ESPN's acclaimed series of documentaries 30 for 30 profiles the tragic death of Chicago high school basketball phenom Benji Wilson who was shot and killed on the eve of his senior basketball season. Benji was 17 in 1984 when his promising young life was cut short.
Wilson was LeBron James and Kobe Bryant before the NBA changed its rule allowing high school prep stars to enter the NBA draft. Chicago natives Rev. Jesse Jackson, R.Kelly and rapper Common remember the Benji the world never got the chance to know. 'Benji' was directed by Coodie and Chike.
Rappers T.I. and Kendrick Lamar were special guests on BET's 106 & Park today. Watch the video after the break.
In an interview in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Tip "T.I." Harris said, "I've learned that one thing about my life that is certain is trouble.
He continued: "Be that as it may, I shall embrace that fact and not evade it. We all have faults. Before I let you stand on your high horse and point a finger back down at me, I'm going to give you a big, stiff 'Fuck you.'"
The aptly titled Trouble Man album is scheduled for release on Dec. 18.
So singers are beefing now? R. Kelly just released a diss song in which he talks greasy about Ne-Yo who he booted off his tour. Thanks to my girl Fresh over at Crunktastical.net for the link to the diss song.
R. Kelly wrote a song on Whitney Houston's new album. This is the song that R&B diva Monica told me she heard and loved. I wish they would release Whitney's album or at least give us a release date to ease our suffering. At least we know when Mariah comes out. Help is on the way!
