Check out New York brand DQM’s fresh take on lookbooks. The pics are exactly what they look like: the DQM staff and their friends engaging in their everyday activities. The shots were taken by NYC street photographer Suekwon.

Some of these shots were taken RIGHT in SampleSaleShop.com‘s backyard. Seriously. Can you recognize any of these spots (cough, the Manhattan Bridge, cough) in the LES / Chinatown / Brooklyn?

And, speaking of lookbooks, have you entered our street style contest yet? You can enter as many times as you want, so get goin’.

Converse Band of Ballers 2010 in ATL

Converse-Band-of-Ballers-2010-ATL

It’s on!!! Converse’s Band of Ballers is back for a second year. The 3-on-3 basketball tournament is going down this Saturday at a private location in Atlanta, Georgia.  Similar to MTV’s Rock N’ Jock (remember that?), musicians and their entourages will be shooting to dethrone last year’s winners, Jim Jones and The Jones Family.

Let the trash talkin’ begin!

Check out Jim Jones, and God Shammgod, reminding everyone that he’s the reigning champ from Harlem, and that NYC is the greatest (can’t fight him on that).

Team Bad News: Sean Price, Jay Electronica, and DJ TJ the King, reppin’ Brownsville (Brooklyn!), New Orleans, and Detroit and the West Side. Donnis is on their team, but is the magic on their side?

Hometown heroes, Team Southern Hospitality (Shawty Lo, OJ Da Juiceman, and Pill), all rep Atlanta. Will they have the home court advantage?

Who will win?

Where are YOU reppin’? Tell us in our contest.
