Comedy: Which Does 50 Cent Like More, The Cast Of ’50 Central’ Or The Cast Of ‘Power’? (Video)

Is this really a question? The answer is so obvious… Naturi Naughton! ‘Tasha’ is DEFINITELY the winner… of everything (wow)!

The cast of “Power” asks 50 Cent if they’re better than the cast of “50 Central.”

The Story Of How Models Helped Hip-Hop Stars Make Videos That Made Money… Until The Game Changed (Trailer)

VIXEN. Simple, powerful title. Makes sense with coverage of Karrine Steffans (and her book) in this.

Saw this described elsewhere as exploring the ‘Video Vixen Era.’ Never thought of it as an era, but the MODELS (not the rappers or singers) in music videos that caught major buzz before Instagram… yeah, that’s a thing. Should make for some worthwhile watching. That, plus sexy women…

Melyssa Ford, Buffie The Body, Karrine Steffans and more video vixens write themselves back into Hip-Hop history in this BET Original Documentary.

Comedy: Keep It Lit. Hit Her With The ‘Henny D**k’ (Video)

Is there such a thing as ‘too far’ when it comes to 50 Central going for the funny? I’m asking…

Vince Swann tries out the next craze in helping his member stay lit.

Harder than Black Panther’s armor. Yeah, she finna get it!

50 Central Needs These Actors To Be A Little More ‘Urban’ At Their Auditions (Video)

So right, but so wrong. Hahaaa!

I will admit to being a little uncomfortable, so I know the actors were when they got the Black card slammed down on them at the audition all of a sudden. Ole girl reeeeally drew it out for effect and let them sweat before letting them in on the joke.

Now, what would happen if you went to an audition & they told you to be ‘more Urban?’

Nick Fraser Speaks On The Good & Bad That Came From His “Why You Always Lyin” Going Viral (Video)

Remember that “Why You Always Lyin” that Nick Fraser went viral with? I remember thinking: “I wonder if kids listening/watching this even know who RL and Next are?” Ha!

Remixing Next’s “Too Close” on Vine got him more than he bargained for.

Should we add a category for Internet celebrities called ‘ceWEBrity’ (like Tosh.0 does on Comedy Central)?

Nipsey Hussle Stays True To Himself, Even If It Means Being ‘Uncomfortable’ (Video)

You get the furthest being authentic…

And that’s that if you ask Nip Hussle. While he kinda went with the temp of the room (e.g. the rest of the guys declaring that your ‘approach’ should fit the circumstances), Nipsey did hold to the ‘no code-switching’ mode. Gotta believe that being Hussle made him a boss. Why would he change his persona for anyone, in any situation? Respect.

The rapper chats with the men of “BET’s Mancave” about being uncomfortable.

Yung Joc Hosts “Plates And Poles.” Watch Episode 1 Now (Video)

It goes down like THAT at the strip club… like shrimp & salmon with mac & cheese? Like THAT??? Apparently so in Atlanta. And Yung Joc is going to kick off this “Plates And Poles” series and bring you the real deal full meal on it.

Man, you’ll be ogling what Chef Kelz puts on them plates about as much as you’d be ogling the ‘shoe models’ at The Blue Flame. Hahaaa!

Comedy: Trying To Get That Old Thing Back? Curtis And Vivica Go To Couples Therapy On ’50 Central’ (Video)

This could have gone any number of ways, and Fif ‘n Viv played havoc with all of them… a little jokey-jokey, some gangsta sh!t, some a lot of sexual innuendo.

After years of separation, the two moguls enter the same room for a therapy session and things get a little dangerous.
– BET Networks

Bwaaahahaa! Viv was about to “Set It Off” (caught that?) on 50 Central… Whoa! Put the knife DOWN!

Besides… I see you… keeping thangs tizzight, Ms. Fox. I’m saying though. Maybe 50 don’t want that thang-thang, but I know a dude who wanna see about it (raised my hand, hoping to raise my… heh… nevermind).

Black Love: Flex Alexander & Shanice (Video)

So adorable I can hardly stand it. Like right up there with Papoosa & Remy Ma’s tried and true lovey-dovey love. In theirs and in Flex Alexander & Shanice’s cases, I am drooling at how hot the ladies are but cannot hate on their dudes… and thus, I end up rooting for their relationships. There is hope and happiness; because there is Black Love. A couple like this proves it! Through thick and thin and thick again. Watch Flex’Nice talk about it.

Black Love: Remy Ma And Papoose (Video)

Hip-Hop’s most lovable lyricists tell us what’s real about their real love. Not surprising that this clip will make you go ‘awww.’ That’s what we are used to now. Not even surprised that they’ve lasted this long. After being loyal through Ma’s stretch in jail, why would Pap go anywhere? Devotion, his wifey being fire on the mic and fine everywhere else (rowrrr)… Sure, those things are part of the story… but watch and listen as the loving couple tell us more.

Respect for women; not just his woman. That got Ma, not the bars, huh? Interesting.

Watch Royce Da 5’9 ‘Rate The Bars’ (Video)

Some of the ‘ratings’ on this clip surprised me a bit, but others were right on par with what I thought Royce would rate. Still a great content concept and I agree with the scores for the most part.

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.

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.

Can you believe it has been 20 years since AZ (born Anthony Cruz) dropped that “Doe Or Die” maaaan? BET is doing a 20th Anniversary celebration and has enlisted the G-O-D-M-C Rakim to narrate. The story is told in six parts. Part 1 is above. Part 2 is after the jump.

Looks like a great start!
