ClickPicks: The Forgotten Archive of Biggies Final Moments (& More...)

Life After Death

“When hip-hop obsessive Lucas Garrison stumbled across a long forgotten ’90s internet forum full of clips, photos and first-hand testimony from the time, it was like he’d just dug up a time capsule. Davy D’s Hip Hop Corner was an active community for many years, but as its users slowly drifted elsewhere, the site became a digital museum of sorts – a window into the real state of pre-millennial hip-hop. Unsurprisingly, one of the biggest and most talked about topics was the back-to-back killing of Tupac and Notorious BIG, and Garrison’s summary of what he found on the site – featuring testimony from 13-year-old kids right through to Puffy himself – is both fascinating and deeply touching.” – AJ Gwilliam (Features Editor)

The Brotherhood of Jugg

“Perhaps the most frequently derided, ridiculed and – as it turns out – misunderstood musical subculture on Earth right now has to be the Juggalo movement. Painted by everyone from music journalists to the Federal Government as a gang of unruly, disreputable freaks, they have become an easy target for everyday stigma. Yet, as this video from the latest Gathering Of The Juggalos festival shows, what brings these individuals together each year is not the promise of facepaint, fighting and Faygo-fuelled debauchery, but actually love, fellowship and an appreciation of friendship between strangers. Whoop whoop…” – AJ Gwilliam (Features Editor)

Level Playing Field

“Baseball is a sport known for a number of unwritten rules (including not bunting to break-up a no-hitter, retaliation for hit batters, and many more). Yet, one of the stranger traditions in baseball isn’t really a rule at all. While coaches for other major sports opt for suits and ties or team-licensed gear, baseball managers continue to don uniforms just like the players do. The Post Game gets to the bottom of why the tradition remains.” – Alec Banks (Contributing Editor)

The Mad Life of McAfee

“In case you weren’t aware, John McAfee – the man who founded one of the world’s biggest software companies and amassed a fortune of $ 100 million – has had a pretty insane life. Business Insider delves into the story of his life, which goes from early battles with alcoholism and LSD experimentation to building a vast tech empire and then becoming embroiled in a murder investigation in Belize…” – Alec Leach (Fashion Editor)

Air Jordan 1 Retro High Rare Air “Cool Grey”

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High Rare Air comes without the iconic Wings logo of the brand and as such has its very own place in the history of Jordan Brand. Here we take a first look at the cool grey colorway of the sneaker, which will be hitting retailers in the coming weeks. The sneaker comes with a full cool grey leather upper, black Swoosh and sits on a crisp white outer sole. Fabric inlays add a further premium touch. Look out for a release in early August.

Dipset – American Dream (Mixtape)

Jimmy and Zeke appear, as well as peripheral guys like Hell Rell, Sen City and Mel Matrix, but other than that it’s basically a smorgasbord of niggas from Harlem and people loosely affiliated with the Set. Styles P, Lil Wayne, Faith Evans, Dave East, Young Scooter, Rowdy Rebel, Nino Man and the late Chinx all pop up throughout for guest appearances.
