Jake Davis hooks up with ASAP Rocky in a “Screen Test” version of his Test Shot series. Not much to say here other than watch it. It’s simple, clean, and dope.

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to attend a NCAA Final Four screening event at Nike’s Masaryk gym in the LES of New York City thanks in part to Nike NYC. I must say it was an amazing and surreal space. Every inch and speckle of paint exuded sport and motivation. At one point in between the two games and at each half time I had urges and wishes a quick little pickup game would pop off but no such thing happened. If you get the chance to visit Masaryk it’s beyond worth it.

When it comes to sneakers and footwear we all have our favorite “Ride Or Die” pairs that we wear on a consistent basis. Going into making this pair of Bespoke Air Force One’s I was inspired by the few days leading up to the appointment. This bespoke was inspired by the Jordan 3 black/cement and the Jordan 11 “Spacejam” which are the two pairs I wear consistently no matter what, whether it’s to chill, run errands or party. The sunglasses and Advil part was inspired by the EPIC Nigel Sylvester Birthday party at the penthouse of Hotel on Rivington NYC which gave me the only headache/hangover the next morning which inspired the use of cement print symbolizing the head crack I had. Now I’m adding this pair to my “Ride or Die” pairs.

A few Pictures of the madness that was Nigel Sylvester’s birthday party. A definite “Sunglasses And Advil” kind of night.

This past weekend I had swung by The Fader Fort for CMJ to check out some new music and finally see Danny Brown & Wavves perform live. The event was setup in the old Drive In theaters space so it was quite spacious and had pretty good acoustics. I also took a few pictures and a video of the event as a whole which u can see below. It was a great event overall with some dope music and great people in attendance.
