Cam’ron cancelled!
Killa!

For those heads in search of those elusive Japan-only Dunks in the green-and-purple checked colorway, prick up your ears, this is a show for you.

Sneaker Pimps is the worlds largest touring sneaker hip-hop lifestyle exhibition featuring over 1500 pairs of rare, limited edition, vintage, celebrity signed, artists collaborated sneakers and a collection of sneaker inspired artwork, fashion and photography. The tour also features live street art installations, live skateboarding demonstrations, street basketball competitions and live hip-hop and rock performances by some of the world’s foremost recording artists.

The Sneaker Pimps exhibition will hit eight cities over the next few weeks, the first of which is NYC at Terminal 5 on June 26th. Tickets are on sale .

This has has nothing to do with the trip hop band from the 90s, so why are we reporting on a shoe exhibition? The show will also include a band of hip hop noteables including Big Boi of Outkast (with Sleepy Brown?), Clipse, The Cool Kids, Wale, and the only man cool enough to get away with a pink Range Rover, (Killa!) Cam’ron!

UPDATE: Cam’ron is no longer on the NYC bill, but Ninjasonik, Team Facelift, and “CO HEADLINER TBA” are.

Cam’ron‘s new album, Crime Pays, is out now. Check out a fascinating interview with Killa Cam where he reveals his status with the Dipset, his thoughts on hip hop beef, and much more. Check that out here.

Big Boi‘s looooong awaited solo project Sir Luscious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty, will be released “soon” now that a label dispute with Jive Records has been resolved.

Clipse will be in greater NY this weekend, as the duo has also scheduled an appearance at the EastWest store in Westbury, as well as a show at Club Loaded in Farmingdale. Tickets are still available.

The Cool Kids released their new mixtape, Gone Fishing, a few weeks ago. Get that above. The pair will ALSO be semi-in-the-neighborhood this weekend, as they are slated to appear at the B.O.M.B. Fest in Waterford, CT on June 13th. They are also scheduled to be part of NXNE.

DC’s own Wale is about to hit the road, but recently dropped the video for “Chillin” featuring Lady Gaga… who will be touring with Kanye West soon. Check that out below…
