SOURCE SPORTS: New York Knicks Reportedly Considering Trading Down in NBA Draft

You are the New York Knicks front office and you didn’t get the number one pick so you won’t get Zion Williamson. That’s ok, it’s other good players in the draft, right? Sure later in the first round. Reports state the Knicks are looking to trade down in the draft.

A report from ESPN state the Knicks are considering trading the number three pick in the NBA Draft to the Atlanta Hawks and receiving the number 8 and 10 picks in return.

Previously, many saw the Knicks drafting Williamson’s Duke running mate RJ Barrett with the pick, but now are looking to keep their options open.

The Knicks are expected to be one of the busier teams in the NBA offseason. If you ask many NBA analysts, Kevin Durant is already planning on signing with the Knicks and could be possibly be joined by Kyrie Irving or Kemba Walker or anyone the franchise can get their hands on.

So Knicks fans, would you trade your pick or stay where you are?

Tory Lanez ft. Quavo & Tyga “Broke Leg,” Trippie Redd “Under Enemy Arms” & More | Daily Visuals 5.31.19

While Drake is taking a break from being the King of The North to act a fool and mouth off at a few Warriors who are visiting his land, fellow Canadian Tory Lanez continues to focus on his grind and keep his name buzzing out in these streets.

In his latest clip to the Quavo and Tyga assisted “Broke Leg,” Lanez and company find themselves surrounded by women who use crutches as props as they twerk their butts off like their lives depended on it. We bet this was the first time a video shoot had Icey Hot by the tons for booty soreness.

Trippie Redd meanwhile continues to take shots at his former rival turned states evidence, Tekashi 6ix9ine as he gets his Call of Duty on before we see a white rat with rainbow streaks on it’s fur (LOL) creeping through the battlefield in his military themed visual to “Under Enemy Arms.”

Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Boogie, Son of Tony and more.

TORY LANEZ FT. QUAVO & TYGA – “BROKE LEG”

TRIPPIE REDD – “UNDER ENEMY ARMS”

BOOGIE – “EXPOSE ME FREESTYLE”

SON OF TONY – “ASYLUM”

NESSLY FT. LIL YACHTY – “FOREIGN SHEETS”

Another one of Nipsey Hussle’s dreams is set to come true. Nick Cannon is seeing to it that his film idea will still enlighten the masses.


HipHopDX is reporting contrary to online rumors that the Ncredible mogul is still moving forward with producing the Dr. Sebi documentary. Originally the brainchild of the fallen rapper, the film was set to chronicle his life and how we won a Supreme Court case proving he could cure AIDS. Nick took to his official Instagram to deny the speculation that production has come to a stop.

His post featured a collage of the acclaimed natural healer and Cannon with the heading “NICK CANNON CANCELD DR. SEBI MOVIE AFTER RECEIVING DEATH THREATS FEARING HE END UP LIKE NIPSEY HUSSLE”. In classic Nick style his personal caption let the masses know he finds humor in almost everything but is still very serious about getting the project done. “Oh “They” wish this was the truth!! Who made this dumb shit?! LOL #Fearless” he wrote.

Shortly after the passing of Nipsey Hussle the former “Gigolo” announced that he would take on the feature and make sure it is released. On April 15 Sebi’s remaining family members posted a picture with Cannon on Instagram stating “Just wrapped up an amazing meeting with some amazing minds. Working to create the best experience for all of you awaiting this documentary!”

While a release date has yet to be set the work will most likely be ready closer to 2021.

WATCH: Trippie Redd – “UNDER ENEMY ARMS” (Music Video)

After premiering his new single a few days ago on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show through Apple Music, Trippie Redd now gives us the official music video for his first 2019 single titled “UNDER ENEMY ARMS.”

Redd’s first official drop of the year is expected to pop up on his upcoming sophomore album, currently going by either ! or Immortal. The video was directed by Christian Breslauer, and shows Redd getting real cinematic on a “Black Joker” type of vibe. From campaigning to be America’s First President of Trap to landing in a battlefield for a gory gun fight, the visual element alone deserves props for art direction. The Ohio-bred MC keeps it fresh on the fashion tip as well, and it all seems to be intentional given that he told Zane during their interview, “I’ve pretty much got the concepts for lots of videos and shit. I’m trying to be visual with this one.” The step-up on a cinematic level is already a move in the right direction, and the song itself is a turn-up that may give it a placement on the charts in the very near future. Not a bad way at all to make an entrance back into the game.

Watch the music video for “UNDER ENEMY ARMS” by Trippie Redd above, and we’ll keep you all updated on a solid date for the upcoming project.

Vans Vault OG Authentic LX “Checkerboard” Pack

After already keeping the classic trend going with an All Over Checkerboard Pack released earlier this month, Vans Vault decided to cap off May 2019 with one last drop that utilizes the brand’s go-to print for a proper Summer 2019 release.

Focusing in on the OG Authentic LX, the new “Checkerboard” Pack constructs the silhouette in a suede/canvas upper offered in red, blue, black and brown hues. The overall design places the checkerboard at the toe and via a strip on the heel, with the tongue and quarter panels presenting a more solid-based color theme. Crisp white laces are included for each of the four iterations, and the tonal stitching adds a small-yet-noticeable style detail that brings in a classic touch right along with the waffle rubber outsole. If you can’t get enough of the box-based print in your personal wardrobe, Vans is making sure you don’t run out of options in the least bit.

Cop the Vans Vault OG Authentic LX “Checkerboard” Pack in any of the four colorways right now for $65 USD at select retailers, including Feature who provided the imagery seen here:

The fans asked and Cardi B has granted their wish. Trap’s Selena has finally dropped her long teased follow-up single.

As spotted on Complex back in December 2018 the Bronx bombshell shared an in-studio performance of an unreleased track. Wearing a “bute” little red dress and using a copious amount of finger guns, she proudly rapped “Cardi don’t need no more press!”. The brief clip took on a life of its’ own and naturally the Bardi Gang wanted those rachet feels asap. Five months later the completed song is here.

Earlier this week Belcalis started teasing the formal release with several film noire styled promotional pictures alerting the masses of the May 31 launch date. Well now “Press” is officially here.

A little over the two-minute mark the new single finds Cardi in her comfort zone rapping on a mid-tempo bounce where she flips the title to the thirst of jealous females and the media who she has always had a love hate relationship with.

Meek Mill To Accept Apology From Cosmopolitan Hotel

Meek Mill and his crew were met by security after attempting to party at the Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas over the weekend and were told conflicting reasons as to why they couldn’t enter. Now, the hotel is issuing an apology that the Philadelphia rapper will accept, this after his lawyer called the incident racist while threading a lawsuit.

TMZ reports:

Multiple sources with direct knowledge tell us, the Cosmo will issue a “significant public apology” expressing regret and accepting fault when Meek was told last Saturday to leave the hotel … or else.

TMZ broke the story, Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, prepared a lawsuit he intended to file this week against the hotel, claiming racial discrimination and defamation. Tacopina claims there is a blacklist for black rappers at the hotel, but hotel sources say that’s BS.

We’ve also learned the lawyer for O.J. Simpson reached out to Tacopina, saying O.J. had been mistreated by the hotel as well. In November 2017, hotel staff kicked O.J. out after the staff claimed he was intoxicated and unruly. He was permanently banned from the grounds.

The outlet adds that Snoop Dogg even had run-ins with the Cosmo, and the bad PR definitely seemed to do the trick for Meek and his squad.

Gucci Decks Outs Its G-Sync Watch In Classic Color Options

Gucci shows off two new colorways for its G-Sync series, the Italian fashion house’s latest line of premium watches available for the SS19 season.

Whether you prefer things crisp and clean like the white translucent timepiece seen below, or with a pop of color like the version above that opts for signature hues, both provide all the specs we’ve come to associate with a high-quality accessory made by a leading luxury brand. In addition to Ronda quartz movement and water-resistance up to 50 meters, both Swiss-made watches are constructed with silver-tone hardware that all pack in together to measure out at 46mm. The rubber strap gives the entire structure a sturdiness and flexibility that’s literally brought together via a pin-buckle fastener. Need a fresh time-teller to flex in this summer? Gucci got it!

The new Gucci G-Sync watches in “Deep Green/Red” and “White” are available now at select retailers, including SSENSE where they’re priced at $610 USD. Check out the latter option in closer detail below:

‘Twilight’ Actor Robert Pattinson Is Officially the New Batman

He played a lovelorn vampire in the epic mid-2000s film saga we all know as Twilight alongside Kristen Stewart, and now Robert Pattinson is sinking his teeth into another film franchise after being officially casted in the coveted leading role for the upcoming Batman reboot.

…Next Batman, what do you think?

A post shared by Robert Pattinson (@official_robertpattinson) on May 17, 2019 at 2:59pm PDT

After giving details earlier this year on the general plot and a ballpark release date for the upcoming superhero flick, director Matt Reeves finally got his prime choice for the role of Bruce Wayne according to Deadline, where it’s being reported that Warner Bros has approved the choice of Pattinson as the Caped Crusader. The decision was said to be between Rob and actor Nicholas Hoult — he currently plays Beast in the newly-revamped X-Men film series — and the higher-ups made their choice after a round of meetings that included sitting with audition tapes for both actors.

Here’s how Deadline sums up Pattinson’s overall campaign for the role as Batman:

“Pattinson is a strong choice. He certainly has been at the center of a zeitgest franchise before in Twilight Saga, and he has used the time after to show his chops as an actor in films like High Life, and is starring for Warner Bros in Christopher Nolan’s next film, and just debuted in the Robert Eggers-directed The Lighthouse at Cannes.”

The deal is reportedly being finalized with an official announcement to follow, which includes at least two more films that will each lay out the foundation of how Bruce Wayne becomes one of the greatest superheroes in the DC Universe and comic book history altogether.

Charlamagne Tha God Fries Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Calls Her “Original Rachel Dolezal”

As Elizabeth Warren continues her quest to win the Democratic Party nomination for President of the United States for the 2020 campaign, the Massachusetts senator will also endure deeper scrutiny. During a stop at Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club show, Charlamagne Tha God grilled Sen. Warren on her claims of being Native American, referring to her as the “original Rachel Dolezal.”

Warren joined the program Friday morning (May 31) and discussed a variety of issues but things went a little left when Charlamagne zeroed in on the senator’s past claims of native ancestry.

“You’re kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal, a little bit,” Charlamagne said. “Rachel Dolezal was a white woman pretending to be black.”

Warren was continually peppered with questions regarding the claim and before long, she conceded to the gaffe she made in making the Native American connection.

“I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family the same way most people learn about their family, from my momma and my daddy and my aunts and my uncles, and it’s what I believed,” Warren retorted. “But I’m not a person of color. I’m not a citizen of a tribe, and I shouldn’t have done it.”

Check out the interview below.
