Jay-Z + Jack White= "Ray Bans"

Thanks to Lyndsey S. for the find!!!

Jay-Z and Jack White Collaborate On New Track Titled "Ray Bans" (Studio Session Pics)

We'll just leave you with this for banter, Yes Please! Jay and Jack were in the studio working their collaboration titled “Ray Bans” at Third Man Records in Nashville, TN. Apparently, it also appears that Hov's wife Beyonce and Amy Winehouse were also in attendence during this studio session as well (Hmmmmm.... Lets hope more than one song was worked on.)

In an interview with GQ UK earlier this year White said of the hook up: “I just did a record with Jay-Z...We did a song together a few weeks ago. It was incredible. I played him something that I’ve been kicking around for a while and he immediately came out with words for it. It’s unbelievable-sounding.

This track is shaping up to be the most anticipated record to watch out for this year (Sorry Dre.)

UPDATE: Photos taken down at the request of the Photographer.

Troy Lee+ Oakley

Adding to a collaboration from the past, Troy Lee pairs up with Oakley again to customize a Jupiter LX model for Oakley's Signature Series. The front of the frame is featuring an illustrated graphic with the frames via a multi-colored 7-layer process to create a contrasting effect. Not sure of the color of the lenses, but those seem to be another key feature. These are available online at the Oakley site or any by special request at any Schaeffer Eye Center.
