There are few people on this earth more responsible for the transcendence of music, art, film, fashion, and gender roles to all walks of life than David Bowie. The world lost the Starman on January 10, 2016 to a bout of cancer but his legacy will most certainly live on longer than all of us.
More specifically, his music has fueled generations of skaters, snowboarders, and surfers alike. Always reinventing and never satisfied with what he had just done, his was a life of innovation that continually challenged the status quo.

Kendrick Lamar is always trying to say something. There's always a lesson, a moral, and a warning running just beneath the surface of his music, and the new video for his To Pimp A Butterfly cut, "You Ain't Gotta Like (Momma Said)", animates the Compton MC's young-kid-gets-caught-up motif to perfection. If you're into that sort of thing (don't worry, it's not preachy), then give it a watch and a listen.
