There’s plenty to report on as it’s been a while since we spoke. There have been quite a few developments, deaths & down -right dope drops to catch your eye or coax those hard earned funds from your bank account.
Converse “Golf Le Fleur” Spring Collection 2019
Rise up from your winter slumber with some fresh colourways from the GOLF heads. You remember? Rap legend; Tyler, The Creator joined forces with footwear legends Converse to provide the eager masses with the quality “GOLF le FLEUR” collection. The latest offering sees a departure from the loud colourways of the previous collections, favouring the muted creams, blue and beige for that adulting look. Very dope.
Mcabre Brothers – Tell A Friend (Blah Records)
Entirely produced by the UK’s A.H. Fly, Mcabre Brothers is 6-track rap 101 session for your enjoyment. The type of album that will make you want to draw the curtains, lock the door and stay inside for the rest of your life perhaps only leaving to argue loudly with your neighbours and restock the beef super noodles & malinovka. Real UK rap, perfectly depressing and self-deprecating with melancholy production from the mythical A.H. Fly. PERFECT.
Nike Air Max 720
I first saw these on Instagram (YES KISH!) They are super off-key (in true high-end Nike tradition). It seems to have a polarising effect on the sneaker scene. Are they the freshest thing ever? or absolutely shitty? I think we can all agree that these are absolutely dope. Boasting a taller air bubble since the last tallest air bubble, the AM 720 is the result of a truly collaborative effort from the Nike lab with materials & colourway giving the wearer a well rounded experience that also looks really really good.

21 Savage current deportation status
After being seized by American immigration offers Atlanta-based (and as the press hastily-reported), British-born 21 Savage was released from US immigration detention custody after 9 days of incarceration. 21, real name; Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Josep has been relatively quiet regarding his ongoing migration woes. The 26-year old father of three received support from members of the hip hop community during his incarceration with Jay Z actively contributing legal aid. 21 Savage’s most recent album; “I Am > I Was,” spent two weeks at No. 1 before he was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

Hellwana – Phases EP
Czech-based Hellwana released her 5-track “Phases” project. It’s a short & sweet one from the up & coming singer-songwriter. Haunting soul from the soul. The ghostly visuals for “Love Game” set the tone for the impressive release. She’ll be performing in various locations around Prague. Copies of the Phases project available digitally and on super-limited vinyl. So hit her Facebook and get down with the get down.

“404 Freedom Not Found.exe” is a special collaboration with Dubai based
brand LaComeDi & the UK’s HYPEPEACE. They’re recent screenprint front graphics with sleeve design (sewn ribbon) with „Freedom Not Found“ in Arabic script. The high price matches the quality and flavour. A nang print from LDN’s HYPEPEACE camp.
Bas in Prague
Want to log off and step out into the real world? I recommended checking Bas! The excellent booking is thanks to the Colours of Ostrava festival. Its a nice move, bringing the thinking man’s rapper with a couple of really dope projects under his belt. Don’t sleep on this opportunity to see the man in the flesh. His live shows are currently the stuff of legends.
