Gifted Films Inc presents a Okayplayer OG Brian ‘B.Kyle’ Atkins project, J. Dilla: Still Shining. The comprehensive remembrance piece on the late great James ‘J. Dilla’ Yancey will be available February 7th @

The doc will feature unseen personal photos, and rare concert performance footage. Along with all of that, the project also will feature exclusive testimonials from friends and frequent collaborators like Erykah Badu, Dwele, Pete Rock, Bilal, ?uestlove, Busta Rhymes, Phat Kat, Common, Q-Tip, Houseshoes, and more.

We had previously posted a look into the future with Freshjive’s Fall/Winter line, but we neglected to show you something that would hit Reserve sooner; the Freshjive spring ’11 line. We get a look at their more reformed spring offerings as we see some striped button-downs, hoodys, nautical tank tops, chinos, shorts, fleece and a solid collection of graphic T-shirts. Straying away from the streetwear aspect of their clothing, but staying true to its California roots, these pieces are now up for purchase at Reserve where you can get a better look at each individual piece.

Most will agree that the Air Max line is Nike’s most beloved line-up of running sneakers that most use for casual wear and favorited by sneaker heads alike. But the AM ’95 is held as a classic above all other AM’s since its original release date. It seems as if no one can get tired of the three color gradient sneaker.

The latest colorway to land at retailers sees a black, Dark Shadow and Medium Grey upper contrasted by a purple Max Air unit and lace loops. A pale yellow is also used as a highlight color, furthering breathing life in to this dark sneaker.

These are now available for a price of $145.

Pledging allegiance to dopeness is always a fine gesture when you are musician. Incorporating this act in their mantra, Kidz In The Hall have launched a new series entitled “Brain Candy”. Presumably the name was inspired by Canadian comedy collective The Kids in the Hall’s 1996 same titled film. Naledge and Double-O served “So Amzin” as a first taste earlier this week and offer now their collaboration with Curren$y and Mikkey Halsted. Check out the visuals above and audio piece below.
