Chris and Cliff Paul [State Farm Commercial]

Thought this was a cool ass commercial. And I couldn't think of any-body better to share it with...

Wake Up With The Breakfast Club: Best of 2012 [Video]

Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club. Let's review their 2012...

Road To Brooklyn: Avery Johnson [Video]

Avery Johnson is one hell of a coach. Talib Kweli is one hell of an emcee. Brooklyn is one hell of a borough. Junior's? Well, we know how I feel about Junior's.

It only makes sense, that we combine them all in the next episode of Road To Brooklyn. Press Play...AFTER THE JUMP!

The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Will the ASAP Rocky Leak Damage His Career? [Video]

ASAAAAAAAP! Get like me...And have your plumber on speed dial.

I think the way this question was posed has the audience confused a bit. We're discussing A$AP Rocky's career...not his first week album sales. I think the A$AP crew is doing a good job branding themselves, they have a strong following and a decent financial backing.

So, all they have to worry about is maintaining that originality. They'll be straight. I think a leak a month early will indeed hurt sales though.

Long.Live.A$AP. on shelves January 15th.

S@M!!! Cribs: Rihanna

If you haven't heard by now, Rihanna is RACKED UP...and RACKED OUT. PAID. GUAP-GETTER. MONEY MAKER. Get me?

She more recently purchased a reported $12 Million mansion in Pacific Palisades, California. Must be nice. The 11,000 square foot home features 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a large pool with h2o, arc-shooting jets, and approximately 20 personal parking spaces. I know. It's not fair, right? Detailed pictures AFTER THE JUMP...

The Phone With The Airbag

So, how many times have you dropped your expensive phone today? By the way, it's only 12pm EST as I type this.

We are all guilty of having a case of the butterfingers and Amazon Chief Executive, Jeff Bezos, realized that and decided that he (and his team) wanted to address the issue, as best they could. That address looks like this...

The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Can Ma$e Come Back For Good? [Video]


Now M-A-Dollar Sign used to be one of my favorite MCs. His flow was ill. His sense of style back then was dope. And his songs were great. That was 16 years ago though...

Fast forward to my outlook for 2013, and uh...yeah...

Joe Johnson strolled the streets of Brooklyn with native Rosie Perez. Who better to serve as an escort? I have to say, although we're not friends and he doesn't keep me posted with life in NY...he's seem to have adjusted well on the court. Brooklyn Baby!

Wake Up With The Breakfast Club: Freeway

"Philly, Philly, what that rap be 'bout???" *in my Peedi Crakk voice*

I personally feel like Freeway was lowkey getting clowned during this interview, but in classic Philly Freezer fashion, he handled himself accordingly and did what he came to do.

Free is focused and there's not much that can shake him. Diamond In The Ruff? I'd say so...

Wake Up With The Breakfast Club: Macklemore

Macklemore stopped by the Breakfast Club and while there, he was impressive. I like him as a lyricist before...unfortunately in 2012 and beyond, "it means more" to like an artist off stage. Macklemore gets my vote. Very humble guy, and maintained humility throughout this interview.

If he keeps this attitude up, the sky is probably the limit for his talent. Topics of discussion? Jimmy Iovine, being friends with Ellen - yes, that Ellen, former substance abuse and 78 thousand copies of The Heist sold... 100% Independent? You do the math.

Interview, AFTER THE JUMP!
