The Olympics comes to an end this week. Seems like it all went so fast. Team USA has already racked up its fair share of medals, but there are still more to be awarded in track and field including both men’s and women’s relays, diving and more. There are a couple of cool black movies on this weekend, including the widely-considered classic of 90’s “Boys N The Hood.” Tours continues to criss-cross the country as New Edition and Frankie Beverly and Maze duke it out for hardest working men in show business this summer. Here’s more on the weekend near you.

They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
