A few months back I told you about the new Iceberg Slim doc in Movies To Check For. I got a chance to see this film earlier this year at the Atlanta Film Festival. It does a great job of giving your the foundation of Iceberg Slim. The conditions and situations which shaped his behavior. It also shows you the side many people probably have never seen… his wife and kids, as well as how his books became thing of legend.
It’s definitely a great piece of work and I can’t wait for the DVD to drop.
Until then… check out the official trailer, and remember, if you ain’t choosing, you losing. Make your next move your best move. Keep it pimping!
Keep an eye out for when this film hits your town. Check showtimes.
The Jordan Brand Classic takes the top high school basketball players around North America and brings them together for an all star game of epic proportions. I actually missed the game this year when it came on TV back in April. I ended up catching it later. A few of the names that stood out; Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Tyler Ennis, and Julius Randle. Two of these guys Andrew & Tyler are actually from Canada and are making a LOT of noise in the states. Check out this piece from On Point Basketball documenting their road to the Jordan Brand Classic held in Brooklyn, NYC at the newly built Barclays Center.
Anybody catch Jimmy Kimmel the other night? Baby Titus aka Trick Shot Titus is a toddler that has been setting the internet on fire with his ability to shoot the rock like Ray Allen in his prime. On a kiddie hoop the kid gets pretty busy!
Jimmy decided to put Titus against NBA legend Shaq to see who would win… Check out what ensues.
Titus is a problem. Really hope he sticks with it, the Charlotte Bobcats could definitely use a shooter like him right now. This is where it all started…
If you watched ABC’s Nightline news last night you might of caught this piece. Sneakerheads: Inside the world of high stakes sneaker trading.
If re-selling is what people consider to be a “sneakerhead” now a days, I’m definitely not one. Interesting to see the news cover how re-selling sneakers has become big business for some. What’s even more interesting is the kids on here are like 12 years old. It takes a village and the kids are definitely being raised a “different” way.
Salute to Chuck D, Professor Griff, Flavor Flav, Terminator X and the big homie DJ Lord. Tonight Hip Hop legends Public Enemy were inducted into the 28th Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Salute to Public Enemy for always making music true to their hearts. PE has never compromised their thoughts, ideas, and sound and it’s great to see them still able to tour the world to packed shows bringing the noise.
And to think back in the day, record labels, media, and many more said that Hip Hop would not last and it just a passing fad. Now it’s in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame with Beastie Boys, Run Dmc, Grandmaster Flash & Furious Five and now Public Enemy.
Listen to Chuck drop some jewels last year, after inducting Beastie Boys into the HOF.
DOUG ANDERSON IS A BEAST!!! Nuff Said. He beasted the dunk contest so bad this year, they don’t even show the other dunks in the highlights. “Don’t believe me just watch!”
Thursday night at GA Tech’s newly opened Basketball stadium, Detroit’s Doug Anderson astounded the crowd with an amazing mix of dunks. Add on too that, HE DID NOT MISS ONE DUNK!! Truly, this was better than the NBA Slam Dunk contest. Can’t wait for D.A. to get drafted so we can see him light it up for All Star Weekend. Also check the footwork, Anderson rocks Jordan Cement 3 Retro’s for the occasion. The same kicks MJ won his 2nd slam dunk title in Chicago wearing over “The Human Highlight Film” Dominique.
This kicks off NCAA Final Four Weekend in ATL. Tons of concerts, games, and festivities. What you planning on getting into?
Two Queens legends who have never worked together. Well… I guess it’s better late than never. New joint from N.O.R.E. who is officially calling himself Papi… I think I’ll stick to calling him NORE for a while. Lol. Large Pro on the track and it’s called “Built Pyramids.” If I was from Queens, this would be my anthem right now.
