If you’ve been anywhere near the internet this week, you may have noticed a proliferation of videos of people dumping buckets of icy water on their heads and maybe you wondered wtf was going on. The stunt is called the Ice Bucket Challenge and the purpose is to raise awareness about Lou Gehrig’s disease, which is more formally known as ALS. That’s cool and all, but some people have been so overcome with excitement at the prospect of having frigid water poured over their heads that they went ahead and filmed videos with zero mention of the disease they’re supposedly trying to bring awareness too. So props to Wayne for doing it right, plus, that was a big ass bucket and it looked full.
French just dropped his new video for “Don’t Panic” and it’s inspired by The Purge, a stupid movie with an absurd premise. Also, his girlfriend Khloe Kardashian co-stars.

A couple of weeks back, the internet got its hands on footage of DMX riding one of those Slingshot rides down in Orlando and we had a collective field day with it. Well, X is back and he’s on the ride again and this time, he’s looking to redeem himself.

Chicago’s Mick Jenkins delivers his highly anticipated sophomore mixtape, The Water[s]. He’s got 15 tracks, including a closer with Joey Bada$$ called “Jerome”.
He explained the meaning of the title to HNHH during a new Q&A:
The Water[s] is supposed to be representative of…we need water, our world needs water, our bodies need water, it’s probably the most essential element to life. And I feel like, with my ultimate goal being heaven, so is truth and spiritual truth. So it’s just a loose metaphor in that manner. And I chose water specifically because I feel like it can metaphorically be taken into a lot of directions, which is something we do throughout the tape. To put the brackets around the ‘s’ was just to say that, I mean I just felt like some might see as The Water, reference that alone, without any metaphor, and the ‘s’ was to spark that metaphor, just to make you think about why it was added.
