Genius Moment

jadakiss breakdancing

Jadakiss can rap really well, that’s common knowledge. But who knew Kiss was as nice with the breakdancing as he is with the bars? Here he is seemingly playing around on the hardwood before pulling out a damn near perfect windmill out of his backpocket. That’s some serious flexibility for a 40-year-old. Top 5 dead or alive? We think so.

friends in paris

It’s been four years since Jay Z and Kanye West joined forces for Watch The Throne, and sadly it doesn’t look like that heavily speculated sequel is anywhere close*. Thankfully, there’s some bright and funny people out there to keep us entertained during our long, painful wait. Bianca Bosso from The Interns decided to reinterpret Hov and Ye’s club smash (not to mention sustained source of awkwardness for white people everywhere) “N*ggas In Paris” as a more family-friendly illustrated book. Those Jay faces are worth the read alone. Stick around for Drake’s cameo, too.

If you’d like Friends In Paris to become a real thing, support the Kickstarter campaign here.

*With that said, Dr. friggin’ Dre actually released an album this year, so anything can happen.

(Yes. It’s Tom Hardy catching the holy ghost of Wu-Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.”)

Miss Info: These are the moments when you scream out to the heavens…Thank you, Internets!
I’ve made no secret of my awkward obsession with actor Tom Hardy. I’ve extolled his virtues on this blog (like this Bane fashion analysis). I’ve sat through weak plots and corny dialogue to support his films (for example, The Drop, which was unoriginal. The only good thing about the movie was Tom Hardy with an adorable pitbull puppy. I’m even going to watch the poorly-reviewed, straight-to-ondemand Child 44 just to see Hardy tackle a Russian accent). And I’ve urged all my friends to go see Mad Max:Fury Road, and Peaky Blinders, and Warrior. But I had no idea that all this time, Tom was performing Dubsmash rap videos of Action Bronson, Wu-Tang Clan, 50 Cent, etc. with his friend and stunt double Jacob Tomuri. Thank you, Jacob, and thank you, Vulture, for ending my week with this gift!

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…

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.

The N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton: The Story of N.W.A. is set to hit theaters this summer on August 14. On Grammy night, the production team gave fans an extended commercial/trailer of the F. Gary Gray-directed film. Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, watch the official preview below.

For those not keeping track, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is currently on the road, and stopped in Los Angeles for the week. After a brilliant parody of the iconic Fresh Prince of Bel-Air intro on Monday, Fallon returned on Wednesday night with another ’90s trip down memory lane.

Jimmy wanted to “reminisce” about his time at Bayside High School, meaning a reunion of the cast from Saved By The Bell. Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) and a much heavier Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins), all make appearances, figuring out their dates for the upcoming Valentine’s Day dance. Along with revisiting classic moments from the television sitcom’s wonder years (Slater’s ballet dancing, the crew’s “Friends Forever” under their Zack Attack group), someone finds out they’re pregnant.

Watch the reunion below.

black dynamite the wizard of watts

Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite — an animated adaptation of the 2009 film of the same name — is capping off its second season with a special musical episode packed with powerful racial commentary and a star-studded cast. Titled “The Wizard of Watts,” the season finale is set in the Magical Land of Oz-Watts, where its army of oppressive pigs finally become defeated through the melting powers of good old fashioned camcorders.

The primary villain in the Magical Land of Oz-Watts, where the story takes place, is a vicious pig clad in riot gear. Water does not neutralize this Oz villain; instead this baddie gets melted with a camcorder. “Oh, no! Not an irrefutable visual record of my illegal actions!” the anthropomorphized pig wails as he turns to mush at the musical’s climax. (via New York Times)

The episode was actually conceived two years ago, but feels all the more timely given the tragic events that took place in Ferguson and Staten Island last year. Tyler, The Creator, Chance The Rapper and Erykah Badu all lend their voices to the musical special, which airs on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim tomorrow night (January 10).

meow the jewels

El-P and Killer Mike haven’t even dropped Run The Jewels 2 yet, and already they’re about to start on a hilarious reworked version of the album featuring nothing but cat sounds (you read that right). The idea, dubbed Meow The Jewels, was floated by the duo as a joke a few months ago, until one fan launched a Kickstarter to fund the project. Always up for a laugh, El-P and Killer Mike agreed to the album if the Kickstarter reached $45,100 — and lo and behold, it smashed that target this week by over $10,000. The pair plan to donate all the additional profits to the families of Eric Garner and Mike Brown.

Aside from a “shit load of cats,” Meow The Jewels will also feature contributions from a star-studded cast including Just Blaze, The Alchemist, Dan the Automator, Baauer, Prince Paul, Skywlkr, BOOTS, Geoff Barrow, Zola Jesus, Nick Rook and Solidified Sun. No word on when the album will be cozying up on shelves, but you can pick up the meow-less version of Run The Jewels 2 on October 28.

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!
