The Jordan 6 Rings originally launched in 2008 and has now become a staple in the Jordan lineup. This retro-inspired design features elements from the signature Jordan models that MJ won NBA Championship titles in but judging by the way it flies off the shelves, it deserves a title of its own.
The latest colorway of the Jordan 6 Rings is the “Venom Green” version. It features an Elephant Print upper design on an otherwise all black upper that has been accented with a contrasting Venom Green inner lining. The finishing touches on this colorway come in the form of the iconic Jumpman Jordan logo on the tongue, which is placed on the heel and tongue of the 6 Rings.

adidas has recaptured some attention over the past few months. No, not because the brand is killing it in the NBA, with new athlete signings, or challenging the status quo on the soccer field. Instead, the excitement is bred through an unmatched campaign to unite thought leaders in music and style. The three stripes are buzzing after luring a disgruntled Kanye West away from Nike and add him to an already lofty crew of designers that include Yohji Yamamoto, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, and Jeremy Scott. Now it appears there's another big-name signing for adidas that's been just out of sight of the blogosphere, Pharrell Williams.
A month ago, Highsnobiety published an industry rumor that Pharrell was signing to the sports brand, and reported, "Multiple sources have cited that the German firm has been working for months on an agreement that would add Williams to the adidas roster of artists and designers."
Two days later, on January 26, Pharrell showed up to the Grammys in a Vivienne Westwood brown hat that stole the show, but he was also wearing a pivotal garment: A leather version of adidas' classic Firebird jacket that had been made famous by B-boys in the '80s.
Since then, the evidence has been rolling in and pointing to Pharrell - who previously has designed sneakers with A Bathing Ape, Nike, and Reebok - coming on-board with adidas.
Two weeks after Pharrell hit the Grammy red carpet, he appeared at a nominee luncheon for the Academy Awards in a pair of customized white and green adidas Stan Smiths that read, "I Dunno," on the right sneaker sneaker and "Inside" on the left shoe.
Let's pause for a second. When was the last time Pharrell wore sneakers that weren't from a high-end fashion house? read more...
50 Cent Parts Ways with Interscope Records, Signs Independent Deal with Caroline/Capitol/UMG via FullPiso
50 Cent has announced his departure from Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records, which ends a successful partnership between the New York rapper and the first major label he signed with in 2002. In the span of 12 years, 50 released four solo albums under Interscope, with both Get Rich or Die Tryin' and The Massacre topping the charts. He also started his own label, G-Unit Records, with Interscope, which anchored his own roster of rappers.
50 Cent has also announced an exclusive distribution deal with Caroline/Capitol/UMG, which is where he'll be releasing his upcoming album Animal Ambition. According to 50, the album will be released June 3. Before then, he plans on releasing a song and video every week starting March 18, which is when Animal Ambition becomes available for pre-order.
Read what 50 Cent and Eminem have to say about the decision below:
I have had great success to date with Shady/Aftermath/Interscope and I’d like to thank Eminem and Dr. Dre for giving me an incredible opportunity. I’ve learned so much from them through the years. I am excited to enter this new era where I can carry out my creative vision.
Both myself and Shady Records are grateful to have had the chance to play a part in 50′s career. Shady simply would not be what it is without 50 Cent. I’ve developed a great friendship with 50 over the years, and that’s not going to change. We know 50 will have success in his new situation, and we remain supporters of both him and G-Unit.

The Internet has amazing potential to expose us to new things. I’ve seen a six-way alley-oop impeccably coordinated like a Rube Goldberg machine built out of bored teenagers. I’ve seen too many cat videos and GIFs to count, which may or may not have resulted in me making the monumental leap to liking cats. But as a music nerd lifer, one of the most exciting aspects of the Internet is its ability to expose us to new music. My lamentation over the fall of the local record store has been mildly (if not temporarily) assuaged by the boundless access to music I have over my WiFi connection. This is one positive tradeoff of the music world morphing into a digital approximation of its former self: music is everywhere, and it’s mostly free.
Services like Spotify, Soundcloud, Pandora, Grooveshark, and Rdio have made big bucks exploring and exploiting this very idea. It’s a goldmine, and it’s a perfect target for the startup world. So it’s no surprise that innovative music discovery platforms seem to pop up constantly, each using their own creative approach to helping music fans discover hidden gems that were only accessible by slim chance even 15 years ago. I’ve come across obscure Ghanaian High Life music and field recordings of Blues greats using these services. I’ve also been able to share a playlist with friends for a Friday night party, and follow musical trends as they grow and fade. Without a doubt, these music discovery platforms give users access to an insane amount of music. Out of the countless music startups around the world, the following 10 sites and apps, all of which are free or very close to free, are the best music discovery platforms available right now. Take a look and happy hunting.

Did Nike Launch "Red October" AirYeezy II the Right Way? via FullPiso astabajoproject Orlando reggaeton seo
At around 1 p.m. EST on February 9, 2014, the sneaker world witnessed something they thought they would never see. In what was possibly the quickest quickstrike of all time, the release of the “Red October” Air Yeezy II officially dropped on Nike.com like a thief in the night.
If you weren’t at the right place at the right time, checking @NikeStore’s Twitter feed with a credit card handy, you were basically shit out of luck because the sneaker sold out in a matter of 11 minutes. But was this the best way for Nike to handle the release of this shoe? It sure was.
The storyline of the release of the Red Octobers is an oddity in this industry, and with every twist and turn the plot has taken in the past year, it’s built up more hype and anticipation among sneakerheads and Kanye Stans.
First, they were be going to be gifted to a few lucky winners of a Willy Wonka-esque giveaway that Kanye West had in June. Then, Foot Locker confirmed that the shoes would be sold at its doors this past December, then canceled the release. The sneakers showed up on Fancy this past week, with a price tag of $10,000 a pair. And somewhere in between all of that, Kanye left Nike to go to adidas.
Despite the murkiness about the Red October's availability, the sneaker community knew that the shoes existed in warehouses somewhere. The hype about the sneakers was real, and controversy about what Nike was going to do with the sneakers kept growing as time passed by.
The company needed to drop this shoe and do it in the quietest way possible. Nike wanted to get this sneaker off their back and finalize the end of its relationship with Kanye West.
But everybody noticed. The words “Yeezys," “Red Octobers," and “The Nike Air Yeezy 2” were all worldwide trending topics within minutes of the drop. There was no escaping the cultural impact that this sneaker had on people and the mythical status these shoes had about them.
Even though the sneakers may be a very small piece of the pie for Nike financially, the Red Octobers, and the Yeezy franchise in general, goes to show what the brand is giving up by letting Kanye West go. The artist’s involvement added a mystique to these products that couldn’t be garnered through technological innovation or multimillion dollar marketing campaigns.
In some ways, Nike devalued itself from a performance aspect with all of the attention being paid on a non-performance product, so why add even more spotlight on by giving the Red Octobers a grand release?
There's also the issue of safety. Remember the madness around the launch of the first Air Yeezy II colorways, with people camping out for months? Exactly why it wouldn't make sense for Nike to drop these shoes at brick-and-mortar stores.
Sunday’s launch of the Red Octobers signaled the official end of the Kanye West x Nike era. The brand can finally move on and put this debacle behind them, while the sneaker community can finally stop wondering when these fabled sneakers will release. Now, they can start looking ahead to Kanye’s next move with adidas.

Video of Fat Joe and Scott Storch sitting together in the studio has surfaced online. The two have worked together on several big records, including "Lean Back" and "Get It Poppin." In the video, Storch explains how the two got back together after a lengthy hiatus, and also gives fans a snippet of one of two songs the two have done together since linking back up. Both have gone through obstacles over the past few years, with Storch battling drug addiction and Joe overcoming a brief prison sentence for tax evasion.

Diddy to Executive Produce Rick Ross forthcoming album "Mastermind" via FullPiso astabajoproject Orlando reggaeton seo
Diddy is executive producing Rick Ross' forthcoming album Mastermind. After initially being announced as the album's mixer, the Bad Boy honcho was announced as executive producer today.
"Now we can let the cat out the bag," Diddy said in a video for his Revolt TV. "In the final two weeks, I was brought in as part of the team... to co-executive produce this Mastermind album. It's a privilege." Ross added his two cents with, "This is the biggest event of the year, March 4th. All the masterminds came together, man." In an official press release, Ross continued, "Diddy is one of the greatest producers of all time and someone I respect. He has a proven track record of not only creating hit records but also classic albums. It just made sense for me to have him be a part of this process."
Diddy has production credits for big names like Jay Z and Beyonce to J. Lo and The Notorious B.I.G.
