Russell Westbrook surprised us by returning to action this past Sunday as he was expected to miss at least two weeks.
Russell Westbrook surprised us by returning to action this past Sunday as he was expected to miss at least two weeks. Well, it looks like he's not only back on the court but already in mid-season form, and I don't just mean his superhuman athleticism and rim-destroying dunks, but his off-court style.

Lloyd Banks' pedigree as an ill emcee speaks for itself at this point. During G-Unit’s active days, Banks was widely considered the best pure spitter in the group. Very little has changed in that regard; if anything Banks' career since the early 2000s has distinguished him as one of the most technically savvy rappers out. F.N.O. (Failure's No Option) only makes it easier to argue the case.

Eminem is undoubtedly one of the best rappers of this generation, but his ability to freestyle it pretty untestable as well. His rhymes are intricate, complex, and sometimes just plain crazy. This list shows off Shady’s rare ability to spit off the cuff. Whether it has been in a group or rapping solo on a beat, the rapper embodies the art of freestyling.
Check out the Biebs just doing it big in a Brazilian brothel! Yes, that is him under that sheet with those Bapes on. Dude tried to throw a sheet over his head and escape low key with some babes, but paparazzi don't sleep - not even in Rio. Got to applaud the effort. Veteran ET move.
