What's the story behind your name?
After parting ways with Nike, due to artisitic and contract limitations, Kanye West has now officially signed with Adidas. Known for his popular Air Yeezy Nike sneaker and his ever changing sense of style, it is obvious that Kanye has a nack for clothing and is more than willing to put his creative mind into the production of clothing. According to him, it has been his dream since he was a little kid to make clothing - clothing that is affordable while at the same time breaks the seam when it comes to innovation and style.
If you haven't heard by now - Seth Rogen and James Franco, have made a hilarious parody of the "Bound 2" music video, simply titled "Bound 3". Watch it side by side to the original above
Also, Yeezy's latest single and most well-recepted song off of Yeezus, has gotten two awesome remixes within the last week. One done by Solidisco and the other by Cookin' Soul, who each give it their own unique sound, all while keeping the overall smoothness of the original. Check them both out and let us know which is your favorite out of the two.
If you didn't get the hint from Kanye's recent rants during his Yeezus Tour that he is not happy with Nike then you've been living under a rock recently.
During his concert here in NYC Kanye ranted about a number of things--one of those things being a beef with Nike. Kanye announced during his show at MSG on Saturday, that he would make a special announcement on Monday, November 25. Kanye took to the air waves during an interview at Hot 97 last night, and officially announced that he would signing a deal with Adidas after not receiving any royalties from his sneaker deal with Nike for his Air Yeezys.
James Franco and Seth Rogen have made a hilarious parody video of Kanye West’s music video for his song “Bound 2.” The comedic duo’s video, titled “Bound 3,” has Franco playing the part of West while Rogen takes on Kim Kardashian’s role.
The beginning of the video opens with a message that says, "While on the set of their movie, The Interview, James Franco & Seth Rogen felt inspired to recreate their favorite new video. Shot. For. Shot." The video looks just like West’s video with the background scenery and Franco and Rogen riding on a motorcycle.
Franco took to Instagram to share his love for Rogen. The actor posted a screenshot of the two’s passionate kiss from the video with the caption, “#bound3 - I LOvE SETh.”
What will these two think of to parody next?

This week's Mute Thursday at Lima Lounge will host dubstep/garage artist Kastle.

Thursday night's set is part of his first North American live tour, on the heels of his highly anticipated debut album, KASTLE, which dropped on April 23rd. Doors are at 10PM, and tickets are available here.
Kanye West stopped by Ellen today (Novemeber 19) to drop off his new video for the closing track from his latest album, Yeezus. "Bound 2" has been a fan favorite, and with the help of director Nick Knight, West brought the song to life. Featuring West's fiancée Kim Kardashian riding topless on a motorcycle with a backdrop of various American landscapes, the video is certainly a creative take on the single. Check out the video here, and let us know what you think.
Kanye West finally asked Kim Kardashian to marry him on October 21 which also happened to be the reality star’s 33rd birthday. West rented out AT&T Park in San Francisco to propose to Kardashian and even took use of the jumbo screen which had written on it, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”
Kardashian posted a photo of her engagement ring on her Instagram account with the caption, “YES!!!”
This will be the reality star’s third marriage. She was previously married to Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004 and to Kris Humphries in 2011 for only 72 days before she filed for divorce. Their divorce was finalized in June. This will be West’s first marriage.
The couple first went public with their relationship in 2012 and welcomed daughter North on June 15.
Congrats to the couple on their engagement!
