OSVC: Eric B. & Rakim - Microphone Fiend

Rakim is still one of the best lyricist of our generation and Eric B. was one of the dopest producers in the 80's. This is a classic and one of my personal favorites!

Shelby Cruiser by Felt Bicycles

Felt Bicycles is paying homage to the iconic Shelby GT350. They definitely went all-out on this limited edition Shelby Cruiser. The designers took styling cues straight from classic Shelby GT350 racing traditions. They paid very close attention to detail, which is very noticeable and intriguing to say the least. The Shelby Cruiser features the legendary Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue paint that was only found on the famed Shelby GT350.


If you are an 80's baby or just know about premium classic brands then you know this is special. MCM was like Fendi and Gucci back in the day, and still looks good years later. This vintage MCM collection is simply awesome! This vintage MCM bags feature embossed premium leather with MCM logos detailed all over it. And the ever so classic, signature MCM crest engraved in a super classy gold brass plate. Check out this vintage MCM collection now available at REVIVE. Check out more photos below.

Eric Koston x Kobe Bryant Nike SB Eric Koston 1

What would you get if two superstar athletes from totally different sports joined forces? I don't know exactly, but Nike knows what would happen if their sneakers did! By now the story's out that skateboarding innovator Eric Koston, and 5 time NBA World Champion Kobe Bryant have collaborated to create the hybrid sneaker called the Nike SB 'Kobe x Koston' Zoom Eric Koston One.  The purpose is to celebrate the launch of Koston's first signature sneaker from Nike SB with all proceeds going toward improving LA playgrounds. 

Nike Air Force 1 Low Premium Denim

There are few materials that looks good and goes well with anything.  Denim, which has been a staple in American fashion is one of them.  It has stood the test of time and since the late 1700s, has evolved and been refined into what it is today.  Over the years with so many somewhat mediocre attempts at creating the ultimate denim product, Nike Sportswear has given us another example as to why their iconic shoe (named after the President's jet)  has been in existence since 1982!

Whillas and Gunn Nullabor Rucksack.

Every man out here knows it takes great skill to walk the fine line that separates being fashion forward and straight up 'controversial'.  With life being hard in itself, we don't need anything else to make it even more complicated.  Here's a little something for the guys that accomplishes two things flawlessly without creating that controversy discussed earlier.  Whillas & Gunn have made this rucksack with pockets easily accessible via a 9" side zip that you can reach even with the reinforced, adjustable, padded straps on your shoulders.  Gaining access to the main inside compartment comes by way of unfastening two large leather straps, moving the flap over then undoing the drawstring that holds the mouth closed.  Simple, functional and stylish.  Something everyone would appreciate.  So, for all the real men out here chuck the embarrassing man-bags and go scoop you one of these  here for $170.

The Sora Electric Motorcycle

 What's going on motor-tech heads?  We've covered some pretty cool stuff, but I think this takes the cake.  The perfectionists at Lito Green Motion have taken an already existing concept, and made it better. Sort of like re-inventing the wheel, the engineers have seamlessly meshed function, form, technology and practicality all in one package they call The Sora.  Looking at it you say, but it looks like an ordinary motorcycle, right? No folks, this isn't just another 2-wheel performance sport bike, this is a fully electronic motorcycle that produces 708 lb-ft capable of going 120 MPH with a 185 mile range.  That's not all it comes with though; the Sora comes with a lot of world's firsts for a motorcycle including CVT (continuous varying transmission), electric seat, touch screen GPS and keyless go!  Lito Green Motion is asking for $44k+, but considering that you can change riding position at the touch of a button and never have to gas up we think that's a lot of bang for your buck!  Take a look at more pictures below.
