Shaq And Charles ‘Beef’ Over Chicken Wings On Set (Video)

Alright, by now we know Charles Barkley is a Hall Of Famer… at chicken wings AND at chastizing co-color commentator Shaquille O’Neal. Oh, and at basketball. Haaa! Barkley has NO chill going at The Diesel! But Shaq pulls NO punches either in this [sort of uncomfortable] on-set ‘disagreement.’

This Inside The NBA segment goes off the rails when Shaq and Charles Barkley threaten to punch and throw chicken wings at each other while trading barbs.
– NBA On TNT

Okay, okay. They both pull ‘punches’ (meaning nobody got punched). But it got tense. Watch.

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).

10 Actors Who Quit The Business (Video)

It happens. Every now and then, you get to thinking about a man or woman who played some memorable role in a movie or TV series… Often you know or find out that they are still around; maybe they moved on to the next thing (like Patrick Stewart, doing Captain Picard going from Star Trek: The Next Generation to the Professor X of the X-Men franchise) or they are still riding the hell out of their lane (Hugh Jackman does other stuff, but he IS Wolverine). But what about those one-and-done actors. Some have left this mortal life (RIP Michael Clarke Duncan from The Green Mile), but others just quit. Why?

For these 10, here’s why. Some are VERY interesting (like the two young’ns from the Star Wars franchise). Watch.

Famous Impersonator Navi Takes On The Role He Was Meant For In ‘Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland’ (Teaser Trailer)

So Lifetime is gonna do The King Of Pop’s biopic. Interesting. Wonder if it will be more something for the fans, or really go into the never-talk-about parts of the ruler of Neverland.

Based on the best-selling book, Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson In His Final Days, and told through the eyes of Jackson’s trusted bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard. The movie will reveal firsthand the devotion Michael Jackson had to his children, and the hidden drama that took place during the last two years of his life.
– Movie Trailers HD

Seeing that they got the guy who played Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) on AMC’s The Walking Dead. Looks like some good work by Jackson impersonator Navi in there, too. Looking forward to this movie. Check out the teaser above.

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.

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).

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!)

Shaquille O’Neal Says He Is Running For Sheriff In 2020 (Video)

Heeee’s Shaq The Sheriff… and who will be the dep-u-ty?

(Sing it like, “I Shot The Sheriff,” and it’ll make sense. Maybe.)

This is about bringing people closer together. You know, when I was coming up, people love and respected the police, the deputies. And I want to be the one to bring that back, especially in the community I serve.
Shaquille O’Neal

Hmmm… Shaq has homes in Florida and Georgia (right here with us in Metro Atlanta). He’s been a deputy (honorary, but still) and even ‘policed’ Kevin Hart on ‘Real House Husbands’… soooo, like, he’s qualified sort of? Go on and watch. You know you are interested!

Dr. Dre + Jimmy Iovine Are ‘The Defiant Ones’ (HBO Trailer)

That music. Isn’t that on the movie soundtrack for “The Untouchables?” Because that’d be kind of dope.

The Defiant Ones is a four-part documentary series that tells the stories of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre.
– HBO

Debuting July 9th. Another related film coming to the small screen in the ‘Aftermath’ (get it?) of the “Straight Outta Compton” movie.

LA 92 (Full Documentary)

Maybe some of you are too young to really remember the actual Rodney King police brutality case, the trial that ended with the cops who beat him found not guilty, and Los Angeles exploding – throngs of people realizing [again] that Black live did NOT matter. Well, National Geographic condensed those tragic events and the essence and lessons into a near two-hour documentary. That entire program is embedded and ready for watching above.

Twenty-five years after the verdict in the Rodney King trial sparked several days of protests, violence and looting in Los Angeles, LA 92 immerses viewers in that tumultuous period through stunning and rarely seen archival footage. Produced by two-time Oscar winner Simon Chinn and Emmy winner Jonathan Chinn and directed by Oscar winners Dan Lindsay and TJ Martin, the film looks at the events of 1992 from a multitude of vantage points, bringing a fresh perspective to a pivotal moment that reverberates to this day.

Sports: 2 Chainz Shows Out On Kevin Garnett’s Home Court At Area 21 (Video)

HILARIOUS!!

Remember when 2 Chainz took on The Human Highlight Reel aka Dominique Wilkins? Well, go back to that post here… AFTER you watch what we have here above… because Titty Boi 2 Pointer is balling with the Big Leaguers again. And he is giving them enough to where the NBA’ers have to give him some talk back. Get ’em 2 Chainz. Rep the ATL well!

That tape – “Putting It On KG’s Azz” (pause) – is gonna be that fire (um, pause again, just in case). Hahahaaaa!

Bonus behind the scenes trash talk from the pro-ballers after the jump. A whole other thing. Really good though.

Ice Cube’s BIG3 Basketball League Is Coming To Barclays Center This Summer (Video)

Okay, this could be a score for FS1 on Monday nights. Loving the names of the teams for BIG3 Basketball at Barclays (after the jump). Now, if they can avoid the XFL trap of getting too gimmicky with a game folks love… just make exciting basketball… not reinventing the game, just eliminating the lame from that lane… we got something! Plus, handchecking and fairplay freethrows.

Watching Cube and Rappaport break it down in conversation might pique your curiosity to tune in June.

J. Cole: 4 Your Eyez Only (A Dreamville Film) [Video]

So real, it’s surreal.

That’s a Mos Def quote but it works for this documentary. J. Cole’s (and Scott Lazer’s) documentary – bearing the name of Coleworld’s latest LP – originally aired on HBO on April 15, 2017. Cool move allowing this to run online for FREE.99 for everyone who might want to see this but do not have HBO.

Watched it on [not just] TV… about to watch it again here. Join us! Linked the LP again below for you for later, too.

Comedy: Aziz Ansari Diversifies ‘The Late Show’ (Video)

Mixing that Brown with that White… Not a good idea when drinking… but a GREAT idea when it comes to comedy and late night TV. Let the hilarity ensue as Aziz Ansari integrates Colbert’s show. Haaaahahaaa!

When Aziz is sitting next to Stephen, 100% of the people on “The Late Show” are from South Carolina, and 50% are not White. That’s progress!

Neil deGrasse Tyson Talks About The ‘Pale Blue Dot’ And Our Place In The Universe (Video)

I remember a show on TV growing up called “Big Blue Marble” that hinted at the smallness of planet Earth compared to the vastness of space; but it still referred to it as the ‘biggest marble’ in the game. But…BUT… watch modern science guy Neil deGrasse Tyson show us just how small our home is as a place in the universe… but still let us know that we are STILL special.
