Everything is purple.
We're in midst of a major shift in hip-hop right now, where rappers are taking matters into their own hands. Major labels like Interscope, Def Jam, and Atlantic Records seem to be having less control over their artists. The tide is changing, and the result is a mainly positive one. Fans are receiving music how they want, when they want, from their favorite artists without the major-label hassle.
Michael Jordan turned 50 years old this year, but showed he still has spry legs and can throw down. Around this time a litany of asinine rumors started popping up all over the internet about MJ's possible return to the game.

Each year ballers straight out of college, and from overseas hope to hear their name called on NBA Draft night. But being selected is only the first step to making a name for yourself in the league.

How the hell did we make it through fifty percent of 2015 already? June has seemingly crept up out of nowhere, marking the halfway checkpoint of a year that, so far, has been ripe with exceptional releases from some of hip-hop’s brightest emcees.
Lil Wayne didn't get the nickname "Mixtape Weezy" for nothing. Over the course of hip-hop history, very few artists have used the art of the mixtape to their advantage as well as Weezy F.

10. Lil Wayne - Pour Up This Weezy leak continues to amass more hype, even though we can't find it anywhere on the web -- back into Birdman's vault, I suppose.

Weezy would be wise to have "Pour Up" as his next single, though that's easier said than done.
As I'm sure you're fully aware of by now, LeBron James is the cover athlete for the wildly popular NBA 2K14. In case his son had somehow not noticed, LeBron made it pretty obvious to him on his 9th birthday. Sunday was LeBron James Jr's birthday, and to commemorate it, King James had an Xbox shaped cake made, and atop the cake version of the gaming system was a cake version of NBA 2K14.
Lots of talk lately about comparing great players from different eras and who would win. Michael Jordan let it be known that he'd beat anyone from any era, and some moron in a bar even pulled a knife while debating who was better between LeBron James and Jordan.
After losing LeBron James to South Beach, the fans in Cleveland are understandably worried about losing their new franchise player, Kyrie Irving, to free agency.

The Miami Heat started their season of right by receiving their championship rings, defeating an Eastern conference rival on a nationally televised game, and topping it all off with a Chris Bosh videobomb.
