Snoop Dogg & Daz Dillinger Want to Bring Tha Dogg Pound's Story to TV

Tuesday April 25th, 2017 09:43:51 PM Hypebeast

Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger want to bring the legendary story of Tha Dogg Pound to national television. As Deadline reports, the iconic duo are shopping around a new series based on Tha Dogg Pound's formative days. The program is reportedly executive produced by Damien Zellous and Kenya Ware, the same pair responsible for the Dogg Pound documentary DPG Eulogy. Released back in 2005, Zellous and Ware's DPG Eulogy featured a star-studded cast that included Nate Dogg, Warren G, Kurupt, Lil 1/2 Dead, Soopafly, RBX and other high-profile west coast OGs. "Snoop and I are always being asked to assist others with their Death Row projects because we were there from the beginning, until the demise,” reads a Daz Dillinger quote from the Deadline report. “We saw Dre leave, Pac murdered, and we were forced to run the company when Suge Knight went back to prison. Our perspective is honest and unique. There are countless stories that the world has never heard about those early days.” Most notably, Tha Dogg Pound saw success with albums such as 1995's Dogg Food, which went double platinum. Kurupt and Daz Dillinger have been keeping their collaborative act alive for nearly a quarter of a century, having first appeared together as Tha Dogg Pound on the 1994 Murder Was the Case cut "What Would You Do?"

Charlotte Hornets Will Be the Only Team Wearing Jordan Brand Jerseys Next Season

Tuesday April 25th, 2017 09:14:56 PM Hypebeast

Jordan Brand will tip off the 2017-2018 NBA season by outfitting the Charlotte Hornets with gear as per Nike's new contract as the league's official outfitter. According to the Hornets' latest press release, the team will officially launch the Jordan Brand jerseys alongside the re-opening of the Hornets Fan Shop, which is slated to launch late September. Coinciding with Michael Jordan being the heart and soul of Jordan Brand as well as part owner of the team, it makes sense that the Hornets would be the sole team to don the Jumpman logo in lieu of the Swoosh. With athletes such as Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist already members of Jordan Brand, do you think this will help propel MJ's brand?

Kendrick Lamar's "HUMBLE." Beat Was Intended for Gucci Mane

Tuesday April 25th, 2017 08:22:57 PM Hypebeast

The track that ended up giving Kendrick Lamar his very first no. 1 single as a lead artist could have ended up in the hands of another one of hip-hop's reigning superstars. As revealed by Mike WiLL Made-It in a new NPR piece, Mike WiLL originally wanted to give Gucci Mane the beat for the lead DAMN. single "HUMBLE." "I made that beat [last year] when Gucci Mane was getting out of jail; I made it with him in mind," the Ear Drummers producer tells NPR's Rodney Carmichael. "I was just thinking, damn, Gucci's about to come home; it's got to be something urgent that's just going to take over the radio. And I felt like that beat was that." For whatever reason, the "HUMBLE." composition didn't end up in Guwop's arsenal, and Kendrick Lamar ended up receiving an exclusive listening session. "I was thinking, if Dot gets on this it'll be his first time being heard on some[thing] like this," Mike WiLL explains. "At the same time, it kind of has an NWA/Dr. Dre feel, an Eminem kind of feel. So I thought, let me see if Dot f**** with it. And he heard the beat and he liked it. But he was about to give me 'HUMBLE.' for [my album] Ransom 2." You can check out NPR's entire interview with Mike WiLL Made-It here. Earlier today, news emerged regarding DAMN.'s complete takeover of the Billboard Hot 100.

Tuesday April 25th, 2017 08:19:56 PM Hypebeast

After spending most of 2016 calling out "the fakes," Hackensack's beloved 6'9" rap savior (who can't dunk, btw), Marvel Alexander, serves up a slam dunk of a single today called, "Get It Off." As with most of Marvel's previous records that are witty, hardbody and humorous, "Get It off" is an anthem all about positivity, motivation and prayer as indicated in his song verse, "I'm gonna send out a prayer for all these bitches knees, honey & money had to do it for the streets." The song also serves as the lead single off Marvel's upcoming Honey & Money album. "Yea man my album wild bro honestly, not even trying to gas myself," says Marvel. Listen below and stay tuned.

Toru Kamei Talks Dior Homme Collaboration, Paintings & Advice for Emerging Artists

Tuesday April 25th, 2017 08:06:57 PM Hypebeast

Last March, Dior Homme Artistic Director Kris Van Assche enlisted Japanese artist Toru Kamei for an exclusive 2017 spring/summer collection. Kamei employed his otherworldly artwork onto a gamut of high-fashion wares, showcasing a sinister yet beautiful array of decaying flowers, skulls and elusive eyeballs that heavily references the 17th-century Dutch art genre, Vanitas. This classical style seemingly imbues the moral message that life’s greatest pleasures will inevitably be crushed into fine bits on the advent of human death. Basically, it’s a symbolic reminder to not get your hopes up on your life journey. On the other hand, this partnership is certainly hope-instilling for both Assche and Kamei fans. It's an ironic one, but it works. Kamei recently sat down with i-D to discuss his collaboration with Dior Homme, his gothic oil paintings and also relayed advice for burgeoning artists. Check out several key excerpts below and then head over to the i-D’s official website to read the full interview. When did you decide you wanted to be an artist?  I've wanted to be a painter since I was little. I didn't know if it was something I could get into as a practical profession, but I always knew I wanted to make paintings. I knew that if I was going to go to university, I wanted to study art. But, it was only once I'd graduated from university that I was forced to decide if I was going to really work at becoming an artist or not. Most of the really excellent artists get invited to show their work at galleries before they even graduate, but in my case I never did. I was kind of at a loss. That's when I first really decided that I absolutely wanted to become an artist and it was around that time that I painted this mural [a floral painting, with a strong Southeast Asian feel, on the walls of Bistro Ami in Meguro, Tokyo — where this interview took place]. Are there any motifs that you've been particularly into lately? My paintings are figurative — that is to say, I start off by depicting real objects. I don't mean to abandon that entirely, but recently I've been gradually trying to distance myself from that figurative side of things. When you listen to music, it feels like the sound works its way into your soul. Sound is made of waves, right? Color and light are made of waves too, so I think they affect our spirits in the same way. When I paint something figurative, the people who see that painting get caught up on its meaning. That's not a bad thing, but I want to try to make art that speaks directly to the senses on a more natural level, without being so restricted by "meaning." A number of your paintings are featured in the Dior Homme spring/summer 17 collection that was announced last year. How did that come about? Someone from Dior Homme got in touch with me first of all. He put me in contact with their people in Paris and I started hashing things out with the creative team over there. I don't know how Kris Van Assche came across my work, but in his official statement he said that he discovered me while doing researching floral motifs. Is there anything you'd like to say to anyone reading this article who has their sights set on becoming an artist? I believe that, as an artist, if you don't want to lose your creativity and passion you need to always stay true to yourself and keep doing the things you want to do most. If you're selling your art in the commercial sector, you really need to know what rights you'll retain over your work — so you need to choose your agents carefully. The best thing is if a gallery can support you as an artist for a long time.

T-Pain Adopts a More Aggressive Sound on "See Me Comin"

Tuesday April 25th, 2017 07:12:04 PM Hypebeast

With his long-awaited comeback album still in the works, T-Pain has dropped off an aggressive new turn-up anthem titled "See Me Comin." Produced by Dre Moon and X-Plosive, "See My Comin" finds T-Pain eschewing his usual melodies and radio-ready flows for a sound that aligns closely with the trunk-rattling street rap coming out of Atlanta. Having already dropped a high-profile remix of SahBabii's "Pull Up With Ah Stick" earlier this month, it looks like T-Pain might be rejuvenating the promotional campaign for his next major project. You can stream T-Pain's new record "See Me Comin" below. For more, read up on the Nappy Boy artist's recent appearance at Chance the Rapper's birthday party.
