Nike SB “1990” Pack


Nike SB recently linked up with 2 Cincinnati skate shops on a pair of dunks commemorating Cinci’s World Series win in 1990. That year the final series came down to the Oakland A’s and the Reds, Cinci would go on to sweep Oak-town with ease serving as one of the most devastating World Series’ in recent (semi) history. Both kicks are suited in each teams colors with the high dressed in A’s green & yellow, while the low is dressed in Red’s colors with champion gold linings. History buffs will appreciate the American flags on each heel paying homage to the beginning of the Gulf War which coincided with the World Series. These are available now at Familia skatshop in Uptown, or click the link below to order them via Rock City Kicks.

Both nights are already sold out a full month ahead of the date, people looking to catch E-40 or G-Eazy in Minneapolis will need to opt for Craigslist or Facebook.

RUFF ÐR∆FT just released this fresh beat yesterday and it hasn’t left our thoughts yet.

The beat bumps all the way to the end as it continuously builds and changes directions throughout. Stay tuned for more form the artist and feel free to cop the track for a $1.

Fresh Off The Boat w/ Eddie Huang: The Bay


A couple of days ago, we finished part 3 of Fresh Off The Boat: London; now we’ve decided to throw up part 1 of The Bay area’s trilogy. In the above episode, Eddie Huang takes us rabbit hunting with the East Bay Rats motorcycle club. Anyone with a weak stomach should be warned, this episode has a couple of hard to watch scenes. The club shows the slaughtering process, in an effort to give people a feel for how disconnected we are from skinning and cleaning the animals we eat. Peep part 1 above and stay tuned for the next installment.
