Only nine days after announcing his $94.8 million dollar extension with the Chicago Bulls, the 2010-2011 MVP is said to be signing a $250 million dollar contract renewal with Adidas to be their counter for Kobe Bryant in China. It is believed that Rose is second in sneaker sales, trailing behind Kobe and leading LeBron James. Hmm, who knows what will happen in the future, maybe someday Rose will surpass Bryant in sales… Until then, we will have to just wait and see what happens. Having said that, DERRICK ROSE FOR MVP.

Our boy Mike Knapp has put together a small collection of his personal favorite shots of rappers that he captured throughout this year. If you aren’t familiar with Knapp he is known for his heavy affiliation with The Source Magazine and TheBrandWithNoName and also for his outstanding talent behind the lens. The collection consists of stills of Yelawolf, Kid Cudi, Dom Kennedy, Casey Veggies and many more! Having said that, be sure to check out his 2011 Best of Rappers on his website right here. And be sure to holler at him on Twitter @mKnappp!

Here’s the debut video from the seventeen year old rapper from Los Angeles that goes by the name of Cire. In this song, the LA native speaks on his daily grind and his ambitions of becoming the most dangerous rapper in the industry. This song is also accommodated by quality visuals in which Cire directed and edited by himself. Feel free to contact him with any feedback or anything of that nature by sending him a tweet at @KingCireLA.
