Prodigy of Mobb Deep 10 Greatest Style Moments

Today we celebrate the life and memory of Prodigy — 1/2 of the legendary 90s rap duo Mobb Deep who passed away one year ago today.

While the Queens-bred MC will always be remembered primarily for his hard-hitting music and thought-provoking lyricism, he also was a pretty fly guy, too. Over the span of his 20+ year career in the game, the man born as Albert Johnson has put bootleg Hennessy jerseys on the map, collaborated with Supreme, and unintentionally curated one of the most diverse headwear collections in rap [Editor’s note: Just do a Google search, guys — you will rarely find a pic of him without a proper snapback, skully, or bandana!]

Keep scrolling to get a look at why Prodigy will forever be missed, both for his fresh skills on the mic and his fresh swag while out on the scene:

9. (1/2002) That time Diddy brought Mobb Deep to the shiny suit side alongside 112 for the Infamy album single “Hey Luv (Anything),” but both dudes still managed to keep their Queens-bred edge. Prodigy had on the ill jacket toward the end, too!

Xbox and Air Jordan Have a Collaboration On The Way

It was only a week ago that we got an official look at the Nike x Playstation 2018 Air Force 1 collab, and already there’s another gaming-fused shoe that’s about to turn heads: the Xbox x Air Jordan 1 Mid.

The shoe incorporates a colorway that you’d expect the most from a collab on this caliber: green and black, dominating the premium suede upper that pays homage to the OG Microsoft Xbox console. Co-branding is seen throughout the silhouette, popping up in places like the shoelaces — four options to be exact! — all the way down to the glow-in-the-dark outsole, designed to resemble the Xbox logo that lit up every time you turned on the console. Still too early to decide who pulled off their kick console theme the best, but we do know it must be mayhem over there in the “Xbox vs Playstation” community!

The Xbox x Air Jordan 1 Mid doesn’t come with release date info, but word is they might drop as a surprise SNKRS release similar to the PS AF1, according to Sneaker News. Keep an eye out for these!

With Steez, From Paris: M+RC Noir Spring/Summer 2018 Lookbook Starring Playboi Carti

Playboi Carti told us on his hit single “Magnolia” what he does when in New York, and now we have an idea of his Paris activities thanks to the new spring/summer 2018 lookbook from Parisian clothing brand M+RC Noir.

The collection features a range of stylish summer-ready gear, including lightweight jackets, track pants, carry-alls and classic hoodies branded with M+RC Noir embroidery. It’s generally a streetwear set, but some pieces can definitely claim the sportswear tag due to the breathable nylon and cotton materials used throughout. It doesn’t hurt that Carti’s 6’2″ frame makes the clothes look so good, either.

The M+RC Noir Spring/Summer 2018 Collection goes on sale starting June 20 in HYPEBEAST’s HBX webstore.

Branded: This New Air Max 97 Is Covered In Logos

Logos have been a focal point for Nike this year. Few companies can cover their products in logos and still be desired by customers.

The latest Air Max 97 puts a stealthy spin on logo covered products. At first glance, you may think its just a blacked out 97 with red accents but when you take a closer look, limitless logos are revealed. Matte black Nike spell-out logos dominate the upper, thus making for an interesting contrast against the black sneaker.

Meanwhile, red swooshes decorate the midsole and tongues. Red is also used on the Air Max branding which covers the signature pull tabs. You may be eager to get your feet in these so you can slip into incognito mode but you’ll have to be patient considering they haven’t been released to the U.S. market yet.

However, they have already been released overseas at select retailers. When they do make it to the U.S., expect to pay $160 USD.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the swoosh brand experiment with logos. The “Just Do It” pack for the Air Max 95 also featured multiple logo variations.

Update: Jay-Z Announced as Puma’s New Creative Director

Recently Puma captured the eyes of sneaker and basketball enthusiasts worldwide after signing some of the top NBA draft prospects to what are assumed very lucrative deals. In a move that is sure to turn even more heads, Complex reports Puma’s return to hoops will be led by JAY-Z as their president of basketball operations.

“We’ve been working with Roc Nation for quite some time. They’ve been great partners to us for several years. We’ve done many different deals with many different ambassadors,” Adam Petrick, Puma’s global director of brand and marketing, said in a statement.

The report states President Carter will assist in everything the brand will do from picking players to brand direction and design. The relaunch of the division for Puma includes the signings of Arizona’s Deandre Ayton, Texas Tech’s Zhaire Smith, and Duke’s Marvin Bagley III.

“It’s clear that we’re looking at basketball through the lens of culture, and thinking about the fashion of basketball, the music of basketball, all the aspects of culture around basketball as much as the on court presence that we will have,” Petrick shared.

Ayton, who is widely considered to be the first pick of this draft, spoke on joining Puma with Bleacher Report stating he felt a level of comfort with the brand due to his mother’s comfort with some staff members of the brand along with it being the best deal.

“Nike is Nike. Adidas is Adidas. I’ve played in their circuits and stuff like that, but now it’s a business. You don’t want just product. You’re not a kid anymore. You’re really trying to get bank,” Ayton added.

Bagley III’s deal is reportedly for the next five-years and at the time considered to be the biggest for a rookie since Kevin Durant inked with Nike.

The first drop from the relaunch of the basketball line of Puma comes in the form of 73 limited edition pairs of the sneaker worn by NBA Legend Walt Clyde Frazier today in Brooklyn, as reported by ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

It will be interesting to see what the Puma Basketball team achieves with this rookie class and during the upcoming season with Hov at the helm. Be sure to check back with TheSource.com for further updates.

Update: ESPN Darren Rovell reports Jay-Z role with Puma is actually Creative Director instead of President of Basketball Operations as originally reported.

UPDATE: Jay Z has not signed up for the role of president of Puma Basketball. The contract he signed was for creative director.
