Nike Air Force 1 Low Premium Denim 2011

Copped! That all....

Tom Hanks Addresses the Yale Class of 2011 (Video)

Incredibly written and spoke. He sort of loses it and gets it back toward the end. Still pretty awesome.

PigeonsandPlanes Interview @LowkeyUHTN of YouHeardThatNew

Blogs on top of blogs on top of blogs on top of blogs. We fucks with Low. We have for a while now. He was one of the first to post T.Shirt music when everybody else was too pussy. He was one of the first to post music period actually, which he'll tell you about down below. He shares my affinity for steak and eggs, he's good on the mic at parties, and he lives the life he writes about. Fuck with him. And fuck with for being so good at what they do, too.

*Shout to Inf on the left there. I see you drunk muhhfuckas.

*New Video* Perfectionist - Meek Mill x Rick Ross

Favorite track off the SelfMade album. Well fined in my opinion. Gangster shit. I believe it premiered on Worldstar but I can't fuck with their player anymore so I waited.

Hot Mop Films x URNEWYORK In Israel (Part 4) "Murality 3: The Colors of Hebron"

This is it for my brothers in Israel making the otherwise harsh conditions come alive with jumping color. If I'm not mistaken they come home in the next two days. I haven't talked to any of them personally in the last three weeks, save for these visual diaries. It'll be interesting to hear first hand of how the trip might've changed their perspective a little bit. Big guns and graffiti, what a life we lead.

See each of the videos shot by Dred (HotMop Films) here at Artists4Israel.

*New Music* How High - J.Cole

Feeling this. Nice little vibe to it. No one knows where it came from or what project it's off of.

Download How High - J.Cole (NR link)

I checked out the Ustream Cole recently did where he says the first official single is coming this week, the album is done, Jay's on it, shit's gonna be crazy. Fucking dope.

Vizio Candle Ashtray

Everybody needs a good ashtray in their home. I prefer blunt ashes and dutch guts over cigarette butts but to each it's own. The part candle and part ashtray is made out of paraffin wax material, with a wick that burns in the center of the tray. The wax melts and drowns not only the ashes, but also the odor. They come in a bunch of colors, too, but I like this one best.

Designed by Italian studio Flussocreativo, more at designboom.

*New Video* Out My Mind Just In Time - Erykah Badu

Beautiful. Directed by Badu herself, with some help from friends at Creative Control.

RapUp's 10 Questions With Jadakiss

My homegirl Ms. Cline over at RapUp got to sit with Jada Jada to ask him a bunch of questions I don't think we ever heard the Yonkers nigga answer before. Truly rousing stuff.

Everyone knows you as Jadakiss the rapper. What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I just like chillin’, I like reading. I read all kinds of books. Nothing is out of the range. I like shopping for sneakers. I like collecting watches. I just bought a black Jacob; a whole black set actually—a watch, a chain, and a bracelet. I like socks too. I like all kinds of freaky socks—Polo, argyle, the George Jeffersons. I don’t just do the regular white joints. I don’t like under the ankle socks either.

Rick Ross x Andy Samberg Cover Complex Magazine June/July 2011

Rozzzzzaaaayyyyyyy. You can always tell when Complex is about to kill the game with something else because the brass starts talking that shit. I love it. Here they do that thing where they sit two characters from different worlds together and ask them funny stuff. Read the whole thing here or come to my house in a few days and feel it in your hands.

Andy: Rick, did you ever see the biopic on Don King? My favorite line from that is when he’s in the bathroom talking to a dude while he’s taking a piss and the guy asks, “Hey Don, aren’t you going to wash your hands?” and he’s like, “Shit, I wash my hands before I touch my dick!”
Ross: [Laughs.] That’s true, though.

Bambi Northwood-Blyth For Harper’s Bazaar (Australia)

Beautiful group of very sexy, very simple photos in front of Lachlan Bailey’s lens. Something about the image up top is just perfect to me. Studio goodness. Few more here.

*New Video* Acura Integurl - Frank Ocean

Interesting visuals for a pretty record left off of Ocean's breakthrough, Nostalgia, Ultra. Not sure if you heard but Def Jam doesn't want to lose another cent from this kid, so they decided to re-release the album to retail on July 26th. Hopefully we get some new bonus cuts on it or something.

*New Music* Return Of Simba (Freestyle) - J. Cole

You might be more into this than we were but Cole is definitely fucking spitting.

BMW 328 Hommage

Maybe one of the most beautiful sport cars I've ever seen. BMW pays tribute to the legendary 328, turning 75 years young in 2011. They take part in the Mille Miglia race this year and are about to reveal their brand-new BMW 328 Hommage, in celebration of the oldtimer. Shit is, fucking ridiculous.

Lady Gaga Performs "Judas" On SNL Finale w/ Bonus: Justin Timberlake "In A 3 Way"

Feeling this performance. Beautiful intro and such. If the whole show becomes available in some workable quality I'll try and get it up for you. I heard it was a good one. For now it's just some select stuff I find. Shout to Yardie.

*Bonus* Hahahahahaaaa, classic.

Hot Mop Films x URNEWYORK In Israel

The kid Dred's in Israel with the URNEWYORK team for the next couple weeks and will be bringing us an insider look into the daily going ons. This is just the first episode but it has such a nice feel to it. Ski with the 1997 shirt on, the beach days etc. Maybe you care, maybe you don't but this is family across the world we're talking about, haha. Walk with us.

I haven't got a chance to listen to it yet so don't hold me to anything quite yet but maybe check it out with me and lemme know what you think.

As a thank you to our fans, we're giving away the the six-song Hold Me Down EP - completely free - through our website,

Happy Graduation Day, AMK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My good friend has her big day today in New York and there's a few people I know she wishes could be there with her. It hit me a little while ago and I thought to myself, this girl deserves better than that. So rather than the normal obligatory congratulation post, I got her cool ass sister in Oakland to say a few words from the heart;

My beautiful sister, I can so clearly remember the day you left home for Paris. I cried, not because you were moving on but because I was so wonderfully proud of you. You have so gracefully shown me the many beauty's life has to offer and I am overwhelmed with love and happiness for the person you've grown to be. The bond between us is that of unimaginable love that I hope to be able to bring to you each and every day. I can not tell you how much I look up to you and how much I always have. So today I will cry again, in celebration of the beginning of a new chapter in your life and the many accomplishments you have made along the way.

Love, your little sister

*Huge thank you to Yelena for that. To any and all graduates this year, thank you for sticking to it! Thank you for working diligently and making yourselves walking, shouting examples of the heights you can reach! You make the world a better place. And to Amk, Gift and Sav, I'm proud of you girls. You bitches will run the world.

Rick Ross Visits Cannes, Meets Leo DiCaprio, Races Ferraris, etc

With the amount of vlogs this team puts out I simply can't support every single one of them, although I usually watch. There's something special about this one. I don't know about you but I'm deeply inspired by stuff like this.

*New Music* Drake Jumps On Excellent "Wildfire" Record By SBTRKT & Little Dragon

Super ill verse from Drizzy. New flow and all, that's what the fuck I'm talking about. Great song from beginning to end.

Kate Moss x Terry Richardson In Mango Commercial “The Great Escape”

Two of my favorites run around Paris in a quick clip directed by Terry. I've had a similar idea for a music video for awhile. Very cool.

Jay-Z Secret Show In NYC For Adult Swim (Video)

Hov does his always awesome live show strut in a move that's been reported as his coming out party for a television deal struck with Adult Swim for a new series. Nothing has been confirmed and I'm not in the business of selling rumors so stay with us for an update.

*Two things. Jay cut his hair. His fans know this means a body of work has been completed. Watch The Throne is coming. Also, the beat for the Boondocks Theme? Wow. I need that.

William Yan Previews Saks Fifth Avenue Fall 2011 Men's Collection

Our guy got to preview an outrageous looking collection in a penthouse suite at The Setai Fifth Avenue hotel last week. Jealous isn't the word. Still, if there's anyone we'd like to report on this sort of thing, it's Will Yan. #Respect.

Check out his post here and I'll see you in September, my good sir.

*Official Video* ILLYTAL (Portishead Remix) - The ILLZ

In my opinion one of the strongest visuals we've ever seen from our guy ILLZ, as well as from any unsigned artist all year. Directed masterfully by the talent of Kristopher Rey-Talley. Take notes.

Download ILLZ latest project the, "In Between Video Series" here.

Happy #ThongThursday From Rosa Acosta

For the guys who don't have a girlfriend who lets them take pictures like this. Frankly, it's your fault.

This damn woman kills her timeline with whorish shit all day long. I always said if she puts something of any quality up, I'll support her, haha.

Jon Stewart Goes Head-To-Head w/ Bill O'Reilly, Defends Common Being Invited To The White House

Here's the hot topic you might have been hearing about all day from various sources on your "timeline". In my humble opinion, EVERYBODY has a checkered past in one way or another. I'm not judging ANYBODY for what it says on a piece of paper that they did 10 years, yesterday or even 2 hours ago. While Jon makes some great points, he's being way too politically correct. I guess I get it, and I do appreciate the effort. I'm not gonna play right into the stereotype of rappers hating Bill O'Reilly. He does what he needs to do for ratings and to be the strongest version of himself he can be. God bless him for it. I don't know his heart.

DJ Khaled x Drizzy Drake - Making Of "I'm On One" (Video)

I'm not gonna even front like this shit didn't hype me the fuck up! I need records like this in my life. Like, not for anybody (not true, though) but myself. I need to make a few of these just to prove to myself I can do it. Khaled said he almost had tears in his eyes when he heard it and I feel that nigga.

Christian Louboutin Rollerball Spikes “Black On Black”

Dammit! You know the deal. I like these design-wise but I'd never wear them. Same goes for the brand-new all black. Ye's probably foaming at the mouth. $1,195 - cop here.

Reno Msad Wins Fader Magazine "Gimme The Look" Cover Contest!

Cheers! We featured my man Reno Msad's take on a Big illustration he did for a Fader Magazine contest last week and yesterday we find out he won! Salute! It's not a million dollars in prize money or anything but it's super cool nonetheless and some spotlight on the kid's enormous talent is always welcomed. Head over to Fader and check out what they had to say. Follow the NYC designer on twitter now as he readies a new website and prepares for a hot summer.

Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill & Pill Talk To Billboard, Release "Fitted Cap feat. J.Cole"

Happy for them boys. Ross really got his shit together this year and is building an army. I think we're all a little apprehensive about the music thus far but the grinding, the amount of music, the videos, the shows etc. don't go unnoticed in this game. Sooner or later you're gonna really have to pay attention. In the clip above, Ross talks about being inspired by the legendary teams we've seen come in and run ish.

*Bonus* The MMG Compilation still slated to drop May 24th sprung a leak last night and a bunch of records made it's way out. Here's the standout by far, in my opinion, featuring one of the most comfortable verses from J.Cole to date.

*New Music* Black Sheep - Maffew Ragazino (Produced by Harry Fraud)

Beat's pretty good. All in all I like this kid but he's not really saying much. A lot of slick talk but what are you about? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Sidenote: houses some amazing shoes for the grown up man. Do check them out.

*Official Video* Barry Horowitz - Action Bronson

I know I'm a little late but this shit is awesome. Action Bronson may just be my favorite new guy. Support the kid by copping his new album receiving a lot of deserving attention as of late. The video, directed by Alexander Richter and Tom Gould, is perfect.

Don't get it twisted. Shirt's personal inspiration gallery,, is still on and popping.

*New Music* I'm On One - DJ Khaled feat. Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne

Favorite song of the moment. Posting a photo of the kid up top because he runs this song despite his larger than life cohorts. It's safe to say Drizzy's back.

Katharine Hamnett x Selfridges “Project Ocean” Capsule Collection

I always had a major affinity for big block letters on a crisp white tee. For the launch of Selfridges “Project Ocean” campaign, the special edition T-shirts designer Katharine Hamnett hit it big with in the 1980s have made a striking a comeback raising awareness of the world's oceans. They're priced at $65 USD, and can be copped exclusively through Selfridges.

Really starting to get into this show. SMH @ Cory Gunz though, my bad, gotta say it. Kid's the worst. Shout to my man Inf.

Lexdray Bookbags At Reed Space

Got a chance to check these out before they went up at Reed Space and they really are gorgeous and extremely well made. Another great thing is all the different styles they come in. Nothing like options. I've been feverishly looking for something right but these are a little on the pricey side coming in at a few hundred dollars for each. You get what you pay for and all but I don't know.

This style is called the "Tokyo Bag". Go here for the full collection.

*Official New Video* John - Lil Wayne feat. Rick Ross

Official and all now. Hard ass verses aside I'm not too sure about the visual. On the fence about director Colin Tilley making the worlds in all his videos look apocalyptic. Sue me.

*Lil Wayne MTV Unplugged show? Sounds awesome. Premieres on all MTV networks Sunday, June 12 at 9pm.

William Yan For DC Shoes In, "My Studio Session"

My boy Will got to be a part of DC's new campaign where they called upon seven bloggers to represent and interpret their new Studio shoe in a video and photo essay. This kid is the man, haha, approaching everything with that Will Yan-brand of cool. I'm not such a big fan of the shoes but the durability seems to be pretty unmatched.

Check out more from Will here on his popular blog.

Notorious BIG x Fader Magazine Icon Issue By Designer Reno Msad

Caught wind of a contest Fader put together for designers to hand in their own rendition of a Biggie cover for their annual Icon Issue and immediately put my man Reno Msad on. If the name sounds familiar it's because my guy has worked on numerous projects for myself as well as big money corporate stuff like MTV's Video Music Awards, to name a few. Still, doing things like the art up top is good for the soul and oh my goodness did he kill it.

Do us a favor and head to Fader's Facebook page to "like" Reno's design.

New Wrangler Xplore Edition 2012

Seriously looking into getting a Jeep soon. With the Xplore package, the Wrangler seen up top has upgrades like a new wheel set, MOPAR exhaust, Bilstein shocks and special branding. It's just a solid vehicle and isn't trying to be anything it's not. Autoblog has the deets.

Song is fucking great and video is gorgeous. I'm still on the fence about what the fuck this bitch is actually talking about though. Great writing, code games and whispery, iconic imagery aside, what the hell is this about?

*Just writing the words in the title bar up top felt epic in itself.

Kanye West x M/M (Paris) Silk Scarves Drop Monday

I like these a lot but you gotta dirty these motherfuckers up. Wear  'em with jeans on your ass and good sneakers. Well, depending on your style you'll be able to make it work. Five different designs match the 5 different album cover artworks and each is limited to only 100 pieces. French-made, in silk twill, with hand-lettered borders by M/M (Paris). Available through colette and come Monday morning.

Up top is my favorite but Hypebeast comes through with a few more. Wondering how much one of these things will cost.

Cool ass footage. Great title sequence and all. Happy to see Spitta do that shit and pack them shows fareal.

Jay-Z Covers Delta Airlines' Sky Magazine

Solid little read for anyone who misses talk of Hov lately. I'm sure this has to do with the fact big homie is getting ready to open up a chain of airport lounges. It never stops for the walking, talking empire. Shout to Rapradar for the heads up. Go here.

New Apple iMac 2011

Taking a long, hard look at ole boy. These things are so beautiful in my opinion. Just a solid machine. Specs include quad-core processors, powerful new graphics, groundbreaking high-speed Thunderbolt I/O technology and a new FaceTime® HD camera. Starting at $1,199, head over to Apple for the full rundown.

Page One: Inside The New York Times (Doc Trailer)

Super interesting. Happy there seems to be a surge in smart documentary on the social explosion we're witnessing more each day. I'm definitely the person that believes there's still a place for print that's worth the ink and paper. Page One follows The New York Times through a period of one year as we’re given a behind-the-scenes look into a news giant and all the complexities of running the best. The movie is slated for release on June 24th.

*New Music* Disgusting - J.Cole

Figured I'd share the print work the beauty did in the new campaign photographed by David Sims. There's more here but up top belongs on a bus.

Pitchfork TV Presents Tyler The Creator (Video)

Impressed by Tyler a lot actually. I wish he stopped rapping about bullshit for the sake of getting a rise out of people, and I'd tell him that shit to his face. The stuff that's not bullshit is amazing though.

Mike Tyson Covers Esquire Spain

Great looking cover. Can't get enough of these really well done magazine covers lately. Something tells me print isn't going anywhere. On newsstands now.

The Art In Marfa, Texas "No Place Like Here"

I don't know why I'm so interested in this but I am, I can't front. Anybody that knows me knows I'm die hard New York but watching the life these people have made for themselves is fascinating.

Raekwon Drops A Snippet Of An Old Song Called "Footprints Of Osama"
