Download: Fresh Daily – The Brooklyn Good Guy (Free Album)

Recently fellow High Water Music label-mate Fresh Daily released a free album in conjunction with Converse x Foot Action x Complex Magazine entitled “The Brooklyn Good Guy.” I got my ears on this a few weeks back and have been enjoying it so much that I forgot I never shared it with the rest of you. Sorry I was being stingy. Check it out…

Converse & Complex team up with Brooklyn emcee Fresh Daily to present “The Brooklyn Good Guy” 12 tracks of heat to set your summer off right.

Video: Gorillaz w/ Andre 3000 & James Murphy – “DoYaThing”

“A monster of a collab, A beast of a track” is what the Gorillaz new single “DoYaThing” with Andre 3000 is James Murphy is being called.

Sooo first I heard the original 5 minute version of this song about a month ago… Then I hear the raw & uncut 13 minute version… Then I find out there’s a video for this joint… THEN I find out Converse is behind the whole thing. I wonder what I’ll learn next.

Andre 3000 MURDERS the verse on this joint, and really spazzes out on the 13 minute version.

The Gorillaz also have a new limited edition Chuck Taylor All Star collection available for purchase.

Events: Converse Tip Off Party

This past weekend Converse brought it’s Band Of Ballers event to ATL and had the city buzzing something serious. Friday and Saturday Converse hosted several events around the city. It all started with the tip off party this past Friday night.

For one night only the GA Freight Depot was transformed into the house of Converse. As you entered there was a long walk way that displayed all the things the Cons brand has been doing in the ATL community. From donating 3K Basketballs to Atlanta / Dekalb Public Schools, to hosting an Open Gym to take youth off the street, etc.

There also new Converse Basketball product displayed including the Converse Drop Step Basketball shoe which I got a picture off below.

After connecting with the brand it was time for partying. There were several open bars, a T-Shirt station where you could create your own Converse T-Shirt, the Hawks / Bucks game was playing on a big projection screen, TKE fam Dj Mars was spinning, and there was even an indoor court that hosted a 3 point contest and plenty trash talking, hosted by Kenny Burns.

… Mind you this was just the kick off party. The official Band Of Ballers took place that next day with Jay Electronica, Sean Price, Shawty Lo, OJ The Juiceman, Jermanie Dupri, Jim Jones, Of Montreal, Spyda (AND 1), various street ballers, and special guest appearance from Camron who popped up on Jim Jones team in the championship. Jim Jones’ team also won the event for the 2nd time in a row

After the game a special invite only afterparty was hosted at Dallas Austin’s house. BBQ, More drinking courtesy of Belvedere Vodka, Rita’s Italian Ice, live performances, and Mayweather fight watching concluded the weekend.

WHEW… If you think that was a lot, imagine how I felt. Lol. There’s plenty of pics and video from Band of Ballers floating around the net. So instead of posting those same images, I wanted to hit ya’ll with a few pics from the Tip Off event…

Overall Converse did the damn thang in Atlanta. Hopefully they keep up the presence in the market, as well as make the product more readily available.
