Word On The Curb: Wednesday, July 11th “A Kimbo Slice Biopic Is In The Making; August Alsina Opens Up On Red Table Talk; WNBA Players Speak Out; 50 Cent And Papoose Go At It On Instagram.”

BLACK PANTHER STAR WINSTON DUKE WILL PORTRAY KIMBO SLICE IN UPCOMING BIOPIC CALLED, “BACKYARD LEGEND.” WINSTON MADE HEADLINES EARLIER THIS YEAR PLAYING THE ROLE OF M’BAKU IN MARVEL’S “BLACK PANTHER” AND “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.” DUKE SAID,

“I’m looking forward to exploring Kimbo’s story and interrogating the expectations society places on men like him who are their own special breed of hero.”

KIMBO SLICE, WAS A BAHAMIAN-BORN AMERICAN MIXED MARTIAL ARTIST, BOXER, PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER AND OCCASIONAL ACTOR. HE BECAME NOTED FOR MUTUAL COMBAT STREET FIGHTS WHICH WERE SPREAD ACROSS THE INTERNET, LEADING ROLLING STONE TO CALL HIM “THE KING OF THE WEB BRAWLERS.” HE DIED BACK IN JUNE 2016.

JADA PINKETT’S SHOW, “RED TABLE TALK” IS DEFINITELY A SHOW YOU SHOULD GET INTO. ON THE LATEST EPISODE SHE WAS JOINED BY AUGUST ALSINA WHO OPENS UP ABOUT HIS PAST ADDICTION TO PERCOCETS. FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW, PERCOCETS ARE AN OPIOID PAIN MEDICATION. IN THE INTERVIEW AUGUST REFERENCES HOW HE STARTED TAKING THE PILLS. AFTER HIS VERY PUBLICIZED FALL ON STAGE BACK IN 2014 FOLLOWED BY A 3-DAY COMMA, AUGUST RECALLS HAVING AN “ENDLESS AMOUNT OF PERCOCETS.” HE SAID,

“IF YOU ASKED MY BROTHER, ANYBODY … I’M LIKE, RAINING PERCS. OFF MY BODY, OFF MY HOUSE. I WAS LITERALLY RAINING PILLS LIKE SKITTLES.”

DURING THE INTERVIEW JADA REMEMBERS A STORY ABOUT HOW AUGUST USED TO TAKE UP TO 6 PERKS A DAY. IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW YOU DEFINITELY SHOULD CHECK IT OUT.

WNBA PLAYERS HAVE HAD ENOUGH. AFTER LEBRON JAMES SIGNED HIS $154 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT WITH THE LA LAKERS, SOME PEOPLE ARE CALLING OUT THE DISPARITY IN THE PAY GAP BETWEEN NBA ATHLETES AND WNBA ATHLETES. NOW, MANY PEOPLE AREN’T AWARE THAT THE STARTING SALARY FOR THE WNBA IS ONLY $50,000, WHEREAS THE MINIMUM SALARY FOR AN NBA PLAYER IS OVER $500,000. ON SUNDAY, WNBA ROOKIE A’JA WILSON VOICED HER OPINION ABOUT THIS AND TWEETED,

“154M ……….. must. be. Nice. We over here looking for a M but Lord, let me get back in my lane.”

THE WNBA STILL REMAINS HOPEFUL THAT SOME CHANGES WILL BE MADE IN THE FUTURE.

RAPPER 50 CENT IS ALWAYS IN SOME KIND OF SOCIAL MEDIA TROUBLE, THIS TIME HIM AND PAPOOSE TOOK SHOTS AT EACH OTHER ON INSTAGRAM. REMY MA FLAUNTED HER RECENT WEIGHT LOSS WITH A SEXY INSTAGRAM WEARING A BODYSUIT AND JEANS. OF COURSE, 50 COULDN’T HELP HIMSELF AND COMMENTED,

“Damn Remy you lost mad weight, hey slim”

Papoose didn’t take a liking to 50 Cent’s comment on his wife’s appearance. He clapped back, trolling 50’s longtime girlfriend, Daphne Joy, in the process. He said,

“Damn @daphnejoy no wedding yet? If @50cent doesn’t Marry you…I’ll introduce you to my homeboy. He’s more mature.”

AFTER THIS BACK AND FORTH ON INSTAGRAM 50 CENT DECIDED TO BLOCK REMY MA UNTIL SHE CAN LEARN TO CONTROL HER HUSBAND PAPOOSE. WHILE UPLOADING A PICTURE OF HER IN LINGERIE.

IF YOU ARE CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY, YOU ARE IN GOOD COMPANY:

  • CASSIE DAVIS – 54
