Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Vic Mensa are teaming up for a brand new track.

The trio’s previously unreleased collaboration can be heard in a commercial for South Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster’s “Collection 13” campaign (via Complex). Skateboard P and Vic lend their vocals to the atmospheric song, which was written and produced by Kanye and Malik Yusef.

It serves as the soundtrack to the futuristic visual promoting Gentle Monster’s latest eyewear. A bleached-haired Mensa also stars in the four-minute clip alongside “Boardwalk Empire” actor Michael K. Williams.

Their collaboration is part of Gentle Monster’s upcoming “13 MUSIC” project, which will feature additional artists.

Kanye and Vic have collaborated in the past on “U Mad” and “Wolves,” while Ye and Pharrell previously teamed up on 2006’s “Number One” and the remix to “Everyone Nose.”

Justine Skye Granted Restraining Order Against Sheck Wes

Justine Skye has taken legal action to protect her against her ex-boyfriend.

According to documents obtained by The Blast, the R&B singer filed for a domestic violence restraining order against the “Mo Bamba” rapper, whose real name is Khadimou Rassoul Cheikh Fall. Her request was granted and Wes has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from her until a hearing next month.

The restraining order comes just days after the “Build” songstress claimed Wes and his crew tried to jump her and her new boyfriend, GoldLink. “Taking a walk with my friends and my man and Sheck Wes (my abuser) and his friends decide to STALK US and attack my friends,” tweeted Skye. “Two cars full of ni**as while he sat in the car like a bitch. You’re pathetic sheck and you beat women. You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again.”

She also shared surveillance footage of Wes jumping the gate at her house. “I literally have footage of you jumping over the fence of my crib to attack me Sheck,” she added. “Your lies are even more disrespectful.”

Wes has denied the accusations. “I’ve chosen to remain silent until now out of respect for actual victims of abuse,” he tweeted. “But I cannot stand by while lies are repeatedly told about me. I never hit or beat any women and I did not beat up or jump anybody.”

In her restraining order request, Skye detailed the Feb. 11 incident where she claims Sheck “orchestrated a plan to stalk me and viciously beat my boyfriend and our friends in front of me in public.” She says at least 10 other men were involved in the attack.

As a result, Skye said she does “not feel safe and I believe my life is in danger.”

She also described an episode from July 26, 2018, which details more alleged abuse. “[Wes] threatened to punch me in the face, headbutted me, told me he was going to ‘hurt me,’” Skye said in the report.

Additionally, she shared a text message conversation between her and Travis Scott’s DJ Chase B, which describes the July incident where she locked herself in a room following a violent outburst. “I think he’s breaking things,” she wrote in the text. “I’m fuckin terrified.”
