Thursday Throwback: "Only You [Remix]" -- 112 ft. Notorious B.I.G. and Mase

This track still bangs, and it marked the debut of a young Mr. Betha in the then-burgeoning world of mainstream hip-hop.

Tail Report: The BSN Girls

If you've never heard of BSN, don't worry—neither had I before catching today's Maxim gallery. And though I'm neither a fan of the UFC, nor am I into nutritional supplements, I can honestly now say that I love BSN with all of my heart.

Kim K. Protects Her Assets

TMZ has confirmed that Kim Kardashian will be bringing extra protection when she rolls to her boyfriend's next football game—and we ain't talking a spare pack of magnums.

The New Orleans Saints' luckiest charm -- Kim Kardashian's booty -- is gonna be the most protected back at the Super Bowl this year ... because it's set to be chauffeured around Miami in a veritable fortress on wheels.

TMZ has learned Reggie Bush's favorite asset will be hitting the town on Super Bowl weekend in a Vault XXL2 Limousine by Armor Horse -- which is a tank/limo hybrid built with composite ballistic panels and bullet-resistant windows.

And that's not all: Both doors on the limo are fitted with emergency gun ports -- so, whether the limo is rockin' or not ... it's best if you don't come a knockin'.

Kim K.'s booty + Miami Beach? If you ask me, this rental makes perfect sense. It would probably take gun ports and composite ballastic panels to keep me from her, and I'm not even her biggest fan. Rumor has it The Hero applied to be the limo driver but failed the security screening.

Air Jordan Retro VI Lakers Edition

From kixandthecity:
Later this Spring Jordan Brand is set to release the Lakers Air Jordan Retro VI. The Lakers Air Jordan Retro VI is an homage inspired by Michael Jordan's first championship against the Showtime Lakers, a championship he won while wearing the Air Jordan VI. The Lakers Air Jordan Retro VI features a combo upper of nubuck and leather with White, Yellow, and Purple contrast stitching. The upper sits on a Black midsole and clear and Black outsole.

Douchebaguette Down!

Let me just say this: I loathe "Jersey Shore." And the one thing I hate more than this ridiculous TV show is a douchey "tough guy" who will hit a woman without thinking twice, but is probably the first one to run when a man steps to him.

That being said...When those two entities combine to result in a loudmouth broad who needs to be checked getting splattered across a bar floor, well... I'm sorry, call me "un-PC", but I've been L'ing my A off since the infamous scene first came into the social consciousness. For those of you who are with me on this, here are two great odes to the already legendary television moment from Best Week Ever.

Let's all just hope that this chick Snooki actually learned a valuable STFU lesson out of this. (Not that I'm foolish enough to believe that she did, just saying...)

Prank Fail

Students at a Kansas high school blindfolded their basketball coach, stood him at half court, and told him that if he hit a shot from there, he'd win tickets to the NCAA Men's Final Four.

The catch? The students never had the tickets. Because, I mean, who could possibly hit a half-court shot while blindfolded?

Giving Everything You Can Bare

In the words of TJ, "Nice to see everyone's doing their part to help Haiti."

From The Huffington Post:
Amy Fisher, famous for her disastrous affair with Joey Buttafuoco, is baring all for the people of Haiti.

Fisher will be stripping at Scene Restaurant & Lounge in Commack, LI today through Saturday, and will donate a portion of her wages to charity.

The former "Long Island Lolita" launched a porn site last year and has been touring the country as a stripper.

I'm not a huge fan of this model but the more colors I see, the more they grow on me and this color is ill.

We've Come So Far, But Still Have So Far to Go...

The irony of this news clip is astonishing.
A 19-year-old man was fatally shot in the face and two men were arrested on drug charges after fleeing police in separate incidents that occurred near the route for Monday's Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade, according to Baltimore police.

The struggle continues, Dr. King. Perhaps some day we'll learn to take the reigns of our own destiny.

Jimmy Kimmel Owns Jay Leno

If you've read anything about the fiasco going on at NBC over the Leno/Conan war, then you know many of their talk show counterparts aren't too pleased with Jay. Count Jimmy Kimmel as one of them.

Some chick named Megan. Anyone ever heard of this girl before? She's kind of attractive.

DAG on Hip Hop

Given the sad state of news over the last several days (see the last two posts for a small example), I figured I'd offer a little levity (other than the laughter that's found at **SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT**On the Rocks**SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT**). This is a little old, but still r-o-f-l worthy.

The A-Team Trailer

This is likely to be the most anticipated movie of 2010. And, judging by the trailer, there appears to be several pluses about this big screen adaptation. For one, it looks like the writers did a good job with the dialogue. And the actors (Liam Neeson, Sharlto Copley, Bradley Cooper, and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson) seem to keep their characters true to their iconic TV show counterparts. The action sequences, though...I'm sorry, but Bradley Cooper popping out of an armored vehicle's hatch to fire a machine gun at a Predator drone as the vehicle plummets through the sky may be a little far-fetched. Especially when fans of the original A-Team would've been satisfied with seeing a Jeep flip.

Tattletail Sister = OWNED

This is one of the most singlehandedly brilliant feats of revenge that I've ever seen. A teenage boy's sister rats him out to their parents for having a 12 pack of beer in his room. They ground him for 3 months, and he decides payback is in order. So he finds an incredibly in-depth hookup list she's keeping, adds a scanner and Facebook, and...becomes legendary.

Revenge, Facebook Style: Brother 1, Sister 0

The author's observations are fantastic, as is every last detail of this masterpiece in ownage.

(Thanks to my girl Juli for the find.)

This is a classic, just watch the highlights. Nash put this together himself.

Daily Dunk: Juwan Howard

Can I just say that this dude was a member of the FAB FIVE. There's kids in college who don't even know what the fab five is and he's out here in the league bashing on boys. Props to Howard. C-Webb went nuts on NBA TV when they showed this highlight, he broke out into the Michigan fight song.
