On September 13, 1996, Tupac Shakur tragically passed away after being shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. At around 4:03 p.m., Tupac was declared dead after his body started hemorrhaging blood and doctors were unable to stop the internal bleeding. His mother, Afeni, ordered the doctors to stop after blood loss became too severe and ‘Pac was soon declared dead after living seven days in a medically-induced coma. The official cause of death was noted after an autopsy as respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest in connection with multiple gunshot wounds. Shakur’s mother positively identified her son at the hospital after his death, the Clark County Coroner’s office certified the death certificate and, most disturbing, a photo from Shakur’s autopsy leaked out of the coroner’s office, showing the rapper laying with his upper chest sliced open and the first word of his “Thug Life” tattoo visible on his stomach. His remains were cremated at his mother’s request. During his brief life, Tupac was arguably the most revered and celebrated rapper to ever do it. In a career that stretched from his days as a background dancer for the Oakland-based hip-hop collective, Digital Underground, to acting in films and his celebrated run at Death Row Records, Tupac Shakur’s life and music touched the lives of millions of fans across the planet. Due to having one of the most extensive and exhaustive catalogs of music, Tupac has sold over 75 million records worldwide making him one of the most commercially successful musicians of all-time. His discography features some of hip-hop’s most enduring records including “California Love”, “I Get Around,” “Hail Mary,” “Dear Mama” and countless others. Stories that Shakur is still alive persist today, The details surrounding Tupac Shakur’s death have been recounted dozens of times in the nearly 18 years since the night he was shot in Las Vegas. Newspaper and magazine articles, books, documentaries and websites have recapped, analyzed, scrutinized and commodified the rapper and actor’s unsolved murder, ranging from sober accounts to wild-eyed conspiracy theories. There are even those who still hold onto the belief that Shakur is not really dead, with reports over the years having him living in Cuba, New Zealand, Tasmania or rural Pennsylvania.

Audi is looking to get in on all the CES action as the brand announces they will be unveiling the Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight concept car during the Las Vegas electronics show. LED headlights are still a newer technology on the automotive scene, but the German auto maker is looking to the future for the headlamps on this beast. This Audi concept has been outfitted with laser diode headlights that are capable of illuminating the road up to 1,640 feet. Of course what’s under the hood is just as impressive. Audi has equipped the Quattro Laserlight with a plug-in hybrid drive system that pumps out a whopping 700 horsepower while still being able to get 94 miles to the gallon. There is plenty more technology used throughout the vehicle including Audi’s MMI multimedia system, a system that controls all of the car’s on-board electronics. Sport Quattro concepts have been popping up more frequently, and while Audi won’t commit to the Laserlight specifically, they have confirmed that some form of the concepts will be landing at dealers in the coming years.

Forbes Highest Paid Electronic DJs of 2013

Esteemed business magazine and infamous list makers Forbes have put together the 13 highest paid electronic music DJs of 2013, estimating their earning from live shows, endorsements, merchandise sales, recorded music sales, and external business ventures. While last year saw Tiesto top the list, bagging $22 million USD, this year sees Scottish producer Calvin Harris more than doubling that figure and netting a total of $46 million thanks to over 100 live shows at places like the Las Vegas megaclub Hakkasan (for which he received up to $200,000 per night). He also receives revenue from his songwriting work for megastars like Rihanna, meaning he ends up taking home even more money than the likes of Jay-Z and Katy Perry. How did he do it? “The rise of dance music has been astronomical in the last three years,” he tells Forbes. “I happened to be in the right place at the right time.”

The Naked Ninja Warrior.


MV5BMTU5MTQzODY2N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzA3NjI4Nw@@._V1._SX600_SY338_The Japanese and American people have quite a few inalienable differences, but one thing that seems to be a small guilty pleasure for both countries is the ‘Ninja Warrior’ competition.  For those who have never seen it, it’s a grueling obstacle course that would test the physical limits of ANY man, woman, or child from any country, or any background on the planet.  Japanese competitors do it for honor, and American’s do it for money, but the cult following behind the show is growing by the day.  Which is why I can only assume that someone would try to complete part of the course naked… for fame.
