Kanye West Returned To Social Media To Talk About Tattoos, Shoes, And Consciousness

On Friday (April 13), Kanye West made his miraculous return to Twitter. Last May, Kanye deactivated his Twitter and Instagram accounts, but re-activated the latter as part of Kim Kardashian’s Valentine’s Day gift. Over the weekend, Kanye made sure his tweets covered a wide range of topics including, tattoo ideas and his favorite Saint Pablo merch. However, he also started to show off the inspiration behind various models of his Yeezy sneaker line.

The reasoning behind this might come from a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where Kanye sat down with interior designer Axel Vervoordt. During the discussion, Kanye admits to being upset after multiple publications describe Virgil Abloh — recently appointed to Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director — as his creative director, instead of creative collaborator.

“It’s not bad or good, it’s my creative collaborator being the head of Louis Vuitton,” Kanye said. “Because [Abloh and I] have been fighting to make apparel at a certain price that still has the same credibility and desirability as something at a higher price…But when they say he was my creative director, that’s incorrect. He was a creative collaborator.”

Later in the discussion, The Life of Pablo-artist shares his ultimate goal with his fashion line.

“At Adidas, I have Yeezy, but it’s a namesake brand,” West continued. “It’s my nickname. We do these sneakers that sell out and we get, ‘Oh, this is the number one brand on Women’s Wear Daily.’ And I don’t wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water. I wish to be closer to UNICEF or something where I can take the information that I have and help as many people as possible, not to just shove it into a brand”

Hopefully, Kanye will start getting the credit he deserves and keeps dropping mental jewels on Twitter.

Cardi B Talks About Her Pregnancy & Making Money Moves On TRL

These days, it’s impossible to go anywhere without a mention of Cardi B—I barely remember what life was like before the entertainment world revolved around her! Last week, the rapper sealed her fate as a music legend with the release of her bombshell debut album titled Invasion Of Privacy. Following all of her groundbreaking success, it only seemed right that the Love & Hip-Hop alum take over the TRL studio for the day to celebrate her latest accomplishments.

Sway Calloway made his epic return to MTV to celebrate this monumental moment, also tapping Cardi’s sister Hennessy Carolina to co-host the show and count down her top 10 iconic moments. After they warmed up the show, Queen Cardi sat on her cushioned throne and talked everyone through her latest life updates, including her newly announced pregnancy, her engagement to Offset, what went down at the Invasion Of Privacy release party and the moment that she felt like she finally made it.

Cardi also reflected on the legacy of her viral video for “a hoe never gets cold” and then got super nostalgic with Hennessy in a round of I Did It that ended with her casually getting a brand-new Gucci bag. J Balvin and DJ Khaled also sent over some special shoutouts, which was too cute. Cardi is truly a character with a big personality, so it made sense that some fierce drag queens touched down in the studio and embodied a few of our favorite versions of her. On top of that, Cardi also got a custom cover blanket courtesy of collage.com, a one-of-a-kind painting and a gigantic cake. Just another day in the fabulous life of Cardi B!

Steve Aoki & Lil Uzi Vert Are All About The Coins In “Been Ballin”

Nothing makes my heart race faster than TRL alums uniting to create something legendary. Steve Aoki and Lil Uzi Vert have done just that with their latest single “Been Ballin” and now there’s an official music video to capture the vibe of this dynamic collab.

Given that the song is about the perks of being a moneymaker, the visual shows exactly what the artists like to spend their paper on: all gold everything. (Is it just me or am I starting to see a theme here?) The track is featured on the producer’s latest album Kolony. Get a glimpse at all the coins and chains in the video below.

Eight Things You Should Know About the Nike Air Max 270

Following our exclusive look at the Nike Air Max 270 earlier today, the Swoosh dishes out even more details on its excitable new silhouette. They’ve focused on eight key facts regarding the lifestyle centric Air Max 270 — all of which we detail for you here.

Breaking history almost immediately, the Air Max 270 is championed as Nike’s first Air Unit lifestyle shoe. Sure, there have been other lifestyle driven shoes with aesthetically pleasing Air cushioning, but all others saw a primary focus as a performance runner. It’s also noteworthy that the shoe is inspired by both the Air Max 93 and the Air Max 180, respectively.

The shoes 270 moniker originated from an internal Nike epithet for the Air Max 93, which acts as a call back to the 270 degrees of visibility in the Air Unit. Also, to that end, it’s the tallest Air Unit ever, tallying 32-mm in height. This speaks to the biggest heel volume displacement on record in efforts to support maximum Air comfort.

All this cushioning and height will make appearances on a variety of Nike silhouettes in 2018, many of which will be dressed in different colors.

Another interesting fact about the Air Max 270 is that Kevin Durant was one of the first Nike athletes to wear test the shoe. He loves them and also owns the largest pair: a size 18.

The eighth and final fact regarding the Nike Air Max 270 is its release date: February 1, 2018. Select retailers will stock the shoe as well as Nike SNKRS. Take a closer look below.

KAWS Provides Update About KAWS x Jordans That Never Released Online

Last night at the Brooklyn Museum, Jordan Brand hosted a special event to celebrate the KAWS x Air Jordan collection that debuted in China on the 28th and officially everywhere else yesterday on the 31st of March.

While no online release happened for the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 yesterday with the select retail partners who had the collection, many assumed that they would release on their release date on KAWS’ site, kawsone.com.

As images and video of the event last night surfaced on social media, many fans who had been refreshing the site throughout the day started to wonder if the release was ever going to happen – which it did not.

KAWS, legally known as Brian Donnelly, became aware of the frustration of many and addressed them in an Instagram post that we have embedded below:

Thanks everyone who came out to the #KAWS @jumpman23 release at the @brooklynmuseum today! I’m seeing a lot of comments from people upset about my website not releasing the product today but I never mentioned product would be on my site today. For every release on kawsone I have sent a mailer the day before announcing the release and time it will go live. I wish I caught wind of this sooner so I could prevent wasted time and expectations.

A post shared by @kaws on

While it wasn’t definitively clear about the release like most sneaker releases by Jordan or other brands, I think that sneakerheads need to consider that this project was a collaboration with a world renowned artist.  An artist that has every right to release his work how he sees fit with his brand and for his fan base which he has an excellent reputation with for many years.

Stay tuned for updates on this release and all others on Nice Kicks and be sure to follow KAWS on Instagram as well.
