From the University of Purdue, The Carolina Panthers drafted Kawann Short. Short, a defensive tackle is a good second round pick up for the Panthers. His strengths are his huge wingspan and his ability to bat down passes. He will present a lot of problems for quarterbacks and their entire offense. Kawann is a disciplined and determined team player. It will be interested to see how well he fit into the system in Carolina and hopefully he will blossom as a great player in the NFL.
It appears that rap has become the most eccentric form of art ever. Classical loops by some of the old school producers like D-Jay Premiere, to the hard rock hits of Atlanta’s own OutKast. From the boisterous positive lyrics of Chuck D, to the melodic smooth tones of Thug Bones and Harmony. Hip hop has crossed many cultural lines, and it’s becoming more diverse every day. But when it comes to style of dress, is the hip hop community ready to except rap artist’s choice of clothes? Skinny jeans, equestrian riding apparel, chicken suits to robot get ups. Expression knows no guidelines,
but it sure has its limits to the public.
Another banger from Atlanta based producer, DJ Speedy. “Speedy you a fool for this one” a coined phase from Jeezy on the summer smash,” I Do This Sh*t,” produced by DJ Speedy. This guy goes all the way back to, “Stepping Out,” the smooth grooving guitar licks that accented the raspy voice of The Goodie Mob’s, Big Gipp. DJ Speedy is also currently working with the likes of : Wocka Flocka, Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, and Drake to name a few. Looks like Atlanta will continue to make it’s mark in the entertainment arena, thanks to talented brothers like Harvey Miller- DJ Speedy.
Last night, Jim Jones was maced and arrested after participating in a major brawl at a Connecticut casino.
According to TMZ, the Dipset emcee was leaving a Diddy-hosted party at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods when an unidentified man approached him and began talking some trash. The Capo tried to ignore him but was punched in the face, at which point he fought back in what he claims was self-defense.
Both men’s crews jumped in and the fight turned into an all-out brawl. Police arrived on the scene to break up the fight, and when they attempted to arrest Jones, he fought back. He was then maced and arrested by five cops.
Jones was later released on bond.
