Is Dallas Austin really that stupid?
Back in July 2006, Grammy award-winning producer/songwriter Dallas Austin pleaded guilty to drug charges in Dubai, after Dubai Airport authorities found more than a gram of cocaine in his luggage when he landed.
Although he was facing a four-year prison sentence, Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashad Al Maktoum gave Austin a surprise royal pardon and allowed him to travel home to the United States.
Fast forward to earlier today, when we received a press release promoting Austin’s new sneaker. The kicks are named Rowdy after his record label and the release’s headline read “Blunts and Condoms: Both Fun To Unwrap”.
Here’s an excerpt:
“The sneaker has a hidden pocket for condoms and other goodies – it also features a “how to” guide for rolling the perfect blunt as well as the classic Rowdy wing insignia.”
It goes on to say the shoe retails for $110 and reflects Austin’s “personal style”.
