True (and likely even casual) Usher Raymond fans would probably agree that his talent is complemented by a care for humanity. From mentoring to speaking on the plight of his people, we've seen Usher in there doing what he could. Here he is now, along with Nas & Bibi Bourelly, letting his art ("Chains") speak on social injustice today. As Nina Simone said, "It's an artist's duty to reflect the times in which we live."
Yes, this is the documentary that folks are tying to Peyton Manning. And while the Super Bowl bound quarterback is a key figure in the way all this came about, this work should be allowed to stand on its own as an impactful, informative piece by Al Jazeera. Huge insights into the how and why of high-performing, high-achieving, highly-paid athletes even go there with these chemical enhancements. When is good enough good enough? For them, NEVER. That realization alone should let you begin to understand how far these athletes would go to get the stuff; driving how far/deep into the "Dark Side" folks will go to get the stuff to them.
Al Jazeera investigates the secretive world of doping in sports and raises questions about whether medical professionals are linked to some of the greatest sports heroes.

So, we posted the "Where To Invade Next" trailer already. But check out this one on the coming soon Michael Moore film...all about Italy. Fair warning: At first, if you are in America with us, you are gonna hate a bit. But then maybe, just maybe, you will think, "Hey, they're onto something over there."
Cool clip of the Golden State Warriors' White House trip. Know who else is a trip? President Obama. He welcomed the NBA champs to the house, as is custom, and gave 'em a good ribbing. Steph will most def be working on his jump shot form thanks to The President's wisecracks. Haaa!

(AllHipHop News) After the huge success of the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, other legendary rap stars' names have been discussed as possibly being future subjects of a biographical movie.

There is a reason Big Kap likely started off "Bia Bia" for Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz. He's always been a titan of Hip-Hop that used to play The Tunnel in New York City. The Tunnel was "crunk" before Crunk. Nevertheles, Lil Jon and The Eastside Boyz crafted a classic indeed and it laid down a platform for what present-day Hip-Hop sounds like nowadays. This raucious party was taken to the next level with the addition of Too Short, Ludacris and Chyna Whyte. Enjoy "Bia Bia. Circa 2000.

Not only with the song but with the video, Greggo wanted to take his audience to this place of No Where, a place that is familiar to and relatable to everyone in someway. Everyone has experienced a time of feeling or being alone. Sennia was originally set out to be apart of the Official Video but it came down to everyone making the decision that the story would play off better with just Greggo in the video telling his story. Which is the primary direction Greggo's been going with his music for years, giving away apart of him. If you're alone at this current time, or feeling alone there's aways better days, there's sacrifices that has to be made in life and lose that will be taken but there's always a win that will be gained. That time where we will come out of that place of No Where has to come if we just keep moving and advancing our way out. The intention was to be as clear as possible in telling this story with the Official Video to No Where".

"Miles Ahead" is a wildly entertaining and moving exploration of one of 20th century music's creative geniuses, Miles Davis, featuring a career defining performance by Oscar nominee Don Cheadle in the title role. Working from a script he co-wrote with Steven Baigelman, Cheadle's bravura directorial debut is not a conventional bio-pic but rather a unique, no-holds barred portrait of a singular artist in crisis.
