Together, both Jimmy & Jey Uso are one of the most exciting & fastest-rising tag teams in WWE. The sons of former WWE Superstar Rikishi, the twins are proud of their Samoan heritage, as clearly evidenced by the Samoan war dance they perform before each match.
David Dallas, also part Samoan, was asked to create an original song for the Usos' to be used as their entrance theme prior to each match. The track, "So Close Now" will pump through arena speakers as The Usos' prepare for their march to victory.
The Usos' are honored to have a fellow New Zealander create their theme song, proclaiming that they're "young & rising WWE Superstars, like David Dallas, who is a young rising rap artist. We both represent our heritage in two totally different ways. 'Malo Uso' - which means 'Good Job Brother!"

Qualified chef-turned-rapper from Queens, New York, newcomer Action Bronson has built up a loyal following since he decided to leave the kitchen for a recording studio only 18 short months ago. However, the man Rolling Stone Magazine recently called the “Artist to Watch” didn’t stray too far from the kitchen, as he is well known for rapping about his culinary delights. Action’s experiences lend a unique flavour to his rhymes, where you’ll find witty mentions of duck prosciutto, Tunisian olives, smoked brisket and other delicacies along with vivid imagery of a modern-day Viking pillaging his way across New York.
Action recently linked up with Producer Statik Selektah, and a couple tracks turned into a whole project. What do you get when you combine one of the best Producers in the game and one of the best upcoming lyricists? Action Bronson & Statik Selektah call it Well Done.

The hip-hop community is still reeling from the death of Heavy D earlier this week, but more troubling news surfaced over the weekend. Via a brief tweet on Saturday (November 12), DJ Scratch revealed that Erick Sermon has suffered from a heart attack. The 42-year-old singer is one half of the legendary New York group EPMD along with Parrish Smith. Details on Sermon’s status are still scarce, but according to Scratch (who once DJed for EPMD), he seems to be stable.
"Erick Sermon had a heart attack today," DJ Scratch wrote. "He's ok, but still send your prayers. He is not on Twitter." Fans have continued to tweet their questions at him after the initial announcement, prompting him to reply, “I wish yall tweet me this much when I tweet good news. Smh”
Before embarking on his successful solo career, Sermon scored several hits--including 1987’s “It’s My Thing,”--with Parrish Smith as part of EPMD (Erick and Parrish Making Dollars). His first solo album No Pressure was released in 1993.
