Although the show stopped airing in 2007, it recently returned to the news when two of the seasons' participants did a Reddit AMA. Following that up, Huffington Post investigated the authenticity of the...

    Critics are always fighting conflicting urges. On the one hand, there's the need to be objective and evaluate each work on its own merits. On the other, there's the desire to fit each new release from an artist into an over-arcing career narrative. The trick is to find a balance between the two. This is especially hard to do with Big Sean, largely because his story so far has been one of success...

    Recently, we felt our childhood selves get pimp slapped back to reality with the forthcoming allegations that MTV's "Pimp My Ride" is guilty of deceiving both its viewers and contestants. The monitors on the back of each headrest rarely worked, high-tech contraptions were added just for TV, and contestant reactions were exaggerated.

    Kendrick Lamar has been kind of stingy with sharing new music this year, leaking tracks off his untitled album sparingly. The two official singles he has shared, "i" and "The Blacker the Berry," are enough to get most of us hype for what's to come, and fiend for more (so the plan is working). It's safe to say that if Kendrick decided to give us an album preview, we'd...

    Big Sean's third commercial album, Dark Sky Paradise, is in stores and online today. It's safe to say the G.O.O.D. Music rapper's past album releases didn't exactly live up to the hype, however the hype for DSP seems to be working for Sean, not against him.

    Injuries are an inevitable part of pro sports, but they’ve become an increasingly glaring issue for the NBA in past years. The athletic strain placed on players who have to spend so much time on the court, playing up to 40 minutes a game on both sides of the ball over 82 games, has forced the discussion of a shortened season. 2014-15 has been no exception, with players falling left, right and...
