Living The Good Life: Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Riding Through Paris In A White Lamborghini Gallardo

They’re way too cold and living the good life. Kanye West and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian were spotted in Paris over this weekend riding in a white Lamborghini Gallardo. The twosome grabbed ice cream at Haagen-Dazs with Kimmy’s mother Kris Jenner. On tonight’s (Sunday June 17) episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, Kimmy opens up about her relationship with Kanye West. In the beginning, I didn’t like them as a couple but now I’m growing to like them the more I see them together.

The Bidding War Is Over: Chief Keef Signs To Interscope

After months of rumors and speculations, rising Chicago rapper Chief Keef signed with Interscope Records. Below is how MTV is reporting the story:

On Saturday (June 16) just hours before he took the stage at Birthday Bash with T.I. the Chicago upstart inked a deal with Jimmy Iovine’s label and gave RapFix the exclusive.

“I’ve been talkin’ to a lot of labels, but I just noticed that Interscope got people like 50, Eminem,” Keef told us after he got off stage performing his breakout track, “I Don’t Like.”

The teenage spitter also revealed that he signed a publishing deal with Dr. Dre. Keef was recruited by a few labels including Cash Money and T.I.’s Grand Hustle. “I like him, he kinda remind me of us,” Baby told MTV News back in May. “[He’s] out the streets, I think he swagged up and I’m definitely talkin’ to his people and i’d like to see if we could get it to pop, see if I can get him to be down with the team.”

During that same month Kanye West remixed Keef’s “I Don’t Like” along with Pusha T, Jadakiss and Big Sean. Bad Boy and Def Jam were also rumored to have approached the young rapper. With all of the interest he drew in the end chose the Scope. “They was talkin’ good to me,” he said of Interscope. “They was talkin’ like I was talkin’ and I liked that. All these other labels, I was talkin’ to ’em, but it’s time anyway for me and I’m goin’ with Interscope.”

Congrats Chief Keef! Welcome to the music industry, give it all you have and take your talents pass the stars.

Bringing The 90’s Fashion Back: French Montana In A Vintage Versace Silk Shirt & Matching Scarf

Over this weekend, Bad Boy/Interscope recording artist French Montana performed at Jones Beach in New York for Drake’s ‘Club Paradise’ tour. For the occasion, Montana rocked a vintage Versace Silk Shirt with the matching scarf. This is some type of old skool shirt. Silk Versace shirts became popular in the 90’s. Beyoncé, Cassie, Brandy and Blac Chyna were also spotted wearing a Vintage Versace Silk Shirt.

In related Montana news, a rep from his camp confirmed to Billboard The Juice that his debut LP, entitled Excuse My French has been pushed back to the fall. “I’m still working on a couple of the last pieces so I’m not really rushing it,” said Montana. The album is halfway done but the tour slowed up the recording process. “This tour set me back,” added Montana.

Currently Obsessed With: Vintage 80’s Adidas Hooded Track Jacket

I’m currently obsessed with this vantage 80’s Adidas Track Jacket. My first two years at Rutgers University (2006-2008), all I wore was Adidas track jackets, pants, hoodies, shirts and sneakers. For whatever reason, I outgrew it. Somehow, I stumbled across this dope jacket while web surfing. This blue jacket features color block sleeves and pink/multi-color trefoil, Adidas trefoil in the zipper, hood that zips into the collar and very lightweight nylon material. With this jacket, I will keep it simple and wear a pair of navy blue jeans with Adidas shell toe sneakers. Do you like this jacket and how would you wear it?

Sneaker Me Dope: Fabolous Rocking Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Fire Red’

Rapper Fabolous was recently photo’d rocking a pair of Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Fire Red’ sneakers. These kicks were originally released back in 1989 and have not been retroed in OG form since. These sneakers are set to hit retailers this August. According to TheShoeGame, “This retro will stay true to the original version and will not feature the Mars Blackmon logo. Of course, the retro version will feature the Jumpman logo instead of Nike Air.” Fabolous paired his Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Fire Red’ with some blue jeans and a white tee-shirt. Those jeans are really dope! Fab will also be dropping his new album Loso’s Way 2: The Rise To Power later this year or early next year.

She Is Doing A Great Job Branding Herself: Kim Kardashian Covers The July/August 2012 Issue Of L’Uomo Vogue

Kim Kardashian is doing a great job at branding herself. She turned her 15 minutes of fame into a $100 million empire. The key to success is branding yourself and the key to failure is trying to please everybody but that’s not Kimmy case because she is doing exactly what she wants and not worrying about other people opinions. The reality star and business-mogul is covering the July/August issue of L’Uomo Vogue magazine. This marks Kim’s first Vogue cover ever. The shoot was shot by photographer Francesco Carozzi. Inside Kim opens up about her accomplishments, key to success, family, upbringing, regrets and much more. Below are some excerpts:

On her accomplishments despite being born into money:

“Yes I was born rich; it was a classic Californian lineage: lavishness and ostentation, luxury mansions with pools, private clubs, exclusive friendships, and luxury cars. Despite the affluence, at only 31 I’ve been able to build my own empire in the world of entertainment and, although looks and friendships are important, I want the new generation to understand that if you don’t believe in yourself and in your own ideas, you go nowhere. This is what happened with my new fragrance: I could never have imagined achieving that.”

On her keys to success: “All my success depends on my education and the support I receive all the time from my family. I’m very lucky to have someone around me who is always ready to help, so it doesn’t matter what problems I have to face in life, I know that I always have someone to turn to in my hour of need.
