Excerpt: “Drake: High Times at the YOLO Estate”

When Drake hears a song he wishes he’d made, “I get physically sick,” he says, adding, “It doesn’t happen often.” It happened in 2011, when he heard Jay Z and Kanye West’s “Ni**as in Paris,” from Watch the Throne. “I was like, ‘How did I not think of that?’ – ‘Ball so hard, that shit cray!’ It was real rap shit, but it felt melodic; all the cadences felt so good.” The song directly inspired “Started From the Bottom,” he says, challenging him to come up with a rapped hook just as catchy as a sung one.

(Ed’s note: Drake on love, music, life and his million-dollar estate. Read the rest here.)

Mats Gustafson gets so much depth with one color. Fashion watercolors: The first is of a Yohji Yamamoto piece and the second Romeo Gigli. (source)

“Still, wild is one of my favorite expressions — no longer because it denotes some forbidden fruit (well, maybe a little bit), but out of reverence for the untamed spirit I suspect is buried in all of us.”

— Suzanne Lindgren for Utne Reader.

One of my favorite photos currently at the #Getty by #hiroshihamaya- ‘Children Singing in a Snow Cave’- Niigata Prefecture, 1956. Hamaya is quoted about the photo, he says, “The village Toka-machi is famous for snow. On the night of the Lunar New Year, snow caves are made all over town. Children light candles, bring braziers, and have dinner inside. Adults are invited to be their guests. They sing bird-chasing songs to the beat of clappers. It’s the children’s kingdom all through the towns and villages.” …Is there anything more lovely than that?

Ah yes, the imagery of magical, glowing bubbles in the snow-covered Japanese landscape. Lovely.
Japan’s Modern Divide is on view until August 26!

Going to The Getty this weekend :)
