Thugs and the Women who Love Em

Lets get into it. Another day on the celebrity circuit and we are hit with a new play filled with has beens, was beens, and ain’t beens!

Thugs and the Women who Love Em

Where do you go when the hood is all you know? That’s the question facing four friends as they navigate the sex and crime filled streets of the only home they’ve ever known.

Lisa wants out, desperately. Not just out of her neighborhood but away from the men that rule it. She’s had enough of the hustlers and pimps and drug dealers who offer nothing but short term pleasure…and long term pain.
Shawn? Please…she ain’t goin nowhere. The hood is where Shawn belongs and she’s definitely not afraid to show it. She runs game with the best of em and is quick to take advantage of any hustler who makes the mistake of thinking she can be played.
Kelly and Candace are tired of the hustlers and the thugs and all of the drama they bring. What they can’t let go of is the way these dudes put it down in the bedroom. They call it “Thug Love” and the two of them can’t get enough.
Four different perspectives from four extraordinary women who’ve built a sisterhood through some very difficult times. Now, one by one, each of them will be asked to choose between the men they love and the life they want. Are they really four strong, independent, black women ready to write their own story and be the stars of their own lives? Or are they destined forever to be nothing more than co-stars in somebody else’s script…nothing more than Thugs and the Women Who Love Them.

No shade, the cast isn’t the worse, we just don’t know how we feel about these individuals on stage. This could have possibly been better in a film format. Nevertheless, will you be going?

Juvenile and Mystikal on Tour

Listen! No Shade! Butttttttttttt….. Wassup with the Hood Uncle Tour? On top of that it’s titled “If It Ain’t Live” Tour. Ummmmmm, what is going to be Live? Juvenile is 117 and Mystikal betta not be trying to have a Bytch “Shake It Fast” before he hurts his back. Ha!

In any case, for those who might wanna go see Uncle Juve and Uncle Mysti!

New Orleans natives and hip-hop heavy hitters take the stage for an explosive show. (Or, so they say!)

Juvenile and MystikalJuvenile brings a big selection of hits to the stage, including his anthem “Back That Azz Up,” club banger “Ha” and the his No. 1 Billboard hit “Slow Motion.” Multi-platinum selling artist Mystikal performs such iconic tracks as “Danger,” “Shake it Fast,” and “Feel Right”.

Mystikal – Multi-platinum, 3x Grammy nominee Mystikal is back with his signature gruff sound and headed straight to the top of the charts. Let’s Get Ready was released in 2000 and contained “Danger (Been So Long)”, which featured rising pop star Nivea, and was the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs number-one single in June 2001. Let’s Get Ready debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200.

Juvenile – New Orleans-based gangsta rapper Juvenile was born Terius Gray. After beginning his performing career in his teens, he released a 1995 album on Warlock titled Being Myself. He eventually crossed paths with Cash Money label owners Ronald “Suga Slim” and Brian “Baby” Williams, who issued 1996’s Solja Rags; the album became a major underground hit and set the stage for the release of 1998’s 400 Degreez. In 1999, with Juvenile’s popularity growing, Solja Rags was reissued nationally, and Warlock jumped on the bandwagon with a remixed version of Being Myself. The year ended with the release of a new studio effort, Tha G-Code, followed by Project English two years later in 2001. In 2002 he left Cash Money and formed his own collective, the UTP Playas (Uptown Project Playas), with whom he recorded a posse album, The Compilation. The album went nowhere and a year later he was back on Cash Money and releasing Juve the Great, which featured the chart-topping hit “Slow Motion.” The 2005 “Noila Clap” single from the UTP Playas was another big track, and Juvenile was ready once again to shop for a new label. As he was signing a new contract with Asylum, his Slidell, Louisiana home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The hurricane and its grim aftermath were hot topics on his chart-topping 2006 album Reality Check. His next two albums — Cocky & Confident (2009) and Beast Mode (2010) — featured much lighter material. In 2011 he released Rejuvenation, an album primarily produced by Mannie Fresh.

Taking a break from the normal Tea Breaks. It has been reported that famed comedian and actor Charlie Murphy has passed away after his on-going battle with leukemia.

According to Charlie’s Manager, Charlie had been undergoing chemotherapy recently and passed away while in the hospital in New York City.

Charlie was recently on tour with Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, George Lopez and D.L. Hughley. Truly an epic show full of epic comedians.

Our prayers go out to the Murphy family during their time of mourning.
