The MIAMI HEAT win two NBA World Championship Titles in a row!! Congratulations!! The entire team pulled together to clutch this series, and we couldn’t be more proud. Once again, Lebron James was named the 2013 NBA Finals MVP! He was nothing short of a beast out on that court. Dr. Dre, Drake, Bill Russel, Spike Lee, and more left Lebron messages on an old-fashioned answering machine, complete with the “beep” and all. LOL! And you can too by calling (305) 767-2226.
“Cover phenom LeBron James talks to “Video Game James” in your first look at NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 4, from Sony’s E3 Press Conference!” The graphics are so good, you’ll confuse the the animated Lebron for the real one.
“The album is Platnium and its not even out. Samsung bought 1 million copies of his Jay Z’s new album and is giving it away to new users. Genius” – “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” will be releases July 4th, and plans to give them to Samsung Galaxy smartphone users for free will happen 72 hours ahead of the release.
If you’re a fan of the first “300″ movie, then news of the sequel, “300: Rise of an Empire”, should put a smile on your face. The new action-thriller focuses on the battle of Salamis (Persian fleet vs Greek fleet) near Athens in the sea. The Greek general, Themistocles, battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes. Xerxes had already defeated the first “300″ men.
I’m not sure how the film will play out, because historically, Themistocles, was ultimately exiled from Greece, many years after the war. Of course, since the focus of the movie is on the battle against the Persian navy, there will be lots of blood, gore, and powerful special effects…all the things that makes this franchise exciting. So regardless of the specific plot, the film will be unforgettable.
ICE CUBE, one of the realest to ever do it. We salute all of your contributions to Hip Hop and thank you for setting the bar high in terms of lyricism, story telling, content & subject matter, and of course, that hardcore West Coast sound. In honor of the rap legend, actor, and entrepreneur, I posted a video synonymous with Ice Cube’s legacy – “Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It”. This is the uncensored version.
LOL! Nope, they didn’t tattoo the baby, but Baby Birdman’s parents haD a shirt custom-made with the graphics of Chris Anderson’s tattoos. Talk about die-hard Miami Heat fans!! This sentiment shows how important our NBA team is to the city of Miami AND South Florida as a whole. Baby Birdman met Grown-Up Birdman as the Miami Heat prepared for Game 2 if the Championship Finals. Good luck to the Heat as they try to hold on as the reigning champions.
The sequel to one of favorite movies, the action-packed, KICK ASS 2, will hit U.S. theaters this summer on August 16th.
“Plot Summary: Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010′s irreverent global hit: “Kick-Ass 2.” After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.”
Not long ago, I did a survey within all of my social networking sites asking everyone, “What is the #1 Hip Hop song of ALL TIME.” Without a doubt, PETE ROCK’s and C. L. SMOOTH’s “T.R.O.Y (They Reminisce Over You)”, won by a landslide…up by tens of thousands of votes. This is how monumental this group’s sound was/is to the culture, and what they represent.
In the latest episode of the Complex TV‘s “Magnum Opus” series, Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth recalls the historical moment on how this song was created, what was going on inside of their genius minds, and their general influences in regards to all the music they created. Representing ‘Mount Vernon, NY’, Pete Rock & C. L. Smooth give us the full breakdown of their classic “Mecca and the Soul Brother” album. Plus, they speak on Heavy D & The Boyz, and the death of their close friend Troy Dixon.
Here is another piece to the ‘Who killed TUPAC’ puzzle. As members of the Hip Hop community, it’s up to us to get down to the bottom of this murder. We can’t accept “cold cases” in the death of our influential young poets because that would solidify the status quo, that killing one of ‘us’ is no big deal. And 2Pac’s former bodyguard, “Big Frank”, the one who was suppose to be guarding Pac the night of his death, may have taken some secrets to his grave.
“Machete Kills” will be this summer’s most explosive film, and an instant cult classic. Robert Rodriguez directs a powerhouse of actors including Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Alexa Vega, Michelle Rodriguez, Lady Gaga, Danny Trejo, Charlie Sheen, Sofia Vergara, and Cuba Gooding Jr. The plot?
Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale agent Machete, who is recruited by the President of the United States for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet. “Machete Kills” hits theaters on July 12, 2013.
One of the best MC’s of our generation and of Hip Hop entirely, graced us with his presence during the Brooklyn SummerStage 2013. Just in case you missed it, Rap legend, RAKIM, performed our favorites; ‘Eric B. is President’, ‘Microphone Fiend’, and of course, ‘Paid in Full’ live at CityParks. Check out the video (starting at the 1:22 mark). Fake MC’s take notes.
“Hip hop superstar 50 Cent sits down with Nick Huff Barili as part of SXSW’s interview series to discuss his meteoric rise to fame from humble beginnings in Queens, to his incredibly successful musical career and hip hop empire, as well as his current work with SMS Headphones and the upcoming release of his album ‘Street King Immortal’.”
Only 1 show left before the season finale of GAME OF THRONES biyatches!! And the battle for the Iron Throne is on! Three Kings fight to rule Westeros but there is one QUEEN aka the “Khaleesi”, with the power to destroy them all… DAENERYS TARGAYENS. She is the iconic figure we all know as the ‘Mother of Dragons’, and the last surviving member of Valyrian race – the most powerful group of people in the history and backstory of HBO’s, ‘The Game Of Thrones’.
The Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryens, is the most beloved character on this wildly popular show, because she is a supreme queen, hardcore enough to rule an army of ruthless and fearless men. Included in this blog post is a video of the last episode where Khaleesi solidifies the strength of her army with a powerful alliance. Viewer Discretion Advised.
Ludacris’ albums and mixtapes are always that fire with high energy and deep Southern bass. This new mixtape from the DTP frontman and hip hop OG, is entitled “IDGAF” (a pre-lude to his up & coming album, LUDAVERSAL), which includes 12 records with features from Young Jeexy, Pusha T, Meek Mill, Chris Brown, Mac Miller & more. 14 years in the game and Luda back at it again! This sh*t’s banging!
Last night, Kanye West came back to his political roots and brilliantly reminded the world why he is quite possibly the reigning ‘King of Rap’. He unveiled his first new release & video for, “New Slaves” via projections of his face on buildings and skyscrapers across the world. This video includes the projection at the corner of Bedford and N. 7th in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A total of sixty-six projections are involved in the launch.
