Eye Candy: Melanin Model Meka (Video)

Peeking at her Instagram page it looks like @Melanin_Model_Meka likes to keep to herself… but a peek at the video above will let you know that she will also get in front of a camera and give us a hella show. From time to time at least *wink*

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

A Tuxedo Tiny Desk Concert? Best ticket you didn’t even have to purchase. Check it out!

When Tuxedo arrived at NPR and Mayer Hawthorne spied a small ‘Ho!’ button sitting on Bob Boilen’s desk, he immediately beamed. “We use a big ‘Ho!’ button on tour,” he said. They didn’t bring a drummer, opting for a boombox — yes, a real boombox playing a real cassette tape, kids — and it was nostalgic delight from the start of the cassette’s hiss. The band was tight as ever, while their ace in the hole, Gavin Turek provided dance moves and the sweetest harmonies. Tuxedo set things off with a fan favorite from their first album, along with two [more] before closing it out with a red light special. It’s one thing to go against the grain for the sake of it — and another completely make it good. In this Tiny Desk concert, Tuxedo accomplished both.

Politics: Dave Chappelle Speaks On Kanye West And President Trump (Video)

I’m not mad at Kanye. That’s my brother. I love him… I don’t have to agree with everything he says…
Dave Chappelle

The REALEST talk while still keeping some of the funny in there. We’ve come to expect that from Dave Chappelle. Gotta imagine he has some empathy for an artist who the world has called ‘crazy’ (since he has been there himself).

Comedian Dave Chappelle and Maryland democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous discuss the political divide in the US since President Trump was elected president with CNN’s Van Jones.
– CNN

Great interview clip! Very thoughtful conversation.

Watch Curren$y “Rate The Bars” (Video)

Ohhhh! Shout to BET for throwing the Na’Tee verse from her Cypher at dude for the review. Respek on Curren$y’s name for his evaluation of these barz!

Curren$y came into Rate the Bars of some great rappers. Giving huge props to B.G., Tyga, Wiz, and the late Mac Miller who he collab’d with.
– BETNetworks

(Realizing how old AND how much of a Sci-Fi GEEK I am, getting that ‘C3PO’ reference from the Mac Miller (RIP) verse right off… not even thinking it all the way through like Curren$y did. Hahaaa!)

Young Devyn ‘Riding Out’ To A Beat In The Passenger Seat (Video)

Wow! Young Devyn has been in the game since BEFORE becoming the 16-year-old phenom we’ve come to respect and check for. Seems crazy to say that an early teen has YEARS in the game, but then I think about the Golden Era (Da Youngstas, Shyheim The Rugged Child, all the way up through Buckshot Shorty and way more) and YEP! That’s how it was, and that’s how it is in real Hip-Hop.

Or, at least, how it is SUPPOSED to be. Stop with the mumblin’ young’ns… Get your BARZ up! Like Young Devyn.

Eye Candy: Summers VonHesse (Video)

Man oh man oh woman! When you got back like that and you ‘fail’… you fail forward! A few seconds of a cutie’s booty shoot that had me hollering and sounding crazier than a Kanye ‘woopt-ty scoop’ over here. And many thanks for all the Honey Hounds’ comments on this model’s YouTube (esp. C.A. Hall’s), yielding her name and IG handle to me (so I wouldn’t have to hunt for it, ’cause I was gonna go lookin’)! DAMN, Summers VonHesse is a THICKUMS!!

(Plus, she took the so-called ‘fail’ in stride. Good-natured. Cool.)

Comedy: ‘Kanye West’ Has Some Words… The Best Words… For ‘President Trump’ (Video)

Bwaaaaahahaaaa! Got eeem!

Kanye had to know that that public, very public, White House sit-down with President Trump was going to land him smack dab in the middle of a bunch of memes, spoofs, and other forms of Tom Foolery at his expense. And SNL got it IN on him!
