last sunday K1X invited all ballers and shortys from the german capitol to shop for some early k1x-mas presents.

jordan always knew: you don’t have to be a great dancer to play ball (see jacko’s “jam” video). but special & el prove that you can also be a great dancer and (!) a great ballplayer. well, maybe not as great as the greatest, but close.
the first time many of us were educated about aids, was when magic johnson, one of our all-time favorites, announced he was infected by hiv. a lot has happened since # 32 held that memorable press conference on cnn back in november 1991. magic for one, won gold, built an enterprise and educated the world [...]

“together we chill” tournament on 119th street has been kicking up a lot of dust this summer – thanks to the hustle of commissioners dj Tedsmooth, g-bush and big tato. currently considered one of the hottest spots in the city, it’s no wonder new york’s top dogs are turning up in bunches. yesterday’s talent featured [...]
yes, it rained. yes, stage-time was very late on the very last day and yes, it was not the main-stage. but what happened that night should be a lesson to every concert-/tour-promoter and –presenter out there: olli banjo moves the crowd like no other. everybody who was there knows what we’re talking about. thank you [...]
