Video: Dwyane Wade OWNS Kendrick Perkins

Being an OKC fan, (since they were in Seattle) it was hard for me not to scream like 13 year old girl school that just got Justin Bieber’s autograph. This dunk was filled with malice!

Dessa: Into The Spin Tour

Fans of Dessa this is for you. Yes, I am a fan as well.

At home in Minneapolis, Dessa assembled a cast of live players to perform with her. On The Into The Spin tour, she’ll take her ensemble on the road for the first time, transforming her live set into a wry, intimate cabaret with the rapper at center stage.

Sims & Lazerbeak will join Dessa on the road. Doomtree released Sims’ Bad Time Zoo (produced entirely by Lazebeak) in February. It’s currently at the top of the CMJ hip hop charts and earning accolades all over the place.

Video: Buckshot x Pound Mag | The Brooklyn Boss

Its always a revelation to see one of greats (in my generation) still get shine thrown their way. Buckshot has successfully managed to stay relevant in hip-hop after the Group Home era, which was one of the great times in hip-hop growing up. Who Got Da Props! Props to the homie Drakes.

Having been in the game for close to two decades, the Brownsville Brooklyn native sat down with Pound to discuss his new book: The Common Knowledgy of the Entertainment Industry, the one person that influenced his career, a possible Bootcamp Clik reunion album, his time with the legendary Guru, and what he thinks is bullsh*t about the music business.

Grant Hill’s Response to Jalen Rose

Grant Hill didn’t take to kindly to Jalen Rose’s thoughts as a 17 year old kid in regards to being an “Uncle Tom.” It was only a matter of time.

“The Fab Five,” an ESPN film about the Michigan basketball careers of Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Chris Webber, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson from 1991 to 1993, was broadcast for the first time Sunday night. In the show, Rose, the show’s executive producer, stated that Duke recruited only black players he considered to be “Uncle Toms.” Grant Hill, a player on the Duke team that beat Michigan in the 1992 Final Four, reflected on Rose’s comments.

Adidas is onto something here. When you get Katy Perry, Derrick Rose, David Beckham, and Lionel Messi in one commercial, its something BIG.

Nathaniel Dwayne Hale (August 19, 1969-March 15, 2011)

Sad news, the hip-hop game lost on of their best when it came to the hooks and just a dope vocalist. Nate Dogg died last night from an apparent stroke. He was only 41. Wish his family the best.
