Ballin’! Pharrell is stepping out on the hardwood for NBA 2K15. The “Happy” Oscar nominee has been tapped to curate music for the video game’s latest installment, joining Jay Z and Lebron James who’ve soundtracked it in the past. “I couldn’t believe my name got tossed in the hat,” he shared at a press conference for the announcement today. Funny one, that Skateboard P. [Billboard]

Attention ladies and gentlemen. Drake didn’t start from the bottom; he started from the six. Today, he announced the name of his fourth solo album, Views from the 6. It has yet to be recorded, but will surely get some extra buzz when he goes on tour with label boss Lil Wayne next month. [Pitchfork]

So much so that the app is on track to earn $200 million in revenue. Who knew so many people were willing to pay to keep up with Kardashian, even if it’s not real?! [Mashable]

Good news for Tracy Morgan fans! The comedian made his first appearance since the fatal June 7 car crash that left him in critical condition Monday, smiling at paparazzi and sending his followers a message. “I feel strong. I love you,” he said. “Thank you very much. I appreciate it.” [TIME]

Community isn’t the only show singing Yahoo’s praises. Fox comedy Enlisted, which was cancelled nine episodes into its first season despite critical acclaim, could soon be calling the media company, and its Yahoo Screen streaming service, home. [Deadline]
