Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson star in No Good Deed, the tale of what happens when a criminal escapes from prison and finds his way into an unsuspecting woman's home. We've seen this story before but with a full African-American cast, and no Tyler Perry involvement, it feels like a fresh idea and a worthy watch. Plus the stars make for pretty great eye candy, which I think the production team knew would be good for the big screen.


I was first introduced to Jhené Aiko on Kendrick Lamar's "Growing Apart." Her voice is gentle and somewhat tinged with a sultriness that often encroaches on cutting aggression. Aiko understands where to emphasize her voice, wrapping it around the lyrics to achieve a hypnotic mix of hip hop and R&B. Souled Out, the debut from the singer is made up of mid-temp melodies that emerge as freestyles, rather than songs. This is not a bad thing because Aiko has stated that her process of recording music is one of letting it unfold rather than rushing.

Originality is such a hard thing to come by these days that it’s no wonder you’ll see so many movies, TV shows and music that look and sound the same.
 When is the last time you heard a song or movie that you couldn’t compare to something else prior? Probably never. That doesn’t mean that originality or creativity has died, but just means that people have a brand new way of seeing things. One of the greatest movies of all times, Star Wars is often compared to Star Trek. They have forums of geeks and nerds sighting the familiarities between these two, I’ll save you the time and say that I’ve seen all the Star Wars series and none of the Star Trek franchise despite their many TV shows and spin-off movies but I'm aware of how they tend to overlap each other in some aspects.


Blacc Hollywood is the fifth studio album from Wiz Khalifa - the rapper known for creating chill songs about getting high and living the high life. Being more of a fan of his mixtapes because he seems to offer more impactful, heavy-hitting rhymes on those, listening to Blacc Hollywood solidified my opinion even further.


Fresh off the stage of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, performing alongside Beyoncé, Alvester Martin—dancer, singer, and songwriter has been accustomed to a dim limelight for many years as a back up dancer for several top celebrities.  But it’s the bright spotlight he better get ready for!


Being born in the 90’s certainly touched the new up and coming triple-threat artist Jo’zzy aka @dopebyaccident in a special way. She’s the protégé’ of super producer Timbaland and a talented singer/songwriter/rapper. Not only is the 90’s an inspiration and influence, but a way of life for this 24 year old; whose real name is Jocelyn Donald. She says of new single “Tryna Wife”, “It’s just nostalgic music and only the beginning. Some of today’s R&B and Hip-Hop can be so watered down and cookie-cutter, but my style of music makes you think of the 90’s.”

Some individuals require no introduction. Unless you've been living under a rock for the last 20 years you're familiar with the Marc Eckō brand, one that grew from a rhino on clothing with Eckō Unlimited to now dealing with video games, a publishing division and so much more.  Having created a million dollar empire, Marc Milecofsky, a Lakewood, New Jersey native is one of the great entrepreneurs of our generation. A conversation with him yields a different kind of honesty however, about life, business and the importance of a brand. Marc's openness about his failures and his missteps provide more insight than an entire catalog of self-help and how-to books. The journey from playing with graffiti designs in his parent’s basement to what we know now as the Marc Eckō Enterprises brand can provide inspiration to even the most terrified of potential innovators. Our interview is just the tip of the iceberg.

If you’re an avid reader, you’ve probably heard of Miasha. She introduced herself to many in 2006 with her debut novel, Secret Society. Her debut received rave reviews and an array of national press including BET, CBS, CNN and The Wendy Williams Experience. Oh but, Miasha didn’t stop there. In 2008 she and her husband Rich Coleman, produced the stage play adaptation of Secret Society. The show sold out every date and venue and went on tour in 2009. I can go on and on about the success she’s achieved but this interview is not quite about her this time around. It’s about the Rich Boys-Ace and Amir Coleman. Those are her sons –determined entrepreneurs in their own right. That’s quite impressive considering that they’re just 9 and 4 years old. Yes, these Rich Boys are following in their mother’s footsteps. Rich Boys is the name of their clothing line, a line “For Boys Who Just Like To Look Fly.” There’s a powerful message behind their movement. Read the interview to learn more.
