    It’s almost that time of year again, where you get to stuff your face with delicious food and hang out with your close friends and family. Like us normal folk, rappers celebrate Thanksgiving too. While most of the year we see rappers stunting on us and bragging about their material possessions, around Thanksgiving we often see the kinder side of hip-hop artists, as many of them will put...

  • LL Cool J On Kobe Trash Talking Him & Anthony Mason Protecting Him
    4,211 Views
    Active in the industry for nearly 30 years, LL Cool James, has been around the entertainment industry long enough that he has some interesting tales.  In a recent sit down with SLAM, the New York native talks about his ties to the NBA community.  Apparently, he was close with Patrick Ewing, Charles Oakley and Anthony Mason - members of the tough-as-nails Knicks teams of the early 90s.   LL...
  • Wale Tells Us How To Reject Women Like Mutombo
    3,803 Views
    Dikembe Mutombo has been a mainstay reference for rappers since the 90s.  Usually rappers are talking about how big they are, on the block, or how their money is "long like Mutombo."   The NBA legend has seen a post-playing career resurgence of late as his trademark blocking prowess followed by his signature finger waving were used in a viral GEIKO commercial.  Rick Ross dropped off a "No...

    The inspiration rappers draw from mob films can't be denied. Flicks such as The Godfather, King Of New York, Casino, Goodfellas and Scarface have helped shape the persona of many of your favorite emcees. Artists tend identify with characters that rise above all odds and prosper, in a criminal field or otherwise. Tony Montana, Frank White, Vito Corleone, Sam Rothstein  - the...

    This segment of Charts Don't Lie is relatively subdued, as we have no big new entries to speak of just yet. While Childish Gambino's new album, Because The Internet, dropped last week, it has yet to start charting although it is expected to sell a pretty respectable amount, especially considering it's double the amount of his last release, Camp. Gambino is projected to move 80-90k  while Camp...
  • Top Beefs Of 2013

    Hip-hop and beef are synonymous with one another. The nature of the game is competitive, and so stars are always getting into tussles with one another, diss tracks are released (if you're Papoose, it often appears for no reason whatsoever), and with help from social networks like Twitter, we often have feuds occurring over the insignificant issues. 2013 was no different from past years, and some...

    2013. What a year. There was a bit of the old, with veterans making major moves in front of and behind the mic, as well as keeping their relationship with law enforcement afloat. A bit of the new, with a host of MC’s coming to kicking off their rookie year as well as some leaving us all too soon. A bit of the unexpected, with former child stars bringing a freaky dance to the mainstream and...

    With Christmas arriving tomorrow, we decided it was only appropriate to make our recent interview with Kid Ink Christmas-themed.

Ink tells us all about his best and worst Xmas gifts, as well as the...
  • Air Jordan 6 Toro Release Info
    1,827 Views
    The "Toro" Air Jordan 6 looks like it's actually going to happen. 2014 marks the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 6, so its reasonable to believe these early images will actually come to fruition.  The "Toro" 6 differs from other toro J's in that it goes with a leather upper rather than a suede construction. The completely red 6 features black laces, midsole, and an...
  • Nike Flightposite Carbon Fiber Release Info

    The all black, carbon fiber Nike Air Flightposite looks to be making a return in 2014. The sleek, all black look is a nice change of pace from the crazy and vibrant colorways we've previously seen getting retro'd. The iconic zipper shroud is held down by carbon fiber overlays which really make the black upper stand out. White swooshes complete the look on what could be the...
