Following up on our recent preview of the gold pair in the Undefeated x PUMA 24k collection, PUMA gives us a closer look into the fifth and final pair. The shoe features mirror gold leather, matching midsole stitching and a perforated formstrip. In addition to the material upgrade the shoe also has a studded Undefeated “five strikes” logo piercing through the outer collar. In contrast to the suede silhouettes in the 24K Collection, this mid will be extremely limited and will only be sold in Undefeated stores: with 24 pairs available at the Tokyo location, 24 pairs at the La Brea L.A. store, and an additional 24 pairs split up between the other three Undefeated U.S. locations. Release date is slated for Saturday, February 7th, 2009.

Take a look at the latest Dunk High SB. It comes with a navy/red suede upper and a yellow stars all-over embroidery. The stars have a certain hand made look to themselves, which we like. The shoe is inspired by the Glen Quagmire character from Family Guy. The white/gum sole is a nice finish.
The Nike Dunk High SB is now available at Sneak.

Kid Cudi - The new kid on the block talks to Flavour
As this is the trendsetters issue, Flavour had to introduce you to Cleveland rapper Kid Cudi, who is setting the pace for a whole new sound. His music fuses dance, rock, rnb and hip hop and he is currently the hottest new hip-hop artist in the US, and has signed to Kanye West’s label after catching the Love Lockdown artist’s attention with the release of his mixtape A Kid Named Cudi. The singer features on Kanye’s latest album and has been supporting him on tour.
The artist whose real name is Scott Mescudi is finishing up his debut album for a spring 2009 release. With backing from Kanye and a knack for creating story-filled, feel good and emotionally conscious records, he’s set for big things. Flavour met up with him for a quick chat in London.
Who are you?
I’m just a man with the gift of song.
Nothing more, nothing less.
How old are you?
I am 24 years old. I’ll be 25 on January 30th. People tell me I should make up an industry age like say I’m 22 or something.
F**k that, I’m 24. So what?
What’s Kid Cudi about? Do you have a mission statement?
Changing the world.
Where are you based right now?
I’m based in New York because this is where I feel the most at home as far as being comfortable goes and just having all around good vibes. I got my peoples here.

Drama talks about the new Gangsta Grillz album, and introduces his new single which you can grab below.
New York City is increasing its marketing spend this year to bring visitors to the Big Apple. The effort includes a new, high-tech visitor's center, a new tourism Web site, deals with Google and Travelocity, and new regional tourism offices. New York City & Company (NYC & Co.), funded both privately and by city government, handles visitor and tourism marketing.
The new 2,000-square-foot visitors center--a $1.8 million renovation between office buildings and a restaurant on Seventh Avenue at 53rd Street--opened Wednesday with Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other dignitaries on hand to talk up the city's tourism program and demonstrate a row of four-foot wide touch-sensitive interactive tables and interactive kiosks.
Developed by Google and featuring Google Earth technical magic, the tables allow visitors to search the city and surrounding boroughs digitally with a virtual map that can be dragged and expanded. Users can pull up points of interest, create an itinerary and save it to any handheld device or a special disc by placing it on a demarcated circle at the table's center, then print, save or email it. Digital agency New York-based Huge handled the program and the new site, http://www.nycgo.com/.

You might be sick of all the LiL Wayne songs but the leak gods threw this our way tonight. Even a garbage stan gets a steak.
Update: “Filet Mignon” is actually titled “Every Girl” and is the first single off the Young Money album. Produced by Tha Bizness.
Well I can’t say I didn’t see this coming after Charles said them lines in the battle with Serius Jones about Rhymefest.. Rhymefest is going in on son in this “SuperSonic (Chucky Cheese)” record.. I wonder if Chuck will respond, this isn’t Soulja Boy either.. Anyways, look out for that Rhymefest mixtape The Manual coming really soon.. NMC, ya know.. Big shout out to Rhymefest and Chuck release that battle footage stop keeping it!!
DOWNLOAD: Rhymefest - SuperSonic (Chucky Cheese)
UPDATE BELOW: Charles Hamilton's Response via his BLOG.
Situation is simple: a sensitive lyricist is upset at a random punchline that he wasn't even there to hear. I'm glad it isn't SB, but its not really a step up.
I offer the same resolution to this old ass child. Because we spoke. Leave me alone, or be faced with a psychodelic, unholy lyrical response that will scar even your forefathers' viewpoint on the way your life has been lived up until the point you decided to engage in lyrical combat.
And I'm not even mad.
Fans, citizens of earth, could now be the time that a public sacrifice of a useless old human be witnessed?
You decide. Meanwhile, I'm smiling and in a good mood about life...
I love women. Hate bitch ass niggas
Following-up closely on the heels of the recently featured Air Jordan I High Premier Infrared comes another limited release for February. The nice pewter finish meshes well with a high-cut version of the Air Jordan I. A bit of color can be seen via the Max Orange. Available starting January 31st, 2009 at select Air Jordan dealers including Lowtex.
**CONGRATS Andrew. His site has a lot of influence in how set up SLABUP.com. Keep holdin' down for Chicago... Only dude I know who holds it down for his city no matter what! If its not Chicago related, ITS NOT WORTHY! LoL. ATTENTION ARTISTS - GET YOUR FEATURE GAME UP!!! Hahaha.**
As many of you may know, I kind of shy away from doing interviews and press on myself, just because I've always been more interested in building FSD as a brand, then trying to make Andrew Barber pop. But when Miles Raymer from the Chicago Reader approached me about doing a story on myself and Fake Shore Drive, I couldn't turn it down. Miles shadowed me at the Mikkey Halsted "Internet on Lock" party last week and did an interview with me shortly thereafter - he pieced together this feature in his Sharp Darts section and published it today. You can either check the article online, or pick up the Reader on newsstands or in the various FREE reader boxes around the city. Thanks again to all the readers, fans, Miles and Saverio for their support.
Like most hip-hop events, the party Mikkey Halsted threw on inauguration day to celebrate the launch of his new Web site was awash in networking—cards were exchanged, demos pressed into hands, phone numbers typed into Blackberries. The rappers and producers in attendance included quite a few with at least modest national profiles (GLC, No I.D., Naledge of Kidz in the Hall, Mic Terror), and together they formed a cross section of Chicago’s diverse hip-hop scene, which makes room for commercially inclined gangsta types, conscious backpackers, and skinny-jeans-wearing so-called hipster-hoppers. And almost everybody there took a second to swing by and say what’s up to the scruffy-looking white dude whose blog, Fake Shore Drive, has become a vital nerve center for that scene...

VIDEO: "Interior crocodile alligator. I drive a Chevrolet movie theater."
Internet memes are kinda like wildfires: some asshole throws a cigarette butt out his car window, then he turns on the news the next day and the entire state is being evacuated and all the asshole can do is pull an Urkel voice and go, "Did I do that?" In this metaphor, as in most metaphors involving assholes, I am that asshole.In September of 2007, a friend of mine played me a mixtape track by an up-and-coming Cleveland rapper known as Chip tha Ripper. It was an uncommonly hilarious freestyle packed with bizarre boasts and amazing taunts:
"30s on my Chevrolet call me supa dupa
Garage like Roots, I got more whips than Kunta
Riviera sittin' on the Bulls' best hoopa
Y'all still ridin' 20s, y'all some Oompa Loompas"
The greatest line, however, was the very last. Delivered with exaggerated, almost educational enunciation, it was a flamboyant whip boast the likes of which we'd never heard:
"Interior crocodile alligator
I drive a Chevrolet movie theater"
My friend rewound that line and played it over and over. It stuck out as an incredibly satisfying rap lyric, maybe the best couplet of the year: self-contained, perfectly symmetrical, and totally quotable (even if the only screen in my car is a digital clock still stuck on Daylight Saving Time). It handily beats Chamillionaire's analogous "so many screens up in the slab, I'm drivin' a computer lab" in the car-metaphor arena, which is where rap's most heated intellectual battles are fought.

Sony’s achingly slim ZX1 HDTV- which, at 9.9mm, is being called the world’s thinnest production LCD TV - will go on sale in the UK today. The screen, which boasts full 1080p resolution, 3,000:1 contrast ratio and 100Hz refresh rate, will be available in three sizes - 42, 46 and 52-inches - and relies on side-mounted backlighting LEDs for its skinniness.
Creepy but true: researchers at the University of California, Berkley, have managed to create a live remote-control beetle. Using six electrodes hooked up to the beetle’s brain and muscles, and a 1.3g radio module carried on the bug’s back, the flying rhinoceros beetle can be remotely-controlled from a nearby laptop. While the researchers have managed to electrically-control insects before, this is the first time it has been done wirelessly.

Having held the number 1 spot for seven weeks prior to today's chart statistics, Taylor Swift has officially broken the record 50 Cent set in 2005. With his sophomore effort, 50's The Massacre was the previous record holder, after maintaining the top spot for six consecutive weeks. Swift was followed by Beyonce, whose I Am...Sasha Fierce continues to see solid sales numbers. Jamie Foxx, Keyshia Cole and Kanye West continue the weekly trend of trading spots within the top three. Meanwhile, the Notorious Soundtrack slips out of the overall top five rotation, but maintains in terms of Hip Hop/Rap and R&B albums.
R&B reigned supreme again, as Jamie Foxx and John Legend officially surpassed the 500,000 sales mark to earn gold plaques. Foxx was no doubt helped by the fact that no less than three versions of his "Blame it On" surfaced. And Kanye's former protégé, John Legend, can thank a halftime performance spot at the upcoming NBA All-Star competition for raising his already high profile.

In terms of mentors and proteges, Akon pulled off the trifecta. His own album, Freedom , ranks at number 17, while his Konvict Music artists Lady Gaga and T-Pain trail him at the number 20 and 55 spots respectively. Two of Hip Hop's respected veterans, Scarface and Q-Tip eclipsed the 100,000 mark this week. Both artists debuted to strong critical reviews, but have gotten little if any airplay on mainstream radio.
The Southern trio of Lil Wayne, T.I. and Ludacris continue to lead the way with Hip Hop's highest-selling albums. Wayne's Tha Carter III is slowly approaching 3 million units sold, while Tip's Paper Trail has just a shade over 1.6 million units sold. Luda follows, with his gold effort, Theater of the Mind.

According to the Wikipedia entry for Kid Cudi, Cudders next single will be titled Sleepwalking or Spray me or Sleepwalking/Spray me its hard to tell. But this is wikipedia, so it could be very untrue. Has anyone heard anything that could make this true? Let us know in the comments.
Here we feature some detailed pictures of the Nike Dunk SB Mid - Beijing. They were designed by artist Triumvir and drew their inspiration from the view of the city of Beijing from a native’s perspective. The Nike SB Dunk Mid - Beijing sports a very interesting and symbolic design featuring many aspects of Beijing’s culture such as; noodles, traffic, dust, highways and the famous Tienanmen Square. Constructed from a combination of smooth and tumbled leather, they sport a black, white, and grey construction along with yellow contrast stitching on the Nike swoosh. Look for them now at select Nike SB accounts. Also, check out the HD video that allows you to get a 360 degree view.

"Unless you're 3-6 Mafia or Project Pat, it's pretty difficult to pull off rapping about strippers over slightly dubious beats that sound like the opening music to 2 Fast 2 Furious, but Chip tha Ripper manages alright."
