This is what happens when you coon and buffoon and try and impress a group of people who will never like you no matter what you do.

Kanye West debuted his Adidas Originals collection last week in Manhattan, and the reviews have been decidedly mixed. But the rapper-designer’s harshest critic could be New York Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis. “I’m kind of over Kanye,” she recently told Page Six. “I mean, I’m not a fan of his music, and the attitude and the agenda is not my style.” Now West has responded to Mallis’ criticisms via Twitter – using a zen-like tone.

Haiti Earthquake Victims To Get $10 Million Worth Of Designer Knockoffs

Don’t know if this is a good idea because these counterfeit goods may cause crime with people fighting and hurting each other in order to resell this stuff.

Haiti is about to get some style. Around 125,000 tons of style.

About $10 million worth of knockoff designer goods is set to be donated to needy Haiti earthquake victims.

The fake duds “from” companies such as True Religion, Rocawear, Ralph Lauren, Diesel, and Ed Hardy will be shipped to Haiti after having their labels removed, per legal requirement.

Counterfeit goods are normally destroyed but an exception was made in this case.

The clothes and other items were netted in raids over the past two years.

Lo Lifes: The Story of An American Dream Doc Trailer

I was surfing through my blogroll and I came across this on ProHipHop‘s site and I had to post it. This footage has my blood boiling because unlike all these backpacker weirdo’s who are trying to resurrect to them what amounts to a fad but to us what amounts to our culture, I was there in the thick of the POLO era, popularized by the Lo Lifes but repped but other entities coming out of Brooklyn as well. I repeat, to you weirdo hipsters this isn’t a fashion fad, POLO was a way of life for us and we still hold that connection sacred, as crazy as that may sound. This is Thirstin’ Howl upholding his end of the legacy, apparently a documentary is on the way.
