One of my boys put me on to Action Bronson a few months ago and I was blown away that he wasn't more well known. Dude has some serious skills. He obviously sounds A LOT like Ghostface Killah but he still has enough of his own style that it's OK. Ghostface has even acknowledge the similarities but also gave A.B. his blessing since he appreciates his skills.
I heard "Brunch" on Shade45 on Sirius the other day so it seems like he is starting to gain some notoriety commercially which is cool. Definitely keep a look out for him...

It's crazy to think that a rapper doesn't know how to use a computer or the internet considering they need the internet more than ever to sell records and connect with fans but DMX is not your typical rapper. When he doesn't want to do something, he is one defiant mofo. There's no way this was fake. That was just X being X. Funny shit.

I thought this was going to be kind of stupid at first but Iman Shumpert brought some humor to it and ended up making a solid video. It sucks that he had to destroy a nice new iPhone 5 to make the video but it was worth it. Funny shit!

This has to be at the top of the list for Catch of the Year so far. There have been a few nice grabs this year already but this one has to be one of the most difficult. That was some incredible concentration by Nate Washington to stick with the ball even though he had to basically jump over and take it away from the defender. Nicely done!

I don't get too excited about new dunkers these days since I feel like we've seen almost everything you can possibly do but this dude Dmitry Krivenko aka "Smoove" got me all fired up because of his creativity and execution on some really difficult dunks. Plus, he made it look easy so I guess it's safe to say his nickname is warranted.
How about the behind the back, over the head and between the legs dunk at the end?!?! DAMN!!! Can we get some amateurs in the NBA Dunk Contest already? Dudes like this need to get recognized on a bigger stage...
At full speed, I thought this was a solid run but nothing too crazy that we haven't seen before. Then I saw it in slow motion and had a better appreciation of how nasty this kick return really was. This kid Taylor was making people dive and miss like it was a game of Tecmo Bowl and he was Bo Jackson. So nasty!!! Very impressive.

There's nothing that special about this dunk since "Air Up There" could do this with his eyes closed but then he would miss out on Maria Menounos' hot body as he jumped over her. If you can jump as high as this dude, it's nothing jumping over a 5'6" chick.
More than anything, I just wanted an excuse to post some pictures of Maria's fine ass...

I guess there were more than a few people that were a little rusty in Week 1 of the NFL season. In the video above, Vernon Davis stuffed himself on the crossbar after a failed "dunk" attempt. That was on Sprite commercial type ish!
I'm not even sure how this one happened but Browns Rookie QB Brandon Weeden gets caught underneath the huge American Flag that the military was breaking out for the national anthem. I don't know whether to blame Weeden for not warming up in the right place or blame the guys breaking out the flag and not even looking before they started running. Either way, it was pretty funny.
Finally, my boy Gronk looks like he needs to practice his famous Gronk Spike a little bit more since he fumbled it on one of his touchdowns from Sunday against the Titans. I think the Summer of Gronk may have had something to do with his rustiness. Dude was EVERYWHERE!

The audio quality on this isn't the greatest but it's still pretty cool to see this crazy collabo of Jay-Z and Pearl Jam. This took place at the Made in America Festival during Labor Day weekend. Nice!
Hot shit right here! This track is sick all around but the highlight is definitely Jay-Z's verse. He brought the heat on this one but Kanye wasn't too far behind either. I'm really feeling the beat too. It has multiple layers and keeps building and getting more hype with each verse. Dope!
John Clayton is the man when it comes to NFL news but he's kind of a dork. I actually want to believe this is what he's like in real life once the cameras are off. Too funny!
