Drakes Responds To H.A.W Critics

As Drake is taking part in his second annual “Houston Appreciation Weekend” festivities – which include a tribute to Bun B, a celebrity softball game and the kickoff of his Jungle Tour – a certain Houston rapper, Sauce Walka, is not too pleased.

Instagram flexing and slamming Drizzy, Sauce accused the Drake of taking advantage of the city’s culture.

 “Nigga come down here, using our culture for lyrical content, nigga, and ain’t giving shit back but a family fun day and some money to some hoes he trickin’ on in the club, f–kin’ idiot,” This bitch ass nigga make music with artists from everywhere but Houston, but he throw H-Town.”

The controversy sort of begins and ends with Sauce Walka calling out Drake for not working with local Houston artists and capitalizing off the city. BUT the turn of events happened when an interview surfaced on YouTube with Sauce Walka, slamming the same culture that he accused Drake of jacking, and makes VERY contradictory statements regarding Houston artists.

 The interview gets EVEN worst when, Sauce states with a strong flex that he will not and I quote.."I dont want to work with none of these Houston artists, All you N---as suck".(See Video Below, starts at 3:30)


So we will see what becomes of this. WE will keep you updated.



Warriors hold off Rocket's Launch in First Game of Series

Courtesy of WashingtonTimes.com
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - After squandering a 16-point lead and blowing a chance to steal home-court advantage from Golden State, there were plenty of reasons for the Houston Rockets to be upset.
Now they must hope that they didn’t lose more than just Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. They have a knee injury to star center Dwight Howard to worry about.
Stephen Curry scored 34 points and outdueled James Harden down the stretch with Howard relegated to spectator status and the Warriors beat the Rockets 110-106 on Tuesday night.
“Game 1 slipped away from us,” Harden said. “We had several opportunities to win the game, didn’t happen.”
Howard hurt his left knee in a first-quarter collision with teammate Josh Smith. He tried to come back into the game in the second quarter but lacked his usual athleticism because of the injury and eventually left the game for good with a bruise less than a minute into the fourth.
“It was very painful,” Howard said. “I tried to play it off as much as possible but I couldn’t give my teammates what I need to give them. It was disappointing, frustrating. But it’s a long series.”

With Howard spending so much time on the bench, both teams used smaller lineups for much of the game and that played right into Golden State’s hands.
The Warriors went to it at first in the second quarter after Houston built a 16-point lead. Using the lineup with Draymond Green at center, Golden State closed the first half on a 21-4 run to take a three-point lead.
The Warriors went back to it at times again in the second half and were able to hold off a late charge fueled by Harden’s 21-point second half to win the opener.
The Rockets must wait to see whether Howard will recover in time to play Game 2 on Thursday night in Oakland.
“I’m just going to keep fighting,” Howard said. “It’s a long series and we’re not going to stop fighting. I was hurt tonight but hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow. As a team we’re going continue to fight and I’m going to continue to fight and push through it. Hopefully I’ll come back.”
Harden, serenaded with chants of “Over-rated!” from Warriors fans, mixed in a series of step-back jumpers and driving layups to help Houston even the score at 95-all midway through the fourth. He finished with 28 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists and four steals.
But the Warriors shut down Houston for long stretches, and Curry kept hitting shots. He connected on a 3-pointer and converted a layup to put Golden State up 108-97 with 2:01 remaining.
The Rockets never relented, though, with Trevor Ariza making a 3-pointer that trimmed the Warriors’ lead to 108-106 with 14.6 seconds to play.
Curry twice caught the inbounds pass, and the Rockets were forced to foul him both times. He hit both free throws to seal Golden State’s win.

Tom Brady Suspended, Patriots Fined

After Tom Brady was suspended without pay from the first four games of the 2015 football season, the New England Patriots quarterback received support from his fellow NFL players and celebrities, as well as some criticism from others on Monday, May 11.
An NFL-commissioned report released last weekfound that Brady was "at least generally aware" of the deflated footballs that helped his team nab the AFC Championship in January. Eventually, the Patriots' victory against the Indianapolis Colts would help Pats secure its win against the Seattle Seahawks this past February at Super Bowl XLIX.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who topped Brady and the Patriots in not one, but two Super Bowl victories, told the New York Post on Monday that he found no happiness in the situation.
"Tom has been a friend of mine," Manning told the paper. "I don't like to see anyone get suspended. I don’t like to see anybody get in trouble. I don’t like to see anything happen to the NFL or to a player or to another quarterback. In no way am I glad to see this happen."
Still, Manning said the punishment was "serious," even from the league. “Obviously the football, I think it is about integrity and you have to follow the rules. If someone’s breaking the rules I understand you’re gonna get punished for it," he said. “Obviously the NFL is serious about not messing with the integrity of the game, no matter big or little the issue is."

Fired for Deleting Monitoring App

A California woman is suing her former employer after she claims she was fired for uninstalling a smartphone app that let her boss track her movements 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
According to Ars Technica, which obtained a copy of the complaint, Myrna Arias worked for the Intermex wire transfer service when she says her boss, John Stubits, fired her for deleting the Xora (now ClickSoftware) job management app from her smartphone.
In the suit Arias claims that the app allowed Intermex and Stubits to track her movement whether she was working or not.
Arias said that when she and her fellow employees asked Stubits if he could track them when they weren’t working, Stubits, “admitted that employees would be monitored while off duty and bragged that he knew how fast she was driving at specific moments ever since she had installed the app on her phone.”
According to the suit, Arias didn’t have a problem with the app tracking her while she was working, but didn’t want it doing so when she was off. Doing so, Arias said, amounted to an invasion of privacy.
Xora, the app that Arias complained about, tracks and manages mobile employees while they’re in the field.
Arias said she is seeking payment for lost wages and punitive damages.
We reached out to Intermex, and will update this article when we receive a response.
The proliferation of smartphones and our always-connected culture have given rise to a number of privacy issues and complaints. Social media users continuously argue that Facebook and Twitter regularly invade users’ privacy, while similar allegations have been made against major smartphone makers and websites.
The difference here is that Arias was required to install an app on her handset by her employer, something more and more companies require their workers to do in order to protect corporate data stored on their smartphones.
Do you think Arias should have been fired for not using the app, as her suit alleges? Should employers be able to track workers when they’re not on the job? Sound off in the comments.

Drake gets Shaded by Madonna

Three weeks ago, Madonna surprised everyone by kissing Drake after making an appearance during his set at Coachella. Now, we’re guessing she’s regretting it, because she tried to throw shade at the OVO rapper. 

Recently, the music superstar was asked whether Drake was a good kisser, and the star replied with the Katie Perry line “I kissed a girl and I liked it”. Drake wasn’t feeling the kiss either Check out the clip below

Avengers Pull $187 Million

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Avengers are mighty, but not enough to beat themselves. The Marvel and Disney sequel earned a staggering $187.7 million in its debut weekend, making it the second biggest U.S. opening of all time according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.

Although "Ultron" was the only new film in wide release this weekend, it had some significant small screen competition: The Kentucky Derby, the NBA playoffs, and the Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao fight.
But "Avengers: Age of Ultron" failed to top the all-time record of the first film's $207.4 million debut in 2012.
Numbers could shift by the time Monday actuals roll in, but it seems the robust counter-programming may have blockaded another record for Marvel and Disney.
Still, for Disney's head of distribution Dave Hollis, the weekend was a "spectacular result" for the film, which cost a reported $250 million to produce.
Playing on 4,276 screens, the audiences for "Ultron's" debut were 59 percent male and 41 percent under the age of 25.
"We're in rare air here," said Hollis. "Having the second biggest opening weekend in the history of the movie business is always going to be something you walk away overwhelmingly happy with. The momentum of the brand for Marvel at this point is really something to take a step back and admire."
Marvel and Disney now boast the top three opening weekends of all time with "Avengers" and its sequel taking the top two slots and "Iron Man 3" in third place.
Hollis said this is "confirmation" that these films are "bringing a completely different kind of filmmaking to cinema. They're creating events and characters and building worlds in a way that is drawing the attention of huge crowds."
Rentrak's Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian agreed that the failure to top the first film is "in no way" a disappointment.
"You have to put this into perspective. Considering the level of competition this weekend in the sporting world, it shows that movie going holds its own against all other options," he said.
Also, while the first film's $207.4 million haul might just seem like a new benchmark to hit, Dergarabedian was quick to point out that opening above $200 million was "literally like breaking the box office sound barrier."

"Ultron's" future success is not in doubt either.
Instead of a new industry standard, a $200 million opening might continue to be an industry rarity.
"These other options were single events. 'Avengers' has a very long playing time. This is a journey to $1 billion and beyond," he said.
With $168 million in international sales this weekend, "Avengers: Age of Ultron" has grossed $627 million globally in just 12 days. The film has yet to open in China and Japan.
The rest of the top five was populated with holdovers, "The Age of Adaline," ''Furious 7," ''Paul Blart: Mall Cop," and the animated "Home."

The Fight that ROBBED the Nation

Courtesy of USATODAY
Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: the uber-bout that wasn’t. The so-called fight of the century was pay-per-snooze, a complete waste of everyone’s time and money — except in a boxing community now rolling in obscene amounts of cash, surely in disbelief they fooled us rubes again.
The six years that had passed since Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao should have originally fought might have built the anticipation for Saturday night, but it actually robbed us the possibility of a fight that might live up to the hype. Pacquiao was an old 36, with a pedestrian 3-2 record in his last five bouts entering the Mayweather fight. He faced a size disadvantage that even brilliant footwork couldn’t help. Mayweather was the hype machine. The money man. He’s the straw that stirs the drink, if you will. The Las Vegas millionaire was the undefeated champion at 47-0 and looking to break Rocky Marciano’s record of 49-0. He was everything a boxing star should be, with all the charisma and magnetism we expect from stars of the sweetest science. Floyd’s problem: He has none of the likability. 
ut we ignored all this because we wanted the fight to be something greater than it was. We attached meaning to it when this was clearly a payout fight, at best. (Floyd even admitted as much.) Oh, they wanted to win, but this hardly evoked the memories of Ali, Frazier, Foreman, Sugar Ray, The Hitman and Hagler fighting brawls that would land them in hospitals for belts that defined them as athletes. This was just glorified sparring.
The hype grew so big that some of the greatest minds in boxing convinced themselves that things would be different. That Manny’s reach would suddenly grew longer. That Floyd wouldn’t throw love-taps for most of the fight, content to play defense and let one or two power punches give him rounds. They thought that the “whoosh” made by Pacquiao’s missed punches and the crowd noise that followed would fool us into thinking this was a real bout, not robbery with the press of a PPV button. They were selling a lie and we were all too happy to buy into it.
You can only fool people so long. By the third round, it was clear Mayweather was going to be successful in playing defense for nine more rounds. By the seventh, it was obvious Pacquiao wasn’t going to be able to get him down. The announcement that Mayweather was the victor was an inevitability. Pacquiao was the loser, but he had company. All of us were too. Most had watched the classic end to the Spurs-Clippers Game 7 before flipping over to the fight. It had action, unpredictability and “did you see that?!” moments. Basically it was the exact opposite of Mayweather-Pacquiao. Oh, and it didn’t cost $99.95.



Young Thug Boo'd

Texans Release Andre Johnson

The Texans have released Andre Johnson, ending the star wide receiver's 12-year tenure in Houston.
The Texans previously had given Johnson permission to seek a trade, while the seven-time Pro Bowler asked the team to release him.
Johnson had two years remaining on his contract and would have counted for $16.1 million against the Texans' salary cap in 2015. Houston saved $8.825 million in cap space by releasing him before June 1.
"After exhausting all options of a possible trade, we informed Andre Johnson that he would be released today, Texans general manager Rick Smith said in a statement. "No player in the history of this franchise has represented the team, city and community in a more professional way. Andre is a Hall of Fame caliber player and we appreciate his years of service and contributions to our team."
After spending his entire career as a featured receiver in the Texans' offense, Johnson's role on the team was set to change. Rather than accept that, he requested to be traded or released.
Before the move Monday, Johnson told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he was "not worried" about being released.
"It's just the nature of the business," he told Anderson. "I'm not really worried about it. I will go somewhere else and play, and hopefully I can do well for them."
The 2014 season saw Johnson's production dip as second-year receiver DeAndre Hopkinsemerged. Hopkins notched his first 1,000-yard NFL season, while Johnson caught 85 passes for 936 yards.
In each of the previous two seasons, Johnson had caught more than 100 passes, for 1,407 and 1,598 yards.
"I have so much respect for Andre Johnson and what he's meant to this organization," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "Andre carried himself as a true professional and did everything that we asked him to do. Andre will go down as one of the best receivers to every play this game. We are thankful for what he has done for our organization and wish him well on his future playing career."
Johnson was the longest-tenured player for the Texans, having been drafted third overall in 2003, the expansion franchise's second draft. Since then, he has become the best offensive player in the history of a franchise that lacked stability at quarterback. In his time with the Texans, he has caught 1,012 passes on 1,599 targets for 13,597 yards.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Johnson is one of four players in NFL history to play for only one franchise and have 1,000 career receptions. The others are Marvin Harrison (1,102 catches for the Colts), Reggie Wayne (1,070, Colts) and Hines Ward (1,000, Steelers).
