Too $hort Gets Off Easy In DUI Case

Veteran hip hop star Too $hort has reportedly cut a deal with prosecutors to avoid doing time for running away from the police during a DUI arrest earlier this year. The rapper only received three years probation as opposed to being sentenced to any jail time.

$hort pleaded no contest to driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher and all other charges were dismissed.

Too $hort’s lawyer was able to get him the deal despite the fact that the Bay Area native has multiple prior DUI arrests. In addition to his three years of probation, Too $hort has to pay fines and attend alcohol education classes.

Freshness Conversations: Lee Holman, Vice President of Nike Apparel Design

“Obsessive Perfectionists” isn’t a new psychoanalytical term, rather it is a general description for designers at Nike. You can easily spot them on the company’s Beaverton campus. They are usually that dreary bunch in the cafeteria, never content about any designs, be that Nike’s own or competitors’. But what you won’t find them doing is sitting around complaining. Instead, they’re constantly hurrying between workstations, the Innovation Kitchen, new material suppliers, and production facilities oversea, all for the process of discovering that “next best thing.” Such was the route that led to the new Nike Tech Fleece, the Swoosh’s rendition of a sports staple.

Before embarking on the task to re-imagine an entire sportswear category, designers at Nike Sportswear simplified their mission into three essentials – Fit, Feel, and

Justin Timberlake’s Album Without Drake Feature Would’ve Been ‘A Travesty’

By Maurice Bobb

It was already a given that Jay-Z would be a guest feature on Justin Timberlake’s upcoming sequel to The 20/20 Experience, but the “Suit & Tie” crooner finally let the cat out of the bag: the other rapper to make the cut is Drake.

“Drake being so vocal about appreciating me as an artist and I appreciate him as an artist,” JT said when he dropped by Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning.” “So when we met up in person, I said man we should do something at some point, it would be a travesty if we don’t.”

And while that conversation led to an official collaboration, a similar conversation with Kanye West  has yet to yield the same results.

“I said that to Kanye a million times, as a matter of fact, I said it again at the awards,” he said. “I told him ‘I f— with you’ in a way you probably don’t even understand I get what you do and we’ve never worked together. So I don’t know that he fully understands what it is that I can do. As a matter of fact, Jay said the same thing. I hope something spawns out of that.”

Given that Justin and Yeezy had beef over his collab with Hov, it would seem that “something” is out of reach, but since they squashed their “beef” and the fact that the former N’SYNC frontman thought the “Blood On The Leaves” MC’s VMA performance was “beautiful.”

“He said the exact perfect thing, which was ‘Well, the best way I know how to do that is just for us to sit down and just play music and I said exactly,’” he said. “I love ‘Ye so I feel like I understand what he’s doing. I love Yeezus, I love the album. I think he’s ahead of a lot, especially in his genre. You have to at least listen and give him the benefit of the doubt because he’s earned that and I get it.”

Outside of a desire to work with the G.O.O.D. Music CEO, Justin talked about how writing for Beyoncé led to his collaborations with his Legends of the Summer tour partner and how much influence Michael Jackson had on his career.

“To even be mentioned in the shadow of the greatest of all time, it’s an honor,” he said. “When I was a kid, I used to run around the house singing Jackson 5 songs. What Michael did for performing in general. People fell in love with Michael because he did something to your blood when he performed on stage. So if you’re gonna give me the Michael Jackson Vanguard, I’m gonna take my opportunity.”

One quick gander at Twitter during the 2013 VMAs is proof that Justin took that opportunity and ran with it. His nearly 15-minute performance that covered his illustrious career was the highlight of the show.

“My two favorite things to do at a show is the make people go like ‘Damn!’ and to make people be like ‘you know what, I’m having fun’.”

A$AP Rocky Talks About Rihanna Photos

Rapper A$AP Rocky and pop superstar Rihanna were spotted in what appeared to be an intimate moment in New York City last week, but it was widely reported that they weren’t hooking up–they were only shooting a scene from a music video. Despite the presence of cameras and extras, Rocky recently denied that claim.

“Nah, we weren’t filming no video, we were just chillin,’” Rocky told MTV.

“People crazy,” he added. “You know people say a lot.”

Rocky was at the VMAs with his girlfriend, model Chanel Iman, so it doesn’t look like there’s any trouble. But these conflicting stories are very interesting.

Pusha T ft. Chris Brown – “Sweet Serenade” [LISTEN]

Pusha T drops “Sweet Serenade,” featuring Chris Brown, the latest single from his forthcoming My Name Is My Name album. 

That first verse finds Push dialing back his bars but he follows up with the rewind worthy material we’ve come to expect on verses two and three. Breezy holds things down with a smoothly delivered hook to complete this VA connection. As for the haunting beat with the shuffling drums, it was surprisingly produced by Swizz Beatz.

At this very moment, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper is conduction a Q&A via Twitter. When asked when we will finally see his new album’s track list, he answered/tweeted, “*Idk @kanyewest is handling the marketing, I just rap*”

My Name Is My Name is now due in stores October 8. Listen to “Sweet Serenade” below.
