Kanye West, Travis Scott Get Creepy in 'Piss on Your Grave' Video Travis Scott and Kanye West recently teamed for "Piss on Your Grave," an off-kilter, hallucinatory track from Scott's debut LP, Rodeo.

THE SECRET LIVES OF NUMBERS The authors conducted an exhaustive empirical study, with the aid of custom software, public search engines and powerful statistical techniques, in order to determine the relative popularity of every integer between 0 and one million. The resulting information exhibits an extraordinary variety of patterns which reflect and refract our culture, our minds, and our bodies.
