Virgil Abloh Designs Lil Uzi Vert's "Luv Is Rage 2" Album Artwork
Lil Uzi Vert's highly anticipated album "Luv Is Rage 2," released this past week in spectacular fashion (literally). Uzi's album artwork was designed by Off-White creative director, Virgil Abloh. The artwork features "TAPE," and other Off-White branding throughout the cover. Not only does the artwork feature Off-White branding, it also features Uzi wearing an Undercover backpack in the shape of a bat (from current season). Uzi's "Luv Is Rage 2," features a lot of fashion references throughout the album as well. Overall I rate the project a 7/10, while the album artwork is a 10/10-well done.
424's First A/W 17' Drop Happens Today
424 begins its F/W 17' season today with its first drop of the season. The drop includes painted Denim jackets in an assortment of colors, as well as other 424 branded merch such as track pants & hoodies. 424 has grown it's personal brand very well over the past seasons, and I am looking forward to more drops throughout the Fall season.
Mayweather remains Undefeated
Floyd "Money" Mayweather squared off against Conor McGregor this past Sunday in one of the most historic fights in boxing history. As expected, Mayweather remained undefeated to move to an unprecedented 50-0. However McGregor really held his own against "The Best Ever," making the fight last 10 entertaining rounds. I think the only thing more entertaining than the fight itself was Floyd Mayweather's bedazzled Phillip Plien x Hublot boxing robe & shorts.
Supreme's 2nd drop of F/W 17'
Another Thursday passed, and that means more Supreme flooding Grailed's "Hype" feed as resellers do what they do best. Above are some of the items that released this past week. Stay up on every Supreme drop by following @Supreme_leak_news. Stay tuned for next week's drop.

They took to Instagram the past few days to flex what items will be available once they finally open their doors. Round Two will rival Flight Club & Stadium goods as the premiere place to cop sneakers, Supreme, and other rare items alike.
