Finally, the story of the worlds most dangerous and contraversial Hip Hop group will make it to the big screen this year. Directed by F. Gary Gray and with help from original group members, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and DJ Yella along with Ice Cube’s son playing the part as Cube, this can’t miss. Other members the Compton, California based rap group, of NWA included founder, Easy E, who died from complications due to AIDS in 1995 and MC Ren. Dr. Dre, who just became the richest Hip Hop entertainer in the history of Hip Hop thus far, took to Instagram with news of the release date, so its confirmed for this August. We can’t wait!
True gems aren’t found in clear view, but somewhere buried amongst all the dirt that surrounds it. That sounds something like a line that would be uttered from Rafe, the wise, courageous and righteous robber character in the newly popular web series, Money & Violence. A true gem is exactly what Money & Violence is, as it addresses what Motivation (whom also plays Rafe), the creator, director and writer aims to expose in his depiction of “the new Brooklyn“. Shot with one camera and a boom mic, Motivation took his own motivation and a few friends without any acting experience from Brooklyn a long way to some 3 million plus views on Youtube and its parent site, Cloud9TV. All this and he’d never been behind a camera nor had any training in film editing.
As the mainstream public is now just getting acquainted with the cast and their personalities, the world awaits the season finale of Money & Violence, and the question begs to know whats next for Motivation, his team and the M&V franchise/series. Here at STEEL Magazine, we’d bet our last dollar on a major network outlet’s interest real soon. Either that or Rafe and crew just might have another “job” on their hands.

Hollywood seems to be making the US government upset with what has been hitting the big screen and tv lately. But in the wake of the Sony Email Hacking Scandal, there’s one particular movie that’s gotten a group of hackers that goes by the name of ‘The Guardians of Peace’, all bent out of shape. This Christmas, Seth Rogan and James Franco are set to star in ‘The Interview’, a comedy that puts the actors in a situation to assassinate the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un. As a result of making the North Korean leader the butt of the joke, it has been speculated that the Terrorist group (GOTP) has origins in North Korea and have issued terror warnings to major theater chains across America to not premiere the movie or else suffer bombings, etc. Immediately, theater owners made the decision to not show the comedy premiere, but the regular showing of the movie’s opening night remains to be Christmas Day, December 25th. It’s said that Sony stands to lose more than $100 million by not releasing the movie on its planned date. Could this be a marketing ploy to build up anticipation? Does Guardians of the Peace really exist, from a terroristic point of view? Does The North Korean leader, Kim Jung-Un really care? And why hasn’t Sony yet opted to partner with Netflix to stream the movie on its said release date?
Just something to ponder as we wish upon a star, that we were gifted with the opportunity to see what seems to be a potentially great movie. The Interview. Happy holidays…still.
What better way to teasers than with a 15 second video, obviously made for Instagram consumption. Needless to say, we’re ready for Season 3!
Miami’s infamous Club Liv found rapper Drake involved in a scuffle with CEO and rapper, Sean “Diddy” Combs this past weekend. Sources say that Diddy delivered 3 blows to Drake, that were long overdue as a result of a song track that fell into the wrong hands. The track in question was made by producer “Boi 1da”, pronounced Boy Wonder, and used by Drake for his Grammy nominated song, “0 to 100″. It’s been said that the producer had given the track to both artists some months ago, but Drake used it first without alerting Diddy.
If you love Marty Kaan, the character played by Golden Globe Nominee, Don Cheadle, then you’re extremely excited about his release from prison and return to the marketing world. January is gonna be HOT!
