Watermelons Sneakers & Double Barrels

Vipi wazeiya, I hope things are cool.

Msanii beat me to the punch a threw up some myspace and other web links to various african hiphoppas y'all should be aware of. Please go visit and enjoy some homegrown rap music. It's a good thing he's on the job. I've been bizzay nikihangaika na kuhustle. I'll still be throwing up links soon but for now Msanii got the goods.

Check out Mocha for a whole selection of videos from k.e and Bongo.

Who would've thought the day would come. NY Knicks star guard Stephon Marbury recently launched his Starbury sneaker line. Doesn't seem like a big deal, all notable athletes drop a shoe or two in their career. Stephon did the unimaginable thing and made his shoes real $15.00 cheap. And they were only available at Steve & Barry's sports & apparel stores in New York City. The rush in the city was serious this weekend. They are now selling on eBay for upwards of $50 as sneaker collecters swoop in.

Shaq is the only other hooper that has unleashed a relatively cheap sneaker. Which is the main reason why Shaq is cool in my books. Marbury has said he will be playing in his shoe. Some folks are wondering about the quality of the shoe. There's something Nike doesn't want you to know.... their shoes cost just as much to make as the Starburys except they throw a swoosh or a jumpman on it, spend a grip on advertising and endorsement trying to get you to buy them and demand $180 for a pair.

Don Cheadle is putting in work with serious movies. He is portraying a famous Washington DC area TV & Radio personality and Black activist, the Late Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene. Check out some rare footage to get a glimpse of the real Petey. He goes on and on about watermelons and about being yourself. Classic. Taraji P. Henson (oooh weee!), Cedric The Entertainer and Vondie Curtis-Hall also star in that flick. Will Smith is also doing another human interest picture out this Christmas, peep the trailer.

To my ladies what would you do with a brutha with this problem? Gives the term threesome a different spin, doesn't it?

Thanks for visiting my blog!
I like the idea of cheap shoes, as long as it's quality. Paying full price for Nikes is too much.
Don Cheadle is a great actor and can pull off deep characters well.
Just read the article about the guy with 2 penises, damn! Never heard of it before. It would be very surprising to watch a man strip and step out of his boxers to reveal double the equipment.
