Sneaker Me Dope: Fabolous Rocking Air Jordan Retro 3 “Black Flip”

Rapper Fabolous aka Loso was spotted at the closing of his “3 Kings Coat Drive” in NYC, earlier in the week. The coat drive is apart of Fabolous’ A Fabolous Way Foundation and has already garnered support from other Hip-Hop artists, singers and producers such as D.M.C. of Run-D.M.C, Trey Songz, Ne-Yo and Bangladesh. Loso was styling on them lames in a pair of Air Jordan Retro 3 “Black Flip.” He paired these sneakers with a pair of fitted black jeans, grey sweater, black peak coat, Hermes belt and a Louis Vuitton scarf. I was supposed to be at this coat drive to interview Fabolous but his publicist made a mistake and didn’t send me the confirmation email. We’re scheduling another interview when he get back to NYC. These sneakers features an elephant printed black leather upper with full-grain overlays wrapped around the toe and heel. Metallic silver Jumpman branding on the tongue and heel. The midsole is done in black and sits atop a light grey rubber outsole to finish off the look.

He’s More Than A Thug: Young Jeezy Talks Being In Love, Marriage, Hip-Hop & TM103

Just like popular 90’s rapper Ja Rule said, “every thug needs a lady.” Atlanta’s rapper and self-professed thug Young Jeezy has an emotional side and wants to be loved (Don’t we all. I am looking for my diamond princess Lol). On December 20, Jeezy will be releasing his new album, entitled Thug Motivation 103: Hustlaz Ambition. The Atlanta native recently did an interview for celebrity blogger NecoleBITCHIE site. Jeezy talked about marriage, being in love, emotional Hip-Hop and more. Below are some excerpts:

You have professed several times over that you’re married to the game. Would you ever marry in real life?
It would take a lot. I was put here for a reason. It’s not like I get up and practice how to be Jeezy. I really live this life. And my career, my music, the game, that is my life.  And for me to get married, I’d have to find somebody to ride with me. That takes a lot of balance. This is 24/8. I’m in the studio, or gone a lot. And not to mention that chicks dig me, so it’s hard to find that trust. More importantly, it’s hard to deal with somebody who’s already in love with something else.

Have you ever been in love?
I had a female or two that I thought was down, but over time things change – you start to see the real person and their real motives. So no, I wouldn’t call it love. I thought it was at the time, but I was wrong.

What went wrong?
Some people don’t want to share you. I love being the spokesperson for my people. It’s hard to share me with that. The game is all I’ve ever known since I was like eleven. And it’s been there for me when no female hasn’t…Honestly, half of my life I’ve f-cked up a lot of things because I’m too loyal.

You have a track with Drake, ‘Unforgettable’. And Drizzy’s taking a lot of flack now a days for his brand of ‘Emotional Hip Hop’. What are your thoughts on it? Has Hip Hop gotten too emo? 
Hip Hop has always been emotional. I feel like with me, a lot of my stuff comes across as rough. I speak from stress, I speak from pain, anxiety and so my music comes out real aggressive. But that’s because that’s the emotion I’m sharing. But I’ve always thought my music was emo, I just choose aggressive tracks. But aggressive times cause for aggressive measures. You can try to finesse it but the emotion has always been there, so I think what’s happening now is artists are choosing more finessing tracks. There’s still the same amount of emotion – they may be talking about other things – but what you’re really hearing are softer tracks.
