On Dec. 27, 2009, I slid out to Houston’s H-Town Sneaker Summit to spin some records in front of 1,000+ local heads. Bun B of UGK gave me the ridiculous intro on stage that had me buggin’. DJ Greg Street, a world-renowned kicks collector, also showed me mad love while I was spinnin’. Mad props to Kadoma and the whole crew. Look forward to going back!

ANGELO “MUNCH” CRUZ: MISSING IN ACTION–FOR REAL, PART II legends / Jan 5, 2010 / 1:47 am
Just the other day, I posted about NYC playground legend/Puerto Rican Pro League champion Angelo “Munch” Cruz (read it here). Well, today I found the above clip of him doing his thing down in PR. Check the crossover at 5:10!
Unfortunately, Angel Cruz has been missing for the last 10 years. Missing as in there is no record of his existence anywhere–not in any morgue, hospital, prison, where ever. If anyone has information about his whereabouts and would like to reunite him with his concerned family and friends, kindly reach out to Mike Napolitano at firstname.lastname@example.org or 646 239 7450.

At 5′9″, “Munch” was known to cuff it on big men, drop guards on defense, hit 30+ . . . you know, all that street highlight glory that we love talking about here. He was that dude.

Just peeped Cincinnati beating UConn highlights . . . Lance Stephenson hit two freebies with less than a tick on the tock to win it . . . In his first TV interview as Bearcat (courtesy of Fox 19), the Coney Island guard shouted me out for blessin’ him with the nickname “Born Ready.” Good lookin’, fams!
Also, peep him bop the nacho cheese out of a Xavier guard, whoa:
Found this clip titled “The Original Shamgod From Coney Island (Hajji ‘91) on youtube and really enjoyed peeping the vintage pick-up run (plus a young Stephon Marbury is spotted on the sideline, maybe he had next?).
