Fetty Wap "Wake Up" Video

Fetty Wap shares the video for "Wake Up".
Fetty Wap's "Wake Up" seems to be the New Jersey rapper's next big hit. The nostalgic track fittingly takes Fetty back to high school as he recalls the struggle of getting out of bed in the morning. There's a bit of revisionist history however, as we see strippers working the pole in the cafeteria, 40s being downed in class, a textbook on "Ancient Greek Thots," and teachers lighting up apple bongs. It's a good way of illustrating the filter of nostalgia we put on our younger years.

Desiigner Reading The Lyrics To "Panda" Is Strangely Entertaining

It's almost as good as the actual song.
A rapper reading his own lyrics might not sound like the most exciting thing in the world, considering that's pretty much what rappers do for a living (except generally there are beats and flows involved), but Desiigner's reading of his #1 single, "Panda" for Genius actually manages to be an entertaining watch. This is mainly due to Desiigner's entertainer instincts, refusing to just read the bars straight-faced, and gradually getting nearly as animated as he does on stage. If you weren't sure about any of the bars on this one, you should be able to rap it perfectly after watching.

Jordan Brand‘s Pinnacle Series was as well-received as a basketball shoe retailing for $400 could be. That’s not a knock at the premium style of the numerous Air Jordan 1s featuring actual 24K gold accents either. Diehard fans flocked to releases like the Hender Scheme-esque Vachetta Tan leather installment. Now the Jumpman is translating the look onto a different silhouette with the Air Jordan 4 Pinnacle. Both a monochromatic black and navy croc-skin has made its way onto the upper in brief previews while this Air Jordan 4 “Snakeskin” outlier is the most luxurious to date. If the Air Jordan 1 Pinnacle told us anything, expect this premium synthetic snakeskin pair to demand a premium price point. Check out the best look at what was once considered only a sample below and we’ll keep you updated on a release date right here on Sneaker News.

Kyrie Irving may have been a one-and-done for his college career, but he still seems to have some pride for his former college squad, as his second signature shoe receives a Duke Blue Devils colorway just like his first.

Evereyon can find the Kyrie 2 “Duke” at select Nike Basketball retailers like Sneaker Politics this Saturday.


Over the past couple of years we’ve seen an number of new colorways for the Air Jordan 1 KO that borrow OG color schemes from the standard AirJordan 1 High, I.E. the “Royal” and “Shadow” looks.

If you consider yourself an Air Jordan 1 OG completist collector, you can’t do it without these. Get another look here today, and don’t forget that they drop this Saturday at select Jordan Brand retailers like Sneaker Politics.

ASAP Rocky's Tyler The Creator Impression Is Incredible

Going on tour with someone is a good way to get to know pretty much everything about them, and after the Rocky & Tyler shows, it's safe to say that the two rappers spent a lot of time together. In a recent interview on GOLF radio, Rocky displayed just how much time he spent listening to Tyler rant about random shit when he launched into a spot-on impression of the rapper. 

"Do you drive? do you DRIVE?! Oh man, you gotta get the fuckin' Mclaren, man," Rocky said in an unmistakable gravel-voice, which Tyler later praised for being "so accurate". Check it out above.

50 Cent Calls Out Ebro For Blaming Him For The Demise Of NY Rap

50 Cent is taking shots at Ebro on Instagram after the HOT 97 host apparently blamed him for the lamentable state of New York rap.


The rise in popularity of Yohji Yamamoto’s adidas Y-3 imprint has led to adidas Originals imitating some of the sleeker designs to appease those who wouldn’t readily shell out the usual $300-$400 for a Y-3 pair. That thought process has been readily apparent with the Tubular and Boost series and now another silhouette is benefiting from the overhaul: the adidas Superstar. Let’s be clear that this isn’t by any means a new model. In fact, a few years back the three stripes released this women’s exclusive adidas Superstar Strap featuring crisscrossing neoprene straps and a slip-on construction similar to the Qasa series. It didn’t do all that well back then, as it came and went in a flash and was forgotten quickly. Now adidas is hoping the changing atmosphere and how we look at lifestyle sneakers will also change how this pair is recieved. Two simple colorways are available for purchase in a subtle black and white exclusive to a women’s size run once again. Check out more photos below and know that international retailers like Titolo have started stocking this pair.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are getting ready to drop their follow up to the massively successful independent album, The Heist, this Friday, and to build hype for the release, they've shared a video for the previously released single, "Kevin".

The song tells the story of the consequences of drug addiction, with the 21-year-old titular character at the center of the narrative, but the blame for his untimely death is pointed away from him and his family. Meanwhile, Leon Bridges supplies a soulful, melancholic hook amidst the rapper's storytelling. The black and white clip is directed by Jason Koenig and Ryan Lewis. Look out for This Unruly Mess I've Made on February 26th.

Rihanna & Drake Perform "Work" At Brit Awards

Rihanna and Drake are winning right now. Not only did they just drop two great videos for their single, "Work," this week, they hit #1 on the Hot 100, making for their second collaborative single to achieve the feat (the first being "What's My Name"). Today, they celebrated the success of the song with a performance on the BRIT Awards. 

Things started off strong with Rihanna giving a rendition of ANTI opener "Consideration" with the help of an amazing light show reminiscent of her performance of "Umbrella" with Klaxons at the 2008 awards, but quickly segued into "Work". Just when it seemed Drizzy might not be making an appearance he slid through as the two danced their way through his verse much like they did in the video. Watch it all above.

Diddy Feat. Lil Kim, Styles P "Auction" Video

In November, Puffy dropped his first project in over a year with MMM. Really, the mixtape/album was his first hip-hop release in almost 5 years, as 11 11 was more of a dance music project than anything. In any case, few expected that the Bad Boy founder's return would be so impressive, as MMMproved that Puffy can still make hot records while keeping the same New York luxury sound with which he dominated the late '90s. 

Rihanna Feat. Drake "Work" Video

We've been hearing rumors of the "Work" video before the song was even released, and today, it's finally arrived. As it's been proven that the song works best on repeat, Rihanna has decided to drop not one but TWO videos for the very danceable record, the first filmed at "The Real Jerk" in Toronto, while the second finds her and Drizzy alone in a room, working off of one another's energy.

It's pretty much everything we wanted from it, and should give the song an even stronger push up the charts. What do you think of the new clip?

One option features a bred-inspired look with red dominating the majority of the Flyknit upper and black accents working themselves in. Additional black detailing has been added on the inner liner, laces, midsole and Swoosh branding. The other pair has black and grey upper that almost looks all black.

Get Another Look At The Air Jordan 11 IE Low “Referee”

Jordan Brand’s 30th anniversary has brought us nothing but heat this year. The special milestone also brought back the Air Jordan 11 IE Low silhouette. After releasing a couple OG colorways, another classic design is set to release as well. The Air Jordan 11 IE Low “Referee” was originally released for NBA referees, and will not hit retailers for the public.
The Nike Roshe Run is undoubtedly one of the most used models for customs. We’ve seen customizers paint on it, put new fabric on it, completely transform the aesthetics of the shoe! Almost everything has been done on it, but I’ve never seen something quite like this before. Designer/Shoemaker based out of Chicago, Brandi Devers completely transforms this pair of the Nike Roshe Run Woven by implementing suede crocodile leather all over the woven upper and giving it a luxe aesthetic that we’ve never seen on a Roshe before!


Nike Sportswear has done it once again. Yep, here’s another all-red sneaker. This time it’s the classic Air Huarache the gets what will probably forever be referred to as the “Red October” colorway treatment, sporting a bold tonal red upper. We’re not kidding when we say all-red this time, as the iconic foot-hugging running shoe gets nothing but crimson for the mesh, neoprene, and synthetic material across the upper that extends right down through the entire sole unit. If you need to add another all-red sneaker to your collection, look for these soon at select Nike Sportswear retailers.


A little history lesson for all the hypebeats: adidas was doing relevant collabs with hip-hop artists long before Kanye West came around. Of course, it all starts with Run DMC in the 1980’s, but more recently it was Big Sean who had the coveted sneakers with the Three Stripes on them. Go back to the year 2012 for the “Detroit Player” adidas Pro Model by Big Sean, which featured a deluxe red snakeskin upper with darker red suede detailing, and gold accoutrements throughout the upper—including the pyramids on the laces. Limited to only 380 pairs at retail, Big Sean’s Pro Models were a hot item then, and even harder to find now. Take a minute to remember the “Detroit Player” Pro Models, and if you still need a pair, find them on eBay.
Jordan Brand‘s 30th Anniversary has given us plenty to look forward to, but none of the releases have been as refined and lifestyle inclined as the Air Jordan 1 Pinnacle series. The first few releases saw Mike’s classic first silhouette draped in a synthetic snakeskin upper while accents of real 24K Gold hit the lace eyelets, unique heel tab, and Wings logos. This Vachetta Tan pair which challenges Hender Scheme’s aesthetic with a monochromatic sandy shade on top and a sail outsole is the most simplistic Pinnacle release to date, as it takes the Air Jordan 1, ditches the embossed Wings logo for an added patch (this time not in metallic gold pendant form) and gives us a truly memorable release perfect for dressing up. Check out more photos below and know that this release will be available this Saturday, September 26th for $400.


The ever-popular Air Max 95 got an unexpected upgrade with the help of LeBron James. Nike Sportswear took some iconic details of the Lozano running classic and placed it on the LeBron 12 Low in the OG Orange colorway with the signature gradient fade upper. Given how hybrid Nikes have always struggled to fare well in terms of public response, the LeBron 12 Low AM95 seems to be getting quite the buzz based on the early leaked photos. Stay tuned for a detailed gallery for this upcoming LeBron 12 release because it is likely the last of the model you’ll see hit retail.


You knew it was coming. Nike’s Flyknit obsession continues by landing on one of their most iconic silhouettes: the Nike Air Force 1. We had brief glimpses of the shoe in the past, as Kobe rocked the pair while on his RISE Tour throughout China. Then there was the white on white pair that showcased a Dynamic Flywire support system, thinner strap, and hints of a slimmed down midsole (although not Lunar in origin) complete with an icy bottom. This pair is the first photo evidence of it actually existing as black and grey Flyknit comes together on a much darker variety. Leather holds down the heel, ankle collar, and Swoosh branding. Stay tuned for more previews in the coming days and in the meantime let us know if you’re looking forward to the Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit in the comments section.
