America’s most revered fashion brand is finally stepping into the digital age. The Polo Ralph Lauren app is here.
As an additional layer to their year-long 50th anniversary celebration the house that Ralphie built is going mobile. The new platform will allow consumers to not only purchase apparel but also embed themselves deeper into the RL lifestyle.
“This is a shoppable app, but that’s not really what it’s about,” says David Lauren, Chief Innovation Officer. “Our goal here is to create a culture and community that we’re a part of, where we can speak to our customers and learn from them.”
Subscribers will be privy to exclusive content, collection previews, rare pieces, vote on designs and an “Ask Ralph” section where the man himself will answer fan’s questions every week. In the coming months other features will be added including a forum where Ralph Lauren wears can be traded amongst users.
“There are so many people who have been buying, trading and selling Ralph Lauren, that we thought it would be interesting to create something that united this community, so that they could meet each other and learn about other collectors” Lauren detailed.

Along with the app the company announced a New York Yankees inspired collection. The limited-edition line will include a satin baseball jacket, a New Era “RL 50” hat, a Wilson baseball glove and a branded Rawlings baseball.
As a longtime Yankees fan Ralph Lauren will throw out the first pitch during the Yankees and Boston Red Sox game on Thursday, September 20. The collection will be available soon after on the Polo App.
The app is available on Apple iTunes.

Nintendo’s success with their mini consoles is definitely having an effect on the video game world. First Sega announced its Mega Drive (Genesis) mini, and now Sony is throwing its name in the hat with the PlayStation Classic Mini Console.
Its been almost 25 years since the groundbreaking home console, the PlayStation was first introduced to the world. The console was an instant hit with gamers eventually becoming the first console to ship over 100 million units offering for the first time the chance to play 32-bit games with real-time 3D rendered graphics in the comfort of their homes.
If you are one of those gamers who wanted to get that feeling again of pressing that power button and seeing the iconic load up screen Sony has good news for you. Today the company announced its new retro console, the PlayStation Classic and it’s gorgeous. The console perfectly emulates the original and is approximately 45% smaller than the original PlayStation console. It also comes with two classic controllers, an HDMI cable to connect with today’s televisions, USB cable. Don’t worry no physical memory cards will be necessary, the system will have a virtual memory card to save your game data.

As far as what games will come with the system, it will come pre-loaded with 20 classic PlayStation games, fan-favorites such as Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms is among classic titles that will return with the retro console.
The PlayStation Classic will launch on December 3rd, 2018, the same day the original console hit shelves in Japan back in 1994. As far as cost, it will only run you $99.99 and is now available for pre-order at select retailers such as GameStop and Best Buy. So you better move fast cause you know this bad boy is going to sell out quickly. We just hope Sony handles this release a bit better unlike Nintendo when they first introduced the NES Classic.
Michael Jordangrew up playing basketball in Wilmington, N.C. ahead of his stellar professional career. The NBA legend donated $2 million to relief efforts in the region after Hurricane Florence battered the North Carolina coast.
The six-time NBA champion and Charlotte Hornets owner donated $2 million on Tuesday to assist residents of the Carolinas — $1 million each to the American Red Cross and the Foundation For The Carolinas’ Hurricane Florence Response Fund.
“It just hits home,” Jordan told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “I know all of those places: Wilmington, Fayetteville, Myrtle Beach, New Bern, and Wallace, which is where my father is from. So quite naturally it hits home, and I felt like I had to act in a sense that this is my home.”
The 55-year-old Jordan said he still has an aunt, cousins and several buddies who live in coastal North Carolina. He also has a nephew who attends UNC Wilmington, which has remains closed while recovering from the damage.
Jordan typically shies away from the public spotlight on matters outside of basketball and his longstanding Jordan Brand. The Hall of Fame star says he intends to visit Wilmington at an unspecified time to visit with the team he owns, the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets, to aid in efforts on the ground.
Tracks like “What Means The World To You” and the title track produced by world famous Harlem DJ Ron G led the album to a great reception from Cam fans, but the commercial success was on hold until the Dipset revolution.
Salute to Harlem World vet Cam’ron, Untertainment and the rest of the crew that helped make this project a Hip Hop classic!
Drakehas been linked with baddie after baddie, one of the so-called perks of his fame but it hasn’t always worked out well with those among the throng chasing clout and cash. The Canadian superstar is now embroiled in a legal battle with a woman who allegedly accused the rapper of rape and getting her pregnant, with Drizzy launching a lawsuit claiming she tried to extort him for millions.
Drake claims in the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, he met Layla Lace last year during his Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England. He says after one of his concerts in February 2017, they hooked up at his hotel where he says they had consensual sex and “Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex…”
In the lawsuit, filed by celeb lawyer Larry Stein, Drake says Layla went ballistic when he sent her home rather than taking her on tour with him.
The lawsuit contains a number of text messages Layla sent Drake in the following weeks, saying how much she missed him and so on. Drake says she created a “fantasy relationship” with him and, at a point, didn’t have the “time or energy to respond” and he says that set her off.
Lace took her claims of being pregnant public last year, including appearing on Shade 45. Drake’s side said Lace refused a paternity test but added that she went to New York authorities to claim she was raped in a one-night stand. Authorities in Manchester cleared Drake of the charges but the suit alleges Lace began demanding millions in exchange for silence.
Lace is facing charges of civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process in the lawsuit.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen of the SOHH and getFRUSH community, the best franchise in EA is back (yeah I said it). FIFA 19 is upon us. Don’t get me wrong, Madden is fun, but FIFA has consistently put out greatness regardless if you like soccer or not.
Not only do you get to take your favorite team to the UEFA Championship, you also get to again build your dream team in Club Creator mode. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Here are five reasons you should buy FIFA 19 for your Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch!
1. Alex Hunter Story
Remember Alex Hunter, Danny Williams and Kim Hunter? I hope so, because their story mode has been great in the previous games. And now, it’s coming to a conclusion. Play through their stories and help guide them to the glory they deserve at the highest level. Along the way you are presented with tough decisions, game challenges, and other scenarios which put you in the position of a professional soccer player. How will the story end? Pick up the sticks and find out.
2. Club Creator
You think you can build a championship caliber team from the ground up? We all talk the talk but how many of you actually can manage personalities, finances, and a demanding fan base? Well, this is your chance. You think NFL fans are tough, you don’t know soccer fans and their passion for their team. Give this new game mode a shot as you start from the bottom and have to grind your way through a season handling all aspects of the team from the manager to maybe a disgruntled player.
3. New Shooting System
The shooting system has added a MAJOR wrinkle this time around. Once easy to control, is no longer the case. Skill is definitely involved when it comes to shots on target. Not only do you have to be accurate but timing is EVERYTHING! If your timing is off you can go ahead and embarrass yourself, the announcers will call you out on it too. The volley system has significantly upgraded as well. But, don’t worry the training environment has changed enough to help guide you through the changes. So, if you need time to adjust, you get ample time to do so. It’s a great adjustment to a game which was already great.
4. Career Mode
Much like the other titles in the sports genre, the most popular is the career mode. And this one is no different. From playing as Alex Hunter and his story, to creating your own manager/player, you can lead some of the greatest teams in the world to glory. You think you could lead another team to a 100 point season like Manchester City did last year? Or have your player be the youngest to ever win the World Cup? Here’s you chance to prove your player belongs on the same pitch as Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.
5. More Control/Creativity
Something which was lacking from previous editions of FIFA was the ability to get creative with your player and how he/she handled the ball. Now, comes something similar to NBA Live’s freestyle stick. Fake out the entire defense with your own unique ‘handle’ on the soccer ball. Can you impress your national team enough to get selected? Or will you end up like Leroy Sane with all the talent but something was missing to be left of the team. Show off your best moves and make sure to post them online so the FIFA world can take notice.
With the finish of the World Cup and the start of the soccer seasons around the world, it’s time to get excited for FIFA 19. I stand by my statement it’s the BEST franchise in EA. Much how we feel about NBA 2K and Madden, is how the entire world feels about FIFA. Anyone and everyone can get in on the fun, I’ll see you all on the pitch/sticks.

The Ying Yang Twins performed for a special Crunk reunion set during the ONE MusicFest in Atlanta earlier this month. Festival goers were certainly in for a treat as they took us down memory lane along with, the Young Bloodz, Trillville, Eastside Boyz and more.
The “Whisper Song” rappers stopped by Two Bees TV and revealed that they have new music on the way. “New music coming shortly. Just stay tuned. Same ol’ Ying Yang channel.” Kaine says. D-Roc also details what it’s like having his son working under his label.
The duo has been off the radar ever since the Crunk era died out. But they’re aware of the genre’s impact and D-Roc even said he always knew the Southern sound would currently dominating mainstream Hip Hop.
Early versions of the New York Times highlighted a photograph Tiffany Haddish and Angela Bassett giving Rachel Brosnahan her Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy, with a caption in which Bassett is recognized as Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Drake filed a lawsuit against a woman who claimed that the rapper got her pregnant. He insists that she’s trying to extort him and also made false rape allegations against him.
In the documents obtained by TMZ, Drizzy met Layla Lace last year during his Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England. He says they hooked up once after one of his shows in February 2017 and had consensual sex and “Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex.”
In the claim, recorded by celeb legal counselor Larry Stein, Drake says Layla went ballistic when he sent her home as opposed to taking her on tour with him.
The claim contains various instant messages Layla sent Drake in the next weeks, saying how much she missed him amongst other things. Drake says she made a “fantasy relationship” with him and at a point, didn’t have the “time or energy to react” and he says that set her off.
In April 2017, she posted on Instagram and out of the blue asserted she was pregnant, saying, “So I guess still in this era this is the new thing that after you tell a dude you pregnant they stop answering they phone!!!” According to the claim, she threatened to go public with her messages to Drake. As promised, she went on Sirius XM and claimed the Canadian rapper got her pregnant
The suit proceeds to affirm in May 2017, Layla contracted a legal advisor and requested cash for her baby and threatened him with defamation because TMZ published a story saying they never met.
The suit claims Layla declined to take a paternity test and Layla and her attorney went radio quiet. Drake says the entire thing was a trick. “There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall.”
As indicated by the claim, Layla tried to switch up the story and alleged that the Scorpion rapper raped her during their one night stand. Drake says by then Layla enlisted another attorney who requested cash or else they would make a public rape complaint.
As indicated by the suit, the case was alluded to Manchester police, who talked with him and at last cleared him.
Drake is suing her for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
Offset’s adorable son, Kody, takes after his father in more ways than one. In a heartwarming video uploaded to Instagram, the Migos rapper recorded his 3-year-old rapping in the mirror while his neck is on froze.
Kody seems to be rapping gibberish for the most part, but he does it so confidently while making hand motions like trigger fingers and pumping his arms like his father. Apparently, he has been to a couple Migos concerts. He seems prepared to join the family business.
Although most coverage is of his baby, Kulture, with wife, Cardi B, Offset is clearly a loving father to all his children. Back in March, Offset celebrated Kody’s birthday with a huge party. In a video posted by Uncle Murda Beatz, the rap dad grabs a mic and freestyles a rendition of “Happy Birthday” to his boy.
Kody, meanwhile, stands nearly frozen as he watches his father serenade saying, “happy birthday” and “it’s the 3 way.” Offset even raps toward the end, “Too sleepy/He not gonna move.” At the end of the performance Offset drops the mic and opens his arms for Kody to run up to him. Watch that precious moment below.
