That one guy though. Really dude? You are an all-time, all your life, 49'er fan and you did not recognize the guy you're sitting next to? One of the team's... check that...the WORLD'S all-time greats?? Actually... Jerry's disguise is pretty solid. He can go shopping low-key. Still hilariously wonderful though.
See what happens when Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice turns on Driver Mode for a day and takes a few unsuspecting Lyft passengers for a ride around town.

(AllHipHop News) Late last year, news broke that British singer Rita Ora was suing Roc Nation in order to get out of her contract with the label. The company, founded by Jay Z, has now filed a counter suit against Ora.
In its cross-complaint, filed last Friday (Jan. 29) in California Superior Court, says it has "tirelessly promoted" Ora's career, spending over $2.3 million promoting and recording her 2012 album Ora. The filing calls for that $2.3 million to be returned, and for damages on the four remaining records in her contract.
According to Ora's lawyer, Howard E. King, Jay Z called the "R.I.P." performer after she filed her suit and the Hip Hop mogul said he would released her from the Roc Nation contract. King even referred to Jay as "gracious" and suggested Sony Music has been delaying the process.
"It was just a little twist, because Jay Z, we are told, has to answer to Sony Music, so that's been the hangup in having this go away," stated King. "But we're confident that Jay can resolve whatever he has to with Sony Music."
Rita Ora released one album under Roc Nation, 2012's Ora. The LP debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, and it spawned The Notorious B.I.G. sampling, UK hit record "How We Do (Party)".
(AllHipHop News) A new song from an Indigenous brother of Hip-Hop is taking Macklemore to task after writing the controversial song "White Privilege 2."
Gyasi Ross, a Native of America, responds to the song, requesting that his fellow Seattle peer "pass the mic" and let others speak for themselves. He relayed his exact feelings on the song and offered up "White Privilege III" as a lyrical response to Macklemore's "well-intentioned piece."
White Privilege III is obviously a response to Macklemore's well-intentioned piece, 'White Privilege II.' Yet, White Privilege III is much bigger than one song as Macklemore is simply the latest in a very long line of white liberals who chose to play the white savior role and speak for brown-skinned people instead of providing the platform for them to speak for themselves. He's neither the first nor the greatest, only the latest. We must resist that tendency and push white people who wish to be allies to, instead of attempting to speak for us, passing the mic and leveraging their platforms to let us speak for ourselves. Specifically, if Macklemore indeed wished to limit the universe of parties affected by white privilege and ignore Muslims, Latinos, Natives, Asians, etc. as he did in this song, I suppose that's his prerogative. Still, if he truly wishes to be an ally he should put marginalized voices to the forefront instead of simply consulting with them and keeping the glory for his white guilt epiphany for himself. The next step in the evolution of the ally is simply to utilize her/his platform and make the introduction, get off the stage and let the stakeholder speak for themselves; for the stakeholder to become the subject and not the object.
Prodigy of Mobb Deep announced a new cookbook back in December, and now we are getting new music. 2016 is off to a great start. Thanks to this week's Mixtape Mondays installment from DJ Absolut, we get to hear "Originate."
This new track doesn't stray too far from Prodigy and Mobb Deep's usual, gritty, New York sound. There's no word as to whether this song will pop up on any projects in the near future, but it's a great Monday treat nonetheless.
