TV: TUPAC AND AFENI SHAKUR DOCUSERIES COMING TO FX

The network has announced a new slate of documentary series, including one about Tupac and his mother Afeni Shakur. The network has greenlit Outlaw: The Saga of Afeni and Tupac Shakur, a five-episode series directed by Allen Hughes. (from the Hughes Brothers?)

“Told through the eyes of the people who knew them best, Outlaw is an intimate wide-angle portrait of the most inspiring and dangerous mother-son duo in American history, whose unified message of freedom, equality, persecution and justice are more relevant today than ever,” FX said in a press release.

Hughes previously directed HBO’s 2017 miniseries The Defiant Ones, which profiled Dr. Dre and Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine. According to Deadline, the director secured a deal with the Tupac Estate to access released and unreleased recordings, writings and poetry in May.

Last year, Hughes recalled some of his dealings with the Tupac Estate for his HBO series during an interview with The Wrap.

“The Tupac Estate was — and I know them, they’re all old friends — but there was some stuff with him at the gun range that they were precious about,” he said. “My original cut is not the way it [eventually aired]. The family and the estate were really sensitive about taking things out of context when it came to weapons in his hands, you know? He was at a shooting range and it was pretty explosive in the original cut, and they were very, very, very adamant that we not do it that way.”

FX hasn’t revealed a premiere date for Outlaw. An official announcement is expected in the coming months.

LaBodega: @Wale Says “I’m one of the greatest rappers” @DJGojabean

They say all publicity is good publicity.

Tuesday afternoon Aug. 6th Wale went to Twitter and inserted himself into the greatest-of-all-time debate.

With a couple of top 50 rappers lists going viral online, Wale felt it was time to assert his feelings as to where he belongs in rap’s totem pole.

“I’m one of the greatest rappers of all time. There I said it,” he said.

After paying $34.99 to get access to some in-flight WiFi, the DMV native continued: “Last album had one platinum and two gold singles …

I just don’t be talking my talk all the time cuz I got some things goin on in my head.. but what we not gon do is act like the hits haven’t been coming for ten years. Okurrrr.”

Wale reminded his followers of when Jay-Z included his name in the myriad of rappers that inspired him throughout his career back in 2017.

With all the chatter surrounding his name, the 34-year-old is headed toward the release of his sixth studio album at some point later this year.

Ebro Darden, co-host Peter Rosenberg and the Hot 97 morning show compiled a list of their top 50 rappers of all time, which has riled up Twitter users and seen thousands of angry replies.

Wale found a home on Ebro’s list, notching an appearance at No. 43, ahead of the likes of Kanye West, 50 Cent and Lupe Fiasco.

NEWS: DJ SPINDERELLA VS SALT N PEPA GOES TO MEDIATION

#GetSOM via @MsBoomNYC

Last month DJ Spinderella filed a lawsuit against her former Salt-N-Pepa members seeking monetary compensation for unpaid royalties. On Friday (August 2), a spokesperson for Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton, Rich French, released a statement revealing the case has been moved to mediation.

“A U.S. District Court Judge in the Dallas District today rejected DJ Spinderella’s requests for immediate relief against Salt-N-Pepa and its management, ordering the case to mediation,” French said in the statement.

We are grateful for the judge’s ruling as Salt-N-Pepa have been extremely generous to Spin over many decades and attempted to settle what amounts to a divorce, both peacefully and without rancor.

In May, Spin revealed she wouldn’t be touring with Salt-N-Pepa as part of the New Kids On The Block: The Mixtape Tour and claimed the other two members had sent her packing.

“I’m deeply saddened to share with all the #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella fans that I will not be performing on the #NKOTB Mixtape Tour,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “Despite my participation in promoting the tour and being highly publicized as one of the acts, in January 2019 I received a ‘termination’ email from #SaltnPepa excluding me from performances with the group.”
