You may have heard of clothing company 10 Deep. Heck, almost anyone who dresses mildly urban has. But the boys based out of New York seem to getting bigger and bigger with time with celebrity co-signs from newcomers Kid Cudi and Wale. the company was started in 1995, and the brand focuses on clothing that “conjures thoughts of movements, individuals, and ideologies of days past and present,” according to the website. Either way, they have a lot of great custom tee’s, custom fitted’s and even vinyl dolls. Check out some pictures of the attire below, and the website here to discover more about 10 Deep. Also, check out the lookbook for the Fall 2008 Collection (coming out September 2nd) here. Strength lies in the hands of an individual (10 fingers), not in the approval of one’s peers.

Lil Wayne failed to show up in court this morning in Manhattan to face charges for weapon possession stemming from last year when he was pulled over after performing in NYC. Perhaps he is having issues with his grill or something but whatever ailment it is, it is preventing the Lollipop rapper from driving himself to court. On the real..who drives themselves to court when they have the biggest selling Hip-Hop album in the country so far this year? Lame excuse Weezy…very lame.
Young Berg was arrested in NYC in the early hours of Saturday morning after getting into an argument with a limo driver while he and his entourage were riding around the city Turns out the driver was having none of the Chicago kids antics and called the cops.
