Jay Pharoah wants you to know that he is ‘not a yes n!gga’ folks. Hear, in the interview above, the risky career situations where he says ‘no’ to things, how he ended up leaving Saturday Night Live and more. Interesting how he affirmed that they (SNL) attempted to pigeonhole him as the Black impressionist; then he tossed that Chris Rock impression right in there within minutes (then a smidge of President Trump later).
(Did Jay say he got ‘White famous’ around the 8-minute mark though? Hahaa!)
Samuel L. Jackson talks about President Trump, racism in America, Hollywood’s casting of British Black actors in ‘American’ roles, “Kong: Skull Island,” and more. See? Waaaay more than just the 2 controversial minutes here or there the gossip sites are gushing about.
(Google that sh!t if you like. We don’t do that here.)
But something else of note: Jackson, in response to Ebro’s lead-in, touches on the historical racist undertones in all the “King Kong” movies (like we did on here). Yeah. Talk more about that mainstream.
In this sit-down, Pharrell also speaks on who “Happy” was originally for… goes into his love for A Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, living in Virginia, and much more! A lot of meat in a relatively short, but deep conversation. Pharrell Williams talks about the “Hidden Figures” movie – for which he served as producer and soundtrack composer. Even segueing into that early on got deep.
Don’t trust the polls…Millennials don’t answer house phones, and there’s 43 million Americans.
Well worth the half-hour. Peep.
Ultimate Industry Insider Steve Stoute And Kaz Speak On TheStashed.com, Making Music & Marketing History And More (Video)
Steve Stoute – mogul, music exec, mover-and-shaker – has partnered with Kaz of TheStashed.com and they are making a late major move, taking the online presence over to the print industry. Interesting, very interesting, as the media world seems to be moving off-page to online (e.g. the opposite direction). But we MUST hear these guys out; especially Stoute. Why?? Don’t tell us you don’t know about Stout’s marketing agency Translation LLC, the origin story of the tagline/jingle for McDonald’s “I’m Loving It” campaign, the State Farm ads…
Hmmm… if not, it would seem you have some Googling to do. But wait-wait. You can do a LOT of catch-up by just watching this interview (above). There is SO much more to tell, too. Hear these folks tell it!
T.I. stopped by the Hot 97 Morning Show to talk about his superstar procrastination with regard to getting new music out, about his and Izzy Azaela’s situation, prospects regarding an “ATL” sequel, and more.
Bridget Kelly stops by the Hot 97 NY morning show to talk about her new single and EP with Mack Wilds (“Act Like That” off “Summer Of 17” – which we posted earlier here), her life after the Roc Nation deal ended, future career aspirations, being single going into her 30s… LOTS of time spent on sex and dating and more. Fun interview with the super sexy Kelly. Watch.
Miguel stopped by the Hot 97 studios to promo his single “Coffee” as well as his forthcoming album, “Wild Heart.” But since he was there, he talked to the Morning Show crew about what the Met Gala is, what’s going on in his relationship with girlfriend Nazanin Mandi, what was up working with super-producers DJ Premier and Pharrell Williams and Wale and much more.
Azealia Banks Speaks The Raw And Real On Grand Hustle Family, T.I., Iggy Azalea, Black Music And More (Video)
I honestly don’t know much about Azealia Banks’ music, but I’ve seen her commentary on twitter about quite a number of things & I’ve often retweeted a few things she said on social media that proved to me that she’s wise & aware beyond her 23 years. When I saw everyone talking about her recent interview it piqued my interest to see what the fuss was about. After watching this interview I’m more of a fan of Azealia Banks the person even though I’m not too familiar with her music.
On ya Hot 97 yesterday that’s the word! RZA dropped in on the Hot 97 Morning Show to chat about his new movie (“Brick Mansions,” co-starring with the late Paul Walker), about the Wu-Tang Clan, about Raekwon’s recent comments about him, and more.
