JAY-Z – 4:44 [Bonus Songs]

ARTIST: JAY-Z
ALBUM: 4:44 (BONUS SONGS)
LABEL: S. CARTER ENTERPRISES
TIDAL: HTTP://TID.AL/444BONUS

JAY-Z released his new album 4:44 four weeks ago. Since, the thirteenth studio album from the legendary rapper went on to rack up some pretty good numbers and accolades. JAY secured his 14th overall No. 1 album, went platinum in just five days, released five music videos in support of the album and announced an accompanying tour.

The physical copy of the album hit shelves no long after the initial release and featured three unheard bonus tracks. Those being “Adnis,” “Blue’s Freestyle / We Family” and “MaNyfaCedGod.” All three songs leaked when the physical version hit stores, but at 4:44 am this morning, Hov released them exclusively on TIDAL, just hours after debuting the “Adnis” video.

Features on the bonus edition include James Blake and Blue Ivy Carter.

This Ewing Athletics Concept Pays Tribute To The Late Great Anthony Mason

Above you will find one of the coolest Ewing Athletics releases we’ve seen in quite a long time. The Knicks colors on Ewing Athletics models is nothing new, but the tribute behind this pair is what makes it a special one.

This latest version of the Ewing Athletics Concept pays homage to the late great New York Knick, Anthony Mason. The shoe is noted as a collaboration with Mason’s son, Anthony Mason Jr. This limited edition version of the Ewing Athletics Concept rocks a NY Knicks’ themed colorway of Blue and Orange, but features that really make the shoe look and feel special include the #14 (Mason’s jersey number) on the front of the laces, an embroidered 14 with wings on the heel accompanied by “MASON” right below it.

 

Jimmy Jazz held a launch event in Mason’s hometown of Jamaica, Queens yesterday. Anthony Mason Jr. was on hand.

Proceeds from the shoe will be donated to Mason Jr.’s Family on Three Foundation

Want a pair? Pick these up directly from Ewing Athletics for $130.

Are You Ready For The OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Max 90 ICE?

Rumors began surfacing this weekend that the OFF-WHITE x Nike Collection could possibly be releasing on September 1st. Today we bring you new images of one of the many sneakers from the collection, the OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Max 90 ICE.

Just like most o the other pairs from the collection, this iteration of the Air Max 90 ICE has been deconstructed as it features what looks like an “unfinished” design. The shoe comes with a leather and suede upper in a cream/off-white with unique Nike and OFF-WHITE branding placed all throughout the shoe. An icy blue translucent midsole along with a cream outsole complete the look.

Take a look at latest images above and stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates. Do you hope to pick up a pair when they release?

Meek Mill – Price

ARTIST: MEEK MILL
SONG: “PRICE”
PRODUCER: STREETRUNNER, TARIK AZZOUZ
ALBUM: WINS AND LOSSES
DIRECTOR: WILL NGO

Philly’s own Meek Mill has been attacking the Internet and the streets with the Wins and Losses content and he’s not stopping until he releases a video for every song. From the movie to the visuals of the tracks, it’s just the “Price” of being great. In the clip for his next record, Meek is in the studio cooking up that Maybach Music, then hits the town in the Rolls Royce. This is one of the more introspective and soulful joints on the album.
