Growing up in the 90's The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" was a house hold favorite. Even today I love getting a laugh from a rerun of the sitcom. Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff are staples in the entertainment industry that have been honored and attributed to for years. The duo have created epic music together including a Philly anthem "Summertime." After 42 years of friendship the two reunited for a performance during the Livewire Festival in Blackpool, England. The two debut their new EDM style record "Get Lit." If you're here for this record share it.
Survivor's Remorse is "Bigger Than The Game". Its definitely one of the hottest shows on televisions and I'm sad to see it go after four seasons. Losing Uncle Julius ( played by Mike Epps) during the course of the show was sad but losing this half an hour comedic drama all together is shocking. Recently Starz announced the cancellation of the series. The cast which includes Jessie T. Usher, RonReaco Lee, Erica Ash, Teyonah Parris, Tichina Arnold, Robert Wu, Meagan Tandy, Catfish Jean , Isaiah Washington, Sir Brodie , Marlon Young and Chris Bauer.
Executive producers Lebron James, Mike O'Malley , Tom Werner, Maverick Carter, Paul Wachter, Victor Levin , and Hilton Smith. Producers Paul Marks , cinematographer Byron Shah , and editor Jason Gourson have joined together to conduct each episode. Each individual uses their special talent to bring forth such an awesome show. Mike O'Malley created a series that was much needed in television. I love this series , I mean what's a Sunday night without Survivor's Remorse ?
The show is based on Cam Calloway's (played by Jessie. T. Usher) career as a pro basketball player whom moves his family to Atlanta. Spring Hill Productions, Werner Entertainment and O'Malley Ink produced the hilarious show that you don't want to miss . This season revealed some truths, opened new doors, and closed others. So here's my five reasons why I'm going to miss Survivor's Remorse.
DREAMS COME TRUE
Cam landed his contract giving him the opportunity to help his family and move them into a mansion.
Talk about winning ! The family didn't always have the best but now its their time to shine and they are shining and Cam's dream came true. Love to see people win right ? Yeah I'm going to miss seeing Cam's fashions and his character do all he can for his family and what he believes in.
You gotta love the black love on this show. Its absolutely beautiful! They're good looking , hardworking and they support each other . Their chemistry on camera just pours out through their scenes. It's sexy , spicy, and funny. So cheers to black love of course.
The women on this show all bring something special to each scene. Each woman brings style and beauty to the screen. From hot shoes to marriage, relationships, careers, education, and family they all held it down.
PAIN AND STRENGTH
You are definitely in store for tons of laughs. Yet Survivor's Remorse touched on some very important issues during its run. The show included segments about money , alcoholism , sexual assault, financial issues, extortion, racism, depression, death, incarceration, sexuality , growth, self acceptance and more. The show didn't shy a way from hardships at all. We need shows that touch on hard hitting subjects that show pain and how it can be dealt with.
Whether you're laughing at a joke from Uncle Julius , M Chuck, a relative mom cut from Cassie , or a informational filled sly comment from Da Chen , you will def be cracking up. Survivor's Remorse shows off stylish attire , educated women, and a family that sticks together through it all. Don't you just love that? I do. I'm honestly sad to see this show go. The special guest also made some really interesting or comedic appearances. These actors and actresses are amazing and the star light they brought to Starz is much appreciated. I hope they will be back and this end is just temporary. So huge congrats to Lebron James , the cast , and crew. So of course I'll be watching my favorite episodes on Starz . What has been your favorite Survivor's Remorse moment?

I've always wanted to be a ballerina but however due to health issues as a kid I couldn't fulfill the dream . My mom even put me in a ballet class when I was younger but I was the only black girl. Nobody wanted to be my partner and teased me and I ended up quitting. So seeing Misty Copeland achieve so many amazing things is beyond inspiring. Ballet dancer extraordinaire Misty Copeland, the first African-American principal ballerina in the history of American Ballet Theatre, will be a guest judge on the July 18 and July 25 episodes of NBC’s new high-rated competition series “World of Dance.” Copeland will be joining for round three of the competition, “The Cut,” where the competitors face the deepest and most intense cut of the season. More than half of the acts will be sent home, and only the top two acts from each division will move on to the Division Final.
“When judging the best of the best, we knew we needed an all-star guest judge with passion and credibility to mentor these incredible dancers,” said judge/executive producer Jennifer Lopez. “Misty Copeland is at the top of her game and we are so honored that she was able to lend her expertise and experience to the ‘World of Dance’ stage.”
In its first three weeks, “World of Dance” has averaged a 2.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.7 million viewers overall in “live plus same day” results from Nielsen Media Research, making it the #2 entertainment series of the summer to date in 18-49 and total viewers, behind only NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” In 18-49, it’s the highest-rated first-year summer series through its first three weeks since 2013 and CBS’ “Under the Dome,” and in total viewers, it’s the most-watched first-year summer alternative series at this point in nine years. The May 30 “World of Dance” premiere grew to a 3.0 rating in “live plus three day” Nielsen’s, with the increase of 0.64 of a rating point being the biggest L+3 lift ever reported by Nielsen for an alternative series premiere.
ABOUT WORLD OF DANCE

ABOUT MISTY COPELAND
Misty Copeland joined ABT’s Studio Company in 2000, joined American Ballet Theatre as a member of the corps de ballet in 2001 and in 2007 became the company’s second African-American female soloist and the first in two decades. In 2015, she was promoted to principal dancer, making her the first African-American woman to ever be promoted to the position in the company’s 75-year history. That same year she made her Broadway debut co-starring in the critically acclaimed musical “On the Town.” In 2014, Copeland debuted in the lead character of Clara in American Ballet Theatre's production of "The Nutcracker." Later that year she made history as the first African-American woman to perform the lead role of Odette/Odile in American Ballet Theatre's "Swan Lake" during the company's inaugural tour to Australia. Copeland is the author of 2014 New York Times bestselling memoir “Life in Motion,” co-written with award-winning journalist and author Charisse Jones. Her new book, “Ballerina Body,” also a New York Times bestseller, was published this year.
“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.” – Booker T. Washington
Chris Brown truly is a winner Before I get into this documentary I just want to say if you missed his Party Tour , you missed a good time. I surprised my little cousin with tickets to his show in Philadelphia and it was lit as always. Now back to the documentary. I remember Riveting Entertainment announcing that Chris had a doc coming soon but a release date wasn't slated . I've been Team Breezy for a while . I remember running to the TV when "Run It" came on 106 & Park or dragging my dad to the mall to get the Chris Brown CD. Do you know how many times I played "Young Love" , " Ya Man Ain't Me" , "Winner", and "Poppin"? His music is just amazing and you can't take that away. As I sat in the theater watching his film , not only did Chris share his secrets, he talked about his drive, his love of his family, his love for music and wanting to do more in the world . Every article I've written about Chris I always wanted to focus on his creativity , his passion, his gifts as appose to bashing him like the rest of the media. I remember reading headlines about Chris and going but he just gave teens scholarships for Debbie Allen's dance school, he just gave away Christmas toys, he directed his own music video, he collaborated with Ron English, he has a label and his clothing line Black Pyramid is doing great . I'm like why is the media always saying negative things instead of positive despite that we are all human and we face hardships and regrets. I don't want to spoil the doc for those of you who haven't seen it . Some of the biggest celebrities were featured on the film and each of them discussed his down falls, his heavy work ethic, and despite many battles he over came and he's one of the greats.
Chris Brown rolls out the welcome mat to his life and let's us all the way in. He discusses some very personal stories , deep pain, and hurtful memories. For once he tells his side. We know all the major news stories that released about Chris Brown and how many incidents affected his life in a major way. There's so many situations he speaks on in the doc and he wants to tell his truth of his journey and no you may not like it but he's telling his side. He also speaks on gong into a deep depression , the nasty jail conditions, and reading his bible. His mother and aunt also talked about how special he is and how much he's grown over the years. Chris has accomplished a lot at a young age but his greatest accomplishment is his daughter Royalty. He spoke about tattooing her face on his back because she always got his back and how much she has changed his life . The visuals of them together just makes you smile because its love and that can't be broken. Chris Brown wanted Team Breezy and people that don't like him to see who he is and what he feels. The documentary came from place of raw-truth.
There's no boxing this man in! We all mess up sometimes but we learn from it and continue to grow even more. He let his pain make him fearless and decided that he was going to be the baddest on stage.
If you missed it you have another opportunity to see it , Wednesday June 21, 2017 . So check out Welcome To My Life and get to know Chris Brown a little more. Huge shout out to Producer Andrew Listermann, Director Andrew Sandler, the whole Riveting Entertainment and of course Chris Brown ! Chris Brown is truly one of the greats and that can't be denied. A few years ago I tweeted Chris Brown about designing some Breezy Art Sneakers and not only did he favorite my tweet he also followed me. I don't know what happened but he currently only follows 1 person. So hopefully I'll just pray the day I get to interview Chris Brown I can get him to design some sneakers lol. Anyways go see this documentary and get a new understanding and a new look. There's points where you'll laugh, dance, cry, get upset, but when you walk out the theater just know that you've gotten a deeper view into the life of Christopher Maurice Brown not just Chris Brown the superstar , dancer, singer, songwriter, actor, director, designer but Chris the son, nephew, man, human being, father, and friend. You all know Chris directing skills are ill so I can't wait to see a real movie he directs , maybe we might get an animated series since Chris can draw and he loves cartoons. Heart Break On A Full Moon is his ninth album , and its on the way ! Get excited Team Breezy!

I watched a few minutes and I remember hearing Chris Brown's vocals for a few seconds on one of the songs . So I highly anticipated hearing the full track . On May 6, 2017 Meek celebrated his 30th birthday and released a three track project entitled "Meekend Mu$ic" via MyMixtapez followed by music videos for "Left Hollywood" and "Litty" ft Tory Lanez. This week he released his new song and video "Glow Up" . One things for sure , Meek isn't letting up any time soon . I have a feeling that he's going to keep dropping banger after banger until he releases his full album . If you want to see Meek shut down the stage this summer , get your tickets to the "Against All Odds Tour" featuring Yo Gotti. Last night Meek Mill released his new single "Whatever You Need" featuring Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign. The song samples the 1991 single "Whatever You Want" by Tony, Toni, Tone. This new track is produced by DJ Mustard. All three of these talented artist brought their unique styles and flows together to create a perfect mix of rap and R&B . This track is straight heat . Meek , Chris , and Ty Dolla $ign did their things with this one. FACTS!!!
Can I get an encore? The Between The Sheets Tour officially goes down in my history as one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to in my life. From beginning to end I was beyond ecstatic and I didn’t want it to be over. Honestly I wish I could see every show over and over.
Before the show started, you could feel the energy and excitement as everyone awaited Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and Tyga. Despite the cold weather outside it was super hot in the Wells Fargo Center in Philly. After the lights dropped screams filled the building as Tyga hit the stage. King Gold Chains definitely turned up for the crowd. Now ladies you will definitely drop, drop it to the floor for him during his set.
You can hear hearts pounding, screams, and see tons of smiles when Trigga’s voice came through the speakers. My goodness Trey Songz kept it sexy of course. He performed some of our favorite Trey songs. Mr.Steal your girl could have definitely walked away with all the ladies with his mind blowing performance. Trigga’s dancers are super hot and beautiful. Trey’s smile during his set lit up the whole building. Oh my gosh his voice is amazing, soulful, and strong. Trey’s Angels you will be beyond pleased, I know for sure I was.
Seeing Chris Brown perform on TV is one thing but seeing him live is unforgettable. Its truly a can take your eyes off of him experience. First lets talk about how fire Chris Brown’s sneakers are. Breezy’s kicks are always fly. I’m patiently awaiting the day he releases his own sneaker line. I’m telling you, you will dance and sing and be completely feel the electricity of his performance. For a second I just stood there and shook my head. I couldn’t believe I was finally seeing Chris Breezy do his thing live. His dancers and guy vocal team also rocked the stage.
I was completely a fangirl at the show, I couldn’t help it. My mama was my date for the night and she had a super fun time. Trey bringing out Philly’s own Meek Mill was magical. The whole building went crazy when Meek stepped out. I love watching him perform “Dream and Nightmares” . It was definitely good to see him. This is a show you cannot miss. I’m telling you, you have to see this show when it comes to your city. I’m 23 and I felt like that 14 year old girl that was standing in FYE getting Chris Brown’s first album. I felt like the girl that ran to the TV every time Trey or Chris popped up on the TV. I remember when I had Tyga’s “Coconut Juice” as a ringtone. It was an overly exciting night. There are a lot of surprises at the show, I don't want to spoil it for you. I promise you will enjoy yourself. So go get your tickets on www.livenation.com. Its just phenomenal to see these guys show their brotherhood , talent, and gifts on stage. The Between The Sheets Tour is inspiring, sizzling, fun and definitely something to rave about! I loved every second of it! Thank you guys for being great artist and for putting on such a great show. Your hard work is appreciated and I truly am grateful to be a fan and admirer of your dreams and work. Thanks for putting y'all hearts in it!!
Love Always xoxo

Today The Mogul Minute spent the day at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA . There were smiling-game faces, colorful creative costumes, good music, and laughter all around. There were many participants in Roc Race which proved today , that there might just be a little ridiculousness in everyone. The 5K consisted of a 12 obstacle course challenge, including the World's Largest Inflatable Water Slide. Everyone was in such good spirits and having such a great time, I had a blast.
Roc Race Philly rocked so hard ! Shoutout to all the volunteers who were super friendly and were a big help at today's event. Wired 96.5 even came out to support the event! Roc Race was extremely fantastic and it benefits the Challenged Athlete Foundation which is a great cause .
