Mac Miller Passes Away at Age 26

Mac Miller has died of an apparent drug overdose, according to TMZ. The 26-year-old rapper, who has battled substance abuse in the past, was found by police today (Sept. 7) at around noon in his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities were reportedly alerted by a friend who placed a 911 call from Miller’s home.

Last month, Mac released his latest album, Swimming, a 13-track LP that features guest spots from Thundercat, Syd and Snoop Dogg. Back in May, Mac Miller was arrested after being hit with DUI and hit-and-run charges.

Your new adventure awaits!

Arturo Montoya, 

My bradahhh! Man! I can't believe you're already dippin' out! I still remember the first time we met during Holiday Season last year. 

I won't write a lot, but, I do want to say one thing; THANK YOU. 

I always make sure to have people in my life that wants the best for me and for the people around me. So many of us don't get anywhere because we are constantly bombarded by people who don't help push us towards our goals. However, you are different. You want to "MPOWER" the people around you and I believe that is one of the greatest traits to have as a leader.

Never forget to keep climbing, to keep grounded and last but not least, to keep inspiring people.

ENJOY THE JOURNEY my friend!

YouTube Removes ‘The Nun’ Trailer for Being Too Scary

YouTube has removed a new promo for upcoming The Conjuring spin-off The Nun after deeming it “too scary” for viewers, IndieWire reports — news that will doubtlessly render the film a must-watch for any hardcore horror fan.

The six-second advert, which sees a volume icon decreasing before the titular nun bursts from the darkness, scared the crap out of unsuspecting viewers who caught it. The creepy AF jump-scare apparently violates YouTube’s “shocking content” policy for advertisements, with the clip playing as an ad before certain videos rather than being selected by the viewer.

Watch the video, which has been reposted, below, if you dare.

The Nun‘s narrative follows a Vatican priest’s investigation of a young nun’s suicide in Romania. The movie is helmed by indie director Corin Hardy (The Hallow) and stars Demián Bichir and Taissa Farmiga.

ENJOY! BWAHAHAHAHA!

Happy 63rd Birthday to the place that I can actually call my "second home", Disneyland.

Always an amazing and humbling experience to come up to Walt's apartment once in a while with my favorite peeps from The Walt Disney Company! 

I’am truly blessed that I can make Walt's dream a reality every day infront of thousands of guests.

DeMarcus Cousins says conversations with Warriors sealed decision to join

All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins, recovering from a torn left Achilles, has agreed to a one-year, $5.3 million deal with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, league sources told ESPN.

Joining the Warriors, who already have a staggering lineup of All-NBA talent, should allow Cousins enough time to comfortably recover from his injury prior to returning to the court next season.

A two-time All-NBA selection, Cousins, 27, became expendable in New Orleans on Monday after the Pelicans agreed to a deal with free-agent center Julius Randle.

Cousins, who averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists and shot 35.4 percent on 3-pointers last season in 48 games, told The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears he was confused and hurt that he had no offers, even from the Pelicans.

Cousins told Spears that he called his agent and they discussed various options, including the Warriors, who lost center JaVale McGee in free agency to the Los Angeles Lakers. Sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes that Cousins had narrowed his choices down to Golden State and Boston.

The Warriors, already -110 favorites to win the 2019 NBA championship at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, jumped to -150 favorites when Cousins' impending signing was reported.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the 2018-19 Warriors will be the sixth team in NBA history -- and first since the 1975-76 Celtics -- to have five All-Stars from the previous season.

LeBron James agrees to four-year, $153.3 million deal with Lakers

LOS ANGELES -- LeBron James' next NBA chapter will be set on the West Coast.

James will be playing for the Los Angeles Lakers on a four-year, $153.3 million contract. He will try to bring the storied franchise another championship.

The announcement was made through his agency, Klutch Sports Group, which announced the deal as $154 million.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst reported that the fourth year is a player option. It is the longest deal James has signed since inking a six-year contract with the Miami Heat in 2010. His previous three deals were three years or shorter.

James leaves his hometown team as a free agent for the second time in his career. Four years ago, James had stated his intention to finish his career with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Whether the four-time MVP and 14-time All-Star does that or not, he certainly has left his mark on his city.

James, 33, thanked his home area in an Instagram story. He wrote in text overlaying a photo from the Cavaliers' 2016 NBA title victory parade, "Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons. This will always be home."

He delivered the first championship to the sports-obsessed city in 52 years and did so with storybook gusto, helping the Cavaliers become the first team in NBA Finals history to rally from a 3-1 series deficit to win it all. The team he took down, the Golden State Warriors, had the best regular-season record in league history, at 73-9.

"Words do not express the meaning and the feeling this accomplishment brought to the people of Northeast Ohio," Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said in a lengthy statement thanking James. "None of this would have happened if LeBron James did not agree to come back home and lead the Cavaliers to the promised land.

James leaves the Cavaliers franchise as its leader in nearly every major statistical category: games played, points, rebounds, assists and steals.
