I wish this story would disappear the same way Te’o disappeared during the BCS title game. Pow! Zing! But seriously I am so fed up with the coverage this guy is getting from the media. I hope everyone realizes at the end of the day if he winds up being part of the hoax it really doesn’t mean anything. No laws were broken and no rules were violated. Worst case NFL teams will think twice about him, which I am sure they already are doing. We are basically covering an over-hyped linebacker who I am expecting will not be anymore than an average NFL player. But, news is news and there is a new update to this story with a twist.

Apparently, this dude is the hip-hop spirit guide. A$AP Yams is his name and he seems to be the leader behind the Mob on the rise. “Yams is the hip-hop encyclopedia,” Rocky said. “He’s no joke. That’s one person I can’t front on when it comes to music.” At the age of 16 Yams interned at Diplomats Records, and managed a few producers, helping them sell their songs to rappers. Music was his thing. In 2008 is when Yams hooked up with Rocky and from there it all sky-rocketed. The two had to be in the studio almost daily, so that Rocky could find the type of voice that suited him. Looks like it all worked out for the best. Drop down bottom for more on Yams.

The Wu-Tang Clan is one of, if not the greatest, rap group ever even if they don’t make any more music they will go down in hip hop history. The day after the group has been announced to be on the Coachella line-up, Raekwon the Chef opens up about the drama the crew had. Wu-Tang had nine members but what seems like a million affiliates so you already know personalities were going to clash since everyone had their own ideas and thoughts. Raekwon said that even though all the guys were talented and has respect for each other, that clash in personalities lead to their drama. He also spoke about some new projects he’s working on.

Looks like Carmelo Anthony really gives zero f*cks about the whole Honey Nut Cheerios/Kevin Garnett mess. Not only did Melo sign a box Honey Nut Cheerios with a fan, but he also took a pic with the kid and cereal box (not looking very happy though)! What a guy that Melo!
Babyface knows that he has raised a beautiful little girl. Peyton Edmonds has been placed in the Guess Kids campaign alongside Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead.

There has been a lot of buzz about this year’s Superbowl Half Time Show since Queen Bey has been announced as the performer. She is said to have lip-synched her inauguration performance to preserve her voice just for the occasion, posted pics on her Instagram of her practicing, and a rumored set list of what she will be performing leaked today. There’s only one problem, with Michelle Williams wasn’t invited to perform, she’s really trying to keep it a secret, or there won’t be a Destiny’s Child reunion on Superbowl Sunday. Hmm, I think she’s just trying to attempt to keep the performance under wraps. Watch what she said and judge for yourself below.
