logic childish gambino

DMV lyricist Logic proves he’s as sharp behind the wheel as he is on the mic as Childish Gambino rides shotgun on his new self-produced single, “Driving Ms. Daisy.” The smooth beat makes it a comfortable cruise, but that doesn’t stop the problems from weighing down on the MCs’ minds, with Donald lamenting his complicated love life: “Relationships look closer in that rear view/Finally slow it down and realize she ain’t nowhere near you.” Logic’s debut album is coming soon via Def Jam.

andre 3000 interview

Although he’s graced stages across the world on OutKast’s 20th anniversary reunion tour for the best part of the year, André 3000 has remained as reclusive as ever — until now. In a rare and revealing interview with New York Times’ Jon Caramanica, the legendary MC opens up about how the Jimi Hendrix biopic helped him out of his depression, that “horrible” Coachella performance and the advice he received from Prince afterwards, and being a “total dad” to his 16-year-old son, Seven.

Naturally, the conversation touches on the topic of new material, and while 3 Stacks sounds painfully reluctant to properly re-enter the rap game, he leaves us with a glimpse — just a glimpse — of hope: “The biggest thing about the tour is momentum. It’s helpful, because it makes me want to do music.”

big sean adidas

Following his previous Pro Model collaborations, adidas Originals has tapped Big Sean to redesign their famous Metro Attitude shoe, as worn by Patrick Ewing and Run-D.M.C. in the ’80s. Drawing inspiration from G.O.O.D. Music’s storied recording sessions out in Hawaii, where My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Hall of Fame were born, the hi-top sneaker juxtaposes black suede with floral-patterned leather, adding hints of gold on the heel. There’s also lyrics from “First Chain” on the insole, allowing Sean to really leave his stamp on the shoe.

The Big Sean x adidas Originals Metro Attitude Hi drops on September 13, retailing for $165 at select adidas Originals retailers, as well as online. Hit the jump for a full photo gallery.

ferguson

Jon Stewart is fresh off vacation and back to work. The first thing on his agenda: Fox News’ terrible coverage of the Mike Brown murder and uproar in Ferguson. Listing off all the outrageous things said by the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity on the network, Jon picked apart the hypocritical views and down-right biased reporting on Fox as he did his best to humanize the true effects of racism on people of color in America. He makes a lot of real points here.
