This long weekend will probably have been the most tiring of my life to date. It will have started in east at the Reset IIII 1948 on Friday, where I headed after work to see what crack the UK Streetwear brands had managed to cook up since the last one back in April, was it April? It might have been May, anyway forgive the confusion I am quite tired and confused.
I was at the Nike Reset IIII from Friday to saturday, obviously I went home but you get my drift, I was present on both days.Friday was the busier of the two plus it didn't rain and considering the past couple of days that's a massive bonus, however on Saturday it did chuck it down, nonetheless here's couple pics from Friday - Saturdays activities.

Nike 1Love rounds off the 5 boroughs tour with a visit to Queens. Courtesy of Nigel Sylvester and his boys over at FORMAT, a bmx and lifestyle shop. Also stopping by in Staten Island to see whats good with Emilio Sparks.
And now Hip Hop DJ Emilio Sparks run through why Staten Island is on the map.
This beat is dope and 9th didn't even produce it, he's on the hook though as his alias 9thMatic.
The spitters on this track are all part of his latest venture "It's a Wonderful World Music Group." His label that he has put together to forward his love of the hip hop that isn't largely subscribed to and played on the radio.
I'm feeling the female spitter Rhapsody (not like that guys) she's got bars she doesn't go as hard as I've heard her on a few other 9thWonder productions. You should check out her group Kooley High if your into that Little Brother and Pac Div kind of rap.
