    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.  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...

    After a short hiatus, 140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week returns to some trouble in paradise. There's friction within the once untouchable MMG empire. Meek Mill announced the Sept. 9 release date of Dreams Worth More Than Money on Monday, which was supposed to kickstart the anticipation for the next big MMG release. Instead, the hype got overshadowed when Meek Mill...

    Well, today is the day that Lil Wayne's album I Am Not A Human Being II officially dropped. Although we're positive it will sell given Weezy's huge fanbase, we're not so sure about the content there within. If you're not in a Wayne mood today, we've got five new tracks from the past week that we're tryna show a little more love too, so give them a listen.

    It was only a matter of time before the Nike Air Yeezy colorway found its way onto a Foamposite model. Today's custom from hippieneal gives us a look of what the famous Kanye West design would look like in Foamposite form. The Solar Red lining is spot on, and the sole captures the glow in the dark soles perfectly. The question is, would you cop? Let us know using the cop or not feature!

    It feels like Alicia Keys has been in the game for a long time, since the New York native helped revive R&B in the early 2000's. Each of her albums has been uniquely successful and she's put out hit after hit throughout the years. All the while, she's stayed relevant with her piano-driven tracks and soulful voice. After 14 Grammys and a career spanning more than a decade, it seems hard to believe...

    Back in August I made a post titled "LeBron James Insane Off Season Workout Will Surprise You," which featured LeBron James pulling an off road vehicle with his bare hands.  I'll admit, the title was a bit sensationalized to grab attention, but King James' actually "insane workout" is actually here now.  The Miami Heat posted a behind the scenes look at LeBron filming a new intro video for the...

    This past week proved to be a big one for hip-hop. Definitely a week to be remembered, with three big rap albums (and one r'n'b album) all dropping on the same day (and every one knows this date by now)-- June 18. While Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller had the spotlight for the majority of the week, that's not to say there weren't some dope releases from other artists. This week in Underrated...

    The cross-section of hip hop and basketball culture is a large one with both influencing each other’s style, and stars of each hailing from the same regions.  In 2004, Jay-Z bought into the Nets for $350,000, which was only valued at roughly 0.15% of the franchise.  Although not a large investor, Jigga became the sideline face of the franchise, and was involved in moving the team from the...
