Pastor Troy, a beloved rapper known for having an authentic WWE replica belt and screaming a lot, has finally made it big time.
Now he’s on Judge Alex, who is kind of the Pastor Troy of television judges because you forget he exists until people mention his name and you say “who”?
Apparently, a former friend and club promoter found some change in his couch and wanted to book Pastor Troy for his club in Augusta.
Well, Troy didn’t know it was in Augusta at first and backed out because he has beef with people there. Well, the promoter couldn’t live with the disappointment of a canceled Pastor Troy show would cause dozens of fans, so he sent him to Judge Alex. (Via TSS)

Mega producer Tyler Perry recently wrote an open letter in support of George Lucas’ “Red Tails” film.
Lucas has gone on record to state that he had trouble getting funding for the film due to it’s all Black cast and he fears that it’s failure could cause negative repercussions to Black filmmakers like Perry.
“I realize that by accident I’ve now put the black film community at risk [with Red Tails, whose $58 million budget far exceeds typical all-black productions],” he said.
“I’m saying, if this doesn’t work, there’s a good chance you’ll stay where you are for quite a while. It’ll be harder for you guys to break out of that [lower-budget] mold. But if I can break through with this movie, then hopefully there will be someone else out there saying let’s make a prequel and sequel, and soon you have more Tyler Perrys out there.” (WATCH VIDEO)
Perry agrees…. and says in his letter that films starring an all black cast are on the verge of being extinct!
