Elon Musk and Tesla are still months away from revealing the new pickup truck named Model P, but Istanbul-based designer Emre Husmen has shared his vision of what the EV pickup truck could look like with his very own concept.
Adopting Tesla's sleek design style, Husmen created a beautiful and detailed rendering of a powerful and futuristic pickup, boasting Tesla's signature solid front with fenders flowing into a streamlined windshield and roof. The narrower waistline of the vehicle draws stylish curves along the side panels of the body, keeping a clean but elegant aesthetic. A strong accented rear completes the design with a perfect display of how powerful the EV will be. The futuristic look is also complemented by sleek head and tail lights, with Tesla-consistent in-set door handles. Husmen's design definitely sets a high bar for Tesla when it comes time for its own official unveiling of the Model P.

This year, Eminem's Marshall Mathers LP turns 19, and just a month after its anniversary, Merriam-Webster added one of the album's most classic tracks — "Stan" — to its dictionary. The song depicts a diehard fan of Eminem whose crazed obsession ultimately leads to his end as a result of his unreciprocated love for the rapper. Over the years, Eminem's own fanbase adopted the term for themselves, calling themselves "stan" to show their similarly over the top love of the musician. As time went by, "stan" slowly became a term used to describe a hardcore fan of anything.
Taking into account the term's development, Merriam-Webster added it to its dictionary and now defines it both as a noun and a verb. As a noun, "stan" is defined as "an extremely or excessively enthusiastic and devoted fan". When used as a verb, the word is defined as "to exhibit fandom to an extreme or excessive degree" or "to be an extremely devoted and enthusiastic fan of someone or something". The definitions largely mirror those given to the word by the Oxford English Dictionary.

The Memphis hip-hop icon has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit noting the Astroworld track "No Bystanders" features a chant which features "the cadence and sound" that is "virtually identical and strikingly similar" to the hook on Three 6 Mafia's "Tear Da Club Up." Credited as a performer and co-writer, DJ Paul is now seeking $20 million USD in damages as he claims La Flame did not seek permission to use part of the 1997 hit song.
The lawsuit also points to Travis Scott’s 2019 Grammy performance of “No Bystanders” in which Scott changed the lyrics to “tear the club up” instead of the unedited version’s “fuck the club up.” Additionally, it is important to note despite being a Three 6 Mafia track, DJ Paul is the only member of the group cited in the lawsuit.
Travis Scott and his label are now in contact with DJ Paul, who notes, "There is no beef, just business." Stay tuned for more details as the story develops.
ScHoolboy Q isn't taking the L in his latest single "CrasH." Produced by the prolific Boi-1da, the track is a love letter to the grind as he appreciates the fruits of his labor. He also highlights the importance of his daughter in the line "If I lose, she lose," mentioning her as his motivation to work harder despite the grueling schedule that comes with being in the rap game.
As ScHoolboy Q touches on a more personal topic, "CrasH" plays at a slower pace as compared to previous singles "Numb Numb Juice" and "CHopstix" with Travis Scott. It's also worth noting that the song credits fellow TDE labelmate Kendrick Lamar ("K. Duckworth") as one of the writers similar to the aforementioned singles.
Stream ScHoolboy Q's "CrasH" on Spotify and Apple Music below and look for the rapper's upcoming album CrasH Talk to drop April 26.

Alternative R&B singer-songwriter and producer Jordan Rakei is what many would describe as a sort of Renaissance artist, avidly blending a variety of genres to create soul-stirring cuts that are brilliantly layered between his vocals and production. The New Zealand-bred artist effectually mandates a unique vision through such a melding of different aural sensibilities, staunchly treading his own path through his previous albums Cloak and Wallflower. Now Rakei has returned with the announcement that his third album, Origin, will be releasing on June 14 via Ninja Tune, commemorating the announcement by releasing the project’s third single, “Say Something.” As noted with the release of his previous single “Mind’s Eye,” Rakei takes on a theme that sonically explores dystopian visions of humanity’s future, which he avidly notes as being a thematic crux of the upcoming LP.
As is signature with Rakei’s breathtaking sound, the new single remains true to his ability to meld a variety of sensibilities, aptly combining nu jazz riffs and samples with R&B-laden vocals, pairing this with well-executed synths and electronic cues. In terms of the songwriting, the new cut sees Rakei homing in on criticism of a technology-driven society, requesting that listener’s “say something” about the questionable practices currently exhibited within tech titans and companies worldwide.

At the end of this week, Alabama street-rap champion OMB Peezy will release his new studio album, Preacher to the Streets. Now, with just few days to go until that LP arrives, Peezy is serving up a new visual for his collaborative Preacher to the Streets single with Sada Baby, "One Me." Notably, OMB Peezy and Sada Baby's "One Me" video was directed by Michelle Parker, while the song itself was produced by Detroit super-producer Helluva.
"I like struggle music, I grew up listening to struggle music. I like shit I can relate to. I couldn't relate to having no motherf*cking chains and diamonds and shit when I was coming up -- everybody can't get that shit. I'd rather rap about what everybody goes through rather than what some people get," OMB Peezy explained to 106.1 KMEL in summer of last year, sharing some insight into what influences the themes and content of his verses. "Only some people can be hopping out of Bentleys, but everybody has them struggles."

Alexander McQueen is tapping into an artsy aesthetic for its latest release, coating its signature Larry sneakers with a spray-painted design. The chunky two-tone style takes on a clean, color-blocked approach with a simple black and white scheme.

The sprayed design makes for a gradient effect on the quarter, fading into small dark speckles along the midsole. White laces and Alexander McQueen branding on the heel add finishing details to the kicks.

Earlier this month, Mark Ronson announced his next studio album and introduced the LP by sharing its Lykke Li-assisted lead single and title track, "Late Night Feelings." The introductory record on Ronson's Late Night Feelings LP, "Late Night Feelings" is one of the 13 tracks featured on the 43-year-old hitmaker's new album, which also includes collaborations with Angel Olsen, Camila Cabello, Alicia Keys, YEBBA, Miley Cyrus and others -- Lykke Li also makes a second appearance on another Late Night Feelings cut, "2 AM." Now, Ronson is teaming up with director JP Chartrand to put together the official music video for "Late Night Feelings."
"With a big artist, sometimes it’s a little more scary because there’s more expectation. There’s more pressure. You don’t want to thwart or burn any of their fans," Mark Ronson previously told Rashida Jones for an Interview feature, explaining how he approaches collaborations like "Late Night Feelings." "With my records, they’re always from my background as a DJ and playing in clubs in New York for 20 years. Everything always comes from the beat, whether it’s a live drum or a program beat on a drum machine. It’s always the groove first, and then we build the song on it. That’s how 'Uptown Funk' and 'Ooh Wee' were written. That’s how 'Bang Bang Bang' was written. All of those songs usually come from a jam and a groove that feels good, because that’s what I’m always thinking about—how people move to shit."
You can take a look at Mark Ronson and Lykke Li's new music video for "Late Night Feelings" above. Mark Ronson's fifth studio album, Late Night Feelings, is scheduled to see release on June 21 via Sony Music.
