Disbelief then shock rocked the world today when it was confirmed that Prince had passed away at age 57. His body was discovered this morning at his home in Paisley Park, MN. Iconic isn't descriptive enough for the life and career of this huge star with a short stature born Prince Roger Nelson.Celebrities and fans over the world are taking the news hard as Prince had just pulled though a health scare. Last week his private jet had to make an emergency landing of as his symptoms of the flu had worsened after a performance. Ironically he had surprised fans just days after the scare to assure the world he was still kicking telling the a crowd in Paisley Park "Wait a couple of days before wasting your prayers!"But with the release of a statement from his attorney fan's celebration has now turned to grief:"It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson,has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57," said his publicist Yvette Noel-Schure.What's worse is that now sources are saying that his emergency landing was actually treatment for a drug overdose! Now, I think it's sad that people are going to automatically assume narcotics but the man was suffering through the flu, does Brittany Murphy ring a bell?
The Rock N Roll Hall of Famer solidified his place in history with his release of 1999 in 1982. He went on to win seven Grammys and an Academy Award for Best Original Score for Purple Rain in 1985. His influence on the music industry stretches beyond generations and his absence will be felt forever.

Allen Iverson as a first-ballot Hall Of Fame inductee? Damn right. Things like that don't require much debate. No real revelation: A.I. is in! Changed the entire game - on and off the court. That said, what's very interesting though, is how Iverson spreads it around like a team player. "It" being praise and recognition... to Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook (his protégé), and LeBron James (the one he says has a competitor's heart most like his own). Great talk about career memories, NBA dress code then and now, and more.

We still cannot believe it. With great sadness but fondly cherished memories and thankfulness in our hearts, we at JayForce.com salute the recently departed Phife (aka Malik Boyce Taylor). Hip-Hop Nation stand up, salute and reminisce. You could just surf this site, imagine all the Phife-related posts removed, and get an idea of how deep the loss of the Phifer cuts. But you know what, the Tribe's Five-Footer is not 'lost' to us; nor will he ever be. Remember how he spoke to and spoke life to J Dilla and Baatin in the Hereafter in his "Dear Dilla" tribute track a while back? Family, you can do the same thing even now; to and for whomever you have lost. Through the tears that will eventually give way to joy from knowing him... in whatever way you see fit from now on, you can speak life to the Brother #SpeakLifeToPhife
Your 45-year struggle here is done: Rest In Peace, Phife.
(Think ESPN is the only network that can weave Hip-Hop into the broadcast ever so nicely? NO! Watch the dopest news-school tribute to our fallen, but forever fresh friend Phife Dawg. After the jump, there's all that and then some!)
Mic drop! WSB-TVs Mark Arum and Fred Blankenship paid tribute to the late A Tribe Called Quest rapper Phife Dawg by brilliantly inserting lyrics into the traffic report.

Did you ever wonder if Tommy Ford's character (you know, Tommy on the TV show Martin) actually had a job? Well... according to Tisha Campbell (Gina on the show)... the answer is YES! Hear/see her spill the beans above in the video clip.
So, Tisha says so. Is that enough? How about if Tommy himself told you? Would that do? Well, hit the jump then (with your ol' skeptical self)! And while you're there, let's have one more long belly laugh at the whole gang of 'Tommy ain't got no job maaaaan' snippets down there, too.
Lest we forget. Tommy Ford, besides being a good actor, is a good brother. Check out this acceptance speech where he talks about his real life, and TV, work.

If any rap duo has something to say, it's Kid 'N Play. Check them out as they dropped in to check out The Breakfast Club crew. Today's Hip-Hop must not forget, must respect, these dudes exemplified the party AND the hustle! The music, the dances, the movies, the SATURDAY MORNING CARTOON (haaa... remember?)... all that and more!
Kid 'N Play discuss their history, making classic movies like House Party and Class Act, their dance moves and the impact they left in Hip-Hop.
Baaaahahahaaa! These dudes are hilarious, too #SponsoredByIcyHot #HittinAARPchicks #NoNoOnTheNaeNae

Remy Ma looking good! "Platos o Plomo" (translation: "Money or Bullets") is on the way; and it's gonna be good. You already heard that "All The Way Up" right? Okay then.
This interview covers that and way more! Among other things, in the first half of this interview (way over an hour strong), Fat Joe and Remy Ma discuss mending their friendship after HEATED beef; working on new music together; how Joe went down for that tax evasion bid, Joe's fear of flying; missing out on signing Eminem & Pitbull; the continuing influence of Big Pun (RIP). The second half has Remy talking about her wedding, Fat Joe talking about getting sued 10 times in one year, how they're going to appeal to young people; and so much more!
A great watch!
