By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Wale is rubbing elbows with some very high fashion women for the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The MMG rapper recently posed for a shoot for the fashion magazine with supermodel Bar Refaeli and designer Diane von Furstenberg.

“Youngin Doin it Big!! Harpers Bazaar with my ladies@barrefaeli and the LEGENDARY @DVF new #balmainleather ???? #wrkngtitle doin numbers . Thanks for yall support,” he tweeted, along with a photo of his arms wrapped around the power ladies’ calves.

Per Necole Bitchie, everyone’s favorite pop culture photographer Terry Richardson shot the images.

Wale is a lover of clothes. He told GQ last year that he can’t live without his Hublot watches, WRKNG Title and his Stance socks. “That’s love,” he said about the socks. They’re family. I don’t even have a favorite, if they make it, I have it. I wear every single pair I got.”

Diddy Hits Studio With Rick Ross To Mix Mastermind Album

The release date for Rick Ross’ Mastermind album was pushed to 2014, giving Diddy time to work his magic on the project (which is one of MTV News’ Most Anticipated Hip-Hop Albums of 2014). Rozay revealed that the music mogul will actually be mixing his LP.

He shared the news on Twitter during a studio session early Friday morning (January 10).

Ross and Diddy have been close friends for some time, with the Bad Boy CEO even appearing on the Miami rapper’s Rich Forever mixtape, and now they’re furthering their working relationship.

Rozay recently dropped the Jay Z-featuring single “The Devil is A Lie,” and he probably has a few additional surprises in store.

Childish Gambino Uses Fake Porn Site to Promote ‘The Deep Web Tour’

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Taking a lead from his album title Because the Internet, Childish Gambino launched a fake porn site to promote The Deep Web tour. Gambino tweeted, “for advanced tickets for my #thedeepwebtour ask abella about “tickets”: http://abella.xxx .”

abella.xxx is a fake sex chat site starring adult star Abella Anderson. When “Tickets” is typed into the chat query, a link to The Deep Web Tour website comes up. A similar theme was used in Gambino’s “3005″ music video. In the visual, the actor/rapper and Anderson have a PG-13 sex chat.

The Deep Web Tour kicks off in London on February 4, and then hits the United States for stops including New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom and the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

For those wondering, “The Deep Web” also known as the so-called “dark web” is the hidden part of the Internet reserved for largely illegal activities like sex, guns and drugs. It was recently featured on the cover of Time.

Hip-Hop Had A Strong Connection To Last Night’s BCS Championship

auburn-card2

By Sean Lynch

The BCS era of college football ended in dramatic fashion on Monday night (December 6) as No. 1 Florida State defeated No. 2 Auburn at the hands of freshman quarterback, and Heisman Trophy winner, Jameis Winston. Winston’s two-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left sealed a win for the Seminoles. But Hip-Hop’s presence at the 2014 BCS Championship was the talk of Pasadena, California.

Auburn tailback, Tre Mason may just be a star to those lucky enough to catch more than a glimpse of the speedy running back on their television sets. But Mason has heavy ties to Hip-Hop, heavier than you would think. Tre Mason is the son of Vincent Lamont Mason Jr. whose stage name is DJ Maseo otherwise known as Plug Three of De La Soul. The Hip-Hop trio are pioneers in their own right, but last night the elder Mason was a proud father, as he found his son on the big stage.

The junior running back found himself in the running for a Heisman Trophy, turning in a remarkable season. Highlighted by a 164 yard game in a win over Alabama, only to follow that up an SEC Championship record-setting 304 yards on 46 carries against Missouri. Last night was no different as Tre carried the ball 34 time for 195 yards and a touchdown. Making his case for any questioning his contention last year for the Heisman trophy.

But Tre wasn’t Hip-Hop’s only connection to the Auburn Tigers. The offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, who just six years ago was running High School Sports The Magazine, used a very unique way of calling in plays to his Quarterback and team. Auburn’s offense play cards sported images of Jay Z, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Ron Burgundy for their plays. An unorthodox-method in college football but surely an unconventional way to mask the offensive scheme.

Take a look at some of Hip-Hop’s tweets from last night:
