PHOTOS: Converse Band of Ballers, NYC

by Winston "Stone" Ford


Last week, Converse got both hipsters and hoods together on a non-discript basketball court for the Band of Ballers tournament. The exclusive tournament pitted such artists as Jim Jones, Mad Decent, Asher Roth, Pac Div, Matt and Kim and more, and was hosted by Miss Info and Peter Rosenberg. Ultimately, Jim Jone’s “Family” team was “Ballin’,” as they took home the ultimate prize. Couch Sessions homegirl Senari (as well as DJ Jerome Baker) was in the building and provided these pics. Read more about the Band of Ballers at Senari’s Village Voice column.

    The event was ill for some many reasons – it was 1:15 on a random August Wednesday, Brooklyn Crew – which consisted of Matt & Kim, Ninja Sonik and others had the entire a good quarter of the gym screaming BROOOOOOOOOOKKKLYYYNNNNNN and seeing Rosa Acosta & Miss Info 2 feet from me made my week.

    Converse went all out to make this a successful event, and they had a great turnout.
