Lil Wayne Responds To Luke

Veteran Miami rappers Trick Daddy and Luther "Luke" Campbell have both voiced their criticisms of hip-hop superstar Lil Wayne's recent disrespectful rant aimed at the Miami Heat. In an interview with 99 Jamz, Wayne was asked how he felt about Luke's opinion, in particular, and the YMCMB star was defiant.
“I can't change nobody's personal opinion. I can't change nobody's personal view,” said Wayne. “I can just keep doing what I do and keep putting food on the table for my family and that's what I'm going to do no matter what."
“I haven't [read Luke's letter], but I already know how he feels about me,” continued Wayne. “I've never met him actually. ...Ever since I got here, there were billboards and signs saying, ‘Lil Wayne, Go Back Home,’ you know what I mean? And I didn't do anything.”
“This is Miami, I can't move,” Wayne added. “I got the best skate weather, ever, down here. ... Like I said, the main thing I really want to get out there is that I do apologize for the misunderstanding to the city of Miami. I love everyone here, it's just I'm passionate about sports and I felt very disrespected, that's all. I felt very, very disrespected.”

Obama Daughters Like Frank Ocean

The Obamas are pretty cool with the music elite. After all, Beyonce and Jay-Z have hosted fundraisers and attended inaugurations, Bruce Springsteen comes around to kick it every now and then--they're pretty cool with the elder statesmen of the game. But what about the kids? The First Lady revealed during an appearance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" that her kids are fans of Frank Ocean--and other music that their parents may not like.
"They don't really listen to us," Michelle Obama said. "They try to hip us to stuff, you know, I learned about Elle Varner because of Malia and they like Frank Ocean, we are Beyoncé devotes. But there's some music that they'll tell us, 'I think the music is too rough for you.' I'm like, 'Really?' ... They don't allow us to just listen to anything. They're looking out for our well-being."

Lakers owner Jerry Buss passed away at 80

Jerry Buss, the longtime owner of the Lakers whose penchant for showmanship helped turn the game of basketball into “Showtime” and who led the team to 10 NBA championships, died Monday. He was 80.
A self-made millionaire who built his fortune in real estate, Buss bought the Lakers in 1979. He charted his successful course with marquee players Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal, Hall of Fame coaches Pat Riley and Phil Jackson, celebrities sitting courtside and Laker Girls dancing during timeouts.
"I really tried to create a Laker image, a distinct identity," Buss said. "I mean, the Lakers are pretty damn Hollywood."
It was a remarkable winning streak for a man who dug his way out of a hardscrabble youth.
A Depression-era baby, Jerry Hatten Buss was born Jan. 27, 1933, in Salt Lake City. His parents divorced when he was an infant.
His mother struggled to make ends meet as a waitress in tiny Evanston, Wyo., and Buss remembered standing in food lines in the bitter cold.
Later, Buss earned a science scholarship to the University of Wyoming. At 19 he married a coed named JoAnn Mueller, and they would eventually have four children: John, Jim, Jeanie and Janie.
By the mid-1950s, the couple had moved to Southern California, where Buss earned a doctorate in chemistry at USC. He worked briefly in the aerospace industry, and in the late 1950s, he and a colleague, Frank Mariani, tried their hand at real estate.
They scraped together a few thousand dollars to buy a 14-unit apartment house in West Los Angeles and, to save money, did all the repairs themselves. Their real estate company kept growing as they invested in residential properties, hotels and office buildings.
In 1979, Buss and his partners bought the Lakers (along with the Forum in Inglewood), the NHL’s Kings and a 13,000-acre ranch in Kern County for $67 million from Jack Kent Cooke.
At the time, the NBA had fallen by the wayside and several teams stood on the brink of bankruptcy.
But to Buss, the Lakers looked like a gem in the coal bin. They had a dominant center in Abdul-Jabbar, and the team picked the effervescent Johnson out of Michigan State in the 1979 NBA draft.
Success came quickly. With former Lakers star Jerry West maturing into one of the most gifted general managers in the league, the team won an NBA championship in Buss’ first season. Johnson, Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Cooper guided the Lakers to five titles.
The Lakers' next title era came with O’Neal; the precocious Bryant, whom they traded for after he was drafted out of high school; and Jackson as coach. The Lakers won three consecutive championships from 2000 through 2002.
The team then flamed out in the 2004 NBA Finals against the Detroit Pistons and traded O’Neal to the Miami Heat. At the same time, Jackson walked away.
After a few more disappointing seasons, Bryant demanded a trade, but Buss stood firm.
The Lakers, with Jackson back as coach and with Pau Gasol added to the team, defeated Orlando for the 2008-09 title. The following season, they beat Boston for another championship. It was their 10th and final title under Buss.
"Jerry Buss helped set the league on the course it is on today," NBA Commissioner David Stern said. "Remember, he showed us it was about 'Showtime,' the notion that an arena can become the focal point for not just basketball, but entertainment. He made it the place to see and be seen."
Former Times staff writer Mark Heisler contributed to this report.

Rihanna – Stay Ft. Mikky Ekko (Official Video)

New EP: J.Cole Truly Yours

Jermaine has a stash of recordings. Today, he decides to give out five tracks that will not make the final cut for his upcoming album, Born Sinner. Says Cole:
It’s time. I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album. And I have. Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space) .
Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as fuck for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul.. The wait is over.
Truly Yours,
Born Sinner
PS- 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
1. Can I Holla At Ya
2. Crunch Time
3. Rise Above
4. Tears For ODB
5. Stay

Tommy Hilfiger / Fall 2013 RTW

Red, white, and blue still ring true forTommy Hilfiger. But this time around, it’s a “deeper red, a deeper navy, and off-white,” said the designer backstage before his show. The reason? He had looked to the U.K. and its heritage dressing for fall inspiration—specifically the Savile Row shop of menswear revolutionary Tommy Nutter, tailor to sixties and seventies rock stars (see Mick Jagger, the Beatles). “He was irreverent and he mixed patterns,” Hilfiger said. “Which I love.”  

So that explains the playful, but not wacky, combination of blown-up pinstripes, argyle printed over houndstooth (quite nicely on a white blouse), and Prince of Wales plaid set amidst a backdrop of trompe l’oeil double-story library walls to the sounds of the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds.

And the silhouettes, those are pure collegiate prep; Hilfiger’s other inspiration was the Ivy League, with some Oxford thrown in for good measure. And it starts with freshman year–miniskirts, peacoats, double-breasted blazers, topped off with university scarves and fedoras and knit hats (by Albertus Swanepoel). It’s what you might imagine Serena Frome, the smart and pretty heroine of Ian McEwan’s latest novel, Sweet Tooth, wearing at Cambridge before she joins MI5 and becomes a spy.  

But things get a little more sophisticated from there. Hilfiger goes to pinstripe territory with a slim-cut suit, laser-cut leather-and-suede dresses, and a head-to-toe navy houndstooth look of overcoat, turtleneck, and trousers. And the most grown-up of all are the last three looks Hilfiger showed, all-ivory jackets, dresses, and trousers that would make any coed or graduate, British or American, Princeton or public school girl very happy.
