What began as a rough sketch, became ready to print for a festival Tony Peralta was vending at this past Sunday. He's one of my favorite artist who's talent and love for art aren't compromised 'cause he doesn't make wack shit! And due to that, it's one of my favorite pieces from him.

iLTHY is in full swing wit' the Summer 13 collection, and one of the pieces I mentioned being progressive for Streetwear were the camo basketball shorts, and here is the block logo snapback. Seriously, how dope is this?

I'm puzzled. By no means do I know all there is to know about Kicks, but I know my share. Above is an Air Jordan 3 I believe has never been released, but I've never heard anyone talk about it or refer to it. It's pretty much the 'White Cement 3' with red on the outsole, as per the black. Nike uses this shoe to represent the AJ3 in their History of AJ shoes on their site. Also, I've noticed, it's a newer generation shoe, not just 'cause of the clean appearance, but 'cause the size label is heat transferred on newer AJ's.

What looks to be a sample, I recently came across this photo of a pair of shorts in black, by Riots & Roses. Could the "RIOT" be in 3M, or are they screenprinted? Are the shorts denim, or cotton? Who knows...but I'm told they are official, and being considered for a future release.
Keep it on the Riot!
Editors note: Pardon the kinda' pixelated photo, it's gritty sample photo shit, lol.
My girl Asheezy (Ashley) from Frank's Chop Shop, along wit' the Scrapers frontman Mr. Bee, both reached out about his new video featuring him & his band. Lil' left from what we usually post, but dope music is certainly dope music, and Mr. Bee is in to a lot of cool music, including Hip-Hop from my conversations wit' him.
Visit Mr. Bee at FCS, he's the lead barber there; get a fade, and talk shit and music.

I took back my new BlackBerry Z10, and got the all new Q10, so yeah, I upgraded my upgrade. Matte black housing, carbon fiber battery panel, half touchscreen half qwerty, and powering it all is the new BlackBerry 10 operating system.
No need to say more. WAVY!

Shot at Scope Art Fair 2013, are four unique but obviously packaged by the same manufacture, high-end designer candy. More interesting to me than taste is who was giving this much brand approval to do all four? Pretty cool.
