Lance Stephenson Shows off Rapping Skills in New Freestyle

Lance Stephenson took care of business by signing a contract with the Charlotte Hornets earlier this offseason. With his immediate basketball future settled, he’s now demonstrating some of his off-the-court talents with a basketball-themed freestyle rap.

The 23-year-old gave some love to Indiana in the song and shouted out his new teammate Kemba Walker. Unfortunately, Stephenson failed to mention LeBron James or the ear-blowing incident.

Warning: Song is NSFW.

Looks like the Hornets can always draw upon their new 2-guard if they’re in need of halftime entertainment.

Aphex Twin Speaks Being Sampled(Stolen) by Kanye

On Kanye sampling Drukqs’ “Avril 14th” on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’s “Blame Game”: “Is it a sample? I actually don’t know what it ended up being in the end, I’m so slack. I know that he tried to fucking rip me off and claim that he’d written it, and they tried to get away with not paying. I was really helpful, and when they first sent it to me, I was like, ‘Oh, I can re-do that for you, if you like,’ because they’d sampled it really badly and time-stretched it and there was loads of artifacts. I was like, ‘I’ll just replay it for you at that speed if you want.’ And they totally didn’t even say ‘hello’ or ‘thanks,’ they just replied with, ‘It’s not yours, it’s ours, and we’re not even asking you any more.’” [laughs]

“Kobe Bryant Has ‘Zero’ Value On Trade Market Due To $48.5M Contract”-NBA GM

Kobe Bryant signed a two-year, $48.5 million contract extension last season, three weeks before he suffered a fractured left kneecap.

The contract, which the Los Angeles Lakers and Bryant signed by design to recognize Bryant’s value, makes Bryant nearly impossible to trade even if the frachise tried.

“Zero. Look at that number. Who takes him?” one NBA GM said when asked about Bryant’s value on the market.

Suge Knight Shot at Chris Brown Party

The hip-hop mogul Marion Knight, known as Suge, a founder of the Death Row Records label, was shot early Sunday at a West Hollywood, Calif., nightclub.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said that Mr. Knight, 49, another man and a woman were shot at 1:37 a.m. at the 1Oak nightclub on Sunset Boulevard. Suspects have yet to be identified, and an investigation is continuing, said Jeff Gordon, a sheriff’s deputy.

In a video posted by TMZ, Mr. Knight appears to be getting into a sheriff’s car and waiting for an ambulance to arrive. TMZ and other websites reported that Mr. Knight was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was said to be recovering from surgery in intensive care. Citing privacy rules, a hospital spokeswoman said she could not provide any information.

The event where the shooting occurred was a party hosted by the singer Chris Brown to celebrate Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards. Mr. Brown appeared to respond to the event on his Twitter account Sunday morning, writing, in part, “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes.”

This mirrors an episode in 2005, when Mr. Knight was shot in the leg at a party in Miami hosted by Kanye West before that year’s Video Music Awards. And Mr. Knight was in the car when the rapper Tupac Shakur was fatally shot in 1996.

Wiz Khalifa Concert Cancelled After Backstage Shooting

Wiz Khalifa‘s concert in Chula Vista, California Saturday night has been cancelled … following a shooting that broke out in the backstage area of his gig the night before.

A Ticketmaster employee tells us the show was cancelled this afternoon … but no further details were made available to them at this time — and the venue hasn’t picked up their phone.

As we previously reported … a man was shot to death backstage at Khalifa’s concert near San Jose Friday night.  One source tells us the man was shot at least 5 times.

Cops tell us they believe the shooter and victim had no connection to Wiz … which makes the concert cancellation slightly confusing.

Wiz says, “Due to a situation out of our control, tonight’s UTIOM show is cancelled. This was a senseless tragedy.  Violence is never the answer.  My prayers go out to the victim’s family.”
