Earlier today Vic teased about dropping a freestyle tonight and here it is….

Starting with a nod to Jay Z to show off his recent signing to the Roc, Vic goes on to deliver a killer freestyle referencing given fools the DDT, police violence against the community, the Illuminati, styling like a young Jimmy Page, and how he made “U Mad” before meeting Ye to put down any thought that his recent rise was due to Kanye’s feature.

Storied NFL team the Green Bay Packers have revealed their Nike-designed alternate uniform for the upcoming 2015-16 season. The “new” design replicates the team’s 1937 look, which GB hasn’t sported since 1994.

This uniform of a navy blue and gold jersey with faded gold pants and navy socks. This color scheme is paired with the gold yoke across the shoulders, the distinctive feature of their uniforms from 1937-49.

The fan jerseys will be available for purchase on Nike.com and in select retailers beginning today.

We’re die-hard Chicago Bears fans so eff the Packers (generally speaking), but props on the look of the uniform. See more pictures below. Read More →

Being one of my favorite music groups, Major Lazer has made the day a lot better by releasing their new remix of, “Nobody Has To Know’. Kranium and Ty Dolla $ign’s reggae-felt original track has just transformed into into a future dancehall mix with the help of KickRaux.

Diplo (one of the three minds behind Major Lazer) even spoke of the new record by stating, “Kranium has one of the biggest songs of the past two years and Kickraux is one of the favorite new producers; making some future dancehall.”

Don’t miss Major Lazer in Chicago on Sept. 26th at the Mad Decent Block Party. This event will also feature other guests like Klingande, Martin Solveig, Towkio, and UZ. (PURCHASE TICKETS HERE!!)

Check out the dope mix down below.

Vic Mensa

Drake - Back To Back

Bruh… Drake has responded to the latest Meek Mill diss with one of his own with his new track “Back To Back Freestyle.” When you hear this one, it’s pretty easy to determine who’s winning this beef. While pointing out that the Canadian rapper has the upper hand now, it’s tough deciding which line burns more when Drake says things like “You love her then you gotta get a world tour/ Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?” and “Trigger fingers turn into Twitter fingers/You getting bodied by a singing n*gga/I’m not the type of n*gga that’ll type n*ggas/Shout to all my boss bitches wifin n*ggas.”

Drizzy is a savage! If you’re hearing this, Meek, it’s too late. Play “Back To Back” after the jump. Read More →

Key & Peele - TeachingCenter

What if we covered American education the way we do so with sports? Well Key & Peele gives a glimpse at what that would look like with a skit that shows both comedians as anchors covering all sorts of teaching scenarios inspired by pop sporting culture like an announcement of a major switch to Cleveland, the draft, a little play-by-play analysis, and even an over-the-top commercial.

Check out that funny clip above.
