Kanye West: White Media Took Down Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Michael Jackson

Screen Shot 2020 09 16 at 11.53.50 AM

Kanye West continued his Twitter rant today after a tumultuous social media weekend, demanding an apology from J. Cole, Drake, and Kendrick and even comparing himself to famed slavery abolitionist Harriet Ross Tubman.

In today’s continuum, Ye insists that white media corporations set agendas to take down Black male celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Bill Cosby. The cultural icon also suggested that a Black-owned media company would and could never take down a white celebrity in the same fashion.

Yeezy continued on in this morning’s rant about artists owning their masters, adding his daughter will “do nothing but put emojis up for the rest of her life” because he owns his masters and his children will inherit them.

Eve Reveals She Was ‘Devastated’ After Dr. Dre Dropped Her for Eminem

Eve Reveals She Was Devastated After Dr. Dre Dropped Her for Eminem

The Ruff Ryders Chronicles is giving Hip Hop fans a behind-the-scenes view at one of the Hip-Hop’s most underrated rap groups, including the come up of their First Lady, Eve.

The “Who’s That Girl” rapper was a former stripper in Philadelphia and was blessed with a chance to fly to Los Angeles to record a demo, and the tape ended up in Dr. Dre’s radar, and the rest is history.

Eve inked a deal with the Aftermath Records but apparently the rapptress’ working relationship with the West Coast legend came to an abrupt end with no warning. “I would literally show up to studio sessions that I wasn’t supposed to be at where I knew Dre was gonna be and be like, ‘So, when am I recording? When are you gonna put me in a song? What’s going on?’ I think he got sick of that and then I got dropped eight months later… I was devastated.”

Eve went back to her mother’s home disappointed but what she didn’t know was that her manager was handling a deal with Ruff Ryders. Everything worked out and the connection with the New York Group ended up lighting up Eve’s career on fire, eventually leading the rapper to win her first Grammy Award, which marked the first Grammy for the group.

Can you imagine the Ruff Ryders without the pitbull in a skirt? We surely cant.

[WATCH] Tekashi 6ix9ine Sits Down For First Interview With FOX 5 News’ Lisa Evers

Screen Shot 2020 09 10 at 2.35.06 AM

If the streets, don’t want to talk to you, you can almost always cross over.

After getting turned down by Philly legend Gillie Da King, controversial Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine decided that it was time to turn to prime time news to tell the story everyone wants to hear.

In his very first interview with the press since his release from prison on federal racketeering, drug and gun charges, 6ix9ine sits down with FOX 5 news’ own Lisa Evers to discuss everything from his highly publicized fed case to his new album Tattletales, which was just released September 4.

6ix9ine, whose real name is Damiel Hernandez, talked about why he snitched on his former cohorts, the Nine Trey Blood gang, what life was like while in prison and how difficult it was to deal with the pressure of public opinion. “The pressure is so strong, that mentally, I think people would’ve attempted suicide because at a point in jail, I thought about it”, said 6ix9ine.

See the interview below.

TV ONE Features Tyrese On The Next Episode Of The Hit Series “Uncensored”

Screen Shot 2020 09 09 at 2.53.19 AM

TV One’s edgy docu-series Uncensored, which explores the private lives of some of today’s most notable personalities, highlights singer and actor Tyrese this Sunday, September 13 at 10 P.M. ET/9C followed by an encore presentation at 11 P.M. ET/10C

The episode will re-air on Wednesday, Sept 16 at 10 PM/9C. On this episode, Tyrese opens up about his marriage, the colorism he faced while growing up, and how the late director John Singleton changed his life when he cast him in the iconic film Baby Boy.  

Tyrese began his career at the age of 14, performing in local talent shows around his home in Los Angeles’ Watts section. His big break came when he starred in a commercial for Coca-Cola, followed shortly in 1998 by his self-titled debut album for RCA. He continues to flourish in the acting realm with his next project being the newest installment of the ever-popular Fast and Furious franchise, FF9, debuting in 2021.

In his episode of Uncensored, Tyrese gets candid about experiencing colorism, growing up in the hood, and his journey to self-confidence. The auto-biographical series delves into the lives of luminaries as they reveal secrets to their success, obstacles they faced and how they’ve navigated the perils of social media that helped – and sometimes haunted – their careers. 

This season continues with rapper/TV personality Eve, producer/TV personality Yandy Smith-Harris, actor Omari Hardwick, actress/singer Jenifer Lewis and legendary actress/choreographer/director Debbie Allen.

Each week viewers get a glimpse into the lives of high-profile celebrities as they reveal their stories — in their own words. “We’re excited for the return and talent line-up for this season of Uncensored, which is one of the network’s top-rated series,” said Executive Producer in Charge of Production Jason Ryan. “Viewers will get to experience the intimate revelations of some of their favorite celebrities.” 

TV One will also launch a weekly digital series, Bossip Uncensored, featuring informative and humorous commentary from Danielle Canada and Janeé Bolden, two voices behind the popular Bossip.com headlines. Each Thursday, the hosts discuss the featured celebrity and provide sneak previews of the upcoming Uncensored episode.
