Nessy Rios – “Desires”

Oh maaaan, Chris Rivers might feel a way about the hotness his sis is putting on display; on the track and in that pic (smoking)! But I’m going to let the family work that out. Buuuuut, as long as she is setting things out like this (the music, pervs)… we gotta give her some play (take that how you want, heh heh).

Big Pun’s second oldest Nessy Rios delivers a smooth, sultry vibe over her first single release entitled “Desires.”

Why Is Action Bronson’s Face Shaved? (Video)

Well, ‘Bam-Bam goes beardless’ is the headline, but he talks about other stuff: the World Cup, a new brew (Stillwater Artisanal beer), possibly some new music, definitely “F*** That’s Delicious,” and being in a forthcoming Robert Dinero film!

Action Bronson has a brand new look! The rapper is now walking around with a shaved face. Wait til you hear the crazy story behind it.

Glidecycling Looks Fun (Video)

…at least more fun than just jogging.

This bike without pedals is actually better for your joints than running.
– In The Know Innovation

Yep, the Glidecycle may well change the way you think about running (or gliding, or um ri-cycling, or… ah let marketing figure out a name for it).

Neil Holmes Might Be The Last Black Bull Rider In The South (Documentary)

In case you didn’t know, roughly a fourth of the cowboys of old were Black. Today though, the world of professional bull riding, a sport rooted in ranching culture, is predominantly White. And when Neil Holmes leaves… even more so.

On this episode of ‘MINORITY REPORTS,’ VICE sent Lee Adams to Texas to meet Neil Holmes and Ezekiel Mitchell—two Black bull riders at different points in their careers—to find out what it’s like as a person of color trying to make it in the predominantly White world of professional bull riding. Holmes—an accomplished pro on the eve of his retirement—explains how he got into bull riding and talks about leaving the sport as the only Black pro ranked in the top 100 bull riders. Desperately trying to fill Holmes’s shoes is Mitchell, who’s struggled with the funds to travel, and has experienced racism in the sport first-hand.

Why Flint Still Doesn’t Have Clean Water (Video)

Do you think the Flint [Michigan, US] water crisis has been fixed? C’mon. Poorest city of its size in the nation… take a guess.

It’s been over four years and Flint still doesn’t have clean water.

You know, President Trump could really have scored some points by getting the water cleaned up here. Waaaay cheaper than that wall that will NOT get built anyway. Plus, the returns in goodwill and political capital would be very helpful in his run for a second term.

Am I actually giving Donald Trump a tip for Campaign 2020? No. Didn’t need my advice before. Just hoping and daring him to actually do something he could really spin as something he did that President Obama did not do. To help Americans heal AND tell the truth while doing it.

C’mon, Mr. President. This is not rocket science. But speaking of rocket science (Space Force!), there is talk of Elon Musk aka Mr. Put-Men-On-Mars-ASAP stepping in. Really? Is this Administration going to let an actual ‘Rocket Man’ punk them; to let the Space X founder be a bigger force for good in our universe than the Space Force? Yeah, Trump Administration… gauntlet thrown #WaterForFlint

After More Than 20 Years, “Tales From The Hood” Gets A Sequel (Trailer)

Wow! Spike Lee and the original creators are back with “Tales From The Hood”… TWO! Remember the first one, with mad creepy Mr. Simms, played by Clarence Williams III? Well, Mr. Simms is back… played by Keith David; who is acting just as creepy, just as mad, and not playing with y’all!

In the wake of the success of Jordan Peele’s “Get Out,” studios have been racing to make their own “socially aware” genre films. While most will miss the point completely, there’s one in the works that’s perfectly primed for a revival. Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott‘s 1995 “Tales From The Hood” was hugely ahead of its time, putting an urban spin on “Tales From the Crypt” and sharing several stories in what is easily one of the best anthology films ever made. Now, 20 years later, it’s getting a much-needed sequel – on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and On Demand on October 2, 2018.

“Tales from the Hood 2” introduces the audience to four new dreadful short tales, that follow the original film’s cult classic roots. Sparked with both humor and terror, this brand new movie is said to be filled with even more gritty social commentary and cultural subtext that will provoke and haunt viewers, while putting them on the edge of their seats.

Comedy: Which Is The Best Will Smith Movie? (Video)

The SquADD can find ANYTHING to argue about, right? Hahaa! Fair warning: There will be Will Smith impressions AND panelists taking hurtful-but-HILARIOUS shots at each other. C’mon man. It’s the SquADD. It’s what they do…

The SquADD debates Hitch, Men in Black, Bad Boys and more as they discuss their all-time favorite Will Smith movies.

Is “Talking White” Actually A Thing? (Video)

In the trailer when Danny Glover is in “Sorry To Bother You” telling Lakeith Stanfield to use his ‘White voice’ to get ahead at the job… that part. That’s code-switching in rare form. But ‘talking White’ is really, really a thing though? Yuuup.

“Talking White” helps people of color get ahead.

Rah Digga, Lord Jamar, And Godfrey Get Into A Real Independence Day Conversation (Trailer)

Another ep of “Yanadameen.” Godfrey is a frequenter over on VladTV, as is Lord Jamar. Jamar gets up with the brother and brings him onto the Godcast. Got it!

Rah Digga puts a series of topical questions to Lord Jamar and Godfrey to get their thoughts in typically raw and unfiltered fashion. The first talking point is the protestor who scaled the Statue of Liberty in protest against President Trump’s hardline immigration policies; Godfrey praises the actions of the protestor but takes a moment to call out Mexicans for their anti-Black racism and highlight the fact that they’re getting their wake-up call now with Trump in office. Rah Digga also asks about the incident between Dame Dash and Lee Daniels over a 2 MILLION DOLLAR loan/investment. Was it right for Dame to step to Daniels like this?

The Story Of How Models Helped Hip-Hop Stars Make Videos That Made Money… Until The Game Changed (Trailer)

VIXEN. Simple, powerful title. Makes sense with coverage of Karrine Steffans (and her book) in this.

Saw this described elsewhere as exploring the ‘Video Vixen Era.’ Never thought of it as an era, but the MODELS (not the rappers or singers) in music videos that caught major buzz before Instagram… yeah, that’s a thing. Should make for some worthwhile watching. That, plus sexy women…

Melyssa Ford, Buffie The Body, Karrine Steffans and more video vixens write themselves back into Hip-Hop history in this BET Original Documentary.
