John Singleton‘s youngest son, Seven Singleton, hit the carpet at the premiere of "Snowfall" Season 3 ahead of his acting debut in the upcoming season. Peep pics of the late famed director’s adorable son, plus deets on his role inside….

About three months ago, Hollywood was rocked with news that famed director John Singleton had passed away from complications following a stroke. He was 51.

Now, his legacy will live on through his youngest son, Seven Singleton. The tiny tot and his mom joined "Snowfall" actor Damson Idris on the carpet for the premiere of FX’s "Snowfall" Season 3 held at Bovard Auditorium At USC in Los Angeles.

And boy is he a cutie!

The Oscar nominated director was one of the creators of the hit FX series "Snowfall," alongside Dave Andron and Eric Amadio. He was also an executive producer of the show and he directed a few episodes as well.

Following his untimely death, the creative team put together an episode that will honor the late famed director. And his 1-year-old son, Seven Singleton, will be featured in the redesigned as a tribute to the show’s creator.

They created a character that resembles the late director’s real life before his career took off in Hollywood. According to TMZ, “Everyone involved really wanted to honor him this way, and worked very hard with little time to make it happen.”

The director made history as the first black person and the youngest filmmaker ever to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director for his critically-acclaimed film, Boyz In The Hood.

Damson Idris – above alongside his co-star Reign Edwards – plays the lead star Franklin Saint, a young street hustler working to build his credibility in the drug game in LA. In a recent interview with ABC Radio, the British-born Nigerian actor shared a few tidbits about how the third season will honor Singleton’s legacy without giving away too many details.

"I won’t give too much away, but we honor John and kind of the genesis of his career and who he was in South Central," Idris revealed

He continued, "There’s an interaction with myself and a ‘John Singleton’ and Leon, played by Isaiah John. It’s gonna be nostalgic, it’s gonna be beautiful, and you know as he runs off…whoa, I don’t wanna talk too much about it but, yeah. And we also have his son, Seven, in the same scene too," Idris added. "So yeah that’s going to be beautiful."

Idris also recently spoke to The Root about John Singleton’s passing and gems the award winning director left with him:

Rapper Wale is a fan of the show. He saluted Damson on the carpet.

Amin Joseph – who plays Franklin’s uncle Jermone Saint on "Snowfall" – was also front-and-center for the series’ season 3 premiere, rocking Paisley & Gray and COS.

 

"Snowfall" Season 3 premiered on Wednesday, July 10th and new episodes air every week on FX. Be sure to tune in to see how the show honored the late, great John Singleton. May he rest in peace.

Natasha FINALLY got to meet one of her entrepreneurial idols – New Orleans legend Master P! After she fan-girled out, they got to the ish y’all want to know.

Subscribe to The YBF Podcast on Apple, Spotify, Google & anywhere you get your podcasts!

 

 

Say what you will about Master P., but put some respek on his name, especially since his name is now synonymous with Independent AF.  The New Orleans icon and hip hop legend is back to doing what he does best – creating & hustling with his own ends and putting on the next generation of talent.

It’s been 20 years since P dropped the iconic BLACKbuster classic (we said what we said), I Got The Hook Up, for the culture – all about hilariously hustling in these streets, independently, with a product that can outlive you.  Now, he’s dropping gems every entrepreneur needs to hear as the sequel – that is independently funded by himself and Romeo Miller – hits theaters!

 

 photo CymphoniqueMillerBumblePresentsBETHer4fTuzFzBpMjl_zpsup5lkeqk.jpg

On the latest episode of The YBF Podcast, Percy "Master P" Miller & Natasha chop it up about why he and Tyler Perry have a super awkward acquaintanceship and why P thinks that’s problematic, New Orleans gentrification, the best advice he gave to the late Nipsey Hussle, why blacks in Hollywood are scared of P., why blacks in Hollywood need to pool their money and create their own "Black Panther" type blockbusters to create ownership and wealth, the upcoming No Limit Tour, why female rappers are running the game right now, P’s bomb parenting style & super talented kids (Cymphonique & Romeo pictured above), why he’s still fine and an eligible bachelor, why his fine a– son Romeo is too, what he’s looking for in a woman (ladies – he cooks!), the real reason he hustled his way to independence, how to not give up during tumultuous times as an entrepreneur, remaking "Make ‘Em Say Uhh" (Natasha gave him the new rappers who should be featured and she wants her producer credits!), why he cast new rappers and social media comedians in I Got The Hook Up 2, and why "I Got The Hook Up" is iconic for the culture.  

Oh, and Natasha picks the PERFECT (newly single) lady who Master P should date.  Guess who….

P.S. ladies: He’s 49, a Taurus, a total gentleman, and not one crack in his black(ness). Still fine.

I Got The Hook Up 2 is in AMC Theaters NOW!  It’s is also available on all VOD platforms: Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and more!

“People think I sell crack for real,” said Damson who hails from Peckham, London NOT South Central like his character. “It’s beautiful. If anyone’s been keeping up with the show then you know we put our all into it and it was created by the late, great John Singleton.”

GIRL GROUP DRAMA! Spinderella SUES Salt-N-Pepa For Unpaid Royalties & Breach Of Contract, Sources Claim She’s BITTER

The Young, Black, and Fabulous®

DJ Spinderella claims she was kicked out of the group and now she’s SUING Salt-N-Pepa for unpaid royalties. Deets inside…

There’s drama unfolding in one Hip Hop legendary group.  Again.

About two months ago, DJ Spinderella took to social media to announce she had been terminated from future performances with Salt-N-Pepa on their reunion tour. And she said she received the notice via email. Yikes.

“I’m deeply saddened to share with all the #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella fans that I will not be performing on the #NKOTB Mixtape Tour. Despite my participation in promoting the tour and being highly publicized as one of the acts, in January 2019 I received a ‘termination’ email from #SaltnPepa excluding me from performances with the group. It was my expectation, after making that decision, that they would also take responsibility for sharing the news with the public and other affected parties. It has been months now with no mention. Out of love for my fans and a commitment to upholding a standard of professionalism, I’ve taken it upon myself to let everyone know. I refuse to participate in misleading fans, ticketholders, and others who — based on all the advertising — were anticipating seeing the iconic #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella trio. So, I’m making it clear now. Please know you will have the opportunity to see me this summer in many other projects and activities I’ll be participating in and I look forward to seeing you all then.” Thank you, Spinderella

“I’m deeply saddened to share with all the #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella fans that I will not be performing on the #NKOTB Mixtape Tour," she wrote. "Despite my participation in promoting the tour and being highly publicized as one of the acts, in January 2019 I received a ‘termination’ email from #SaltnPepaexcluding me from performances with the group.

So, I’m making it clear now. Please know you will have the opportunity to see me this summer in many other projects and activities I’ll be participating in and I look forward to seeing you all then.”

Now, she’s gunning for what she believes it rightfully hers.

Spinderella (born Deidra Roper) just filed a breach of contract lawsuit in federal court (sheesh) in Texas against her former bandmates, Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton.

In addition to gunning for alleged unpaid royalites, she’s also suing for multiple breaches of contract, fraud, and international misrepresentation, according to court documents obtained by The Blast. Oh, and she’s looking to receive money she claims she wasn’t paid that dates back to the 90s. She claims she was promised a third of the royalities from their Best Of Salt-N-Pepa album, however, she never saw those coins. She was supposed to be paid $ 125,000.

“Roper was suddenly informed — in an unexpected telephone call from Denton — that James, 53, and Denton, 52, were holding the sum of $ 125,000 that would be paid to Roper,” the documents claim. “No such payment of $ 125,000 was subsequently made to Roper.”

It doesn’t end there…

Spin also claims she was excluded the group’s VH1 show ‘Salt-N-Pepa Show’ in 2007 that chronicled the group’s rise to fame. She claims she was supposed to receive 1/3 of the funds, however, she was limited to just guest spots and was paid way less than the agreed upon amount.

Spin appeared at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and was not paid. She also claims SoundExchange, the company responsible for the distribution of royalties to artists, revealed her groupmates received over $ 600,000 over the past decade and she hasn’t received a dime.

Salt-N-Pepa has responded to her lawsuit, claiming she’s bitter.

TMZ reports:

Sources connected with the group tell TMZ … the ladies think Spinderella’s suit is really about her own insecurities — that she feels like a third wheel, and has ever since 2007’s ‘Salt-N-Pepa Show’ on VH1. Spin was only a featured guest.

However, our sources say Spin’s not entitled to any royalties in her contract — including the $ 125k she says she’s owed from the 1999 ‘Best of’ album. We’re told she was always paid as an independent contractor, but S and the P still made sure Spin always got the finest accommodations to go with her paycheck.

As for the TV show … our sources say it was TV producers who didn’t want her involved and it was out of Salt and Pepa’s hands. We’re told they think Spinderella’s bitterness also stems from talk shows regularly requesting only the 2 front women for interviews.

Our sources also say the Salt-N-Pepa brand is owned by Salt and Pepa, not Spinderella … so her claims of trademark infringement in her suit are also baseless. We’re told they haven’t used her name or likeness once since her departure from the group.

Finally, we’re told the duo claims it went out of its way to make sure Spinderella got her own shine during the group’s appearance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. They say no member got paid for the gig … and Spin was well aware of that.

Ugh! Let’s hope the ladies can work this out. Sad to see an iconic group come to this.
