Interview

GLC Says Kanye West Defines Success As Being Embraced By White People (Video)

Don’t know if this is all real talk, sneak dissing, some dry snitching or what… but this word on Yeezus comes from a [likely former] homie of his who would know. Rapper GLC came up with Yeezy in The Go Getters crew back in Chicago back in the day. Well, GLC interviewed with The Chicago Morning Takeover show, and spilled a big bowl of Kanye beans – on everything from the hospitalization to the new hair coloring (blonde) of Ye.

Hey, we all have our weirdness; whether in phases or on the daily. But the most damning shot GLC might have let fly is alleging Kanye’s life goal of turning in his hood pass.

He equated success to being accepted by the caucasian masses. So if the caucasian people embraced him, that means he made it.

Wowwww.

Snoop Dogg – “Trash Bags” (Live Performance)

These guys know how to mix fun and serious business. Jimmy Kimmel and Snoop Dogg doing the damn thing on the tube again; not ‘roasting’ on Comedy Central, rather with Snoop performing “Trash Bags” on Jimmel Kimmel Live.

And the re-THICK-ulous dancing girls on stage made it an extra ‘special’ night on stage. But for something really special, hit the jump (more footage of Snoop’s time with Kimmel).

Philadelphia 76’er Joel Embiid Makes A Play For Rihanna At The Bar (Video)


I mean… look at myself!

Hahaaaaa! You know how some athletes might clam up, play tough or off-brush when talk show hosts hint at blatantly push a love-life line of questionning? That is NOT Joel Embiid’s problem…AT ALL!

Shoot your shot, player! Not mad at you. Of course, you might consider that Jamele Hill is looking pretty nice and Kelly Rowland is hella sexy (as always); and they’re right there.

Because we’re considering it. Yeaaahhh, considering all that right now…

Marketing GENIUS! For one, going on the ‘Late Late Show’ rocking the BIG3 tee shirt and ‘demonstrating’ some expected rough stuff from his new basketball league (more on BIG3 here) on host James Corden in this segment… then, THENNNN letting it ‘slip’ that another installment of the beloved ‘Friday’ movie series (“Last Friday,” apparently) is in the works.

Big Boi Says White Suits Are Overrated, But How About Blowjob Robots And Other Stuff? (Video)

Big Boi rates bowling, blowjob robots (what??!), Atlanta’s oldest strip club, Hatsune Miku, Sade, pre-rolled joints, and more… No scale, just judging things as ‘pass’ or ‘passed over’ – Over/Under [rated] that is.

Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener in the OTHERtone studio with Kaytranada. Appreciation from your peers, even as a producer, is one thing. But props from Pharrell… commendable, noteworthy, epic!

At first, Pharrell had trouble describing Kaytranada’s music and its consistent effect on the listener; then he settled on ‘signature sound’ as a descriptor. Nice.

Gary Vaynerchuk Talks To John Legend About Making Big Songs, Staying Humble And More (Video)

Gary Vaynerchuk, the serial entrepreneur and CEO/Founder of VaynerMedia, talks to the world-renown “All Of Me” singer (and lucky hubby to the HOTTIE Chrissy Teigen – see how HOT here). They speak on the paradigm shift in the music industry – from physical to digital, from middlemen-driven to artist-driven – John’s career-before-music job at Boston Consulting Group. In fact, they mention that they taped this interview in the building where BCG is currently headquartered!

Hear the story John about how John left the corporate world; choosing crooning over consulting. That feels RISKY, but freeing right?

(Had to break those ‘gold handcuffs’… Wow, that’s a powerful term!)

So much other good stuff in this episode of #AskGaryVee too. Watch!

Ice Cube’s BIG3 Basketball League Is Coming To Barclays Center This Summer (Video)

Okay, this could be a score for FS1 on Monday nights. Loving the names of the teams for BIG3 Basketball at Barclays (after the jump). Now, if they can avoid the XFL trap of getting too gimmicky with a game folks love… just make exciting basketball… not reinventing the game, just eliminating the lame from that lane… we got something! Plus, handchecking and fairplay freethrows.

Watching Cube and Rappaport break it down in conversation might pique your curiosity to tune in June.

The 50 Cent “Grapefruit” joke and the Richard Pryor jokes launched into space… great answers; esp. on the fly. Plus, wanting to kill the ‘foodie’ trend (although, who doesn’t wanna be a foodie for real; or at least a guest on Action Bronson’s “F**k That’s Delicious.” Watch above for more rapid-fire interview responses. Cool and funny, with good Aziz insights.

On the eve of the Met Gala, “Master of None” co-creator Aziz Ansari makes us a smoothie while answering 73 unexpected questions. Aziz talks about his childhood crush on Elaine Benes, his displeasure with the term “foodie,” and tries to rank his favorite Kanye West albums.

Comedy: Aziz Ansari Diversifies ‘The Late Show’ (Video)

Mixing that Brown with that White… Not a good idea when drinking… but a GREAT idea when it comes to comedy and late night TV. Let the hilarity ensue as Aziz Ansari integrates Colbert’s show. Haaaahahaaa!

When Aziz is sitting next to Stephen, 100% of the people on “The Late Show” are from South Carolina, and 50% are not White. That’s progress!

Neil deGrasse Tyson Talks About The ‘Pale Blue Dot’ And Our Place In The Universe (Video)

I remember a show on TV growing up called “Big Blue Marble” that hinted at the smallness of planet Earth compared to the vastness of space; but it still referred to it as the ‘biggest marble’ in the game. But…BUT… watch modern science guy Neil deGrasse Tyson show us just how small our home is as a place in the universe… but still let us know that we are STILL special.

Bill Nye Speaks On His Mission To ‘Save The World’ And On How Political Science Has Become (Video)

The hero we have been waiting for to return… It’s Bill Nye The Science Guy! He’s here to “Save The World” with not only the spread of scientific interest & knowledge, but apparently promoting a point of view. Science is political. You actually know that. Think about great socio-political battles we have fought. They have been over questions that put politics smack dab in the middle of what should be apolitical pursuits: When does life begin (e.g. pro life vs. pro choice)? Are slaves really people or something ‘less than’ that should be owned or controlled (e.g. pre- through post civil war, the battle for civil rights in courtrooms and on congressional floors)? And there is a ‘less uncomfortable’ (but no less important) battle that Bill mentions here… Is Climate Change (e.g. Global Warming) a man-made phenomena that we can/must stop?

As Flavor Flav would say, “We got some nonbelievers out there!” So the fight is on. Save us Science Guy… with KNOWLEDGE… not politics!

The Science Guy sits down with Bridget Carey to talk about his new Netflix show and the three biggest problems the world is facing.
– CNET

Great interview! Take away two things: (1) Most important, Bill is back, now on Netflix, AND (2) Bridget Carey is hella cute…had to be said.
