How many pairs of sneakers do you have?

“I’ve got a lot of shoes, but I don’t like to wear a lot. I tend to wear my top three or four. I have over a hundred for sure, but I’m always giving pairs away to my friends or loosing them.”

All sneaker heads have a certain shoe they buy in bulk. What’s yours? 

I’m such a fan of all white Vans. It’s the Cali boy in me again. I just love all white shoes. You can only get like two wears out of them, it just kills me. I buy like five at a time. They just get dirty so fast. You want something to always fit like when you first buy it. That feeling when you first it on.”

You arrived today wearing the new Yeezy 350 boots with a head-to-toe Yeezy look. What do you think it is about what Kanye West has done that has resonated so successfully?

“When he believes in something, he believes in it whether people don’t like it or like it. He’s going to do it anyway. Once people realize that, they take their barrier down. A lot of people judge things based on perception and don’t actually give it a try. Once they do, they like it and realize what he’s trying to do, on all levels. I get what he’s doing musically and am a fan of his as an artist and his drive. Everyone has different tastes, but right now, this is how I’m feeling like dressing.”

About the Yeezy Boost 950 Boots and his special Jenner connect, which he is included in the family special order: 

“It’s winter and these just feel right. I’m lucky I don’t have to try and hunt them down online anymore. I like getting things first.”

Last Night In NYC: Bryson Tiller Performs at SOB’s for Two ‘Sold Out’ Shows

bryson-tiller-sobs

Last Night In NYC…Invading the local NY entertainment & music hotspot, SOB’s, artist Bryson Tiller brought his entire T R A P S O U L project to the stage, as he performed for not ONE, but TWO of his ‘SOLD OUT’ shows.

147A0002

Guided us right down Tiller Ave, Bryson delivered hits from his album like: “Rambo”, Ten Nine Fourteen”, “For However Long”, and more along with his major record that broke his stardom streak, “Don’t”.

During Bryson’s set, the talented artist kept his signature mysterious vibe visually in effect, with subtle flashes of colorful undertones and clouds of smoke, not giving off too much for the visible eye — but just enough to draw you into the feel of love, art, passion and pain of his music. Think, the stages of a T R I P P Y  L I F E. A roller-coaster of testimonials.

147A0041

Congrats to Bryson Tiller on a successful showcase.

 

 

T R A P S O U L is available on iTunes HERE.

The Daily Word: Lil Kim Claims Domestic Violence In Custody Battle

Lil'Kim Summer Jam 2015

Today, details paired with more messiness in the Lil Kim vs. Mr. Papers custody battle over baby Royal Reign have come to the light.

Via court docs obtained by Bossip, Kim claims Papers abused her. Conversely, in an excessive interview with someone close to the situation, claims of domestic violence are vehemently denied.

Mr. Papers aka Jeremy Neil has been trying to see his daughter Royal for sometime now, as he filed for visitation just last month. As he processed the paperwork, he asked: for one day a week to parent Royal Reign, and even agreed to have a court-approved monitor supervise the visits.

Papers publicist, Tasha Hilton told Bossip:

“He’s not trying to take custody, he’s not trying to take her. He is literally just trying to see her. He’s been trying to do it very quietly.”

But Kim has been blocking him from seeing their child at all. Since the blockage was still in effect, Papers asked the courts to step in and handle the situation.

Later, the July 9th hearing had approached and Kim was a no-show. Instead, the veteran female rapper filed her own documents accusing the up & coming mc of domestic violence.

Papers denies the claims and believes it’s a stunt to try and prevent him from seeing his daughter further. Says that, being faithful and infidelity took place in their past relationship, but not violence.

Both Kim and Papers will end up back to family court based on the allegation this week.

What are your thoughts?

We will keep you updated on what happens next.
