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.

Conway x Benny x Westside Gunn | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #060 (Video)

Everybody can’t come up here… Flex speaks truth regarding most of his recent featured Freestyles. This one especially. To hammer home the point, VERY few can come through like Conway, Benny, and Westside Gunn did in this ep.

The whole entire came through with them, didn’t they? Haa!

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.

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.
Sway’s Universe

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!

Kool G Rap Speaks On What Motivates Him, The State Of Hip-Hop And More (Video)

Sway laid it on thick in the intro, but deservedly so. Kool G Rap is a Hip-Hop legend and OG. Above, watch Sway, Heather B, and Tracy G chat up G Rap about what brought him back to the rap game, how he sees the game today, how beef gets addressed then vs. now, ghost writers and more.

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.

Nick Grant – “Funky Enough Freestyle” (Video)

SNAPPIN’!!

South Carolina stand up! Nick Grant spit fire for LA Leakers in this clip. This freestyle damn sure is “Funky Enough” (flowing over The D.O.C. classic beat)!

(YOOOOO! Dude said he’s going NUTS… George Carver n*gga!)

‘5 Minutes Of Funk’ With DJ Diamond (Video)

DJ Diamond did the damn thang on this ep. of #5MinutesOfFunk though yo. Nothing not to love about it when Funkmaster Flex goes back to the elements. The emcees doing the Freestyles… and now, Turntable Tuesday.

Know that saying, “Time flies” right? Well, it is especially true when a DJ is having fun blacking out on the wheels… like how 5 Minutes becomes 12 Minutes Of Funk. Haaaa! Good stuff!

Roc Marciano Talks About His Latest Album, Making His Music And His Money And More (Video)

Roc Marci is in the building… and the only one of his UN comrades who kept it pushing in the music grind. But Roc keeps in touch with the homies regardless (good). Hear him talk about “Rosebudd’s Revenge” (the album), being his own boss, loving that West Coast living and more.

Jay Pharoah Speaks On Leaving SNL, Remembers Charlie Murphy And More (Video)

Jay Pharoah wants you to know that he is ‘not a yes n!gga’ folks. Hear, in the interview above, the risky career situations where he says ‘no’ to things, how he ended up leaving Saturday Night Live and more. Interesting how he affirmed that they (SNL) attempted to pigeonhole him as the Black impressionist; then he tossed that Chris Rock impression right in there within minutes (then a smidge of President Trump later).

(Did Jay say he got ‘White famous’ around the 8-minute mark though? Hahaa!)

Ludacris And Tyrese Speak On Recent Media Controversies, The Latest ‘Fast & Furious’ Movie And More (Video)

Ha! Pepsi AND Bill O’Reilly are both under fire, and they both dissed the sh!t out of Ludacris back in the day. Now Luda is doing pretty damn good… and they are NOT! Ohhhhh, success is the BEST revenge!

Tyrese & Ludacris keep it all the way 100 in The Breakfast Club studio, talk new music, “Fate of the Furious” & More.

And coming for Tyrese about weave, fake butts and such is not the best move. His rebuttal game is on point. Maybe don’t hate on a dude solely for expressing opinions and living life. He is not your boyfriend, nor is he feeding you or your fam.

(But they are gonna go all the way up to a 10th ‘Fast & Furious’ movie though? Whoa.)

Kxng Crooked – “Come Clean Freestyle” (Video)

While Joey Bada$$ spoke from the heart on Hip-Hop’s old guard holding back the new-new (here), let’s keep it true… Real Hip-Hop cann’t get much more to the core than this! KXNG Crooked doing damage on Jeru The Damaja’s classic instrumental. Barz!!

Joey Bada$$ Says New York Hip-Hop Is Stale And New York Radio Is Not Helping (Video)

Respect to Joey Bada$$. We listen to him on that mic because when he touches mics, he continually earns that respect. Take in what he is saying about the stagnation in Hip-Hop. What he is saying about how things must and do change, including Hip-Hop. Caution: It’s gonna sting a bit of you are a boom-bap-over-trap or new-stuff-is-not-real-rap proponent. There must be a righteous middle ground though. Joey calling old heads on holding the youth in the game back… saying that to ‘Old Man Ebro‘… that’s some live and direct sh!t. But as an early 20-something who’s pretty much a vet, we have to let him say it.

Maybe we should really try to give space on the established (read: old) channels for new artists out here.

Now, of course, there is much more to this interview. But that part packs a punch.

(Okay, Joey. Message received. But we reserved the right to trash trash music.)

DL Hughley Speaks On ESPN’s Sage Steele Firing, White Privilege, & Fox News Anchor Bill O’Reilly (Video)

Deeeeem! It’s cold out here for Sage Steele now that the ESPN door got slammed, esp. in the Hughley-verse.

More than that, in this short clip, DL went IN on the FoxNews x Bill O’Reilly situation in the right way… Hell, I remember having genuine HEAT for FoxNews’ ‘Papa Bear’ when he attacked Ludacris on his show (attempted character assassination); when Pepsi dumped Luda as a spokesperson (by the way, eff Pepsi for that.. I’m a Pepper)!

My rhymes ain’t rhymes. They’re life sentences.

wuuuuuuWHAAAT! Barz dammit! Watching Your Old Droog doing this freestyle on Showoff Radio… could have easily re-titled this ‘Why We Fux With Droog: The Video.’ Hell, we just might! Salute Statik Selekt! Wreck ws caught on Shade 45 that night fa’sho.

IF you got an emcee – a REAL emcee – in your midst, all it takes is a dope beat and an opportunity, and mic magic can happen. How about… that Miguel and J. Cole jawn “All I Want Is You”… aaaand Joey Badass?

Yeah. Abracadabra muthaf**kers!
