When he's not making defensive backs look silly, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is more than likely wearing a pair of great sneakers. Now he has his own pair: the Nike Air Trainer Cruz.

Cruz's sneaker takes cues from past Nike Football models and turns them into a lifestyle design that's perfect for 2015 and beyond. There's a midfoot strap and a midsole that's reminiscent of Bo Jackson's signature series, while there are four colorways —​ Haystack, Wolf Grey, Black/Crimson, and Rush Blue —​ that are set to roll out over the next few months.

Each shoe has "Dance to Greatness" written on the inside of the midfoot strap, while the Black/Crimson pair reads, "In Memory of Mike," which pays tribute to Cruz's father who passed away. There's also a number "3" on the inside of the tongue, paying homage to the firefighter ladder that his father was a part of.

For now, take a look at some detailed photos of the sneakers.

I think they did a pretty good job here... Reminds me of yeezys but with a different vibe.. Im surprised to not see a all red colorway but we'll see..

"Haystack," November 20, $150

Earlier this year, the Hip-Hop gawds blessed us with a snippet of Drake and Beyonce’s collab track “Can I.” While Bey’s groundbreaking performances along with Drizzy’s new music and BEEFS may have cause some to forget the tease of their highly anticipated song, the 6god’s OVO Sound Radio program is reminding us of the tune’s existence.

The show, featured on Apple Music’s Beats 1 station, dropped the full version of the track which will reportedly be feature on Drake’s forthcoming album, Views From the 6.


The Video... What yall think?

Kanye West has a way with words. He's not known for often, if ever, holding back on whatever thoughts cross his mind. In a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the musician-turned-self-proclaimed-designer had an interesting thing to say about 3D printers: He believes they will ruin the fashion industry. During a visit to the Tumo Centre for Creative Technologies in Yerevan, Armenia, Kanye was shown a 3D printer and said, "This is what I'm afraid of here, 3D printing, because the internet destroyed the music industry and now this is what we're afraid of right now with the textile industry." The school guide tried to defend the machine by telling him it doesn't print designs on its own, pointing out that you need someone to bring those to life in the first place. "Yeah. What I'm saying [is] there will come a time where it's, like, people are making the shoes at home," he replied.

Kanye's point is interesting given that established designers like Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director of Chanel, used 3D printing to make one of the brand's fall 2015 women's suits -- which was described by The New York Times as "a little bit futuristic." Not just that, but instead of focusing on how these types of tools can also help up-and-coming designers (who don't have the backing of a major company like Adidas, as he does), Kanye seems to be worried about people only using them to create counterfeits and knockoffs. It's an understandable concern, sure, however that's been a problem since before consumer-grade 3D printers even existed.

There's an excerpt from the episode over at Gawker, if you're interested in watching it.

Okay this is from the Lyrical Lazer Chris Rivers, (in case you lived under a rock, he is the son of Hip Hop Great Big Pun.) He brought his boy Whispers on this Freestyle joint.. On one of the greatest
beats EVER. This has a smooth flow... No watered down shit... Enjoy.. Salute.

Now that Tesla's Model S has the world warmed up to the idea of classy-looking electric cars, it's ready to do it all again with a different form factor. After delays (and more delays), CEO Elon Musk announced the Model X in full specific detail -- much to the delight to those that put down some heavy deposits years back. A cheatsheet for what you'll get for waiting? Falcon wing doors to access the back, a scooch slower than the Model S, but also a higher and bigger interior than its forebear. It'll come in two models (at two prices): crossover SUV will be initially offered in two models: Reuters reports prices as $132,000 for the P90D Signature and $142,000 for the P90D Founder edition. (Update: The company has not said when the cheaper versions of the X will be available, but when they do the CEO said that they will cost roughly $5,000 more than a comparable Model S).The future isn't cheap, but let's take a look what alleged time-traveller Musk has crammed underneath those falcon wings.

Let's start with safety. Because, well, it's a car. No kidding, the Model X has a bio weapon defense mode button -- one that seals the car with true HEPA filters that are ten times larger than a regular car. At the launch event, Musk described that interior of the Model X was "like a hospital."

Tesla calls the Model X the safest car in world: the company even states it'll receive a 5-start safety rating -- before it's even taking the test. That's brassy... and it would made the car the first ever SUV to do so. Active safety is at the core of all of this: automatic emergency braking and side collision avoidance is built-in. That emergency braking even works at high speed -- another Tesla-only feature. There's forward-looking cameras, radar and even a 360-degree sonar for autopilot features. The company is promising to update the vehicle through software with even more lazier features including, yes, Autopark.

Those wings. The Tesla Model X's falcon doors are actuated on a pair of hinges. It can cheekily open itself while being crammed between two parked doors -- you'll need only 30 cm (around 12 inches) of space to open up. Sensors can also detect the roof height to decide how far to open the doors. Oh, and those doors automatically open when you get near them. Inside, seats move by reading your mind independently of each other for easy access to the back seat. As you might be able to tell from photos, that huge windscreen pretty much reaches the head of the driver and shotgun passenger. Naturally, it's solar-tinted.

If the giant view of the road ahead bores you, there's a 17-inch touchscreen that'll pull together media playing, navigation and cabin control. (We think the latter means air-con). In other firsts, the Model X is the first EV to have a 5,000-pound tow capacity. It's a proper SUV, yet promises a rush of 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. The built-in 90 kWh battery on the signature model promises a run of 250 miles on a single charge. As long as you're not playing with the doors all day, presumably. We're at the big, hectic event to get a closer look at the Model X -- expect more impressions soon!

Mm.. ok yea, this might def create a buzz in the hood... lol.. Tell them where you heard it first... Salute.
