    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!” A certain hunger and drive are present in the Maryland native's voice. The intensity and the leisurely style that he rhymes with have...

    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...

We encourage your opinions.  Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't...

    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. The old school rapper only moved around 13k, and so we gotta ask, what factors played into his...

Non This list is the about the...
  • Rihanna Looking Hot Courtside

    Closely linked and even rumored to have been in a relationship with Knicks' super-sub, J.R. Smith, Rihanna isn't only a Knicks fan, she also supports New York's other squad, the Brooklyn Nets (recently she even donned a LeBron jersey at a Heat game so it's fair to assume Ri Ri doesn't have any strong NBA allegiances.)  Rihanna was on hand for the Nets' Game 7 matchup, as they hosted the Chicago...
