Interview

Pusha T Speaks On His ‘Run For the Oceans’ And Says “King Push” Is 85% Complete (Video)

Interesting. Instead of moping about ‘taking the L’ in the recent U.S. Presidential election, Pusha T is getting into being more ‘self-governing’ and pushing the causes he is interested in (with no more ties to the White House)… and partnering with companies in line with them.

Adidas and Parley join forces to help draw attention to and preserve the world’s oceans. Pusha T performs and speaks on the importance of brand activism and his love for Adidas.
– Complex News

Hmm… Push drones on and on a bit about Yeezy’s beats being the driver for choosing his production to dominate the forthcoming album… over his OGs The Neptunes (Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams). Not disrespectful really. Kanye is a well-known worldwide all-time beast on them beatz. But, maybe, someone might feel slightly slighted with how ‘energetic’ Push got when he got the question. Just saying.

‘Alien Body’ Unearthed In Nazca, Peru… Is It A Hoax? Are You Sure? (Video)

It looks like it could be fake to me, but you never know…

A new anomalous discovery has been unearthed in Peru. Join Gaia’s ongoing investigation and decide for yourself if this is proof of a non-human species.
– Ancient Origins

Still working on carbon dating and DNA testing for authenticity, and to determine age and gender of the mummified figures (current scientific ‘guesses’… about 1900 years and female). Hit the jump for another report and video (from Collective Evolution), featuring an in-depth interview with renown investigative reporter Jaime Maussan.

Man, oh man. Just when evolution-deniers get textbooks printed that challenge the theory of evolution we get this… someone’s head might pop.

Tiffany Haddish Speaks On Her Movie “Girls Trip,” Her Harrowing Life Journey And More (Video)

You know, I have considered comedian and actor Tiffany Haddish a wonderful combination of Honey (Eye Candy) and hilarity for the longest time. Been checking for her – and watching her grow a noteworthy career since the Def Comedy Jam days. She’s popped up in plenty of spots with a hot mic and a chuckling crowd – Starz (Martin Lawrence’s 1st Amendment Stand Up), Comedy Central shows and more.

Tiffany Haddish speaks on “Girls Trip,” escaping death, raising her siblings & more.
– Breakfast Club Power 105.1 FM

Cute. Funny. Definitely both. But her life story. I mean… she tells it in a ‘cute & funny’ way over the course of the interview embedded above… but the only word I have for Tiffany’s story for real… WOW. Watch.

Hasan Minhaj Speaks On America’s Fear Of Muslims, Freedom Of Speech, Bill Maher And More (Video)

Aw damn. Almost forgot about President Trump’s links to pro wrestling. Hasan Minhaj talks a bit about The Donald (not much left to say after that White House roast he did), his refusal to use the N-word (even though he’s been called a ‘sand N-word’) and more.

Gotta say, Minhaj has got a lot on the ball to be just 31 years of age. Great interview.

Gal Gadot Wants To Know What Jimmy Kimmel Thinks Of Her Breasts (Video)

Kind of a flashback before the movie hit the theaters.

(Well, actually, that’s exactly what this is.)

Gal Gadot, point blank, asks Jimmy Kimmel about her breasts (wow) – something comic book fans have had a big reaction to (because… they’re breasteses)! She talks about her name, recalls the first time she tried on her Wonder Woman costume and more in this clip.

Why Drake And The-Dream “Shut It Down” As A Team After 2010 (Video)


Ha! Read that title and in for the dramaaaaa, huh? Nope. No real drama. Just grown men. Artists who collab’d for a killer cut; whose time was up. Each ‘reaching out’ in their own ways, their ways just didn’t jibe. And thus, no follow-up collaboration. It happens. Dr. Dre and Rakim, R. Kelly and Jay Z… things run their course; some courses shorter than others.

In 2010, The-Dream collaborated with Drake on “Shut It Down” from his album ‘Thank Me Later.’ In this excerpt of the first installment of Genius Level, Terius “The-Dream” Nash explains why the two haven’t worked together since.

Ishawna Speaks On Her Career, “Equal Rights” And More (Video)

Fair warning: You are going to fall for Ishawna’s voice almost as fast as her fineness. Interesting talk about her being where from where so many other Dancehall greats are from, her coming up and her uniqueness in the genre. Of course, Sway and Ishawna had to get into all the dirty and the ‘dutty’ in her hit “Equal Rights” (hot). All kinds of great convo. Watch!

(Oh, Ishawna! The one Jah Prince interviewed back in the day. She mighty fine and stayed on the grind. That’s maaahd!

Ashley Graham Tells Us “What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like” (Video)

Right from the start, I gotta ask: She’s shot nude??? A LOT??? Where the footage at, Ashley? Please! After the interview? Okay…

Ashley Graham came by Sway in the Morning to talk about her new book, “A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like” and opens up about growing up curvy, drugs and accepting her body.
Sway’s Universe

Yes, Ashley’s life has been a wild ride, rife with challenges and complexity. Several revelations and messages in here. Definitely worth clicking play, so y’all do that… while I go looking for them nudes.

Marshawn Lynch Talks To The Press, About His Comeback, In The Most ‘BeastMode’ Way (Video)

If you saw this, you immediately said or thought: “Okay, BeastMode. Gotcha.” And really understood what he was saying (well enough to ‘translate’ for anyone who did not ‘get it’ right away). Stuff like this is why the press always presses Marshawn Lynch to say something…ANYTHING.

Food: South L.A.’s African-American Taco Movement (Video)

Okay, you know Memphis for the barbecue and Philly for the cheesesteak… Basically, there are a lot of cities with food that reps. Check out a new food movement: South Los Angeles’ African American Tacos. Just a taste of Food Grails, a new First We Feast travel series.

Welcome to Food Grails, a new First We Feast travel series hosted by Miss Info. As a music journalist, she’s travelled the world and seen the power of artists who rep for their hometown sound. Now, she wants to discover how foods define a city’s flavor—from Atlanta’s lemon-pepper wings, to NYC’s beef patties. These are America’s food grails.
First We Feast

Learned some math: Profit from slanging tacos > profit from selling weed (wow, plus weed heads probably come through with ‘the munchies’ yo). Serious business here. Watch.

Kevin Hart Speaks On His Life, His Book, His Inspirations And More (Video)

Fellas, if you are ‘blessed’ below you are blessed for sho’ no matter how bad your life might go. Just paraphrasing some of the hilarious, but real, talk that this clip starts with. And then we quickly move to Kevin’s dad getting hit with an axe (wait, WHAT??!)… and it keeps getting realer, still real funny, while slipping in some real motivation & inspiration.

Kevin Hart is Brutally Honest in His New Book ‘I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons’ + Learning from Legends in the Industry & Speaks on New Partnership With Lionsgate.

Lots to unpack in the above interview. Good stuff.

Karyn Parsons Talks A Bit About Her Sweet Blackberry Foundation, Being Close To ‘The Fresh Prince’ & Cast And Her Life Since Being ‘Hilary Banks’ (Video)

Maaaan, Karyn Parsons was and IS that kind of fine that makes you wanna cuss out loud and call a friend over to celebrate her hotness with you. But you don’t cuss, you don’t call out… You stay put and stare, engaged, not even sure how you’d react if she gave you convo; let alone “a shot.” Yes, gentlemen and ladies, you would so wanna ‘cuff’ Karyn. Even now that cuffing season is over. Even more so after you watch this interview.

You’ll remember today’s guest from her role as Hilary Banks from the popular NBC sitcom, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Today, actress and writer Karyn Parsons is the founder and president of Sweet Blackberry, a foundation that aims to teach children stories of African American achievement. Parsons stopped by ‘Sway in the Morning’ to tell us all about her Sweet Blackberry initiative, being a mom, and her acting career.
Sway’s Universe

Oh, sooo Karyn is already married with children and making moves to benefit all our children. Wow, bittersweet. Know what though: She is so wonderful and worthwhile, you gotta still wish her well. Great interview. Worth the watch!

Do You Know Mindfulness Coach George Mumford? Michael Jordan And Kobe Bryant Do (Video)

The best way to score is not to try to score… You form an intention and then you have to allow it to happen.
George Mumford

Not too far a stretch for two players coached by Phil Jackson to be into meditation. Jackson was known as ‘The Zen Master’ of course. However, this Daily VICE video is going to adjust the spotlight so it shines on the guy that really helped Air and The Heir Apparent to get their minds right, meditation guru George Mumford.

Conan’s Wonder Woman Workout With Gal Gadot Leaves Him Feeling A Little Less Manly (Video)

Hahaaa! Conan will leverage his intense Girl Scout training and weak-looking legs in attempting to to get as fit as Gal Gadot did to deliver in her “Wonder Woman” role. Gal trained for six months. Conan will try to get on Gal’s level in 35 minutes.

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.
GLC

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…
