Are headphones the new liquor??


Once upon a time, it was liquor..but now, it seems like every celebrity/music star is endorsing their own headphones. Crazy.

First Snoop, Dr. Dre & Diddy...but now King James has crossed-over and joined the trend. That's right folks, the best player in the game (sorry Kobe) is introducing to the world -- PowerBeats. Check the excerpt below from allhiphop.com:

(AllHipHop News) Dr. Dre and LeBron James have teamed up to promote their new venture, LeBron's Power Beats headphones by Dr. Dre and Monster Cable.

James' headphones, which retails for $169.95 per-pair, are designed with the fitness enthusiast in mind.

"We worked with LeBron to make sure these would be the ultimate headphones for athletes. I'm always about the performance, the sound, and LeBron brought what he needed in terms of function to the table," Dr. Dre said of the headphones. "I've been wearing the prototype for PowerBeats in the gym every day for the last few months so I can honestly say they're the best headphones for working out."

Check the commercial out:



Oh yeah...Dre also said Detox will be here by Christmas. Don't hold your breath.

HOLLA.

Nascar does Hip-Hop??


Say word?

Word.

Cutty Boi aka Mr. Nascar is on pace to rewrite the history books by dropping the first NASCAR music album -- Road to Victory Lane. I can't front, I'm excited to see how two polar opposites, in stock car racing & hip-hop, can come together. For the mean time inbetween time, check out a gang of Cutty Boi hits here. Some videos here and follow the homie on twitter here.

Hip-Hop is UNIVERSAL



Okay, before y'all look at me like I'm crazy just look at how much of a reach OUR MUSIC reaches across the world. We created a powerful culture that gets exploited more and more everyday...the only reason I posted this was so y'all can see how much of an effect your words and the way you carry yourself can resonate across the globe. I love the fact that Hip-Hop is growing over in Russia...because, just by looking at some of those comment on Youtube I can see that their youth are facing similar hardships as our youth. But I say that to say this: Hip-Hop is our child...and even though she may be a little off of her way, we still have the ability to get her back on track. Keep grinding. Keep trusting God, and lastly...keep making that GOOD MUSIC.

One time for True Hip-Hop. It will never die.

..Dear 8 lb, 6 Oz newborn, baby Jesus...

PLEEEEASE. Can we get a win today? That's all I'm asking for. The city most desperately needs one today or else I can feel a year of home-team bashing on the horizon.

The city just isn't the same when we're not winning. I remember that year we lost every single home game...I swear the murder rate spiked that year. Okay, that was a bad joke, but you get the point. Our morale directly hinges on the Panthers and if they suck, then we just seem to think the same way about ourselves.

BUT, I got an idea...instead of bashing the team and new rookie QB Jimmy "Pickles" Clausen, let's just ride with them through the growing pains and take our lumps with them. You never know what might happen if you show some love...

GO 'CATS!!

HOLLA!
