Allen Iverson Speaks On Meeting Michael Jordan And Knowing The Notorious B.I.G. (Video)

Wow. A.I. knew Biggie like that. Got to think about that music project he was determined to drop at risk of torpedoing his pro ball career back in the day. Birds of a feather and such; wondering if he got a push, nod (or unh!) from Biggie if that rap career would have taken off.

(Okay, done thinking… NO WAY anybody gives up multiple MILLIONS for playing ball under contract for a ‘chance’ to make ‘some money’ in the rap game. NBA ‘bankshots’ paid WAY more than the ‘bank’ A.I. would have gotten as a rapper.

NBA legend Allen Iverson sits down with Complex’s Speedy Morman to drop gems on everything from his relationship with The Notorious B.I.G., to his conversation the first time he met Michael Jordan, to his iconic shooting sleeve, most memorable Kobe Bryant moment, opinion on the state of the NBA and more.

Pusha T Speaks On His ‘Run For the Oceans’ And Says “King Push” Is 85% Complete (Video)

Interesting. Instead of moping about ‘taking the L’ in the recent U.S. Presidential election, Pusha T is getting into being more ‘self-governing’ and pushing the causes he is interested in (with no more ties to the White House)… and partnering with companies in line with them.

Adidas and Parley join forces to help draw attention to and preserve the world’s oceans. Pusha T performs and speaks on the importance of brand activism and his love for Adidas.
– Complex News

Hmm… Push drones on and on a bit about Yeezy’s beats being the driver for choosing his production to dominate the forthcoming album… over his OGs The Neptunes (Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams). Not disrespectful really. Kanye is a well-known worldwide all-time beast on them beatz. But, maybe, someone might feel slightly slighted with how ‘energetic’ Push got when he got the question. Just saying.

Food: South L.A.’s African-American Taco Movement (Video)

Okay, you know Memphis for the barbecue and Philly for the cheesesteak… Basically, there are a lot of cities with food that reps. Check out a new food movement: South Los Angeles’ African American Tacos. Just a taste of Food Grails, a new First We Feast travel series.

Welcome to Food Grails, a new First We Feast travel series hosted by Miss Info. As a music journalist, she’s travelled the world and seen the power of artists who rep for their hometown sound. Now, she wants to discover how foods define a city’s flavor—from Atlanta’s lemon-pepper wings, to NYC’s beef patties. These are America’s food grails.
First We Feast

Learned some math: Profit from slanging tacos > profit from selling weed (wow, plus weed heads probably come through with ‘the munchies’ yo). Serious business here. Watch.
