Evidence – You

just doin’ my bit for real rap music. so many gems dropped, and it gets deeper with every listen. i think i’m only really checking for about ten dudes in 2011, Evidence is one of them..and real nice to hear someone cutting havoc’s verse from shook one’s, not p’s…guwan mickey!


Bizmarkie Pro-Keds…

Sure, there have been a trailer-load of Rapper endorsed sneaks in the past, so get excited and whoop loudly, here’s another, nooch. This time the ‘Ripstop 69er Lo’ has been re-branded by the ‘crack squads of savvy motivated personnel’ at Pro-Keds.

It’s a nice shoe, I just cant buy into buying a shoe with the face of the Inhuman Orchestra on the tongue, as well as the insole/ footbed whatever it is. I cannot and will not put my foot on an unattractive mans face [pause]…

The Black/ Navy looks grown, premium leathers by the looks, a shoe that probably suits Biz’ flat-feet, but not mine. Im a mid-man mostly, anyways my inner man-fan is more about the Flash Drive than anything. Novelty factor high.

Alternatively, you could head to Crooked Tongues, pick up a pair of the canvas looking ‘ripstop nylon’ Ripstops for 25 bills and draw Biz’ resplendent features on yerself. That’s half price, plus the cost of Sharpies

If you wanna know more about Bizmarkie Pro-Keds, give the Hanon lot a shout, theyre up in Aberdeen, good peoples…

Sneaker riots, still ? Really people ?

How many years after the previous melee over the Pigeon SB is this kinda blinkered shite still happening? This is not cool, no matter how cool a shoe design is. Dont you get it kids, the marketing men are laughin at ye, hard. Yer an ad mans wet-dream.

Catch a houl of yerself!

‘Awaydays’ is a British film about a British culture, specifically, the culture of fashion and the association with football terraces, amongst other things. Biggest respect to Robert Elms.

There’s also a fascinatin one on one interview with Writer Kevin Sampson over at Tim Lovejoys spot….

For the sneaker collecting lemmings of today, this short clip alone, is a history lesson.

‘Awaydays’ is released in the UK tomorrow, 22 May
