Video: Wale “Bad Girls Club” f/ J. Cole

They’re like the black version of Two and a Half Men. Rick Ross would play the little fat kid, who’s not really little anymore. Or fat.

Video: J. Cole “Lost Ones”

“With just a Dollar and a Dream, this video was shot in 2008 before I even had a record deal. 3 years later, watching it still gives me the same emotions. This is dedicated to the Lost Ones.” – Jermaine Cole

What if the rap game were the NBA?

Recently I was thinking about how NBA players and the rap game go hand-in-hand. Lots of players are friends with rappers and some players even try their darn hardest to earn respect in the rap game. This got me wondering which NBA players are comparable to current rappers in today’s modern era. Here are my thoughts on who is who:

Jay-Z is Kobe Bryant

This has to be the easiest analogy one could make about the rap game/NBA. Both are living legends who are still active in their respective industries. Jay-Z and Kobe are both “winners”, as Jay has 11 “rings” (platinum albums) while Kobe has five NBA Championship rings. Oh, both are married to bangin’ chicks as well.

Kanye West is Lebron James

This one might come under fire by hip-hop and Ye fans, but the similarities are striking. It’s no lie when you say that both are disliked people by the general public. Kanye had his moment(s), Lebron has had his. However, both have proven their worth in their industries and are extremely important to both of their games. Both men have single-handedly altered each of their games in someway both for the positive and negative. It’s also important to think of both as “all-around players”. Lebron can do just about everything on both ends of the court, while Kanye can produce, rap, write, and (try to) sing.

Video: Bei Maejor “Trouble” f/ J. Cole

I’ve always seen “Bei Maejor” floating around hip hop blogs, but this is the first time I ever heard him. Decent song for this up and coming R&B artist featuring Mr. Cole World.
