Dynamo the (Adidas)superstar

There’s black magic, white magic and now presenting 3 stripe magic!

By Konate Primus

Everyone wants to be a star and it most definitely is possible, you can be whatever you want in this world, but in order to be a superstar you have to have a certain special quality. Something that leaves people with their mouth’s open, always wanting more and more after every performance. A quality so undeniable it leaves both your friends and foes in disbelief greatness. Muhammad Ali was a superstar, Michael Jackson, Jesse Owens, Run DMC, those guys were superstars. Gilbert Arenas Has superstar-esque qualities but he needs some fine tuning. The difference between those guys and their competition aside from being the best at their craft is they moved the crowd every single time they performed. Muhammad Ali dancing around the ring along with his loud antics. Michael Jackson with his gold underwear and glitter glove gliding across the stage. Run DMC rocking gold rope chains, shell toes, Kangol hats and Rev Run’s “no one is better than me and I can prove it” swagger is what separated them from everyone else.

Now there is a new superstar among us and he goes by the name Dynamo. The magician from the UK turning heads world wide and doing it in a 3 stripe fashion! Dynamo is known in the UK as the Hip Hop magician, captivating audiences with his unique brand of street magic. Most recently seen dazzling Miami locals with his unique brand of magic and exposing the city’s rich, local flavor through the eyes of an Englishman on holiday. To truly capture all of Miami’s essence, Dynamo visited Little Havana, the Arts district, South Beach, locals-only hang-outs, and other areas off the beaten path, mesmerizing a wide cross-section of interesting people with his street magic.

Check it out for yourself, just click on the films button. I thought it’s quite interesting, dude is sick!

    DYNAMO!! Man, this clip does not do dude justice! I’ve seen this kid in person and I can tell you, he is SICK!!! There are tricks and cats that are nice with the hands, but then there is that ‘next’ level, that level that is somewhere outside of what we all understand – dude lives over there, for real. His card tricks make David Blaine look retro. But that whole levitation thing? Craziest thing I ever saw.

    dude at the end running away with his shopping cart was the funniest thing i’ve seen today..!

    If you can be bothered theres footage of him in London etc on youtube/aol, longer videos and same sorta stuff, still funny though.

    how exactly does this relate to basketball?

  • riggs

    ive seen the video, do you know that almost all of the tricks he’s done are old? there are actual youtube videos teaching each one of those tricks (i cant believe he pulled out the “self-tying” sneakers)

    Hardly @ work: Konate covers more than just basketball on his blog…guess you never noticed.

  • http://slamonline.com Konate

    Hardly @ work hardly pays attention. look at my archive player there might be a pattern there.

    Harlem, Blaine’s done the shoe lace trick before as well as many of Dynamo’s tricks

  • Parsons

    I live in the UK and have never heard of him and to be honest after watching this video I don’t think that’s really going to change.

  • AP

    These are some pretty nice tricks…but I have seen David Blaine do them.

  • Bryant Reeves

    The real magic would’ve been to make those bikini tops disappear

  • hard(ly)@work-literally

    –konate—it wasnt a diss @ all—i just wanted more substantial hoops news on a slow day and my lakers on the brink on losing the series–ok ? im sure your site (which i admit i did not even go to)is very nice—–

    That was a hilarious reaction from the dude with the shopping cart.

  • Danny Kraks

    Dynamo is sick – I’ve never seen David Blaine put a knife through his foot or pull a can out his shoe… I’ve seen his other videos and he is doing things no-one else does… like he moves a girls tan line up her arm. He’s big in the UK, had his own show and has been on all the major talk shows like J Ross and performed for Snoop, Busta, Jay Z etc… people like to hate cause he’s a young guy making moves but I reckon he’ll take over in the next few years…
