Amanda Seales

Not low key with my crush on Amanda Diva Seales for real. So lovely. A frequent guest of The Breakfast Club, the crew has her up for another sit-down. Always great talk when she comes through…

Marlon Wayans Draws On His Life For The Truth, The ‘Funny’ And Speaks On His Realness In Family Relationships (Video)

The dude behind Envy was already laughing right at the start of this clip. Buckle up for funny! Without fail, I always think back to when Keenan, Damon, and Shawn Wayans were on BET’s Teen Summit back, back in the day, saying y’all think we are funny… You haven’t seen funny… just amping how crazy Marlon (a bit too young for TV at the time) is. And they were right. He’s matured since, and added some ‘tone’ to his funniness, but still hilarious…

Darius McCrary Speaks On Making Music Forever And Pitches A Movie To The Breakfast Club (Video)

It is DEFINITELY hard to not call dude Eddie Winslow… but I will show proper respect to the brother. And I have low-key wondered if he would ever step back out into the public after going through his Karrine Steffans drama (Google it, not going back through it here). Welp, here he go. No need to wonder anymore.

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Daniel Caesar (Video)

Maaan! Good soulful music and performance to get you going, keep you going, or enjoy the day’s end when you’ve been going all day. Daniel Caesar and the band got you on NPR with the Tiny Desk Concert on this ep.

Daniel Caesar and his band had a clear vision for their Tiny Desk performance. While already confined to a small space, they opted to congregate at the piano, where producer and music director Matthew Burnett sat to create what feels like a fly-on-the-wall moment. We’re presented a purity that’s nearly impossible to capture on an album.

Corey Holcomb Speaks On How Hard It Was To See Kevin Hart Go Through Marital Issues And How Easy It Is To Cheat (Video)

Always great to catch Corey Holcomb on-air with interviews like this. For some reason, I had dismissed this one until now because I thought it was a Breakfast Club ‘throwback’ from way back. Still fresh though. And Corey, though toned down a touch, is still giving Yee and Envy that raw commentary.

I don’t think they ‘got it’ at the end when Corey was ‘pulling their leg’ a bit at the end. Still a great watch though. But why did he have to go in on President Obama like that though… because Corey, man. That part.
