There are a few leading men in the industry just love to see making moves and remaining relevant. Two of them near the top of our list are none other than Larenz Tate and Lance Gross!

Yep, these two stars are heating up Netflix with their new hit film, Deuces!

Deuces centers on a drug dealer of the same name, played by Larenz Tate. The man is a virtual drug lord who has his city on lock, earning him the ire of the local law enforcement and envy of those around him. Lance Gross is “Jason,” a new hustler on the streets trying to infiltrate Deuces’ crew. However, trust is a rare commodity as the heat intensifies on Deuces and his crew, putting the city’s most notorious criminal in an increasingly more dangerous and desperate spot. Check out the trailer below!

We definitely are feeling the hell out of this film!  The trailer looks amazing. Hopefully it will be picked up as a series as Netflix can never have too many original series. Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Productions  is definitely making some major moves! Thanks to Larenz’s role in the upcoming fourth season of Power, and Rotimi’s appearance on this film, however, you get a feel of Starz’ hit seriesThe cast of this film is what really draws you in, however. Rick Gonzalez, Meagan Good, La La Anthony, and Rotimi are amazing actors, and we cannot wait to give you a full review of the film. Flavor Unit’s deal with Netflix may very well usher in that Living Single reboot we have all been clamoring for! Only time will tell. Just be sure you tune in tomorrow April 1st!

The Japanese anime series from Masamune Shirow has made its way to the big screen. Ghost in the Shell is an action-packed film that shows a world where humanity ends and technology rules all.

#ThrowbackThursday- Crime Mob (@CrimeMobAtl)!

crime mob

 

Much has changed in Atlanta’s rap scene since Crime Mob released their breakout single, “Knuck If You Buck” back in 2004. Now a decade after the release of their last album, the pioneering crunk group has reunited and announced  new plans for 2017!

“Knuck If You Buck,” was the biggest song of their career and arguably the best song during that time frame. I think we all remember bouncing around the room or club to the beat. Since then, the group hasn’t released a single that can be considered an equivalent follow-up. During a recent concert over the weekend, sponsored by Atlanta’s radio show, the group did an interview with Big Tigger where they spoke about a brand new album that is coming this year.

3/28/2017- “In Blackest Night”

darkness

Hey Mikey,

I pride myself on being a pretty positive person and keeping optimistic, positive people around me at all times. Up until recently my best friend was one them. However, a few things have happened--break up, job loss, and health scare–that have turned him into this really dark, pessimistic person. He does not want to do any of the stuff we enjoyed before. It’s like he “can’t see the forest for the trees.” Being around him now is draining and I feel like his energy is tainting my own. I wanna keep being friends, but I do not know if I can or should if he does not snap out of this funk. Things happen in life. but I’ve found you can’t let them get to you and you just gotta keep it pushing. What should I do?

-The Ultimate Optimist

hope changes everything

***The Ultimate Optimist, your friend may be enduring his “Blackest Night” at the moment and your optimism and positivity may be a key factor as to why he is still trucking. Life happens in the best and worst ways; and sometimes depression is a result of that. Even optimists have their storms to endure. I advise you not to cut your friend off, but to point him to resources that can assist him. Remember he was optimistic and positive once, and he can be that way again. Be a hero, not a fair weather friend.
