Lena Waithe and Halle Berry Join BET for Boomerang Sequel

Published

Beloved screenwriter, Lena Waithe, will be joining Halle Berry in the BET 10 episode comedy series of Boomerang. The network wants to be clear in saying that this is a sequel and not an adaptation or reboot. Waithe will be co-writing the pilot with Insecure’s showrunner, Ben Corey Jones. The series is set to follow the children of Jacqueline Boyer and Marcus and Angela Graham as they try to create their own legacy away from their parent’s shadow.

Waithe commented on the goal of the project and said,

“This is less of a reboot and more of a continuation of the original story. There’s no point in trying to remake a classic. It can’t be done. So, we want to create something fresh that speaks to a new generation. We hope people will come to the show with an open mind and ready to embrace the new world we’ve created!”

Oscar-winning actress, Halle Berry, is also excited for the upcoming series saying,

“I’m thrilled to team up with Lena on this project as she is without a doubt a leading voice of her generation and a trailblazer in her own right. I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen.”

Boomerang is going to be one of the first projects announced for BET since former president, Debra Lee, left the company. The new president, Scott Mills, is equally enthusiastic for the collaboration of Berry and Waithe and says, “Partnering an icon such as Halle with a disruptor like Lena is a perfect blend for the creation of a project that tells a classic tale in a relevant voice.”

What do you guys think? Are you excited for the sequel or should they just leave it a movie? Let us know in the comments below.

Ella Mai

Published

on

Ella Mai’s self titled album is a 10 out of 10! Every song is good from start to finish.

First, she had everybody wanting to be Boo’d Up…

Then she had people Tripping…

But now she has everybody talking about this amazing 16 track album.

Ella Mai starts the album off by breaking down her name which is her way of letting people know who she is, but it is a way of people connecting with her beyond the music. I found this to be a different approach for her because I have been listening to Ella Mai before she became mainstream.

One conversation on social media is that people do not like when she starts talking after the song is over but she has been doing this for a while.

Does it bang in the car? The answer is 100% YES. This is an album you can play without skipping a single song. Ella Mai only had three featured artists on the album and that is rare for an artist because almost everybody now has an album with almost everybody featured on it. If you have not listened to the album I would suggest you do!

The Long Awaited ‘Tha Carter V’ “FLOP” or “NOT”

Published

on

4 damn years! After 4 long years, Lil Wayne finally drops Tha Carter V and it sold pretty well despite the mixed reviews that have been floating around. The album was initially scheduled to be released back in May of 2014 but the legal battle with Birdman held him from releasing. After listening I give it a 7 out of 10. When listening it did not give me the Wayne that I was expecting. One tweet, in particular, said exactly what I was thinking.

The #UproarChallenge became popular after social media comedian Shiggy posted him dancing to the song on Instagram.

#Mood : Where The Love Go? 💔🤷‍♂️ @therealswizzz @liltunechi 😂😂😂💯🔥

A post shared by Shoker🃏 (@theshiggyshow) on

Even Wayne’s boys got in on the #UproarChallenge

The songs that stood out the most were Mona Lisa, Open Letter, Hittas, Problems and Used 2. Tha Carter V has some bangers, but if I can’t bang the whole album in the car and have to skip songs there is a problem. Overall the album is a solid good 13 songs.

 

Did the long-awaited Tha Carter V live up to the hype for you? Comment below “FLOP” or “NOT”
