After releasing his mixtape yesterday, Stalley releases the visual treatment to his single “Party Heart”. The video features emcee and fellow MMG member Rick Ross curbside, and displays cameos from a host of familiar faces including Miami Heat stars Dwayne Wade and LeBron James. In terms of sound the track is characteristically mellow and low-key, in line with the relaxed flows of Stalley and Ross.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 Release Pushed Back to June 2012 – Both Colorways on Same Day

We have checked in with our Nike sources on the release of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneaker. With an expected release date in early April, at least for one of the two colorways that have surfaced so far, people had already started camping out 5 weeks in advance. We have bad news for those folks, as the official release date for the sneaker has now been pushed back to early June 2012.

Not only does it look like the sneaker will release somewhere around June 10th, Nike has also decided to release both colorways, the Wolf Grey and the Black one, on the same day. That is at least what we heard now. Both colors releasing on the same day of course changes everything as most likely no retailer will be getting both – who can stand in line at two stores at the same time? Nobody!

We will keep you posted as we hear more!

The initial concept was to keep the toe of the shoe very clean so it was slim to the foot to give a tailored fit.

The tongue depicts Horus—the falcon-headed ancient Egyptian deity—to represent victory, protection and power. A leather lace lock and solid metal lace tips provide finishing touches on the look of handcrafted luxury.

Horus appears again on the inside of the Velcro strap with hieroglyphics that spell out “YZY.

This early design sketch had a Foamposite-style bootie to protect the foot and hold it in place.

Aape BY A BATHING APE 2012 Spring/Summer Debut Collection

Carte Blanche X Aape A Bathing Ape debut collection

Streetwear giant A Bathing Ape is introducing a new label into its fashion family. Taking the moniker Aape BY A BATHING APE, the range is set to slot in between the current A Bathing Ape and BAPE Kids range, hoping to attract the disposable income of the teenage market. The style and designs reflect a return to an older style BAPE, no more so than in the choice of logo. A lower price range has also been attached, with T-shirts starting at ¥3,990 JPY (approximately $48 USD) and parkas at ¥9,975 JPY (approximately $120 USD). In what is probably the biggest move from the brand since the takeover by I.T, it will be interesting to see in what direction this collection takes the company. The Aape BY A BATHING APE 2012 spring/summer collection will be available soon at BAPE stores worldwide.
