NBA's Iman Shumpert Takes His Rap Talents To The Stage At Nema's Boom Boom Room In NY

Last week (Tuesday, June 5th) Nema Kamar, one of New York's top event producers, put together an extraordinary talent showcase with 2016 NBA Champion Iman Shumpert. The husband to G.O.O.D. Music's Teyana Taylor has embarked on his musical career full force and used the event at NY hot spot Slate to show off his revealed rap skills.

Along with a press run (his visit to Power 105's Breakfast Club show with Teyana is a must view) to promote his newest six track EP, Substance Abuse, Shumpert hit the stage to give the celebrity peppered crowd a surprisingly energetic set. With guests in attendance ranging from R&B star Neyo, former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Kyrie Irving, Beyonce stylist Ty Hunter and Roc Nation executive Lenny S., Shumpert performed after his opening acts in singers Niki Darling (who rocked the Lauryn Hill classic "Doo Wop") and Sasha Lance who let off with her sexy moves and new single "Pull Up."

Shumpert's EP has a futuristic feel and vocals that are on par with his and wife Teyana's sponteneous open PDA wherever they are. It's actually dope to watch them interact like the rest of the world isn't watching. That free feeling flow comes across in tracks like the electro-vibes "Eyes" and the slow-mo track with speed rap "Critical" (watch the live version here).

Seeing the support that Shumpert is receiving is a sure shock to those that haven't heard the music yet. Take a moment to see what your man who now plays for the Sacramento Kings is doing on the music scene.  Nema and drink sponsor for the event, Martell are on board with his movement...now will you co-sign the ball player turnt rapper? Let us know.

Premiere Track: THEY. Are Back With "All Mine" And Ready To Admit That Ex-Sex Is Hard To Let Go

Does your mind ever wonder off to the times your ex-partner made you shiver from pleasure? If so, the duo THEY. sure knows how to make the perfect soundscape for the memories with their new track, "All Mine." The demon time anthem is the third single from their soon to be released project, "The Amanda Tape."

The duo are quickly following up their fun-loving video with the beautiful songstress, Tinashe titled "Play Fight." Running around an arcade with Tinashe is a good way to spark some heat with the ideas for a song like "All Mine."

Knowing how awkward convos with your ex can usually turn left, the fellas of THEY., Dante Jones and Andrew "Drew Love" Neely, leaned into the punch with this to say about the song and situation: "This song is one of the bedroom jams of the album. We both grew [up] big fans of The-Dream and wanted to make something with that delivery and attitude he always brought.  A lot of us got those on-again/off-again type of relationships that always seem to come full circle. My ex told me that she was with a new dude and happy...I’m just like 'ok, we’ll see lol.'"

Be sure to check for the full project from THEY. as the guys surely know how to get the conversation going with those you probably shouldn't be talking to...for obvious reasons. Cus, whether they are your former lover or current side piece, if you laid it down right, they'll always be yours...right?

It's a meeting of the dope guys. I say that with all realness as I've been a witness of seeing these two incredible MCs come up and claim their spots these last few years. They have done the solo push through the murky waters of being independent artists, learning the ups and downs of the music industry. After collecting their bumps and bruises, Kay Anthony of Brooklyn and Dot Demo of the Bronx are finally in their full swing of producing songs that showcase their matured sounds and amazing visuals.

Linking on Anthony's newest single, "Bless Me," the fellas flow and find pockets of greatness that will surely be a marker of times to come. The music has a deep pulse feel and is a smoker's delight, with it's wavy bassline and cool out hook: "Asking for the universe to bless..." The visuals, shot by Chapter.02, are smooth and "we outside-ish."
