‘Sneaker Shopping’ With Shoe & Microphone Fiend Joey Bada$$ (Video)

His dream shoe might be the All Day I Dream About… ya know. But you gotta dream about a possible dream collaboration between Joey Bad and ADIDAS. If you are into the shoe game heavy, that is.

Joey Bada$$ goes Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma at Alumni in Brooklyn, and talks growing up as a Jordan head and the mix of sneakers with politics.

Interesting. Joey comments on the former First Daughter from last administration rocking a Pro Era tee. Then he comments on Under Armour’s honcho stumping for the current President, Donald Trump. Kinda makes Joey Bada$$ a two-term political pundit. When it comes to apparel maybe. Maybe.

Ha! Watch and learn a bit Joey’s aspirations (non-political, basketball), choices in kicks (including a possible pick for his pops) and more.

New Balance Excellence Makers: Jay Electronica (Video)

Don’t know what the hell is going on but I’m one of the thousands of people anxiously waiting for Jay Electronica to drop his new album. Trying not to be impatient but I’m sure hoping it’s worth the wait.

This time around New Balance brings the New Orleans emcee on as a part of their Excellence Makers series as they follow him in London where he’s reportedly working on his new album….

WTF?!: People Going Crazy Over The New Air Jordans (Video)

This is both hilarious & sad all at the same time. We’re in a recession & no one cares to stand in line to fight for our rights on many issues that are directly affecting our communities or even join in on the Occupy Movement, but people are willing to go crazy over some damn sneakers. On the hilarious side of things, there are a gang of quotables from this clip that made me laugh out loud like “The Get Money Boys”, “I invest in these” (Licks sneaker), “I’m a shoe connoisseur”, & “What if yo child get ammonia”….

Rewind: ‘Just For Kicks’ Film 2005 (Video)

The relationship between Hip Hop and sneakers have been going steady for some time now. Let’s rewind on this 2005 documentary “Just for Kicks” that sheds some light on the obsession between Hip Hop and athletic shoes from ‘My Adidas’ to ‘Airforce 1’s’.

Yours Truly,
Frank Yerby


Jayforce note:

This has nothing to do with sneakers, but look at how technology has changed with these documentaries & the camera quality. That stuck out to me the most about Frank’s post besides the errors Frank made in the post that I had to correct. Just kidding Frank……but this documentary was filmed in 2005 & technology has significantly improved in just half a decade.
