If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep?
WOW!!! Thats a great question! Hmmmm If I could only keep one pair, I would stick with the Nike Air Trainers in Knicks Colors. A) Nike Air Trainers are the most Comfortable shoes EVER, at least in my opinion. B) Orange and Blue are my favorite colors just check my Blog to see for yourself.
What’s on your iPod right now?
Creative Control Radio Show. It’s the radio show that I co-host along with Dj Grandman. Grand always comes with the exclusives. With both our music industry connects, we get a lot of exclusives from Hip Hop artists.
Right now I’m listening to: The AOK Crew from New York: Homebody Sandman, Fresh Daily, P Casso, as well as J Live, Estelle, Ice Cube, Killer Mike, Gnarls Barkley, Tanya Morgan, and Janelle Monae.
What’s your Favorite ATL food?
Hmmmmm no Diss, but ATL doesn’t really have food that you can call ATL’s! Does It? A lot of people say Soul Food, but you can get Soul Food anywhere. And I’ve actually had the BEST Soul Food up north, not down south.
The Pizza sucks in ATL, and I don’t eat Beef or Pork, so RIBS aren’t really my thing. My favorite type of food is Pasta and I when I want a cheap pasta dish I hit up Little Azio. You def get your moneys worth, and the atmosphere is real clean.
What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
Back in the day when I first got here it was Lenox Mall – thats where all the girls from Spelman would be hanging out. And you would always see the rappers there (which meant MORE girls were around). I saw Naughty By Nature, Redman, Wu Tang, Jay Z, Nas, Shaq, Outkast, Jermaine Durpi, ETC. But Lenox fell off yeeears ago.
I would say now, nowhere in particular. I don’t hang out as much (don’t really have the time too). Some of the night spots I frequent are MJQ | Django | Apache Cafe | and Cenci.
What are your Pet Peeves?
People calling me always trying to get something, or trying to get in somewhere for free. These same people are NEVER around when you need something. Also hate people who get caught up in the Hype. Like if your walking around with a pair of Questlove Air Force Ones on, I need you to know who Questlove is, at least what group he’s apart of.
Big Shouts to the brothas who help me run my compnay and Blog. My Brand Manager Chicagorilla | Director of New Media Inori | and my Field Manager OZ B.
