This video came out a while ago, but I forgot to check for it after seeing the trailer first. I'm personally not a big fan of music video trailers.

This past Tuesday the Los Angeles Lakers received these fresh rings for winning the 2010 NBA Championshop last season. The ceremony before their game against the Houston Rockets was really dope, in which each player introduced one another to receive their rings.
What's unique about these rings is that they contain a piece of the ball from the historic Game 7 battle against the Boston Celtics last season. They were crafted by jeweler Jason Arasheben of Beverly Hills, and are encrusted with 16 diamonds featuring each individual player’s face.
In addition to receiving their rings, the Lakers, after a rocky start, won a close and competitive game. So they have started the season off on the right foot at 1-0 on their quest for a 3Peat. Check the video below of the ring ceremony.

Today is the 15th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality. It was formed by the October 22nd Coalition. In commemoration for today, it is advised to wear black to show your support. There are currently rallies and vigils going on right now, and will continue into the evening all across the nation. Please click here to find one near you.
Peep the video below of Pharaohe Monch performing the song, "Clap (One Day)", which is in tribute to the many victims of police brutality.
These are words from Pharaohe in reference to his song:
"Instead of protect and serve, police often escalate situations, as with the cases of Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, or Aiyana Stanley Jones, and hundreds more who fell victim to police violence. I wrote this song to express my frustration, as well as raise the question of how our communities can create safety and prevent violence, with out relying on police."
"My brother is a police officer so I know there are some well intentioned people wearing blue uniforms. But the issue of police violence is much bigger than good cops and bad cops, it comes down to a broken system which criminalizes our communities, and must be completely transformed."

One of the truest spitters around, Bambu is linking up with DJ Muggs, one of the illest in the beat game. I haven't heard an official date yet, but the mixtape, Los Angeles, Philippines, will be coming soon.
In the joint, "Pow Wow Drums," Bambu gives an education on SB1070, Arizona's controversial immigration law. And in "Smoke Smarter" he embraces herb smoking, but encourages heads not to let it take over your life and get in way of the things you need to do. I'm looking forward to the mixtape. Check for it!
