As if we needed more reasons to love Charles Barkley, it turns out he knows all the words to Kanye's iconic verse to "N****s In Paris" (as did the House of Blues: Chicago crowd that I captured last week at Lupe's Tetsuo & Youth Preview Tour).
Enjoy this quick video of the Auburn alum going gorillas over his team's thrilling victory over Alabama! (h/t Deadspin)
And since you're here for the funny moment, also enjoy a little "Afternoon Delight" as the Anchorman cast put on quite a fantastic impromptu performance for what I'm hoping is the funniest movie all year December 18th.
Yup, even the man himself 2Pac was a struggling, upcoming artist at one point in his career. And now what's surfaced is the representation of that: his first ever business card.
As you can see, the "Lyrical Lunatic" was also promoting that he's national chairman of the New Afrikan Panthers, a member of Digital Underground, and as confirmed in the video about the business card below — he wanted to call his debut 2Pacalypse Now at the time (which later came to fruition). Any more questions for 'Pac? Well, just hit his pager.
I know I would have just to give him some better design, which would have surely propelled me to inner circle status. If only...
Happy Friday! And I'm starting with something amazing here: the fifth fan in OKC who has drained a $20,000 half-court shot at halftime. And the second just this week, ha! It's a silly thing that the NBA community has picked up as it doesn't get better than this high school teacher Brad Brucker making the shot, and getting some dap from Jay Z.
Oh yeah, Jay Z and Beyonce were in the house... in Oklahoma City, of all places. Why? Probably to see his star client of Roc Nation Sports in Kevin Durant. Or, actually, Charles Barkley's reasoning sounds more correct.
Last night was a special night of television. It is anytime that David Blaine takes over with a brand new special because on one hand, these aren't even a yearly occurence and on the other hand David Blaine might be a completely different species.
And let's just say I throughly enjoyed replicating the celebrity reactions like that of Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston & Aaron Paul, Katy Perry, Jason Sudekis & Olivia Wilde, Will, Jada Pinkett, Jaden, and Willow Smith... and even Kanye West and Woody Harrelson.
Kanye & Woddy + the Smiths can be seen above as Blaine kicked off the special by sticking an ice pick through his hand and drawing no blood. Everyone's reaction is great, but somehow not as great as this...
More highlights can be seen on Grantland via Rembert, who made the same connection to the "#AzizThesis" (his hashtag) as I had while watching the special. Cool tricks, outrageous reactions, and even stonefaced David Blaine post-trick are all absolutely phenomenal. Hope you caught it, or you can watch it in full on this stream.
Thank you, SNL for showing us that we need a Kanye West / Kim Kardashian talk show in our lives. Props to Jay Pharoah for another on point impression. The show's host, Lady Gaga, also appears in the sketch. Watch and enjoy ICYMI.
Any international airline because they actually treat you like you’ve paid for a service. They even give you pajamas to wear. One time I flew to Abu Dhabi to be part of that short film Kanye did. Everyone from G.O.O.D. Music was there, and Pusha T was on my flight back. I changed into my jammies right away—in life, in general, I like being comfy—and then I saw Push. So I walked by him and was like, “Push, you going to change into your jammies?” And he just goes, “No.”
Which I totally understand. My image is not really getting fucked up by me slipping into some jammies. If anything, you'd expect me to be in jammies. But if Pusha T got into jammies, I would've been shaking my head: "You can't do that man, you're Pusha T! My Name Is My Name? What about that time you were in jammies? Your Jammies Are Your Jammies."
And as another hip hop related bonus, Aziz names his favorite music video ever, and the reasoning is great. I can only imagine him telling this to Kanye and saying something like, "Kanye, YOU never parachuted into a party!"
Jagged Edge's "Where the Party At" because it starts with them parachuting into the party.

Oh, and here's Kevin Durant and Aziz Ansari last nite. KD says, "Can't get no more free randy... instant bros!"
That's Nelly, Nelly's friend, Justin Bartha (of National Treasure x The Hangover fame) and his significant other.... aaaannnnd Larry David. This photo was too funny that I had to pass along. Classic Larry David, and as Brinson notes, "Larry David's sock game is so tight". Couldn't have said it better myself. OK, enjoy the rest of your day.
C'mon, it's Monday. We need something to laugh at. For that, we turn to Ron Burgundy who met Eminem at the MTV EMAs this weekend, moments after Em won the Global Icon Award. What ensues is a lovely, awkward, and random interview. More Ron can be seen below with Katy Perry.
Eminem posted this image to prove it was him answering questions on FB. The internet quickly posted this MEME.
Yesterday afternoon, Eminem hopped on his Facebook page to do a Jay Z style Q&A with his fans now that the new album MMLP2 is in stores. Em answered a few questions on the album, but mainly channeled his inner Slim Shady to troll some of his fans. I was following along at the time in fact, and shared a few questions to Maks at the office. Now, we have a compilation of Shady's best answers. This was fun.
