A few of you have been waiting on UP to release their 5 Panel hats. They are currently available on their webstore in four colors for $29. The branding is a little blatant but if that is your thing then these are a good pick for the summer.

If you’ve ever read anything I’ve ever written then you could probably deduce that Tyler Perry products are not my cup of tea. I commend Perry on what he’s accomplished in Hollywood but that is about as far as it goes.
Perry’s name is plastered all over The Peeples–which opens today–but thankfully for the portion of the population that isn’t into Madea, he is a producer on the project and not a writer/director. The Peeples was written/directed by first time director Tina Gordon Chism (DRUMLINE, ATL).

The Low is built with the same heel articulation as the high. The articulation keeps the ankle supported, and at the same time allows for complete mobility. The midsole contains UA’s proprietary Micro G Foam for cushioning and responsiveness. The Outsole has a cored clear rubber outsole with rubber traction pods for control and lateral and linear movement. The UA Charge BB Low in Clean White and Blacked Out colorways are available in limited quantities later today for $100. Cop at UnderArmour.com.

If you follow this blog you know that we lean left when it comes to our allegiances. While we were on twitter recently we came across a tweet from the legendary MC Hammer.
With an endorsement from Hammer, we had to check out the shirts. Turns out they are dope. Real Oakland–which has been in business for a year–uses a tried and true tee formula but it doesn’t come across stale. They have more designs on the horizon but in the meantime you can buy their flagship shirt in multiple colors here.

They are nearly half way to their goal with a few weeks left. If you’re so inclined you can donate a buck and up here.

Unless your cable got cut off, you have seen DeAndre’s vicious dunk on Brandon Knight. If not, check here. Under Armour has dropped two t-shirts in honor of one of the top dunks of the season and both are available here.
