LeBron took to instagram to show off his Drake inspired sweatshirt, but also gave us a glimpse of an unreleased "Volt Dunkman" Nike LeBron 9 Elite.

The only signs contrast from the fierce creation is the black inner lining and branding at the 3rd lace slot. What's the word; Cop or Not?
The chemistry between Wayne and Drake is surreal. Even though Drake is considered Lil Wayne’s protégé, he has diligently worked his way up to his boss’ level and might have even superseded him.

Jay Electronica is now 38 years old. It's been nearly eight years since his first mixtape surfaced on the web, nearly five years since he signed with Roc Nation, and nearly four years since he claimed his debut album was finished. Album delays are commonplace these days, but four years? We heard a version of "Shiny Suit Theory" days after Jay E.

The Jordan "Silver Anniversary" Collection took all of the classic retro Jordans and doused them in a crisp, white colorway. All-white everything.Though some models were released, others like this Air Jordan 13 "Silver Anniversary" edition were strictly samples.

Ranking Jay Z albums can be like doing any other Jay-related list: it's impossible to get it right. The God MC himself ranked his albums last year via Life + Times and caused an uproar from just about everyone, including die hard fans, casual listeners and committed Internet trolls, who bombarded the comment section with commentary like, "Nah! Vol.
Weather or not you like Big Sean's music, you have to admit he has an eye for style.
