With a new year comes changes and new ideas. M&N Eminent is a fairly new website so naturally we are keeping things fresh but we are all about daily improvement. One of these new improvements will be a weekly and possibly even daily segment on the website titled “Random Homage” or “R.H. list”. This will consist of just a few things that either Matt or myself came across recently that we enjoyed and thought we’d share with you all. The content will range from old music to new sneakers so be prepared for anything. Consider it to be a sort of favorites list. You can also email us your R.H. list and we will gladly post it along with your name and a photo. We actually INSIST that you do send us stuff because we are driven by your love and energy so keep it comin’ ya’ll!!
Today’s Random Homage:
1.Vans Spring 2009 “Letterman” Half Cab: You all know how I looooveee Varsity jackets and sneakers. Finally Vans has mixed the two together to create these dope Half Cabs. Click the link I provided to check out the detail on these babies and look out for their release.
2.The Minority Report: As a Brooklyn boy, I’m somewhat out of my element down in D.C. So naturally, I look for things that keep me informed on what’s going on back in the home of Biggie and Jay. The Minority Report surely keeps me abreast of mine at all times. I know what parties are going down, what vintage shops to go to and where to have Sunday brunch before I hop back on the bus to D.C. Make sure you check it out. Al wassup man!!?? Where’s my shoutout!?
3.HTC Touch Pro (Sprint!!): I’m not much of a gadget freak but certain electronic gizmos just grab me and I do enjoy a good phone. This phone is looking pretty smooth especially since I’ve been looking to upgrade. Hmm maybe I can post on the website from this phone. I’ll go test it out and let ya’ll know.
4.Can’t Tell Me Nothing Remix Kanye ft. Weezy, Busta, and Jeezy: “Yea homie this the theme song. First I get my money right, then i get team on. If I always prayed to have gleam on, $300 jeans on..Do that mean I dream wrong?” Story of my life.
5.Selima X J.Crew Sunglasses: I’ve been looking for a smooth pair of shades and I think I may have found em. May actually break my rule and wear these joints in the club and at night!!

With the recent release of his newest and most controversial album “808’s and Heartbreak”, you can believe that people have been dying to pick the brain of Kanye West. He lost his mother earlier this year due to complications during cosmetic surgery and he was having relationship problems as well. Through all the adversity and turmoil, Mr. West has still managed to emerge “from the ashes like a phoenix”. 808’s has been the talk of the town since the debut of “Love Lock Down” at this years VMA’s, and has continued to be just that. But like I said when it dropped; it’s a love/hate album so a lot of Kanye “fans” haven’t embraced it. People think the man has lost his mind but I think he’s still finding himself. The Fader Magazine recently caught up with the man behind the shutter shades to get some insight straight from the source. Check out the interview here and let me know what you think. ‘Ye is a funny dude and I loved the album and the interview. The day approaches where Kanye links up with M&N so stay (auto)tuned!! Happy Holidays ya’ll!!
