Pop, Lock And Recap 8/3 Edition: Where Art Thou Dear Frank?

Pusha T’s Play Cloths, a brand in conjunction with Karen Civil, got the infamous Hillary delete your account tweet memorialized on a shirt. I can't get over the irony that the proceeds from the shirts go to an organization trying to end mass incarceration, and the  1990s Clintons sent that shit into fast forward.


Jeremy Lin has kept busy since being acquired by the Nets. First, he shocked the world with his new haircut fit for any hookah thot in the Heights and now, he stars in a youtube Space Jam 3 spoof.


Yeezy season is perpetual it seems as the rapper cries and worships his wife in his new video for Wolves, which doubles as a Balmain ad.


Nudes will get you out the paint quicker than you can see cheese, but apparently not racist tweets. God bless Miss America. Karlie Hay won the teen title and shortly after old tweets of her saying the n-word surfaced and she pulled the ole "I've grown a lot" card and it seems like the pageant is rockin' with her. Which is pretty unfortunate but what can we hope from an organization that was owned by Trump until last year.


Bow Wow aka “Shad Moss” is not voting because you know, he’s mixed?! Because that's how this elections cycle is working.  It is both sad but hilarious that he really thinks that being mixed exempts him from voting lets hope people show out in November, god help us all.


Snooki, the best part of Jersey Shore has become a little youtube star being a mom, and made a fun clip to celebrate young mommyhood.


Frank Ocean scammed us once again and of course, we fell for it. The artist had a stream of what seemed to be Shop Class 101 on his website all day Monday. Many including myself, were hoping for an album and of course rumors are abuzz that we’ll get it Friday. At this point, I’m not going believe anything until it's in my ears.


If you can't beat em join em right? Well that's the approach Instagram is taking, adding a Stories feature which very similar to Snapchat.
