50 Cent Reacts To New COVID Suggestion To Film Industry

 


The Los Angeles health department is urging film and television productions to implore stopping for the next little while as the pandemic continues to rage on but, with 50 Cent currently in the midst of several different shows, including Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Black Mafia Family, and more, he's not down to pause for another lockdown.


As cases continue to rise, the L.A. health department is asking the television and film industries to lead by example, asking them to stop shooting for the time being until things are more under control. One of the movers-and-shakers in the industry, 50 Cent is seemingly very frustrated about these guidelines, waking up and immediately "needing a drink" upon reading the reports.

Why Redd Foxx Quit 'Sanford & Son'


Redd Foxx would break records as Fred Sanford on 'Sanford & Son' for 6 seasons. Despite the show's success there appeared to be drama on the back end which resulted with Redd Foxx quitting the show.

After season six ended in March of 1977, Foxx accepted an offer from ABC to host a variety show and quit Sanford And Son. When NBC rejected Demond Wilson's request for a raise to continue without Foxx, he too decided to leave, taking the lead in the CBS sitcom Baby, I'm Back.

Why Is Scareface The Most Loved Movie In Hip-Hop Culture?


The movie Scareface has been a huge staple in the hip hop community. Even rapper Jay-Z has dedicated countless rap lyrics and interludes to the film. The release of Scarface coincided with the rise of hip hop music.

The hip-hop community has single-handedly made the movie a cult classic. Even though the story of Tony Montana, a poor Cuban immigrant who quickly ascends through the ranks to become a drug kingpin, is actually a remake of a 1932 film of the same name.

Perhaps no movie has had as conspicuous an impact on hip-hop, and more specifically the genre’s gangsta  variation, as “Scarface,” Brian De Palma’s 1983 crime saga about the rise-and-fall of a Cuban refugee who  becomes a powerful Miami drug lord.  Since its release, “Scarface” has lent its dialogue, music, fashion and  imagery to countless rap artists and their songs, such as Notorious B.I.G’s “10 Crack Commandments” and Mobb  Deep’s “It’s Mine.”

The 20th  Anniversary Special Edition DVD of “Scarface,” released in 2003, also includes a short documentary on how the  film has influenced hip-hop culture and music, consisting mainly of interviews with many prominent hip-hop  personalities and delving into the impact “Scarface” has had on their lives and careers.

Even from the most basic observations, one can easily see why a film like “Scarface” has seized the imagination  of pop-culture in general and hip-hop culture in particular.  On the surface, there is the celebration of  indulgent wealth and conspicuous consumption that characterizes much of gangsta rap, as exemplified by Tony  Montana’s garish chest medallions, designer outfits and Porsche coupe.


In  some ways, this description can also be applied to gangsta rappers, who, as part of their craft, create public  personas that can also range from “brilliant” to “unforgivably flamboyant” (artists such as Tupac Shakur and 50  Cent come to mind).

In framing Tony Montana’s origins around the 1980 Mariel Boatlift, the film also manages to slip in a political  dimension to the issue of violent crime, by thematizing Tony’s status as an impoverished refugee.  This shares  with hip-hop the desire to address disfranchisement and disempowerment as a social problem, as many rappers  with origins in ghettos can relate to Tony’s status as a social and economic outsider.

Will Smith To Exec-Produce ‘The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ Reboot


Will Smith has signed on as executive producer for a dramatic reboot of his ’90s sitcom, “The Fresh Prince of Bel- Air.” Morgan Cooper will co-write and direct the project, after he created a 2019 trailer for the concept that went viral and caught Smith’s eye.

The show’s reportedly being shopped to streaming outfits. Ever wonder what The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air might look like if it suddenly returned to the airwaves in 2019? Well, given Hollywood’s current penchant for giving everything a “dark” and “gritty” backstory, it would probably look quite a bit like this superbly made fan film by director Morgan Cooper. Simply titled Bel-Air, it gives Will Smith’s young “Will” a considerably more dire origin story while keeping all of the major Fresh Prince beats intact.
