Italian eyewear label, SUPER, just released their new spring/summer collection for the new year. Aiming for a “minimalism of objects and their functionality”, the collection seems very simple, yet intriguing at the same time. The models shown here are the “People” (£118), “Andrea” (£129) and the “Flat Top” (£118). All models come in various color-ways and are now available through Goodhood London. I personally love the “Flat Top”, but might be out of my price range – check out the thumbnails below.

I don’t know why I never posted this video earlier, but you must see it if you haven’t already. The visuals throughout the video are absolutely stunning, and I have to give much respect to the video’s producer, Nabil Elderkin. Here is what he had to say about the piece; “It’s pretty minimalistic. It’s slow and very visual. I just wanted to catch the vibe of the song and not get too literal. Because the lyrics are very close to Kanye and go much deeper than the video goes, obviously hearing the song you know it’s very emotional.” All never get tired of what 808’s & Heartbreak brings, the lyrical content is brilliant and I appreciate the album very much.

Ryan Leslie, a Genius music producer for those of you who don’t already know, is teaming up with Adidas in an effort to better people’s community. He’s looking for someone to make a video telling him how they’re attempting to improve their community. The winner will receive Adidas gear. [Chyea, I need some new shell-toes. Hopefully I get my Camera back from the Repair shop this week so I can enter.] So get out there there, make a video and show Mistah R. Les what’s good!

Sirron here. Yeah, I don’t really like Drake but I know a lot of people that do. I’m very interested in how he’s crafted this highly anticipated freshman Album. Though I was disappointed by the first single released named “Over” , the record might not be too bad.

This was spotted at SOHH, today.

1) There’s a song on the disc called “Fireworks” that has the greatest beat ever. Drake has this sidekick producer called 40, and he’s talented. I met him as well this afternoon and he’s also a good kid. He’s about to be very, very busy. “Fireworks” has a hook on it courtesy of Kings of Leon. It’s catchy.

2) There is a Kanye West-produced track on the album that comes with a story. The track was made by Kanye for Beyonce, but Drake really wanted it so he wrote her a handwritten letter asking if he could use it. She read it and thought it was sweet and e-mailed him to give her permission. It’s a great track.

3) There’s a Jay-Z/Drake track that he played for us – minus Jay’s verse. Jay-Z doesn’t let anyone hear his stuff before it comes out. Drake claims it is the greatest verse Jay’s ever done.

4) I think the final track on the album is called “Thank Me Now” or something. He played us a recorded verse then did another one live and it was one of the best. Really cool.

5) He sings on a bunch of tracks on the album.

6) This Saturday Drake will be in L.A. doing a track with Dr. Dre Eminem.

7) Yes, there is a Timbaland beat on the album.
