Coming Soon: The MSC WorldClass Fleet, The Largest Ocean Cruise Ships Ever (Video)

Insane! This is like the Titanic launch on steroids. Three times the size and almost as much worldwide fanfare. When MSC Cruises’ World Class fleet of super duper sized oceanliners are built (scheduled debut in 2022), they will measure a 1,082 feet by 154 feet. The ships will be able to spend more time at sea without having to refuel, have more amenities aboard, and house more guests than any cruiseliner on the waters now.

VICE: The Devil Tried To Divide Us (Documentary)

There are REASONS we have rules for wars… that nations declare war, seek coalitions before they do, and convene war crimes courts after. The ongoing tragedy in the Central African Republic though… Damn. There have been no rules, no understandings, and countless crimes against humanity… for DECADES… and it has just gotten worse! VICE News is taking us there. They have to, so we can try to understand. Watch above.

The Central African Republic’s capital of Bangui has seen its Muslim population drop from 130,000 to under 1,000 during the past few months. Over the past year, thousands across CAR have been killed, and nearly a million have been displaced. The United Nations recently stated that the entire Western half of the country has now been cleansed of Muslims…

VICE: Ground Zero – Mali (Video)

This is the story of the Battle for Gao, the biggest city in Northern Mali. The French used to rule the region. They left. Militant extremist factions like Al Qaeda moved in… banned music and booze and basically anything they call “sin” and instituted HARSH punishments for violators and martial law. It’s Jihad on steroids on steroids. It’s just wrong. The Malian-French alliance forces are trying to stop this; but can they? VICE went over to give us an up close look… and some answers.

It’s basically the first legitimate combat footage to come out of the war there…[I]nsurgents came to us: they slipped into Gao overnight on small boats and used suicide bombers to blast their way into government buildings. The French left the fighting to the Malian army for most of the day as a test of their combat abilities. Malian soldiers, while very brave, are almost completely untrained and had great difficulty fighting less than a dozen jihadists, some of whom were children. They fired wild bursts of automatic fire everywhere, destroying the city center. The Malians soon ran out of ammunition and had to wait for the French to show up and save the day.


More video after the jump. Spoiler alert: No one wins…

Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) Brings Out Kanye West At His Show In Paris (Video)

I’m doing better but I’m still trying to get used to Mos Def’s official name change to Yasiin Bey. Often when I bump into people on the street anywhere in the world & we bring him up I find people still haven’t made the connection yet as well. Once they do make that connection then they already know that Yasiin Bey will represent on stage no matter where he is on the planet. Check out this recent footage spotted at HHNM of the mighty Yasiin Bey rocking in Paris with Robert Glasper & as a special treat he brings out Kanye West. Seems like it was a dope night in Paahh’reee……

SupaFuh x Nai – “Mauvais Esprit”

You know Quiet Dawn, right? The super-smooth French producer from Paris. If not, don’t worry. We got you. Click here to hear an earlier Quiet Dawn post. Well, in short, as far as jazzy grooves go, Quiet Dawn has been making noise. It follows that – in taking jazz into Hip-Hop – he would only mess with the best. For this foray, he brings producer SupaFuh and lyricist Nai aboard. Warning: French-spittin’ writtens ahead. Might have to take a tip from Jay Force and get a passport. Head to Europe. See what Hip-Hop worldwide is all about! But for now…take a listen to “Mauvais Esprit” (English translation: “Evil Spirit”) here! You’re welcome.



R&B/Jazz: Quiet Dawn – “Sunshine”

Quiet Dawn is a producer, arranger, and radio host from Paris, France. He does music in the Hip-Hop, Nu Jazz, Nu Soul, Broken Beat, and Deep House genres. This track caught my ear right from the click – a smooth instrumental melody that made me nod and bob. Get down to “Sunshine” however you do when a mellow groove comes through your speakers.
