Ali Shaheed Muhammad & Consequence Speak On ‘A Tribe Called Quest’ Being Snubbed By The Grammys (Video)

Could you file this in the ‘butthurt’ folder? You could, but that is an egregious oversimplification. Come on. Not even a ‘nomination’ for their last album? Whether or not you agree, ATCQ should at least be heard on this. Sway thought so…

Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Consequence of A Tribe Called Quest, stop by to talk about their last video and their collaboration with Billionaire Boys Club. They ended up getting into the Grammy’s Snub of their last album and what that meant.

Hmm… a lotta business being spoken of in this clip. Might want to pay attention to how you hustle to maintain. Tribe’s got a name folks recognize. But don’t think them dropping their last album means they’re ready for rest. Naaaaah, son. Recognize!

Dee-1 Speaks On His New Album, His Career & Life Thus Far, And Kills It On The “Five Fingers Of Death” Challenge (Video)

Sway started off by saying, “God is great.” Truth! And Dee-1, on that mic, not too shabby. Gotta recognize that. If not now, after you watch dude SNAP on the “Five Fingers Of Death” freestyle segment of this interview, you will!

But don’t skip past the interview. Compelling content. Dee-1 talks about how a male executive ‘tried him’ (e.g. tried to make him do sexual favors). Now that is way past Industry Rule #4080 sh!t there.

Good to see Dee-1 make it through. Still standing. On God, and His Word.

Salute!

Gabrielle Union Speaks On Sexual Freedom, Her Book, And Husband Dwyane Wade Reuniting With Lebron James (Video)

Daaaamn, Gab! Started flipping your “fun switch” at 5? Trolling for Black men in the Yay Area in later years? Telling the young ladies to demand that good ‘gina gobbling AND azz-eating from these men out here (because reciprocity)? You wild out here like that?!

Okay, women’s liberation for real. FREEDOM… sexual and otherwise! Well, go ‘head Being Mary Jane on ’em then *wink*

(That ain’t all. Just some “juicy” bits to lure you in. Actually a very thoughtful interview. Balanced. Talking to a grown woman.)

You. WANT. To. Watch this whole interview! It goes down (everyone does, watch)!

Maaaan, Karyn Parsons was and IS that kind of fine that makes you wanna cuss out loud and call a friend over to celebrate her hotness with you. But you don’t cuss, you don’t call out… You stay put and stare, engaged, not even sure how you’d react if she gave you convo; let alone “a shot.” Yes, gentlemen and ladies, you would so wanna ‘cuff’ Karyn. Even now that cuffing season is over. Even more so after you watch this interview.

You’ll remember today’s guest from her role as Hilary Banks from the popular NBC sitcom, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Today, actress and writer Karyn Parsons is the founder and president of Sweet Blackberry, a foundation that aims to teach children stories of African American achievement.
