In case you haven’t heard, this is the 10th Anniversary of the Doernbecher Freestyle Program from the Nike x Doernbecher Children’s Hospital coalition. Making it’s first appearance is the Nike Air Foamposite One “Doernbecher”. Designed by 14-year-old Elija Diggins, the upper features a clash of black and red complimented with a smiley face logo created out of the designer’s initials. The “Doernbecher” Foamposite will certainly be one of the hottest releases of the fall, stay tuned to Jasper Downey for the latest release information.

Supposedly at some point this year, we’re all gonna get blessed with the release of Schoolboy Q’s Oxymoron album. It’s been turned in and once they clean up some sample clearance issues the good folks over at TDE will give us a release date. Until then they let leak another track from the album. Its title pretty much describes it better than any half-witted blogger can, myself especially.
Cleveland’s own King Chip and dope rapper extraordinaire Pusha T throw verses down with Kid Cudi handling hook duties on the highlight track from King Chip’s 44108 mixtape which released earlier this month. You can definitely hear Cudi’s influence in the near-haunting yet distinctively chill production. And Pusha’s verse just further convinces me that his upcoming “My Name Is My Name” LP might actually be the album of the year like he keeps saying it is. Shit, if it’s as good as any given Clipse album it’s still borderline classic.
Taking some cues from Chance The Rapper’s Acid Rap jam, U.K. song bird Elli Ingram and her producer Felix Joseph have crafted a soulful ode to every musician’s favorite muse. I can’t speak for anyone else but I could listen to a woman with a British accent sing to me about getting high preeeeeetty much all day every day. I am a simple man with simple taste.
Today marks the release of The Weeknd’s official debut album (the last release was a re-release of three mixtapes fyi) Kiss Land. To even attempt to describe what a masterpiece it is would take all the life force I have at the moment so I’ll save that for another day. In the meantime, check out my personal favorite track off the LP, Adaptation. The main reason I’ve been such a fan of The Weeknd is his poetic way of describing the party scene for young, drug-loving twenty-somethings in a way that highlights all the fun parts but presents all the issues that come with them. Addiction? Check. Trust issues? Check. Fucking up perfectly good relationships with perfectly good people for the sake of one more night out? CHECK. In the end it’s a life you either grow out of or adapt to and lemme tell ya, growing takes a helluva lot more time.
