Life Beyond Rap


slim thug

And now for the most ridiculous story of the day. In the “Your Money” section of today’s The New York Times, Slim Thug penned an op-ed titled “Slim Thug’s Real Estate Game Plan, Dashed by a Dalliance.” In it, the Boss Hogg Outlaw opens up about the time he wanted to sell his five-bedroom house in Houston, but ended up sleeping with his real estate agent (you sly dog, Slim) and ultimately lost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

jamie-xx

Miss Info: When I need to go to a lonely, quiet, contemplative place…or maybe is it more accurate to say, when I’m already in a lonely place and I need some music that leaves me there and doesn’t try to drag me to a stupid party to make me feel better…I know I can always rely on those moody Brits of The XX. Now this June, frontman Jamie XX (who has hip hop fans like Drake who also knows the pop music value of sadness) is releasing a solo album called In Colour. Can. Not. Wait. And if this new single “Loud Places,” that Jamie debuted on BBC Radio is any indication…the solo material will be very much in keeping with the xx┬ávibes of previous albums like Coexist (it even features Jamie’s bandmate Romy) and I mean that in the best way possible.

Listen to Jamie XX’s “Loud Places” featuring Romy Madley Croft after the jump…

Fritz The Golden Retriever

(Fritz vs. Hard-shell Taco)

Miss Info: Just a brief break from all the rap stuff. I know there’s everything from Rich Homie Quan fleeing the Liv goons on a speedboat like he’s Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice And there Action Bronson cookin’ up with his red-headed doppelganger Mario Batali. And if you haven’t watched Mikey’s sit down with ASAP Rocky in Austin, that will touch anyone with a human heart.

But…for right now…you must watch this silly pet video. Seriously. I know I might have extra-hormone reactions to things these days but this shxt was just friggin’ hilarious to me…

action bronson mario batali

After a brief intermission (he has a new album out, in case you haven’t heard), Action Bronson returns with episode nine of his food series, Fuck, That’s Delicious. Back in the Big Apple, Bam Bam visits the famous Italian food market Eately to make a number of dishes inspired by Mr. Wonderful with help from celebrity chef Mario Batali.

If your stomach is rumbling a little too loudly after watching this, then you’ll be pleased to know that the dishes will be included in Bronson and Batali’s forthcoming visual cookbook, which he told Hot 97 about yesterday.

Chance The Rapper has already established himself as one of music’s brightest new talents, but here it’s all about his keen acting chops in this new short film titled Mr. Happy.

Victor (played by Chance) has his death planned out before an unlikely meeting with an attractive, fun-loving artist changes his outlook. But can it change his life itself?

Heavy stuff.

asap ferg vr porn

Complex have clearly been having fun with this new virtual reality porn technology. After getting a group of elderly people to try out the device, Plex invited A$AP Ferg, Action Bronson, Fetty Wap, Jean Grae, Big Body Bes and The-Dream (who apparently spends 50 percent of his day watching porn) to give it a go. Needless to say, their reactions were pretty hilarious.

Nikelab x Sacai 2015 outfit

MissInfo: I know all my guys here at MissInfo.TV get all worked up over Yankee hats with Supreme box logos on them, and every glimpse of Kanye’s Adidas Yeezy Boost was click crack on social media. But I’ve heard barely a peep about this Nikelab x Sacai collection from most folks. Maybe it’s because the set of pleat-backed jackets and hoodies are for women? Maybe it’s because Chitose Abe doesn’t have the Kardashians and the Rihannas of the world sitting next to the fashion editors at the Sacai shows? Not sure…but I’ve been a superfan of Sacai for the longest. Think wool baseball jackets with lace flounce backs, or combo wool and silk scarf dresses. Lots of tent shapes and weird colors, but so well done. This collaboration with Nike doesn’t have any of the sex appeal of H&M’s Alexander Wang hype-machine. But I love it. The Spring 2015 pieces will be on Nikelab on March 19th.

Check out NikeLab x Sacai’s great video presentation and their futuristic Air Max 90 interpretation, after the jump…

stalley currensy boyz in the woods

Curren$y and Stalley are more known for their love of Chevys and weed than the great outdoors, but the two rappers put their street smarts to the test in this new series, Boyz In The Woodz. Presented by Complex and Old Spice, the first episode finds Spitta and Stalley faced with the challenge of starting a fire and cooking fish out in the Cali woods. They get help from a wilderness expert, of course, but they soon discover this whole “outdoor thing” is easier said than done.

UPDATE: Episode 2 added.
