It was an unequivocal banger, and the excited tension of hearing a new Yeezy track was amplified by the performance, which featured a giant entourage of mostly black men bopping and even getting low (on cue!) behind him.

Kanye Is Adamant that Amber Rose Is Definitely a Bigger Whore than Kim

Kanye, Sia, and Vic Mensa Get Weird on SNL's 40th Anniversary Show

Sunday night's three-and-a-half-hour long Saturday Night Live anniversary show was, in many ways, an exercise in convention: the resurrection of 40-year-old jokes for old time's sake, no matter how awkwardly they fit in 2015. (Thinking most particularly of Dan Aykroyd's bass-o-matic bit—who even uses blenders… » 2/16/15 10:50am 2/16/15 10:50am

Rihanna, Paul & Kanye Wear Matching Power Suits for 'FourFiveSeconds'

This is Rihanna, Kanye West and—help me, name escaping me... ah, Paul McCartney—performing their collaboration "FourFiveSeconds" at the Grammys.

Rihmergency: It's Rihanna's Slow Twerking Video for 'FourFiveSeconds'


It's here. Fashion geniuses Inez + Vinoodh directed this clip for Rih, Ye, and The Sir's new trio jam, which is why it looks like an outtake from W magazine. But it's also appropriately intimate for this song and the way all your homegirls are relating to it, which is alternately by singing along passionately in the… » 2/03/15 9:30am 2/03/15 9:30am

APC Designer: I Can Call My Clothes 'N*gga'; I'm Friends With Kanye

The Timberland work boot has never truly gone out of style, whether with the physical laborers who actually utilize its waterproof outer, steel-or-soft toe, and ankle support in their day-to-day; or with the rappers and rap-lovers who popularized them as everyday streetwear more than 20 years ago.
