I’m not one for going negative, however, in a year that has disappointed on so many levels, it seems fitting to re-evaluate the world around us and identify what we’d like to see changed going into the new year.

Sneaker and streetwear culture are, at their core, subjective. You might like a shoe that your friends think is trash, and they might like a particular style that you just don’t understand. With other things, though, there are pretty clearly defined lines as to what constitutes “good” and “bad.”

Therefore, I’ve rounded up aspects of sneaker culture that I believe were disappointing in 2020. Some you may agree with, others you may not. Either way, I think we’re all on the same page in that we’re tentatively excited for what 2021 has in store for us.

Richie Wess is a Tampa, Florida-bred MC, CEO, and Entrepreneur. Richie wears several hats outside of being an artist. He also owns his own label Young Trillionaire Click Entertainment also known as “YTC ENT.” Richie believes his independent longevity has been due to him constantly evolving with the times in music.

Evolving with the times, he has recently released his latest album "Trained to Go" that was released under Warner Music Group as a partner with his own long-standing label. Now that the album is released, Richie is looking forward to getting back to touring and of course releasing more new music. Richie West is no stranger to success. You have heard Richie Wess on one of his many collaborations with Drake, Rick Ross, The Game, Rich The Kid, Calboy, Fat Joe, Young Scooter and many more.

Last year alongside Rich the Kid and Smokepurpp, Richie co-headlined two world tours with these talented artists. Collaborating and touring with some of the biggest artists in the game, Richie has definitely established his name in hip-hop music and culture. With his most recent project, "Trained To Go" streams are almost at half a million on Spotify and his latest music video "Poppin" did almost one million views in less than twenty-four hours.

Continuing to tour, continuing to run YTC, and continuing to make good music is what Richie remains focused on as his successful music career develops. Being more than a rapper, running a label, and becoming more entrepreneurial, Richie is paving the way for future artists. Having already worked with some of the biggest artists in rap over the years, Richie is only looking to evolve his career so stay tuned and be on the lookout for this rising star!

The 30th of October 2020, Honolulu-based rapper TAUREAN MEACHAM is exploding back onto the conscious hip-hop scene with ‘BLAKK RADIKAL’, his third project this year and his best work to date. This album is raw, real, full of rage — and it deserves to be heard. He’s talking ancestors and martyrs (‘Saviour’), slavery and shootings (‘Hands In The Sky’), anxiety and insomnia (‘PTSD’). It’s a lot to tackle in one record — and yet Meacham nails it with inimitable finesse. This, above all else, is an album of substance.

“The album is my most complete work to date. There are no wasted bars.” — TAUREAN MEACHAM From an epic intro with soaring Bond-esque orchestral textures (‘The Gift and The Curse’), to a playful Latin inspired/speakeasy jazz crossover (‘Camp Lo’), to the bassy, bossy trap track ‘Thrones’, Meacham proves over and again that he’s not only an artist who understands melody and rhythm, but a self-managed, self-published hip-hop veteran whose level of storytelling, rap flow, production value and attention to detail is impressively, consistently masterful. “The sound is the album spans all sounds of hip hop.

Born in Staten Island, New York in 1996, Taurie embraced her artistic talent in school shows, singing, dancing and performing on stage. The spotlight was a natural space for her to be in. At age 11, Taurie wrote her first song which she performed in the family living room and never looked back.

At 19, she found herself in an actual music studio for the first time, helping a friend mix a playlist for a party. She picked up studio engineering and showed innate expertise with natural ease. After putting that playlist together, Taurie could not stay away from the studio.

She suspended her pursuit of becoming a Neurosurgeon and decided to teach herself everything about studio recording of music.
