Why did @kingjames sign with the Los Angeles Lakers?

The Lakers had a large amount of cap space to work with. The team was projected to have a little under $50 million to hand out. That put them in the running to sign not just James, but potentially  another top free agent.

The team can pair James — and whoever else might be coming — with Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma.

In the end, James believed it was the right situation for him. It also helps that the Lakers are one of the game’s premier franchises.

It's finally here! Weed Apocalypse Sundy in the State of California.
Rules requiring special packaging and lab testing lead to fears of legal weed sales.

About $350m worth of cannabis products could be destroyed as new regulations take effect on Sunday in California.

New rules stipulate that all cannabis products must be sold in child-resistant packaging, and must be lab-tested for potency and a variety of contaminants. Additionally, edibles will be limited to 100mg of THC per package, divided into 10mg servings.

The long-anticipated switch has prompted California dispensaries to sell non-compliant products at steep discounts. Amid the buyers’ market, dispensaries that overstocked the items are taking a huge profit loss because of the rule change! #MacLifeRadio #themaclifemediagroup #news #independent #music #education #cannabiscommunity #California #promotions #entertainment #radio

According to reports, officers fired rubber bullets and pepper bullets into the crowd after participants started to throw rocks!

Hundreds of @xxxtentacion fans closed down Melrose Avenue, some risking their lives by jumping off roofs during a tribute to the rapper in Los Angeles.

Fans took to the streets Tuesday night ... climbing on top of vehicles, swarming the streets and sidewalks and scaling buildings. Some fans jumped off of roofs into crowds of people below as chants from the crowd grew louder.

A congregation of several hundred began around 8 PM ... it started peacefully but, as the crowd size grew, so did the chaos. Multiple news crews and L.A. County Sheriff's department helicopters flew above. Officers in riot gear also descended upon the crowd.

XXX was murdered in South Florida Monday after two armed men approached his vehicle and shot the rapper in an apparent robbery! #macliferadio #themaclifemediagroup #independent #music #news #cannabis #hiphop #Mia #LA #NY #CO #WA #NV #DC #ATL #TX #AL #CHI #DET

Rejjie Snow,The Irish rapper is proving 'everyone wrong'! Eyebrows were raised in some quarters at the prospect of a rapper from Dublin – but Snow's first EP knocked Kanye West off the top of the hip-hop charts and won him performing gigs with Madonna and Kendrick Lamar. Now, he tours his debut album!

When Dublin native Alex Anyaegbunam, aka Rejjie Snow, first told people he wanted to be a rapper, he would often get the same response: “But you’re Irish?’” “Nearly everyone said that,” he says with a laugh. “It kind of sucked. But I always knew what I wanted to do. I used it as fuel to prove everyone wrong.” Which is exactly what he did! Shout to @rejjiesnow for not giving up on his dreams and aspirations!!!! #maclifemedia #themaclifemediagroup #music #cannabiscommunity #money #entertainment #news

Remembering Bob Dorough, a pianist and singer who performed with jazz greats Charlie Parker and Miles Davis but was perhaps best known for his whimsical compositions for the animated video series “Schoolhouse Rock!,” died April 23 at his home in Mount Bethel, Pa. He was 94. Bob Borough is a great and legendary musician and educator! He will be greatly missed! Sending comfort and encouragement to his wife, family and friends. Mr. Bob Dorough Rest In Power!!! #macliferadio #themaclifemediagroup #music #entertainment #news

Jeff Sessions has had a busy week. On Monday, the Attorney General of the United States delivered remarks to a meeting of the National Sheriffs’ Association. Most of the attention has been focused (rightly) on a moment when he deviated from his prepared remarks to praise the ‘Anglo-American heritage’ of the sheriff’s office. (This supremacists term describes the self serving mentality of a White American racist justice system designed to protect Whites and their selfrighteous ideologies! )

Then, he called out ‘one senator’ who was holding up Department of Justice nominees over Sessions’ views on marijuana. This is obviously Colorado senator Cory Gardner.

But another remark got lost in the shuffle, and it’s one that’s equally important. From Sessions’ prepared remarks: "I cannot and will not pretend that a duly enacted law of this country—like the federal ban on marijuana - does not exist. Marijuana is illegal in the United States - even in Colorado, California, and everywhere else in America." Yikes. As anyone who lives in California or Colorado can tell you, cannabis is very much legal at the state level, even though it’s illegal at the federal level. Does Sessions have federal power to crack down on cannabis?

It’s complicated. The Cole Memo, which states that the DOJ would not intervene with state marijuana markets, was rescinded by Sessions last month. Yet a DOJ subcommittee - the Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety - released a report last year advising that Obama-era rules keeping the federal government out of state marijuana laws be continued.

So what will Sessions do? At this point, it’s hard to say. As Vox points out, he could simply sign a new memo to replace the Cole memo. One thing is clear, though: Sessions is hellbent on stifling marijuana legalization, in spite of the will of the states and a majority of Americans. #macliferadio #themaclifemediagroup #music #entertainment #news #film #cannabiz #YouTube #itunes #deezer

"Black Panther
"Black Panther" is still two weeks away from hitting theaters but advanced ticket sales on Fandango is already outpacing all other superhero films.

Following a star-studded world premiere on Monday in Los Angeles, ticket sales for the Marvel Studios production, which stars Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong'o, has also eclipsed every other movie that currently has tickets for sale on Fandango.

The impressive pace of ticket sales is a measurement of enthusiasm for a highly-anticipated film that was years in the making. Whether "Black Panther" will break more records on opening day and in the weeks following remains to be seen. The movie opens on February 16.

The film has already amassed rave reviews from fans on social media following Monday's world premiere. Box office success would simply reinforce the superhero genre as one of the most bankable in Hollywood. When tickets went on sale earlier this month, "Black Panther" broke Fandango's presale ticket record for Marvel Cinematic Universe films in its first 24 hours, a record previously held by 2016's "Captain America: Civil War." Of the top ten biggest opening weekends of all time, five are superhero films. At the top is 2012's "The Avengers" at $207 million, making it the fourth biggest opening of all time behind the last two "Star Wars" films and "Jurassic World." Industry analysts are projecting that "Black Panther" could open at around $130 million or higher, but they caution that it's still too early to tell. "'Black Panther' is generating the kind of buzz that is usually reserved for the summer movie season," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore (SCOR). "Black Panther" is also breaking grounds in the superhero genre.

Comic book films like 1998's "Blade" have starred African American superheroes, but "Black Panther" is Marvel's first film directed by an African-American (Ryan Coogler) and one of the first major superhero films that has a predominantly African-American cast. Case in point, this is turning out to be an extremely monumental film.

If you are really serious about your music and want to live your dreams doing what you love, then you must BRAND yourself. So many artist make the mistake of copying what other artist are doing. You need to build a brand. A brand, basically put, is a consistent message and theme. It’s what you do, and how you look. It is not created on accident, brands take time and consistency to develop.
Branding is one of the main reasons I keep reminding artist to mix and master their tracks professionally before letting people hear them. It sets you apart from everybody else that HASN’T gotten their music mixed and mastered. And that’s more than 90% of artist. They simply don’t know anything about sound quality, or are just too anxious to show the world what they came up with. So just by mixing and mastering your music alone, it will SOUND BETTER than most music being put out. How good it’s mixed plays a part in how much people will like your music. Music is all about how it makes people feel. When you understand how much sound quality plays a part in people feeling your music or not, you won’t just put out anything that doesn’t SOUND professional.
Separating yourself from everybody else that’s making music is important and will determine how successful you will be in your music career. Once you start developing a strong brand, people that don’t understand branding will wonder how you're doing it. That’s when you can tell them it's all about branding.

It is with great sadness that we
learned of the passing of comedic legend and civil rights activist Mr. Dick Gregory. His publicist of 50 years, Steve Jaffe,
announced Dick Gregory departed this earth yesterday, Saturday, August 19th 2017 in Washington, DC. at the age of 84. He was surrounded by family and friends, including his wife of 58 years, Lillian, who all loved him dearly.
The family appreciates the outpouring of support and love and respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time. Our hearts go out to the Gregory family and we send them our prayers and love as a comforter and thank Mr. Dick Gregory for all the laughs and lessons in leadership against civil injustice! Thank you, Dick Gregory, you left us all a message of empowerment and you will be greatly missed! Rest In Paradise, Brother King! From @macliferadio and the creator and host @mac_fame_tha_great
