How Hip Hop Changed the World - Idris Elba

 This programme is so irritating that the  once cool Idris Elba is looking like an unwashed corner MF. Sorry, this ain't personal but I can't be watching the sanctimonious rubbish regarding hiphop! Its chart count down of important moments of hip hop. And guess who gets number one? Chris Martin's BFF and soon to be a daddy.

Yes I'm a hip hop fan. Anyway Idris Elba is presenting this rubbish with a lot of Smart Alec comments and a self righteous moralistic hip hop tone of the purist. On top of it he has Westwood. Don't get me wrong I love me some Timothy Westwood and I know the dude had earned strips. But it's so cliche. Then there is Westie talking all street but then again he is Britain Granddaddy of Hip Hop. Anyway Westie is excellent at the game which is why the dude is still TOP DOG in the game over in the UK - I love the way he says 'Your boy, Westwood." Errr... I don't think so - a bit too old for that sort of chat ain't we?. He's being DJing from back in the day. Nothing like trance or house for our main man Westie. Not gotta be straight up hip hop.

Any Elba is just majorly irritating but he is esciplised by the stupid comment of Noel  Clarke (famed director of Kidulthoond - I think needs a bit of a history lession before opening his mouth and not 'media studies' that doesn't count. Love his movie though!). Saying the Boys in Hood was the first kind of that movie. There has always been a black cinema in the States - I can't even start to defend stupidness so I'm not going to start now.

Anyway it's an entertaining programme but will wind up any one who know a bit about the real history of hip hop. As I said it's sanctimonious toilet flush waste but on the lighter side it's good entertainment and as always one always learn something new.

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker. 

Uncle Phat Farm Russ goes crazy and yell…

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco

Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.

 For the hundredth time in the show Dawn Ro…
