The Story Of How Models Helped Hip-Hop Stars Make Videos That Made Money… Until The Game Changed (Trailer)

VIXEN. Simple, powerful title. Makes sense with coverage of Karrine Steffans (and her book) in this.

Saw this described elsewhere as exploring the ‘Video Vixen Era.’ Never thought of it as an era, but the MODELS (not the rappers or singers) in music videos that caught major buzz before Instagram… yeah, that’s a thing. Should make for some worthwhile watching. That, plus sexy women…

Melyssa Ford, Buffie The Body, Karrine Steffans and more video vixens write themselves back into Hip-Hop history in this BET Original Documentary.

10 Essentials Kyrie Irving Can’t Live Without (Video)

Kyrie listed his notebook as his first essential, right off the top. When we posted Pusha T’s list on here, did anybody hear him say ‘notebook’ as part of his Essentials list (asking… would be interesting if the basketballer said ‘notebook’ but the emcee did not… just saying)?

From his notebook full of ideas to a Rolex Sky-Dweller, here are 10 items Kyrie Irving can’t live without. Kyrie stars in “Uncle Drew,” out in theaters June 29th.

Skin Bleaching In South Africa (Video)

In the U.S. we beat our chests and proclaim, “Black Lives Matter,” “Black And Proud,” even “Wakanda Forever,” and some of our brothers & sisters in South Africa feel compelled to risk breaking the law and getting cancer by chemically lightening their skin??? Sad and shocking…

South Africa’s skin bleaching scandal: Unreported World went to South Africa where the use of controversial skin bleaching creams is on the rise in a new generation. Despite strict laws banning dangerous chemicals they’re widely available and are making people ill. Reporter Tania Rashid met a celebrity who endorses skin bleaching despite the risks and some of those that are trying to end the trade.

Australian Couple Living Totally Off The Grid (Video)

I stay amazed at what folks are doing with tiny house and Earthship living projects. This couple has maxed the off-the-grid tiny house concept for reals though. Check it out!

This tiny house is ready for anything! Completely off the grid, this tiny home on wheels generates its own solar power, collects rainwater, uses solar water heating and even generates it’s own biogas for cooking.

Paul and Annett had been living the city life, in an apartment in Sydney, Australia. A desire to lower their impact on the earth and live closer to nature led them to designing and building their own eco-friendly tiny house powered by renewable energies and moving onto a remote property outside of Byron Bay.

Tiny Houses Made Out Of Concrete Water Pipes (Video)

Yeah, the big bad wolf better not even try it. Can’t blow down a house of bricks? Try solid concrete homie!

These houses are made out of concrete water pipes.
– In The Know Innovation

I dig tiny homes and Earthships. Especially this one that one could conceivably dig and put underground. Not 100% sure how water/sewer and heating/cooling would work. And residents will likely rethink that 4th meal burrito… blowing up the toilet in that teeny tubular home has gotta mean the funk will linger a LONG time!

Indonesian Teenagers Making Fast Cash In Illegal Motorcycle Races (Documentary)

This is insane! Man, things youth do, thinking they are immortal and invincible. Plus, there’s the money. Definitely a risk vs. reward thing to do; these high-speed illegal street races. Faster & furiouser. Watch!

Motorcycles rule the streets of Indonesia. By day, the bikes zip through Jakarta, ferrying residents to and from work—but by night, the roads give way to the underground world of illegal street racing. Kids as young as 12 compete in the high-speed sprints, where riders can make a small fortune off a single race. The rewards are great, but the risks are just as high: Flying down roads at breakneck speeds, one, small mistake can cost a “speed jockey” their life.

On this episode of ‘VICE INTL,’ VICE Indonesia went inside Jakarta’s dangerous, high-stakes street racing scene. We met up with a 16-year-old rising star to hear how he got involved, talked to the cops cracking down on illegal drag racing, and checked out a sprint ourselves—watching as two teenagers faced off for more cash than most Indonesians make in a month.


Started watching this with that BDP joint “Love’s Gonna Getcha” in mind… kids like: “I make about a G a week. F**K school!”

A Look At The ‘Jet Capsule’ Mini Yacht (Video)

Talk about a Lil Yachty (ha)! This lil spaceship-looking Jet Capsule boat lets you explore the ocean. Pricey, but not as much as the full-size luxury yachts you see in the most bling-a-licious music visuals and such. Who needs all that and the tab anyway.

Forget a yacht — and say hello to the Jet Capsule.
