Short answer: Nah. Good luck with that book though, Omarosa.

Comedy: Rap Stars Read ‘Mean Tweets’ From Fans (Video)

Hilarious! Yeah, all of the trolls who flex that ‘keyboard courage’ on social media, see Remy Ma with your Twitter fingers and you could catch them hands… My vote for best part is definitely Remy’s response. But the whole video is awesome. Kudos to all featured for being good sports.

How Do You Think Young M.A Scored On Her ’90s Hip-Hop Test? (Video)

Unique promotion for that ‘Unsolved’ limited series presented by USA Network. And very interesting. She’s a ’90s baby… and she knows her Golden Era. Pretty good M.A #Salute

The Brooklyn rapper has been noted by fans for her sound that’s reminiscent of ‘90s rap, so Genius decided to test her knowledge on the decade with a round of trivia with Hip-Hop icon Redman.
– Genius

Red with the ding-ding-ding-ding gameshow effect is hilarious, too (haha)!

Janet Jackson x Daddy Yankee – “Made For Now” (Video)

Janet does dance music for certain, but can she do reggaeton right though? Of course, that question is purely rhetorical. Janet can do ANYTHING she wants when it comes to dance (or otherwise, in our eyes).

But just in case, she has Daddy Yankee on board for ‘back up’ on this summer jam “Made For Now.”

A Promise For October 12th: Tiffany Haddish Refusing To Sign ‘The Oath’ Will NOT Go Over Well With Her Family (Trailer)

Ahhh, nothing brings family together for holiday dinner better than lively political debate… and live voltage from a taser! Wowww… Happy Turkey Day. And the bird isn’t the only one getting cooked…

A controversial White House policy turns family member against family member in THE OATH, a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more level-headed wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails. As timely as it is outrageous, THE OATH is a gleefully wicked reinvention of the traditional holiday comedy for our divisive political times.
– Roadside Flix

This family needs to chill. Maybe they should have skipped the roasting (turkey, verbally poking each other) and gone with ‘smoking’ (turkey, and maybe toking with each other). But then we wouldn’t get this level of Haddish hilarity on screen (hahaa)!

Miguel – “Vote” (Prod. By Mark Ronson)

Placement on the “Crazy Rich Asians” soundtrack (that movie is poised to do some decent end-of-summer numbers) is a good look. Big name like Mark Ronson on production. Yep, “Vote” checks all the right boxes for a move to keep Miguel’s name on bubble out there in the streets.

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Erykah Badu (Video)

Robert Glasper did mention Erykah Badu in that last scorcher interview he did. Fellow Texan. And she is well beyond worthy on ‘honorable mention.’ See her Tiny Desk Concert performance for a reminder if you need one; or even if you don’t!

Erykah Badu is an artist for the ages. To old-school jazz fans like myself, names like Nina Simone, Betty Carter and Shirley Horn come to mind as much as Billie Holiday because of Badu’s singular approach to a lyric. They all cut their own creative path and left behind a legacy that you can identify with just one note. Erykah Badu is on that same path, and one day her name will be mentioned along with the other Elders who share her spirit of musical adventure.
