Future Proves March Madness Is Nothing Without Him On ‘Absolutely Going Brazy’

Future proved almost three years ago that his name would forever be synonymous with March Madness. Nonetheless, the Atlanta rapper is hammering home that point on his new song “Absolutely Going Brazy.” The visual is a montage of Future’s live performances over the past year.

The most entertaining but seemingly insignificant moment of the video is when a fan in the crowd holds up a sign of Pickle Rick, which poses a few questions. Is Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn a closeted Rick and Morty stan? Is this fan hoping that Future will change his beverage of choice from lean to McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce?

On “Absolutely Going Brazy,” Future sings, “Stack it up, I don’t take a day off,” which, considering his output in the new year, is fairly accurate. In the past three months, Future’s received a producer credit on the upcoming film Superfly, reunited with Tinashe on “Faded Love,” released multiple videos with Young Thug, and appeared on “King’s Dead” with Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock.

It isn’t clear what “Absolutely Going Brazy” means regarding a new Hendrix album or mixtape. However, Future makes his point well known. He is indeed still going brazy.

BAIT x adidas Consortium Support Future // Available Now

Released over the weekend, BAIT pushes the tech boundaries with their adidas Consortium EQT Support Future R&D Pack.

The EQT Support 93/16 gets a blanco y blanco Primeknit fascia wrapped in newly developed M.O.D. Cage enriching stability. Of course, it’s not an adidas collab without the coveted Boost technology creating the bounce that cushions the foundation. Glow-in-the-dark and 3M reflective materials hide beneath the surface ready to pop as soon as the lights go out.

Equally important, the EQT Support Future, was developed as a cross-pollination of the Ultraboost and EQT Support ADV silhouettes. With attention to detail reigning supreme, the upper is draped in Primeknit with 3M reflective materials sitting a layer below.

White pairs are still available over at Livestock. In light of the black pair selling out stay tuned to Nice Kicks for other adidas consortium locations and updates.

Peep both pairs below.

Interview // Kyle Ng On Being Inspired By Tactical Art to Design the Future of Air with Nike

photos, interview & words // Ray P.:

Whether you’re a straight up sneakerhead or use sneakers as a form of artistic expression, it’s deeper than just rubber soles and laces. Kyle NG, artist and Nike Revolutionair, is a perfect example of the latter. From Nike using waffles to design shoes to having guys on the team named The Architect, it’s evident that inspiration for what you wear on your feet extends beyond the simple concept of footwear.

The Swoosh invited 12 chosen ones to reimagine Nike Air Max styles as part of their “Revolutionairs” campaign. Using Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, as their playground these artists, designers, DJs, and retailers were tasked with reimagining the most iconic cushioning to ever hit the pavement.  The Revolutionair’s shoe with the most votes in their favor will actually have his or her Nike Air model released in 2018 on Air Max Day.

Read ahead for a discussion with Kyle NG on the deeper level meaning of his shoe design, what artists inspire him daily, and more in the interview below:

Ray P: High key, when I wore the Air Max 1 Flyknit Ultra last Spring, it was the best feeling Air Max that ever graced my feet. So, when I saw your Revolutionair design, I immediately knew you knew what’s up. You picked a great base shoe that I think a lot of people are sleeping on. What made you choose that specific version of the AM1?

Kyle Ng: I come from a design background and art community rather than the sneaker world. I love the idea of Flyknit and the artisanal idea of mechanized craft. The rich idea of weaving techniques really drew me to the shoe. A lot of my design is about California art and tactile art, the touch and quality of craftsmanship. If you go to Palm Springs you’ll see a lot of art and my design is representative of that, too. The colors give off a real organic feel. The polka dots you see along the uppers represents artist Sister Corita Kent and all the amazing political activism as well as art she put effort into.

The Air Max 1 itself has a rich heritage in art and design coupled with great story with Tinker Hatfield and his background in Architectural design.

RP: If you could choose one model or celebrity to style in your shoe for a lookbook, who would you bring on board to represent the future of Air with you?

KN: I love the artist David Hockney. He has the illest style in the world.

RP: I just googled the guy, you weren’t lying, ha! Dude’s style is sick.

Earlier, I interviewed fellow Nike Revolutionair Sean Wotherspoon and asked him the same question, how has sneakers changed your life?

KN: I wouldn’t consider myself a super sneakerhead kid, but I love sneakers as a design object. I have a lot of shoes, but I wear everything. I don’t keep anything on ice. I started with Nike SB because I skated all the time. I love the idea of shoes having more of a story than just a normal thing. Sneakers are the one design object you wear every single day. I think it’s important to have the thing you use most in your life to be of super quality, you know? And to me, Nike has always been that brand that go-to brand. The Air Max line incorporates the stuff I love like design ethos and puts it into a shoe itself. SB’s and Air Max’s changed the way I looked at shoes.

Really it’s about the idea that you’re using the foot as an action to make movements. And not just a physical movement, but a political movement or any kind of movement artistically and creatively

RP: I love your perspective. Nike SB did that for me as well.

Before we go head into the SNEAKEASY  Pop-up, It’s the last day people can vote for you… what do you want the people to know?

KN: The shoe is about inspiring the idea of creativity. It’s more of a social message. The words on the back of the shoe “Give a damn” is based off the artist I mentioned earlier Sister Corita, it’s a nod to a pin that she used in one of her prints that I own.

Really it’s about the idea that you’re using the foot as an action to make movements. And not just a physical movement, but a political movement or any kind of movement artistically and creatively. That’s what I wanted to show, a shoe that goes beyond something you work out in, train in or skate in, it’s more about a spiritual, next level idea of what shoes should be.

Sneakers are a vessel to create more ethos. I tend to pick shoes that inspire me to do something bigger.

RP: I always tell people sneakers are the most powerful statements you can make without ever saying one word. So I appreciate your time and you definitely took sneakers to a deeper level of thinking than most would anticipate. You’re dope.

KN: Man, thank you. That’s what it’s all about. Peace.

Maison Martin Margiela Just Dropped A Low-Top Edition Of The Future Model

Over the last few years, the Maison Martin Margiela Future high-top model has been a constant staple in our Celebrity Sneaker Stalker features, as the made-in-Italy strapped up sneaker can be spotted in several of its full color leather or metallic colorways on a weekly basis.

Of course, that was the model that Kanye West began wearing throughout his Yeezus Tour since the fall of 2013, while he was in contract limbo between his Nike and adidas deals. (But some old guy doesn’t think Ye is influential, so that’s probably not worth mentioning.)

Now that the high-top variation has become a franchise silhouette for the brand, MMM recently released a low-top complement in a handful of colorways. While the sizable strap is no more, the trademark open flapped eyestay remains, keeping a similar look and feel.

They’re available now over in 5 colorways on SSENSE.com for a cool $ 795 and up.
