I believe it’s because partly because her team sits in a plush room filled with amazing decor to chat and giggle about how foolish the media looks every time we go crazy for Queen Bey. I know I would if I was on #TeamBey. Hopefully the rumor is true but I will keep you updated on if it is true or not. But how excited are you?

Mostly known for her basketball photos, Cassy has been recognized and gained respect from the likes of The Game, Dorrell Wright, Trey Songz & many more. You may have seen her at the Drew League or Long Beach State basketball games taking photos but we go more in depth of who she is and her goals. Peep the interview below. On this day, I shadowed Cassy as she took photos at the Nike Air West basketball facility in LA. Porterhouse LA : How old are you? Cassy Athena : Don’t you mean, how young am I? haha Where are you from? I’m from Northern Los Angeles…close to the Burbank/Glendale area. Valley Girl! Canon or Nikon?

When Pusha T came on to Sway in the Morning, he spoke about illuminati rumors and devil worshipping, then he spoke about Kane being better than Rakim — but we couldn’t let him leave without freestyling. “Before we get into that,” Says Pusha before kicking his freestyle. “From Cruel Summer, we crowned Raekwon and Ghost as having the most timeless flows. Un-copiable flows in Hip Hop. You can’t copy what they do its going to stand the test of time, years on years to get on tracks with people and its always gonna stand out.” Watch him flow above.
