Black Magic: 9 Hip-Hop Tricks We’d Like To See David Blaine Perform


Forget Charlamagne Tha God—David Blaine is a true shock jock. The illusionist/endurance champ/warlock reminded the world just how jaw-dropping he can be on Tuesday night (Nov. 19), when his 90-minute special Real Or Magic aired. On it, he literally exploded the brains of Kanye West, Jamie Foxx and Macklemore with some of his wildest stunts, including impaling himself with an ice pick without spilling a drop of blood. Quality TV, for sure. But it takes a bit more to impress the folks up here at VIBE. So David, if you’re reading (or telepathing) this, we’ve got some challenges of our own. Show us what you’ve got. —John Kennedy
