IMG_4002

First & foremost I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the fact that Geisha presented this wonderful idea back in 2013! I wonder why they didn’t make her a cast member ๐Ÿค”

I was scrolling down my TL and I saw a post by Bobby Lytes making the announcement about the Inaugural Season of Love & Hip Hop Miami. I promptly reposted the post on @thechunkychickz IG and I’m glad that I did, because it looks like Bobby edited his original post but we still have ours up on our page check it out!

With that being said I present to you the cast of Love & Hip Hop Miami sans Lattie, Latta and Geisha…

Ok, so first of all kudos to Monami Entertainment I think they did a great job with the casting… I don’t know some of these people but so far it looks like Trick Daddy, Trina, Gunplay, Miami Tip, Bobby Lytes, Veronica Vega, & Shay Johnson will be on the show. I can’t wait to see what Mr. Hoe problems ain’t no problems aka Miami’s very own JT Money of the Poison Clan has to say about his sons relationship with Bobby Lytes! We interviewed Bobby Lytes on the Chunky Chickz Radio Show a few months back and he would not spill the beans about this relationship. ย I can’t wait to see this show.

The Cast of FX’s Snowfall Host Screening at Regal South Beach on July 28, 2017

snowfall-fx-poster

Have you been watching this show?! Well, If you haven’t you need to start!

I attended the screening for FX’s Snowfall that was hosted by the cast a few weeks ago at the Regal Cinema theater on South Beach. Saw a few familiar faces of Miami’s taste maker’s, power players and obviously the cast of Snowfall. Shout out to my girl Elora Mason for the plug!

The heart ofย Snowfall, John Singletonโ€™s new FX series about the origins of the crack epidemic, is Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), a smart, kindhearted teenager who takes care of his mother, keeps the neighborhood kids in line, works nights in a bodega, and sells weed on the side for his uncle Jerome (Amin Joseph). One day, a white friend from his fancy high school in the Valley recruits Franklin to procure more cocaine for his pool party. โ€œYou afraid to go get it, so send a black guy, right?โ€ Franklin says, quizzically. โ€œIโ€™ll be the black guy. Shit, Iโ€™m always the black guy.โ€ Which is how he finds himself in the house of a comical Israeli cocaine dealer (Andrew Howard) who only sells in bulk. And senses an opportunity.

Snowfallย is full of moments like thisโ€”scenes and interludes that attempt to put the complex racial and geopolitical dynamics of the 1980s drug trade in context. Franklin is just one of a revolving cast of characters who see the growing enthusiasm for cocaine in the U.S. as a way to further their own ambitions, while staying willfully blind to the consequences. Thereโ€™s Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a disgraced CIA agent who gets involved in an off-the-books operation with Nicaraguan Contras to try and resurrect his career. And Lucia (Emily Rios), the niece of a drug lord who stages a robbery to fund her own business. In its sprawling consideration of the many different players who kickstarted an epidemic,ย Snowfallย ticks all the boxes of a prestige drug drama. But its characters often feel like ciphers, generic stand-ins for the various factions implicated in cocaineโ€™s rise. Singleton canโ€™t quite get to the core of why these sympathetic and intelligent people would be so willing to risk everything for a business whose ugliest elements seem to horrify them.

I got a chance to interview a few of the cast members on the red carpet check it out!

#MUSICMONDAY AMERIE’S “WHY DON’T WE FALL IN LOVE”

Amerie_-_All_I_Have_album

It was late spring/summer 2002 (15 years ago WOW!) Amerie a 22 year old crooner asked us a simple question. Why don’t we fall in love??? With the side walk as her catwalk the 22 year old strutted as she told us that tomorrow ain’t really guaranteed, and to do anything less than fall in love was well…. Stupid! This holds true today, with so much negativity in this world it would be nice to have someone to come home to at night that is a guaranteed safe space, full of love, support and appreciation.

It’s 2017 and the question still holds true… “Why Don’t We Fall In Love?”

Enjoy the vibes below…
