Rumors of New York City rap's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Don't let people like Trinidad James fool you -- there are a plethora of dope acts emerging from the five boroughs and the music scene there couldn't be more exciting or diverse.
Though we’re still Red October-less, 2013 has been a pretty eventful year in the sneaker world. From the Ronnie Fieg X Asics, released in June, to the Reebok Kamikaze II — also released this past summer — there’s been a bevy of different styles, looks and choices that appeal to the hardcore sneaker lover and the person who’s just getting into the sneaker game.
Ever since artists like Too Short and N.W.A burst on to the scene in the late 1980s, the West Coast has been recognized as a hotbed for incredible and diverse hip-hop talent. Whether it was the gangsta music of artists like MC Eiht, Snoop Dogg and Above the Law or the decidedly non-gangsta rap stylings of groups like the Pharcyde and Tha Alkaholiks, there's been a plethora of dope MCs throughout the Golden State.
When you think of a volcano you think of lava: a colorful explosion of molten rock that bears all kinds of oranges, and reds. That's probably why New York sneaker designer Ronnie Fieg chose this colorway for the new Gel Lyte V 'Volcano.'
