We reached our $25,000 goal! Thank you for making Strength in Numbers a Reality…

A little while ago I contributed some cuts to a song by Chops .

Now if ya don’t know, ailment Chops was part of a group called the mountain brothers , the first Asian-American hip-hop group to sign to a major label (Ruff House/Sony Music) back in the late ’90s.

Below is the artwork for the song we did called Revolution featuring Kiwi, Ruby Ibarra, Ann One and yours truly.

Want to hear it? peep it here on Hypetrak who debut it yesterday.

This song is part of a project called Strength in Numbers.

Strength in Numbers - Revolution

From his website

About 3 years back, I noticed amazing Asian American artists making waves, and rekindled an old dream: a project with ALL strong Asian talent! Artists today who go through many of the things my group did, overcoming the same obstacles, same struggles, pushing forward, and going beyond.

I spent 2 YEARS making music with over 30 of the best Asian American rappers and singers, with special guests from Japan and Korea

This is my chance, OUR chance, to make a statement together… with undeniably talented artists who stand for great music.

– Chops

strength in Numbers project

So you’ve heard the song Revolution that I did cuts for.

The songs for the album are done. The music is made. But in order for this project to become a physical reality, we need your help.

Please check out the #Strengthinnumbers Kickstarter Page.

We are proud to announce that you fans made this project a reality! Thank you every each one of you who have supported and listened to the work done on this album….

Above is the basketball profi , one of my favorite adidas originals silhouettes , done up in Orange and Blue for my New York Knicks

Born and raised in NYC I’ve been a fan for a long time, and recently they’ve been giving us a lot to cheer about after a Loooong dry spell . I basically lived at MSG last year, and this colorway never came out for the Profi.

So this is my sneaker, representing myself and NYC.

And one of you lucky folk can win it. If you create your own, and enter into #sneakerswitch, you might end up with these kicks or a pair of sneakers from another part of the world.

Peep this video below, and go to this link – http://www.adidas.com/go/sneakerswitch to join the #sneakerswitch . good luck fellow sneakerheads!

For Heineken’s #DROPPED campaign, yours truly ended up picking something special for the special winner of the Heineken Voyage campaign.

Click the link, or see the video below…

Heineken is putting one of y’all on a voyage , and Hypebeast has your essentials for the trip #DROPPED

Hypebeast #DROPPED Essentials
Boys and girls – I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in helping launch the Heineken Voyage . What is that exactly??

From the Website

Heineken Voyage, the fifth chapter of Heineken’s global Legends campaign. Heineken will search the globe for four men who embody the “Legendary Traveler” and send them on voyages around the world to challenge them to travel outside their comfort zone. One of these travelers will be from the US.

A true “Man of the World” is never a tourist, but rather knows how to travel with finesse. This concept of voyaging with purpose – being able to be “Dropped” anywhere in the world and incept a legendary journey – is at the core of Heineken‘s latest global adventure program. Packing heavy isn’t the look. Instead, discerning globetrotters bring a select set of objects with them on their trips, guaranteed to enhance their memories no matter where they end up. Stories are woven not just by being in the right place at the right time, but also through open–minded preparedness. For Heineken’s #DROPPED program, the international brand’s panel of experts got together over dinner in New York City to pick out their travel essentials, all of which are to be chronicled in more detail in upcoming vignettes exclusive to Hypebeast. Over the next six days one vignette featuring each expert will drop each day including Jon Buscemi, Dao-Yi Chow, Richard Martin, DJ Neil Armstrong, Marcus Troy and Jonathon Mannion. They will talk about travel, offer travel tips as well as chose travel essentials including everything from a large format film camera and audio recorder for chronicling adventures to a cheeky bathing suit, tuxedo and waterproof driving moccasins to ensure ultimate accessorizing, regardless of what continent it’s taking place on.

The Heineken Dropped campaign is a global initiative to launch the Heineken Voyage.

Unfortunately, I didn’t make it that far, but I was pleasantly suprised at Game 2 of the playoffs when they showed Me and Poh the Dog on the jumbo screen :)

New Jersey, arguably the most slept on state of our country. This mixtape, like the sneaker release is all about giving props to Packer shoes, and Jersey’s forgotten history.

The Team Now known as the Brooklyn Nets has moved around quite a bit. But before they were called the NETS, they were called the Americans in the American Basketball Association.
And the Americans Played in Teaneck New Jersey from 67 – 68.

Like the Americans, every artist on this cd has “roots” in jersey. Yes – even SugarHill Gang, one of the pioneer hip hop groups was originally from Englewood NJ. The Song ‘Beggin’ by Newark born Frankie Valli came out in 1967 when The Americans made their ABA debut.

Shouts to Packer Shoes and adidas for bringing this all together.

From Freshnessmag.com

The Olympics-inspired element of Viktor’s design for the Matchplay comes from Olympic air pistol shooting, of particular interest to the Swede as it was a fellow countryman who medaled in the sport at the age of 58. In terms of styling, Viktor concentrated on the laces and interiors, adorning them with bright colors and dots (representing bullet holes from the air pistol), as well as a tongue tag printed with his likeness (“a great ego boost”). Hear the rest of Viktor’s engaging story in the video below.

The Recap video – 10 year anniversary of “Original” – 2001 to 2011.

Oh what a night.

A lot of y’all came through, illness and TRIED to come through to my anniversary party for the 10 year anniversary of “Original”, troche brought to you by adidas last week in NYC.

Basically, it got super packed super quick, AND the person in charge of the door at the club (which I won’t even name here) was the opposite of cool.

Below is a video that recaps the event , which included some of the worlds finest DJ’s on the wheels…

I didn’t get a chance to take pictures that nite so i had to “borrow” some below. Shoot, I didn’t even get to DJ the event. Trouble with the venue kept me from getting on the wheels (if you wish to know the details I would be GLAD to BLAB. ;) ) However as you see from above, the crowd didn’t miss a step.

Big shouts to DJ Daddy Dog my crewmate from the 5th platoon days, DJ Total Eclipse – my mentor, member of the X-ecutioners / MOTM season 2 , G-bo the Pro mixtape legend who was the original architect of my style , DJ Spinna – the DJ who inspired “Original” , and Questlove.
