Jay Z to Head Puma Basketball

Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

Add it to the resume.

Multi-platinum rapper, former part owner of the Brooklyn Nets, Roc Nation founder, and now, Jay Z can proudly add president of Puma’s basketball operations to his decorated resume.

A relaunched venture, Puma basketball, under Hov’s direction, will see exciting talent join the team, as they’ve recently signed-up top draft choices, DeAndre Ayton of Arizona, Marvin Bagley III of Duke, and Zhaire Smith of Texas Tech. Jay Z will provide input for creative design, art concepts, and brand direction.

It’s an exciting time for Puma with one of music’s most treasured icons at the helm.


Jay Z & Beyoncé Release Joint Album, ‘Everything is Love’


Thank you, Jay and Bey.

Few individuals are noteworthy enough to warrant a surprise album release. With zero marketing and promotion, or even the subtlest hint of a drop, it’s extremely difficult to garner the interest necessary to receive respectable first-week numbers. Jay Z and Beyoncé belong to this rare company, and a couple of days ago, they released a collaborate surprise album, Everything is Love.

Currently on tour together, the out-of-the-blue release nice complements their joint musical performance, and has elated fans all over the world. A nine-track effort, Everything is Love is unsurprisingly a Tidal exclusive, however, Jay and Bey released a lengthy music video for the album’s energetic track, “APESH*T”.

If you have a Tidal account, consider yourself lucky. For everyone else, satiate your Hov and Queen desires by watching the “APESH*T” video below:

Logic Releases “Contra” Video


Off his recently-released album, Bobby Tarrantino II.

Since divorcing his wife of two years, Logic has been enjoying the fruits of his singlehood. Hitting the gym to play the part of a bachelor, Logic has beefed-up considerably and has been seen with an attractive young blonde. Physically manifesting this liberation, Logic has just released the highly-entertaining, ostentatious–in a great way–music video for his Bobby Tarrantino II hit, “Contra”.

Finally, the week’s coming to a close. Time to stop thinking about spreadsheets, client calls, and corporate monotony, and time to start thinking bout the weekend plans. To properly celebrate the impending temporary freedom, check out the long-awaited release of Nas’ 11th studio album. Yes, NAS ALBUM DONE.

While we still wait for Nasir to hit streaming platforms, you can watch the live stream that occured in High Bridge last night:
