--The Miami Heat's all-star DJ, DJ Irie, recently received a commendation from the City Of Miami, praising his hard work for the community and various charitable efforts. Irie is currently awaiting the upcoming 2010-2011 Miami Heat season to begin where he'll be the DJ again for all the home games. Of course as you know, this season is extra special now that the Heat have a super-sized squad spearheaded by Dwyane Wade, Lebron James and Chris Bosh. [The305

-- A couple nights ago the Rising Show went down at Transit Lounge and was received with a decent-sized crowd and turnout. Saheed, Murph. LMS and others held down the show, along with Ghostwridah who performed with a live band, local group Dangerflow.
