case of the mundaze.

even though they should have won record & album of the year... congrats to Gnarls Barkley, who still picked up two grammy awards last night.

what if Kanye West, Nas, KRS One and Rakim were all on the same track... and dj premier produced it?! well, it's here (mp3). it only took Nike's $$ to make it happen.

jay-z gets political (quicktime mov).

morning,

wex.

It's the 25th Anniversary of the AF1. Originally it was the first Nike sneaker to use the Nike Air technology (i.e. the air cushion). It also began Nike's rise as the premier sneaker. In the following years in the 80's, Michael Jordan and Bo Jackson got endorsement deals, the Air Max series was released, "Just Do It" became the tagline and the company's revenues surpassed 1 billion dollars.

youre right, wex, it didnt quite live up to expectations. On the other hand expectations for that lineup were, well, very high.
sounds like primo recycled that beat, i think thats the chimes from Discipline.

i recall fondly the battles between the nike air lineup and the reebok pump arsenal. marshalls and tj max (mom took me clothes shopping when we visited my grandparents in massachussetts)had more of the later so that is where my alleigance ended up.
