BOY I SWORE WRESTLING WAS REAL BACK THEN. BOB BACKLUND WAS AMERICA'S FAVORITE WRESTLER WHILE THE IRON SHIEK WASN'T. I REMEMBER WHEN THE SHIEK WOULD TAP HIS TOE,IT WAS OVER. ANOTHER CLASSIC MATCH,OH I CANT FORGET CLASSY FREDDY BLASSY!

SINCE IT'S THE HOLIDAY SEASON I HOPE YOU SUCKAS ARE INTO THE GIVING SEASON. HERES A COUPLE PAIR OF MY FAVORITE KICKS...NEW BALANCE AND AIR FORCE ONES. BOTH PAIR ARE SUPER LIMITED,AND SINCE I DONT HAVE TIME TO TRACK THEM DOWN THEY MAY NEVER MAKE IT TO MY CLOSET.THE AIR FORCE ONES ARE COLLABORATION WITH CLOT,TRANSLATION...ASIA ONLY RELEASE. THE NEW BALANCE ARE A COLLABORATION WITH A.R.C. OUT OF THE TWO,THE NEW BALANCE WILL BE SOLD HERE IN THE STATES WHICH MAKES IT AN EASIER CATCH.

WHEN YOU THINK OF THE ATLANTA CLUB SCENE,ALOT OF GREAT NIGHTS COME TO MIND. IF YOU ARE BEING HONEST YOU HAVE TO MENTION KAYA,AND IF YOU MENTION KAYA YOU HAVE TO MENTION THE DJ'S(NABS,MARS,DOC,JAYCEE,AND KEMIT). THESE ARE THE DAYS WHEN WE PARTIED TIL 4 AM...EVERYDAY OF THE WEEK...THIS IS BEFORE SERATO,BEFORE THE BULLSHIT AND DURING AN ERA WHEN THE DJ REALLY MATTERED. AS A DJ,YOU COULDNT ROCK THE SPOT UNLESS YOU COULD ROCK THE SPOT. THE DOCUMENTARY IS COMING SOON...THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES BROTHER NABS.

NIKEiD Signature Series featuring Ludacris from Freshnessmag.com on Vimeo.
ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS ABOUT SEEING YOUR LEGENDS ELEVATE TO ANOTHER LEVEL IS IT PROVES TO YOU THAT YER LEVEL OF ELEVATION IS COMING SOON. CLARK KENT BEING A TRUE SNEAKER HEAD,IS THE MISSING LINK TO NIKE'S CONNECTION TO THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY. LUDA,ALSO A PERSONAL FRIEND OF MINE IS AN INSPIRATION AS WELL...CONGRATS TO BOTH OF YOU ALL,NIKE IM GLAD YOU RECOGNIZED.

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD G UNIT MIXTAPE
Its very easy to say that no crew inside New York City has had a choke hold on the mixtape game like the G-Unit soldiers. From 50's ill remakes to Lloyd Banks sick delivery,they owned the streets with every release. I put money on it that they could do a small tour and perform nothing but joints from these tapes. I wasnt planning on posting tapes until 09,but hey what the heck.

THIS IS WHAT HIP HOP AND DJ'ING IS...SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT WILL SMITH BUT THEIR FIRST 2 ALBUMS WERE CRAZY...SONICALLY AND LYRICALLY...JEFF IS ONE OF THE ILEST ON STAGE AND TOGETHER U COULDNT STOP EM...RAPPERS U NEED TO ACT LIKE WILL SMITH AND GET U A STAGE SHOW. AND TO ALL MY DJ'S REMEMBER THAT GEMINI MIXER...THAT WAS THE FIRST ONE I EVER BOUGHT FROM ROCK AND SOUL...I THINK IT COST LIKE $90 BUCKS.

Now i know its kinda weak to post something about Jay Z,simply because eaverybody posts about him. The difference is that he has a connection to the mixtape game through my man Chubby chubb..when the book drops ill explain then,but for now enjoy the post.

Having grown up in massachussetts,my style is a lil different from most. I remember wearing Docksiders,Eastlands,and New Balance as a youngin. Lets just say i my style was heavily influenced by the suburbs. One of my favorite shoes though were New Balance's,i loved the 996's,1300's,576's,and the 574's. One a recent trip to Japan i kind od'd. One day ill show you all some of my sneaker collection,but for now ill show you these. New Balance has been coming with some ill kicks for a while now. The new school sneaker head really isnt up on them,which makes it better for the rest of us. As for new b's,as my man Ralphie used to call em,ive been a fan since day one. I actually used to hustle them in college. If you dont believe me ask Clark Kent and Biz Mark.

Well i'm not much of a car head,but every once in a while something comes out from the auto-gods that make you say hummmm. Honda has a hydrogen powered sports car in the making,from what i here its only in its prototype stages. But we all know that Honda behind it the car will actually be worth its weight in gold.

Remember when your favorite album dropped on Tuesdays? Part of your drive time ritual was to go to your local record store and cop that joint right. Well Tuesdays have long since disappeared and so has your favorite record store,for the most part. Tower records is gone,along with Earwax and Beat Street. Well its Tuesday and I'm here to remind you about two of the most important mc's of the decade...KANYE WEST & LUDACHRIS. Both,"Theater of the Mind" and "808's and Heartbreaks" drop today. Please do hip hop a favor and go cop them joints please. No bootlegging or downloading,go support the troops ya heard!
