Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors Slay One Giant, but Another Awaits

Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors took the Milwaukee Bucks' wildly successful system offline for a fourth straight time Saturday, earning the first trip to the NBA Finals in franchise history behind a 100-94 win in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals at Scotiabank Arena.

Now, having bested an opponent who dominated the league for a year, the Raptors are set to face one with a stranglehold on a half-decade. The Golden State Warriors await.

Earning the chance to dethrone the champs was difficult, even if Toronto closed its series against the Bucks in decisive fashion, serving four straight defeats to a Milwaukee team that hadn't lost three in a row at any point all year.

When Trainspotting author and former heroin junkie Irvine Welsh tweeted me to say I was a ‘moron’ for saying Game of Thrones was ‘over-hyped garbage’ without ever watching it, I decided to watch some of it, just to see if my instinct was wrong. So last night, I downloaded the finale, fast-forwarded through it for a bit, and then hit ‘PLAY’. It was everything I had assumed it would be, only even worse.

Christian comedian John Crist took a slight departure from his regular comedic skits to release a new song and video that is currently No. 2 on the iTunes Christian charts.

His catchphrase “Check Your Heart” has become a movement on social media and he has now capitalized on it with his song, “Check Your Heart,” featuring 1KPhew, Nobigdyl. and DJ Mykael V.

“They do it in the dark so you never know/ you should check your heart with a stethoscope/ Why you trolling? Check your heart/ stop that strolling check your heart/ take control and check your heart/ make it known and check your heart,” the song’s chorus says.

Dusty Marshall's new single, Art of the Enemy is hip hop infused with a pop twist.  This track speaks on the artists downward spiral into isolation and sin, the results of neglecting his relationship with God and his own family in pursuit of his dreams as an artist.   

Audio: Dusty Marshall "Art of the Enemy (ft. Davis Absolute, Jordan Copas, & Krystal Marshall)"

After spending the last few years feelin' like a G, Raging Moses is back with a brand new single which sets aside the chest pounding defiance of his earlier joint and substitutes it with a compassioned and measured style. 

 Good Life is out now on Illect Recordings.

Audio: Raging Moses "Good Life (feat. Darmea)"

Former President Barack Obama wants to beat the book sales of his wife Michelle’s bestselling memoir when he publishes his own and even dings her for using a ghostwriter, according to a new report.

Obama, who has already written two memoirs, is trying to finish his third, which will reportedly cover his political career from 2004 to the present. Following the smashing success of Michelle Obama’s Becoming, which has sold more than 10 million copies and could wind up the bestselling political memoir ever, Obama is feeling pressure to beat her, The Atlantic reports:

A medical professional who attempted to offer a Bible to a cancer patient was “rightly sacked” from her job, a court has heard.

British nurse Sarah Kuteh was fired from Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, Kent back in 2016 for talking to several patients about her faith in Jesus and even choosing to hand out Bibles.

According to the original complaint, after a patient stated that they were “open-minded” about religion, Kuteh quickly explained that “the only way he could get to the Lord was through Jesus.”

Those in the underground know Japhia and hail his first mixtape, Pages of Life: Chapter One, as a classic often compared to Illmatic from Nas. With his newest release, Westside Pharmacy, Japhia finds himself ready to be discovered by the masses. He's a Christian and doesn't hide from his beliefs (Japhia states "I saw the light when I was 17, man, that's the flyest thing I've ever seen. I've been a Christian in Christian Dior, ducking the triple six in Seven jeans" in "Lifey's Revenge"), but isn't looking to be called a "Christian rapper" or even to be closely associated with CHH.

Game of Thrones ended Sunday night after eight seasons. It was broadcast in 207 countries and territories and was one of the most popular series on television.

Because of its pornographic sexual content and extreme violence, I did not watch the show. But I believe culture-changing Christians can learn something important from it.

THINGS we found along the way



Sydney Wilson is #BlackGirlMagic indeed.

A teen just became the youngest student to ever be admitted to Spelman College.

Sydney Wilson from DeKalb County just celebrated her 14th birthday last week. Making this year one to remember, she is set to begin her freshman year at Spelman College this fall as the youngest student in the college's history.

Wilson opened up to WSBTV about her early interest in college, explaining that it all began in the second grade when she knew she was different than her classmates"I just stayed on my path," she said, adding that she overlooked the teasing over her smarts. "I didn't really feel like I needed to be popular... because, I mean, I like myself."

I think my face articulates how it felt to interview this local 14 y/o girl who just got into @SpelmanCollege Sydney Wilson is from Dekalb, she started taking high school classes when she was 10 & you don’t want to miss my exclusive story on her on Ch2 today

38 people are talking about this

She got the tools she needed when her parents enrolled her in Wilson Academy in Lithonia. It was there she began taking high school classes at only 10 years old.

Three years later, she applied to Spelman. The school later emailed her father, notifying him that she was accepted.

"So, he calls me in and he says, 'Look at the computer!'" she said, recalling the moment she learned she was about to become a Spelmanite. "So I looked at it, and I just melt. I was screaming and I was crying. I ran out to tell my family, and we took a bunch of pictures and posted it on Instagram and everything."

Though she's sure to be much younger than her prospected classmates at the all-female institution, Wilson is adamant that she live a normal college life — and that includes living on campus.

"I've been with the older kids all my life, so socially, I don't think it will be a problem for me," she said.

She plans to major in biology and eventually pursue medical research.
