Diggy Simmons kicked off his Detroit concert in a major way this week, by surprising a fan at their home with tickets.
The son Reverend Run joined FM 98 for a drive to a loyal fan's house where he surprised her and her children.
After dropping by he even posed for pictures with the whole fam and a group of police standing on patrol nearby.
As previously reported, he's currently touring the country with Mindless Behavior on their Scream tour.
Rick Ross makes his first public appearance on 106 & Park and talks about his seizures and taking better care of his health. He also says that as soon as he got home, he finished a collaboration with Jay-Z for his upcoming album. Rick Ross thanks everyone that reached out to him, including 50 Cent.
Today we can preview the upcoming November releases from the Neighborhood Fall/Winter 2011 ‘Gimme Shelter’ Collection. Next to some nice outerwear and shirts, they present solid new accessories, including eyewear, leather gloves and beanies, all getting you ready for the cold days of the year. Look out for a release of these items in the following weeks.
Nike Free technology accentuates the natural motion of a foot in movement. Having debuted in running, FREE technology continues to speak to Nike’s commitment to push the limits of performance footwear. Launching in the early ’90’s on the basketball hardwood, the Nike Huarache basketball shoe was an instant hit. The running crazed 1990’s also saw the Huarache running shoe make a dent in the footwear design landscape. For 2011 both have been modernized with FREE outsoles hybridizing iconic colorways and silhouettes of yesteryear with 21st century tech. Meshing the neoprene bootie comfort and fit with the FREE outsole technology truly maximizes a foot’s motion. The Huarache 2012 running and basketball shoes launch this November.
Detailed images of all three sneakers follow after the jump.
Shot in upstate New York, we present the new Flying Coffin Fall 2011 Collection Lookbook. The Seattle brand continues with a very solid looking and tight offering, ranging from sweaters to t-shirts, caps and some new outerwear. Strong graphics are placed on the tees, while the cut-and-sew is kept rather simple.

Known for his singles “Peso” and “Purple Swag,” young Harlem rapper ASAP Rocky is scheduled to be the next big thing, securing a spot on Drake’s “Club Paradise Tour,” and releasing his first mixtape LIVELOVEA$AP someday soon. Read below to learn more.
A$AP Rocky is… that pretty muthafucka, that’s who he is. He’s the dude that has New York on his back, has hip-hop on his back for that matter. He’s that new up and coming freshman that everybody show’s so much love to. He’s the god of true love and, you know, there’s only a few that hate him. He’s that gold teeth, french braid, Rick Owen wearing muthafucka that the hoes love too. Laughs.
Being born & raised in Harlem, New York… made me the man who I am today. It help me be diverse, especially with the whole fashion influence, you know, downtown and shit like that. It helped me to appreciate different cultures.
Recently Japanese brand visvim re-opened its Sendai F.I.L. flagship store and today we can give you a look at the latest interior by Hiroki Nakamura. As usual each piece of clothing and footwear is treated like an object and nicely presented in wooden vitrines or sitting on tables and bases. Compared to previous F.I.L. stores, visvim decided to go with a slightly darker theme in this case, using more dark wood on both furniture, floors and design elements.
