Wiz Khalifa Stars in Rag & Bone’s Men’s Project Campaign

Wiz Khalifa continues to show off his fashion prowess.

Following the launch of his BASH clothing line on Oct. 15, Khalifa’s been unveiled as the face of Rag & Bone’s new Men’s Project campaign.

Wiz is featured alongside Mark Hamill, John Turturro, and Mikhail Baryshnikov. When speaking to Billboard co-CEO Marcus Wainwright shared this regarding the “Black and Yellow” artist’s selection.

 

“We were trying to find people who had forged their own path, and had a very strong sense of their own personal style and that’s certainly true of him. It was also a natural extension of the relationship we had with him, after doing some clothes for his tour and dressing him for the Met Ball. He was all over the press for that; he was wearing a white tuxedo we made, and he owned it. It really highlighted how good something classic and well-made can make anyone look.”

SFPL Music: Atlantic Records Own PJ Drops “Oh Yeah” ft. Marko Penn

pj-oh-yeah

From writing hit songs for artists like Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, & B.o.B, to working closely with Lupe Fiasco, Atlantic Recording artist PJ is ready to step into the spotlight. North Carolina raised and Atlanta bred, PJ brings a unique new sound to R&B that’s life-affirming and positive, an essential outlook the industry currently lacks.

PJ started off 2016 with the smooth & mellow “Wishlist,” featuring K Camp, followed by the inspirational “Man Up,” and continues her string of uplifting records with the infectious “Oh Yeah,” featuring Marko Penn & produced by B. Ham.

” ‘Oh Yeah’ is just a motivational song that I did with my friends B.Ham and Marko. I’m like a big fan of Coldplay, so I just wanted to trap that melody out and do something different with it,” PJ says.

You can expect her upcoming EP, Rare, to be released before summer.

The Daily Word: Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian Pose For A Selfie in Act of Solidarity, Kanye and Wiz Patch Things Up.

Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian Selfie

Last weeks theme was beef, this weeks theme is one of peace! In what we like to call the selfie seen around the world, both Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian decided to break the internet by both posting the incredible selfie on their respected Instagram accounts.

Tea anyone?

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Amber also followed Kim on Instagram, plus Kourtney and Kylie both liked Kim’s selfie with Amber and The Shaderoom caught the action.

Now how did this all come to fruition? Well according to TMZ, Kim Kardashian reached out to Amber and set up the meeting. They reportedly met up at Kris Jenner’s home and “hashed” things out between them. Now the move comes after Amber pretty much dropped ether in the form of two tweets at her ex-beau now Kim’s husband  Kanye West after West said some nasty things about her and her son.

Now the public isn’t quick to buy in what Kim and Amber are selling. Just look at the results of this poll created by Page Six asking folks should believe if this is a genuine kiss and make up session or a some sort of publicity stunt.

Of course world renown photoshop king Peejet made fun of the epic moment in pop culture as well.

Kim wasn’t the only person Amber kiss and made up with, it seems she is also on good terms again with her bestie Blac Chyna as well.

The two were spotted together at a party Chyna was hosting at Ace of Diamonds in West Hollywood.

The forgiveness train just didn’t end with Kim, Amber and Chyna. Looks like Kanye and Wiz also got in on the act as well. Now it’s quite understandable why Wiz was very upset with Kanye after Yeezus spoke negatively about both the mother of his child and his son. Wiz was well justified to issue Kanye a fade on site if they ever met up with each other. Well it looks like Kanye won’t have to be watching his back anymore after ending the beef with this tweet.

sorry

Well now that the beef is squashed, we can now focus on Yeezy Season 3 and Waves, Swish or So Help Me God whatever the name of Kanye’s new album is when he officially drops it this month.

The internet as well couldn’t let the moment pass without poking fun at the moment. Hit the gallery to see the hilarious memes about the epic selfie.
