I Used To Get It In Atlanta…

Editor’s note: I needed to return to my parent’s basement in order for me to get some spirit to touch up the keyboard hardbody again. I feel like I have said it all to y’all that needs to be said. No question I appreciate your time coming here and talking that shit with me day in day out, but now its time for me to return back to my life. One more for the road though. One more for all my peeps out there that remember these days when they actually happened and one more for those that inspired me to drop them on this page.

When you are as hard-headed as me it takes a few knocks upside your nugget for you to learn a lesson. I apparently hadn’t learned everything yet when it came to trying to live out the d-boy lifestyle. I made a jump to Atlanta in the beginning of 1993 to see my big homie from the Bronx who had relocated down there. All he would tell me about were the women that seemed to flock to the city in endless droves. Atlanta is a college town at heart, that is where her energy stems from, and the Black colleges in Atlanta recruit some of the baddest PYT’s from all across the country. One of the first times I really encountered a hardbody Detroit chick was from visiting my peoples in the A. Actually, shorty was from Flint which is even more hardbody than the D, but I digress…

I was jumping to Atlanta to mash up with my boy D-Block and dig a taste of the scene down there from his perspective. D-Block wasn’t a d-boy but he knew people that knew people. D-Block got his stacks in other ways but I’m not going to discuss his buisness in as much as I need to tell y’all about the fallout when people perceive you to be making too much money. D-Block made sure that we lived leisurely and lavishly when I was in town. Magic City and Club Nikki’s were the pre-game spots and then Al Capone’s or someone’s townhouse would be where we would end up. We would steady stay rolling back to his crib around sun up. Sleep alll day, play videogames and eat cereal untill 4pm then drive up to the Clark campus to holler at co-eds. This was my dudes lifestyle.

I was all too happy to play weedcarrier to my homey’s madness maybe because I was honestly the weedcarrier. I carried the weed and other sundry contraband.

Champagne Aspirations, Malt Liquor Reality…

I’m secretly dying a million deaths inside my mind right now. I desperately wanted the Air Jordan retro Championship pack and the release date is this weekend but all my BRed (you see it) is tied up in my wedding planning. Boo hoo. I can’t get down with the hype.

The Champagne and Cigar 6s looks to be one of the most legendary releases for the Jordan Brand in quite some time. Both pairs are premium leather with all kinds of details throughout the shoes. I’m most hyped for the gold aglets (lace tips) and the championship ring as a lacelock.

I was type frosty on the PoloRL Wimbledon collection this year simply because I haven’t really aced an outfit yet from the series.

The pieces are mmm-kay. Nothing too crazy which is prA’Li due to the games being played in England and British swag generaly being more bland than everything else. Still I saw a couple of I.T.’s I might would consider if the fLOurishments presented themselves…

The ballboy jacket and the crewneck sweatshirt are both clean and sharp at the same time. Now if only there were some kicks that would fux with these pieces.

Oh snap!!! adidas did the damn thing and dropped some tennis shoes to pay homage to the matches at Wimbledon. Well played adidas. Well played.

And by well played I mean the Rod Laver. Leather upper and suede toe cap? I know my man Dirty Jerz is copping two(2) pairs minimum. THIS is a championship Rod Laver.

By the way adidas, I’ma pretend you didn’t put this Forest Hills into the Wimbledon pack since this shoe clearly belongs in a U.S. Open pack.

Maybe next year adidas drops a ‘Grand Slam’ pack with the Rod Laver, Stan Smith, Forest Hills and Grand Prix styles? How about it adidas?
