Drake showed blue pride on Friday night, attending the University of Kentucky’s annual Big Blue Madness. The event, where the Kentucky Wildcats introduce their men’s and women’s basketball teams to fans before their upcoming NCAA season, was jam packed as many caught their chance to see the Canadian superstar in action. Along with introducing Wildcats coach John Calipari calling him “one of the most important people in my life,” Drake suited up in UK’s sweats, taking part in pre-game warmups where his airball was the talk of social media last night.

Check out some photos and video below.

Nearly ten years after their “Hold You Down” video, Fat Joe and Jennifer Lopez are back in front of camera together in “Stressin’.” Serving as Fat Joe’s current single, the two Bronx natives shot the Eif Rivera-directed video in New York City this summer. Joe Crack gives fans a quick small teaser of the video, set to premiere on VEVO this Friday.

The whole video’s pretty much a party vibe,” Joe previously told Fuse TV on the video and song’s theme.. “So many obstacles in life … We never want to be looking like we’re stressin’. Never want to let them see you sweat, even though I’m sweating after this. But the point is: We’re enjoying life, life’s too short, so we gotta just enjoy life to the fullest and live every day like it’s the last.” Check out a preview below and buy the Rico Love-produced single on iTunes.

instagram
Hip-Hop Instagram had a very extravagant weekend on social media. From The Carters invading The Louvre to Raury linking up with Young Thug and OG Maco–there was something to tickle the fancy of all tastes on IG. My favorite, though, has to be DMX and Scarface linking up for a friendly game of pool.

kith-nyc-flagship-2014-launch-5

Creative director-designer Ronnie Fieg re-opened the flagship location of popular boutique KITH NYC on Thursday night. Also serving as a celebration to a new chapter of the company, the brand spanking new store was created in collaboration with a design team from Snarkitecture. The end result? A total reflection of the Fieg, whose popularity has risen in recent years for his collaborations with brands such as Asics, New Balance and Timberland to name a few, along with the launch of KITH’s in-house labels (KITH Classic and KITH Academy) that’s nothing short of high quality.

Our own Miss Info and Mikey Fresh both stopped by to show support, along with celebrities such as Busta Rhymes, Victor Cruz of the New York Giants, DJ Clark Kent, Va$htie, singer Justine Skye, Nigel Sylvester, and G.O.O.D. Music’s Travi$ Scott, who served as the night’s entertainment, turning the posh storefront into his own ragefest. The event also marked the launch of varipus special products and collections, highlighted by an adidas Originals EQT Support 9 collaboration.

Head over to High Snobiety for more details on the opening and an extensive photo gallery of the new look inside.

Fall has arrived and Wiz Khalifa is going for a new look. The Pittsburgh rapper started off his Tuesday morning by posting photos on Twitter and Instagram of his new look. The 27-year-old has abandoned his natural black dreadlocks for a brighter color, purple. In the pics, Wiz shows the transformation from white hair (see above) which he calls “Stage 1,” to the end result “Purple Rain.”

With G.O.O.D. Music’s Malik Yusef’s comparison of Kanye’s upcoming album to a pair of Timberlands, we couldn’t help but think of what other shoes Yeezy’s past albums can be compared to. Since 2004, Kanye has blessed with with 6 solo albums, 1 compilation and a collaborative album with JAY Z. So if ‘Ye’s next opus is the classic timbo — what is College DropoutMy Dark Twisted Fantasy… and…

esq-mobsters-050614-xl1

With the last season of Boardwalk Empire under way, I had to bring back an Esquire article from earlier this year that spotlights some of the gangster fashion from the prohibition era. The men’s magazine named the best dressed gangsters from the 1920s, and these guys definitely share the same duds as people like Nucky Thompson and Chalky White.

In no specific order, they named: Joey Gallo, Bugsy Siegel, Cesare Bonventre, Joe Bonanno, Lucky Luciano, Joe Barboza, Frank Costello, Meyer Lansky, Anthony Carfano, and Al Capone as the top 10.

Check out some of the comparisons of these guys to some our favorite artists below…
