Bow Wow ft. Cory Gunz & Jae Millz – Do It To The Fullest.


Its been out in the open for quite some time now that Bow Wow was part of the YMCMB crew, but when it came to crazy collaborations, or award winning videos, Bow Weezy wasn’t really in the mix.  But with his newest release featuring ‘6 Foot 7’s Cory Gunz, and Jae Millz, its proof to any doubter that he’s not only part of the Young Money crew, but that plays as part of the team quite well.  Check the out ‘Do It To The Fullest’ produced by Cardiac.

Bright Woods, The LED Stool Collection.



Unique and eye-catching, Bright Woods’ collection of illuminated chairs and coffee tables are sure to capture your attention with their engaging glow. I discovered this dope collection of furniture at Milan Design Week, and we’re enamored with the unique aesthetic that’s equal parts alien nation and woodland tranquility. These radiant pieces, made from wood and natural resin strips, were designed by Giancarlo Zema for the Avanzini Group and are currently on display at the Design in Nature exhibition in the Triennale Design Museum as part of the Milan Furniture Fair.

Blu, The Modular Maestro.


Blu is a modern musical instrument that draws inspiration from the keyboard, re-imagining keys in a modular and flexible way. Much in the same way a child learns to build structures from toy blocks, they can learn to understand tonality and song composition simply by changing the position of the modular keys around the central unit to control pitch and timing of the notes. Its smart, colorful user interface makes learning music an exciting and memorable experience.

The Shangri-La Hotel in Tokyo.


The Shangri-La Hotel in Tokyo has been named as the number one Luxury Hotel in the World in the Traveler’s Choice 2012 Awards by TripAdvisor.  The awards are based on reviews and opinions provided by travelers and were introduced 10 years ago.  The categories for 2012 have been expanded to include top-25 lists for 30 countries and regions, as well as an international competition for the best properties to visit.  3,943 hotels were recognized by TripAdvisor, with the other categories including awards for best service, best bargain, best relaxation and spa and trendiest hotel.

The judging was a result of more than 60 million comments from visitors, taking into account the quality of service, price and standard of guest rooms.  The Shangri-La, close to Tokyo Station in the heart of the metropolis, took the top spot in the category for the 25 top luxury hotels in the world.  The Hotel Imperial Vienna took the second place on the list and the Hotel Palacio de la Magdalena in Soto del Barco in Spain in third.  La Casa del Rector, in Almagro, Spain, was rated fourth-best luxury hotel in the world, with The Grand Del Mar in San Diego, California rounding out the top five places.

Yugoslavian ‘Spomeniks’ Scluptures.


During the 1960s and 70s, thousands of monuments commemorating the Second World War called ‘Spomeniks’ were built throughout the former Yugoslavia; striking monumental sculptures, with an angular geometry echoing the shapes of flowers, crystals, and macro-views of viruses or DNA.  In the 1980s the Spomeniks still attracted millions of visitors from the Eastern bloc; today they are largely neglected and unknown, their symbolism lost and unwanted.  Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers traveled the Balkans photographing these eerie objects, presented in the book Spomenik as a powerful typological series. The beauty and mystery of the isolated, crumbling Spomeniks informs Kempenaer’s inquiry into memory, found beauty, and whether former monuments can function as pure sculpture.

Tyga Talk.


In an interview with XXL, Tyga discussed how the collaboration with Nas came about and what we can expect from his song featuring Nicki Minaj:

“Yeah man, I sent Nas a song like six months ago and I never heard back from him but out of the blue, he called me like, ‘Yo, you doing your thing. I want to be a part of what you doing, I like everything you doing. Keep working hard. I sent him the ‘Kings and Queens’ that night and he did it the next day. I was like, that shit is crazy. Nas always talks that shit. The song, man, [his bars] added the cherry on top. It’s a real classic song. People are gonna like it. I wanna think of a dope video. The storyline of the song, the whole King and Queens [theme], it’s motivational.”

On ‘Muthafucka Up’ featuring Nicki Minaj:

“The song for Nicki is called ‘Muthafucka Up”. I don’t know what they gonna call it on the radio. Maybe they might call it ‘Up.’ That one is one of them going in type songs. Like how Wayne had ‘A Milli.’ One of those Young Money records that people love. We got a crazy visual for that one, too. I don’t wanna give it away. I’ve been doing a lot of features for everyone.”
