Music Alert :: “RUN UP ON YA” Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Elle Varner prod. Statik Selektah

adidas Originals :: Original Superstar

This year adidas Originals sets out to question what it means to be a superstar, beginning with this film featuring Pharrell Williams, David Beckham, Rita Ora and Damian Lillard.
