Kanye West’s Adidas Yeezy Basketball Shoe Gets A Closer Look

A Yeezy Basketball sneaker has been teased for a long time now and as right now, the shoe is being dubbed the “Quantum.” Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been spotted numerous times wearing the shoe, although there is no information as to when this shoe is actually going to be released. There isn’t even a price attached to the shoe which has some people wondering if it’s ever going to come.

Even more pictures the shoe have been released courtesy @yeezymafia, and it appears as though there are many different materials at play here. For instance, there is beige suede on the toe while there seems to be an interesting zebra-like primeknit pattern on the side. The entire back heel the shoe is black which extends to the tongue as well.

It is assumed that these have Boost in the midsole which would certainly make them comfortable out on the court. Once these ficially drop, there will be a lot NBA players who will be taking to the court in these which will absolutely help to boost the prile this new shoe.

What do you think the model? Would you cop these or are they a skip?

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Synth" Release Date Confirmed, Photos

Yeezy releases have been plentiful this season and a brand new three-color pack is coming the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2. The colorways in this pack will be the “Lundmark,” “Antlia,” and “Synth” models. It has been reported in the past that each these colorways will be region-locked and it’s looking as though that is actually coming to fruition.

The “Synth” model will be coming on Saturday, June 22nd and is being released in Africa, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and India, according to Sole Collector. The sneaker will also be coming in full family sizing with prices ranging from $220 USD for adult sizes ton $140 USD for infant sizes.

This particular model has a static upper with the translucent stripe and has a pinkish tint throughout the entire upper. It’s definitely a lowkey colorway that won’t be too controversial amongst all the Yeezy fans out there. If you’re an avid collector Yeezy’s, these will surely be another must-cop sneaker.

Tyga "Legendary" Review

There isn’t a rapper as easy to minimize in stature than Tyga. With now close to a decade under his rap-career-belt, he’s survived multiple record contracts and phases within the industry, and accrued a decent catalog for himself. None this has necessarily translated into respect or credibility sadly; plenty critics tend to lampoon him for being ostentatious or corny. Likewise, those who aren’t already fans his output tend to dismiss him based on his commercial focus or his many admitted moments media embarrassment that most rappers would be unable to return from. Yet, Tyga still perseveres, and has recently provided us with his seventh studio album, the boldly-titled Legendary. It’s an album hot on the heels a major comeback for Tyga and hopes to put him back in position as a major player in the rap scene. 

Last year could have easily been the end Tyga’s rap career to be perfectly blunt. His R&B album, Kyoto, was mostly one note and listless with a few songs accused plagiarism from other artists. As far as the fans and listeners were concerned, most wanted to make fun Hajime Sorayama’s erotic artwork for the record’s album cover rather than actually bother with the music inside. That he somehow managed to recover at all is almost miraculous, but sure enough, a mere few months later “Taste” became a smash hit the summer and turned the rapper’s fortunes around immensely. While the contributions Offset and producer D.A. Doman (who supports a bulkload songs on Legendary) can’t go understated, credit should go to Tyga for recognizing that a lot his fans, and perhaps the casual listener alike, simply wanted him to return to what he’d garnered appreciation for in the first-place: mid-tempo ‘ratchet’ style club records. As such, the new album Legendary contains a lot that but, perhaps to a fault, as there is very little otherwise. 

Legendary recognizes that the formula “Taste” is, not only a successful one, but what a lot people want and expect to hear from him. In fact while longtime partner/collaborator/producer Jess Jackson has no involvement on this album, a lot the people involved with this album are Tyga mainstays, such as the aforementioned D.A. Doman, Dupri or DJ Mustard. While this is by no means Tyga’s worst album (because again, Kyoto most vividly exists), it’s the most conservative and regressive as it finds him strip-mining his catalog from the beginning the decade– but without the more ambitious or experimental decisions. Besides maybe the Dr. Luke assisted (and probably TisaKorean inspired) “Maykherkhum,” so much it remains in the same mid-tempo post-ratchet sound that was pioneered by Tyga’s early successes such as “Faded” and “Rack City.” 

This same sort cynicism permeates on Tyga’s behalf, with most his rapping incredibly hushed and monotone, devoid excess. While it’s not a common argument for people to argue that Tyga is among the best rappers in the game, he’s an accomplished technician when he’s at his most inspired and energetic. Yet, as Tyga seeks out additional hits, it appears his eccentricities take a backseat.

Nevertheless Legendary isn’t without its moments brightness, and some those come from the various guests who have fun in Tyga’s nightlife environment. While Tyga and frequent collaborator Chris Brown sound joyless on the bouncy “Haute,” reggaeton star J Balvin sounds like he’s having the time his life. Meanwhile after the inspired albeit weirdly-titled “Lightskinned Lil Wayne” it’s Weezy himself who helps Tyga with the load for “On Me,” and later on, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie perfectly compliments the exotic sample for “Goddamn.” The less said about the features from Blueface (disappointing) or Swae Lee (atrocious) the better. 

Legendary is undoubtedly a bounce back from the Tyga we found at the beginning 2018. At the same time, there’s an unmistakable air “playing it safe” at the expense any extreme emotion– whether that be satisfaction or otherwise. Nevertheless, Tyga’s proven more than a few times that counting him out entirely is a fool’s errand, and that he has the talents and the capabilities to prove doubters wrong. He also has the talent to do a little more than that however, and one hopes that next time around, the rapper makes an album that fers just a little bit more than what’s tried and true.

Nikki Bella Showers New Boyfriend With Love Post-John Cena Split

John Cena and Nikki Bella have not had the cleanest break-ups. The two WWE Superstars famously got engaged in the wrestling ring but they split a few months later. Things went downhill since then and they’ve traded subliminal shots at each other on social media. Cena’s name has been in the news as late because he’s considering his retirement from in-ring action. He is also being rumoured for a number high-prile film roles, following in the footsteps The Rock. As for Nikki Bella, she’s already been clear about her future in the ring. She met her new man on the set Dancing With The Stars and today, she’s celebrating his birthday, showering him with love online.

Nikki has been romantically linked to dancer Artem Chigvintsev for months and today, she’s proving just how much love she has for him. The former pro wrestler posted a gallery coupled up photos, kissing Artem passionately and writing him a touching message. “Happy Birthday to a man who not only makes my face smile, but my heart,” she wrote. “You’re a special one Mr. Chigvintsev! Your relaxing, calm, patient, kind, happy energy and aura is contagious! You truly are the kindest soul I have ever met. Thank you for bringing a lot sunshine into my life. Happy Birthday my Artem!”

Hopefully, Nikki is able to make things last with Artem. They appear to be in a healthy, loving relationship and it’s great to see her with a smile on her face.

Man Arrested In 2016 Shooting Involving NBA YoungBoy

Baton Rouge, LA – A Baton Rouge man believed to be responsible for a 2016 drive-by shooting involving NBA YoungBoy has been arrested.

According to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office website, Trulondrick Norman was taken into custody on Monday (June 10) on charges of second-degree attempted murder.

WBRZ reports the shooting took place on November 2, 2016 in the 2000 block of Kentucky Street. When police arrived on the scene, they determined multiple male suspects had driven by the home and fired at two male victims who were standing in the front yard.

Later that morning, officers were dispatched to a nearby address and discovered the vehicle used in the shooting as well as a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Following the investigation, police learned the suspects had gone to the Kentucky Street area to confront the victims about an alleged murder.

As of this month, three of the suspects have been identified: Norman, Ben Fields and Kentrell Gaulden, better known as NBA YoungBoy. The arrest report states YoungBoy and Norman were the shooters.

Fields was also arrested on June 10 and charged with principal to attempted first-degree murder. He was released on Tuesday (June 11), according to jail records. YoungBoy pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a firearm for his involvement in 2017 and placed on probation.

In addition to the attempted second-degree murder charge, Norman also faces a possession of a stolen firearm charge. He’s currently being held on a $110,000 bond.

Norman’s arrest comes just days after police also linked another associate of YoungBoy to the 2017 shooting death of fellow local rapper Gee Money.

What’s Next For The MCU?

Avengers: Endgame closed out eleven years interwoven stories that captured the imaginations millions across the globe this past April. What Kevin Feige did with Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe was genius, and now every studio in Hollywood is scrambling to create their own interconnected universe. None have been able to replicate what Marvel and Disney have delivered. At the conclusion the decade long story, prominent heroes such as Iron-Man and Captain America have left their hero titles behind. Cap handed his shield down to Falcon, and Iron-Man’s daughter, or possibly his mentees such as Peter Parker or Harley Keener, will carry his mantle. But what happens after that? We are all aware that Disney’s new streaming service will launch several MCU-based shows, such as Loki, Falcon & Winter Soldier, and WandaVision. Still, the future the MCU seems harder to predict than ever before. 

Utilizing what little information we have from the movies that are in production, and also leaning on extensive comic book knowledge, I believe there is only one way for the MCU to go from here. When Endgame first dropped, I predicted that the multi-verse would play a role in Phase 4. The recent Spider-Man: Far From Home trailers have confirmed that the multi-verse is, in fact, being integrated into the MCU. In the comic books, there are several different universes or realities co-existing at the same time. Some universes feature entirely new heroes and villains, while others closely mimic the main timeline, which is called “616” in the comics. The 616 timeline can be compared to the main MCU timeline we’ve watched on screen for the last decade. Now that the multi-verse is being introduced though, the popular 1610 universe is rumored to play a large role in upcoming films. The 1610 universe introduced the world to heroes such as Miles Morales, the ethnic Spider-Man that stars in Into The Spider-Verse. Coincidentally, the animated Spider-Verse film uses the idea the multi-verse for its plot as well. 

The multi-verse gives Kevin Feige and Disney a way to introduce heroes as if they were already established. For example, the X-Men can now be brought into the main timeline without having to provide a backstory for how they were created. The multi-verse essentially created an entry point for Marvel to introduce heroes without crafting origin movies. There have been rumblings around the internet pertaining to which heroes and movies will be introduced next. Some these rumors have already been somewhat confirmed, although not announced ficially, by Marvel. These movies include Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, Guardians the Galaxy 3, and Ant-Man 3. The solo Black Widow film has also begun shooting in Europe, while more obscure heroes like Shang Chi and The Eternals are said to have movies already deep in development. Ryan Coogler has been confirmed to return to direct Black Panther 2, while Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is on board for a magical sequel his own. Namor, the MCU’s version Aquaman essentially, may be the character that connects T’Challa and Stephen Strange. Namor is a hero at times, but has been a nemesis to both heroes as well. Expect a team up from the King Wakanda and the Sorcsssor Supreme at some point in the future. 

Marvel Studios is supposedly working on integrating their new television shows with their upcoming movies, creating more mini-arcs much like actual comic books rather than a ten-year long storyline. Villains such as Norman Osborn and Doctor Doom are allegedly going to make their appearances soon, while heroes such as The Fantastic Four and the X-Men are slated to be included in future movies sometime within the next five years. The most popular storylines involving both teams have yet to find their way on screen, such as the heralded House M plot where Scarlet Witch alters all reality, to catastrophic consequences. Scarlet Witch’s new show will somehow bring Vision back from the dead, so the idea reality-altering may already be in play for the upcoming Disney series. Kang, a time and dimension-traveling villain that is a plight to all life, is also likely to make an appearance sooner than later. His villainy rivals Thanos’, and his obsession with timelines fits snugly with the current state the MCU. 

The future the MCU rests firmly in Kevin Feige’s hands, which is the only place I trust it. The multi-verse will open the door to a long list possibilities, the most promising which being the introduction the Fantastic Four. With Tony Stark gone, Reed Richards can step into town as the smartest man on the block. His introduction will then lead us to the rise Doctor Doom and the menace Galactus. Meanwhile, Disney’s streaming service will explore other dimensions. The Loki series leak suggests that it will take place in the past, leading fans to believe his escape in Endgame sent him through time and space. Intersecting realities, intergalactic villains, and interdimensional adventures will be the main focus the MCU going forward, making the film universe more and more like its source material as the years continue. 

Offset Hints At A Migos Summer Takeover: "New Chapters"

Last year, the Migos absolutely dominated the airwaves, starting their dominant run with Culture II. They continued with three solo projects, including Quavo‘s Quavo Huncho, Takef‘s The Last Rocket and Offset‘s Father Of 4. The trio was expected to release the third iteration their Culture series at the beginning this year but things were pushed back with Quavo telling us 2020 would be the year. We might still have to wait a while to hear the next Culture album but it looks like the Migos have some big plans for this summer. 

Offset Hints At A Migos Summer Takeover: "New Chapters"

Some people were hoping for a break from the Atlanta trio. Their sound has become somewhat redundant over the last few years and songs that would normally have superstar potential don’t reach the heights they normally would. That doesn’t mean the group isn’t extremely successful though. Offset got the hype rolling today, teasing some new music from himself and his team in one tweet.

“MIGO GANG TIME,” wrote the rapper with a photo all three Migos together. “New chapters otw.” He may be referring to Culture III, which will only be arriving next year. It’s also possible that the group is moving away from the gimmick altogether to try something fresh. What do you think this new chapter will entail and are you excited to see what they’ve got up their sleeves?

Radiohead Releases OK Computer On Bandcamp After Hack Ransom

Radiohead has released 18 hours of new material from the OK Computer era after hackers leaked the material online.

The release features 18 minidiscs with band material and music from Thom Yorke recorded by himself.  The entire set is not broken into individual tracks and is available for $23 on Bandcamp. For the next 18 days, all proceeds from sales of the material will be donated to climate advocacy group Extinction Rebellion.

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood confirmed the band suffered a hack in a post on Instagram. He says someone stole Tom’s minidisc archive and demanded $150,000 or the material would be released. Instead of complaining about the hack or ignoring it, the band decided to release the content themselves.

“We’re releasing all 18 hours on Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion… So for £18, you can find out if we should have paid that ransom.”

The stolen minidiscs contain lots of previously unreleased material and snippets of unfinished songs, ambient noises, and full band rehearsals.

Some Radiohead fans have compiled a track list and annotations since the leak went public. Some non-album songs included in the download are ‘Lift’ and ‘I Promise,” two tracks included on the 20th-anniversary edition of OK Computer.

The Instagram update notes that the material was never intended to be heard by the public.  The download is also huge since the file is not split up into individual tracks. The fan annotated guide is a pretty comprehensive look at this release for any die-hard Radiohead fans. You can find the full MiniDisc Hacked material right here and check out the fan annotated guide right here.

It’s nice to see Radiohead not caving to threats and making the material available to anyone who wants to pay for it. It takes the wind out of the leaker’s sails and gives fans an inside look at a full session.

Shannon Sharpe Blames Team Doctors For Kevin Durant Injury: Watch

Kevin Durant went down with an apparent Achilles injury last night in Game 5  the NBA Finals and the sports world has been lit ablaze ever since. Fans have been trying to figure out who is to blame for the injury and whether or not KD was ready to come back and help his team win an NBA title. It’s clear that the Warriors were desperate for a win and that’s exactly what they got as they pushed the Finals to a sixth game which will go down on Thursday in Oakland.

During today’s episode FS1’s Undisputed, Shannon Sharpe went on a pretty exciting rant about the Warriors’ team doctors and how they’re at fault for what happened. Sharpe even compared Durant’s situation to Kawhi Leonard’s battle with the San Antonio Spurs.

“This is why players do not trust team doctors,” Sharpe explained. “The doctor said KD couldn’t hurt it any worse than it already was. If that’s not malpractice, I don’t know what is. This is why Kawhi went outside & got independent doctors. KD should not have played last night.”

Now that Durant is out for the rest the postseason and probably the majority next season, he is currently on his way to New York to receive a second assessment his Achilles.

Kevin Durant To Travel To New York For Achilles Evaluation: Report

Kevin Durant made his return to the basketball court in Game 5 the NBA Finals on Monday night, although his return only lasted for about a quarter as he injured his right leg in what is believed to be a tear his Achilles. It’s the type injury that can keep you f the court for up to an entire year which spells trouble for not only the Warriors, but Durant’s earning potential in free agency. Many believe Durant came back to the lineup a little prematurely and that’s why he was ultimately injured so severely. 

With the NBA Finals heading all the way back to Oakland for Game 6, Durant is going in the opposite direction as according to Shams Charania The Athletic, Durant is traveling to New York where he will receive an evaluation on his injury.

Durant ended up leaving the arena on Monday night with a leg boot on all while he had to walk using crutches. It was a pretty sad scene for Warriors fans and the players themselves who have grown to love KD over the years. Durant was cleared to play by the medical staff, although it appears like that was a huge mistake.

The Raptors are leading the NBA Finals 3-2 as Game 6 kicks f on Thursday at the Oracle Arena at 9 P.M. EST.

Hipgnosis Confirms Yet Another Songwriter Catalog Acquisition — Michael Knox

Merck Mercuriadis’ Hipgnosis Songs Fund has scored yet another key catalog.

Hipgnosis has been on the move so far this year.

Mercuriadis’ music IP company has acquired stakes in several renowned songwriter catalogs in the music industry, including significant stakes in the catalogs of Giorgio Tuinfort (David Guetta), Teddy Geiger (Shawn Mendes), The-Dream (Justin Bieber, Rihanna), Poo Bear (Chris Brown, Justin Bieber), Itaal Shur (Santana), Bernard Edwards (Chic), Tricky Stewart (Rihanna, Beyoncé), and TMS (Jess Glynne, Little Mix).

Three weeks ago, Hipgnosis added two more to the continually growing list – Ari Levine’s and Jamie Scott’s catalog.  Levine, a Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer, is best known for his work as a member of the three-piece writing and producing group, The Smeezingtons.  The group’s other members include Bruno Mars and Philip Lawrence.  Scott, a British songwriter and producer, has penned hits for Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, and One Direction.

The latest moves come after Mercuriadis’ music IP company $185 million in an oversubscribed round in April.  Last summer, Hipgnosis raised $260 million.

Now, Mercuriadis has added yet another key catalog to its list.

Going country.

Branching out into country music, the Board of Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited and its investment adviser, The Family (Music) Limited – also owned by Mercuriadis – has completely acquired Michael Knox’s music catalog.

Financial terms of the deal remain undisclosed.

The American producer is best known for discovering and producing for the American country music singer Jason Aldean.  Knox has produced eight albums for Jason Aldean.  Four consecutively reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart.  Alongside Aldean, Michael Knox has sold over 35 million singles in addition to 18 million albums.  Together, they have 22 No. 1 hits on either the Billboard Hot Country Songs or Country Airplay charts.

Albums include Jason Aldean (2005), Relentless (2007), Wide Open (2009), My Kinda Party (2010), Night Train (2012), Old Boots, New Dirt (2014), They Don’t Know (2016), and most recently, Rearview Town (2018).

Knox currently serves as Senior Vice President of peermusic Nashville, having previously served at Warner/Chappell Music.

Speaking about the acquisition, Mercuriadis explained,

“We’re very excited to work with Michael, Jason, Jason’s management team, the peermusic team, and Broken Bow.  This is just the beginning of our endeavors in Nashville where we have the greatest respect for the creative community and its incomparable tradition of great songs!

Knox added,

I’m excited to be a part of the Hipgnosis movement.  Merck has shown a lot of excitement and appreciation for my 20 years of hard work.  It’s difficult letting go of something I love so much but finding someone as passionate about music as I am, made this transition a lot easier.

Kevin Durant’s Mom Fires Back At Critics Who Questioned KD’s Heart

Kevin Durant‘s mother, Wanda, has a message for anyone who questioned her son’s heart and his desire to compete alongside his Golden State Warriors’ teammates in the NBA Finals – “You DON’T know him.”

Durant, who had missed the Warriors last nine games with a reported calf injury, returned to the lineup in Game 5 in an effort to keep his team’s quest for a three-peat alive. From the jump, it looked as though KD hadn’t missed a step as he quickly scored 11 points and helped the Warriors to an early lead. However, he sustained an achilles injury early in the second quarter and an MRI on Tuesday is expected to reveal a tear which will keep him sidelined indefinitely.

In the wake the devastating injury, Durant has received an outpouring support, including well wishes from members the Raptors and Drake. KD’s mom also took to social media, in response to those who had doubted the extent KD’s injury from the start.

“For ALL you who question my son as a Man, question his Heart, question his Integrity and question his LOVE for the game basketball, you DON’T know him. He has a heart a true Warrior! This too shall pass. God Bless you ALL.”
