So after I rihanna puma signed to MMG it was like Reebok was hitting me up, Supra was hitting me, and then Puma came into play. I really had respect for the way they did business you know with their situation with Meek [Mill]. Also I ve always been a fan of Puma. As a kid I always used to rock them .there s a few different pair of [Puma] Suedes that my parents used to always buy me and things like that. So I already had huge respect for their brand. It was just the situation overall was better than what everybody else was hitting me with.Cool. Well you hit on my have you always been a fan of Puma question but you and Casey Veggies recently dropped the Fresh Veggies mixtape, which was crazy dope by the way thanks man. the mixtape was sponsored by Puma.
How does Puma come into play with your musical endeavors?I think that s one of the many reasons I tried to do a partnership with Puma. Because they re just really about seeing young people win you know. And they re down to get behind anything that makes sense. You know they have a partnership with Casey as well, but they also were aware that me and him had a relationship way before they had reached out to either of us, and way before we had record deals. And that s always somebody puma rihanna I ve been working on music with, and we had always discussed doing a mixtape. Then we just really had gotten the time to do it and Puma really gave us the resources to do what we needed to do musically. They really put a lot of energy behind it. We were able to do three free shows for the fans out in New York, LA, and Chicago that were a huge success. So they just really supported a puma fierce good idea and I respect them for that 100%.With artists like you, Meek Mill, and Solange on the Puma team, Puma definitely understands the marriage between music and sneakers.

Metal Gear Solid fans who love to wear their beloved franchise on their sleeve (literally in this case) were treated to a surprise by series visionary Hideo Kojima yesterday as he revealed a series of new collaborations with PUMA. Having been a longtime fan of the brand, Kojima assures everybody of the quality of their PUMA gear. I wonder if Kojima follows sneaker blogs and knows quality is a sticking point for sneakerheads nowadays.Anyways, Kojima tweeted several pictures of the two PUMA G-Trainer Mids that will get the MGS treatment. The first colorway features a premium leather upper with bronze accents while the second features a military camo style with suede overlays that s not unlike something series protagonist Snake (or Big Boss or whoever the lead is in Ground Zeroes and the Phantom Pain) would wear in the battlefield. You know, where love blooms The shoes along with some special edition jackets (those are sold out now though) are available now for pre-order on the PUMA Japan site for about $195.00 a pair and they will be available to ship on March 20.
