Carmelo Anthony on the Rise of Athlete Activism
























The title of captain on Team USA's basketball team comes with some complicated connotations in today's America. For Carmelo Anthony, this year's Olympics started as an opportunity to get back to winning and cement his legacy as one of the greatest Olympians of all time. 


But after troubling events involving police violence against young black men took the national stage once again, his thought process began to change. With virtually unparalleled respect amongst his peers, Carmelo took an opportunity to create a dialogue. This summer, we crossed the nation with the Olympic captain to explore his role of representing Team USA during a crossroads in this nation's history.

GGN News with Rae Sremmurd - FULL EPISODE

























Whether you like Rae Sremmurd or not.. and seriously, how could you not.. you have to respect the young brothers from Tupelo, Miss. Sonically distinct, industrious, and self-assured, Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown, 21, and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown, 23, have swept through the music world like a Gulf Coast storm since releasing "No Flex Zone," the successful first single off their EarDrummers/Interscope Records debut, SremmLife, in May 2014. 


In the recording booth and on stage, the energetic rappers bring an unrelenting, infectious, feel-good party vibe that has won seemingly everybody over, from folks in their hometown, to producer and label boss Mike WiLL Made-It, to Paul bloody McCartney, who knows a little something about making unforgettable popular music. Anybody who was resistant to Rae Sremmurd's subsequent string of hits ("No Type," "Throw Sum Mo," "Come Get Her," and "This Could Be Us") had to give it up when they heard "Black Beatles," the group's Gucci Mane-assisted breakout smash from 2016 follow-up, SremmLife 2. Associated with the viral Mannequin Challenge, the single was everywhere and undeniably awesome, earning both Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane their first number-one single on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. At this point, there is no point in hating, because it's clear these accomplished siblings are just getting started and the best is yet to come.

On the newest episode of  GGN, Rae Sremmurd joins Snoop to talk about their early failures, the source of their energy, their process working with Mike WiLL Made-It, the expectation of hits, real asses vs. fakes, and much more.
