The World's Fastest Man Meets His Match...

New Video Snoop Lion ‘LA LA LA’ [VIDEO]...


This Halloween, Snoop Dogg makes the transformation to Snoop Lion in the video for “La La La,” the first single from his forthcoming reggae album Reincarnated. The Doggfather teamed up with renowned horror film director Eli Roth to deliver a fun, Halloween-inspired video featuring kids in costumes.
I’ve always been a fan of my neffew Eli’s work and had a vision of working with him for a minute now, For this video, I wanted to do something different—something I wasn’t able to do with my other music. This collaboration really shows how creative we can get as a 1-2 combo. He’s Dwight Howard and I’m Kobe Bryant. We feed off each other. It’s a dope video and offers my fans a first official look at Snoop Lion.” Snoop said
The video will debut tonight above the Las Vegas Strip on the world’s largest LED screen overlooking Roth’s horror maze, the Goretorium.

Jailhouse Interview: 19-Year-Old Says He Should Get [rip] Penalty Afer k!lling Texas Man...



Police said 19-year-old Justin Jones committed a string of robberies last week and then shot and k!lled 36-year-old Don Morrow in the Sherlock's Pub parking lot. Morrow was trying to help two friends who were being robbed. From behind bars, Jones admitted to the shooting and a previous robbery, but said he doesn't remember much because he said he smoked PCP before the crime spree. He said he does vaguely remember firing a gun after a brief struggle, though.

The interviewer in my opinion is condescending and I don't even know the right words. He just rubbed me the wrong way.

The Official Hurricane Sandy AKA "Frankenstorm.” In NYC...

ATTENTION: This thread initially started out lightheartedly, but sandy has proven to be the most devastating storm in American history.

Moving forward I provided you with hours of continuous updates and information. There are dozens of rare pictures and videos throughout this thread.
Many of the links provide timelines of the events to get you up to speed.

Sandy has left 8 million people without electricity, and millions without homes to return to. Many people are completely disconnected from the world. Cell towers and internet is beginning to fail in NYC.

Beyond page 3, this thread takes a serious turn.

Thank you for reading.
*Taps Mic* This may be my final rant.

So this great city, NYC... With a wimpgit azz major... Not so great.
And Brooklyn niccas float... > The Official Hurricane Sandy AKA "Frankenstorm.” In NYC. Can Yall Give Me An Online Funeral Service. - Photo posted in Wild videos, news, and other media | Sign in and leave a comment below!

Once again we are being tested...
The lawd does not exist... Obviously.
But still ima say he is testing us, so religious folks can feel me.

We defeated Irene hoe azz...
While yall dudes in the south had to swim west,
here in NYC white people swag surfed down the city streets in 60Mph winds asking for more.

Shiit wasnt that serious, came through pushed a lil leaves. Brooklyn was safe, NYC is safe. The only thing that can take this great city down is a big azz airplane. Thankfully airplanes the size of continents dont exist.
We told Irene to suk us up, and jizzed in her eye as it passed over us.

But now... The biitch older sister wanna come through.
"Sandy." Because of the size of this hoe, she is already being amped up by the media...
Our local news stations are saying things like it will be "epic" "historic" "catastrophic" "real nicca's shiit".
The official nick name so far the media is using is "Frankenstorm.”

No one knows exactly where this biitch is gonna hit, but its coming off water, and its its coming right over boston, NYC, NJ, update basically she trying to fuk everybody this weekend and through the week.

No one knows if she even gonna come off the water and kiss us like that. But if she were to do some hoe shiit like that. We would be in some serious trouble... Even at 70mph cat2, the city would be swimming.
“The worst-case scenario is that the storm hits in the mid-Jersey area,” he said. “That forces water from the ocean into New York Harbor and we get significant flooding in New York City, particularly in Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.”
So 2 things can happen this weekend. She can turn away, or follow the path getting stronger over the water, then land right on top of us. If that really is the case... And it goes down.

Because our mayor hates black people "Stop and frisk". Im pretty sure there will be a white people, and hipster evacuation first. If you are biracial, you will probably have to prove your dad is white, or else you risk being left to float on a hood, in your hood...

On my way home I was stuck in grid lock traffic, people saying they are headed south for the weekend. Like literally, I was bumper to bumper stuck mid afternoon.

Governor declared state of emergency. Evacuations are going to be happening in the next couple hours. No subway, no buses this weekend.

In conclusion... I can swim, dont let niccas try to tell u black people cant swim. But honestly i dont want to fuking swim. So if ima drown, ima go to the third floor of our home, put on some NBA 2k13, and finally beat the heat with the brooklyn nets on superstar in the playoff's.

Make sure yall have a online wake for a nicca, Ronnie say a couple words... Tell em a story about me getting banned or sumtin or the legendary tranny thread.

Kendrick Lamar Responds To Shyne Criticism Of His Album...


 Kendrick Lamar Responds To Shyne Criticism Of His Album
.
West Coast rap newcomer Kendrick Lamar has stepped forward to address criticism from Shyne on his debut album Good Kid m.A.A.D. City.
Last week the former Bad Boy rapper took to Twitter to bash KDOT’s album calling it “trash.”
A few other rappers on the West Coast including Game have since jumped to the defense of their fellow West Coast emcee.

Speaking with HipHopWired, Kendrick Lamar says he does not take offense to Shyne’s comments.
“It’s really no response [to him],” Lamar says.
“I’m not a sensitive guy, so that’s his opinion. Can’t stop what the world thinks, so yeah, that’s him,” he added.
The album is expected to sell more than 200,000 copies in its first week of release putting it at the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
“It feels great, lets me know that people still wanna’ hear good music, real music,” the Compton rapper says. Music that has a connection, rather than just one artist, or one record on the radio.”
Do you think Shyne is just hating or do you think his opinion on the album is right?

Gabrielle Union Celebrates 40th Birthday, Says She Is Not Ready For Marriage Or Baby...

Actress Gabrielle Union celebrated her 40th birthday last week and she looked stunning.
The Think Like A Man actress celebrated her big day with close friends and family at The Dream Downtown Hotel in New York City.
During an interview with with JustTheFab yesterday, Union says she is not yet ready for kids and have no plans to walk down the isle anytime soon.
On whether she has baby fever yet
No. [laughs] Well I have dance-on-table fever and I don’t think you can really do those two together or I think they arrest you. I’ll probably get baby-fever somewhere after, you know, marriage fever. And I’m still enjoying boyfriend-girlfriend fever.
On whether she plans to get married in the near future
I don’t know. I mean, we like each other a lot and we both failed miserably the last time either one of us got married. So, I think we’re doing it slow, you know what I mean? I think when you rush in, then people have crap to say. If you go too slow, people still have stuff to say, so, I think we have to just take it at the pace that’s great for us. But, who knows? I’m open to everything, but right now I just like saying “my boyfriend, my boyfriend, my boyfriend D Wade’. And then maybe later, provided my eggs aren’t dust, we’ll see what I can (coughs) cough out.
Happy 40th birthday Gabby.

Thanks again for your support.”

Spike Lee Fired From James Brown Movie as White Director Takes Over...


Spike Lee will no longer be the writer and director of the highly anticipated James Brown bio-pic. The famed director was fired by producer Brian Grazer who originally hired Lee for the film shortly after Brown’s death in 2006.
Eddie Murphy, who was cast by Lee to play Brown, once told BlackTree TV that the script was a “great, great piece.”
However, Glazer decided to fire Lee and hired Tate Taylor. Taylor was the director of the film The Help.
Although the movie was critically-acclaimed, it lacked in story structure and failed to give a complete view of black life during that era. Essentially, it was a black story told from a white person’s point of view.
Before The Help, Tate only directed the lackluster film Pretty Ugly People.
His credentials are not adequate for a film as enormous as James Brown.
Lee has also directed a few duds. However, he’s mostly known for being the man behind American classics such as Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X.
Glazer’s decision to fire Lee and hire Tate proves that Hollywood continues to be a racially divided industry. Black filmmakers will only get an opportunity to tell their stories when wealthy blacks make a point to invest in the business by opening more production studios.

Incarcerated Jamaican Artist Busy Signal to be Released November 21; U.S. Concerts A Possibility...


Popular Jamaican sing-jay Busy Signal's 2008 gritty hit single "Nah Go A Jail Again" has taken on a renewed significance for the artist.



On September 21, Busy Signal, born Glendale Gordon, was fined $30,000 and sentenced to six months in prison by Minnesota State District Court Judge Donovan W. Frank for absconding bail related to drug trafficking charges brought against him 10 years ago. In March 2002 the Minnesota District Court Case no. 0:02-cr-00054-JMR-FLN: USA v. Gordon charged Glendale Gordon, at the time a resident alien in the US, with one count of Conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, three counts of conspiracy to distribute cocaine (level 4) and a third charge of possession with intent to distribute cocaine. 'Level 4' is an indicator of conspiracy to distribute five or more kilograms.
In a Minnesota courtroom on July 19 Gordon pled guilty to removing his ankle bracelet-tracking device and fleeing to Jamaica ten years ago; the drug charges still remain but according to the artist's Jamaica-based lawyer, KD Knight, U.S. authorities do not have the jurisdiction to prosecute him on those counts under the current extradition treaty between the US and Jamaica. Gordon has already served four months -- a month in Kingston's General Penitentiary and three months in Minnesota's Sherbourne County Jail -- with a release date set for November 21.

"Busy felt like he was in prison for the last 10 years; all he could think about when he went to sleep was this situation so today is a milestone for us because now he is mentally free," said his manager Shane Brown, the CEO of Kingston's Juke Boxx Productions, on the phone from Minnesota minutes after the sentence was handed down. Brown is the primary producer on Busy's most recent album, the critically lauded Reggae Music Again (VP Records). With it's lush, live instrumentation celebrating roots rock reggae as it flaunts Busy's nuanced singing and rapid fire deejayed rhymes, Reggae Music Again debuted at no. 6 on the Top Reggae Album chart for the week of April 28th and remained on the tally for 16 weeks.



On May 21, law-enforcement agents from the US, the United Kingdom and Jamaica served Gordon with an extradition warrant in Kingston as he disembarked a flight arriving from the UK following the completion of a European tour. After waiving his right to a hearing in Jamaica, he was extradited on June 19 and has remained in the Sherbourne County Jail.

Under Minnesota's sentencing guidelines Gordon could have received a 12-18 month term; Brown credits the diligence of Gordon's Minnesota-based attorney William Mauzy for the reduced time. A week prior to the sentencing hearing Mauzy flew to Jamaica and filmed interviews with veteran singer Marcia Griffiths (who appears in the "Reggae Music Again" video), Busy's pastor, grandmother and teachers at Busy's alma mater Brown's Town High School where, in 2009, the artist furnished the school's computer lab providing 12 computers and accessories. Their comments were compiled into a DVD testimonial, which included clips of Busy performing in Gambia in front of 60,000 fans at a 2010 concert and Jamaica's RE TV (Reggae Entertainment Television) 2011 High School Tour where he spoke to students about abstinence from sex and HIV awareness.

Judge Frank privately viewed the DVD two days prior to the sentencing hearing. "The judge was really impressed with what Busy has done with his life in the past 10 years since becoming an artist, the fact that he has never been in trouble with the law in Jamaica, and he took those things into consideration before handing down the sentence," Brown explained. "The judge wants him to do more community service work in Jamaica and we have established the Busy Signal Foundation, which will assist in the educational needs of underprivileged children," Brown continued. "The judge also wants him to enjoy the freedom to pursue his career, so it's important he keeps doing music of substance like his last album."



Upon his return to Jamaica Busy has to wait two years to apply for a U.S. Visa/work permit. However, by law, he is allowed to remain in the states for 45 days following the completion of his Minnesota sentence. During that time Brown and VP Records will step up promotions of Reggae Music Again, thus maximizing the attention Busy is currently receiving for spiritedly trading verses with Gwen Stefani on the (Major Lazer-produced) title track to No Doubt's recently released album Push and Shove (Interscope).

Brown is currently consulting with Attorney Mauzy and Judge Frank to determine Busy's eligibility for working in the US upon his release. If permission is granted, concerts could take place in New York and Miami as well as other cities, marking the first time Busy has ever performed in the U.S. "Since Friday's sentencing, we were offered 20 shows by a US promoter," Brown said, although he wouldn't offer more details. "America is a very important market for reggae artists," Brown added, "and with this sentencing, it opens the door for Busy to try to come back and be heard by a wider audience."

Idris Elba ... the next James Bond?

> Idris Elba ... the next James Bond? - Photo posted in The TV and Movie Spot | Sign in and leave a comment below!

Idris Elba’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thanks to critically acclaimed roles on HBO’s The Wire and the BBC series, Luther. His commercial appeal is growing, too, after being cast in Thor (2011), Ridley Scott’s Prometheus (2012), and Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming Pacific Rim (2013). The question for Elba now is – what next?

Yesterday, we learned that Sam Mendes has expressed doubts about directing another James Bond film after Skyfall, which sparked a debate in the comments about who should play James Bond after Daniel Craig’s tenure ends (he’s signed on for two more Bond films at the moment). One name that continues to pop up is Idris Elba, and now there’s reason to believe that it’s more than mere speculation.

According to Elba’s co-star in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and the newest “Bond girl,” Naomie Harris – courtesy of The Huffington Post - Elba met with longtime Bond movie producer Barbara Broccoli to discuss the possibility of him becoming the first black James Bond. Check out what Harris said below:

“I didn’t realize that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond. And I would have to vote for Idris because I just finished working with him and he’s a great guy.”


Idris Elba and Naomie Harris of the upcoming film: ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’

Obviously, race has played a role in the discussion of whether or not Idris Elba might play James Bond, as Bond has been portrayed by a Caucasian actor over the span of 23 films and six decades. However, in October of last year, Elba dismissed skin color as a real argument against his being cast.

“I don’t want to be the black James Bond. Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond, and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond, so if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond.”

So would Idris Elba make a quality James Bond, Screen Rant readers? He’s the right age, he has the right physical build, he’s English, and his acting talent and onscreen presence in Luther won him a 2012 Golden Globe. In our opinion, playing James Bond would be right in his wheelhouse.

Still, there’s no telling when precisely the meeting between Idris Elba and Barbara Broccoli took place, as Naomie Harris didn’t specify. It’s entirely possible those talks happened well before the studio committed to Craig for two more films.

Even if Elba doesn’t break the James Bond color barrier, fans will certainly still have plenty to look forward to with Pacific Rim , a third season of Luther, and beyond.

Matt Barnes Suspended By NBA Over Cop Drama Suspended By NBA Over Cop Drama...


Matt Barnes has been suspended by the NBA for one game (without pay) … after the L.A. Clippers forward pled “no contest” to interfering with the duties of a police officer.
GameTimeGirl

According to the NBA, Barnes will serve out his suspension tomorrow — when the Clippers play their season opener against the Memphis Grizzlies.
The punishment stems from an incident back in July — when Barnes was arrested for driving on a suspended license and resisting arrest.
As we first reported, Barnes eventually pled no contest to misdemeanor interference with the duties of a police officer … and his suspended license charge was dropped when he proved he had a valid license.

Buju Banton asks judge to reconsider drug sentence....



— Buju Banton's new attorney has asked a federal judge in Tampa to reconsider the 10-year prison sentence the Jamaican reggae singer is serving on two drug charges.
Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is set to appear Tuesday in Tampa federal court for a re-sentencing on a gun possession charge. That charge carries an additional five-year prison sentence.
The motion filed last week includes a letter to U.S. District Judge James Moody from Banton's former attorney, David O. Markus.
Markus represented Banton in the singer's two trials in Tampa in 2010 and 2011. He says Banton is eligible for a reduced sentence of five years and a day because he's a first-time, non-violent offender with "the support of his entire country" and a history of charitable works.

Russell Simmons's Thoughts on Lil Reese...

The video that came out last week of Lil Reese beating up a young woman had me sick to my stomach. We know that physical abuse of women is rampant in our community, but the video really bothered me. Not just because the attacker was so young, but because it reminded me of the failed opportunity that this young artist is wasting. I have always believed that artists and entertainers have gifts that can uplift the consciousness of millions of people around the world. We have seen that time and time again. However, the actions of Lil Reese and his subsequent "apology" cause me great concern because he thinks that will be enough. He will have to do much more work to rid himself of his violent behavior.

The truth is, I know many guys who I grew up with who beat their girls. Domestic abuse is everywhere, in every trailer park and in every project building. At times it might seem like it will never stop, but we must stand up against it. And artists should be the ones who are forward thinking and creating more awareness around the solutions, not perpetuating the problem. I certainly respect the difficulties of growing up without all of the tools to become a man, but this should NEVER be an excuse to hit a woman. Our children are growing up in neighborhoods where during one weekend, 80 people are shot, where violence is everywhere they look and they are becoming numb to it all. We must do better raising our children, but as artists, we must do much better about how we use our voices.

I am certainly a believer in compassion and will do everything I can to uplift Lil Reese, in private. But let me very clear, publicly, we must do better.
