Eminem decided to have some fun with college football announcers during halftime of a Michigan vs Notre Dame football game on Saturday. Mathers was on hand to plug his new video “Berzerk” and seemed to space out for a good minute on live air looking like a deer caught in headlights. When the video was done playing he seemed to awaken from his “trance” and said that “live TV freaks me out.” ESPN’s  Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit seemed to take it in stride and the broadcast seem to go off without a hitch from that point forward.
Congratulations to Serena Williams who beat Victoria Azarenka  to win her fifth US Open title! Check her out in all of her glory in the ESPN video below!

Singer-songwriter Bruno Mars is having one of the best years in his career. After selling out his “Moonshine Jungle World Tour,” it has just been announced he will be headlining the Super Bowl XLVIII. The Super Bowl will take place in New Jersey at MetLife Stadium. Before Mars was officially announced as the performer, many were speculating if it would be him. A spokesman  for the NFL tried to keep Bruno Mars’ performance a secret by joking that both Janet Jackson and Miley Cyrus had both ruled out as performers. The “Locked Out Of Heaven” singer is joining an elite list of artists who have graced the Super Bowl halftime show like Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Beyonce,James Brown, and Prince. http://theurbandaily.com/2013/09/09/bruno-mars-super-bowl-headliner/

Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton recently visited Hot 105 in L.A. where it was revealed that she recorded a song with gospel Hip Hop artist T-Dogg, which was created to let people going through the things that she has been through know they are not alone.

Several weeks ago, I saw comedian W. Kamau Bell, host of the FX show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and he did an entire set on black “homework” movies. He said every few years there’s a black movie that everybody is supposed to see because a bunch of influential black folks are in the movie or political and cultural leaders say it’s important that we support the film. Some black homework movies are actually good, like Fruitvale Station or 42, where you’re entertained and you actually learn something. Sometimes they’re like Red Tails where you realize that just because it’s an historic movie about black people, doesn’t mean the film is actually any good. Fortunately this week Lee Daniels’ The Butler comes out, a movie that is not only worthwhile black homework, but objectively is one of the best movies out of Hollywood in years. Let me preface by saying I would never have gone to see The Butler based on the trailers for the film. Usually, when Hollywood markets a ‘black film' the trailers are geared towards attracting white audiences since the assumption is that black people will pay to see anything with Oprah in it. The trailers…

I worry about the young people growing up nowadays. A fan of the rap group The Clipse got a tattoo of the group's clothing line, Play Cloths, on his forehead.One half of the rap group Clipse, Pusha T, tweeted and Instagrammed a photo of a young man with the Play Cloths logo tattooed in the middle of his forehead. While most artist usually frown upon their fans getting these frivolous tattoos on their faces, Pusha T did just the opposite. Pusha tweeted, "You my son will be blessed forever... @playcloths #PC4LIFE #IKnowTheFlawsOfAllMyChildrenAndYouArePerfect." On Instagram, the caption read, "You sir are a king!! Anyone who tells u different is a liar and there mother didn't want them at birth... @playcloths #PC4LIFE."I* really have no idea what possess people to do things like this. A retweet that will disappear from your timeline in a few seconds isn't worth getting permanent tatto on your face. ButI'm sleep though. Plus, for getting that big tattoo in the middle of his forehead, does that guarantee him free threads from Play Cloths for the rest of his existence? I mean, dude won't be able to find a job anywhere. I feel bad for this kid.  
Jay Z must have really made Kanye West mad about something. Rapper 2 Chainz recently gave an interview where he said Kanye West advised him not to have a Jay Z feature on his upcoming sophomore album "B.O.A.T.S.: Me Time."2 Chainz spoke to DJ Whoo Kid about the making of his album, which is slated for a September 10th release. The Atlanta native admitted he wanted to talk to Jay about getting on a track for the new album, but never did. Jay and Chainz did chop it up at the Wireless Festival in London, but never took the time to directly ask Jay Z about a feature."Hov rocks with people who he respect and who has glimpses of trap on their resume. I'm a recovering d-boy. I'm a recovering d-boy and he is, too," 2 Chainz explained. "I just told him, I don't know if he caught it or not, but basically I was saying, 'Damn. I like that you and Ross record.' That's what I was saying in my head. 'I like that Mike WiLL beat.' Some of them joints, I be thinkin' I could have killed them, 'cause I like his album."2 Chainz went on to explain…
Every time DMX seems like he's getting his life together, something happens to knock him back a few steps. After being arrested earlier in the week, the former platinum-selling rapper filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a New York City court July 29.According to reports from The Wall Street Journal, the man known as Earl Simmons filed documents stating that he had about $50,000 worth of assets while having debt between $1 and $10 million. DMX justified filing for Chapter 11 by saying it would enable him to reorganize his financial affairs. A lot of the debt DMX is in comes from back child support. he owes a little over a million dollars in child support. Another major part of the debt comes from X leasing cars. He owes $20,000 in car payments, which is crazy for someone who hasn't had a legit license in a long time.DMX's publicity rep released a statement, "DMX's financial strains have been inhibiting his career for several years. Poor financial management by prior representation have caused him to be ineligible to retain a passport. The purpose of this bankruptcy filing is for reorganization so he can perform for his fans oversees. We are currently…

Arrest Warrant Issued For Suge Knight

I think it’s time for Suge Knight to give it up and invest in a driver. Suge Knight has not one, but two arrest warrants issued for his arrest. This is a result of Knight driving around Los Angeles with a suspended license.Marion “Suge” Knight had previously had arrest warrants stemming from two separate driving with a suspended license cases. The first case was from 2011 and the second was a case that happened in 2012. Knight failed to appear in court for either date and warrants were issued for $20,000 each.This is the second time these warrants have come to bite Suge Knight. Back in February, warrants had been issued for Knight’s arrest for blowing off court dates. However, before things got too out of hand, he resolved those failed court appearance issues.No one from Suge Knight’s camp has made any comment about the new arrest warrants.
Wow! Kenya Moore was on BET’s red carpet last night and refused to speak to the correspondent from Bossip because according to Kenya,“Y’all don’t say nothin nice”   Oh man! Kenya, the correspondent was trying to make nice with you publicly. You may feel like you won that victory last night but we ask you this, did you win the war? Because if you think Bossip embarrassed you before what in the world do you think is going to happen now? Let’s put it this way, they are the ones who posted the video of you refusing to speak to them.Girl, we say just send an edible fruit basket…who can stay mad with pineapples that look like Hello Kitty? Good luck!
