Craig David’s Custom Louis Vuitton adidas NMDs Are Too Lit [Photos]
    Sneakerheads have just been put on notice. Soul crooner Craig David might have crushed the custom sneaker game down with his new Louis Vuitton adidas NMDs. Featuring Louis Vuitton detailing throughout, the R&B singer treated himself to two pairs. The all white model bares the iconic brown monogramming on the prime knit upper forming the three signature adidas brand stripes. Additionally, touches of LV are featured on the heel cup and heel tab. The black pair is outfitted in a similar fashion but also has tan leather piping layered on top of the quarter panel stripes. Adding to the details, the matching tan laces are clutch. Both models sport gold colored support bars that give these kicks a luxurious point of difference. No word on how much David paid for the set but it looks like money well spent considering both pairs are one of ones. You can...

Harvey Weinstein Quotes Jay-Z In Weird Statement Addressing Sexual Harassment Claims
Harvey Weinstein was put on blast this week in a scathing expose published by the New York Times that detailed years of sexual harassment claims from women he worked with in Hollywood. The 65-year-old film producer and executive addressed the claims in a new statement after employing Lisa Bloom to help represent him on the matter. The Times piece , posted on Thursday (Oct. 5), opens with actress Ashley Judd detailing an encounter with Weinstein 20 years ago. Judd claims that Weinstein greeted her in a Beverly Hills hotel for an assumed breakfast but that he appeared at the meeting dressed in a bathrobe. At the same hotel, two other women wrote in public statements that Weinstein made inappropriate advances, with some saying that this has been an ongoing situation. Weinstein’s statement was published in full by the Times on Friday, which vaguely references the allegations against him. From the Times: Though...

Cam Newton Apologizes For Sexist Comments [VIDEO]

Cam Newton Apologizes For Sexist Comments [VIDEO]
Cam Newton apologized to everybody. The NFL QB offered up a mea culpa via a video he posted on Twitter.  Earlier this week, Cam went full sexist , laughing at a female reporter’s questions about routes. The blowback was swift, with Oikos Greek Yogurt dropping Newton as a sponsor . Late yesterday, he dropped a video on Twitter apologizing. “After careful thought, I understand that my word choice was extremely degrading and disrespectful to women,” said the Carolina Panthers quarterback. “To be honest, that was not my intentions. And if you are a person who took offense to what I said, I sincerely apologize to you.” Fortunately, Newton went beyond the sorry if you were offended jig. He added later in the clip, “What I did was extremely unacceptable. I’m a father to two beautiful daughters and I try to instill in them that they can be anything that they want...

Bodycam Footage Shows Utah Cop Shooting Fleeing Black Cyclist In The Back
Patrick Harmon, a Black Utah cyclist who was pulled over by police for not using a light on his bike at night, was shot and killed on Aug. 13. Bodycam footage revealed that Harmon was fleeing the scene and gunned down, and the Salt Lake City District Attorney did not find the officer at fault which has civil rights groups and others in an uproar. The Guardian reports : Police in Utah fatally shot a man from behind while he was running away from officers, according to newly released footage, which has sparked accusations of racial profiling and a “brutal execution”. Prosecutors in Salt Lake City have said officers were justified in killing Patrick Harmon, 50, who was pulled over for riding a bicycle without a light and who attempted to flee when police tried to arrest him. Police are not facing charges despite the fact that the body-camera footage...

King Krule On Working With Kanye West: “I Couldn’t Be Bothered”

King Krule On Working With Kanye West: “I Couldn’t Be Bothered”
King Krule , the South London musician who has amassed an underground following, moves on his own time and even has the stones to turn down working with legends. In an interview with the New York Times, the artist born Archy Marshall said that he turned down an offer to work with Kanye West but it appears that the admission wasn’t a case of ego. The Times profiled King Krule ahead of his upcoming third studio album, The Ooz. He first broke out on the scene with his self-titled EP in 2011 when he was just 18, and critics have noted his strong Hip-Hop and acid jazz influences. In the chat, Krule explained that his sparse output is a matter of keeping his sound pure and not latching on the next big wave. But the most head-turning part of the talk was the Kanye West portion. From the Times: Dean...

  » by Omar Mazariego Oct 5 2017, 11:05pm Share This Tweet This Email This It’s been a hot minute since Waka Flocka Flame’s dropped any new material so we were pleasantly surprised that he finally came through with something new. For his visuals to “Big Dawg” the Brick Squad rapper surrounds himself with a bevy of attractive young ladies that ultimately kept their distance from Tammy Rivera’s hubby throughout the video. And after making some controversial comments about the Hip-Hop scene in New York a few years back, Trinidad James heads back to the city that never sleeps and shows some love for his clip to “Big Dawg.” We wonder how Mysonne will feel about this.

YouTube Streams To Be Counted In Billboard Charts

YouTube Streams To Be Counted In Billboard Charts
After years of not being recognized by music trade publication  Billboard magazine , YouTube views will start being factored in stream data within their charts. In what many insiders deem as a decision that should have been made some time ago, music visuals hosted on the world’s most popular video sharing site will finally be accounted for. According to a recent report by Hits Daily Double, Billboard will start to capture plays from official music videos and user-generated content that contains portions of registered tracks or even instrumentals. This new consideration comes at a very interesting time in the music industry. Within the last couple of months the title of most watched YouTube video of all time has seen some shifts. Back in July Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” knocked off Psy’s “Gangnam Style” with 2.9 billion views only to be surpassed by  Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” in August which is currently on...

Stephen Curry & Kevin Durant Poke Holes In Alleged Sneaker Beef

Stephen Curry & Kevin Durant Poke Holes In Alleged Sneaker Beef
Many observers took note of a little sneaker beef sniping going on between Stephen Curry, who rocks Under Armour , and Kevin Durant , who reps for the Nike squad. While it seems like there was tension between the two Golden State Warriors superstars, a photo on Instagram posted by Chef Curry with the pot has dispelled such chatter with ease. The so-called tension began when Durant joined The Bill Simmons Podcast as a guest and quipped that people don’t want to wear Curry’s signature sneakers. Although Curry said he and KD cleared the air between them and that it won’t put a dent in the momentum of the upcoming season, the rumors that a brewing beef was on the horizon couldn’t be ignored. With the Instagram photo, Curry and Durant can be seen smiling with KD pointing at his Nike shoes knowingly with the caption reading, “Why so serious?...

Jay-Z Calls Chris Martin A “Modern Day Shakespeare”

Jay-Z Calls Chris Martin A “Modern Day Shakespeare”
  » by Omar Mazariego Aug 2 2017, 3:20pm Share This Tweet This Email This Is Jay-Z breaking Biggie’s 4th Crack Commandment? In a recent interview with UK’s Metro News the Hip-Hop mogul called Coldplay’s Chris Martin a “modern day Shakespeare.” Wait, what?! Far be it for us to judge anyone based on their musical preference but comparing a man to a poet that many regard as the greatest writer in the English language seems a little much. We probably shouldn’t be too surprised though as Jigga and Martin have been kicking it for more than a decade now. Said Hova, “We are good friends — but what I got to say has nothing to do with our friendship… I have been in the industry long enough to know when I’m in the presence of a genius… and Chris Martin is just that… In years to come, Britain will look back...

#ReclaimingMyTime: The Funniest Congresswoman Maxine Water Memes

#ReclaimingMyTime: The Funniest Congresswoman Maxine Water Memes
Congresswoman Maxine Waters is a national treasure, capturing the hearts of the social media generation with her digs at President Donald Trump and ousted Fox News host Bill O’Reilly . Auntie Maxine, as she’s affectionately called, has once again given the Internets life with her “reclaiming my time” quip getting flipped into a hilarious set of memes. Waters spoke during a House Financial Services Committee hearing last Thursday (July 27) when she pointed a line of questioning towards Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. When Mnuchin attempted to gloss over the California politician’s pointed question about the receipt of a memo, she used the “reclaiming my time” phrase to interrupt as she’s allowed to do under congressional rules. The phrase has become something of a mantra and a moment for those in social media and beyond. We’ve posted the best we could find below and on the following pages. There’s even a gospel song remix...

#AffirmativeAction: Twitter Reacts To DOJ’s Plans To Sue Over College Admission Policy

#AffirmativeAction: Twitter Reacts To DOJ’s Plans To Sue Over College Admission Policy
Affirmative action , a set of policies that came into view under the presidency of John F. Kennedy, in recent times has come under attack by opponents of the practice who call it a form of reverse racism. While the related policies were enacted to provide a fair opportunity to all, the Justice Department is gathering itself to launch a lawsuit based on how colleges admit students due to race. The New York Times obtained a document showing that Justice Department officials are shifting office resources to take aim at universities over their affirmative action policy in order to determine if they withheld white students from enjoying the same admission opportunity. The Times writes : The document, an internal announcement to the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.” The...

Tupac’s Old California Home Up For Sale [Photos]
  » by Omar Mazariego Aug 2 2017, 9:36am Share This Tweet This Email This Anyone looking to own a piece of Hip-Hop history is being given the opportunity to do so right now as Tupac Shakur’s old California estate is being put back on the market. The New York Post reports that the All Eyez On Me rapper’s Woodland Hill, CA residence has been put up for sale to the tune of $2,659,000. The house is the very one that Pac moved into in 1995 after Suge Knight posted his bail and signed him to Death Row Records. Unfortunately for Pac he never really owned the property (you know Suge did him dirty with his royalties) but the same can’t be said for Limp Bizkit’s DJ Lethal who purchased the property before selling it to it’s current owners in 2003. The six-bedroom, five-bathroom crib comes decked with a wood-mantled...
