KunLé of Freshmen on Varsity recently dropped the visuals to his track Monday that you are sure to enjoy. Freshmen on Varsity have been making a name for themselves in the DMV area with songs that you may have heard such as Fly with the Wind & Tonight. Well if you haven’t , this video will surely be the one to do so.

The video finds KunLé enjoying the day with his lady friend and getting high, will presume it was Monday.

We’ve passed All-Star weekend, got through a crazy NBA trade deadline and have about 20 games remaining in the regular season. So it seems only right, that now would be fitting time to bring you another addition of “Five Things We’ve Learned About the NBA”.

 1. Russell Westbrook is playing out of his mind. I know I know, everyone has great stretches throughout an NBA season. Why is Westbrook any different? Well, for starters, Westbrook has played in only 48 of his teams 63 games. Yet, he leads the team in points per game, assists per game and steals per game. While being second in rebounds, did I mention he’s a 6’3 point guard? What is really impressive about what Westbrook is doing however, is the historic nature of his pursuits. Westbrook averaged 30 ppg 9 rpg and 10 apg for Thunder as they finished February with a 9-3 record. Oh, and he also recorded four triple doubles in the month. If this isn’t the best basketball stretch I’ve ever seen, it sure ranks up there.

We all knew Big Sean could rap & write, right? Ye’ knew he was marketable & Adidas knew he was sponsor worthy. Yet, he was still missing something. Along comes DARK SKY PARADISE & it becomes clear.

Sean has been prepping the game for #SeanSeason since Travis Scott’s Don’t Play. He had a a really great roll-out up until the point Drake sporadically dropped a 17-track project.  He dropped a 4-song pack last Sept. which included the No. 1 record ‘IDFWU‘ as well as the hit single Paradise (intro for Mike Will Made It’s RANSOM), dropped a record with Drake & Kanye, while finding a new S.O. (significant other aka new girlfriend) & signed to new management.

When Drake dropped If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, I felt bad for Sean, at first I felt like nobody would care as much, or even pay attention to his soon to drop album.  Boy was I wrong, the album leaked & I feel it helped more than it hindered.  I had even went as far as to say he had made a great album, and that I was going to support this (buy albums people).  I was not expecting such a great collection from Sean, but I also was not keeping up with Sean Season.

Fellow-writer & head contributor, Sosa, brought the idea to me when he texted me “How Big Sean Sparked Yeezy Season” the text made me think, Big Sean didn’t start Yeezy season, but indeed he sparked it.  At least for me personally because “Only One” is not the Kanye I’m here for.  It also made me think about how Kanye is subtly using Sean Season to spark his own season, like Big Sean used Travis Scott’s season to spark his own.

Remaining relevant throughout Drake’s perfectly horrid timing, Kanye’s controversy via Grammy’s & NYFW, all while delivering a great album after a bumpy sophomore performance should be honorable in every book, so on that note let’s give Big Sean a round of applause.  Oh and if you haven’t, listen to the album. Trust me.

 

The New Year is upon us, and the NBA season is kicking into high gear. With a majority of teams already halfway through their schedule its time to look towards the end of the season and what teams will be making the most noise come May and June.

1. Golden State Warriors should be the favorites to win it all, RIGHT NOW.  

At 34-6 the Warriors have the best record in the NBA, and have also been playing the best basketball according to the eye test. It’s no surprise that the Warriors rank first in many offensive categories, including – points, assists, field goals and 3-point field goals. What may come as a surprise however is how good the team has been defensively. The Warriors are top ten in seven of eight defensive team categories. With the team’s deep bench and MVP favorite Steph Curry the Warriors have all the makings of an NBA champion contender. Injuries or a potential playoff match up with Oklahoma City seem to be the only things standing in the teams way. But we are a ways from May, and a lot of basketball is left to be played, but at the moment, Golden State is the team to beat.

2. The Atlanta Hawks are the best team in the Eastern Conference and there’s little argument. 

Through 43 games no one could have predicted the Atlanta Hawks would have the best record in the Eastern Conference, let alone be six games ahead of the second place team. Yet, that’s exactly what the Hawks have done. Atlanta has shown that a superstar player isn’t always necessary when team basketball is the focal point. The Hawks are averaging an impressive 103.2 ppg (6th) on 26 apg (2nd), but what has been most impressive is the team’s defense. The Hawks are No. 1 in points allowed at 96.1 ppg. Currently on a 14 game winning streak, the Hawks are proving that they are the real deal. If you think it’s just the case of them beating up on bad teams, Atlanta boast a 10-2 record against Western Conference opponents.

3. Andrew Wiggins is everything advertised and then some.  Read More
