Know how when you are watching a video on Facebook and the next one just starts playing automatically before you know it? That’s what got me started on Epic Meal Time vids. And this one caught me up the same way. Watch, and be prepared to repeat W-T-F over and over!

Cree Summer Has Done WAY More The Be ‘Freddie’ On “A Different World” (Video)

Of course, a lot of us are going to remember Cree Summer as super-cutie hippie Hillman chick on “A Different World” on NBC back in the day… but “Freddie” has done a LOT of work – in voiceovers. Check it out!

Recognize this voice? That’s right—it’s the sound of your childhood. As the vocal force behind Rugrats’ Susie Carmichael and Tiny Toon Adventures’ Elymyra, Cree Summer has made some of your favorite cartoons come to life.

Lupe Fiasco – “Mural Jr.” (Live Performance) [Video]

Live. Lyricism. Lupe. Under the bridge. On these streets, where it matters. Unexpected but not uncharacteristic. Fiasco is only a ‘disaster’ to wack rappers’ careers. The rest of us in the real Hip-Hop Nation… we fux with dude heavy! Stuff like this is why.

For his live performance of “Mural Jr.” we took him underneath NYC’s Williamsburg Bridge for a shoot that nods to the ‘Drogas Wave’ theme. There’s a clear view of the East River waters next to the downtown Manhattan walkway ‘Lu prowled while rhyming a cappella. His inspired take on the track (the sequel to the ‘Tetsuo & Youth’ original, “Mural”) gains extra emotional clout by insightfully incorporating the local landscape. Hold up!

Even the bridge above had to make some noise and give love #HoldUp

Swizz Beatz – “Preach” feat. Jim Jones (Video)

Off the strength of Swizz on Funk Flex’s freestyle and the “JEEEzuz” overdubs (ha), I had to post a vid of his. And here’s a good one!

Jada Pinkett Smith ‘Breaks’ Will At The ‘Red Table’ (Video)

I wonder how this ep came to be. I mean, I believe Jada was getting numbers and moving her own ship with her own steam. And while the ‘why’ behind husband Will saying ‘yes’ to a sit-down is a no-brainer, it doesn’t seem to be needed. Perhaps that makes it a bit more authentic: They/Will did not have to do this. But man, did he (one of the best)! Just watch. And these are just ‘outtakes’ (full episode embedded after the jump).

Following months of “Red Table Talk” shooting in their house, Jada Pinkett Smith invites Will on as a guest and he finally realizes the scope of her massive TV show.

Even posted it to his channel.

(Full disclosure: ‘Sesquipedalian’ is one of my favorite five-dollar words!)

Regina Hall And Her Love Of “Breastaurants” (Video)

Yup. Sound it out, and think about how crazy-sexy-cool Regina is, and you will get it right away.

Regina Hall talks about Support the Girls, why she enjoys dining at “breastaurants” and the requirements of becoming a nun.
– Late Night with Seth Meyers

Mm mm mm. Speaking of can ‘get it’… Regina. Wowzers!

Anderson .Paak Vs. The World’s Hottest… Vegan Nuggets (Video)

A vegan version of the Hot Wing challenge? Okay. So this time it’s about the heat, not the meat… Hmm, feels like I ought to say ‘pause’ here. Bwaahahaa!

Anderson .Paak is a critically-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated singer, rapper, drummer, and producer—but how is he with hot food? Find out as the multi-talented musician scurries up Mount Scoville with host Sean Evans, one hot sauce-drenched vegan nugget at a time. Along the journey, Anderson discusses opening for Beyonce, defends his Coldplay obsession, and gives details on his new Dr. Dre-assisted album, Oxnard, dropping November 16.
– First We Feast

I will say this is probably the funniest convo during a Hot Ones challenge I have watched.

Swizz Beatz x French Montana | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #110 (Video)

Definitely a ‘zone’ and a ‘feeling’ for this Funk Flex freestyle. Has there ever been hooka on the set for one of these? Okay, French, let’s go! Live overdubs provided by Swizzy… until he had to jump the track and beat the beat with some barz himself!

Comedy: When ‘Cosby’ Is Your Cellmate (Video)

Hey, you don’t come in this cell with all the filth and foul. Understand that, and share your Jello with your new cellmate, newbie. This is actually hilarious if you can set aside the real-life challenges of Bill Cosby’s incarceration.

(For the record, that fight is not over… because APPEALS process… just saying.)

Styles P & Dave East Discussing If Lyricism Still Matters In Hip-Hop ‘For The Record’ (Video)

Does lyricism still matter? In a word, YES! Whether you believe it is ‘necessary’ for a joint to be called ‘real Hip-Hop’ to have it… that discussion being a thing, even today, lets you know that lyricism is still a thing.

Although Yonkers MC Styles P and Harlem rapper Dave East represent two different generations of Hip-Hop, each artist is known for his lyrical prowess. The duo recently teamed up for their joint project ‘Beloved,’ which densely packs vivid street tales throughout its 13 tracks. On the latest episode of ‘For The Record,’ the New York natives sat down with Genius’ Head of Artist Relations Rob Markman to discuss the collaborative album as well as the decline of lyricism in Hip-Hop.

Steve Harvey’s Response To An Audience With A Stuttering Problem Is Literally Therapeutic (Video)

Respek on Steve Harvey’s name for this. All this. The sista is beautiful. It was just that her situation was ugly. But it looks like that is about to look up for her.

When an audience member asks about dating with a stutter, Steve opens up about his own personal struggle. This may be the most powerful moment yet.
Steve Harvey TV

I sooo wanted to start this post with just how fine the sista in this is… But I wanted her to be taken seriously (just as she desires, per the clip). Of course, I did slide her into the Noon spot (because she is definitely some Eye Candy).

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

Big Boi comes down from The Planet Of Stankonia to do a Tiny Desk Concert… ON IT!

The energy in the room was buoyant and vibrant from the moment they walked in the door. OutKast star Big Boi, Sleepy Brown of the prolific Atlanta production collective Organized Noize, and their eight-member backing band have been working together for 20-plus years, and their chemistry is instantaneous and undeniable.
– NPR Music

This the loudest I have ever heard a Tiny Desk Concert be. Dope!

Amber Stevens West Brings Her ‘African’ Fiancée Home To Meet Her Family (Trailer)

Looks like another one of those is-it-worth-going-through-all-that romantic comedies. The crazy thing is I hate these until I sit down and watch them. Then I end up liking about half of them (not bad). But I don’t want to like them. They just win me over; starting with getting me to even watch in the first place.

And how do they get me to watch? Well, “Love Jacked” obviously knows the secret… cast a super-cute lead like Amber Stevens West (wowzers)! “Love Jacked” debuts in theaters October 26, 2018.

(Full disclosure: I actually like the supporting cast for this one, too.)

Trevor Noah Speaks On GOP Voter Suppression & The Mid-Term Elections In Georgia (Video)

Yeah, Trevor. Good point: Funny how EVERY time we catch ‘them’ in a move to pass a law to restrict voting, it ALWAYS affects people of color DISPROPORTIONATELY! And by ‘funny’ I don’t mean… well, I am NOT laughing.

Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate for governor of Georgia, has made efforts to hold up 53,000 voter registrations, 70% of which belong to Black voters, all while maintaining his job as Georgia Secretary of State, a role in which he oversees the very election he’s running in. This is some Africa-level s**t.

Mike Tyson Speaks On His Comedy Show, Mental Health, And Tupac (Video)

Crazy to think that if history would have worked out differently, Tupac would likely telling stories about how he was there at the Tyson fights. Instead, we get Iron Mike talking about ‘Pac and the night he was shot. Understandably, this saddens The Champ; as it does us all.

Good interview. You can even fire one up and smoke out while you watch… That way you can truly be like Mike. Haha!

Andre 3000 Coming Back To The Big Screen In A Sci-Fi Thriller Called “High Life” (Trailer)

Well. This looks… ominous.

Okay, so don’t try to figure out everything that is going on in this trailer. There is enough meat in what is plain to see: Andre 3000 is back on the big screen (November 7 in France, in 2019 in the U.S.) with a box office hitter like Robert Pattinson (dude from the “Twilight” movies), in a sci-fi thriller that includes a space trip to a black hole.

Yeah, we good. See you next year 3 Stacks.

Sports/History: Tommie Smith Raised A ‘Black Power’ Fist During The Medal Ceremony At The 1968 Olympics… With No Regrets (Video)

Talk about REPRESENTING! You know the black and white video at the Olympic games back, back in the day, with the raised fists in it? Yes, this guy, that part!

Tommie Smith sits down with Bill Rhoden to discuss the 50th anniversary of his iconic gesture at the Olympics and how it is relevant in these times.

Shout to John Carlos (the other athlete who raised his fist on the podium), too. Watch this though. Great insights on what modern day athletes can and should be doing with their platforms for humanity, applauding Colin Kaepernick for his taking a knee and taking a stand.
