From The Vault: Jay-Z x Beanie Sigel x Memphis Bleek - Change The Game

The Dynasty was supposed to put Young Hov's protege's ALL THE WAY ON. For the likes of The Neptunes, Just Blaze and Kanye West, it was a #POWERMOVE. For the commercial careers for Memph and Beans… … …not so much. However, it was still a hot album. I think Beans lyrically ran the album in its entirety. Overall, it was well structured, fairly promoted, and sold over 2 million copies. Quote me.

NBA To Investigate Jay-Z Kentucky Visit

So apparently Jay-Z's visit to Kentucky's locker room AFTER THE WIN, may have been illegal.

Hov must have forgotten this was on his resume: "New Jersey Nets Minority Owner." The rapper presumably has a relationship with Kentucky (and former Nets) coach John Calipari through William "Worldwide Wes" Wesley.

Here's the issue though, NBA team personnel aren't allowed to make ANY contact with college players before they declare for the draft. None. Zero. Zip. Don't even come close. The Wildcats' roster features a pair of potential lottery picks. (SEE: Freshman F/C Enes Kantor & Freshman SF Terrence Jones)

Ken Berger of CBS reports that the NBA will thoroughly investigate the matter and cites a previous case where Celtics GM Danny Ainge sat with Kevin Durant's mother at the Big 12 Tournament back in 2007. Ainge was fined $30,000.

Jay-Z chump change.


Kick Game: SneakerCon 4.2.2011 - Washington, DC

The event usually takes place in New York…exclusively. But in an attempt to really show off, the premiere "buy-trade-sell" showcase will also hold the DMV down THIS SATURDAY, April 2nd, 2011.

If you're a "sneaker head," or consider yourself one, you should definitely be in attendance. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it, so…somebody take some pictures for me.

For more info, check the flyer AFTER THE JUMP.


A Picture's Worth: Kevin Hart's New TV Family...

Music Video: Dirty Money - Your Love [Remix] (Feat. Trey Songz & Rick Ross)

Check out the latest release from Diddy-Dirty Money. I like this song, but I'm not too sure about the video. I just think Diddy and Director, Colin Tilley could have gotten a little bit more creative on it. It serves it's purpose though. Which brings me to the point, what is the actual purpose of a music video???


UPDATE: Universal Music group has taken the video down…from what looks like just about everywhere. So if you haven't seen it, #SorryForYourLoss. In the meantime, I think you can watch it HERE. (NOTE: #BigUps PrefixMAg.com I guess…) And check the trailer below, courtesy of WSHH.
