Nike threw a launch for their new Sneaker Boots collection at the National Theatre in South Bank the other night. The collection is all about taking your sneakers to the next level and so they have taken classic and modern favourites such as Air Max 90’s and Roshe Run’s and turned them into hi-top boots. Nike have described them as “legends taken to new heights”.
The event was awesome. It took place on the deck of the National Theatre overlooking the River Thames and Nike had transformed the spacious room into a futuristic, yet lavish area for people to network and enjoy free appetisers.
People who were in attendance included myself, G Frsh, Sincere, Jamie Howard, Tia Ward, Blade Brown, Ghetts plus Poet, who hosted the event with Becks from MTV. My homie @REDNivars took some dope shots including the one of us above and artists who performed on the night included Krept & Konan and Mikill Pane.
Big Thanks to Nike, Dominique and Nana for putting on a slick event.

It’s official! After a world wind of a year, Krept & Konan have put pen to paper and signed a major record deal with Virgin-Emi. The duo from South London have been making waves since their debut mixtape Tsunami landed, they then went on to release their acclaimed mixtape Young Kingz this year which charted at 19 in the official UK album charts.
Following all this success the humble lads then went on to scoop Best Newcomer at the MOBO Awards last week and now they have their record deal. A real rags to riches story. Congrats are in order for these two, if there’s anyone that deserves this, it’s them.
The 18th annual MOBO Awards took place in Glasgow, Scotland last night at the Hydro Arena and some of the UK’s biggest stars were out in full force. There were newcomers in attendance like Krept & Konan, Etta Bond and Daley but there were also legends in the building such as So Solid Crew, Gabrielle and Jazzie B.
The awards was hosted by Trevor Nelson and Sarah Jane-Crawford and despite a few technical hiccups, they did a good job of ushering the ceremony along.

With a mixtape that went into the top 20 in the official album charts here in the UK and a MOBO Award nomination, Krept & Konan are riding high right now. So much so that they have decided to release another visual featuring Hustle Gang rapper Chip entitled Young N Reckless.
This is a clean visual and the styling is on point plus the minimal amount of cameos and the way they were edited in, gave this video a touch. The reason I say this is because a lot of artists seem to be cramming their peers into their videos and ruining the final product. Young Kingz is out now.
