By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Sep. 3, 2015 12:06 PM

This past Wednesday EA SPORTS unveiled their NBA LIVE 16 soundtrack coming with an official NBA LIVE Spotify profile page, which allows listeners their first taste of the songs they'll have ingrained into their minds after hours of game-play two weeks after they purchase the game. Artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Fashawn feat. Busta Ryhmes, King Los feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Vince Staples, Nick Catchdubs feat. Iamsu! & Jay Ant, Oddisee and a brand new song by Illa J.

On top of the more well known artists, DJ MICK, who curated this year's soundtrack, is putting an emphasis on finding up-and-coming artists to debut their singles on a grand stage.

Check out the full playlist below:

The game hits shelves September 29th, and we just know these songs are going to be deep-rooted in our minds for years to come. The 'Grand Theft Auto: Vice City' soundtrack is still stuck in our head to this day.

Social media reactions to Tom Brady's suspension getting overturned

It's finally over. After months of speculation, court hearings and a heated public relations battle, Thursday, a federal judge overturned New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

With the magnitude of the ruling and Brady being such a polarizing figure, the reactions on social media were always going to be gold. The internet did not disappoint...

Bill Murray and the RiverDogs gave away a car with 285,000 miles on it

In case you weren't aware, actor and comedian Bill Murray partially owns the Charleston RiverDogs Single-A baseball team, who are the New York Yankees affiliates. Murray rather be known around the ballpark as the "Director of Fun" than a partial owner, and that can easily be explained by the hilarious and wacky things he gets up to with the team.

To celebrate the team's largest crowd of the season, the RiverDogs decided to give away a car. That doesn't seem like too peculiar of a promotional tool... until we tell you the car is a 1998 Honda Civic with 285,000 miles on it, which just happens to be the same number of their record attendance.

T-Pain sings beautiful National Anthem without the use of auto-tune

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Sep. 2, 2015 11:40 PM

There are some artists in the pop music scene these days notoriously known for using auto-tune in every song, and rapper T-Pain happens to be one of the biggest culprits. When we heard T-Pain was singing The Star-Spangled Banner at the Los Angeles Dodgers versus San Francisco Giants' game in LA on Monday, we braced ourselves for a slightly more patriotic version of "Buy You a Drank," but what we heard was something far more pleasing.

It turns out T-Pain has a beautiful voice, yet he never seems to showcase his natural talent in his music. Someone please buy T-pain a drank for putting on such a wonderful National Anthem performance.


The NBA impersonator is back with his hilarious Ginobili parody

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Sep. 2, 2015 10:47 PM

Brandon Armstrong once spent his time grinding it out on the basketball court in the NBA D-League, but since his D-League stunt ended, he has decided to take his best shot at acting. The former D-Leaguer has taken up impersonating other NBA stars, and his imitations have been so accurate that videos he is posting have gone completely viral.

In his latest impersonation, Armstrong masters San Antonio Spurs legend Manu Ginobili, running up and down the court brushing his hair off his face (like a young Ginobili), slicing through screens, and even nails the three time NBA champions free throw tendencies.

Ginobili himself even loved it!

Daniel Bryan dances like a crazy person to raise awareness for cancer

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Sep. 2, 2015 9:34 PM

WWE superstar Daniel Bryan has fought some pretty intimidating wrestlers over the years, but he has never had a fight like WWE Hall of Famer Connor "The Crusher" Michalek, who was Bryan's biggest fan and fought cancer until losing his battle in April of 2014. Another young man by the name of Braylon Beam, who is also battling cancer, started a #JustKeepDancing movement earlier this year in an effort to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer.

Bryan, who was clearly inspired by the two young men, decided he would take part in the #JustKeepDancing movement, recording a video of himself dancing around like a crazy person before challenging the Bella Twins to post their own video.

Eichel gets mic'd up at the Rookie Showcase and we learn his hilarious chirps

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Sep. 2, 2015 8:47 PM

The Rookie Showcase has shown us a lot about the new crop of players making their way into the National Hockey League, and after the days events we learned Jack Eichel is going to be one of our favourite personalities in the game. The youngster was mic'd up for the NHL and further proved why he's going to be a great character for the NHL. Constantly communicating with other players on the ice and hilariously chirping opposing rookies for all kinds of different things.

We love it when athletes are mic'd up, especially when they're athletes we don't know much about. We didn't know too much about Eichel yet, and this mic'd up feature gave us an inside look into who he is as a person. Keep doing your thing, Jack!
