Well, it is Throwback Thursday here at the Brew. First, the New Edition news and now this. ’90s R&B group Jodeci is back on the scene with a new video AND album. They just debuted their Hype Williams-directed vidja on Facebook (yes, Hype… it’s 1994 all over again up in this piece). Take a look. Taste the Brew to watch
Real New Edition stans go hard for the boys from Boston. So hard that we travel and make life plans around concert dates. So, it’s no surprise that a group of die-hard fan-filmmakers decided that since there was no film about the group, they’d just make their own. Now, the fruits of their labor are circling the web. Writer/director Bobby Huntley hopes if there’s enough fan reaction to make the “N.E. Heartbreak The Movement” clip go viral, that he can get a real film popping off. Huntley set up a website to drum up fan interest and spread the word about his mission.
NE Heartbreak The Movement is a “labor of love” mission, set up by a creative team of New Edition fans, to produce an authentic biopic, that will tell a sincere and honest narrative, of the lives and journey of New Edition. NE Heartbreak The Movement has already put together a “sneak peek” trailer for you to enjoy and our main objective, is to be the production team entrusted to tell the story of 6 young men, who had a dream of success, happiness & music. The New Edition story deserves to be told, YOU can help us tell it and here’s how:
If you are a true admirer and die hard fan of this amazing group, then you are already a part of this movement; just help spread the word that ‘The Movement’ is here. Share the video on your Social Media pages, answer our Poll questions and Follow our Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. It’s that simple & NE Heartbreak The Movement Has Begun!
It’s not exactly clear to me how making the video viral is going to turn into a full-on production, but take a look at what they’ve made. Taste the Brew to watch
The Canadians ain’t checkin’ for Breezy. Chris Brown’s two shows up nawth have been chucked. His “Between the Sheets” tour (with Trey Songz & baby R Kelly Tyga) was headed to Montreal and Toronto, but Canadian officials denied Brown entry into their country, just hours before the Montreal show. Promoters say the ban was due to “immigration issues,” but, um, we know the truth.
What in the Annalise Keating hayle happened today??? Not only does Amber Rose hail from my home state, but she solidified her status in my heart by taking down one of the Kardashian brothers on Twits for Twats.
Now all this black on black crime started when Amber appeared on The Breakfast Club. One of them mofos ASKED Amber her opinion on the whole Tyga/Kylie Jenner situation and she RESPONDED – but (*no pun intended*) her ire wasn’t aimed at Kylie or her Krazy ass Klan (*pun intended*), it was solely aimed at Tyga’s nassy arse!
So Khloe gets wind of the interview and tried it on Twitter. BIG MAN FAILED! Little did he know that just because you and your sister led a mini Million Man March you cannot read someone who grew up in #SOUTHPHILLY #FACT!
“I was a stripper since I was 15 years old,” Amber Rose told Foxx. Please don’t worry about my sister who has a career & her shit (1)
these people. I don’t know Amber so why would I comment on her. I’m not going to comment on someone I don’t know. (2)
No Cherban. Just no. You grew up drinking Perrier. YOU CANNOT ISSUE A READ! YOU CANNOT! #FACT Khloe probably told him to take the “g” off of “hating” because that how all her black men say it. SUCH A STUNT QUEEN!
Then Muva Mortal Kombated the Kardashians with this:
Did Amber bone up (no pun intended) on some type of Shaolin 50 rules of mind warfare combat manual? Maybe she watched “8 Mile”? Remember when Rabbit was battling Papa-Doc for the final time? Rabbit AIRED OUT ALL HIS DIRTY WHITE TRASH BUSINESS FIRST HUNTIES then passed the mic! Papa-Doc had nada, just like Khloe.
BET is jumping into the mini-series genre with the three-part series, The Book of Negroes. The actual Book of Negroes is housed at the National Archives. The document lists the names of thousands of slaves who helped the British during the American Revolution. As a result, the people on the list made their way north to be granted passage by the British. The series is based on a novel with the same title by Lawrence Hill.
A little background on the series, from BET:
Based on the award-winning novel by Lawrence Hill, The Book of Negroes tells the story of Aminata Diallo after her capture and the pain she endured as part of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Starring Aunjanue Ellis as well as Cuba Gooding Jr. and Louis Gossett Jr., The Book of Negroes will premiere as an epic miniseries that highlights Aminata’s powerful journey.
