News : Pusha T President of G.O.O.D Music

News : Pusha T President of G.O.O.D Music

It was just last week that we were watching G.O.O.D. Music president Che Pope detail everything we wanted to know about the music industry from Yeezus and beyond in his lecture at Red Bull's Music Academy Paris. Today, his reign comes to an end as Pusha T is named the new president of Kanye's famous label as reported by Billboard.

The conversation began when Kanye called Pusha up and the deal came together from there since both artists share a similar outlook. "I think that artistically, me and Kanye have the same vision... I just look at capitalizing on everything that I feel like G.O.O.D. Music brings to the music industry, our following, and the culture," Pusha explained of his new role. He goes on to say the next five months will be about "really executing all the different avenues of music, art, culture and fashion as well." He even teases that another Cruel Summer compilation album could be coming.

Gear : ColorWare + Sennheiser HD 800 Carbon

Carbon fiber is a man-made material that has revolutionized the aerospace industry, auto racing and artificial limbs. Although carbon fiber is incredibly strong and lightweight, it also has a distinctive woven pattern that makes it appealing to the masses. Because of its appeal, ColorWare created carbon fiber graphics for the Sennheiser HD 800 headphones. This textured pattern is accented with Formula Red in a matte finish.

This unique design has been coupled with more than 60 years of ingenious headphone engineering. The HD 800 is hand-assembled in Germany with only the finest of materials. The transducer is encased in a precision material made of stainless steel, while the headband and headphone mounting utilizes the most advanced development from the aerospace industry.

Gear : Shades : CTRL ONE Smart Sunglasses

Slow-changing transition lenses are one thing. The technology in CTRL ONE Smart Sunglasses, another. Originally developed for the U.S. military, CTRL ONE uses Tint-on-Demand tech within its lenses that switches from crystal clear to dark at the push of a button and in less than one tenth of a second. The lenses themselves meet ANSI Z87.1 standards for ballistic protection against rubble and offer 100% UV protection, as any good sport shades should. They also boast adjustable nose and temple pads for customizing your fit, last for about 50 hours of continuous use, and feature an automatic mode where an integrated light sensor decides what tint is most appropriate for current conditions.

Gadgets : Soul Electronics Combat+ Sync Headphones

Gadgets : Soul Electronics Combat+ Sync Headphones

Soul Electronics today unveiled the new Combat+ Sync, its first fitness-oriented, music-sharing Bluetooth headphones with walkie-talkie capability. The Combat+ Sync is designed to deliver high-quality music to you and your friends while you work out, allowing you to communicate with yoga partners, crossfit coaches and workout partners without having to remove your headphones.

As the name suggests, the biggest benefits of the Combat+ Sync don’t come into play until you sync two or more pairs to each other. You can then use the SOUL smartphone app to share songs and sync workout rhythms, so you can have a shared intensity even if you don’t share music. The built-in mic and walkie-talkie feature, meanwhile, lets you communicate wirelessly with other Combat+ Sync wearers.

According to Soul, the new headphones are of high-quality construction – it has a flexible headband that can survive drops, an ergonomic and sweat-proof design and washable mesh ear pads (similar to the Urbanears Humlan). The Combat+ Sync lasts 15 hours on a full charge, so there are no worries about it quitting mid-workout (or mid-marathon). It even gives off a customizable and pleasing LED glow that helps you get noticed by traffic while running.

Looking to give Soul’s Combat+ Sync headphones a try for yourself? You’ll need a bit of patience – these headphones are expected to ship in February 2016. You can reserve your pair by visiting the company’s Kickstarter campaign for the headphones and pledging $199. Larger multi-packs are available in case you want to outfit and entire team or class, but quantity discounts are limited.

Lupe Fiasco - Pharaoh Height

Back in June, Lupe Fiasco hinted to us that he had a new project on the way called Pharaoh Height 2/30. While nothing has come of it since, Lupe decided to surprise his fans Saturday morning by sharing the project for free on twitter.

Laced with only 6 tracks, the featureless project finds Lupe experimenting with some different sounds and beats, but still has him bringing that lyrical heat of course though. It presumably serves as the sequel to his 2006 mixtape Farenheit 1/15.

Stream and/or download the tape now. (Tracklist below)

01. In
02. Valleys
03. Of
04. Kings
05. Pyramid

Cars : Porsche Mission E

Cars : Porsche Mission E

With the Model S, Tesla proved that all-electric cars can move fast. The Porsche Mission E Concept proves they can charge fast, too. This yet-to-be-greenlit looker is powered by a pair of motors producing a combined 600+ hp, good for a 0-62 time of under 3.5 seconds, and a world first 800-volt drive system that allows for incredibly fast charging, as in an 80% charge, or enough to go nearly 250 miles, in just 15 minutes. The car promises to handle well, with both all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, and despite the sleek design of the aluminium, steel, and carbon fiber reinforced polymer body, still offers four full doors and four single seats. All that's missing is a release date.
