Click image to watch Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s “True Detective 2″ spoof
It’s been less than 48 hours since the season one finale of True Detective and Jimmy Kimmel is already throwing shade, live from Austin, Texas at SXSW. With Seth Rogen joining him as special guest tonight, he unleashed his rendition of what the second season of the HBO series would look like if it were up to him.
Most of the scenes should look familiar to you if you’ve been following the show, except this time, they have slightly different endings (we can’t see the real Rust Cohle quoting Cher, singing duets or getting cozy with Marty Hart). That beer fort was pretty funny, but things got extra bromantic for Jimmy and Seth in the big fight and ending.
No mention of whether the light was winning, though.

Nigel Sylvester and Pharrell aka Brooklyn Machine Works made their grand entrance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet last year and have continued to put on for BMX all over the globe ever since. In an interview with The Red Bulletin, Nigel talks about using some of P’s songs to ride out to with inspiration, using his bike as his form of expression. Pharrell also stands up for Nigel and says that he shatters the stereotype of a BMX rider. He had a dream and made it come through, straight out of Queens.
“He’s an artist. He’s carving the air.”

Remember when we saw Chance The Rapper alongside Skrillex and Mike Will Made It in the studio? Then Skrillex debuted the song at a show and we heard a low quality phone camera rip of the track. For those who have been waiting for the studio version of it, here’s the big Skrillex & Chano collaboration in all its glory.
If this follows the same trajectory that A$AP Rocky‘s “Wild For The Night” did, it’s about to be out of here. It’s the perfect blend of Acid Rap and uptempo EDM.

Action Bronson is a fool. This you know. But it’s even more apparent in part deux of his “Adventure Time” vlog. In part one, we saw him jump off yachts and cook gourmet inside the boat. For the second round, he jumped into a crowd of 50,000 people and got piggy back rides from fans, performed only four songs, then got off the stage to eat pastrami.
Sounds like the good life to us. Bronsolino, we salute you.

When you know, you know and Sebastian Mikael is making sure his significant other knows how real it is too. For his new video “Forever” from the upcoming album Speechless, he pleads that he’s changed from his old ways and just wants to see himself together with his shorty for the rest of life. We’ve all been on that side of the coin before, especially of you’ve been through hell and back in your relationship.
It’s a long road sometimes, but it’s all worth it at the end of the day.

She is making her debut tomorrow with the album Love On The Run, and one of the standouts on there is the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Just Fuckin.” As you can tell by the title, the track is a slow jam ready for the bedroom or any time those carnal urges come alive.
It ain’t love, it’s just fucking.
