On August 5, 1966, Martin Luther King Jr., and about 700 protesters marched through an outer Chicago neighborhood called Marquette Park to protest housing segregation, an ignominious endeavor in which the Second City may well have earned first place. The ethnic whites who lived in Marquette Park had no patience for King or his message. One of them, according to the Chicago Tribune, proudly displayed a sign that said, “King would look good with a knife in his back.” The sentiment was shared by many of his fellow citizens, and King was dead less than two years later. But blacks moved into Marquette Park anyway, though it was never truly integrated: unable to stop the influx, the whites simply left. Today, the neighborhood is only about 5% white, the Eastern Europeans having long decamped deeper into the suburban mosaic, ever farther from the lakefront city with its restive dark masses.

To drive is to command
Step into Ghost and take control. Every detail has been meticulously designed to create a dynamic feel - from the modern finishes to the contrast leather highlights. However, nothing will distract from the pleasure of driving. The new seats have been carefully sculpted to ensure you are in the perfect position and the controls are at your fingertips for effortless driving. Wherever your journey takes you.
An infinite attention to detail
The hand-stitched leatherwork takes over two weeks to complete, with nine hides required for each interior. Pre-shrunk and drum-dyed so the colour permeates right through; the soft, supple full-grain leather will never squeak or crack. Choose from a wide range of mono and contrast colour combinations in natural, full grain or perforated leather.
Only the finest materials
Each set of veneers comes from a single tree, creating a seamless flow from facia to rear compartment. Select from classic burrs like Palado or choose straight-grained Malabar for a more contemporary ambience. There are also crossbanded options to choose from such as Walnut Burr. Each piece is hand-polished to create a deep flawless shine.
A perfect pitch
The Bespoke Audio System has been refined to create a unique sound. With an incredible 18 speakers throughout the cabin, each has been carefully optimised to deliver the perfect acoustic balance. Depending on your mood, you can choose from two settings: Studio or Theatre for a completely immersive surround experience.
A new sense of purpose
The twin-turbo, 6.6 litre, V12 engine takes Ghost from 0-62 mph in a mere 4.9 seconds. This pure power is now beautifully accented by a wake, which elegantly tapers behind the Spirit of Ecstasy. So you can effortlessly surge through the world, following in her path.
A precise power
The new design at the front of Ghost Series II immediately hints at the power beneath the bonnet. The LED headlights have an instantly recognisable, modern shape, which is beautifully framed by the unbroken daytime running lights. This powerful look is further accentuated with the subtle sculpting of the bumper, while the chrome finishes on the lower grille create a contemporary feel.
A perfect complement
New 21" wheels are available making a bold, powerful statement. You can choose from five different wheel designs with two different finishes, each with its own special character. Every wheel features unique self-righting wheel centres that always correctly display the Rolls-Royce monogram and the classic 2:1 proportions of the wheel to body height is key to Rolls-Royce DNA.
When it comes to innovation, simplicity is key. With the Spirit of Ecstasy Rotary Controller you can access directions, the internet or music and even scribe letters onto the touchpad with a mere swipe of your finger. You can enter navigation instructions or call up contacts simply by using your voice.
A car that anticipates what lies ahead
Satellite Aided Technology uses GPS data teamed with the navigation system to scan the road. It then reacts before the driver and automatically chooses the right gear on the eight-speed transmission delivering power smoothly, without any unnecessary gear changes. So you can surge round every twist and accelerate out of every bend.
The essential information where you need it
Everything inside Ghost is designed to make driving intuitive. The Head Up Display projects driving information such as directions and the speed limit directly onto the windscreen, allowing you to concentrate on the road ahead.
A clearer vision
A discreet infrared camera in the grille detects body heat of pedestrians and animals up to 300 metres away. Their thermal image is shown on the Control Centre Display, giving you time to pass them safely. Thanks to the high-resolution 10.25" screen you will enjoy a crystal clear picture on the Multimedia Interface. Every detail has been considered, right down to the 3D city view in navigation, which gives you a realistic interpretation of streets and buildings.
Rolls-Royce Connect integrates innovative functions into your car from your iPhone. Your chosen RSS news feeds will keep you updated on the move and you can listen to any radio station from around the world. With Google™ Send to Car and Local Search you can transfer your chosen destination directly into the navigation system, so you know where you are going as soon as you start the engine. In addition, a wireless hotspot makes browsing the internet on any device easy.

Coke Boys Newest Signee, Velous Confirms He Is The Producer For Kanye West’s Upcoming ‘All Day’ Single
Rising recording artist-producer Velous has been a very busy man these past few months and by “busy” i’m not referring to the vague excuse you give your side jawn when you don’t feel like answering the phone.
The New York native kicked off the summer by supplying the hook for DJ SpinKing‘s smash hit record ‘Adult Swim’, which featured Tyga, A$AP Ferg and Jeremih. He then followed up the release of the star-studded cast record by announcing he was the newest member of French Montana‘s Coke Boys Imprint.
Today we are proud to officially declare that the young creative and Meek Mill aficionado is the producer for Kanye West‘s highly anticipated ‘All Day’ single.
