This past Sunday, Kanye West spoke at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church and opened up about his relationship with God.

During a candid conversation with Joel, Kanye revealed the steps that led up to his enlightenment and the 42 year old rapper even called his former self cocky.

"God's been calling me for a long time and the devils been distracting me for a long time." West revealed in front of his wife Kim Kardashian West and daughter North West.

"When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me, and I remember sitting in the hospital at UCLA after having a mental breakdown and there's documentation of me drawing a church and wanting to start a church in the middle of Calabasas," he added, speaking about his 2016 hospitalization during his Saint Pablo tour.

In recent months West has proclaimed his faith and standing next to Osteen he shared despite "all of that arrogance and cockiness that y'all have seen from me" in the past, "God is now using him."

"Because every time I stand up, I feel that I'm standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying, 'I'm here in service to God and no weapon formed against me shall prosper,' " he said.

"Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him," he added, with a smile on his face.

Check out his full speech below.

BuzzFeedNews reported a story of a Pennsylvania man who was charged for murdering his disabled girlfriend and then impersonating her by conversing with her family and friends through text messages and social media.

According to a police statement, John Matthew Chapman, 39, was charged with kidnapping, obstructing the administration of law, and criminal use of a communication facility in connection with the disappearance of his girlfriend, Jaime Rae Feden, 33.

The police report says that Chapman confessed to luring Feden to Las Vegas by inviting her on vacation with "potential of acquiring residence." Chapman killed the innocent woman in Nevada by zip-tying her hands and feet to a signpost in the desert before duct-taping her nose and mouth which suffocated her.

Feden was only four feet tall and her family reported her missing after two months. Police performed a wellness check that same day and found her phone and a backpack with plastic zip ties and duct tape inside, according to CBS 2.

"She was a nice girl, very low-key, not hyper or anything," one of Feden's neighbors told CBS 2. "She just wanted to be friendly with people." The criminal complaint identifies Chapman as Feden's boyfriend and says she had a "tumultuous" relationship with him. "A couple of other neighbors in our building said they heard arguing at different times, but I never experienced it first hand but he was a little odd," neighbor Lane Clark said.

Police say Feden was diagnosed with Vater syndrome, a condition that limits her mental capacity, according to Wyoming News Now TV.

If you think the story is already sick, to Chapman is a married man! His Facebook bio reads, "I'm a 39-year-old single guy from Pennsylvania. I've lived here most of my life. I'm always trying to meet new and interesting people." His wife, Maureen Chapmanm, allegedly found out about her husband's double life on Friday morning.

Black News Channel (BNC) to Launch in January 2020


Black History Month was a hot mess this year, but it looks like there's better planning for next year.

Former Oklahoma Congressman J.C. Watts and TV executive Bob Brillante joined forces to launch the Black News Channel (BNC). It is dedicated to broadcasting news only related to the black community.

The network was reportedly supposed to launch this year, but it was pushed to 2020 to monetize from the new platform services. "Our network is about providing intelligent programming that is informative, educational, inspiring and empowering to our African American audience, so they are participants in a national conversation," J.C. Watts said in a statement. "If we have the opportunity to include the largest African American audience possible from day one, then that should be our top priority."

BNC inked a deal with Comcast, Charter and Dish Network, and will air in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York. Former CNN anchor Fred Hickman, and Emmy Award-winning journalists Laverne McGee as well as Anthony Amey are set to the head news anchors for the network.

The Black News Network launches on January 6th.

Social media has been rallying for Rodney Reed who was sentenced to 21 years on death row for a murder that someone else confessed to. Kim Kardashian was one of the many people advocating for Georgia to reopen this man's case who she believes is innocent.

The reality star wasn't only campaigning online, but she went to meet Reed face-to-face. Ironically she was with him when he learned his execution was suspended indefinitely.

"Today, I had the honor of meeting #RodneyReed in person and the privilege of sitting with him when he got the news that the highest court in Texas had issued a stay of execution and remanded the case back to the trial court for further consideration," she wrote on Twitter.

"Words cannot describe the relief and hope that swept over the room in that moment," she continued. "That hope had been building over the last few weeks around Rodney's case. We have seen Democrats and Republicans come together. We have seen grassroots activists and lawmakers link arms."

The Court of Criminal Appeals in Texas decided to pull the plug on the execution because there has been new evidence in the case, including witnesses who came forward in recent months.

Today, I had the honor of meeting #RodneyReed in person and the privilege of sitting with him when he got the news that the highest court in Texas had issued a stay of execution and remanded the case back to the trial court for further consideration.

Words cannot describe the relief and hope that swept over the room in that moment. That hope had been building over the last few weeks around Rodney's case. We have seen Democrats and Republicans come together. We have seen grassroots activists and lawmakers link arms.

— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) November 16, 2019

We have heard people all around the globe speak up. And all because of a deep belief that every man or woman accused of a crime - especially one punishable by death - deserves the chance to have all available evidence considered.

— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) November 16, 2019

So grateful for the commitment and passion of everyone who voiced their support, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles for their recommendation to issue a 120 day reprieve, and the courts for issuing a stay!

If you grew up watching Spongebob Squarepants then you know that Squidward is a central character but we don't know too much about him. His grumpy personality serves as an everyday mood when we're on our way to work.

A day after Disney+ launched, Netflix announced its $200 million partnership with Netflix. Details of their deal are slowly making its way to the Internet, and one of the most notable things is a spinoff centered around Squidward.

Hypebeast reports that the spinoff would focus on the octupus' music career. That's all we know for now but be sure to check back to Two Bees Entertainment because we'll keep you updated.

Regardless of the outcome of the Squidward spinoff, Nickelodeon fans will definitely tune in to what the network and streaming service has up their sleeves.

Are you looking forward to the new show?

On this date in 1985, James Todd Smith better known as LL Cool J dropped his first full-length LP on Def Jam Records. Primarily produced by Rick Rubin besides "I Need A Beat", which was produced by DJ Jazzy Jay, Radio was a pivotal LP for not only LL and Def Jam, but for an evolving Hip Hop landscape that had just seen the rapid decline of b-boying and jams in the park. This was also the era in which the crack epidemic hit the streets and all of the major players used LL Cool J as the prototype image of how a hustler is supposed to look.

Songs like "I Can't Live Without My Radio" and "Rock The Bells" dominated airwaves as well as influenced other artists of that time period with his braggadocios content and virtually forceful delivery. The song that actually got Cool J the deal with Def Jam, "I Need A Beat", was written and recorded when LL was only 15 years old, making him not only Def Jam's first solo artist but also their youngest.

Salute to Cool J, Rick Rubin, Russell Simmons, Jazzy Jay and everyone at Def Jam from that era that helped put together this timeless classic!

Today is Omega Psi Phi's 108th Founders Day.

Founders Day marks the formal organizing of the fraternity, started on the campus of Howard University in 1911. On that day, students Frank Coleman, Oscar J. Cooper and Edgar A. Love and their faculty adviser Ernest E. Just came together to changed the world. They believed that it was important for men to unite through the binds of brotherhood, and foster a community of excellence that would be a shining illumination to their race. Under the cardinal principles of manhood, scholarship, perseverance and uplift, The Founders committed themselves to a) protect the sanctity of home and b) the chastity of women.

Over the last century, the fraternity has been decorated with some of the most celebrated Black men in history.  Benjamin Mays, Langston Hughes, Shaq, Stephen A. Smith, Steve Harvey, AJ Calloway, Joe Torey, Terrance J, Michael Jordan and so many of the guys that are on your campus... not necessarily worried about the chastity of women.

So... that got us to thinking... What are the top 5 ways that the Bruhs have solidified themselves as the most Hip-Hop frat. Let us know what you think.

5. Que Dawgs Definitely Be Rocking The Camouflage Fatigues and Gold Boots
While their official colors are Royal Purple Old Gold, it is almost a guarantee that when these men pop owt, they may have some greenish colored camouflage fatigues and some worn out gold boots.

This fashion choice is definitely rugged, separating them from some of the more "pretty looking" fraternities. Like many in the Hip-Hop world, the decision to incorporate the attire into their wardrobe serves as a double purpose... first to just look fly (defining fashion on their own terms and with their own ethics) and secondly to operate from a space of code-switching that is necessary to keep people always on their toes, further allowing these brilliant brothers to almost always say something prolific, while they are looking like they are about to go to war. Once you understand the yard uniform, you will understand the difference between the an Omega Man and a Que Dawg.  Rappers also have this yard uniform, but they are rocking it in their respective lanes. Looking like a 90s video come to life, Ques are Hip-Hop because they actually look the part.

4. They All Have Alternative Identities
There most certainly is a difference between JAY-Z and Shawn Carter, Bashar Jackson and Pop Smoke, Jada Kiss and Jason Terrance Phillips. As mentioned before, there is a double identity going on with Ques. Now... your pastor... your uncle... your teacher... family doctor... and family lawyer are Omega Men. Your dad is an Omega Man.... However, during their HBCU they will Jekyll and Hyde your behind in a quick minute. One probably is working to change the dynamics of race in your community and the other might lick you... like in your face. Both Hip-Hop and the brothers of this fraternity share these double identities.

Not in a schizophrenic way, both groups understand that everything has a time and a place- and all behavior is not appropriate at all times. So next time you are wondering if your pastor is really, really, really a Que... think first Clark Kent and Superman and then think of someone who seems to be all over the place - Like Fat Joe or N.O.R.E. or Nas and think about how for the most part they go home to their wives and girls to live a very regular life- and then go back to looking at your pastor. While we are sure he is a great man... sneak and play "Atomic Dog" during the coffee hour after bible study and watch him transform.

3. Their Hop Could Be A Popular Dance Craze
The Que Dawgs are  known to break a sweat when they come to a party.  In fact, it does not even have to be a party. They are the party.

Just think about any tailgate, probate, baby shower, cook out, rent party... all you have to do is put on their jam... and you know what that is... and they are out there on the floor killing it. A smooth side step and bop... some hooks in the air... a glazed over look in their eyes and then there they go... they are out there hoping and killing it. Everyone really wants to join in (we advise you not to) as they take over the floor.

Similar to when Rock Steady gets busy on the floor break dancing, your little cousin does whatever dance Teyana Taylor said was popping in Harlem or the "Nae Nae," their moves are infectious and learning them is just as much a part of their identity as service is.

2. They Give Back To The Community and Started As A Way to Reclaim Communal Identity
For poor kids in the South Bronx, creating Hip-Hop was imperative for the salvation of a neighborhood. Literally the music saved them from gang war and poverty. The early DJs and rappers gave back to the communities that they came out of and created a spirit of intentional charity and self-declaration for anyone that wanted to be down.  Kool Herc's jams, celebrity basketball games to rase money for charity, turkey give backs and the many foundations that so many rappers have are all to show the communities where they are from that they have not forgotten them. They also just want people to see behind the scowl on their faces and the barking of their raps. That also can be said for the Bruhs.

When the Omega men decided to start their own fraternity, redefining what the world thought about Black men was at the forefront of their mindset. Serving their community was key for The Four Founders.  This is just another way that Hip-Hop connects with the Purple and Gold giants- The two have a belief system that transcends how they look.

1. George Clinton is Like a Gawd to Them
Either community... just put on the damn song.

Saturday (Nov. 16) the NFL hosted workout for Colin Kaepernick was set to go down at the Falcons practice facility but was called off by the quarterback.

Representation for Kaepernick states he was misled in detail regarding receivers, waivers, and knowledge of personnel for each team that would be in attendance. Each of those statements received a rebuttal from the NFL in a league issued statement.

Statement from the NFL on the Kaepernick workout fiasco today. Kaepernick wanted to shoot a Nike commercial. Kinda lame pic.twitter.com/7SwNBoNUxN

- Ben Volin (@BenVolin) November 16, 2019

Instead of appearing at the Falcons facility, Kaepernick hosted a workout just over an hour away at a high school field. The attendance of teams dropped from the 25 that was reportedly attending the NFL workout to eight. After the drills, Kaepernick spoke to a media scrum calling out the league, commissioner Roger Goodell and each team's owner.

UPDATE: Kaep addresses the media. pic.twitter.com/fGuILQnYMJ

- The Undefeated (@TheUndefeated) November 16, 2019

Earlier in the week, a report detailed Jay-Z assisted in making the opportunity with the NFL happen. Now, a source close to the situation says JAY-Z feels disappointed with Colin's actions and believes he turned a legitimate workout into a publicity stunt.

With the workout complete and Sunday football already kicked off, we now must wait to see if Kaepernick's self-hosted showcase will be enough to have him on a roster before the end of the season.

Hitmaka just released the video for 'Thotbox' (remix) featuring Young M.A., Chinese Kitty, DreamDoll, Dreezy and Mulatto.

Formerly known as Yungberg, Hitmaka has had one heck of year producing hit after hit proving he's a producer with a force to be reckoned. Hitmaka's catalog as a producer has earned over 28 million digital sales and 5 billion streams, stemming from credits with artists like French Montana ("No Stylist" featuring Drake), Chris Brown ("Party" featuring Usher and Gucci Mane), Big Sean ("Bounce Back"), and 2 Chainz ("Rule the World" featuring Ariana Grande). Now back with the remix to his song 'Thotbox', he brought the ladies in rap together for an anthem-type track.

Mulatto from Jermane Dupri's show The Rap Game proves she's all grown up with her seductive bars and clothing. Young M.A, brings her Brooklyn style and the flow we've come to love. Chinese Kitty breaks out her sex kitten flow with straight bars and confidence that makes her a fan favorite. Dreezy can go to bar for bar with the most successful rapper to date and DreamDoll switches up the flow and cadence to the piano keys leaving the song.

Set to be a classic due to the surefire lineup of dope females it's safe to say that female camaraderie is back on the rise.

Check out the video below.

Who remember's this classic ladies anthems. Let's give it up for the ladiesssss!

Well, alright, Big Sean. In case you missed it, the Detroit rapper's ex-maybe-still-bae, Jhene Aiko, released a new song titled "None Of Your Concern" and brought him on as a feature.

What caught everybody off guard was Big Sean's verse where he seemingly details provides the details of their intimacy, most notably, how many times he has made the singer hit the highest moment of sex:

But every time I lay down I think about you naked

And if you find my replacement, how could you

I made you cum nine times in one day

Your two lips should come in a vase, you rode my face

And just like that, Big Sean was trending. See the video and some reactions below.

You can tell Big Sean sex game is crazy when Jhene Aiko got the tattoo of him a few years ago. That's the reason why she's not letting Sean go. Big Sean also had Naya Rivera acting crazy and Ariana Grande saying Sean can still get it LMAO. pic.twitter.com/NkT5cgCYu4
