Business: How Bear Grylls Really Makes All His Money (Video)

Shame on me for falling for the okeydoke. Here I am thinking the dude just rakes in cash from insanely hopping out of helicopters, taking off his shirt whenever possible, and eating all kinds of unnecessary bugs with a British accent. But nah, son. Grylls is about that grind. Drinking from streams is only one stream of income for Bear. He is trying to drown himself in potential liquidity… and he is NOT wasting any water #PickUpPennies #PinchPennies #PocketPennies #PoundsAndPounds #GryllsGotGuap

Man vs. Wild star Bear Grylls has actually got quite a few side projects that help keep that cash flowing even when he’s not in front of the camera. Here are some of the highlights from his financial journey over the years that have helped him mint his fortune in spades.

Okay, so your favorite rappers might tell you how pretty they are and/or how they ‘keep it moving’… But bet your next check and someone else’s that they have NOTHING on these beautiful nomads. Fascinatingly different culture than what most of us experience in the States (or even in our travels)!

Watch and learn all about the Wodaabe in this documentary.

Politics: Hasan Minhaj On Hip-Hop And Streaming (Video)

Great show on the impact of Hip-Hop… on Hasan himself and the world!

On the latest episode of Patriot Act, Hasan dissects how the rise of music streaming on platforms like YouTube, Spotify, and SoundCloud has influenced the sound, reach, and impact of modern day Hip-Hop. While streaming technology has led to the commercial viability of SoundCloud rappers, it is simultaneously enabling rap as a viable form of protest against oppressive regimes around the world.

Get your laughs, but pay attention and learn something. ‘Professor’ Minhaj is always teaching with his humor.

Comedy: “Kevin Hart: Irresponsible” Coming To Netflix This April (Trailer)

Okay. So it looks like Kevin is gonna talk about his marriage scandal… pretty bold. But then again, when he got a grip on things he talked about his first marriage’s end candidly; on and off stage. Being able to speak on what most would think should be ‘too personal’ kinda makes a comedian ‘bulletproof’ right? But I remember his cheating and getting caught on tape was off limits (re: his friend Michael Blackson’s comments on the scandal hitting Kevin too close to home when word first got out).

Back on stage. Back to business. On April 2, Kevin Hart brings his sold-out comedy tour, Irresponsible, to a global audience for his first original Netflix standup special. The one-hour special was filmed in front of a sold-out audience of over 15,000 people at the O2 Arena in London, England. Hart touches upon his friends, family, travel… and a year filled with Irresponsible behavior.

Trailer looks funny. Get that Netflix paper then, Kev!

Politics: Hasan Minhaj On Indian Elections (Video)

Baaaahahaaa! That montage at the beginning is everything! But sorry family, Hasan Minhaj is DOING his show on politics in India. No matter the risk.

On the latest episode of Patriot Act, Hasan analyzes the current state of politics in India and what it means to him as an Indian-American, with a focus on the country’s upcoming elections. With around 900 million voters, India has the largest and one of the most complex democracies in the world. Hasan discusses how recent conflicts with Pakistan, widespread economic issues under current Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a resurgence of Hindu nationalism, and corruption scandals amongst major political parties in the country will play a role in determining the future, and the identity, of India.

Gangsters In Paradise (Documentary)

My dad was God… at least to me…and since I could not fight God, I’d fight everybody else.

Damn. That is the definition of f’d up AND a damn near perfect description of the condition that sets a gangster on his path in life. Wow. Another in-depth hard-hitting VICE doc, covering content you just won’t get anywhere else.

In Gangsters in Paradise – Deportees of Tonga, VICE embeds with four Tongan nationals who have been sent back to the tiny island nation where they were born after serving prison time in New Zealand and the United States. Former gang members, they often struggle to reconnect with the culture, the language, and the people.
– VICE

Interesting when you realize that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is half Tongan and half Black. He could have been all f’d up in the game. He still probably would feel some pain watching this. As should we all.

Just Dala: Meet the Bubble Heads of Cape Town (Doumentary)

Sneakerheads in the hood are sneakerheads in the hood, worldwide. And they (including you, if the shoe fits) will see at least some of themselves in this docu-film.

Here we talk to some of the scene’s most influential insiders to learn about life in one of the country’s poorest communities and how locals live their life with dignity and with the freshest kicks.

Sean Paul and Chi Ching Ching Tasting And Teaching Jamaican Food & Culture To Horsepowar (Video)

‘First We Feast’ keeps coming up with good content. Of course, it is food-centered, so you know that will interest most humans. However, they really put work into the ‘human interest’ side of their series. This one on Jamaican Food, too.

Sean Paul is a dancehall icon and certified hit maker. But he’s also a ride-or-die obsessive when it comes to the food of his native Jamaica. Anxious to learn more about Jamaican curry goat, Horsepowar follows Sean and his latest Dutty Rock signee, Chi Ching Ching, to Glady’s Jerk Center in Brooklyn—a new-school home for Caribbean cuisine on Rogers Avenue. From a crash-course in patois, to a heated beef-patty taste test, Sean and Chi Ching school Horsepowar on all things Jamaican before diving into a couple heaping bowl of curry goat and oxtail. The Curry Shop heads to the Caribbean this week, and who better to breakdown the dos and don’ts than two generations of dancehall legends? Jeesam peas!
– First We Feast

They lost Horsepowar with the patois at first. She had to call a timeout on the chit-chat. Ha!

Food/Travel: Jo Koy’s Filipino Foodie Course Looks Epicly Delicious (Video)

You didn’t think Action Bronson was the only rapper that was heavy into foodie-ism, did you? Actually, I kinda get it if you did… what with Bam Bam being the one we see most across that part of the blogosphere. But First We Feast just busted through that crusted wall!

Welcome to the Curry Shop: a new weekly series that explores one of the world’s most misunderstood comfort foods. From Japan to Jamaica to China to Vietnam, every culture has its own spin on a bowl of curry—and Indian-Canadian rapper Horsepowar is here to sample them all.

The first stop on Horsepowar’s quest is the Philippines. To help Horsepowar answer some of her burning curry questions, she’s teaming up with the hilarious Filipino comedian and food philosopher Jo Koy. At Maharlika in NYC, Jo drops some knowledge about Bicol Express—a spicy, coconut-based stew that bears a striking resemblance to some of the curries Horsepowar has sampled in her travels. But the feast doesn’t end there: From remixed chicken and waffles, to 7-Up–cured pork tenderloin, Jo and Horsepowar also explore the cultural roots of Filipino fusion before making a final verdict on Bicol Express. Is Bicol Express truly a curry? Is curry really just a stew? Find out the answers to these existential food queries on the series premiere of the Curry Shop.

Will Smith’s First Time Bungee Jumping (Video)

Mannnn!

I’m saying though… Can Will at least LOOK a bit nervous? Dude runs through challenges like a kid who’s never even skinned a knee. Maybe that’s the key to his seeming invincibility when he takes on these ‘fun’ life challenges: He channels childlike wonder and thrill at how awesome the end will be; giving NO power to the travails of getting the ‘means’ (Big Willie gots BREAD) or the time spent in the meantime (don’t dwell, just do)!

Final Season For Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” (Trailer)

Somewhere between numbing pain caused by the loss of Sean Price and the recent demise of Mac Miller lies the feeling of continued mourning for late travel & food enthusiast Anthony Bourdain. Got his final season’s trailer here, featuring his voice. Might wanna grab a tissue and some water before you press play. Things might get emotional hearing his voice one more time…

(Comedian W. Kamau Bell’s comments really bring it home, too.)
