Social Media Reacts To Nike’s Cringeworthy “Pushin’ P” Tweet

https hypebeast.com image 2021 07 drake nike air force 1 certified lover boy release info 1

“Pushin’ P” had a good run of one week. Now companies are adopting the new phrase in order to “appeal” to a younger generation. Companies like IHop, who people wouldn’t think to have a strong social media presence, are using the phrase and getting cosigns from Gunna himself. On Thursday, Nike attempted to join in on the fun and talk about how they are “Pushin’ P” in Beaverton.

“We had an internal meeting, and without getting into details, we’re pushin P all year,” the sneaker and apparel giant tweeted.

The tweet caught the attention of Gunna who even responded to the tweet, teasing the idea of a Gunna and Nike collab.

“Nike X GUNNA is P” the Atlanta rapper tweeted.

The reaction was split to Nike’s tweet. Some people applauded the company for joining in on the “P” hype, and others took the opportunity to vent their frustrations with the company.

Whether or not you think Nike is “Pushin P,” you can’t deny that the company has some SERIOUS areas for improvement.

adidas Originals x Prada Launch User-Generated NFT Art Project

Screen Shot 2022 01 20 at 8.54.46 AM

After establishing its ambitions for the new digital frontier, adidas Originals is diving deeper into the metaverse to introduce a new chapter of its ongoing partnership with luxury collaborator, Prada

The two iconic brands are joining forces to disrupt the metaverse through a charitable lens that puts creators at the forefront. Prada’s foray into the metaverse will take the form of a global, user-generated NFT art project, utilizing blockchain Polygon Web3. This first-of-its-kind interactive platform will allow the metaverse community to contribute to an NFT made up of 3,000 individual tiles that will then be developed into one final art piece by digital artist & educator Zach Lieberman.

The final adidas x Prada NFT piece will be auctioned off with primary sale profits going to climate-focused organizations Slow Factory and UNESCO Sea Beyond, and a percentage of sales will be split between the creators of the tile artwork – including any secondary sales of Lieberman’s final work each time it is sold. Acknowledging the fundamental role of creators, all 3,000 works featured in the final NFT project will be minted as unique NFTs that each contributor will own and can sell on the secondary market.

Each tile and the final piece will be inspired by the recently releasedPrada Re-Nylon collection – a sustainable, reimagined luxury sportswear collection, released in collaboration with adidas, that is composed of Prada’s signature, recyclable Re-Nylon fabric.

Raekwon Joins With Diadora and Foot Locker to Launch a New Community Initiative

Diadora 9

Raekwon’s debut studio album, Only Built For Cuban Linx, was released in 1995. Raekwon, Diadora, and Foot Locker, Inc. have collaborated to produce “Community Linx,” a series of product capsules built with and linked to local communities, more than 25 years later. The trio will empower developing local music talent with the tools, resources, and information they need to improve their game with each release.

The campaign begins on January 27 with the release of a universal Diadora N9002 and an NYC-inspired Diadora N9002, both of which will be available in men’s sizes exclusively at Foot Locker and Champs Sports for $120. Raekwon’s signature is on the heel of both sneakers, which include a nylon-suede upper and a rubber outsole for greater durability and traction. The blue and orange N9002 NYC is available, whereas the black and grey N9002 is universal. The city of Philadelphia will be represented in the upcoming launch. Following that, New Era hats will be available in Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Houston, each of which will be related to a certain footwear collection. Every N9002 release in the Community Linx initiative will also come in a custom-designed packaging with local landmarks.

Raekwon, Diadora, and Foot Locker, Inc. picked 16 up-and-coming musicians from NYC for a four-week beat-making course conducted by producer and DJ Scram Jones in support of the N9002 NYC. From the use of various tools through mixing and mastering a track, each participant will gain important insight into the beat-making process.

At a private event at the Foot Locker 181st Street Community Store, they will have the opportunity to submit their beats to Raekwon and special guest Dave East. They’ll get direct comments and advice from established personalities in the industry, as well as take part in a Q&A and receive a pair of the N9002 NYC.

“I concepted Community Linx because I wanted to bring music and sneaker culture together in a meaningful way,” said Raekwon. “I’m thankful that Diadora and Foot Locker, Inc. believed in my vision. Together, we aim to inspire the next generation of music talent by providing them with tools and resources to hone their craft. I can’t wait to hear their work. Every sneaker capsule represents the hustle of each city and hopefully serves as a reminder to keep chasing your dreams.”

“Our latest collaboration with Raekwon is built on a shared commitment to community and passion for music and sport,” said Claudio Bora, CEO of Diadora. “We’re excited to provide young musicians with an opportunity to gain experience from some of the best artists in the business, and each city with a sneaker that celebrates its unique qualities.” 

Following that, local activations in Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Houston will provide talent similar opportunities to engage with Raekwon and local professionals, culminating in showcase events at a Foot Locker site.

Is Shia LaBeouf Responsible for Kanye West’s Style?

Shia LaBeouf Denies Each and Every Allegation in Ex Girlfriend FKA twigs Abuse Lawsuit

It is no doubt that the artist formally known as Kanye West is one of the world’s most influential fashion icons of the 21st century. Over the past 7 years, the billionaire artist has developed one of the most in-demand footwear brands with Yeezy.

His decade-long deal with GAP launched its first two collections with hoodies and jackets in 2021. As expected it sold out and resellers have put it up for $7,500 on GOAT.

With a swag that bears no comparison, a fan believes Ye has taken his style from Holes actor, Shia LaBeouf. In a TikTok video, the fan refers to a 2018 interview with Esquire where LaBeouf recounts the “Hurricanes” artist “took all my f**king clothes.”

Since that time Ye has become a billionaire and inked a 10-year deal with GAP. His decade-long deal with GAP launched its first two collections with hoodies and jackets in 2021. As expected it sold out and resellers have put it up for $7,500 on GOAT.

It looks like he attempted to link with Shia back in 2020 for a YZY x GAP photoshoot, but he apparently didn’t show up according to Yeezy.

“Shia is cap,” tweeted the DONDA artist. “Shia was deposed to do the first YZY GAP shoot and he never showed up.”

On Friday, Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga was announced to make the incredible product available to everyone at all times,” said Ye.

Safaree on Kanye West: “I Really Hate How He’s Dressing”

Safaree Samuels Threatens To Leave Love and Hip Hop Following Controversy With Erica Mena

Safaree has become the surveyor of style. In a moment on Twitter, Safaree hit the timeline and took aim at Kanye West’s fashion selection.

“I’ve always been a Kanye fan but I really hate how he’s dressing these last 2 years,” Safaree shared. “He use to be inspiration with clothes and jewelry. Now this guy just wears hoodies and black gloves and it bothers me.”

After posting the tweet, The Shade Room also caught Tank replying, putting Safaree on blast. “Says the guy with no clothing line, no clothing endorsements, and absolutely no fashion sense,” Tank wrote.

Safaree’s response: “Hey I use to be a fan of you… now you suck.”

You can see their back and forth here.

Moneybagg Yo Honors Virgil Abloh with new Louis Vuitton

MoneyBagg Yo Earns His First No. 1 Single With 'Wockesha'

Moneybagg Yo is dripped out in Louis V in memory of Virgil Abloh.

The death of the fashion and cultural icon shocked the world last month. The 41-year-old designer passed away after a private battle with cancer. He was laid to rest earlier this month.

Since his passing many have honored the Off-White founder in their own way. Moneybagg Yo recently took to Instagram to flex his latest $25,000 Louis Vuitton jacket.

“I See A Million Next To A Shark I Probably Dive In #RipVirgilAbloh” Bagg wrote in the photo’s caption.

From the comments, fellow rappers approved of his drip selection.

“25 thousand on a jacket wear it once,” said Lil Baby, while Yung Bleu told Bagg he was “fresh as a mf no cap.”

The Memphis native dropped the video for his latest single, “I Gave It” on Christmas Eve.
