Download: “Total Chaos” feat. Andrew Davis, Senor Kaos, & 4-IZE. Produced By Fokeezy

This track just dropped yesterday… check it out.


“Total Chaos” is the first single from Fokis’ upcoming project “After The A3C” which was put together by Fokis’ company Loyalty Digital Corp. It is a compilation style album that features various artists and producers that were at the A3C last year (2010). “Total Chaos” features Señor Kaos, 4-Ize & Andrew Davis II, and is produced by Fokeezy (the name Fokis uses as a producer); “I have been a producer for many years but out of respect for my homie Focus… (Formerly of Aftermath Ent.) I use the name Fokeezy as a producer so people don’t get us confused. People always call me Fokeezy, that is like my nick name so its all good” laments Fokis.

The A3C hip-hop festival takes place in Atlanta GA, once a year in October for 3 days and is filled with performances, panels, meet & greets and great networking opportunites. “The A3C festival, to me represents Hip-Hop at it’s purest form, it is an event that every person who likes hip-hop should attend at least once in they’re lifetime” says Fokis. I heard some one refer to it as a “hip-hop candy store.” This project will give the listener who did not attend the festival an idea of what the A3C festival is all about” Fokis’ A3C project is slated for release in late March and you can expect appearances from Sha Stimuli, Esso, Punchline, Stryfe & many more.

Stay tuned

Movie: J Dilla “Still Shining”

I caught this video about a week ago around Dillas birthday on Feb. 7th via Frolab. Just getting a chance to post it. As you know the month of February is pretty crazy as we celebrate Black History Month but also the losses of Big Pun, Big L, and J Dilla who passed away 3 days after his Birthday on Feb 10th.

“J.Dilla: Still Shining” from B.Kyle on Vimeo.

Created in 2006, this remembrance piece is created as a tribute to the memory and legacy of James “J.Dilla” Yancey. This is a piece designed for his fans and supporters who knew of his accomplishments before February 2006 and those that have grown to appreciate his genius. Here, we gain a greater insight and understanding about our musical icon.

Dir. By B.Kyle

Rest In Peace J. Dilla. Your Influence Is Still Shining.

Foot Fetish: Nike Air Royal Foamposites Are Back!!!

The moment many sneaker heads have been waiting for. The Nike Air Royal Blue Foamposites are BACK! Originally worn by Penny Hardaway in 1997, this shoe was a glimpse into the future in technology for sneakers. It was also the most expensive sneaker I had ever seen in my life (at the time) with a price point of $180. This Saturday February 12th, 2011 the Sneaker Gods will be blessing us with a re-release of the Nike Air Royal Foamposites. The last time we saw this shoe was in 2007 (10 years after it was originally released) and they flew off the shelves pretty quickly. This time around the foams will cost you $200 before tax. I hope you have been saving up.


One of the most iconic basketball sneakers of all-time, the Penny Hardaway “Royal” Nike Air Foamposite One is set to make another return to retail tonight. Originally released in 1997 and last seen in 2007, the “Penny” Foams feature a truly innovative design, with flowing lines complimenting a metallic blue molded foam shell and black nubuck upper. Penny branding, a carbon fiber support plate and ‘icy’ translucent outsole put the finishing touches on a shoe that still seems ahead of its time.

Shoe Info:

02/12/2011 Nike Air Foamposite One LE
Color: Dark Neon Royal/White-Black
Style: 314996-500
Price: $200.00

Here is a video with good ole Sneaker Dave from TheShoeGame showing the difference between the 2007 foams and the 2011′s.

And here is some classic footage of Penny Hardaway making the shoes famous on the court. When Penny wasn’t hanging out with Lil Penny and shooting commercials with Tyra Banks and Spike Lee, he was on the court giving opponents the Business!
