VIDEO: Fresh off of the Press – Mike D’ Angelo “Humble Beginnings Pt. 1”

Mike D’Angelo is taking the DMV by storm.  He is a thriving Hip-Hop artist pushing the limits as a community leader and activist and lyrical MC.  He recently won “Breakout Artist of the Year,” at the DMV’s Annual Titan Awards, where the winner is based off of a voting system.  Mike also recently held a benefit concert for the family of  James Anthony Smith, a local teenager killed in SE, Washington, DC over a pair of Jordans, that his mother bought him as an early Christmas present.

Back in August, Dre Black had the pleasure of spending some time with Mike, where they went back to Mike’s childhood neighborhood located in Edgewood NE, Washington, DC.  From there they went on what was supposed to be a 15 min interview to a 4 hour day of great footage of Mike in his element.

Remy Ma – “SHEther”

Image result for shether remy ma

If you have been under a rock the last 24 hrs, the #1 trending song on Twitter right now is a little song called “SHEther,” a major Nicki Minaj diss by Remy Ma.  This week Nicki unveiled two collaborations that she is featured on one with Gucci Mane called “Make Love,” and the other called Swalla,” with Jason Derulo.  On both songs, Nicki seems to take aim at Remy Ma. Well, Remy wasted no time…actually less than 48 hrs to be exact to respond.

As a Nicki fan and supporter of Remy, I was a bit traumatized by the assassination of Nicki’s character etc.  Could this be the modern day Lil Kim’ and Foxy Brown beef?

Nicki has no other options but to release nothing but venomous poison to win round 2.

Take a listen below:

Sam Sarpong Dies: Tommy Hilfiger Model, Yo Momma Host, Actor Dead of Apparent Suicide at 40

BURBANK, CA - SEPTEMBER 29: Actor Sam Sarpong attends

British-American actor and model Sam Sarpong passed away on Monday, Oct. 26, sources confirmed to Us Weekly. Sarpong took his own life. He was 40 at the time of his death.

A rep for Sam released the following statement:

“It is with great sadness that the family of Samuel Sarpong Jr. must share the news that Sam has passed away,” his family said in a statement via his rep. “The circumstances surrounding his death are currently under investigation and no additional details are known at this time. … The family appreciates the thoughts and prayers and other expressions of sympathy, and request that privacy be respected at this extremely difficult time.”

The statement also noted that final arrangements are forthcoming.

According to a news release from the Pasadena Police Department, a witness called law enforcement on Monday morning after seeing a man standing outside of the bridge railing. Officers and firefighters communicated with him for hours, but he ultimately jumped to his death.

“It is sad and troubling when an individual has become so despondent that he or she feels their only option is to end their life,” Police Chief Phillip Sanchez said in a statement. “These incidents can often have a significant impact on the victim’s loved ones, first responders, and the community as a whole. My prayers go out to the family.”

Sam lived in Pasadena, was born in London and moved to the USA with his Ghana-born father when he was 11.

He appeared as an actor in scores of films, such as Anchor Baby and Love Don’t Cost a Thing, and also scores of TV series, such as Bones, 24Cold Case, NCIS and ER.

His IMDb page reports he was filming a role in the upcoming FX series, American Crime Story, scheduled to air in 2016.

He may have been best known as a co-host on MTV’s Yo Momma for three seasons alongside Wilmer Valderrama.

He won the MAA Fashion Award for Male Model of the Year, and twice was named byToday’s Black Woman magazine on their “Fifty Most Beautiful People” list.

Bobby Brown Formally Accuses Nick Gordon in Death of Bobbi Kris

In a statement to the media Bobby Brown formally accuses Nick Gordon of harming his daughter Bobbi Kristina. 

The letter from Bobby’s lawyer reads,

“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon.”

“Mr. Gordon made headlines when he filed his Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit pending in Superior Court that seeks to hold him responsible for 40 million dollars in damages.”

“However, the Motion was frivolous and instead of having it heard by the Court, he has chosen to withdraw the Motion, ending that matter so that he could avoid having to give his deposition which was scheduled for the day he withdrew the Motion. Mr. Gordon will now have to give his deposition under oath.”

“I am not shocked at the withdrawal, as we must keep in mind that Gordon filed a lawsuit to remove Bobby Brown as Bobbi Kristina’s guardian, only to withdraw that lawsuit in DeKalb County Probate Court once he was served with a deposition notice. He could have pressed forward with that lawsuit and told us under oath what he believed happened to Bobbi Kristina, but he chose to go in another direction.”
