I talked to Penny Hardaway about Foamposites, Drake and stuff

Unbeknownst to most people, I used to watch a good deal of basketball in my early teens and LOVED Penny Hardaway. Well, I got the chance to talk to the veteran point guard about his cult-like status, his love of Lil Wayne + Drake, and those coveted Nike Foamposites. He even said he just might sell the Shooting Stars he rocked at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game a few nights ago.

Where my dogs at/DMX brings the Tunnel to S.O.B.S

I’ve literally waited to see DMX live for 14 years. Earl’s buzzed-about homecoming did not disappoint. 2 hours and a very hoarse voice later, I loved every minute of his set. Check the full write-up for the Village Voice


Another enchanting evening with 2 Chainz/ @bestofbothoffic relaunch

I enjoyed another enchanting evening with 2 Chainz this week. Ostensibly one of the hottest rappers out right now, 2 Chainzzzzz took the stage along with Ace Hood, Gunplay, Vado (slime!) and Asher Roth (ginger!) at Gramercy to kick off the relaunch of Sav + Steve O’s Best of Both Offices.

Who else would I take to this goon fest but the homie Jenn? Trueeeeeeeee (I really like saying that).


What happens when you’re front row at a Mr. MFN eXquire show…

….you learn that wearing a shirt is really not required to gain entrance at an industry event anymore. The lovely Danny Brown (Michigan mayne) and Mr. MFN eXquire (in all forms of undress) took the stage last night at the Beats by Dre pop-up shop in SoHo in celebration of MTV2′s upcoming hip-hop lineup including Yo! Raps Classic Cuts this Sunday at 10pm ET. Good times were had but the real star of the night were Danny’s zonky cowboy Adidas kicks. Love that scamp. Some pics below c/o JD
