Chance The Rapper supports "Get Out" in a big way



Chicago native Chance the Rapper is supporting the new horror film "Get Out" in a big way.

Chance the Rapper bought all the tickets to the film at a local theater, just so fans could see the movie.“I bought all the tickets to #GetOut at Chatham Theatre on 87th Just pull up with ID and enjoy the movie,” he wrote on Twitter.


Chance has seen the movie adding, “DID I NOT TELL YALL #GETOUT WAS INCREDIBLE!! BEST FILM ACROSS ANY GENRE IN AWHILE GO SEE IT TODAY!

The film is get out. It is a horror film that also deals with interracial dating. The director has described the film as "a horror spin on “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” for the post-Obama age".

Chance has become his own brand in a lot of ways. Chance is not signed to a record label. He controls himself. He releases his music for free and makes revenue through the sale of concert tickets
or apparel like his famous #3 hat. Time will determine if Chance The Rapper has staying power and more importantly influence beyond music.

Certain athletes and musical figures have that power to promote beyond their immediate sphere. Lebron James or The Rock certainly come to mind.

"Hidden Fences" Mishap Strikes again

The 2017 Oscars are underway but there has already been a major flub. The Oscar nominated movies "Hidden Figures" (starring our girl Taraji P Henson) and "Fences" (starring Denzel Washington) have already been referred to as "Hidden Fences".
 This is the SECOND time in the award season that this has happened. The first was at the Golden Globes on the red carpet when Jenna Bush Hager was interviewing Pharrell Williams who was nominated for best original score for “Hidden Figures”. When Jenna accidentally referred to it as “Hidden Fences”, Pharrell gave a very confused look which was caught on camera. Later that night when Michael Keaton was presenting Golden Globe nominees he also used the title “Hidden Fences”. This time People Magazine editor in chief, Jess Cagle, made the same mistake on the red carpet (luckily both Jenna Bush Hager and Jess Cagle have apologized).
The incidents made people think about if the mash-up could have been avoided. Do these people not care enough to even get the names of two separate (that just so happens to have black leads) movies right? It is a prestigious award show meaning presentations should have been rehearsed and red carpet questions should have been carefully practiced before the big night to avoid any mistakes. Especially with something as simple, yet important, of a task such as getting the names right.

Bill Paxton Passes Away at 61

Actor Bill Paxton who played a Polygamist on the HBO series ‘Big Love’ and also starred on ‘Twister’ and the reboot series on CBS, ‘Training Day’ has sadly passed away at the young age of 61-years-old. He also appeared in ‘Aliens’ as well as other movies including ‘The Terminator’ ‘Weird Science’ ‘Predator 2’ and much more.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, his family made a statement Sunday about his death stating:

“It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery.” 

They also talked about how he was a loving husband and father and how he began his career in Hollywood. According to his family, Paxton had a true love for the arts and actually started his career working on film in the arts department. He then went on to act in many different TV shows and movies.

He passed away on the same day as the 89th annual Academy Awards. Surely, he will be remembered during the show.

Paxton was a native Texan and worked with many people during his career including James Cameron. Cameron gave Paxton his first job in Hollywood as part of his crew at night. This was back in the 1970s before Cameron became a big Hollywood director when he was actually just a production designer at the time. Cameron called Paxton “a great human” during an interview with ‘Vanity Fair.’


Paxton will be sadly missed by friends and family and everyone who watched him on TV and in movies. 

Is it still #OscarsSoWhite?

Oscars So White
Oscars So White

The Academy Awards are tonight February 26th. Last year was infamous for the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite after the lack of diversity in the nominations. It is worth noting that there is more diversity represented among the nominees this year.

Consider, the film Loving. This is a film about a black woman who married a white man and successfully defeated Virginia's ban on interracial marriage through a famed Supreme Court ruling. The actress Ruth Negga got a nomination for her portrayal of Mildred Loving.

Consider, the film Hidden Figures.  This is a film that dares to show African American women in a non-stereotypical light. The media and BET especially usually portrays African American women as catty Real Housewives or as the plump spunky type like Queen Latifah. This film goes in the opposite direction by putting real women who dared to pursue their own careers in rocket science on a pedestal rather than Real Housewives clawing each other to a bloody pulp over a spilled drink.

The real drama on Oscar night will be between Moonlight and La La Land. Moonlight is a hard hitting coming of age film set in Miami. It deals with family, the criminal justice system, and urban poverty. The movie critic from Variety called it: "A socially conscious work of art as essential as it is insightful." La La Land is a musical. It is fun but Moonlight is the harder hitting film. We shall see who wins and whether more diverse voices get their golden Oscar.


Pioneers Issa Rae and Maxwell are in the news

Issa Rae
Issa Rae

Issa Rae is not your traditional Hollywood star from celluloid. It seems appropriate that in this age of non-traditional media and disruption that a star was born from the internet. Rae came from YouTube. 

She had a series on YouTube entitled “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl”. This followed J the “black and awkward” main heroine through different love interests, work situations and social interactions. 

Issa’s series went viral. She got over a quarter of a million subscribers. Is it really any surprise that an innovative network like HBO sought out a fellow innovator like Issa Rae

HBO has given the world innovative shows like Curb your enthusiasm, The Wire, Deadwood, Game of Thrones and The Sopranos. Now they are behind Issa Rae with her critically acclaimed show “Insecure”. It follows the African American experience in LA through funny situations but deals with the broader theme  that black people can’t “escape being black” and sometimes have to deal with uncomfortable situations.

Singer Maxwell inspired Twitter controversy over recent comments. Maxwell tweeted #blackblueredwhitebeigehistory. This was a nod to the all lives matter side. Some supporters of the black lives matter movement took offense that Maxwell did this especially during black history month. 


Both are in the news for different reasons!

Fat Trel Baby Mother - Locked Up, Martel Reeves Arrested 2017

A few years back, Fat Trel's baby mother, Chrissy went on a Twitter rant, airing out the DMV rapper.  Chrissy was allegedly upset after breaking up with the Maybach Music artist.  She posted tweets revealing that Blac Chyna and Trel hooked up while Chyna was in a relationship with Tyga.  Chrissy claims that Chyna and Tyga's son, King, was taking a nap while her and Trel hooked up.


In 2016, Fat Trel was arrested multiple times.  In March 2016, he was arrested for using fake bills at Live!

He's currently locked up in D.C.'s Correctional Treatment Facility.  In the video above, the rapper explains that he'll be home soon.  He has a jury trial scheduled for March 7, 2017.  We hope he beats the charges so he can focus on creating new music.

Fat Trel has been through it all.  He was homeless before becoming a rapper.  If he practices patience, he could become a respected artist like fellow DMV MMG rapper, Wale.

Ronnie turns 50 on November 17 and this will be the New Edition member's first child.  His wife, Shamari Fears-DeVoe recently celebrated her 37th birthday.  This year, the couple will celebrate their 11th wedding anniversary.  Many New Edition fans didn't even know Ronnie and Shamari were married.


Ronnie posted the image below via Instagram.  Shamari's beautiful baby bump is already starting to show.  Ronnie was one of the three members of New Edition that didn't have kids.  Ricky Bell and Johnny Gill don't have any children while Bobby Brown, Michael Bivins and Ralph Tresvant have kids.

Here's the original Instagram post:

Ronnie has two brothers, Robert and Roland.  The talented singer also has two stepsisters.  Ronnie's siblings will soon have a new niece or nephew.

Ronnie DeVoe Mother

Ronnie's mother, Florence E. DeVoe, was played by La La Anthony, the wife of NBA star, Carmelo Anthony.  In the mini-series, Flo was seen calling out the other mothers for firing her brother, Brooke Payne.  If it wasn't for Brooke, Ronnie wouldn't have been a member of New Edition.

New Edition originally included singers, Travis Pettus and Corey Rackley.  Ronnie ended up replacing Travis.  Uncle Brooke is the best uncle in the world! In one of the most emotional scenes of The New Edition Story Ronnie calls Bobby Brown out for making Payne have a heart attack.



Tammy Brawner Bio - Darius McCrary Wife

Tammy Brawner is the wife of Darius McCrary.  She was recently granted a restraining order against the former Family Matters actor.  McCrary appeared in the first season of Star.  He played Otis Leecan in the Fox series created by Lee Daniels.  Tammy graduated from the Dominican University of California.

Brawner earned a graduate degree from Dominican's business school and played on the university's women's basketball team.  Brawner is a very good basketball player and in 2012 she became a member of the Harlem Globetrotters.  In 2015, Tammy sued the Globetrotters.  She claims they fired her for getting pregnant.

Last year, Tammy and Darius welcomed their beautiful daughter, Zoey.  Brawner claims that Darius abused her and Zoey.  She says that McCrary held Zoey over a pot of boiling hot water.  Lee Daniels knows how to pick the villains for his television shows.

As Otis in Star, Darius plays an abusive husband.  He abuses his adopted daughter, Simone in the series.  Daniels chose actor, Terrence Howard to play the villain in Empire.  As Lucious Lyon, Howard mentally abuses his entire family.  Howard has faced multiple allegations of violence against his ex-wives.  Luckily, Cookie don't play that!

We're hoping Tammy's claims aren't true.  We all fell in love with Darius when he played Edward "Eddie" Winslow in Family Matters.
