Don’t Be Mad, Kanye! Solange Named Puma Creative Director



Well, Kanye West is not going to be happy about this. HipHollywood has learned that Solange has been named the art director and a creative consultant at PUMA. Beyonce’s hipster sister announced the news online, writing on Facebook and Instagram:

“After years of art directing my own projects and visuals (music videos, photo shoots, album artwork, web content ect) … I am SO EXTREMELY EXCITED to finally announce that I am now able to apply my passion for all things design into my new position as an Art Director and Creative Consultant for the iconic @PUMA!!!

It is in my new role that I am able to express my love for not only design but the conception of creative ideas, and the execution of them by curating amazingly talented teams.

I’ve had so much fun producing special content, ad campaigns, events, and working alongside the awesome Puma team with some of my favorite emerging artist, photographers, graphic designers ect. to create activations that really celebrates both mine and Pumas approach and philosophies.”

Solange’s first project for Puma is titled, “Girls of Blaze,” and will be released in February 2014. Congrats, Solange.

As for the Kanye reference, the rapper has been blasting executives at Nike for not giving him a creative position with the company after he designed an über successful shoe for them. Just last night in Brooklyn, the rapper slammed Nike CEO Mark Parker. “Mark Parker even talked sh–, talking about, ‘We don’t even know why people like the Yeezys,'” Ye told the crowd. “They like ’em like they like the Jordans, because I was in fourth grade getting kicked out for drawing Jordans.”

From Gangsta To Gospel … Snoop Dogg Shuts Down Critics Of His Spiritual Album



Who says a gangsta rapper can’t drop a gospel album — apparently, the critics.

Snoop Dogg released his spiritual effort, Bible Of Love, today and unfortunately some folks just don’t understand why. Thankfully, we talked to Uncle Snoop and he let the haters know they won’t be dulling his shine.

“My spirit is in the right place,” Snoop proclaimed, “so for those who have backlash or something to say, their spirit ain’t right.” But Unc didn’t stop there, he went on a preached a word right quick … “I thought the Bible said Jesus was in the streets mixing it up with the real, bringing the real back to the fold.” Yep, yep, that’s exactly right!

But just because he has a gospel album doesn’t mean Snoop ain’t still street. “I come from the hood and I come from the church so they can’t out do me,” he reminded us.

Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?

Bible Of Love is available now!
