In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, comedienne Tiffany Haddish open up with her interactions with other celebrities. She talked about greeting and figuring out Roseanne was a racist back in the early 2000’s.   ‘Hi, Roseanne! I love your comedy,’ and she (makes the same disgusted face) and turns her head. I think ‘Fuck that bitch.’ That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it’s not new. She been racist, why’d you all give her a TV show?” she said about her encounter with Roseanne.

Tiffany also admitted that Sanaa Lathan’s family was upset after she told about an encounter between Sanaa and Beyonce. “They were like, ‘Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together, it’s so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?’ But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyoncé kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down.” she said.

Amongst other things, Tiffany talked about how she wasn’t trippin that Tracy Morgan brushed her off in an interview. “I’m not mad about it, I love me some Tracy.” she said about the incident. She also talked about flirting with Leonardo Di Caprio. “Yeah, I met him at a party two, three months ago, and I asked him if he’d let me hit that.” To read Tiffany’s full interview click here.

Confusion and Chaos Describes Kanye West + Kid Cudi’s “Kids See Ghosts” Album

The third installment from Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music camp comes in the form of a collaboration album between Kanye West and Kid Cudi. Their seven track album titled Kid See Ghost features Pusha T, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and Louis Prima. The first track Feel the Love sounds like an intro. and pretty much sets the tone on the album. On this particular song their is just one verse from Pusha T and nothing else, however it is consistent with the concept of Kid Cudi singing or harmonizing hooks accompanied by random verses from Kanye West. The second track Fire kicks off with Ye and follows with a verse from Kid Cudi. I can say after the track went off, I wasn’t feeling the direction the album was going in. Honestly, I was confused on what the hell was going on. The 4th Dimension was the best song I heard in the beginning I like the beat and I thought the lyrics was nice. It was the first song that I nodded my head to. Continue reading

Jay and Bey kicked off their On the Run II Tour yesterday (June 6th, 2018) in Cardiff Wales. One of the highlights of the night was a picture on the big screen of Jay- Z and Beyonce holding twin babies. The photos were accompanied by the captions ‘Love is Universal’ and ‘Love Never Changes.’ People immediately assumed that those twin babies in the pictures were photos of the couples newborns Rumi & Sir Carter. Headlines have been posted online claiming this was the case but it seems it was not so. According to thecut.com via Buzzfeed.com, a representative confirmed that the babies are not Jay-Z and Beyonce twins. Not sure why would the couple show someone else’s babies but at least the babies are cute. To read more about this story click here.

51 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists. That was LeBron’s stat line in game one of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors. When finished the game he was the first person to drop 50 points since Michel Jordan did it in 1993. He was only the sixth player to score 50 points in NBA Finals history. He also tied Jordan for the most 30 point games in playoff history and also tied Jerry West for most 40-point games in a single postseason with eight. The unfortunate thing is that he is the only player to score 50 and lose.

Black Thought & 9th Wonder Fall Short of Expectations With ‘Streams of Thought’ Album [Review + Stream]

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer

I guess the current wave for Hip Hop artists is to drop short albums. First Pusha T dropped a short seven song album called Daytona, Kanye West followed up with his own seven song album named Ye and right after that Black Thought + 9th Wonder released a five song album titled Streams of Thought. Dealing with the latter two, it seems Ye could have more songs and Streams of Thought should have more songs. To elaborate on that thought, Kanye’s album felt like a body of work that you wanted to hear more songs and Black Thought and 9th’s joint felt like you needed to hear more songs. Continue reading

Children of Black Man Killed By Police Only Awarded $1 Dollar For “Mental Pain and Suffering”

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer

A Florida jury consisting of five White women, two White men and one Black man awarded the family of Gregory Hill Jr, 30 , four dollars after concluding a police officer was not responsible for his killing in 2014. Even though Hill was shot three times, the jury decided that St. Lucie County deputy Christopher Newman was justified in killing Hill. They ruled that Hill was 99% responsible for his own death and that Newman’s partner Sheriff Ken Mascara was 1% responsible. As a result of the verdict they awarded Hill’s children who are 7,10 and 13 a dollar apiece and granted one dollar for funeral expenses. “That a black child’s pain is only worth a dollar is exactly the problem with the plight of the African-American right now. This says, black lives don’t matter,” the family attorney John Phillips said. Phillips is planning to file a motion for a new trial in U.S District Court and if he is unsuccessful he will then take it to US 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
