Friday, October 29, 2010 & Nicki Minaj - "Check It Out" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

I don't know what it is but chicks love Nicki Minaj and they are starting to love this song too.  I've been hearing it all over the place lately.  I'm sure most of them don't know that it's a super blatant bootleg of The Buggles "Video Killed The Radio Star" but it's a decent update I guess.  I could see this getting really annoying after a few listens though. 

It's defintiely good for the clubs and radio.  The video is kind of cool and Nicki looks hot as shit so I guess it's worth posting.

On a random note, Nicki keeps getting better looking every time I see her.  I don't know how she's doing it but I'm not really complaining.  I guess a little extra money for clothes, wigs and makeup doesn't hurt the cause...

Ryan Leslie - "Never Gonna Break Up" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Here's some hot new R&B from Ryan Leslie with the single "Never Gonna Break Up" from his Transition album. Is it just me or is no one putting out good R&B like this anymore?  I know technically there are R&B artists making moves out there but everything seems to be based on poppy uptempo electronic joints instead of something that's just smooth and more laid back like this.

I'm all for the fast beats for the clubs and radio but every once in awhile, I want something that makes me chill or mellow out a bit.  This song has one of those vibes and I'm definitely feeling it.  If you haven't checked out Ryan Leslie's album Transition, give it a listen.  It's solid.

Jordan CMFT Max Air 12 - Various Colorways (BLAZING HOT)

Now this is how you do it!  I've never been a fan of the Air Jordan and Air Force 1 Fusions that have been floating around for the past few years but I do appreciate some of the other mashups like the Spizike and 6 Rings.  A lot of Jordan purists cringe at the thought of taking classics and trying to update them or force them in a collaboration with another shoe but it can work if done right.  The new Jordan CMFT Max Air 12 is a perfect example of what is possible if enough thought is put into it. 

The new CMFT (Comfort) line brings a more casual style to the Jordan lineup which will be great for people like me who want to rock some Jordans but can't always pull it off in certain environments like work.  I definitely feel more comfortable rockin' a running style shoe so if I can still bring some Jordan heat with that type of look, I'm all for it.
I previewed the Jordan CMFT Max Air 11 a few weeks ago and although those are very hot in their own right, I think I like the CMFT Max Air 12's the best so far.  Hopefully they start releasing the CMFT as a general release because I would love to get a few pairs of each style and color.  All of these could easily make their way up to the top of my everyday rotation.  DOPE!!!

Atomic Tom Performs "Take Me Out" Live on NYC Subway with iPhone Apps (COOL)

This obviously isn't my usual style of music although I can appreciate some decent rock once in awhile.  What's really cool about this video though is the fact that the members of Atomic Tom are performing live on an NYC subway train using only their iPhones with corresponding Apps and a few amps. 

The sound is pretty incredible considering what they are using and they're timing is on point even though they are using a tiny little touch screen.  Very impressive.  I have to admit, the song is kind of catchy too.  I can get down with that.  Good shit... - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Thursday Throwbacks: Rappin 4-Tay - "I'll Be Around" & "Playaz Club"

Damn dude!  I just got chills listening to "I'll Be Around".  I haven't heard that joint in years!  This was the shit back in '94 and it still bumps today.  What's really dope about it is the fact that the lyrics also hold up because it's not about the same old garbage.  It actually has a positive message and with the sample of The Spinners classic of the same name, you can't go wrong.  If you don't feel good after hearing either of these songs, you've got problems. 

Bonus Track:  
"Playaz Club" was actually the song that put me on to Rappin-4-Tay and his dope laid back style.  Surprisingly, it reached #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 while "I'll Be Around" only reached #39.  I was instantly hooked on this song when I saw it on Yo! MTV Raps after school one day.  DOPE! - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Oklahahoma State's Basketball Locker Room is Pimped Out (BALLIN')

DAMN!  Now that is straight ballin' right there!  If you were an OSU basketball recruit and were on the fence about going there, you could certainly be convinced to change your mind fairly quickly after checking out this insane locker room.  WOW! 

If I was one of those players, I'm pretty sure I would try and make that my dorm room because that placed is hooked the f*** up!  I would never leave.  It's got a dope kitchen, multiple entertainment options including a movie area, speakers and MP3 access in every room, a lounge, a customized pool table and more.  And this is just for the basketball team.  Place is sick!

Abington High School Announcers Lose Their Mind Over Bad Call (HYSTERICAL)

This is taking it extremely local but I heard this on 98.5 the yesterday and was laughing my ass off.  It might be a little funnier with the radio guys giving the commentary but give it a shot.  The Abington announcers lose their f'n minds after a terrible call on a lateral.  One dude literally throws his headphones to the ground and opens the window to flip out on the refs while the other guy simply says  "BOO!!! Nuts and bolts, we got screwed!".  Hysterical! 

In a similar situation, Florida Atlantic announcer Dave Lamont loses his mind after FAU's QB gets hit in the head and loses his helmet on a slide.  An unbelievable rant follows:

"I don't really care if you people look at me in the press box.  I don't care.  That's a flag.  And I'll fight any one of you if you want it.  That's the mood I'm in at the moment." - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Jamie Foxx ft. Rick Ross - "Living Better Now" w/ Biggie Sample (HOT)

I wasn't totally sure how I felt about this new Jamie Foxx joint "Living Better Now" when I heard it for the first time but it's growing on me.  The beat feels like it's missing a little something but that Biggie sample of "Living Better Now" that they use for the hook has got me locked in.  I guess I'm just a sucker for anything form the Notorious one. 

I don't see this being a huge hit because it's not quite fast enough for the clubs and it's not quite radio friendly but I could see it getting some spins on certain urban stations.  Maybe it will be a slow burner since it isn't a song you could get sick of easily, at least in my opinion.  I'll defintiely be putting it in my R&B rotation.

I'm assuming this track will be on Jamie's new album Body which is set to release on December 14, 2010. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Celtics Beat Heat On Opening Night (GOOD START)

Well, my prediction of the Celtics winning by 6 points was pretty spot on.  The C's ended up winning by 8 with a final score of 88-80.  Although they finally pulled away at the end, the game ended up being much too close for comfort. 

The Celtics had the game in hand for most of the 1st half and 3rd quarter and held a 15 point lead for a good amount of time.  Unfortunately, Pierce hurt his back on the ridiculous non-charge by LeBron when he just completely ran over Pierce and from that point on, LeBron started going off and brought the Heat all the way back within 3 points.  Wade and Bosh were fairly useless all game, so LeBron took the team on his back and showed why he is still one of the best players in the league. 

It was kind of scary to see the Celtics fall apart so easily but I think a lot of that could be due to rust and the pressure of what was probably the biggest opening night game in NBA history (or close to it).  They finally got their act together when Pierce and Allen started hitting some big shots but it wasn't as pretty as it should have been.  Had Pierce not come back into the game, I have a funny feeling the Heat would have pulled off the win. 

Doc pulled off some sketchy substitutions as usual and had the starters in a little too long in the 3rd Quarter which allowed the Heat to come back.  Although Rondo had 17 assists, he only had 4 points, wasn't being aggressive going to the hoop and he had a ton of bad passes and turnovers.  That was probably one of the worst 17 assist games I've ever seen.  Rondo could have gone to the basket at will against Arroyo and Chalmers but it looked like he was holding back like something was wrong.  Maybe it was just first night jitters but he needs to take advantage of matchups like that and do a little more scoring.  He could have easily ended up with 15 points or more had he just taken a few dribbles to the basket.  Hopefully that will change as the season progresses. 

Overall, it was a good start to the season and it was nice to see all of the analysts backtracking and making excuses for the Heat.  I think everyone quickly realized that the Celtics are still the team to beat in the East.

Joe Budden - Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst Mixtape (DOPENESS)

It's always a good day when you have some new Joe Budden to blast through your speakers or headphones.  Dude is by far the most underrated and least appreciated rapper in the game right now.  Everything he puts out is unreal.  He's one of the best lyricists in the game, hands down.  Don't even question whether or not you should download this mixtape.  Just do it now.  It's better than 95% of the albums being put out there by garbage record labels these days and this was just a mixtape.

SNL Spoofs Jimmy McMillan the "Rent Is TOO Damn High" Guy (FUNNY)

This SNL spoof wasn't even that funny but I thought it was worth throwing up just to show how much Jimmy McMillan and his ideals are sweeping the nation.  McMillan of the self proclaimed "The Rent is Too Damn High Party" was on the Opie and Anthony Show the other day and he was funny as hell.  This dude needs to get elected!

New LeBron James Nike commercial "Rise" (INTERESTING)

I'm not sure how I feel about this new Nike LeBron commercial.  It seems like he's starting to realize that "The Decision" was a really dumb idea and that he realizes how he is now the villain in Cleveland and across the NBA by deciding to go to Cleveland. I can respect that in a weird way, as long as his words are genuine. Who knows if that is the case though.   In a weird way, he was almost apologizing and saying "F you" at the same time.  He might have gone about everything in the wrong way but at the same time, he doesn't feel bad about his decision and he's ready to move on and he wants all of the fans to do the same thing. 

I'm not sure how much of this was really his idea since I don't think he's capable of thinking that deeply but the fact he went along with it at least makes me think that he's at least starting to understand why everyone flipped out over his antics this summer and why he's now one of the most hated athletes on the planet outside of Miami. 

I can't wait to see him and the Heat get their asses kicked by the Celtics tonight to start the NBA season.  The Celtics are already showing signs of great chemistry and depth and I think the Heat are in for a rude awakening.  C's win by 6... - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Kanye West - "Runaway" Full Uncensored Film (COOL)

Kanye's new "Runaway" film is definitely on some other shit but I still think it's cool.  I respect his artistic creativity, as crazy as it may be to some people.  I mean, this thing is over 34 minutes long.  You can't just throw something like that together.  A lot of planning and hard work goes into that so you gotta at least respect it as a finished product.  Even if you're not feeling it, the full length film is still a nice preview of tracks from the new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.  

Dude is on another planet sometimes but at least he's doing something different and what he feels is interesting instead of following the trends like most rappers or listening to Hip Hop fans that never want their favorite artist's to change or mature in anyway.  There will always be people hatin' when you do something different but if you stay true to yourself and are confident in what you do then fuck what everyone else thinks.  Do you.

Puck Smashes Camera During Devils vs. Rangers Game (CRAZY)

Other than trying to avoid all the drunktards in awful 80's mullets and Cam Neely jersey's and generally fearing for my life, this video is another reason why I try and stay away from hockey games at all costs.  I'm all set with watching a sport in person where I have the potential to die because I took a puck to the dome. 

I guess you could say that baseball is just as dangerous but you always seem to have more time to react to a foul ball and everyone is expecting it so you rarely see a serious injury.  Pucks only go into the stands every once in awhile so you aren't exactly expecting a slapshot at 120 MPH to come zinging at your face like this shit.  Instant death, guaranteed.  I'm all set with that... - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Travis Barker ft. Feat. The Cool Kids - "Jump Down" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

This is some dope shit right here!  I didn't even know that Travis Barker was coming out with his own album but it's nice to see that he's going to be sticking with the Hip Hop vibe that he's been mastering over the past few years.  Just in case you don't know what I mean, you can see some of his best Hip Hop remixes here.

Barker's album “Give The Drummer Some” is scheduled to drop December 30, 2010. According to Barker, it will not be made up of one specific genre but it sounds like it will be Hip Hop heavy with guests including Ludacris, Eminem, Drake, T.I., Snoop Dogg, Yelawolf, The Cool Kids, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Beanie Sigel, Lupe Fiasco, Pharrell, Redman, Pete Rock, Clipse, Game, Paul Wall, Rick Ross, RZA, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Swizz Beatz, Bun B, Rihanna, Slaughterhouse, B.o.B, Kurupt and Lil Wayne.  It will also feature production from Barker, The Neptunes and DJ Khalil.

Best Touchdown Run of The Year Comes From a D3 Dude (IMPRESSIVE)

Wow. Now that's a freakin' TD run. That was like a combination of Michael Vick with a little Barry Sanders thrown in for good measure. Very nasty.  The hurdle right in to a spin move at the very end of the play is what really made this a classic.  Nice usage of the spin button, bro!

I don't want to give him too much credit since most Division 3 College football teams could get smoked by mediocre High School squads but in some parts of the country, D3 is pretty serious so I will give him the benefit of the doubt.  Either he is really good or the opposing team is just terrible.  They looked like they had him stopped a few times so I don't even think it was bad tackling.  He was just in the zone. Regardless, it was still the best TD run I've seen all season, at any level. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Thursday Throwbacks: Nas - "It Ain't Hard To Tell"

Damn.  This is just pure Hip Hop right here.  The Illmatic album is just a freakin' classic. "It Ain't Hard To Tell" is one of my favorite Rap songs of all time and it's the song that turned me on to Nas' music.  

As soon as I heard those horns and noticed the sample of Michael Jackson's "Human Nature" I was hooked.  It took me a little longer to pay attention to Nas' lyrics but once I caught up to his style and flow, I realized how nasty NaS really was.  They just don't make them like this anymore. 

In 1991, Nas recorded a demo tape featuring the original version of "It Ain't Hard to Tell" called "Nas Will Prevail". This version is about 90 seconds longer and has slightly different verses and lyrics.  The beat is similar but the horns are different and a little more annoying and simplistic when compared to the final version.  It's still cool to hear how he progressed with the song over time.  Dopeness!

Here's a look back at MJ's "Human Nature" so you can compare and contrast.  Another classic! - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Derrick Rose and Slim Chin: adiZero Rose Commercial (FUNNY)

The Adizero Rose kicks do look pretty legit though.  I'd defintiely ball in these all day.

2Pac - "If They Love Their Kidz" (NEW OLD SHIT)

I'm usually very disappointed with the "new" 2Pac material that eventually gets released but I have to admit, this shit is pretty dope.  I'm not going to deny that I buy any and all new Pac material but I don't exactly bump it over and over again like his classic material.  It's kind of like wanting to own all the Elvis or Beatles records even if you know their not that good and they were never meant to see the light of day.  If you are a fan, you want all their shit regardless.   It's just one of those things.

I have no idea if this is just a random song that someone found or if it's from another new album but I will take it for what it is for now which is a nice record from one of the greats in the Hip Hop game. 

In case any of you were sleeping on Bun B's album Trill O.G., 2Pac also made an appearance with a sick verse on the song "Right Now".  Shit's hot! - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

The Astronomical Kid - "Stop Looking at my Moms" (DECENT)

Damn.  This little shorty The Astronomical Kid is pissed, huh?  I guess this was bound to happen with the MILF infatuation that has heated up over the past few years.  It's kind of funny when you're walking down the street and some dude just pulls up on a chick and starts kicking game even if she's with her kids or even another guy.  You just have to laugh at their stupidity and complete lack of game.

Most women with any sense would ignore these clowns all day long.  You really think they are going to want to get with a guy who's constantly calling out to random chicks walking down the street?  There is no way this madness ever works but they keep doing it.  Dumb.  If I was The Astronomical Kid, I'd be heated too. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Pepperdine's Keion Bell Dunking Over 7 People (SICK HOPS)

I've never heard of this dude Keion Bell from Pepperdine but I'll definitely be watching for him this basketball season after watching this video from the Pepperdine Dunk Contest.  He has some serious hops and crazy creativity with his dunks.  Call me impressed.  

Most guys who can dunk like this are just dunkers and rarely play at the D1 level but it sounds like he has some skills on the court as well. Bell averaged 18.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game last season for Pepperdine. I'm sure he'll have plenty of playing time this year to drop some nasty dunks on the opposition so I'll be on the lookout.  

By the way, the dunk over 7 people was pretty cool but I'm not freaking out over it because of two things.  First off, he had some fairly short people lined up and some kids in the front which makes it easier.  It's still a hard dunk but would have been better if he only used his tall teammates.  Second, he defintiely pushed off the shoulder of the first guy he jumped over which is kind of weak.  It was still a nice dunk but I take points away for those two things. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

This video for "Tigerstyle" is kind of ghetto but at least we get to hear/see some new ish from Redman.  Actually, the simplistic video fits his grimey style nicely.  He probably made that shit with a $200 handheld or an HD Flip and was totally fine with it cause he just don't give a f*ck.

Craziest High School Football Finish Ever? Butler Beats P.R.P. (WTF JUST HAPPENED?)

So in theory, this is probably one of the craziest endings to a football game I've ever seen.  I don't want to give it too much credit though because I really don't think this should have been a legal play.  Here's why. 

First off, it looks like that one dude at about the 35 yard line was down when he fumbled/tossed the ball backwards.  I'm pretty sure I heard the game announcer say the game was over at that time which then prompted the Red team to start running on the field.  The refs didn't blow the whistle, so the play kept going but there was no like 60 people on the field. 

That probably should have stopped the play right there because there is no way to keep track of who's supposed to be on the field but the play continued.  The white team scores the touchdown and their bench starts running on the field  before the play ended as well which is another potential penalty.  Then about ten players started jumping up on the goal post which should have been a penalty as well. Of course they can't review anything because there is no replay in high school football. The whole thing was just a complete shitshow.  

This is right up there with the ending to the now infamous Cal vs. Stanford game from the 80's where the band came on the field.  Just complete madness all around. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Michael Jordan's Mercedes Benz SLR 722 For Sale on eBay (NASTY)

I heard "Black & Yellow" for the first time a few weeks ago on Sirius and now that I've heard it a few more times, it's quickly becoming one of my favorite songs.  On top of that, Wiz has jumped to the top of my favorite current rappers list.  Dude continues to put out top notch music with every release.  I haven't heard one bad song yet.  Wiz is just on another planet right now.  Literally and figuratively.  I'm not even sure he knows where he is right now because he smokes so much weed!!!

On a related note, this ATL Freestyle has been out forever but my brother just put me on to it the other day.  Wiz goes in with some serious rhymes while he gets his smoke on.  Very impressive considering he was high as a muhfucka!  I can't even say my name blazed yet alone come up with some shit like that.  Damn! - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Closer Look at the Air Jordan III White Cement 2011 Retro (DOPE)

As I've mentioned previously, the original Air Jordan III White Cement colorway is going to be retroed for 2011.  Big time sneakerhead Mayor was able to cop a pair before the release and gives us a closer look in this video. 

This retro of the AJ3 looks unreal.  A lot of the people in the comments are complaining about the quality of the leather but I'm not going to be a hater because I'm just happy they are being re-released in any capacity.  This is definitely one of my favorite Jordan's that I have never owned.  I have 3 different styles of the AJ3 currently but do not have the White Cement colorway in my collection so I will definitely be buying these as soon as they are available.  I believe it will be a general release but I could see these selling out fairly quickly.

Madden NFL 11: Greg Jennings Scores Touchdown with a Broken Leg (FUNNY ISH)

I don't know why but this video cracked me up.  It's kind of funny that Jennings was even allowed to play with a broken leg and was still able to score a touchdown but the dude who made the video and doing the commentary is funny as shit.

I can't really tell if that's his real voice and lisp but I assume it is because his XBox Live game was GUMBYBOUTDATLIF.  I have no idea what that means but the Gumby reference is dead on.  Funny shit.

Cassidy - "Drumma Bass" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

I'm not a huge Cassidy fan but I will admit that he makes some catchy ass singles.  I'll always bump "Hotel", "Get No Better", "I'm a Hustla and "My Drink and My 2 Step".  Those are all legit hits.  It's just that album filler that turns me off a bit.

His newest single "Drumma Bass" follows a similar formula to his past hit singles.  His lyrical game on this track is not the best but the beat itself is hot as shit.  That constant repetition of the "Drumma Bass" vocal sample is dope.  I could see a lot of rappers hopping on this instrumental for mixtapes and freestyles. 

Cassidy's new album C.A.S.H. (Cass A Straight Hustla) is due out November 16th.

Ciara - "Gimme Dat" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Here's some new ish from Ciara. I'm not quite sure how I feel about "Gimme Dat" yet but I think it's a decent enough song.  I feel like it's missing just a little something but I can't quite put my finger on it.  The beat is kind of inconsistent and never kicks in like it should.  It feels like it's constantly building and then it never fully delivers with that full punch. 

It should be a decent club song but I don't see this doing so well on the charts.  I could be wrong though.  It's been awhile since Ciara put something out so maybe her fans will help her get back on regular rotation. 

Anyway, it's still worth a look at this video just to catch Ciara shakin' that ass and looking hot as hell.  It looks like she's been working out something fierce and keeping that body tight.  Nice!

 "Gimme Dat" is from her new Basic Instinct album due out November 30th.

Bo Jackson's Nike Air Trainer SC II To Be Released As A Retro? (AWESOME)

This is kind of crazy.  I've been thinking about doing a post about the Nike Air Trainer SC II for the past couple of weeks.  After seeing Bo Jackson in the new Nike Boom commercial and also seeing the success of other Bo Jackson related sneakers, I wondered why we hadn't seen a retro of what was possibly the best old school cross trainer of them all.  I guess Nike was reading my mind because it sounds like it is finally coming back at some point in the near future.  No release date has been set but you better believe that I will be copping multiple pairs of these kicks once they drop.

I always loved this shoe but never owned a pair so I had to admire it from a distance.  It was popular when I was in 6th grade so it was up to my parents what shoes I could buy since I obviously had no money of my own.  I needed basketball sneakers much more than I needed cross trainers so there was no chance I was going to be able to score a pair.  There was a set of twins in my school that I was friends with that wore the Air Trainer SC II all year long and it made me really jealous.  One wore the pinkish red colorway above, while the other rocked a royal blue colorway which is one of the more under the radar colorways of this shoe but certainly one of the best. 

Hopefully they release the blue color along with the red and green that has been rumored to release.  Either way, I'm buying whatever colors are available.  These are too good to pass up.  Nike and Jordan Brand have been killing me lately because they keep releasing classics all around the same time which is destroying my wallet.  It's definitely a love/hate thing...

Here's the classic "Bo Knows" commercial that promoted the release of the Nike Air Trainer SC II. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Justin Bieber Calls Out Brady's Hair In A Rap (BETTER THAN EXPECTED)

I can't believe I'm posting something about Justin Bieber but I think it's warranted considering he called out Tom Brady in this weak ass rap.  When a 16 year old little punk starts calling you out on your awful hairstyle, maybe it's time to make a change.  Here's the line:

"Call up Mr. Brady,
Tell 'em to leave his hair to the guy that sang 'Baby'"

For real, Bieber.  Tell em why you mad son!  No superstar NFL quarterback should ever have the same hairstyle as some little midget teen pop singer.  Get a grip, Brady.  You think you are all G.Q. and shit because your supermodel wife told you that hairstyle was hot but almost everyone in the world, including this little punk are making fun of you.  I think it's time for a cut, homey.

By the way, even though Bieber wasn't really saying anything of substance, he actually rapped a lot better than I expected.  I have to give him a little bit of credit on that.  If he stepped up his lyrical game, he'd actually be halfway decent. The whole "I'm white" thing he said at the end was dumb as shit though.  We get it dude.  There are a billion white rappers now.   You're nothing special.  Just rap and leave it at that. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Thursday Throwbacks: George Kranz - "Din Daa Daa"

This is one of the crazier throwback joints I've ever featured considering this isn't really Rap or R&B.  I think it's worth posting though since George Kranz' "Din Daa Daa" had such a big influence on Hip Hop and the Breakin' scene.

You will probably recognize this song even if you have never actually heard it because it has been sampled numerous times over the past 20 years or so.  The most popular samples include the huge hit "Pump Up The Volume" by M|A|R|R|S,  "Praise Joint Remix" by Kirk Franklin and the most blatant rip off, "Shake" by The Ying Yang Twins.

By the way, is it just me or does Kirk Franklin sound like a slightly less crazy and more religious version of Mystikal? - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Brett Favre Hit In The Nuts During Practice (OUCH)

I hate seeing anyone getting hit in the nuts because I know how much it hurts but Favre kind of deserved this after last weekend's off field events, don't you think?  This is a warning to all married men out there.  If you take a picture of your junk and send it to so random hot chick, the bad karma is bound to come back to you.  Just don't put yourself in that situation.  It never works out well.

On a related note, almost nothing pisses me off more when chicks say that getting hit in the nuts doesn't hurt as bad as we make it out to be and that we are just exaggerating.  I'm not sure if you've ever encountered a dumb bitch that has claimed this shit but I have multiple times and I usually flip out on their ignorance. 

There really isn't anything worse than being hit in the nuts, especially when it's completely unexpected.  Even a little flick could set it off to the point that it knocks you to the ground and you lose all control of your body.  I give women respect on the whole having a baby thing because that's gotta hurt like a mofo but they will never understand how debilitating a ball whack really is.  Shit is the worst! - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Barry Sanders Jr. Is Nasty (STUNTIN' LIKE MY DADDY)

Anyone that was a Barry Sanders fan or just an NFL fan back in the late 80's and early 90's knows that Sanders is one of the best running backs of all time.  He was the most electric and exciting player in the league for years and he had kids all over the country (including myself) trying to imitate his every move on the field.  It was so disappointing to see him retire abruptly back in 1998 since it felt like he could have played for another 5 years. We've been waiting for the "next" Barry Sanders ever since but there just hasn't been anyone else that can compare.

No one has come close to his creativity, speed and style but it looks like we might finally have the a player that truly reminds us of the great one.  I guess it makes sense that the only way we could get Barry 2.0 would be through his own gene pool.  Barry Sander Jr. must have been studying his Dad's game tapes all these years because he looks eerily similar to his father.  I can't wait to see this kid grow as a player and see what he can do at the next level in college.  Kid is nice!!!

Here are a few Barry Sanders highlight tapes from back in the day.  Dude was so nasty! - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

KiD CuDi ft. Kanye West - "Erase Me" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Wow.  "Erase Me" is a catchy ass song, huh?  I'm a big Kid Cudi fan so I know he can sing but he took it to the next level on this one.  Other than the Kanye rap there wasn't a hint of Hip Hop or R&B in that song.  It was a straight up rock jam and I loved it. 

I love this guy's creativity and his willingness to put out something completely different as the lead single for his new album.  Most artists would go the safe route and release something that people would expect but Cudi is not that type of dude.  He definitely likes to keep people on their toes. Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager is scheduled to drop on November 9th.  I guarantee that shit is gonna be hot!

Nike Air Max Penny 1 To Return in Spring 2011 (DOPE)

DOPE!  It's nice to see the original colorway of the Nike Air Max Penny 1 coming back in the spring of 2011.  I missed the retro release back in 2007 and I definitely didn't have the originals back in the day so it would be nice to finally own a pair.


The Air Penny is definitely one of my favorite non-Jordan basketball shoes.  It has a super clean and futuristic look to it that still holds up today.  They also look dope with jeans and casual wear in general so you can wear them off the court too.  These are a must cop!

Hopefully they will bring Lil Penny back to make a few more classic commercials. - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets
