Atmos and Reebok have teamed up again on the Insta Pump Fury. This time they subdued it a little. Royal blue mesh with a grey bladder and orange hits, these are perfect for those Denver Bronco fans, who prefer the Royal/Orange colors of old. They are equally perfect for those of us who just like dope shoes. I actually ID’d my own pair of Insta Pumps yesterday, you can check them out at the bottom of the page if you care. I dig em…If you like the Atmos version you can preorder it here atmos online shop.

UK producer Imperial and Sareem Poems (LA Symphony) are gearing up to release an EP together in 2014, which will be released on Illect Recordings. The first nugget from that gold mine is an ode their newly born seeds. Originally released back in March, the Sonny Rollin’s inspired instrumental was dropped by Imperial to celebrate the birth of his son. It only made since that once they decided to work together the track would get a reboot. Sareem also celebrated the birth of his first child in the past year also. A picture he eloquently paints with the verse, “I want to be the earthly father I didn’t believe in.”
