MMA and Hip-Hop continue their branding embrace with a new alliance between Snoop Dogg and Serious Pimp clothing line. This is pretty huge and I was happy to see www.allhiphop.com cover it.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Snoop Dogg will enter the business world of the MMA this Saturday, when he is expected to be named President of the Serious Pimp clothing/sunglasses company.

The announcement is expected to take place at the Venus Pool Club at Caesar’s Palace this Saturday (May 29th) afternoon. 

Snoop and company will then attend the UFC’s highly anticipated contest between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans.

"This brings the best of both worlds to Serious Pimp. Snoop Dogg knows what the people want and shares our vision to promote events that combine the Hip Hop culture and the MMA movement," said Serious Pimp Founder and CEO Damian Kutzner. "Together we will usher in the next era for the Serious Pimp brand and satisfy the demand from the Hip Hop community and extreme fighting lifestyle world."

The announcement comes weeks after Snoop’s “spiritual advisor” Bishop Don Juan, was named as Serious Pimp’s Chairman of the Board.

Snoop will leverage his contacts in the music industry to help expand the brand create events that merge Hip-Hop music with MMA fighting and create a stronger bond between the brand and the sport.

"Serious Pimp got its start sponsoring MMA fighters in their bouts," continued Kutzner, who launched the company in 1999.

"Ironically, ‘Rampage’ was one of the first fighters we got behind. Snoop Dogg’s attendance at this fight shows the company’s connection to the past and its vision for the future,” Kutzner said.

After the bout between Jackson and Evans, Snoop Dogg will hit the stage at the LAX Nightclub at the Luxor for a special celebratory performance.

What did you think when Sony made White to dominate Black

First off, let me just say, I know this Sony ad is old and people do not understand why so many people are talking about it now. But the reality is when Pepsi went and did that Kendal Jenner ad, it opened the flood gates for people to start reminding the world of other companies major ad flops that impact race relations.

For those who may have forgotten the ad, here it is a European looking person grabbing the face of a Black person as if to dominate. The tag line clearly sends the message "Look out Black, White is Coming".

So that leads me to say "WHAT THE *@$!"

How can an ad like this be forgotten? If you know anything about advertisements, then you know that this ad had to get the green light from multiple people. That means that there are multiple people at Sony who need race relation training.

Now because this ad is a bit old, I am not going to sit around and break down all that is clearly wrong with it. I just wanted to take a moment and answer the question t…

E-40 Hits the Big Time in new TV Ad

E-40 has always been a giant in my heart. I'm from The Bay Area. But it has taken time for people to acclimate to his level. Now he is seen as a futuristic mogul OUTSIDE of Hip-Hop. In his latest genius move, Drive Time Credit Company uses his classic Choices and re-raps the lyrics. This one caught me off guard and I was happy surprised.

United Front Against United Airlines

Anyone who travels a lot may have heard these words "Flight ABC is overbooked. We are offering a $$$ for anyone willing to give up their flight and book on a later flight". Typically this announcement is done while we are all waiting to board our flight, usually people just either look at the ground and ignore the request or others look around at each other to see who is going to jump at the offer. Usually there is someone who can afford to miss their flight, but it is rare to see someone jump up and take the first offer. The airlines often have to sweeten the pot to get someone to accept being bumped and flying out later.

So I guess my opening helps point out what the first mistake made by United Airlines was on the ill-fated day when a paying customer was beaten and drag off the plane. For those of you who do not know what happened, let me sum it up. The week of April 10th United Airlines employees assisted passengers as they boarded the plane. Passengers played the overhe…
