Fat Joe and MC Lyte were sighted in Paris getting their playground jones at Quai 54. The 2010 main event featured Dirty South BBQ from the ATL this year, the first non-NYC team to rep the USA, who balled hard but lost to France in the finals.
But let’s go back to 2008, semi-way back retro/respect style and see a filthy dunk contest between Golden Child and Guy Dupuy.
Like him or not, Fat Joe has an ill sneaker collection, lots of platinum, plenty of cars, nine studio albums, and of course, front row courtside Knicks tickets. Joe’s Jealous Ones Still Envy (J.O.S.E.) released in 2001 and went platinum. J.O.S.E. 2 dropped today and will likely sell more than any record that you made! Don’t hate the rapper, hate politics. Don’t hate on his collection, hate that you envy it. We are all Sneaker Heads, sneaker connoisseurs, sneaker collectors… whatever. Joe’s an aficionado like us and we should respect his art and hustle… Plus what he’s done for hip-hop culture.
Who cares if he’s not the only one with Kobe Jordan VII PEs?! Do you have them? Respect was Joe’s first hit record and it’s only fitting. Jealous people are weak. Congrats to Joe for the release of his 9th studio album. Props to Cool Bob, who recorded this sneaker interview for ESPN a few years back. Read More »
