Snoop Dogg – “Trash Bags” (Live Performance)

These guys know how to mix fun and serious business. Jimmy Kimmel and Snoop Dogg doing the damn thing on the tube again; not ‘roasting’ on Comedy Central, rather with Snoop performing “Trash Bags” on Jimmel Kimmel Live.

And the re-THICK-ulous dancing girls on stage made it an extra ‘special’ night on stage. But for something really special, hit the jump (more footage of Snoop’s time with Kimmel).

Eye Candy: Kristyn Alexis Tries Models Swimsuits Like Only She Can (Video)

Whew! Kristyn Alexis keeps ’em coming *wink*

(Wait, it’s noon, right? Good. Hahahaaaa!)

So, sometimes I wonder if Kristyn Alexis knows just how sexy she is. Damn! Her understated descriptions of the swimsuits she is wearing – using terms like ‘cool’ and ‘super cute’ – don’t go anywhere near far enough in describing how HOT the outfits (or the model) are. Then again, she is ‘promoting’ the product to buyers. Then again, again, many of those buyers HAVE to be clicking product into their shopping carts because of how sexy Kristyn (with her THICK azz) is rocking swimsuits like these.

Eye Candy: Kristyn Alexis’ Sexy Swimwear Review (Video)

Ohhhh wowwww! Should have known that the video would be en fuego when Kristyn Alexis kept stressing that the swimsuits she would be trying on would be sexy. It was like she was warning me… preparing me.

But there was no prep for this. HOT!

(That French Bulldog is hilarious though. Looked a bit put off from being put off the couch for this shoot; then bored to sleep later in the clip. Hahaaaa!)

‘Sneaker Shopping’ With Shoe & Microphone Fiend Joey Bada$$ (Video)

His dream shoe might be the All Day I Dream About… ya know. But you gotta dream about a possible dream collaboration between Joey Bad and ADIDAS. If you are into the shoe game heavy, that is.

Joey Bada$$ goes Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma at Alumni in Brooklyn, and talks growing up as a Jordan head and the mix of sneakers with politics.

Interesting. Joey comments on the former First Daughter from last administration rocking a Pro Era tee. Then he comments on Under Armour’s honcho stumping for the current President, Donald Trump. Kinda makes Joey Bada$$ a two-term political pundit. When it comes to apparel maybe. Maybe.

Ha! Watch and learn a bit Joey’s aspirations (non-political, basketball), choices in kicks (including a possible pick for his pops) and more.

Fashion/Technology: The Tuibo Cycling Vest & Assistant (Video)

Know how we’re supposed to treat riders on bicycles like any other vehicle on the road? Sure. Can do. Except when we cannot see them coming up from behind. And when we cannot see them at all at night (because all neon ain’t fashionwear). And when we don’t know what turn they plan to make in a sec, because they have to maintain balance and handlebar grip before making it.

But yeah, besides all that going against the healthy/green-minded commuters with us out in these streets… sure, we can share the road.

Alright. Cynical much? Yeah, you got us. But if you cycle much, Tuibo has got you. Got your back. Literally. Check it out!

Designed to be your companion along the way, Tuibo is a smart vest made to improve visibility with it’s built-in flexible LED displays for braking and turning lights, also with it’s head light and horn. Tuibo’s fully washable and has hidden expandable sides to cover you backpack, all embedded in a subtle design.

These High Tech Tattoos Can Conduct Electricity (Video)

Yoooo! So now we can join the “Justice League” as a Cyborg without all the getting mangled in a near-life-ending accident and being put back together by a dad mad cyber-scientist? Could be cool…

The newest activity tracking device may not even be a device. Austin-based software design firm Chaotic Moon Studios has created a concept prototype for tech tattoos, a circuit that you can wear on the surface of your skin. The components are attached with conductive paint, and can monitor health and activity stats, authorize charges for purchases and many other potential applications.

Yeah, while I’m not a tat guy, some folks who are might get into this. And that Justice League thing… I might go with being a Six-Million Dollar Man or one of the Bionic Six (Google/YouTube it, old school rules).

Afro-Brazilian Hair Stories – Parts 1 & 2 (Video)

All jabs and jokes at the Chris Rock ‘Hair’ Movie aside, Black women’s hair is serious biz – monetary and cultural. This docu-miniseries from Essence mag is focusing on the cultural side. The women are beautiful; Afro-Brizilian beautiful. But some of the stories and struggles they share… not so.

While producing our August global issue in Rio de Janeiro, we interviewed women who are celebrating the “Afro” in Afro-Brazilian. However, their hair journey has been a battle of personal, family and social acceptance because of Brazil’s complicated history with race and identity.

Lord Jamar is a VladTV mainstay, known to get live for the camera. Now, in front of a live audience on camera, you think he’s gonna change up? Um… the answer is heeelllllll no! Dude starts this clip even keel but goes raw soon enough.

Earlier this year Lord Jamar sat down for a VladTV interview in front of a live audience and he remembered back to a time in rap when it wasn’t cool to wear big chains or be flashy. The Brand Nubian rapper explained that he stopped wearing jewelry because he didn’t want to promote drug culture, adding, “We wanted to be on some positive s***.”

Later, the conversation shifts to politics, as Lord Jamar shares his thoughts on why he believes Hillary Clinton was promised a presidency back when the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal hit. To hear more of what he had to say on the situation, including why he believes Trump is doing good whether he wins or loses, hit the above clip.
