Cordae isn’t willing to affiliate his name with just anyone. The rapper is opening up about how selective he is when it comes to securing brand deals amid the release of his official collection with PUMA.
The HI-LEVEL collection launched on Thursday with an RS-X, Suede, and a range of apparel including a jacket, hoodie, sweatpants, and three T-shirts. It’s an organic partnership Cordae described as a “full-circle moment,” due to his lifelong respect for the brand.
“In middle school, the public school I went to in PG County, we had to wear uniforms,” Cordae told Nice Kicks. “It was a white shirt, khaki pants, and all-black sneakers, so I always rocked the PUMA suedes.”
The rapper aims to maintain integrity with his brand and the companies he aligns himself with. While speaking on his newest partnership with Bootleg Kev, Cordae explained how careful he is when agreeing to

(Bloomberg) — When the governor of the Bank of England stood up to address 300 City bigwigs last month, there was a striking difference from previous Mansion House dinners — no-one was wearing black-tie.
The historic relaxation of one of London’s stuffiest dress codes was a relief to many attendees after temperatures struck a record-breaking 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) earlier in the day.
But heat waves and increasingly casual fashion habits pose a headache to one of the capital’s best-known industries on the other side of town: the tailors of Savile Row.
Savile Row has faced a tough time after stores closed during Covid following several years of rising rents, but the latest threats in its 200 years of history are perhaps more subtle and pervasive.
“The boundaries are blurred now” between the office and the outside world, said Nick Paget, senior editor at WGSN, a retail trends
Consumers are demanding cleaner products across the board, advocating more and more for the removal of harmful chemicals and toxins from the products they use.
Companies that are more conscious of the environment and the impact on the consumer are the ones that are at the forefront of each industry today.
One industry that has struggled for decades when it comes to damaging ingredients or harming the environment is the beauty industry. The beauty industry generates more than $100 billion U.S. dollars in revenue each year, so its environmental impact is much too large to continue ignoring.
The average woman uses twelve different beauty products each day, some of which are makeup, nail polish, skin care, fragrances and more. However, many of these products are subject to major plastic pollution, harmful packaging or even animal testing. This is what inspired Chantelle Thompson to develop her very own beauty brand,

Overwatch 2 will Let You Use the Last Game’s Cosmetics
Blizzard has revealed cross-progression between Overwatch 1 and 2. Doing so requires an account merger – which many PC players don’t need to worry about, but console players can certainly get some use out of.
Normally, each player account on this varying platforms was its own isolated thing. Blizzard aims to cap that off, letting players merge them all onto a single Battle.Net account. This will allow everything to be tracked together, and is key in enabling this form of cross-progression.
It does come with a couple caveats, though. Merged accounts cannot contain two profiles from the same platform. So if, for example, you have two Xbox accounts, then you can’t put both into the same merged profile. But you can combine a Switch and Xbox account.
Overwatch is a game with an absolute ton of collectibles and skins, and
It’s 2 p.m. on a Thursday at A-Universal Pawn shop in Egypt Lake-Leto.
80s pop music is playing softly on the radio. Signed photos of Ben Affleck and Kevin Costner hang on the wall by the door, and guitars hover above glass jewelry cabinets.
Rick Evans, the shop owner, is talking with a regular customer about how to transform an earring into a belly ring for her.
After the busy rush subsides, his pawn shop is empty for about an hour.
Evans and his mother sit in matching gray recliners and drink coffee, as they do every Thursday together, to catch their breath before the next wave of customers.
Evans said he’s seen a lot of new faces in his shop lately, and heard a lot of talk about making ends meet.
“Everybody is talking about the rising prices, ” Evans said. “They’re talking about, you know, deciding whether or
