Missoni x Converse Chuck Taylor 2012

The iconic Chuck Taylor enjoys another fresh zigzag redesign courtesy of Italian fashion house Missoni for Spring/Summer 2012. This new release finds the timeless Chuck wrapped in Missoni’s celebrated raschel knit and multi-stitch space-dyed cotton. Leather uppers and subtly branded, embossed toe-wraps round out the ultra-premium, First String package. Understandably, this collaboration will be available in extremely limited quantities, starting on April 14 at Missoni boutiques and selected Converse First String stockists.


Hot tips for Hot Lovers, How to remove her bra with one hand [Video]

Yeah, this is taking a page from the old school lovers handbook. I'd be interestsed in seeing the ladies respnse to this classic move today.


ESPN Michael Jordan "It's not crazy it's sports" [Video]

I don't usually like posting American sports stuff on here, I have my reasons, but this commercial is so good I couldn't help but post it. I also figured that a lot of you know who the hell Michael Jordan is.

Ever wondered what it would be like to share the same name with the greatest basketball player of all-time? In the latest ESPN spot titled “It’s Not Crazy, It’s Sports,” we meet a middle-aged white man who just so happens to share the same first and last name with none other than Michael Jordan. We watch as various people from all walks of life are disappointed when in fact, this MJ and that MJ have little in common

Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg set at Coachella [Video]

A great way to break the silence. This set had touch of Magic to it, not only were the backdrops, the features and the backing band on point, but there was also a performance from an eery Tupac hologram. That had most of Pac's mannerisms down pat, and had Snoop interacting with it. Is this the future? I can't say I wasn't there, the technology is impressive without a doubt, and opens up a whole lot of avenues for artists seeking to take their performances to another level. Imagine never having to go on tour, just shipping a hologram dvd to whaever remote corner of the world you were meant to perfom in.

G.O.O.D Music - Mercy [Artwork]

So tomorrow the first single will drop from the highly anticipated G.O.O.D Music album, and to whet your appetites the artwork for "Mercy," has been released. Simplistic and distinct, like the artwork for the G.O.O.D Friday tracks leading up to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I'm not too sure what strategy G.O.O.D will employ in getting the buzz leading up to the release date, but based on the evidence alone I'd be inclined to think that G.O.OD Fridays are back.


Kanye West ft. Dj. Khaled - Theraflu [Audio]

With the G.O.O.D Music album, looking like it's nearing it's release date, Kanye takes some time to not only drum up some attention, but also deal with a few issues that seem to have plagued the media, when it concerns him. The Wiz Khalifa/ Amber Rose, Kim Kardashian, and displays the kind of braggadocio that seems to have characterised the "Watch the Throne" album. Name checking various power players in the industry. It certainly has me amped for the first G.O.O.D single "Mercy, " which is set to drop tomorrow.

[Side Note]: It really pisses me off that international D.J's give props to Cape Town, while omitting Johannesburg.

Stalley ft. Rick Ross - Party Heart [Video]

After releasing, his mixtape "Savage journey to the American Dream"  on the 30th of March, the other bearded member of the MMG  Empire released visuals for his single "Party Heart." The video features emcee and fellow MMG member Rick Ross curbside, and displays cameos from a host of familiar faces including Miami Heat stars Dwayne Wade and LeBron James. In terms of sound the track is characteristically mellow and low-key, in line with the relaxed flows of Stalley and Ross.

mixtape is available HERE for download


Diggy Simmons vs. J.Cole [Video]

Quite a few people seem to have caught feelings over J.Coles recent success, first the fell off poster guy, Charles Hasmilton, and now Diggy Simmons call out Cole. Success must really be a bitch. Do I find any of these shots substantial enough to warrant a response? In my humble opinion, No. Two nobodies, albeit one is pretty well known, who have yet to make any sort of indelible mark on the game, just reaching .

Apparently this is a rebuttal to J. Cole’s slight jab at Diggy on Grew Up Fast.

Diggy checked into 99.1 KGGI to speak on his recently leaked J. Cole diss record implying that he simply did it to stand up for his sister after what Cole had rapped on 2010′s Purple Rain. Diggy also confirmed that the track was recorded over a year ago.This is why I hate Light skinned blacks.


Bar Rafaeli playing tennis in her underwear [Video]

The long time ex girlfriend of Leo di Caprio, is a hot woman by any mans standards. Having all that time away from Leo, seems to have left her bored, so a spot of tennis was in order to maintain that great body rather than sit and comfort eat all day. Luckily for us Bar, does what Anna Kournikova wouldn't and plays her game in her undies.

Kendrick Lamar - The Recipe ft. Dr. Dre [Audio]

Kendrick Lamar releases the Dr. Dre-featured first single “The Recipe” from his upcoming TDE/Aftermath/Interscope Records debut LP dropping this year. K. Dot and Dr. Dre call into Big Boy’s Neighborhood radio show to introduce the new single and talk about its previous title Women, Weed & Weather.

Nardwuar v Action Bronson [Video]

With the hype from this years SXSW barely settled, we can't forget that it's Nardwuar season as well. With all the Big names that were there, I'm hoping Nard, got to break bread with some some of HipHops old guard.
Him and Action got to chop it up real nicely.


The Game ft. Kendrick Lamar - The City [Video]

I make no secret of the fact that I think Game's musical contributions have been on a steady decline, and it's saddening to think that this is the same guy who gave us the now Classic "The Documentary." This track sees him attempt to come close to the once lofty heights, of his G-Unit days. The only problem is he enlisted Kendrick for the guest spot on this, and whebn Kendrick get's going, it's hard to remeber what preceded him.


Ducati Monster Diesel

Italian neighbors Ducati and Diesel join forces on a special edition motorcycle based on the Monster 1100EVO. Wrapped in olive drab, the rugged, militaristic bike is the end result of a collaboration between Diesel founder Renzo Rosso and the Ducati Design Center.

Common 40th Birthday party [Video]

Common celebrated the big 40 at his 40th birthday bash at Club ONE in Salt Lake City, Utah alongside Kanye West. Here’s a clip of him spitting something off the top during the party. It'll never be a spectacle like a Rozay party, but a Rozay party will never be like an Elton John party. Basically , what I'm trying to say to you kids is that you can't win them all.


Playboy not just a centrefold Ad campaign

That old adage "I read Playboy for the articles." Seems to have provided inspiration for Playboy South Africas ad campaign. Young & Rubicam designed some clever new ads for Playboy South Africa, which quite ingeniously inform readers that the magazine is more than just nekkid women.


Tyga ft. Lil Wayne - Faded [Video]

Tyga brought on Lil Wayne for “Faded” — Tyga’s next big single. In this heavily-censored video debut for “Faded,” the two find themselves in big head mode in an alternate dimension. Is it a metaphor for their larger-than-life personas, or just the video’s artistic direction as seen by director Collin Tilley?


Katy Perry botches up Ni**as in Paris [Video]

I don't know where to begin, I know I'll start with criticising the whole thought process behind attempting to do this track. Firstly Katy you're white I'm pretty sure the word Ni**a is still a landmine of shit for your kind. Your manager should have not "let you get in your zone," with this one. A track this effusive, has lead many to do a cover. Jay and Ye did it best though. Secondly you don't have that black pass, which would allow you to throw the N word around, sure you dated Travis, from Gym Class, but let's face it he's about as black as the line up at the finals for swimming at the Olympics. You just plain had no right to do this. Then I get to the musical stylings, not to get all Simon Cowell on you but this just plain sucks balls. Please leave this beat to the Ni**as. I would however like to point out that, If Katy needs a "black pass card" she can get in contact with me. Theres a bunch of lining up to get into you, before we let you into our world.

Edward Penishands: a porn Parody [Video]

Everybody loves a porn that plays on the name of some of the biggest blockbusters has to offer. The only problem is sometimes a really good parody, makes it difficult to masturbate to, what with all that laughing.

A door-to-door dildo saleswoman stumbles across Edward, and upon discovering the...advantages of his hand-substitutes, brings him home, where he falls in love with her daughter.
Uptop is a pornless clip of some of the sceneds in the movie. Penishands it promises and Penishands you will get.


Cape Town named most alcoholic city in South Africa

A city drowning
Fuck it! I give up week in and week out my friends do their bit to increase the Johannesburgs overall consumption. It seems our efforts just were'nt enough. We can't do it alone people. I view this asa loss and an insult, putting our livers on the line here, to not even warrnt a worthy mention? I mean what's wrong with you JHB, we got the money, the population, the actual mixed vibe?! Our failure stings deep.

The Department of Health has released the results of a study completed earlier this year that paints a grim picture of both Cape Town and the Western Cape”s rampant use and abuse of alcohol. Long story short, the study concludes that Cape Town is South Africa’s drunkest city, and the Western Cape its booziest province. Er, get that city a Bells?

Some of the more shocking statistics include:

•50% of the city’s population drink regularly.
•One third of the city’s population abuse alcohol regularly.
•Approximately 66% of school pupils in the Western Cape (Grades 8 to 10) drink alcohol.
•One quarter of that 66% admit to binge drinking.
These results are part of the PR drive the Department is undertaking to promote a documentary series it made last year called “Booza TV” which takes a look at drinking culture in South Africa. They are also liaising with community organisations in order to plan campaigns to curb the rampant abuse of alcohol in the Western Cape through awareness-raising and advocacy.

The report points to a number of factors that are responsible for the massive use of alcohol in the city and the province, including the relative ease with which alcohol can be acquired, the high stress levels and violence associated with life in certain sectors, as well as the widespread marketing of alcohol.


Prometheus [Trailer]

From Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof(Lost). In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Charlize Theron, and Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus is due in theaters June 8th.


Rick Ross full set at SXSW [Video]

The festival that use to just showcase all the new talent in the Hip Hop scene, seems to have been favoured by Hip Hop's heavyweights this year. Only last year this festival's roster read like a XXL Freshmen cover, oh what a difference a year makes, Jay Z, Kanye West, Rick Ross, Slaughterhouse/Eminem and Raekwon to name a few. Anyway uptop is Rozay's full performance. Enjoy


Kendrick Lamar previews new Neptunes Produced Track [Video]

Kendrick Lamar finally puts an audio preview to (what seems to be) this studio session as he brings out Buddy in Austin to help him perform The Neptunes-produced cut entitled Staircases. I'm sure the proper quality audio is close to being released.

The Pope commissions scent that only he can wear

"You didn't expect me to walk around smelling like this stuff , did you?"

(MSNBC) - At 84, Pope Benedict XVI has proven to be a spiffy dresser. He wears cherry red loafers that landed him in the pages of Esquire magazine as the “accessorizer of the year,” he’s been spotted wearing sunglasses by Gucci and been outfitted by the Italian fashion house, Belstaff. Now, according to the Guardian, il Papa has commissioned his own brand of eau de cologne, a scent that only he may wear. The fragrance is a combination of lime tree, verbena and grass and was created by Silvana Casoli, an Italian nose, as perfume makers are called, who has created scents for Sarah Jessica Parker, Katy Perry, Madonna and Sting

Had no idea he was also known as the iL Papa, that's the sort of name that lives in the rap game.(I wonder who the Popes hottest MC's are). Is this what the Papacy has been reduced to, just trying to outswag your predecessor? John Paul II rode the popemobile, Now Benedict XVI, is hittin us with red loafers and signature scents. Maybe I should have payed more attention at Sunday School. Queues, Notorious B.I.G - Big Poppa on the playlist.


My Strange Addiction - Woman who drinks piss [Video]

So she suffers from cancer , and thinks her urine has a healing effect. she drinks it from a glass, her eyes, her nose, washes her teeth with it, ages some and rubs it on her skin. I heard yesterday that Bear Grylls show was cancelled coause of contractual issues, and all he ever did was drink piss. So, I reckon the Discovery channel has just found his replacement. If any friend of mine put me on T.V to confess they'd been drinking piss for 4 years, I think it's safe to assume the friendship ends there.Definately wouldn't drink the Apple juice at your house.

How to Poach Eggs perfectly

Breakfast is the most Important meal of the day and no matter how good Nutella on toast tastes, you got get something a little more substantial in you every now and then. I'm a fan of the egg, all sorts of breakfatsy goodness is house within that shell, and they are pretty versatile, scrambled, sunny side up, soft boiled, over easy eggs are pretty simple to prepare the hardcore amongst us even poach them. Try as Imight I always fuck the poachinmg process up, and end up with something that belongs in the bin.

Marc Matsumoto over on Fresh Tastes shares this great step by step guide/recipe on cooking the perfect poached egg. As he mentions, the difficulty is in reducing the amount of egg white that mixes with the water to make a poached egg. Matsumoto recommends four techniques and additions to help get that poached egg just “perfect” – egg white and all. Process after the jump...

Katy Perry gets her boobs moulded

The Lo Head Movement [Video]

A subculture I didn't know had a name up until recently, deriving it's name from Polo by Ralph Lauren. New Yorkcentric in origin, but slowly engulfing other parts of the globe. A movement that has deep levels of devotion, with some of the people refusing to wear anything other than Polo. From members of the Wu Tang Clan to Action Bronson, to 88-Keys. 88-Keys claims to have worn nothing but Ralph Lauren since 1993. I can't imagine being decked out in one label head to toe, and I'm glad we have sunnier climes here in S.A, so we don't have to swateh ourselves in layers of vintage Ralph Lauren. Each to their own I suppose.

Battleship [Trailer]

Like I said in an earlier post, Oscar season goes then all the blockbusters come out en masse. Battleship is one that  the kids will line up to see, got that Transformers vibe to it, and us adults can see it, and claim we only went to see Rihanna. It also stars Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard and Brooklyn Decker. For a movieconceptualised from a board game, they sure as hell seem to have fleshed it out, and by flesh I mean boobs.

Die Antwoord turn down Lady Gaga [Video]

Depending on which side of the Gaga fence you stand on this is good news or totally disrespectful. Me personally, "I don't give a shit."  Die Antwoord has expanded, because they told MTV News Canada that they turned down Lady GaGa and refused to open for her.

"Weird shit's been happening, like fucking Lady Gaga asked us to tour with her and we're like, 'No, don't worry about it.'
Our stuff is like fucking hardcore like solid heavyweight! We want it to be like a secret mind-fuck! People are like what the fuck is this the first time they hear it. We like making pop music, but we like making hardcore music at the same time, mixing them, but they've got, like, soul. It's not like weak, superficial shit. You know?"
Man, I'd sell out quicker, than a whore in a goldmine.

Adidas adiPure Adapt

Made to harness the body’s natural mechanics, this technologically-advanced design offers minimal cushioning between the wearer and the ground, forcing your legs and feet to experience the subtle changes in impact. This in turn will influence the wearer to run on his or her mid or fore-foot, providing a more natural run. A simple yet ingenious vision, the adiPure Adapt is further constructed from the finest materials available, producing a form-fitting mold that weighs in at 4.5 ounces, making it lighter than even Nike’s recently revealed FlyKnit.No word yet on when these gems will hit our shores.

How to handle a Shart [Video]

It's a monday, a day hated the world over because, it got in the way of your nice times this weekend. The wise and strong of will power, know not to touch a drop of booze on Sunday. Sunday booze tastes too damn good, one beer can easily turn into 24, which is a surefire way to make monday a whole lot more unbearable. You wake up feeling like shit, and have to take one of those alcohol induced shits, to clear your stomach. Every once in a while that stomach clearing shit is cut short coz you opverslept and need to get to work on time. Then at work you try break out a silent fart, only to find it wasn't a fart. That is what is known as a shart. You're now stuck at work, what do you do? Watch vid above to help you deal with it.

P.S. I would have loved to receive the casting call for this particular vid.


Jay Z and Kanye's Otis Maybach sold at auction

Look, in my world of finacial burden this purchase makes no sense to me, but Jay and Yeezy are "Cray." Jay-Z and Kanye West’s chopped up “Otis” Maybach would be auctioned off has culminated today with the news that the car has fetched $60,000 last week as a part of the New York Contemporary Art Evening. The car, which normally is priced at $300,000 – $350,000, sold to its winning bidder in just under five minutes. Despite the video footage of the Watch the Throne duo cruising in it, the Maybach was sold as a work of art as opposed to an operational vehicle. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Save the Children’s efforts to feed and support children in Africa.

Atleast he didn't have to pay list price.You know me I'm all about the pennies.


Yasin Bey - Sunshine Screwface prod. by J.Dilla [Video]

I have no idea what it was aboyut the game that necessitated the name change. It's a move that I'd expect form the more commercial P.Diddy, and not from the conscious movement elder statesmen. However a good verse by any other name still sounds as sweet.

Yasiin Bey recently touched down in Paris to promote his upcoming show with Talib Kweli at La Bataclan on March 9. As previously reported, the acclaimed rapper paid a a visit to Nova radio during his stay in the French capital and laced the airwaves with some impressive wordplay while clutching his patented red Unidyne microphone in doing so. It also should be noted the beat belongs to the late great J-Dilla, peep above and see how it stacks up to his recent live versions of this record.


Ferrari F12 Berlinetta [Video]

The successor to the 599, and the title of fastest production Ferrari available, gets a little video action. Sounds amazing, looks great in motion. Featuring a 6.2-liter (6262cc) 65 degree naturally-aspirated V12 engine delivering 740 HP (544 kW / 730 bhp), which translates to a specific output of 118 HP/liter, the Berlinetta has been described as “the most powerful and high-performance Ferrari road car ever launched.”


The BE Light

The BE Light can be folded down flat to a minimum height of 1.8 cm! And it can be fully extended to a height of 33.4 cm, and an angle of up to 135 degrees. It’s made out of aluminum and LEDs. In this country of tenders, crooked politics, and affirmitive action , oops I meant BEE, it's only fitting that this light the way in your broad based economiclly enlightened office.

2013 Mercedes Benz A Class

Looks as though Merc is finally going to ditch it's Mommy city roundabout look for something a little more traditional in the hatchback mould. This new look will definately see more men buying the smaller Benz, hell even aspire to own one. It has all the rigjht looks to make the right moves in a segment run by Audi, BMW, and Volkswagen. the sporty five-door hatch will be available in 1.6 (81 kw) or 2.0 liter (157 kw) petrol engines alongside diesel options which include a 2.2 liter, 127 kilowatt engine. Underneath the aggressively lined metal is an interior that is just as sporty and features the option to fully integrate the iPhone and eventually other smartphones into the car's infotainment system. It also can be equipped with a variety of features from its stablemates including Distronic Plus, Adaptive Highbeam Assist, Blind Spot Assist, and Active Parking Assist. Wonder if an AMG version is in the works.


Beethoven as performed by a set of ass cheeks

I wonder how Ludwig would react to seeing this? Probably turning in his grave to better accomodate his erection. I personally like the ass on display, but I'd sort of walk away feeilng short changed if she didn't turn round and play the violin on her vagina.


Lil Wayne on Jimmy Kimmel [Videos]

Apparently, Lil’ Wayne was having too much fun in his animal print pants at his free show at the Hollywood & Highland Center yesterday and forgot about his scheduled appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. Cleverly, Kimmel ad libbed the script and pulled a random guy from the audience to act like Weezy.

Miss Reef Ass awards 2012

Look, I'm not one to objectify women, but in the same breath I won't deny the true nature of my beast. dangle a carrot in front of this donkey(ass in this case) and the donkey will do your bidding. Now Reef, makers of fine beach apparelwhere I have concentrated all my perving efforts. They have the Colita Internacional pagaent annually. For those not in the know colita means little tail (a euphemism if ever I saw one) where some of the tightest roundest asses gather round and strut their stuff on stage, much to the pleasure of guys in the crowd and those keeping tabs over the internet. To be honest I couldn't pick a single winner out of this line up.
Can't wait till the official footage is available.


Neil Barrett Men's Bi-Fold Wallet

It's not only about how much money you got, where that money springs from speaks volumes. A good billfold wallet should be a standard in every mans arsenal. I've never been one for a card case no matter how titanium, black or uranium it's contents might be. I like Neil Barrett's Bi-Fold Wallet has ample room for all your cards and cash and has a leather cord that secures your wallet just like you would a manila envelope. Classy.Buy yours here.


Rick Ross All Star 2012 Weekend [Video]

All Star Weekend, is a big thing in the States, women want to knab themselves a baller, guys want to show that they are baller status. It's hard to think of a gathering of the sort, where you get to rub shoulders with star athletes, actors, musicians and social whores.

Rick Ross had his Dre Films outfits tail him all weekend, to chronicle the weekend from his perspective, from co -hosting a party with Amber Rose on Friday all the way to the last performance on Sunday. Personally I dig the videos where you get to peak behind the curtain, and see what it takes to make the machine grind.


Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

In a world where car manufacturers are being forced to think greener and make smaleer engines. Most car manufacturers did what was asked of them, but nanaged to squeeze everything out those small blocks.Your top tier producers however throw caution to the wind and keep things heavy. Ferrari wasn't going to let Lambo run riot with it's V12 Aventador, so naturally their response was to produce their most powerful car yet to date.

Ferrari has finally revealed first images and details of their 599 successor officially named the F12 Berlinetta. Featuring a 6.2-liter (6262cc) 65 degree naturally-aspirated V12 engine delivering 740 HP (544 kW / 730 bhp), which translates to a specific output of 118 HP/liter, the Berlinetta has been described as “the most powerful and high-performance Ferrari road car ever launched.” For performance, the monster of the road accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.5 seconds. Amongst the other new amenities is the F1 dual-clutch unit, Rosso Berlinetta three-stage finish, and an all-new aluminum spaceframe chassis and bodyshell. The result is a a very compact car with a lower center of gravity that is further back in the chassis. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta officially makes its debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6.

Italian Barmaid told to stop dressing sexy

I've got my local haunt, and although the the atmosphere is immeasurably awesome, I will concede that the people behind the bar(Lord bless their souls) could use a little sprucing up. It seems that the Italians don't appreciate a little skin. Haters gon' Hate.

Daily Mail – After eight years running a bar, Laura Maggi suddenly found men beating a path to her door. Not for the quality of her coffee and aperitifs, but because she had started appearing for work in highly revealing outfits. Hundreds of male customers flocked there day and night, leaving their cars double parked in the surrounding streets. Congestion became such a problem that the lady mayor announced she was considering an emergency bylaw to limit traffic in the area. Now women in the small northern Italian town of Bagnolo Mella have declared Le Cafe out of bounds to their menfolk – and 34-year-old Miss Maggi has become a national celebrity. Yesterday she was a guest on the Italian equivalent of This Morning and said: ‘I don’t see what the problem is – it’s just a bit of harmless fun. ‘If the guys come here what can I do? ‘I know I have upset the women but that’s not my problem. ‘It’s not my fault if guys want to come and have a drink in my bar.’ Bagnolo’s mayor Cristina Almici said: ‘We have received several complaints from women about the bar and we are looking at what we can do with regard to public order. ‘There has been a huge influx of traffic into the town since the news of Laura started to spread and this has led to incidents of bad parking and some minor acts of vandalism.

The Mayor Hater, who's banned he husband from the bar

BMW M135i Turbo Concept

There'll be no objective writing from me when it comes to BMW, it's gonna be biased all the way.Decked out in classic BMW  M Livery, this hatch adds some balls to the 1 series hatch.

Titled the M135i, BMW created a concept that entwines a twin-turbo and pure gasoline-powered inline six cylinder engine to a newly developed 3-door hatchback body style. Designers claim the shape provides “a more dynamic and elongated appearance” complemented by a custom M-designed suspension stance, wide flared wheel arches, 18-inch Motorsport division exclusive wheels, and aggressive front air intake design. No word on a release date or availability as of yet.

DMX Breakfast Club Interview [Video]

DMX, has never been one to bite his tongue, it's a trait that, can be appreciated in todays world of ambivelence, sub tweets and subliminal shot taking. He steps in with the Breakfast club, for a rather lenghty pow - wow. I could just put up excerpts from the interview, but I feel it's done a lot more justice when viewed in full, also covering my ass, so as not to put anything out of context.

He touches on issues with Def Jam/Jay Z, the same issues we've heard from a countless other Def Jam dropouts. His thoughts on a few of todays most poular artists, namely Rick Ross, Drake and J.Cole. He says it so straight that it make Commons "sweet," look like a veiled diss. I would be remiss not to comment on X's twitchy demeanour. I'll be listening to the music to see if he can get back to those old heights.This rap shit is tough to crack without some friends in your corner, especially when you trying to make a comeback.


Tyga - Rack City Remix [Video]

Just gonna keep it simple, and I know a friend of mine is gonna be happy to hear this.Face it bro, you love Tyga's 'Rack City'. What's better than 'Rack City'? How about a 'Rack City' remix with Wale, Meek Mill, Fabolous, T.I. and Young Jeezy. Go ahead and watch.


Nike Basketball: Milano Kalibro Kobe [Video]

The machine that is Nikey's marketing department, does it again.
Enzo G. Castellari, cult Italian director of ’70s exploitation movies, introduces us to a hidden treasure taken from his filmography, Milano Kalibro Kobe. The short movie, discovered in the basement of the director’s house, tells the story of the epic struggle between law enforcement and a gang of ruthless thieves, and how the battle between good and evil takes a turn for the better thanks to the intervention of Black Mamba – international man of action and incredible baller. Key Italian athletes play prominent in this classic, with appearances by Alberto Aquilani, Marco Belinelli, Gennaro Gattuso, Claudio Marchisio, Marco Materazzi and Giampaolo Pazzini.


Odd Futre gets a show on Adult Swim (Trailer)

A lot of you don't even like the Odd futurist movement. Many of you praying for their demise or for them to slip into obscurity. Guess, they got a little more stamina than most of you expected, leveraging off the internet buzz to extend their 15 minutes a little longer.

 Odd Future’s Adult Swim TV show, Loiter Squad, finds the crew in a green room being completely consumed by cheeses of all sorts. With seemingly full creative control, one can only dream what OFWGKTA has thought up for their “lightly” scripted series.  To quote one of my favourite scenes in  Gladiator, The mob is fickle, brother. He'll be forgotten in a month. This looks like a black version of Jackass..


Woody Allen is just too busy for the Oscars

You get to the level of success and the age where everything oyu xchased just doen't seem as illustrious as it used to. Or, you've done this enouigh times to know that the show will go on without you. Woody Allen, I don't know what the case was for you, but I always like my octogenerians, a little on the eccentric side a la Denny Crane.

Letty Aronson, producer of Midnight in Paris and Woody Allen‘s sister, said she hadn’t talked to the filmmaker but was “pretty sure” he knew he won for best original screenplay.
“He was saying that the NBA All-Star Game was on at the same time [as the Oscars] so he might have to turn the channel,” Aronson said. “But I bet [wife] Soon Yi told him he won.” [THR]

Teacher accidentally posts dick picture on facebook wall

NY Daily NewsA decorated high school football coach in Maine was forced to resign on Monday after he mistakenly posted a nude photo of himself on Facebook and a local parent spotted it, according to a local report. Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School coach Paul Withee said he didn’t realize the racy shot, which was meant as a private message to one person, was posted publicly until a half hour after he put it up last week, Maine’s Sun Journal newspaper reported. He immediately pulled the photo down — but not before an Oxford Hills parent spotted it. The unidentified parent complained to school officials on Feb. 7. “I’m embarrassed, I’m ashamed, I’m humiliated,” Withee, 51, told the Sun Journal. “I’ve never done anything like this before and I never will again,” he said. School officials said that Withee was not friends with any Oxford Hills students on Facebook, and they are pretty sure the parent was the only one who saw the photo. Withee was named the varsity football coach at Oxford Hills in March after spending 19 years at Foxcroft Academy, a private school where he won three state championships and seven class championships. He also taught math and science at Oxford Hills Middle School. School Superintendent Rick Colpitts called the nude photo leak a mistake. “There was never any malicious intent. The photo was never intended for the public,” Colpitts told the Sun Journal. “He tried to correct it. I feel badly for him. I wish him well.” Withee is not expected to face criminal charges.


Ken Jeong for Vice and Projet X: Party Legends [Video]

Before Ken Jeong jumped naked from a car trunk onto the neck of Bradley Cooper and into the hearts of The Hangover audiences worldwide, he was actually a practicing physician with a doctorate from Duke University. But between balancing all that studying and his burgeoning acting career, he still found time to party. In this episode of Party Legends from VICE and Project X, Jeong recounts the tale of his own bachelor party when he and his admittedly socially awkward friends took to a Las Vegas strip club for lap dances and ended up getting a little more than they bargained for.

Open letter explaining why Rolling Papers wasn't his best work from Wiz Khalifa

A day after appearing at the Grammy's Wiz khalifa, let loose with a long diatribe in the form of an open letter to his fans. I'm going to hazzard a gues here and say that the Grammy's were an eye opener for him and he just ahd to vent. The Taylor Gang general thanked his fans for their continued support, breaking down his journey up to this point. In the blog post he also spoke out on recent criticism regarding his fashion choices lately stating “I always try to inspire my fans to be different.” He also Expressed excitement for the upcoming Taylor Allderdice mixtape and his own sophomore album, O.N.I.F.C., Wiz took time to reflect back on last year’s Rolling Papers admitting it wasn’t creatively his best work.

Adele on 60 Minutes [Video]

Having swept everything up at the Grammy Awards, and performing for the first time since her throat surgery. 60 minutes sat down with Adele, prior to the Grammy Awards. I truely believe Adele is going down as one of the best musicians this generation has ever seen. With her album 21 having sold in excess of 18 million copies worldwide, and having occupied the top spot on the Billboard music chart for the longets period since any album released since 1993.  It's pretty obvious that we're witnessing something  special here.

In this interview she touhes on the affects of fame, her surgery, her musical process, and a bit on her personal life. In an industry that's all about image it's pretty refreshing to see an artist who has no gimmicks and just gives her all, and makes it seem so effortless. Your favourite artist sites her as inspiration. Vid of her Grammy performance after the jump..

Everytime Aaron Ramsay Scores someone famous dies

The Harbinger of Death

Haha, as a Gunner myself, I find this kind of funny. His boot is the Angel of death?! Wonder if this will mess with his head?

The Sun – FOOTBALL star Aaron Ramsey was being bizarrely linked to Whitney Houston’s death by fans last night after a series of odd coincidences. Every time the Arsenal midfielder scores, a famous figure dies. Whitney was the fourth in under a year. Her body was found hours after Ramsey, 21, netted during the Premier League game against Sunderland on Saturday. The coincidences began last May when Ramsey scored against Man United. Next day al-Qaeda terror leader Osama Bin Laden was killed. In October he scored against Spurs, three days before Apple boss Steve Jobs died. Later that month he scored against Marseille in the Champions League. Next day Libyan tyrant Colonel Gaddafi was shot. One fan wrote on a forum: “I’m worried things will get out of control when he scores more.”


Riff Raff x Action Bronson - Bird on a Wire [Video]

Two, guys who are polar opposites on one track. No clue how this collaboration canme about, the only thing they have in commoon is their skin colour, and that was never a basis to collab. We've been seeing a lot of these unexpected collaborations Tyler and Game, Tyler and Pusha, and so far they seem to create track that are worthy of listening to. Action comes wiht that hard hitting NY flow, concise and focused, whlile Rif Raff , who is Soldier Boy's Lieutenant, who is mostly known for spitting  a whloe lot of  ignorance, laces his boots up and goes at it too. Over this atmospheric Harry Fraud beat, I can't fault the end result.


Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Tyler the Creator in Studio

Kanye West met up with Odd Future’s Frank Ocean and Tyler, the Creator while down under in Australia.

Rick Ross x Drake x French Montanna - Stay Schemin [Video]

The infectious track off Rich Forever finalLy gets the visual treatment. Must admit Rick is grinding haard like an unsigned mixtape rapper, how many videos has he shot for this Rich Forever mixtape? Hunger is a good look on him.


Dog bites reporter in the face [Video]

Sometimes, I feel like I should set up a hotline, where people with shi shitty track record of making decisions should call me, and i dole out advise that will see them through whatever situation they're in, something like this."Hi, what's that you say, he's not your dog, first time in his space you say? Ooooh lady, I don't think that's such a great idea. Look, I understand his owner will have him on a lead, but it's all about personal space and boundaries in the animal kingdom. Oh, your great granfather was Dr. Doolittle? Lady this isn't going to end well!"


Rolex Hillary Tenzing Edition Explorer set

Paying homage to the family of Hillary and Tenzing, two of the greatest mountain explorer lineages to date, the latest custom-designed Rolex Hillary Tenzing Edition Explorer Set sees its full unveiling today. Commissioned at the hand of Philipp Stahl, the set comes with three specially done 36mm, 39mm and 42mm Rolex Explorer watches, as well as a mix of accompanying accessories, including a silver mountaineering pin, a limited HTE edition copy of Everest by the late George Band, as well as an original leather-bound 1953 expedition route to Everest. Most notable from the highly inclusive package is an opportunity to join Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay on a private trek to Everest Basecamp in May 2012.

I could do without all the physical activity though.


2013 BMW M6 Coupe

This week BMW announced the next generation of their flagship road-going sports car, the M6. Known to true fans as the “sportier M5,” the M6 keeps the engine, transmission, and electronic gadgetry specifications of its four-door brother but houses everything in a stylish and function two-door configuration, which keeps in tradition to the original M 635 CSi from the mid-1970′s. The 2013 model will arrive first as a convertible followed by the coupe, both with a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 powerhouse that outputs 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque to the pavement through their massive 19-inch alloy wheels and electronic “Active-M” limited-slip differentials. Transmission specs as of now list a seven-speed dual-clutch sequential manual gearbox, with a fully manual configuration in consideration for a later release. Sales of the new model will begin sometime this June. It's looking like the old M6 went to the spa and trimmed a lot of excess weight off.


Lil Wayne takes shots at Jay Z and Kanye Again [Video]

With 17 ( Lil Wayne 5, Drake 4, Nicki Minaj 4, Busta Rhymes 2, DJ Khaled) Grammy nominations in total the YMCMB should have had a lot to celebrate  at their pre Grammy award show party.  Instead, Weezy used the time to make several announcements. With the mic in his hand, Wayne asked for a moment of silence in Whitney’s honor and then proceeded to announce that Christina Milian was now officially YMCMB. In  almost in the same breath, he fired off at Jay-Z and Kanye West (3:45 mark).

“I met a red-bone, I took the girl home/I asked her what she wanna watch, she said, ‘surely not The Throne’”

I would like to see these two go at it lyrically. "You know,  for shits and giggles."

Class and all aside, they could have sold those pics top some publication and donated the money to the needy(me).

The Bourne Legacy Trailer [Video]

Matt Damon may not be reprising his titular role as Jason Bourne, but his legacy as the U.S. government operative gone rogue lives on in The Bourne Legacy. Neither a reboot, nor a prequel, The Bourne Legacy explores the original canon story of a new hero played by Jeremy Renner (of Hurt Locker fame), as penned and directed by franchise mastermind Tony Gilroy. Apparently the Treadstone Project that Damon spent three wildly successful movies unmasking, was only the “tip of the iceberg,” leaving room for a fresh interpretation of the storyline by Renner’s character. Also new to the franchise are Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton, while ‘Bourne’ veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, and David Strathairn will be reprising their respective roles.


Mason Martin Margiela Pixelated Sneaker

After you watch a video form Kanye West and Jay Z, the best at this luxury rap shit. You'll have to forgive me for reaching a little out of my affordability bracket.

Now available at Por Vocação is this new twist on Maison Martin Margiela’s Replica sneaker (itself a riff on the classic Adidas Samba). We definitely like what’s going on here: woven canvas fabric with lots of pixel squares washing over the toe, giving the impression that you’ve kicked in a flatscreen and pulled back digital remnants. Bonus: you can wear these without laces, thanks to some stabilizing straps on the tongue.
