Nicki Minaj is going to be in a commercial for a pink speaker in conjunction with the Beats by Dre brand, called the Pink Pill, probably because it looks like one. Hopefully, the Pill gets as loud as your favorite rapper's favorite substance so that Peter Rosenberg can blast "Starships" at the volume that he truly desires. The commercial appears to also feature Deray Davis, who you may recall from the "Through the Wire" music video (where he raps "without an arm I spit!"), MTV's Wild 'N Out, or either of the Barbershop films. If you never get tired of Nicki's accents, this video is for you. Enjoy.

During last year’s Let Me Explain tour stop in Toronto, comedian Kevin Hart challenged the hometown hero in Drake to a paintball competition. The always competitive Hart had a team of guys ready to go against Drizzy’s October’s Very Own crew.

As usual in his Day in the Life vlogs, Kevin Hart takes us through his preparation and eventual loss in the end. Enjoy.
Last night was a special one for the Los Angeles Lakers franchise. Prior to the team's game against the Dallas Mavericks, the Lakers retired the No. 34 jersey worn by Shaquille O'Neal from 1996-2004. The ceremonies kicked off with a video message by Kobe Bryant, who luckily didn't refer to him as "Four" but did call Shaq "the most gifted physical specimen" he's ever seen play the game of basketball. Then, Phil Jackson took the mic and added some light-hearted commentary that included what he called "some indelible images" that he'll never forget. Yeah, we'll let the Zen Master explain what he's talking about there. After Jackson's speech, Jeanie Buss went to center court and unveiled O'Neal's jersey hanging in the rafters. But enough of us summarizing the moment, just check it out. Also click here for the extended version of Shaq's thank you speech, which includes a mention of Kobe and their rocky relationship. Enjoy.
