nonnative x Vans Old Skool Style 36 // Release Date

Just like their collaboration with Vans last fall, Japanese clothing label, nonnative has applied the same design approach onto the Old Skool Style 36.

Each silhouette is constructed with a hairy suede upper that swaps out the traditional laces for a zip-up application instead. That being said, the laces haven’t completely disappeared, as they’ve been converted into a tassel design, while the iconic checkerboard pattern lines the formation of the leather sock-liner. Additionally, each offering incorporates leather insoles for an elegant design and next level comfort.

Kanye’s New YANDHI Project Looks A Lot Like Yeezus 2

Early Monday morning (September 17), Kanye West’s Twitter contained two very puzzling items: the word “YANDHI” (written on a Post-It note under Adam Driver’s name, suggesting the two would pair up for an upcoming Saturday Night Live episode), and an image of a bare MiniDisc without any context.

It wasn’t unlike when his 2013 album Yeezus dropped, complete with its artwork of a naked CD with a red sticker on it. Naturally, this caused people to begin speculating that Yeezus 2 was on its way. And then, the details came in — Kanye will indeed perform on SNL on September 29 (with Driver hosting), and that same day, he’ll also launch a project called YANDHI.

Kanye has also changed his social media avatars to a white screen, meaning he could be prepping the beginning of a new era. If YANDHI is indeed a full album, it would be Kanye’s third this year, after Ye, which debuted in June at Kanye’s star-studded Wyoming ranch blowout, and his Kid Cudi collaboaration, Kids See Ghosts. Two weeks ago, Kanye also dropped the new song “I Love It” with Lil Pump, complete with a music video that’s already been parodied for its ridiculousness.

But the news doesn’t stop there! Kanye also took the stage with Chance the Rapper on Monday night to confirm that yes, they are indeed making a joint album together — as they’ve been teasing for weeks now — and it’s called Good Ass Job (a title Kanye’s been teasing for years).

This is a lot to take in, so now’s might be a good time to throw on some music (maybe “Good Ass Intro” or “Ultralight Beam”) and mull it over for a while. And, you know, consider turning on notifications for Kanye’s and Chance’s tweets.

Chapter II x PUMA Suede // Release Date

PUMA teams up with Mr. Flawless as part of their Chapter II collection that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Suede. Mr. Flawless, a custom jewelry designer for Chapter II, lends his creativity and inspiration to the Suede itself, adorning the silhouette with a series of detachable metal charms and snowflake designs.

Decked out in a taffy toned suede application on the upper, the heels are each stamped with the Chapter II logo, while both brand logos appear on the tongue.

Nick Grant Tells Us How He Turned Inspiration From A Will Smith Movie Into A Song

1974′s iconic Rumble in the Jungle boxing match between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman is one of the sport’s all-time bouts. Before the pair squared off for eight rounds (ending with Ali toppling Foreman), local spectators in the crowd chanted their support for Ali, the underdog, in their native Lingala, “Ali Bomaye!” — translation: “Ali, kill him!”

This rallying cry has since become a go-to mantra in hip-hop, including for The Game in 2012, and now for South Carolina up-and-comer Nick Grant — the MTV PUSH artist for the month of September.

As he told MTV recently, he first encountered the phrase while watching Will Smith’s portrayal of the legendary boxer in 2001′s Ali. So he updated it with his own name for a song he called “Nicky Bomaye.”

“I just took that based on my position of the game and how I want to compete and contribute and always just want to be the best,” Grant told MTV. “Because that’s what hip-hop was based on from the start.”

He continued the boxing theme by calling DJ Khaled, whose trademark motivational maxims feature on the studio version of the track, the Mickey and/or Apollo Creed to his Rocky. “He’s encouraging me and talking me through it because in this time, I’m one of the guys that’s pushing that heavy and trying to put it back into the culture where people start to respect it again,” he said.

Watch Grant break down the meaning behind the song above. Then watch his full performance of “Nicky Boyame” below.

ASAP Rocky x Under Armour SRLo // Release Date

After months of teasing, the ASAP Rocky x Under Armour SRLo has an official release date.

Shot by Eddie Lee for HYPEBEAST, the “secret shoes” will release tonight in Harlem at a multi-story pop-up experience with the location yet to be disclosed. The space, like the shoes, will be inspired by ’90s rave and skate culture with exclusive merch also available.

Both all-black and black/blue colorways of the SRLo will release to the tune of 250 pairs each for $ 250 a pop. The first 500 customers in line will be granted access to the event space with presumably one-in, one-out access taking place to the party over the course of the night.

While 3M accents, HOVR technology and AWGE tagging are all present, Osiris D3 inspiration isn’t just apparent, it’s calculated. In a new interview with GQ, Rocky reveals that UA brought on original Osiris D3 rider Dave Mayhew to assist with the project. This is a tad controversial as there is a long-standing discrepancy over who actually designed the original D3 with Brian Reid claiming credit and The Hundreds backing such stance. Still, it’s cool the D3 DNA is both explained and explored.

The ASAP Rocky x Under Armour SRLo is finally releasing tonight in Harlem. Will more pairs pop up on the market later? We sure hope so. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details.

Mac Miller Fans Held a Beautiful Hometown Vigil In Blue Slide Park

Mac Miller got a touching hometown send-off on Tuesday night (September 11) at Pittsburgh’s Frick Park, where thousands of fans attended a vigil for the late rapper.

The location was chosen for its significance to Miller: His 2011 debut album was named after the park’s playground, known as Blue Slide Park, located just a couple blocks from the high school he went to. Miller spoke about the park in a 2012 interview with MTV News, saying, “No matter what happens in life, no matter where you go, where you’re off to, what happens with the park, that slide will always be blue. That will always be Blue Slide Park, no matter what.”

On Tuesday morning, Pittsburgh Public Works applied a fresh coat of blue paint on the famous slide, and fans gathered around it that evening, filling the playground with flowers, candles, artwork, and Steelers jerseys. According to local reports, a petition was even passed around to request that the name of the playground be changed to “Mac Miller Blue Slide Park.”

Miller’s grandmother Marcia Weiss was on hand at the vigil (wearing a Blue Slide Park album art sweatshirt) and thanked the crowd for giving her grandson a beautiful tribute. “Everybody, he would be so excited, he wished he was here and I wish he was here,” she said. “But he loves you all, he loves Pittsburgh and everything that you have done for him. Thank you so much for everybody being here. You were wonderful.”

Miller passed away on September 7 of a reported overdose and was pronounced dead at his home in Los Angeles. He was 26 years old. See more photos and videos from the vigil below.

Eminem’s ‘Lucky You’ Video Sends A Message To Young Rappers: He’s Watching

Since dropping his ninth album, Kamikaze, out of the blue in late August, Eminem’s been in the news a lot. Most of the headlines stem from the rapper’s ongoing beefs with everyone from Joe Budden to Machine Gun Kelly, but it appears Em is now turning the focus back on promoting his new project. After outrunning his critics in the eerie video for “Fall,” Em now finds himself stalked by copycats in the vid for the Joyner Lucas-featuring “Lucky You,” released on Thursday (September 13). (And no, they’re not the bleached Slim Shady clones from the 2000 VMAs… though that would’ve been pretty great.)

The inspiration behind the vid is pretty straightforward: Eminem inspired an entire generation of MCs, and he believes they shamelessly and deliberately copy his every move. The video takes that concept literally, as hordes of hooded, red-eyed men imitate him and Lucas as they rap on top of wrecked cars in a run-down town. Em and Lucas proceed to have some fun with it, making their imitators dab, hump the air, and hop on one foot while patting their heads. Lightheartedness aside, however, it’s clear Em is sending a message to the hip-hop world: They may be watching his every move, but he’s watching them, too.

Though Kamikaze has sparked countless debates about the return of Slim Shady, the album still sold enough to deliver the ninth No. 1 album of Eminem’s career. Maybe this was the revival fans were waiting for.

Here’s When You Can Cop the Air Jordan 1 “Pine Green”

Jordan Brand’s “Best Hand in the Game” pack was rare. It’s not often four Air Jordan 1s in original construction release on the same day. But it’s becoming slightly less rare when you consider other releases like the “Gatorade” collection.

There are always standouts with releases like these. The “Best Hand” pack was largely anchored by the “Clay Green” edition, which went on to achieve solo fame like a breakout artist from a larger collective. Given that singular fame, most whiffed on the “Clay Greens,” making the upcoming “Pine Green” pair all the more desirable.

Removed from suede paneling that gave the “Clay Green” certain distinction, all leather adorns the Air Jordan 1 “Pine Green” that’s due out on September 22. Official images have leaked ahead of the aforementioned release heightening anticipation for the Celtics-like execution.

Jordan Brand’s “Court Purple” Air Jordan 1 will release on the same day.
