dmx 1 1

It looks like DMX recorded an Uncensored episode for TV One before he was called home.

As the Hip Hop community continues to mourn the great loss of DMX, fans will get the opportunity to hear the legendary rapper share his own story.

YV Magazine reported that TV One confirmed the two-part Uncensored special centered around the Yonkers native at the Urban Honors press junket Wednesday afternoon.

Part one is set to air on TV One Sunday, May 16th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PST ahead of the Urban One Honors, which is set to air immediately after hosted by Erica Campbell and news anchor Roland Martin.

DMX was honored in a beautiful tribute at the Barclays Center. His close friends and family eulogized him including the whole Ruff Ryders crew, his Belly co-star, Nas, and his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons who shared a heartwarming moment with his fiancé, Desiree.

In addition to the Uncensored special, DMX was working on an upcoming album throughout the pandemic which his manager, Darrin Dee Dean, confirmed is still releasing.

“It’s sad that he’s not gonna be here, but the music…This album right here is special,” said Darrin Dean. “Like you probably never heard no music like you heard on this one that we did right now. This is probably one of his great albums. One of the best. It’s a classic, for sure.”

Snoop Dogg revealed that the late rapper recorded the project at his studio following their epic Verzuz battle, and he’s also set to be featured on it alongside Pop Smoke, The Griselda Boys, Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, and more.

DMX will continue to live through his music because that’s how Ruff Ryders roll.

Vivica Fox Questions Khloe Kardashian Amidst Tristan Thompson Cheating Rumors

Vivica A. Fox Tests Positive for COVID-19

Vivica Fox dishes on the continued Khole Kardashian and Tristan Thompson saga.

When you think the relationship took a turn for the better, new cheating allegations begin to arise. Back in 2019, Jordan Woods and the Kardashian close friendship ended after Woods was reported spending the night at Thompson’s home. Since then Tristan and Khloe have continued to co-parent their daughter, True, while figuring out their relationship status. The NBA champion appears on the latest and final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Most recently, new cheating rumors have surfaced. A woman by the name of Sydney Chase shared screenshots of Khloe coming to her as a woman to question their relations. She also explains the situation in a TikTok video.

After rumors surfaced, Vivica Fox stepped in the chat to give her opinion alongside her Cocktail Queens co-hosts.

“It’s time for Khloé to stop being a damn doormat for Tristan,” she said. “First of all, you are a Kardashian, girl. I’m sure it’s plenty of brothas lining up. They all just wanna take a trip, you know what I mean.”

One can only imagine the public scrutiny Khloe continues to endure.

Fox goes on to question if this is the type of life that the 36 year-old reality star wants to continue to live.

At this point, do you really want this kind of man to be a parental father figure to your children? The fact that he can’t even respect mama? What foundation are you on, period?

Check out other reactions to Tristan’s new cheating rumors below.

JT Speaks On Lil Uzi Vert on Respectfully Justin

Screen Shot 2021 05 01 at 10.44.26 AM

The romance between JT and Lil Uzi Vert was originally kept on the low for quite some time. These days, as the couple began to make themselves more public, the PDA on social media is getting more and more real.

Recently, JT and Yung Miami went on the Respectfully Justin show to discuss broke men and their expectations. Amid that conversation, JT began to speak on how her boo Uzi was always a good man to her.

“When I first met my man, I was still in a halfway house,” she began explaining that Uzi came to Atlanta to visit her at the halfway house.

“He had a bag full of money,” she added.

“I had a little Chanel bag and he told me to take as much as you can. I could only fit thirty thousand [dollars] and I was so mad,” Jt said. “I don’t want to keep talking because I don’t want it to seem like I’m bragging. I have a good man. I didn’t even know he was a good man. I was f*ckin’ with him for almost two years before I found out he was a good man… He bring me flowers. He remember the sh*t I say I want.”

Unfortunately, she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place.” Raheem continued to pay tribute to Dazharia, saying, “My daughter Dazharia has left us early and has been call[ed] up to fly with the angels. She was my little best friend and I wasn’t prepared in no way, to bury my child.”

He concluded, “I only wish she would have spoken to me about her stress and the thoughts of suicide. We could work thru [sic] this. I only want to hold you again my little jelly bean. Now I come home and you’re no longer gonna be there waiting for me. I have to let you fly with the angels.”

On a recent post on Twitch, controversial internet personality DJ Akademiks made some startling allegations while discussing the T.I./Tiny assault and sex abuse scandal, accusing male music executives in “Hollyweird” of sleeping with down low, male rappers.

Ak states in the video below, “There’s a couple of executives that I’ve heard are f***king the male rappers, and they’re male too.” He goes on to insinuate the truth to the rumor of a “gay mafia” in the entertainment world, adding, “I don’t want to get randomly killed.” 

Last month, Inspectah Deck of the Wu-Tang Clan made similar allegations, stating that he saw some “weird shit” going on at private Hollywood parties to which he and the Clan were invited.

“I am pleased to be working with Thinkfactory and my long-time friend and colleague Tisha Campbell on our dream project,” Arnold added. “Never before has television played a greater role in our communities, and I feel certain that connecting through our brand of positivity and laughter is sure to shine through to our forever faithful fans.”

Tisha And Tichina Have Issues is executive produced by Arnold, Campbell and Andrew Jameson of Power, while ITV America’s Thinkfactory Media will produce the show.

There is no word yet as to when the show will premiere.

Black ‘Cinderella’ Movie With Brandy & Whitney Houston Sets For Disney+

Black Cinderella Movie With Brandy Whitney Houston Sets For Disney

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella starring Brandy and Whitney Houston is officially coming to Disney+. On Thursday (Feb. 4th)! Disney announced that the musical will premiere on the streaming service “at the stroke of midnight” on Feb. 12.

While appearing on The View, Brandy also makes the announcement alongside her Cinderella co-star Whoopi Goldberg. The two stars reflected on Brandy’s groundbreaking role as the first Black princess.

“It meant everything to me because first of all, I got to work with my childhood idols, Whitney Houston, Whoopi Goldberg, Bernadette Peters,” she said. “The impact that it had on me and the lives of so many families and girls that look like me, it was just unbelievable. Looking back, I can now share this with my daughter and watch it.”

In addition to becoming a fan favorite, the musical movie was also a significant success. It earned seven Emmy nominations in 1998, winning for art direction for a variety or music program.

The film became a cult classic since it premiered on Nov. 2, 1997. More than 60 million viewers tuned into the televised movie of the live-action fairy tale adaptation. Cinderella starred Brandy as Cinderella and Houston as her fairy godmother. While featuring a diverse A-list cast, the film became a staple to many black girls growing up in the 2000s.

Castmates included Victor Garber, Bernadette Peters, Paolo Montalban, and Jason Alexander, and spawned the classic Rodgers & Hammerstein soundtrack.

“I’m so excited that ‘Cinderella’ has a home now at Disney+ and we can celebrate and share and inspire a whole new generation,” added Brandy, who also shared the advice she received from the late Houston shortly before her passing in 2012. “She told me to please promise her to always be myself, like never change for anyone,” she said.

Earlier this week, Brandy’s album b7 was nominated for Outstanding Album at the 52nd NAACP Image Awards.
