A$AP Rocky has unveiled the tracklisting for his forthcoming new album ‘LongLiveA$AP’, revealing a host of guest stars, including Florence Welch of Florence And The Machine, Drake and Kendrick Lamar.  The record will be released on January 15, 2013, and also features appearances from Santigold, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Pharrell.  However, the record will not feature ‘Ridin” – his collaboration with Lana Del Rey that was pulled from the KickDrums’ recent mixtape.

The New York hip-hop star was originally due to release ‘LongLiveA$AP’ in September of this year but rescheduled the release date to October 31. He then subsequently shelved the release until 2013 after revealing that the mastering of the record was taking longer than expected, due to his refusal to back down over clearing any of the samples used on the LP.  Explaining the delay, Rocky said: “The issue with my album is I got things on it that’s so out of this world that it’s taking so long to get mastered. That’s the issue, and I refuse to take anything off. It’s complete, everything is being mastered and cleared right now. Its just so hard to get things cleared, because you got to find people to clear samples.”

Slaughterhouse ft. Cee Lo Green – My Life (Behind The Scenes).


A good behind the scenes look at a video or record is always entertaining, but not too many have Eminem in jeggings, getting fed grapes by an anonymous assistant.  Take a look at the Slaughterhouse doing their thing with Cee Lo Green while filming the ‘My Life’ video.

Thanos Gets His Own Comic.


Thanos’ cameo at the end of “Marvel’s The Avengers” was tragically brief, but it’s the start of some beautiful things for the purple-skinned death-worshiper. It’s currently rumored that he’ll have a major role to play in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie, and will appear again in the subsequent “Avengers” sequel. But if that’s far too long for you to wait for your next Thanos fix, never fear: he’s getting his own comic book to help pass the time!

“Hell Yeah” writer Joe Keatinge and “Thor” artist Richard Elson are teaming together for “Thanos: Son of Titan,” a five-issue Marvel Comics miniseries launching in October. According to Keatinge, “Son of Titan” is all about “how Thanos came to be” — the perfect entry point for folks who aren’t already familiar with Thanos’ history at Marvel.

“I don’t go Forrest Gump on it, but aspects of the Marvel Universe have been born that directly turn Thanos into who he is,” Keatinge told USA Today’s Brian Truitt. “He ends up at the point where he’s worshiping Death and destroying universes. How do you get to that head space where you’re like, ‘This is what I want to do with the rest of my life?'”

As for what makes Thanos special, “Son of Titan” editor Stephen Wacker said: “He’s just an evil guy. He wants to rule over things. He wants power. It’s just so over the top and operatic — it’s as if Shakespeare wrote an opera.”

Michael Bay’s ‘Ninja Turtles’.


At the annual Nickelodeon upfront presentation recently, über-producer Michael Bay revealed details for Platinum Dunes’ upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, including a new origin story for the half-shell heroes that is sure to raise the ire of diehard fans.

“When you see this movie, kids are going to believe one day these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie,” said Bay as he took the stage to discuss his new vision for the reptilian reboot. “These turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable.”

In the original mythology, four baby turtles fall into the sewer and come into contact with glowing radioactive ooze, which mutates them into four bad-ass warriors trained in ninjutsu by astute rodent Splinter. But could the rewriting of the Turtles’ origin story dissuade some fans from embracing the newest incarnation? A comic book-to-movie adaptation’s worst nightmare is bad pre-publicity, and Bay may have generated that in about 30 words.

On the flip side, it might seem outrageous to non-fans of the series that Teenage Mutant Ninja purists are offended by the new mythos of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. Truth, we might sound a wee bit ridiculous when we cry out, “I can’t believe Bay says they’re aliens when they’re obviously derived from radioactive slime!” But Bay is essentially erasing almost 30 years of love for transmogrified adolescent reptile ninjas by claiming each turtle is less of a fearsome, fighting toxic anomaly and more of a forest green E.T. with nunchucks. What would Shredder think!?

PopWatchers, how does this new origin story make you feel? Are you a purist for the original backstory, or will you embrace Bay’s vision? And who would you cast for this live-action TMNT reboot? Personally, I think Splinter’s a toss-up between Morgan Freeman and Kate Upton.

 

Rare Vintage Sunglasses.


RESPECT MY AUTHORITAY!

I’m the type of person who wears shades only in hot weather.  Oddly enough it can be brighter than Reese Witherspoon’s teeth outside, but if its cold, I just don’t feel the need to wear shades.  But after peeping a collection of truly magnificent sun glasses that my good friend Andrew M. (a.k.a. Moodge) owns, I got interested in collecting.  When I began my hunt for rare vintage sunglasses, I was a bit stumped on where to start my search.  After weeks of scanning the web, I came across an ingenious solution that would have never crossed my mind in a million years… RareVintageSunglasses.com.  They’re selection is remarkable, and although their prices reflect the rarity of the pieces they carry, they’re a good value if you have the cash for rare sunglasses market.  Check out their site and some of their gear.

The Versace x H&M Lookbook.


H&M has released the first official campaign visuals for its design collaboration with Versace, starring models of the moment Daphne Groeneveld and Lindsey Wixson.  Lensed by photographer duo Mert & Marcus, the images give a first impression of Versace’s greatest hits-inspired collection due to hit stores in November.  The range, which includes both men’s and women’s styles, as well as home accessories, “will look back on the heritage of the brand, full of leather, print, color and exuberance in exclusive materials,” H&M said.  A second collection, also designed by Donatella Versace, will become available in January.  Past designers who have collaborated with H&M include Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons, Jimmy Choo, Sonia Rykiel, and Lanvin.

Pusha T ft. Tyler The Creator – Touble On My Mind (Live Footage & Official Video).


Considering Eminem & Nicki Minaj or Michael Jackson & Kanye West, hip hop has seen its share of random, yet extraordinary collaborations.  Pusha T and Tyler the Creator is no different.  The track “Trouble On My Mind” is a doozie that’s been taking the web by storm since its release.  However, without the rapper’s knowing, Pusha T’s track, “Trouble On My Mind,” featuring Tyler, the Creator, hit the ‘net. Red Bull exclusively premiered the track on July 8th, but it seems as if Pusha T wasn’t made aware it was to debut.  Pusha tweeted…

Oh really??? People dropping music without letting me know??? U think that right?? U think I’m happy bat that??… U thirst buckets just couldn’t wait till Monday huh???????? U could run a wet dream. [sic]

Never the less, check the video above for the first live performance, and the video below for the official video.

Game’s R.E.D. Album Debut’s At Number 1.


After more delays than a space shuttle launch, Compton rapper the Game will finally have his reward next week when his endlessly pushed-back fourth effort, The R.E.D. Album, debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. According to figures provided by SoundScan, the disc moved just under 98,000 copies, enough to grab the top spot but well below the first-week figures for his 2008 album LAX, which opened with 239,000 in sales.  Either way, it’s just enough to beat out Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne, which drops to #2 in its third week, as sales dove 47 percent to 94,000 for a three-week total just north of 707,000.
