Did Rap Kill The Black Male Singer?

March 17, 2009

Props to my mom for sending this over to me. Word Mama Benhameen dropping knowledge on yall. Definitely a worthy read.

How many of you know who the best selling Black male singer in the world for 2008 was? I bet you’ll never get this right, without a few clues. Well, he’s 50 years old, considered washed up and too controversial to sell, plus the majority of his songs are more than 25 years old. It’s Michael Jackson, who sold more than Usher, Chris Brown, Ne-yo, John Legend, and Seal. The King of Pop sold nearly as many records worldwide as the #1 best-selling artist in the US regardless of race, Lil Wayne, whose genre of hip hop lost 19.8 percent in sales from the previous year. Michael Jackson’s song catalog sold 2.9 million copies with Thriller 25 topping over 2.3 million by itself, plus Michael didn’t even promote it and performed nowhere! Shocking isn’t it! (Lil Wayne sold nearly 3 million)

Kanye, Taraji, & Sanaa on Family Guy Spin-Off

March 17, 2009

kanyetarajisanaa

So it looks like it was confirmed that Kanye will be a character on an episode for the upcoming Family Guy spin-off, The Cleveland Show  after all. Sanaa Lathan, will be a regular on the show playing Cleveland’s wife, Donna. Also Taraji P. Henson will be playing a character on the same episode that Kanye will be featured on and that episode will air sometime in 2010.

And would the producers ever have Grammy-winning West back on the show? “We just recorded him in the booth and he was fantastic,” says Appel. “Once he read it a couple times through, he just owned the character, which I guess isn’t hard since he was named Kenny West. He said he’d be glad to [be back.]. I said we could write him in to the next 21 episodes!”

The Cleveland Show is set to premiere on FOX in the fall of 2009. As a Family Guy fanatic, I cant wait for this.
