Michael Rapaport Was There When Pac And Snoop Met (Video)

Yoooo! The Stormy Fronts commentary ruled (funny and fine af)! Rapaport was cool (but excited to be there) as a fan blowing the smoke cloud away from Snoop… but the ‘weather’ report though. Yessssirrrr! Oh okay, the ‘news’ was good, too.

Today on GGN, the one and only Michael Rapaport stops by and describes bearing witness to the first time Snoop and Pac met. All this and more on this week’s GGN… u-bitch-u!!! Make sure you check out the “I Am Rapaport Podcast” on iTunes, or at IAmRapaport.com for more of this guy’s lunacy!

Martellus Bennett Talks Trap And Alt-Rap With Uncle Snoop On GGN (Video)

Bet you didn’t know Martellus Bennett used to be in an alternative rap group and that he is still dropping mixtapes on y’all today! Even has a dog; a poodle though, not a pit (alternative, remember). Awesome interview! Makes me want to drop in on a Whole Foods and ball out just ’cause cuz. Hahaa!

(Great insights in here, too. It’s not all about the funniness with Bennett. Even talked about needing public school reform and Black girls coding (which we’ve been on). Respect!)

Politics/Comedy: Seth Meyers Says, “Hey, Hillary Clinton, Stop Blaming Bernie Sanders” (Video)

Okay, I will admit to not watching a whole lot of Late Night With Seth Meyers. No reason. No hate. Always thought dude was funny. Plus, there’s the YouTube… where apparently the system knows I would like some stuff he says and suggests his clips to me.

Know what? YouTube is RIGHT! This “Hey!” clip is EPIC!

I did not even know Senator Clinton was throwing the shade at Senator Sanders in her book like that. And don’t worry, I got a clip with Bernie Sanders giving a rebuttal, with a pivot, to focus us on the REAL issues. No matter what, we need to keep our eyes on the prize(s) in #FeelTheBern mode after the jump.

But wait! Watch the hilariousness (and insight) above from Meyers.

(Full disclosure: I have not read Hillary Clinton’s book. Probably good though.)

Trina Talks About ‘Catty’ Women, A New Album With Trick Daddy, And Starring On ‘Love & Hip Hop: Miami’ (Video)

Hmm… Gotta love Trina for her lasting, lovely looks. Still beautiful after all these years. Bringing sexiness to Hip-Hop circles for certain.

But you know, many would say the same about Amber Rose. So, okay, The Drink Champs can now boast that BOTH have been on the show. And both (you’ll see) made great guests. Very engaging convo as the libations flow.

Joe, Rory, Mal and Parks talk about the ranks of the best rappers of all-time. And dude is gonna start with some potential sideways talk about Eminem… with Slaughterhouse Joe sitting right there?? Ohhh kaaay, let’s see how the rest of this convo goes.

A good amount of time spent on Cam’s (Cam’ron) placement in the rankings. Hmmm… Plus, interesting comments on the NY-South-everywhere else thing by Budden. Actually, a little bite to the words.

Remember: We’re out here in the ATL, Joe.

Sneaker Shopping With Meek Mill (Video)

Meek Mill’s don’t-call-it-a-comeback is coming along just fine. Through the beef with Drizzy, dealing with the Remy-vs-Nicki fallout… Philly’s son stood tall on his own two feet through it all. Never fake. Real, from head to toe. Right down to his shoes. Speaking of which…

Meek Mill goes Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma at Stadium Goods, and talks about looking up to Allen Iverson and moving on past his Puma deal.

Comedy: All Def Digital Digs Into Some Old School School Lunch Treats (Video)

I am convinced there is nothing that the SquADD cannot make hilarious. Plus, in this clip, there is a level of passion about canned pasta & sauce I have never witnessed. Some love, some hate, all funny. Had me weak: the jokes AND the girls (hella sexy plus funny, too)!

Comedians reminisce over Chef Boyardee, Fruit by the Foot, Hi-C and Pop Rocks. #SchoolLunch

Neil deGrasse Tyson With Some “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry” And A Word For Climate Science Deniers (Video)

Great talk. Plus: Neil deGrasse Tyson with the booooom statement of, like, the decade or something! To all the climate change deniers: How was it that we made all kinds of plans, and reacted with all kinds and fervor and enthusiasm, to the Eclipse [Across America] – a phenomenon predicted by science – but NOT even flinch or flitter at the very real, very scientifically-founded warnings of pending planet-wide doom due to climate change (global warming, whatever you wanna call it)? Is it because beach chairs will become useless for the beachfront after the ocean level rises? Maybe because you’ll need good galoshes to go anywhere downtown in NYC? C’mon son!

Neil deGrasse Tyson weighs in on why climate change is subject to political debate and examines the privilege of wondering about space in “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.”
– Comedy Central

Okay, they are probably not reading this post or watching The Daily Show on Comedy Central… So if you know a denier, please share this.

(Or share with the like-minded. I don’t mind having an ‘amen corner’ on this.)

This 2 Chainz Interview Starts With Some Confessions And Ends With An Apology (Video)

2 Chainz came to promote an album, let us know that “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” too, and to get Charlemagne Tha God back for ‘setting him up’ (gotta watch to the end for that one). He wasn’t trying to get caught up in talking about the Nicki Minaj vs. Remy Ma beef from back earlier in the year or that bag that Ludacris still owes him… Wait what? Oh, he was here to talk about that, too. Hahaa!

Black Men Trace Their Roots… Of Their Native American Heritage (Video)

You could get in a lot of trouble if you were caught ‘out of place’ or ‘talking out of turn’… Sound familiar, like familia? It should, especially for these gentlemen who have proven that they have ‘Indian in their blood’ (as my elders used to say). But this video is more about similarities in Native American and African American heritages. This is about linkages, bonds, relationships between our peoples. Set aside about a half-hour and get this knowledge!

On the next Another View, a history lesson on the Cheroenhaka-Nottoway Indian Tribe of Southampton County, Virginia – and how a man named Walter Ashby Plecker forever changed the relationship between Native Americans and African Americans in this part of Virginia.

Rhythm Roulette With DJ Dahi (Video)

You know DJ Dahi (if not, study up via this link to all our posts on him here). Whether you did before now or not, prepare to be impressed (again) with his beatwork; specifically, the work he put in using his blind 3 picks on this episdoe of Rhythm Roulette.

Wait. He’s is picking from a curated stack for this Serato Edition, just like DJ Jazzy Jeff did. Is this the thing now? Oh wait, there’s another episode he did before this, where Dahi blind-picked, sampled, clipped and mixed per the established rules? Came up with THREE beats??? Nice!

(See that after the jump.)

Netflix Teases Marvel’s “The Punisher” Series (Coming Late 2017) [Trailer]

Not sure if you got your binge on with all “The Defenders” episodes yet, but apparently Netflix is not playing with y’all on the Marvel Universe front. Already dropped that new trailer for “The Punisher” – Marvel’s deadly antihero series set to release later this year. And for those who know, that sledgehammer wouldn’t just be for show).

According to ScreenRant, the episode titles will be 3 AM, Two Dead Men, Kandahar, Resupply, Gunner, The Judas Goat, Crosshairs, Cold Steel, Front Toward Enemy, Virtue of the Viscous, Danger Close, Home and Momento Mori.

Of course, these are TEASERS, so don’t expect all the red meat from what you see. Just enough to pique your interest… But recognize, some very bad people’s lives are gonna end very badly… on Netflix this year.

Rhythm Roulette With DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Okay. Up front, I gotta admit that I yelled and pointed at the screen, “CHEATER!” While DJ Jazzy Jeff did pick his three plates blindfolded, his selection was curated. The picks were from a COLLECTION (e.g. no chance of pulling any wack or even wacky records). Booooo!

Then I fell back. Rhythm Roulette is not so much a ‘competition’ that someone can cheat and win. When someone like The Magnificient DJ Jazzy Jeff blesses with records like this… Truth is, we ALL win!

Donshea Hopkins Speaks On Life Before, During, And After ‘Power’ (Video)

Hope you’ve caught up on your Showtime viewing by now. In particular, I hope you already know what happened on this past Sunday’s episode of “Power.”

****SPOILER ALERT***

Well, the ‘Big Rich Town’ is a very sad place. The violent storm has finally taken someone that EVERYONE will miss: Ghost’s beautiful baby girl is gone. Reina (played by Donshea Hopkins) has fallen. And the “Power” watchers will tune in next week for two reasons… (1) to see what that damnable brother of hers, Tariq, is gonna do and (2) to see what Ghost & Tommy are gonna do (holyyyyy sh!t)!

But don’t cry too, too much for Reina… and you should only shed tears of joy for Donshea. She has been acting practically since right after she could walk. And she has a couple of roles she might revisit (like the series that put Netflix on the map, “Orange Is The New Black”). Click play and tune into Donshea’s radio interview embedded above for the skinny on all that and more!

AMC Screens “The Walking Dead” Season 8 Teaser At SDCC (Trailer)

Aw HELLLLLLL naw! That could NOT be all a dream. I will go on record saying how lame that would be. So, no, the nightmare world king of AMC Originals, “The Walking Dead,” was all real. I declare it!

(Okay, as real as a zombie series can get on TV. And after watching the Comic Con trailer above, you will see just how real sh!t can get!)
