“I lovvvveee your outfitttttt. Mwah.” Cee-Lo Champs’ new video, Demon Time, is now live.

More Frog: Heckride interviewed Nick Michel.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Lonzo Ball full-court pass to Zach Lavine in-game 360 dunk. Shout out to Chicago, your team is fun.
Quote of the Week

Though it is notoriously known as the 2017 Barcelona trip where it rained the entire time, one of its most fried quotes nevertheless has the distinction of being source material for #beats nearly five years later.
