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.

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.

Kanye West’s Yeezy Boost line for Adidas has taken sneaker hype to new levels, mostly due to extremely limited release quantities.

"FACTS" Or Fiction? Breaking Down Kanye West's New Track
"FACTS" Or Fiction? Breaking Down Kanye West's New Track Jan 4, 2016 at 05:50pm
Kanye West couldn't have began 2016 any more differently than 2015, with the only similarity between "Only One" and "FACTS" being their midnight January 1st releases.
