Brooklyn Nets Logo...


Previously I Showed Jay-Z in a Brooklyn Nets T-Shirt... Now I Have The Official Logo and The Alternate Logo For The Brooklyn Nets !


Hov, who designed the logo himself, settled on a black-and-white color scheme and a classic, simple look.

During a press conference earlier today, CEO of Nets Basketball Brett Yormark was quoted as saying, "Today, we launch the next chapter. Boy, this feels good. We've been waiting seven years to get to this point."

Merchandise sporting the team's logo is already available on NJNets.com, while additional items can be viewed at the team's Facebook page including hats and tees.

Hasan Salaam - Miss America [Video]


The third single off of Hasan Salaam's "Music Is My Weapon" project, “Miss America” addresses the harsh realities of the past and the present actions and policies of the United States. The video depicts how apathy and lack of action by the masses allows these modern day injustices to exist. It is our duty to not stand by and remain silent. Change begins with us.
 ALL profits from the sale of Hasan’s EP are being used to fund a school, clean water well, and medical clinic in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa. The school has already been completed, and construction of the well is underway.

Mikkey Halsted x Lupe Fiasco “Gone”.

Due to the ongoing violence in their city of the Chi and across America, Mikkey and Lu have released this inspiring track to address the issue. Mikkey Halsted says:
In light of “37 SHOOTINGS, 46 VICTIMS & 9 MURDERS” during Chicago’s first ‘warm’ weekend, the Trayvon travesty, 6-year old Aliyah Shell, and in honor of my cousins Ismail & Malik that were gunned down last summer…I felt as though this was the time to drop this song. Shouts to Lupe for helping me paint a vivid picture of what goes on everyday in Chicago and every other ghetto in America. Also, shouts to David ‘D.A.’ Doman & Jim LaVigne for providing us the perfect canvas to paint upon.
Special Dedication to Blair Holt and the hundreds of CPS students lost to senseless violence.
WE CAN NO LONGER WAIT FOR OTHERS, SEEMINGLY UNAFFECTED BY OUR ISSUES, TO SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS FOR US. SPEAK OUT AND SAY SOMETHING, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, DO SOMETHING.
