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.
Drizzy is making the rounds to promote his new album Nothing Was The Same and his most recent stop was to NY for the Alife Sessions. They shutdown the city and Drake brings out some pretty impressive special guests. Watch the video and find out who.
Rick Ross has apologized a number of times now for his rape related lyrics, but some people are taking those bars very seriously and want Reebok to drop Rick Ross from their brand. So a huge protest went down the other day in New York where 70,000 + petitions were signed by people wanting Rozay removed.
Here’s where it all started from.. (2:05 mark)
Then Rick Ross went on the radio to explain himself…
There might be a new statue of John Lennon going up in New York City and the images of that statue just surfaced. This would be a great addition to the city considering his legendary image and that he lived there. Click HERE for more info.

This is a game changer for sure! The city’s Board of Health approved Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ban on large sugar-sweetened drinks at its monthly meeting Thursday morning. Nine members voted for it, and one abstained.
According to The Huffington Post, under the plan, all restaurants, fast-food joints, delis, movie theaters, sports stadiums and even food carts will be barred from selling sugar-sweetened drinks in cups larger than 16 ounces.
There is a bit of a public outcry as to why this would happen, and some store owners are also concerned sales may go down, but you have to admit, that’s a great way to combat obesity. Read more at the post above, Mayor Bloomberg had some interesting things to say. We’ll see if this lasts long term.
This was one of the biggest festivals in the US this year, and we’ve got the photos to prove it! Over Labor Day weekend, Made Event presented Electric Zoo 2012, and once again transformed New York City’s Randall’s Island into a multiplex of music, lights and dancing, along with 100+ of the world’s best and brightest electronic music artists. The 3-day bonanza hosted 110,000 avid fans with sold-out capacity crowds on Saturday & Sunday.
Bigger than ever in its fourth year, Electric Zoo’s technological advances helped transform the festival landscape. Intellitix’s RFID technology was again embedded in wristbands to help festival-goers enter quickly through the front gates. The stadium-scale Main Stage featured high-resolution motion-controlled video panels that created a massive sense of scale, which could be reconfigured live to create unique looks for each individual artist. The Riverside Stage included custom-designed 3D LED technology used for the first time ever at a live electronic music show. Meanwhile, the Hilltop Arena saw a wall of LED panels and mirrors set at specific angles, working in tandem to bathe the tent in a sea of lights and lasers. And over at the Sunday School Grove, original custom-designed school buses integrated LEDs with 3D projection mapping to create an immersive mixed-media experience. In every tent, club-quality sound systems enveloped fans with impeccable sound engineered by Integral Sound.
