With the launch of adidas Originals “Leave a Legacy” campaign it makes perfect sense. DJ Neil Armstrong the Filipino-American New Yorker came to promote and he gave us his sample on his passion for “mash ups” which incorporates his style.

The press launch held at adidas flagship store in Greenbelt 3 was received by the hiphop community as another celebration in promoting the adidas Originals campaign. The event was jazzed up by the spins by DJ Nick Stampede prior to Armstrong’s introduction. It was like revelry for those who really appreciate this type of music. The program was hosted by Magic 89.9’s Slick Rick and Tony Bueno and late in the event Sam YG popped in and help out with the questions from the media.

“We will be kicking off the adidas Originals “Leave a Legacy” campaign in a Sunset BBQ party at the Skye Lounge this May 12 with our global brand ambassador, DJ Neil Armstrong” says Jason Gervasio, adidas Philippines Brand Communications & Sports Marketing Manager.


DJ Neil Armstrong has made waves in the music industry by being Jay-Z’s tour DJ and sharing the stage with the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce, Kanye West, P. Diddy and Linkin Park.
