Did you study the above picture? Take a GOOD look! How do you feel? Is Macklemore really that great? No shade, but I see a few names listed that were more deserving. There has always been controversy surrounding urban music and the Grammy’s. Last year Macklemore won “Best Rap Album” over Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city album. Snoop Dogg took to Instagram to post the above picture with the caption “F*ck the Grammys. We need a Hip Hop show for real n*ggaz and real MCs.” Obviously Snoop was showing his disapproval for the Grammy’s choices on Rap. Is Snoop reaching or is he just telling it like it is?
Does Missy Elliot have a comeback album in the works? She might! After her surprise appearance at the Super Bowl halftime show, Missy decided to start cooking up in the studio with Timbaland.

Are you excited to hear new music from Missy Elliot?!
Lebron James has other talents to show off apparently.

Forbes and it’s annual ranking has unveiled the top sports brands. For the third year straight Nike sits at the top and is worth about $19 billion. That $19 billion is a $2 billion dollar increase from 2013, and $2.5 billion more than ESPN. The question is who is responsible for keeping Nike on it’s throne? That answer is LeBron James. Sources say for the first time since 2007 someone other than Tiger Woods is at the top , and LeBron’s brand is worth about $37 million and brought in $53 million OFF the court last year alone from endorsements with McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Upper Deck, and Nike. The LeBron 12 was supposed to be released in October but due to cosmetic issues the shoe will be released sooner than later.
Twitter is now suing the Department of Justice and FBI for the right to release information on the government’s surveillance of it’s users. The goal for the lawsuit is to achieve more flexibility regarding what the company can say about the government requesting personal information of Twitter users. Twitter Inc. claims their First Amendment rights are violated by being prohibited to share the number of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court orders the receive to give out personal information for national security reasons. Back in April Twitter sent their Transparency Report to the FBI but the Department of Justice rejected the report because disclosing information on national security letters is prohibited by federal law.
A woman out of Georgia has been accused of filing a fake Georgia state tax return. Brigitte Jackson filed a return claiming she was owed over $94 million dollars. LOL! She never got her check and contacted the state revenue about the delay. After some calls were made agents cut her a check and told her to go to a bank inside of a supermarket to cash it. The entire tax sting was caught on tape. Jackson’s cousin Darrius White also allegedly reported $99 million in income and has been charged. Did they really think they would get away with this???
