As if the promise of an NFL career isn’t enough, adidas has added a pretty hefty carrot to the end of the proverbial stick. The athletic apparel brand is offering a cool $1 million to anyone who can break the current 40-yard-dash record. There’s a catch, of course – the record has to be broken in adidas cleats.
“Bad Boys II” is undoubtedly a classic action film. Michael Bay directed the movie in all his explosive glory, with stars Will Smith and Marin Lawrence providing excellent chemistry that carried the plot through more than a few holes. However, despite rumors and fans clamoring for more, the 2003 action film has never been slated for a sequel.
Kanye West's Twitter dominance continued last night when he announced that he was changing the title of his album -- AGAIN. First So Help Me God, then SWISH, then WAVES, and now a mysterious acronym: TLOP.

Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers faced off against the Indiana Pacers last night and lost, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has watched the Lakers this year.

Freddie Gibbs dropped off a new record this afternoon, "Money, Cash, Hoes" (so money x2, basically) produced by Beat Bully. That's not all the goodies Gibbs has for his fans today, he's announced a bunch of new tour dates for a "Shadow of a Doubt" tour that kicks off in March.
With both the (recently re-named) TLOP and Yeezy Season 3 dropping this week, Kanye West has a lot on his plate, but it hasn't stopped him from thinking about what's coming next. Among his many tweets over the last day was an a hint about his next fashion line, Yeezy Season 4, which was a major surprise.

Kanye West has never been shy about his love for iconic fashion designer Ralph Lauren. He has referred to Ralph Lauren as “the god” in past interviews, and his love for Ralph goes all the way back to his College Dropout days when he was rocking Ralph Lauren and Polo rugby shirts.
DMX reportedly suffered an overdose last night that caused him to temporarily lose his pulse and stop breathing.
The Crying Jordan meme is having a moment right now. Stemming from Michael Jordan’s tearful (yet ungrateful) Hall of Fame acceptance speech in 2009, his tearful face has been used to illustrate painful moments since the first meme popped up in 2012. However, this year is when it finally picked up steam after being featured on numerous mainstream publications.
True to form, DJ Khaled kicked off his new "We the Best Radio" show on Apple Music with a bang, premiering Future's new album EVOL. Khaled took to his trusty Snapchat to announce the show's second guest: Nas.
The power of Beyoncé can be quantified. Red Lobster has seen its sales spike 33% since getting Beyoncé name-dropped the seafood chain restaurant in her "Formation" video, reports CNN Money.
Pharrell Williams has always been a fashion icon, among his many other talents. He recently bought back full control of Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, clothing and fashion labels he popularized in the mid 2000’s. His next move is a much bigger one, as Pharrell has been named co-owner of the Dutch denim brand G-Star RAW.
Flavor Flav has pleaded no contest to a DUI charge he received in Las Vegas last May. According to Billboard, the rapper admitted to having marijuana residue in his system when cops pulled him over and arrested him last May.
Ciara and Future have had a rocky relationship since they called off their engagement two years ago. Both have been with new partners since then, but they haven't hesitated to tear each other down when the opportunity presents itself.
We’re only a couple days away from the release of Kanye West’s highly anticipated new album, and yet we still don’t know what to call it. After three name changes and a poll from his wife Kim Kardashian, it appears Ye has finally picked a title for the Yeezus follow up.
While the world is more connected than its ever been, regional successes and sounds are still as prevalent as ever in rap. Kevin Gates is selling upwards of 100k first week through his loyal support in the South, while Atlanta, the Bay Area, Chicago and the like have maintained distinct sounds within their respective scenes.
Top Dawg Entertainment’s stable of emcees is one of the best in the game. However, it can be tough to keep everyone happy with so many mouths to feed, so to speak. Ab-Soul is the only artist of the bunch who hasn’t released a critically-acclaimed and widely promoted album.
Kendrick Lamar is up for a whopping Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year. The Compton rapper sat down with the Grammys along with Thundercat, Terrace Martin, Rapsody, Sounwave, and other architects of To Pimp a Butterfly to given an oral history of how the album came together. Here are few highlights from the interview:
Kanye West is a busy man, and it appears his attention is currently focused on his Yeezy Season 3 clothing collection. Hopefully that means his album is finished, but without a name anything seems possible. Yeezy has been tweeting pictures of his work fitting the new Yeezy Season 3 clothes, and part of that included a picture of a brand new Yeezy Boost 350.
In a hip hop climate that's almost unhealthily focused on trending topics and followers, no one has committed to and excelled in catering to short attention spans like Future and Young Thug.
Future proved that he could drop an album like a mixtape and still sell upwards of 100,000 copies first week with DS2, and he's now continued that trend with EVOL. The rapper's latest project, released shortly after his free Purple Reign mixtape is projected to sell 110-115,00 copies, (145-150k with streams).
Drake is pretty much bigger than ever right now, and the fact that his latest record, "Summer Sixteen," which is hardly a bid for pop success like "Hotline Bling", has given him his biggest sales week as a solo artist, is evidence of such. According to Billboard, the single has netted a whopping 215,000 downloads this week. Of course, debuting the song on OVO sound, taking some sublimina
With Super Bowl 50 pitted as a matchup between dabbin', swaggin' Cam Newton and Papa John's franchise-havin' Peyton Manning, it was no surprise that the majority of the hip hop community threw its weight behind the Carolina Panthers. It is also no surprise to see that some rappers put huge stacks on the game, confident that the 17-1 Panthers could deliver one more W.
The rap and fashion worlds seem to intersecting more than ever these days, and that trend continues with the announcement of Alexander Wang's upcoming campaign. Creating an Instagram for the "WANGSQUAD," the brand announced a collection of 21 figures who would be contributing to the Wang image.
Constant new music from the game's biggest stars has become the norm. And while it's almost too much to digest, we're not complaining. This week's Top Tracks is dominated by Future, Drake, and Rihanna, and it's likely those names aren't going anywhere -- Future, especially, who's already dropped two projects this year, adding to the four he put out in 2015. And don't let me forget about Meek.
We always knew Beyonce doesn’t take anything less than the best from everyone she works with, and that includes her collaborator and Super Bowl 50 co-performer Chris Martin of Coldplay.
Kanye West is using his yeezy.supply website to count down (or up) to the Yeezy Season 3 stream, which doubles as the release date for his next, apparently unnamed record. The timer will expire at 4PM EST on February 11.
