Amber Rose’s Walk of…No Shame?

Amber Rose is attacking the word “slut” with everything she has.

Rose teamed up with the comedy website Funny or Die in a video called “Walk of No Shame.” The video shows Amber walking out of a house in a “last night outfit” as she starts down her “walk of shame,” also known as the awkward trip from the home of the previous night’s sex partner to one’s own residence just as the sun pierces through the dawn.

If you’ve ever gone away to college, or have your own place, this could also be considered a normal Sunday morning. In the video, Amber takes the stroll, but attempts to show that having a one-night-stand isn’t something to be ashamed of, and doesn’t make a woman a slut. Check the video out, and figure out which side you stand on.

Kanye West Debuted a New Song at His Yeezy Season 2 Fashion Show

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=1&v=18-ByS3BoP0

When Kanye West debuted his first ever Addias collection, Yeezy Season 1, back in February, the buzz surrounded not only his new threads and sneakers, but new music, which, at the time, was thought to be imminent. ‘Ye added fuel to that fire by premiering “Wolves,” his collaboration with Vic Mensa and SIA, in New York City at the fashion show, which was attended by expected A-listers Anna Wintour, Jay Z, Diddy and more. Kanye would then perform the song on Saturday Night Live shortly after.

Today, Yeezy is back in New York City debuting the second installment of Yeezy Season, Yeezy Season 2, and he has once again premiered new music, this time featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Post Malone, per Malone himself, who is in attendance at the YS2 show.

You can hear a preview of the song above, but don’t get your hopes up for an official release of the record. “Wolves” has yet to see the light of day, and despite the fact that Kanye’s been teasing his new album since May 2014, outside of a name change, no news on it has surfaced.

Muslim Boy Arrested at School Because Teachers Believed Homemade Clock Was a Bomb

A ninth-grade student in Irving, Texas, was arrested and sent to juvenile detention Monday after bringing a homemade clock to school, according to The Dallas Morning News

Ahmed Mohamed, a student at MacArthur High School, created a clock using a circuit board, power supply and digital clock display together inside a pencil case. He brought the clock to school to impress some of his teachers, but once he showed the clock off, a teacher immediately told Mohamed to put it away.

The 14-year-old was later pulled from his class and sent to the principal’s office, where he was interrogated by police officers. He says he was threatened with expulsion, asked if he tried “to make a bomb,” and led out of the school in handcuffs by police officers.

Mohamed has been suspended for three days. The incident has prompted some to claim–correctly–that his arrest and subsequent transfer to juvenile detention, where he was fingerprinted and then released to his parents, is blatant Islamophobia.

Here’s the Full “Why You Lying” Video You Weren’t Sure You Needed

We were in danger of summer winding down without giving us a signature Vine moment, and Nicholas Fraser saved us. The Instagram comedian’s rendition of Next‘s “Too Close,” dubbed “Why You Lying,” has provided laughs for millions on pretty much every social media platform, and now he’s extending his 15 minutes. Or should we say, 15 seconds.

Fraser has released the full-length music video for “Why You Lying,” which has already been getting love in clubs and end-of-summer parties, and you can watch it above. There’s fake rain, back-up dancers, and Fraser’s signature impressions of classic 90’s R&B video antics.

In case you were feeling about how the guys of Next feel about this, RL’s got something you need to see to believe.

Watch Young Thug’s New Video, “Best Friend”

Young Thug teased a forthcoming official release earlier today, and it has arrived in the form of a music video, the Be El Be-directed “Best Friend,” a play on some pretty popular social media lingo.

With his proper debut album, HY!£UN35​, dropping at some point this year, Thug plans on teasing it with his Slime Season mixtape, which will be entirely produced by London On The Track, with whom Thugger has been especially prolific since 2014 (see: “Lifestyle,” “All About The Money,” “Check”). The tape is due out this month, but in the mean time, let your eyes bulge at all the left-field antics playing out in Thug’s latest visual, par for the course for the Atlanta rep.

 

#PeepTheVisual: Lex Lavo Presents “Consignment” Dir. By A1Vision

Spanish Harlem’s own, Lex Lavo, toasts to his come-up and continues puttin’ in work in his cinematic new video for “Consignment,” the latest single off his bubbling summer release, The Voice EP.

As anyone who’s heard the EP already will tell you, the rising 25-year-old MC delivers effortless, confident bars over producer High Volume’s trunk-rattler of a beat, and in the video, it all  sets the tone for crisp, beautifully shot visuals handled by A1Vision (aka photographer/videographer Bryan Nunez). Lavo and his crew’s approach makes this feel more like a mini-movie than your standard music video, particularly the nods to his lyrics about everything from getting hooked up with a free sandwich to keeping one eye glued to the police presence in the stone jungle.

Given the way the vivid clip concludes, you get the feeling that there’s more to come from Lex Lavo, who clearly has his own story to tell. Until we get that, though, you can enjoy the “Consignment” video by hitting the play button above,  and circle back to his previous drop, “My Set,” which features Shelby Ellimac on the hook.

The Voice EP is now available for free download, courtesy of DatPiff.
