Adam Lefkoe has a brighter future as a sportscaster than a rapper but you can’t deny the dude is a true hip hop fan. The weekend sports reporter for WHAS, news channel 11 in Louisville, Ky., got all funky fresh during his segment. Lefkoe swagged out his 5-minute seg by squeezing in a plethora of rap lyrics.
DMX isn’t just one of the strangest dudes in rap history. He’s one of the strangest dudes ever. Period. The dog has had his ups and downs both professionally and personally, but it seems like he’s more comfortable in his own skin and truly enjoying life these days.
What guy on the planet wouldn’t want to walk a mile in Drake’s shoes? He’s a platinum selling rapper, he’s smashed out Rihanna and he won a Grammy, just to name a few of his personal accomplishments. When you got it like that, you don’t exactly wake up stressed. Even with extremely high expectations and critics, Drake’s not worried about how his new album will perform.
You’d be hard pressed to find someone in the music industry without at least one tattoo. Even Bieber went from having a finger-nail sized dove on his torso to a whole damn sleeve. Body art is a little more prevalent in hip hop than any other genre, though. When you have as many tats as someone like, say, Lil Wayne, there’s bound to be a few tats that suck. Green-Label.com assembled a list of some of the worst ink-jobs in rap.
The Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, will begin to roll out next month. There are still many of us out there who are unsure of what it is, or how it will affect us. We’ll be providing local residents with all the info you need about Obamacare in the downtown areas of Troy, Albany, Schenectady and Saratoga Springs on October 1st from 11:30am-1pm. Here are some basic bullet points that explain certain aspects of the new system.
Police believe a recent string of shootings are related. The most recent incident occurred around 8pm on Monday night on Fifth Avenue in Troy. Several shots penetrated the building and missed two small children, 6 and 7-years-old, by inches.
Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, Chris Brown and Tamar Braxton got SOOOOOUUUULLLL! All six of them are up for five nominations each at the 2013 Soul Train Awards, taking place in Las Vegas on November 8th. The show will be hosted by big-screen funny man, Anthony Anderson.
A woman named Anna Angel, ironically, needed an angel more than most could ever imagine. She got two. They didn’t fit the typical description of a flowing white robe and bright-shining halos over-head. Instead, she got Drake and Game, who banded together to help the woman through her most heartbreaking experience to date.
DMX is in Los Angeles to make an appearance on Dr. Phil. The episode will be taped today, but it’s unknown when it will air. After landing at LAX yesterday, X was greeted by TMZ reporters who inquired about his recent hotel streaking incident.
I read an interesting article on the Times Union website today that says law enforcement will start cracking down on both drivers and pedestrians to help prevent accidents on Central Avenue. The article exclaims that pedestrians are hit by cars more than once a week on average on Central.
There’s nothing funny about a robbery, but the context in which 2 Chainz got caught when he was a teen is pretty comical. Not just the fact that he got whacked for robbing a FAST FOOD RESTAURANT, but how he got caught.
Two upstarts have found themselves in a beef – Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mill. It all stems from Kendrick’s “Control” verse where he spit about Mill and a slew of other rappers and celebrities. The two are polar opposites, which makes this rivalry pretty entertaining to me. Kendrick is known as mainly a lyricist and “Backpack” rapper while Meek reps the streets. Kendrick went after Mill yet again at a performance in Brooklyn.
It was 12 years ago today that we lost nearly 3,000 people in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. In addition, over 6,000 United States soldiers have given their lives to defend our freedom since the terrorist attacks.

Since he hasn’t done much over the past few years, Ray has been capitalizing on yesterday’s news to remain relevant. He’s seemingly made a career out of putting his ex, Kim Kardashian’s, boyfriends on blast.
Waka Flocka Flame’s album, Flockaveli 2, has been pushed back numerous times. It’s assumed that the project will find its way to shelves and iPods sometime in 2014. Fans of Waka don’t have to wait too long for new bars, though. He’s dropping his From Roaches To Rolexes mixtape at the end of the month.
Several Brick Squad members got into a heated, all-out battle royal on twitter. Artists like Waka Flocka Flame and Wooh Da Kid all ganged up on Gucci Mane, while the Lemonade rapper did the best he could to defend himself. Nobody likes excuses, and Gucci had a ton of them.
When Nate Dogg passed away in March of 2011, Snoop Dogg, got a tattoo in honor of his long-time friend. The tat is a portrait of Nate wearing his patented bandana. The artist who did the work was Mr. Cartoon. The ink session was published yesterday and shows Snoop talking about the first time he met Nate in High School.
Some more Hip Hop HEAT has been added to the line-up of performers at the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend. The show will air live on MTV on Sunday August 25th at 9pm from the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Even though both were in their heyday before my time, I was always more of a “Brady Bunch” guy than “Partridge Family.” This story justifies my position perfectly! I always knew that S.O.B. David Cassidy was a lush!
Although temperatures could get as high as 90 today, it was a brisk 52 when I sat on my porch with a cup of coffee at 6:00am this morning. It was a rude reminder that summer is on its way out and fall is moving in. Yes, it’s not summer, but there are very few things that suck about fall. Ya can’t beat jeans and hoody weather, football season, apple cider donuts and, of course, FALL TV!
Home rooms, homecomings and homework (UGH!) are right around the corner. With another Capital Region school year right around the corner, a local charity organization located out of Schenectady is looking to help with kids-in-need.
