From The Vault: Rihanna - "Pon de Replay" [Video]

Rihanna has changed a ton since this shit! She's successfully turned herself into the sex symbol you see in the above picture. We have Jay-Z, Chris Brown, and well I guess Team Rihanna to thank.

"Pon de Replay" was the lead single off of Rih's Music of the Sun, which actually dropped under Jay-Z's reign as Def Jam's President. Quick history lesson, Jay wasn't initially going to ink Rihanna to the Def Jam deal. He felt THIS song (which was on her 4-track demo) was too big for a new, foreign (as in new concept…not as in nationality) artist like her to live up to. He went on to state that he doesn't sign songs, he signs artists. She showed him. The album went onto certified gold status via the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), meaning 500k copies shipped…and it just so happens to be her worst selling album to date. Not bad, for a foreigner.

Word to Def Jam...


From The Vault: Ne-Yo - "Stay" (Feat. Peedi Peedi) [Video]

Who remembers the lead single from Ne-Yo, featuring Philly's own, Peedi Peedi? With a February 28, 2006 release date set, the debut album, In My Own Words, would go on to reach certified platinum status selling 2 million records worldwide. That was only the beginning…

Eagles Winning the Super Bowl??? Debate! [Raw & Uncut]

This is how it went down....

I'm at the crib wit my homie @PookDollaz52 , Corey, and Eric. We're just chillin and drinking, my man Pook had too many drinks and started talkin sideways...saying that the Birds will win the Bowl. So that leads to me sayin put the money a $100 bet is made. To confirm this bet i need i pull out the iPhone and record. After the bet is confirmed shots were fired at my team while the camera is still rolling, that leads to some Eagles slander and a crazy debate...Raw n scripts.

To clear the air, my team is the 49ers, and yes were are a mid-level NFL team at best. I know we are not "better" than the Eagles, but we do have talent and will be back SOON. But the debate was not about MY TEAM, it was about the EAGLES winning it all!


New Music: Curren$y - "Late Night Snacks"

Reebok taking a $25 MILLION loss, For FALSE Advertisement

Remember those Reebok Easy Tone shoes? The ones with the funny looking sole that was said to increase muscle toning in your thighs, butt, hamstrings, just by walking or running in the shoe? WELL IT WAS A LIE!

The Federal Claims Commission investigating these claims made by Reebok about their product. And the outcome is -$25 Million for Reebok.

I know for sure that plenty of people, especially women, were very much interested in these shoes. Who wouldn't want a shoe that claims to tone your thighs, and butt, just by wearing them. For those who don't have time, or who choose not to endure vigorous workouts, the Reebok Easy Tone seemed to be a perfect product.


"Reebok made unsupported claims in advertisements that walking in its Easy Tone shoes and running in its RunTone running shoes strengthen and tone key leg and buttock (gluteus maximus) muscles more than regular shoes. The FTC's complaint also alleges that Reebok falsely claimed that walking in EasyTone footwear had been proven to lead to 28 percent more strength and tone in the buttock muscles, 11 percent more strength and tone in the hamstring muscles, and 11 percent more strength and tone in the calf muscles than regular walking shoes.” (Federal Trade Commission)

From now on, if Reebok chooses to create a product claiming to tone muscles, and possibly help a person stay fit, they will need Scientific proof to contribute to those claims.

Does this make u think twice about REEBOK products?

Battle for i95 [Review + Highlights]

The letters "BBNS," which were short for "Basketball Never Stops" graced the backs of the jerseys the players would wear during a night to remember in Philadelphia's Palestra. The date was Sunday, September 25th when some of the NBA's brightest stars came together in Philadelphia, PA, of all places, and balled out…in the midst of an NBA Lockout.

It was 1000 degrees in the Palestra, and the place was packed. The Palestra is designed to hold 8,722 patrons…this night the historic building probably housed what seemed and felt liked double that. As basketball fans, LeBron haters and supporters, young ladies trying to make the next rendition of VH1's Basketball Wives franchise, media, and all others who were (and most likely, remain) thirsty for basketball during this drought, gathered to watch what some would describe as an All-Star game-esque exhibition.

The game was ultra competitive from the tip-off. Team Philly versus Team Melo. The rosters included:

Team "Melo"

Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks)
LeBron James (Miami Heat)
Chris Paul (New Orleans Hornets)
Josh Selby (Memphis Grizzlies)
Donte Green (Sacramento Kings)
Gary Neal (San Antonio Spurs)
Gary Forbes (Denver Nuggets)
Eric Bledsoe (Los Angeles Clippers)

Team "Philly"

Lou Williams (Philadelphia 76ers)
Tyreke Evans (Sacramento Kings)
Hakim Warrick (Phoenix Suns)
Kyle Lowry (Houston Rockets)
Wayne Ellington (Minnesota Timberwolves)
Jason Thompson (Sacramento Kings)
Mark Tyndale
Mary Collins
Dionte Christmas
Ronald "Flip" Murray
Aaron "AO" Owens

I was most impressed with the ball handling ability of Tyreke Evans and Chris Paul. Think yo-yo. They made approaching defenders think twice every possession and practically did what they wanted with basketball in hand. I noticed the lower marquee players such as Mark Tyndale and Dionte Christmas, both formerly of Temple University put in extra effort on the defensive end of the court. And Lou Williams was close to lights out from behind the arc…the City embraced him from the initial starting lineup announcements.

There were rumors that a few other players would either play or be in attendance, Allen Iverson, Kevin Durant, Marcus and Markieff Morris (who apparently both had Saturday - 9.24.2011 - night Kansas University commitments), and John Salmon, just to name a few who were not involved in the festivities… Either way, the players who actually played did a hell of a job putting on a show, for sweating, excited fans. Although not too much defense was played, there was enough of an effort to garner a pretty close game up to the closing two minutes.

Bron led Team Melo in scoring with a game high 43 point performance, while Anthony threw in his 31. Former Villanova University standout Kyle Lowry had a Team Philly high of 34 points and Lou Williams contributed 31 for the hometown squad.

Even after Team Melo battled back from an early 19-point first half slump and finally took their first lead in the fourth quarter, the role players on the Team Philly side contributed in gritty, blue collar fashion…that would eventually lead to a 131 - 122 WIN for the Hakim Warrick engineered Philadelphia squad.


During halftime, TWO $25,000.00 checks were made out to the Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD area "Better Basketball Camp" foundations…all derived from ticket sale proceeds.

Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson made a brief appearance, was cheered loudly by fans, and escorted out of the facility with just under 5 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

One overweight ref was uber extra during the game, and actually had my homie and I questioning his mental, and physical for that matter, capability.

Former Sixer guard Willie Green was in attendance in addition to super agent, Leon Rose.

Look Out For: @melanie_amaro [Video]

So, I'm really into this music thing…I think you all know that by now. It's rare I get goosebumps when I hear a new artist give their all. Very. Rare. This young lady though…she has talent beyond belief. She auditioned for X-Factor and it aired a few days back, and I'd be honored to introduce her to those who haven't already had the privilege.

I gave this performance 5 stars, and I EXPECT her to make serious waves in the industry. Look out for her, and Bey better watch that throne.


NFL Week 3: PHI Eagles vs. NY Giants [Highlights]

I had my Eagles losing 3 games TOTAL all season, they've already dropped TWO! To rivals at that. Eli Manning and the New York Giants bring home the "W" 29 - 16, in the Birds' home opener. Bad news for Eagles fans: Mike Vick left the game with a wrist injury.

Jesus…what are you trying to tell us?
