Lil Wayne on the cover of Rolling Stone

Fresh outta jail, Weezy has made it onto the cover of the Rolling Stone. The mag will hit the streets this Friday and you can read all about his time spent on Rikers island this past year.

Here are some notable quotes from the article

on Lebron James & Dwayne Wade not greeting him when he sat courtside during a New Orleans vs Miami game

“Them niggas never speak to a nigga,” he said. “They don’t chuck me the deuce or nothing. Nigga spent all that money on them fucking tickets… Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch-ass niggas. At least come ask me why I’m not rooting for you.”

On playing UNO in jail

“I’d bust a nigga’s ass at Uno,” he told writer Josh Eells. “We gamble for phone time. I’d take nigga’s commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.”

Oh, and here’s the cover.

Gank Skating x Panasonic GH2 x Skate Video

We here at thatsgank love cool cameras. With the likes of the Canon 5D Mark II and the Nikon d7000, almost anyone can film professional-level cinematography. The technology of these cameras is now starting to filter down into other brands and cameras, and soon all cameras will be capable of capturing images like the Mark II.

 

This particular video was shot for Panasonic  by Attiba Jefferson and Ty Evans to showcase the full capabilities of Panasonic’s new GH2 camera, as well as a variety of Panasonic lenses. This camera is quite impressive, but we must remember these are 2 fantastic film makers both of which have a great eye for the film. enjoy!

Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf x The XXL Cover

Here is the cover for March’s issue of XXL that features Eminem, Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf. The rap supergroup Slaughterhouse consists of Detroit rapper Royce da 5’9, Brooklyn-native Joell Ortiz, Jersey rapper Joe Budden and Crooked I from Cali. Yelawolf is looking to be the next big artist, so signing both to Shady records was not even a question to Eminem.

Eminem & Yelawolf on the signing

“Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse, it’s kinda phase two of Shady,” says Eminem. “It’s the new generation of Shady Records and as we’re trying to rebuild our label, it’s exciting for hip-hop and with all of these forces coming together and with what everybody’s capable of on the mic, it’s gonna be fun.”

Said Yelawolf: “Considering where I’m from and the shit I’ve been through, it’s hard to put into words what partnering with Shady means to me, my team at Ghet-O-Vision, and my state of Alabama. I can tell you that when you’re willing to give your life up to see a dream through, the reward is great. And now that I’ve become an apprentice to one of the greatest artists in the world, my potential reaches beyond anything I ever imagined. Let’s kill this shit.”

Gank Tattoo Fail

You know when you think something is hilarious at the time, and then upon reflection.. not so funny? A man has now forever branded his left thigh with a massive portrait of the Biebs himself.

Sadly, years from now the Tatty will look more like Bea Arthur than the Biebs. Tatty fail kid, that ain’t Gank.
