The song’s producer DJ Mustard also makes a cameo; “Big Bank” marks a reunion of sorts between the rapper and the producer behind his 2014 debut LP My Krazy Life, after which the two had a much-publicized rift. According to DJ Mustard, the pair made the song “in 20 minutes.”

Stay Dangerous, YG’s follow-up to 2016’s Still Brazy, arrives “Summer 2018,” according to the album’s preorder page. On August 5th, YG will host a Stay Dangerous concert and 4Hunnid fashion show at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theatre; every ticket to the show comes with a digital download of the rapper’s new LP.

Melissa McIntyre played Ashley Kerwin, another past love of Jimmy Brooks and the “perfect girl” who attracts all the guys.

NEW VIDEO: Chris Brown – Hope You Do

Image result for chris brown   hope you do

Chris Brown dropped the video for Hope You Do. The track is featured on Brown’s eighth album Heartbreak On A Full Moon. The video embodies a black and white old school feel. He remakes Donell Jones – Where I Wanna Be with his chorus.

Chris Brown said in a interview with Complex:

I thought Heartbreak On a Full Moon was a depiction of what my soul wanted to say. It’s funny because we’re doing a double album. I’ve done so many records, but all of the records, to me, are personal favorites and I feel like it gets what I want to say across. It gives a vibe. You get nostalgia or you get a sense of individuality.

Kofi Siriboe Brings Awareness To Mental Health in Black Communities

Actor Kofi Siriboe from film Girls Trip and TV Series Queen Sugar has created a documentary called What the Fuck Is Mental Health? tackling the unrecognized issues of mental illness in black communities. In the short documentary a group of young Black speak on their personal experience with mental health and how they have overcome.

Siriboe expressed to Huffington Post about being inspired to make a documentary dealing with mental health:

Making WTF Is Mental Health? Has been a part of the healing process for me, one I’m still exploring. It’s the combination piece to Jump, a short film I made after a mentor and a big brother figure died by suicide, just before I got the call that I’d then cast in Queen Sugar. I started working on this beautiful, emotional show and felt how liberating it was to channel my fears into art. As I began to mold Jump, I realize the true conversation I was craving centered on young black people who are figuring out this mental health thing, too.

He also explains that he wants Black people to express themselves:

Everybody doesn’t have that language and doesn’t understand that there is a community or world out there of people who are dealing with similar things, so I really want to explore what it is and what it means to us. A lot of our project is just asking questions, and I think with the questions they’re able to give us answers and able to define these definitions for ourselves rather than what we are accustomed to being told.

It is no secret that Black people have a hard time expressing themselves. It is however difficult for many people to understand WHY Black people have such a hard time expressing themselves. This documentary is just the beginning of a well needed discussion on mental health in black communities.
