Jay Z’s latest signing to Roc Nation sports could be in the football world. The rumor mill is churning with talk around the Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh joining Hov’s squad. Suh is currently looking for a new agent and has been in talks with Jay in the past few months. Outlets like ESPN have reported on the possible signing but no one has any concrete details yet. In the past, Jay donned Suh’s jersey during past concerts and the NFL baller has been spotted attending numerous Jay shows. It could just be wishful thinking, but we know Shawn is always scouting new talent. The defsensive tackle is expected to sign a new contract with the Lions this year.

World traveler and chef Anthony Bourdain has been one of my favorite TV stars of the last few years. His shows like No Reservations on the Travel channel and current hit Parts Unknown on CNN are usually on at my house when I turn on the TV. However, it appears that his next venture is one that will surely shake up New York City. According to NY Eater:

From Anthony Bourdain:

I am indeed working on this project—carefully assembling a dream list of chefs, operators, street food and hawker legends from around the world—in hopes of bringing them together in one New York City space. As the greatest city in the world, I’ve long felt that we should have the kind of delicious, diverse food centers that Singapore ( for instance) enjoys. And, in fact, it is my hope that an important component of this project will be representatives of Straits hawker masters. My likes are pretty well known: dai pai dong in Hong Kong, Boqueria in Spain, hawker centers in Singapore, street tostadas in Ensenada. To the extent that I can help bring those things home to New York, along with a truly interesting collection of home grown innovators, I will be very, very pleased. If nothing else, I hope to soon be able to enjoy a really good Chicken Rice in NYC.

Authorities in the small Southern Chinese village known for producing the drug, reportedly seized 3 tons of meth in total. They also seized nine guns, ammunition, a homemade bomb and knives. Three officers were reportedly injured in the bust, including two who were shot. The details are still pouring in but reports suggest numerous dirty cops and officials were involved in the crime.

You’re Doing It Wrong: Brooklyn “Rapper” Instagrams Illegal Gun Ring


A Bronx Tale has been cited in countless rap songs from everyone from Jay Z to Scarface. The classic Mob story about a young kid who just wanted to do right by the guys in his neighborhood is a classic. Unfortnutaly, one of the film’s main characters actor Lillo Brancato found himself in some serious trouble in 2003. The young man was involved in a robbery where an off duty police officer was killed and was subsequently sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The now 37-year old sent out a Tweet on Monday to confirm his release: “my last full day in prison.” He continued: “Thank you for your love and support. I love you all!” Brancato also starred in The Sopranos for a season and string of other films.

Initially, he was to be freed in July after serving eight years of a 10-year sentence. But he is getting out early after agreeing to an unusual deal with the parole board in which he will serve five years’ parole with a 10 p.m. curfew. Had he waited until July, he would not have faced parole.
