Blatant Rip Off Of Yeezy Boost 750 Created By Zara
Blatant Rip Off Of Yeezy Boost 750 Created By Zara Jan 20, 2016 at 04:51pm
Kanye West’s Yeezy Boost line is wildly successful, so imitators were soon to follow no matter what. However, we couldn’t have expected this blatant of an imitation. The anti-Yeezy shown here have the same super high top cut, lacing style and ribbed midsole. The overall silhouette is also undeniably recognizable. Unlike the most recent Yeezy Boost 750, this one at least has a contrasting midsole color and different material on the toe cap. The two sneakers' similarities far outweigh the difference, however.
Drake Responds To Kanye West Sampling His Uncle On "No More Parties In L.A."
Drake Responds To Kanye West Sampling His Uncle On "No More Parties In L.A." Jan 19, 2016 at 06:09pm
Kanye West's "No More Parties In L.A." was a pretty exhilarating first listen, but there's one cool Easter egg on the track that wasn't immediately evident (unless you happen to be the world's biggest Drake stan). Right after Ye's memorable call-out of that cousin who stole his laptop, a wild sample appears -- which is nothing out of the ordinary for Yeezy, but that sample just happens to be the work of Larry Graham, otherwise known as Drake's uncle.

Another week, and the rap game ain't slowing down. TDE proved its youngest member is one of its most prized assets, Tyga finally dropped his mixtape, Mike Will seriously upped the expectations for Ransom 2, and a random Thugger leak managed to crack the Top 5. And that was before the weekend...

Lil Wayne Throws Mic, Walks Off Stage After "10 Second" Performance In Milan
Lil Wayne Throws Mic, Walks Off Stage After "10 Second" Performance In Milan Jan 17, 2016 at 01:11pm
Lil Wayne's performance at Milan fashion week ended very abruptly Saturday night, as the rapper left the stage after performing only a few bars of his Carter 4 hit, "John". Footage from the event shows Weezy asking the crowd to put their hands up, before turning to side-stage and saying "“Is this what you want me to do? You serious?". After what Milan journalist Laura Rysman says was a mere 10 seconds, Wayne cut his first song, throwing his mic in the air and walking off in a huff.
Kanye West Has 90 Bars Written For His Track With Kendrick Lamar
Kanye West Has 90 Bars Written For His Track With Kendrick Lamar Jan 17, 2016 at 10:55am
2016 has been a pretty crazy time for Kanye West fans. The year kicked off with "FACTS," a divisive track that instilled doubt in some listeners, but was later redeemed by a release date for SWISH and a new weekly series of music. "New Friends" was the second release of this nature, and it got a largely positive response, but when the time to release another track rolled around a week later, there was no sign of it.
Everything You Need To Know About Ian Connor
Everything You Need To Know About Ian Connor Jan 15, 2016 at 09:22am
Standing 5'5" and skinny as a rail, Connor is not your typical model ("I'm literally shaped like a 10 year old boy"). Indeed, the 22-year-old also moonlights as a creative consultant, fashion guru, social media maven, member of A$AP Mob, roommate of Fredo Santana. With a rare existential confidence, a true DGAF attitude that rivals that of Tyler, the Creator, he has amassed a massive social following and earned consultant work with everyone from Kanye West to Kylie Jenner. Clearly, the self-described King of the Youth is doing something right.

Kanye West has had some nasty clashes with the paparazzi in the past, but today in LAX he was all smiles, answering most every question an Australian TMZ reporter threw his way. When asked if he would sign with Nike, the company he left in late 2013 in favor of adidas, for $1 billion, he responded, "It's not about the money, man. It's about the respect, the communication," ultimately revealing that no offer would be large enough to woo him back to the swoosh.

2016 is looking like it's gonna be a fast year. Yeezy decided to become the year's frontrunner after jumping over Jumpman on New Year's Eve, and somehow, he outdid himself the next week, dropping a two-in-one package that had one of the craziest debuts in HNHH history -- and continues to do huge numbers.

Kanye West has a new album coming out in a month, and seeing as the vocals for Yeezus were allegedly recorded days before the album was turned in, we assume this is crunch time for 'Ye.Judging by his tweet from last night, West is counting on his collaborators to be on call throughout this chaotic process. "I have no interest in working with anyone who is too important or too good or too traditional to take a call at 3am," he wrote.

After taking a break over the holidays/daze, we've returned with Staff Picks in all it's playlist glory. Although music in general slowed down over the holiday season, things seem to be picking back up this week, as is reflected in the Staff Picks playlist. Of course, Kanye West stole the show with his release of "Real Friends/No More Parties In L.A.," however he made us work for it, uploading and then deleting the song from his SoundCloud multiple times through out the day. We made it, though.
