What’s Donald Glover’s Ceiling? Plus, Nick Cannon & Bhad Bhabie | Open Late With Peter Rosenberg

On this week's episode of Open Late, Peter Rosenberg kicks it with Nick Cannon for a conversation that touches on his “F*ck the Police” freestyle and how he views his role in the industry. “I can host something with children on Nickelodeon, but I'mma also speak my mind as a black man,” Cannon says. “As long as it's pure, true, and authentic, I don't think anybody can argue [with] what I have to say.”

Rosenberg also sits down with Karrueche Tran, Tee Grizzley, and Get in Line host Racks Hogan for a panel discussion that gets into Childish Gambino's new record “This Is America,” Nicki Minaj choosing her album release date as the same day her ex Nas is planning to release his, and if Post Malone's record-breaking chart success is really that impressive.

Later, Bhad Bhabie stops by to talk about fame and the criticism that comes with it, and Desiigner shuts down the stage with a performance of “Priice Tag” off his latest project L.O.D.

Racks Finesses His Way Into Copping the New Supreme x North Face Collab | Get in Line

This week’s Supreme drop included a range of spring-ready essentials like zip-up shirts, velour jackets, soccer polos, and corduroy camp caps; however, the most anticipated pieces were definitely the Metallic designs made in collaboration with the North Face. (Those silver Mountain Bib Pants? So good.)

In episode two of Get in Line, Racks Hogan hits up the Supreme SoHo location, where he catches up with box-logo fiends attempting to get their hands on the iridescent garms. Racks unfortunately had zero luck securing a number in Supreme’s ticketing system, so he’s relying on his resources to cop the pieces.

“Sometimes you gotta just holla at people that’s on the street that you see with the shopping bag,” Racks says. “The shopping bag is an indicator that there’s something in the bag. If there’s something in the bag, you pull something out of your pocket, and you get what’s in the bag. That’s how it works.”

Will he succeed? Or will Racks strike again?

The Art of Reselling: A Numbers Game That Demands Patience and Finesse

Whether or not you're a fan of the reselling game, you can't deny the massive market that has been created because of it.

To give you a better idea of its history and what goes into it, Complex News spoke with Supreme enthusiast Racks Hogan and Rich “Maze” Lopez of Sole Collector about the art of reselling and what makes one item more hype than others.

Racks says that while he does work in the reselling industry, he's not a fan of being called a reseller because there's so much more to the process. “I don't like the term 'reselling' because I feel like it takes away from the actual work that a person puts in,” he explains. “I would never call a person that freezes they ass off, dedicates their time, does their homework, I would never just degrade them to a term like reseller.”

Check out the full video above, and if you missed it, Racks, Jerry Lorenzo, ASAP Ferg, and more spoke with Chris Gibbs and Complex's Karizza Sanchez about the pros and cons of exclusive drops. You can watch that below.

Jerry Lorenzo, ASAP Ferg & Deon Point Discuss the Pros and Cons of Exclusive Drops | ComplexCon(versations)

If you haven't lined up for a limited clothing release or sneaker drop, you probably know someone who has. It's a reality in streetwear culture today that affects retailers and consumers, and has also given way to a massive resale market. 

At ComplexCon 2017, Union LA's Chris Gibbs and Complex's own Karizza Sanchez hosted the Drop Science panel, which highlighted the pros and cons of exclusive drops. Jerry Lorenzo (founder, Fear of God), Deon Point (creative director, Concepts), Kevin Le (marketing supervisor, Bape), Racks Hogan, and ASAP Ferg joined in on the conversation to offer their insight on the topic.

The resale market for sneakers and limited drops has become a billion dollar industry, and retailers and creatives realize it's impossible to prevent people from selling the product to earn a few extra bucks. “It's definitely a gift and curse for sure. You like to see your product skyrocket and reach an elevated cost in what people paid, but you want people wearing your shit,” Point explains. “If I see a kid… they tag me in [a photo] like, 'Yo, I'm selling these.' Motherfucker I want you to wear 'em!”

Lorenzo offers a similar sentiment about his Fear of God line. “I love to see kids wearing it and enjoying it, but you can only do so much from this side. Once it hits the market it kind is what it is, and you have to not really be attached to that after part of the transaction.”

Racks Hogan has built up a rep as a go-to reseller in the New York area, and he breaks down his approach to how he decides the price for certain product. Ferg also recounts the time he waited in line to cop the Nike Air Yeezy, and based on his story it wasn't the safest environment to be in.

Bradford Shellhammer of eBay also drops in to share some data about the e-commerce giant, as well as give away a pair of the limited Shoe Surgeon x eBay x Jordan 1.

Catch the full video up top, and keep it locked to Complex as we'll be sharing more ComplexCon(versations) panels featuring the likes of André 3000, Rick Ross, Lena Waithe, Ryan Coogler, Virgil Abloh, Cam'ron, and more.
