England’s schizophrenic climate has been doing my head in so I will be flying off to the sunshine state of Miami this week, home to 1980s TV icons Crockett and Tubbs (I suggest you 80s and 90s babies check out the CLASSIC that is Miami Vice).
South Beach here I come!!!
Normal blogging will resume after May 28th.
VIDEO: RESPECTED HIP HOP PRODUCER DJ PREMIER TELLS TALE OF GROUPIE ‘SEXUAL ENCOUNTERS’ WHILE WORKING WITH THE NOTORIOUS BIG
During DJ Cipha Sounds ‘Take It Personal’ improv show the legendary Hip Hop producer DJ Premier aka Premo talks about the time he worked with the Notorious BIG and shared women with the late rapper.
Premier says this incident happened while Biggie was in the studio working on his debut album Ready To Die in 1995. But I think he has his dates wrong because Ready To Die was released in 1994, so Biggie would have been working on it throughout 1993.
Anyway I was a fan of Biggie and I am also a fan of Premier’s past work, but the thought of the two of them sharing and receiving fellatio from desperate sad young women just made my stomach turn this morning. But at least this distasteful story went down well with the dressed down industry types sitting in room, who laughed like this was the funniest story they had heard in years.
A look at the life of Eugene Allen, who served eight presidents as the White House’s head butler from 1952 to 1986, and had a unique front-row seat as political and racial history was made.
The film also stars British actor Aml Ameen.
Check out my interview with the brilliant new online magazine The Portfolio (May 2013 issue).

The revelation that Snoop Dogg turned fake Rastafarian used to be a pimp does not surprise me at all. When this married man and father of three started dabbling in the world of porn and making films on his property (against his wife Shante’s wishes), then moved on to hanging out with the biggest pimp of them all Hugh Hefner and then ran around town with that dirty sack of a reptile Don “Magic” Juan’ ( a former pimp who revels in his murky past), I knew there was something dark and even more sinister going on beneath the surface too.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone the 41 year old reveals:
I put an organisation together. I did a Playboy tour, and I had a bus follow me with ten bitches on it. I could fire a bitch, fu*k a bitch, get a new ho: It was my program. City to city, titty to titty, hotel room to hotel room, athlete to athlete, entertainer to entertainer.
“If I’m in a city where the Denver Broncos or the Nuggets play, I get a couple of they players to come hang out, pick and choose, and whichever one you like comes with a number. A lot of athletes bought pu**y from me.’
‘I’d act like I’d take the money from the bitch, but I’d let her have it. It was never about the money; it was about the fascination of being a pimp.
‘As a kid I dreamed of being a pimp, I dreamed of having cars and clothes and bitches to match. I said, “Fu*k it – I’m finna do it.”
Is this really something to boast about?
Instead of encouraging those women to leave that depressing lifestyle behind he chose to exploit them further, all because he wanted to fulfil some sick pimp fantasy. And I am willing to bet that a few of those prostitutes were probably underage.
Snoop has slowly morphed in to a disgusting and creepy middle-aged fool.
I posted news about this film in 2011 when there was a casting call for Somali actors to play the pirates. And now the ’Captain Phillips’ story is finally here in all it’s “Hollywood glory”.
The true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.
Hmmmm…… I can already see where this is likely to go but I will try to reserve judgement until I have actually seen the film.
