Allen Iverson is returning to Philadelphia to (presumably) finish his career as a 76er. After retiring last week following an 11th hour change of heart from former-suitors the Knicks, “The Answer” has come out of retirement to help his former franchise fill a guard spot on their roster. While many believed that Iverson and the 76ers left on bad terms that resulted in his trade to Denver in 2006, Lou Williams‘ 2-months long injury created a hole in the roster that was perfect for A.I. to fill. Iverson is a legendary 76er, holding multiple team records such as the highest scoring average (28.1), second most points all time (19,583) and most 3-pointers (877). He made the All-Star team seven times, led the league in scoring for times, and won the All-Star game MVP twice while in a 76ers uniform. Below is a highlight reel of Iverson in his rookie season against the Bulls, in what will forever be known as the Iverson–MJ game. He may have had no respect, but Iverson was as dope as any player ever with that cross over move. Enjoy.
Sadly Meek Mill was relatively quiet during the latter half of 2014 due to legal problems. But now that he's officially out and a free man Meek is looking to use 2015 to his advantage and with that he's dropping some new heat to tease fans. First he raps over Wu-Tang Clan's classic "C.R.E.A.M." instrumental for "Ice Cream" and second he's got a fire freestyle entitled "The Get Back Freestyle." Listen to both after the jump.
The rapper-producer duo of Freddie Gibbs (Gary, Indiana) and Madlib (Oxnard, California) could not have worked out better than it already has, as their debut collaborative album Pinata from earlier this year has reached a level of critical and fan acclaim very few hip-hop albums have seen in recent memory. And now their excellent "Knicks" cut gets a remix from the great Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, and Ransom. Damn, now that's a stacked line-up. Listen after the jump and be on the look out for Gibbs and Madlib's forthcoming Knicks Remix EP due out Nov. 18.
For those unfamiliar with GOODZ he is a battle rapper who has a bit of a history with Cassidy. GOODZ battled Cassidy years ago and like all battle emcees the two went back and forth over who won. And in recent news, GOODZ and Cass had a heated exchange on stage during Summer Madness 4. Word is, from those whom attended, GOODZ challenged Cass right on the spot but Cassidy turned down the battle instantaneously. Fast forward to a few days ago with Cassidy dropping "Mr. Chicken", a track aimed at a select few battle rappers. One of those battle rappers happened to be... you guessed it... his arch nemesis GOODZ. That has prompted GOODZ to fire back with "Bird N***a". Curious to hear what GOODZ had to say about Cass? Listen after the jump.
After a bit of a hiatus, Philly's very own Asaad made his return earlier this year by dropping his Flowers II mixtape.
