A quick preview of what is to come from Benny in 2010.

I knew Jay-Z would be bringing his tour back to North America as he hit only a couple places earlier this year. Well it is now confirmed, with Young Jeezy opening, Jay-Z will be bringing the back The Blueprint 3 Tour in 2010. The list of cities and dates can be found after the jump, and tickets go on sale on November 13, 2009. Looks like March 24, 2010 will be my day as Jay will be hitting the HP Pavilion in San Jose.
Mercedes-Benz’s homage to the original Gulwing 300SL has finally been revealed and it looks pretty good. I am sure you have seen the iconic 300SL in some way, whether it be from when it originally released or in kanYe’s Diamonds music video, so you know what the inspiration was for this new supercar. I would say the front 3/4 of the car is beautiful, but the last 1/4 of the car in the rear looks hideous. I mean it clearly resembles the old Acura CL[picture for proof], which is not a good thing in any way. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to drive this car, but I think they could have done much better in the back. The SLS AMG will be revealed in its entirety next week at the Frankfurt Auto Show, so check back then for better pictures. For now take a look at the ones after the jump.

Nike will be answering the prayers of Griffey fans again, but it was kind of random to follow the Griffey Max I with these. Nonetheless they are appreciated and hopefully this means Nike has a plan to retro all of the Griffeys. These don’t drop till next Spring, so we got a ways to go still.

I cannot believe how strong Audi’s presence in the auto market has been lately. Although we are in a recession, it seems people are not holding back at all from the premium German auto maker. There sales are up and they beat BMW and Mercedes Benz in the last year, growing their market share in the United States. There is obviously some truth to this, as they have easily the most solid lineup of cars out right now design wise. From the LED lights to the aggressive grill to the sporty wheels, there is lot to love about the new Audi look. With the start of the R8, Audi redesigned their brand around the new look and it seems to be paying off. In no way is Audi stopping, and later this month they will be unveiling their A8 flagship sedan. Their have been some renderings based on test models of the car and it appears the new sedan will look like the picture above. As you can see the A8 takes after its older bro the R8 with the large grill and curved LED lights in the front. Check back later this month for more pics and info.

With their upcoming season of sports games releasing, EA Sports came correct with their soundtracks. Madden 10, NBA Live 10, NHL 10, and FIFA 10 all have their unique soundtrack catered to the average player of each game. I think NBA Live 10 has the best lineup with artists like De La Soul, Wale, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Mickey Factz, and Murs. Take a look at all of the lists below after the jump to see what you will be listening to.

It’s no secret that Apple has been working on a touchscreen tablet and it appears that it will finally be here in early 2010. Above is an artist’s rendition of the 10-inch 3G enabled tablet that is expected to release in the first quarter of 2010. The new product will fit in between the iPhone and Macbooks among Apple’s lineup. It will be powered by a custom ARM-based processor made by Apple’s latest acquisition P.A. Semi. This may be the reason for the delay, as Apple may have had an Intel Atom processor in mind but switched to the custom processor when they bought P.A. Semi in early 2008. All of this is rumors though until anything is official from Apple, but don’t be surprised to see this next year.
Yes the Infrareds are back, not the Air Maxes of 1990, but the Air Jordan of 1991. Jordan Brand will be bringing back the ever popular colorway in 2010 to please its followers who missed out on the original retro in 2000. The pictures were a little washed out, so I just edited the photos to make it look more how it will probably end up. As you can see the sneaker has the iconic bright Infrared color alongside the icy sole to accent the all black upper. But there is definitely something different. The upper looks to be made of suede this time instead the original nubuck materials. For me it is not such a big thing, but I am sure some OG collectors are dissapointed. JB looks like the might be pulling me back with these, the Space Jam XIs, and True Blue IIIs all releasing in the next 12 months. It should feel good to put on a new pair of Jordans again. So lookout for more changes as nothing is final until they drop next January in 2010.

Yup Buzz, Woody, and the gang are back in 2010. Disney Pixar’s Up just opened up this weekend and they used the oppurtunity to show off the preview to the highly anticipated sequel to the Toy Story movies. Toy Story 3 will make use of 3D for the first time in the trilogy, which I think is kind of a gimmick. I’m sure the movie will be incredible but it it kind of weird thinking about the release date because I will have graduated high school right before that. 2010 here we come.
This car is gonna be dope, obviously style wise because of the gullwing doors infamously from the 300SL. Can’t wait to see pics of the finished car.
The 2010 E-Class coupe is the new version of the CLK coupe and is among many other changes Mercedes Benz has made to the E-Class. The E-Class is one of the last cars from Mercedes to get the full design overhaul and I still do not like it 100%. I think the coupe looks a lot better than the sedan, but I think the BMW 6-Series and the Audi A/S5 look a whole lot better. I really like the S-Class and the new SL roadster but it just looks like Mercedes tried to do too much in the front and not enough in th back of this car. The four headlights look awkward and I think the Lexus GS looks much better with the same type of design. The car will be previewed at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show, but I have plenty of photos so you can make your own opionion after the jump.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
Lupe explains a lot of things including Japanese Cartoon[which he still denies is him], writing a book, CRS[ChildRebelSoldier], and the release of his final album[which is really three albums].
His plans for LupE.N.D.
E: Everywhere June 2009
N: Nowhere December 2009
D: Down Probably June 2010
Either way I cannot wait for these two albums this year. Last two were great, these next three should be just as good. He says he does not know what’s going on with CRS, but I hope they put out at least one album. Lupe along with kanYe and Pharrell are probably the busiest men in the industry since they all have albums and fashion labels to make, so it will be really hard to squeeze in a quality project this year. We can only hope…

Really Mercedes? This is the best you can do after making beautiful cars like the S-Class? This car looks straight up like a Chinese variant, no offense to the Chinese, but this def does not have that Mercedes appeal. I guess the front looks somewhat decent, but the back just looks like a disaster. Mercedes took like 30 steps backwards with a car like this.
