Lil Skies & Francia Raisa Bond Over Their Love For Roses On TRL

The TRL studio was poppin’ when Pennsylvania rapper Lil Skies and Grown-ish star Francia Raisa dropped into the building. During a fun discussion about tattoos, Francia and Skies wound up bonding over roses, which they both have tattooed on different parts of their bodies. Skies identifies with being a dark rose, which is why he incorporated it into the title of his latest mixtape, Life of a Dark Rose. As for Francia, she got a rose inked on her ankle to stick it to a disapproving ex.

Later on, Francia shared her feelings on friendship and how it’s something that is really important to her, as demonstrated by her decision to donate her kidney to her BFF Selena Gomez.

“I think the important thing about friendship that people forget is just because you give doesn’t mean you always have to receive,” she said. “Our friendship is amazing and it’s continuing to be amazing, it hasn’t changed. I think that’s what friendship is about, being there for one another but not expecting anything in return. It’s unconditional love honestly.”

After Lil Skies opened up about his mission to live a healthy life without drugs, he performed “Red Roses” with Landon Cube. The track has been played more than 29.8 million times on Spotify and continues to rack up streams. Watch the whole set in the video below and tune into TRL on weekdays at 4:00pm ET!

Nike Air Garnett // Throwback Thursday

KG. KGEE. KGEE21. KG21. The Big Ticket. Da Kid. KG PICK 5.

No matter the acronym, they’re all synonymous with the man for whom they were coined: Kevin Garnett.

Welcome to today’s Nice Kicks Throwback Thursday. Here, we continue with our NBA All-Star Game theme and pay tribute to yet another mid-90s basketball model worn on court during the annual February basketball classic: the 1998 Nike Air Garnett.

KG took the NBA by storm when, as a tall, skinny kid from Mauldin, South Carolina by way of Chicago’s Farragut Academy, he single-handedly transformed a struggling Minnesota Timberwolves basketball franchise in desperate need of a new identity and leader.

Minnesota’s mid-90s mighty underdog, KG’s career is equally extensive and noteworthy as his Nike kicksology. The 2008 NBA Champion, 2004 NBA MVP, 2008 Defensive Player of the Year, 15x NBA-All Star, 2003 NBA ASG MVP, and 2000 Olympic Gold medalist was properly laced by Nike during the earlier part of his legendary career including models such as the Air Jordan 11, Air Zoom Flight, Air Max Uptempo, Air Max Uptempo 3, Air Way Up, Jumpman Pro, Air Flight Max, Air Max Uptempo 3.0, Air Vis Zoom Uptempo, and Jumpman Team.

It wasn’t until 1998, however, when KG finally received his very own Nike signature line with the debut of the Air Garnett, his footwear of choice at the 1998 NBA All-Star Game in NYC, his All-Star Game debut. In the showcase, KG scored 12 points and handed out 2 assists in the game including a gorgeous alley-oop pass to Kobe who finished with an emphatic slam dunk, much to the delight of NBA on NBC commentators Bob Costas and Isiah Thomas.

The Air Garnett truly embodied and captured KG’s spirit, essence, and style vis-a-vis excellent aesthetics and the use of high-quality materials and construction. Featuring the words “Kevin Garnett” on the heel tab, the shoe incorporated a thick tumbled leather upper, phylon midsole, jewel technology, and visible heel with encapsulated forefoot air sole units.

Multiple colorways released including black/varsity royal-metallic silver, white/midnight navy-field green (emerald) colorway, and a rare all-black PE colorway as well. Of note, KG’s PE version featured his number 21 on the tongue in place of the word “Air.”

Unfortunately, due to legal issues pertaining to the use of his name on the heel tab, the Air Garnett has not been given the retro treatment and likely never will.

Perhaps one day, Nike will produce a quality retro and return this pair to the hardwood where it so rightfully belongs.

Remember: anything is possible, and always keep it fly as hell.

Watch Tyga & Iggy Azalea Celebrate Valentine’s Day On TRL

The TRL studio was overflowing with love today as Iggy Azalea and Tyga decided to spend their Valentine’s Day with DC Young Fly and Tamara Dhia. During the show, the rappers reflected on their love lives, shared some valuable advice to properly woo your boo, and gave updates on their upcoming projects.

Iggy also shared a sneak peak of her lyric video for her comeback single “Savior” featuring Quavo. After running through the trending topics, the rappers opened up even more about their personal lives in a heated round of I Did It (where Iggy did not hesitate to throw some serious shade at her ex Nick Young). A fan dared Iggy to read the last text message she sent and she willingly obliged… Turns out it was a text to Paris Hilton about attending her birthday party, NBD.

Last but not least, Tyga performed his latest single “Temperature” for the studio. Re-live the moment below and tune into TRL on weekdays at 4:00pm ET!

BAIT Pulls from Original Reebok DMX Run 10 Sketches for New Collaboration

Following the reveal of their collaborative Reebok Question Mid “Snake 2.0” yesterday, BAIT digs further into the brand’s archive for inspiration for their second partnering release with the brand.

Inspired by deep study of the Reebok archive, including some of the earliest sketches of the DMX Run 10, BAIT debuts DMX Run 10 and DMX Fusion iterations under the “Ideation Department” moniker. The former takes into consideration the original notations of DMX Run 10 designer Bill Marvin and superimposes them over the technical drawings of the DMX sole-unit technology, using layers of transparent TPU across the upper.

The DMX Fusion is a modern re-tooling riddled in DMX heritage. Similar superimposing design aesthetics are seen through technical drawings and layers of translucent TPU and fuse technology.

The BAIT x Reebok DMX “Ideation Department” Pack is available on BAITme.com now. The pack will also be available in Los Angeles this weekend for All-Star Weekend.

Agenda Report // Clear Weather’s Fall Forecast is Wavy with a Chance of Drip

Each season when canvassing the Agenda, Capsule and Liberty trade show floors, Clear Weather proves to be stepping their game up.

The brand built off clean lines proves wavy once again as they head into the Fall/Winter ’18 season. Previewing shoes built for everything from skate to snow, both their sneakers and boots prove familiar while their pantones have progressed.
