Amanda Seales After ‘Floetry’… Finding Her Lane And Riding It (Video)

Hmm… don’t know why I never made the ‘hey, that’s Amanda Diva‘ realization until she said so in this interview. The ‘Tube tagline says she “Dishes On Floetry, Getting Fired Because Jay-Z, Her Hollywood Come-up & More”… Yeah, yeah, that part… but I tuned in because she was so cute to me on those anti-smoking campaign commercials, and I just wanted to know if the effect of my brain would come anywhere near matching her look’s effect on my eyes.

Check! I am in. Amanda is so HOT, and cool, at the same damn time.

Jon ‘Bones’ Jones Speaks On Defeating Daniel Cormier Again, Being The Champ Again And His Future (Video)

Great two-parter from mixed martial artist and champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones. Passing out respect to the likes of Anderson Silva and heated (understatement: Jones said he wanted to KILL him at one point) rival Daniel Cormier. Real talk about the reality of competing in MMA. Plus the meme game on Cormier is brutally disrespectful!

Called out Brock Lesnar, did you, Jon? Okay, make that happen. Wonder how that will play after this upcoming Mayweather vs. McGregor event.

Keep going after the jump (Part 2).

Sean Price’s Wife Bernadette & Dru Ha Talk About Sean P. And “Imperius Rex” (Video)

Who doesn’t love how Boot Camp and Bernadette are keeping Sean P. alive through the music and shows nowadays? We see the on stage and hear the audio releases, but now we get a chance to hear from the Clik’s honcho Dru Ha and Mrs. Price. On point, off stage, and outside the booth.

Get the whole enchilada: How Sean and Bernadette met, how the contributions to “Imperius Rex” fell into place so wonderfully and more. Too much to even preview. Plus why ruin the watch. I will tell you that you want to know how Jay-Z, Eminem and others are tied into all this.

(Remembering the Prices’ daughter’s name… Shaun Price… Plus Bernadette said Sean ‘guided her’ from above on this project. Dammit. There go the tears again!)

Lil Duval Says He Is 40, Is Not Politically Correct, And Is Ready To Toss Shots At Sidechicks (Video)

Still single… Nah, Lil Duval is just going in and out of blessings. Maybe he can get ‘blessed’ by some Charlotte Sidechicks in this. Hahaaa!

Oh, wait. This is the show that got Duval in all that hot water with his transgender commentary. Alright, shutting it down. Watch and make your own judgments.

Issa Rae Shares Her Excitement About Season 2 Of “Insecure” And Her Insights On ‘Hoery’ (Video)

I wanna spend some precious moments rubbing on Issa Rae’s beautiful skin.

Okay, it’s out there. Is that ‘awkward’ (and if so, does that boost the chances of making that happen)? I’m asking. The answer won’t change my desire to do so though.

Soooo, this is Issa back on the radio with the pre-Season 2 promo for her “Insecure” series on HBO. Well worth catching up on if you have not done so already (only two episodes down this season). Also, hear her addressing Regina Hall’s implication of f*cking her way to the top, insights on women and their hoe phase, and she ‘big ups’ some of her co-stars. Lots in this interview.

Model Bernice Burgos Says Her Relationship With T.I. Was Mainly ‘Business, Never Personal’ (Video)

Bernice Burgos, the model (not ‘video vixen’ because she does NOT like that title) who has been placed at the epicenter of the TITiny breakup quake, presented her case on the radio waves the other day. Kinda makes sense, since she is being tried in the court of public opinion for being a homewrecker for the most part. Speaking of ‘tried’… she spoke on (among lots of other things) her social media war with Tiny during the interview; claiming her online clap-backs were more self-defense than sucker punches.

I was shocked at myself, I’m very disappointed in what I did. Social media sometimes will put you in a place that you have to fight with people that you don’t know. I was listening to social media, so many lies, so many you this, you that, like wait a minute…

Jada Pinkett Smith Speaks On “Girl’s Trip,” Relationships, Tupac, And Diversity In Hollywood (Video)

Jada Pinkett Smith’s book could be lit… VERY! Details on her movie “Girl’s Trip,” her relationship with Tupac Shakur, her drug dealing days… yep! She talks about it some in this interview, but is careful not to tell all.

Meek Mill Speaks About Being In The Middle Of Several Beefs, Making Amends And Moving On To Being Grown (Video)

Alright. I’ll fess up: I barely listen to Meek Mill’s music. Got sucked into the non-rap related beefs & bullsh!t he was in and wasn’t even really a fan of any of that. But this interview… He sounds like a man who has been through some things, learned something from it, and will likely go through a little less of them. He mentions being 30 years of age, but I can tell you: The passage of years has nothing to do with attaining the wisdom they should give you. How to focus ‘thug’ energy on standing firm in the face of adversity (esp. that which you brought on yourself). Having realized that sometimes it is best to stay low instead of high posting all the damn time. Wisdom!

Of course, Meek is still about with the sh!ts. He starts the interview with some of that. But there’s less of it around to smell up the joint. Good interview!

Angela Rye ‘Hates’ Charlamagne Tha God Most Of The Time, But Credits Him For Her New Podcast (Video)

Angela Rye (1) is VERY HOT, been sleeping on her cuteness and her voice; (2) is VERY WOKE, activism is in her DNA; and (3) is VERY much wishing Omarosa WOULD swing on her!

Yuuuup. All that in just the first 10 minutes of the interview. So, now, while I go find her podcast (On One With A. Rye) and subscribe, you should watch this interview. Awesome stuff!

LOL! Somebody let Bronson the bucking bull loose in the Funk Flex fine china shop, and dude cracked and stomped on all the best dishes. Can’t tell you what this is – all this – but you gotta see it. Dope!

(Flex didn’t know WTF was happening, but he was hanging on for the ride. Haahahaaa! Lights, camera, Action Bronson!)

Kendrick Lamar Lists His All Time Top Five (Video)

Jay Z, Eminem, 2Pac, Biggie, and Snoop Dogg. Mighty powerful list for a guy that is NOT big on such lists. And yes, he was aware that Nas was not on his list… just missed the cut.

Kendrick Lamar runs down his list of his top 5 all time favorite rappers, living or dead.
– Power 106 Los Angeles

Great clip! See a much longer interview after the jump where K. Dot talks about his latest album (“DAMN.”), his insatiable hunger for Hip-Hop, the passing of Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) and more.

The one and only, Michael Blackson is back at it! The comedian recently stopped by Sway In The Morning where he stopped to chop it up about what he has been up to these days.

La La Anthony Speaks On Parenting & Life Apart From Carmelo, Her Career And More (Video)

Have you SEEN La La looking so so DELICIOUS on “Power” on Starz? Have MERCY, she is so fine! Plus, an actually good actor.

LaLa breaks it down with ‘Ebro In The Morning’ on how she feels about Phil Jackson being fired, where her and Melo stand right now, and how she got her first big break.
– Hot 97

Great interview. Real talk. Gotta imagine that her radio background helps her communicate all this so well, too.

Around the 10-minute mark – even the list of friends is HOT, and ‘bye Phil-lecia’ hahaaa!

(Confirmed: La and the homie 4-IZE did ‘live together’ back in the day, just like he rapped on “How’d That Work Out?” She said it in here! Salute to the homie.)

Westside Gunn Speaks On Coming Up In Buffalo, How It Affects His Music-Making, His Signing With Shady Records And More (Video)

Westside Gunn ain’t bragging when he starts off dropping names like Raekwon, The LOX, Prodigy (RIP) and the like that he has rocked with… because that sh!t is true!

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 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.

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.
