Ayo… Wendy’s Got Beef?


Beef has long been almost essential an element of hip-hop as the it is to the fast food business but now, the two meanings have merged thanks to an inexplicable, yet ridiculously entertaining mixtape from none other than Wendy’s. That’s right, Wendy’s, the burger joint, the one that’s near-constantly bucking shots at their fry-slinging rivals on Twitter; they’ve taken all that Twitter beef, mashed down into a patty, and served up a hot, fresh helping of surprisingly deft lyrical goodness with We Beefin’?, and it’s honestly, pretty darn good.

Meanwhile… Back At Drake’s House (Back to Back).


Drake-Angry-Philip-Seymour-Hoffman-Gets-His-Rolling-Stone-Cover

I was having a conversation earlier in the week with my good friend and producer Masna, about Drake’s semi-response to Meek Mills’ accusations of Drizzy’s lyrics on Meeks album being ghost written. I personally thought his first response was a bit soft served. A rapper who built a career around “Diss me, and you’ll never hear a reply for it.” finally straight up disses someone one, but it was only a few subliminal bars that rang through on a mellow “not addressing the subject” feel.  What I told Manni is that Drake should have come full force in his response, a blistering rebutle of indictments oozing with ferocity… And then he did. Take a listen to October’s Very Own’s second diss track titled “Back to Back” and sound off on what you think.

Bernard Lahousse | Science of Food Pairing

As both a bio-engineer and gastronomoic scientist, Bernard Lahousse is seen as one of the world’s foremost food innovators. At WHAT DESIGN CAN DO! 2014, the Belgian founder of foodpairing.com offered his scientific expertise on the topic of experimental eating, how he designs with tastes, and the ways in which the intersection of food and chemistry can lead to both palpable and visual excellence. The methodology lahousse has developed is called ‘foodpairing’ and builds on the principle that seemingly disparate ingredients combine well with one another when they share flavor components. For example: coffee, strawberries and asparagus make an excellent combination, since vanilla is the primary essence in all three. The way our palates experience flavor is much more complex than taste alone. in fact, it is influenced primarily through the interaction between the senses. Of these our ability to smell is responsible for about 80% of our perception of taste, beckoning the question ‘how important is our nose and how does that influence the food and combinations we like?’ In 2007, lahousse began the interactive website foodpairing.com, a food-tech company at the cutting edge of gastronomy, computational science and digital advertising. It operates as one of the world’s largest ingredient and flavor databases with a series of unique algorithms capable of calculating combinations and fully novel recipes. In addition to offering pre-determined experimental concoctions, the site engages the visitor with easy-to-follow graphics, known as ‘trees’, with branches of foods that share basic aroma and odor profiles on a molecular level. the purpose is to inspire both chefs and anyone interested in cuisine to experiment with new combinations and ideas.

CNN covers a mini documentary on Clipse, the renowned Virginia Beach hip-hop duo comprising real-life brothers Pusha T and No Malice. Despite a small glimmer of hope earlier this year, the future of Clipse has become increasingly uncertain, as No Malice has repeatedly expressed a disinterest in any further collaborations with his brother. CNN reporter Bill Weir offers a in-depth look into the brother’s current relationship and differing ideologies (No Malice recently became a born-again Christian). In fact, not once during the entire segment do the two brothers appear on camera together.
