From The Writer/Director Of “Moonlight,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” Comes To Theaters This Fall (Trailer)

Oh maaann, this looks like a heartwrenching, emotional rollercoaster type drama… one well worth watching when it hits theaters. Starting to feel like Black movies (films with Black people in front of and behind the camera) are hitting a good flow. No need to ask us to ‘support’ or ‘give it a chance’ when they come out nowadays because they are just great stories. Hands down.

Trust love all the way.
IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK. In theaters Fall 2018.
– Annapurna Pictures

And this trailer is teasing the story told in James Baldwin’s novel, “If Beale Street Could Talk.” A story of Black love, struggle, and trying to get and keep a young family together in racially charged Harlem in the 1970s. Helmed by Barry Jenkins, doing his first film since “Moonlight.”

Kanye West Tears Up On Live Radio. Takes A Moment… (Video)

You know. There were comments on the ‘Tube to bear this out… maybe Yeezy needs to break from all this. For just a while at least. It’s one thing to be a true ‘original thinker’ or societal outsider or enigma. But when that ‘being yourself’ breaks you down like this, whether we judge it to be ‘real enough’ or not #BreakTime

(That “It takes courage to change hearts” line in this trailer… wow!)

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans.

Angie Martinez Speaks On And Shares Her Lost Interview With 2Pac

Hmm. last time the Interwebs were abuzz with talk of 2Pac and Hot 97 in the same breath was when it was ‘the world’ vs. Funk Flex ranting about the way Pac talked & moved while he was here. Folks pretty much took the view, “Flex, it’s been decades. Let it die.”

But time and again, we see that 2Pac and all things related come up and come back to life (so to speak).

Watch Joe Budden ‘Pull Up’ On T-Pain (Episode 7) [Video]

Okay, so Joe Budden has become known for creating the content and moments online, for being at the center of things, that make viewers go ‘wooooow’ right? Think about him almost getting into a three-on-1 (plus their bodyguard) fracas for smooth walking off mid-interview on Migos (e.g. whosaidIgotleftoffBadandBougie… doitlookitlikeIgotleftoffBadandBougie). But this is not that. His ‘Pull Up’ series, according to Joe himself, is all about sitting down ONLY with folks HE gives a f**k about. This T-Pain episode, case in point, looks like a conversation that is the result of ‘pulling up’ on a longtime homie to catch up & give him a chance to get deeper in depth about things like moves he’s made (changing the game with autotune, putting out the ultimate “Boo’d Up” remix) and moves he’s about to make (rumors of dope music in his clip he is about to let off).

Good stuff. Watch!

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…

BeingSean: Friday Night Races And A Happy Father’s Day Weekend

Thank you, Andrea and Syd, for an AWESOME WEEKEND!!! I loved every minute of it. AND Happy Fathers Day guys!!!!!
– BeingSean.com

The realest talk. Give Dad what he really wants on Father’s Day, and he’ll be head-over-heels. Not because it’s required (real Dads don’t need a ‘day’ to recognize that), but just because… and out of real love. Awesome piece from the homie Sean. Check it out.

Father’s Day weekend was a little different for me this year in that Syd is spending the entire summer with her mom versus one month. See I’m used to Syd being at the house for most of the summer and this year I had to do the “I’m the summer dad” pickup for the weekend. It was… weird. 

Andrea and Syd both asked me what I wanted to do well in advance but as most dads know, we don’t need a special day to tell us we are great dads. Syd suggested we go to the Friday night drag races which is something we both enjoy doing. Andrea has never been so this was a first for her. Side note… (more)
