New joint and lead single off of Miami Beat Wave’s The Launch compilation with some wise words from Ghost:
“This song is dedicated to the fight for peace in the communities strongly affected by gang violence, racism, school shootings, etc. It is my hopes that myself [GhostWridah] along with Smitty of Interscope Records and Miami Beat Wave (Producer’s of the song) can play (at least) a small role in creating awareness of this ongoing problem. I created records like dying to survive, and my brother to not fall out out line with music that promotes murder, and negativity to show that good music can be made without compromising our communities and youth.
They follow us [hip-hop artist] and look up to us. We have a responsibility to the youth of tomorrow and we have thee absolute largest outlet in America, music. I, by no means am innocent in this matter. Before growing into the person God allowed me to be, which is myself I once made music that provided negative images of my culture because I felt that was the necessary criteria for a rap artist. Now I understand fully and here is the proof. Ladies and gentlemen, My brother.” – GhostWridah

Supra just dropped this latest colorway in their Skytop II sneaker. The shoe includes a metallic leather upper, patent highlights in black and a big tongue marked by cut-outs. Good luck trying to find this at any of your local sneaker retailers. Word on the street is that it’s sold out everywhere. I guess there’s always eBay.
