The Infiniti Emerg-E Concept.


Infiniti has announced further details of a major new sports car concept set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show.  The Nissan-owned brand revealed February 3 that the model will be called ‘Emerg-E’, promising a low-emission, high-performance and high-technology car, with several firsts — and a new design direction for the brand.  The concept will use a range extender drivetrain, meaning that it will contain an electric motor and a gas-powered generator, as opposed to Nissan’s proven 100 percent battery technology used by cars such as the Leaf.

It will also have the drivetrain mounted in a mid-ship package, between the two axles, which the firm says is a first and significantly helps the weight distribution to improve handling — a concept which could be transferred to future production models, assuming it tests well.

The first partial photos of the model appear to show a low-slung form, with a two-seater cockpit and a shape which appears to have been at least partially inspired by the Infiniti Essence concept, revealed at Geneva in 2009.  The Essence was designed to celebrate Infiniti’s 20th anniversary, and while there have been no noises from Nissan on whether the Emerg-E will hit production, the trend seems to indicate that Infiniti is working towards a very specific goal.

Names in rap have been the subject of much debate.  All the Lil’s and Young’s, the Wiggas, Jiggas, and N*ggas in the rap game all need a way to make themselves stand out.  And it wasn’t until ‘Pop Chart Lab‘ devised the ingenious chart below, that all the names, from all the greats came into an intelligible format for all to see.  This detailed guide to the semantics of rap names, the widescreen edition print spans over seven square feet and contains 636 rapper names as well as some all-time greats illustrated in the background.  Click the pic above to see the chart in all its glory.

Top 10 Sexiest Female DJ’s.


Art can be a beautiful thing, no matter what the premise.  There’s no doubt in my mind that DJ’ing is an art form, and some of the sounds that it creates are nothing short of beautiful.  Luckily for us, if the person creating that art is beautiful as well, its not a bad thing.  No one really cared what Picasso looked like, just that his work was unique.  People weren’t lining up around the corner to take a picture with Edvard Munch, we just know his famous painting “The Scream”.  And lets be honest… Frida was not the baddest b*tch on the block.  But in this day in age, male fans are blessed to have some very attractive, and very talented artists to listen to.  Below is a list of potentially the top 10 sexiest female Disk Jockeys on Earth, and before I get a flock of emails telling me that ‘such-and-such‘ does look as good as ‘whats-her-face‘ let me just remind you that as a DJ myself, talent is sexy.  So listen to some of the work before you judge the looks.

Weezy’s Million Dollar Beats.


Weezy was rocking million dollar Beats By Dre headphones that were created in collaboration with Graff Diamonds courtside at the NBA All-Star game. Add that up with his diamond grills and… I’ll let someone else do the math.

And disregarding the reports of people saying that Wayne was “high as a kite”, everyone seems to be talking about the Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne kiss (on the lips no less) at the NBA All-Star game. Drake looks like he’s feeling anything but proud.
