Hasan Minhaj On ‘Drug Pricing’ (Video)

Hard work keeping the funny in this half-hour monologue on a very serious matter: Price gouging by Big Pharma at the expense of more than half the U.S. citizenry. But Hasan did it.

On the latest episode of Patriot Act, Hasan dissects one of America’s most pressing issues: the rising cost of prescription drugs. Hasan breaks down how America’s complicated healthcare industry has lead to these price hikes over the past few decades, and looks specifically at how increases in insulin prices have impacted the millions of Americans that need it to survive.

WHAT???! Method Man & Redman Will NOT Star In “How High 2” (Video)

Damn right Redman felt disrespected that he and Method Man were kept in the casting, or even in the friggin’ loop, for “How High 2.” Respek on his name for not going at Lil Yachty & DC Young Fly though. No need to trash the young bros. Not their fault. Lift them up. Hope they do well in it.

We interviewed Redman recently and asked him how he felt about being replaced with Lil Yachty and DC Young Fly on the sequel to his movie with Method Man “How High.” Full Interview coming soon.
– HipHopDX

Okay. But I will be on the lookout for that new Red & Meth movie project… whatever it is, whenever it is ready!

JR Writer – “Run Tory Run” (Prod. By Criss Childs)

Wasn’t really checking for the Tory Lanez rap challenge and response drama. Then I came across the video of Lanez backing down one of the emcees that responded with the smoke and was like ‘Wow, it got personal and HEATED with Dax… damn’ (see after jump). THEN I saw this from JR Writer.

That sht he pulled with the kid Dax was CORNY.. stop making challenges if you can’t handle the pressure.. PERIOD.
JR Writer on YouTube

So, JR did not approve of Tory backing down Dax over a track (ya think?). He even wrote a song about it. Wanna hear it? Here it go! Next in a long line of ‘challenge accepted’ submitters, this “Run Tory Run” from the former Dipset spitter.

‘Officer Clemmons’ Speaks On Being Black In “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” (Video)

Hope you got to spend Valentine’s Day celebrating love in some way. I sat down and watched a documentary on a legend who lived a life of love; influencing generations to be better people as he made his way in the world. Man, if only we had Mr. Rogers around now. Rest in peace to the legend Fred Rogers.

Then I found this Great Big Story on ‘Officer Clemmons’ on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. So wonderful!

Remember Officer Clemmons, the policeman from “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood?” Actor Francois Clemmons was initially reluctant to take the role. Growing up in the late ’60s, Clemmons didn’t have a positive opinion of the cops at the time. But Fred Rogers convinced him, and Clemmons became one of the first Black actors to have a recurring role in a children’s TV program.
– Great Big Story

You gotta watch this story and check for the “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” documentary on HBO or on-demand on YouTube. Well worth watching!

Michael Jai White Speaks On Being Addicted To The Streets And Having Violent Thoughts (Video)

Wow. Never really thought of Michael Jai White coming from the streets like that. Sure he has an edge that comes through in his acting, but according to what he is telling Vlad it is coming from a real gangsta-influenced background. He just went the other way in his life.

In this clip, Michael Jai White detailed his tough upbringing and the time he spent in the streets. Michael said that he loved fighting growing up and was addicted to the street life. He revealed that he’d been in 12 shootouts over the course of his life and explained how he ended up taking guns from adversaries after beating them up.
– DJ Vlad

And dude loved to fight. So much so he would rather be in a gang fight than hook up with the finest Honey in town! His words. Watch the clip.

(At least he gets to do both as ‘Black Dynamite.’ Ha!)

RaMell Ross’ Critically-Acclaimed Documentary On Black Life In The Rural South Debuts On PBS (Trailer)

Saw RaMell talking to Trevor on ‘The Daily Show’ about this. Oscar-nominated. Cool. Put the lens on being Black and from Alabama (raising my hand)… and it’s February (Black History Month). Word.

RaMell Ross’s “Hale County This Morning, This Evening,” one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films, is a dreamy and intimate journey through the world of Hale County, Alabama, a richly detailed glimpse into life in America’s Black Belt.

“Horror Noire” Explores How Black People Love Horror Movies, But Don’t Always Get Love Shown In Return (Trailer)

Yeah. Why do they do us like that? Why do we have to die so fast, at least in the older horror movies? We ain’t tripping…

(Really. That’s Becky-With-The-Good-Hair who always trips and falls when running from monsters & killers. She oughta die ASAP, right? Haaaa!)

Based on the acclaimed book of the same name by Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman, HORROR NOIRE takes a critical look at a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and embraced both Black filmmakers and Black audiences.

Featuring interviews with Ernest Dickerson (Bones), Rusty Cundieff (Tales from the Hood), Jordan Peele (Us), Tina Mabry (Mississippi Damned), Tony Todd (Candyman), Paula Jai Parker (Tales from the Hood), Tananarive Due (My Soul to Keep), and Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman.

What Are Full-Time Rideshare Drivers Making Yearly? (Video)

This New Yorker makes up to $540 a day driving for Uber, Juno and Lyft from CNBC.

Knowing folks who drive for companies like Uber and Lyft (like we all do at this point), does anybody know if the fares are really fattening pockets out here in these streets though?

Watch and learn.

Politics: Hasan Minhaj On Saudi Arabia Banning ‘Patriot Act’ & Chinese Censorship (Video)

Aw, look at that. Hasan Minhaj’s “Patriot Act” is growing up before our eyes… It got major enough to make Saudia Arabia ban the show.

On the first new episode of Patriot Act in 2019, Hasan addresses the government of Saudi Arabia’s legal demand to take down an episode of the show in that country and turns his focus to another country with restrictive censorship laws: China. But by using the Internet, Chinese activists are making their voices heard and a determined #MeToo movement may be creating lasting change.

Eye Candy: Former Child Star Parker McKenna Is Finally ‘Comfortable’ With Her Body (Video)

Hey, I have absolutely NO problem separating ‘young Katy’ on a TV show from the fit-thickulous snack that is the WOMAN that is today’s Parker. Sorry for any haters out there, but her body is ‘woken up’ and she keeps it trained up.

Parker McKenna isn’t young Katy from My Wife & Kids anymore and wants you to know! She reveals the motivation behind her working out and what keeps her confident.
– BETNetworks

Watch how Parker keeps her slim thick physique, and her life in general, together.

(That voice. Wonder if it will be like that when she is totally over her cold. Hella sexy!)
