Darius McCrary Speaks On Making Music Forever And Pitches A Movie To The Breakfast Club (Video)

It is DEFINITELY hard to not call dude Eddie Winslow… but I will show proper respect to the brother. And I have low-key wondered if he would ever step back out into the public after going through his Karrine Steffans drama (Google it, not going back through it here). Welp, here he go. No need to wonder anymore.

MURS – “So Close So Far” (Prod. By Michael ‘Seven’ Summers) [Video]

“Love takes work…” Murs is right about that, and “as long as we’re fighting for love, we never lose.” Also true. All so true.

Great gems on “A Strange Journey Into the Unimaginable” (album out now). Check out the video above.

Nas – “NASIR” (Album Stream)

Of course, you heard about it… but have you actually heard the “Nasir” album. It’s 7 songs, so you might argue for the ‘EP’ stamp but they’re calling it an album (Nas and Kanye West) so let’s stick with that for now. Is it dope though? Listen and decide.

Stephen A. Smith Speaks On How He Made His Way Into Sports Journalism And On Marijuana Use (Video)

Stephen A. gets a ‘loose’ as his situation will allow. You know, can’t really get smoked out on camera even when he is off work. Must maintain the rep. But he does tell The DoggFather about his body part preference on a woman (i.e. that he is a ‘bottom feeder’).

On the latest episode of GGN, Smith chopped it up with Uncle Snoop in the studio and told stories about climbing from New York City to the top of the sports media food chain, bringing Snoop on his early shows and, of course, the reasoning behind his famously anti-cannabis tagline, “stay off the weeeed” (“I got family members that do it, I got friends that do it, but it’s not about the weed, it’s about the fact that it’s costing you money!”)
– Westfest TV

Ohhhh and wait until you see the Stormy Fronts weather forecast (wow)!
