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.

yelawolf eminem

We waited long enough for an official Yelawolf and Eminem collaboration — not counting those Shady XV throwaways — and while it’s not quite the lyrical duel some may have hoped for, “Best Friend” sounds like the clear standout off Yela’s new Love Story LP. In the accompanying video, the Shady Records spitters take their spiritual sermon into the house of God. This isn’t your usual Sunday service, though.

BAPE’s flagship boutique in New York City celebrated its 10 year anniversary last on Thursday night (Apr 23) in Manhattan. Special invited guests Pusha T, Travis $cott, Virgil Abloh, Cipha Sounds, Vashtie and Sky Gellatly — as well as tastemakers from around the world huddled into NYC hot spot, Up & Down for a night of open bar Hennessey and incredible DJ sets. Big shouts to Ciph who killed it all night.

Things peaked when Young Travis climbed on top of the DJ booth in usual fashion. Turning the club atmosphere into one of his wild ass shows, the Bape fiend nearly injured himself when he took a spill, but that didn’t stop him from continuing on. Pyrex P closed the party out with a short but sweet set of his crowd favorites. Even the Japanese BAPE staff lost their minds when “Grindin” dropped.

jada-art

How sweet it sounds to hear Fab and Kiss back on their mixtape sh*t. Utilizing Big Daddy Kane’s classic, Jadakiss manhandles the “Young, Gifted, & Black” instrumental on this Friday morning. You know a freestyle is flames when a rapper can make beat that’s been rapped over a million times sound brand new. Bravo to Yonkers’ finest for this.

“What I smoke you can’t burn it, the crown has to be passed down, you can’t earn it”

“You confused, used to be a dude, you Bruce Jenner”

frank-ocean-name

The elusive Frank Ocean finally got his day in court. No, not for a crime, but to finally make the legal transformation from Mr. Breaux to Mr. Ocean. According to TMZ, a judge approved his name change after Frank took care of some back dated driver licence issues.

It had been over a year since the singer first filed to legally change his name to his stage name.
