J. Cole Explains Why He Felt ‘A Certain Type Of Way’ When Kanye Called Him

Why Did J. Cole Stop Drinking?

KOD, or “Kidz On Drugs,” is an album that deals with the hardships of addiction. In one of the most vulnerable portions of the discussion, Cole shared what led him to set aside alcohol.

“I would have never even thought the day would’ve came where I stopped drinking, because to me it wasn’t even a big deal,” he said. “But this is when I noticed it was a big deal, because when I tried to go out that night and, like, not drink, I could feel the pull and the tug.”

Cole continued to discuss how his body was giving him clear signals that he needed to stop.

“Putting myself in these situations and when I noticed that pull and that tug,” the “ATM” rapper said. “That my body, my mind was telling me like, ‘Yo, damn, I want to have a drink.’ That’s what let me know something is there”

Kim Jones Debuts Newly Designed Air Max Collaboration

Newly crowned Dior Menswear Artistic Director, Kim Jones, hasn’t yet shown his debut collection in his new role. Many are still reeling from one of his final acts during his post at Louis Vuitton, a collaboration with Supreme that stands as one of the most influential in recent memory.

Jones, though, whether with Louis Vuitton or now with Doir, won’t stop working with Nike. Proven this week when the talented designer debuted a budding Air Max sneaker and matching apparel collection, Jones’s modern creation highlights fused mesh and leather fabrication matched alongside full-length Visible Air with “Kim Jones” written across the translucent midsole tube. An enlarged Swoosh blankets the sleek monotone grey upper while a top strap that mimics the Nike Vandal — Jones’ favorite sneaker growing up — punctuates the look.

This Kim Jones x Nike Air Max sneaker hasn’t been vindicated with specific release details. We do know that Jones’ Nike collaboration is available to some degree at Dover Street Market London. Stay tuned for more details.

Mac Miller Reportedly Arrested For DUI

Mac Miller was reportedly arrested in the San Fernando Valley for a DUI and hit and run on Thursday (May 17). According to TMZ, the Pittsburgh rapper hit a power pole in his 2016 G-Wagon and fled the scene before cops arrived.

In the past, Miller has been open about his struggles with addiction and how it informed projects like 2014′s Faces. During a 2017 interview with W Magazine, Mac discussed his sobriety and the weight of being so open with it.

“I’ve spent a good time very sober and now I’m just, like, living regularly,” Mac said at the time. “I think it’s important. I don’t believe in absolute anything, but I think not sharing that type of information, because it becomes like, ‘Oh he’s sober, oh he’s not, oh he has a beer, oh my god.’”

Miller continued to describe how he’s become more reserved when talking about his struggles.

“I just realized some things are important to just keep for yourself,” he said. “That was a learning experience. But it was important to let everyone know that I wasn’t doing fucking crazy amounts of hard drugs. That was good to get out there.”

Miller’s bail is reportedly set at $ 15,000.

Nike Air VaporMax Utility Gets Neon Sole

Nike continues to mold the Air VaporMax Utility for greener pastures by ironically adding green VaporMax tooling to an upcoming colorway.

Its utilitarian upper appears in a sleek black coat while the jolt of color at the midsole contrasts the noir base. A light pop of red colors the heel tag to punctuate this upcoming Nike Air VaporMax Utility “Neon Green” edition. Stay tuned for release details.

Cardi B Is The ‘Trap Selena’ On Jennifer Lopez’s Bilingual New ‘Dinero’

Just last month, Cardi B dropped her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, and its seemingly infinite listenability had us wondering: Which potential single had the power to become the next “Bodak Yellow”? Our writer Charles Holmes posited that “I Like It,” with its Bad Bunny and J Balvin features, “has the potential to be the ‘Despacito’ or ‘Mi Gente’ of summer 2018.”

But that was before we heard “Dinero,” Cardi’s new collab with Jennifer Lopez that dropped on Thursday (May 17).

On the new bilingual track, J.Lo maintains that money is her primary motivating force and that, in no uncertain terms, she gets it. “Me and Benjamín Franco stay at the banco / Getting checks like Nike, everywhere that I go,” Jenny opens the song before settling into its main refrain and hook: “Yo quiero, yo quiero dinero” (or “I want money).

Cardi’s presence on the track serves to remind us exactly who she is, at one point referring to herself as the “trap Selena.” And of course, she has to shout out that both her and J.Lo come from the same place: “Two bad bitches that came from the Bronx / Cardi from the pole and Jenny from the block.”

DJ Khaled is here, too, doing plenty of DJ Khaled things like announcing the names of all the performers on the track at the appropriate times. “Dinero” follows Lopez’s “El Anillo” from last month.

Check out the song above, and if you haven’t already, add it to your summer playlists. It’s nearly that time once again.

Nike SB Air Force 2 Low Returns with “Escape” Vibes

When Supreme dropped a collection of Air Force 2 Lows we should’ve been smart enough to know there was more from that silo on the way.

While 2 Pac vs. Biggie pairs may feel like a slight reach, this “Escape” referencing release gets it right. Donning the same shades from the famous pack as seen on the Air Force III, this Nike SB Air Force 2 Low release is both unexpected and awesome.

Hearty hues of brown balance out a white upper and black branding, with the best surprise coming in the SB tagging that warrants Zoom Air cushioning. Yes, please.

Pairs are available now for a reasonable $ 95 at Renarts.

Kendrick Lamar Is The Best Hype Man On Jay Rock’s Triumphant ‘Win’

TDE is currently in the midst of The Championship Tour, and they finally have their rallying cry. “Win” sees Jay Rock riding over a soaring beat produced by Vinylz and Boi-1Da. Over booming horns Rock raps, You either with me or against me, hoe / You either with me or / Win win, win, win, win,” as Kendrick Lamar delivers energetic adlibs.

“Win” is the second single from Jay Rock’s upcoming album after “King’s Dead.” In a January interview on Real 92.3, the OG member of TDE gave an update on his album’s release and the 2016 motorcycle accident that delayed it.

“The album is done. I just had a minor little setback,” Rock said. “As far as those who don’t know I was in an accident, you know? I was just healing up, and when I healed up, I just locked in the studio.”

The 90059 artist then explained that once samples are cleared, and the business side of the process is done, fans will get the project.

“It’s already done,” he continued. “It’s mixed up. It’s ready to go. It’s the business side as far as getting things cleared and things of that nature, but it’s ready to go.”

Until then it looks like Jay Rock is getting comfortable with the concept of winning. When is the ring ceremony?
