Kanye West – “Bed Yeezy Season 5” feat. The-Dream

So. You got 17 minutes to check out some new music from Kanye West. He did something with The-Dream, flipping a track orginally done up by The-Dream (“Bed”, yeah the J. Holiday jawn)… calling it “Bed Yeezy Season 5”… and it’s out there but in there at the same time. Hard to explain, which makes it par for the Kanye course, right?

Think of this as an extended play for some extended play at the crib. Call bae. Test drive the track.

The World’s First Male Sex Doll (Video)

Ooookay. VICE’s Karley Sciortino is taking girls “playing with dolls” to a whole other level! Getting mighty cozy with the concept in this documentary episode exploring the making of male sex dolls for women.

Because, you know, gender equality.

(Hahaa! Karley, though. Got an undeniable sexy about her, right? Just saying, she probably does not need to go the doll route. Surely there is a real ‘plaything’ out here that will gladly play with her… Errr… Just watch.)

Black Gandhiii – “Views From The Death Star” (Prod. By John The Third)

This “Views From The Death Star” (prodduced by John The Third) is some of that off-center ‘ish that will catch my ear flying around in the Soundcloud. Check out New Orleans’ own Black Gandhiii. Not much online in the way of background/info on the artist. Self-described as…

A kid with an open mind. Who’s struggle defines him, also allowing him to create great music. Telling his story and the truth about life. Follow the movement and stay tuned…

So, there’s that. Also, Black Gandhiii is down with Lamaj Records out of Houston, Texas (USA).

The Boyfriend Experience: In Japan, A Woman Can Even Rent A Man That Will Come Sit & Cry With Her (Video)

So the ‘Boyfriends For Hire’ business is still strong in Japan. We hipped y’all to it over three years ago on here. This is a next step. Sure, you can rent a boyfriend in Japan, but what about the elements expected of a longer-term bond? What if Japanese women could experience feelings usually borne of deeper bonds… without the being bound to a partner part? And do it a la carte? Would that be worth something?

Yeah, about $65 per hour. Yep, at least that’s what a ‘Handsome Weeping Boy’ will cost in Japan.


(Full disclosure: VICE finds some cute correspondents. Like this Karley Sciortino. Them legs, too. Just saying.)

Woman Undergoes Procedure To Become A Sex Doll (Video)

Actually… that music wasn’t creepy enough! You know how folks (okay, dudes mainly) get sex dolls, right? How they get them and use them as though they were women.

Okay, okay! The dolls are their women, and they have sex with them. There it’s out there.

As hard as that was to say, wrap your head and vocal chords around this: A woman undergoing a procedure to become a sex doll!! Aw hellllll no! That’s what we say. And yet, there she is above doing it!

Alternative/Hip-Hop: Jaden Smith – “Fallen” (Video)

Jaden Smith with visuals for “Fallen” off his forthcoming “Syre” project. Pretty damn dope. An existential aural experience in audiovisual form. If you find a way to hate on the young ‘Syre’ of The Fresh Prince after this, get a checkup; there’s hate in your heart.

Paris will be the first city with flying taxis.
– Discovery News

Seems like they are just hydrofoiling in this clip though. Still, cool tech.

Jhenè Aiko Speaks On Love, Loss, Diversity And Family (Video)


Artists should be open in some way that gets fans open about them; but some don’t open up a lot. Others go full Yeezy with the openness. Ha!

But Jhenè Aiko is sharing in this documentary at a level that falls comfortably within that range; even when talking about the ‘uncomfortable’ aspects of her life and career. Watch this engaging, albeit short, documentary feature on Jhenè.


How Do ‘Real’ Doctors Feel About Chiropractors? (Video)

Aha! Thought the doc was gonna take shots or throw shade, huh? Actually, there is something very much aligned (get it?) with Hip-Hop culture in what the doc expresses about chiropractors’ place in the spine care spectrum: As long as (1) you are seeing a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL that is (2) providing VALUE and/or relief, it’s all good. In the lingo, if they have nice skills and delivery it’s all good!

NYU Langone Spine Center Co-Director Dr. Anthony Frempong-Boadu sat down with Tech Insider to talk about spine health, and gave his honest opinion about working with chiropractors. As with choosing any doctor, it’s smart to do your research and find someone who can truly help you.

Weed Infused Wine (Video)

This line of Mary Jane Wines though… wooo… the promise of a glass of high-class high. Some conjecture as to whether the hemp-infused wine will actually make you flyyyy robinnn flyyyy, but the prospect is fun to consider, isn’t it. Check it out and see if it’s something you and your friends can go five on.

(Normally the ‘Mary Jane’ comes in a sack, right? So, would this come in some kind of Crown Royal bag? Some folks transport in that… we’ve heard *wink*)

Illa J – “Spiders” (Prod. By Calvin Valentine)

Whatever Illa J hit before lacing this Calvin Valentine beat… Wait, Valentine probably got some of that medicine, too. Okay, so whatever BOTH of them did to get this “Spiders” crawling on the skin feel… It’s dope, but a helluva tradeoff. “Spiders” …yeesh!! Enjoy the product though (um…we’re talking about the music in this case…haha).

Spiders is an upbeat trippy psycadelic Hip-Hop tune. From Illa J’s visual lyrics to Calvin’s psychedelic synths and banging drums you will be hypnotized and really feeling you have “spiders crawling on your skin”. Showcasing his singing as well as his songwriting, Illa J keeps moving towards showing that he is not just a rapper.
