A couple of weeks back, Josh Luber welcomed Verbal into the StockX TV studio to discuss everything from past projects, upcoming ventures, relationship with Pharell and relevant street culture musings. The latest installment of StockX TV dives right into Nike’s AF100 initiative – breaking down each model per price, while taking exclusivity factors and release details into consideration. While widely covered silhouettes from such names as Virgil Abloh, Travis Scott, and Errolson Hugh were discussed, Luber took some time to highlight the recently rumored pony hair friends & family design from DJ Clark Kent.

The main feature of the new episode, however, centered around the second of its two-part conversation with Kareem “Biggs” Burke. The Roc-A-Fella frontman touched on the early foundation of sneaker culture and its lasting impact on his time coming up with JAY-Z and Dame. The label co-founder recounted how Harlem, back then, was all about staying fresh and even joked at never having worn the same kicks twice in a lengthy nine-year span — citing, he would send an intern into a store to buy up to 200 pairs at a time. Be sure to check out the video above to catch the show in its entirety and be on the lookout for future episodes.
