Stance Socks Celebrates 'Ready To Die' Anniversary With Sweet Chick Collaboration

Friday (Sept. 13) marks the 25th anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.'s masterpiece debut Ready To Die, and Stance sock company teamed up with hip-hop elite and friends of Biggie to celebrate the occasion.

On Thursday (Sept. 12) evening, Stance hosted a party at Nas' chicken and waffles restaurant Sweet Chick in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Guests were served cocktails and food themed after Biggie's lyrics (i.e. "escargot, my car go" and "a t-bone steak, cheese eggs"), while enjoying music spun by Statik Selektah, who unveiled a Jadakiss verse over Biggie's "Mo Money Mo Problems" that he says was from the song's original sessions. Attendees of the party included DJ Clark Kent, CJ Fly and Termanology, along with performances by Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Lil Cease and Tek of Smif-N-Wessun.

The evening also revealed a Stance and Sweet Chick "Sweet Chick Down To My Socks" collaborative sock, with a design similar to Biggie's beloved Coogi sweaters. The sock will be sold exclusively at Sweet Chick locations and online for $16.

Sept. 13 also marks a reissue of Ready To Die, with limited edition packaging, liner notes by journalist and author Kathy Iandoli, never-before-seen photos, and stories by producers Easy Mo Bee and Chucky Thompson.

DaBaby Hops On Lil Nas X's 'Panini' Remix

Lil Nas X knows what works for him, and it’s remixes to his already popular tracks. The 20-year-old worked with the likes of Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug and Mason Ramsey for the remixes to his record-breaking song, “Old Town Road,” and now he’s back with a DaBaby assist on his new single, “Panini.”

The “Panini (Remix)” video features characters from the popular Cartoon Network show Chowder, who are rapping and singing along to Lil Nas X and DaBaby’s verses. The video for the original video is sci-fi inspired, and a performance reminiscent of the visual was held during the 2019 MTV VMAs.

“Panini” currently sits at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100, while “Old Town Road” is at No. 5. It was No. 1 for a record-setting 19 weeks on the chart, longer than any other song in American music history.

Watch the new video above.

Prince's Estate To Reissue '1999' Album With Unreleased Songs, Concert Footage

Prince's album 1999 became one of the most important albums ever after its 1982 release with songs like its title track and "Little Red Corvette," and in coming weeks, the late musician's iconic work will see a rerelease with more than 30 new songs.

On Nov. 29, Prince's estate will partner with Warner Records to rerelease 1999. And along with the original classics like "1999," "Little Red Corvette" and "Delirious," the reissue will also have 35 unreleased tracks "from Prince’s legendary vault that showcase the creative flow Prince had tapped into during this era," according to a press release. During the time, Prince created songs that he would give to Vanity 6 and The Time, and otherwise stow away.

Fans will be able to consume the project in three formats. The Super Deluxe Edition includes a total of 65 tracks across five CDs and ten 180g vinyl records, including 23 previously unissued studio tracks recorded between November 1981 and January 1983, along with a live audio performance of the 1999 tour recorded at a late show in Detroit, MI on Nov. 30, 1982. The Deluxe Edition will come with two CDs, four vinyl records or streaming, and the remastered album will come on one CD, two purple vinyl records and streaming.

The CD and vinyl sets also include a DVD with another complete, previously unreleased concert from the 1999 tour recorded at the Houston Summit on December 29, 1982.

According to the press release, the Super Deluxe Edition also includes Prince’s previously unseen handwritten lyrics for several songs, including “Little Red Corvette,” rare images from Prince’s early ‘80s photographer Allen Beaulieu, and new liner notes by longtime Rolling Stone critic David Fricke, Guns N’ Roses bassist and author Duff McKagan, Minneapolis historian and radio host Andrea Swensson, and Prince scholar Duane Tudahl.
