Green for the Money and Gold for the Honey!

Skip to the rants (27)


Well-known, revered and celebrated for over 35 years, The Bishop Don “Magic” Juan is the TRUE original World Famous Player and spiritual advisor to some of the world’s most influential and elite players in the game…and now, appropriately, the Emerica team.

Skateboarders are hustlers, finding our game outside, coming up in the streets, often operating beyond the law to make our ends. Still, only an elite few within skateboarding have the stone cold original style necessary to step their game up from everyday hustler to reach the pinnacle of greatness, becoming a TRUE PLAYER like The Bishop. That’s where Emerica comes in. The Bishop Don “Magic” Juan Emerica shoe shows respect to the greatest player of all time because game recognizes game.

With this exclusive collaboration with Emerica, The Bishop himself has bestowed his ultimate street knowledge and signature pimpalicious style upon a whole new generation of fellow street hustlers and skaters in order to graciously help them step their game up and join the ranks of his prestigious flock. This one-of-a-kind, authentic, truly pimped-out limited gem of a shoe ain’t for your average, everyday hustler. This shoe is FOR TRUE EMERICA PLAYERS ONLY!

The Bishop’s unmistakable style was dropped onto the Emerica McNally high-top shoe, creating bright green panels mixed with gator skin and gold detailing, gold laces, green star eyelets, a gold “Famous Players” star on the tongue, “The Bishop” written in gold on the heel, and a screened image of The Bishop and his ladies on the side panel to seal the deal. Step up your game with The Bishop in true Emerica style. As The Bishop himself would say, “Chuuuch!”


About The Bishop

Also known as The Archbishop Don “Magic” Juan, The Chairman of the Board or just Bishop, there is no refuting the fact that he is THE true original World Famous Player. Well-known, revered and celebrated for over 35 years, The Bishop has risen from cult recognition to the world stage…confidently strolling from the street to the front of the congregation to the center of the entertainment industry. After years of notoriously pimpin’ on the streets (the 1998 movie American Pimp featured his story), The Bishop’s life path was changed dramatically in 1985 after receiving a vision from the Most High. He retired from the pimpin’ game and founded his very own church and community assistance program in Chicago.

Ultimately founding and serving as the Chairman of the Board of The World Famous Players, an organization whose membership is coveted by players and celebrities around the globe, The Bishop has achieved a level of fame never before realized in the game. The Players Ball, held on The Bishop's birthday each year in Chicago, and featured on HBO's Pimps Up Hos Down, has become the world's most authentic street gathering of hip-hop stars, athletes, pimps and hustlers, spurring mainstream imitators around the world. In addition to this Emerica collaboration, The Bishop is once again stepping his game up with the creation of The Bishop, a lifestyle brand, reflecting the style, confidence and sexiness of The Bishop, Don "Magic" Juan.

  8. Yeah,I kind of agree with "Emericanpatriot". I think it's cool to recognize other talents. Just don't sell out like some companies. I respect Emerica for not being one of those sell out companies. I hope it stays that way.
