Juelz Santana, Wale and Meek Mill recently attended an event together. All three of their kicks were dope. Juelz Santana rocked a pair of Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals 2.o Wings sneaker paired with the matching tee-shirt and denim jeans. The JS 2.0 Wings sneaker are labeled the ‘Airforce Flag’. The left featuring bold red stripes and the right housing a blue colorway with white stars. I like how Jeremy Scott always uses his creative ideas to make dope sneakers.
Wale wore a pair of Maison Martin Margiela sneakers paired with grey/black denim jeans and a white tee-shirt. These sneakers are from the spring/summer 2012 collection and feature a metallic faux-leather, a padded velcro strap at the ankle and a lace-up closure at the front.
Meek Mill was sporting a pair of classic construct Timbaland boots, dirty denim jeans and a white-tee shirt.
Meek Mill is really a dream chaser and living his dreams. I am so proud of his success! This past Monday (May 7), Drake kicked off his ‘Club Paradise’ tour in Concord, CA featuring Meek Mill, French Montana, Waka Flocka and 2 Chainz. J. Cole is also on the tour but because of scheduling conflicts, he was not at Monday’s show. Meek latest mixtape Dream Chasers 2did over three-million downloads in two-days. In support of his mixtape and to hold his fans over until he drops his debut LP, Dreams & Nightmares (Aug 28), this Philly native put together a Vlog of his first night on tour. I swear, Meek is the dopest new rapper in the streets. Watch below:
As we all know by now, Rihanna is not shy when it comes to showing her body in front of the camera. In a recent photo shoot with famed photographer Terry Richardson, Ri Ri got cheeky and leggy. Yes, she turned to her back side and showed her butt-cheeks as well as her toned legs. In the shoot, the international pop superstar was wearing denim daisy dukes shorts with a white tank top and heels, holding her crotch and sticking up her middle finger. Peep the pictures below:
Fashion brand Dolo Clothing released some more tee-shirts and tank-top from their Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The brand is available in shopping boutiques such as Goliath,Vinnies, Sammy’s, Shoe Gallery in Miami, Fly Kix in Atlanta and Classique in Los Angeles.
Dolo is a small word filled with tremendous substance. They’re a bold movement that has been crucial to the street culture long before becoming a fashion brand. Dolo is imbedded with the ability to stand strong even with your back against the wall. Yet still have the courage, drive, self belief and confidence to rise to the top. They’re a progressive street brand with a conscience voice aiming to inspire.
A term or identity filled with substance that was created by the streets: Dolo is the signature for having the strength & courage to be an individual amongst followers. The opportunity to be a rebel for a cause, to go against the grain and be who you are, to be self empowered enough to live your life and pursue your dreams & the understanding that anything in life is possible. But it begins with the belief in you! We shall over-come, we are a voice!
