Has Rock-N-Roll Always Been Apart Of Hip-Hop Culture?

Yes Hip Hop has always been apart of the Rock culture! Rock and Rap song were some of the best ever made still today! For an institution that is dedicated to immortalizing rock and roll’s greatest heroes, there are many inductees in there who are not quite typically thought of as rock artists.

You’ve got Grandmaster Flash, Run-DMC, Miles Davis, Madonna, and Tupac in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The confusion behind these inductees lies not with the quality of their work, but rather the categorization of it.

There are four other artists who have been nominated but have yet to be inducted—Afrika Bambaataa, LL Cool J, Eric B. and Rakim, N.W.A—and four more groups who have been considered for the ballot but who have not yet been nominated—Boogie Down Productions, De La Soul, the Sugarhill Gang, and the Treacherous Three.

Hip-Hop Hall Of Fame Coming Soon

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has been a staple in Cleveland since 1993, however, debate has consistently raged about hip-hop, and it’s place in the Rock Hall instead of it’s own juncture, especially after the induction of the Beastie Boys, Run-DMC and Public Enemy.

Nevertheless, the confusion has spawned positivity, as it has become apparent that plans are developing to give the genre its own commemorating location. The project, according to the New York Daily News, is set to launch in 2015 with two separate developments, one in Harlem and the second in times square, both giving homage to hip-hop and offering the genre’s own Hall of Fame. 

The museum has already caught the attention of big name artists like Eminem, Outkast, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube and more, all offering memorabilia from tours and other avenues to donate to the hall, which will officially open sometime in 2017. Stay tuned for more as this develops as this will certainly cause a stir in the music world.

Shaquille O’Neal And Allen Iverson Nominated For The Hall of Fame

The larger-than-life 7-foot-1 big man and the ultra-quick 6-0 point guard lead the 10-member Class of 2016, which was announced Monday. Much like during their playing careers, there was no stopping Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson when it came to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

O’Neal won four NBA championships and an MVP award and is in the league’s top 10 in career scoring. Iverson won four scoring titles and was the league’s MVP in 2001, when his 48-point performance for the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals handed O’Neal’s Los Angeles Lakers their only loss of the most dominant postseason in NBA history.

Iverson and O’Neal will be enshrined along with Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming, former WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes and Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf. Longtime NBA referee Darrell Garretson, coach John McLendon and former stars Zelmo Beaty and Cumberland Posey will be enshrined posthumously.

O’Neal is one of four players to win three Finals MVP awards, joining Michael Jordan (6), Tim Duncan (3) and Magic Johnson (3). He was one vote shy in 1999-2000 of becoming the first unanimous MVP in NBA history as Iverson received the only other first-place vote.

Izzo has reached seven Final Fours and earned 524 career victories since becoming the head coach at Michigan State in 1995. In 2000 he guided the Spartans to the NCAA national championship with an 89-76 win over Florida.

Ming, the No. 1 overall pick by the Rockets in 2002, didn’t have the numbers of some other great centers, but he bridged a path for the NBA to China. The third Chinese player in league history was an eight-time All-Star before injuries shortened his career, as he missed 159 out of a possible 164 games in the last two years in the NBA. Ming was a first-team all-rookie in the 2002-03 season. In his first game against O’Neal, he blocked his first three shot attempts in the first three minutes of the game.

Swoopes was the first player signed by the WNBA. She went on to win three MVP awards and four championships in the league, but it was her 47-point performance in leading Texas Tech to the 1993 NCAA championship that many think of first when talking about one of the greats of women’s basketball.

Allen Iverson Teams Back Up With Reebok

The NBA Hall of Famer shared a series of images of him taking meetings with Reebok officials and designers, including Vice President of Classics and Entertainment Todd Krinsky. Although Iverson didn’t confirm the development of the Answer 15, he caption suggested that a new design team is working on I3 Legacy product, including sneakers. Back in 2001, Iverson signed a ‘lifetime’ deal with the shoe company.

Allen Iverson’s shoe line was resurrected with the release of Reebok Answer 14 in 2014. Since then, there’s only been a release of retro products with alternative color ways of his beloved signature, the Question. AI took to Instagram to drop some good news.

Allen Iverson is expected to make a return to Ice Cube’s Big3 league, so you can probably expect to see him sporting his I3 footwear in 2018.

University Of Kansas Apologizes To Snoop Dogg

The University of Kansas apologized for its risqué Late Night at the Phog event in which rapper Snoop Dogg performed, stripper poles were wheeled onto the Allen Fieldhouse floor and fake money was shot over the heads of prospective recruits.

The Jayhawks instead got an R-rated performance for their annual basketball kickoff and another big headache as they deal with a high-level NCAA infractions case tied to recruiting.

Kansas has been putting on Late Night for 35 years, but what began as a scrimmage to celebrate the start of basketball practices has turned into a night of skits, music and entertainment. That’s included big-name rappers in recent years, such as Tech N9ne, Lil Yaghty and 2 Chainz.

None of them brought the cache of Snoop, though. The 47-year-old rapper and well-known sports fan was expected to take the minds of players, fans and recruits off the specter of the NCAA investigation and turn attention fully to a season in which the Jayhawks are expected to be title contenders.

The school even promoted his appearance with a social media video of Hall of Fame coach Bill Self wearing a gaudy chain and Adidas shirt — the focus of the NCAA inquiry has been on the apparel company’s dealings with recruits, including whether officials paid them to steer them to its schools.

The school received a notice from the NCAA late last month alleging three severe violations tied to recruiting and a responsibility charge leveled against Self. Also cited is a lack of institutional control within the program.

The document does not detail what Kansas is accused of doing. The program is among the most prominent in an NCAA inquiry into a pay-for-play scheme that began with an FBI investigation into the apparel company Adidas.

Darren Sharper Sentenced To 18 Years

Former NFL All-Decade Team Safety Darren Sharper was sentenced to 18 years in prison on Thursday, August 18. The 40-year-old fallen star was handed down the judgement following U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo's rejection of a plea deal that would have allowed for the Virginia native's release after nine years. Sharper plead guilty to conspiracy and distribution of Alprazolam, Diazepam, and Zolpidem with the intent to commit rape, back in March of 2015.

The charges that lead to a conviction stem from up to 16 women coming forward to accuse Sharper of drugging, and in some cases, sexting them on separate occasions between October 2013 and January 2014. Before Sharper admitted to the crimes, prosecutors were primed to go to court with the case, having discovered a trail of incidents across Arizona, Nevada, Louisiana, and California. "They didn't deserve anything being a part of my heinous decisions," Sharper cried, having just learned of his fate for the next two decades. "I still don't know why I lived my life right for 38 years, and then I took this path."

Through 14 seasons with the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and New Orleans Saints between 1997 and 2010, Sharper established himself as one of the best defensive players in the game. He was a Super Bowl champion [2010] and a 5-time Pro Bowler, who at the time of his retirement held firm at number six on the all-time interceptions list. In 2016, Sharper made the Hall of Fame ballot. It remains to be seen whether the committee will at some point elect to vote him into the Hall, considering the fact that off-field behavior is not supposed to be taken into account in the process.

OJ Simpson Soon To Be Released

A reputed legal analyst from Sports Illustrated and a University of New Hampshire law professor have both reported that they are confident O.J. Simpson will soon see the light of day, projecting that he will be released from prison come summer time.

"He's the kind of person who gets paroled. He has done a significant amount of time and, by all accounts, hasn't caused any problems [while in prison]," says Vegas criminal defense attorney Daniel Hill, who agrees with assessments made by SI's Michael McCann and U of NH professor Jon Wertheim.

Simpson, 70, has been serving time at Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Center since 2008, when he was convicted of a burglary which involved him attempting to take some of his playing days memorabilia from the Palace Station Hotel-Casino the year prior. The Hall of Fame NFL running back would be found guilty on 12 counts of charges ranging from conspiracy, to burglary and robbery, to kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon. The crime would land him a 33 year sentence.

Should Simpson earn an early release, he'd no doubt have to comply with a set of conditions that includes regular meetings with a parole officer, regular searches of his home and vehicles, and the need to acquire permission to leave his home state.

Simpson's release is dependent upon him proving that he would be a low-risk threat to society. Such a determination is made following a comprehensive review which weighs his performance in 11 concrete areas, including disciplinary write-ups, history of drug or alcohol abuse, and prior probation or parole revocation.
