Making its auction debut at the Sotheby’s New York Evening Auction of Contemporary Art auction last night, Jeff Koon’s Popeye sculpture sold for an impressive $28,165,000. Sotheby’s reports that the seven-foot-tall “monumental sculpture conjuring the spirit of Warhol’s Pop art masterworks” was purchased by hotelier Steve Wynn and will be displayed in one of his hotels in Las Vegas.

Leading up to the sale, Sotheby’s produced the video above that features Contemporary Art Worldwide’s co-head Alexander Rotter giving a brief history on the cultural importance of the Popeye character and his appearance in works by Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol from the early days of Pop Art.

Makonnen – “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” [Audio]

Monday, May 12, 2014 by | No Comments | Category: Music, Rap, Uncategorized


Sitting in the studio with Rome Fortune the other day and he asks, “Have you ever heard of this new guy, Makonnen?” To my surprise, I haven’t heard a peep. So he cuts on this song, “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” produced by Sonny Digital. I instantly see why people like dude. I’ve spent some time on his soundcloud, and I am impressed with his originality and authenticity. With producers Sonny Digital, Mike Will, Fki, Hoodrich, and other producers behind him, I expect big things from Makonnen. This might just be the record of the summer, in Atlanta for sure.
