You still can’t ban the Snowman. Especially, you can’t stop Jeezy from partnering with Freddie Figgers and Figgers Communications. While the platinum rapper is known for collaborations with fellow hip hop artists, he has had side hustles, like Avion Tequila (for which he sold his equity) and American Cut Steakhouse. Jeezy’s mission is to show street fellows that it’s okay to embrace corporate America. His thirst for economic excellence has even extended into the drinking water market, with Defiance Fuel Water. From selling crack cocaine on Atlanta street corners to a baron of real estate development, Jeezy has reinvented himself. He has provided a roadmap for other hustlers to take their money from the black market and transform it into legitimate businesses. As a force on the microphone, Jeezy has established himself as a motivator. Whether it’s a rap or a real estate project, Jeezy invests not only his money, but his time into these endeavors. The various ventures all stem from the way that Jeezy has put intellectual effort into the way that money is made.
Before roving mobs start chanting “lock her up!” Cardi B should be given her chance at due process like any other rights holding American citizen. A Grammy, a husband, a baby, three number one singles, and an ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Award, and a number one album all set up Cardi B to be amongst the wheat while other female rappers have become the chaff. The indictment regarding her allegedly attempting to “assault two women with intent to cause serious physical injury and other charges like misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy,” and harassment all amount to hate. It is the hatred of the successful for being successful. If Cardi B would have been a dancer still sliding down poles with a few thousand dollars attached to her name, would she be in this conundrum?
If you’re going to ban LaVar Ball, do it for the right reason. Do it because he is slightly deranged and out-of-control when it comes to evaluating all of his sons’ basketball skills. In a decision made by ESPN, Ball may no longer appear on any of its network programs due to a comment he uttered to sports anchor and moderator Molly Qerim. The quote from Ball to Qerim was that she could "switch gears with [Ball] anytime.” Qerim (who is married to former NBA player and fellow ESPN co-worker Jalen Rose) and the network took offense to the line and have barred him indefinitely. In the video, Qerim took the language in stride. She actually switched gears! Ball is a fool and a delusional dad who says and does things without a filter. What he said may have been off the cuff but his statements about how son Lonzo Ball is better than Steph Curry and Lebron James was particularly ghastly. He was wrong about the UCLA Bruins winning the NCAA championship. Though he was right about Lebron James going to the Lakers. Fast forward and one finds LaVar Ball in the most trouble for words that he spoke.
The Anthony Davis trade to the Los Angeles Lakers may prove to be a boom for the Jumpman brand. With the duo of Davis and Lebron James on the same squad now, the Air Jordan “Lakers” sneakers might be a hot seller. Fans and supporters will have the opportunity to match the exclusive kicks with those purple jerseys. Because James already wears a 23 on his jersey, Davis will be in a position to change the number, as he once played with the figure popularized by Mr. Michael Jordan himself. The internet has already devised a plan for Anthony to take the number 21. From the brain of legendary designer, Tinker Hatfield, and Jordan the sneaker, which was popularized in the Spike Lee film, He Got Game (1998), saw inspiration from the paw of a panther. Complete with a hologram and the Jumpman symbol, a basketball, and the number 23, the sneaker have been reissued numerous times. Now Lakers fans can sport their Lebron or Davis jerseys to the game, at the bar, or in the comforts of home. On July 20, these faithful will be able to witness a possible playoffs run, and maybe even a Finals appearance during the 2019 to 2020 season.
It’s time to snitch. In the wake of DJ Official’s shooting death, it is the appropriate hour for people to start naming names, and telling on these savages. Such brutes ought to be discovered and brought to justice for their crimes. DJ Official had just gotten done working with Nipsey Hussle before his tragic demise in March by homicide not too far from where Official received shots. His name was André Wakefield. He did not achieve levels of success as a producer for the likes of Cardi B and YG just to be gunned down like a dog in the street.
OJ Simpson is looking like he never had a double homicide charge against him or served nearly a decade for robbery. All of this, of course, is allegedly orchestrated propaganda to boost the former NFL star and actor’s profile. He donned casual clothes by a poolside, showing off his ring, watch, and sunglasses in one Instagram video. In it, he addressed all of the dads out there on Father’s Day. In a Twitter post, Simpson provided much more substance. He outlined the rumor that he is Khloe Kardashian’s father and that Kris Jenner and he engaged in trysts.
