THE "BIG DANCE"

As the NCAA Basketball Tournament Championship is upon us, we wanted to look over some of the most notable championship teams over the past ten years. From Raymond Felton and Marvin Williams 2005 Tarheels team to Anthony Davis and the 2012 Kentucky Wildcats. Although hard to believe, that 2005 was ten years ago it’s an interesting thought to see how some of these players have gone on to blossom within the NBA ranks, while others have left their legacy in the NCAA. 

2005 North Carolina Tar Heels

2006 & 2007 Florida Gators 

2008 Kansas Jay Hawks

2011 UCONN Huskies 

2012 Kentucky Wildcats

2014 UCONN Huskies

I'M FROM COMPTON

We brought you the Straight Outta Compton trailer a few weeks ago, so we thought it'd be a good time to revisit the pioneers of Compton and the newbies. Check out some of our favorites from N.W.A. to Compton's Most Wanted to Kendrick, and of course, The Game and Dre. We're taking it straight to the city of Compton.

In Kendrick Lamar's video for "King Kunta," he pays homage to Tupac's "California Love" remix video where 'Pac performed at the Compton Swap Meet in 1996. Lamar was one of the kids in the crowd, so he took it back to his roots & performed at the same spot in his latest video.

 Compton, all about that gansta boogie.

JUST A G' THING

The days of the stretch Town Car limo, equipped boomerang trunk antenna is long behind us. Known for their armored vehicle manufacturing, Inkas have out done themselves with this immaculate Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. Not only is the SUV built like a tank, it is also stretched to give maximum comfort while enjoying the plush, amenity-filled interior. The vehicle’s 544 horsepower 5.5L twin turbo engine gives you more than enough power to haul around town.

IN MY WHITE TEE


Sometimes, it’s all about getting back to basics. Whether it’s the illest beat or slickest gear, showing respect for the roots of an art form is what it's about. When we designed La Familia MMXIV, we wanted to throw it back to the creativity, rawness and inspiration of the streets. Keeping in that tradition, we created a little homage to the white teefresh, clean, and always in style.

From Pac to Dre (and of course, The Game), here are a few of our favorites:


Layer up that white tee with chains, rock it with your go-to jeans, or throw it on with your best shades—minimal doesn't ever mean boring and we have the photos to prove it:

Need your own? We’ve got you covered—from our Cali King Pocket Tee to the Crest Tee to the Money Box Tee, the white tee has never looked better.

Who Is the Greatest Basketball Player (Fictional) Of All Time?

Photo via Google Images

The folks over at Grantland put together an interesting list of some the greatest fictional basketball players to ever step foot on set. The list covers everything from Best Monologue, Best Game Played, Most Devastating Thing That Happened in a Basketball Movie to Top 10 G.O.A.T. Players. Although this is more fiction than non-fiction, it doesn't hurt to entertain the idea. Read the list here, at Grantland.com

P.S. Our pick for G.O.A.T, Jesus Shuttlesworth.

Yeezy Part 3

Hate it or love it, the newest “Yeezy” sneaker has shaken up the internet. This time teaming up with Adidas, Kanye West, has designed a sneaker that ensues a minimal aesthetic, but with progressive tones. The two characteristics are balanced and don’t battle with each other. 
 
This first colorway was highly sought after, but not too many people were lucky enough to get a pair. Web browsers crashed and tensions were high with those trying to purchase a pair. Will the next colorway cause a similar frenzy?
