 There were so many who doubted the "Power" of Kanye West. (That was a play on his hit song off the "Twisted, Dark Fantasy" album...) After leaving Nike, who refused to pay him royalties due him for the massive sales of the iconic Air Yeezy collection, 'Ye comes out of the corner faster and stronger with Adidas. We told you back in January that Adidas is on the come up for that #1 spot they once held. From the looks of things, I can tell you by 2016, we'll be looking forward to 60% of everything they drop. That's for a later conversation. Right now, the topic is the "Pirate Black" Yeezy 350 Boost, and its the only thing on the radar.
 Here we go. A Black knit upper, complimented by a primal Grey striped pattern that covers the entire upper. A Black canvas pull-tab on the back of each sneaker for easy slip-on. The thick, rope laces are an added touch. It gives the shoes a nice, firm balance.
 There's one thing that we should be talking about. It is Adidas' answer to Nike Air. The Boost Technology is included in the Yeezy's, from toe to heel. The comfort it provides to your feet is something many will be speaking of (if you are blessed with the chance to have a pair of Yeezy 350 Boost, or a different pair of kicks from Adidas which carries the Boost Technology) by this time next year. You can feel the difference.
The stamp on the insole. Adidas x Yeezy is the kind of collaboration we've always wanted, but didn't know it. Just like Jay-Z and Biggie. Could you imagine if they did an entire album together? The sneaker culture deserved this. Kanye was one of the first to defect from the machine. Believe in yourself, in your passion. Don't take no for an answer, and NEVER sell yourself short. Kanye took a leap on faith, and I'm sure those laws were in the back of his mind.
48 hours from now, the WORLD will understand, yet again, why Kanye is such a WINNER. His designs, whether it be sneakers or fashion, is usually pushing the envelope. Some say "ahead of his time". I say Kanye is a fashion designer who deserves the same respect as Riccardo Tisci, or Gaultier, or Versace. His fashion is more than a statement. Nike knows. He didn't just "Do It", he did it. Snatch up the "Pirate Black" Yeezy 350 Boost this Saturday, August 22nd.  Cali "O" #TeamKickGame #PirateBlack #YeezyBoost

 Actually, you're right on time. Drizzy has proven himself to be one of Hip-Hop's best M.C.'s. His consistency when it comes to music is unparalleled, reminiscent of Hov in many ways. His two impromptu performances on freestyles in the past week has his name buzzin' through the game with heavy rotation.
 After a highly publicized battle with Philly rapper Meek Mill, and the release of his collaborative effort with The Game entitled, "100", Drake and Jordan Brand unveil a sneak peek at the OVO x Air Jordan 8's.

 With the "Black Chrome" 8's set to release in the 4th quarter this year, we see what could be the trademark of the OVO brand placement on the back side panel of the 8's. Nothing on the kicks really change, other than the "all Black everything" look throughout the sneaker and the Gold Owl on the sides. 
No release date set in stone, but September 12th we'll see the OVO x Air Jordan X's drop. Stay tuned to KickGame DVD for the latest.  Cali "O" #TeamKickGame

R.I.P big homie. You're presence is still felt, and greatly missed. 18 years. Damn. Still feels like yesterday. -The KickGame DVD Family

 In a time where creativity is not truly explored, and the reality of the streets are mostly ignored, Moe is the primary writer/producer/editor/driving force behind the web series, "Money & Violence". The series is extremely well written, with a storyline that weaves the characters in and out of schemes, plots, and of course, money and violence. Mind you, this is not a series that glorifies money, or the violence that comes with it, but an epic street reality written by a man who lived during Brooklyn's Golden Era, and is giving us a glimpse into that world.

 Moe is one of the main characters in the series. He plays "Rafe" who is an intelligent, articulate brother who knows the perils of the streets, but is determined to play the cards he's dealt to create a better life for himself and his daughter. His right-hand, "Miz", is a real street dude, that is honest about the way he lives his life; like a true gangsta. Miz is ready to do whatever he has to to get that paper. Miz reminds me of  Tupac in "Juice", as far as how passionate he is about the street life.
Miz's "young boy" Shane is a young street dude coming up under Miz, but is trying to hold his own while dealing with the snakes on the street. Then there's Kane, who is like Rafe's little brother, and Kane is reluctant at first to be a part of the street life. I like Kane's character, because it shows a young dude who wants to walk on the "right side", but when there are no jobs available, and your "baby moms" will not allow you to see your child because you have no money, sometimes the solution becomes "by any means necessary".
 What makes Moe's writing so brilliant, is the REALNESS he allows the viewers to experience. If you know Brooklyn like we do, you know there are snakes and shiesty dudes that move on the streets and try to blend in with REAL N!gg@$. Rafe explores what's behind all these doors, leaving no stone unturned and the viewers wanting more.
The cast of "Money & Violence" were recently on Power 105 in New York to speak about the success of the show, and where it's going in the future. It would be dope to see Moe's hard work and dedication, along with a great cast, to be given a green light for production on HBO, or Showtime. Maybe Netflix can pick it up as one of their new original series. One thing is for sure. We want to see Moe and his entire team at Cloud 9 TV continue to win and represent the culture the way it should be. Proud. Salute to Moe, Cloud 9 TV, and the entire cast of "Money & Violence" for keeping us stuck to our computers. We can't wait to see the FINALE on February 3rd. Salute.
