Ice-T and his business partner Jorge Hinojosa teamed up to producer and direct a documentary about the life of pimp turned author Iceberg Slim.
I got a chance to see this film in its entirety at the Atlanta Film Festival a couple of months ago. I can tell you that that trailer for the film does it's job by making the movie look enthralling and entertaining, but it is a tab bit misleading. The film doesn't glorify pimping at all. In fact it takes you to a darker place than any of Slim's books. It shows the impact the game had on his mind and family. I don't want to spoil any of it for you, but know that it is worth checking out if you want an honest account of what "the game" is really like after the furs and rings are gone ...READ MORE

Talk about Black Hippy (re: the video treatment for this). Perfect guest Kendrick Lamar comes through to deliver a 'gunshot gunshot' on this Nitty Scott, MC single "Flower Child" (produced by Paul Boogie). This is Nitty's official music video fully funded by a Kickstarter campaign. That's how you do it: Support Indie Hip-Hop! Respect to those investors. Respect to Kendrick (though notably absent from the visuals) for his contribution. Respect to director Anthony Sylvester, LPZ Media and cinematographer Anthony DeRose ...READ MORE

"You're not more ethnic if you're darker..." - Taken from OWN's 'Dark Girls' Series Premiere
Does it take a White man to tell Black folk what we should have been saying to each other for decades? Perhaps so.
'In Dark Girls, Hip-Hop author and journalist Soren Baker, a white man who's married to an African-American woman, describes his early attraction to women of all races-and shares his father's reaction. Plus, another man in an interracial relationship discusses his wife's skin tone.'
'Dark Girls' premieres this Sunday, June 23, on OWN, at 10/9 PM CST. This ought to be good. Oprah might just have as many fellas watching this show on her network.

It's been a busy time for the reigning best DJ in Ghana. He scooped 3 awards at the Maiden Ghana DJ awards early this year. He recently finished a stint as a Woodin Ambassador. He is a brand ambassador for Smirnoff. Just two weeks ago, he was named with Lydia Forson as Social Media Ambassadors for DStv. Clearly, his hit radio programmes on Joy and Hitz FM and his close to 60,000 likes on Facebook and 36,000 and growing Twitter followers have made him a brand name and an influential entertainer who has the ears of the youth and businesses are taking notice.
Additionally, this DJ who is the host of the Open House Party on Joy FM has rocked the Big Brother House a few times in the past also made news recently with nominations in three categories for the recently postponed African Global DJ Awards- Best Western African DJ, Best Radio DJ and African DJ of the Year.
While MC's for the Ghana Music Awards are changed, it's impossible to think of another DJ taking over his slot on the an ...READ MORE
