George Zimmerman was arrested yesterday on aggravated assault, criminal mischief, and domestic battery charges after he allegedly broke a glass table, pointed a shotgun at his new girlfriend and then kicked her out of the house that they shared. He was arraigned today with a bail set at $9,000. Nice work man.
In a strange turn of events earlier this week, the National Music Publishers Association decided to start going after a ton of websites that post song lyrics. They claim they are only going after sites “that engage in blatant illegal behavior, which significantly impacts songwriters’ ability to make a living.” Whatever that means. They sent out 50 take-down notices, including one to Rap Genius. So what did Rap Genius do? They promptly signed a licensing contract with Sony/ATV and can now operate freely and without any hassle from the NMPA. Wise move fellas.
The other day we reported Kendrick covering GQ magazine and this time we’ve got Justin Timberlake on the cover as one of the “Men of the Year”. He obviously had a crazy year releasing two albums and going platinum with both of them. Or one album with two parts, however you want to look at it.
The numbers are in and Call of Duty: Ghosts reportedly made $1 Billion yesterday. It set the record for biggest opening day drop, topping the previous mark of $800 million by Grand Theft Auto V. Not too shabby, Activision.
Apparently Hulk Hogan (who’s a low-key sneakerhead) and a ton of other current and former wrestlers are signing Jordans for $85 at an event this weekend in New York City. The event is on November 9th from 10am to 2pm if you’re trying to get in there and have the Hulkster sign your J’s. I can’t lie, if I lived in NYC, I would most likely be doing this.

Lil’ Dicky dropped off a new hump day track this morning entitled “Make Belief”. He spits over Drake’s “Wu-Tang Forever” beat for 6:42 straight and absolutely wrecks it. I’m tellin y’all, don’t sleep on this guy. This is probably the most serious I’ve heard him so far and it’s definitely a good look. Hope to hear more tracks like this. Well done sir.
“Medusa head on me like I’m Luminatti!” Rihanna takes that bar and turns it into her cover for British GQ. Looking good as always. Issue hits stands October 31st.

There’s a mock-up of the uniform in the picture above, can’t wait to see what these look like on the field. Nice work Phil Knight!
