Can We All Just Get A Cone?

Friday, July 27th, 2012

On this week’s episode of the Combat Jack Show, our news anchor Matt Raz gave us a story about the beef between Mr.Softee and the YoGo trucks. You can see in the pic above that the confection caravans needed to be separated by the water dog dealer. That’s literally beef.

I can see that Mr.Softee was trying to break away from his decades old rep that he was soft in the streets, but let’s face it, frozen yogurt is the wave right now. Mr.Softee had his run. He was the dude who took out the Good Humor man, but every king must eventually relinquish his crown.

Mr.Softee better start making nice with the YoGo guys because Ben & Jerry’s, Stonyfield Farms and a bunch of others are looking to muscle in on their marketshare. In NYC it’s all about getting me to the greeks [ll].

Get Ready For Clark Kent…

What’s cray is that we sat with Clark Kent for a couple of hours and didn’t even get close to talking about his presence within the sneaker game. Dude is THAT deep in the history of rap and Hip-Hop. Listen…

Tito Lopez: The Blues

Friday, July 27th, 2012

When I heard this song a few months ago I knew this would be a smash hit for Tito Lopez. There really isn’t a more American genre of Black music than the Blues. It truly identifies jazz, rock, funk and everything that his been watered down into the popular music sphere.

That’s because the Blues is just raw spirituality in sonic form. The word and chords are real and honest. If you can’t relate you might just be a robot, but even an android would get a tear in its eye to this music.

I kept my shit eye level for this latest Air Jordan retro release. I like the 7s, but not more than the 6s and if I had my choice I would score another pair of the Olympic 6s before I shell out for the Barcelona 7s. Yeah, yeah I know, “Jordan WORE the Barcelona 7s!”. Shut the fux up already!

I’m promising myself that I won’t do anymore lineup release videos because I feel like I might be a part of the problem why people are hyping over sub-par shoes. Maybe if I stopped caring then so would the kids? Ha! That will never happen since the machine put in place to make these kids nutts isn’t gonna stop hyping this shit up.

Sneakers might be the perfect storm of Madison Avenue marketing meets nostalgia. I catch the fever just like every other American. Now please watch my version of anti-hype HYPE.
