Kanye West Announces adidas Yeezy 3 is Releasing November 2014

Kanye West has had a pretty busy week. Last weekend, he performed at Made in America in Philadelphia and Los Angeles then  went on tour. He was in Perth, Australia for a tour stop where he told the crowd during one of his famous monologues that his adidas shoe will be releasing in November. Furthermore he went ahead called it the Yeezy 3 and also mentioned that it will be fairly widely available, so that as many of his fans as possible will have a chance to try them on or purchase a pair.

 Recall that in the past, West announced the collaboration would be out June 2014 which was soon after said to be delayed until 2015, so who knows how much weight this recent development holds. Head to 2:34 in the video below to hear him speak about the project and stay tuned for more as the story develops.

We have no idea what Kanye’s actual shoes will look like but see Simeon Georgiev’s interpolation.

“Dream Yourself to Me” – leBeet ft. Kate Faust

Kate Faust releases a new track which happens to be a feature with leBeet. Listen to it below:

“Dream Yourself to Me” is a collaboration between myself and dear friend & bandmate, Lee Clarke…a.k.a leBeet!
The song began when we were spending a weekend at his house, our rehearsal space, in Northern PA that we call “the mansion.”
We were exploring different sounds, talking about life and the search for love within the self and the search for love from others.
The lyrics took shape instantaneously, the same way that a pure “singular” vision of connection and love appears in our minds once we are willing to see it.
This song is an invitation…please listen, dance, sing along, and celebrate your own visions & dreams!

UndrCrwn “Spreewave Tee”

If you weren’t following NBA Basketball in the late 90’s, you may not get the meaning behind our latest release. The “Spreewave Tee” is an homage to one of our favorite players that had a bigger cultural impact than just the the game that he played. He fought through tough times, won fans hearts again and

Sprewell’s career came to an unexpected end in 2005 when he refused a $21-million three-year contract offer from the Timberwolves.

THE ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS QUOTED SPREWELL AS SAYING, “WHY WOULD I WANT TO HELP THEM WIN A TITLE? THEY’RE NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR ME. I’VE GOT A LOT AT RISK HERE. I’VE GOT MY FAMILY TO FEED.”

He may be badmouthed by traditionalists and deemed a badboy by the press, but we’re here to honor a man who came from tough situations fought for what he believed in and became an icon to those who know.

Here’s the commercial that was run prior to his return to the Knicks after a year long suspension. #knickstape

The renowned Jamaican scientist Dr. Henry Lowe, a leader in THC studies for medical purposes, is running the company with the University of West Indies and the University of Technology jointly funding the facility. In addition to studying the scientific benefits of marijuana, Dr. Lowe says the company will produce CBD-based medical products, which fall under legally accepted medicinal use of the ganja plant.
