The death of Sean Price is still resonating deep through the hip-hop community and Duck Down has been doing their part to keep the legacy of Ruck alive. They recently just put together a tribute video for the veteran rapper, comprised of past interview clips, photographs, music videos and behind-the-scenes footage to give fans who weren’t too aware of Sean P a glimpse of how he was during his time on earth.

Eric and Jeff aka Yung Meyer and Yung Bugsy hosted another insightful episode of their podcast A Waste of Time. This week Chromeo’s Dave 1 sat down for dinner with the fellas for dinner and conversation.

Our guest this week is no stranger to the Upper West Side: Dave 1, lead singer of Chromeo, joins us to talk about his time at Columbia University, what it meant re-introducing Juicy J to New York City, and why Bryan Adams is Canada’s Dr. Dre. We also discussed the time A-Trak stole our Tupperware, Dave’s issues with the movie The Wolfpack, and when exactly the last time he wore a hat was. All that, plus Cam’ron, Drake, Solange, and how in the world Jason Derulo ended up on his iPod.

(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!

In conjunction with the release of the new 2016 Scion iA, our friend Eddie Huang scooped up Cam’ron, Prince Paul, Vince Staples, and Stevie Lee to hit the AV All-Purpose Show. During their cruise, the fellas chopped it up about every day life.

Eddie starts things off (literally) with the push of a button—the iA has dope standard features, like the push-start and 7” touchscreen display (with optional navigation). He scoops up plenty of notables, like one of hip hop’s most iconic DJs/producers, Prince Paul (think Stetsasonic, Boogie Down Productions, Big Daddy Kane and De La Soul) with his son, DJ P. Forreal; musicians Vince Staples and Stevie Lee; and rapper Cam’ron, giving them all a small ride-along to soak in the iA’s vibes.
