Mysonne Speaks On It: Meek Mill’s Going Back To Jail Is ‘Bigger Than Meek’ (Video)

Okay, everybody believes in justice. But, when it comes to fitting the punishment to the crime, how far is too far? Interesting and compelling discussion here. Mysonne & Carmen Perez speak on the pending Meek Mill jail bid as an example and jumpoff point for extended discussion on a trend of unusual punishment, the scales of justice being unfairly tipped and more.

Taking The Knee: If Terry Crews Was Still In The League, He Would Kneel (Video)

Damn. The preview clip. Crews popped! Got a point though. Football, as we know it in The States, is pretty much just “American football”… The world doesn’t play it that way. We are ‘playing ourselves’ if we think the world gives a good van DAM about the Sunday games or whether we boycott them.

BUT… He does talk some real talk about what everyone in the WORLD would care about… human lives, liberty, love… or the lack thereof. The U.S. nor the NFL, really not loving Black people.

All that and more. Plus Terry with a great perspective on your worth as a HUMAN BEING.

Watch!

Sean Price’s Wife Bernadette & Dru Ha Talk About Sean P. And “Imperius Rex” (Video)

Who doesn’t love how Boot Camp and Bernadette are keeping Sean P. alive through the music and shows nowadays? We see the on stage and hear the audio releases, but now we get a chance to hear from the Clik’s honcho Dru Ha and Mrs. Price. On point, off stage, and outside the booth.

Get the whole enchilada: How Sean and Bernadette met, how the contributions to “Imperius Rex” fell into place so wonderfully and more. Too much to even preview. Plus why ruin the watch. I will tell you that you want to know how Jay-Z, Eminem and others are tied into all this.

(Remembering the Prices’ daughter’s name… Shaun Price… Plus Bernadette said Sean ‘guided her’ from above on this project. Dammit. There go the tears again!)

La La Anthony Speaks On Parenting & Life Apart From Carmelo, Her Career And More (Video)

Have you SEEN La La looking so so DELICIOUS on “Power” on Starz? Have MERCY, she is so fine! Plus, an actually good actor.

LaLa breaks it down with ‘Ebro In The Morning’ on how she feels about Phil Jackson being fired, where her and Melo stand right now, and how she got her first big break.
– Hot 97

Great interview. Real talk. Gotta imagine that her radio background helps her communicate all this so well, too.

Around the 10-minute mark – even the list of friends is HOT, and ‘bye Phil-lecia’ hahaaa!

(Confirmed: La and the homie 4-IZE did ‘live together’ back in the day, just like he rapped on “How’d That Work Out?” She said it in here! Salute to the homie.)

Roc Marci is in the building… and the only one of his UN comrades who kept it pushing in the music grind. But Roc keeps in touch with the homies regardless (good). Hear him talk about “Rosebudd’s Revenge” (the album), being his own boss, loving that West Coast living and more.

Jay Pharoah Speaks On Leaving SNL, Remembers Charlie Murphy And More (Video)

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!)

Joey Bada$$ Says New York Hip-Hop Is Stale And New York Radio Is Not Helping (Video)

Respect to Joey Bada$$. We listen to him on that mic because when he touches mics, he continually earns that respect. Take in what he is saying about the stagnation in Hip-Hop. What he is saying about how things must and do change, including Hip-Hop. Caution: It’s gonna sting a bit of you are a boom-bap-over-trap or new-stuff-is-not-real-rap proponent. There must be a righteous middle ground though. Joey calling old heads on holding the youth in the game back… saying that to ‘Old Man Ebro‘… that’s some live and direct sh!t. But as an early 20-something who’s pretty much a vet, we have to let him say it.

Maybe we should really try to give space on the established (read: old) channels for new artists out here.

Now, of course, there is much more to this interview. But that part packs a punch.

(Okay, Joey. Message received. But we reserved the right to trash trash music.)

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!

Illa J Speaks On Being The Brother Of A Legend, J Dilla’s Legacy As On Of The Best Ever And More (Video)

A damn good 15 minutes of watching right from the start! Is there a downside to being the brother of the late great J Dilla (besides him not being here, of course)? Fam, there’s a downside to everything. But there were lots of good things and times, too. Honest talk with Peter Rosenberg from the younger Yancey.

Illa J Discusses New Album, the Downside of Being J Dilla’s Brother and his own come up in music on Real Late.

Illa J Speaks On His Upcoming Self-Titled LP, The Downside To Being J Dilla’s Brother And More (Video)

Allow Detroit’s Illa J to reintroduce himself (in the radio interview above, and with his album linked below). He is very much and very proud to be the brother of the late great J Dilla. The challenges or having expectations on his shoulder; they’d come anyway. He pushes hard to earn. But being seen as just ‘some dude flowing over Dilla beats,’ or as some Slum Village hanger-on… nah, miss him with that.
