Young M.A – “PettyWap” (Video)

I’m rich and they f**kin’ hate it.

Yes yes! Young M.A got the checkbook, without the cookbook, just dealing with the rhyme book. And all the while haters are looking mad, M.A is just looking good. Her words, but I agree with them. Best co-co ‘bite down’ type flow on a track I have heard in a while. And I would NOT go looking for them. It’s just that M.A is certified dope! So when she drops something, anything, I MUST LISTEN & WATCH.

Mistah F.A.B. – “TRL Freestyle” (Video)

I mean, I think I knew that TRL was back on the air… but it’s not like I knew knew, like enough to check for it… until now. Skillful off-top freestyling with Sway feeing him topic after topic. Respek on the name Mistah F.A.B.

Robert Irwin & Jimmy Fallon Have Fun With Exotic Animals. Not Kevin Hart’s Idea Of Fun (Video)

Couple of takeaways: Robert Irwin calling something little, cute, and fluffy means RUN AWAY! For me, and Kevin Hart, at least.

Kevin Hart struggles to keep his fear in check as Robert Irwin, 14-year-old son of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, brings out some interesting animals to show him and Jimmy, including some kingsnakes, a tarantula and a falcon.

Family Feud: Ayesha Curry Wins ‘Fast Money’ For Charity. Oh, And Steph Curry Helped (Video)

Been a minute since we had a Celebrity Family Feud clip up. Always fun to watch. After watching a second time I realized that Ayesha was actually one answer away from winning the whole thing herself! Has that ever happened??

And LOOK: He gave her the cosign to do this joint!!!

Comedy: Odell Beckham, Jr. Speak On The Cold Truth Of His Career Path (Video)

It looks like somebody should have clued OBJ in on how silly Kevin can be. The blondie-curly-twirly though. Ha! Get y’all’s crazy azzes in the tub. Careful though, it is ‘Cold As Balls!’

Odell’s iconic hair is making it rounds to everyone on set! In this episode, Odell talks about growing up playing soccer, his journey into the NFL and finally catching that epic one-handed catch! We know you have all been on ice to see this episode! Let us know if it was worth the wait.
– LOL Network

They even recount the night that THE one-handed catch was born. It wasn’t always sweet before ODJ really got to eat, but it’s better now.

From The Writer/Director Of “Moonlight,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” Comes To Theaters This Fall (Trailer)

Oh maaann, this looks like a heartwrenching, emotional rollercoaster type drama… one well worth watching when it hits theaters. Starting to feel like Black movies (films with Black people in front of and behind the camera) are hitting a good flow. No need to ask us to ‘support’ or ‘give it a chance’ when they come out nowadays because they are just great stories. Hands down.

Trust love all the way.
IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK. In theaters Fall 2018.
– Annapurna Pictures

And this trailer is teasing the story told in James Baldwin’s novel, “If Beale Street Could Talk.” A story of Black love, struggle, and trying to get and keep a young family together in racially charged Harlem in the 1970s. Helmed by Barry Jenkins, doing his first film since “Moonlight.”

The Real Lives Of Real Life Sex Workers (Documentary)

Well done and done in a respectful way. Sometimes investigative journalists embed with subjects and get overly intrusive without at least building with them, ‘earning’ the right to pry, so to speak. But VICE always seems to get it right. Probably why they consistently turn out great documentary content.

Photographer Lindsay Irene travels to Toronto to shoot with a variety of sex workers in their homes with the goal of increasing the understanding of who they are.

Miami’s Luxury Car Hustle: Hey Player, You Can Rent ‘That Life’ For A While (Documentary)

Some say, “Fake it ’til you make it.” Then others may ask, “Why not put that money into actually making it?” Well, the guys running the luxury rental biz seem to actually be making it (money) from those who rent fancy cars to ‘fake it.’

“The car business, in general, is a tough business. The car rental business, even more so. Anybody who finds out they can make money and drive a Ferrari, I mean, they’re diving in head first,” says Matt Cruz, owner of MVP Exotic Rentals, a legitimate luxury car rental business based in Miami. But when everybody wants to be a celebrity, how to you tell the difference between faking it and making it? The game is finesse, and with the allure of getting behind the wheel of the world’s most expensive cars, who wouldn’t want to play? In a world where likes and fame can be bought and the filtered facade of Instagram reigns supreme, VICE meets some of the legit — and the not-so-legit — players that cater luxury car rentals to the biggest rappers, athletes, and celebrities of the moment.

What Happens When A Fan Finally Catches Up To ‘Ghost’ (Video)

Hahaaa! He went from Omari to “Ghost” real quick! The fan quickly got ‘learnt a lesson’… It might not be ‘just a show’ but it is definitely not a game! #ChokedHimOut #WithPOWER

(Watch right to the end! They got to an understanding real quick. Dude pushed Omari’s button, and Omari pushed his. HILARIOUS!)

Food: The Story Behind The Garlic Crab And Mac-N-Cheese At Nana’s Seafood & Soul (Video)

Several references to Gullah Geechee style cooking and cuisine in this. Charlamange Tha God (of NYC’s Breakfast Club Morning Radio Show) talks up that culinary tradition on occasion as a Carolina native. The history is interesting (found a write-up on Zagat, linked here)… and the food looks delicious! Foodie road trip anyone?

Mother and son Carolyn & Kenyatta McNeil of Nana’s Seafood-Soul Takeout restaurant, have taken traditional soul food dishes and spiced things up.

The Miami Style Gods Speak On The Rush And The Danger Of Doing Street Grafitti In Miami (Documentary)

Wow. Right from the start, the dude calls his graf ‘vandalism’… NOT art. But still seems driven about it. Real out there in the streets about the spray game; folks can get shot for real (or worse). VICE investigates.

All across Miami, you’ll find countless tags done by MSG—the Miami Style Gods, a graffiti crew that’s been around since the early 90s. And two decades later, they’re still bombing as many walls, highway signs, bridges, billboards, and abandoned buildings as they can find.

VICE met up with members of the crew—who believe their trade is vandalism, not art—to find out why they’re so dedicated to a trade that makes no money and is often dangerous, from altercations with the cops to dangling over busy highways.

– VICE SPECIALS

And this is about more than graf, though that is life to these guys; it’s life in the streets.

Science Fiction: A Planetary ‘Scavenger’ Comes Across NASA’s Voyager I Satellite Launched In 1977 (Short Film)

Interesting. Thinking that Gene Rodenberry’s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” did something similar waaaay back in the day. This looks to be a very update take, certainly it’s own flick though.

And if you recognize the filmmaker Raphael Rogers as the one who did the “Beyond” short film we posted on here a good while back, kudos and a salute to you!

Jay Electronica x Yasiin Bey – “Exhibit A” (Remix) [Live Performance] (Video)

If you are a true Hip-Hop head, to say Jay Electronica and Yasiin Bey performed together is enough. So that’s all we’re saying. In case you are not [yet] a head… go ask someone who is to join you as you watch this.

R&B: Lloyd – “Excited” (Video)

Great song and video! Channeling every bit of that jammy-jam smoking hot dance track energy, and got some Honeyz in the vid (even some guys in there for you lady to look at in case she sneaks up on you while watching). Off Lloyd’s recently-released album (linked below).
