Elon Musk’s Boring Company flamethrowers have finally arrived. After selling out of 20,000 units totalling $10 million in presales, Elon Musk held an event Saturday, June 9 in Los Angeles, and took to Twitter to share images of the first 1,000 flamethrowers being given out and tested by customers. The devices are able to emit flames of up to two feet, and people tested them out by roasting marshmallows and posing in front of Boring Company signage.

In order to skirt regulations in the state of California and beyond, Musk is insisting that the product is called “Not a Flamethrower” and also shared “terms and conditions” for its use.


In other Boring Company news, a meeting was recently held giving updates on their planned L.A. transportation tunnel.

“Atlanta” Renewed by FX for Season 3

Donald Glover’s FX series “Atlanta” has been renewed for a third season, the network announced today. It’s currently unclear when the show will return.

The second season of “Atlanta,” dubbed “Robbin’ Season,” featured an episode entirely about Drake (which Drake apparently could not handle) and one that referenced the viral “Christian mom” video about Vince Staples. The episode “Teddy Perkins,” which was 41 minutes long, aired on FX without commercial breaks. It was later revealed that Glover stayed in character as Perkins on set during filming. The season also included new music from Thundercat and Flying Lotus.

Directed by the film’s own executive producer, Director X, you’ll find the revered music duo exchanging bars and melodies in front of a muscle car before making their way to a gentlemen’s club where they make it rain – various action scenes from the film were also infused into the footage.

Meanwhile, the tracklist for the upcoming Superfly soundtrack was debuted last week and will tentatively feature appearances from Young Thug, 21 Savage, Miguel, Lil Wayne, Gunna and many more. Hitting theaters June 13, watch the latest Superfly trailer here.

Off-White x Nike Air Presto “Polar Opposites” // Closer Look

After a surprise restock of round one, the Off-White x Nike Air Presto “Polar Opposites” appear next.

While Virgil says any “Grey” pair is in fact fugazi, our friends at Hypebeast and Flight Club have secured the “Black” and “White” — Polar Opposites, Yin and Yang — pairs said to be set for 2018.

More tonal than the 2017 take, both pairs rely on saturated uppers with contrast coming in the form of branding and tagging. An inside-out theme is present once again with the tongues literally foaming at the mouth.

Some say these shoes will release on June 21st though Abloh or Nike are yet to comment on that. For the time being, preview each pair below.

**UPDATE** On-foot shots of the White pair have been taken by Hypebeast.

Listen To Black Thought And 9th Wonder’s ‘Streams Of Thought Vol. 1’

Black Thought has released his first solo endeavor, Streams of Thought Vol. 1.

READ: Black Thought And 9th Wonder Release The Tracklist And Cover Art For ‘Streams Of Thought Vol. 1’

The five-track EP clocks in at just 17 minutes and features guest appearances from Rapsody, Styles P, and KIRBY, and is produced entirely by 9th Wonder and The Soul Council.

Black Thought spoke with NPR about why he prolonged a solo release in favor of working on music through the Roots.

“It’s always been about the greater good of our organization for me,” the rapper said. “All those solo efforts that I’ve announced, it breathes new life into the awareness of me as an artist. The Roots brand always has to be maintained, and we’re just at a place now where prime-time TV affords us a different sort of visibility and I’m able to kind of take a step back and focus on some of the other creative energy that I still need to get out. None of this is my solo album. It’s just a chance to see me in a different light doing a different thing.”

Check out the tracklist below.

Streams of Thought Vol. 1 tracklist

1. Twofifteen
2. 9th vs. Thought
3. Dostoyevsky (feat. Rapsody)
4. Making a Murderer (feat. Styles P)
5. Thank You (feat. KIRBY)

Vans & Marvel Celebrate ‘Infinity War’ with Avengers-Themed Collection

To celebrate the success of the record-breaking new blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, Vans and Marvel have come together for a collaborative sneaker collection inspired by the film.

Specifically, Vans and Marvel’s joint drop delivers vibrant new takes on the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Slip-On silhouettes. The Old Skool pays tribute to the original four Avengers — Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Thor — and the Slip-On and Sk8-Hi styles take their inspirational cues from Black Panther and Spiderman. Notably, the Avengers Old Skool is rendered in a "What The"-influenced design that blends together themes from each of the four original Avengers. Captain America’s shield, Iron Man’s chest plate, the Hulk’s bold coloring and the wings of Thor’s helmet come together for a sort of "Frankenstein" approach to the Old Skool’s look.

You can check out Vans and Marvel’s Avengers-themed collaborative collection above. The shoes will hit select Vans retailers starting Friday, June 1.

Earlier this months, Vans brought Japanese boro to the Sk8-Hi and Authentic collections.

Pusha T Says Drake Is Offering $100,000 USD For Info on Him

It looks like the Pusha T and Drake beef is far from ending. The Virginia rapper recently declared himself as the winner of his feud with the OVO mogul. King Push is also confident that Drake would not be able to dig up any dirt on him. “Let me tell y’all like this: I don’t got no skeletons," Push told The Breakfast Club. "It is what it is."

Now, it seems the G.O.O.D. Music president has more to say about the situation. On Thursday evening, Pusha T accused Drake of offering $100,000 USD for embarrassing info on him. Since he didn’t back it up with any verifiable proof, so it’s not clear how truthful the statement actually is. Read Pusha’s claim via Twitter below.

Fans are currently waiting on Drake’s response to "Story of Adidon." Drizzy is reportedly ready to "deal with the situation," according to an "incredibly good source." Drake has reportedly supported the mother of his secret child for months financially and plans to take a DNA test to prove that the child is actually his.

Supreme Is Dropping a Surprise Camouflage Pocket Tee

Alongside the expected weekly drop from Supreme — which included box logo speakers and a Martin Luther King zip-up flannel shirt — the New York label has also dropped a surprise new tee. The “Pink Camo Pocket Tee” wasn’t included in the Spring/Summer 2018 lookbook or original list of T-shirts, and features an all-over pink, grey and white camouflage pattern.

The T-shirt is the finished with Supreme’s iconic red logo as a tag on the chest pocket. The surprise tee has already dropped at the label’s London and Paris stores, and will hit the New York locations and Supreme web store later today, before arriving in Japan over the weekend. The camouflage T-shirt was on sale in London for £56, so expect a retail price around the $75 USD mark.

Supreme has recently had to pull its "Alphabet" pieces from Spring/Summer 2018, reportedly due to cease and desist order.

A Young LeBron James Gets Tatted in New Nike Ad

After picking up the Cleveland Cavaliers and carrying them on his back to the NBA Finals, LeBron James is the subject of Nike’s latest ad campaign — albeit in teen form.

The ad shows a young CGI James walk into a tattoo parlor and ask for a tattoo. The tattooist scoffs, asking, “You sure this is what you want?” But young LeBron is sure, for sure. Later, we discover what he wanted tattooed was “Chosen 1,” the tag given to him when he was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 17 years old.

James really does have the phrase tattooed on his back in real life, which is presumably where the idea for the Nike ad comes from. Considering the Cavs star has now been to the NBA Finals eight times in a row, it’s safe to say he’s lived up to the “Chosen One” billing given to him 16 years ago.

Watch the ad above and leave your thoughts in the comments.

In other news, Drake has released a statement explaining that controversial blackface photo. Read more here
