Interview: Morris Day Had To Learn To Flip His “Off” Switch (Video)

Morris Day. Genius. Epitome of cool (C-O-O-L). But his story did not start that way. He had to be taught. Who taught him? Who do you think?

The legendary singer opens up on Access Daily about his new memoir, “On Time: A Princely Life in Funk,” in which he gets candid about his life and memories of Prince.

David Copperfield Speaks On His Most Iconic Magic Tricks Over The Years (Video)

TIFF’s In-Depth Conversation With Michael B. Jordan & Jamie Foxx Is Both Light-Hearted And Heavy (Video)

Man. Jamie was funny enough as the class clown to get the teacher to give him a weekly five-minute set AND keep some Crips laughing. And that’s just the top of the convo. Plus you can go on the career journey with Michael… killing the game #Killmonger

Hollywood megastars Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx are both at the top of their game. They first gained fame for roles on television: Foxx with In Living Color in 1991 and later The Jamie Foxx Show, and Jordan with his heartbreaking turn as Wallace in HBO’s The Wire. In 2013, Jordan made his major feature-film breakthrough in Ryan Coogler’s acclaimed Fruitvale Station. He has collaborated with Coogler on two more game changers: Creed, their acclaimed expansion of the Rocky saga; and the mega-hit Black Panther. In 2016, Jordan founded his production company Outlier Society in order to focus on more eclectic and diverse stories and voices. Outlier Society recently co-produced HBO Films’ Emmy-nominated adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, which netted Jordan a Producers Guild Award. Foxx is renowned for powerful lead performances in Ray, for which he won an Academy Award, Michael Mann’s neo-noir Collateral, and Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. TIFF proudly presents this conversation with two iconic artists and producers about their creative process, their desire to tell inclusive stories, and Just Mercy, their highly anticipated new film premiering at the Festival.

Politics: Jeff Johnson Leads A Power-Packed Panel Of Pundits In Discussing Today’s Black Agenda And Campaign 2020 (Video)

This feels like what a TV station calling itself REVOLT should be doing with its platform, at least in significant part. Very varied viewpoints from and in the Black community are presented and explored here, which is a good thing. Folks (e.g. we and the people who want our votes) need to understand that we are not a monolith, a block, a sector, a checklist item, etc. for the campaign… nor do we necessarily ‘win’ when ‘our candidate’ (whatever that means) wins.

Go get a snack and a beverage, and come back focused. ‘Bout to be some real talk. Necessary talk!

T.I., Killer Mike, Candace Owens, Steven Pargett Of Trap The Vote, Katrina Pierson, & Tamika D Mallory have an open and honest conversation about politics, and the culture we live in today.
– REVOLT TV

Be forewarned: You will get agitated and frustrated. Hang in there. Especially because there is thoughtful, useful insight shared EVERY TIME we get a chance to hear from Killer Mike. Much respect and respek on the name Michael Render!
