LeBron James x Kevin Durant – “It Ain’t Easy” (Prod. Franky Wahoo x Stewbillionaire)

Michael Jordan never recorded on a single, did he? Asking. If memory serves, he was in that Michael Jackson (RIP) video… but no vocals. Maybe King James gets a leg up in the better-than-Jordan-or-not-yet debate.

Check a box for Lebron AND Kevin Durant on the ‘Jordan never did this’ list. Recorded during the 2011 NBA lockout. Previously unreleased. Here it is!

Season 3 Premiere Of Vice’s Skateboard Culture Docuseries: ‘King Of The Road’ (Full Episode) [Video]

CRAAAZY! I just stumbled across this. Watched. Can’t say I fully understood, but I was fully engaged. Folks on a skate trip of a lifetime, shredding rails, shedding blood, and other gnarly and ‘bro’ stuff… all while trying to win bragging rights (and MONEY) as ‘Kings Of The Road.’ Just winning at life, man. This crazy life.

The race starts in Reno with a relay. Evan crushes while Glick gets stage fright. The Books are handed out and Foundation ends the night with a tender moment at a wedding chapel.

See Some Hardcore Parkour On Abandoned Hotels (Video)

They are wilding out! Free running, cray or dangerous… whatever you wanna call this parkour dudes are doing on here… This is it. The moves and music will get your heart rate up (whether you are an active participant in the sport or not).

We traveled to Croatia to film parkour on the rooftops of five abandoned hotels. Using slow motion cameras, we captured three of the UK’s best free runners reclaiming the space through movement. The hotels were bombarded during the Croatian War for Independence, and you can still see the impact hits on the walls there. They have since been abandoned for twenty years. Kupari is set to be demolished and rebuilt in 2019, so the vacancy might not be for much longer.

Jalen Rose & Jadakiss Talk About Artists’ Taking A Stand And Defending Their Music (Video)

Jada spoke on it: “All money isn’t good money.” It was good that Hip-Hop let EA Sports know that we stand with Kaep. Rappers can take a knee and take a stand, esp. when it comes to ‘mistaken’ censorship of their music.

(Hard to believe they called removing Kaep’s mentions in song lyrics a mistake.)

Jadakiss joins Jalen Rose to talk about the fact that Colin Kaepernick’s name was edited out of a verse in Madden 19 from a Big Sean song, and how the former San Francisco 49ers QB’s name was added back in after Big Sean’s complaints.

Two Wrestlers Speak On ‘Life After Sumo’ (Documentary)

The glamor and prestige of being on top of the sumo game in the Land Of The Rising Sun… if you can get to the top. And even if you do, being ‘about that life’ comes at a price. Watch VICE SPORTS tally up the bill in this documentary episode.

Sumo wrestlers enter training stables, or beyas, as young teens and dedicate their lives to the sport until they retire. Training involves incredible food intake, heavy beer consumption as a means of weight gain and daily full-contact sparring. Along with the health impacts, most wrestlers leave the sport with little education and less money. In this VICE Sports exclusive, we visit with two retired rikishis to get their take on life after sumo.

For The NYC Title, Brooklyn Tech’s Team Will Step In The Arena (Documentary)

If you cannot wrap your head around ‘step team’ as a sports/athletic activity, look at this and reconsider. Just saying. They go in as hard as any team on the court (or anywhere else).

You won’t find the most successful team at Brooklyn Technical High School on the basketball court or on the football field. You’ll find them stepping in the cafeteria – sweating, laughing and striving to keep their crown as NYC’s regional champions. In this VICE Sports exclusive, we met up with the all-female Lady Dragons step team to see their pressure-packed final days of preparation for NYC regionals.

Great story, regardless of what you ‘decide’ about the nature of the competition.

Changing The Game: Lacrosse Comes To Harlem (Video)

Up top, it’s all about the blacktop. The lyric, “Basketball is my favorite sport,” not lacrosse… right? Well, these kids are into it AND it’s helping them level up to a better shot in life.

Basketball courts may still dominate north of 125th Street in New York City, but more kids than ever are taking up lacrosse as their sport of choice. We followed Javon to hear what his friends think about lacrosse and how he plans to make his mark on the game.

Watch. Might have to change that lyric.

SlamBall, Born In The USA, Has Been Reborn In China (Documentary)

Just to review, or introduce… SlamBall is a bouncy-bouncy version of basketball played on floors with embedded trampolines to facilitate super-high leaps and bounds. As described in the above doc vid, the game is pretty ‘video gamish’ and due to business and sports culture trending downfalls, SlamBall got ‘slammed’ in the U.S. However, it has found life in China.

“We never left, we just needed to take the best path for us,” says SlamBall’s creator Mason Gordon. After years with little exposure other than showcases and bar conversations between nostalgic fans, Slamball is now experiencing a resurgence in China. With a focus on bringing programs to universities before securing any TV rights, the sport is finding a foothold in a basketball-obsessed nation. VICE Sports traveled to China to check out the nation’s first facility and take in the scene.

Neil Holmes Might Be The Last Black Bull Rider In The South (Documentary)

In case you didn’t know, roughly a fourth of the cowboys of old were Black. Today though, the world of professional bull riding, a sport rooted in ranching culture, is predominantly White. And when Neil Holmes leaves… even more so.

On this episode of ‘MINORITY REPORTS,’ VICE sent Lee Adams to Texas to meet Neil Holmes and Ezekiel Mitchell—two Black bull riders at different points in their careers—to find out what it’s like as a person of color trying to make it in the predominantly White world of professional bull riding. Holmes—an accomplished pro on the eve of his retirement—explains how he got into bull riding and talks about leaving the sport as the only Black pro ranked in the top 100 bull riders. Desperately trying to fill Holmes’s shoes is Mitchell, who’s struggled with the funds to travel, and has experienced racism in the sport first-hand.
