LeBron James knows how to make a grand entrance. The new Los Angeles Lakers leader made his first public appearance since signing with the team two weeks ago when he popped up at the team’s Summer League game against the Detroit Pistons.

While James’ appearance definitely caused a buzz , it was his fashion choice that really made for the MVP of the day.

James was wearing a pair of Just Don “Lakers” shorts with the iconic yellow and purple color theme, which come etched with the web store’s patented logo design strewn across the front — a style that was translated over many of Just Don’s high-priced athletic apparel and has since become a brand staple. Despite costing $500 a piece, the shorts immediately went out of stock.

The shorts themselves look amazing, utilizing 100% Poly textured mesh with a knit rib waist band, and James knew exactly what he was doing wearing them at that time. James made a statement to the Lakers organization that he’s all in for the upcoming season and for the organization overall.

Big Baller Brand needs to take notes! See more pics of the pricey pair of shorts below:

The disgraced founder of Papa Johns decided that he should play the victim in his controversial situation.

Prior this week, John H. Schnatter resigned as the organization’s director after he confessed to dropping the N-word amid a phone call with an advertising office. The 56-year-old tycoon presently asserts his words were taken outside of context to the issue at hand and that he was compelled to utilize the slur.

“The agency was promoting that vocabulary […] And I made it real clear: ‘Listen, we’re not gonna go there. We’re not gonna talk about this,’” Schnatter told Louisville radio station WHAS. “They pushed me and it upset me, and I just said, ‘Listen, other people have used that word. I don’t, and will not use that word and people at Papa John’s don’t use that.’ And that was the comment. But they actually wanted to get into that vocabulary, and I said absolutely not.”

Along these lines, Schnatter claims he just utilized the word since he was endeavoring to remove himself from indecent narrow-minded people who utilize the word. (Mmmkay?)

In another meeting with WLKY, Schnatter blamed the previously mentioned advertising organization for attempting to coerce him after he was “pushed” to utilize the N-word. He said he declined to meet their requests.

“They wanted $6 million to make it go away. I’m like, ‘I’m not paying you $6 million,’” he told the radio station. “And they made it pretty clear […] the words were ‘If I don’t get my (bleep) money, I’m going to bury the founder,’ said one of the executives. So, I’m not for sale. They can take the $6 million and whatever, they’re not getting it. So, yeah they tried to extort us and we held firm. They took what I said and they ran to Forbes and Forbes printed it and it went viral.”

According to Azealia Banks, she had a less than welcoming experience during her taping of Wild n Out.

The Harlem rapper took to Instagram story to share a lengthy reaction to her appearance. She claims that the entire thing was already set up, and they were making some insensitive jokes that brought her to the point of tears.

“I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course …. cry baby cried,” she captioned a photo from the set. “Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this – hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon a** freestyle battles, (not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home.”

She continued, “I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call ‘urban’ pseudo comedic ‘FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day’ greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred. Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment. Yemaya was really on stage.”

Considering that the Hip Hop improv show is centered around roasting each other, there’s a good chance that Azealia didn’t think the jokes were funny and went too far.

Nick Cannon responded on Instagram, but Banks made a less than tasteful clap back.

It’s no secret that Young Thug has always been one to play by his own rules. He credits his bold fashion sense for impacting the new generation of rappers.

The Atlanta rapper is known for wearing gender fluid attire, that has only fueled the homosexual rumors. Although Thugga has consistently denied being gay, he acknowledges that his choices only add fuel to the fire. And in the Instagram live recording below, he doesn’t sound regretful for anything.

I’m the drip god. I created this sh*t,” he said in the video. “I made the way for young n*ggas to open up and be they self. I did this. I got crucified. They call me gay; they ain’t call y’all n*ggas gay […] I made y’all tighten y’all jeans up […] I’m the wave god. I’m the master. I’m the founder.”

Former President Barack Obama has landed in Kenya, his dad’s nation of origin, in what was a low-profile visit than the ones he made to the nation as congressperson and president.

Mr. Obama made a trip to Kenya on Sunday to advance the opening of games and preparing focus that his relative, Auma Obama, established through her altruistic establishment, The Associated Press detailed.

In a Twitter post on Sunday night, President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya indicated photographs of himself meeting a tieless Mr. Obama in Nairobi, the capital. “It was a great pleasure to welcome you back,” he sent in inviting Mr. Obama.

In another Twitter post, sent from the authority presidential record, Mr. Kenyatta said he and his appointee “had a refreshing chat” with the previous American president and his relative.

Dr. Obama experienced childhood in Kenya and returned there, in the wake of living in Germany and the United Kingdom, to work for the philanthropy CARE International, as per a concise history posted on the site of her establishment, Sauti Kuu. Her work at CARE concentrated incompletely on acquainting young ladies with sports as a vehicle for social strengthening.

Sauti Kuu, lives in Nairobi, serves youngsters and youngsters, especially from urban ghettos and country networks. As indicated by the establishment’s site, its new games and preparing focus is in Alego, obviously a similar town where Barack has said that his Kenyan family is from.

A pic of rap sensation Cardi B has flooded the blogosphere with countless hilarious memes captioning what the little pretty girl with the afro and her hand on her hip could be saying.

Childish Gambino has praised the Donald Trump balloon which protestors in London inflated over the weekend.

The US President visited the UK for four days last week for a “working visit”, but his presence in the country sparked a number of protests. The most notable demonstration occurred in central London as a group of protestors inflated a giant effigy of Trump, depicting him as an orange baby.

During his headline set at Lovebox on Saturday night (July 14), Gambino took a moment to praise the efforts of the protestors and the city of London in general, where he lived last year while filming Solo: A Star Wars Story.

“I lived in London for a whole year. that shit changed my life,” he said during the set. “You know we’re not that different. I’ve been seeing the same shit here that I be seeing in America.”

“I used to be like, ‘Oh man, London can’t be that bad, you don’t got guns like that.’ And then y’all came out with the acid, I was like, ‘Oh fuck! That shit is terrifying.’”

“But everybody feels the same way,” he continued. “I was very proud to see that big balloon [of Trump]. That shit is unfair. But the scary part is you gotta fight for that shit. I know it’s scary as people with a bunch of technology and data to fight for shit, because you know what happens to people who fight for shit.

President Trump ripped former President Barack Obama early Monday in a series of tweets hours before a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In a following tweet, Trump said the nation’s relationship with Russia has “NEVER been worse,” citing “many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity” and the “Rigged Witch Hunt.”

Trump told CBS News in an interview broadcast on Sunday that Strzok’s testimony last week on Capitol Hill was “a disgrace to our country.”
“I watched some of the testimony, even though I’m in Europe, of Strzok. And I thought it was a disgrace to our country. I thought it was an absolute disgrace,” he said. “Where he wants to do things against me before I was even, I guess before I was even the candidate. It was a disgrace. And then he lied about it,” Trump added.

Strzok’s quickly devolved into rancorous partisan bickering after he declined to answer questions about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Moscow. The president has frequently labeled that investigation a “witch hunt.”

Strzok exchanged text messages critical of Trump during the 2016 campaign with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair. He was removed from the Russia investigation when the messages came to light, but Republicans have targeted him as key to uncovering what they allege was systemic FBI bias against Trump during the campaign. Democrats, however, have labeled that effort as politically motivated.

Strzok also investigated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

It hasn’t been made known as to whether he signed as a label signee or to RN’s management, but with the LOX already on Roc Nation, Jada feels right at home as a solo artist. The group released their first album in almost two decades on Jay’s label this month.

Much has been said about the release of Teyana Taylor’s K.T.S.E. album as some in the music community believe that her album was not delivered with the same care as some others in the G.O.O.D. Music five album roll out and even the possibility of fans not receiving all of the music that was created. While visiting various media outlets Teyana provided complaints on her album, which may have come across as “publicized emotions” with the finished product and her team. She set out to change the narrative on Instagram.

“I LOVE MY ALBUM and never said that I didnt AND BELIEVE IN MY ALBUM with all of me,” she wrote. “My complaints never came from a place of anger but more so from a place of hurt that I felt that I owed the world more.”

Assuring fans that there wasn’t any source of regret being on the G.O.O.D. Music roster she also added: “I never meant for my passion to be mistaken for ungratefulness however i’m always open to agreeing to disagree, that doesnt take away from the bond I share with not only Ye but all of my G.O.O.D Music family.”

View the entire post from Teyana Taylor below.

For a better clarity of my “publicized emotions” toward my album…I LOVE MY ALBUM and never said that I didnt AND BELIEVE IN MY ALBUM with all of me. My complaints never came from a place of anger but more so from a place of hurt that I felt that I owed the world more. After 5 years of patience I could have anticipated the culture would be hurt that all I had to offer them was 23 mins. I have a very loyal and active fan base that I’m extremely indebted to and that I am extremely dedicated to. Though a shortened version shocked me upon its released date i appreciate my brother Ye for helping me produce my most vulnerable, personal and soulful album to date. I think that our collaboration on this album shows and proves to add to the culture we creatives promise to push forward! I never meant for my passion to be mistaken for ungratefulness however i’m always open to agreeing to disagree, that doesnt take away from the bond I share with not only Ye but all of my G.O.O.D Music family. Yall know ima keep shit a buck! #KTSE and last but not least I want to thank everyone for the love and support of #KTSE! 💕

LeBron James first appearance as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers went down at Sunday’s (July 15) NBA Summer League match-up between the Los Angeles Lakers and Detroit Pistons in  Las Vegas. Appearing in a white tee, Lakers shorts and an all-purple edition of his rookie sneaker, the Air Zoom Generation, King James was met with cheers and a standing ovation from fans in attendance.

It was rumored that LeBron would be making an appearance at the Thomas and Mack Center in Vegas, but third-year star Brandon Ingram was also on hand to watch the rising Lakers as he cheered on their efforts on the court.

For the action going on between the lines, the Lakers showed out for their new leader blasting the Pistons 101-78 to continue their undefeated record. The game was hardly ever in question, the summer league LakeShow hopped out to a 33014 lead in the first quarter and were led by second-year guard Josh Hart.

Wrestling icon Hulk Hogan has been reinstated into the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame, one of the latest steps for continuing his career three years after a tape became public where he was using racial slurs.

The WWE released a statement on their website in regards to his reinstatement:

After a three-year suspension, Hulk Hogan has been reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame. This second chance follows Hogan’s numerous public apologies and volunteering to work with young people, where he is helping them learn from his mistake. These efforts led to a recent induction into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame.

Hogan was terminated from WWE in July 2015 after a rant was captured on audio where he spoke on his daughter’s boyfriend using various African-American slurs and insults. His inclusion in the Hall of Fame shows the rumors surrounding a return to the Vince McMahon led wrestling organization may indeed be true.

Tonight (July 15) WWE is hosting their Extreme Rules PPV but if a return is coming soon it will likely be at their Summerslam event in Brooklyn this August.

If you love to eat cereal, you might want to reconsider a certain brand right now.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday (July 12) that 27 more people have reported getting sick in a multi-state outbreak of salmonella, linked to the now-recalled Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal. This brings the total number of illness-related reports to 100 people since March, although the outbreak was not announced until June.

According to the CDC website, symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps, and typically present 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria. The first cases of illness in this outbreak began with symptoms on March 3, and the most recent individuals began feeling ill on July 2.

Symptoms last about four to seven days, and although most people improve without treatment, some may require hospitalization because of severe diarrhea. Thirty people have been hospitalized in this outbreak.

Salmonella can also travel from the intestines to the bloodstream and ultimately the rest of the body. Death is rare, but may occur if the person is not treated quickly with antibiotics. Thankfully, no deaths have been reported in this outbreak.

Florida and Colorado are the latest states to report illnesses as part of the outbreak, bringing the total number of states affected to 33.

On this day in Hip Hop history, rap queen Missy Elliott released her debut LP, Supa Dupa Fly.

Arguably the most influential release by a female rapper in history, this project birthed one of rap’s most important icons, male or female. The Hip Hop/R&B experimental masterpiece not only delivered a fresh sound to a period in between dominant trends, it also set the tone for what would be considered a radio hit at the turn of the millennium.

supadupafly

The sound and success of this project is due in equal part to Missy and fellow Virginian super-producer Timblaland. The new age, digital R&B style production pioneered a sound that became the standard of any Top 40 crossover hit of the era. His technical ability as a beat maker personally complimented Missy’s unorthodox, almost broken-up, flow and smooth, soulful vocals. Missy’s ability as an innovative song writer allowed for the mind boggling production to not be wasted. The subjects that were touched on came with new perspective and the way she rode each beat added such emphasis, giving the project a strong theatrical quality.

Commercially, it performed quite well peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album claimed the #1 spot on the R&B/Hip Hop chart and made appearances on music charts in New Zealand and the Netherlands.  The album was certified platinum in the United States and silver in the United Kingdom, both in the year of its release. Critics across the board praised both Timbaland and Missy Elliot for their work on this album, calling it “a key prophecy of the dominant 21st century Black pop” and “everything the Hip Hop doctor ordered; a woman who could flip between aggression and romance, sex and nonsense, materialism and imagination, without batting one outrageously spidery eyelash.”

Imagine that your freedom or a potential life and death interaction stemming from an arrest all relied on the flip of a coin. That’s the case in Georgia where two police officers have been issued administrate leave after it was found out an arrest of a woman came down to a coin flip.

Sarah Webb was stopped for speeding by officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson and when faced with the decision to give a ticket and let her go or arrest her, the duo left it up to a chance of heads or tails. An investigation from 11Alive news revealed the two used a coin flip app and the entire ordeal was captured on a body cam.

Body cameras capture from the pull over to the arrest and even the truth that the arresting officers did not have detected speed rate. At the 2:30 mark of the footage the conversation regarding the coin flip occurred and even though the flip went in favor of Webb, she was still arrested and taken into custody.

Webb is now aware of the circumstance that led to his arrest in which she said “Wow, these people put my freedom in the hands of a coin flip. That’s disgusting.”

The case has reached beyond a local level and is being investigated by internal affairs.

The dangers of the many misguided stereotypes about Black people are most dangerous when someone in power subscribes to them.

On Tuesday, Republican Gov. Matt Bevin visited Nativity Academy at St. Boniface, a Louisville, KY middle school that is 86 percent Black and only 1 percent white according to education nonprofit GreatSchools.org. Before entering, Gov. Bevin recorded a brief introduction for his Twitter followers.

In a promotional video he tweeted, Gov. Matt Bevin said the club was “not something you necessarily would have thought of when you think of this section of town.”

“I’m about to go in and meet the members of the West Louisville Chess Club,” he explained. “Not necessarily something you would’ve thought of when you think of this section of town.”

The video quickly drew blowback from some community leaders and members who described the governor’s comments as tone-deaf.

His misconceptions come as no surprise, as Bevin has sided with issues negatively affecting minority communities, such as the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, lowering the minimum wage and the Blue Lives Matter law.

Elizabeth Kuhn, the governor’s spokeswoman, said in a statement to ABC News that Bevin met with the chess club to “showcase an important program that is encouraging sportsmanship and character building among Kentucky’s youth.”

“It is disappointing that some are trying to shift the focus away from the incredible accomplishments of these talented kids,” Kuhn added.

While the Governor’s intent might have been good, words have meanings. In 2018, Bevin might want to look up and read about the many definitions that define Black Excellence.

After numerous infidelity rumors and break ups-to-make ups, Rapper T.I. wished his wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris an awkward Happy Birthday and congratulates her on ‘getting her own bag’ during a joint Instagram Live.

We all fell in love with the Harris family—even before their hit reality TV Show ‘Family Hustle’ debuted in 2011. Tiny was considered an R&B legend in the group Xscape garnering multiple hits throughout the 90’s. After the group disbanded, Tiny began dating T.I. who rose to success and she became the ultimate ride-or-chick supporting her man through numerous court litigations, prison sentencing, joint arrest all while raising their three children. Once rumors and videos began surfacing of T.I.’s infidelity, the world watched as one of our favorite couples began to crumble.

Tiny was recently gearing up for her birthday celebration at GoldRoom Club in Atlanta when T.I. joined her Instagram Live to wish her a Happy Birthday.

“Look at where you at, you got ya own shh man…on ya own….doing your own thing man, collecting your own bag….I can’t pull you where I’m at all the time, I gotta let you do your thing man… but Happy Birthday!”
