Hours after checking out CĂ©line and shaking hands with French paparazzi, Kanye West appeared at Givenchy’s Womenswear Spring/Summer 2014 Paris Fashion Week event on Sunday night. Going with an all-black theme, Kanye and girlfriend Kim Kardashian posed for photos in custom outfits made by Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci.

The couple sat front row alongside actresses Lily Collins, Noomi Rapace, and singer Ciara. Kanye has built quite a working relationship with Tisci, who he’s collaborated with on designs for his Watch the Throne LP with Jay Z, plus a regular wearer of his clothes.

E-40 talks to the ladies looking for a good time in “Episode,” the new single off The Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil 4, 5 & 6.

Part two of Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience is out now and he’s back on his promo game. Even though it doesn’t feel like the buzz is as big as it was during the first time out, one thing is for sure, Timberlake still has the music to back it up. He was next to take the stage to perform his brand spanking new single “TKO,” backed with a band in place of the Timbaland’s signature production.

Vic Mensa, former frontman MC of Kids These Days and current next-to-blow from Chicago, finally releases his much-hyped mixtape, INNANETAPE. We’ve already been warmed up with sunny rock jams like “Lovely Day” and more serious, introspective cuts such as “Time Is Money,” but there’s plenty more to sink your teeth into across the 14-track selection. Ab-Soul, Rockie Fresh, Hit-Boy, BJ The Chicago Kid and long-time friend/fellow SaveMoney member Chance The Rapper all help Vic properly introduce himself to the masses, and potentially set himself up for a breakout year in 2014.

Vic Mensa is currently supporting J. Cole and Wale on their What Dreams May Come Tour. Check out his dates here.
