AwakeNY x Tommy Hilfiger x Mercedes-AMG F1
Tommy Hilfiger, the official clothing sponsor for the Mercedes-AMG Formula One Team, has unveiled a collaboration with Awake NY ahead of the Miami Grand Prix. The Tommy x Mercedes-AMG F1 x Awake NY collection, available from May 4, blends Angelo Baque’s streetwear style with Hilfiger’s academic aesthetic to create a range of race-inspired clothing. Baque, a fan of racing and Lewis Hamilton, felt that this collaboration was a full circle moment.
SHAQ IS BACK
Shaquille O’Neal, former NBA star and accomplished rapper, has released a new song called “Hit The Floor”. And he went crazy on this. The song features a sample from the iconic metal song “Bodies” by Drowning Pool, giving it a heavy, intense beat. With aggressive lyrics and O’Neal’s signature flow, it’s a fun and powerful track that showcases the basketball legend’s skills on the mic.
Rap from Cambodia: VANNDA
Chances are high you have never ever heard of this guy named VANNDA from Cambodia. But numbers don’t lie and he has an astonishing 4 million subscribers on YouTube and regularly hits the 10+ million views mark on his songs. It’s always great to discover assumably unknown rappers that are already stars. Make sure to check out his song “Young Man” featuring fellow OG Bobby.
Reezy ft. Luciano – EXPENSIVE SHIT
“EXPENSIVE SHIT” is a new single by German rapstars reezy and Luciano. The track is a vibrant mix of trap and Afrobeat influences, with catchy hooks and hard-hitting verses delivered by both artists. The song’s title refers to a slang term for high-quality marijuana, but the lyrics also touch on themes of success, ambition, and the pursuit of wealth. The style of the music video and seeing these two come together makes a great atmo.
