Back in August, South Florida hip-hop duo The Vagabonds opened for Def Jam’s very own Big K.R.I.T. at the Ritz Ybor in Tampa’s historic Ybor City district. In the above video, Vagabonds MC/producer E.R. recaps the group’s experience performing with K.R.I.T., as well as other artists such as Big Sant, Tito Lopez, and Casey Veggies. [...]

If you are always in the South Beach party scene, or you’ve listened to the GUESTLIST Official Mixtape, then you are already familiar with DJ Sage. Not only is he a dope DJ, he’s a good friend, and an amazing educator known to his students as Mr. G. The above video documents the creative lengths [...]

Hey, look, I don’t care if you order it from Amazon or Barnes and Noble or directly from me. Just know that the long-awaited hardcover edition of GUESTLIST is now available! For those who have been waiting on me to sell autographed copies of GUESTLIST again, here you go. I’m only autographing hardcover editions, though, [...]

Okay, this looks interesting. Tyler Perry, he who acts, writes, and directs in those oh-so-hilarious Madea movies that black folks love oh-so-much, is starring in the reboot of the Alex Cross film series, which is, naturally, entitled Alex Cross.

James‘ fanfic-cum-literary smut smash Fifty Shades of Grey: In a parody Mother’s Day commercial for Amazon.com, moms are surprised by their gift-giving spouses and kids as they’re getting all sexed up reading the erotic [...]

Check out the trailer for The Life & Ties of No One in Particular, the upcoming novel from author Jamie White. The novel tells the story of Clarissa, a muse who has spent centuries trying to inspire artists who are sometimes too stubborn to listen to her. Now, she’s decided to tell her side of the [...]

As you should know by now, my favorite book of all-time is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It’s a classic tale of status, wealth, ambition, and (most of all) love. The 70s film version starring Robert Redford will always be cool, but now Baz Luhrmann has decided to give the jazz age story a [...]

The new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has been released and it’s … okay, I suppose. At least we can understand what the hell Tom Hardy’s villain Bane is saying in this one. We also get a whole lot of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman. Share this:

My adoration for Nicki Minaj is well-documented. So of course I was gonna post the video to her hit single “Starships,” off her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Enjoy! Share this:
