Ross: When you see compilations like this, you see longevity. With us, we have people who are on top of their game. But we want to bring more artists into the fold, and give young artists an opportunity to be on the same playing field with us. That in itself speaks volumes to someone at home chasing their dreams. AP: What was going through your mind when you first saw yourself on “Magic City” as the character Butterball? Ross: Honestly, when I saw myself come out from around that corner, I was really amazed by how handsome I looked. It’s like I got to see myself outside of seeing myself. I said to myself, `Wow, that’s an attractive (expletive) there. Not to mention, he’s rich.’ I just kind of laughed at myself. All the calls I had coming in, everybody was (messing) with me, picking at me and saying how I charged out to the car. They said I was talking like I was not me. I told them, `So what … I’m a boss.’ AP: Do you want to act more?

Photos: Splash News, Drake Yolo Polo OK, so they didnt exactly hear out our request to add Wheelchair Jimmy to the collection, but the creators of the Drake Yolo Polos are back on the meme scene, and theyre still reppin hip-hops most adorably awkward moments with dedicated embroidery. Like that time when Miguel accidentally went all WWF on a fan at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, or that other time when paparazzi caught Jay Z making a hilarious face while diving off a yacht in Italy alongside his beloved Bey-Bey . Stars! Theyre just like us! Except they don’t get to wear OUR pretty faces on their shirts, so I’d consider this a win for the normal people of the world. But seriously, these awkward celebrity moments were made to be remembered on 100% cotton shirts, and I dont know about yall, but I think I just found a reason to go golfing. Miguel’s kick gets embroidered on a Yolo Polo. Photos: Drake Yolo Polo What started as a one-off novelty item has quickly taken on a life of its own, thanks in part to the mystery behind the genius. We still dont know whos making these embroidered masterpieces, but were preeeetty excited about the new additions. Obviously, the bigger question here is really, how do we wear them?! Do we go schoolgirl chic with a tartan skirt and platform Mary Janes? Pretty preppy with high-waisted, straight-leg pants and a pair of sensible flats?! Or should we just upend this crazy, mixed-up world with some unexpected edge and pair our Yolo Polos with head-to-toe leather?! However it comes together, Im calling dibs on #THEJAYDIVE in grey.
