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).

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!

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.

Erika Alexander Speaks On Her Road In Life And Her Career So Far And Her Future Outlook For Entertainment And Her People (Video)

That title is a mouthful, and I swear it STILL does not begin to address the ground this interview covers. So full DJ Envy couldn’t even stay for the whole thing. Had Erika so ‘full’ talking about it she teared up at one point. And wow, Erika is still so gatdam beautiful… and insightful. Watch and digest. May need to rewind at a couple of points.

Speech: Dave Chappelle Accepts Harvard’s WEB DuBois Honor (Video)

That’s what makes us Chappelles great… WE KNOW WHEN TO QUIT!

And just LOOK at the folks Dave is on stage with. WOW! Some awesome company.

Politics: Dave Chappelle Speaks On Kanye West And President Trump (Video)

I’m not mad at Kanye. That’s my brother. I love him… I don’t have to agree with everything he says…
Dave Chappelle

The REALEST talk while still keeping some of the funny in there. We’ve come to expect that from Dave Chappelle. Gotta imagine he has some empathy for an artist who the world has called ‘crazy’ (since he has been there himself).

Comedian Dave Chappelle and Maryland democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous discuss the political divide in the US since President Trump was elected president with CNN’s Van Jones.
– CNN

Great interview clip! Very thoughtful conversation.

Comedy: ‘Kanye West’ Has Some Words… The Best Words… For ‘President Trump’ (Video)

Bwaaaaahahaaaa! Got eeem!

Kanye had to know that that public, very public, White House sit-down with President Trump was going to land him smack dab in the middle of a bunch of memes, spoofs, and other forms of Tom Foolery at his expense. And SNL got it IN on him!

Throwback/Comedy: Redd Foxx (1978 Standup Performance) [Video]

You’ve probably seen Redd Foxx be hilarious on ‘Sanford & Son’ on TV, or on ‘Harlem Nights’ with an ensemble cast of Black Hollywood through the late 1980s. But have you had the pleasure of seeing the late great comic do a standup? If not, cross it off your bucket list.

Chrissy Teigen Vs. The World’s Hottest Hot Wings (Video)

Started the Hot Wing challenge like an O.G., but how will lovely Chrissy be at the end?

Chrissy Teigen kicks off Hot Ones Season 7 in dramatic fashion, taking one of the most unorthodox approaches we’ve seen yet to the wings of death. As she licks her way through the all-new hot-sauce lineup, the cookbook author, model, and entrepreneur discusses her most memorable Twitter wars, recommends the turkey leg at Medieval Times, and breaks down a no-fail recipe for Thai ribs. Watch the epic meltdown, and check out Chrissy’s new book, Cravings: Hungry for More.
– First We Feast

Wow. I just went back through the clip and found the HOTTEST ‘Hot Ones’ moment ever… at the 8:25 mark, when Chrissy asks Sean… “Can I suck on it?”

From that point on, the ‘challenge’ is very different… for me (whew)!

Snoop Dogg Speaks On His Success Thus Far, His Upcoming Play & How He Is No Longer ‘Playing’ With Trump (Video)

Snoop Dogg & Tamar Braxton in a ‘Redemption of a Dogg‘ play… ought to be worth the ticket price if you go to the theater for such. Support us doing us. Always a good look.

Good beginning. Talk from Snoop on faith fills it in; along with some Trumpster commentary and chat on Kanye.

In Houston for the premiere of his Redemption of a Dogg stage play, the West Coast icon stopped by the Madd Hatta Morning Show with Je’Caryous Johnson and Tamar Braxton to discuss the play, Snoop’s thoughts on Kanye, a wild story about B.B. King, Trump, how he’ll always love Houston, faith and more!
