The world of sports and hip-hop collided Saturday evening as T.I.’s Grand Hustle celebrated their collaboration with Amar’e Stoudemire’s Hypocalypto entertainment. Stoudemire announced their joint venture to promote his new atrist, Juice and the event, hosted at Justin’s Restaurant drew a mix of ball players and music industry celebs. Killer Mike, Big Kuntry King, Lisa Leslie (WNBA), Ovie Mughelli (Falcons), D. Woods, Drumma Boy, Sheree Whitfield, Deon Grant (Seahawks), and more were spotted chillin in the crowded back room.
Atlantic Records held a private listening party for T.I.’s hot artist, B.o.B., Friday evening. B.o.B., short for Bobby Ray is a Decatur bred musical phenomenon who’s been featured on several Grand Hustle songs. He’s got a hot song in rotation (I’ll be in the Sky), which is almost unheard of for a new artist without an album…AND he’s got a grand endorsement from The King himself:
I know that a lot of times it take an artist this talented, this diversified a little longer to break on an underbelly level cause it’s very very hard to get him to come back down to earth with us sometimes but I’m letting you know that nothing could be more worth your time than this artist right here…right now. This is the future of what I consider respectable in hip hop. It ain’t nothing this dude can’t do. If he don’t rap, it ain’t cause he can’t it’s cause he don’t feel like it. If he ain’t on no hood sh*t, it cause that ain’t how he feel.
So, rather than force him to do something he don’t wanna do, I’d just rather sit back and admire all the things he does do. He does the sh*t well, so it brings me great honor and enormous pleasure to introduce B.o.B. to the rest of the world and I hope y’all stand behind him as much as I do. And with that said I must bid you farewell. Keep it pimpin…
I can honestly say, B.o.B. is the truth and I CAN”T WAIT for his cd to drop. In case you still need some convincing, download the “Who the F*ck is B.o.B.” Mixtape below: Continue Reading…
