As one of the hottest shoe brands today Vans announced an upcoming collaboration for the culture. The brand, along with Sony Music’s merchandising company Thread Shop, will be releasing an A Tribe Called Quest themed capsule collection.


Malik Taylor aka Phife Dawg of a A Tribe Called Quest passed away unexpectedly in March, and Hip-Hop is still mourning. However, smiles and nods of appreciation are on deck since a street (one guess which) in Queens, NY will be named after the 5 Foot Assassin.

After hearing of Phife Dawg’s passing, Mac Miller released a timely song as a homage to the legendary A Tribe Called Quest MC titled “5 Foot Assassin: Larry Fisherman Tribute.”

Detroit’s own Slum Village teams up with Mick Boogie to release, The Dirty Slum, a new project featuring a star studded lineup that includes Phonte, De La Soul, Phife, Black Milk, and Big Sean. My only question is, does this include eLZhi?! Guess you’ll have to download and find out.
