This season’s retake on the CONS Weapon is a slightly lighter-weight version of its predecessors, thanks to its slim midsole. Featuring a black and white upper (or a whole lineup of color choices) for $85. Comfy fit is supported by memory foam Y-bar, plush sock liner and excellent breathability. Dual embossed Converse branding on the tongue plus chevron side cutouts comprise the finishing touches. Choose your weapon wisely.


Kid Sister — born Melissa Young and big sis to Josh, one-half of DJ duo Flosstradamus — finally has some new music to for the world. Her Dusk 2 Dawn: The Diary of Jane Jupiter mixtape not only claims to push the envelope of the artist’s boundaries in terms of style, but actually serves as an introduction to a new identity under the alias “Jane Jupiter.” There’s some good tracks in there, some of Kid Sister’s best stuff in years — although the poppier tracks fall a little short in our humble opinion. Listen to The Diary of Jane Jupiter mixtape below as Melissa Young does another character about-face a little on the R&B tip.

Nothing adds yum to your rum like a pile of cigarette butts, or at least that’s what the guys at New Zealand’s Stolen Rum have figured out. Tobacco and coffee being flavoring agents to their Coffee & Cigarettes spiced rum — inspired by famed indie director Jim Jarmusch’s film of the same name — the spirit is newly available to the U.S after a successful run in the Kiwi-Aussie area for a few years now. Coffee & Cigarettes spiced rum will swoon you with the smoothest touches of a cappuccino ashtray to ever bless your Mai Tai. Available wherever Stolen Rum products are sold, which is presently only a handful of places in Southern California and Florida. But if you ever hit the other hemisphere, you can find other rums like Stolen Gold, Dark or White, as well as a totally different set of constellations in the sky.


As you man have noticed, Raekwon has been doing a series of Throwback Thursday goodies as of late. You also may have noticed that today isn’t Thursday anymore.

Take a listen, and check back for more next Thursday-ish.

Peep the video accompaniment to the upcoming You’re Dead LP after the Jump, but be warned that it might just melt your face off, in a psychotropic, who-ate-all-the-mushrooms sort of way.

Keep your jeans looking new & fresh longer

Mr. Black wants your clothes to last forever. Now you can beat your way around the Maytag machine by refreshing denim between washes, and then washing with the right stuff. Everyone knows you’re not supposed to wash high quality denim often, and raw denim ever, so that’s where Mr. Black hopes to come in. The Denim Wash is a plant-derived means to cleaning while keeping color intensity for $28. And Denim Refresh between washes also helps to prevent stains. Also about $28, unless you’re doing genius travel size.
