This will sure give UPS a run for their money. Amazon has revealed “Prime Air”, a new way of delivering packages using a drone.
The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles. Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance the technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations.
In hopes, the FAA’s rules will be in place as early as sometime in 2015, making drones in the sky as common as a mail truck on the street.

Skyzoo is getting together with Philadelphia producer Antman Wonder and they are preparing to deliver ‘An Ode To Reasonable Doubt’, Skyzoo is paying homage to the album that influenced many, Jay Z’s ‘Reasonable Doubt’ and he gives his explanation why! “For me, Reasonable Doubt was and is one of the most cohesive bodies of work in Hip Hop,” Skyzoo says in a press release. “The way Jay painted exactly what that side of the fence was, from the highs and celebrations, to the lows and worried phone calls, to the emotions of someone truly with the weight of the world on their shoulders. It was as honest and clear cut as you can get. As a fan it made me want to learn every word and as an artist it further shaped my storytelling and approach to writing.” They’ve set to release the project on Hov’s birthday, December 4th, at a negotiable price.
Looks like the phenomenal year for Drake is far from over. Whilst he tours the States on his Would You Like A Tour tour he found sometime in his busy schedule to sit down with VIBE Magazine for a quick chat. During the chat Drake revealed he plans to release the Hit-Boy produced “Trophies”, the “Wu-Tang Forever” remix and 3-4 more songs before the year ends. Aubrey hinted at an Aaliyah featured record & a YG featured record but said he will NOT be releasing an EP but will more than likely release all the records in one night, abit like how he did “Versace”, “The Motion”, “Jodeci Back” earlier in the year.
