What do you do to make sure everything goes right?
Having blessed Yeezus concertgoers this past weekend with a performance alongside longtime collaborators ATCQ, Busta Rhymes takes to the viral world today to release a video treatment to his latest single “Thank You.” Featuring the equally-legendary Q-Tip ‘The Abstract’ with added commentary coming from Kanye West and label mate Lil Wayne, the Alicia Myers-sampled track is matched with a video that enlists some beautiful eye candy as well as a few notable cameos from fellow industry comrades. “Thank You” is expected to appear on Busta’s forthcoming Extinction Level Event 2, due out sometime in 2014.
The only thing better than French knit and apparel maker Monsieur Lacenaire‘s whimsical Fall/Winter collection is the even-more-whimsical video they’ve created to accompany it.
Shoot your way through a progression of decked out “hunters”, while avoiding the innocent, unarmed “animals”. It’s kind of like that scene from Men In Black when Will Smith caps only the out-of-place school girl, but much more French.
Play the game, then shop the whole Monsieur Lacenaire collection on their website.

Your perception of photos as simply just still images and videos as moving pictures is about to shattered.
OK, that was dramatic, but the 90-second film that Hesdy Lonwijk and The Ambassadors’ Stijn Waterman have created to showcase G-SHOCK’s new limited edition, all-leather timepiece, is truly mind-blowing. And definitely face-melting.
The video stitches together a series of GIFs in which a section of each flows, video-style, while the remainder stays startlingly stationary. Playing over the visuals is an equally dope spoken-word re-interpretation of Raekwon’s verse on Wu-Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.”.
The effect is so wildly awesome that it actually distracts from the actual watch that the video is supposed to promote, a G-SHOCK collaboration with designers Filling Pieces, OntFront, Ceizer, and URBMATH, meant to capture “the creativity and buzz of Amsterdam”.
The film will be screened at the G-Shock 30th Anniversary event in Berlin on Novemebr 28th as part of the wider G-SESSIONS campaign. Then, it’s up to a public vote to choose which timepiece is going from a run of 10 to a, still limited edition, 200. Vote.

East Coast representative Black Dave continues his 2013 onslaught by releasing the trippy vintage visuals for his “Rap N’ Skate” single. B.D. makes his two main interests pretty clear in the song, where he pairs bars about skating and purpose against an admittedly catchy hook. Filmed entirely on VHS, the video itself pays homage to old skateboarding footage, and features the artist cruising around crowd favorite Coleman Skate Park in the Lower East Side. Enjoy the video above, and be sure to check out Black Dave’s Black Bart mixtape here.
In this short film, Portland-based production company Cineastas offer an insightful look into the life and work of bladesmith Murray Carter. Originally from Halifax Nova Scotia, Carter found a strong calling to Japanese culture after visiting the country in his teens as an avid karate fan. Whilst there, a chance meeting led him to strike up a relationship with a traditional Japanese bladesmith named Yasayuki Yoshimoto, a master of the craft and 16th generation holder of the Yoshimoto bladesmithing tradition. This led to Carter apprenticing with Yoshimoto for six years, before founding his own company and becoming the 17th generation of the fabled bladesmithing chapter. Press play for an excellent portrayal of not just the craft, but of the spirit with which Carter approaches it.
