Music/Fashion: Busy P is a sneakerhead too.

Busy P, the Influential head honcho of Ed Banger Records and (ex manager for Daft Punk) was recently rewarded by Nike with a limited edition Air Force One. The Sneakers are to be available only at Colette and they'll retail for about €200 euro. Designed in collaboration with the Ed Banger's art director soME, the shoe is a playful battle of words between Busy P and SoMe about the design of the shoe. Part of the "influencer pack" it is unlikely we'll see the shoe in America although who knows, it might just come out on selected tier zero accounts.

As a way to promote the shoe release, french blog La MJC did a photo shoot reminiscent of the famous Andy Warhol vs. Jean-Michel Basquiat photos by Michael Halsband. Pairing Busy P to Senegalese-French Rapper Elie “Booba” Yaffa the campaign focuses on the influences the two have brought have had in their city of Paris. In any case....Nike blah blah blah. The real reason for this post was to give you guys this ridiculous remix by Crookers of Busy P's "to protect and entertain".
