Robert Townsend Speaks On ‘Hollywood Shuffle’ & Being One Of The Architects Of Black Hollywood (Video)

Somebody was sitting next to me the other day, and she actually said, into her phone, “I didn’t even know that The Five Heartbeats was not a real group until yesterday.”

Turns out Envy & Charlamagne weren’t hip to it either. Um…WHAT????!! Haha!

GeeeeeYOTdam! Arsonal is a lyrical assassin… with a LOT of weapons and shots for WHOEVER want it! And he calls names in this no-let-up bar show he put on for Funk Flex.

Got so heated in there that Flex had to take the last couple of minutes to ‘de-escalate’ the situation. RAW!!!

Jae Millz | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #114 (Video)

Okay. I saw the ‘heat’ in the comments for K-ShiNe’s freestyle for Flex that we just posted… Apparently, Jae Millz took that L. But even whisper the battlecat’s name and he’s back at you. Heavy bar talk with a double side serving of ‘petty’ for every hater. Ha!

Michelle & Chad sitting in a tree… praying and meditating on God’s greatness and their future together… Yes, for real.

Michelle Williams & Chad Johnson On Saving Themselves For Marriage, Couples Therapy + Their New Show
– Breakfast Club Power 105.1 FM

Sure, they talk about ‘saving themselves’ for marriage, but they talk way more about us as a people needing to get comfortable with seeking out counseling – couples & individual. Great talk.

(Watch through to the end for the most biblical, lyrical, pimp-tastical line ever… “What did Moses do with his staff?” Haha!)

Charlamagne Tha God Speaks On Mental Health, Anxiety In Business & Relationships (Video)

Very conversational. Grounds for real talk, and a lot of ground gets covered as Gary Vee and C Tha God get to the real tea. Whether or not you follow them, they have a lot of things in life to juggle. How do they do it without going crazy (really)? Watch and see how they deal.

Tiffany Haddish Speaks On What She Wants In A Man, Her Love Of Cartoons, And Katt Williams (Video)

Interesting. Tiffany is a lot less silly in this interview than I’ve noticed in a long while, perhaps ever. Make no mistake, she is still fun in this, but in more a Will Smith funny-but-this-one-has-something-to-say way.

Tiffany Haddish passed through Ebro in the Morning to discuss a variety of topics including, what qualities a man needs to have to date her, why hosting SNL was so difficult, what really happened when Katt Williams spoke to her after dissing her publicly, and is she trying to bring an old classic back?
– Hot 97

Wow. That list for qualifications for her man though. Dudes (like me) will have to step CORRECT. Fair, but substantive. And Tiffany’s side of the Katt Williams drama… well worth watching this through to the end.

Styles P x Dave East | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #111 (Video)

Yea mon! The bredren SP and Dave E have been moving as a pack, promoting the album and doing interviews. But when they pull up on Flex, you KNOW they have to bless with RAW freestyles. And this was labeled “Part 1” on the ‘Tubes. Expect another ASAP!

Angela Rye Speaks On Why The Coming Midterm Elections Matter And Kanye Being Down With Trump (Video)

The mid-terms are coming up, and you may even have ‘early voting’ going on in your community right now. I’m not going to try to guilt you into anything, but you REALLY ought to vote this go ’round… the local representation is where it’s at. There are no ‘electoral college’ counts; your vote helps chose DIRECTLY – Congress, Governors, local offices, ordinances and amendments are all chosen by your vote.

See? If you did not vote in 2016 and you let President Trump happen… we’re not harping on that anymore. It’s done. And the insanity that the President and Senate just put on the U.S. Supreme Court… that was a ‘done deal’ back in 2016 when Trump won. Your action or lack thereof in 2016 affected 2018 politics which affected your LIFE; if the ‘right to choose’ for your body and yours & your children’s schooling means anything. Cavanaugh is the swing vote on those issues coming before the Supreme Court for the rest of his LIFE!

Okay, okay. I will stop and get down off my soapbox. Just VOTE DAMMIT!

Maybe you will listen to fine as wine and woke af activist Angela Rye tell you why.
