Rest in peace, Anthony Mason.
The former New York Knick has died at the age of 48 after a prolonged, preexisting heart issue. Mason had received several surgeries on his heart to correct the issue. He died from congestive heart failure, according to his son Anthony, Jr.
The 6’ 7” giant played in the NBA for 13 years, but rose to prominence during a 5-year run with the Knicks.
In the 1994-95 season, Mason, a fan favorite, won the prestigious Sixth Man Award as a Knick. He also played for the Charlotte Hornets, Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat, according to ESPN.
Fans may finally get the Missy Elliott comeback that they’ve been waiting for.
After her Super Bowl XLIX halftime performance with Katy Perry, her decade-old hits like “Lose Control” and “Work It” popped into the iTunes top 10 and almost broke Spotify. She then hopped on the remix of Diplo and Skrillex’s Kiesza-assisted track “Take Ü There” and was spotted in the studio with her longtime partner Timbaland. Now, a pic of the “Supa Dupa Fly” rapper/producer and Pharrell Williams in the studio has been floating around.
There’s no word of what or whose music they have been working on, but we can only hope that it’s Missy’s.
If anyone can appeal to the ladies, it’s Trey Songz. That’s why he has been tapped to be the face of SX Liquors, a spirits company that wants to appeal to the women with an assortment of rum, vodka and tequila that’s bottled up in a curvy bottle. Their tequila comes as SX cafedoble and SX Cha Cha Cha, vodka is deemed SX negro and SX blanco and rum is available as SX Samba and SX Mojito.
“We needed to find the best person on the planet that could help us market, not only from a collaboration of ideas, but also the ability to take it to the people and when we were introduced to Trey Songz and his amazing following, especially for females, it was just the perfect fit,” David Knight, SX Liquors CEO, said at a New York press conference.
The “Slow Motion” singer said that the idea of being the face of the brand was brought to him by his management and that the sensual packaging caught his eye.
“At first, I was very interested in the bottle, the bottle is unlike anything I’ve ever seen and if you really pay close attention, it’s like a lady’s legs crossed, which, to me, represents sexy but classy at the same time.”
Trigga also spotlighted the new liquor in his “Slow Motion” video and says that will be keeping it in tow wherever he goes.
“We will not fail, you will see SX everywhere I go,” said the VA crooner. “It will be used as a tool… If you want Trey Songz, you got to have SX too as far as promotions go, as far as shows go, as far as clubs go, as far as anything we do. We will need commitments from the parties that will be wanting commitments from us. I look forward to seeing SX in your homes, SX right on your bar and I want you to request it at the clubs.”
Iggy Azalea once again rubbed some Hip Hop followers the wrong way when she expressed people in the culture do not give her the respect she is due. Azalea called out New York radio station Hot 97 in particular.
“It’s frustrating for me with, because I’ll have personal relationships with them outside of the media,” said Iggy. “I find it particularly, personally offensive when they often times take on the general opinion of others or the viewership to try to get clicks.”
Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg responded to Iggy’s comments during a segment of “The Realness.” The Ebro In The Morning co-host started off by saying he has never dissed Iggy. He then suggested the “Fancy” performer’s issue with the station stem from an interview Hot did with her rival Azealia Banks.
“Did we give another artist a platform to express her feelings about Iggy Azalea? Yes, we did. Did we agree with and understand some of the things that artist said? Of course,” Rosenberg replied. “Instead of Iggy talking to me about that. She DM’d me upset, and then instantly unfollowed me [on Twitter]. That is not how you handle a dialogue.”
According to Rosenberg, the conversations about Iggy on Hot 97 were to help her gain credibility in Hip Hop and maintain longevity. He also called the Australia native talented but believes Iggy’s ego may be playing a part in the riff.
“Honestly, Iggy has let her ego get in the way of having a dialogue,” added Rosenberg. “You should not go to some random ass pop station – no disrespect – and talk about your relationship in Hip Hop.”

It seems no one warned Kid Rock about the Bey Hive. The veteran rocker made some comments about Beyoncé in Rolling Stone magazine, and the “Drunk In Love” singer’s fans took to Instagram to endlessly bash Rock.
“Beyoncé, to me, doesn’t have a f**king ‘Purple Rain,’ but she’s the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock and Roll’?”asked Rock. “People are like, ‘Beyoncé’s hot. Got a nice f**king ass.’ I’m like, ‘Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big tits.’ Doesn’t really f**king do much for me.”
Those statements led to Beyoncé’s followers flooding Kid Rock’s Instagram page. Almost every recent picture on the “Cowboy” performer’s IG now includes thousands of comments featuring the Bey Hive’s signature bee emoji and critical replies.
Turns out that Taraji P. Henson’s Empire character Cookie isn’t the only one inspired some of the finest in hip-hop. The show’s creator Danny Strong has revealed that Lucious Lyon, played by Terrence Howard, is based off of Jay Z.
During a visit to Sway in the Morning, Strong and Sway addressed the negative feedback the show has gotten for the stereotypical aspects of some of the characters’ story lines, like Lucious being a drug dealer-turned-music mogul.
“I’ve heard that, but there’s certainly some truth in that,” Strong said. “The Jay Z story, which very much inspired Lucious Lyon, certain elements of Lucious Lyon, was that story.” He continued “So for me, I don’t think in terms of ‘Okay we have to be careful of certain things because of certain negative stereotypes’. I view it as the entire cast is African-American [so] we’re gonna have all different types of characters and we’re gonna tell good stories. We’re not gonna sit here and play defense or think that our show is a representation as Black culture in its entirety. It’s not; it’s just this story.”
