Jaleel White famously known for his mega star role during his teen years on one of the number sitcoms of it’s time “Family Matters”, has recently surfaced in the media. He has been hit with a lot of questions regarding about what has he been up to since the show ended thirteen years ago. So it bothered him that people think he has just been laying around and not working. Which is the contrary, he has been involved in acting-production-writing.

Jaleel recently released a statement:

“I definitely have several more chapters left in my career. For all the people who play the ‘Where is he now?’ game with me, it’s kind of tough to swallow sometimes, only because I know how young I’ve been throughout that, and how young I still am. So you kind of have to just take it with a grain of salt and just be like, ‘Okay, the chapters will happen as they happen.’ But at least for a man in Hollywood, I’m still very, very young.” READ MORE

So recently 50 Cent has been doing new things and building his rep. From taking his acting career to the next level and the desire to earn the respect of a Samuel Jackson or Denzel.

“It’s still 50 Cent … I just want to create something that’s out of the box, that ain’t [my] same style of music or same kinds of music. I’m using different song formats…it’s still hip-hop music, it’s still 50 Cent content, it’s just written in a different way”

The book called Go the F*** to Sleep isn’t a childrens book but a book for parents who want their kids to go the F*** to sleep. Written by Adam Mansbach profane, affectionate, and radically honest verses perfectly capture the familiar – and unspoken – tribulations of putting your little rugrat down for the night. Letting parents know its ok to be frustrated and laugh about the crazy things your kids do day-in and day-out.

Known for some infamous movie lines Mr. Jackson was Mansbach’s first choice to Narrate his book. He even has a simular line to the title in his film Snakes On A Plane.

Jackson explained in the narration before reading the text of the book: READ MORE
