Eddie Griffin Calling On Psych-Medical Professionals To Declare Trump A ‘Lunatic’ (Video)

Well, damn, Eddie. How do you really feel? Pretty much like a lot of folks… but LOUDER, ROWDIER, and REALER.

Comedian Eddie Griffin is no stranger to voicing his opinion, in part 1 of “The Truth” the funnyman goes on a harangue about Donald Trump’s presidency and how him being an “adolescent adult” will likely lead to another World War. “A childish motherf**ker — I don’t know what happened, but something traumatic happened in Trump’s life around 14 or 15 years old because he’s stuck at that age,” expells Griffin. He then goes on to explain how Kim Jong-Un also had a traumatic adolescence that has led to the two of them going back and forth.

He also says “This a coup pulled off by the Russians, Trump’s motherf**kin’ treasonist ass, the alt-right, KKK, neo-nazis all conspired pulled off a coup of the United States presidency.” Watch the clip to hear him tell it like it is about what’s going on in America and why no one is speaking up.

Wow. And Eddie called every Republican, except Sen. John McCain, treasonous! Shots fired, bombs dropped!

DL Hughley Speaks On Generational Wealth, The Struggle For Civil Rights For Gay People Vs. Black People, And How Comedy Has Helped Humans Evolve (Video)

Black people are jealous of gay people… It’s not hate. It’s jealousy.

Interesting how taglines are chosen. This clip is actually a Part 10 of what we thought was a six-part conversation with DL Hughley. And it is entitled “Black People are Jealous of Gay People,” which is covered in here. BUT Hughley’s thoughts on how important and intrinsic comedy is to humanity are the bulk of what was discussed, and so incredibly insightful. Watch above.

D.L. Hughley opened up to VladTV about his thoughts on generational wealth, his favorite comedians, and how comedy has helped humans evolve.

When it comes to his favorite comedians, D.L. named off Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Redd Foxx, and Robin Harris, and he shared why Dick Gregory and Mark Twain illustrated the human condition in the best way. He also mentioned coming up with Jamie Foxx and being mad that someone could be as talented as the “Ray” actor.

After sharing his thoughts on how Ellen was integral in the way people saw the gay community, D.L. explains how comedy has led to the evolution of humans. You can hear more about what he had to say in the above clip.

Throwback: Buckshot Says Sean Price Saved Duck Down (Video)

Ruck saved us. I’mma just give it to you real simple and plain. Ruck saved us.”

Know what… even back then… even when the crew and the Hip-Hop Nation was still hurting from losing Ruck (aka Sean Price), Buckshot did not have to declare that. But in this throwback interview, Buck (Duck Down’s co-founder, mind you) speaks unbridled truth about P! hitting that booth and continuously hitting us all with street HEAT! There was a while when Price was dropping sh!t weekly or more frequently. Keeping Duck Down and real Hip-Hop alive.

Respect to Buck. For saying this, and for paying full respect (watch the whole clip to see how real that statement is) to Sean Price.

MC Eiht Speaks On Prodigy & Mobb Deep, Emcees Who Want To Be 2Pac, Beef With DJ Quik, And His New Album (Video)

Ice Cube in his prime was better than Jay-Z in his: It feels weird to say at first… but keep repeating it.

Lots to view from this interview and take in!

Tyrin Turner Reveals That “Menace II Society” Was An Answer To A Prayer (Video)

How crazy is that? Well not too crazy actually, depending on where you hold the power of spirituality in your life. But according to the clip above, the “Menace II Society” opportunity (to play Caine) came along in time to answer Tyrin Turner’s desperate plea to the Heavens from his front lawn; right as moms was really pressuring him to get a job and live a ‘responsible life’ that he did NOT want to live.

Los Angeles actor Tyrin Turner here speaks to VladTV about the chain of events that led to him landing the role of Caine in “Menace II Society,” and the group of actors and musicians he worked with on the film, among them Jada Pinkett, Too Short, and 2Pac. Pac, Turner says, read for a part in the movie but wasn’t happy with his character. “2Pac came into the reading. We all started rehearsing and in the middle of it 2Pac was like, ‘Man, I can’t get into this character.'” Get the full story above.

(Whoa! He talked about the Vanilla Ice balcony strong-arm incident in this, too? Yes.)

Havoc Speaks On Coming Up In Queensbridge, Mobb Deep, And Losing Prodigy (Video)

RIP Prodigy for real. And if anyone, ANYONE, should be heard on that, it’s Havoc. They have been through it in all ways – on the come up, after the Mobb fame wave ebbed, falling out with each other, squashing the beef finally, and then… damn.

After the untimely death of Prodigy, DJ Vlad sits down with his longtime friend and the other half of Mobb Deep, Havoc. Havoc details what it was like growing up in Queensbridge, their first rap names, and reveals Prodigy turned down a deal to work with him at first.

Hav also speaks on the rumor of P choking on an egg and the cause of his death before looking back on the legacy that they left in Hip-Hop.

Listen to Havoc pay respect to his brother above.

Kool G Rap Speaks On Mumble Rap, His Album & Tour, And Respect For Sean Price (Video)

I don’t think much of mumble rap, I don’t think highly of it…so many things that young cats are doing have nothing to do with the roots of where this thing started from.
Kool G Rap

Ah! This clip might sting a bit. See, Kool G Rap gets around to [more than] inferring that the surge in popularity of “mumble rap” is the listeners’ fault! Come on… There is a song called “Peek A Boo”… A cat is out here getting MAJOR check from a song called “Peek A Boo.”

Yeah. That’s where we are with the rap that the masses love out here today.

Damn.

(But hey, that new Kool G Rap is LOADED with features from LYRICISTS though… including Sean Price!)

Treach Tells The Truth ‘They’ Tried To Hide From Him About His Homie 2Pac’s Assassination (Video)

Holy sh!t. This went exactly NOT as Vlad expected, but exactly the way it needed to. Bet money that the hit count on this episode goes nowhere near a million. Mumble rap and booty shake, yes, multimillion views. The truth in tell-it-like-it-is vids like this, HELL NO! But that ain’t gonna stop me from watching and sharing this Treach (of Naughty By Nature) confessional. You should do the same. I would not mind being wrong on this one!

Treach opened up to VladTV about getting the news that 2Pac was shot in Vegas, which he initially thought wasn’t a big deal. However, as time went on, he couldn’t get through to anyone close to the wounded rapper, and Treach said everyone knew to keep him away from the hospital due to his hot temper.

During the conversation, Treach spoke about how hard it was to record “Mourn You Till I Join You” and his thoughts on 2Pac’s murder being the worst kept secret. Hit the above video to hear what he had to say.

Russ Speaks On Fake Indie Artists, How He Got On, & How Signed Artists Are ‘Putting Fans On’ (Video)

Russ declares that he knew NO ONE when he was struggling: no plug, no connect, no one to put him down with the ATL scene… and yet he made it as an Indie artist. A true Indie artist… not like the artists that he puts on blast for ‘acting Indie’ when they are already signed.

Yeah, guess it is the thing to be nowadays. You know, it’s kind of like when real po’ folks had baggy or ripped jeans; and fakers made it ghetto chic fashion. Then we see stonewashed jeans and ‘distressed’ denims in retail stores; and artists playing it tough life ‘buying’ them.

(Or maybe today like labels buying their artists song hits and video views… uh oooohhhh. Stay real!)

Lord Jamar Speaks On President Trump, Kanye West Wanting “In” The White House And More (Video)

Brand Nubian’s Lord Jamar is a VladTV regular. Usually comes through provacative & entertaining interviews. Some have that crazy-enough-to-make-scary-sense feel, though, like this one. He touches on Donald Trump’s tendency to Tweet off cuff, while in his feelings… thoughts on Black celebs like Jim Brown and Kanye West meeting with Trump.

Hmmm… Kanye gets dissed as a ‘jackass’ when President Obama was in the White House AND Jay Z and Beyonce were always welcome. Yeezy might be thinking about ‘hitting back’ with visits and while The Trumps run the place?

Interesting viewpoint, Lord Jamar. Interesting…

(Talk about The ‘West’ Wing… Yeezus H. Kanye!)

Talib Kweli tells Vlad that Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Ugly God and the other young’uns in the rap game have something to teach the rap vets. No, helllll nooo; not about putting out good music.

F*ck radio…don’t need no radio… [and] F*CK Gene Simmons!

Heather Hunter: Former Adult Industry Icon & Hip-Hop Insider Speaks (Video)

Vlad interviewed Heather Hunter. I will post most anything I can on Heather Hunter. Dude. Before porn was online, before I could even get it via discreet mail order, Heather’s were performances you sought in that back room of the video rental store or in your homies’ sock drawer stashes. Respect to Vanessa Del Rio, Angel Kelly, and countless other adult film actresses I have enjoyed… but Heather was the MAJOR! Moreover, she experienced cross-industry success in a way others have not. She literally had licks AND lyrics that made men AND women go WOW. Facts!

So how & why did she do it? What happened during & after? Why’d she stop? She tells Vlad. Score and salute for the scoop on this one, sir.

Heather Hunter has enjoyed successful careers in both the film and music industries, and she revealed that while many people would think it would be taboo to come from the industry to music, she got nothing but love. Heather explained that she always had a closeness with the Hip-Hop industry after growing up in the Bronx and frequenting Latin Quarter, one of the first clubs in NYC to play Hip-Hop. Heather added that she was able to work with some big names, including Scott Storch, Timbaland, Uncle Luke, and Akinyele, who mentored her at the beginning of her music career.

During the conversation, Heather also spoke about getting her start in her career after being discovered in the strip club when she was eighteen, after starting in the club just a couple of years earlier when she left home. She added that just one year after being in the business she started working for Vivid as a contract girl, which Heather admitted opened up a lot of opportunities. To hear more from Heather, including why she decided to fully retire from the industry, hit the above clip.

Dr. Umar Johnson Speaks On The Challenges Of Being High-Profile, Being Blindsided By The ‘Conscious Stripper’ And More (Video)

Dr. Umar Johnson: outspoken, massively popular… and a target. In the above interview, he clarifies that high-profile people, such as himself, are targeted by media spinners and even women with unknown motives; specifically, a woman he met in Florida who calls herself the “Conscious Stripper.” She turned on Dr. Johnson in a very public way, and in the fallout from the incident he lost a million-dollar donation from an NBA player he would not name. Dr. Johnson declared that if he had known that he was going to be famous, he would have gotten married before the fame. Marriage calms you down and keeps you out of trouble.

Hmmm… something to consider guys… Put a ring on her, so she can rein you in.
