Vic Mensa officially released his debut album The Autobiography this past Friday, July 28. But in a new interview with TMZ, Mensa was asked about another Chicago artist – R. Kelly. The cameraman barely finished asking Mensa for his thoughts on the controversial R&B star when he swiftly interjected – “Fuck R. Kelly. R. Kelly is a scumbag and a very dirty man. He needs to be locked away forever.”
Check out the interview below, where he also discusses the cancellation of Justin Bieber’s US ‘Purpose’ Tour, where Mensa was due to support the pop artist on all nine dates.
The White Walkers are an undeniably evil force in Game of Thrones, but the above video argues that they’re not just senseless monsters — they’re actually a metaphor for climate change, an issue that George R.R. Martin has spoken about before.
While it may sound a little strange at first, it’s actually a very convincing argument. Despite being such an existential threat to humanity, the White Walkers are generally not taken so seriously. Stories about them come through grim secondhand accounts, and are often dismissed as fake by people like Tyrion Lannister and Ned Stark. Sound familiar?
Like climate change, the wealthier characters in the show can ignore the White Walkers, as the poor and vulnerable are affected first. Watch the video above.
In other Game of Thrones news, here’s what will happen on next week’s episode.
Reddit user CokeSlurpees had a pretty good weekend when he managed to cop a haul of Supreme T-shirts for just $4 each at his local Kmart.
After discovering a pile of American Apparel shirts, sold to Kmart after the brand folded earlier this year, CokeSlurpees probed further and stumbled across the blank Sup pieces in yellow, white, teal and green. How on earth did this streetwear bounty end up there?!
According to iD, the reason isn’t all that complicated. Retailers like Kmart have been well-known to buy up liquidation stock when companies go under, selling the cut-price bulk orders for a tidy profit. Supreme has never revealed where it gets its blank T-shirts from, but many have long pegged American Apparel as a key supplier. When American Apparel went bust, instead of the tees going to Supreme, they’ve instead been sent to Kmart.
iD continues that normally labels are removed before items hit the racks, but for some reason, these shirts remained intact. After further investigation, Redditors noted how the colorways matched the yellow “Nun” shirt from SS17 and the olive Nobuyoshi Araki tee from FW16.
To quote the user Gomzey: “I swear y’all live in an alternate dimension where stuff like this happens.” We feel similar, dude.

J Hus has unveiled a gorgeous new visual for “Spirit,” taken from this year’s debut album Common Sense. Filmed entirely in Jamestown, a small community on the coast of Ghana, the visual finds the rapper engaging in activities like boxing and fishing, all of which highlight the town’s remarkable visual energy.

Hus has had a fantastic year. Common Sense ranks among 2017’s most-acclaimed albums, including our own list of favorites of the year so far. “Spirit” follows the previously-shared videos for “Did You See” and the title track. Revisit the latter visual below.
We were introduced to the work of Los Angeles-based graphic designer Yuma Naito through his incredibly in-depth university project fictionally rebranding Afropunk festival. Yuma’s introduction to graphic design wasn’t exactly the usual route, but as a result his projects pull inspiration from numerous references in a very exciting way.
