When I first heard that Duckdown Records signed New Zealand Rapper David Dallas a few months ago, I was a little confused because it was so far outside of their normal type of artist, or at least that is what I thought at the time. Now that I've heard a few tracks from Dallas and have seen the video above for his single "Runnin'", I have to admit, I understand the signing a lot more now. The kid has skills and the fact that already had a #1 single internationally made him a no brainer to add to the label and try and bring his success to America and other parts of the world.
This song may sound familiar to you since it has been featured on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, the FIFA 14 Soundtrack, Madden 25 trailer, Major League Baseball’s postseason coverage, and NFL Thursday Night Kick-Off. I fully expect this track to catch on even more in the next few weeks and months as people hear it more. It's just a dope song all around. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more from Dallas and checking out his new album Falling Into Place. David Dallas is definitely one to watch in the Hip Hop world.

Wow! NBA 2K14 for the next-gen consoles looks ridiculous!!! I always thought it would be difficult to improve on the graphics and gameplay of the current sports titles but NBA 2K14 for the XBox One & Playstation 4 looks like it is going to prove me wrong.
It literally looks like you are watching a live game and the simulated moves and gestures of the players are dead on. I wanted to hold out on getting a new console to let them work out the problems that new consoles always seem to have but I don't know if I can wait with games looking like this.

I didn't know Ben McLemore had hops like this. These dunks are very impressive for his size. He's listed at 6'5" but I feel like he's closer to 6'3" at the most. Either way, he can throw down with authority and it's possible we might be seeing him in the dunk contest this year. Impressive.

This might be the worst mascot dunk attempt I've ever seen. I know it's still only the preseason and everyone is working out the kinks but this is just bad. I'm pretty sure I could do better with that without even practicing once. I hope dude gets his act together before the season starts or he is going start getting heckled like the original Lucky at the Garden. That dude was the WORST!!!

Whoever came up with this concept at the ad agency must have been high as fuck or a complete lunatic but I respect the randomness and willingness to try anything. Hot Pockets are obviously huge in the stoner crowd so this must be their Magnum Opus of Snack related entertainment.
Kate Upton in anything is solid since she is my favorite smoke of the moment and you can't go wrong with having her bouncing around and smiling at the camera. Snoop might have fallen off lately but I'm still a huge fan so that's cool and it's topped off by a remix of "Just a Friend" by Biz Markie and an appearance by Larry King so this thing is pretty epic.
But where the hell did Bow Wow come from?!?!? I didn't know little dude was still even alive, yet alone making "music". I guess you gotta make money somehow now that Entourage has been off the air for a few years. What the hell happened to the little hobit? Shit got real.

Props to this dude for trying to play it off all cool but there is no way you can recover from a sleepy foot when you are carrying a huge camera that probably weighs a good 20+ pounds. I wonder how long it took for the pins and needles to go into effect and if he was still filming. There is nothing worse than when that feeling when you can't even move a muscle or else it will feel like you got shot in the leg or foot and you are going to be screaming in pain. Dude might want to reconsider his sitting position for the rest of the season...

Every rapper and their mother has already jumped on the instrumental to Drake's "Pound Cake" track off his new album but these two freestyles from Rakewon and The Lox are not only the best I've heard but I think they are even better than the original.
In case you live under a rock and haven't heard the original, here it is:
