talib kweli don lemon

Talib Kweli is the latest rapper to make the trip down to Ferguson, Missouri to mourn the death of Mike Brown and show support to the community. Never one to bite his tongue, the Brooklyn MC made an appearance on CNN earlier today, where he took Don Lemon — who isn’t exactly wildly popular among black viewers — to task.

Right off the bat, Talib put the media on blast for presenting an inaccurate narrative of events in Ferguson. Naturally, Lemon disagreed with him and claimed that his network have “done really great coverage here,” which is when Kweli took the safety off and let the chopper fly. At one point, while being continuously interrupted by Lemon, Kweli even walked off camera and threatened to leave the interview.

john oliver ferguson

If you’re unfamiliar with the show Last Week Tonight, it involves British comedian John Oliver trying to make sense of some of the most alarming, ludicrous or indeed immoral things taking place in the US. And during last night’s segment, Oliver turned his dry wit and sharp judgement to the depressing situation in Ferguson, MO — specifically, why the hell does the police have armored vehicles and assault rifles for peaceful protests?

bad boys 3

11 years after Bad Boys 2, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are teaming up for the third installment in their popular shoot ‘em up series. During a predictably hilarious appearance on Conan last night, Lawrence confirmed what we’ve all been waiting to hear by announcing that Bad Boys 3 is in the works. The 49-year-old actor revealed that he spoke with Jerry Bruckheimer (producer of the first two Bad Boys) this week, who said that the project is “real” and a script is close to completion.

Now, there’s been talk of Bad Boys 3 happening for a few years already, with Martin dropping hints as early as 2011, but this is the most promising development so far. Bad Boys for life. Word to Puff.

larry-king-khaled

Late pass, but this was too funny to miss. Last week, Larry King interviewed DJ Khaled for his Larry King Now series, and it was as hilarious and predictable as you can imagine. Throughout their 20-minute conversation, the Miami mogul stood loud and proud on his proverbial soapbox as he compared himself to Barry Gordy and Quincy Jones, likened his long-time understudy Ace Hood to Nas, and even got Larry to plug his “We the Best” label, although not quite with the same enthusiasm.

Khaled being Khaled, he never once broke character, but there was also some rare flashes of actual personal insight as he talked about juggling the rap lifestyle with his Muslim faith and returning to the Middle East for the first time in 30 years. But then Khaled forced his new We The Best Sound headphones on old Larry, so it was swiftly back to business.
