Magnum Opus: Black Sheep “The Choice is Yours”

You know your getting old when “The Choice is Yours” turns 25.  The classic hip hop record turned 25 on October 29th this year.  So kids the song playing in the Kia commercial is old.   This mini-documentary  Black Sheep’s Dres and Mista Lawnge, DJ Red Alert, Posdnuos of De La Soul, Chi-Ali and others  speak  about the song’s history, Black Sheep’s origins, and how the remix came after they initially disliked the original version. Dres and Lawnge also speak on the group’s break up, reuniting, and how the song comes to life again with each passing generation.

Steph Curry Breaks NBA Record For Three Pointers

With just one game after breaking his streak of consecutive games with a made three, to my Lakers (lol).   Steph Curry set a new NBA record with 13 three-pointers in a single game. This all happen with the Golden State Warriors’ 116-106 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. The reigning MVP finished with a amazing stat line going 15-26 from the field and 13-17 in three pointers for 46 points in just 36 minutes. Making the win more impressive is that he drained a triple on three consecutive possessions to seal  the fourth quarter. Check out the historic shot below.

P.S. He passed up my guy Kobe Bryant.  It’s ok records are made to be broken.


Black America Again

Common has released a short film called “Black America Again” produced by Ava Duvernay.  The same person the produced Selma and The 13th.

With the film reaching a bit over 21 minutes, the film offers what Common says is “a meditation” on the album’s content, stitching together a set of  black-and-white visual poems. Intermittently, Common pops up, rapping stripped down verses from the album on abandoned streets, accompanied by a beatboxing drummer.  Check out the short film below and let us know what you think in the comments below.
