Sandy Wexler (Netflix Trailer)

Wowwwww. This has got #NetflixAndChill all over it. Please call up that special someone and get some heartfelt laughs going over some hot buttery popcorn on the couch tonight (or whatever night this weekend is good). Chuckles beget silly snorts, silly snorts become snuggles, and one thing, leading to the bada-bing… aaaand who’s making breakfast *wink*

In the 90’s one man ruled Hollywood with an iron fist. Sandy Wexler was not that man.
– Netflix

An ‘Iron Fist’ huh? Clever, Netflix, clever. And kudos, Adam Sandy, that Jennifer Courtney is some serious Eye Candy!

Cancelled: ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ Will Not Return For A 2nd Season

arsenio hall hat reutersFoxNews reports ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ has been cancelled after only one season.

DAMMIT! I thought we had at least one more season with Arsenio, right Jay Leno (that’s what you said)?

Sometimes TV gets it wrong…dead wrong. They (CBS is ‘they’ this time) cancelled ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ already. Fu#kin’ @ssh0les make me so mad! I wanted to take this as a ‘hater rumor’ but the reports are coming in from beyond the blogosphere… and Carmen Breezy announced it on the Beatz & Lyrics show’s Hip-Hop Week In Review. *Sigh* and I found this announcement from the CBS-holes themselves:

“Unfortunately, ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ will not return for a second season while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue. Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”

I don’t want you to go Arsenio. But if you gotta go, please do a dope farewell show. I still YouTube your 90’s Hip-Hop megashow every now and then.

Please. I’m putting it out there. Throwback video after the jump.

Kendrick Lamar on Ice Cube’s Influence & Comparisons To Bob Dylan on ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ (Video)

It’s kinda of wild to see Kendrick Lamar on The Arsenio Hall Show because when the show was poppin’ back in the 90s Kendrick was probably just a toddler. It’s rather special to see Arsenio Hall’s return to late night television & one of his first guests just so happens to be a ‘g.o.o.d. kid’ from the ‘m.a.a.d. city’ of Compton California. Check out video of his performance on the show with Schoolboy Q after the jump below….

After 19 Years, Ice Cube Appears On ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ (Video)

Have you been watching Arsenio Hall’s show this debut week? You should be. Every show so far has historical significance, but this one – with Ice Cube sitting on the guest couch – no doubt sent shock waves through the Hip-Hop universe. Cube promo’d his coming movie projects… dropped some names (Dr. Dre, F. Gary Gray, Kendrick Lamar) … but that’s not what the real hubbub is about. If you KNOW your Golden Era Hip-Hop history (and the lyrics that documented it) you’ll recognize Cube’s words from ‘The N!gga Ya Love To Hate’:

You ask me, Do I like Arsenio? / about as much as the Bicentennial / I don’t give a f*ck about dissin’ these fools / ‘Cause they all scared of the Ice Cube.

You know, back in the day, Arsenio passed on Ice Cube appearing/performing on his original 90s show. Think he might have taken that snub to heart? Well, nearly 20 years later, reconciliation comes with an incredible story. See, a young hot-headed Cube showed up to Arsenio’s set to give the host a piece of his mind for dissin’ the OG. He didn’t see Arsenio… but he did run into a young intern on the show who had just penned a movie script. The intern: John Singleton. His script: “Boyz In The Hood.”

Singleton convinced Cube to play the character that would become known to the world as ‘Dough Boy’ but there’s more… Cube always credits John Singleton as the man who got him to write his first screenplay (“Friday”)… and the rest is cinema (and Golden Era) history!

Arsenio has a hot show going so far. Check your local listings and check for it.

Arsenio Hall, in an Interview With Billboard.
