Looks like a must see. You know I was looking for that legendary James Brown footwork, I guess I will just have to wait till this drops in August.

Universal is hoping that audiences will shake their money makers at movie theaters this summer. The studio has set Tate Taylor’s James Brown movie, “Get On Up,” for release in August. The film’s first trailer arrived on Thursday, promising all the singing, dancing, screaming and crying that’s expected from traditional music biopics. Taylor, who last directed “The Help” to a Best Picture nomination, has an all-star cast in line for this one including Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Dan Aykroyd and, in the role of Brown, Chadwick Boseman. The young actor is building quite a resume of historical figures: he played Jackie Robinson in last year’s “42.” Watch the trailer for “Get On Up,” which was produced by Mick Jagger, below:

[video] Peter Rosenberg says ‘Jay Z is riding the coattails of Kanye West’

He makes his case that Jay Z has for the past few years, has been riding the coattails of Kanye West. I caunderstand his points but I don’t necessarily agree for a bunch of reasons. The fact Hov will forever be in the conversation for Greatest MC ever and though Kanye is a megastar, his name rarely if ever comes up in those debates. But without a doubt Hov has reinvented his self a bunch of times and he is smart enough to ride the wave of new trends instead of fighting them. The fact he took his former artist Young Chris’s flow and ran with that and pretty much shows how he can take something and make it his own. He himself said “you made it a hot line, I made it a hot song”.

Screen Shot 2014-03-12 at 2.53.11 AM

Dipset fans rejoice. With a bunch of new projects dropping and officially reuniting with his Dipset brethen, Cam’ron seeks to get back to being on top. With recent runway appearances rocking designer capes with his sexy wifey Juju and hints of dropping a sneaker on instagram, Cam is fast making moves back in the fashion space which he along with Jim jones, and Juelz Santana firmly put their stamp on a decade ago. With mentor Dame Dash back in the fold full time, they have joined with Karmaloop to drop Dipset USA clothing. Feels like 2002 all over again? I say until he pulls out the pink fur and Range Rover the story is not complete. Dipset, DipSet, Dipset!!

[video] Bill O’ Reilly tells Russell Simmons Beyonce makes “exploitative garbage”

Bill O’ Reilly spars with Russell Simmons over Beyonce and proclaims she makes  “exploitative garbage”. Wait to till he sees Rihanna’s ‘Pour It Up’ video, he might just have another one of his nuclear meltdowns on camera. Seriously Bill seems to be so late on these type of things, shit he should see some of the stuff Madonna did a 100 years ago and he might just have a heart attack. The ironic thing is this is the same guy who paid off a woman who accused him of sexual harassment at the workplace a number of years ago, and any time he goes on these tangents none of his guests ever bring it up. Instead of it being constructive interview about Russell’s new book ‘Success Through Stillness’, he masterfully spinned it to a conversation about Beyonce and had Russell on his heels once again. Though O’ Reilly proclaimed never to speak on his  sexual harassment suit again, I would bet a dollar to a doughnut he is still that pervert, and knows every lyric to “Partition”.

[video] The Infamous ‘Omar Epps Skirt’ Video

Based on the severe backlash he has gotten the past few days, I am going out on a limb that he won’t be pulling this stunt anymore. On the surface, let’s hope that this backlash will nip this trend in the bud, Kanye withstanding.

This colossal push to strip men of their masculinity has been popping all over pop culture the last few years and it seems like an hidden agenda has been set in motion. What is that agenda? It’s just ‘fashion’ is the sentiment provided by his childhood friend Marlon Wayans who got into a twitter war with outspoken rapper/actor Lord Jamar who took exception to his style of dress for his interview on The View.

Is this a trend you support?

Less than 20 People Show up to George Zimmerman Gun Show Autograph Signing

George Zimmerman

The fact that anyone showed up to see this coward is shocking enough, but this is America where killing an innocent teenager makes you some sort of de facto celebrity. Is this guy really devoid of any conscious at all? Does he not think that he hurts the family of Trayvon Martin every time he pulls a stunt like this? Then he mysteriously wonders why people want to see him dead.

Everytime I see A.I. a bit of sadness hits me cause I think about the fact he never got that championship and in my opinion never fully reached his potential in the NBA. With that being said it’s good to see his many accomplishments being rewarded with her Jersey being retired and interest being reignited with his sneakers.

Watch Episode 3 of “The Retro Shop” starring Shaq, Kemp, and comedian, Lil’ Duval with special guest stars, Allen Iverson & French Montana. A heated discussion blows up at the shop over old school vs. new school fashion.Some things never go out of style…
