Miami Heat player Dwayne Wade and actress Gabrielle Union have finally said “I Do”. The couple have been together for about 5 years and have dealt with the ups and downs relationships bring. People just knew that Union would leave him after he had a child while they were on a “break”. The two put those haters to bed yesterday by having a $5 Million wedding. The couple’s wedding took place at Chateau Artisan Miami, a castle that sits over a private lake and takes up about 14 acres of land. There were about 200 guests which of course was celebrity filled. Guests such as Kevin Hart, Carmelo and La La Anthony, LeBron James, Stephen Hill (BET) and many more. All female guests were asked to wear white to match the bride and the male guests would wear back to match the groom.
The Wades wanted to make sure the public did not get any information before they were ready to reveal it. They had all of their guests sign confidentiality agreements, and they had to leave their phones and cameras at the door. However, pics still were leaked. See below. Continue reading
I still consider her Joan from girlfriends but she has always been funny to me. Tracee Ellis Ross has a few videos up on her YouTube channel where she is going over rap songs trying to decipher what the lyrics really mean. She raps over Tyga’s song “Pass Me The Hookah” which features who she calls “a young fella named Young Thug” lol. Watch the video below. She is hilarious by the way.
Compton rapper The Game has brought together quite a few big names in the music industry to make a song inspired by the fatal shooting of teenager Mike Brown that took place in Ferguson, MO. Game sat down with Rolling Stone Magazine expressing he wanted to bring awareness to the situation because it hit close to home. Police brutality is going on everyday in every country and people don’t realize it until it is publicized on the news. In some cases, they never get attention.
In the interview Game says:
“The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this. I am a black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them. This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”
On how he got everyone to collaborate “I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts. We care and are inclined to take a positive approach to resolving an issue that has existed since the beginning of mankind and that is racism and hatred towards one another as human beings.”
Today for the Artist Spotlight segment we are featuring Dusty McFly. This Detroit rapper has been making moves to get the world to know who exactly Dusty McFly is. He has been apart of tours with major artists such as the Trey Songz Anticipation tour, Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers tour and he also performed a set with Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy.
His lyrical ability has gotten accolade from XXL, Vibe, and Gobal Grind magazines just to name a few. In an interview with XXL magazine he stated “My goal in hip-hop is to become the voice of the original D boys that took nothing and turned it into something. I want to be the voice for those that didn’t get a fair shake that are either deceased or encaged. Detroit has a real story that needs to be told. Detroit breeds strong, hard working, characters. We’re currently under represented nationally. We are making progress but it’s my goal to represent our street struggle with pride and integrity to the world. I want to put the real D on the map and tell the untold story. If you listen close enough to my B&B series and decode the lyrics the story will unfold before your eyes.”
While the streets are anticipating the new album from Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy, he was arrested in Irvine, CA. On his way to a performance, Jeezy’s tour bus was pulled over and searched. Police found an assault rifle which they believe was the weapon responsible for shooting and killing a man during Wiz Khalifa’s performance last Friday. Both Wiz and Jeezy are on tour together. Jeezy was taken into custody along with his entourage and is currently being held on a 1 million dollar bond. We will keep you updated on this story when more details become available.
Can she live? Little Blue is just being a two year old and the public has ridiculed her in so many ways from calling her the devil’s spawn to calling her a nappy head. Now BET has thrown shots at baby Blue and used Karreuche Tran as the the bullet. While guest hosting on 106th & Park, Karrueche held a “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought At The VMAs” and one of the comments were “I really did wake up like this because my parents didn’t comb my hair”. Beyonce stans tore into Karrueche saying the comment was distasteful. I have to agree.
Ms. Tran took to her twitter to clear up the incident saying she was only reading from a teleprompter and did not get to review the changes before going on camera. Read what her rep had to say below.
Big Sean and his mom started the Sean Anderson Foundation to give back to the youth of his and my hometown of Detroit. On August 21, Sean and his mom Myra Anderson held their 2nd annual Back 2 School Giveback for Detroit Public Schools. He spoke to the students saying, “I grew up in this city, just like all of you, we have something special about us that no one else has: We were built tough. We’re strong. We’re resilient, and we can overcome anything. So when you grow up to achieve your dream careers, and begin to travel around the world, proudly represent Detroit.”
He also partnered with Office Depot and donated 3,500 backpacks loaded with school supplies to Detroit Public Schools and local nonprofit organizations. That is awesome, you have some celebrities that don’t even visit their hometowns.
I have siblings and other family members that are attend DPS and I appreciate him looking out for our youth!
