On television...

We've got a FIRST LOOK” at VH1’s newest original hip-hop movie called “The Breaks” which will debut this winter.

.

 

 

 

“The Breaks” stars Wood Harris (Remember The Titans, Paid in Full) and Mack Wilds (90210) and is based on the book by journalist Dan Charnas’ entitled “The Big Payback,” a narrative history of the hip-hop business.

“The Breaks” is written, directed and executive produced by Seith Mann (The Wire, The Walking Dead, Homeland) and is scored and executive music produced by the legendary, DJ Premier.

According to VH1, here's the synopsis:

"The Breaks" will chronicle the journey of Nikki (Afton Williamson), David (David Call) and DeeVee (Mack Wilds), three friends united by their love of hip-hop, as they work to make their big mark in the music industry. The film will travel viewers back to the summer of 1990 in New York City where the music industry¹s artists and hustlers intersect in the dance clubs and the street corners of the still crime-ridden city. Nikki Jones is a brilliant recent grad who abandoned a scholarship to law school to pursue her dream of becoming a record exec. Her boyfriend, David Aaron, is the scrappy son of a legendary music producer who is unwilling to rest on his father¹s laurels and notorious reputation. DeeVee is an aspiring producer on the hunt to find the next big rapper on the come-up. Nikki fast talks her way into an internship at the premier hip-hop company, Fouray Entertainment and catches the eye of the label's infamous founder, while David struggles at the city's top R&B radio station whose celebrity DJ refuses to program real hip-hop. Meanwhile, DeeVee returns to his roots in the Fort Greene projects to scout for talent and runs into Ahm, a drug dealer with a lyrical gift whose talent could bring them all to the next level. But they will soon discover lives can be broken as fast as legends can be born."
 

 

We love us some Mack Wilds. Are you excited about the show?

T-Pain Sings The National Anthem Before The Dodgers Game + O'Shea Jackson Jr & Ice Cube At The 'Straight Outta Compton' Australian Premiere

 photo tpainicecusdeewe.png

Hip Hop producer T-Pain wowed fans with his rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the LA Dodgers game while rapper Ice Cube and son O'Shea Jackson Jr. headed to Australia for the SOC premiere.  More inside...

Yesterday, the LA Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants (5-4) after 14 innings, but the real winner was hip hop producer T-Pain.

While the rapper/producers has made millions of dollars and several worldwide hits using auto-tune, he treated fans to his "natural" voice while singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" during the game's opening.   And it was pretty awesome! 

 photo tpain3.jpg

While we aren't expecting him to go and release an album of acoustic tunes any time soon, it was refreshing to hear that voice of his.  On Instagram he wrote, "Thanks for having me @dodgers first time I ever sang the anthem. #ITFDB how was it??"

Watch the performance here:

Here's an interesting tidbit. T-Pain recently told Rolling Stone that if Donald Trump becomes president, he's going to move to Australia. He said, "He's got a hell of a PR person. He's got money — allegedly — and he's got PR. I think it's great. Do your thing, man. If he can win, who can stop him? It will be a huge deal. I will probably move to Australia, but good luck you guys."

 

Speaking of Australia...

Here in the States, SOC remained #1 at the box office for the third week in a row, raking in over $13M and bringing its cumulative intake to $134 million.  Not many flicks are messing with those types of numbers.

Outside of the US, SOC has been  massive success in other markets.  Recently, the film opened at #1 in the UK and Germany and we're expecting similar success in Australia.

Congrats to the cast and their continued success!

BABY’S DAY OUT: Tamera Mowry Housley Spotted Out With Baby Girl Ariah (FIRST PEEK At Her Face!)

 photo tiasn3.jpg

Fab mom Tamera Mowry Housley was spotted pushing her 2-month-old baby girl Ariah through LAX today. Come inside to see the first sneak peek at her bundle of joy…

“The Real” co-host Tamera Mowry Housley and her husband Adam Housley became proud parents again when their baby girl Ariah Talea Housley entered into this world just two months ago (July 1st). And for the first time since she made her grand arrival, mom and baby were spotted outside of the house headed on a flight out of Cali.

Likely one of her first major outings, little Ariah stayed covered up in her stroller as her mom pushed her through LAX airport today. It appears Tamera is bringing baby Ariah along for her trip to NYC with her co-hosts for their NYC Take Over to promote the upcoming season of "The Real."

The fab chick was casually cute in all black with a head full of her natural bouncy curls. She appeared to be in good spirits as she trekked through the airport.

And while the photogs didn't catch a FULL pic of Ariah's face, they did get this:

 photo fbrnr3.jpg

Yep...that's all we're getting as of now. Tamera has kept baby Ariah under wraps. And we wouldn't be surprised if she does a big reveal for the show.

"The Real" will back with new episodes for their second season beginning September 14th. Stay tuned...
