Man, Derrick Rose has really had it rough lately. Right when we’re all ready for him to come back and play at his best he gets injured again and has to sit out an entire season. What are we to think? Wait for him again and maybe he’ll come back better than ever? Well that’s what everyone was expecting until he got hurt this time. It’s good to hear though that Derrick Rose himself is still hopeful and has not ruled out playing in the playoffs this season. The Miami Heat are clearly the dominant force in the East with the Pacers, but other than that… what other East Coast team is giving them a run? It would be nice to see D. Rose back at 100% during the playoffs. Guess we’ll just have to wait. Click HERE for the full story.
That torn triceps muscle must be doing well again because it has been made official that Ray Lewis is back on the Ravens’ 53-man active roster. This was a move the team made so that Lewis can participate in the playoffs this year. The part that sucks, he won’t be active for their game on Sunday against the Bengals. Click HERE for more info.
Damn I was just starting to feel Gucci Mane ever since Ferrari Boyz dropped with Waka Flocka and now he’s in trouble again? I guess he plead guilty to two counts of battery and will serve a 6 month sentence, pay the woman’s $5,000 medical bills, and pay a $3,000 fine. These rappers need to stop getting locked up. I want more music!
2Pac’s back… on the cover of XXL. Be on the look out for this issue as it hits newsstands August 16th. Here’s a little excerpt from the article written about him.
“[Tupac] cared for people,” he said. “That was his main thing. He really cared for people. I think that’s why he would get so upset when people tried to question his commitment, his love for Black women or Black men. The East Coast/West Coast, you know, that’s a fabrication. I don’t have to begin to tell you that. So when that was questioned, it bothered him. Because he would give his heart or soul. He was a giving person. He would give anything to people. He would go in a store. [If there was a] Black man who couldn’t afford a $1,500 pair of boots, he would buy ’em for him. Think that Black man would ever forget Tupac? That’s just the way he is. But I don’t think that he did it for that. He did it because he had it, and he didn’t. That’s the way he is.”
By now everyone should know that snapback hats are back in full effect. Can’t lie I’ve been trying to get my collection up too. Here Chris Brown and Tyga get on the “Tupac Back” beat to remind everyone about the trend. Here ya go.
