Celebs Style: Rappers Rocking Adidas [WHO ROCKED IT THE BEST?]

Adidas was founded in 1948 by Adolf “Adi” Dassler and is a German sports apparel. Over the past two or three decades, the brand became one of the most popular street wear in the Hip-Hop community. I came up with list of five rappers wearing Adidas. Peep my list and vote who rocked Adidas the best below:

Music mogul Jay-Z was spotted in London styling on them lames. Young Hova was heading to his wife Beyonce’s album release party. Hova was wearing a $975 Balmain military cotton shirt, a $130  G-Star Rovic surfer camo shorts; with a pair of Adidas Originals Superstar 2.0 sneakers.

La La’s Full Court Life: La La Gives You FULL Access

Media personality and actress La La Vazquez-Anthony new reality show La La’s Full Court Life, which is a spin-off of her previous show La La’s Full Court Wedding will be premiering tonight Monday (August 22) at 9pm on VH1. Today La La is the “Guest Editor Of The Day” over at Global Grind. In an exclusive interview, La La gave the scoop on her new show, how she’s balancing being a mother, as well as busting her guns with Kelly Rowland. Below are some excerpt:

How do you balance mommy mode from being the business that is Lala?

La La: I’m not doing anything different than what women have been doing for years, balancing being a mom and having a career and being a wife, you just somehow figure it out. You never know how you do it, but you do it. What I’ve learned is I don’t get mad at myself if I don’t if I can’t accomplish everything in one day. We put so much pressure on ourselves that we got to get it done. I won’t say it’s not a lot and it’s not challenging but it comes with the territory and I’m for the challenge, you know I do what I gotta do.

This season on your show, “La La’s Full Court Life” we see you busting your guns with your best friend Kelly Rowland. Can you tell about the thrill of going to the gun range? 

You know what’s funny? She turned 30 and she had a list of things she wanted to do when she turned 30 and that was one of them. We are both very scared of guns, but it was fun. It was definitely an adrenaline rush and something we both said we wanted to do so we definitely had a good time doing that and Kelly is such a girly girl so to see her doing that when you know how her personality really is.
