  • Last Night Was Just Another Example: Stephen Curry’s Most Badass Crossovers

    Stephen Curry and Chris Paul, two of the league’s top playmakers, have gone at it each time their teams have met. Their battles are even better since their respective teams are division rivals, and this year Steph has clearly won the battle of the two. If you tuned into last night’s Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers game, then you saw the move that Curry put on Paul which sent him straight to the hardwood, but that was just one chapter in Curry’s dangerous NBA crossover story. In case you missed it:

    If you watch the move from another angle, Paul steps on Curry’s foot which may have lead to him hitting the floor after that crossover, but nonetheless it was a great move by Chef Curry.

    To add insult to injury, Curry’s Golden State Warriors edged out a victory against CP3′s Clippers 110-106, pushing their overall record to 61-13.

    In honor of last night’s soul-snatching, we’ve complied a list of Chef Curry’s top crossover’s. Let us know if you agree or disagree with our selection.

  • Gabe Roland Is On The Go With A Lot Of “Glow”–The Hot New Album For People In LOVE!

    Gabe Roland Is On A Mission To Bring LOVE Music Back With “Glow”

    And To Empower Disadvantaged Communities Who Need Love & Support

     

    Writer, producer and musical genius Gabe Roland is ready to take the industry by storm with his new album “Glow!”  Born and raised in Kansas City, Gabe began his career singing in church and at the age of 5 he learned to play the piano, guitar and the drums!  Since then he’s moved to Los Angeles to take his career to the next level and he’s had great success!  You can hear his music on various TV shows, Films and he’s worked with amazing artists like Anthony Hamilton, Marsha Ambrosius and Estelle to name a few.  We caught up with Gabe for all of our readers looking for love and this is what he had to say:

    Q—When did you know you wanted to become an artist?

    A—I’ve wanted to be an artist since I was kid.  I was always singing and writing songs (laughs), I was the kid that always got in trouble for making beats on the desk in class.  I remember when I was a child and I saw an old video of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”  I fell in love instantly with everything about it.  The dancing and singing was crazy.  The overall energy was something I knew I definitely wanted to be a part of.

    Q—Tell us about your upcoming album and current single?

    A—The name of the upcoming album is called “Glow,” the name of the project has undergone several changes because the sound of the project keeps expanding.  ”Lover’s Song” was the first single on the project.  It’s a song for anyone that’s been in the friend zone but didn’t necessarily know how to get out.  ”Lover’s Song” is the song that says today is the day I’m gonna let that person know how I feel and whatever happens next is whatever happens next.

    Q—One of my favorite songs right now is “Lover’s Song,” where did you get the inspiration for that song?

    A—Thank you.  That means a lot.  ”Lover’s Song” is based on a true story.  The inspiration for the song came from a moment in my life where I had a friend and for the longest we were just cool with no benefits.  One day I saw her and it was different.  It was like I didn’t see her as the homie anymore.  I saw her as someone I wanted to be with.  The friend zone is a very real place but if I never said anything, I would never know how they truly felt.  So I wrote “Lover’s Song” and played it for her.  She kissed me…I’m glad I wrote it.

    GabeRoland3sm

    Q—What do you hope your music does for others?

    A—I hope my music inspires.  I hope my music connects.  I hope that it becomes the soundtrack to a special moment that happens in a person’s life whether if it’s a major event or just a cool ass day where hanging out with your friends is the best thing on earth.  I want my music to give you butterflies when you hear it because it’s your favorite song.  I want it to make life better for the moment that a person is listening to it.

    Q—Tell us a few people in the industry you’ve worked with and tell us who you still want to work with?

    A—Off the top of my head, I’ve worked with Anthony Hamilton, Marsha Ambrosius and Estelle. This past October I performed with a band and we opened for Justin Timberlake’s Australia/New Zealand leg of his “20/20 Tour.”  After talking with Justin Timberlake at length about music, I would love the opportunity to collaborate with him.  Dude gets it and the dedication he applies to his craft is evident in the music he makes and the performances he gives.  I want to work with Kendrick Lamar.  He’s my favorite rapper and one of the few hip-hop artists that explodes every time he hits the stage.  Janelle Monae.  She’s incredible.  She’s in her own lane and she delivers every time she performs.  There’s so many, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Calvin Harris…the list could go on forever.

    Q—How do you currently give back?  How do you plan to give back once you’ve reached the top?

    A—I currently give back through charity organizations.  I spend time on Skid Row in downtown LA feeding and giving clothes to the less fortunate.  This is something that I will always give effort to because life is real and things like what I’ve seen in LA could happen any of us.  Being from Kansas City, there wasn’t a lot of opportunity for music artistry.  I want to start a music/fine arts camp where we teach local kids singing, songwriting, producing and performing.  Hopefully through exposure to something that appears so far away from them, the camp can encourage a new way of thinking and inspire more people to follow their dreams.

    Q—Would you be willing to support the Hip-Hop Summit Youth Council’s Hip-Hop Against Gun & Gang Violence Project to help improve public safety in our communities?

    HHAGGV001

    Hip-Hop Against Gun & Gang Violence project logo

    A—Yes I would be honored to!

    Q—What’s one piece of advice you can give to the readers about following their dreams or making it in the industry?

    A—My advice would be to not to give up.  There’s so many ways to get your music to the masses.  Find your niche and grow from there.  Don’t share your dreams with everyone because not everyone will see what you see for yourself.  It doesn’t have to make sense to them as long as it makes sense to you.  Study people that are successful in the ways you want to be successful. Learn what they did and apply the same habits.  Finally have patience with the process.  There’s no such thing as an overnight celebrity.  It takes work and patience but if this is something you want, you have to have patience.

  • Rising Hip-Hop Star Aubreyus Is On The Go With “Money On The Flo”

    Rising Hip-Hop Star Aubreyus’ Hot Hit Single “Money On The Flo”

    Is Taking Over Radio, While He Is Giving Back To The Community

     

    It sounds like Hip-Hop is ready for a new star!  Aubreyus’ debut hit single “Money On The Flow” is being played by radio stations all over the U.S. and in Europe and it’s creating a buzz online!  Celebrities like Nick Cannon are promoting his music on their social media pages so we finally caught up with the very busy Detroit native to get an update on his recent success and this is what he had to say:

    Q—When did you know you wanted to become an artist?

    A—It was when I was 16 years old after hearing a record from Tupac Shakur entitled “Hit ‘Em Up.”  I had something in which I would describe as an out of body experience.  I remember listening to that song and it literally felt like something had leaped from out of that radio and just took a seat within my soul, until this day it still feels like it never left.  ”Hit ‘Em Up” was one of the first rap records that had my full attention to the point that I actually wrote all the lyrics down and memorized every verse by heart.  Besides being influenced by artists like 2pac, Biggie & Nas, I also had an influence who lived in my household, which was my older brother Tony.  Tony would make beats on my father’s old music equipment then bring his neighborhood friends over to rap in a makeshift studio that our father had built in the basement of our home.  It was in this golden year that I decided that I wanted to become an artist.

    Q—Tell us about your upcoming album and current single?

    A—I have a mixtape that I’m currently working on entitled “The After Effect” that should be dropping real soon.  Also, I have a single out now that’s available on iTunes and everywhere else music is sold entitled “Money On The Flo,” which also features another Detroit native named Dej Loaf.

    Q—We love your single “Money On The Flo” that Nick Cannon actually retweeted, how does it feel to have major celebrities endorse your music?

    A—It feels great!  In my eyes it’s nothing but confirmation that I’m on the right path and that my talents are not going unnoticed.  Thanks to the internet my music is spreading faster everyday unlike the earlier years when you had to meet someone in person to give them a copy of your Demo in order for them to hear you out.  But thanks to the internet and sites like Soundcloud and Youtube this process can be a lot easier if your song begins to gain attention.  Now the big question is…if Nick Cannon heard “Money On The Flo,” who else has heard this song also and just hasn’t revealed themselves yet?

    Q—Congratulations on the radio success!  How does it feel to hear your music on the radio?

    A—It feels great to know that my hard work is being played on the radio where thousands upon thousands of listeners can hear me at any given time.

    Q—What do you hope to accomplish in the industry?

    A—To make a change in someone’s life through my music…to be remembered..

    .to finish with the same work ethic in which I started, “hungry” if not greater.

    Q—Tell us a few people in the industry you’d like to work with?

    A—There is really a lot of Great talent out there that I would love to work with but if I had to name a few off the top of my head I would say Kanye West, T.I, Big Sean & Drake.

    Q—Giving back is important to The Source Mag.  How do you plan to give back once you’ve reached the top?

    A—I plan to give back by not only being a Mentor to my community and my city, but by also being a Mentor to the world through my everyday actions in life.  By giving back financially to help further the public education system in Detroit, and also contributing to the rebuilding of my city.  Book by Book, Brick by Brick.

    Q—Would you be willing to support the Hip-Hop Summit Youth Council’s Hip-Hop Against Gun & Gang Violence Project to help improve public safety in our communities?

    A—Sure!  I am all for being a positive influence for the youth in our communities.  If there is anything I can do to prevent the shooting… stop the violence…or help the next generation into making better choices…I’m all for it!

    Q—What’s one piece of advice you can give to the readers about following their dreams or making it in the industry?

    A—Actually I have several…lol consider it a survival kit. Put God First.  Always follow your spirit (your first mind).  Pay attention to how you feel when certain decisions are made (this key sense can lead to a blessing or pure chaos).  Don’t be afraid to be yourself and never get caught up in what other people think.  Never be afraid to seek council but only agree if you truly understand and that’s what you want (Happiness is key).  Learn as much about the game as you can and most importantly you will never know if you never try.

  • ‘The Comedy Central Roast Of Justin Bieber’ Was The Network’s Third Highest Rated Roast Ever

    The hotly anticipated roast of the Canadian pop star reached dizzying heights of popularity on TV and online.

    Variety reports that the roast, hosted by Kevin Hart, drew 4.4 million viewers in the key 18-49 demographic on Monday night (March 30), according to Nielsen SoundScan. That’s better than the roasts of Donald Trump (3.48 million), James Franco (3.1 million), and Roseanne Barr (2.64), but trailing behind the roasts of Jeff Foxworthy and Charlie Sheen (6.43 million).

    The dressing down of the infamous singer also fared extremely well on social media, being responsible for 40 trending topics throughout the night and generating three million posts across Facebook and Twitter. Roasters on the docket included Shaquille O’Neal, Martha Stewart, Jeff Ross, Snoop Dogg, and Hannibal Buress.

    Comedy Central is bound to be rerunning this special until it’s been permanently ingrained in our minds, so be sure to check it out on Comedy Central if you missed it last night!
