In this sit-down, Pharrell also speaks on who “Happy” was originally for… goes into his love for A Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, living in Virginia, and much more!

Even segueing into that early on got deep.

Don’t trust the polls…Millennials don’t answer house phones, and there’s 43 million Americans.

Politics: Greg Palast Speaks On How Voter Suppression Sealed Donald Trump’s Victory (Video)

Wowww… Cross Checking. Damn, they stay scheming, right? Actually, voter suppression is only part of the problem with getting truly fair and open elections. A good chunk of the problem is STORY suppression! Why is this only being talked about on outlets like DemocracyNow and podcasters like Margaret Prescod? Wonder if even they would know to cover such without investigative reporter Greg Palast exposing these political underbelly scum tactics.

If you’re Black, you’re 900% more likely to have your vote disqualified than if you’re White.
Greg Palast

A must watch. The 15 minutes goes by fast. Feel free to watch twice to really get it.

Trevor Noah Talks Tomi Lahren, Donald Trump, Racism In America & More (Video)

I have observed the online musings of many who think Charlamagne Tha God & Trevor Noah made the stupid Donkey (e.g. ‘dumb azz’) move when they gave shine to unapologetic Conservative mouthpiece Tomi Lahren recently. Noah even brought her on ‘The Daily Show’ as a guest. Which is where I think we saw evidence of effort in trying to bridge gaps, perhaps; or at least bold media strategy.

Hear me out.

Everybody who has or might follow Trevor Noah knows who he is, shares most of his views, etc. Same can be assumed of Tomi Lahren’s fanbase. Is it such a bad gamble to think that those followers of Tomi who just ‘know’ they hate that Trevor Noah (say it with a drawl in your head, I can give you permission since I speak drawl y’all)… and his lefty ‘Daily’ comrades… and all the dummies who tune in whenever he spews his nonsense… Okay, you get it… But might those Tomi followers tune in at least long enough to ogle Tomi, amen what she says, and listen to see what there is about Trevor to hate? Maybe a scant few might see that, Liberal as he is, he was at least cordial, actively engaged, and respectful.

Donald Trump is President Elect folks. That’s reality for America The World. We’ve gotta start somewhere. Listening, and REALLY trying to understand, to the other side express WHY… just as good a place as any.

See Trevor’s talk on paths to understanding, his book, and more during his Breakfast Club interview.

Chelsea Handler Speaks On Men, Masturbation And More (Video)

The word for this episode is CRAZY! For just a second, it looked like (1) Envy was really a Latino in denial and (2) Charlemagne was gonna ‘drop trou’ as Chelsea commanded. I mean, she did say she was into many cultures…and many penes (like that 100 Pene challenge we posted hereChels would smash that)!

Chelsea Handler stopped by the studio to “shoot the sh!t” with the Breakfast Club. After refusing to answer DJ Envy’s questions about her Netflix show, Chelsea talked about some slightly raunchier subjects. The comedian discussed her opinions on masturbation and blow jobs, as well as why she doesn’t mind one night stands. Check out the interview.

Chelsea Handler is hella funny on this, and there is nowhere she won’t go. Wow! Watch.

StarTalk: Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson Sits Down With GZA (Of Wu-Tang Clan)

I’m continually impressed that much of the GZA content we share on here places just as much a premium on high intellect and science as it does on skillz. Watch world-renown new school science guy Neil deGrasse Tyson talk with GZA; really getting into real-life love of science, being inspired by it, and how it can (and should) inspire others.

Yvonne Orji (Molly On HBO’s “Insecure”) Is Keeping It Locked Until She Gets That Rock! [Video]

That Issa Rae “Insecure” show on HBO is a hit. Hahaha! How many times did they play with that ‘orgy’ vs. ‘Orji‘ pronunciation at the beginning? And WOW do they go right at ‘Molly’ right from the start on the Breakfast Club!

Yvonne Orji, the breakout star of HBO’s new show Insecure, stopped by the studio on Friday to talk with The Breakfast Club. Yvonne talked about playing a sexually free character named Molly on the show while being a 32-year-old virgin in real life. Yvonne also talked about her Nigerian roots, strong faith, and her first big break.

Great interview. Yvonne is hilarious and cool. So much so, this interview made me binge and catch up On Demand this past weekend. Yeah. That good. Watch and enjoy.

(Yvonne, fine guyull, I will stab you… BWAAAHAHAAAA!!)

Joe Budden & Cyn Santana Sitting In… With Angie Martinez (Video)

Ahhh, love. Sweet love. With just enough crazy to make for good radio. There’s a grownness about Joe & Cyn’s convo (esp. Joe’s) when they get to the meat of it. You know how a dude thinks he can pull a girl that’s into girls… Well, Budden’s done it. Don’t hate.

He’s my man now…
Cyn Santana

Still very light-hearted talk overall. I liked watching it. I think you might, too. Peep.

Common Speaks On His New Album, Being Cool With His Exes, The Presidential Election and More (Video)

Common lives at a level of cool to which we should all aspire: Supreme rhyme skills, ladies on his arm and in his past with looks that kill (in or out of heels), showing love & respect to all and getting it back… and now the coolest thing… his new album and promo push timed in such a way to help his people and country. “Black America Again” is conscious music with that good head nod appeal. His promotional interviews with have your head nodding in approval, too.

Watch him above talking about his longevity and being re-energized by what’s going on in the rap game now, being cool with his exes (which include Erykah Badu & Serena Williams…WOW), President Obama and his legacy and so much more.

Joel Ortiz, Nitty Scott And Bodega Bamz Speak On How They Formed ‘No Panty’ And More (Video)

Wow. Sway looks at the this No Panty move through a spitter’s lens; not even considering that Joel Ortiz, Nitty Scott & Bodega Bamz are all Latino spitters! Check out the Sway In The Morning interview of new super-group No Panty. Get deeper in depth with all that.

When Salaam Remi calls, you answer. First reaching out to Joel Ortiz about his idea to put together some Latin SPITTERS, it was a no-brainer to bring Bodega Bamz and Nitty Scott in that conversation. Introducing: NO PANTY. A new group spitting BARS while still conserving the Latin culture. Watch above and grab their new project “Westside Highway Story.”

Political Pundit Alex Jones Interviews Danny Williams, Who Says He Is Bill Clinton’s Biological Son (Video)

When Bill Clinton was Arkansas’ Governor, Danny Williams recalls being a kid taken to the Gubernatorial Mansion, then dragged away abruptly by his mother (Bobbie Ann Williams); an encounter that parabolizes the Clintons’ supposed denial of then-Governor Clinton’s extramarital son… That is what the Williams story being played on this the Alex Jones Show clip above purports. Williams goes further to say that Hillary Clinton pretty much banished him from seeing his biological father.

Now, we cannot know the truth with 100% certainty, unless folks are ready to take that trip and see Maury (ha!). But consider the source, as you consider the above vid from all angles. Why put this out? Who is served? It certainly serves Jones’ need for eyeballs on his channel. And Williams, if what he claims is true, could be seeking a public remedy for a grievance that would never have likely been resolved privately. We already know President Bill Clinton’s past has extramarital activity in it. Hmmm…

Oh, wait… Isn’t Bill’s wife Hillary the presumptive favorite in a Presidential election? Would Jones, Republican opponent Donald Trump, and/or those aligned with either/both of them, like to muddy the waters on the Democratic candidate’s side given Trump’s poll plummet?

Who’s to say? One might say this, though… freeze-framing Williams and looking at a young Governor Clinton… there could be some resemblance. Interesting.

But what do YOU think? That is all that really matters; now, and on into November.

(And, “It is really not my concern,” is an acceptable answer. Just saying.)

Let’s keep it a buck. If Fat Joe and Remy Ma ain’t up there screaming, “Big Pun”…ain’t nobody else giving a F*CK!
Fat Joe

Damn. Might have to file this Power 99 interview with Don Joey under ‘keeping it real.’ Although… you do now have that lie spotting skill set we just posted on here. Test that. Did Fat Joe do Pun’s wife wrong? Watch and decide for yourself as he speaks on that, how he struggled and to get where he is (now happily independent), how he got into DEEP trouble with the IRS (and is getting out) and more.

(Deeeeem! Have you seen Joe’s wifey Lorena though? Hit the jump. Respect!)
