This past Friday marked the 16th anniversary of Sean Bell, a man who was fatally shot 50 times by the police just a day before his wedding on November 25, 2006.

His wife, Nicole Bell, is keeping his name alive as she continues to host a Thanksgiving turkey Giveaway in honor of Sean.

NYC Settles Sean Bell Shooting, Pays $7 Mil To Family And Survivors

In 2010, New York City agreed to pay over $7 million to the family and associates of Sean Bell after he was fatally shot in 2006.

Details of the settlement hit the Internet on July 27.

The decision by the city came after two days of intense negotiations in Federal District Court in Brooklyn. Mr. Bell’s estate would receive $3.25 million, and two friends of Mr. Bell’s who were injured in the episode would also receive payments: Joseph Guzman would get $3 million, and Trent Benefield $900,000. The case set off an emotional debate over the use of deadly force by the police and prompted the city to change some of its policing procedures. (New York Times)

A statement regarding the matter has also been released.

“The Sean Bell shooting highlighted the complexities our dedicated officers must face each day. The City regrets the loss of life in this tragic case, and we share our deepest condolences with the Bell family,” Corporation Counsel Michael A. Cardozo said in a statement after the deal was announced. (Wall Street Journal)

In 2008, a New York ruling acquitted some of the officers involved.

Detectives Michael Oliver, Marc Cooper and Gescard Isnora were all acquitted at trial 2008 of criminal charges stemming from the Bell shooting. The cops fired on Bell’s lurching car after mistakenly believing someone inside had a gun and that Bell was trying to run them down. The NYPD still has not decided whether to discipline a total of five officers involved in the shooting. (New York Daily News)

The publicized murder took an impact with hip-hop in the form of G-Unit‘s “Straight Out Of Southside” dedication track and artists like Game speaking on Bell’s memory.

“I reached out to a lot of artists and I told ’em what I was gonna do for Sean Bell and a lot of them just…I got a gang of excuses,” he explained. “Nobody wanna stand up and be a man. We don’t have a problem putting out a mixtape dissing each other but the people that you say or claim to hate so much, which is, or the situation that render us helpless like police brutality, excessive force, people using the shield to really deal the wrong way with human beings, you know, like nobody wanna stand-up for that except me.” (Music Choice)

“Thanks for holding it down and getting me to the ER and my princess for being there with me the whole time. I love you so much.”

Soon after he shared the photo, many of his closest friends and prominent figures in the rap community commented on it to pay their respects. Bay Area rap veteran E-40 shared, “Speedy recovery fam.”

Rich the Kid wrote, “Brother get well.” Grammy Award-winning record producer and actor Leon Thomas III shared, “I’m praying for you, bro.”

Disney+ Drops “Hip-Hop Nutcracker.” Is Colorism Involved?

Disney+ released a trailer for the new original Hip-Hop Nutcracker. The trailer noticeably has a very diverse cast for a hip-hop-themed movie. Most actors and extras in the trailer are from multiple races.

Comments Off on Disney+ Drops “Hip-Hop Nutcracker.” Is Colorism Involved?


Disney+ has recently released a trailer for the new movie reimagining a ballet set, Hip-Hop Nutcracker. However, some fans may find it hard not to notice the lack of darker-skinned actors for a hip-hop-themed movie.

One example is the main characters, actress Allison Holker Boss and Stephen Boss, who are an interracial married couple playing the roles of “Mom and Dad” to a Black daughter.

As the trailer unfolds, cast members are seen dancing and enjoying the holiday season. The cast was mixed with many from different backgrounds, such as Caucasian, Asian, and some biracial.

Black music figure Rev Run from the legendary rap group RUN DMC will serve as the narrator, and early rap pioneer Kurtis Blow will also be featured.

Colorism In Entertainment

A possible speculation is that the film’s casting could be an example of colorism since many cast members in the movie are not Black when the hip-hop community is a predominantly Black art form. Colorism has been a debate in entertainment for decades, with one just example being comparisons between actresses Zendaya and Keke Palmer.

Rapper Ludacris also has an upcoming holiday movie with Disney + called Dashing Through The Snow, where various Black actors will join him.

The Hip-Hop Nutcracker is now streaming on Disney +.

The world has been waiting on Doja Cat to reveal her next musical move.The rapper-singer hasn’t released much music in 2022 but she’s got something in the works which will come out soon. In a new interview with Dazed, Doja says that her next album is coming and is the “real album” which is going to be quite consistent but before that, she plans to share some singles that have nothing to do with the album.“I think what I’ve fallen into is controlled chaos,” she says. “I’m crazy about putting different genres into the same album or even into the same song. There’s songs from a year and a half ago that I made and I’m like, ‘These need to come out.’ I have a project that’s going to be quite consistent, hopefully, which is coming up next and is the real album, the real project. But before that, I would like to put out some singles that don’t really connect to it in any way. They’re just fun things that I would like to put out.”When the interviewer asks if the album is coming, she replies “the album will come and it’ll be its own moment on Earth.” Back in September, Doja had mentioned that her next LP is inspired by “rave culture.”In the latest interview, Doja also talked about some of her recent influences which include: Machine Girl, Deli Girls, Orbital, The Chemical Brothers, Death Grips and a lot of Beastie Boys.“Opus III is a huge inspo for me right now,” she says. “If you wanted a teaser into what I’ve been thinking about, that’s what I’ve been on a lot. And just to make it clear, Beastie Boys is a huge inspiration to me. Beastie Boys will hit you with hard, loud and crazy rap, but they’ll also hit you with real raw 90s punk, which I love, or smooth techno that feels sexy and sleek. And you’ll be like, ‘Where the f*ck did this come from?’”“I want to take some of the beautiful elements of vocal distortion and play those into the music. I don’t know if what I’m doing is going to be pop, but I want to keep that in mind for when I go into the studio,” she continues.

Donald Trump Calls Kanye a “Seriously Troubled Man”

Donald Trump called Kanye West a “seriously troubled man” after receiving backlash over a meeting with him at Mar-a-Lago.Trump mentioned the above in a statement on Truth Social after having dinner at Mar-a-Lago with the rapper along with white nationalist Nick Fuentes. He added that despite promising a meeting alone, Ye showed up with 3 other persons, two of which Trump didn’t know.“So I help a seriously troubled man, who just happens to be black, Ye (Kanye West), who has been decimated in his business and virtually everything else, and who has always been good to me, by allowing his request for a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, alone, so that I can give him very much needed ‘advice’,” Trump wrote in a message posted Saturday to his Truth Social account, reports Rollingstone. “He shows up with 3 people, two of which I didn’t know, the other a political person who I haven’t seen in years. I told him don’t run for office, a total waste of time, can’t win. Fake News went CRAZY!”Several of Trump’s supporters have been critical of the former president for the meeting hosted at his Palm Beach, Florida estate. “I told him don’t run for office, a total waste of time, can’t win,” Trump added in his note on Saturday.In the first 2024 presidential campaign video released on Thursday, Ye gave a “Mar-a-Lago debrief” from his Los Angeles headquarters, saying that, “I think the thing that Trump was most perturbed about was me asking him to be my vice president.” Ye claimed that Trump was also “caught off guard” by the fact that he “walked in with intelligence.”“So, Trump is really impressed by Nick Fuentes,” Ye added. “And Nick Fuentes, unlike so many of the lawyers and so many people, that he was left with on his 2020 campaign, he’s actually a loyalist.”

At this time, NOVÉ is working on his album entitled “OKAY, I’M AWAKE”  and has just released his lead single off the album entitled “Ego is the G.O.A.T”.Speaking on the messaging of the track, NOVÉ shares “Ask yourself this question.

Later in the video, Ye also said the meeting with Trump included him screaming at him by saying that he was going to lose in the presidential election.

“Wait hold up Trump, you’re talking to Ye,” Kanye said jokingly.
