Last night on SNL Kanye West laced up a pair of Air Yeezy 2's in an all red "Raging Bull" colorway. While sneakerblogs lit up with the possibility these would release, others were skeptical. First of all, Kanye West is allowed to design a shoe with Nike every 2 years.
You know how it goes. We've grabbed some of the tracks we thought were overlooked this past week, and placed them all in one place (here) for your enjoyment. This week it really is about rappers that are overlooked (apart from Party Next Door, who is not a rapper at all).
The lifespan of a coach in today's NBA isn't very long, about 2.5 years to be exact. While there are a few powerhouses at the top who have certain futures and predetermined plans, the majority of NBA squads are simply treading water and hoping to land a franchise changing draft pick, or pull off a blockbuster trade.
Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 player in the class of 2013, will play for the Kansas Jayhawks. Following the news, photos of a custom KD V colorway for Wiggin's highschool team surfaced, sporting a metallic blue upper, and orange to white fade along the midsole. What are your thoughts on the shoe and today's announcement?
This feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 25 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion.

The current darlings of the NBA are the Golden State Warriors, who are making only their second playoff run in twenty years. Powered by the incredible play of Stephen Curry, the Dubs picked up the slack as a team yesterday and were able to gut out an overtime win over the Spurs. Atmosphere at Oracle was electric. This run has even brought Dave Chappelle out, who was donning the gold shirt and

Throughout Welcome to Forever Robert Bryson Hall II reflects upon the last year of his career. The opening title track recalls when Logic met Nas for the first time in the line, “Shook his hand then he started quoting my lines? God damn this is real life!”
There have always been those certain players who are not to be messed with, on or off the hardwood. Whether it's because of a personal track record, physical stature, on-court aggression or a combination of everything, we'd put our money on these guys if the stuff hit the fan. Let's take a look at the players who are keeping the essence of the tough "old school" NBA alive and count down 10 N
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
Nike is celebrating LeBron James's fourth MVP award with a special edition LEBRON X MVP shoe. The shoe incorporates elements of many Lebron X releases from this past year, dubbing them the "What The Lebron" colorway. Incredible detailing along the upper ties in over a dozen patterns and colorway, with "MVP" stitched on the tongue.
Last week we questioned the grip of Will.i.am's influence on the mainstream, with his solo effort, #willpower, moving less than 30k opening week. We could also blame this on the ever-waning sales of albums in general. This week, we get LL Cool J's Authentic album as a new entry in Charts Don't Lie.
Even the grittiest of gangster rappers have their mothers to thank for much of their success, and they don't always get the credit or respect they deserve. As such, and in celebration of Mother's Day, we've compiled a gallery of 25 photos of emcees with their moms, from Tupac Shakur to Kanye West.
Each year ballers straight out of college, and from overseas hope to hear their name called on NBA Draft night. But being selected is only the first step to making a name for yourself in the league.
Alley-oops and facials in the paint dominate the average highlight reel. When you think of the best dunkers in the league, players like LeBron and Blake Griffin come to mind. But what about the guys who will kill their man with a crossover and then finish strong at the basket not with a dunk but with a floater, finger roll, dope assist, or a hanging reverse lay in? Non
Each year, 29 teams fall short of the ultimate goal of an NBA championship. Fans of the franchises that come up short can take solace in their team's performance if they exceed expectations or if a player has a breakout year. Sometimes, however, there is little to be excited about, as is the case with the unfortunate teams that made this list. Let's take a look at the most disappointing team
Recently, we featured Funk Volume's Dizzy Wright, and his stand-out track "Maintain" on Track Breakdown, and today we return to the Funk Volume crew, but this time to get some more knowledge about Jarren Benton's single "Razor Blades & Steak Knives," produced by Kato.
This week continues to be a good one on the hip-hop front. Today alone saw new projects from Logic and Harry Fraud, yesterday we got August Alsina's mixtape, while last week we got projects from J. Cole, Chance The Rapper, and the list goes on.
This new feature highlights a hand-picked selection of some of the bigger tracks of the week. We have chosen a few of the tracks that landed within our top 25 most played, focusing on those that stood out, and left room for discussion. This edition features J.

David Jones, aka Jetpack Jones, is a rising 22-year-old emcee from Lakewood, California.
The new entries keep coming in on Charts Don't Lie. Recent weeks have seen quite a few releases that are within the hip-hop realm, as is often the case, because rappers like to release projects on the same day. This week, however, the new-comers to the charts don't come in as strong as you might think. Pop-friendly rapper Will.i.am moved under 30k for opening week with his solo album #willpower.
