If you’ve seen The Eric Andre Show on Adult Swim by now, you know that host, Eric Andre, and his sidekick, Hannibal Buress, do everything in their power to make their celebrity guests as uncomfortable as humanly possible. This week’s episode with Flavor Flav was no different. LOL! Not only did Flav get damn near sexually assaulted, he got a nice roundhouse kick to the face at the end for good measure. What a hilarious mess! Check out the video below.
Haha just in time for Halloween! Rumors started to swirl yesterday that Chance The Rapper was actually working on a new jingle and a commerical for Kit-Kat, and the grand reveal has come sooner than later. Hit the jump for Chance’s rendition of “Give Me A Break”.
Nate Parker’s Birth of A Nation is in theaters this Friday, and Nate is currently making his media rounds to promote it. The film is based on the true story of an enslaved preacher by the name of Nat Turner, who ends up creating a violent and historic slave rebellion. The film is heavy and necessary in today’s climate, but it is being overshadowed by a rape case from Nate’s past. In college, the actor was accused of raping a young woman with his friends, and though he was later acquitted, some feel that it wasn’t legit because the acquittal was only based on the fact they’d had consensual sex before the alleged incident. To add insult to injury, the woman committed suicide in 2012.
Jay Z just signed a two-year movie and television production deal with the Weinstein Company. “I’m excited to tell stories from real-life prophets, whom through their struggles have changed the world for the better, and others whose stories are filled with fantasy and delight,” Hov said in the press release. “Harvey and David [Weinstein] are visionaries both of whom have done this time and time again. I’m already passionate about what we currently have in the pipeline and I’m looking forward to discovering others.”
Once again, 50 Cent is being sued by a man who claims he came up with the idea for Power. This has happened before with not only Power, but Empire as well. R. Byron Hord and Curtis Scoon claim that they pitched the show to 50 Cent in March of 2011, except theirs was titled Dangerous. It was about a black drug dealer attempting to turn his life around for the better, and included a Irish gangster friend and his girlfriend. Hord and Scoon are also suing Starz and parent company CBS, and are looking to get as much as $180,000 per episode.
Yung Joc had to get some money he was owed from his former booking agent, so apparently he figured he’d kill two birds with one stone and get some TV exposure out of it while he did so. The rapper appeared on Judge Faith yesterday, suing Polo 2G for $6000 for not giving him the money owed from deals, as well as for using a look-a-like to make money off of his name. Polo was also countersuing for $1000, claiming Joc failed to reward him after losing a game of Spades. Honestly, this whole thing looks fake as f*ck, but whatever. Enjoy it below.
