The “Comfort-Inn” songstress tells Rap-Up how much she loves the song. “I love it. I love the song,” Jhené says. “It’s definitely a song to put on with my friends when we’re hating all the men in our lives, which is often. I love when she raps.” We love it too!

Over the weekend, Tyga made yet another power move and opened up the flagship store for his successful clothing line, Last Kings, in his California hometown. Inspired by ancient Egypt, T-Raww spent over $120k decorating the store on Melrose, which included a $20k Egyptian-made tomb. The other $100k went toward painting the ceilings like the Sistine Chapel, tons of little details and even sand imported straight from Egypt! Hey, if you don’t invest in your dreams…who will? Go hard or go home! Check out pics from opening day in the gallery and video below. Congrats to the whole LK team!
The KD 6 “Aunt Pearl”, is set to release this Thursday, with a similar floral pattern but paying homage to breast cancer awareness. The “Floral” Nike KD 6 EXT features an all floral canvas upper in various hues of Blue, Orange, Yellow, and Teal. Black accents hit the KD branding, laces, and Swoosh, while an icy translucent outsole and White midsole finishes up this unique make up. These are definitely one of my favorite colorways, thus far from the KD 6. No release date yet, stay tuned for more details. Hit the gallery for more pics.
