Do you see what I see? This is my iphone screen shot of Asher Roth’s historical twitter f*ck up. Last night while perusing the tweets on my phone. I saw that Asher had repeated Don Imus’ “Nappy Headed Hoe” comment. Not one to normally jump the gun, I immediately hit Asher on Twitter like WTF?!? and I know I’m not the only one.
This one single statement was re-tweeted (repeated for you non twitters) over and over again by several who, like me, were disgusted that this would come from Asher. He being, an up and coming rap star and all, making mad dough off of music that was invented by nappy headed folk. Should probably not go there.
We discussed this for a bit last night and someone said that if it were Jeezy it would just be funny and we’d move on. Probably true. But Jeezy has nappy hair too. So it’s OK….or is it?
After about 25 minutes, Asher actually apologized (twice) for his stupid statement. But his apologies were lame to say the least. Like seriously dude…how could you?? *sigh* A few seconds later, all three “tweets” were history. Deleted. Never to be seen again. Well…except in the screen shots below that we all took cause we knew this was coming: Continue Reading…

Monica (pictured above with BET CEO Debra Lee), Comedianne Monique and Actor Terry Crews (“Everybody Hates Chris”) will all be featured in BET’s upcoming lineup next season. Mo and Crews will have reality shows built around their lives, while Monique will host her own late night comedy show.
The slate of shows represents the first programming under new co-presidents Loretha Jones and Stephen Hill, who took over the position following the exit of Reginald Hudlin last year. During a sneak preview Jones and Hill said the new programming will represent a branding strategy of family values and community pride – an attempt at moving away from some of the negative African American programs the network has received criticism for in the past.
“Monica: Standing Up” will focus on the Monica’s family life and her comeback album, “Breakin’ Up With Mo’Nique” will mark the network’s first late-night talk show and “Crews Control” will focus on the actor, his wife and five kids.
If you’re an avid reader of this site, you recieved this information months ago when I sat down with Monica one on one. That’s my girl and I’m soooo happy for her! Congrats again Mo….I’ll definitely be watching!

Grand Hustle’s Young Dro don’t play when it comes to purple label Polo. Hell, he represents Ralph Lauren to the fullest and even plans on naming his next project P.O.L.O. Now, I told y’all about shouting out all these companies who don’t give a got-dayum about you…but *sigh* I know somma ya’ll don’t listen. Anywhoo…Dro, always the fashionista, has been rockin a Polo man-bag for a while and I can’t help but wonder what the hell is in it??? I mean….what does a man need a purse for? Hmmmmmm? *scratching head*
I can think of at least 3 things but then I’m stomped. Check out my mini list + the full video of Young Dro and his new producer, Raz, chopping it up with Ms. RiverCity from Ozone Mag below. Get you some. You’ll thank me later… Continue Reading…

“Following in the footsteps of Karrine Steffans, Buffy the Body has a tell all book coming out in June. If you don’t have anything else of fictional literary quality to read this summer, then this might be worth picking up. After all it is a book…” via MrsGrapeVine
