While Kim Kardashian is certainly a lot richer now after she sold a stake in her KKW Beauty brand, she’s still not quite a billionaire, as Forbes points out. Earlier this week, Kanye West celebrated his wife’s supposed accomplishment by taking to Twitter to congratulate her on this milestone. “I am so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire,” he wrote. “You’ve weathered the craziest storms and now God is shining on you and our family. So blessed this is still life. So I made you this still life. We love you so much.”
Over the past few months, numerous high-profile college basketball recruits have been making a conscious effort to consider HBCUs along the recruiting process. For those who don’t know, an HBCU is a historically black college or university. These schools have notoriously received less funding from the government, and therefore don’t always have the facilities to land big recruits. However, many recruits have changed their philosophies and want to give HBCUs a fair chance so they can get the funding they so deserve.
The Jordan Why Not Zer0.3 SE “Primary Colors” is another new colorway of Russell Westbrook’s signature sneaker, and it’s debuting in September. Boasting white as its main canvas theme, the “Primary Colors” aesthetic is directed at the mesh uppers which bear bold tones including red, yellow, blue, orange, and green. Each color represents a team that Westbrook has played for, while the blueprint-like detail on the uppers draws from the red lining made by footwear designers during the pattern trial process.
The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 “Royal” is an upcoming colorway of the autolacing basketball silhouette and it’s slated to debut very soon. Draped in light and dark shades of blue across its mesh and leather uppers, the eye-catching profile is further detailed with white medial Swoosh and more light blue bubble-like speckling on the heel. Finally, more of the speckled detailing flows across the midsole and translucent outsole, which also bears a water-like graphic.
Retailing for $400, look for the Nike Adapt BB 2.0 “Royal” at select Nike stockists and online later this summer. Stay tuned for the official release date. Always keep it locked to KicksOnFire for the latest in sneaker news, release dates and where to purchase your favorite kicks.
Pop Smoke’s posthumous album has been a long-awaited venture, and now that it’s finally here, fans can’t help but feel sad that he’s not around anymore. Many felt that Pop Smoke was up next as his budding career was undoubtedly about to take off before he was tragically shot and killed in February. Since then, fans have been itching to hear what he’d been working on prior to his death, and now, the day has finally come. Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon experienced multiple delays, but fans need not wait any longer.
The release of posthumous music is always bittersweet — while it does provide a return visit from the ones we’ve lost, it also stands as a tough reminder that we’ll never get to see these songs performed live. And in the case of Pop Smoke, whose legacy was expanded with last night’s release of Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon, it’s hard not to dwell on the lost potential. While it’s all but destined that the 50 Cent and Roddy Ricch-assisted “The Woo” is destined for charting success, Pop Smoke won’t be able to take well-deserved pride in the accomplishment.
