The NBA's all-time leading scorer, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and firebrand hip-hop musician, Chuck D, are not only icons of black culture in America but have also become voices of change across the globe.

When he joined Muhammed Ali in changing his name, it sparked a seismic shift in the conversation about the African American experience. Chuck D's hip hop group, Public Enemy, hit the airwaves with a mission. He helped elevate rap to a respected and politically charged musical genre. A wake-up call for modern America, Chuck's songs became anthems for a disaffected generation and set new standards for the music industry. Join these two game-changing visionaries as they shoot hoops, trade philosophies and pick through Kareem's storied collection of memorabilia. watch

James Brown's Last Words: "I'm Going Away Tonight"

Felled by congestive heart failure on Christmas morning, James Brown used his final breaths to tell longtime manager Charles Bobbit, "I'm going away tonight," the New York Daily News reports. "I didn't believe him," Bobbit relates, adding that a short time later, Brown sighed three times, closed his eyes and died. Per the News, fellow music legend Little Richard remembers Brown as "an innovator, an emancipator, an originator... Rap music, all that stuff came from James Brown." Adds Public Enemy's Chuck D, "To this day there has been no one as funky. No one's coming even close." Noting the singer's most holy final day of life, the Rev. Jesse Jackson says, "He was dramatic to the end.... He would have it no other way." read more
