Lena Waithe Becomes the First Black Woman to Win Emmy for Comedy Writing

TheSource Feed - Mon, 09/18/2017 - 1:35pm

It was a night of firsts for Black comedians at the Emmys on Sunday night, September 18th.

Lena Waithe made history as the first Black woman to win for comedy writing for co-writing the “Thanksgiving” episode of “Master of None” with series co-creator and star, Aziz Ansari. Waithe also has a recurring role on the Netflix series. The episode “Thanksgiving” was about Waithe coming out as a lesbian.”When we got the script it resonated with me so much,” states actress Eden Duncan-Smith who played Teen Denise. “Lena was able to capture not just her experience- but an entire generation. Coming out in the 90s was an entirely different beast back then and I am glad that she allowed me to be a part of that storytelling”. Which is why it was only right that Waithe gave a special shoutout to her “LGBTQIA family”.

Waithe was overcome with emotion and took the time out to urge for diversity in Hollywood because “The things that make us different — those are our superpowers”. Waithe continued to give words of encouragement to social outcasts, “go out there and conquer the world. It would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren’t in it.”

Waithe is out here making moves. She’s gearing up for the release of her autobiographical Showtime series about her coming of age years in Chicago called The Chi. She is also developing other television projects. Although Insecure was snubbed of all nominations, Issa Rae would be proud.

Kevin Hart Was Creeping And Involved in Multi-Million Dollar Extortion

TheSource Feed - Mon, 09/18/2017 - 12:48pm

Kevin Hart is in the hot seat after a woman who claimed to have sexual relations with the comedian threatened to expose him. Hart attempted to do damage control by issuing an apology video on Instagram to his pregnant wife and family saying that he has got to do better, but the woman wasn’t moved and gave TMZ a very graphic video.

Sending so many apologies to my wife & kids. I gotta do better and I will. I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be …I love you all.

A post shared by Kevin Hart (@kevinhart4real) on Sep 16, 2017 at 4:07pm PDT

The picture below is from the video showing a prelude to Hart getting involved in activities that are inappropriate to his marriage. The scene then cuts to the bedroom where two people are having sex. You can’t tell who the people are but when the man gets up to put on his clothes it sure does look a lot like Hart. The evidence was provided on an anonymous tip, along with an audio clip that further hindered Hart’s newly wholesome image with his own words. You can hear Hart in his interview with The Breakfast Club saying that he has matured since his last marriage and would no longer cheat because it’s easy for a super star like him to get caught.

But Hart isn’t going down without a fight and got the FBI involved. The extortionist reportedly made several demands and asked for about 8 figures at one point. Sources say that Hart was caught creeping on an iPhone that was propped against an object in the room, and that is illegal without consent. FBI agents think they have a lead. Stay tuned for more details for this is a developing story.

Donald Glover Wins Big at Emmys, Confirms Collaboration With Chance The Rapper

TheSource Feed - Mon, 09/18/2017 - 11:35am

Donald Glover retired his musical alter ego Childish Gambino earlier this year. However, Glover gave an interview during the Emmys red carpet backstage that confirmed that Gambino will be coming out of hiatus to collaborate with Chance The Rapper. He gave an insight about not liking to be pressured into doing music, but he confirmed that the joint project is on its way.

You know music, I don’t ever wanna do anything because I’m forced to. I think once you do that, like, things start to get bad, you jump the shark. Also, I feel like, if I don’t make a Chance The Rapper mixtape, like double mixtape, a bunch of 14-year-old’s are gonna kick my ass. So—they stop me on the street and it’s kinda scary. So I feel like I gotta do something, and I probably will.

This confirmation follows Glover’s historic win at the 2017 Emmys last night, September 18th. He won Outstanding Lead Actor and Directing in Comedy Series for Atlanta, and received a nod for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. Making him the first Black director to win an Emmy in comedy. “I want to thank Trump for making black people No. 1 on the most oppressed list,” Glover said during his speech. “He’s the reason I’m probably up here.” He also takes the time to thank his growing family for motivation.

The power of SoundCloud has propelled the careers of many artists including Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti, who are very good friends. It’s straight heat in the booth whenever they link up, and Carti may have teased that they have a collaboration up their sleeves.

Carti took to Snapchat to post a picture of two members from the London rock band The Damned. The accompanied caption read, “Carti Uzi Tape * Uzi Carti Tape * 16.29.” The four digits at the end aren’t a date, but they represent the artists respective blocks in their neighborhoods. Uzi is from 1600 block of his hometown Philly while Carti reps 2900 blocks in Atlanta.

Although nothing is official, many fans began speculating and are now awaiting a joint mixtape from Uzi and Carti. Uzi is fresh off the release of his debut album Luv is Rage 2 which debuted at No. 1 and recently teased Lil Uzi Vert vs The World 2. Carti released his debut self-titled album earlier this year, so he’s due for some new music.

Jamie Foxx is Set to Play Mike Tyson in Upcoming Biopic

TheSource Feed - Mon, 09/18/2017 - 9:45am

Jamie Foxx fueled rumors about him starring in a Mike Tyson biopic in 2014. He also hinted at involvement from Wolf of Wall Street writer Terence Winter and helmsman Martin Scorsese, but that was three years ago and there hasn’t been much chatter about it until earlier this year. Foxx re-confirmed the biopic’s existence in an interview with Screen Rant.

Screen Rant: Speaking of getting punched, one of the most polarizing lives of the past thirty years has been Mike Tyson. I know you were attached [to a biopic of Tyson], what’s the update on that?

Jamie Foxx: That is a go.

Screen Rant: It’s a go? Martin Scorsese’s still attached?

Jamie Foxx: Yeah, he’s attached, and it’s—Mike Tyson’s life is one of the most amazing American stories.

Now, Tyson has confirmed that the biopic “is on” to the Jasmine Brand. “Filming hasn’t started yet but it’s going to happen,” Tyson told the blog. “A lot of people aren’t going to like the things I’ve done in my life.” Hollywood enjoys a good biopic, and Tyson’s story is sure to make for a good one.

Dr. Dre And Beats Claim Monster Owes $100M In Back Royalties

TheSource Feed - Mon, 09/18/2017 - 9:01am

Just when Monster LLC, the company that makes Monster headphones, thought they were winning the battle against Beats By Dre, the legal battle between the music accessory giants take a dramatic twist.

In a three year audit by Beats’ lawyers, they allege that Monster owes them a monumental $71 million from a licensing agreement the two companies came to in 2012.

“Despite the considerable sums of money that Monster earned through its contractual relationships with Beats, and despite Beats’ numerous requests to Monster that it comply with the distribution agreement by paying the sums owed to Beats for Beats products it sold, Monster has failed to live up to its contractual promises by failing to pay Beats some $95 million owed under the distribution agreement,” the lawsuit states.

Monster originally sued Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine in 2014, shortly after the Beats sale to Apple for $3 billion. Monster claimed that Dre and Jimmy cheated founder Noel Lee and Monster out of $30 million in the sale to Apple.

That case was thrown out of court and Monster was ordered to pay Beats’ legal fees.

Riots Erupt In St. Louis As Ex-Officer Is Acquitted In Death Of Black Man

TheSource Feed - Sat, 09/16/2017 - 11:08am

About 1,000 protesters surrounded the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson late Friday, breaking at least two windows and throwing red paint at the brick house before some 200 police in riot gear moved in to break it up.

There was no indication on the scene that Krewson was in the home at the time.

A total of nine police officers had been reported injured as of 9 p.m., including one officer with a dislocated shoulder and an officer with a possible broken jaw, Acting Police Chief Lawrence O’Toole said shortly after midnight Saturday, appearing with Krewson in a video. A Highway Patrol trooper was also reported injured.

Two of the city police officers were injured by thrown bricks, police said. They were taken to a hospital, with one officer’s injuries described as “serious.” A third officer was hurt but declined treatment.

Police spokeswoman Schron Jackson said early Saturday that police arrested 32 people Friday. She did not have more details, but said the names of those arrested and the charges they face “are forthcoming.”

Mostly peaceful protests following the not-guilty verdict in the murder trial of former police Officer Jason Stockley turned into unrest after dark, as police officers responded to several locations throughout the Central West End of St. Louis.

St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson found 36-year-old Jason Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action. On Dec. 20, 2011, the then-police officer shot 24-year-old Lamar Smith five times after a high-speed chase and crash.

A video shows a police in which Stockley was chasing Smith and can be heard saying, “I’m going to kill this m**********r. Don’t you know that?”, just minutes before he shot and killed Smith.

After the large group of protesters was able to march unimpeded to Krewson’s home, gather on the lawn and knock on the door — a process that took some 30 minutes — the first police finally arrived and began pushing them back, firing canisters of tear gas.

According to media reports, there have been at least 32 arrests.

Startup Bodega Launches Than Almost Instantly Apologizes

TheSource Feed - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 7:16pm

In the face of surmising outrage, a new startup called Bodega launched Wednesday and has already apologized for their brashness. Controversy was raised due to Bodega’s apparent aim at mom and pop shops with the same title. 

“Despite our best intentions and our admiration for traditional bodegas, we clearly hit a nerve this morning,” Bodega wrote in a Medium post. “And we apologize to anyone we’ve offended. Rather than disrespect to traditional corner stores — or worse yet, a threat — we intended only admiration”.
 
Bodega centered around positioning pantry boxes stocked with non-perishable, convenience store items in locations that possess frequent foot traffic such as gyms, dorms and buildings. Customers unlock the box with an app an they’ll be charged for whatever the camera’s record them taking.    

Cofounder Paul McDonald explained he doesn’t want to put the mom-and-pop shops out of business. 

“We want to build a shopping experience that stands for convenience and ubiquity for people who don’t have easy access to a corner store,” he wrote, apologizing to all those offended.

A$AP Rocky and Under Armour Annouce Partnership

TheSource Feed - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 5:11pm

Following speculation, Under Armour today has confirmed a partnership with hugely influential and young jiggy style arbirter A$AP Rocky.

Rocky will be teaming up with UA for a myriad of new products. His apparel and footwear offerings will be designated under Under Armour Sportswear, which is the brands lifestyle initiative. Not only serving to create new products for the brand, Rocky will also be involved in a host of philanthropic works that center around building community based programming for underserved youth throughout the nation.

Rocky and UA will update existing community centers as well as launch new ones in neighborhoods where individuals have the ability to express their creativity through a variety of different facets namely art, beauty, music, sport and fashion. Initially the areas of Baltimore, Los Angeles and New York will be taken care of.

“I wanted more than a collaboration partner,’” explained A$AP Rocky. “The only way to achieve this is with someone who is likeminded. The Under Armour team, and especially CEO and Founder Kevin Plank, has a shared vision, enthusiasm, and desire to do the same. I grew up in Harlem, and had limited resources to channel my inner-creativity, so I spent too much time on the streets when I should have been more productive. I now have the ability to create a better situation for today’s kids so they can go from school to a safe place to create without boundaries. Under Armour was the company that was most excited about my idea to turn sportswear products on their head while bettering kids’ lives.”

Rocky joins brand ambassadors Tom Brady, Cam Newtown, Stephen Curry and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Todd Montesano, SVP of Global Entertainment and Partnerships detailed the relationship between UA and Rocky.“Our relationship with Rocky is a first for Under Armour; he is one of the most influential style leaders working off field in the world today and we respect his pure creative expertise and passion for culture and community, we believe Rocky will undoubtedly provide an impact across our business and it is our intent to empower him and his numerous talents to explore new product avenues. Furthering our unique and truly first-of-its-kind partnership together, we’ll prioritize giving back in disadvantaged communities, particularly with the youth of America.”

A Civilization That Existed on the Island of Barbuda For Over 300 Years Has Been Extinguished by Hurricane Irma

TheSource Feed - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 4:47pm

Hurricane Irma wiped out the entire island of Barbuda. “For the first time in 300 years, there’s not a single living person on the island of Barbuda”, Ronald Sanders, the Antigua and Barbuda ambassador to the United States, revealed to Public Radio International. 

All 1,800 residents of Barbuda evacuated the Caribbean island ahead of the monstrous storm, that destroyed nearly every structure of the 62 mile island. Sanders admitted that the island or the people didn’t stand a chance for the “monster”. Most of the inhabitants are staying on Antigua now. It will take about $200 million to repair Barbuda and the small island is unable to recover by itself.

We are a small island community — the gross domestic product of Antigua is $1 billion a year. We cannot afford to take on this responsibility by ourselves. Barbuda is not just a disaster, it’s a humanitarian crisis. We are hopeful that the international community will come to our aid, not because we’re begging for something we want, but because we’re begging for something that is needed.

Child Prodigy TAO Drops New Single “Same Page”

TheSource Feed - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 3:18pm

Picture a kid, age 12, sitting in his father’s studio. He’s grown up seeing hundreds of musicians go in-and-out of his father’s studio, learning how they perfect their sound and style and discovering a love for witty lyrics. His father has a high standard for excellence, and so it comes as a complete shock when the boy’s father turns to him and says, “Why don’t you lay down some bars for this track?”

That’s the scenario in which the artist known as Tao found himself. His father, renowned producer Gerard Fox, was working with a pop artist at the time and he needed something special for the song they were working on. Eager to show his father that he had something special, Tao hopped on the mic and spit a 16-bar feature that would not only impress his hard-to-impress father, but also launch a music career that today is turning heads within the music industry.

“Same Page” is a single that Tao said people will be able to relate to immediately because it tells the story of a relationship and the controversy that can arise when things start to get serious.

“I really put my feelings into it a little bit,” he said of the single. “It’s ultimately about me and my girl being on the same page. We’re moving through the world with no problems because we’re making the best of it. Everything’s better when you’re on the same page.”

President Trump Signs Resolution Condemning White Supremacists

TheSource Feed - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 9:29am

President Trump has signed a resolution condemning white supremacists following violence at a rally in Charlottesville, Va., last month, the White House announced late Thursday.

“As Americans, we condemn the recent violence in Charlottesville and oppose hatred, bigotry, and racism in all forms,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

“No matter the color of our skin or our ethnic heritage, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God,” he continued.

“We are a Nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. As one people, let us move forward to rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.”

The White House announced that Trump signed the measure hours after the president revisited his controversial response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, saying there are “some pretty bad dudes on the other side also.”

A bipartisan group of senators had introduced the measure amid concerns about Trump’s response to the violence, which erupted as white nationalists rallied to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

The resolution condemns “the racist violence and domestic terrorist attack” in Charlottesville, where a suspected white supremacist was accused of plowing a car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one and injuring more than a dozen others.

It also rejects “white nationalism, white supremacy, and neo-Nazism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States.”

The White House announced earlier this week that Trump would sign the resolution.

North Korea Launches Another Missile Over Japan

TheSource Feed - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 9:00am

North Korea has fired a ballistic missile over Japan, its latest act of aggression against a neighbour and key Western ally amid a escalating war of rhetoric with the United States. The missile launch will prove a stern test for both President Doanld Trump and the UN who have so far failed to get Pyongyang to rein in its nuclear ambitions.

The Japanese government said the missile, which was launched from Pyongyang’s Sunan district, had passed over Hokkaido and the country’s military did not try to shoot it down. The US military also said it had detected an intermediate-range ballistic missile, with Defence Secretary Jim Mattis saying the projectile “put millions of Japanese into duck and cover”. Japan issued a nationwide alert that urged residents in the country’s north to take shelter, and Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters he condemned the attack in the strongest possible terms.

The latest missile reportedly travelled 3,700 km, farther than the 2,700 km logged by the prior missile hurled over Japan and far enough to potentially strike the American territory of Guam. North Korea has issued a series of threats against Guam, which hosts a substantial American military presence, and Korean state media called the prior test of a missile over Japan a “a meaningful prelude to containing Guam”. In a statement, US Pacific Command said the latest missile “did not pose a threat to Guam”.

Supreme’s Brooklyn Store Is Real and Almost Completed

TheSource Feed - Thu, 09/14/2017 - 5:12pm

Supreme‘s mythical Brooklyn store is real and it’s close to being completed. Nestled at 152 Grand Street, the location is set to be 3,000 square feet and in a gritty yet refined area of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The stores address has popped up on Google Maps.

The shop is in the final stages. Neighboring stores include Fool’s Gold records and the Apple Williamsburg location is a short distance away.  The area is one that locals are keen on, but the manhattan crowd has yet to fully realize the low-key neighborhood of BK.

 
No word yet on when the store will open but expect the Fall 2017 collection to make itself available at the Brooklyn spot. Rumors of an exclusive box logo tee are circulating, so madness upon the doors opening will undoubtedly ensue.
