In a recession, I will absolutely say these jeans are waayy out of my price range (and probably yours too). But I'm sure there are a couple folk who frequent this site that would spend their last unemployment check on a pair of dope denim.
New from mastermind JAPAN and Levi's Fenom comes a pair of jeans that should have a 100,000 mile warranty for as much as they cost. Heavy branding, printing, and laced with studs and Swarovski jewels these pants are one of a kind. How much you ask? Approximately $3,200 USD. Yeah...I had to pick my jaw up as well.
Available now at Hong Kong's Anytime.

Now even though I'm getting a liiiiittle sick of the whole "space cadet" shit that everyone is on, I will excuse this track and and deliver thumbs up. This comes from a new group out of the Toronto area (guess they can thank Drake for making some noise over there) called The Airplane Boys. Their sound is pretty dope and I hope to hear more from these 2 in the future. For now, check out the track below and feel free to share your comments....pleeease share your comments, I get like a trillion hits a day and no one wants to comment on shit! Makes me look bad...haha

I've always been a huge Maxwell fan. In fact, I was one of the first cats to get excited when he came back on the scene (no homo). Here's a hot new joint off his upcoming album BLACKsummers’ Night. See, we look out for the ladies as well as the gents.

Because I know that everyone out there enjoys a hot new Drake track as much as I do, here's a new joint from my homeboy featuring Tanya Morgan whom I didn't find out until now they were a rap trio from Cincinnati and Brooklyn and not a hot chick (upset at first but the rhymes made up for it). The track is sick, Tanya Morgan holds it down, add it to your fuckin iPod...or Zune for you outcasts. lol

The completed Aston Martin One-77 made its first appearance at the Concorso d'Eleganza over the weekend in Italy, winning a prestigious design award for concept cars. The event marked the first showing of the One-77 with a working interior and drivetrain.
At the Villa d'Este hotel on the shores of Lake Como, the One-77 took the Concorso d'Eleganza Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes. The $1.47 million coupe gathered more than 30% of the total votes, besting competition from the Fisker Karma S, Infiniti Essence, Stile Bertone Mantide, Perana Z One, and Rinspeed iChange among others.
We saw the One-77 rolling chassis at the Geneva Auto Show in March. Though the exterior was in finished form, the car lacked a complete interior and drivetrain. For the Concorso d'Eleganza, the team at Aston Martin added the components by hand.
As reported in our First Look, the One-77 relies on a Cosworth-upgraded version of Aston's 6.0-liter V-12. Now displacing 7.3-liters, the engine produces 700 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. With a vehicle weight around 3300-lbs, Aston Martin says the One-77 scoots to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds. And a 200 mph-plus top speed is "unavoidable," according to Aston Martin boss Ulrich Bez.
