New Arrivals from Flud Watches





For those of you who liked the 1st offerings we had from Flud Watches and for the guys who liked them but said they were too small, Flud Watches has finally released the Cartridge. A very stylish, futuristic looking wristwatch with a large face, a very comfortable band, and plenty of hidden features. We only have 4 of these in, one of every color, oppsssssss correct that we only have 3 (the white was just purchased). If you like it, better come and buy it, because you know how it goes down up here. Until We Speak Again PEACE.

Just To Get You Through Friday: Funny and Disturbing At The Same Time

Well I have seen numerous home videos of people re-enacting the "All My Single Ladies" video but this by far is the best. When I say the best I don't mean it in the sense of I enjoy watching the video, but the best in terms of it offers everything that a spoof (spin off video) should. It is equally entertaining, disturbing, gross, and it shows this mans talent (which clearly isn't dancing). I should warn you prior to watching, that this guys junk (his privates) is about a second from being exposed, so if you have any young children around you should probably make them go watch cartoons or something. Depending on how much we get done today we have a bunch more to post on the blog, so just stay tuned. Until We Speak Again PEACE

Smoking and Blogging: Never A Good Combo

Well it is now 12:10AM, just finished repairing the floor for our special visitors (well not really for them, its for yall, but it had to be done before they arrived). Anywho, were all beat, but before we leave I just wanted to hit yall with a couple things. As everyone knows I'm a Sneaker Fiend so of course I got a "Sneaker Woody" when I saw this. Nike is coming with the heat once again in 2009. No dates have been confirmed for any of these beauties but pics are sometimes enough to get us through the day. Check them out, analyze them, and let us know what you think. I will provide more details on each in the AM. You can Thank Us Later.





Tomorrow will be a pretty busy day at Sneak Peek, but we promise we will be blogging each and every day that we are open from now on. We hope to see everyone soon and until we speak again PEACE.

Hey Mr. President - President Obama Outlines Economic Stimulas Package

Don't get it twisted, we are a Streetwear Boutique, but with our goal at Sneak Peek to be socially responsible, we are well aware that there are plenty of people that will visit our website and blog before they will visit any of the News Outlets that cover politics. For this thing called "America" to get back to where we once were or better then before, its gonna take a group effort (that means all of us). Pay attention to what President Obama is saying, HE IS TRYING TO HELP US. We out for the weekend but we will back on Monday. Have a good weekend and Stay Safe, and Until We Speak Again PEACE.

Sneak Peek In The Community





Last Friday I had the privilege of visiting Lanier Middle School and teaching a 8th grade Math class for the entire day. My goal was to help the children realize how the things they were learning in their Math class related to everyday adult life, and various ways I attacked Mathematics while in school to make the task easier or even enjoyable. While I accomplished my goal, the kids gave me so much more then I could ever imagine. I wasn't really sure how they would even accept me but ITS FUNNY HOW MUCH KIDS PAY ATTENTION TO YOU WHEN YOU CARRYING A JAR OF CASH AND DRESS LIKE THEM (TEACHING TRICK). I'm looking forward to going back next month and hopefully taking some more people with. Check out these photos and see for yourself. Happy Friday Everyone, Fit Friday will hopefully return Next Week if we have time. Until We Speak Again PEACE.

A Day For The History Books: January 20, 2009


I awoke out of bed and something just felt different about today. My bed softer then ever, my shower hotter then ever, my breakfast shake fruitier (if thats a word (no homo)) then ever. I felt so capable this morning as though I could accomplish anything I put my mind to. Not that I haven't felt this way before, but today was different because not only did I know that I could do anything I wanted but for the 1st time ever the world saw that I could do anything I wanted, including rise to the highest position, in the highest office in the world as President of the United States of America. I couldn't quite get a grip of this prior to today but it all just set in and I feel bigger, I feel stronger, I feel smarter, and I feel more capable then I ever have. I and the rest of the Sneak Peek family would like to say Thank You to our 44th President of the United States of America President Barack H. Obama for everything you have done, are doing, and will do. We all wish you nothing but the best in the upcoming 8 years (yeah I'm claiming a 2nd term) and we will join you by doing our part to make this country better then ever before. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST TAKING IT ALL IN :)

New Music Monday: Martin Luther King Jr. "I Have A Dream"

I think its understandable that we have decided do something different on this day by uploading the video of Martin Luther King's " I Have A Dream" Speech from August 28, 1963.



I really can't explain the emotions I get everytime I hear the message but its a remarkable feeling that I wish we all could experience. I am truly touched to see that due to the work Dr. King and so many others put in during that time I am able to go to school, I am able to own a business, I am to look myself in the mirror and see more then what society expects me to be, I am able to VOTE, and so, so many other things. While watching the tribute video to Dr. King at today's Grizzlies game I couldn't help but think that the state of African Americans today would not be strong enough to deal with what was going on then. We don't have what it would have taken to not only uprise against our opressors but to keep going when they didn't give in immediately. I have taken deep interest in Dr. King's teaching, his life, and his legeacy since my teenage years and encourage all to just spend a little time understanding his work, who he really was, and what he was telling us. Sneak Peek, as well as myself are living products of exactly what him and every other person who was apart of any civil rights movements from the end of slavery to now worked for. Perosnally everyone at or involved with Sneak Peek - Memphis would like to say Thank You. Happy 80th Birthday Dr. KIng

Mosley Tribes x Crooks & Castles Castellanos



So I imagine the conversation will go a little like this: (a few months from now)

Customer: Hey do yall carry those Mosley Tribes
Sneak Peek: Oh yeah we have these Castellanos in a couple different colors
Customer: Naw not those, I was looking for this collab piece they did with Crooks & Castles that Jay-Z always wears(also carried at Sneak Peek).
Sneak Peek: LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, you should have stopped by January 15, 2008.
Customer: Huh, this is my 1st time coming down here. I mean I knew you guys were open but I was shopping at that other place (Insert That Name Here)
Sneak Peek: LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, damn fools, we told yall we were serious about this thing from jump. Those bad boys were here one day and no more after that. 5 pair gone in one day.
Customer: Well I will just go and get them from........
Sneak Peek: Stopppppp!!!!!! You know they don't have nothing like this, yall are gonna learn.

Wondering what I'm talking about (above), well to my surprise my UPS delivery man showed up with a unexpected package in tote. We weren't expecting anything but when I opened the box and saw what was enclosed (Sold Out Everywhere: Mosley Tribes x Crooks & Castles Castellanos), I called my Fav 5 (customers), and guess what each of them said, put my name on it I'm coming today. Keneth even called from New York and got his. They all Sneak Peek, what about you? And if you don't then ask yourself why, unless you enjoy looking like everyone else and wearing clothing 2 or 3 seasons old, then by all means go there. I'm gonna laugh so hard when someone comes and ask us about those things in a couple weeks. Nothing more to say, Goodnight and Until We Speak Again PEACE.

Where Do I Start.......................................




So many things have happened in the last 2 days I don't really know where to begin. I'm gonna get in what I can before we close and the rest will be posted tomorrow. Well after long waiting the people I can actually say have never let me down came thru again. RaEisha finished painting the signage and Mr. Minkin came to hang it. Its really beautiful (well at least I think so). I had to actually point it out to people that have been coming to the store since we opened with nothing up there, and when I asked Devin, he didn't say anything bad so I guess its okay. Tanyel told me no one would love the store like I do, so ................. who cares what yall think its up and its beautiful (but if you do like it let me know). We still have more to complete but just that up is a step in the right direction. Okay whats next (you know I'm never satisfied). No more driving back and fourth down Marshall Ave. trying to find where we are, when you see the Golden...........ummmmmm I won't call it arches (we gonna find a name for it). Enjoy the photos and Until we speak again PEACE.

King James In The Building: An Inspiring Message


Lebron James putting it down in Traffic

King James at the Free Throw Line

Well last night I Became A Witness of The Great King James in person. Now I'm well aware that as a visitor the man should have been boooooooooed, but truthfully you can not. Its one thing to see him play on television but in person is a whole different story. Even on a sub-par night he was nothing short of amazing and gave the crowds their monies worth as there was not a sad face in the building, except I'm sure in the Home Locker Room. Getting to the inspiring part. Keeping in mind that I have only been in the city of Memphis for a little over 2 years, I have never seen that many people at a Grizzlies game before, not only that but I have never seen that many people at a Grizzlies game that excited before. And to think all of this over the presence of one man. As I sat back in my seat just thinking about what exactly was going on, I got so inspired. Inspired to do great things, achieve greatness, and be the absolute best at what I am doing. I can somewhat say that the story of Mr. James reminds me of Sneak Peek. He really had a rough start when he entered the league, though everyone was aware that he was gonna be the one of the best there was, so many things had to be improved to his very unpolished, raw, and un-rounded game, but he truly desired to be the best. Looking at Sneak Peek I see the same. We have great potential to not only be the greatest boutique in the city of Memphis, but in the south, in the nation, and in the world. Right now its just potential, our business (in my own opinion) is new, we have no reputation, and we are learning on the job, but we have the desire to be the best and the drive to actually make that reality. Now looking at Mr. James he has it all; the skills, the power, the athletic ability, and the heart. He has gotten to the point where his basketball skills have allowed him to reach into other markets and hopefully master those on his mission to become a billionaire. Everything listed above came on the back of hard work. Sneak Peek and everyone involved works hard at what we do and we deeply desire to master our industry. Look at us now and look and us in a couple years or maybe months and we will be exactly what we set out to be.......................The Greatest. Hopefully we can inspire others to reach for the stars as Mr. James has to us. If he reading this I would like to say Thank You. Until We Speak Again PEACE.

Crooks & Castles Has Just Landed At Sneak Peek





So yall asked and we answered as always (cause thats just what we do). For those of you who don't know Crooks & Castles is really one of the most dominant Streetwear Brands in the game right now and the way things are looking, they are only getting better. With a healthy combo of Tees, Crews, Sweaters, and New Eras I don't really expect these to last very long. Come by the store and pick yours up today and Until We Speak Again PEACE.

New Music Monday (On Tuesday): Lil Wayne featuring Pharrell - Yes

Well 2008 was a pretty busy and successful year for both Lil Wayne and Pharrell Williams. Chart topping singles, chart topping LP's (albums), and plenty of collabs and promotions to be taken care of for the rest of their lives. So how does each start off 2009, by getting together on this banger. Who knows what it will be released on, really who cares THIS SHIT IS CRAZY. Check it out and let us know what you think. I can see everyone rushing to the dance floor when this comes out the speakers. Looking forward to what else will come from this relationship. Remember where you heard it first. Until We Speak Again PEACE (I'm Not Even Gonna Acknowledge The Fact That We Are A Day Late, Yall Know I'm Always Busy Getting To The Money)

Air Jordan 2009 Preview with Head Designer Jason Mayden

So I bet you thought some people at Nike just get together, draw shoes, and thats it. Well your wrong, totally wrong. Many of us often forget that though Jordans look great on our feet, they were also the 1st Basketball Shoe that used technical research to improve how the game is played and how the athlete feels during competition. This video gives us a deeper look into what went into designing the new Jordan 2009 (oh if you didn't know, the Jordan 23 was the last release to be numbered). Head Designer Jason Mayden walks the viewer through a couple features of the Jordan 2009 and explains why they are there and how they will help. Hope yall enjoy and Until We Speak Again PEACE

A Sneak Peek at Kanye's New Louis Vuitton Shoe (Yeah Thats Right Kanye's Louis Vuitton Shoe)


Well let me 1st clear up the fact that I don't know Mr.West personally, so me referring to him as Kanye is totally not me........... So let me revise this thing. Kanye West has been busting his ass over at LV headquarters (and people said he was just doing it to keep his name relevant, SILLY FOOLS). Well yesterday Mr. West gave the world a preview of some collab pieces he has been working on. A pretty spiffy Deck Shoe wrapped in all white leather with a white sole, and you know there will be some special details that will be revealed once it drops. This is just one of the six footwear designs he has been working on and we can't wait to see what else comes from this beautiful relationship. For those of you who have been asking about the Air Yeezy's, the release date is still uncertain but it will be around March, April, or May (I was at least able to narrow it down to 3 months for yall) and trust we are working diligently to make sure we will have them. Well gotta get to work, hopefully will see all of you soon. Until we speak again PEACE.

Sneak Peek Is Getting A Sign: We Official Now

Well yesterday was rather a busy day, and though it was pretty un-entertaining (most real business isn't) one bright spot of the day was when Sneak Peek Family Member Mr. Minkin came through the door with a bunch of stuff to begin on our signage. Everything came along pretty well, within a week or so it should be up along with the rest of the stuff. Check the photos as it comes along. NO MORE DRIVING BY THE SPOT WITHOUT KNOWING WHATS BEHIND THE WINDOWS. SNEAK PEEK IS HERE. MORE PICS TO COME, AND UNTIL WE SPEAK AGAIN PEACE.

Hip Hop Rules The World: Lil Wayne Invades ESPN and ESPN2 "First Take"

For those of you who doubt the power of the Hip Hop dollar (Black Peoples Money), just check this out. I got a call this morning from Sneak Peek Family Member Jade, telling me I had to turn to ESPN, well it was impossible because I was at the store but when I heard who was on, I wondered across the street to Quetzal's to check it out on the Big Screen. Weezy F. Baby aka Lil' Wayne was on one of my favorite shows on my favorite channel, ESPN's First Take and he handled his business against Skip Bayless (who murders everyone who steps up to the plate). This just shows you the influence we have as a people, as a community, and as a generation. If you are not taking full advantage of this great thing called Hip Hop to further your life, your education, you financial situation, or your status in your community then your a fool. Sneak Peek and so many of our customers, friends, and associates are the voice of Hip Hop Culture in Memphis and we will be heard. Big Ups To ESPN and Lil' Wayne for Making That Happen................One Day. Until We Speak Again PEACE.

New Year, New Stuff, and New Faces

So the New Year has brought Sneak Peek some New Surprises. New Clothes Coming, New Accessories Have Arrived and Are Coming, and the best surprise of all, our New Employee (drum roll please).............. RaEisha better known as RaRa. We getting extra serious about this business thing, so yall had to know we were gonna start stealing employees from other spots around the city. When coming to RaRa, we definitely made her top priority and sealed the deal a couple weeks ago. So with that I would like to introduce yall to the newest member of the Sneak Peek Family. RaRa (and the crowd goes wild...........YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY)

Until We Speak Gain PEACE.

New Music Monday: Advice On Producing From The Neptunes

There were no albums being released this week that are worth notating, so I searched the net for a couple hours trying to find something to replace the New Music Monday segment. I was about ready to give up when I ran across this. The Neptunes sat down for a quick interview with datpiff.com and spoke some knowledge on producing music. The Neptunes are definitely Heavyweights in the game so maybe all of you aspiring Producers or music artist can learn something. We are just here to help in anyway we can.

Video Provided by DatPiff.com


The holidays are over so we can get back to work, we have alot of new stuff in the works so just stay tuned to the website and check your emails for updates on new products and upcoming events as they become available. We hope to see you all soon and Until We Speak Again PEACE.
