Air Jordan 2010 Outdoor – Black/Blue/Orange/Green

Posted in Fashion on June 27th, 2010 by B. Brown

With the weather heating up, its time we take our games from indoor gymnasiums to outdoor parks. For those looking for more streetball-friendly footwear, the Jordan Brand is set to release an outdoor version of the Air Jordan 2010 in August. As we continue to wait for release day, new colorways of the shoe continue to roll out. The most recent of these new colorways is a combination unlike any other seen in the Jordan line before.

A quick glance may have you thinking “Knicks” with this pair. Black leather and nubuck on the upper works with a brightly colored blue and orange sole to give the shoes a New York look. That all changes when you pay closer attention to the contrast stitching. In addition to blue and orange contrast stitching, yellow and green threads can be seen on the toe and heel. If that wasn’t enough color pop for you, the shoes come complete with a set of green laces. No release information is available for this pair yet, but Sole Collector will keep you posted. -B.Rich

Playboy to Sue Drake Over “Best I Ever Had”

Posted in Major Artists, News on June 27th, 2010 by B. Brown

Looks like sampling can get you in trouble, even if the track is fire. Whomp, whomp Drake. The Young Money prince has been sued for sampling Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds 1975 hit “Fallin’ In Love.”

Well, according to the document filed at U.S. District Court in downtown Los Angeles, just before closing time, Playboy Enterprises claims that Drake and company need to pay them for the use of their song. Yes, we’re talking about Playboy, as in Hef’s company. They’re claiming Drake stole part of their song.

The suit accuses Drake , Cash Money Records and Universal of Copyright Infringement. The song sampled at the beginning of “Best I Ever Had” is allegedly their song, “Fallin’ In Love,” by Hamilton, Joe Frank and Dennison/Reynolds. The copyright for the music belongs to Playboy Music, Inc. and Plaintiff, Playboy Enterprises, is its successor in interest. Did y’all know Playboy owned music, too?? Hef sure has his hands in many different cookie jars!

As part of their copyright claim, Playboy claims that Drake and his crew “knew or should have reasonably known, that the sound recording was protected by copyright…” and that “each Defendant continues to infringe upon Plaintiff’s rights in and to the copyrighted sound recording.”

Since Playboy claims that the “infringing conduct is continuing and ongoing,” they want the court to issue an injunction, which pretty much means that they want the defendants to stop selling/distributing the song, and to stop making money off of it. Of course, Playboy also wants Drake and his peeps to account for all profits, gains and advantages made off of their song, and they want Drake to pay costs and attorneys’ fees. DAYAM!! SO DOES THAT MEAN HUE HEFFNER IS DRAKE’S GHOST WRITER??? -Tila
