Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion Concept: Is This the Vehicular Future

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

We have often complained about the lack of truly far-reaching concept cars on today’s show circuit. Instead of creating visions of a distant future, too often automakers show concepts that closely resemble upcoming production cars; the idea is to condition the public. We may have to shelve that lament for a little while because, with the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion concept unveiled at CES, Daimler has just shown a dream car in the fully original sense.

Powered by two rear-mounted electric motors with a total peak output of 272 horsepower (and a sustained output of 163 hp), the rear-wheel-drive F 015 is said to sprint to 62 mph in 6.7 seconds, while top speed is limited to 125 mph. The electricity is generated by means of a hydrogen fuel cell; a high-voltage battery can provide short bursts of additional power.

The F 015’s body and structure use aluminum, high-strength steel, and composite materials—including carbon fiber. Its “monolithic” shape features a blurred division between the body and the windows, possibly inspired by Bertone’s classic Lancia Sibilo concept.

Bishop T.D. Jakes Suing Young Jeezy and Kendrick Lamar

Internationally-renwoned and universally-beloved Bishop T.D. Jakes is vowing to file a lawsuit against popular rapper Young Jeezy and singer Kendrick Lamar for sampling portions of his sermon without his consent.

Jakes, the highly influential televangelist who transformed a tiny West Virginia-based congregation into a transcontinental religious empire called The Potter’s House in Dallas, took great umbrage when he learned that Jeezy and Lamar used a part of his sermon for their song “Holy Ghost” remix.

Jakes took to Facebook to announce that he will be taking legal action against the hip-hop stars as he revealed he did not give the rappers consent to use any portion of his Don’t Let Chatter Stop You speech that he delivered back in 2013.

“The Holy Ghost remix by Jeezy featuring Kendrick Lamar was produced without the knowledge or consent of T.D. Jakes, TDJ Enterprises, Dexterity Music or its associated companies,” the Facebook post explained. “We are taking the necessary legal actions to stop the unauthorized use of T.D. Jakes’ intellectual property.”

The sampled clip features roughly 20 seconds of Jakes’ speech in the very beginning of the track.

Legal pundits don’t believe the lawsuit will hold its own in court, but the minister remains undeterred and unbowed.

“I’m under attack, but I’m still on fire,” Jakes roared amid a thundering congregation. “I’ve got some chatter, but I’m still on fire. I’ve got some threat, but I’m still on fire. I got some liabilities, but I’m still on fire. It’s not amazing that I’m on fire. I’ve been to hell and back, but I’m still on fire.”

While no reps for Jakes, 57, nor Jeezy or Kendrick have commented publicly about the lawsuit, legal experts are not so sure that Jakes has a strong case here.

“This sounds like a strong fair use case,” Los Angeles lawyer Jonathan Kirsch told the Daily News.

According to Kirsch, the 1994 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of the Miami rap group Live Crew could be enough to let Jeezy and Kendrick off the hook.

In that ruling, the judge decided that the group’s sampling of singer Roy Orbison’s Oh, Pretty Woman was fair use for parody purposes.
However, the Rosa Parks camp successful sued groundbreaking rap group OutKast for using her name in one of their songs without her expressed permission.

“From that Uptown to Downtown, to the Eastside to the West…..”

Epic New Orleans talent Don Flamingo (also known as EGMG‘s artist, “The Show) just released the visuals to “Slanguage”. In his usual fashion, he murders the track. This is one artist shooting to stardom so don’t say we never warned you! At the end of the day, he WILL be one of the greatest to ever spit a rhyme. Backed by super producer Mannie Fresh as well as a team of strong promoters and supporters, he is destined to go down in history.
