I’ve always been a sci-fi book and movie junkie…from Dune to 2001: A Space Odessey, from Ender’s Game (the book only) to Mission To Mars. So I couldn’t dream of a better combination than Interstellar‘s science fiction, space travel, the end of the world, and Christopher Nolan, the man who made Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy, and Momento. There’s been so much mystery surrounding the project, even the first trailers gave zero hints about what the movie was even about….but judging from this final trailer, we know Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway travel through space to another planet with an earth-like atmosphere. And it seems that Earth is dire need of a plan B.
That’s about all I can tell…but it’s gorgeous, and I don’t want to know more, and I just want November 7th to get here so I can see it.

Miss Info: Sure we’ve had some great music drops and some unfortunate hip hop romance revelations today…but above all, this is my favorite thing on the internet today. It’s wholly un-rap-related, but if you are an actual human being and not a bot…you’ll also melt into a puddle of feels like I just did.
KLM Airlines has hired a beagle named Sherlock to act as their instant lost-and-found delivery system. After a plane has un-boarded (de-boarded?), the KLM stewardesses check for any forgotten items, and when they find them…they call Sherlock, who takes the item in his KLM utility vest, runs through the airport, and scent-tracks the rightful owner.
Agggh! It’s so adorable I can’t even handle it!

Watch and explode after the jump

20 years ago today The Notorious B.I.G. released one of hip-hop’s most celebrated albums to date. Even with the grisly title, fans from all over the world flocked to Ready to Die. Biggie’s lyrics on this LP made you feel you like were standing right next to B.I.G. on St. James, slangin’ crills.

In his honor, DJ Mister Cee and Funk Flex put together an incredible mix of B.I.G. classics, rare songs, interviews, mixtape cuts and more. All day we’ll be celebrating the life of the true King of New York.

Listen to the mix below and check out HOT97’s Biggie tribute video below…

The Apple iPhone 6 press conference is officially underway, and there’s a ton of details being livestreamed from the Flint Centre for the Performing Arts. Apple’s Tim Cook and the execs have spilled the beans about the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The enlarged smartphone is set be released on Sept 19 with pre orders starting on Sept 16. Stateside, with a two year contract, the iPhone 6 will start at $199 for the 16GB model, then it’s $299 for 32GB and $399 for 64GB of internal storage. Only the iPhone 6 Plus will have the 128GB model.

Miss Info: And what about the much-speculated-about Apple Watch? Well they also previewed that…and while I’m still not sure if I want to wear what looks like a square-faced Ikepod watch from 2011 like some European business traveller (It makes sense they look similar because of shared designer Marc Newsome)…I’m sure as a longtime Apple sucker, I’ll end up wearing one and talking to it on the street like every other tool.

The Apple Watch is a companion to the iPhone, you need both to work together. But the benefits are pretty alluring…

More about the new Apple Watch and the iPhone 6 below…

Revered fashion designer Mark McNairy held his annual runway show at New York Fashion Week over the weekend, tapping one of the most stylish young rappers in the game to help showcase his upcoming collection. With a bounce in his step (literally), G.O.O.D. Music/Grand Hustle rookie Travi$ Scott walked, skipped and even piggybacked his way down the runway while modeling items from McNairy’s Spring/Summer 2015 line, including an all-new lightweight varsity jacket and plaid shorts.

La Flame wasn’t the only hip-hop head in the house; our very own Miss Info sat front row alongside Drake’s newest signee iLoveMakonnen, while NBA stars J.R. Smith and Chris Bosh were also in attendance.

Oh just bring on the aneurysm. The first season of VH1’s ‘Love And Hip Hop Hollywood’ will be infecting us in just a few scant days. While New York seems to have run it’s course, and Atlanta has gone from telenovela hilarity to tiring absurdity…the latest iteration of the exaggerated reality of has-beens and never-wuzes is now based in Los Angeles (Houston and Miami allegedly on the way?) with a cast that includes Ray J, Soulja Boy, Omarion…Lil Fizz and Yung Berg. LIL FIZZ AND YUNG BERG.
Do you need help getting up?

Also, primed to “bring the drama” is Teairra Mari…most notable for having far too many vowels in her first name, as well as being the Jay Z ingenue that did not become Rihanna.

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 1.24.23 PM

Apparently Ray J was dating Teairra (perhaps in preparation for a juicy storyline for this show)…but is now dating his personal assistant. So there will be fights…
As previewed in the video below, along with Teddy Riley’s daughter Nia making a terrible mistake with Soulja Boy….um, TELL ‘EM?

The 2013 BET Awards

Celebs are just like us….in that, when it comes to personal relationships, we’re all a mess. Sure it’s easy to judge Ciara and Future on the unceremonious cancellation of their wedding engagement just 3 months after the birth of their son, Future Jr.. But it’s safe to say there’s been many a relationship ruined by the pressures of new parenthood (even though, technically, it’s not like this is new for Future). And…it’s also pretty often that exes reunite after the thrill of singledom wears off, or maybe you start thinking about your ex moving on without you.

In the case of Ciara and Future…TMZ reports (which likely means they were given a strategically placed tip by the couple’s reps) that the singer and sing-rapper are back together, living in the same house again, in an effort to do what’s best for Baby Future.

OG Maco
(OG Maco)

MissInfo: When I get fed up by all the passive aggressive boasting on twitter, all the crap that gets wrapped up and presented like “creative” writing genius, and all the holier-than-thou post-racially-correct how-dare-you thinkpieces… I find a happy place with a song of anti-social, often ignorant, “aggressive content” (c) 50 Cent. For the past month or so, that song has been “(Bitch) U Guessed It” by Atlanta’s OG Maco. (Prior to that it was Stitches “Brick In Yo Face” which was totally terrible and embarrassing…and of course, young Bobby Shmurda.)

But right now…it’s all about OG Maco. This song sounds like a 2014 Mystikal on a syrup bender with a jumbo side order of demonic possession. Yet another voice out of what I’ve been calling ALT-lanta. Maco released an EP with Key! last month called and now there’s a video!

Watch OG Maco (with an appearance from his boy Rome Fortune) tear the telly up in “U Guessed It”…

Nicki Minaj Anaconda at VMAs 2014
(Nicki Minaj performs “Anaconda” at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards)

Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda” is the pop culture renewable resource that just never runs out. Before it even came out, we got the incredible artwork. Then the even more incredible memes based on the artwork. Then the actual song. Then behind the scenes at the video shoot with Nicki’s patois rant. Then the photos of Drake’s friendzone lapdance. Then the mass web ejacu-reaction to the full “Anaconda” video. Then the VMA performance. And now…we’ve reaching critical mass, because we’re just getting pure silliness.
But this still made me laugh….because I’m basically a 12 year old boy.

Watch the “Anaconda (Fart Remix)” video…
