Common pays homage to Nas “Life’s a Bitch” in the next installment of the 2DopeBoyz/Restless Films “VS” series directed by Court Dunn.







Deron Williams  No. 8 jersey was retired after playing 15 games with Besiktas in Turkey. He was one of many NBA players who left to go overseas and play, but was the only one to stand out. He averaged 21.8 PPG and 6.5 APG in his time in Istanbul and he says he hopes to return. For his jersey to be retired after 15 games is funny as hell but it shows the impact he had in Turkey. Besiktas loved Deron Williams and I would assume they are quite saddened by his departure. The TBL will take a blow because of the NBA lockout ending and with players like Zaza Pachulia, Thabo Sefolosha, Semih Erden and Mehmet Okur returning to their American teams. But in the end, Deron Williams will be a legend not just in the NBA, but overseas as well. Check out the ceremony below.




Imaginary Foundation is not just your ordinary clothing line, they are the meaning of inspiration. The Imaginary Foundation is a think tank from Switzerland that does experimental research on new ways of thinking and the power of the imagination. They hold dear a belief in human potential and seek progress in all directions. The small clandestine team is headed up by the mysterious “Director,” a 70-something Uber-intellectual whose father founded the Dadaist movement. Avoiding direct publicity, the team has sought clothing as an unlikely vehicle for bringing their ideas beyond the academic realm and into popular culture. I have been not just a customer, but a fan of the line. The thought behind the artwork is amazing and the message that each portrait delivers is surpass great. Greatness is what every person should strive for and I think Imaginary Foundation does a great job of portraying it. I suggest you check them out. They have clothing for men and women, so go to for more info.



Sources say NBA owners and players have reached a tentative agreement to end the lockout. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of situation Saturday because the agreement has not yet been announced. After a secret meeting earlier this week, the sides met for more than 15 hours Friday, working to try to save the season. Under the deal, a 66-game season would begin on Christmas. But the  handshake deal still must be ratified by both owners and players. Let’s hope nobody says some dumb shit to fuck it all up! Smh.



Time is one thing that we can’t get back. So why waste it with someone we don’t want to be with? Love is patience, so if you are with somebody that you love very much and you know that they have no intentions of hurting you. Stick it out. But my problem is when people are with their partner and they cheat on them, but still want to stay with them. No, it don’t work like that. If you really don’t want to be with that person you don’t have to be, because at the end of the day you are wasting time, energy, and money. Now, I am not trying to tell people to leave their partner if they get on their nerves, because that’s not a good excuse lol. All i’m saying is if you ever get to a point where you just don’t have the feelings you use to and you are cheating with someone else. Just tell your significant other you want to leave. Instead of you fucking around with someone else and being a bitch to your partner, because that aint cool. After my first experience with being cheated on as a teen lol smh. I told myself, whenever I get involved with someone. I am going to tell them “hey, whenever you get to the point where you feel like you have to cheat on me, just tell me. I will be ok.” Therefore, they won’t be any wasted time on both sides and we can move on. I understand leaving isn’t easy to do. Everybody isn’t mentally tough enough to tell their partner or even accept leaving as an option (pyscho). There might be something your partner does that you feel like someone else will never do. But if you feel like they won’t be in your long-term plans, than kick rocks.  So be honest instead of lying because it will make things a whole lot easier.




There is an epidemic going on, and it’s been going on since the beginning of time. It’s called “faking til you make it”. Now, there is a cure and all it takes is a look in the mirror and one dose of the TRUTH. Thing is, some people don’t like the truth. So their symptoms tend to get worse smfh. I understand people want to feel special and want to be accepted in this world, I totally understand. But you should not have to lie to yourself and others about what you do. You have men and women who go out here and claim to be rappers, singers, actors, athletes, models. If you do those things, then cool. But the problem is when the person goes out and spends money to maintain this fake life that they are not living. Also they brag about who they know or who they are affiliated with. When in reality they only met them a couple times or went to school with them and said a couple words to them smh. Some even go on the web and post pics of themselves in the club every week or they talk about how they popping bottles, when they are broke to their name. People have to get through their heads that you don’t have to fake that life. If you have your priorities straight, and put the energy and effort into it, you can live that life. I mean hell, you putting the energy and effort into maintaining this life you don’t live when you can be taking that energy and effort to do it for real. Like seriously, get your shit together if you know you do this. You can be some much more if you stop that fake shit. So yeah, faking it til you make it is not cool. Just go head and make it. Everybody doesn’t have a perfect life, so don’t worry about what people have to say because they not doing for you at the end of the day. But if you faking a life you are not living, STOP IT. Just be you and live your life. Be great.



One of the most anticipated albums on the low this year is probably Yelawolf’s “Radioactive”.  The hill-billy from Alabama may be the best rapper out of Alabama.
