    From A Tribe Called Quest to the small screen; Q-Tip has joined forces with the stars from Wolf Of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. These three men have decided to create a scripted TV Series that will be based on Q-Tip’s experiences in the Hip Hop game as a member of The Native Tongues.

    Q-Tip and Leo have been very close friends for quite some time so it’s no surprise that these two have decided to do business together. DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, is expected to shop the show to multiple networks this week.

  3. Google’s New Feature Equals = Spam Heaven

    As if we don’t get enough spam mail already! If you’re a Gmail users you more than likely have a Google+ account, so you may start noticing some unfamiliar and maybe unwanted names and faces in your email account.

    With a new update on Gmail, Google+ account users will be able to send emails to your email address without you having to give them your email address. However, even though complete strangers are able to email you, your actual address won’t show up unless you respond and vice versa with the strangers email. This still doesn’t take away from the fact that this is opening up accounts to unnecessary spam.

    Probably being almost every “known” persons nightmare in any industry, seeing how their email inboxes are always being flooded with some time of inquiry or request, there is some hope. Once the new feature is available users will be able to limit who can email them through Google+. Again more hassle and the fight against spam continues.

    Is it really necessary for Google+ to expose users information to everyone? Will security concerned Gmail users switch email providers or tough it out?

    On November 30th, 2013 Paul Walker, a beloved actor in the Fast & Furious franchise was killed along with his good frend and driver of the ill fated car. It is a crazy coincidence Paul Walker died of a freak car accident seeing that the franchise promotes racing. According to police reports the Fast & Furious actor was going at least 100 mph before the crash.

    Today the key players meet to discuss the fate of the franchise, says supporting star in the series, Vin Diesel.

    “P.s. Tomorrow we meet with the studio, regarding the future of the Fast saga … and the completion of seven,” he said.

    Vin Diesel announced on his verified Facebook account late Thursday night that is was time to decide what will become of the movie series. Regardless of what they do with the Fast & Furious 7 and beyond, Paul will never be forgotten and will be remembered for being a genuinely nice guy. We wish his daughter, family, and friends the best as they navigate these tough times.

    This fan is taking fantasy football a little too literal!

    The San Diego Chargers are getting ready to go head up with the Denver Broncos in the divisional round of the 2013-14 NFL playoffs after beating the Cincinnati Bengals last week, but one person in particular feels like the Chargers shouldn’t have even made it to post season and is taking action!

    Extreme football fan, Daniel L. Spuck, filed a motion against the NFL in attempt to stop or delay the playoffs from starting. Basing his suit on a missed penalty call in Week 17 during the Bolts vs. Kansas City Chiefs, Mr. Spuck is showing clear signs of sports addiction. The reason behind his suit was based on the fact the Chargers got into the playoffs over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Mr. Daniel Spuck seems to be a bit delusional, don’t you think? Check out the entire story here.

    Chris Brown was back in court Wednesday (Jan. 8th) regarding his assault case from last year in October. Brown was offered a plea deal at the hearing in Washington, D.C. to plead guilty to simple assault in order to lessen his misdemeanor assault charge, but the singer said “no deal”.

    Chris Brown’s lawyer, Mark Gerogos is refusing the deal because he feels as if his client did nothing wrong and he is waiting on surveillance footage from the police.

    Brown is due back in court February 20th, 2014.

    Chris Brown has been very acquainted with the law lately. Will the surveillance footage save him or cause him more trouble?

    ‘Saturday Night Live’ is starting to add what some would say, some much needed diversity, to their staff. After recently announcing their first black female regular cast member since Maya Rudolph, Sasheer Zamata, SNL just added two new African American ladies as sketch writers.

    Lakendra Tookes and Leslie Jones are reportedly the newest team members to the ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch writing team. The change in cast came after ‘Saturday Night Live’ was under a lot of pressure about not having African American cast members.

    Make sure you check out the back story on the first black regular cast member on ‘Saturday Night Live’ in 6 years here.
