Queen Latifah hit 100 Million but hasn’t Paid her Cast…..

Recently, social media has been in celebration about “Girls Trip” hitting the $100 Million mark. However, as we celebrate the success of Girls Trip, it’s been bought to our attention that some of the cast from the upcoming production “The Trap” are yet to have been paid. 

In case you don’t recall, its been reported recently about the collaboration of T. I., Mike Epps, and Queen Latifah. 


According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Queen Latifah and her Flavor Unit Entertainment partner Shakim Compere are producing and financing the project, which is based on a story co-written by Epps.

With that said, we were sent an email from one of the cast members. This email was sent to them by one of the casting companies that casting for the production. As you will see, the email is apologizing to the cast for not being paid. See for yourself! #WheresMyCoinBish


Did you catch it???? Not only is the cast awaiting payment but so is the casting company. Talk about some bullshytt. 

Can someone call Queen and ask her if she plans to use part of the $100 Million to pay the cast and casting company???? 

Slam Bookers Sound Off………

Movie Review “Girls Trip”

We finally had the opportunity to experience “Girls Trip” and it was PHENOMENAL. 

Best friends Ryan, Sasha, Lisa and Dina are in for the adventure of a lifetime when they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival. Along the way, they rekindle their sisterhood and rediscover their wild side by doing enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

We walked into the film expecting to laugh through the entire movie and have an entertaining experience. However, upon completion of the film, you realize that there is a story amongst the humor and even deeper, a form of self realization within the story. 

Jada Pinkett Smith

We all know Girls Trip is based on 4 girlfriends taking a trip to the Essence Festival in the hopes of reconnecting and fixing their strained relationship. During this trip, you begin to learn each member of the group and you subconsciously start to place your friends into their roles. 

For those who haven’t seen it, we strongly suggest you do, however, we won’t give it all away, during the comedy there are some hurdles that each character experiences. These hurdles begin to cause you to realize which girl you relate the most to. Furthermore, you begin to ask yourself, “what would I do?”

From the Nights out on the town, to the intimate conversations in bed, this film has something for everyone. Male and Female.

Now! Let’s get into the film as a whole:
