SIGHTING: Drake Bowls in Houston

SIGHTING: Drake Bowls in Houston

For the second time this week, Drake was spotted at Bowlmor Houston. Last night, he and his friends, including rapper Slim Thug, Lil Keke and James Prince Jr. (who, by the way, discovered Drake) sipped on Grey Goose and Grapefruit (a change up from Drake’s staple drink of white wine spritzers). The group bowled a few frames in the private VIP area.

 

We hear Champagne Papi and his friends gathered to celebrate the life of “Big Toni,” who was a bodyguard for many celebrities, like Drake and James Harden.

[CONCERT SERIES] Yellow Claw Conquers Space City

[CONCERT SERIES] Yellow Claw Conquers Space City

 

Our peeps in L.A. hit us and asked us to Drop in on Yellow Claw Saturday night in support of their sophomore effort Los Amsterdam. The mood was electric as we walked through the parking lot, and ran into a couple hundred fans buzzing with anticipation as they anxiously waited to get in the building. The heady performance was kicked off with a spectacular light show underscored by heart pounding, pulse quickening beats. Jim Aasgier and Nizzle masterfully controlled the crowd’s mood and energy as if it were an instrument in and of itself.  They artfully stoked the rising tide of excitement until it could no longer be contained and it erupted; unleashing  holy hell in Houston’s Stereo Live, leaving the crowd drenched in sweat and tingling as if released from the grip of gravity to be carried off into the weightlessness of space (city).

Los Amsterdam features the TOP 10 Billboard Dance Chart hit “Good Day (feat. DJ Snake + Elliphant).” LP also features collaborations with Juicy J, Quavo of Migos, Lil Debbie, Moski, Jonna Fraser, Rochelle, Tinie Tempah and Cesqeaux, and the pair have accumulated over 470+ million streams on Spotify and 415+ million plays on YouTube to date….as you can see, the show was lit🔥

[REVIEW] Curious About Kurios?

[REVIEW] Curious About Kurios?

 

Kurios is sexy enough for a hot new date, but fun and eye-catching enough for the entire family.

This is not your ordinary clowns coming out of tiny cars, large animals tamed by a whip, or white faced mimes clowning around kinda circus.

This show is sleek and tantalizing; delivering a dream-like glimpse into the inside of the Seeker’s (mad scientist) imagination. Through the Seeker’s exhaustive imaginings we’re able to see acrobats, gymnasts, contortionists, singers, jugglers and more go back and forth in time with a futuristic​ steam punk flair.

There is even a little person, Mini Lili, that lives inside of another character’s belly (Microcosmos)..

Would you think a finger show would keep your attention? Ha! Theater of hands will do just that. Multiple hands take us through a lifetime worth of events in minutes. The mini-dramas are projected onto a cloud.

I have to say my favorite performance is of the group of fish a.k.a female contortionist bending and twisting on a giant hand.

Each scene and performance is completely unexpected and delightfully unusual. You will definitely leave with an expanded imagination and tons to talk about. There was so much more to see, and we know you’re Kurios, but we won’t ruin it for you.

New Film “Grow House” is the “How High” of 2017

New Film “Grow House” is the “How High” of 2017

There’s a boom in medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Californian and the U.S. These facilities have reached record numbers, cropping up like Starbucks or McDonald’s. States across the nation are legalizing medical and recreational marijuana. Our two unlikely heroes, Darius (DeRay Davis – “EMPIRE”, “21 Jump Street”, “GI Joe”) and Pat (Lil Duval – “Scary Movie 5″,”Meet the Blacks”), figure they can help the medical marijuana movement, but mainly help themselves by trying to grow their own cannabis and selling their crop to the dispensaries. Only one problem, knowing how to smoke weed doesn’t mean you know how to grow weed.

After taking a trip to “Dr. Doobie” (Malcolm McDowell – “Entourage”, “The Mentalist”, “Home Alone”) to become legally certified pot growers, they gain access to a Bel Air mansion to use as a “grow house.” Although they convince Snoop Dogg (played as himself) to fund their operation, our heroes soon discover what can grow wrong, will go wrong in this comedy of errors.

 

Soundtrack Available on Priority Records. New single “The Bong Song”

Netflix | Burning Sands: A Conversation with Imani Hakim
We sat and spoke with Imani Hakim about her upcoming role as Rochon in ,Burning Sands, a raw, voyeuristic journey of fraternity pledging through the eyes of one favored pledgee, who is torn between honoring a code of silence or standing up against the intensifying violence of underground hazing. Led by a breakthrough performance by Trevor Jackson, director Gerard McMurray’s feature directorial debut brings an emotional honesty to the classic tale of “rites of passage” and the complicated bonds of brotherhood.
Burning Sands also stars Trevor Jackson, Alfre Woodard, Steve Harris, Tosin Cole, DeRon Horton, Trevante Rhodes, Christian Robinson, Rotimi, Octavius Johnson, Malik Bazille, Mitchell Edwards, Serayah, and Nafessa Williams.

The Motivated Mom Tour Super Mom Super Bowl LI Luncheon Edition

The Motivated Mom Tour Super Mom Super Bowl LI Luncheon Edition

 

HOUSTON, TX, February 10, 2017—The Motivated Mom Tour Super Mom Super Bowl LI Luncheon Edition, powered by Prudential Financial, Inc., and supported by corporate partners Hilton Worldwide, Coca-Cola and BET Centric, scored a touchdown! in Houston, TX this past Super Bowl LI.  Over 100 attendees including moms, entrepreneurs and media professionals enjoyed a full afternoon of empowered networking at the chic red carpet event held at the Hess Club in the beautiful and bustling Galleria area.

Motivated mom Latoyia Dennis had the pleasure of hosting Johnette Patton (Usher Raymond’s mother), Crystal Wilson (Shanice’s mother), Rose Rock (Chris and Tony Rocks mother), Tyra Wardlow (Meagan Good’s mother), and Michele Thornton as the moderator on a panel geared towards women empowerment.

Women, but mothers in particular, are consumed by their kids, and tending to everyone else’s needs above their own. These moms said not today! It’s time to shift your thinking to self-restoration, and start living your BEST life! Yesss to that! A quote that resonated with me during the panel discussion was when Rose Rock, said “It’s never too late to start living your life! I’m 68, and my life isn’t over!” This really stayed with me because we all start some kind of life project that we feel isn’t quite where we want it to be, but hearing her say that gives me hope that it can get to my level of expectation.

There were all kinds of golden nuggets of information dropped throughout the evening. I really left feeling empowered and motivated to get started!
