Kanye West covers Billboard‘s annual Power 100 issue alongside Universal Music Group artist Lana Del Rey and UMG chairman/CEO Lucian Grange, who ranks No. 1 on the magazine’s list of power players. The 2015 Power 100 list also includes Apple’s Jimmy Iovine, Roc Nation’s Jay Brown, Epic Records’ L.A. Reid and Sylvia Rhone, and Cash Money’s Birdman and Slim.
And the good news keeps rolling in for Kanye. In addition to several expected appearances at NYFW, he will perform at the Grammys on Sunday with Rihanna and Paul McCartney and headline the first-ever Roc City Classic event on Feb. 12 in New York.
We’ve got a first look at the Kanye West x adidas collaboration. It’s dubbed the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost and the high rise sneaker comes with a light sand suede upper and a special Boost outsole. As far as we can tell, one sneaker is expected launch next week with a full collection to follow shortly after. Check out the “countdown” clock here.

Chris Brown and Tyga have unleased another track from their joint project, Fan of a Fan: The Album (due February 24th). And this one carries a controversial title, “Bitches N Marijuana.” The track was crafted by producer Nic Nac (who also produced “Loyal”) and features a cameo from Schoolboy Q.
In other Breezy/Tyga news, Chris tweeted that he’s completed his community service and the ‘Between the Sheets’ tour is back on! While Live Nation’s previous statement postponed tour dates in Charlotte, NC scheduled for Monday, February 9 and the Greensboro Coliseum Complex scheduled for Tuesday, February 10, these shows may go on. Check Livenation.com for more information on the rescheduled dates.
And you’ll recall, Chris posted an apology on his Instagram that a judge would not sign off on his travel to do the tour until he finishes the last 100 hours of community service. It’s great to know he got the job done.
