Dubai based Sarah Al Shaybani is truly one of my favourite local artists in Arabia!  Sarah has always had an authentic and humble vibe. She is about to release her first EP entitled 'Alter Ego' - I personally am looking forward to hear it. Sarah will be teaming up with Rayan who has produced all the tracks on the EP!

Dj J Hart x Top Shelf Premium -- Off Top Vol.1 Hosted by Peter Rosenberg

About 3 months ago, I had the honor to meet Dj J Hart who is also a producer and the host of the Big Bang Show. We actually connected via a close friend and talented friend of mine, Dj Lethal Skillz, who for me is one of the best turn-tablists in the Middle-East and simply a dope personality. 

I met Hart at the Lisa Leone photo exhibition in Dubai and we exchanged few words and promised each other to stay in touch and we DID. I checked out his resume and the EP's/Mixtapes he dropped and I connected with the vibe/authenticity of what he is pushing. 

Couple of weeks ago, Dj J Hart collaborated with Top Shelf Premium to release this incredible Mixtape 'Off Top Vol. i' , hosted by not other than radio personality Peter Rosenberg!

This whole mixtape has a really cool feel/vibe to it, i will be posting it below; I just want to highlight few tracks that I personally loved.. I was impressed with Rim's freestyle and his shout out to Sean P ! , another track I loved is 'Skyzoo' - incredible flow!, Chris Rivers did his thing & the fam Termanology was off the hook as usual!

Much respect to Dj J Hart and Top Shelf Premium for giving us this dope Mixtape. I advise you to download/hear it/stream it RIGHT NOW

Jordan store opens in Dubai | #DXB23

Salam my people!
I remember the first time I bought a pair of Air Jordan's. I don't want to sound too old, but it was back in the 90's! The pair that I bought was the Air Jordan XII (1997). Basketball is a big part of who I am. Back then, owning one of these simply made you 'cool' and I think it still does and I have just the story to prove it.
See, I wasn't really that 'cool' back then. There was this popular kid in my school, a few years older than me, who noticed my Air Jordan's and my shoes sparked a long discussion about Basketball and Life! 

Fast-forward to 2016, I am still fascinated by the Jordan brand. I received an invitation from Nike to visit their Jordan store, newly opened in Dubai Mall (Dubai, UAE) on 30th June '16. Going through the store, it was nice to be greeted by a young and friendly staff. I walked straight to the shoe section and I was bedazzled by the beauty of the Air Jordan XII!
We meet again...
 'my precious'!
The store has a good layout, and I truly recommend you visiting it!

It definitely brought back memories of that pair I owned (yes its gone now!)

My only request from the Jordan brand and Nike is to try and extend the sizes in order to cater to all basketball players. I am 6'1 with broad shoulders and my shoe size is 48.5 European (14.5 US) and unfortunately they don't have this size in the market. Nevertheless, it was a great experience and hopefully my next visit will be to invest in a new pair! or maybe #DXB23 can hook a brother up! ;)
