  Did you cop Anthony’s Hamilton’s Christmas album, Holiday, yet? If not, you’re missing out on what is sure to become among the all-time great holiday recordings.  The Carolina Crooner hits the road this weekend and if you can catch his show, we count that as at least one church visit. Seriously, that’s how transformative […]

  Post-Thanksgiving weekend is usually a time to rest up for the upcoming week…unless you plan on shopping, in which case, Black Friday is in full swing. Of course, this year, protesters around the country have asked people to stay away from the stores in support of Mike Brown’s family and the shootings of young […]

  You may have heard of a little movie called The Hunger Games? Well the next to last of the four-part story is heading into theaters today. Jeffery Wright, (Boycott, Shaft) Mahershala Ali (House of Cards) and Evan Ross (ATL) join the cast in this incarnation of the story, which takes places as war breaks […]

  The ladies have it this weekend: Queen Latifah hosts the first televised Hollywood Film Awards and Belle star Gugu Mbatha-Raw takes on another compelling role in Gina Prince Bythewood’s Beyond the Lights. (If you haven’t seen Belle, do yourself a favor and buy/order it on demand.)  Miss Lauryn Hill, Ms. Patti Labelle and Ms. […]

  Everybody loves the weekend, and this weekend one of the first really cool ones on the East Coast at least, it’s time to boo up. If you already have that significant other you can choose between the NFL  Or NBA on TV or a series of hot concerts all around the country. Usher is […]

For iPhone:   Dear Black People: if Dear White People is in your city this weekend, it’s a great date night movie. It’s funny and will remind you somewhat of a mashup of School Daze and Higher Learning with a little Hollywood Shuffle backstory thrown in. Writer/director Justin Simien did the modern-day version of charging the […]

 This weekend, Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua reunite in their second movie together after Training Day. Washington is a retired badass who returns to his former life of violence to avenge a young woman. Think Man On Fire with more guns. In the concert realm, Outkast is back and this weekend, they’re in their own hometown […]

It’s the last holiday weekend of the year so if you haven’t done your Back To School shopping, well, we feel sorry for ya! There’s still a little time if you can get past all the entertianment offerings this weekend. HBCU Football Classic season kicks off this weekend and fans in Houston and Orlando will […]

Queen B, this year’s top nominee, will hit the stage this Sunday at the MTV Video Music Awards. We’re thinking that Beyonce, who has yet to speak publicly about that elevator situation (unless you count the line in the “Flawless” remix) or said anything about breakup rumors with Jay-Z, might have a very interesting acceptance […]

Wesley Snipes is back in the third and latest installment of the Expendables franchise and we’re not mad about that. He joins Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham in the action adventure film where the good guys try to overcome the bad guys and a lot of things blow up. Got it? If you’re chilling at […]

It’s a Cole world out here. Keyshia Cole may be having relationship problems but her singing skills are intact. She’s hitting the road this weekend to perform her latest music which includes the sexy “self-love” video “She.” While Cole is working hard, so is Zane, whose new book The Other Side of The Pillow is […]

The Rock has made a successful transition from wrestling stardom to serious acting. He’s played in the Fast and The Furious movies done mainstream acting films like The Mummy Returns and The Scorpion King and in a few underrated gems along the way like Snitch and Gridiron Gang. This time, he’s taking on Greek mythology […]
