My gang held it down after I missed my flight in NY, so I have no idea what they talked about. However, we also had guest Sky Articles and the Everyone In L.A. foundation to discuss the homeless crisis in Los Angeles and how we can help, so I do know that much.

Diddy had quite the merry Christmas this year! Just before Santa hit his house, the music mogul’s Revolt TV channel finally reached a deal with DIRECTV, now bringing it into millions more homes.
“Our new agreement with DIRECTV is further proof we are on a fast track to revolutionizing the media industry,” Puff said in a press release. “We are achieving what we set out to do 18 months ago – our programming is available on more screens, and our audience is bigger and more powerful than ever before. What a great way to end an already successful 2015 and launch us into the new year.”
Perhaps in the celebratory mood, Puff decided to gift his Bad Boy artist French Montana with a cool $1 million later that day. And being equally as giving, French decided to donate it all to the charity he just started in his south Bronx hometown, helping the local schools and young kids. So dope of him!
This past weekend was Willingboro, New Jersey‘s first annual celebrity basketball game, brought to us by our very own Mike Zombie! Since unveiling himself to the industry in 2013 by producing Drake‘s super-successful “Started From the Bottom” single, Zombie has put his town on the radar for many of music’s elite underground and mainstream leaders, and continued his momentum by hosting a charity event for the town’s community sports teams.
Taking place at Willingboro‘s John F. Kennedy Recreational Center, the Panthers basketball teams were split into the Blue team and the White team, consisting of some of the most prominent local celebrities that dominate both the music and sports industries. Just a few of those names include legendary battle rapper Tsu Surf, Big OOH!, Gillie Da Kid, NY Jets safety Calvin Pryor, Porta Rich, Empire‘s Black Rambo, Kazzie, Chill Moody and plenty more. Over 200 people packed the newly renovated JFK gymnasium, making for an excellent turn-out.
I’m not even going to pretend like I know how to describe a basketball game, so I’ll say that no one expected the Blue Team (Zombie‘s team) to come out with such a victory of 57-41. The most entertaining players to watch were Gillie Da Kid, who landed 3-pointers back to back accompanied by a smug smile and an energetic and warm attitude, and Calvin Pryor of the white team, who had a good start in the first quarter, weaned by the second, and came back to finish strong by the last quarter.
A$AP Rocky braved the snowstorm the North East was facing and made his way to the National Black Theater in Harlem to talk to the young men and women of the non-profit organization, Youth At Risk.
Sitting down with media personality/Youth At Risk mentor Simone “Boss Lady” Amelia, Rocky talked to the kids in a Q&A format, giving advice on how to pursue your dreams, avoid taking the wrong path, finding what’s right for YOU and more.
