Continuing their Made In USA “Distinct Collection” with themes inspired by distinctly American subjects, New Balance presents the Mid-Century Modern pack this fall.

The New Balance Mid-Century Modern pack and posters will be available at finer retailers globally beginning August 1st.

A$AP Rocky sat down for a lengthy interview as part of the Red Bull Academy back in May, but it was not until today full video of the lecture made it to the web. During the hour and a half discussion, he touched on dozens of topics, but one of the most controversial si his take on the rap scene in Atlanta.
"Rakim admitted he feels like the dopest music right now is coming out of the A, but didn’t hesitate to share his opinion most of the rappers there sound the same, unlike the variety of artists and styles from NYC. If we’re gonna be honest, some of the dopest music is coming out of Atlanta right now, but all them n****s sound the same,” he said. “Here [New York City] there’s not as much dope s*** – well it is, but a lot of people don’t see it the way I see it. [New York rappers] don’t sound alike. Everybody got their own different thing going on… Them Atlanta dudes – it’s a few dudes that’s doing their own thing that’s killing it. I’m not saying all Atlanta rappers sound the same, but for the most part, majority. They all kind of have similar cadences, flows and delivery. They even recycle the same lyrics from each other.” Rocky then claimed he is not trying to diss the scene, but doesn’t understand why some Atlanta artists are interested in copying others. The At.Long.Last.A$AP rapper then compared Future’s “S***” to Que’s “OG Bobby Johnson.” I gotta just say it. This ain’t dissing nobody, but I don’t understand how Future can make a song like “S***.” Then this n****, I forget his name… You make “OG Bobby Johnson” and it’s like, “head shot, head shot, hit them with the…” It’s the same thing Future’s saying. And we allowed that… Not taking nothing away from Que – I know his name – I just feel like, come on. I like the song. If you ask me if I like the song – yes, it’s a dope song… and this sounds like I’m downplaying this guy. I don’t even know him, so I don’t got nothing against him. I’m just telling the situation. I feel like it’s okay to be inspired, but you can’t bite off contemporary artists that’s in your same league.”
Drake makes his return with the first official video for Energy directed by Fleur & Manu. Drake decided to premiere the visual through Apple Music, who he recently partnered with for their new streaming service.

In a conversation with the U.K.’s Sunday Times, he spoke out about comparisons to his peers including Frank Ocean, who he ran into at a London hotel bar during the interview.
“We’re, er, cordial. I wouldn’t say we were friends,” says Miguel, who lost the Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album to Ocean’s Channel ORANGE in February 2013. While the rest of the crowd at Staples Center stood for Ocean, Miguel remained seated.
To be completely honest—and no disrespect to anyone—I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around,” declares Miguel, whose third album Wildheart dropped last month.
When asked about other R&B singers like Ocean and The Weeknd, Miguel suggests that he will outlast them. “It’s interesting,” he explains, “but we’ll see who’s in it for the long haul. It’s like a marathon, you know.”

One of my favorite bloggers of all time Necole Bitchie wrote a long post today on her site about her ending her celebrity gossip site NecoleBitchie.com in order for her to advance to new heights in her career and to embark on a new journey, which I commend her for. I remember back in the day I used to check on NecoleBitchie.com everyday when I was in high school and college, her site was always on point each day and she hit you with them exclusive stories real quick! As of late I find myself not frequenting the site as I usually do because of my busy schedule but today out of all days when I go looking for updates, I see a long letter from Necole :-( I'm gonna miss this site, can't even lie about it, and Necole ran the gossip blog game forreal! I can't see any other celebrity blogger taking her reign even if she's not prevelant in that field anymore. Necole Bitchie put black girls on the map in a positive way and I really know in my heart that whatever route she chooses, she will excel! - Joycelynn Okezie
