Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Officially Seeing Each Other!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are officially dating! Kanye and Kim are either masterminds as non-public relations people or they are decidedly going public as an item.

Amber Rose, Ye’s ex-girlfriend, has been insisting more than a friendship had been blossoming between the two, even while she dated the now-designer. Remember when Khloe said the flagrant pair “tried dating”? To be fair, she didn’t say when (raised eyebrow).

According to TMZ, Kanye and Kim are indeed dating and the two are ‘just starting.’ The indulgent duo was photographed leaving a theater after taking in “Hunger Games” in New York City on Wednesday.

Snoop Dogg Set To Release “Rolling Words: A Smokeable Songbook”

Snoop Dogg is introducing an all-new way to get in-tune with his music.

Rolling Words, Snoop’s newest book release in collaboration with Pereira & O’Dell, is not only a collection of some of The Dogfather’s greatest lyrics, but also a fully functioning one-stop shop for smoker enthusiasts.

The book, which is composed of hemp-related materials, features rolling papers as pages and a striking strip on its spine for lighting matches.

And for those of you wondering, the ink used to pen Snoop’s lyrics are fully non-toxic!

Of the collaboration, strategic brand director Nick Adler said, “Honestly, we were kind of blown away.” Pun intended? “It’s a fantastic brand extension for us, and totally captures the vibe and sprit of Snoop and our platform.”

Superhead’s Dropping A New Book – “Drink F*ck Sleep”

Drink F*ck Sleep is the title of Karrine Steffans new anthology of stories from novice writers. But, we think the title could also allude to how she spent many of her nights with some of your favorite rappers. The former video-vixen turned author is now the owner of her own, Steffans Publishing, a venture that will release books from authors other than Steffans herself.

Russell Simmons Says A Prayer For Trayvon Martin

Justice is not enough for Trayvon Martin.

Yes, justice is what we all want for Trayvon.

Justice is what he and his family deserve.

And justice is what I’m confident that they will one day receive, hopefully in the not too distant future.

But no, justice alone is not nearly enough for Trayvon.

If his senseless death can somehow lead to anything of lasting value, it will only be an awakening to a much larger truth.

And that is that we are ALL connected.

President Obama touched on this truth when he said that if he had a son, he would have looked like Trayvon. But if we are to learn anything from these past weeks, we must wipe off our collective lenses and see the larger truth as well: Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich’s sons all look like Trayvon too. This is because no matter what color our skin, no matter whether or not we wear a hoodie, no matter who we fall in love with, or even what gender we are, at the end of every day, we are ALL the same.

Not 50 percent the same, 75 percent the same, or even 90 percent the same. No, we are all 100 percent the same. From Trayvon Martin to George Zimmerman to Barack Obama to me to you, there is not one degree of difference between us. We are all just little drops of water tossing around in the same big ocean of God.
