The Roots at North Coast (GWHH Photos)

Not only did we get treated to an incredible show from D’Angelo this weekend at North Coast, we also got vintage Roots.

The Roots also performed Saturday night and Cam Be was there to capture the legendary crew with a gallery of epic closeups above. (Please credit @camovement x @gowherehiphop)

And since today’s a relaxing Labor Day, it feels like an undun day…

Curry Two: Father To Son

Steph Curry is closing up his 5-city tour of Asia with Under Armour — revealing a couple new colorways of the Curry Two, in addition to the “Iron Sharpens Iron” colorway from last week. The latter is out in China and will be available in the U.S. on October 24th… along with, apparently, the Father To Son colorway as well!

Like the Curry Ones that dropped on Father’s Day, this one is inspired by father Dell Curry and his stint with the Charlotte Hornets. Since the purple and teal of the Hornets mesh so well together, this colorway is pretty cold as you can see in the gallery above.

More photos and some fun highlight clips from the #UARoadShow below. (A fun follow on Snapchat too, FWIW: @TeamUA)

D’Angelo @ North Coast (GWHH Photos)

Last night, D’Angelo closed down North Coast to rave reviews. “Amazing show,” our photographer Cam Be simply said. Here’s his full review:

I’ve been to a lot of concerts. Most good, some amazing, while a few others have been major disappointments. So when I do stumble upon one of those amazing ones I try not to take it for granted.

D’Angelo and the Vanguard at North Coast Music Festival 2015 was one of those concerts.

Playing the majority material of his latest release ‘The Black Messiah’ D’Angelo was at the top of his game. I felt the spirit of James Brown, Prince, Sly Stone, Marvin Gaye, and Jimi Hendrix. For a man who had been relatively quiet the last 15 years, D’Angelo seemed to be enjoying every minute on stage. His set filled with wardrobe changes, funky breakdowns, and virtuoso solos left us all saying thank you.

Moments like this remind of everything I love about attending concerts. More than just an hour of sight and sound. We got to witness a true showman pouring out his soul on stage. These moments we can’t take for granted.

KimYe, Weeknd, A$AP, more for Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang brought in the big stars for the 10th anniversary commemorating his collabs with DoSomething.org. I dig the positive vibes here as DoSomething supports the youth (listen to the kids, bro!) and social change.

In addition to the names in the headline, also peep Pusha, Jhene, HAIM, and Lykke Li above representing music. You’ll see some familiar celebs and even more in the official reveal here.

Nike x adidas imagined

Too good to be true.

Did this hybrid Yeezy catch your eye like it did mine?

The well-done collab is 1 of 4 fresh looks imagined by graphic artist Dead Dilly who successfully merged not only the Yeezy II and the Yeezy Boost but also various Nike and adidas technologies and signatures (Flyknit, Ultra Boost, Roshe One, Rick Owens for ex.) above. Hopefully these could somehow happen (or at least go over better than the McWhopper did this week.)

Even though these are just imagined, so are the actual Yeezy Boosts amirite?! Haha, still need to come up on a pair, help out your boy!
