pusha-t

Before BAPE’s 10-Year anniversary kicked off, I had the chance to speak to Pyrex P about the brand’s impact on streetwear and hip-hop. He credits Nigo and BAPE as the real inspiration behind his own line, Play Cloths.

“I look at BAPE as a family. They’ve been so influential in streetwear culture. I’m talking about my Play Cloths line to Billionaire Boys Club — the only reason I probably did a streetwear line was because of BAPE.”

Update: Pusha also talked about working with Diddy, Kanye West, The Neptunes and The-Dream.

vic mensa

Vic Mensa checks in with Power 106 LA’s Justin Credible to talk about his new Roc Nation deal, which was officially announced yesterday, and meeting Jay Z. “It’s just enlightening to speak to him about this game and pick up that game, because Jay is one of the smartest people I’ve ever met in general, especially in music,” he says.

The Chicago rapper also speaks on his Coachella performance, that freshly inked Roc-A-Fella tattoo, working with the other half of The Throne, his “competitive” relationship with Chance The Rapper and his forthcoming project Traffic. Oh, and Vic has a crazy story about running through Obama’s backyard as a kid.

cam-ron

Cam’ron appeared on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore on Wednesday night alongside comedian Chris Distefano and Newark Mayor Ras Baraka. The topic of discusssion? Snitching. For those that forgot, one of many unforgettable Killa Cam interviews came in 2007 when the Dipset rapper appeared on 60 Minutes (and later on FOX News). During that sitdown, Cam’ron stated he would not speak to police if a serial killer lived next door to him, which ignited a lot of backlash.

Fast forward to last night, where the topic of speaking to the police came up again. While he still sticks to his beliefs, the conversation this time was more insightful and more toned down compared to seven years ago.

Watch below.
