KU Misses Final Four again

I know some people are not gonna read this just because of the title of this blog but it's real. Kansas once again misses out on the Final Four as a #1 seed but this one has to hurt more than the others just because of where they lost it at. Playing in Kansas City at Sprint Center which is really a second home for KU plus watching them demolish Purdue in the second half made everybody believe that KU was not only going to the Final Four but probably win it all. Instead, former Kansas State coach Dana Altman lead the Oregon Ducks to their first Final Four since they won the first one back in 1939! It's not like Oregon was lucky in winning as they won by double digits and their defense was up to par, or the shooting was awful for KU depends on what glasses you look thru. I'm sure KU will reload for next year but I wonder when KU fans will start wondering why Bill Self hasn't done more with the talent he's brought in Lawrence besides winning Big 12 titles. Maybe it starts now? We'll see. Read more about KU here: Read more...

Empire is back tonight....in case you missed it!

Doesn't it seem like forever when Empire was on? I forgot what actually happened in the fall season until I remembered Andre planning a coup against his father with Shyne! And what is exactly going on with Cookie and Lucious? The real question is: does the country miss the drama that came with Empire? It seems like some of the buzz is starting to fade away but let's see what happens tonight in the spring premiere and see what people are saying. Check out more on the show here: Read more...

Rick Ross talking Birdman, Donald Trump and more with Billboard

Yesterday we talked about Drake dropping his playlist More Life this past weekend. Another album that dropped was Rick Ross' Rather You Than Me and it has the streets buzzing as much as More Life. Some even think it's his best work to date. Not sure about that yet but I haven't gave it a listen since I was caught up in the Drake wave. I'll get to it! Speaking of getting to it, Ross had a lot to talk about on this new album and he talked to Billboard about it. Check it out here: Read more...

Drake More Life is finally here

I remembered Drake saying that new music was coming when he came thru KC for the Summer Sixteen tour and we were teased with More Life since at least October it seems right? Well finally Drake decided to drop the "playlist" last Saturday and I've heard a lot of positive reviews on this one from Drake. I've actually checked out most of the project and I like what I've heard thus far. I'm usually that guy that likes to take my time and pay attention in detail to an album and I didn't have that this weekend. I'm glad however that I got to jam it today. So far my favorite tracks on there is 4422, Portland, and Sacrifices. To me it's a mix of Views and Nothing Was The Same so far, but I won't know till I go thru it 3 times!

President Trump not happy with Snoop Dogg video

So Snoop Dogg releases a video called Lavender with Michael Rapaport as Ronald Klump, which pretty much makes fun of President Donald Trump looking like a clown. It also features scenes reenacting police incidents. And the President was not feeling it at all! Check out more on this story here: Read more...
