EThere were some good signs this week on the entertainment and philanthropy front. Akon has finalized an agreement for 'Akon City, ' which will reportedly be completed in 2025. Akon claims the city will be built on a 2,000-acre land gifted to him by the President of Senegal, Macky Sall. The new city would also trade exclusively in his own digital cash currency called AKoin, he said. Since he's stepped away from music, he has been doing some BIG things behind the scenes! Fox television announces new streaming service ‘Fox Soul’ which will be aimed at Black viewers. Fox Soul will ”aim to celebrate black culture and highlight the real topics that affect the everyday lives of the African American community through frank and insightful dialogue with local and national influencers.

Former R. Kelly associate Azriel Clary has been reunited with her family! In a photo posted on Monday (Jan. 13), Clary, her parents, and other family members all donned white t-shirts and sky blue jeans for a fun-loving photoshoot that clearly shows that the connection was an important one for her. Taking control of her narrative since leaving Kelly’s Trump Tower Chicago home, Clary has been transparent about her evolution. Good for her and her family, FINALLY!!! On Monday (January 13), the D-O-Double-G, Snoop Dogg unveiled the signature sandwich, which is appropriately called the Beyond D-O-Double-G. The catch? It will only be available until January 19.

Show # 209 - Caught In The Act

EHave you ever been caught in the act of something before? Well this week we got some things to discuss about getting caught. Surviving R Kelly Part II: what can we learn from the horrifying update? According to multiple people in the know, the Starz network and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson are preparing to launch a lawsuit against French, for copyright infringement. French leaked an entire scene from the latest episode of Power. French and 50's latest squabble started when French posted about a used 2008 Bugatti that he bought. 50 Cent, who recently bought the 2020 version of the same car for $4 million, started flowing French over his second-hand purchase. Here we go again! Cardi took to Twitter last weekend and announced that she would be filing for her citizenship in Nigeria. She tweeted, “Naaaaa these memes are fuckin [crying emojis] but shit ain’t no joke! Especially being from New York. Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger. Dumbest move Trump did to date ...I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship.” Cardi was last in Nigeria when she performed at the Livespot X Festival on Saturday (Dec. 7). During the same trip, she also performed in Ghana at the Accra Sports Stadium in the capital city. Speaking of Cardi, Invasion Of Privacy just spent its 91st week on the Billboard 200 chart at #56. That total puts Cardi's album in a tie with Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998) as the longest-charting debut album by a female rapper.

Show # 207 - Tis The Season

EThis is the season of giving and family. This week, we had some trending topics touched on some of these ideals. "Juice" songstress Lizzo stole the show at the Lake Show on Sunday. The Grammy-nominated performer made waves when she began twerking in a thong during the Lakers-Timberwolves game in Los Angeles. Lizzo's asset-showing outfit quickly spread across social media. Some Twitter users began pointing out the similarities between her black shirt-dress with a whole in the back to the ring attire of professional wrestler Solofa Fatu Jr. (aka Rikishi). You have to love her expressiveness though! Kanye is trippin' once again! The rapper's most recent venture took place on Sunday (December 8th) at the Miami Marine Stadium and was accessible only via motorboat, where he was covered head-to-toe in silver for his latest opera, "Mary." Staged on a floating barge at the Key Biscayne waterfront, the chorus stood between sand-colored mounds and reenacted excerpts from the biblical books of Matthew and Luke. Hey...Kanye is Kanye, lol. "Daughters of Africa, today the queen of the universe looks like you." South Africa's 'Zozibini Tunzi' wins Miss Universe title. The newly-minted Miss Universe beat 89 other contestants to nab the coveted title at a ceremony held at the recently opened Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta on Sunday. And now, in a historic first, the crowns for four major pageants are worn by black women. Zozibini Tunzi joins Miss America Nia Franklin, Miss USA Cheslie Kryst and Miss Teen USA Kaliegh Garris in the history-making group. Earlier this year, Franklin, Kryst and Garris made history together as the first three black women to wear those crowns at the same time. Black Girl Magic!! Santa Claus doing lines of coke on your holiday sweater is NOT what Walmart's all about -- according to the big-box store, which is blaming Canada ... for the fashion blunder. A sweater depicting a crazed Claus gripping a straw, getting ready to dive into 3 lines of cocaine was being peddled on Walmart's website. Wow, this is what Christmas has now come too! The "Illastr8 HOT TAKE" for this week was a good one as usual. "When your partner quits his high-paying job to chase his dreams." We had some callers that gave some good points of view and the ladies of couse had to say their piece, lol. Wednesday's from 9-10 pm, we got you ALL DAY!!!

When asked about going up against Kanye West, who has also expressed his interest in a presidential run in 2024, Akon said it wouldn’t be a competition.“I honestly need him to run, I want him to run,” he explained. “Working together we could now both fulfill the overall play of what the American people is looking for and I think that would be a great compromise,” he said of their different perspectives. “The combination could be something, you just never know. We just have to wait for that time to come and see.

Show # 203 - Hidden Figures

EThis week, we started the show on a somber note; to commemorate a show partner and supporter, TRUST - R.I.P.! He passed suddenly and he will surely be missed! This week, we also mentioned some 'hidden' figures in trending news. Coincidentally,Instagram is about to hide likes for some US users. For years, likes have been central to how celebrities, brands, politicians and everyday users experience Instagram, and Facebook. It's a way of measuring popularity and success. But in recent months, Instagram has been rethinking how likes contribute to making its platform more toxic. Now it's contemplating a change. We'll tell you what to expect! The Queen Of Hip Hop, Soul Mary J. Blige is set to release box set ‘HERstory Vol. 1.’ The collection will be released in three physical forms: eight standard-weight black 7-inch vinyl that will feature tracks and remixes from her smash triple-platinum debut albums. Mary J. Blige’s HERstory Vol. 1 will be released to the public on December 6. Kanye West is set to bring his "Sunday Service" to Pastor, Joel Osteens Houston church. The plan is for Kanye to show up at Joel’s 11 AM service in Houston this coming Sunday at the Lakewood Church. Kanye will walk up to the pulpit and have a conversation with Joel that will last between 20 and 30 minutes. Sources say Joel wants his congregation — which stands 45,000 strong — and his TV audience — which stands at 10 million in the U.S. alone — to hear how Kanye has overcome significant adversity in his life. This should be interesting! This story has been hidden for decades, but no longer. After 200 years, Steven Reed will be sworn in as the first Black Mayor of Montgomery, Alabama. Montgomery was the site of the Rosa Parks-inspired bus boycott in 1955 and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, as well as the destination of the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery protest marches that were met with brutal police violence and led to the Voting Rights Act. Congrats brotha!! Alicia Keys disheartened over her son being worried about being judged for having a rainbow manicure. Have any of you witnessed a child being worried about being judged for being masculine or feminine at a young age? The "Illastr8 HOT TAKE" for this week was, 'times men think we’re (women) flirting…but we aren’t.' The ladies of Illastr8 had some choice things to say about this one, lol. Check us out and stay tuned in!!

Show # 201 - Trailblazing

EIt take a special person to be a real trailblazer. Some instances however my show otherwise. This one was a great example of what it takes to be this sort of person. Dave Chappelle was honored in his hometown of Washington, DC on Sunday. The legendary comedian was presented with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The Mark Twain Prize ceremony celebrating Dave Chapelle will air January 7, 2020 on PBS. Past recipients include Richard Pryor, Whoopi Goldberg, Steve Martin, Billy Crystal, George Carlin, Ellen DeGeneres, and Eddie Murphy. Congrats and well deserved! The one person these days especially who embodies being someone that doesn't conform, Kanye. Kanye West’s hard pivot to gospel music has apparently done nothing to alienate his fanbase, as his new album, Jesus Is King, is pacing for a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200. If Jesus Is King debuts at No. 1—which is all but inevitable—it will mark West’s ninth consecutiv...

Mary J. Blige’s HERstory Vol. 1 will be released to the public on December 6. Kanye West is set to bring his "Sunday Service" to Pastor, Joel Osteens Houston church. The plan is for Kanye to show up at Joel’s 11 AM service in Houston this coming Sunday at the Lakewood Church. Kanye will walk up to the pulpit and have a conversation with Joel that will last between 20 and 30 minutes. Sources say Joel wants his congregation — which stands 45,000 strong — and his TV audience — which stands at 10 million in the U.S. alone — to hear how Kanye has overcome significant adversity in his life. This should be interesting! This story has been hidden for decades, but no longer. After 200 years, Steven Reed will be sworn in as the first Black Mayor of Montgomery, Alabama. Montgomery was the site of the Rosa Parks-inspired bus boycott in 1955 and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, as well as the destination of the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery protest marches that were met with brutal police violence and led to the Voting Rights Act. Congrats brotha!! Alicia Keys disheartened over her son being worried about being judged for having a rainbow manicure. Have any of you witnessed a child being worried about being judged for being masculine or feminine at a young age? The "Illastr8 HOT TAKE" for this week was, 'times men think we’re (women) flirting…but we aren’t.' The ladies of Illastr8 had some choice things to say about this one, lol. Check us out and stay tuned in!!

Show # 201 - Trailblazing

EIt take a special person to be a real trailblazer. Some instances however my show otherwise. This one was a great example of what it takes to be this sort of person. Dave Chappelle was honored in his hometown of Washington, DC on Sunday. The legendary comedian was presented with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The Mark Twain Prize ceremony celebrating Dave Chapelle will air January 7, 2020 on PBS. Past recipients include Richard Pryor, Whoopi Goldberg, Steve Martin, Billy Crystal, George Carlin, Ellen DeGeneres, and Eddie Murphy. Congrats and well deserved! The one person these days especially who embodies being someone that doesn't conform, Kanye. Kanye West’s hard pivot to gospel music has apparently done nothing to alienate his fanbase, as his new album, Jesus Is King, is pacing for a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200.
