Though the Migos might be done for good, Quavo and Takeoff’s latest effort together certainly doesn’t disappoint. Only Built For Infinity Links dropped earlier this month and fans have praised Quavo and Take’s delivery and chemistry on the project, even as they made headlines. “Messy,” specifically, became a talking point after Quavo seemingly references his split from Saweetie and rumors that she may have had an affair with someone within his camp.
Today, they delivered the official music video for the show, which briefly showcases Quavo and Takeoff’s acting chops. The two wake up in a car where Quavo revealed that he had a bad dream. From there, the two embark on a journey through a haunted house, which is only fitting for a Halloween release. The two encounter chaotic and spooky scenarios throughout the video.

Even as we’re jumping from one generation of Hip Hop influencers to the next, the impact of Tupac Shakur is unshaken. Often, Hip Hop is saturated with Top lists where artists name their favorite emcees of all time, and although Pac was taken from the world back in 1996, his music and activism continue to permeate pop culture and politics.
Jeezy is the latest Rap icon to reflect on not only being a fan of Shakur’s, but a student. During his interview with Drink Champs, the Atlanta-bred star explained how Pac’s catalog helped shape him in his youth.
“Every morning before school, I listened to all Master P, 8Ball, MJG, but my favorite was Tupac,” said Jeezy. “It still is to this day because he stood for something. He had values, he had morals, he had integrity, but I had never seen that before. ‘Cause my uncles would steal $20 out ya socks.”
Jeezy went on to say that he wasn’t able to learn those life lessons from the men who were supposed to teach him the way. “I couldn’t get any information out of them,” he said. “So, how I learned how to survive and navigate through the streets—and I want to say that because, these guys that’s coming up, 90 percent of it, well, 10 percent of it is music, 90 percent of it surviving. It’s survival, and navigating what’s going on.”
“I think there’s a way to pay these people it just takes being revolutionary and to do something out of the ordinary.” -Tupac on income inequality, 1992 pic.twitter.com/hrGAvUYrZs

“I listened to Tupac as if that was my Bible. How to move, how to handle situations, and it was embedded in me. He was a revolutionary before I knew what that was. He actually had—he stood for something. And he would take those risks when everybody around me was so used to how they was livin’ that they didn’t want to try to live any better.”
“My Bible, at that time, no disrespect to the big homie [Biggie], was every Tupac album.”
Jeezy said he listened to Tupac every morning on his way to school, but he had to help his family, so he dropped out in the sixth grade. “But, I did that knowing that Tupac did what he had to do.”

After confirming via the Knuckleheads podcast last December that he would soon be receiving his first signature sneaker from Jordan Brand, Jayson Tatum revealed recently in his interview with Graham Bensinger that the Jordan Tatum 1 is set to debut in March.
Having signed with The Swoosh to start his career, Tatum made the neighboring move to Jumpman back in 2019 and has since proffered some of the lines most captivating storytelling on the hardwood in recent memory. From his “Taco Jay” monicker to his off-court passions such as Ford Mustangs and reading to his son at night, Tatum’s boastful collection of PE’s is more than enough evidence that his first sneaker will be chock full of personal expressions.
While he’s remained the lone spokesperson for the silhouette as the Beaverton-based brand works behind the scenes putting on the finishing touches, the three-time All-Star and his Celtics have jumped out to an early 4-2 start to the season. Flashes of the roster returning to the promise land to finish what was started last year linger while Tatum dices up defenses on a nightly basis in a myriad of Jordan 36’s, giddy in anticipation to debut the model that currently sits in his home next spring.

The Nike Dunk Mid has been virtually absent from the Swoosh’s lineup of products for the majority of the past few years, but the silhouette seems poised to demand some attention in 2023.
Recently, the mid-top proposition emerged in a multi-colored arrangement perfect for next spring. Muted “Pale Ivory” covers the sneaker’s base canvas layer, setting the stage for the “Mineral Teal,” “Moss,” “Alpha Orange” and “Team Gold” flair that appears throughout the upper. Underfoot, the canvas-covered Nike Dunk features a semi-recycled sole unit, contributing to the Swoosh’s “Move to Zero” initiative.
No firm Nike.com release details have been disclosed by the brand, but that’s likely to change in the near future. In the meantime, enjoy official images of the pair ahead, which is priced at $115 USD.
