Nike Air Force 1 “Glow in the Dark”

Sitting at 30 years young, the Nike Air Force 1 continues to reinvent itself. Prepared by Nike Sportswear, we see the classic basketball shoe given a slight update over the sole unit. Dark grey holds down the upper with limited interruption from the white Nike Swoosh. Tonal branding is found across the heel and tongue, while metal lace jewel sits quietly at the base of the laces. A glow in the dark outsole provides a new twist one the design, as does the speckled midsole. The Nike Air Force 1 “Glow in the Dark” is available now at Corporate.

Rumor: Supreme to Release Collection Featuring Basquiat’s Artwork

The rumor surrounding Supreme is that the venerable New York City brand is working on a collection featuring the artwork of iconic artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. According to a representative at Artestar — a brand licensing and consulting company with the Basquiat estate among its clients — Supreme has been granted the rights to use the celebrated artist’s works. An acclaimed Neo-expressionist and Primitivist painter who rose from obscurity as a graffiti artist, Basquiat’s works have been licensed out to Reebok, Valentino and Uniqlo in the past.

Mac Miller – These Dayz (Dope Awprah)

Mac Miller releaseas a new track from entitled “These DAyz” which may or may not be featured on his upcoming album Watching Movies With The Sound Off . Mac went on to say about the track:

If you listen closely, I’m singing opera in the background of this whole song. There are no limitations. Also, this speech at the end of this shit is epic and real for the world to comprehend yet. I was just on some other shit, no sleep, up making music all night and I decided to just take this song to places that songs have never been before.

Through his Twitter, Miller shared that he’d be release two tracks tonight, so stay tuned for the follow-up sometime soon. Stream/download the new tune produced by Larry Fisherman down below.

Bio:
Malcolm James McCormick (born January 19, 1992), known by his stage name Mac Miller (previously Easy Mac), is an American rapper from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is signed to Rostrum Records and released his debut album Blue Slide Park on November 8, 2011.

Before embarking on a solo career, Miller was part of rap group The Ill Spoken together with fellow Pittsburgh rapper, Beedie. The Ill Spoken released the mixtape How High in 2008. Prior to changing his name to Mac Miller, he was known as EZ Mac and released the mixtape But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy in 2007 at 15 years old. In 2009 Mac Miller released two mixtapes The Jukebox: Prelude to Class Clown and The High Life before getting signed to Rostrum Records.

In early 2010, Miller signed with Rostrum Records. Rostrum president Benjy Grinberg met Miller while recording with Wiz Khalifa at ID Labs.  Although Grinberg started giving Miller advice, he didn’t show any interest in getting involved with his career until the artist began work on the K.I.D.S. mixtape, when, as he later told HitQuarters, Grinberg “noticed a maturation in his sound and approach to his music.” By that point Miller had started attracting interest from different record companies but chose Rostrum due to its location in his hometown and association with Wiz Khalifia. K.I.D.S. was released by the label in August 2010.  The mixtape was inspired by the movie Kids. A significant breakthrough came in late 2010 when Miller embarked on his first “Incredibly Dope Tour”, selling out at every location on the tour.

Flatbush Zombies – The Hangover

Flatbush Zombies release their new track and the trio of Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick Arc Elliott take turns on “The Hangover.” The laid-back production, created by Elliott, sees verses about a few of their favorite alcoholic beverages, and you can check it out down below. The crew revealed the track through their Twitter, along with the download link which you can get here. Download their album D.R.U.G.S., from their website now.
