Puma mid x Undefeated

American West Coast retailer and designer Undefeated, and PUMA, have combined to add their own indominatble style to the classic PUMA Mid trainer. Perforated nubuck has been brought to life with a nice looking gold Undefeated logo sitting below the big cat, and in case you missed that dilly, the shoes are also branded with a double-sided dogtag and a subtly effective studded-collar logo. Nice. But hold the phone, theres more – two dozen pairs of a golden leather 24K model (not shown) will be available at the Tokyo and La Brea store, with another 24 split between the other three UNDFTD locations. bit of a shit being in the UK then really!..
In the meantime, the colours below will be hitting shelves in all the Undefeated locations on Saturday, February 7th as well as a few selected retailers throughout the US.. look slike its gonna have to be an ebay jobbie for us mofo’s..

real nice shoes though..

SPECKO (EMCEE) – LIVE..

Found this little Video clip on the myspace page of dope french morrocan emcee, Specko.. now sadly my knowledge of the french language is pretty limited.. so dont understand a word he’s saying (note to self, learn some french).. but as KRS-ONE said ‘a dope emcee is a dope emcee’.. hip hop transcends the language barrier.. a lovely beat also, which specko flows over effortlessly..

see for yourself, check out the vid below (click the link)

and check for more on Specko via his myspace page here

FILM SPIEL
“filmmaker Kenzo Hakuta reveals his latest production entitled City of God’s Son featuring Nas, Jay Z, Biggie Smalls, Delroy Lindo, Ghostface, Raekwon, Samuel L. Jackson, and Laurence Fishburne.

The project is a soundscape into the world of the iconic gangster.

More information about this extraordinary release can be found at the official City of God’s Son website

STRICTLYKINGS SPIEL
Although hip hop has never been about gangsterism, and has always tried to combat negativity, the inclusion of ghostface, nas and biggie in the musical line up makes for what should be a pretty impressive soundtrack..

the website also has a free download of the music.. so go check it out..
