Videos : The Weeknd : Can’t Feel My Face

“Can’t Feel My Face” is the Weeknd’s biggest hit ever, narrowly missing #1 for two straight weeks and enjoying the Tom Cruise treatment on Fallon last night. Abel Tesfaye first performed the song at the Apple Music launch event last month, and today he’s used Apple’s Connect service to debut the video, directed by rising genius Grant Singer. It begins as a fairly straightforward performance clip, with Tesfaye strutting his stuff on a nightclub stage in front of a bright blue curtain. Eventually, he catches fire, and an audience-wide dance party erupts along with the flames. It gives new meaning to the word “lit.” Watch below.

Articles : A Total Recap Of The Drake Vs. Meek Mill Beef

Articles : A Total Recap Of The Drake Vs. Meek Mill Beef

In case you haven’t logged on to any social media sites in the last week-plus, back on June 21, Philly’s Meek Mill unleashed a Twitter tantrum, accusing his former pal Drake of employing the services of a ghostwriter on his rap songs—including their recent collaboration “R.I.C.O.” off Meek’s album Dreams Worth More Than Money.



Meek went Twitter-crazy because it seems he was upset that Drake hadn’t promoted their song (or Meek’s album) to his 25.4 million Twitter followers. But it struck those who’ve monitored their relationship over the years as particularly odd, since Meek wouldn’t be where he is without Drizzy, who let a then-unknown Meek open for him on his 2012 “Club Paradise” tour, guested on Meek’s first single, “Amen,” and even donated $75,000 to Meek’s former high school in Philly to build a recording studio back in 2013.

Anyways, Meek’s allegations sent the rap world into a tizzy, with everyone from Rick Ross to Chris Brown to Azealia Banks weighing in on the beef. DJ Funkmaster Flex, ever the opportunist, butted into the fray, releasing a series of “reference tracks” composed by Drake collaborator Quentin Miller—evidence, it seems, that Drake used a ghostwriter on “R.I.C.O.” and a few other tracks. Miller, however, denied being Drake’s ghostwriter, penning an Essay on his Tumblr about how grateful he was when Drizzy plucked him from obscurity—he was working in a bakery—to write some songs with him, saying, “I am not and never will be a ‘ghostwriter’ for drake. Im [sic] proud to say that we’ve collaborated .. but i could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together.”

After the tweetstorm, Meek was forced to apologize to Nicki onstage—again, he’s currently one of the opening acts on her “Pinkprint Tour”—saying, “I want to give a special apology/shout-out to Nicki Minaj for my crazy ass goin’ crazy on Twitter.”

Then things began to heat up between Drizzy and Meek, with Drizzy releasing a pair of diss tracks aimed at Mr. Minaj—“Charged Up” and “Back to Back.” The latter was particularly brutal, containing several nods to Meek riding his far more famous girlfriend’s coattails: “Is that a world tour, or your girl’s tour?” Drake raps on the track, adding, “And shout to all my boss bitches wifin’ niggas!”



The song went very viral, collecting over 14 million listens at time of writing, and spawning a series of hilarious memes of Drake clowning Meek under the Twitter hashtag #BackToBack:

Late Thursday night after a good haul's worth of memes and instagram Kermit jokes, after a week in the lab, Meek finally released his rebuttal, “Wanna Know,” which the Internet greeted with a collective shrug.



Guess he had to take the L back to Philly, cept for the fact that he's getting roasted there, too.

At least he still has Nicki, right? RIGHT?

Singles : PARTYNEXTDOOR : Kehlani's Freestyle



PARTYNEXTDOOR puts his feelings on record in the very candid track “Kehlani’s Freestyle,” named after his rumored girlfriend, R&B singer Kehlani. “I can’t say I do better, no, no, no, but I act like I know better,” he sings on the bedroom banger. PND continues to get sensual (“I’ll kiss whatever but I can’t promise I’ll do better”) and raunchy (“F— me, I know you savage”) on the track.

The singer also isn’t shy about telling her the hard truth. “I’m not romantic, I’m not with the antics,” the OVO signee coos.

This isn’t the first time the crooner has written a song inspired by Kehlani. “Girl from Oakland” is a track many PND supporters believe was written for her considering that her hometown.

The freestyle comes on the heels of PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “No Feelings” featuring Travi$ Scott. Kehlani just released the visuals for “The Way,” which stars Chance the Rapper. The You Should Be Here creator shares some flirtatious moves with the Chicago rapper.

Cars : Startech Sixty8 Land Rover Defender

Cars : Startech Sixty8 Land Rover Defender

Last year, Land Rover announced plans to commemorate the end of the Defender’s long production run with three Final Edition models called Autobiography, Heritage, and Adventure, respectively. German tuner Startech also wants to pay homage to the Defender, and it has introduced a special edition model that’s billed as a final farewell to the iconic off-roader.

The custom Defender is called Sixty8, a number chosen because the very first Land Rover Series was introduced 68 years ago. It gets Startech’s 3.1 vintage design appearance package, which adds a new grille whose design is inspired by the one found on the Series 3 that was built from 1974 to 1983. The Sixty8 also gets a beefy skid plate up front, a two-tone black and gray paint job, 18-inch alloy wheels that look like period-correct steel wheels, and model-specific emblems all around.

Startech has done its best to mask the Defender’s purely utilitarian roots by sprucing up the cockpit with quilted leather upholstery on the seats and on the door panels, Alcantara on the headliner, sport seats, a new three-spoke steering wheel, and metal pedal caps. An Alpine infotainment system brings the Defender into the modern era with 3D navigation, a DVD player, a rear-view camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and an SD card slot.

The modifications don’t extend to the engine bay, meaning the Sixty8 is powered by a stock Defender-sourced 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine that makes 120 horsepower and a generous 360 foot-pounds of torque. The oil-burner spins all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and a permanent all-wheel drive system.

And as its name further implies, production of the Sixty8 will be limited to just 68 examples. On sale now worldwide, Startech’s homage to the Land Rover Defender carries a base price of €67,990 (about $75,000), while opting for the seven-seater model bumps the price tag up to €69,000 (roughly $76,300).

Gadgets : Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet

Gadgets : Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet

Modern technology and the unpredictability of the great outdoors go together like the Starks and sharp things. Just pulling out your iPhone when it’s drizzling is enough to fire up some anxiety. The latest tablet from Dell, however, likes to run toward the flames. The first tablet in the company’s Rugged series, the Latitude 12 is designed to handle bad weather, mud and dust, extreme temps, and even significant drops. While the aim here is assisting military and industrial workers, clearly this is the tablet ideal for the outdoorsman. The Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet is packed with a 11.6-inch screen that’s visible in sunlight, 512GB of storage, and it runs Windows. While it’s not cheap, we wouldn’t recommend an iPad for your next epic excursion.

Purchase here.
