nike Air Yeezy Colorway Archive

Two footwear posts in a row. It’s a sin. I know. I am really just posting this as part of my marketing research. Here is a sneaker that first made its debut 4 months ago, and has only been seen on one person ever. It is the first Nike shoe created for a non-athlete celebrity. Nike continues to drop new colorways and personally, I am anxiously awaiting to see the pay off. Will it release and remain highly exclusive? Will it be at every Foot Locker in America? What about price? Who will be the first non-Kanye and non-Kanye-entourage members to rock them – all part of Nike’s bigger hype fueling scheme that is working incredibly well.

Oh yeah… and any post about the Nike Air Yeezy** turns is blog traffic gold. Now if Lil Wayne would come out with some Nikes, I am sure my server would overload and shut down. That dude is the king of social media.

The original Air Yeezy in black from the Grammy performance

Then we saw the Air Yeezy in black with red and glowing at the G.I.T.D. Tour.

Glowing:

Then this nasty pic of an Air Yeezy colorway with some light blue accents, although this photo is so bad, it could just be an optical illusion – like that favorite tie of yours.

Update… the photo above is likely this pair, worn by Tinker Hatfield at Nike:

Then the pearl Yeezy hit the scene. Highly accessorized.

And now Khaki / Tan version of the Air Yeezy. Ignore the clown in the background (Jeremy Scott?).

All red

And check this one… Dubbed the Olympic Colorway by some unknown blogger:

Finally, the officialy release:
