Nia Long Just Gave Kendrick Lamar The Permission (Video)

See? Nia had no shade for K.Dot. She just did not recognize the new Compton Don… yet. But see, now that she does, she gave him PERMISSION to use her name in that next dope rhyme.

Savage Savvy!

But let’s keep rewinding at the end where lovely Ms. Long stressed that that gold-beaded dress was on a mission: To ‘hold it in and push it OUT!’ Mercy!

(So… that’s why that red carpet clip is after the jump. Yes and more yes yes, indeed!)

Being Broke: Ain’t That A Mother? (Video)

Issa Rae is always (1) looking super-cute and (2) saying something worthwhile (even when she is being funny). Here she explains to Roland Martin how she got something going when she had nothing in her pockets or going for her. Grind meets Creativity on the ultimate plane of existence; a ‘starving artist’ who found ways to feed herself… steak!

(Amazing what she did with a little lot of help from her friends.)

Lebron James, Chris Bosh, And Drake… Interview Each Other? (Video)

…two of the greatest guys that I’ve ever encountered… We’ve done things that people know about… and don’t know about…
Lebron James

This group sit-down, chit-chat, termed as a three-way interview, or something like that, is pretty damn dope. “A conversation amongst friends” is the right way to describe it. Good stuff.

(So, clearly, Drizzy is the joke-cracker of the crew. Bosh right in there with the silly with ’em.)

Taking The Knee: If Terry Crews Was Still In The League, He Would Kneel (Video)

Damn. The preview clip. Crews popped! Got a point though. Football, as we know it in The States, is pretty much just “American football”… The world doesn’t play it that way. We are ‘playing ourselves’ if we think the world gives a good van DAM about the Sunday games or whether we boycott them.

BUT… He does talk some real talk about what everyone in the WORLD would care about… human lives, liberty, love… or the lack thereof. The U.S. nor the NFL, really not loving Black people.

All that and more. Plus Terry with a great perspective on your worth as a HUMAN BEING.

Watch!

Sports/Politics: Bob Costas Declares That President Trump Has Galvanized The #TakeAKnee Movement (Video)

Do you want a President of the United States who, even if you’re giving him the benefit of that doubt, is so tone deaf to the racial implications of this?
Bob Costas

Right on time! There was so much on Kaep and #TakeAKnee this past weekend and even before. Wasn’t sure how to cover it all here. But then veteran sportscaster/commentator Bob Costas comes through and wraps it with a bow!

NBC Sports broadcaster Bob Costas speaks to CNN’s John Berman and Alisyn Camerota after President Donald Trump criticized the NFL and players who took a knee during the national anthem.

DL Hughley Speaks On Generational Wealth, The Struggle For Civil Rights For Gay People Vs. Black People, And How Comedy Has Helped Humans Evolve (Video)

Black people are jealous of gay people… It’s not hate. It’s jealousy.

Interesting how taglines are chosen. This clip is actually a Part 10 of what we thought was a six-part conversation with DL Hughley. And it is entitled “Black People are Jealous of Gay People,” which is covered in here. BUT Hughley’s thoughts on how important and intrinsic comedy is to humanity are the bulk of what was discussed, and so incredibly insightful. Watch above.

D.L. Hughley opened up to VladTV about his thoughts on generational wealth, his favorite comedians, and how comedy has helped humans evolve.

When it comes to his favorite comedians, D.L. named off Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Redd Foxx, and Robin Harris, and he shared why Dick Gregory and Mark Twain illustrated the human condition in the best way. He also mentioned coming up with Jamie Foxx and being mad that someone could be as talented as the “Ray” actor.

After sharing his thoughts on how Ellen was integral in the way people saw the gay community, D.L. explains how comedy has led to the evolution of humans. You can hear more about what he had to say in the above clip.

Western History Vs. African History (Video)

Hmmm… How deep can deep get? Africans did not even see themselves as Africans, or being tied to the African continent… and even the name “Africa” is derivative of what Westerners / Europeans imposed. Watch Dr. John Henrik Clarke drop serious science and knowledge on that, and more, above.

An analysis of the history of Africa as compared to Western civilization. European scholars asserted that the so-called ‘Egyptians’ were non-African until C. Diop’s melanin pigmentation test on Pharaohs proved otherwise.

Prophets Of Rage Speak On The New Album And On Trump Not Being The Sole Reason For The Group’s Being (Video)

Bahaaa! Timmy C. with the ex-girlfriend level of intensity in getting controversial documentarian (and fan of Rage Against The Machine, Cypress Hill, and Public Enemy) Michael Moore to do the Prophets Of Rage music video… pays off.

Prophets Of Rage (Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord) came together during 2016’s tumultuous election to combat the coming storm. Fresh off the road and riled up following last summer’s highly successful “Make America Rage Again” tour, the group knew it could evolve from protest performance art with a tactical mission, to a stand-alone entity with creative ideas all its own. At its core, Prophets Of Rage functions not only on a love of music, but a deep belief in its power as a tool, and a weapon. The group stopped by the BUILD Studio to discuss their new self-titled album.
– BUILD Series

Egos put aside for the music and the mission and the creative process. Hear the supergroup talk about it all above. Shout out to ATL’s own DJ Lord in there, too.

Angela Rye Talks About President Trump Being In ‘Over His Head’ In Responses To Hurricane Harvey And To North Korea (Video)

Yes yes y’all! The crew welcomes back Angela Rye. In this interview clip, she talks about President Trump’s initial response to the victims of Hurricane Harvey (“good luck”), about how even the Trump Administration’s attempts to help have hurt (e.g. removing regulatory checks for bridges make building them quicker, but not necessarily as safe)… There’s a LOT to unpack in her commentary, as usual.

The Assist is the newest series from DraftKings, who bring you the game inside the game, bringing fans closer to the games they love. Series host Johnno Wilson serves as the personal assistant to the stars, helping some of the biggest names in football run some of their daily errands.
