Once in a while, a film, an album, or an artist comes along and by pointing out the idiosyncrasies of everyday life, creates something that we are all forced to recognize from that point forward. In this tradition we present the first, one and only Progressive Street brand, MIGHTY HEALTHY.
Through the vehicle of Progressive Street, MIGHTY HEALTHY explores both the tragedy and comedy of daily life in the metropolis. With a diverse audience and witty eye, MH engages the customer through hidden meaning, coded language and raw-New York sarcasm. All filtered through the prism of Classic All-American ideals.
MIGHTY HEALTHY is a fresh, modern incarnation of a classic young men’s apparel brand. Good, bad and unapologetic, it embraces the tried and true spirit of Progressive Street. Taking a modern, optimistic approach to basic fabrics and silhouettes, MIGHTY HEALTHY t-shirts, jeans, sweatshirts and jackets are outstanding pieces for everyday wear. In an age of “look-alikes” and music-video-inspired uniforms, today’s young man seeks distinction. MIGHTY HEALTHY is the answer.
Jordan Brand gives grade school wearers a gift with this pair of Air Jordan 11 Low GS. We haven’t seen this version of the sneaker release since about 2001. The base of the sneaker’s upper is infused with pink snakeskin, while white is applied to the top of the upper, as well as the midsole. Completing the look is an icy blue, translucent outsole. There’s still no word yet as to a release date, but stay tuned in for more information.

ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron is slated to be the next release from Top Dawg Entertainment’s camp.
“It’ll probably be out in a few months,” said Q to MTV News. “We gon’ get these singles right, get ‘em together and place everything in order. Then we gon’ get it crackin’ from there. I haven’t leaked a record yet, so I don’t wanna say too much yet until I leak the record. But Oxymoron is definitely coming this year and we gon’ have some fun.”
ScHoolboy Q explained that he essentially played it close to the vest in terms of collaborations. “I worked with Pharrell on the album, I worked with Kendrick on the album, you know, like the homies, A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown,” he said. “I just kept it real in house with my homies. This my first album; it’s real special to me. I don’t wanna be messing with this dude, with this dude, this dude. It’s all in house, it’s the same Q. Like the fans, I’mma give ‘em what they want.”
Q elaborated, explaining that the lyricists he grew up listening to inspired him. “We caught that era in the ’90s where people was rapping like Jay, Big Pun, Big L, Pac, Biggie, we was there in that era, so we like heard a lot of that stuff. We just studied the game. Like, I’m 26 years old — I can’t be out there rapping no weak stuff. I gotta go out there and be serious. You gotta paint that picture, you gotta see the music. We actually see the music like paintings and pictures, like for real, not just saying that. When a beat come on, it’s like a color in your head and it’s like a movie or some shit, a camera just guiding you through what you need to say. That’s just how it is.”
