E-40 Speaks On His ‘Side Hustle’ (Video)

Nice, Tidal. Very nice. Sharing insights on a true rapper / ENTREPRENEUR (yes, all caps on purpose because ‘shouting’ for emphasis) like the Fawty Water.

E-40 has been a West Coast rap ambassador for over three decades but his empire extends beyond his witty slang and hyphy catalog. In this episode of Side Hustle, the Vallejo native details the profitable and sometimes painful lessons he learned while building his business portfolio of wine, cognac, a meats company and other investments.

Keanu Reeves Is Back For ‘Chapter 3’ Of The John Wick Franchise (Trailer)

John Wick was retired when we started this thing right? But folks had to f**k with him (sigh)… You’d think they’d have learned to leave him alone by now.

Then again, Keanu’s character does end up killing most everybody he ‘teaches’ that lesson in his movies. Good for moviegoers, because we keep getting movies full of good, grimy, popcorn-munching azz kickery. Plus, this go ’round… Halle Berry

Regina Hall Promotes Her New Series And Shares Some Of Her Dating Wisdom (Video)

Regina Hall. This interview adds to her level of sexy. You SEE her (obviously), but throughout the course of this interview, you get to see what she is saying.

Regina Hall Talks Relationships, Secret Tips For Women and New Show ‘Black Monday’
Sway’s Universe

I am left with two questions though: (1) Who actually farted and (2) is she really smashing with the Yoni egg in her vijay though… for real??

Jeffrey Wright Stars In HBO’s New Prison Drama “O.G.” (Trailer)

Been following (Jeffrey Wright) since ‘Boardwalk Empire’ days. This one right here. If it got any realer, it’d be a documentary. Realistic, accomplished actors alongside real inmates who are ‘acting’ (because HBO) but not ‘playing,’ filmed in a real prison.

O.G. follows Louis (Jeffrey Wright) a maximum-security prison inmate whose impending release is upended when he takes a new arrival under his wing. Starring Jeffrey Wright, Theothus Carter and William Fichtner. O.G. premieres February 23 at 10PM.
– HBO

And the trailer looks to tease a series that addresses very complex issues: Like when the lady tells Louis (Wright) that she believed he should stay imprisoned for life, even if she believed he was remorseful or reformed. Can a prison system truly reform the incarcerated? If so, is that justice for their victims or loved ones? For society? What about justice/protections/respect for inmates who serve?

This should be good.

Token – “2019 Sway In The Morning Freestyle” (Video)

Token has been through the Sway In The Morning set. They know he is a lyrical hyena! Think he eases back because the pressure is off? Shiiiiiid! If you think that, you don’t know Token. Passionate, aggressive neck-snapping rapping on deck! Watch.

(You might get a little choked up at the end. Fair warning.)

Soope x Joell Ortiz x Fred The Godson – “Ain’t No Sunshine” (Prod. By CZR) [Video]

Powerful lineup blessing the CZR beat. With Soope, Joey O, and The Godson the visuals for this joint seem right at home with a church as the main setting. The mood and mode are low. So is the song. So is the title. “Ain’t No Sunshine” fam.

Lord Finesse Speaks On What Made Gang Starr (DJ Premier x GURU) Special [Video]

If anyone can speak on this, Lord Finesse can. Saying Preemo is a SUPER-producer… all while repping DITC (with its cabal of dope producers)… yeah, that’s a powerful recommendation. And stressing that GURU (RIP) had that monotone style that NO ONE could come close to imitating. Yeah, Finesse is spot on!

Enjoy and reflect on Gang Starr’s greatness. For the Culture!

She Said You Could Smash. But Should You? (Video)

The very stacked Brookelyn came through, said she was down [TF], threw some drinks & drugs down, but passed out before you could even get your draws down. It’s a pop quiz that should NOT even be a quiz, fellas. Watch and see ‘What Would Should You Do?’

Admittedly, the clip could be funnier; but the message couldn’t be more timely. Enjoy the weekend. Have fun. Be responsible.

Get A First Look At “Fast Color,” The Acclaimed Superpowered Flick Coming To Theaters (Trailer)

Coming off a good SXSW run. Cool. Characterizing the hero’s powers as she experiences them during use. Interesting perspective and very cool, too. Powerful abilities on top of that. Abilities which, of course, put her on the run. Toss in tension with the family who she hopes will help her… and action, drama, sci-fi… BOOM!

4-IZE winds down the week with another freestyle over a classic Wu banger. Cash Rules… yeah, yeah, yeah… but what in the Erykah Badu boyfriend fashion is the homie wearing in this clip?? Hahaaa! 4-IZE is certifiably crazy, y’all. But his barz stay up to par though. So he’s alright with us!

Trash Rules Everything Around Me / clean up the country – time to keep it real y’all…

Federal Workers Speak On How it Feels to Be Shut Down (Video)

Backs up against the wall, employed but not gainfully, this clip is representative of the employees and contractors NOT getting paid while President Trump and Congress are at a standstill over the Wall.

Okay. Actually, most everyone else in the situation (other Repubs and Dems in the Senate) are in agreement… at least to the extent we could reopen the government coffers and get these folks paychecks flowing again in the short-term. Now. It. Is. Just. Trump. President Trump. Alone. Standing on his Wall (um… slats… um, whatever)!

All the while. These people’s lives are in limbo. VICE reports (in the short above).

Young M.A – “Bake Freestyle” (Video)

Steady on the grind, taking time out at the house to bless the “Grindin” beat right quick. ‘Nuff heat to bake the Bisquick. It’s 2K19 and Young M.A had to bring it in right. It’s Brooklyn. It’s cold outside in January, but she is standing in the fire, spitting more fire.

Food/Business: Slutty Vegan Levels Up From A Food Truck To A Restaurant In Westview, Atlanta (Video)

This PINKY, nyuh!!

Well, it is her dream; still going and growing strong. Now she has a brick-and-mortar location to serve her patrons. Apparently, Slutty Vegan’s meatless fare with a flare is in high demand. In the South, where we kill and fry everything that won’t defend itself or run, that is quite an accomplishment!

So, I Googled up an Atlanta Eater article on the situation for the numbers: over 1200 served the first day at Westview AND the ‘Gram is on pace to reach 100K followers ASAP.

Impressive, Pinky. Impressive!

Oh, I learned of all this when I saw the homie BigDee noting on his FB timeline that he waited in line for upwards of two hours at the new restaurant to order. Hope it was worth it. Scratch that. Bet your pockets it WILL be worth it if Mr. McRib-Over-Every-Sandwich is willing to wait that long… unless Dee comes back over here and comments otherwise.

Rooting for you, Pinky!

Deeeeeeyuummm! The stacked Canadian (30G-28-42, wowza!) Bryci has definitely mastered another way to go with the try-on video thing. One red hot outfit on the whole time, teasing the hell out of us. Bet I will never take my eyes off that ‘product’… And her hubby JD is the one holding the camera! Thanks for sharing wifey with the world, dude.

By the way, I did some Googling after I was done ogling. If you do the same, you WILL find some stuff that is waaay past ‘Not Safe For Work’ #WOW #BryciIsBanging
