LeBron James Reveals 24-Hour Personal DJ, KimYe Go All-Gold Everything Toilets, J. Cole Shines Golden Bright
Turnt Up Thursday. It’s one of those turnt up days and what better way to get things going than with LeBron James going hard with his own personal 24-hour deejay? Speaking of balling, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are sitting pretty on some gold toilets? Someone also sitting on gold these days is J. Cole and his new Born Sinner album. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Go DJ, That’s My DJ
Is LeBron James living the life right now or what? Not only is he a back-to-back NBA champion and back-to-back-to-back Eastern Conference champion, but he’s on the verge of marrying his longtime girlfriend and is kicking it in China right now with his own, personal deejay? TMZ is all over this:
LeBron James is ballin’ so hard in China right now … he’s got his own personal DJ in his hotel room — and the guy’s spinnin’ records 24 HOURS A DAY.
LBJ just posted a video from his pimped out suite at the W Hotel in Guangzhou — saying, “Just gotta show you all something … I got my own 24/7 dj in my room!”
Roughly 8 hours later, King James posted ANOTHER video proving his DJ was still going strong — along with the message, “Just letting you all know that I really wasn’t playing about my 24/7 DJ.” (TMZ)
Can anyone say balling out of control? Even for LeBron James, that’s a little bit over-the-top. But considering how much LeBron James has made the NBA exciting and fun to watch again, can anyone blame him for having some fun? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Sh*tted On Em</p>
If you thought LeBron James was balling, then you’ve seen nothing until you have entered into Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s new home with the decked out golden toilets. It seems a bit hard to believe Kanye and Kim would really want to have toilets made of gold but they have been known to live like true ballers in the past. The New York Post has the inside:
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have spent just over $750,000 on four gold-plated toilets for their new Bel Air mansion.
The couple have been staying with Kim’s mom Kris Jenner while work on their new mansion in LA is finished. Now that they have a completion date they have started buying furniture and fittings.
Kanye has ordered six special-edition beds from the company that supplies London’s Savoy Hotel, costing $174,000 each.
They are also kitting out their kitchen with almost $750,000 of Electrolux gear and a Swarovski- encrusted fridge freezer. (New York Post)
Is there any chance this could be true? It would make for an interesting story for guests to tell after they have stayed in the KimYe residence but still seems a bit too hard to believe. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Golden Halo
One person who really is sitting on gold right now is J. Cole with his new Born Sinner album doing what its supposed to do on the sales charts. There’s always the fear of the sophomore jinx but the well-made projects both for retail and underground by J. Cole have always been well-received. Hip Hop N More is all over this:
J. Cole’s good run continues as his sophomore album Born Sinner has passed the 500k mark in sales, according to his right hand man Ibrahim. The album which was released on June 18th alongside Kanye’s Yeezus has taken only 5 weeks to achieve the status — and that too, quicker than ‘Ye. Now that’s big! (HHNM)
It seemed like the record industry was really suffering a few years ago but things are looking up with artists like J. Cole, Kanye West, Jay Z and more doing serious numbers on the charts. Could this trend continue through 2013 and into next year? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
