Kanye West’s famed SOHO apartment is now on the market for $ 4.5 million.  The fourth-floor unit, located at 25 West Houston St, which has seen the likes of Amber Rose AND Kim Kardashian (all in the same year), is said to feature a few unique "installations".  Aside from the very minimalist nature of the decor, ‘Ye’s got some very interesting details around the pad.

According to the NY Post, a broker explained that there is a long slender basin located five feet away from Kanye’s bed in the master bedroom. 

“It’s the height of a normal sink, but it’s a huge, long, granite object, probably about 9 feet long but only a couple of feet wide. At the front is a sink.  It was long and extremely narrow and very artsy-looking."  The broker continued, “The apartment is amazing. If you like modern and sleek spaces, this is it.

Also, after vistors enter the apartment and walk down a narrow hallway, they are greated by a statue.  “It looks like an angel, or a little boy Cupid, and it’s on a raised platform”

We’re sure most of Kanye’s prized possession are now in Paris (it seems that’s where he wants his next home to be in addition to the one he’s looking for with Kim in L.A.), but folks who actually saw the interior noted that the master suite’s walk-in closet had a dozen pair of expensive sneakers (mostly all Jordans) and there was an angel statue in the living room.

Trey Songz puts the camera on his native hometown of Petersburg, Virginia in his latest visual for ‘Top of the World.’ The uplifting song appears on his fresh mixtape, ‘Anticipation II,’ and his upcoming EP, ‘Inevitable,’ which hits stores Nov. 28.

Directed by Songz and John Ledbetter, the six-minute video begins with the singer holding hands in prayer, giving thanks to the city that “raised him” before treating local residents to a special dinner on the football field. We also see Songz giving back to his community, providing haircuts, watching cars and playing basketball.

Near the end of the video, we see Trigga walking through his old neighborhood with the community behind him. “If I could I would bring the whole ‘hood to the top of the world, with me / It’s my world, for free / Trying to get what you came to see,” he sings.

The clip ends with this encouraging message from Trey Songz: “They say never forget where you came from. I won’t because it made me the man I am today.”
