Paper Magazine just released their Winter 2014 issue titled “Break The Internet Kim Kardashian” with Kim K. on a double cover . Both covers focus on Kim’s ass. Kim on the first cover is unclothed, ass out and glossier than ever. The second cover photographer Jean-Paul Goude recreated his “Champagne Incident” shoot, shooting kim from a different angel, wearing a black dress, popping a bottle and filling her cup as it comfortably sits on her ass. NSFW
For our winter issue, we gave ourselves one assignment: Break The Internet. There is no other person that we can think of who is up to the task than one Kim Kardashian West. A pop culture fascination able to generate headlines just by leaving her house, Kim is what makes the web tick.
We tapped legendary French photographer Jean-Paul Goude to recreate his iconic “Champagne Incident” shot and all we can say about the images inside, which we’ll be releasing on Thursday, is…holy fucking shit. This issue has got so much more in store so be sure to check back next week. – Paper Mag.

“A n*gga ain’t reached his climax, but I go hard, and I’m up-and-coming.” That line from NameBrand’s new song, “Whips,” sums him up perfectly. He doesn’t exactly have a Gucci Mane or Future-scale of work attached to his resume and he’s still grinding to earn the necessary spotlight, but what he does have is some exceptional talent as an emcee, the right work ethic, and some big names recognizing it. TDE-affiliated producer Willie B is the one providing him with the beat and standing by his side in this new video, and Sha Money has already snatched up the Long Beach rapper for Epic. You dont always need a blog-baiting gimmick or big Summer single to get yourself going on a climb up the top. Like rappers Danny Brown and Freddie Gibbs have shown, sometimes you just need an Olympic level of ability to receive some recognition. You can check out the Edward Tran-directed video for “Whips” above, while NameBrand’s forthcoming mix tape, The Great Tape 2, will see release on November 24. – Hypetrak
