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. The NBA’s first fashion show All Star Style will be produced by James’ Springhill Production Company and is set to air during All-Star Weekend on Valentines’s Day at 6:30pm EST on TNT.

Well folks the NBA’s MVP Kevin Durant is going to be out for about two months with a “Jones fracture’ and because it is a stress injury it has happened over time. Over the last five seasons Durant has only missed six games. The injury is the most common surgical procedure on NBA players. The injury is said to be something Durant could play through but the right move would be to stay off the court until healed.
Honey Snoop Dogg got on Instagram and shaded Iggy Azalea! Recently Iggy Iggs was spotted out and about without makeup. Snoop posted the above picture on his Instagram account. Iggy responded by saying she is disappointed in Snoop for being and ass when he actually has been nice to her before and her body guard stopped a fire truck that saved his friends life in Canada. Iggy then deleted the tweets. Snoop heard about Iggy’s response, posted a picture of a blog headline about their “beef” and simply said “This is news to me. I wish a bitch would !! Hahahahahahahahah.” Seems like Snoop feels no remorse and I’m sure Iggy is not ready for that hand and manicure set trip. Why so serious? OKAY?!
