Music Monday: All-Star Jam Session

drakeallstar

As we anticipate the over-the-top, celebrity-hop, slam-dunk-shock filled NBA All-Star Weekend, we anticipate the bigger picture; the spectacle of it all. And as DeMar, Terrence and Jonas hang headphones around their necks and select their ‘wheels up’ tracks for the trip from T Dot, the Big Easy stage gets ready for top tracks from the music world as well. All Stars on the court and All Stars on the mic, it’s a blend of both worlds on these competitive nights.

All-Star Weekend is incredibly surreal for all involved. This video featuring […]

In Order Of Buzzworthyness: Raptors Land Drake, All-Star Game

With the team on the tail end of their west coast swing, the social capabilities of the interweb have been keeping us all in one place, many of us staying up past our bedtime, maybe addicted to the high of the back and forth battles or the fourth quarter rattles. I am. And undoubtedly because the #RTZ crew isn’t going anywhere.

It has been a rock ‘n roll, roadie. After Pops read me the latest Raptors buzz over morning coffee yesterday morning, (post script opinions included), I conquered the […]
