IFWT Exclusive: Tray Chaney Talks Life After ‘The Wire,’ Killing Wallace, Groupies, His Relationship With Mack Wilds & More

Diehard fans of HBO’s original hit series The Wire are overjoyed at the news that the show will be making a comeback to our TV screens just one day after Christmas on December 26th, 2014. The Baltimore-based show has been remastered in HD and will be airing in its entirety, and it will also be available for purchase via iTunes, Google Play, Xbox Video and Vadu come Monday, January 5th–making for the best holiday present ever! I had the pleasure of chopping it up with Tray Chaney who played Malik ‘Poot’ Carr on The Wire. Tray opened up about what life after The Wire has been like for him, how he landed the role as Poot, the impact the show had on pop culture, his relationship with Mack Wilds (who also starred on the show), some of the craziest groupie stories he’s encountered, fatherhood, his music career and much, much more.

IFWT Exclusive: The FULL Story Of What Happened Between Drake & Diddy That Night!

If you’ve been living under a rock, then you may not know that this past Sunday, Drake and Diddy got into quite a scuffle at Miami nightclub, LIV. As the week has gone on, details about the situation have trickled out from various news sources, and today, IFWT has even more exclusive details from TWO people on the scene. Let’s recap what has been confirmed thus far first: 1. The fight was NOT over Cassie, but rather Drake’s song, “0-100.” 2. Diddy was pissed that Drake just took the beat and ran with it, despite the fact it was given to them by its producer, Boi-1da, for them BOTH to be on. 3. Drake didn’t want to wait around for Diddy any longer, who was “sitting on” the song, so that’s when he recorded the now Grammy-nominated “0-100” and put it out. 4. Diddy has been pissed about this for MONTHS, even throwing shots toward Drake to an entire club back in June, but the video flew under the radar. 5. Sunday at LIV was the first time the guys have seen each other since Drake put the song out. 6. Drake was hospitalized for a dislocated shoulder following the fight. Now, as we mentioned, IFWT spoke with 2 sources on the scene, and we have more details for you below!

Funk Flex Teams With Simon & Schuster and Karen Hunter To Release Book About The Notorious B.I.G.

Legendary DJ Funk Flex has teamed with publishing giant Simon & Schuster and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Karen Hunter to release a book of untold stories about the late Notorious B.I.G. An instrumental part of Biggie’s early success, Funk Flex actually gave Biggie his very first major interview on Hot 97 back in June of 1994, which you can listen to here. “The song “Who Shot Ya” was originally an intro for Mary J. Blige’s album,” Flex reveals in an excerpt from the book. “Uptown/MCA said it was too hard. The song in its original form had a verse from Big, Keith Murray and LL Cool J, though LL never did his verse. The song still exists!” In another excerpt, Flex reveals how Biggie and Nas met, per Lil Cease:
