Camu Tao - R.I.P

Hip-Hop loses another mc/producer. Camu was apart of the Def Jux collective and known for his rhyming and production on C. Rayz and also on the Cage release "Hell's Winter" in 2005. He had been battling lung cancer for the last year or so and passed respectfully in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. This came as a shock and tragedy all together. My thoughts and prayers out to the families of Tero "Camu Tao" Smith.

Alphanumeric - Fall 2008 Preview

This brand doesnt stop by any means...and after seeing their cut and sew stuff for the fall season is why I continue to support this cats. Ive been in the know about A# since 1997, and I remember seeing tons of adverts for them in skate magazines and whatnot and after a while they were non existant! Back to the topic at hand..Alphanumeric is a brand that has a great following and definitely came before its time. Check the preview out @ Vital Skate

Richard Kern x Mishka

Mishka and legendary photographer Richard Kern have teamed up for a series of shirts to drop this summer. If you know Kern's style then you know the risky and sexual content for this collab. Watch for them to drop within in weeks also check the other designs here

Sunshine Provacouture Fashion Show

Yo! Next Friday, I will be playing at this fine shindig in Des Moines, Iowa....oh snaps, right?!
This fashion show is to showcase some top designers flossing their new fits for the late spring/early summer jump offs. Its more than likely going to sell out, so please grab your tickets this week. The after party will have Mr. Diverse flexing his technique so basically...its going to be ill. Thanx to Ambush for bringing me through to this!

More info @ Sunshine Provacouture site.

A-Trak x Flickr

A-Trak has started a photo stream on Flickr to show us how the European shows have been going and everything else that has came along with it. Check em out here.

Roen x Medicom - Mickey Mouse Crown Figure

Another ill collab with the Japanese clothing label Roen and famous vinyl toy company Medicom. Surely these will fly off the shelves within the next week and as its told theyre available in Japan right now @ Cliff Edge for $75.

The Hundreds - Rumor T-Shirt

The Hundreds have been killing it lately with all their various shirts and hoodies, and this one is definitely one to cop in my eyes. Shit makes me think of that old 80's song..not the one Master P tried to remake about 10 years ago.

Pick it up @ Boundless NY

Sunday, May 4, 2008


Ive seen this photo floating around since last week or so and it was spotted in East Village, in New York and dubbed the "Flowing Pixels." No word on who the artist is but its definitely something you'd see in a Super Mario Bros. video game.

Kiks TYO x Size Magazine (China)

Yeah, Im a little late but Kiks Tyo had a eight page spread in one of the top Chinese magazines last month that covers fashion, sneakers and streetwear culture. Peep their past collabs with New Balance, Casio and top Japanese photographers on the site as well. Check the rest of the photos after the link jump.

New photos by the Neek @ The Hundreds site.

Supra Skytop - Tuf Shoe Preview

These are the first pictures that Ive seen of the new "Skytop Tuf" shoe from Supra.
As the story goes, I guess these kicks are pretty much the standard thing amongst the Supra and Krew skaters due to the durability and support that they have. For whatever its worth, this is a solid design for either skating or fashion sense. Shit, even Lindsay Lohan is up on game about them. Available in June at select boutiques and skate shops.
