WTF are THOSE??!!

Kanye has whipped the sneaker-nerds into a frenzy ever since he hit the Grammy stage with these mystery Nikes. In a recent interview with the NY Times’ The Moment, ‘Ye made a quick mention about the ambiguous sneakers, simply saying “ I can’t talk about them because they’re not out yet.” It’s no secret that Nike gave Kanye a shoe, but giving him his own silhouette? Damnnnnnn—Word to Jeezy. We’ll keep you updated as we get more information about these 1 of 1s.

J-1's drop Winter....'08-'09!!!

The shoe that started it all, the Jordan 1 in a Black/Red colorup is slated to release next winter as an exclusive to JB Lifestyle accounts. As Sneakerfiles reports, four colorways of the 1 will drop—all clocking in at reasonable price tags under $150. Hard release dates to come soon. Plan ahead.

Nice caps from UNDEFEATED!! COP ONE!!

The trucker cap fad was huge in the States years ago thanks to celebrities like Ashton Kutcher. Eventually the trucker cap was replaced by the Fitted Caps and this style of headwear is still going strong in the States. However in Asia, the trucker caps paint a different story. Although the Fitteds have slowely emerged into the Asian market, majority of hat wearers still go for the trucker. So to satisfy both fitted and trucker cap fans, New Era has decided to team up with UNDFTD to create this Strikes Trucker Ball Cap giving you the best of both worlds. This cap will be available in four colors and will be released in Japan at Undefeated stores on March 8th.

Lauryn Hill back in the spotlight??

Lauryn Hill may be back on the big screen soon if Rita Marley, widow of reggae icon Bob Marley, has her way. According to Billboard, Marley wants Lauryn to play her.

"Lauryn would be ideal [to play me]" said Marley, who is executive producing the first-ever biopic of her late husband. Her husband's son with Janet Hunt, Rohan, is married to Ms. Hill. "She sees my life as her life."

The movie will be an adaptation of Rita Marley's 2004 book No Woman No Cry: My Life With Bob Marley. The script is currently being written by Lizzie Borden, who is currently in Jamaica completing it.

The project is tentatively set to begin filming early next year, and is projected to have a late 2009 release date. Producer Rudy Langlais says the film will be an "epic romance," which includes the Marley's life and the assassination attempt on them. "It's miraculous that Rita is still here after being shot in the head," said Langlais.

The project will be shot in Jamaica as well as other locations, and Marley will be played by two actors - one portraying him at age 15, and another as an adult. Marley even suggested her grandson Stefan, whom she says is "the spitting image" of the singer.

"Every inch of me is in there," says Marley, "and I don't want a fairy tale or Cinderella story."

Nike SB "BO" P-Rod

The P-Rod makes a new transformation into a high cut version. This is probably the first high cut version to be released and former Nike SB head honcho Sandy Bodecker has the honor of designing this. This BO Rod is the next in line of the series that saw the likes of the Hiroshi Fujiwara P Rod and the Tinker Hatfield P Rod. Like the previous ones this is extremely limited so watch out this March.
