Coming Attractions: Reebok Question Mid & Kamikaze II ‘Easter Pack’

Words By Retro Boogie Pastels on sneakers, again. Reebok’s catering to the ladies in this year’s Question Mid & Kamikaze II ‘Easter Pack.’ For anyone wondering why the Questions look mad feminine, they only come in kids’ sizes. Perfect for the bae, or for the side piece who asks why you don’t buy her Reeboks no more.

NBA Fast Break: Warriors Win A Battle, But Nuggets Win The War

Only two games happened last night but both held a direct impact on the West’s playoff picture. Color me surprised Golden State couldn’t clinch at home. Even with a 20-point lead in the first half and that marvelous Iggy crossover move...Show More Summary

Pharrell and Beyoncé Rule The 2014 Billboard Awards [Rolling Out] Stephen Colbert’s Top 10 Music Moments [Billboard] Wisconsin First State To Pass Anti-”Revenge Porn” Law [Gawker] Why The “Bad Boys” ’30 For 30? Is Required Viewing [TSFJ] Ludacris...Show More Summary

Fatality! Andre Iguodala Puts Killer Crossover On Quincy Miller

Poor Quincy Miller. With just six days left in his season, the Nuggets forward had just four games left to make sure he doesn’t end up on Sportscenter or become a trending topic for all the wrong reasons. Enter Andre Iguodala. After that cross I half expected Iggy to channel his inner Hot Sauce and just throw the ball into the crowd and end the game early.

Stat Quo – “Outkast” Video

It’d be heresy if an artist had flipped Outkast’s “Hold On, Be Strong” and not brought his or her A+ game, but Stat Quo totally gets it. The Atlanta emcee not only etched an emotionally compelling rags-to-riches tale on his particular...Show More Summary

Miguel Ft. Rick Ross – “How Many Drinks” (MMG Remix)

Despite having a number one album on his hands, Rick Ross takes no days off. The fat man hops on Miguel’s 2012 hit “How Many Drinks” to bless us all with smooth, thug love rhymes for our listening pleasure.

Colin Kaepernick Investigated for Sexual Assault

So much for a quiet offseason for the Sam Francisco 49ers. The Niner nation had their world rocked this morning after Colin Kaepernick’s name landed on the radar in relation to an odd sexual incident. Every time a situation involving allegations and he-said, she-said pop up, we’re hesitant to jump the gun and ending up with egg on our faces.

More Proof Meek Mill Can Rap Without Yelling

Initially, I had a really strong write-up on Mill Meek’s “How We Roll” because it was very dope. Then, the word came down that the song was a couple of years old and it was leaked by the unknown, featured artist, Betrayal. How ironic. The best part of “How We Roll” is how subdued but effective Meek’s vocals are.

Rich Homie Quan Talks Michigan State-”Type Of Way” Bond

By now, everyone should be familiar with the relationship Rich Homie Quan formed with the Michigan State football team last season. United by Quan’s hit “Some Type of Way,” the Spartans upended the traditional Big Ten football powers–like...Show More Summary

Jungle On ‘Illmatic’: “That Album Just Saved Everybody’s Life”

While speaking with Revolt regarding his brother’s debut, Jungle shared that the album proved to be a pivotal piece in the survival of those around Nas. “You didn’t know that it was going to go this far. Our friends was dying and we was still in the streets,” Jungle reflected. Show More Summary

Nicki Minaj’s Mom Recorded A Gospel Song Called “God’s Been Good”, And…She’s A Really Nice Lady

I was a preacher’s kid. Along with my mom, I grew up with my granddad, who was a strict minister. He had us in church every Sunday. From Sunday school, to devotional service, to morning service, afternoon service, and the occasional revival, I spent much of my youth warming the hard wooden pews of my local St.

Dear Artists: Why Are You Pressing All Of Those CDs?

I’ve been to SXSW four times. On average, I probably bring home about 30 or so CDs – which doesn’t take into account the CDs I left at bars or just lost track of. For the first couple of years at SXSW until my car’s CD player broke, I’d actually try to listen to parts of every CD on the way from Austin to New Orleans.

Stephen Colbert Picked To Replace David Letterman

Well, that happened fast. After back-and-forth rumors of Stephen Colbert replacing David Lettermen as host of The Late Show, we now have confirmation: CBS announces Stephen Colbert will succeed David Letterman as host of 'The Late Show' – press release — Breaking News (@BreakingNews) April 10, 2014 The news follows Letterman’s retirement announcement from just last week.

Sriracha Shutdown: California Town Shuts Down Hot Sauce Factory

If you’re at all like me, Sriracha hot sauce isn’t just a condiment to be used towards the betterment of pizza, eggs, and burritos. It’s a way of life. Sadly enough, though, the actual manufacturing of said hot sauce – particularly, Huy Fong Foods Inc. brand, which is the only kind to really be aware of – is kind of a burden on the community.

Let’s Appreciate Naya Rivera’s Singleness By Looking At A Ton Of Pictures Of Her

So apparently Big Sean and Naya Rivera have called off their wedding for basketball reasons or whatever. Who cares? All we know is Naya is single now. Slicks eyebrows Gentlemen (and ladies), start your engines. Naya is on the market and it’s time to let the thirst reign supreme. Show More Summary

IamSu! – “Show You” Ft. 50 Cent + ‘Sincerely Yours’ Tracklist

Auto-Tune is the name of the game in “Show You,” an Iamsu/50 Cent tag team that didn’t quite make the final Sincerely Yours tracklist. Which may or may not be a bad thing; yeah, 50 still brings a certain level of star power, but “Show You” really doesn’t seem like an organic fit on any album, working better as a loosie.

David D. Discusses Ultimate Warrior’s Legacy With Nancy Grace, Diamond Dallas Page

It’s not every day that you wake up with a chance to hop on the phone with a true-to-life idol. Or to hear yourself broadcast across national TV either. Our David D. did both yesterday as he was called on to speak with TV host Nancy Grace and Diamond Dallas Page about the untimely passing of Ultimate Warrior.

denitia and sene – “Divided” Video

There’s something cinematic about “Divided.” Sinister and haunting, popping this track in your ears while walking alone, at night, is probably a recipe for disaster, lest you wish to experience some detached, existential thoughts. In short, it’s not for anybody with a rigid sonic diet, but those of us who like to deviate a bit will end up coming back for more.

Thunder The Clippers To Keep Their Lead

The Thunder came into Wednesday night’s game knowing they had to do work. OKC held only a 1.5 game lead over Los Angeles for the two spot in the West and needed the road win to stay ahead. With their starting five in place for the first time in a long time, the Thunder managed to eek out a 107-101 win in a match-up that could likely repeat itself in the playoffs.
