Charles Barkley may not be on Twitter, but if you ask him for his opinion he will give it to you unfiltered. As part of a celebrity golf tournament, Charles was on CNBC’s “Closing Bell,” where he gave his opinion on various things including people people leeching off athletes, why he stays off Twitter, and even touched on the George Zimmerman not guilty trial verdict. Barkley says th

Drake loves to play tastemaker, especially when he's broadcasting the up and coming sounds of his hometown for all of the hip hop world to hear. Social media and now OVO Sound radio are his primary platforms for spotlighting promising Toronto artists.
Most of Atlanta's most successful musicians were born in the city and haven't left since. The transplants that have been able to make it are mostly from the South, as Atlanta is really the only place in the region that provides any opportunity for a career in music. That's where C4 headed after he had seen DJ Spinz, also from the town of Augusta, make a name for himself in the Georgia capital.
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 apprecia
The NBA continues to roll out new look alternative jerseys, and now we get a look at the sleeved jerseys that will be worn on the Christmas Day games. December 25th is when the NBA launches their heavy national calendar as the NFL begins to wind down and more of the casual fans turn their attention to the NBA, so Christmas Day games are a big event for the league.
The Weeknd rose up as a largely anonymous kid from Toronto who released three epic mixtapes in 2011. March, August and December each held a release date for this dude who was mixing sounds of electronica, hip-hop, dubstep, R&B, downtempo and soul in a way that had never been done before.Well, it worked.
Better start saving now. May 25th marks a massive restock for Jordan Brand. White Cement IVs, 88'Retro IIIs, Thunder IVs, and everybody's favorite Bred XIs will all be restocking at Eastbay, Footlocker, Finishline and Footaction locations. Click through to get the details.
The art of rapping started off in the form of spoken word and poetry, but you don't hear a lot of "poetry" in modern-day popular rap. This could be for a multitude of reasons. For starters, the club doesn't want to put you to sleep. And Neither does the radio. For whatever reason, songs that make you think don't seem to have wheels in 2015. But that's okay though, 'cause we got you.
Even as little as nine months ago, no one would have really expected Birdman and Lil Wayne to beef.
"Don't do it for the Vine!" Words uttered by a dude who tried to emulate Kobe Bryant's viral video where he jumped over an Aston Martin that was driving towards him. Inspired by Mamba's sneaker placement video from 2009 where he jumped over the high-end vehicle, a man attempted the same thing, and failed...miserably.
Eminem will forever go down as one of the greatest rap artists of all time, and his career has yet to be concluded. While his music is celebrated and praised, people often forget about his long time work with Nike, creating some of the most unique and sought after shoes of all time.
Trinidad James is by no means reserved when it comes to fashion. You might see him in an all over gold print shirt, or wearing HBA with motocross pants (we don't get it either). However last night James broke out a fresh new pair of Shadow Jordan 1s, and broke a sneaker commandment. Pictured above, you can see the extra grey lace bag still attached to the shoe.
It's been a minute, as we continue to immerse ourselves into the digital cover initiative, but we're back today with another stand-out cover, this time featuring iLoveMakonnen. The Atlanta artist, who may or may not be still signed to OVO (it's really hard to tell), recently released Drink More Water 6.
What's beef? Well, whatever it is, it sure has changed over the years. Beef is what ultimately lead to the murders of two contenders for 'best rapper ever.' In 2015, beef consists mostly of Twitter smack-talk and occasionally a diss track or two.
This week's chart is all about Prince. The icon had a profound impact on hip hop music in many ways, influencing your favorite rapper without a doubt. His impact touched pretty much everyone who makes music, and those who enjoy music were going back into his catalogue quite a bit too.
Lean is by no means a new craze in hip-hop. Since the early days of DJ Screw, promethazine mixed with codeine and Sprite has been the recipe for many southern classics. Though purple drank originated in Houston, it has slurred its way into Atlanta, New Orleans, and just about every other hip-hop metropolis in the country.
2015 sometimes felt like one long coronation of Metro Boomin as hip hop's new production king. In the midst of all the (well-deserved!) Metro hullabaloo, DJ Dahi was quietly putting together a career year for himself.
The Air Jordan 3 "Katrina" will reportedly hit retailers on March 8th, 2014. This colorway was originally auctioned off on EBay to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
King Louie speaks the truth: “They say you can make it anywhere, if you make it in Chicago.” The city notoriously known as Chiraq has been long overshadowed by gang violence, and those fortunate enough to make it out the trap are considered heroes. You know the statistics; Chicago has more murders than the war in Iraq. To cope with the violence, the city’s youth created drill music.
Playing basketball on consoles is becoming immensely life-like, as seen with the latest NBA 2K14. A gamer posted a video on Youtube of him finding out the hard way just how realistic the games have become when he picked up a technical for swearing at Kinect. "WHAAAAT! TECHNICAL CALLED FOR BAD LANGUAGE? FUCK YOU KINECT."
Slow and steady wins the race, or so they say. In an era of immediate consumption and instant gratification, we want something the second it becomes available, if not before. We wait in line overnight so we can be the first in our group of friends to have the newest iPhone, Call of Duty, or retro Jawwdins.
This week's biggest Instagram event would have to be the reunion of YG and DJ Mustard. Before taking the stage together at Coachella, the two made an official announcement that they were back at it, writing, "For a whole year me and this nigga @djmustard ain't been BOOL "at all" But niggaz FINALLY sat it down and holla'D like some successful azz day 1's pose 2 & uhhhhhhh now....
It just takes one. Tate Kobang was completely unknown outside the city limits of Baltimore last April when he released his remix of "Bank Rolls", a local hit by Tim Trees from 2000, to promote his latest mixtape. The remix caught fire in the city. It was a hit! Within a matter of weeks, Kobang had signed a deal with 300 Ent.
Trinidad James was one of many celeberties seen rocking the Air Jordan 3 "Legends of the Summer" and the more and more we see of it we wonder, will we ever see a release date? Trinidad James rocked them with all red jogger pants and he also left the hang tag on, typical Trinidad James.
The NBA has grown exponentially in the past 25 years on multiple levels. On a macro level, by expanding their brand to a global audience and adding franchises. On a micro level, by implementing replays and allowing for zone defenses.
Mixtape Corner is a place where we take a closer look at some of the mixtape releases that weren't necessarily big enough to garner a review, but still deserve your attention.Curren$y & The Alchemist- The Carrollton Heist
