It is an 8-week, 2 hour educational seminar and career planning course. The curriculum is based on topics and issues discussed on the popular, live OSD podcast, along with current events, sneaker releases, and how to get your find your path to a career in the athletic footwear industry.
The 8 week program received rave reviews from students, sneaker lovers, various blogs, as well as the guest teachers such as legendary MC Milk Dee, and Black Moon's 5 ft, as well as quite a few sponsors. "The Winter 2011 session looks to add a couple of new wrinkles in the toe-box as we say on our talk show" said Sean. "That will include a field trip or two, but most importantly be prepared to have your love for kicks challenged" he added.
Classes for the winter 2011 session will again be held in a very famous location in Times Square in New York City and will be available online.

MP3: SL Jones - "Hustlin'" feat. Killer Mike & Pill

SL Jones has been on a roll in the second half of 2011, releasing two mixtapes and an EP since May, and now, with a new mixtape, Flight Risk, dropping before year's end, the Little Rock, Arkansas, rapper and Grind Time Official affiliate is holding fans over with a special cut, "Hustlin'," pulled from the Grind Time vaults and featuring Killer Mike and Pill.
The track, one that SL refers to as a "just add lyrics" type of beat, thanks to the "Hustlin' is a must" vocal sample pulled from Malice of the Clipse and chopped up for the song's chorus, was produced by frequent Grind Time collaborators Smiff & Cash, and from there, explains SL, the collaboration came easy. "This is just that signature Grind Time music," he notes. "It's always gonna be grind related when the three of us collaborate, and back when Smiff & Cash played the beat for me, I knew it was a perfect joint for the three of us. I hit Pill and Killer Mike and they came through as usual."
