Check out A$AP Rocky's "Money Man" Short Film

Posted by Ross Dwyer at

Cozy boy season. The A$AP Mob's "Cozy Tapes" is almost upon us, and A$AP Rocky's AWGE collective recently released a short film entitled "Money Man" that serves as a lead-in to the project. It tells the story of Rina, a character trapped in a world of crime and negative energy, and features two new tracks from Rocky, "Money Man" featuring A$AP Nast and "Put That On My Set" featuring Skepta.  The film's style is inspired by "La Haine", an influential French film released in 1995 starring Said Taghmaoui (who makes a cameo in "Money Man" as well).

Posted by Ross Dwyer at

  The Ultra Boost vs. the NMD. Two of the most gassed shoes on the market, both courtesy of Adidas, and both featuring the best cushioning technology on the market, Boost foam. Some sneakerheads prefer the Ultra Boost. Some prefer the NMD. A lot of sneaker heads love them both. But today’s the day we crown a champion.

Posted by Ross Dwyer at

It’s a battle for the ages. David and Goliath. Gatti and Ward. Hobbs and Whammer. The Yeezy 350 Boost and the OVO XII. This is like Celebrity Deathmatch, except we’re comparing sneakers instead of the celebrities themselves. In the red corner, we’ve got Kanye West‘s Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost V2. In the blue corner, we’ve got Drake‘s Jordan OVO XII. They’ll go head to head for four rounds (four important categories: materials, comfort, wearability, and cultural significance), and only after that will a winner emerge. Alright, enough with the boxing analogies, let’s get to the first category in our sneaker showdown. Note:...
