Jay Williams Blasts Warriors For “Misdiagnosing” Kevin Durant: Watch

Williams is a close friend of Durant.

Kevin Durant’s ruptured Achilles injury that he sustained in Game 5 of the NBA Finals is something that has haunted the Golden State Warriors all week. Many analysts believe Durant shouldn’t have been forced to come back so soon, which is rich considering many of these same analysts were begging KD to return to the court. Either way, the Warriors are being lambasted by some members of the media, including ESPN’s Jay Williams who had some hard words for the franchise on Get Up! this morning.

Prior to Game 5, Williams explained how Durant would absolutely play in the match and that the franchise told him there was no way he could end up injuring his Achilles. Of course, that wasn’t true as that’s exactly what he did in the second quarter. This led Williams to accuse the Warriors of misdiagnosing Durant with the intentions of getting the most out of him before leaving the franchise in free agency.

Thanks to the mismanagement of Durant’s injury, it appears as though he could miss the entirety of the 2019-2020 season which would be disastrous for KD as he is up for a new contract as of June 30th.

The Warriors will try to close out the NBA Finals without him as Game 6 goes down tonight at 9 P.M. EST. The Toronto Raptors are currently leading the series 3-2.

Jay Critch Is Back With HIs Latest Track “Adlibs 2”

Jay Critch was dubbed as one artist to look out for in 2018. Although he was closely aligned with Rich The Kid and Famous Dex as a member of the Rich Forever label, he’s standing on his own two now. That’s not to say that he’s distanced himself from them, he’s just established himself as an artist in his own right. His debut project, Hood Favorite arrived last fall to the applaud of critics and fans alike. Now, he comes through with his latest track, “Adlibs 2.”

Day one fans of Jay Critch might recall his single, “Adlibs,” and now, he returns with the sequel. Over a bouncy, upbeat instrumental, Jay Critch flexes his lyrical prowess and continues to prove why he’s one of the next up out of New York.

Quotable Lyrics
Gotta make it flip but I really want a Bentley coupe
If you get a bag, lose it all, then you been a fool
I got mob ties way deeper than your swimming pool
You ain’t got hear me talkin’ bout it in no interview

June 10, 2019 Jay Rock Vs Kendrick Lamar: Who Had The Better Verse?

Jay Rock Vs Kendrick Lamar: Who Had The Better Verse?

In some far-off alternate reality, the power rankings of Top Dawg Entertainment is unrecognizable from what we’ve come to accept. Once thought of as the fledgling label’s flagship export, the embryonic stages of TDE were practically structured to allow Jay Rock to rise to the top of the hip-hop mountain. Granted the unique distinction of being the first artist to release music on the label with the Lil Wayne and Will.I.Am aided “All My Life (In The Ghetto), his position as the colonel leading the charge has meant that many of the signees that followed were meant to file in behind him. As Kendrick was finding his feet as an MC under the TDE umbrella, one of the ways in which he cut his teeth was in the role of Jay Rock’s onstage hype man during the Follow Me Home era and beyond. Fast-forward to the release of Good Kid M.A.A.D City in 2012 and, in one fell swoop, Kendrick requisitioned any hope of Jay serving as TDE’s standard-bearer in a commercial or critical standpoint.

Blanketly overlooked by the casual rap fan for many years, the aptly named Redemption from last year finally gave TDE’s OG a chance to claw back some of the shine that had been deflected onto his fellow Top Dawg stablemates such as K.Dot, Q and SZA. For hardcore hip-hop fans, the upswing of praise that he’s received in terms of chart performance and even a Grammy nod was nothing if not agonizingly overdue.

Impactful upon nearly every appearance, the long-term misrepresentation of Jay Rock is something that has skewed public perceptions to portray him as a lesser calibre MC than Kendrick. But as he’s proven on numerous occasions, his trademark bluntness can occupy the same space as Kendrick’s lyrical abstractions without registering as a conciliatory add on.

One-time Bar-for-bar sparring partners during a long-form homage to the opposite coast known as No Sleep Till NYC from 2007, it’s time to pit their more celebrated collaborations head-to-head in order to establish if any major deficit between the two has emerged of if they remain at a comparative level of skill and rhyming ability.

June 7, 2019 YBN Almighty Jay Comes To Shocking Realization: He Owes Fofty

YBN Almighty Jay Comes To Shocking Realization: He Owes Fofty

Monday is around the corner.

Few things can instill fear in a grown man like the looming threat of a Fofty unpaid. We’ve even seen Tony Yayo, himself a staunch 50 Cent loyality, shaking in his boots at the notion of settling debts unpaid. At this point, Teairra Mari may very well have created a monster, awakening a fierce passion for kneebreaking in the Get Rich Or Die Tryin mogul. It’s gotten so out of control that lesser men have crumbled at the mere notion of facing Fofty; ask Randall Emmet, whose body literally rebelled at the thought of going toe to toe. Even Chrissy Teigen stepped in to pledge unwavering loyalty to Fifty’s cause, living proof of the classic adage: “if you can’t beat em, join em.”

Today, YBN Almighty Jay found himself coming to a startling realization: he owes 50 Cent money. The young rapper recently made the announcement on social media, as captured by SOHH, who provided an appropriate picture for additional laughs. To be fair, it’s likely that YBN Almighty Jay is merely taking the piss, and does not actually owe 50 Cent anything other than, perhaps, a degree of his style. Yet the fact that owing 50 Cent has become somewhat of a running joke is a statement unto itself.

Don’t be the next Randall Emmett. Pay your debts.
