The music video for Day ‘n’ Nite has been added to both the US and Canada stores for $1.49. It’s a clean version (like many videos on iTunes) which is stupid since “stoner” really isn't considered as explicit language. Regardless, it sits at #32 right now for music videos, so you know what to do. Show your support.
Nike Sportswear drops some suede-love with this latest version of the Blazer Mid Premium. The UNLV-esque colorway combines a mostly gray suede upper with a red Swoosh and laces. Bits of the shoe are also wrapped in black including the heel and the bumper surrounding the front of the shoe. Available now at Choko.

"OK this picture is kind of a bigger deal than the content of this post. Of course it’s Damon Dash, me and Kanye, but this is the first time I met Kanye, right when he asked me to come on tour with him. Dame was actually trying to get me to DJ for Samantha Ronson but Kanye snatched me. This picture has never appeared online. Straight out the shoebox. (May, 2004)
Anyway, the reason for this post is I wanted to link an article on Damon Dash written by this guy Combat Jack. Not sure who he is, he says he “repped” Dame in the mid-90’s. Just by coincidence there’s also that video that surfaced today of Dame spazzing out… but the article is much more interesting. Watching a guy spazz is pretty one-dimensional. I actually have a lot of respect for Dame and am a bit fascinated with the early days of Roc-A-Fella since I run a label myself. So, read up!"
This is great for Jamie Foxx.
Its just really funny to think about how far he has came...
LoL... I had to post "Booty Call" because its been on TV a lot lately.
And who could forget the lovely Wonda from "In Living Color" below...
Today Performance Designed Products (PDP) unveiled the latest addition to their line of Energizer-branded game controller charging solutions with the Energizer Induction Charging System for Wii. Part of the Power & Play line of Energizer products, the Induction Charging System brings a sleek, minimalist design and contact-free charging to the Wii. Users can charge up to two Wiimotes simultaneously without having to remove their protective silicone cases. The Induction Charging System can be propped up with an included stand or lay flat on any surface. Charging status is indicated by two built-in LED lights, which glow orange during the recharging process and green when the Wiimote is ready for play.
At the beginning of the year, we showed you one of Nike’s upcoming hybrid releases dubbed the Nike Air Hoop Structure. Upon the first look of this unique sneaker, many of you labeled it as one of the better hybrid releases for 2009. With that said, we have now spotted the first colorway set to drop in November 2009.
The Nike Air Hoop Structure is a hybrid of the Nike Air Structure Triax ‘91 with basketball sneaker qualities. At a first glance, it seems to possess some qualities of the Air Jordan VI. This particular colorway is made predominately of a grey base with minimal white details on the tongue and sole. Other features include a metallic silver swoosh, mesh side panels and a visible Air sole unit. As stated earlier, check for the Nike Air Hoop Structure in November. Click here to view detailed photos.

If you like what you see, head out to your local Footaction retailer now and look for them.

**Maybe one day...**
Calling the American prison system “a national disgrace,” Senator Jim Webb (D-Virginia) has vowed to tackle this problem head on, starting with a rational look at our entire criminal justice system – including the War on Drugs and the possible legalization of marijuana.
“If you go back to 1980 as a starting point, I think we had 40,000 people in prison on drug charges, and today, we have about 500,000 of them,” the first-term Virginia lawmaker tells CNN, reiterating his call for a high-level blue ribbon commission to address this issue. “With so many of our citizens in prison compared with the rest of the world, there are only two possibilities: Either we are home to the most evil people on earth or we are doing something different – and vastly counterproductive.”
Webb’s statement would appear to support the small, but growing, group of lawmakers in Washington who have recently endorsed marijuana legalization, including Reps. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.), Jim McDermott (D-Wash.), Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and Ron Paul (R-Texas).

To finish it off, this sneaker is complimented with a white midsole and neon orange outsole. As stated earlier, check for this Nike Dunk High Premium in the fall of 2009.

Thanks to Nike, Joakim Noah has a reason to bring back that NBA Draft Day Seersucker suit when the Chicago Bulls finish off the Celtics. Nike has created some matching red Seersucker Air Trainer 1’s that surfaced last week and has now arrived at additional retailers.
The Nike Air Trainer 1 Seersucker is the second Seersucker rendition from Nike in as many months, if you recall we saw the Air Max 1 drop last month. The Air Trainer 1 gets a treatment of fine pinstripes to make up the red Seersucker effect. The usually Velcro strap has been ditched in favor of a suit-like button strap for a nice touch.

It would mark the first time Apple has produced a version of the iPhone for a CDMA wireless network, which is different from AT&T's GSM technology. Vodafone, co-owner of Verizon Wireless, already sells the iPhone in Europe.
The New York-based telecom entered into "high-level" discussions with Apple management a few months ago, when CEO Steve Jobs was overseeing day-to-day business, these sources say. They declined to be named because they aren't authorized to speak publicly.
Jobs is on medical leave until June, but the conversations are continuing, they say. Apple declined to comment.AT&T (T) has exclusive U.S. distribution rights to the iPhone into 2010, though specifics aren't known.

Round 1 Selection:
ALEX MACK - CENTER - CALIFORNIA
Mack displays great strength and comes from a wrestling background, which allows him to play with great balance. He also possess the necessary ability to sink his hips and reset his feet when going up against bigger interior defensive tackles, and he shows excellent hand use.
The Cleveland Browns made three trades in the first round of the NFL draft, just not the one everyone expected.
Eric Mangini began his first draft as Cleveland's coach by striking a deal with his old bosses, sending the No. 5 overall pick to the New York Jets, his former team, who took USC quarterback Mark Sanchez. In return, Cleveland got the No. 17 pick, a second-rounder (No. 52) and three Jets: defensive end Kenyon Coleman, safety Abram Elam and quarterback Brett Ratliff.
The Browns then dropped two spots in a trade with Tampa Bay (No. 19), which also sent Cleveland a sixth-round pick (No. 191).
Mangini then swapped the No. 19 pick for Philadelphia's at 21 and a sixth-rounder (No. 195).ROUND 2 Selections:
BRIAN ROBISKIE - WIDE RECEIVER - OHIO STATE
The truth is Robiskie might have already reached his potential. He doesn't have top-end speed and is already very polished. That being said, he's a smooth route-runner with good size (6-foot-2, 209 pounds) and reliable hands. In other words, he's capable of contributing immediately.
MOHAMED MASSAQUOI - WIDE RECEIVER - GEORGIA
Massaquoi has some limitations as far as home-run hitting ability goes. However, he does an excellent job lowering his hips and creating separation out of his breaks. He also plays with a fearless attitude and possesses the concentration and reliable hands to make the tough catch in traffic
DAVID VEIKUNE - DEFENSIVE END - HAWAII
Veikune brings an excellent combination of speed along with athleticism to fit the role of a 3-4 outside linebacker. He can provide pressure off the edge as a pass-rusher and has the strength to be effective holding his ground against the run.

Universal Pictures' Land of the Lost, coming to theaters on June 5th. During the visit, we talked to stars Will Ferrell, Danny McBride and Anna Friel, and saw many of the incredible sets.
In the Brad Silberling-directed comedy adventure, based on the classic TV series created by Sid & Marty Krofft, Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall who gets sucked into a space-time vortex and spat back through time. Way back. Now, Marshall has no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in an alternate universe full of marauding dinosaurs and fantastic creatures from beyond our world - a place of spectacular sights and super-scaled comedy known as the Land of the Lost. Sucked alongside him for the adventure are crack-smart research assistant Holly (Friel) and a redneck survivalist (McBride) named Will. Chased by T-Rex and stalked by painfully slow reptiles known as Sleestaks, Marshall, Will and Holly must rely on their only ally - a primate called Chaka (Jorma Taccone) to navigate out of the hybrid dimension.

Sidenote: I hope I get to meet Danny Danko & smoke with him one day!
Fresh off the smoking hot 4/20 release of his debut album, Asleep in the Bread Aisle, college-lover Asher Roth spent a little quality time with his favorite periodical, inviting the HIGH TIMES film crew to a private shindig held at an undisclosed location overlooking the bright lights of New York City.
“Smoking marijuana brings me back down to Earth,” Asher tells HIGH TIMES Senior Cultivation Editor Danny Danko, after complimenting him on the local produce of the Baked Apple. “Some people think pot hinders your thoughts, but for me, it just kind of straightens me out.”
Since releasing his hit single “I Love College,” Roth’s been soaring to new heights as his party anthem became the official “torch song” of Spring Break 2009. Don’t worry though, Asher tells us he’s smoking plenty of potent Kush to keep his head straight.

Okay... At the beginning of the 2008-2009 season, hands down Kobe Bryant was the best player in the world. After 82 games this year... I don't think I can say that anymore. The maturity & growth Lebron has showed is truly inspiring. It seems like every aspect of his game that people used to criticize him for, he has fixed and truly become a better ALL AROUND player. His jumper is on point. He is closing games out... AND he was BY FAR the MOST improved Defensive player this season. And honestly if you ask me, thats what makes him just as good as Kobe if not better now. Regardless, they are both AMAZING players and I truly enjoy watching both of them play the game. With that being said... GO CAVS!
Nike Sportswear and Nylon Magazine have linked up to created a pack of Nike Dunk Highs. The Nylon Mag x Nike Dunk His are, of course, done in a Nylon upper. All five colorways feature a fluorescent shade of nylon in Orange, Green, Pink, Yellow, and Blue with a tonal Nylon logo hit done in leather across the upper. The Nylon Magazine logo also pops up at the tongue. No official release date yet. Once we receive the info, it will be posted.

"Today was a great day in the life of GL The Great! I had the honor of going on 106 & Park alongside Kanye & my concept was embraced!

I thank every city that honors GLC & I ask if I can grow with you as well? My attitude is gratitude & thank you! Rocsi asked “What the game was missing?” I replied, “I have arrived!”"
