Kanan’s Nudity On “Power” Surprised 50 Cent… And His Aunt Geraldine (Video)

The opening theme of “Power” focuses on coming from the ‘poorest part’ of a ‘big rich town’… Well, show creator Courtney A. Kemp didn’t tell producer and star Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson (playing the arch enemy, Kanan, on the show) that his private ‘part’ would be prominently featured in episode four of the hit series.

Bad move. The bad blood caused by that surprise full frontal shown on-screen still lingers to this day. Fiddy has learned to joke about it, but we’re not sure about his auntie Geraldine. We can only hope she’s calmed down. Ha!

Watch. You gotta.

“Tiny Desk Concert” Series Welcomes Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals (Video)

Anderson .Paak and his band The Free Nationals… Much of their sound is layered atop a soulful Hip-Hop foundation; from there, your safest bet is to call it a hodgepodge of genres in the best way possible. Guitarist Jose Rios and bassist Kelsey Gonzalez inject a hard-rock edge into the Hi-Tek-produced “Come Down,” this set’s opening number. When you hear them play the first few jazz chords of “Heart Don’t Stand A Chance,” it’s hard to simply call this R&B…

But what you can call this is a dope set, a mini-concert, a NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Yeah, call it that. Now listen to the band and .Paak.

Science: Just Over In The Next Galaxy, Could Proxima B Support Life? (Video)

Watch this video with the hope of a sci-fi space explorer, knowing that science fiction becomes science fact more & more nowadays. Astronomers have made a startling discovery, the full implications of which are yet to be figured out: A planet they call Proxima B, thought to be orbiting a red dwarf star (Proxima Centauri) in a “nearby” galaxy, could (emphasis on could) be Earth-like enough to support life as we know it!! Watch the video, and ponder the possibilities.

(Oh, don’t pack your spacesuit just yet, though. We’re talking a distance of four light years. In other words, it would take four years for light to make the trip. So…we need somebody to invent warp or light-speed travel first…then have four years worth of ‘road trip’ music on deck.)

Goodness gracious! Okay, pop quiz: You walk into that bar you’ve been meaning to try for Happy Hour and MizzJSantana – looking like THIS – is sweeping up. She winks and says, “Aw sweetie. We don’t open for another couple hours. We got these $5 waters though…”

De La Soul – “Greyhounds” feat. Usher

Can you believe there are still more bangers to drop from De La Soul’s new album “and the Anonymous Nobody…” though? You should, because here is another – “Greyhounds” featuring Usher. So dope… and there’s a story behind this jawn, too.

We were taking a break from recording to drive and get some food. Along the way we passed the bus station and someone in the car said, in a tour guide voice, “and to the left is the bus station where people come from everywhere to get their piece of Hollywood.” I immediately thought that would be a great song, having the entry and departure point of the story be the Greyhound bus station. A few weeks later, music from a jam session presented itself as a perfect fit for that subject, birthing the song “Greyhounds.”

Eye Candy: Wendy Hazze (Video)

So when Wendy Hazze finally says come holler at her ’round the barber shop for that good cut… and you shower up and say that ‘thank you’ prayer then jet to the shop… Will you expect this treatment? Better question: You won’t be that mad will you? Talk about ‘trim’ though. Wowzerrrs!

Yeah. I’m waiting until Wendy’s chair is open, sir. Yes, I know there is a line. I don’t mind waiting. Kinda like waiting on her to accept me as an Instagram follower anyway.

Why Racism Isn’t Just a Southern Problem (Video)

Sure, Harriet Tubman led slaves away from the South to escape slavery… the Jim Crow and Civil Rights black & white photos and videos show the South as the true ‘home’ of racism… BUT, let Franchesca Ramsey hip you to fact that racism ain’t just in the South good buddy!

While the stereotypical racist in the US might be a southern good ole boy, the reality is that “progressive” Northern and Western states have had a pretty long and terrible history with racism as well. Whether it’s the history of sundown towns that threatened violence against people of color if they were found there after dark, the incredibly racist founding of Oregon, or the long history of redlining to prevent home ownership, it seems like racism certainly wasn’t and isn’t just a southern phenomenon.

Go Franchesca! Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show was cancelled, but you’ve got too much to share with the world to stop now. No joke. Keep it pushing!

Kwesy Mojo “Burn The Industry” (Video)

It’s no secret that Hip Hop is held in a higher regard in a lot of places overseas than here in America. Kwesy Mojo was born and raised in Africa but now resides in the states.  He like most youths when they hear HipHop fell in love with it and sought to add his own twist to the genre.  The first visual off his latest mixtape titled Self Help is for the track Burn the Industry.  Shot in his native homeland Ghana he brings to life how he plans to shake things up and Burn up the Industry.  Directed by Kobe N. Debrah and co directed by Kwesy himself you see instantly that a high level of production was put into making this.  So if you feel some heat coming at you remember you were warned that Kwesy is coming to burn down the industry.  We all can use Self Help so do yourself a favor listen to the new Self Help mixtape by Kwesy Mojo.

Consequence Says He Ghostwrote For Jay-Z? (Video)

Not Jay Hova. Nope. Maybe? If so, this is big! According to Bossip and others’ interpretations, Cons said on Power 106 that he and Kanye West actually came up with the verses for “Encore” off “The Black Album.” Is he saying that Jay wasn’t even involved in conceiving the rhyme? Is this a slip or shade? Most important to the Hip-Hop: Is it TRUE?

See the interview for yourself above. Lean in at about the 8-minute mark…
