Today is Jay Z‘s 44th birthday and he and wife Beyonce have decided to go on a 22 day vegan challenge because as he says “psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way.” But he also decided to rank his albums from greatest to least, which album do you think took the top spot?
It’s about damn time, after four full seasons and one currently airing the only television singing competition show that I watch, The Voice, might have finally gotten it figured out. One Republic frontman and songwriter Ryan Tedder has joined the show as a Producer/Songwriter.
The Brooklyn Nets are currently tied with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the fourth worst record (4-11) overall in the NBA, which is definitely not what was expected when they made their huge offseason moves including; trading for Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett as well as hiring Jason Kidd (who had never coached a game in his life) as their head coach. Well Kidd has been fined $50,000 by the NBA for spilling a drink on the court during the teams 99-94 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.
“Hold up I ain’t tryin’ to stunt man, but the Yeezy’s jumped over the jumpman’s,” Kanye West, who usually doesn’t do many interviews, has been making his rounds doing radio interviews while out on his Yeezus tour. Yesterday he made a stop at New York’s Hot 97′s The Angie Martinez Show, and confirmed that he signed a new deal with Adidas.
There have been many times in the past where a TV show will use an older song which winds up popping back up on Billboard’s Hot 100. It happened with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing,” after the series finale of The Sopranos. With Billboard now allowing YouTube videos to effect the Hot 100, viral videos are now doing the same.
Last night the Yeezus tour made a stop in Brooklyn at the Barclay’s Center, and A Tribe Called Quest, who are on select dates on the tour performed their classic 1992 smash “Scenario.” The single featured Leaders of the New School (which a young Busta Rhymes was a part of), well Busta made a cameo to perform the song with Tribe.
This one here is random, funny, and more random all in one, comedian Kyle Ayers was hanging out on the roof of his Brooklyn apartment on Saturday night when a couple decided to join him and proceed breakup, so he decided to take to his Twitter page and live tweet the break up.

There are many theories as to why the Orlando Magic decided to not play team captain Jameer Nelson for the last 17:23 of a winnable home against the Dallas Mavericks this past Saturday at the Amway Center.
Some say that it’s part of the team “tanking,” to get better position in next years stacked draft, others say that the team wants to get rookie guard Victor Oladipo more minutes in key moments of close games. One thing is for sure, Nelson wanted to be on the floor.
