2-chainz-dina

The universe works in mysterious ways… last night, I just happened to interview Dr. Dina aka the real Nancy Botwin from Weeds, so you would understand my shock after checking my inbox this morning. The first lady of Cannabis in Hollywood is back with 2 Chainz in another episode of the Most Expensive Shit. Dina hooked up some of the most priciest smoking accessories for the inaugural episode of this season.

She shared some incredible stories and insight on the growing legal pot industry with me, so stay tuned for that.

twitter retweet yourself

In today’s “water is wet” news, Twitter continues to tinker with the site we all know and love by announcing yet another batch of updates coming soon to our fingertips. Don’t worry, most of them are great and long overdue (“@” names, media attachments and polls will no longer count towards the 140-character limit — hooray!), but what’s Twitter without a new feature that’s sure to split opinion. Get ready to see a whole lot more narcissism on the timeline, folks.

Retweet and Quote Tweet yourself: We’ll be enabling the Retweet button on your own Tweets, so you can easily Retweet or Quote Tweet yourself when you want to share a new reflection or feel like a really good one went unnoticed.

young greatness moolah remix

Young Greatness (all the good rap names must be taken) has been making noise in recent months with his breakout single “Moolah,” and today it gets even, well, greater. The New Orleans native and Quality Control signee gets the nod from two Southern vets, Lil Wayne and Yo Gotti, on the official remix to his Jazze Pha-produced hit (yep, Jazze Pha still got it, apparently).

The Sixers may be a long way from the NBA Playoffs, let alone the Finals, but thanks to The Roots, Philly is still leaving its stamp on this year’s basketball post-season. Questlove, Black Thought and co. have been tapped to create the official theme song for the upcoming 2016 NBA Finals, and the result is a powerful pre-game anthem called “Champion” that’s as musical as it is motivating. The Legendary Roots Crew are seen performing the song in ABC’s NBA Finals promo, which also features Mike, Kobe, LeBron and more.

After last night’s result, it’s anyone’s guess which two teams will make it to this year’s Finals.
