POLL: Which Lifestyle Supreme Accessory Are You Most Hyped About?

Thursday August 17th, 2017 04:00:41 AM Hypebeast

After weeks of teasers, including a cryptic “Crop Fields” video and an Instagram post featuring a jacket emblazoned with artwork by Mark Gonzales, the holiest of hyped labels, Supreme, has finally unveiled its full 2017 fall/winter range of goods. Per usual, a furor was ignited among the blogosphere as we scrolled through, clicked and questioned nearly every item the New York City-based streetwear magnate churned out this season. In addition to its broad array of hats, tees, tops, sweats, pants and jackets, Supreme didn't disappoint in delivering a heaping batch of accessories, some more unusual than others (naturally). Apparel basics and jewelry aside, the real collector's grails go to the label's now-legendary lifestyle offerings. Remember last season's Coleman dirt bike, money gun, jigsaw puzzle, ping-pong table and NYC MetroCard (which we're pretty sure MTA workers are still traumatized over)? OK, so maybe this season's mix is a tad less extravagant, but it's still going to set social media ablaze nonetheless. From cops that'll probably deplete this month's paycheck (Fender guitar, Artek Aalto 400 chair) to semi-pragmatic home goods (chopsticks, ashtray, sake set, throw blanket) to downright head-scratchers (collapsible shovel, cash paperweight, carry knife, safety sac), fans lucky enough to scoop up anything from tomorrow's drop are surely going to flaunt some serious jawn-envy on Instagram. Which lifestyle accessory are you most hyped about? Let us know via the poll below. The entire collection is set to release on August 17 at Supreme’s NY, LA and European locations, while Japan should see an August 19 release. Supreme’s online store is expected to release everything on August 24.

Thursday August 17th, 2017 03:37:45 AM Hypebeast

Tyler, The Creator's new Flower Boy album is riddled with deeper messages, and one that fans are having trouble interpreting is the line "I been kissing white boys since 2004" on the track "I Ain't Got Time." Tyler also casually mentioned in an interview with Know Wave's Koopz Tunes radio show on Monday that he had a boyfriend in his teenage years, alluding to his true sexual identity. "I had a boyfriend when I was fifteen in f--king Hawthorne, if that's not open minded, I don't know what is," said Tyler.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving's Trade Drama Gets Turned Into a Parody of Eminem's "Stan"

Thursday August 17th, 2017 02:53:02 AM Hypebeast

The Kyrie Irving-LeBron James drama continues to be a topic of much discussion in the world of basketball. In mid-July, four-time NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving made an abrupt request to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers while unfollowing LeBron James on Instagram in the process. Deciding to chime in on the situation is AOK, creating a parody of the Cleveland Cavaliers duo's drama using Eminem’s “Stan” as the setting. In the video, Irving desperately attempts to contact James following his trade request. Check it out above and read the lyrics below. Also be sure to check out our recent interview with Kyrie Irving during his trip in Tokyo. LeBron is mad I’m wondering why I asked for a trade at all. I scored 40 in the Finals, But I can’t please LeBron And even if I could I’m not Chris Paul With their picture on a boat It reminds me that it’s not my Cavs, LeBron runs the Cavs. Dear Bron, I wrote you, but you only subtweetin’ I left my cell, email and my address in Cleveland I sent two letters to Dan Gilbert, you must not have got ’em He probably fell off the side of the flat Earth or somethin’ Sometimes trade requests become too sloppy once they’re public But anyways, fuck it, what’s been up, man? How’s our teammates? I just wanted to be the man, and a chance to lead— If I win a MVP, guess who I’ma call? I’ma call Kobe. I read about Derrick Rose too, I’m sorry He signed for the vet min cuz every team didn’t want him I know you probably hear this every day, but I’m your best teammate I even hit The Shot after you made The Block on Andre. I got a room full of our posters and our Fatheads, man I like the ‘ship we won in ‘16 too, that ‘ship was phat Anyways, I hope you get this, man, hit me back Just to chat, truly yours, your best teammate, this is Kyrie. LeBron is mad I’m wondering why I asked for a trade at all. I scored 57 against the Spurs, But I can’t please LeBron And even if I could he won’t commit to stay. He’s leaving for L.A. It reminds me that it’s not our Cavs, never was our Cavs. Dear Mr. I’m-Too-Good-to-Commit-To-Cleveland, This’ll be the last message I send before I’m leaving. It’s been three seasons, I’m second fiddle—do I deserve it? I know you got my last email I even cc’d Brian Windhorst So this is my message I’m sendin’ you, I hope you get it I’m in the gym right now, I’m averagin’ 30 next season Hey Bron, I wanna go to the West too, you dare me to go? Stephen A. Smith said if you saw me, it’d come to blows. And all I wanted was a chance to handle the ball I hope you know I ripped all of our Fatheads off the wall I loved you, Bron, we coulda played together—think about it! It’s ruined now, I hope you don’t win and you dream about it And when you leave I hope you lose And you scream about it; I hope your conscience eats at you ‘Cause you can’t win without me See Bron—shut up, Dan! I’m tryin’ to talk Hey Bron, that’s Dan Gilbert screamin’ in the hall But I didn’t stab his back, I let him know first, see I ain’t like you. ‘Cause if he trades me, he’ll get a good player back too Well gotta go, I’m almost off the Cavs now Oh shit, I forgot, how am I supposed to win a title now? LeBron is mad I’m wondering why I asked for a trade at all. I haven’t even hit my prime, And I wanna leave LeBron But even if I stayed, he’s on the decline. He’s almost 33 years old. It reminds me that it’s not our Cavs, Durant ruined the Cavs.
