Reebok – Question Mid “Blue Toe”

 Reebok has officially announced an August 19 return for its historic Question Mid “Blue Toe” ($50-$160), a noteworthy colorway of Allen Iverson’s first signature basketball shoe introduced during his standout ’96-’97 rookie season. 

Reebok’s original Question Mid would arrive in 1996 at the heart of a basketball footwear revolution, but the brand’s pitch to a young and hopeful Allen Iverson was about much more than a sneaker – it was about their commitment to “A.I.”

“It was a dream come true,” recalled Iverson. “It was close to the same feeling of when you get drafted. Only a certain amount of people have their own signature shoe; that really means you’re special.”

Question Mid has since established itself as one of sneaker history’s most meaningful silhouettes, a representation of Reebok basketball heritage, and a model of sport culture’s greatest legacy.

Succeeding its “OG” predecessor that season, Question Mid “Blue Toe” took center stage on a March night in ’97 as Philly’s highlight-reel rookie point guard, Allen Iverson – wearing the shoe – famously “crossed up“ one of basketball’s greatest players. A symbol of Iverson’s fearless athleticism, that historic moment lives on in the soles of an iconic sneaker.

25 years later, Question Mid “Blue Toe” returns packed with original design elements including a tumbled leather upper, blue pearlized leather toe box, ice rubber outsole, ghillie lacing system, embroidered Vector logos, iconic “Q” heel logo, and a custom rookie Iverson sock liner arriving in OG-inspired Question packaging.

Reebok’s Question Mid “Blue Toe” returns globally August 19 in full-family sizing (Adults/GX0227/$160​, Juniors/GY8820​/$100, Kids/GY8824/$75​, Infants/GY8825/$50) from Reebok.com/US/BasketballFoot LockerChamps SportsHibbett, and other select retailers. Reebok UNLOCKED members will receive one-day early access on August 18, while sneaker boutique Packer is slated to release a limited number of pairs in-store and online August 12.

Exodus: Deluxe Edition

The Marley Family, Island Records, and UMe mark the 45th anniversary of Exodus – named the “Best Album of the 20th Century” by Time magazine in 1999 – with the digital premiere of three of the four nights from Bob Marley & the Wailers’ historic run at London’s Rainbow Theatre and a consolidated, revised digital Exodus: Deluxe Edition.

Following an assassination attempt in Kingston, Jamaica, in December 1976, Bob Marley and his band moved to London – in “exodus” from their home country – and recorded tracks for what became both the Exodus and Kaya albums. Marley’s Exodus, featuring the timeless tracks “Jamming,” “Three Little Birds,” “One Love/People Get Ready,” and the epic title song, came first, which led to early positive reviews, ten early dates around Western Europe and shows at the Rainbow Theatre in London’s Finsbury Park during release week. But an injury to Bob led to the abrupt cancellation of the rest of the Exodus tour, including expected U.S. breakthrough shows scheduled for late summer, leaving June 1-2-3-4 the final performances by the Wailers that year.

“London was one of Daddy’s favorite places to be; it’s the city where his songwriting and creativity thrived. The Exodus album and his shows at The Rainbow are incredible examples of that. I’m so excited that his fans will finally be able to hear all four shows, in their entirety, the way they were meant to be heard, for generations to come.” – Cedella Marley

A select number of tracks from each of the four nights of the Live at the Rainbow recordings have been included on previously released Deluxe Editions of Exodus, and audio and video of the full concert on June 4 was released during the year-long 75th Birthday Celebration, #Marley75, in 2020. Most of the legendary performances from the previous three nights, however, feature slightly different setlists – as well as alternate arrangements – that have never been heard until now. Bob Marley & The Wailers Live at the Rainbow: 1st June 1977 debuted June 3, the exact 45th anniversary of the original album’s release; Live at the Rainbow: 2nd June 1977 followed on June 10; and Live at the Rainbow: 3rd June 1977 concluded the series on June 17. Across the three dates are 29 previously unreleased performances combined – that’s more than ¾ of the shows.

To round out the 45th Anniversary celebration, a revised and newly remastered Exodus: Deluxe Edition was released on June 24. The Deluxe Edition features the ten original tracks from the album, plus 18 Singles & Sessions tracks; 13 of them are culled from two previous Deluxe Editions and adds previously unreleased tracks “Natural Mystic (Alternate Version),” and “The Heathen (Alternate Version),” and the rare 7-inch versions of “Exodus,” “Jamming” and “Punky Reggae Party,’ the original B-side to “Jamming.” In addition to the unreleased tracks, the last two cuts were previously unavailable at all streaming services. Closing the deluxe are two additional bonus tracks: the edited live versions of “So Much Things To Say” from the June 1st show, previously released on the Deluxe Edition of Exodus 40 – The Movement Continues in 2017, and “Exodus,” the finale from the Rainbow’s June 2nd set, previously featured on the album’s 2001 Deluxe Edition. Each performance is otherwise presented unedited within their respective live set. To listen to Bob Marley & the Wailers’ Exodus: Deluxe Edition, click HERE.

Judy Garland 100th Birthday Gala and Fragrance Reveal via She Grown Media for use by 360 Magazine

JUDY – A Garland Fragrance

To commemorate one of the greatest Hollywood icons, Vince Spinnato held the legendary Judy Garland 100th Birthday Gala and Fragrance Reveal. Known as a perfume developer and cosmetic chemist, Vince held the event to celebrate the upcoming unisex scent: JUDY – A Garland Fragrance.

The aroma was created in honor of Judy’s rich history and legacy. Her children, Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft and Joey Luft, attended the gala to further memorialize their mother’s impact on the industry and world.

A custom-made design was invented for Judy’s bottle that showcases a passionate, dreamy theme. The exclusive 100th birthday collector’s bottle was revealed on the night and even up for grabs. The official release of the fragrance is slated for this autumn.

Throughout the evening, the venue exuded elegance. From the “Get Happy! Exhibit” to the House of Racanelli fashion show, attendees were immersed in chunks of Judy history. Her renowned Oscar was exhibited to further showcase the star that Judy truly was and forever will be.

Judy was not only an icon in the entertainment industry, but, too, as an activist for the queer community. With the celebration being held on June 10, it was perfectly aligned with LA Pride weekend. Additionally, the soiree served as a special commemoration for LGBTQ+ cohorts. Lastly, Garland was born during Pride month; and ironically, she passed on the same day as the Stonewall riots in NYC.

In short, the evening served to pay tribute to the work that Judy has accomplished in her career, but also to defend a broader mission.

M·A·C Cosmetics Partners with The Keith Haring Foundation to Launch First-Ever NFT Collection 

Limited-edition VIVA GLAM x Keith Haring NFTs will mint on National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day to support healthy futures and equal rights for all  

In honor of National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on April 10, M·A·C Cosmetics has created its first-ever NFT collection featuring the work of the late iconic artist and activist, Keith Haring. Available from April 10 to June 1, 2022, 100% of the purchase price from primary sales of the VIVA GLAM x Keith Haring NFT collection will be donated to the M·A·C VIVA GLAM Fund to support youth impacted by HIV/AIDS and through January 15, 2023, 2.5% of the purchase price from all secondary sales on OpenSea will go to The Keith Haring Foundation. 

“VIVA GLAM is as iconic to M·A·C as our lipsticks and as our relationship with technology evolves as a society, we must also expand how we fundraise for the campaign. This will be the first-time in VIVA GLAM’s 27-year history that fans and supporters in the U.S. will be able to contribute to VIVA GLAM without buying a physical lipstick. This is an exciting moment for us and we hope that this limited-edition NFT collection will help us reach a new audience and raise more funding for VIVA GLAM,” said André Branch, M·A·C Cosmetics General Manager, North America.

The Keith Haring Foundation is a natural partner for M·A·C to  enter  into the metaverse: Haring’s inimitable street pop art sprang into the epicentre of New York’s artistic subculture in the 1980s, right when M·A·C launched as the definitive rule-breaking Artistry brand. It’s their shared connection to the fight against HIV/AIDS that forms the most meaningful bond. Haring himself was diagnosed with HIV in 1987 at a time when the disease was still a source of fear and apprehension. Equal part activist and artist, instead of hiding behind his diagnosis, Haring used his art to raise awareness about the AIDS crisis and talk about his own illness, which helped destigmatize AIDS and bring impacted youth together to advocate for change. 

“This is exciting in so many ways. First, it is M·A·C’s first ever dab into the metaverse and the world of NFTs and we are thrilled to anchor it to giving back to a cause so close to the heart and soul of the brand,” said Aïda Moudachirou-Rebois, Global Chief Marketing Officer, M·A·C Cosmetics. “Additionally, we are honored that the Keith Haring Foundation agreed to join forces with us to carry forward Haring’s mission of using art to drive positive change for those most in need of support and are proud that his legacy lives on through VIVA GLAM.”

The limited-edition NFT collection features three animations of M·A·C VIVA GLAM lipsticks decorated with Haring’s most famous artwork. Created in partnership with blockchain technology leader ConsenSys, each NFT is available at three different rarity levels and price points to attract a diverse and inclusive range of metaverse consumers.

  • Keith Haring Red – Rare ($25 each up to 5,000 pieces minted on demand): Animated illustration of red lipstick featuring Haring’s artwork. 
  • Keith Haring Blue – Exclusive (250 total pieces at $150 each): Animated illustration of blue lipstick featuring Haring’s artwork. Rare NFTs also include a digital face chart tutorial of a Keith Haring-inspired makeup look created by a M·A·C Senior Artist.  
  • Keith Haring Yellow – Icon (25 total pieces at $1000 each): Animated illustration of yellow lipstick featuring Haring’s artwork. Legendary NFTs also provide access to a 30-minute personalized M·A·C Artist consultation and complementary physical product. 

“Keith Haring and M·A·C Cosmetics are really a perfect match,” said Gil Vazquez, Director of the Keith Haring Studio. “Both the artist and the brand have long stood for equal rights and self-expression for everybody. We are happy to team up with M·A·C to continue supporting a cause he cared about so deeply.” 

M·A·C VIVA GLAM was created in 1994, at the height of the AIDS epidemic, by Frank Toskan and the late Frank Angelo, the original founders of the brand, who saw the HIV/AIDS epidemic directly affecting their community. They came up with a very simple, yet powerful concept: Make a lipstick and dedicate 100% of the selling price to organizations directly serving people affected by HIV/AIDS. Thanks to this powerful mission and support from the M·A·C community, the campaign has raised over half a billion dollars for organizations all over the world helping women and girls, the LGBTQIA+ community and those affected by HIV/AIDS.

Nipsey Hussle Biography ‘The Marathon Don’t Stop’

Rob Kenner is one of the most prolific and influential voices in hip hop publishing and a founding editor of Vibe magazine. 

After meeting Nipsey Hussle in the offices of Vibe, Kenner spent the next ten years tracking the life and career of the hip hop mogul, artist, and activist. THE MARATHON DON’T STOP: The Life and Times of Nipsey Hussle by Rob Kenner (Atria Books; Hardcover; March 23, 2021; $27.00; ISBN: 9781982140298) ​is the first in-depth biography of Nipsey Hussle, whose transformative legacy inspired a generation with his motivational lyrics and visionary business savvy—before he was tragically shot down on March 31, 2019 in the very neighborhood he was dedicated to building up. August 15th is Nipsey Hussle’s birthday. He would be turning 36 this year.

Combining on-the-ground reporting and candid interviews with Hussle’s friends, family, and peers, THE MARATHON DON’T STOP traces the life and work of an extraordinary artist, placing him in historical context and unpacking his complex legacy.

Some details of Hussle’s life that Kenner can discuss in an interview include:

  • Ermias Asghedom, before he was Nipsey Hussle, was a brilliant, soft-spoken, and underestimated young man who loved hip hop with a passion and was determined to build his own successful music label and clothing business—as well as other businesses that would employ many members of his community.
  • His life in the Crenshaw District starting in 1985, placing Hussle in historical context within the evolution of Hip Hop, Los Angeles, and America.
  • Hussle’s genius as a teenager who built his own computers and went on to push the envelope of technology in growing his businesses as well as innovating new revenue models for independent musicians that have since been adopted by the mainstream music industry
  • Hussle’s life-changing trip to Africa to visit his father’s family in Eritrea, as well as his little-known first meeting with Afeni Shakur, long before he called himself the ‘Tupac of My Generation’ or even took the rap name Nipsey Hussle.
  • Hussle’s impact as an activist, and his efforts to re-align L.A. gang culture with the mission of organizations like the Black Panthers…AND MORE.

Rob Kenner is one of the most prolific and influential voices in hip hop publishing. A founding editor of Vibe, Kenner joined the start-up team of Quincy Jones’ groundbreaking hip hop monthly in 1992. During a nineteen-year run at Vibe he edited and wrote cover and feature stories on iconic cultural figures ranging from Tupac Shakur to Barack Obama as well as writing the acclaimed column Boomshots. Kenner’s writing has appeared in Complex, Genius, Mass Appeal, Pigeons & Planes, Ego Trip, Poetry magazine, The New York Times, and Billboard. He’s also produced and directed documentary shorts on the likes of De La Soul, Nas, and Post Malone. As an editor at Vibe Books, Kenner worked on the New York Times bestseller Tupac Shakur and contributed to The Vibe History of Hip Hop. He went on to co-author VX: 10 Years of Vibe Photography and produced the book Unbelievable, a biography of The Notorious B.I.G. by Cheo Hodari Coker Jr., which was optioned for the motion picture Notorious.
