1. Irv Gotti is back. The Murder Inc. founder/ hip hop and R&B producer has created an interesting yet simple way to look at hiphop onto your tv screen starting summer ’17. Salute to B.E.T. for picking up the brilliant show. And an even harder salute to Jay Z for picking up the show in its full-unedited directors cut version to stream on Tidal 30 days after the original B.E.T. air date.

The show is called Tales. Only 2 of the episodes are directed by Irv Gotti. The show takes hot hiphop songs and turns the song into a full hour episode. Each show has a different director with professional screen writers and different cast.

Yeah, a show you don’t have to watch from season 1 episode 1 to understand. That’s genius.

Some of the first season rap songs turned into episodes include music by N.W.A., Nas, Notorious B.I.G., Meek Mill, Mary J. Blige, Method Man and more.

What rap song do you want to see on Tales?

Season premier is June 27th on B.E.T.

“I told Jay-Z this idea is so simple and you’re gonna say why didn’t I think of it first.” – Irv Gotti
