Linking up with DOOM and Phonte, PRhyme have cooked up a new track entitled “Highs and Lows.” The release of “Highs and Lows” arrives in support of the new deluxe edition of PRhyme’s self-titled debut album, which is set to drop on December 11.

For months, rumors have swirled that a Red / White Air Jordan XI would be releasing this holiday season, possibly even on December 23rd and alongside an Air Jordan XX9 in a 2-shoe pack similar to last year’s “Ultimate Gift of Flight Pack.”
First seen as a PE made for Jordan signature athlete Carmelo Anthony, the alleged release has resurfaced several times in recent months, mostly as a hue-contrasted photoshop image of the “Pantone” XI that released last December. It’s an easy flip to switch the hues from carolina to red.
With lots of uncertainty surrounding the launch, I’ve confirmed with multiple sources at Nike that rumors of the Red / White XI releasing are false.
The shoe won’t be releasing this December, on its own or as part of a “2PK” launch.
“Not coming out period,” confirms a source.
We’ll keep you posted if more information becomes available, but at this time, the shoe simply isn’t releasing.
After joining Twitter back in May, President Obama has officially created a Facebook account. “I finally got my very own page,” Obama said in his first post. “I hope you’ll think of this as a place where we can have real conversations about the most important issues facing our country – a place where you can hear directly from me, and share your own thoughts and stories. (You can expect some just-for-fun stuff, too.)”
Different from a campaign page or the staff-run White House page, Obama’s new account is supposed to be more personal, a place where the POTUS can talk directly to the people. In the “About” section of his page, Obama says he’s a “Dad, husband, and 44th President of the United States.”
The President’s first post also included a video. “I’m kicking it off by inviting you to take a walk with me in my backyard – something I try to do at the end of the day before I head in for dinner.”
In a recent interview with Time, rapper Rick Ross suggested that he’s been maintaining a low-key career ghostwriting tracks for other hip-hop heavyweights.
“I had a lot more things I wanted to address [on Black Dollar]. That’s what I did on this LP. I spoke on different things. One of them goes by the name of ‘Ghostwriter.’ I finally wrote a record telling the way it feels for me to be a ghostwriter, and not only a ghostwriter, but one of the biggest in the rap game. Because of my own personal success I’ve always been able to keep that in the shadows. On this record, I just felt it was so current. It was needed.”
Ross also stressed that, for some rappers, relying on someone else to pen their rhymes matters more than others, saying, “If you’re a battle rapper on the block, the emcee battle challenger, not writing your rhymes could really hurt you. When you’re an artist where maybe the focus is really the talent and the different things you bring to the game, I believe it’s more understandable.”
Read the full interview over at Time and listen to Rick’s remix of Drake and Future’s “Where Ya At” below. Stay tuned for the rapper’s eighth studio album, Black Market, when it hits stores on December 4.
To be honest who can stop this guy. This makes me think how good is he?
Largely regarded as “the NBA’s best player” at the moment Stephen Curry was recently featured in GQ, which seemed to agree with the statement when it bestowed upon him the same title. In the images accompanying the feature, the current league MVP previews two new colorways ofUnder Armour sneakers. As expected, one of the pairs is his signature Under Armour Curry 2, rendered with a new purple palette. The other model is a rework of the ClutchFit Drive 2 silhouette in a red and green colorway. Although details regarding a release date for the sneakers was not mentioned in the article, the interview did explore Curry’s basketball achievements as well as discuss how Nike chose not to match Under Armour’s contract offer in 2013. You can head over to GQ to read the full feature.
After shattering The Weeknd’s Spotify record last week, Justin Bieber continues his victory streak with a new Billboard record for the most simultaneous hits on the Hot 100 chart. With a staggering 17 songs currently on the list, this means that the Biebs has broken the previous record of 14 concurrent tracks set by The Beatles and Drake. Not only that, but three of those 17 hits are currently sitting in the top five, a coup only accomplished by 50 Cent and The Beatles in the past.
Pharrell sat down with NPR‘s Jason King last week for an almost two-hour-long Q&A at Manhattan’s Town Hall.

BLOCKS is the world’s first modular smartwatch. The watchface, or Core as we like to call it, is fully functional on its own, and has all the features you would expect from a smartwatch. But it’s the strap that is the most amazing thing about BLOCKS. It is made of several links, or Modules, each of which have their own functions. You can choose the Modules you want and connect them together to build a smartwatch unique to you.
