Last week I had to pleasure to interview the cast of the upcoming TV One biopic, Bobbi Kristina. I spoke with Vivica A. Fox (Pat Houston), Hassan Johnson (Bobbi Brown), and Joy Rovaris (Bobbi Kristina) who not only addressed the controversary surrounding the film, but why they are in total support to see it air.

Of course, Aunt Vivica had plenty to say about the about the controversy, our messy President and why its time for POC to speak out. Check it all out after the break…

Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing one of the pioneers of hip hop, Run-DMC frontman, Darryl McDaniels. In our lenghty interview (just warning you now), Darryl discusses his memoir (now in paperback) 10 Ways Not to Commit Suicide, his love of all this comics, new music – -and his upcoming album.

It’s an interesting interview to say the least, with his emotional journey from suicidal thoughts to finding his mother and living a more fulfilled life. Also be read for a few impromptu recitals of his raps.

Check it out after the break…

It’s not everyday I get to interview a film icon. Wesley Snipes, who list of credits include White Man Can’t Jump, New Jack City, and my personal favorite, Blade, came by ABC to talk to me about his new sci-fi thriller novel, Talon of God.

Snipes was extremely candid with me talking not only about his book, which I will say is a must read, but his interest in making it a film, his thoughts on making a Blade a sequel and why there’s no need to reboot his classic flicks.

There’s a lot in this 20 minute interview (sorry no discussion of taxes) so enjoy…

p.s. Wesley is one funny mother… shut your mouth!

Last week I sat down with Growing Up Hip Hop star Romeo Miller who talked about the latest season of his WeTV show. Albeit it always seams like the New York versions of the franchises are usually bland compared to the ATL version, but I guess it’s worth checking out.

Romeo also talked about the No Limit reunion at Essence, which I told him was not quite what I expected. I, of course, addressed the whole #bowwowchallege, and among other things he talked about the No Limit Tour, his father’s biopic, and his “friendship” with Angela Simmons. Check out the full interview after the break….
