Man, Pusha T needs to come with that new album soon. Though this isn’t quite the first single, King Push does tease a new song in adidas Originals’ new short film. Promoting the upcoming EQT Support Ultra King Push shoe (dropping November 3), the video gives us a two-minute taste of the track called “Bodega Babies” while celebrating the importance of the bodega in the hood. As the homies at OnSMASH pointed out, the song was actually played by Swizz Beatz, who you can hear vocals from, in his epic beat battle with Just Blaze earlier this year.

We may be used to seeing famous faces who have at least one foot (no pun intended) planted in street culture on Complex’s Sneaker Shopping, but their latest guest is a GOAT in his own right regardless. Shortly before he kicked off his campaign at the US Open, tennis legend Roger Federer swung by Stadium Goods in NYC to chop it up with Joe La Puma about growing up in Switzerland watching Michael Jordan, his love for John McEnroe and Andre Agassi, working with Tinker Hatfield on the Nike Zoom Vapor 9s and having his own Jordan shoe.

Catch the legend himself in action tomorrow in the US Open quarter-final against Juan Martin del Potro.

Tyler

Tyler, The Creator may be known for rocking — and collaborating with — Vans, but he’s switched allegiances and announced a new partnership with Converse. “CONVERSE AND I ARE FRIENDS NOW,” Tyler tweeted along with a short (yet explosive) promotional video. Tyler has been spotted wearing various colorways of the Converse One Star lately, including a possible Golf Wang pair, although it’s unclear what their collaboration has in store.

This Converse deal isn’t the only thing Tyler’s been working on: his new album Scum F*ck Flower Boy drops this Friday (July 14), followed by the premiere of his VICELAND show Nuts + Bolts on August 3.
