Big Sean’s mixtape announcement video kicks off with a boa constrictor slithering around the emcee’s neck, as 18-year-old Chicago producer Young Chop’s beat rings in the background.  Rightfully titled Detroit, Big Sean is gearing up for his new mixtape right after Labor Day Weekend.

Yelawolf’s Next Album.


Shady Record’s new kid on the block did pretty well with his freshman album, selling about 40,000 units in the first week.  In the spirit of a true hustler, he’s already begun conceptualizing his next album, and takes some time to talk about it in the video below.  Check the method.

Kate Moss Is The New Mango Spring 2012 Campaign Model.


Kate Moss has been revealed as the face of Mango’s Spring 2012 campaign, appearing in print and television campaigns captured by Terry Richardson.  While the Barcelona-based retailer had opted for actresses including Scarlett Johansson and Penélope Cruz to front collections in recent years, Moss’s appointment marks a move further into the realm of high fashion for the brand.  Kate Moss attended a photocall January 24 at Mango’s London flagship store in Oxford Street ahead of the collection launch.

A television commercial starring Moss called ‘Spy Game’ will also go live across 40 countries including the UK, France and Germany early March.  The fashionista’s previous high street collaborations include modeling and designing her own fashion lines for British retailer Topshop.  “Kate Moss was chosen as the image of Mango because she is a world-famous fashion icon, making her one of the most sought-after models in the fashion world.”

 

The 2013 Nissan GTR.


Nissan keeps adding more to its flagship GT-R sports car to help keep competing alongside its rivals. A new update for the 2012 model year in Europe pegs the engine output at an impressive 542-hp, over the previous year’s 530-hp number. Billed as a 2012 model year car overseas, this improvement, along with a slew of others, is expected to debut on a US-spec version for 2013. (US-Spec models will come officially rated at 545-hp).

Along with the improved engine output of 550 PS (542-hp) and 632 Nm (466 lb-ft), Nissan also claims improved efficiency and an enhanced transmission “feel” thanks to a new shift fork arm, a firmer flywheel housing bearing and a new differential oil.

A stiffer body structure now promises improved rigidity, while Nissan has also developed a new asymmetric suspension, with a stiffer spring rate on the left side and an imbalanced wheel load (when stationary), for right-hand drive versions. This new arrangement is designed to compensate for RHD models where the car is weighted to the right side thanks to both the location of the propeller shaft and the driver.  In addition, Nissan has announced a new track version of the GT-R for right-hand drive markets, like Japan and the UK.

50 Cent And The Big 10.


The master of musical mischief himself, 50 Cent announced the other day on twitter that he’s releasing a new EP titled “The Big 10”, and that he’d be shooting a music video for every single track.  For those of you who remember the Deluxe Edition of The Massacre, we know that shooting a music video for every one of 50’s songs may not be the best idea.   A majority of the videos on the bonus DVD were vastly inferior to the professionally funded, and label distributed hits off the CD like ‘Candy Shop’.  But as a 50 fan, I hope he’s learned from his mistakes, and I greatly look forward to seeing what he’s got cooking in the kitchen for “The Big 10”.
