'You've Got to Lead By Example': Yung Joc Reveals He's a Rideshare Driver, Refuses to Be Shamed for It

'You've Got to Lead By Example': Yung Joc Reveals He's a Rideshare Driver, Refuses to Be Shamed for It

If tabloids have taught us anything, it’s that life after fame isn’t always glamorous.

In 2018, The Cosby Show star Geoffery Owens became the target of relentless ridicule after it was discovered that instead of continuing his acting career, he was gainfully—and happily—employed at Trader Joe’s in order to provide for his family.

Disney, Netflix React to Georgia’s Anti-Abortion Ban

Disney, Netflix React to Georgia’s Anti-Abortion Ban

As the country’s top producer of pecans, peanuts, and trap music, the state of Georgia is a bit of a paradox—case in point, it’s the birthplace of both the civil rights movement and the televised antics of Stevie J. and Karlie Redd.

But beyond its affable veneer, the state is also now home to a draconian abortion law that makes it illegal to have an abortion once a “fetal heartbeat” has been...

T.I., New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Join Forces to Bail Out Nonviolent Offenders for Easter

T.I., New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Join Forces to Bail Out Nonviolent Offenders for Easter

I spent my Easter Sunday deviating between inhaling jelly beans and watching Kanye pass out communion wafers through a peep hole. But it looks like recording artist, community activist and serial entrepreneur T.I. spent his Resurrection Sunday being far more impactful.

The Hill reports that the Trap Music Museum founder joined forces with New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and Love and Hip...

Conk Fight: Days After Usher Debuts a New 'Do, Yung Joc Says 'Hold My Beer'

Conk Fight: Days After Usher Debuts a New 'Do, Yung Joc Says 'Hold My Beer'

Looks like 2019 is officially starting off with a bang—a blue, side-swept bang, to be specific.

After Usher debuted a very retro pompadour hairstyle on New Year’s Eve, rapper, producer and auntie-hair aficionado Yung Joc took to social media to ask “Who Is the Real King of Hair & Fleek?” (No, really. That’s what he asked, verbatim.)

Clearly rattled by a new challenger for the crown, Joc opted...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5 Reunion Shows Recap

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5 Reunion Shows Recap

I would cook up come elaborate explanation for my multi-week vacation, but I am unable to tell a lie: I spent the time offering spiritual guidance to Bow Wow. After much prayer and fasting, he has come to terms with the death of his career. Ase.

Also coming to the long awaited end of its road this week was Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5. Yes gawd, after 49 months of ignorance, white jaysus...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5, Episode 2 Recap

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5, Episode 2 Recap

There comes a time in the life of every reality show when its producers decide to abandon reality lite in favor of wholesale mythology. Love and Hip Hop Atlanta has chosen Season 5 to make this transition, offering us drama that’s about as real as the odds of Tammy Rivera having a successful fashion line. That is to say, completely and totally fictional.

Episode 2 opens with Tiarra, aka...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5, Episode 8 Recap

It’s been a long week, what with the demise of the Mimi/Stud Bae union and the consequent loss of opportunities to reflect on the morning mist that was her hair. Fortunately, this week’s episode of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Season 5, delivered enough replenishing shade to help me push on to see what the end will be. Praise white jaysus!

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5, Episode 5 Recap

In typical Atlanta style, temperatures have shifted from sligthly balmy to Satan’s ball’s hot in a matter of a few weeks. Fortunately, Mona Scott is available to provide ample shade, as we saw on the latest installment of Foolishness and Fuckment, better known as Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Season 5. This week saw the triumphant returns of Stud Bae and “Yung” Joc (note to self: cancel Amber...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5, Episode 12 Recap

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5, Episode 12 Recap

Fresh off the cacophony of questionable outfits, poor hosting skits and octoroon overcompensation that was the BET Awards, VH1 brought us an extra lit episode of Our Daily Shade, also known as Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Season 5. Is it me or did Mona try to stuff everything under the sun into this episode - which simultaneously explored the reunion of Mimi and Stevie J, renewed Joseline’s...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Season 5, Episode 7 Recap

The saying goes that all good things must come to an end - fake lesbian relationships, faker hetero marriages, 20/20 vision, etc. Mona Scott managed to bring an end to all of the above and then some with the latest episode of Love and Script Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5. The most recent installment of “As The Ancestors Weep” brought talk of the end of Stevie J. and Joseline’s *air quotes*...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season Five Premiere Recap: Mimi Must Have Been Lonely

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season Five Premiere Recap: Mimi Must Have Been Lonely

After a break lasting just long enough for us to realize that Stevie J and Joseline’s fantasy of youth and relevance could NOT carry an entire show, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta returned for a new season Monday night. Our favorite ATL-based urban drama premiered with promises of paternity stunts, tragic weaves, cat fights and even a little taste of the rainbow. (Insert extreme side eye.) More on...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5, Episode 3 Recap

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. And even our favorite bogus “reality” show accidentally touches the truth once in a while, as Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5 proved Monday night with an episode brought to us by the letter #frfr. This week’s journey into black shame shed light on some of the most pressing questions of our time – namely, who believes Scrappy can launch their...

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5, Episode 6 Recap

Just when I thought Mona Scott didn’t have a single lick of respeck to put on our collective names she goes and surprises us with a Mother’s Day gift: The gift of restful sleep. A day early and allegedly in honor of the national celebration of mothers, Mona gave us the TV equivalent of a Xanax in a thoroughly lethargic installment of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5. Sunday’s *air quotes*...

Lawd, black people ain’t got nothin but jaysus! When I tell you it all hit the gotdamn fan this past week for the puppets cast of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Season 5!

Who Can Stay and Go on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta

Who Can Stay and Go on <i>Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta</i>

We have reached the end of another season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, and therefore it is time to evaluate everyone’s usefulness. Some cast members gave their all and were a delight, while others gave their all and I couldn’t give a decimal of a damn about them on this show. Feel free to chime in as you see fit—and many of you (understandably) may want to start your prayer circle for...

Didn’t We Almost Have It All, Joseline Hernandez?

Didn’t We Almost Have It All, Joseline Hernandez?

Five years ago, a woman dressed like Sensational Queen Sherri from the pro-wrestling world was introduced to me as Joseline Hernandez, the self-professed Puerto Rican Princess and then-sidepiece of the legendary producer Stevie J.

Joseline had dreams of becoming a rap star, and while she was one of the biggest messes I had ever seen on reality television (a feat even in 2012), I, along with...

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Is Back: Kirk Is a Nasty Thot and Folks Can’t Keep Out of Joseline’s Womb

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Is Back: Kirk Is a Nasty Thot and Folks Can’t Keep Out of Joseline’s Womb

Midway through the last season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, I started to hear Beyoncé’s voice: “I’m through with it/Through with it (love)/I’m finally giving it up.” While I love my Negro telenovelas, the previous season was not up to par. It had a bunch of new folks whose problems I didn’t care about, and in terms of the fake-fake, some of those random losers were making LHHATL the television...

Beloved, Fix My Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta

Beloved, Fix My Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta

While there is no confirmation about reports that the entire cast of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta has been fired, I do know that after the latest season of the hit reality series, something’s gotta give. For years now, LHHATL has been my favorite Negro telenovela, but I’m not enjoying it as much as I used to. Like, watching the last 12 episodes has been the equivalent of arriving at the fish fry...
