NFL Week 2: Raiders Smash The Jets (Game Highlights) [Video]

The Raiders keep rolling! Wonder how Raider Nation liked those FREE Skittles Beast Mode hooked up for them? Because they surely liked the outcome of the game. Oakland over the Jets, 45 – 20. Dominance!

#RaiderNation

(And if you REALLY know or wanna know about Marshawn Lynch’s turn-up at the game, hit the jump and watch. No spoiler alert. You just gotta watch!)

Politics/Comedy: Clapping Back For Jemele Hill, Roy Wood Jr. Has Jokes (And Ideas) For The White House And ESPN (Video)

Roy Wood, Jr. You, sir, are a FOOL for this one. But so on point. Great segment, and an instant classic clip for ‘The Daily Show.’

Roy Wood, Jr. unpacks a White House official’s call for ESPN to fire anchor Jemele Hill after she called President Trump a white supremacist on Twitter.

I bet Jamele is cool people, even if she did straight diss the beloved ‘Awful Waffle’ (ahaahahaaa)!

DL Hughley Salutes Co-Host Michael Smith And Others At ESPN For Having Jemele Hill’s Back At ESPN (Video)

Wow! If this is true… wow! Talk about sticking together. Michael Smith, risking his career, apparently told ESPN something like ‘I refuse to do the show if you let Jamele Hill go!’ He backed his co-host – willing to sacrifice his livelihood – and so did a small army of others. Yes, before ESPN could even consider kicking Smith out, too, Elle Duncan and Michael Eaves stepped on some ‘if they go, so do WE’ stuff. Even Michael Wilbon took some air time to vocalize strong support for Hill.

I really hope DL has the scoop on what is a true, and truly beautiful, story of solidarity. That’s how you get your people’s back!

David Banner Speaks On His New Album, How Trump’s Election Was A Good Thing, And Black People Needing To Be More Racist (Video)

Preach, David Banner, PREACH!

About all that in the headline, and then some! Not only will he speak about his activism… and struggles with alcohol, depression, etc. But Banner gets things started with the WAY to deliver an activist’s message in music. First Commandment of an Entertainer, esp. in Hip-Hop music: THOU SHALL NOT BE WACK!!!! Spiritual/Positive/Conscious music artists cannot lean on the message and just put out wack music. And looking at you, too, rapping-azz-rappers: Stop sacrificing lyricism for beats, or vice versa… No wack music!!

Architects and Engineers: Solving the Mystery of Building 7 – w/ Ed Asner

Hurry up and watch this one before it is “removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content”… again! Not trying to theorize on any conspiracies afoot, but watch and see if you see ‘scam’ or ‘spam’ or ‘deception.’ No. Quite the opposite. A call for a new investigation; for truth!

Take 15 minutes and watch above. Consider the argument laid out. Perhaps it will lead you to visit AE911Truth.org to investigate the explosive evidence of the Twin Towers and to sign the petition calling for a new World Trade Center 9/11 collapse investigation.

Inmate To Action Star: The Amazing Life Of Danny Trejo (Video)

Nice video summation of the life of an actor who went from the guy you kinda recognize to the accomplished action star you betta reckonize! Thing is, that acting gig turned big came after a prison bid and a f**ked up life before. So glad Danny Trejo pushed through. Seems like a great dude. Which is awesome! With all the movies and commercials (and Trejo’s Tacos restaurant, watch), it would suck if he turned into a Hollywood jerk after being enriched by such humbling experiences.

R&B/Soul: The Foreign Exchange – “Shelter”

You already know the math: Phonte + Nicolay = The Foreign Exchange = Dope Music Every Time! And this time out is no exception. If you have checked out their latest project, you already know. If not, you already know you are in for a treat… when you play “Hide & Seek” (compilation LP)… in particular, that “Shelter” single. Nice!

R&B: Victor Oladipo – “Song For You”

Whaaaat? Okay, basketball players have been trying to get into the rap game for decades. And at least recently, a couple have put out some decent off-court, on-mic work. But a b-baller doing R&B? Nah, you have not heard that… yet. But Victor Oladipo (V.O.), how are you coming out of the gate singing a Donny Hathaway jam maaaaan. You trying to be a R&Baller all o’ sudden? Ha!

(Not bad actually. Click and listen for yourself.)

Ray Allen Knows His Move From Boston To Miami Was Hard On The Fans. But Management & Teammates, They Should Understand… It Was Business (Video)

Plain talk from former Celtics standout Ray Allen. Here he is in Shanghai, telling his side of the story. In essence, he is letting viewers & fans know that it wasn’t him wanting to leave Boston, it was the Celtics… not doing what it took to keep him there. No beef with nobody on his side, even though some folks apparently reeeeally had HEAT for him for taking his talents to South Beach.

Ray Allen spoke in an exclusive interview with Tencent’s Lisa Hsu about the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Paul Pierce and being a champion. Tencent, ESPN’s partner in China, is hosting its annual Super Penguin Basketball Celebrity Game in Shanghai.
– ESPN

Makes some good points in this interview. Pro sports is BUSINESS, not personal. And there is NO loyalty. The Celts could have dropped Allen, and that would be that; not a tear shed.

Michael Rapaport Was There When Pac And Snoop Met (Video)

Yoooo! The Stormy Fronts commentary ruled (funny and fine af)! Rapaport was cool (but excited to be there) as a fan blowing the smoke cloud away from Snoop… but the ‘weather’ report though. Yessssirrrr! Oh okay, the ‘news’ was good, too.

Today on GGN, the one and only Michael Rapaport stops by and describes bearing witness to the first time Snoop and Pac met. All this and more on this week’s GGN… u-bitch-u!!! Make sure you check out the “I Am Rapaport Podcast” on iTunes, or at IAmRapaport.com for more of this guy’s lunacy!

The Game – “Heaven 4 A Gangsta” (TuPac Tribute)

Tupac was murdered 21 years ago… and we’re still talking UNSOLVED mystery. We just posted on the A&E look into the lives and passing of Pac and Biggie. Think law enforcement is still following up on leads though? Don’t answer. Just don’t.

A nation, the Hip-Hop Nation, still mourns Pac’s loss. But the music lives on; especially when a worthy emcee turns in a tribute. Enter The Game. Hearing this will likely make you REALLY think on it: Is there a “Heaven 4 A Gangsta” (song from the A&E documentary series, “Who Killed Tupac?”)? Gotta be. The Game sent this one up from the booth!
