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.

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

Just kidding Frank……but this documentary was filmed in 2005 & technology has significantly improved in just half a decade.
