A$AP Nast Announces Collaboration with Converse

by @Djordje

A$AP Nast, an avid collector of mid-century modern furniture, teams with Converse for a footwear and apparel collection incorporating materials of various textures, patterns and understated shades all inspired the recording artist’s favorite period of design history.

“Being born and raised in Harlem, I’m excited to drop my [first] design collaboration in my city. Fashion has always been a priority whether expressed through my style or rap– I am telling a story,” says Nast. “As a young creative, Converse gave me the opportunity to share my vision, passion, and personal inspiration of a timeless era through the collection.”

The Converse x A$AP Nast collection features a One Star and Chuck Taylor All Star 70 in addition to a custom Converse t-shirt. The One Star is made with a soft-hued corduroy upper in Arrowhead, extra fuzzy laces, and the model’s iconic star in a deep Red Dahlia leather. The Chuck Taylor All Star 70 features a plaid outer with two interchangeable fuzzy laces in Egret and Greener Pastures. The phrase “SOMEWHERE IN MID-CENTURY” appears on both the sneaker’s sidewalls, reminding of the era that influences A$AP Nast’s creative direction. The same phrase is also displayed on the front of the T-shirt, available in Cream, Cardinal, and Dark Chocolate.

The limited edition Converse x A$AP Nast collection launches September 28 at 5pm EST exclusively at the Foot Locker flagship in Times Square.

A$AP Mob’s 5 Tips To Staying Sane on Tour

by @Djordje

New York-based hip hop collective A$AP Mob stormed onto the scene in 2012 with a self-released viral mixtape and haven’t looked back since, going on to claim #1 album spots on the Billboard charts while also impacting the worlds of fashion, art, and film.

Comprised of rappers, record producers, video directors, and fashion designers, The Mob has earned both critical and popular acclaim for their swag-heavy trunk rattling sound, keeping their rabid fanbase satisfied with a steady output of music releases and various other projects.

The Mob’s most well-known member, A$AP Rocky, is one of the most ubiquitous figures in pop culture and a good measure for just how large the collective’s impact has been. Serving as creative director at MTV and the face of Dior Homme, Rocky’s style and sound has caught the attention of the industry’s leading eyes and ears, earning two features on Lana Del Rey’s recent critically acclaimed album and even landing a role in “Zoolander 2.”

by @Djordje

Between dropping his long awaited debut album “12” to critical acclaim this summer and the continued success of ASAP Mob, ASAP Twelvyy is riding pretty high right now.

The rapper hopes to bring those good vibes to the Boston area when he and the rest of the ASAP crew perform at Tsongas Center in Lowell this weekend. ASAP Twelvyy tells Metro that he has a lot of love for Massachusetts and expects Saturday’s show “to be turnt.”

Aside from bringing the party to Bay State fans, the hip-hop star is excited to be back in town so he can bask in the glow of the region’s many championship-winning teams, namely the Celtics. ASAP Twelvyy is happy to see Kyrie Irving take his talents to Boston and thinks that the team will be exciting to watch this season.

“I know the whole Massachusetts area is on fire. You got Kyrie. It’s a rebirth right now,” he says. “I would love to see Kyrie and Gordon Hayward kill, and Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. It’s going to be real exciting.”

Smooky MarGielaa Interview with Pigeons & Planes

by @Djordje

On a chilly Friday night in early 2017, Murda Beatz got off the elevator at Manhattan’s Platinum Sound Studios and bumped into a teenage rapper wearing designer jeans and seemingly in the midst of his growth spurt.

“Smooky!” Murda exclaimed, dapping up his young friend. They chatted for a moment before Smooky MarGielaa returned to his session down the hall.

“Send me beats!” he called to Murda over his shoulder. Smooky’s request did not appear opportunistic, despite Murda’s exalted stature and connections to artists like Drake, PartyNextDoor, and Migos. It appeared organic and neighborly, as though the two of them were certain to reap a windfall from the combination of their talents.

It is true—Smooky MarGielaa is 15 years old, and there is no rapper his age better positioned to ascend to rap stardom. The Bronx native is ASAP Rocky’s newest protégé and a member of AWGE, ASAP Mob’s creative collective.
