Gucci Mane Is Officially Getting A Biopic

One of the most influential rappers of the last decade is finally getting the biopic he deserves. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane is being turned into a movie. Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment are coming together to adapt The New York Times bestseller to the big screen.

In September, Gucci Mane sat down with MTV News correspondent Gaby Wilson to discuss what inspired him to write an autobiography.

“My engineer suggested it, you know, when I was away. And then it was just something I guess to kill time. When you’re in prison, you don’t got nothing but time. You know what I’m saying? I just reflect on my life, and I just started writing. Next thing I know, 30-40 pages was down, and I was off and going.”

Later, Gucci revealed what he learned about himself during the writing process.

“I learned that I can be more than a rapper. I learned that I really feel I have a future in writing books if I wanted to do that.”

The only question that remains is who will play Radric Delantic Davis? Will Gucci pull an Eminem in 8 Mile and play a version of himself, or will an unknown with a heart of Guwop gold mesmerize us?

Breaking: Nick Young Officially Signs With Adidas

words // Nick DePaula:

Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young has officially joined the adidas family, becoming the newest member of the brand’s growing endorsement roster of NBA players.

Young, a longtime Kicks On Court staple known for wearing a variety of iconic sneakers in games, had worn Nike in college at USC and since he was drafted 16th overall in 2007.

After negotiating through the start of the NBA season this fall, the restricted sneaker free agent came to an agreement on a multi-year deal with adidas last week, still leaving a window of time for Nike to match the deal.

Just yesterday, Nike officially declined to match the offer sheet.

To celebrate the new partnership, Swaggy P took the court tonight in Houston and laced up the launch colorway of the Yeezy Boost 750. Twitter is on fire right now, as you’d expect.

Stay tuned for more Kicks On Court sightings of what’s to come from Nick Young, and next week, we’ll also be highlighting all of the players around the league that have switched brands this season.

Nike Kobe X Officially Unvieled


The season may be over for Kobe Bryant, but his gifts to the game go far beyond him playing on the court. Unveiled officially today, the Nike Kobe X sees the latest chapter in his storied signature series.

Designed by the great Eric Avar, the mastermind behind some of the most memorable models for Kobe, Penny, GP and countless others, the Kobe X is based on transparency and functionality, showcasing a multitude of performance-driven tech in the most minimal of manners.

The model’s midsole features Lunarlon cushioning with Nike Free inspired grooves to aid natural motion. On top of that, a heel Zoom Air unit enhances the responsive ride. This is all visible with a clear outsole that Nike is dubbing as its best traction system yet, denoted by nodules that mimic the treads of performance race car tires.

Continuing to evolve on the upper, the Kobe X debuts an open-weave textile that draws from the pattern and strength of sharkskin. A mesh bootie caters to comfort and ventilation, with nubuck taking to the tongue. Lastly, nods to Kobe’s Achilles injury are denoted on the left heel. This also serves as the muse for the introductory “5 AM Flight” colorway, which corresponds to his Vine of an early morning jump off a 40-foot diving platform, signifying his perseverance and ability to face fears head on.

Check out detailed photos of the Nike Kobe X “5 AM Flight” below and look for this colorway to launch on February 7th.
