Banksy strikes again, as he visited New York City this weekend. He set up a pop up shop in the city’s famed Central Park, in an effort to dupe the masses. The pieces all had an estimated value of over $40,000 and were all available for the one time only price of….$60. That’s right, 60 bones. See for yourself.

This would be one awesome collaboration. Kendrick Lamar recently met up with actor and recent music video director Shia LaBeouf to talk about possibly working together. Here’s what K. Dot had to say about the meeting and the possibility of having Shia direct one of his videos.
“We actually had a meeting… Shia LaBeouf, he has a crazier career than mine, but once we really do sit down and lock in, it’s gonna be insane… He wanted to do a video, he had a few ideas… that was the time I was recording the album and going on the road so I couldn’t really sit down for a period of time.”
Being at Magic this past week there was one booth that really stood out amongst all of them, it was all people could talk about. This was the crime scene booth displayed by SSUR. It was full of guns, drugs, money, and dead bodies. Some people got what the brand was trying to portray and some didn’t. So here’s Russ Karablin from the brand explaining the meaning behind such a graphic scene.
This painting is hanging in the flower section of a Manhattan Whole Foods and we found it on BuzzFeed. It’s Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as Kate and Leo from the famous front of the boat scene in Titanic.
