The world’s most dangerous group is coming to the big screen. In 2015, Universal Pictures will release the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, based on the story of the notorious West Coast rap group.

The film doesn’t hit theaters until August 14, but Ice Cube premiered the first trailer during a concert in Sydney, Australia this month. Several fans captured the bootleg footage and uploaded it to YouTube.
Directed by F. Gary Gray, the movie stars Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E), Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre), and Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr., who plays his father.

In the action-packed clip, we get a first glimpse at the Compton crew on the rocky road to stardom, including scenes of Dr. Dre in prison and a high-speed police chase.
“Let me tell you what I see here: A lot of raw talent, swagger, bravado. People are scared of you guys, they think you’re dangerous, but you have a unique voice. The world needs to hear it,” says Paul Giamatti, who stars as Jerry Heller, N.W.A.’s manager and the co-founder of Ruthless Records.
Get a first look at one of the most anticipated films of 2015 below.

Top  5 minus one....Comedian Chris Rock has filed for divorce from his wife of 19 years. 

A representative for Rock confirmed the pending split from Malaak Compton-Rock in a statement released late Sunday. 

"This is a personal matter, and Chris requests privacy as he and Malaak work through this process and focus on their family," Rock's attorney, Robert S. Cohen said in a statement obtained by the New York Post. 
"After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Malaak said in a statement obtained by the Post. "My children remain at the center of my life, and their well-being is my top priority."
The couple have two daughters, 12-year-old Lola and 10-year-old Zahra. Malaak Compton-Rock is the founder of a nonprofit organization called styleWORKS, which helps women get jobs after going off welfare.

Rock has repeatedly used his standup routine to poke fun at marriage, including one riff involving the late South African leader Nelson Mandela: "Marriage is so tough man, Nelson Mandela got divorced — he got out of jail after 27 years of torture, spent six months with his wife and said, ‘I can’t take this [expletive] no more.'"
World of the split comes as Rock continues to promote his recently released film, "Top Five," which he wrote and directed.

In honor of Jay Z’s 45th birthday earlier this month, Beyoncé and Jay Z traveled to Iceland for a celebration in the snow. Mr. and Mrs. Carter bared the freezing temps, but still looked like they were having a blast in the wintery wonderland.
The "7/11" singer rounded up a group of their close friends for a celebratory dinner at the super luxe Trophy Lodge resort for the rap mogul’s milestone birthday, complete with a surprise birthday cake.

Donning orange ski suits, they rode snowmobiles through the arctic tundra and honored Mike Brown by posing for a photo with their hands up. The couple took a helicopter ride (we see you, Blue), sipped champagne in the snow, and warmed up with a swim in the hot springs (check out a bikini-clad Bey throwing up the Roc).

Bey was all smiles as she rolled around in the white powder, and presented her hubby with a cake during an intimate dinner.

Then the Carters hopped on a helicopter to explore the beauty of the volcanic island. We hear they flew over the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, which caused a huge disruption to air travel after it erupted in 2010, and the Holuhraun eruption.

The Carters are currently in Phuket, Thailand for the holidays.

Showing her love, Nick Young is one lucky dude. Iggy Azalea surprised her boo Swaggy P by buying him a 1962 Chevy Impala for Christmas. The Lakers star got behind the wheel and showed off his shiny blue ride on Instagram.

“My boo so dope!!!!! @thenewclassic thanks for the Christmas gift #LoveYou You Go Girl!!!! WestSide,” tweeted Nick.

Iggy presented the fancy gift (estimated at $100k) to him with a red bow and gift tag on it that read: “A gift for Swaggy P From: Iggy.”

The couple, who connected via social media, can be seen in the holiday 2014 campaign for Forever 21. Earlier this year, they purchased a house together in the San Fernando Valley.

“From her songs, I thought she’d be all about going to clubs and partying, but it’s the opposite of that,” Nick told DuJour magazine. “She wakes up early every morning to take care of her dogs, and she cooks for me. From her rapping, I was very surprised that she could do all that. She’s a really cool, down-to-earth person.”
Iggy gushed about her man in an interview with GQ. “Nick’s really goofy and funny,” she said. “I always joke with him, ‘I hope we don’t break up because you’d ruin basketball for me.’”

After 14 years on the air, BET’s “106 & Park” aired its final episode on Friday. During the live two-hour “final act,” the original hosts AJ and Free returned to reminisce on highlights from the show’s historic run.

Keyshia Cole and Wale, who launched their careers on the “106″ stage, stopped by to hang with the livest audience one last time, while Big Sean, Ne-Yo, Ashanti, and Common taped farewell messages.

A passionate Wale spoke from the heart. “They tryna get rid of this. They tryna get rid of our voice. They tryna get rid of our style. They tryna get rid of our culture, they tryna dilute it,” he said. “Don’t ever get it twisted by no blog or no Internet people. This is our culture. Our parents had ‘Soul Train’ and ‘American Bandstand,’ we had ’106 & Park.’”

Nicki Minaj was the final guest on Thursday and sat down with Terrence and Rocsi to discuss the show’s legacy and her new album The Pinkprint.

“Can’t believe this show is coming to an end,” said Nicki. “It’s given me the best moments with my fans that I’ll cherish for a lifetime.”

In 2015, BET plans to take the show digital via BET.com and its social media platforms. There are still plans to produce “106 & Park” specials throughout the year, including the annual New Year’s Eve show, “106 & Party,” along with live event experiences at the BET Awards and BET Experience.

Say goodbye to “106″ by watching some of the nostalgic moments below.

The Bawse woke up bright and early for a visit to “Good Morning America” on Thursday. The hip-hop heavyweight sat down with “GMA” correspondent Sara Haines and shared how his CrossFit RossFit training program helped him shed a whopping 85 lbs.

He decided to make a change to his lifestyle after he suffered two seizures two years ago. “I woke up from that and I was like, ‘Wow, I really need to re-evaluate what I’m doing,’” said Rozay, whose second album this year, Hood Billionaire, debuted at No. 6.

As part of his new diet, he traded alcohol and soda for pears (“Shout out to the pear”) and has been getting more sleep.
Some of the ladies miss the overweight Rozay, but he knows the change is for the better. “I feel I’m fat boy forever. I’m going to always be a fat boy. But it most definitely was just something I had to do,” he said.

One thing that hasn’t changed is his music. “My music comes from the heart, that comes from my mindset,” he said. “After I sit down and absorb this great interview, it’s something that’s gonna come to me that I can put into a record.”

Watch a much slimmer Rozay open up about his dramatic weight loss.

Love hurts. Nicki Minaj has managed to keep her personal life private. But she got emotional while discussing her breakup with her boyfriend of 12 years, Safaree “ScaffBeezy” Samuels.

During her interview with Angie Martinez on Power 105.1, Nicki reflected on her relationship and revealed that she still has love for her ex.
“My relationship was based off of love,” she said. “And there still is nothing but love there. This is not some person I picked up off the street. This is somebody I grew up with. Like I don’t even know how I’m gonna function without that person in my life. I’ve never lived my life as a famous person without him.”

She confides in her girlfriends, but sometimes misses having SB around. “I tell my girlfriends, my best friends, but sometimes I still wanna tell him stuff and get his opinion.”

She broke down in tears as she spoke. “I don’t think people realize it’s not just a relationship or breakup. That was a humongous part of my life,” she told Angie. “It is something that I am dealing with publicly and it’s not easy. I’m also not gonna joke about it or try to disrespect him and try to act like he didn’t mean the world to me and still doesn’t mean the world to me. I’m just figuring it out.”

She admitted that her career and the music industry drove them apart. “If I wasn’t a rapper, we would have children, be married, and be living happily every after. And that’s what we’re both sad about because we know that this shit is what did it.”

While she raps about love and heartbreak on The Pinkprint, most of the tracks including “Bed of Lies” were written while she was still dating SB. “I wasn’t broken up when I was writing a lot of these songs,” she revealed.
There are rumors that she has found a new man in Meek Mill, but she denied that she is dating the Philly rapper. “We’re friends. He’s dope. Shout out to him,” she told Big Boy on Power 106.


When for better turns worst, Reportedly, Tasha Smith and her husband, Keith Douglas, are one step closer to officially ending their marriage. The actress has officially filed for divorce after four years of marriage. Since she reportedly makes more money than her now estranged hubby, she has been ordered to pay spousal support — upfront. According to TMZ, she’s to pay $50K, until a permanent support agreement is hammered out in divorce court.

As previously reported, the two have filed a restraining order against each other.
The Why Did I Get Married? actress previously stated in legal documents that she was fearful of her life. In fact, she claimed that her estranged husband is very jealous and has accused her of sleeping with other women. Reportedly, he’s flown into angry rages, calling her a ‘f*ck*ng d*k*’. She says,

When he’s in a rage, I feel that he is capable of killing me.

In the court documents, Tasha also says that she is fearful that she’ll end up like the wife of actor Michael Jace [ “The Shield” actor allegedly shot and killed his wife]. If necessary, Tasha says that she will have some of her celebrity friends, including Tisha Campbell Martin, confirm her claims of abuse.
Meanwhile, Keith is singing a similar song. He says Tasha flies into alcohol fueled rages and threatens to kill him, warning him to “not fall asleep or something will happen.” He has a restraining order against Tasha in the home that they share, preventing them to stay two yards away from each other. Both deny the allegations the others have made. [TMZ]

I know it's hard to believe but, K. Michelle has made no secret that her latest album, 'Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart' is based on her eight month secret romance with actor Idris Elba.

Breaking his silence Idris owns up to the affair while K dissolves into a crying fit while discussing their ill-fated romance for a recent promo…

K. Michelle had a tough time talking about her affair with Idris on the Russ Parr Morning show the other day and left the studio in tears in the middle of her interview after she was asked why she and Idris broke up.

It’s not really clear what triggered the breakdown specifically, but she seemed to get a bit emotional after expressing that there’s no hatred between them.
“I think people knew [we were seeing each other]. People kind of hinted that around the time of our musical and everything. I don’t think that I’m snitching on him because he doesn’t really hide it. It’s just what I went through and that’s my life. That’s my art and it is what it is.”

“He knows with my music, I’m the Black Taylor Swift. I’m going to write about you and I’m going to talk about you. He really has no choice. Within the last week, I haven’t spoken to him about it. I’m sure he’s a little bothered, but my thing is, I feel like I’ve protected you for so long. 
These are my emotions that I deserve…I have to protect myself and deal with my emotions. I love him and always will.”

“It’s not a hate thing and we don’t hate each other,” said the singer. “It’s a timing thing.”

At this point, K noticeably breaks down.

Meanwhile, as news traveled far and wide that K - The Queen of Rachet was able to pull Idris, the actor himself weighed in on the controversy caused by K's messy admission. He probably thought she was going to take there little tryst to her grave.....NOT!

Netflix is jumping on the Nina Simone bandwagon.

The on-demand content streaming provider announced plans earlier today to produce a documentary on the singer titled “What Happened, Miss Simone,” and release it in the fall of 2015.

The documentary will reportedly incorporate unreleased audio recordings by Simone, spanning more than three decades, plus archival footage of some the singer’s rare performances, mostly shot throughout Europe and Africa.
The project will be helmed by Oscar-nominated director Liz Garbus, best known for her films “The Farm: Angola, USA,” “Bobby Fischer against the World” and “Love, Marilyn.”
 If you all remember, Zoe Saldana wrapped up shooting on a film about Simone’s life last year, however it was not sanctioned by the family and has yet to be picked up for distribution.

Simone’s daughter is expected to take part in the docu-film and released her own statement today saying “’What Happened, Miss Simone,’ will tell my mother’s story in her own words via hours of unreleased recordings, excerpts from her diary and rare interviews. It will be the gift my mother’s fans have been waiting for.”
