ShuChef: Questlove x Nike Part Deux Dunk Hi BZ

Froto shot by Cognito- Culture Capture Champs™

These have to drop stateside. Whats the word @questlove ?


Questlove of The Roots fame is known for his snazzy drumming skills, his oversized ‘fro, and more recently, his ‘Inside ?uestlove’s Mind’ segment on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon segment in which the drummer’s thoughts are narrated by the Late Night host. Perhaps one of his thoughts was to do another Nike Sportswear collaboration, and this February, his thoughts have come to shape in the form of two Nike Dunk Highs. The first Varsity Red Dunk High features a unique instep-strap/shroud with button appliques on the edges, with a special ?uestlove logo on the tongue and heel. The tonal yellow pair features no ‘strap’ construction, but does feature the same tongue and heel ?uestlove branding. These are a very limited release and will hit exclusively at UNDFTD in Tokyo/Shizuoka this Friday, February 11th, so take another look below and let us know what you think of this latest ?uestlove collaboration.

Greg "Cognito" Barr first entered the hip hop world as a dancer during the early 1990s in the DC metro area. Later his love for hip hop brought him to Atlanta, GA where he formed the underground group massinfluence. With massinfluence, the relationships within the music industry grew both here in the US and abroad during their many European tours with the likes of the Company Flow, Beat Junkies, Jurassic 5, De La Soul, Blackstar and many others. Also during these years is when Cognito, also known as "Nito", put his mark in hip hop iconography by introducing his line of t-shirts "Nonstop Hip Hop" which was featured in classic video by De La Soul and Jeru the Damaja. Over the past 10 years, Nito has captured classic footage of some of hip hops greatest, including Jay Z, Mos Def, The Gorillaz, Nikka Costa, MF DOOM, De La Soul, Pharoahe Monch and The Roots. Recently, Cognito shot and compiled 4 years of concert and behind the scenes footage of Talib Kweli for a still to be released documentary.
