An ode to the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement,” Don’s newest iteration of his hybrid style highlights tumbled black leather alongside cement print prominently placed just above the midsole. White Swoosh branding at the medial siding, of course, doesn’t appear on the famed Air Jordan 3 but it does provide distinction to Don’s pair.

The Don C x Jordan Legacy 312 “Black Cement” released today in-store at select Foot Locker locations.

Nicki Minaj Speaks On Her ‘Mortifying And Humiliating’ Fight With Cardi B

“This is gonna be a legendary fucking show,” Nicki Minaj said at the jump of Queen Radio on Monday afternoon (September 10), before letting out an unbridled cackle.

And thus began the eighth — and most hotly anticipated — episode of Queen Radio, which came just days after Nicki got into a heated scuffle with Cardi B at a New York Fashion Week party. For those who weren’t following the drama over the weekend, here’s what you need to know:Tthe Harpers Bazaar ICONS bash on September 7 apparently ended with Cardi trying to fight Nicki and throwing a shoe at her. The “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker promptly addressed the altercation on Instagram, claiming that Nicki made comments about Cardi’s baby, Kulture: “When you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f*ckin off!!” she wrote.

Nicki, for her part, kept quiet about the incident… until Monday’s Queen Radio, that is.

“So let me just say this,” Nicki said on the episode. “The other night I was a part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch of upper-echelon people. The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion, I will never forget. I was mortified.”

Responding to Cardi’s allegations that Nicki commented about Kulture, the Queen rapper said that she had “no clue” where the “horrendous accusations” came from. She insisted, “I would never discuss anyone’s child. And it’s so sad for someone to pin that on me because I’m the bad guy and they knew people would believe them. I just wanna let the world know that Onika Tanya Minaj has never and will never speak ill of anyone’s child. I am not a clown. That’s clown shit.”

Nicki further said of Cardi, “she has built her career off of sympathy and payola,” and went on to accuse her of having other women attacked because of their alleged relationships with her husband, Offset. Nicki said, “You just had the biggest blessing of your life with a child, and in two weeks you have attacked three women? One at fashion week? And left looking the way you left looking so that people could point their fingers at our culture and our community and laugh at us some more?”

She continued, “Get this woman some help! This woman is at the best stage in her career, and she’s out here throwing bottles and throwing shoes? Who the fuck is gonna give her a fucking intervention?”

All drama aside, however, Nicki insisted she’s in “such a good place, mentally and spiritually.” Moreover, she appears to be turning her attention back to her art, revealing on the show that the high-fashion “Barbie Dreams” video will be dropping today. Yet another treat for Barbz.

Dragon Ball Z x adidas Yung 1 // Closer Look

It has been quite some time since we first heard about the collaboration between adidas Originals and Dragon Ball Z. Being one of the biggest collaboration for adidas this year, this collection will feature several Three Stripe sneakers. The newly released but old school-inspired adidas Yung 1 is one of them.

Recently, Py_Rates on Twitter shared a group of official images of the Dragon Ball Z x adidas Yung 1.

Let us know what you think on social and keep it locked for official release details.




Nicki Minaj Has Turned Your Favorite Rappers Into Puppets In ‘Barbie Dreams’ Video

The summer of Nicki Minaj continues. Fresh off a contentious weekend with Cardi B — one that apparently culminated in Cardi throwing a shoe at her — Nicki took to her Queen Radio show yesterday to both address the incident and reveal that a video for “Barbie Dreams” was about to drop.

Then the “Barbie Dreams” video did drop. But who knew it would feature some of the biggest rappers of the 2000s rendered in puppet form?

It makes sense, in a way: Nicki spends the song deconstructing why everyone from Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Drake, her own ex-fiancé Meek Mill, Quavo, Rae Sremmurd, and more either can or cannot get with her. (Spoiler: None can.) Weezy, DJ Khaled, Tekashi69, and more get turned into puppets as Nicki raps the song in a series of staggering wig and costume changes.

The “Barbie Dreams” clip was directed by storied auteur Hype Williams. Right when the beat changes for Nicki to deliver her fierce last verse, the puppets wisely all disappear, leaving the rapper alone at the center of her own creation.

This new video comes just a few days after Nicki popped up in the visual for the alternate version of K-pop group BTS’s “Idol,” rocking similarly colorful and striking hair choices.

If you’re keeping track at home, this one marks two puppet-centric rap videos in two weeks, if you count Kanye and Lil Pump’s surreal fantasy “I Love It” as an at least puppet-adjacent visual.

Check out “Barbie Dreams” above, and make sure you tune into the next episode of Queen Radio. They seem to just keep getting wilder.

Donald Glover and adidas Announce New Creative Partnership

Donald Glover, known in many circles as Childish Gambino, is equal parts one of the best dressed and most charismatic personalities today. A multi-hyphenate that truly embodies the term, Glover continues to broaden his scope with the announcement of a new adidas creative partnership.

Adidas adds Glover to a long list of creatives that includes Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Alexander Wang. However, Glover represents something completely unique for the group as an actor, producer, and a television writer. They’re among the things that make this “creative partnership” something more than what’s already in existence in the sneaker space. In large part, it seems like the only reason Glover agreed to it.

“I believe it’s important not to feel like ideas are bound by specific guidelines and adidas Originals has given me the opportunity to create on my own terms. I’m looking forward to seeing what that leads to.”

Like Atlanta, Glover’s Emmy winning television show that recently finished its triumphant second season, his adidas partnership is expected to reflect a foundational aesthetic and a truly original thought. That much can be assumed by the partnership announcement, seen through an animated clip by Ivan Dixon who also produced Glover’s “Feels Like Summer” video/short film.

The partnership is said to feature sneakers, apparel, and “creative projects.”

Childish Gambino Pays Tribute To Mac Miller At His Live Show: ‘He Just Loved Music’

Mac Miller’s untimely death at 26 last week has ushered in a torrent of support, love, and memorializing from his peers in the music world and beyond. Notable moments came from his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande, who posted a striking photo of Mac over the weekend, as well as fellow rappers like Chance, Kyle, Wiz Khalifa, Post Malone, and more.

At a tour stop in Chicago, as The Fader points out, Childish Gambino offered his take on Miller’s death as well, pausing the show for a heartfelt musing on how the two complemented each other through the years. As the fan-captured video below shows, Gambino began with a simple declaration: “I’m a very sensitive person… but this Mac Miller shit got me fucked up.”

“He was so nice. Y’all don’t know, like, he was the sweetest guy,” he continued. “A lot of critics were like, ‘Yo, this corny-ass white dude,’ just like they’re like, ‘Yo, this corny-ass black dude.’ And we used to talk, and this kid, he just loved music.

“We should be allowed to be sad about that. Like, my heart was broken. And I feel good about being sad because it tells me that he was special, that I had a special moment.”

Gambino used Miller’s rise, which was concurrent with his own, as a reminder that people don’t have to be beholden to the narratives and expectations and definitions that other people place on them. “We’re all way too complex to be a narrative,” he concluded, before telling Miller he loves him and dedicating his song “Riot” to him.

Check out Gambino’s sweet tribute in the clip above.

Inside the Design of the Nike LeBron 16 “Fresh Bred”

Following the release and subsequent sell out of Harlem Fashion Row’s Nike LeBron 16 collaboration this morning, the women’s focused pair quickly set to tone for what will surely be among the most popular sneakers of this year and next.

James’ 16th signature Nike sneaker is one of great standards. And, by proxy, one that will historically represent change. Now a Los Angeles Laker, James is finally part of a sporting franchise with a history as rich as his own. The Nike LeBron 16 joins the two in matrimony.

The very-first colorway outside of the HFR creation — masterfully set into motion by Brandice Henderson-Daniel and her design team —  is the Michael Jordan and Chicago Bulls-esque “Fresh Bred” colorway. A visual representation of Black+Red, James latest shoe, designed by his long-term Nike counterpart, Jason Petrie, thrives on the strength of BattleKnit 2.0.

First introduced on the LeBron 15, this knit fabrication is fit for the rigors of battle yet with the elegance of the materials traditionally used. “The knit team at Nike are geniuses,” affirms Petrie. “I don’t use that term lightly. They are mathematical artists and have created a new knit for the 16 that is strong enough to contain LeBron and successfully reduces any layers in the overall build that could slow him down.”

Given James’ closeness to his signature collection, many of the designs highlight specifications unique to his size, build, and on-court performance. The height of the LeBron 16 is noticeably different. It’s formed with a lower collar for James to move more freely. James, looking to add more speed to his game in his 16th season, felt it necessary.

“The first thing we wanted to do was get a little lower in the cut of the shoe,” James confessed. “I wanted to get a little faster, ride a little bit closer to the court and be a little bit more dynamic.”

Cushioning in the LeBron 15 was a revelation for James. He took to the refined Air Max system. Petrie makes sure to focus on that for its successor. “LeBron liked the cushioning so much last year that we just focused on refining it,” says Petrie. “For this addition, we removed the tendril that connected the forefoot to the under-toe bag, and instead included an outrigger to create some additional support to complement the lower height.”

LeBron’s 16th NBA season will be one of the most watched in his Hall of Fame career. In part, so will the budding Nike LeBron 16. But there’s very little if anything to critique where the shoe is concerned. James and Petrie make sure.

The Nike LeBron 16 “Fresh Bred” will be available on September 20 on Nike.com.

Watch Kanye West And Lil Pump Basically Become Lego People In ‘I Love It’ Video

It’s been a big week for Kanye West. After tweeting an apology to Drake for letting their relationship sour, he served as the creative director for the inaugural Pornhub Awards Thursday night (September 6).

In this role, ‘Ye apparently assisted with the particular design of the trophies for the ceremony, and NSFW merch bearing the likenesses of night’s winners is currently available for purchase at the Yeezy online store. But Kanye didn’t stop there; he also dropped a brand-new song with Lil Pump called “I Love It,” the video for which is an absolute trip.

The song itself only spans about two minutes, but the accompanying visual (directed by Kanye and Amanda Adelson) squeezes every moment of lunacy from those 130 seconds. It doesn’t amount to much more than Kanye and Pump warped and shrunk into what might be best described as Lego block people, waddling along and delivering the song’s hook: “You’re such a fucking ho / I love it.” But that’s plenty.

Kanye and Pump rock comically overlarge footwear; Kaney’s is an exaggerated version of the sandals he was ridiculed for wearing to 2 Chainz’s wedding in late August. Comedian Adele Givens gets a featured credit here, too, for a bit of her standup that bookends the song.

It’s notable that apart from a verse that’s mostly Kanye repeating, “I’m a sick fuck, I like a quick fuck,” his contributions to the song come from winking ad-libs, including one particularly knowing “scoop!” halfway through the song. The whole thing is wild, and you can watch it, in its fairly NSFW glory, above.
