|A new version of the Nike Air Royal high top sneaker has released this week. The Royal Lite comes in a new perforated suede version. Light grey suede always looks nice and thankfully they did not do much with the upper, to keep it all clean. Proper has the sneaker in stock now. |

|Beginning with the tag in the early 1990s, L’ATLAS went on to study Arabic calligraphy with classic and modern masters in Morocco, Egypt and Syria, taking particular inspiration from traditional Kufic calligraphy – the oldest calligraphic form of the Arabic scripts. The artist’s work has evolved towards a nameless writing which unites elements of painting and the tag with calligraphy.|
The exhibition Punitions runs through May 28, 2011 at Berlin’s Skalitzers Contemporary Art gallery and features a series of paintings inspired by the punishments of contemporary graffiti and the traditional form of Kufic calligraphy.

|Time to break through the beige and let history do the talking. That is exactly what Seventh Letter’s Saber offers in his new art exhibition opening May 5th. Debuting at the Opera Gallery in New York City, Saber shares with us his “The American Graffiti” artwork. The main focus of his work is the color and life that graffiti brings to a city even after it has been painted over. As a matter of fact the time period at which the paint starts to chip away is what Saber chooses to capture. |
Saber goes on to explain his method and passion for art in his promotional video by Willie T. The film shows Saber using his bare hands to get the right affect for the story he is trying to tell. For more on Saber visit saber.com and take a look at the video and tell us what you think.
|Asics and Japanese retailer Gettry get together once again and present for Summer 2011 the collaborative Double Clutch MIL sneaker. The high top sneaker comes in a military green colorway with camo side panels and orange highlights. The lining also comes in orange, as well as the second pair of laces. The military inspired sneaker is certainly one of the more exciting styles to come from Asics, outside of their strong running program.|
|Yet another interesting Nike Air Max Light has released for Summer 2011. Featuring a mixed mesh/black canvas with denim finish upper, accents are set in childrens blue on the running sneaker. The colorway is now available exclusively at JD Sports.|

After experiencing the biggest selling debut week of his career with the recent release of his third solo album, Lasers, Lupe Fiasco is ready to open up and go into specific details about his struggle to release the record in XXL’s forthcoming May 2011 issue (Out NOW).Scott Council did the photo shoot for the issue with Lupe and here are some of the pics he took.
“They still can’t understand me. They still don’t get it. They still don’t understand that, even without a hit record, Lupe Fiasco will be just as relevant and just as successful as the dude with the hit record. They just don’t get that.”
|Here are the pictures and footage of Lupe Fiasco at Roseland BallRoom (4/24/2011), Dosage Opened the show and brought the house DOWN, as well as gained about 500 new fans with his electric/energetic/word play/metaphors and crowd presence (yes I'm one of those new fans). Black Milk who is from my second home DETROIT (Stand Up!) came out with energy and lyrical prowess, but because he held his mic way too close to his mouth (PAUSE) the words weren't as clear... but nonetheless he held it down! |
Because I underestimated the opening acts I did not get any video footage (smh).
