Rumors Surface of Kanye West and Paul McCartney Working Together

Hyperbeast - Mon, 2014-08-18 17:43

News has broken that two indisputable masters of pop music could be building out a collaborative project. An interview last year revealed Paul McCartney's desire to work with a hip-hop star, with the Beatles frontman naming Kanye West alongside JAY Z for potential partners. According to Page Six, this desire could soon be fulfilled, as sources indicate the two have been working in-studio, with one product being tentatively named "Piss on Your Grave." The juxtaposition of McCartney's ever-sweet lullaby writing with West's aggressive production seems contradistinctive – the stuff of cross-genre lore – but of course harbors potential to be an instant classic whether it takes one-off or full album form. Stay tuned to HYPETRAK for more news as this story unfolds.

Air Jordan Retro 7 ‘Galaxy’ Customs by Have Air Customs

Sneaker Files - Mon, 2014-08-18 17:21

By now, we're all familiar with the galaxy pattern covering sneakers. This was made notorious by the Nike Air Foamposite a couple of years ago, but now California-based artist, Have Air Customs, is serving up another pair of kicks in the popular theme. The Air Jordan Retro 7 'Galaxy' customs by Have Air Customs revamp a pair of 'French Blue' 7s from 2002, and have a galactic pattern on the midfoot panels and toe caps. We've seen other galaxy themed sneakers from Have Air  in the past, like his AJ5 'Galaxy' customs, but we're digging the clean contrast of the white to the galaxy pattern, which is entirely hand-painted. Keep scrolling for some extra angles of these dope kicks now! If you're interested in copping a pair of these, head over to HaveAirCustoms.com and put in your order!

Hyperbeast - Mon, 2014-08-18 13:44

Following our big reveal of NIGO's collection for the upcoming #NigoOnlyLivesTwice auction through Sotheby's, we're back with a second item and certainly his most infamous. Conceived during his time working for ICECREAM and BBC, the diamond-encrusted 14K white gold Dollar Sign necklace was custom-made by New York-based jeweler Jacob & Co. As luck would have it, the hefty piece of bling among other commissions eventually brought NIGO together with collaborator and good friend Pharrell Williams, who heard about NIGO through Jacob Arabo.

For the first video in our series, check it out here. And be sure to stay tuned this Friday when he shares one final piece from his collection, which goes on auction October 7 in Hong Kong.

Sponsored Video: Johnnie Walker Blue Label "The Gentlemen's Wager" starring Jude Law

Hyperbeast - Mon, 2014-08-18 13:42

Johnnie Walker Blue Label introduces a tale of competition like no other with "The Gentleman's Wager." Shot in the Virgin Islands by British director Jake Scott, the short film has Jude Law going toe-to-toe against fellow actor Giancarlo Gianni for ownership of a 1928 "rarer than rare" Italian boat, the Varraze. While we might be used to seeing Law winning his on-screen battles a certain way, for this stand-off he brings out his most powerful secret weapon: dance.

"The Gentlemen's Wager" is less about competing than it is literally taking a step out of one's comfort zone to win something that can't be bought and by the looks of it, both Gianni and Law are certainly came out tied-for-first in that regard. Both stars look like they had nothing short of a memorable experience shooting the film with Law particularly enjoying the new moves he picked up along the way.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label is the premier brand in blended scotch whisky with its signature blend drawn from the highest quality of whisky found in only 1 in 10,000 casks. Distinguished by a base of dry smokiness accented by the sweetness of raisins, each sip thereafter reveals layers of hazelnuts, honey and citrus and bold hints of tobacco, dark chocolate and more.

Check out the video above and share your thoughts. For more, visit the website here.
