Charlton Palmer Speaks On Being “CP The Artist” & Not Being Put In A Box On Odell’s Roundtable (Video)

Knowledge and confidence in self. VERY important! Watch as CP draws a parallel between his lane in the art world and the rap game. Dude has been ‘Kanye-ing the game’ for some time now. Another dope interview from the homie Odell.

Charlton Palmer aka CP The Artist is a self-taught artist who refuses to be locked down by a particular style or medium. A native of NJ who has made Atlanta his home now knows firsthand what it’s like to try and get your name out in a new city. He talks about how he balances working his craft while also having to be his own publicist and anything else it calls for to run his business. It’s a great discussion on staying creative and also what he has coming up in the near future. So check his work out at cptheartist.com and let he and I know what you got from the discussion!

When They See “When They See Us” People Will Really Understand The ‘Central Park Five’ Story (Trailer)

“When They See Us” was conceptualized and co-written by Ava DuVernay for Netflix and it is coming to take hearts and minds and twist them… to make us feel everything the falsely accused (and eventually exonerated) Central Park Five.

Just LOOK at who is attached. The exec producers (Oprah Winfrey, Robert De Niro) all the through to casting (Michael K. Williams, John Leguizamo, Felicity Huffman, Niecy Nash, Blair Underwood)… they will draw MILLIONS of viewers! We must learn. ALL of us.

Based on a true story that gripped the country, “When They See Us” will chronicle the notorious case of five teenagers of color, labeled the Central Park Five, who were convicted of a rape they did not commit. The four-part limited series will focus on the five teenagers from Harlem — Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise. Beginning in the spring of 1989, when the teenagers were first questioned about the incident, the series will span 25 years, highlighting their exoneration in 2002 and the settlement reached with the city of New York in 2014.

“When They See Us” premieres May 31 only on Netflix.

Common x The Sesame Street Muppets – “Respect” (Give It, Live It) [Video]

Usually only get Sesame Street infused with Hip-Hop when YouTubers take it upon themselves to do their own mashups. But this is cool. Push down that urge to judge it as corny and get the message and where it is aimed: Children (and parents) need this plain & simple direct messaging on RESPECT.

Messaging and respect. That’s as Hip-Hop as it gets, folks. Kudos to Common and all the Muppets on the Street for representing good values.

Eboni K. Williams Speaks On Stepping Away From Fox News Without A Firm Notion Of What She Was Stepping Toward Next (Video)

I really like this. Watch through to the end. The genuine sweetness Eboni doles out to the Breakfast Club trio is Black love AND a celebration of Black excellence. Nah, she could NOT stay at Fox News and stay Black like that.

(Oh, and she addresses why she was there on that channel for as long as she was; and why she feels there should always be one of us on there.)

Eboni K. Williams, who used to be a co-host on Fox News, explains her experiences working at the conservative news network. Williams also talked about her times as a lawyer in the courtroom and how it relates to working in media now.

Presenting Large Professor, One Of The Architects of “Illmatic” (Video)

Yes, Large Professor is right: “Illmatic” has stood the test of time AND Nas is that god on the mic. Nas is nice!

“We’re rocking off the same energy, and it stood the test of time.”
Large Professor reflects on God’s Son’s transformation from rugged youth to internationally renowned writer… and how the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

DL Hughley Will Not Apologize For His Statements Regarding Terry Crews’ Abuse (Video)

[I] will not defer my vantage point, my viewpoint, to anybody… I believe what I believe. I’ll say what I say… It ain’t the first time a big dude wanted to beat the sh!t out of me ’cause I said something…

Okay then.

DL Hughley is on with Vlad again. But this time, Vlad brought the camera over to DL’s show set for the interview. Thoughtful rebuttal, especially given the time DL has had to mull things over. His stated views have not shifted, whether that wins him any new or returning fans; or Terry Crews favor.

In this clip, DL Hughley speaks on his previous VladTV interview going viral due to his statements on Terry Crews, were he laughed and made humor out of the actor getting fondled by his Hollywood agent. He says that he stands by his previous viewpoints and the right to his own opinion, while reaffirming that he would never let somebody violate him in the way Crews was allegedly abused. From there, he speaks to how he views the #MeToo movement as somewhat disingenuous, questioning why they care so much when a Black man gets fondled but not at all when he gets shot. With that said, Hughley makes it clear that he apologizes to nobody, though he’s open to more conversation even if he doesn’t have to agree.

Dame Dash Evaluates Some Of The Hottest New Female Rappers Out Now (Video)

I will admit. This is not entirely what I would have expected from Dame on this topic, but there’s nothing out of line with what the boss says. You don’t have to entirely agree. I don’t. But I do entirely respect this piece. And all the Eye Candy… I mean… It is noon (c’mon son)!

Dame Dash made a name for himself as a co-founder of the iconic Hip-Hop label, Roc-A-Fella, so he knows a thing or two about emerging artists. For this episode of ‘The Cosign,’ we recruited the self-proclaimed “boss” to review videos from up and coming women in rap.

From Megan Thee Stallion’s “Big Ole Freak” to Bhad Bhabie’s “Babyface Savage” to Melii’s “See Me,” Dash shared his thoughts on some of Hip-Hop’s newest acts.

Presenting DJ Premier, One Of The Architects of “Illmatic” (Video)

Wow. “Illmatic” turns 25 years old on April 19th. When I realized that, at first, I was like, “Damn. I’m old.” But that seminal Nas project is a classic. Therefore, I’m not old… I’m a classic! Now I can enjoy watching Preemo speak on Nas’ classic LP as one of its architects.

(Don’t come for me. That’s just how it’s gonna be. End of beef. The tips are cooked!)

“Not the one that’s on the album. The one on the album is a remix.” During the making of Illmatic, DJ Premier made one version of “Represent,” then he heard what L.E.S. and Q-Tip did on “Life’s a B*tch” and “One Love” respectively. It sent him right back into the lab.

Gotta give me a bit of a late pass, but this is good. Been watching Pvnch do a few of these episodes. Good interviewer and host. Good at getting guests to really relax and open up. And when I saw that he got Freeway to speak on Jay-Z, his dialysis, and more. Yeah, another must-watch.

D. L. Hughley’s Show Starts With Tax Day, Talks About Tiger Woods’ Athletics, And Talks To Russell Peters (Video)

Did… did anyone get the ‘Athletics’ thing I was trying to do in the title? Slipping in ‘Russell’ Peters… a tongue-in-cheek reference to Russell Athletics. Anyone?

Okay moving on.

Watch the show. Try to keep your blood pressure low as Fox News dares speak on Nipsey Hussle (no respect, or respek, for the fallen brother), too.
