Meek Mill Gets A Taste Of Freedom In Powerful ‘1942 Flows’ Video

While Meek Mill remains locked up, his team continues the “Free Meek” campaign with the release of his new video for “1942 Flows,” a reflective track from last year’s Wins and Losses.

The poignant clip begins with a fictional scene of Meek leaving prison and confronting a horde of reporters. He speaks candidly about his so-called freedom, saying, “I feel like a free slave, you know? I feel like I’ve been targeted by certain people. Just being out on the streets and knowing somebody can take your freedom at any time.”

“My freedom on the line,” he adds at one point. “Unfortunately, I made mistakes when I was younger. It’s trailing me for the rest of my life.”

The rest of the video is largely comprised of footage of scenes from Free Meek Mill rallies — featuring a cameo from Rick Ross — and it ends with the chants of protesters demanding his freedom. It’s an emotional watch, given Meek’s current situation, but it’s also a powerful plea for justice that demands to be seen.

Meek is currently serving two to four years in prison for probation violations. Last week, Judge Genece Brinkley denied the rapper’s bail request, but the Philadelphia District Attorney has since filed a motion saying he wouldn’t oppose Meek’s release on bail. The decision now rests on the Supreme Court.

Russell Westbrook Gets Air Jordan XXX1/10/10 PE Pack for His MVP Season

We all know what Jordan Brand does when one of their athletes wins a ring, but what about when they win NBA MVP? We found out today as 2016-17 NBA MVP Russell Westbrook scored a very appropriate Air Jordan XXX1/10/10 PE Pack for his accomplishments.

Playing literally and figuratively off his sensational stat line, the package is literally a triple-double as it includes three pairs pulling from his 31, 10 and 10 season long averages. It works perfectly, too, as the XXX1 proved the shoe he made history in while the AJ10 has been a PE favorite of Mr. Why Not since his early days in OKC.

While the XXX1s went live on SNKRS, our buddies at J23App pulled a preview of the fixings gifted to Russ. Would you cop this package if released at retail? Let us know in the comments section and congrats to Mr. Westbrook.

Virgil Abloh’s Off-White x Nike Air VaporMax Gets the Details Right

Virgil Abloh, throughout his triumphant career in fashion and design, has succeeded largely by forecasting cultural climate and mastering its delicate and often underlying details. And details come in many forms; some overt, some subtle. His upcoming Off-White x Nike Air VaporMax gets it right on both fronts.

The shoes deconstructed onset is, in and of itself, design satire. The exposed stitching, outspoken branding, and general departure from luxury while still appearing contemporary, is irony at its finest. Moreover, much like the overarching thesis of Off-White, the shoe acts as a detailed learning guide for the next generation to follow. Virgil is providing the blueprint for sneaker design in the most stylish and clever way possible. And without giving away too much; there’s still learning to be done.

See for yourself below as we take our best look yet at the upcoming Off-White VaporMax. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more.

The Nike Air Max 90 Gets Black/White Animal Print Update

Animal print is nothing new these days when it comes to sneaker design concepts. But that hasn’t stopped brands from doing so in their own unique ways. Nike, always a creative leader, adorns the anniversary stricken Air Max 90 in a monochromatic black and white animal printed edition.

Although the shoe is exclusive to GS kiddos, this Nike Air Max 90 breaks conformity in terms of animal print with black and white spots encapsulated by a stark noir outer in leather. Finished with a clean white mid and corresponding black outer, this two-tone rendition is available now at select Nike accounts.
