The Nike Blazer Low ND’s are part of Nike’s spring/summer line for 2010. The shoes have hit the stores at Mita in Japan but have yet to be released in the US. I’m feeling the khaki with orange laces color scheme more than the green with navy laces but Nike is also expected to release this shoe in several other color variations. To see more pics, hit more.

It has been announced that Drake’s highly anticipated debut album Thank Me Later will be officially released on June 15, 2010. I expect most of the album to be leaked by early May and OTNS will surely be on top of that. The full tracklist can be seen after the jump as well as Drake’s first time performing the track “Over,” which he did last week in Acapulco.

2010 Final Four Is Set 03/28/2010

While most people’s brackets are in shambles, it is hard to stay mad when we have been blessed with the excitement that March Madness has brought us this year. Michigan State, Butler, West Virginia and Duke have all punched tickets to play in next week’s Final Four in Indianapolis. No doubt that hindsight is 20/20 but it is now pretty easy to see why these four teams reached the Final Four. Michigan State made it to the finals last year with much of the same team still intact and in the last 12 years, Tom Izzo has made a remarkable six Final Fours. Butler had a 20 game win streak entering the tournament and has not lost a game since December. West Virginia was ranked #5 in the country, won the Big East conference tournament (arguably the toughest conference tournament) and has a star in Da’Sean Butler who is capable of single-handedly carrying his team. Duke has three experienced players who average more then 17 points per game and a coach who boasts 11 Final Four appearances.

Sitting Front Row To Watch Rafael Nadal Pick His Wedgie After Every Point 03/28/2010

So the good times keep on rollin’ down in the 305. Today, my good friend Evan was able to hook-up some very, very good tickets to the Sony Ericsson Tennis Tournament. In typical fashion, we were late, so only stayed for a couple matches. First up was the crowd’s favorite, Rafael Nadal, up against David Nalbandian of Argentina. It was certainly far from an easy win for Nadal, although the scorecard (6-7, 6-2, 6-2) would seem to suggest otherwise. If you think Nadal looks athletic on TV, it was pretty incredible watching this guy run around the court. No matter what Nalbandian sent his way, Nadal seemed ready to return it. Perhaps even more interesting, was the way Nadal seemed to pick his ass crack after every point, and if you look at the picture above closely enough, you can see him doing it there. But seriously, he’s a great competitor and deserves the love he gets from his fans, just check out the flip videos and pics after the jump to see why… (more…)

A Trip To Miami’s ULTRA Music Festival 2010 03/28/2010

So this week we’re all taking a much-deserved spring break. I went down to Miami for a week of relaxation, and of course: Ultra Music Festival. This is by far the most intense, incredible spectacle I’ve ever encountered. While it was a two-day festival, I only attended Saturday where there was a sold out crowd of easily over 100,000 people. Most of whom were in costume and by my educated guess, on copious amounts of drugs. If I learned one thing from the festival it’s this: never get between a Techno Viking and his Eastern European rave whore. As I was making my way through the crowd last night, I took a step in front of this Techno Viking and got a sudden but firm German shove aside. But anyway, we saw some seriously good music, among which: Benny Benassi, Swedish House Mafia, ATB and more. Hit the jump for a 4-minute compilation video and some pictures of the freak shows and spectacles we saw along the way…

A quick note for all of our loyal readers. The best time of the year has arrived, although a tad late, in which we take a break from our busy lives to enjoy life itself in the most relaxing manner possible.  TRJ and myself are departing to Acapulco, Mexico in a matter of hours and I thought it would only be appropriate to notify all of you, so when your wondering where all the new music releases are you will understand why it is not up. Our fellow bloggers MaxB & ZG are currently in two of Americas sin cities being Miami and Las Vegas. We will be back in a week to catch up on all that we missed.

These homies give off a Theophilus London vibe with their slamming electro beats, however way slower than TL. Mansions On The Moon comprise Ben Hazlegrove, Ted Wendler and Lane Shaw.  They are currently working on a mixtape with productions from big names including Shae (N-E-R-D), Chad Hugo (The Neptunes), Malice (Clipse), STS9 and Christian Rich. I have no idea when the mixtape is set to drop, but definatley stay tuned because these guys are super talented.

Planning On Going To Bonnaroo? – Do It In Style 03/26/2010

The lineup for this year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival is simply ridiculous.  Pretty much all my favorites are on the card, including: Jay – Z, Phoenix, The xx, Kid Cudi, Nas, The National, and many more.  A nutty new ticket package was just introduced called Bonnaroo Total Access – Here’s the deal:

For a hefty $18,500 (or $2,350 per person for 8 people), you get some pretty ill perks:

An on-stage viewing area for main stage performances, exclusive viewing areas for all peripheral stage shows, private showers and bathrooms, 24/7 golf cart service, an on-site concierge, open bars and hospitality tents scattered around the grounds, and pre-stocking of the bus with your favorite goodies.  It may be a touch expensive, but it definitely beats sleeping next to some candy-flipping grimey ass hippies. (Which is still pretty chill)  To check out a video on the ticket package, hit more: (more…)

Today, Phoenix released a free, live, 8-song album from when they were touring in Australia.  It includes a 10 minute ‘Love Like A Sunset’ that climaxes harder than a dude on Viagra. I’ve over-played the shit out of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, but these live tracks put a fresh new spin on the hottest tracks.  It downloads into an easy zip file that you can just drag into your iTunes.  Dank… Hit more for the download link (more…)

MGMT has released its new album Celebration via an online stream on their website.  They say on their site that the album leaked and they wanted you to hear it from them first.  Now, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this album is fucking trash.  Sorry MGMT, but this new shit simply sucks the D.  None of it is catchy, and none of it has any solid hooks.  You can judge for yourself by clicking here.

In unrelated news,  two new songs are available as a stream or pay-to-download off Broken Social Scene‘s hyped up Forgiveness Rock Record which I posted about here and here.  The two new songs are equally as good as the first single they released called “World Sick.”  I highly recommend checking these two new tracks out by clicking here

HBO’s drama series, The Wire is arguably one of the greatest dramatic television shows ever. Thankfully, creator David Simon and company are back at it with their newest drama show titled Treme. Treme explores the lives of several struggling musicians and other New Orleans locals in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The show is titled Treme because it tries to capture and envision the working class neighborhood in the Mid-City district area of New Orleans in which citizens such as musicians, chefs and other residents try to rebuild their lives. The show will be an hour long each week beginning with an 80-minute pilot airing Sunday, April 11, 2010. The cast will star Steve Zahn, Oscar-nominated actress Melissa Leo, John Goodman and Wendell Pierce AKA “Bunk,” the hilarious and cynical detective from The Wire. To see a trailer for Treme, hit more. (more…)

So the leaks off Drizzy’s freshman LP, Thank Me Later, keep on coming. This one is called “Shut It Down,” and while Drake really slows it down on some R&B shit, I’m definitely feeling this joint. The album isn’t due out until May but I’d expect a couple more songs to hit the blogs before then. At this rate we can just go ahead and thank him now.

Just Blaze TV provides us with this coverage. Should come as no surprise to see these two shooting hoops in Eminem’s neck of the neighborhood. As previously rumored in October, JB will be laying most of the groundwork for Relapse 2. Do take notice to the white stuff that accumulates in the corners of your mouth when  you have real bad cotton mouth on Just Blaze‘s mouth at the end of the video.

After HOV and Jeezy brought down the United Center last night, they decided to rage at The Shrine in Chicago. MaxB and I spoke of making the last minute move down to the Chi, but things didn’t work out to say the least. Apparently LBJ didn’t let anything get in his way to see the show, let alone make moves to the club. The Cavs play the Bulls tonight at 8pm CST and I would not be surprised to see Jay-Z, Jeezy and others sitting court side. Other guest appearances include Derrick Rose, Hakim Warrick, Antawn Jamison and plenty of other NBA players.  Hit the jump to see more pictures and a video from the evening.
