So apparently there’s a Flag of New England… It is this historical artifact that has inspired the newest jersey launched by the Revolution. The away jersey uses elements from the Flag of New England with red jersey featuring a white chest and fringes of green on the neck and collar.

The flag can be found on the back neck in all its glory, but it comes with a twist: The Revs logo is faded into the solid red part of the flag. A full description of what it represents is found on the jock tag on the lower left corner of the jersey and it reads:

“Dating back to 1775, this flag represented the New England colonies in the Revolutionary War. This jersey celebrates the bond between the club and its supporters, who fly the flag today.”

GZA-The-Mexican

GZA and Tom Morello hit up The Tonight Show together Tuesday night for a performance of “The Mexican.” The Wu-Tang Clan rapper and the Rage Against The Machine guitarist gave a live debut to their collaborative cover of the 1972 single by British rock band Babe Ruth.

Their version largely stayed true to the old B-boy favorite but it all really lit up when Morello delivered another one of his enigmatic guitar solos and breakdancers arrived to their thing to the classic tune. Check that out above.

Community is making its comeback this month via its new home Yahoo! Screen and today they’ve made available the trailer for Season 6.

The trailer shows that the new season will be all sorts of ridiculous and hilariously over-the-top, so it’s basically everything us fans of the show could ask for. Check it out above.

It appears as if the Kanye West X Vic Mensa affair is not just a one-time thing… Kanye put on a secret show during his extended stay in London and there he debuted a new collaboration with the SaveMoney leading man with a live performance of “U Mad.”

The Stefan Ponce-produced banger was actually first debuted as a Vic joint that we got to capture when the latter performed a highlight-filled show at the Metro last Fall for the annual SaveMoney Black Friday.

Seeing it get elevated to now having Kanye on it is just badass. See a clip of that performance above.

Chicago > Everything.

New York Red Bulls 2015 Primary Kit

Now that NYC has a proper city rivalry brewing with NYCFC playing their inaugural season this year, the city will now also be divided in the traditional red vs. blue debate.
