A photo of the long awaited and highly coveted Air Jordan "Playoff" 13 has surfaced. The shoe was originally released in 1997, as Jordan captured the 5th of his 6 titles. The "Playoff" colorway of the 13's have never been retroed and is one of the hardest pair of Jordans to come across. From the photo, the shoe looks to have remained true to the original design. Along with the "Flint" and white/red colorways, the "Playoffs" will be the 3rd pair of 13's to release in the next 6 months. The shoe is scheduled to be released in February 2011 but it has yet to be confirmed. Is this shoe a must have for you? Let us know!
Photos of what looks to be the Air Jordan 7 Premio of the Bin 23 Collection have found the internet. The only question is whether or not this shoe will actually be released. If so, the shoe would be the 4th shoe of the Bin 23 Collection, along with the 9's, 13,s and 2's. We'll keep you posted but in the mean time what do you think about em? Let us know.
Another holiday, another classic Air Jordan release. It has been rumored since Mid-Summer that the "Cool Grey" Air Jordan 11 would be retroed this upcoming holiday season but now it has been confirmed. A year to the day after the epic release of the "Spacejams" Jordan will be releasing the highly coveted "Cool Grey" colorway on Thursday, December 23rd, 2010. Personally, I don't feel the release is nearly as monumental as last year's "Spacejams" but maybe that's just me. What do you think? Let us know.

The highly anticipated "Eggplant" 1/2 Cent, which is the 5th colorway of the shoe, is scheduled for release on Saturday, October, 30th 2010. I have reason to believe that the shoe may be released early as I have received word from multiple retailers that they already have them in stock, more than a month early, but are not yet able to sell. However a full size run is now available at Pick Your Shoes Get your pair first!
Kevin Kolb raised his fist in the air all day yesterday but it was not out of celebration for himself but for his teammate and once backup quarterback Michael Vick. Vick has taken over the starting QB position with a passion. After being removed from football for one year and trying to get back into the swing of things last year with the Eagles, Vick has emerged as one the hottest players if not thee hottest in the NFL.
Vick took the field yesterday afternoon vs the Jacksonville Jaguars and did much of what he did against the Detroit Lions and that is dominate. Throwing for 291 yards with 3 touchdowns, one of which came with less then 10 seconds in the first half, and rushed for another touchdown to seal his performance.
This will truly be one of the feel good stories of the year. A man on the road to redemption. A man who had everything taken away from him trying to get it all back. I have been a Vick supporter from his days in Atlanta and all the way through his legal troubles. All those who shunned him for his mistakes are just the fuel for him to continue his NFL career as one of the elite QB's in the game.
Philadelphia has a new name now, which I as many others hope stays the same for a good amount of time and that is VICKADELPHIA
Here are highlights from Vick's second start as Philadelphia Eagles QB and 1st since winning the job permanently over Kevin Kolb. He didn't disappoint with 4 TD's including one rushing in a 28-3 victory over the Jaguars. Watch him work!
What's Good? Through the struggles Bo and I encountered when trying to expand our network we reached out to bloggers, rappers etc. to help elevate our dreams. When with question I asked them for help and received no response. Personal networking is the key to keep all businesses running SUCCESSFULLY. This is the true lesson of attending college. You can be an over-achiever in every class but if you know no one or become the innovator, your 160 thousand dollar education is wasted. Here is a video Bo stumbled upon that exemplifies our spirit at NC.....It's a Lifestyle!
Karmaloop TV presents this video from Fashion's Night Out NYC 2010 at the BBC Store in Soho. The video features an interview of Pharrell and N.E.R.D., including a live performance with guest appearances by Chris Brown, Christian Rich, and Famlay. This is just a preview of what you missed!

Air Jordan 13 French Blue/University Blue-Flint Grey $160
I know this video is little outdated but this song is so relative to everyone. Trying to run away from someone that has peice of your nerve is the hardest thing. This video is so funny trying to explain just that. Big Ups to Maroon 5!
The Air Jordan II Lavender colorway is designed by Vashtie (shown above) and is the first Air Jordan shoe designed by a female. The shoe is set to release on Saturday, October 2nd, 2010 and will be a limited It features a lavender suede design with dark purple accents and a metallic silver sole. The Lavender Air Jordan II gives a much more feminine feel than we are used to from Jordan brand.
What's Good? Well, Just when you thought nobody was going to make out of my hood (Gaza City, East New York) along comes Corey Bravo. Regardless of all the speculations over his head, I am happy to see some success is coming out of my building. I said when I left I wasn't coming back either...so I guess this post is a little more personal. I send my condolences to you and the fam.
Well it's that time again...November's Children always support up and coming artist every month. Finesse AKA@Cam_Major FINALLY drops the mixtape for 'No Applause Needed'. Atlanta's own has been dropping tunes every now and again to keep the listeners waiting. Tomorrow he has an interview with WSJU radio with Tim da Greek to break down his new mixtape.
What's Good? Finally! Kendrick Lamar has finally dropped O.D. the EP. Please go out and Support the young artist. Remember we allow everyone into stardom. Album available on Itunes. Lamar's new EP sets a chilled toned with a reminiscent feeling of the true Californian style of rap. He delivers a small but diverse selection of tracks on O.D.. Beyond the few tracks that leaked he has good songs such 'Alien Girl' and 'She Needs Me' featuring Lameirt Park's legend Dom Kennedy and Murs. If you want true feel good music this young M.C. has definitely delivered.
What's Good? Listen people October 26th can't come any sooner. Joey is going to shut shit down this time around. This guy is so phenominal that he will forever be swept under the rug by this shady industry. An industry who disables the minds of those who still want to snap and pop.

Wassup yall, here is a dope sports write up on Pat White by the #TeamNC homie @pablocaspcobar . Check it Out:
Former West Virginia star quarterback Patrick White is going from the Grid Iron to the baseball diamond. White was released this pass week by The Miami Dolphins who had drafted him in 2009 after drooling over the possibility of using him with Ronnie Brown in their Wildcat Offense. Many scouts said after a dismal rookie campaign, the only way the former Mountaineer could remain apart of the Dolphins or just in the NFL was to switch his position to a more flex spot such as wide receiver. White declined and felt that it was time to move on even though he still has the desire to play in the National Football League.
Long Awaited since his signing... Let us know what you all think about it...
