Soon-to-be Hall of Famer Allen Iverson recently chopped it up with his old friend and co-star of those classic Reebok commercials, Jadakiss, during the Mitchell & Ness Block Party in Philly. The pair reminisced on their Reebok days and bringing hip-hop culture to the NBA. But more importantly, Kiss, who named his latest album Top 5 Dead or Alive, asked A.I. the all-important question when it comes to hoops and hip-hop: who’s in your top five?

frank ocean stairs

Frank Ocean’s mysterious, round-the-clock livestream was only the beginning of his long-awaited comeback, but for a moment there, it looked like he might have been trolling us. Here was a man, considered one of the most talented musicians alive, building a wooden staircase while seemingly ignoring the entire world’s cries for a new album.

Gucci Mane’s Homecoming Concert at the Fox Theater in Atlanta opened with his long-time producer Zaytoven, in red suede, at a white grand piano…tickling the ivories like some kind of Trap Bobby Short while Gucci rapped for the first time in years to sold-out stands filled with his most devoted.

The light melodies and the heavy rhymes were a perfect mismatch…and a reflection of Zay himself.
While in New York City to promote his new book for aspiring producers, “From A To Zay,” the 36-year-old piano-playing, church-going, family man who, according to Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin’, is the “godfather” of the trap sound, joined me on my new TuneIn streaming radio show to talk about what it’s like to be the most sober man in the room…

How he ended one of Gucci Mane’s saddest beefs with the man who started it all with him
What he has planned with his ‘Beast Mode’ partner, Future…
The difference between him and some of Atlanta’s other production stars…and more.
Zaytoven also gave me one of the most illuminating explanations of why trap music is teflon from rap elite criticism. It was a really interesting conversation and I hope you guys enjoy it.

We’re playing highlights from the Zaytoven x Miss Info interview starting at 1pm EST on my streaming show on TuneIn’s new Hip Hop Beat station…click here to listen.

Chance The Rapper really has been everywhere lately. After performing at the ESPYs and appearing in Nike’s Olympics campaign, the Chicago MC made his debut on ABC’s Good Morning America this morning. Joined by Peter Cottontale and Francis and the Lights, Chance delivered a gorgeous live rendition of his Coloring Book mixtape cut “Summer Friends.”

He also sat down for an interview with Robin Roberts, speaking on his Muhammad Ali tribute, being on Obama’s Summer playlist and his relationship with God. “People are afraid to speak about God to a certain extent, and I think if you’re not free to speak about God, then you’re not free,” he said.

seth rogen ricky williams weed

Bill Simmons put a herbal twist on his usual “speed round” segment during last night’s episode of Any Given Wednesday as he quizzed funny man Seth Rogen and former NFL pro Ricky Williams on their mutual love for Mary Jane. During the quickfire “weed round,” Rogen and Williams talked about their favorite methods of smoking, favorite stoner movies, favorite weed songs and, well, pretty much all their favorite things about cheeba.

Of course, both guys had a few crazy weed stories up their sleeve, like the time Ricky got outsmoked by Willie Nelson. Shit, who wouldn’t?!
