Adidas Busenitz (Skateboarding)

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2009 by RMJ

Not to counter our previous post with P-Rod (that was beautifully done), Nike SB seems to have a few evident competitors. Not only Converse (can you call it comp, if Nike owns Converse?) but, the brand with 3 stripes decided to make their mark in the skate community and they are doing a hell of a Job.  Recreating classics with skate-spacific additions, it didnt take much for RMJ to gravitate towards the lifestyle friendly line. Move over Nike SB, as ive always said…Nike isnt the only brand that created classics!  The pair that really caught my attention was the Adidas Busenitz. I dont skate so I couldnt give you the breakdown on how they wear, but the brand + athlete connection to create a nostalgic model, spoke volumes for me (I played soccer for more than half my life). Soccer inspired infused with skate…lifestyle for me. Couldnt ask for anything better…

DC has alot of talent to offer. Whether it be talented mc’s, singers, artists, photographers or designers. I mean, you name it we got it.

Kingpin Slim aka The Kitchen Magician is one of those talented mc’s, who has been making some noise in the city for some years now. He’s done a great job keeping himself relevant in the streets from mixtapes, street singles and much more. He first caught my attention by being the first DC rapper featured on the infamous “Unsigned Hype” section of The Source magazine in their 200th issue.

He is now Beaming Up all over DC and the east coast, with the hit single “Powder for the Babies.”


Check it ou,t enjoy, leave some feed back.

And like we been saying, DC GOT NEXT!
