Diddy’s Revolt TV Sued For Firing Old White Men

Douglas Goodstein and four other Caucasian producers are firing back at Sean “Diddy” Combs and his company Revolt TV because they feel they were treated unfairly and fired because they were white. And over 39 years old.

The team of producers filed a Manhattan Supreme Court suit and claim that they were regularly treated “worse than other employees who were younger and African-American,” according to Page Six.

Chance the Rapper Hopes Trump Doesn’t Mean What We All Think He Does About Chicago

Chance the Rapper recently sat down with ESPN’s The Undefeated for a joint interview with Chicago Bulls player Jimmy Butler. The two talked about the city and how they’re each leaving their own legacies, one being a hometown kid who just won three Grammys, the other being the centerpiece of an historic basketball franchise.

During part of the discussion, Chance responded to President Donald Trump’s vague threats to “send in the feds” if Chicago’s gun violence wasn’t curbed. As a native of the city’s South Side, the rapper had some interesting insight. 

Taylor Bennett Comes Out As Bisexual, Gets Support From Big Brother Chance the Rapper

Hip-hop culture isn’t necessarily known for being the most welcoming community when it comes to a number of issues. Non-heterosexuality is, perhaps, at the top of the list behind women’s rights.

This history is exactly why it was inspiring when Taylor Bennett took the time to come out and tell the world he identifies as bisexual the day before his 21st birthday. 

Why I can’t hold onto the gospel of Pastor Kim Burrell

By: Kelvin L. Easiley, Jr.

Where does one seek solace when faith fails? Where do the lost find shelter when the leaders that claim to love them preach “death and hell fire” for the simple act of existing? When the music that once soothed and brought peace only sounds like a cacophony of chaos and the choir’s chorus rings a melody that you and your kind are not welcome?

This past week, two major influencers in gospel music openly spat venomous vitriol from the pulpit to the raucous amens from their respective audiences.

A Georgia University Offers An English Course On Outkast

Students at Armstrong State University can now earn college credit while stimulating and activating their left and right brain as they learn about the music of Outkast.

The Savannah, Ga. college is now offering a course on the careers of André 3000 and Big Boi and how their music affected and exuded the mentality of the American South. 

Young Thug Apologizes To Black Women Airport Employees He Called ‘Ants’ and ‘Peasants’

Young Thug made headlines last week when he was recorded on video calling two black women working at an airport “peasants,” “ants,” and “African-looking.”

Thug has apparently arrived late to his flight and tried to offer the employees $15,000 to quit their jobs. After the women said no, they informed the Jeffrey rapper that they’d called their manager. As time went on, Thug went on to taunt the women. 

Kanye West: ‘I would’ve voted for Trump’

Remember when Kanye West said that he was running for president in 2020? Everyone had a laugh and and even made a hashtag out of it. Meanwhile, some of us paused and realized there was no reason to presume he would be running as as a Democrat. Those concerns have been justified.

At a recent concert, the rapper/fashion designer took one of his trademark self-imposed interruptions to let the crowd know what side of the line he fell on in the recent election. The fact that he didn’t actually vote is somehow the relief.

Chance the Rapper Literally Marches Hundreds of Fans to the Polls

Chance the Rapper yet again showed out for his city by organizing and headlining a free concert in Chicago’s Grant Park to encourage people to vote. But the more impressive part came immediately after when he led hundreds of concert-goers through the streets, with the help of Black Youth Project 100 organizers, to an early voting facility. The event was dubbed as a “Parade to the Polls.”

At What Point Do We Give Up on Our Problematic Faves?

As a Lil’ Wayne fan, I’m disappointed, and I’m allowed to be.

After his recently shared interview with ABC’s Nightline, where Wayne expressed that he doesn’t feel connected to the Black Lives Matter movement, a lot of Black people reacted on social media and I think we all can admit, it was painful to watch. Many Black folks responded with “stop asking Lil’ Wayne questions about important things” or “what did you expect” from an artist like him? Well I expected more, to be honest, and to count him out of the conversation just because his answers don’t align with the current conversation around uplifting the Black community doesn’t seem right to me.

One thing I’ve learned is that in our efforts to push the Movement, we don’t have people to spare – why are we so opposed to calling him, and entertainers like him, in? Why are we so ready to throw them out, rather than challenge them?
