Shaq Offers JaVale McGee A Fade On Sight

JaVale McGee has long been a foil in Shaquille O’Neal’s Shaqtin’ A Fool series, but the NBA baller had enough—taking to Twitter to diss the NBA legend. However, Shaq clapped back strong by fering the suspect baller the fade, on sight.

It all started when Shaq dedicated a segment (a weird Dr. Strange parody) to McGee’s basketball buffoonery on TNT’s Inside The NBA last night.

Shaq did say he was going to stop slandering McGee. However, McGee took to Twitter to basically tell the NBA Hall Famer to get f his nuts.

Apiento Christens THUMP UK’s New Balearic Mix Series, Incantations

Apiento Christens THUMP UK's New Balearic Mix Series, Incantations

 

Welcome to Incantations, a series esoteric mixes from THUMP UK. We’re looking to explore the nooks and crannies club culture, situating ourselves in the liminal spaces between dancefloors, seeking solace in the obscure and the unearthed. It’s a place where Haitian jazz can rub shoulders with Polish ambient or an old disco tune by a band from Birmingham who disbanded after one record. To give you a sense the kind thing you can expect, over the next few months you’ll see mixes from the likes Leo Mas, Phil Mison, and Moonboots, along with some very exciting special surprise guests that we’re keeping under wraps for now.

We kick things f today with a set by longterm THUMP favourite, . Known to friends and family as Paul Byrne, he’s one the brains responsible for Balearic bible Test Pressing, as well as being instrumental in the rise and rise the International Feel label, which means that here in our fice, he’s something a revered figure.

The resulting 85 minutes is a gorgeously cosmic foray into the spacier end the house spectrum. We recommend listening to it one those zero-gravity flights you can hop on in Las Vegas. Failing that, a scented candle and a comfy sa will do just fine.
