Freshtake Artist Recap: Keith Moon

Keith Moon is an iconic drummer performing with the legendary band The Who. The group members include vocalist Roger Daltrey, bassist John Entwistle, guitarist Peter Townshend, and Mr. Moon on the drums.  The band started in 1964 in North London and were originally the Detours before turning into the band we all know and love, The Who. Keith Moon joined the band when he was sitting in on a set and proclaimed he could drum better than the session drummer. The group needed to replace former drummer Doug Sandom. When Moon took over the set; the rest was history. The group members loved his enthusiam and passion on the drums that would give them an edge to become a huge act. During Moon’s dress rehearsal he demolished the drum set in the process. This would later be his trademark for The Who. It was very rare that Keith Moon would complete a show without destroying his drums, other instruments, and the stage

Drake vs. Meek Mill Twitter Tweef

As the world turns rappers seem to find a reason to hate on one another. Why have I never heard of any rock bands beefing or country singers? This specific instance for me highlights the culture of African-Americans and how frugal we can be. Pride can be a gift and a curse and it seems people prefer to use it negatively than positively. So here’s the scoop; Meek Mill decided to take a shot at Drake on twitter.

J Cole’s Dollar & A Dream Tour Provides Fans With Entrance For A Buck

J Cole for my dollar is definitely one of the best MC’s in the game. He debuted back in 2011 with his first studio album entitled Cole World. It sold 218,000 copies in its first week and to date it has sold close to 900,000 units. Since then 2 more bangers have been released Born Sinner and Forest Hills Drive so J Cole is definitely leaving his imprint in the industry, and proving he is one of the most lyrical artists in the game. One thing that makes J Cole unique is the content of his music, often encouraging the youth to think for themselves; and rise above the odds to pursue their goals no matter their origin or environment.

New Look Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers will be updating a lot more than their roster this upcoming season. New uniforms have been released to the media and they have been met with critical acclaim by many NBA analysts. So far hoop fans have given mixed reviews over the new threads but fashionista Lance Stephenson seems to love the new look.

After losing 49 games last season, Lance Stephenson seems happy to finally be back on a playoff team. His mercurial personality is probably a better fit on the West Coast. Granted the 24hour celebrity lifestyle can serve as a distraction in Los Angeles….Boom or Bust!!!

Jersey changes  in the NBA are rarely unanimously praised, I personally still miss the old Toronto uniforms with the dinosaur on the front chest. Perhaps I’m childish, but I still think that these were THE FRESHEST uniforms in NBA history … (And this coming from a Knicks Fan)

PLEASE BRING THESE BACK!!!!

Say what you want about the new uniforms but I think adding a black alternative road color to the traditional red,white and blue seems like a nice upgrade….However I’m not a fan of that South -Beach Miami-Vice hot pink’ish color they used in the Logo….ehh

What do you think of L.A’s new look?

Asante Samuel : Sports & Hip-Hop

Former Atlanta Falcon and All Pro defensive back Asante Samuel is getting into the rap game. He recently broke the news that (“Eighties Nation”) is officially under construction and he has big plans when it comes to signing talent from inner city communities.

“I saw it as a way to help people get out of our hood and give them jobs and a way to stay out of jail.”

Samuel says he’s got big plans for his company — and he’s taking his cues on how to grow the business from some of the biggest names in hip hop.

“Jay Z, Cash Money … I study all of them and I look up to those people.” — Asante Samuel

Say what you want about the over saturation of mediocre talent in the music industry, but its always good to see a guy trying to be a productive member in his community. After stops in New England and Philadelphia, Atlanta probably served as an ideal place to start his business.

Asante is also reported saying that his former teammate William Moore is a beast on the microphone. He is known for free-styling in the locker room before games to hype up the Dirty Birds defensive unit. The jury might still be out on his skills, but for an athlete he is definitely better than  Shaquille O’neal.

Aye!!!

Nike Air Zoom Vick 2 : Coming Back This Fall

 

Hate him or Love him, 10 years ago Michael Vick was the man in the NFL. Regardless of his work ethic, he was by far, the most mercurial talent to ever play his position. He had a rocket arm, and he was every bit as fast as any kick returner on special teams, (including the incredible Devin Hester. )

Off the field, Nike sportswear was cashing out with Vick who had the most popular signature shoe in the NFL.  Not since the days of Bo Jackson has any NFL player had a sneaker this coveted.

The Blk/Blk/Red colorway was (and still is) a clean looking model. The Air Zoom technology and rugged rubber outsole provided a very comfortable sneaker for cross-training on and off the field.

Ryu Got The Game On Smash

 

Nintendo has annouced ‘Ryu will be a playable character in the next installment of Super Smash Bros. Also ‘Roy from the fire emblem series is also expected to make a much anticipated return. Even though Nintendo has all but lost the console war against Microsoft and Sony, Super Smash has been a staple with gamers ever since its debut on N64.

I kind of have mixed feelings about adding Ryu to the game (but I cant explain why without being a total nerd),  what I will say is Smash Bros have always had quality gameplay and this next installment seems to be the best one yet. If your a Nintendo fan, make sure you check this game out when it debuts later this year on Wii U and 3Ds.
