A rapper you should check out, is, Money Bag Yo. He's great at rapping in melodies, and coming up with swift flows, on up-tempo trap beats. He's very talented at writing punchlines, personally, I find his bars humorous. Some may get lost in the beat, and over look his double entendres." Rose gold pretty penny, my momma proud like penny" . Money Bag Yo, is as witty as a ,Old Gucci Mane. You can tell he's a older, more, experienced rapper. His rhyme scheme, comes with different variations, which makes his flow, not repetitive and pointless. If you're looking for a new rapper,who writes about his struggles, makes club bangers and a occasional song for/about the ladies. @moneybaggyo is the guy you should check out. His mixtape "2 heartless " is out today. Some notable songs(without features) you should bump are, " Walker Holmes , Break the internet, Moneybagg Myers ( which is funny because, fans use to say he looks like Michael Myers) The tape features the likes of, Yo Gotti, Blockboy Jb, Quavo and Lil Baby

Big day in Boston, "The Truth", gets his jersey retired. Cavs get to try out their new roster, (not to mention), Kyrie gets another shot at beating the Cavs . In my opinion, this is a glimpse of the Eastern conference finals, pay close attention to this game. #speaksoles

A$ap mob, is constantly moving the culture forward. The moment a$ap mob hit the scene, I knew they we're going to be a influential force in fashion. They would name drop notorious street fashion, and high end designer brands, that most people weren't familiar with at the time. Their following was so strong, people started dressing like them. High end fashion was now being incorpated with street fashion, because it was the "cozy" thing to do. Their influence led to many collaborations, with high powered companies such as Nike, Adidas, Raf Simmions, Jeremy Scott ect. Younger artist such as Playboi Carti &Lil Uzi started embracing the high end fashion lifestyle in their music also. They've took a lot of younger artist such as Smooky Margielaa,under their wings and gave them exposure on their infamous, "Cozy Tapes". With the mob being such a succesful group, it's given artist the opportunity to widen their fanbase(even more). In my opinion, they are molding the new wave of rap by going out and finding new talent to introduce. You've seen artists like Drake and Kanye become great at that aspect of music. The mob is a big group and still expanding, so finding new artists shouldn't be a problem.

Who is ready for "Glock Bond"? The Paper Route Empire rapper, will be dropping his second mixtape February 2nd. His flashy, arrogant rap style, is perfect for any 808. He has the ability to create a catchy hook, with a nice flowing melody. Not to mention he has playful wordplay in his verses. He's a younger artists, which he displays in his bars, by referencing things only 90's baby can relate to. If you're looking for some uptempo trap music, I advise you to check out his previous mixtape, "Glock season". @keyglock

If you think real rap is dead, you haven't heard Dave East. His gritty, story telling rap, allows you to see life from his point of view. The moment you listen to him, you can hear the pain in his voice, he has no fear about putting his past in his raps.Dave East, also has the ability to go outside of his comfot zone, by making vibes people can listen to in the club or at a kickback. Not to mention he's not afraid to make a joint for the ladies, his versatility on mixtapes/albums makes him open to any audience. If you're into witty, well thought of rhymes check out ," paranoia 2 " @daveeast

Every week, I will be posting a artist, or album that I believe is hot.(The album/artist will either be mainstream,or underground).This week, my artist that I suggest everyone to check out is, Blockboy Jb. He has a high energy on his songs, with a swift and bouncy flow. His voice on a trap beat, can get the crowd "jumping" . A track that I recommend is, "Shoot" . It's his most prolific song off his " WHO AM I 3" and it will definitely get the club going, "shoot" has that bounce every dj looks for, out of a song. If you like to workout and get turnt to trap songs,or you need something to play for your friends during the "pre-game", I'd advise you to go check his music out. @blocboy_jb

Nike,might have finally assembled a shoe that can compete with the Adidas boost. The new Nike running shoe is called, "Nike epic react flyknit". The outsole consist of nothing but foam, that has a "react" technology.The React technology was used last year on the " Nike React Hyperdunk". Which is a basketball shoe. It is said that, Nike is using proprietary algorithms, to create a unique surface, on the foam for each shoe size. Meaning (in laymans) the foam,in the new React Flyknits are custom made for each size, and each size will be designed to maximize performance. The retail is set at $150, as new colorways start to emerge, prepare to see this shoe often, as the weather starts to break.

The Cavalier's are sitting at the 26th spot for points allowed (109.6) . Even with their defensive woes, the Cavaliers managed to only lose by 10 to GS this month(warriors). Not to mention they held the lead,up until the 4th quarter, where GS outscored them 25- 17 in the fourth quarter . After a nightmare game against Okc, the Cavs lost by 24 points, allowing 148 points in total. As bad as that score sounds, the Cavs only lose this game(that bad), due to the absence of Kevin Love, who only played 3 minutes.
After the game, the Cavs held a meeting, debating if Kevin's illnes during the Okc game,was legitimate. Since the situation, the players just have not been on the same page with each other. If the Cavs are going to compete for a championship, for one they have to start trusting each other. The Cavs also need to invest in a paint protector, someone who can do the dirty work around the rim, be a pest on defense and finish simple buckets around the rim. Given the uncertainty of LeBron's future, the Cavs will struggle to land a big name, such as Deandre Jordan or Demarcus Cousins,without given up the Brooklyn pick. Teams will use the pick as leverage against the Cavs, so it's up to Cleveland to decide, if they should compete for the finals this year and land a big name, or worry about the future, and hold onto the pick. The Cavs sit at the 3rd spot in the Eastern conference.With Miami only being one game behind, the Cavs are in danger of slipping to the 4th seed. In my opinion, it is now or never. If I'm in the front office, I do not wait until the offseason is here to persuade LeBron to stay. If the Cavs want to remain dominant in the Eastern Conference, and keep LeBron's interest, they need to land a big name in Cleveland, a.s.a.p. (and worry about re-signing later) #speaksoles

The Cavalier's are facing their biggest opponent yet? Themselves, since the start of the season there has been plenty uncertainty on how the season will play out. Isaiah Thomas was expected to miss 3-4 months, which hindered the team significantly, when you consider the departure of Kyrie Irving. Before the season , the Cavs, aquirred D-Rose, who ended up missing a significant amount of games, while "re-evaluating his future " . (Not to mention he started off with minor ankle injuries in the start of the season) Tristan Thompson has missed roughly 20 games due to injury. The lack of chemistry is evident, adapting has been tough for our new edittions, ( Jeff Green, Jae Crowder, Calderon, D-wade) no one knows their role, and the line up has changes every week. It has been a difficult transition for Kevin Love moving to center. It is obvious that, he is better suited as a big that spreads the floor,and uses his permiter game to make defenders play. J.r. isn't the scorer he once was for the offense, and it seem as if he settles for a lot of shots, instead of creating (shots). We lack a player on the bench,that can take control of the game (offensively). Which results in Ty Lue running, LeBron into the ground, just so that they can maintain the lead. LeBron's fatigue, has caused him to disappear late in the game. The king starts off, Red hot and very efficient, but as the game plays on, he becomes passive
