  • Kanye West Fell Asleep At LeBron's "The Decision" Taping
    9,169 Views
    Following Dwight Howard’s “Dwightmare” this year was tiresome, and fairly annoying, but it was nothing compared to LeBron James’ decision of where to “take his talents” in the summer of 2010.  As you’ll recall, it all ended with a nationally televised special, “The Decision.”  A program in which LeBron James was interviewed by Jim Gray at a Boy and Girls Club surrounded by...

    This week on Charts Don't Lie some of the less consistent rappers have fallen off, while others prove they're on the charts for the long-term. We already knew Justin Timberlake would be here awhile, after he went platinum in very little time following his album's debut. However, there are some chart main-stays which we couldn't have predicted when the album initially dropped-- such as Macklemore...

  • 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...

  • Kid Yells To Shaq "Don't Ever Disrespect Houston Again"
    9,045 Views
    Never need much of a reason to insult Dwight Howard, Shaq put him on blast after he left the Los Angeles Lakers to join the Houston Rockets, saying “not a whole lot of people can handle being under the bright lights,” and adding, “I think it was a safe move for him to go to a little town like Houston.”The people of H-Town (America’s fourth most populated city) obviously didn’t...

    On paper, hip-hop and opera seem like completely different styles of music, but many producers have shown us otherwise. Using dramatic, often high-pitched vocal samples, they add a theatrical element to rap tracks. The vocals can come from samples of actual operas or, more commonly, presets on synths or keyboards, and they've been used by everyone from Three 6 Mafia to RiFF RAFF to Tech...

    As an actor, Common has definitely been in some major mainstream flicks and get his due recognition for it. As a rapper, Common borders on the underground/conscious scene, although he's not fully immersed in it because he does do double duty acting. Nonetheless, this is often reflected in his album sales-- he's not the kind of artist to do crazy big numbers, although both Be and Finding Forever...

    It's possible that you've come across WELL$ at this point. We first featured him with the socially aware and haunting "Lil Tommy", but since then he's delivered "Dreams Of An Insomniac" as well as a music video for "Django"-- these three records alone are enough to show you the talent lingering within the North Carolina native. We instantly gravitated towards his music, and decided it was only...

    8,957 Views
    A couple weeks ago, Derrick Rose made headlines with a proclamation that he - in his own eyes - was still the NBA's best player. The statement seemed deluded at the time, what with Kevin Durant scoring at an All-Time rate, that LeBron guy doing basically everything at an All-Time rate, and Rose having not played in over a year. That said, this was coming from a player who'd won an MVP during...
