adidas Reveals New James Harden Logo & Teases Upcoming Signature Sneaker

James Harden has always been a figure that was uniquely marketable. From his gameplay on the hardwood to his outstanding beard, Harden has made a suitable name for himself with the Houston Rockets as their go-to guy. Officially leaving Nike to sign with adidas in October of 2015, Harden has been seen in various low-cut performance silhouettes that have incorporated Boost Technology.

This time around, the Three Stripes are planning to let Harden flap his own wings with his first official signature shoe. It’s safe to assume that it’ll be a low-cut sneaker since he’s been outfitted in such since his days with the Swoosh. Boost Technology would also be a wise assumption due to his previous wear of the plush technology on-court. adidas has teased a little bit of what to expect from The Beard’s first signature model, unveiling the lefty’s official logo in the process.

Check out the video below for the official teaser and let us know your thoughts.

Eric Andre Trolls T.I. in a Major Way for New ‘Eric Andre Show’ Episode

As we know from his recent presidential election coverage, Eric Andre is one of the world’s greatest trolls. However, T.I. might not find him as funny as some other rappers do. Appearing as a guest on the the first episode of season four of The Eric Andre Show, T.I. was subjected to the usual treatment the show gives guests, but he didn’t appear to be too thrilled about it. From a zombie attack to the arrival of "Kraft Punk," T.I. had his buttons pushed until he finally got up and leave. T.I.’s final remarks explain it all: "I’m gone. I’m out this b*tch."

Nike SB Will Bring Back Danny Supa’s Iconic Dunk

Part of the original batch of Nike SB Dunks to release way back in March of 2002, the Danny Supa-designed orange, blue and white sneaker will finally make its long-awaited return. In a Facebook Live conversation with The Ride Channel, the legendary skateboarder states that he recently signed another two-year deal with the Swoosh as they plan on rereleasing the grailed Dunk something during the Holiday 2017, although we’re unsure if it’ll be a high-top version, which is something Nike has done it the past with the likes of Futura (the Unfutura) and Diamond Supply (the Untiffany). However, if Nike opts for a straight retro of the original low-top from 2002 that will be the first time the skateboarding division has ever done so, and may mean there’s many more retros to come.

Stay tuned for more news surrounding the return of Danny Supa x Nike SB.

Nike Roshe NM Flyknit Arrives in New Dark Obsidian Colorway


Visit the original post to see all 2 images from this gallery.

With the recent unveiling of the “Pitch Black” adidas NMD, its dope black BOOST midsole has managed to pique the world’s interest. Nike has also decided to jump on the bandwagon while at its peak, this time revamping their Natural Motion midsole to join in on the back-in-black fun.

Updated with a rich blue/navy upper, the Nike Flyknit NM Roshe features a white swoosh and iridescent detailing on the tongue to give the shoe more pop. Complete with black laces, the overall look and feel of the shoe is one of balance and cohesiveness – the colors work together in harmony unlike the saying of “you can’t wear navy with black.” The shoe will also boast a huge upside in comfort due to the tooling of a Natural Motion midsole which, as its name suggests, allows for a more natural ride for your foot when walking.

Be sure to take a peek at retailers like Afew for the now-available Nike Flyknit NM Roshe “Dark Obsidian.” The shoes will retail for approximately $145.

Jared Leto Rolls With Skrillex & Rick Ross in “Purple Lamborghini” Video

After a never-ending cycle of trailers, clips and sneak-peeks, Suicide Squad is finally in theaters. And with it comes a bevy of monster singles made for the film’s soundtrack. The most badass of these by far is “Purple Lamborghini,” a track made for stunting by Skrillex and Rick Ross. And to celebrate the long-awaited release day, the duo have dropped an equally heavy-hitting music video for the track, and it stars none other than Jared Leto in character as The Joker.

Taking place in the dark side of Miami, the kind that brings to mind the neon-drenched nightmare of Spring Breakers, “Purple Lamborghini” depicts Skrillex and Ross in criminal league with The Joker. This escalates quickly into an escape by boat, but not before the gang have a great time in a strip club and driving out on the highway. This may be the first time The Joker has ever been depicted in such locales, but boy does he seem to be having a good time.

Suicide Squad is in theaters now, download the soundtrack on the iTunes store.

Watch Swizz Beatz Take A$AP Rocky on a Tour of the Bronx

Swizz Beats takes A$AP Rocky on a tour of his home hood, the Bronx, in a piece of #brandedcontent for Bacardi.

The much-hyped rapper and producer pass by Swizz’s old hangouts, some of which were cradles for the nascent hip-hop scene back in the day. Case in point would be 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, once the home of Cool Herc but also the building where Swizz’s dad lived, which hosted some hip-hop’s earliest block parties.

It’s a trip down memory lane and a hip-hop pilgrimage of sorts, with this illustrious duo musing on the subjects of music and art and the importance of the Bronx to the hip-hop narrative, the end goal of which is to drum up publicity for the Bacardi x No Commission “Art Performs” event next week, which aims to give back to the community that has given so much to art.

For more hip-hoppers spending time together, watch what happened when A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator went to Target.
