Have you ever seen something on a TV show, in a music video, or through a commercial and thought, man, I should pick that up? Have you ever been frustrated you couldn’t just press a button and get it delivered to your door?

Focusing on sneakers and streetwear, DroppTV airs a constantly rotating selection of music videos and custom video content. See a jacket you dig?

It’s what you’d expect from mastermind Gurps Singh Rai, one of the minds behind the service. We caught up with Gurps to talk grails, his latest pickups, and what sneakers have been in his rotation lately.
