Eminem featuring Jazmine Sullivan – Cocaine

Following up on a lackluster version that hit the net several weeks ago, offered today is the official CD quality version of Eminem’s single with Jazmine Sullivan titled “Cocaine.” Ironically, with Eminem’s recent drop of “Syllables,” we probably won’t be finding anymore of these duets from him anytime soon.

2011 Maybach Cruiserio Coupe

 
German coachbuilder, Xenatec, gets its kicks from making short cars long, long cars short, and long cars even longer. This is evident in their many zany interpretations, including their transformations for the Audi R8 and the Porsche 911. But their craziest package is yet to come with the Maybach Cruiserio Coupe, developed by Daimler and Saudi-based Auto Kingdom. There will only be 100 units built at a price of $940,000.The Cruiserio Coupe is powered by a V12 engine with an output of 605 HP and a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds, while top speed hits the 170 mph mark. Pretty amazing numbers considering we’re talking about a 5.7 meter luxury coupe.

The 25 Best Kanye West Verses of 2010

2010 belonged to Kanye West. He was the year’s most creative, controversial, and entertaining figure—not only in hip-hop, but in pop culture, period. Next year, ‘Ye will release Watch The Throne, a joint LP with Jay-Z. Half a decade ago, critics would have questioned his ability to rap alongside Hov for an entire abum, but ‘Ye has come a long way from pushing miracle whips. There’s no better proof than his musical output this year, where he rapped like a motherfucking monster on every song he was on. We love to hear the story of Kanye’s ousting from society and return to triumph again and again, but let’s take a moment to look back at the music itself instead of the narrative that goes along with it. The 25 Best Kanye West Verses of 2010 places the spotlight on all of the Chicago MC’s lyrical onslaughts this year. No one man should have this many hot insane verses in less than 12 months, but Yeezy did. Keep reading to check out our countdown of the very best…

Louis Vuitton Cruise Trunk Show In Atlanta


 Louis Vuitton with the assistance of Vogue’s Andre Leon Talley recently held a trunk show highlighting the cruise collection at the brand’s Atlanta location. The major ladylike theme for this collection is not news, though as we’ve mentioned before, the fashion is really just a backdrop for the bags, which very much make up the lion’s share of LV’s sales. It’s a reality that popped up a bit today when NewYork magazine dug through its archives for a 2008 quote from Carine Roitfeld, part of which hinted she would eventually step down from her job as editor, “Right now I think that fashion in the world becomes a bit boring. There is so much money, and I feel a bit when you go to shows they want to sell so many handbags, and for me, well, I do not like handbags. I do not wear handbags. It is not a nice look, to carry a handbag.” More images from the show on the next page.
