Kid Cudi Interview w/ A Bathing Ape

Kid Cudi recently spoke to A Bathing Ape for their 2010 Summer catalogue. Hypebeast took the time to transcribe what was said in the piece, but below is an excerpt from the interview that recounts a story he told of his time working at the BAPE store in SoHo.
Did you hear any interesting stories about your time there?
I remember Kanye coming in one time and I was helping him get a couple things. I forgot to take a sender off of one of the jackets he bought and I had to run out the store to catch him before he left. Pretty funny me chasing after him in SoHo haha.

Erykah Badu Claps Back At Her “Window Seat” Haters

Well we all knew Erykah’s “Window Seat” vid would cause ruckus as soon as we saw it.  And I personally loved the vid.  Mainly because I love anything Ms. Badu does–she has her own way of expression.  But plenty of people took issue with her nudity in the vid and the fact she did it on an open set in public and didn’t see the point of why.  Well she broke it down (and the concept of GroupThink) on twitter for those who were coming hard at her:
