Last week I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing the iconic Clive Davis on his new doc, Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives.

During the interivew, Davis broke down his five decades in the music industry and some of the phenominal artists he cultivated. From Blues to Rock to R&B and Hip Hop, Davis shared of some his fondest memories in music from working with Aretha Franklin to Puff Daddy. He also talked about some of the challenges he faced over the years and how he overcame.

One of those difficult moments was the loss of legendary singer, Whitney Houston. Check out the full story after the break…

Keke Palmer stopped by the Urban Suite to talk about her new role on Epix’s Berlin Station.

While there, Keke chopped it up about her recent  EP, Lauren, her connection to R. Kelly (don’t worry she’s not in a cult) and some of her upcoming projects like Star and Scream — the series.

We had plenty to get into — and you already know Keke did not hold back or mince her words on any of the drama. Plus, she left us with some vocals — so stay tuned until the end…

Alfonso Ribeiro stopped by the Urban Suite to discuss the new season of America’s Funniest Home Videos.

While there, we had to discuss  a few pressing matters like … the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Check out our fun interivew after the break…
