Put On: MQ x Upper Playground: Montana Colors Artist Can

What up, Graf heads?!?

Upper Playground recently announced a collaborative project with Montana Colors to create artist series Hardcore cans by four artists. The second MTN x UP Limited Edition artist can in the series features the work of graffiti legend MQ.

Angelo Lospinuso from Montana Colors says “somebody may not agree with me, but I think MQ represents the original essence of graffiti, bombing, destroying, getting up, being infamous from the East to the West. It’s not politically correct for me to say that…. but who cares? I love this idea of graffiti and I pay the maximum respect for MQ! It’s an honor to have a dedicated Limited Edition by this timeless Bomber.”

The MTN x UP MQ Limited Edition artist can is available now at Upper Playground retail stores and online on the Upper Playground web store.

Fly Season: Nike Blazer High Premium (Denim)

Mo' of that buttah!!

The above Blazer High started to drop in international doors last month but have slowly started to hit US base retailers now so look out for them at your local Nike dealers. The raw selvage denim is two-toned in a darker and lighter version with contrast stitching to mimic that of premium denim. Also notice the brown Nike emblem on the heel that mimics the hem stitch on a fresh pair of jeans.

Other details include the white and red selvage piping (also seen in the picture on the jean cuffs) and a Levis-esque Nike tag in white and red. The black sole, swoosh, and heel box all provide just enough contrast to make these Blazers some highly-anticipated sneakers. via Extra Butter

Cop This Album: Slaughterhouse - Slaughterhouse


We gotta start biggin' up more albums. Problem is, we just don't hear enough music on albums these days, that make us want to go out and spread that word. That was, until we heard that new Slaughterhouse album. Now if you're into true lyricism and hot tracks, then there's no reason why you shouldn't cop this album.

From start to finish, this album is REALLY one of the best joints we've heard this year, as far as a full length album is concerned. All four MC's really go in on this LP, and that's refreshin', considerin' that "supergroups" aren't always that "super". You want quality Hip Hop that'll outlast the garbage you hear on the radio all day? Then run out and cop this album, people..


Fly Season: G-Shock Collaborations

They get busy!!

G-Shock is not standing still these days and keeps us very busy with one new collaboration after the other. Just like with other brands that get the hang of the collaboration game, some of these coops are great and others less. We will let you be the judge of that.

Today we take a first look at upcomin' collaborative watches with Redman, Todd Jordan, Mr. Cartoon, Globe and LRG. LRG has worked several times already with the brand. The others worked on special watch make-ups and Globe even produced a special sneaker to go along with their G-Shock watch.

We attended the recent G-Shock event that not only showcased these new collaborations, but also saw Kanye West perform live for the crowd. Definitely a memorable night!

Dopeness: Bape Fall/Winter 2009 Bapex II


Bape once again releases new styles for their Bapex watch series. For Fall/Winter 2009 they present the Bapex 2 in three colorways. We're glad they took a more classic approach compared with previous watch releases. Inspired by the Rolex GMT-2, the Bapex 2 comes in black, blue/red and brown, featuring a 24-hour ring.

We say these are pretty damn cool. Get yours!!


Put On: Drake (Fader Magazine)


Just gotta show some quick support for the homie Drizzy, for makin' that new cover of Fader magazine. We also gotta wish the good homie a "get well soon" after injurin' himself last week, while performin' on tour. Look for his debut album, Thank Me Later, to be droppin' sometime late this year.

And go out and cop this issue too, folkers!! 1..


Nice: SV 9 Competizione (C6 Corvette)

Yeah, man!! More whips for the season o' peelin' out!!

Designed to mix American performance with Italian style, the SV 9 Competizione features a unique carbon fiber body which borrows more than a few lines from Alfa Romeo's sexy 8C Competizione. Despite the emphasis on style, the company created useful airflow properties which channel air through the hood and rear ducts to increase brake and engine cooling.

SVMC also went to work under the hood, where they added a revised air intake and a custom-tuned ANSA exhaust which is modeled after the Ferrari Daytona and 599 GTB. These modest tweaks create an additional 14hp, which allows the SV 9 Competizione to be rated at 450 hp and 445 lb-ft of torque. The company estimates this will enable the SV 9 to rocket from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds flat. Other modifications include a specially tuned sports suspension, an enhanced braking system, and Pirelli P-Zero Rosso ultra performance tires.

Like a proper Italian exotic, the SV 9 features a luxurious interior with carbon fiber reinforced seats, Italian leather upholstery, and a choice of burlwood or carbon fiber trim.

Production will be limited to 1,000 units and prices start at $99,995
