A young Nigeria native youth flaunts his self-named clothing line “Kevin Imonfirie” throughout the streets of New York City. The 20-year-old emigrated to the U.S in 2007 with no fashion sense until his birthday of his Sophomore year of High School. “… It was my birthday, and I couldn’t afford to get a nice outfit to wear on that day, so I went to a local thrift store and picked out a pair of ice blue Levi denim jacket and customized it!” Revamping this jacket, provoked a new fashion style within his school. With his first unexpected offer on the denim jacket, it became evident that being a designer was what he wanted to pursue in the future!

After many unavailing solo projects and collaborations, Kevin Imongirie launched his brand in 2015, selling out his first inventory. Kevin hopes his brand will reach a sky rocket limit as he continues to work on making his brand significantly distinctive to his consumers.

Having a calendar like structure, each month blooms a new style and models. Check out January’s collection and shop for the upcoming months at www.kevinimongirie.com

They say that it’s great to have friends in high places, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. A friend of mine, who happens to be in radio, invited me out to a private event held at the Marquee in NYC on Tuesday, July 18th. Little did I know that my evening would be spent amongst big names like Mr. Kevin Liles, Tee Grizzley, London on da Track, Busta Rhymes, Phresher, Grafh, LouGotCash, Smack White, and more– in celebration of the launch of the Freestyle 50 Challenge Part II.

Kevin Liles, whom is a media guru, co-founder of 300 Entertainment, and has served as head-honcho of various other entities, is back with part II of the #Freestyle50Challenge– looking for another star. Now let me remind you of who 300 Ent. houses–Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Migos, Eric Bellinger, Tee Grizzley, Frank Ocean, and Shy Glizzy to say the least; who would miss an opportunity like this? Here’s the irresistible part about the Freestyle 50 challenge… rappers have to upload a video of them spitting the hottest bars over Tee Grizzley’s ‘No Effort’ in hopes for $10,000, singles deal with 300 Ent., and a track made by the one and only, London on da Track. Once again I’ll say, WHO WOULD MISS OUT ON AN OPPORTUNITY LIKE THIS? Submissions will be viewed by Kevin Liles and his team through Instagram and Twitter (technology changes everything, no excuses!) Make sure to use the tags #Freestly50challenge, @verizon, and @300ent to get noticed. Hopefully, if your freestyle is hot enough, you’ll be the next big thing on 300, and on your way to stardom.

Here’s a message from Kevin Liles himself. Watch below.

 

Here’s some clips from my amazing night at the exclusive #Freestly50Challenge launch party in NYC.

The merch creative celebrates heartfelt lyrics heard on Welcome To Fazoland’s songs “Mamma I’m Sorry” and “Write Your Name”. All new merch is available via his website.

“I remember, comin’ in middle of the night my eyes red. You asked me why and I ain’t wanna tell you cause my guys dead.” – “Mamma I’m Sorry” G. Herbo

Additionally, the merchandise boasts the N.L.M.B (Never Leave My Brothers) movement, one meant to inspire and hold each other accountable, especially those in Chicago aspiring to a better life.

Pharrell, 42 (born Pharrell Lanscilo Williams) is an American singer, rapper, and record producer, creating countless hits for Hip-hop and R&B music globally. He will be celebrating his birthday on April 5th, but he has something more exciting in the works. Pharrell has a signature sneaker with Adidas, which will be available with Adidas PW ZX 333 (the top running shoe in the 80’s and 90’s).

On 27 March 2015, Pharrell launched his Superstar Adidas collection, which had an international impact. His 50 shades of colorful sneakers with a mixture of Adidas original and Pharrell’s flair for color, express diversity for everyone. Anyone can have a particular style. The price of Superstar sneakers is $90 (on the Adidas website).

Nothing has been confirmed for the new Adidas collection, but Pharrell posted a video on his Instagram of him dancing with a teal colored pair of sneakers. It appears he is keeping up with tradition, vibrant colors and a keen sense of craftsmanship.

The featured video shows reinforced neoprene at the base of the sneaker with breathable mesh on top (toecap). Other features of the sneaker are the traditional three-striped lace-up, which are stitched on the sides.

No word yet on a release date, price, or name of the sneakers. You can view Pharrell’s dancing sneakers right here.
