Thanks to a few special sensors that detect electric current and some genius wiring, musician, J. Viewz, shows us how he makes ornate productions with his local groceries. Seriously, the guy makes bells out of some grapes and bass drums out of eggplants! Check it out.

No stranger to drama and controversy, it seems like Miamibased rapper, Rick Ross, is in the middle of the crosshairs yet again. This time the incident was literal as the megastar’s vehicle was shot at after a birthday celebration at a local club. HipHop journalist, Elliot Wilson, chimes in to try and separate the facts from the fiction. Personally, we think that he does a terrible job of defending Ross’ “street credibility” and the allegations that the incident was staged. It’s too cloudy to know or say what really happened, but we do know that Ross and Wilson do share enormous HipHop comradery via past press conferences and publicity. Not sure we’re getting an unbiased opinion here. It’s also interesting to consider that the average Rick Ross lyrics are laced with drugs, guns, deaththreats and bravado talk. Life imitating art again?
