Unseen // Reebok Question “Bronze Medal” Sample

words & images // Nick DePaula:

Sometimes in life, things don’t go as planned. When the 2004 US Men’s National Team fell short of reaching the Gold Medal game at the Athens Summer Olympics, a first in the team’s pro-roster history, Allen Iverson didn’t waver in his pride to represent his country, or in his duty to make sure the team finished out the Olympics strong.

“If you don’t get it done the way you expected to, I think it’s important that you get it done the best way you can,” Iverson then told Adrian Wojnarowski in Athens. “It’s important that we come out and fight, and get the people proud of us back home.”

2004 AI Interview USA DuragWhile the team may have unceremoniously returned to the states with a Bronze Medal, Iverson was still proud to play in his first and only Olympics, oft-donning custom patriotic editions of the arm sleeve and du-rag accessories we’d come to know him for.

“It’s an honor to be named to this team,” Iverson continued. “It’s something that you should cherish for the rest of your life. And honestly, this is something that I will cherish, even without winning a gold medal. I feel like a special basketball player to make it to a team like this.”

Had the team made it to the final game of the 2004 Olympic tournament, Reebok most certainly would have released a special Gold Medal edition of the Question 2 sneaker that Iverson was wearing in Greece. That launch, of course, never came.

Over the years, as the brand looked to celebrate moments and memories throughout Allen’s career, this sample edition of Iverson’s very first shoe, the Question, was created with the summer of 2004 in mind. With a more vivid blue hued upper, his Olympic jersey #4 along the heel and flag-inspired stripes covering the midfoot’s Hexalite window, the sample took on a look unlike any other Question before it.

Throughout the footwear process at all brands, decisions are often to made to scrap products for a variety of reasons. As you can imagine, the reason this shoe never made it to retail is pretty straightforward — celebrating the US team’s 3rd place Olympic finish in 2004 was ultimately deemed not aspirational enough.

What Happened To NY Hip-Hop? New Documentary Attempts To Answer Controversial Question

By Rob Markman

With so much attention on New York City and it’s positioning in the rap game, it seems like the perfect time for DJ S. Whit’s upcoming documentary “The New York Rap Revival.” Whit, who is a DJ and on-air personality for SIRIUSXM’s Hip-Hop Nation, recently launched a Kickstarter for the film which analyzes the Big Apple’s current role in hip-hop.

The independent film features commentary from MTV News correspondent and Shade 45 host Sway Calloway, Rap Radar content director Brian “B.Dot” Miller as well as NYC rapper’s Troy Ave, Emilio Rojas, Vinny Chase and veteran spitter AZ.

The doc comes at an interesting time. On Tuesday, Atlanta rapper Trinidad James riled the city up after he made expressed his views on the NY Hip-Hop. “I remember when New York rap was the sh– and us ‘bamas,’ us from the South was like, ‘What the f—?’ And we just did our own thing, but now we run y’all musically. That’s crazy,” he said, much to the crowd’s shock.
Since then, a number of New York MC have spoken out against James, most notably Maino, who went on Hot 97 and demanded an apology from Trinidad on behalf of the city.

On Wednesday Bun B came up to “RapFix Live” and downplayed all of the drama. “Hip-hop and the actual art of rapping started here in New York, so if you’re an MC by due product you’re already trying to be like New York. So it don’t make no sense for nobody to act like New York trying to be like them,” he reasoned.
