Future-Kno-The-Meaning-Video

It’s Future in the booth…not the recording booth, the confessional kind in this new clip for “Kno The Meaning,” directed by Vincent Lou. Perhaps Future Hendrix is also praying that no colleagues come out their face saying anything slick about him in this Summer of Wild Flying Beef Patties.

Watch Future’s “Kno The Meaning”…

Chicago’s Dreezy signed with Interscope late last year and this week, the 20-year old rapper/vocalist from the South Side dropped her first major-label EP, Call It What You Want. A follow up to Dreezy’s 2014 Schizo mixtape , the new 5-song EP features collaborations with Teyana Taylor on “How I’m Coming,” as well as K-Camp on “Ain’t Rockin’ With You,” Unlike the pure drill sound of other members of Chicago’s new gen of rappers (both male, and female, i.e. Katie Got Bands), Dreezy is aiming for a shared space of coquette lady raps and radio-friendly R&B melodies…and the results are likeable and promising.

Styles P tribute

Miss Info: I don’t know if Styles will ever read this…he doesn’t have to, he knows the friendship and support is always there. But I wanted to share his message about the death of his step-daughter, and a story of my own…

MissInfo:
Finally! I’ve been holding my breath waiting for these ever since Todd James tipped me off to his new collaboration with Pharrell
For the first time, Adidas let artists modify the original Superstar shelltoe sneakers…the ones embedded in hip hop’s DNA ever since Run DMC hit that b-boy stance in the 1980’s. And since Pharrell was the original art-connoisseur hip hop artist…his taste in collaborators on this, the latest in his ongoing partnership with Adidas, is impeccable. From our dear friend Todd James aka REAS, to the twisted Japanese manga-mind of Mr., to photographer Cass Bird, to futurism architect Zaha Hadid…they each got to add their own stamp to the shell of the iconic sneaker toes.
I want every single pair! But especially these REAS joints. Start lining up for the drop on August 7th.

Check out more photos and videos of the Pharrell x Adidas Originals Supershells…

Key and Peele Negrotown

It takes skill to make sad truths and rage triggers into something funny and silly and campy and palatable for the masses.
So kudos to Comedy Central’s ‘Key and Peele’ for doing just that.

Take a break from monitoring the passive aggressive volley between The Game and Young Thug today…to watch their skit “Negrotown”…

met

If the White House Correspondents Dinner is Nerd Prom, then Anna Wintour’s annual Met Gala is…Fashion Halloween? Well, this year, since the Costume Institute exhibit is honoring Chinese art and how it has influenced fashion…I’m cringing in advance about all the possible ways that celebs might mishandle this theme. If someone wears a kimono I’ll go postal in the nearest Forever 21.

Bud-Light-Last-Week-Tonight-John-Oliver-HBO-Parody

HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight’, starring ‘Daily Show’-alum John Oliver has quickly become my favorite way of learning about what I should be mad about in the world. It’s actually taken that similar role from ‘The Daily Show,’ and finessed it by making longer rants, with less skits, more context, and all the razor-sharp insight. I urge you to watch Oliver’s breakdown of the Ferguson uprising, his incredible interview with Edward Snowden in Russia (that finally made a real-life comparison of the NSA scandal that I could understand), and his explanation of how ridiculously unfair college sports is to athletes….please cancel your lunch date, and just start watching.

This past Sunday…’Last Week Tonight’ focused on a recent marketing slogan that somehow made it onto bottles of Bud Light beer. Seriously…what the fxck!?!

Did Rick Ross somehow get a copy-writing gig at Bud Light’s ad agency?

Not only did John Oliver take down Bud’s corporate checks and balances system hilariously…but the bonus parody commercial at the end, starring Wyatt Cenac, Alex Karpovsky, etc, was amazing.

Baltimore_mom-Freddie-Gray-riots

The situation in Baltimore, Maryland this week has been a powder keg, or a raisin in the sun. The tweet that floored me was from @Shugah, who quoted a very prophetic James Baldwin Esquire interview from 1968. (Read that for some head crack.) But back to Baltimore, 2015…the complex issues from Freddie Gray’s unexplained spinal injury, his death, the release of his unrelated police record, the days of peaceful protest, and then this week’s explosion of violence, looting, and vandalism…can not be summed up neatly or patched up with a meme. It has to be added to the growing list of issues and incidents that are festering around the country.
But…I just wanted to share an interview that CBS did with Toya Graham, the Baltimore mom who angrily pulled her 16-year-old son off the street when she spotted him throwing rocks at riot police.

Russel-Wilson-Ciara-State-Dinner
(Hair. Laid.)

After first being spotted together earlier in April, Ciara and Russell Wilson made a very public debut on Tuesday night when Ciara accompanied her new Seattle Seahawks football playing beau to the White House State Dinner to honor Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (huh? Why was Wilson even invited to that? By the way, Abe is getting a lot of heat for censoring journalists back in Japan). The couple played coy by instagramming about White House china patterns (Seriously. Both Ciara and Russell)….but looked very handsome together in the photo opps.

Meanwhile…Ciara’s fans have been spamming her ex-fiance/babydaddy Future’s mentions with endless football emoji.
His response?….

amy-schumer-pranks-kim-kanye-time-100

Comedian Amy Schumer is having a particularly no-f*cks-given week and deserves to be saluted for that. On Tuesday night, she managed to both upstage Kanye and Kim Kardashian by fake-falling in front of them on the Time 100 gala red carpet, and simultaneously reveal their total composed lack of consideration for the lesser beings who unfortunately share this planet. GOTCHA, Kimye! I mean just look at the complete lack of reaction.

According to Amy, she asked her publicist if she could pretend to faceplant in from of them, and the publicist said…”well, I can’t stop you.” That’s a green light.

But while Schumer was flopping in front of Yeezy, her Comedy Central sketch comedy series, Inside Amy Schumer, was jumping off season 2…the two highlights being: 1) a catchy music video (co-starring Amber Rose and Method Man) about what America’s butt obsession really ignores. And 2) an incredible parody (co-starring Josh Charles of The Good Wife) of Friday Night Lights which addresses football’s rape culture. Ooof!
