The Dropcast #108: DJ Clark Kent Has Too Many Sneakers

Highsnobiety Podcasts

DJ Clark Kent has created a dizzying array of work over the span of his career ranging from mixes to tracks with artists like Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z. The hip hop DJ and producer joins hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas on this week’s episode of ‘The Dropcast’ to talk sports, kicks, and music as he weighs sneaker against sneaker and music artists against each other.Sports fans have been raving about ESPN’s The Last Dance, a documentary that follows Michael Jordan and the Bulls through unseen footage from their 1997-98 championship season (2:53). Clark sees it as an opportunity to identify the greatest of all time once and for all, as younger sports fans finally witness Jordan in action. The quick hits turn to some new school kicks recently unveiled by ASICS and Kiko Kostadinov as the GEL-Aurania (7:33). Although Clark isn’t raving about them, he speaks to the essentiality of every sneaker and how the importance is measured through their connection to the consumer. A product that has done exactly that is the Supreme x Takashi Murakami box logo tee, which was released to support Covid-19 efforts (11:35). Stussy x Nike’s Air Zoom Spiridon Caged has been one of the most hyped sneaker collabs, and their first iteration seems to remain largely uncontested despite news of a second silhouette (15:46). Noah fills everyone in on Babyface and Teddy Riley’s Instagram battle, which viewers called a major fail after the artists called it quits due to sound problems (17:10). The second time was a charm, with four million users tuning in to the session. If Clark were to put a score to it, he would hand the victory to Babyface. As another big name who has since permeated the world of social media, Drake pulled a victory for breaking a TikTok record with “Toosie Slide,” and his luxurious bed which costs as much as a house has garnered just as much attention (24:51). This episode’s Question of the Week (QOTW) asked “What celeb has the best sneaker collection?” (34:12). Before the cast dives into the voicemails, Clark names a handful of his top sneakerheads and the quality he looks for in doing so. If you’ve been paying attention, it comes as no surprise that Clark copped a third pair of Sergio Tacchini sneakers along with the Air Fear of God 1 Triple Black, a full box of Fresh Prince of Bel Air gear with a dozen different sweatshirts and T-shirts, a Compound x New York Knicks cap, and the Supreme Murakami tee in “What’d You Cop?” (42:54). He’s also been busy gifting, packing away 400 boxes of sneakers to send off.Relevant Links:Twitter Is Absolutely in Love With ESPN’s ‘The Last Dance’ASICS & Kiko Kostadinov Unveil Their Latest Hybrid SneakerAdd the “Incredible Hulk” Colorway to Your Air Jordan 1 Rotation Supreme x Takashi Murakami Unveil New Box Logo TeeSupreme’s My Bloody Valentine Collab Is Absolute FireStüssy’s New Air Zoom Spiridon Caged 2 Surfaces in Another ColorwayBabyface & Teddy Riley’s Instagram Battle Was a Major Fail & Fans Are ScreamingDrake’s “Toosie Slide” Just Broke a Major TikTok RecordDrake’s Luxurious Bed Costs As Much As a House Learn more about your ad choices.
