Jay Z may have briefly forgotten about Tidal in his court appearance recently, but with the Tidal X:1020 festival approaching, it should be the main thing on his mind this week.

Jay Z Says TIDAL Reached 1 Million Subscribers, Announces Celebratory Event Sep 29, 2015 at 12:50pm
TIDAL has received its fair share (if not more than) of backlash since it's inception back in March. There were a few good reasons for the criticisms of TIDAL, namely the fact that it seemed to be co-owned entirely by artists who are already extremely wealthy (and we're still wondering what the deal is with all the smaller artists?).

Today, September 28, officially marks the 2nd annual celebration of Durag History Week, perhaps the most important holiday ever created by Twitter.

Below, we have featured some of the most iconic moments in Durag History, both good and bad, dating back to Biblical times.

In July, Marvel began remixing our favorite album covers, and they've since kept it going, making good on their mission to place their superheroes and comic book characters into just about every piece of classic hip-hop cover art. Normally, reworking a 2Pac record cover, as they've done today, would be blasphemy, but the artists at Marvel are always respectful of their source material, and they've reminded us of some classics that we often forget to revisit.

Schopenhauer once said, "talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see." Millions of us bumped "Niggas in Paris," the most bump-able/meme-able track from Kanye West and Jay Z's Watch the Throne, but nobody thought to transform it into a picture book. Except one person.
