Chris Brown comments on Rihanna’s instagram status. In the photo Rihanna was wearing lingerie from her Fenty x Savage line. Although they broke up back in 2009 they seem to have settle their differences.
Official! Everything I put my name on has to rise to that level…. where I’m from if you ain’t “official” you ain’t nothing. This too applies to storytelling and especially in the way of movies and TV which reach a wide audience. It’s hard to tell certain truths when folks are used to seeing lies and being “programmed” all their lives. Just know I stand by truths when I’m telling a story and I’ve always made a commitment to keep it real. Anything else is beneath me. @snowfallfx
My blogger buddy The Jasmine Brand spilled some tea about the Tupac movie coming out this weekend, All Eyez on Me! She said new details have surfaced as to why John Singleton is not producing All Eyez On Me, the film about the late rapper Tupac. The film’s producer LT Hutton says that ultimately they had creative differences with Singleton. In fact, Hutton says that Singleton wanted to add a scene where Pac got raped in prison. He also says that Singleton wanted to add an anal scene as well. Hutton explains,
The raped in jail stuff – yeah, he wanted to put that in there….He wanted to start the movie off: Tupac goes in the studio – one guys in the studio, he’s getting head….Tupac is with the other girl and these girls are white and Tupac tries to give her anal.
Now first of all anal wasn’t even around at that type of time — it wasn’t cool yet.
Continuing with how Singleton wanted to do the scene, he adds,
The girl denies him [Tupac]. He kicks her out. And he tells the white girls to Go home to tell your dad you got f*cked by a n*gga today. End scene.
What movie is that bro?
Hutton also hints that Singleton was fired from the project. See the clips below.
Tupac had a habit he just couldn’t kick, and we can’t blame him! We got Young Noble out a member of ‘Pac’s group, Outlawz, and we asked him to drop one secret about Makaveli people don’t know yet.
Tupac Shakur, would have been 45 years old today. The love and respect on his name is impeccable this morning. Tupac’s legacy, words, and mentality have changed the game in the music industry and we miss him so much!
Tupac influenced and inspired an entire generation to change for the better and to encourage people to be better human beings, steering away from the parts of society where there is no hope. The times where music no matter the genre, told a story and spoke on the real ongoing issues affecting society was definitely Tupac’s time. What is your favorite Pac song?
I know without hesitation my two favorite are: “Keep Ya Head Up” and “Dear Mama”. These songs really hit home because it addresses the issues no one speaks on and/or pretend to care about for a moment to satisfy the media. In these songs, Tupac brings attention to the way we treat our women. We always have campaigns for “saving our sons” (which I have nothing against) , but remember we wouldn’t have sons if we didn’t have women.
Women need to be appreciated for bringing you into this world and also for going through things the male species could never. The respect starts with ourselves but it doesn’t help for the men to be so against supporting women, and especially in the African-American community. This is what Tupac was trying to get across because it is key to progression as a nation.
Happy Birthday Tupac!
Thank you for dropping your seeds, we will not let them go in vain because we know what your goal was and it will be honored and executed!
All true artists take note, if you haven’t already.

The murder of Tupac Shakur shocked the hip hop world to its core. Over 20 years later the answer to who killed Tupac on that Las Vegas strip back in 1996 is still a mystery. Everything from Suge Knight being involved, even though he was in the same car as Shakur, to him faking his death and living in Cuba are all theories fans have discussed over the years.
Suge Knight sits in jail for allegedly murdering Terry Carter after he was run over by a vehicle. The former CEO of Death Row Records went to the set of Straight Outta Compton and then things took a turn for the worst. This of course is not Knight’s first run in with the law.
