SZA Is Benched From TDE’s Championship Tour After Injuring Her Vocal Cords

TDE’s star-studded Championship Tour has come to an abrupt — but hopefully only temporary — end for SZA.

On Tuesday (May 22), label founder Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith took to social media to explain SZA’s absence from the last few shows. He revealed that the CTRL singer has been pulled from the trek due to a vocal injury, writing that she’s been ordered to “rest her voice to prevent any permanent damage.”

“We’ve been monitoring her close and this is the reason she missed the Arizona and New Mexico dates,” he wrote. Top Dawg added that the singer will visit a doctor to determine whether or not she’ll be able to rejoin the tour, and promised to keep fans updated on her condition. He and SZA are also trying to find a way to make it up to fans who didn’t get to see her on the missed dates.

SZA retweeted Top Dawg’s statement but didn’t add any comments of her own.

The Championship Tour — which also features Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and more of the label’s talent — kicked off earlier this month in Vancouver. The arena trek is still slated to make stops in major cities like Atlanta, New York, and Chicago before wrapping in Pittsburgh on June 16. Here’s hoping SZA will make it back to the stage for at least a few of those dates.

LeBron James Wears “Oregon” Nike LeBron 2 For Championship Parade

words & images // Nick DePaula:

Earlier today, LeBron James celebrated one of the proudest and most iconic days of his life.

He led the championship parade for his hometown Cavaliers through the streets of Cleveland, and as we’ve seen over the last month throughout the NBA Finals, he wore yet another random original pair of his signature sneakers for the occasion.

After breaking out his “Rookie of the Year” Air Zoom Generation, white lasered LeBron III and an all red LeBron IV in recent weeks, earlier today James was spotted in the “University of Oregon” LeBron II. Made originally for the 2004-2005 Oregon Ducks basketball season, it’s one of the rarest pairs of player exclusive LeBrons ever made, with just under 60 pairs rumored to be produced of both the home and away colorways.

Check out my own personal home pair of the “University of Oregon” LeBron 2 in detail below, and congrats again to LeBron on the legacy defining Finals win.

Hip-Hop Had A Strong Connection To Last Night’s BCS Championship

auburn-card2

By Sean Lynch

The BCS era of college football ended in dramatic fashion on Monday night (December 6) as No. 1 Florida State defeated No. 2 Auburn at the hands of freshman quarterback, and Heisman Trophy winner, Jameis Winston. Winston’s two-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left sealed a win for the Seminoles. But Hip-Hop’s presence at the 2014 BCS Championship was the talk of Pasadena, California.

Auburn tailback, Tre Mason may just be a star to those lucky enough to catch more than a glimpse of the speedy running back on their television sets. But Mason has heavy ties to Hip-Hop, heavier than you would think. Tre Mason is the son of Vincent Lamont Mason Jr. whose stage name is DJ Maseo otherwise known as Plug Three of De La Soul. The Hip-Hop trio are pioneers in their own right, but last night the elder Mason was a proud father, as he found his son on the big stage.

The junior running back found himself in the running for a Heisman Trophy, turning in a remarkable season. Highlighted by a 164 yard game in a win over Alabama, only to follow that up an SEC Championship record-setting 304 yards on 46 carries against Missouri. Last night was no different as Tre carried the ball 34 time for 195 yards and a touchdown. Making his case for any questioning his contention last year for the Heisman trophy.

But Tre wasn’t Hip-Hop’s only connection to the Auburn Tigers. The offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, who just six years ago was running High School Sports The Magazine, used a very unique way of calling in plays to his Quarterback and team. Auburn’s offense play cards sported images of Jay Z, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Ron Burgundy for their plays. An unorthodox-method in college football but surely an unconventional way to mask the offensive scheme.

Take a look at some of Hip-Hop’s tweets from last night:
