Paul George Sinks Double OT Winner As Westbrook’s Triple-Double Streak Comes To End

big ralph | February 23, 2019

To think: Russell Westbrook's record triple-double streak is actually playing second fiddle to Paul George's MVP-level performances of late. In last night's both of those headlines came crashing down – Paul George's 45 points included the inevitable game-winning shot, handing the visiting Utah Jazz a thrilling double overtime loss.
But Russell Westbrook whose historic run of consecutive triple-doubles came to end last night, finished with 43 points of his own, to go along with 15 rebounds and 8 assists in 43 minutes of action. Westbrook's streak of 11 triple-doubles broke the previous mark set by Wilt Chamberlain, whose 9 games looked to be unimpeachable by modern standards until Russ came along displaying all kinds of genetic freakdom.
Honestly, man, I'm just very thankful, blessed, give all the thanks to the man above to be able to go out and compete,” Westbrook said post-game. “And that's all I do each and every night, and whatever comes with it, ..

How The Roots’ “Things Fall Apart” Changed Rap

big ralph | February 23, 2019

Things Fall Apart, a novel by Chinua Achebe, details a Nigerian man who is exiled from his village and returns years later to find it changed and usurped by colonial forces. When it’s all said and done, these Western forces ended up eroding the traditions and beliefs that built the foundation for the man’s way of life. Change comes for everyone.
Things Fall Apart was a landmark in African literature upon release in 1958, selling millions of copies and studied in classrooms across the world. Several decades later, a rap group from Philadelphia would nick the title for their fourth studio album, one intended to comment on their own experiences with change. It was an album that the group, The Roots, hoped would take them to the next level after toiling in relative obscurity for years.
Their infamous 1996 music video for “What They Do” defined the group as anti-mainstream, perfectly content to keep doing what they did best. But their real and raw wasn’t making an impact on the same level a..

big ralph | February 23, 2019

The Raptors held tight in DeMar DeRozan's return to Toronto, pulling away with a narrow 120-117 win. Regardless of the final outcome, it was DeMar who came out a victor in an emotionally-charged encounter with Kawhi Leonard, the player who supplanting him in a cornerstone role, in the immediate future. Incidentally, it was DeMar's best friend Kyle Lowry who was asked to cover his wiry extremities all night long.
After the game, DeMar DeRozan let his competitive streak get the best of him, as he ruminated over what could have been in the contest. “I should've just known that they were going to be aggressive. I saw Kyle lurking. In moments like that, you try to get aggressive, try to get a steal first,” he explained.
DeRozan finished with a respectable 23 points and 8 assists in 34 minutes, Raps' fans were stung by the ill-fated memories of past playoff encounters when DeMar passed up a decisive game-winning shot – only to watch Spurs' teammate Davis Bertans bri..

R. Kelly’s Mugshot Revealed, Arraignment Scheduled In Sexual Abuse Case

big ralph | February 23, 2019

R. Kelly is facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving 4 alleged victims. The singer surrendered himself to legal authorities Friday, February 22, and his mugshot was released soon after. Kelly's arraignment is scheduled just days after his arrest, set for March 8.
His attorney, Steve Greenberg, maintains his client's innocence. He believes Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx succumbed to the public opinion's pressure. “I think all the women are lying,” Greenberg said. “Mr. Kelly is strong, he's got a lot of support and he's going to be vindicated on all these charges — one by one if it has to be.”

Scott Olson/Getty ImagesVideo evidence of Kelly's alleged abuse of a victim was announced earlier this month by Michael Avenatti. He gave the tape to the State's attorney's office, hoping that it would prompt a whole new case against the R&B icon. “This tape leaves no question as to whether R. Kelly is guilty of multiple s..

Offset & Cardi B Give “Clout” Chasing A Bad Rap On “Father Of 4”

big ralph | February 23, 2019

While his children all receive equal billing on the cover, Offset saves the nuptial dance for his lawfully wedded wife. On “Clout,” the 12th track on an album highly-apologetic in tone, Offset allows wife Cardi B a certain degree of “owner privileges,” for as long as it takes for him to even the score. An ever-so boisterous Cardi B challenges the devil-worshippers in the crowd to keep using her name in vain because, in the end, it'll only deepen her pockets.
On the other side of things, Offset makes “Clout” his very own confessional booth, albeit without conjuring any incriminating evidence from the past. When he raps, “Shorty DM me, I'm straight,” you get a sense he is A) repeating a self-emanating mantra B) remains unconvinced in his better judgment, and C) knows full well Cardi B is breathing down his neck. To his credit, Offset is in a good position to usurp his fellow Migos' members, as the group's preeminent soloist, all the while pronouncing his “philanderin..

J. Cole Set To Debut “Middle Child” Music Video On Monday

big ralph | February 23, 2019

In no more than 25 characters and 4 words total, J. Cole brought his fanbase to a standstill last evening. Right then and there, Cole jumped on Twitter, announcing a “Middle Child” music video was due on Monday. The Dreamville rapper was just hours removed from seeing his last-minute verse on “How Did I Get Here,” the second track from Offset highly-apologetic debut.
If his KOD album rollout is any indication, the “Middle Child” music video is most likely going to be a high gloss production. The song itself has already surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify alone, numbers that were tabulated in less than a month's time. God knows where the “wholesale” figures would rank if they were accessible with one right-click. Consider this, the YouTube upload of “Middle Child” sits well above the 42 million mark.
J. Cole's budding interest in the realm of videography saw him complete, and publish a music video with Dreamville's Ari Lennox – for a song they debuted over the NBA Al..

R. Kelly Fears He Won’t Get A Fair Trial: Report

big ralph | February 23, 2019

Despite maintaining his innocence, R. Kelly thinks he’s got no chance to win his trial. Sources of the “Ignition” singer told TMZ that Kellz fears that he won’t get a fair trial following the aftermath of his Lifetime documentary “Surviving R. Kelly,” and the nonstop coverage. He and his camp believe that everyone and their mothers have heard about these damaging stories, especially in Chicagoland area.
One source said, “There isn't a person in Cook County who hasn't heard all the hateful things said about him.”
Kellz reportedly believes that even if he shows the evidence proving his innocence, the jury will still find him guilty. With that, the Chicago singer has been in a depressed meltdown for days, moving on from his initial panic attacks.
This news comes hours after R. Kelly turned himself into the Chicago police Friday night after he was being charged on 10 accounts of sexual abuse. There are a total of 4 alleged victims, 3 of which are underage.

Rihanna Spotted Out With Billionaire Boyfriend Hassan Jameel

big ralph | February 23, 2019

Rihanna decided to celebrate her 31st birthday the other night by watching LeBron James at the Staples Center as the Los Angeles Lakers took on James Harden & the Houston Rockets. However, she didn’t go alone as she was spotted back with billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel who was by her side.
Instead of sitting front row and courtside, the two cheered LeBron on from a private suite with some of Rihanna’s closest friends. RiRi rocked a home LeBron James jersey, while Hassan sat alongside her in a black baseball cap and could be seen smiling while Rihanna passionately cheered on the Lakers.
We tend to forget that Rihanna is still dating Hassan because they’re so rarely seen together. In fact, the last time we saw the two together was back in December when they were spotted at a Malibu restaurant, and prior to that was last year’s Grammy’s after party. So it’s clear Hassan like to stay under the radar, but he apparently made an exception for Rihanna’s b-day.

big ralph | February 23, 2019

Last year, Hot 97’s DJ Megan Ryte announced a major label deal with Interscope Records and released a single called “On & On” with Tory Lanez and HoodCelebrityy. Today, she’s back with her follow up offering called “Unsure” with Joey Bada$$, Yung Bleu, & Arin Ray.
“I wanted to switch up and do R&B vibes but also a smooth hitting, hard-hitting’ record and I think TM88 he produced it as well as Super Mario & Victory. It’s able to bring that feel. I wanted to put some people who never did a record before so I picked Joey Bada$$, Yung Blue, Arin Ray,” Megan said on Hot 97 earlier today.
Take a listen to the new collab and let us know what you think. Who laid down the best verse?
Quotable Lyrics:
I don’t even know what its about anymore
You be fussin’ you be fighting like you tryna start a war
I said I don't know if you believe in love like before
You be coming, you be going but you never close the door
You so unsure
