Activism: 23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America (Video)

Remember when Chris Rock did the comedic PSA “How To Not Get Your Ass Kicked By The Police” on his show years ago? No? We’re not surprised.

Chris Rock Speaks On His Two Kids, ‘Top Five’ And More (Video)

For real for real, Chris Rock has been in this game strong for decades. Short and plain: He knows some sh!t. Take this opportunity to eavesdrop on The Tonight Show convo that he and host Jimmy Fallon have (on a variety of hilarious topics).

On parenthood. Have a ton of kids… or none at all. Having just one is too much work!
On “Top Five.” It’s hard to write a script…but it’s not when you have no job!
On his rap deal. I was nice… never came out though. I’m the ‘Lance Armstrong’ of smart!
On jinky promoters. Offer you everything… BUT what you need. One offered me his girl (‘You want Sheryl?’)!

Too short and plain? Okay, watch the first clip above… and keep on after the jump. You’ll get it (e.g. the chuckles)!

Chris Rock Says Kanye West’s ‘MBDTF’ Is Probably The Best Album In The Last 25 Years (Video)

Social media has been abuzz about Chris Rock’s recent statements in a promo interview for his new film ‘Top 5’ when he made statements about Kanye West’s now classic My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ album. Chris Rock says stated that he believes that Kanye’s ‘MBDTF’ album could probably be the best album over Michael Jackson’s iconic Thriller’ album & the best album overall in the last 25 years. I don’t know if I can say the impact was greater than Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ album, but Kanye West is this hip hop generation’s equivalent to Michael Jackson in so many ways. The difference is that Kanye West does indeed make popular records that also make you think. I know Kanye West is the most popular hip hop artist in the world today, but I’ll also add that he’s also one of the most important artists in the last 10 years or more.
