Nike Sportswear Beijing 2008 - Pre-Event Recap

As I write this, blog world can’t stop won’t stop… it’s getting late. Beyond the rather lifeless product descriptions comes some of our first hand accounts and sights that have taken place prior to the first day of Nike’s Sportswear Beijing 2008 event. The day has been marked by internet frustrations, only one internet wire for two computers and meeting good people. Regarding the internet, luckily Kevin is a computer nerd and brought to light the fact that two computer scan share i-net via Bluetooth. Met some people from our old stomping grounds… aka Canada including the good peeps at Inquiring Mind, What’s Really Good Magazine and Nike Canada.

Nike Air Max 90 Revisited

The Nike Air Max 90 Infrared alongside the Air Max 95 Neon are models which have represented the two most popular OG colorways from the ever significant Air Max collection of footwear from Nike. Despite the inception of visible Air Unit goodness in 1987 with the Air Max 1, the effect began to reach paramount levels in 1990 with the release of the Infrared 90. Twenty years since the original release and the re-branding of a segment of Nike’s leisure/lifestyle brand on the horizon, the legend has been revisited. Embodying the similar aesthetics from the past, the Air Max 90 for 2008 features updated technical and performance aspects to revive the high performing aspect of the Air Max collection in a more contemporary setting.

One of the highlights in Chinese architecture will take center stage later this summer as Beijing’s National Stadium, dubbed the Bird’s Nest will host a large portion of the Olympic events this summer. To commemorate the stadium and its significance, the cornerstone of Nike’s footwear segment, the Air Force 1 has been reinterpreted in the style of the Bird’s Nest. The black leather upper is marked with details similar to the same ones seen on the National Stadium which has earned it the aptly named nickname.

Bun B: That's Gangsta

Bun B: That's Gangsta

Just ask any aspiring southern MC (as well as other parts of the country and world for that matter) who inspired them to rhyme and watch their eyes illuminate like Christmas trees as they mention UGK at the top of the list. For years the Port Arthur, Texas duo combined Bun B’s growling yet smooth baritone with pin point precise lyricism and Pimp C’s unmistakable country twang spiced with biting wit. Pimp C constructed tracks drenched in woozy gospel organs and classic hip hop 808 drum kit all seemingly slowed up on prescription cough medicine. Since the mid 90s the group dropped classic albums (Riding Dirty), classic guest appearances (Bun B’s verse on Ludacris’ “Stick em up”) and became a chest thumping source of pride and counter attack for southern hip hop fanatics against the constant barrage of unfair criticism against southern lyricists. Unexpectedly and tragically last year Pimp C passed away at a moment in UGK’s career that just seemed to be on its way into the consciousness of the mainstream. With the loss of a friend and a rhyming partner, determined to carry UGK’s legacy on his back Bun B defiantly pulls his H-town fitted down low and goes in alone on his second fourth coming solo album “II Trill”. One thing is for certain after listening to the opening bars on Bun B’s first single “That’s Gangsta” is that Bun has not changed up his perfected formula at all. He immediately smashes the listener in the face with brutal braggadocios lyrics over melodic abrasive drum stabs. Even Sean Kingston’s Jamaican tinged crooning over the chorus appears to be more emphatic then usual when placed in the middle of Bun’s authentic narratives. With all of its gangsta posturing and scathing attacks on fake thugs the song comes to a close by Bun giving a shout out to his fallen friend.
