Abel Makonnen Tesfaye, has collaborated with one of the most revered designers of today.  After appearing alongside a myriad of artists and celebrities as apart of Alexander Wang’s recent Do Something campaign, the Weeknd has worked with the famed label on a  distinctive set of branded clothing.  The high end outfitter took to Instagram to reveal a white XO logo juxtaposed on the signature Alexander Wang barcode design.  Details at this point are few and far between yet the social media posting invites us to stay tuned.  The Weeknd will be exclusively wearing the #WANGXO apparel collection along with the standard Alexander Wang clothing offering during the forthcoming “The Madness” Fall 2015 arena tour.

Snoop Dogg Launches Stoner Lifestyle Media Platform

It’s about time Snoop Dogg invested into the marijuana industry.

The Hip Hop icon attended Tech Crunch Disrupt to discuss his new media platform “MerryJane.com” which will serve for everything cannabis related.

“We’re providing the industry with something that’s void right now. We are the information hotline for cannabis. We are what’s missing”, Snoop said.

The site was co-found by Ted Chung and will collaborate with celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Seth Rogen. Chung said:

There are few companies out there that have attempted to enter into the marketplace. Their download apps total and page views total are really numbers that we’re going to crush within the first six months. I think the interest level and the demand is there.

The interest level and demand is definitely there because you will definitely find merryjane.com in my browser’s history.

Merry Jane will go live next month and stay tuned for the first original web series Deflowered.

Drake Opened Up A New Restaurant in Toronto

Drake’s resume just keeps getting longer and longer.

Drake is a known advocate for good Canadian eats. Which makes sense that the 6 God will open up a restaurant in his hometown, Toronto.

Frings is the name of the restaurant (for unknown reasons). It’s a co-venture with Susur Lee, his sons, and OVO Gelo. This collaboration doesn’t come as much of a surprise because Drake chose to spend his last birthday at Bent (one of Lee’s restaurant) alongside Lee and his mother. However, the opening date of the restaurant was still a surprise because it didn’t get too much promotion besides a few speculated Vine videos.

But he did show off Fring’s opening on Instagram, taking pictures with his mom and a group picture with the other restaurant owners:

Drake reportedly arrived at 8PM sharp, downing shots and he served his attendees, Jaden Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Serena Williams, fries and sliders. Will this be apart of the official menu Lee was asked and he said they “haven’t really figured it out yet. We’re still testing and tasting, you know. Good things take time”.

But if you’re in Frings feeling like a Sweeterman or a Wasteman, you’ve got choices. Check it out. Also take a look at the exterior:
