Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton was arrested in California by the FBI on murder charges stemming from Atlanta GA. Crittenton left Atlanta on a one way flight to California in a attempt to evade law enforcement. At the time of Crittenton's arrest he was said to be with a male companion who was not taken into custody. The victim Julian Jones (mother of 4) was shot dead while walking with two men. Authorities believe that one of the two men the victim was walking with that night was the intended target. The shooting took place in retaliation of a robbery in April, where Crittenton was the victim. You may remember Crittenton from a incident between himself and Gilbert Arenas, when the two men supposedly pulled fire arms out on each other because of a unpaid gambling debt in a NBA locker room.
The long anticipated wait is over for all Madden football fans. Madden the most recognizable football video game ever was on store shelves at midnight Tuesday. Most Madden fanatics already have played the video game because they waited outside the store last night to be one of the first to it. Most electronic and video game stores across the country utilized late night store hours to accommodate customers who pre-ordered a copy of the game. Peyton Hillis beat out newly minted "$100 Million Man" (Mike Vick) during a contest, to be on the cover of the 2012 edition. Go get your copy today and let the trash talk begin.

It seems as though many were offended by ESPN's recent image of Michael Vick as a "white man." The image, recently removed from their website, was to represent the question posed... "What if Michael Vick was white???" As part of the story ESPN polled 44 anonymous, current NFL players. 58.1% players polled agreed that Michael Vick's penalty for dog fighting was "unfair", and if he were "white" 57.1% believed his treatment would have been different. Well...what if he was "white"... would he have served two years in federal prison for dog fighting and lost several million dollars in endorsements???

In a meeting with Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson Cam Newton (2011 1st overall selection) was told that the team preferred him not to have any tattoos or wear a afro. Its seems as though folks down south still believe in making racist comments and taking away a individuals natural rights. Now the owner of a NFL team should know better than to make those kinds of comments and advisement. Would Jerry Richardson have cared if his Quarterback and face of his franchise was from his own ethnicity???

Did Jay-Z hate on The Game??? This is now a burning question, after Game accused Carter of telling him to "find a new lane", after seeking advice from the rap king. Is Game even worthy enough to approach Jay-Z on any level??? Is it another publicity stunt for Game to promote his new album and vlog (video blog) "Next 48hrs with Game?" The Game has been trying to get back on the scene since "Curtis" dropped him. Maybe he should try the show "Blind Date" again... lol
After life changing events Michael Vick was given another shot at his dream. His dream is to be the best quarterback to win a Superbowl. That is also the dream of Eagles Nation (fans), who have been waiting long enough for a QB that could win the big one. Donovan McNabb deserves a lot of credit during his time here in Philadelphia but for whatever reason he couldn't get his team over the hump. The Eagles went "H.A.M." this off season with big name free agent signings that will most definently help their squad. Will Vick be the next motion picture film about a Eagles player (Invincible)??? If he wins a Super Bowl i believe he will.
Justin Timberlake has taken his acting career to the next level. Now starring in a feature film. This movie looks to have the makings of a must see. Check out the trailer

Do u believe that one job is no better than the next...? Well NBA star Delonte West does. Since the NBA currently is in a lockout Mr West feels he needs to stay employed. Apparently he has spoke of his plans on twitter from his CharleeRedz13 account with the words "Its official..pride 2 the side.. just filled out a application at Home Depot.. Lockout aint a game.." He also stated that a judge has denied his access to play over seas(probably still serving probation for his weapons charge back in Sept. 09) Talk about about stepping down..maybe even falling off(lol) when you think of what hes made from being a NBA star. He entered the league in 2004 and he has earned a cool $14million through contract signings. So does he really need the money?? With a global recession approaching seems like he wants to keep a jingle in his pocket. Maybe the guy has millions tied up in the Ponzi scheme(lol)..Maybe he was raised to work everyday no matter what ya profession you are in, which is respectable. While this act may seem strange, it does show that some millionaires have not forgotten that nothing in life is guaranteed.

Sony has made a power move by allowing the PlayStation 3 gaming console to broadcast live NFL games during the upcoming season. This is great news for football fans that live out of town and cannot watch there home team through their current television provider. With all good things there is always a catch. New customers not already using DirecTV will have to pay ($339.95) for the ability of streaming NFL games for the season. Existing DirecTV customers will need to pay $50 to view games through the system. It seems as if Sony is looking to take over the gaming industry with this powerful connection with the NFL. With the recent price drop of the PS3 console to ($249.99), Sony will surely capitalize this holiday season.
This American singer, songwriter and producer shall never be forgotten for her voice was strong and commanding. Her perspective on love was unconditional putting her in an elite class of rhythm and blues singers who sung to the heir of a man.
Born as Mary Christine Brockert(March 5, 1956 – December 26, 2010), Teena Marie was her stage name also known as Lady T which was given to her by her lover / mentor and label mate Rick James. Rick James help produce her first album titled Wild and Peaceful, which was very interesting because the album had no picture of her on it. So radio hosts along with the public assumed she was an African American. She just had to be with a voice as soulful as hers. Contrary to every ones surprise this Portuguese singer was able to fit into black soul music with no problem. Teena and Rick made many soulful callabos and on every track you could hear the passion between the two. Fire and Desire was a well known track that kept many people guessing on how close the two had become.
Square Biz" and "Ooo La La La" which were both big hits in her career.
My favorite song of hers which inspired the this post was Deja Vu where she takes the listener on a journey through her many times on earth through reincarnation.. She stated that this was her last time visiting earth, she believed she had washed away her sins in her past lives..At least that's what I got from it.. Please take the time to let the song play below as you read the article..We miss you Teena..."Wish You Were Still Here"

It seems like "Flash Mobs" are rearing their heads back into the Philadelphia Streets. Patrons of Philly businesses downtown are fearful after several people (residents and visitors) have been recently attacked by flash mobs. The flash mobs have been described by victims, as a group of "black kids," ages ranging from 9-18, that move in packs looking to harm innocent individuals. Several arrest have been made and because of recent attacks in Center and University City, Mayor Nutter has enforced a strict curfew. The curfew calls for kids 18 and under to be no where near the previously mentioned areas after 9pm on Friday and Saturday. The curfew will be enforced to create a sense of safety for visitors from here and other cities. Temple Professor and Daily News columnist Dr. Marc Lamont-Hill feels like the curfew is a violation of kids rights. Is enforcing this curfew "criminalizing our children" as stated by Dr. Hill, or is it more important to feel safe while enjoying your time in the city???

Even if u live underground, by now I'm sure you caught news on the turmoil in the US economy. The term Money was labeled as worthless in the title because the value of the dollar bill is decreasing as the US climbs deeper into debt. So as the fear factor rises, just what is person to do when everyone is panicking. Invest more! Yea I know sounds crazy, however history has shown that the market tends to bounce back at some time, so why not get in a cheap price when everything is on sale? So for those brave enough to take a chance in a world of uncertainty..I believe you have a few options for investing to take advantage of the Gold Rush. One is to invest in precious metal mutual funds. Mutual funds have a fund manager who invests your money into specific stocks and bonds, letting you diversify your investments without a lot of work on your part. Your investments will have less risk and volatility than they normally would if you were investing in coins and jewelry. Refer to http://cpacantonohio.com/wise-investors-pick-for-2011-precious-metal-mutual-funds for more information. Now for my investors who love excitement and they have to get on every ride at six flags(lol). Gold mining penny stocks(any stock under $5 per share) are buzzing and drilling right now..Since the stock market has been taking so many hits, investors run to a safer play in precious metals with gold leading the pack. A lot of mining companies who dig for the gold are undervalued and they are gaining attention with every stock market drop. Here are couple of penny stock websites you can visit. I recommend you joining the newsletter for weekly updates. http://www.pennystockalley.com/ and http://www.killerpennystocks.com/

New mixtape from Philly's own and Maybach Music Group member Meek Mill... After rising to the top on the illadelph rap scene, Meek has seen his fame soar after linking with Rick Ross and MMG. Mill has been on the grind to solidify his spot as a rising rookie MC in the "game." Meek was recognized as a "Fab 5" member(up & coming rookie MC's) this summer by MTV.
"Growing up I found it strange to see my grandmother putting on my fathers' pants, Surprisingly they fit"...
"Sensitivity" (some men felt he went too far lol). In this present day, at any given wine sponsored event, u can find a group of women attacking this topic. "He never shares how he is feeling"...Well ladies, I took the time to travel to all the men hangout spots that i am personally familiar with. I conducted a survey and the results revealed, that a good percentage of men are conscious of this very issue..Of course no one actually came out and said this directly (u kidding me)..The motives are hidden and it seems that most were taught to keep it that way, keeping their feelings tucked far away. Can a woman teach a man how to love? Hmmnnnn...One gentleman whose name will be left anonymous said, he wanted to show his woman more love and affection but he just didn't know how to stay consistent with the effort. Stated he was embarrassed to admit that to her because he feels that, for her to teach him how to love, he is less of a man, a part of him feels weak. Maybe there are some insecurities on the surface..Fear?..A mans pride and ego carries much weight on his image. To be fair, nothing will happen overnight and the actions must follow, if there is a want to change. Whatever the problem is for us men it seems like Musiq SoulChilds'song "Teach Me How To Love" found a way to express our thoughts and ask for help at the same time...This song below sums up how some men in the babershops, casinos, sportsbar and even traffic court(lol) really feel. Women listen up..

The "Broad Street Bully" is in trouble with the law again . This time the accused crime is Tax Evasion. Beanie pleaded guilty to the charges yesterday in federal court. Sigel is said to have made over $1.5 mil through 2003 to 2005, from music and clothing line royalties. The IRS claimed Beanie owes over 300k, in back taxes, during that time frame. With a long list of priors, Sigel is looking at another stint in the "bing."

Will the album live up to the hype or will it flop like the sales in the music industry???

This incident occurred on June 18th at 7th & Cecil B. Moore Ave in Philadelphia. Two men shot into a Septa bus with passengers. The incident steamed from a argument between a man on the bus who viewed a female rider hitting her child. A heated exchange took place between the two, after the man said "that is child abuse." Witnesses stated that the female then made a phone call and at the next stop men were standing at the corner. After the female exited the bus with her son, she ordered the men to "shoot that nigga." This video shows the exchange and different views of the shooting on the bus. No one was injured during this event.

With the Nfl lockout over and the season scheduled to begin on time, fanatics can now breathe easy. Fans across the country were able to take a sigh of relief once the NFLPA(players union) agreed to terms with the owners on a new CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement). The thought of no football this year did not sit well with the masses. The free agent period has been historic so far, with players coming and going to new teams. Also with trades and rookie signings occurring at a rapid pace, football has reclaimed its spot back into sports limelight.
