#London2012: Closing Ceremony Playlist

It always seems like the end of the Olympics comes around too fast. At any rate, the Closing Ceremony has arrived. From MC Bolt’s DJ set last night to the tribute to British Rock today, London will be partying.

I mean, The Who are cool and all but at princeakeem.com we’re taking the opportunity to make our own party, USA style. Behold: the “Closing Ceremony Playlist.

Featuring classic tracks by James Brown, Michael Jackson, Biggie, 2Pac, and others. Newer jams by Tyga, Frank Ocean, and Rick Ross.

And if you’re looking for a place to stream the closing ceremony online, look no further.


It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a party ayyyy

This is the follow-up to yesterday’s photo of the US Olympic Hoops team, if you missed it.

The Olympians in the pics are, starting from the top:

1) Warren Weir, Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake rock green shirts and skinny ties for Jamaica

2) Pau and Marc Gasol and rock the “Mr. Sandman Bring me a Treat” barbershop quartette jackets for Spain.

3) Carmelita Jeter poses with James Harden and Russell Westbrook

4) Lolo Jones makes wacky faces with Deron Williams

5) Kobe Bryant poses in friendly competition with Pau Gasol

Serena Williams Does the Crip Walk?


Forget Usain’s Lightning Bolt. Ron Artest’s “Everybody say Queensbridge!” Brandi Chastain’s ripping off her shirt to reveal her sports bra. Or even NFL touchdown celebrations like Tebowing or the Dirty Bird. Serena Williams crip walk upon winning the Gold was definitely the most unusual victory celebration sports has ever seen.

For those who were offended, we say cut her a little slack. Sports victories, , especially those on the international stage, are definitely a cause for celebration and sometimes emotion can get the best of you. Good thing the Olympics weren’t held in Compton though.
