Black Panther ‘s Killmonger and Why I Get His Anger!

–SPOILER ALERT– Yes, Black Panther is killing it at the box office. The movie only confirms what some of us has known for years, that we are some dope ass people!  It’s nice to see that displayed on the big screen for a change. All of the characters in Black Panther were well thought out and developed. However, there was one character, Erik Killmonger  the villain, played brilliantly by  Jordan B.

Cherry kick started the idea of honoring Janet Jackson in light of the NFL supposedly banning Janet but invited Justin Timberlake back to perform at this year’s Super Bowl in Minneapolis.

Negro Please: Jill Scott’s Estranged Husband seeking $500,000

Yes, Jill Scott’s estranged husband gets the “Negro Please” award, asking for $500,000 for  alleged “pain and suffering” as reported by Madamenoire.  I recall reading some statements he made earlier in an exclusive interview with Bossip during the year in the early stages of the breakdown of the relationship.
