The real Slim Shady just stood up with Campaign Speech.  If this is a taste of what the new album is like it’s going to be fire.  The young MC still has a lot to say, through the vicissitudes of life he has survived and is now ready the remind the world of his metaphorical gift.

The single is a “Hot Buttered Soulish – 7:47, and scratches itches like George Zimmerman, Dillon Roof, Stacy Dash and a clear political caveat.  The new music is Eminem’s first since 2013.

TV Network BET is facing a lawsuit filed by Gabrielle Union on Tuesday over her Being Mary Jane contract.  The actress says the network attempted to stiff her on a portion of her pay by combining seasons four and five according to reports. 

The critically acclaimed series started back in 2013, it’s a story line that follows a TV new anchor.  Union’s lawsuit says the network agreed to never produce more than 13 episodes per season.  She was assured for season 4 a salary of $150,000 per episode and for season 5 $165,000 per show. 

The network tried to produce two 10-episode seasons to be aired all in season 4 and that attempt has the actress crying foul.   She is suing BET and Breakdown Productions for negligent misrepresentation and breach of contract.

The very talented Jordan Peele of Comedy Central’s hit sketch “Key & Peele” is popular among laugh fans, but has changed directions in his film directorial debut which happens to be horror.  The movie entitled “Get Out” stars Allison Williams and Daniel Kaluuya. 

The movie focuses of a Black man who meets his white girlfriend’s family for the first time in a suburban setting, when things turn out to be not what it appears. 

I’m not a fan of many of the sketch pieces popularized by the comedic duo, this horror film might be worth watching.  Here is a look.

In a recent interview the actor who portrayed the wizard Harry Potter said, he still has most of the $100 million he made from the role.  The 27-year-old said, "I don't really do anything with my money," he continued, "I'm very grateful for it, because having money means you don't have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom career-wise."

While the actor stopped short of saying he would not play the role of the lovable wizard again, he said he prefers to play characters that interest him in an artistic way.   

He proclaimed his love for his job and said he would like to do it until he dies – not only to death but he said that he would like die on the set.  What a commitment.

Danny Brown released “Atrocity Exhibition,” to critical acclaim, and his sophomore album on new record label, Warp Records.     For off-track people who love music Atrocity Exhibition is ear candy.  This would have to be considered hip hop on steroids. 

Expect Danny Brown to be the toast of 2016.
