Keith Olbermann With A Way To Corner President Trump In The Oval Office: Let’s Go To The Tapes (Video)

Damn. Keith highlights a good point on this episode of ‘The Resistance.’ If the tape or tapes that can clear President Trump of former FBI Director James Comey exist, investigators should demand them. And they better prove Trump’s innocence of EVERY allegation; because if he is proven guilty of even one Comey accusation in the recordings… he’s OUT of the White House.

By casually raising the idea he’s got tapes, Donald Trump has found new trouble.
– GQ

Plus, by now, Trump cannot simply claim the tweet about the tapes was in ‘error’ nor can he deny their existence. Well, he can. Because, you know, The Donald. But he should not be allowed to do that.

Eminem Speaks On Dr. Dre x Jimmy Iovine As ‘The Defiant Ones’ (Trailer)

Getting closer to the July 9th release of this one on HBO. You saw Em on “The Defiant Ones” trailer, so you’d expect him to figure prominently in the film; but what he has to say (here) might surprise you (dope line about the ‘levitator’ and the ‘innovator’). Watch him and others weigh in in poignant, as well as playful snips in the above teaser trailer.

And hey look… some cool content on the project’s Instagram (here).

Snoop Dogg – “Trash Bags” (Live Performance)

These guys know how to mix fun and serious business. Jimmy Kimmel and Snoop Dogg doing the damn thing on the tube again; not ‘roasting’ on Comedy Central, rather with Snoop performing “Trash Bags” on Jimmel Kimmel Live.

And the re-THICK-ulous dancing girls on stage made it an extra ‘special’ night on stage. But for something really special, hit the jump (more footage of Snoop’s time with Kimmel).

Watch Joe Budden ‘Rate The Bars’ (Video)

This is stupid trash… and I’m sorry…
Joe Budden

Bwaaaahahaaaa! I kinda expected frankness and shots from Jumpoff Joe. And he certainly delivers. What makes it funny, extra funny, is that he remains super-mellow while giving out the ratings.

Awesome that Budden knows half the emcees by their bars, too.

Philadelphia 76’er Joel Embiid Makes A Play For Rihanna At The Bar (Video)


I mean… look at myself!

Hahaaaaa! You know how some athletes might clam up, play tough or off-brush when talk show hosts hint at blatantly push a love-life line of questionning? That is NOT Joel Embiid’s problem…AT ALL!

Shoot your shot, player! Not mad at you. Of course, you might consider that Jamele Hill is looking pretty nice and Kelly Rowland is hella sexy (as always); and they’re right there.

Because we’re considering it. Yeaaahhh, considering all that right now…

Ice Cube Reveals That “Last Friday” Is In The Works, Gives James Corden A BIG3-Style Hand Check And More (Video)

Marketing GENIUS! For one, going on the ‘Late Late Show’ rocking the BIG3 tee shirt and ‘demonstrating’ some expected rough stuff from his new basketball league (more on BIG3 here) on host James Corden in this segment… then, THENNNN letting it ‘slip’ that another installment of the beloved ‘Friday’ movie series (“Last Friday,” apparently) is in the works. Plus, Jason Derulo giving big-ups to the OG off top. ‘Today was a good day’ for Oshea J. Setting up for a good year!

Ice Cube and Jason Derulo had a blast on ‘The Late Late Show’ on Tuesday night (May 16), with Cube laying down a hard hand-check on host James Corden and Derulo busting out his best Michael Jackson moves.

Watch Remy Ma ‘Rate The Bars’ (Video)

Wow, Remy Ma is RAW! Weezy scores a 2. She recorded with Montana and he got the lowest score she could give. Zero for Fabolous and Joe Buddens, too. EVERYBODY can get it!

Interesting. Remy gave higher than expected rank to enemy-as-of-late Nicki Minaj. Seems like true ratings can come through when you cannot match the lyrics to Hip-Hop’s Who’s Who. Bars matter, not an emcee’s so-called ‘status’ in the game.

Star Trek: Discovery (First Look Series Trailer)

YES!!! Debuting on CBS television, then moving to CBS All Access, the first new Star Trek TV series in 16 years is on the way. Coming this Fall, Star Trek: Discovery! Full disclosure: I am VERY biased in favor of this series for three huge reasons: For one, because Star Trek. Second, there’s my major crush on star Sonequa Martin-Green (whose character went out like a G on AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ a few weeks ago). And then, yooooo, when Michelle Yeoh gives the order to ‘contact Starfleet’ because they have ‘engaged the Klingons’ … I got the same tingles when Captain Piccard (Patrick Stewart) delivered the classic line back in the day (“We have engaged The Borg”).

Before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise there was Discovery. Now, one of the most iconic and influential global franchises returns to television with Star Trek: Discovery. The CBS All Access Original Series arrives this Fall.

Maaaan, I got two boners. Nerd boner. And, well, it’s almost noon, right?

Black Lightning (First Look Series Trailer)

If you remember the B-rate “Black Vulcan” hero from the old, old Superfriends cartoon that used to come on in, like, the 1970s and 1980s… Don’t worry, this is NOT that. Not much cheese being teased in this DC series trailer. At all! Way to go DC. Looks like you folks are learning what Marvel / Netflix has to teach you about making small screen storytelling. Now, if the TV folks (esp. the producers of The Flash and Arrow) could pass some notes to the DC movie makers. Shot.

In fact, I wil go ahead as say it before you do: This trailer for DC’s newest forthcoming hero series – “Black Lightning” – looks and feels a LOT like some LukeCage-meets-Daredevil ‘ish. No shot, just saying.

(Oh, on that shot at DC movies, the first two ‘Superman’ movies were good (RIP Christopher Reeve), Michael Keaton ‘Batman’ vs. Jack Nicholson ‘Joker’ was groundbreaking, and ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy was dope. Respect due. Just that recent ‘Superman vs. Batman’ and ‘Suicide Squad’… at best, on a scale of wack to dope, they score a solid meeeehhh. Solid, but meh).

Big Boi Says White Suits Are Overrated, But How About Blowjob Robots And Other Stuff? (Video)

Big Boi rates bowling, blowjob robots (what??!), Atlanta’s oldest strip club, Hatsune Miku, Sade, pre-rolled joints, and more… No scale, just judging things as ‘pass’ or ‘passed over’ – Over/Under [rated] that is.

Pharrell Williams Talks Praises Kaytranada’s Signature Sound And More (Video)

Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener in the OTHERtone studio with Kaytranada. Appreciation from your peers, even as a producer, is one thing. But props from Pharrell… commendable, noteworthy, epic!

At first, Pharrell had trouble describing Kaytranada’s music and its consistent effect on the listener; then he settled on ‘signature sound’ as a descriptor. Nice.

Marvel Presents ‘The Gifted’ (Series Trailer)

Okay! So FOX is trying to eat off ‘superhero TV’ now. FX is on board for a second season of “Legion” – a show that leans on the door of the X-Men mutant universe.

He’s the one who brought us those first Patrick Stewart x Hugh Jackman x Halle Berry X-Men! Here’s the series synopsis…

What tore them apart is what will bring them together. From Director Bryan Singer, and in association with Marvel Television, comes the all-new FOX series, “The Gifted.”

Action-adventure family drama “The Gifted,” from Marvel, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Charlie Musselwhite & Nas Speak On The Music Of The 1920s And Of Today (Teaser Trailer)

They were rapping about street life and gangsta life…
Nas, Speaking On “On the Road Again” By Memphis Jug Band

A great look for PBS, this episode of “American Epic Sessions” features Charlie Musselwhite (of Memphis Jug Band) and Nas. That line from Greg Nice comes to mind: This is how we take the old to the new. Hear Nas speak on the timelessness and relevance of Musselwhite’s music. And see a bit of the performance of Nas’ cover of “On the Road Again”

(Hip-Hop flavor from the 1920s. Cool!)

DJ Diamond did the damn thang on this ep. of #5MinutesOfFunk though yo. Nothing not to love about it when Funkmaster Flex goes back to the elements. The emcees doing the Freestyles… and now, Turntable Tuesday.

Know that saying, “Time flies” right? Well, it is especially true when a DJ is having fun blacking out on the wheels… like how 5 Minutes becomes 12 Minutes Of Funk. Haaaa! Good stuff!

Politics: Follow the Money… It May Well Connect Russia To President Trump

Keith Olbermann says, “Follow the money,” a LOT in this episode of “The Resistance”… and it’s okay, because it has apparently ben said by EVERYONE except who we think (e.g. credit) as the person who actually said it first. To the point Olbermann is trying to make above, folks who want to get to the bottom of what Trump is up to might do well to heed those words. Here’s Olbermann’s latest rant and his reasoned path to his conclusion about probable Russian collusion (with Trump’s campaign on his Presidential win).
