It’s no secret that King Kendrick has created the best Reebok collaborations compared to multiple collaborations in the past, which was no threat to Lamar. Kendrick Lamar and Reebok recently collaborated on the Reebok Ventilators which was inspired by the gang violence in his hometown of Compton, California. The Reebok Ventilators were made as an off white suede base that alternates blue and red accents on each sneaker.

Now we all know that the gang references are obvious but the word “Neutral” is located on each tongue of the sneaker. The tongue tag is a reminder of the platform Kendrick has been pushing throughout his entire career. Nothing makes it complete with the TDE branding on the tongue and will come packaged with both flat and rope laces. The Ventilators are  scheduled to release this month on July 18th at the price of $140 in the United States.

Lil Wayne signed a deal with Jay Z?

Unknown

It was an interesting day for hip hop when Lil Wayne took the stage at the KMEL Summer Jam this past Saturday. The crowd began to cheer as the rumors started to fly as Weezy announced that he signed a deal with none other than Jay Z. Could this mean that Weezy is now apart of the Roc Nation family? NEGATIVE!! Lil Wayne’s manager set the record straight that it was more like his new involvement with Tidal as a co-owner for this month, followed by him dropping a new track called “Glory.” Of course the fans and blogs would take this story and run with it after he spoke about the new deal. What Lil Wayne actually referred to was his new partnership with Jay Z and his new deal as an artist owner on Tidal.

Now his may have been disappointed for it now being the collaboration they expected, but signing any deal with Jay Z can only mean a big success!! Knowing that Lil Wayne and Jay Z are two of the biggest hip hop artists with several awarded Grammys with #1 radio hits between them, Jay Z has expressed interest in him years ago before signing to Cash Money. Now thats tea for sure!! A while back Jay Z stopped by Power 105.1 when he mentioned in a Breakfast Club interview that he called him out of respect and that it was only right to bring him in on the deal.

But hold up, wait a minute!! Let’s not forget that Lil Wayne is till indeed signed to Cash Money which has always been his home away from home since his first recording back in 1993. Since the news of Wayne’s departure from Cash Money, he’s not holding back on his opinions about Cash Money and Birman.

To Pimp A Butterfly Breaks The Internet

On the 20th anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s album “Me Against The World”, Kendrick Lamar’s highly anticipated album, “To Pimp A Butterfly” was released Sunday night and became the most talked about trending topic on Twitter. The new album was a follow up from Lamar’s debut album “Good kid, M.a.a.d City. The original release date for the album was scheduled to dropped next week on March 23rd. However, releasing the album early was all in King Kendrick’s plan. The next day he tweeted, “Yesterday, March 14th was a special day.” He also tweeted, “20 years later.” – Kendrick Lamar

Although there was much excitement about the release, it also brought on much confusion for iTunes and Spotify, where the clean and explicit versions went up at two different times, it was taken down then went live again. Now don’t get it twisted, it’s no surprise that the album release would keep the people on their toes. Lamar has been noted to be hip hop’s man of methodical thinking who is the underdog of Drake’s recent success. 

This compilation of musical genius speaks on the issues of race and racial tensions in America, the national discourse of black lives mattering, black dysfunctions and personal demons that he faces. The many musical layers of this album fills the ears of listeners to look forward to hearing mothership funk, a loose free-form of jazz and down-home soul. The lyrics of each song are powered with race and personal identity that could possibly make someone of mixed company become very uncomfortable. Although it defies that feel of easy listening, it becomes deeply rewarding for Lamar’s body of work as he also gives us the old-fashion sense of complexity. Kendrick’s obsession with seeing women as whole beings, messy complexities of life, and the conflicts of revenge and violence are all told in reviving stories through real poetry that speaks of hidden truths and exposed secrets. The self-proclaimed has truly out-done himself. This album is more than an announcement, its the start of a revolutionary conversation. 

Kanye West & Dame Dash makes power moves!! 

If Kanye hasn’t made his mark into the fashion world, this by far could put him on the right track. Recently, Kanye West and Dame Dash has taken things to the next level by officially purchasing online streetwear retailer Karmaloop. Dash broke the news by making an announcement on his Instagram page. Karmaloop stocked hundreds of brands such as Billionaire Boys Club, New Balance, Dimepiece LA and even 10 Deep. The online store also gave up and coming labels in the world of streetwear to set a platform to sell their styles inside the company’s marketplace. 

Karmaloop recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy by force last even though the company holds a huge following within the streetwear community since it first launched in 2000. According to fashionista.com, the online streetwear store had fallen into millions of dollars worth of debt. The company was saved from complete shut down due to the purchase from the duo who recently reconciled their differences. 

While Dash and West urges their fans not to expect any music, but to look forward to this new venture there’s little to no mentions of their plans for the site which averages 4 million visitors per month. 

Karmaloop founder Greg Selkoe also confirmed the new partnership via Twitter and mentions that he plans to remain involved of the online store’s future.
