Chris Brown vs Frank Ocean Brawl- Who Started It? [VOTE]


I knew something was missing when 2013 started.  In the 21st century, what would any year be without Chris Brown and new drama to set it off?  TMZ reported that Chris Brown and Frank Ocean were involved in a brawl at a recording studio in LA this weekend.  Like Breezy’s run-in with Drake inNew York last year, the instigator of the fight is currently a mystery, as both sides are pointing at each other.

There are previous reports of the two R&B singers having issues with each other, however, with a track record like Breezy’s and the courts watching him, would he really intentionally put himself at risk again?  And Frank, despite rolling with one of the wildest groups in the industry right now, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, does not have a reputation for confrontations like this- but does that mean we should put it past him?

So what do you think- is Breezy to blame, or did Frank Ocean decide to make some new waves to kick in 2013?

Should Illegal Firearms Be Banned In America? [Poll]


According to CNN, as many as 26 people were killed in the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. Unfortunately, this is just one of many instances of gun violence in america that could have been avoided, but how? Could we have avoided the movie theater shooting in Colorado? How bout the Oregon mall shooting, which took place earlier this month, could have have stopped that from happening?

Many believe that America’s gun laws are way too lax. People can buy guns, including automatic weapons at gun shows all across the country. Illegal firearms are in our inner-cities as well as our suburbs, but are they the reason for all the deaths? Should Illegal Firearms Be Banned In America?

Metta World Peace Discusses The Elbow


We’ve all seen the infamous and game-ending elbow Metta World Peace laid on Oklahoma City’s 6th man James Harden.   It came following a very good play Metta made overpowering OKC’s star player Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka.   My question is, was it really intentional.    Personally, looking back on it now I don’t believe it was.   I know firsthand the emotion that comes with basketball, OKC and the Lakers are the two top teams in the NBA’s Western Conference and the entire game was intense.  In that moment, I don’t believe World Peace knew Harden was even there, let alone that he acutally elbowed him.

Recent audio was posted to ESPN with him saying, “I didn’t realize….I didn’t even think that I hit him…. I didn’t even know why Ibaka came towards me. ”   His first reaction after seeing the video was “My goodness…”  The NBA has responded to this incident with a 7 game suspension.  With that being said, do you think the elbow was intentional?
