Ladies, you can come for Joe if you want, but if he did not send for you then you may want to keep it moving and find another brotha to get with. That’s because he only has eyes for Kelly Rowland who also has his heart in the video treatment of “Love & Sex Part 2.” Their duet about the difference between the emotion and the action is an updated version of the song “Love & Sex,” which was originally heard on Joe’s album Doubleback: Evolution of R&B withFantasia as his partner. Well, Tasia got traded in and so did the throwback sound of the song, with Rowland and a more modern track brought in. Both versions are decent, but “Love & Sex Part 2” has the edge thanks to the contemporary feel and Kelly and Joe complement each other nicely on wax and on screen. Their scenes together in the Billie Woodruff-directed video are few and far between, but they end up together in the end.
The Converse shoe silhouettes that some of you have enjoyed during the 90’s era are making a huge comeback this year. Converse has recently unveiled their CONS Spring 2014 collection featuring all new updates made on our favorite CONS sneaker silhouettes.
The Converse Aero Jam comes back this year with three more colorway options, including charcoal, red, and white. The iteration features a removable and reversible lace and an oversized tongue. The new offering also includes different versions of the Star Player sneakers. The CONS Star Player comes designed with a Lunarlon sockliner and an updated open collar.
Meanwhile, the Star Player Skate comes in two versions—low-top and mid-top sneakers—and features the CONS traction rubber, Lunarlon sockliner, gusseted tongue, and perforated memory foam. In addition, the CONS Star Player Plus is dressed in a concoction of nubuck and canvas upper and bedecked with the Star Chevron logo, padded collar, and vibrant stitching details. The Converse CONS Spring 2014 Collection will drop on Valentine’s Day, February 14th.
COMME des GARÇONS is adding a bit of a childhood punch to their line of apparel pieces with their recent collaborative project with Disney. The COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT x Disney Spring/Summer 2014 “Camo” Capsule Collection is full of the Disney magic, Mickey Mouse, and the rather rebellious camo print. For this new offering, COMME des GARÇONS has taken the project up a notch by infusing Disney with camo-print patterns on their garments.
The new collection features a regular T-shirt, and poplin long-sleeved dress shirt, and a panel graphic shirt that are adorned with the Disney camo print. We do not know about you, but we at SoJones are definitely digging the Disney camo combo on the COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT x Disney Spring/Summer 2014 “Camo” Capsule Collection. The pieces are currently available via End.
As part of their expansion, ICECREAM Europe and Billionaire Boys Club have recently announced that they will be opening their London Satellite Store this week on February 19th. The location of the said satellite store is still undisclosed, but updates on the upcoming event will be released within the week as well. In line with this announcement, the two streetwear brands will also release T-shirts that will be sold exclusively at the new store. Here is a look at the three graphic shirts that will be housed at the satellite store, aside from the other exclusive items from both labels.
If you are looking to add a new camouflage sneaker to your collection this season, you can track down the Camouflage Francy High Top Sneaker from Golden Goose.
This new rendition of camo-inspired kicks features a camo canvas upper with a distressed look. If you are the type of sneakerhead who likes wearing worn-in shoes, this sneaker is definitely for you.
The canvas upper and white rubber midsole are given the destroyed finish channeling the hobo look. Broken laces, silver metallic eyelets, and zip detailing round up the look of this sneaker.
There is a certain kind of nostalgia that surrounds baseball jackets. Personally, it reminds me of childhood days in the 90’s and of the long hours spent running and catching balls on the field. The Givenchy Leather-Embroidered Star baseball jacket brings such nostalgia. The French fashion brand crafted an Italian made jacket with the help of their Creative Director Riccardo Tisci. Constructed in rich, premium leather with suede stars surrounding the collar, this €2,000 outerwear from the luxury fashion brand is not something that you should wear while you are hitting the inside pitch.
It is not unusual for music artists to go beyond their way to provide help to people who are in dire need of assistance. We have seen celebrities, popstars, bands, and even rappers donate cash or organize a fundraiser for several charities. However, what music superstar and philanthropist Akon is doing is more than just a simple fundraising event. He is trying to provide electricity to about a million household in Africa before 2015.
Akon, through Akon Corp., has teamed up with a group of strategic partners in an effort to provide cost-effective and scalable energy solutions in Africa. The initiative called “Akon Lighting Africa” is in partnership with Solektra International, a member of the African Development Solutions Group, together with the GIVE1 PROJECT, and it aims to address the need for electricity in the African region.
Currently, it is estimated that 85 percent of Africans living in rural areas do not have an access to electricity. In addition, more than two-thirds of the population in sub-Sahara Africa is living in conditions without electrical power supply. The initiative aims to support the provision and installation of solar equipment in African households to increase energy sufficiency.
Founder and President of GIVE1 PROJECT, Thione Niang, said, “This initiative gives a unique opportunity to bring partners across the spectrum to address the most important needs to Africa’s development.
Meetings with a select group of heads of state in African countries were arranged to discuss the possibility of a public-private partnership to resolve the energy issue in Africa. In line with this initiative, Akon has also met with different leaders of African countries such as President Macky Sall of Senegal, Prime Minister Aminata Tourè of Senegal, President Alpha Condè of Republic de Guinea, President Blaise Compaoré of Burkina Faso, President Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone, and President Ali Bongo Ondimba of Gabon.

@rickyrozay is at it again. Steady on the grind and continuing to drop new material, the Teflon Don drops a visual for his “Bound 2″ freestyle. The Yeezus tracks gets a chill spin with no motorcycles or topless Kardashian…damn. The visual is a simple concept of the MMG bawse just chilling at a local carnival, smoking a cigar, and sipping from a styrofoam cup as he professes his love for Khloe Kardashian.
Fresh off announcing his upcoming tour dates, @PUSHA_T drops the visual for his next single “Suicide”. The trippy Nathan Brown directed clip finds the VA rapper spitting in the dark while some special effect waves accentuate his lips and body. Not a video for those who are prone to seizures, the My Name is My Name video gets a cameo from Ab-Liva as his silhouette raps over a red background. Take a look at the artsy clip and be sure to be on the lookout for Pusha’s upcoming tour.
