RIP: DJ E-Z Rock Dies
We are sorry to report that according to sources including Rob Base, DJ E-Z Rock has passed away. Not much is known about the circumstances surrounding the death of one of Hip Hop’s Golden Era pioneers. What we do know is that DJ E-Z Rock left us music that will last a more than a life time. E-Z Rock and Rob Base has been the best of friends since childhood and put out their first single “DJ Interview” which led to them signing a recording contract with Profile Records in 1987. “It Takes Two” was a sample laden single that was beloved by pretty much anyone with a pair of eardrums. The song took a totally different approach to how Hip Hop was heard and found commercial success not just on the rap charts but also on regular pop radio as well which was nearly impossible to accomplish at the time. A follow up to the multi-platinum “It Takes Two” entitled “Joy and Pain,” was released and it too was a fan favorite. “Joy And Pain” was also a chart darling and found it’s way to the Top 10 on dance charts as well as making it to #38 on the Hot 100. (Again both very hard to do in the name of Hip Hop at the time.) “It Takes Two” the album would eventually go 7x platinum. They literally were one of the first groups to crossover…and yet they were never considered sellouts for it. At the time Hip Hop artists that crossed over to pop were often times ridiculed but that was never the case with E-Z Rock and Rob Base. Folks understood why their music was popular…it simply couldn’t be denied. You had to get up and dance as soon as one of their tracks hit the radio speakers. E-Z Rock and Rob Base created tracks that made it possible for a new generation to listen to their parents music…but just in another way which kept it all of their own. They had mothers and fathers around the world rushing in to bedrooms to school their children on the original versions of songs. And thus creating music that the whole family could discuss.

Condolences to the family, friends and fans of DJ EZ Rock from Soul 106.3FM

Facing Eviction, Oprah Winfrey's Ex-Stepmom Dishes Dirt
Oprah Winfrey’s ex-stepmom Barbara Winfrey ran to Britain’s Daily Mail to dish the family dirt in a two-part interview. Part two just hit the web and it’s devoted entirely to Barbara’s two cents on the dynamic between Oprah, her boyfriend Stedman Graham and her best friend Gayle King.
Barbara, an educator, was married to Oprah’s father, Vernon, for 14 years.
Among other things, Barbara alleges that Oprah paid her security team to follow Stedman and learn everything about his life. Stedman initially objected, in an argument eight years ago, but Barbara says he’s now so financially dependent on Oprah that he’s “at her beck and call.”
Barbara claims Oprah even bought a warehouse full of Stedman’s books and guaranteed they’d make the bestseller list.
“Once you’re in Oprah’s world, she owns you,” she says.
As for best friend Gayle, Barbara calls her relationship with Oprah “unhealthy.”
Oprah allegedly took the family on an expensive 11-day Mediterranean cruise and didn’t speak to them the entire time. She only talked to Gayle and Stedman.

“Anytime you looked up they were together. To me it was just bizarre.”
According to Barbara, Gayle was frequently the go-between for Oprah’s messages to her father and stepmom, including instructions about how to handle the press. Oprah also tended to speak of herself and Gayle as “we.”
“Sometimes I believe that Oprah is more dependent on Gayle than the other way around. I don’t know what she would do without her friendship and if it’s not more than friendship then they’re certainly giving every appearance that it is,” Barbara said.
And according to Barbara, Oprah is apparently colorstruck, referring to her dad and Barbara as “Negroes” and envying Stedman for his “high-yellow” skin tone.

The Scandal Continues: Columbus Short Given Two Hours To Move Out
After Scandal star Columbus Short was hit with a restraining order from his estranged wife and ordered to move out of their California home, the actor appealed the ruling and headed back to court today seeking permission to move back in, but the motion was denied. According to TMZ, Short was ordered out of the house last week after Tanee McCall-Short accused him of threatening her life during a recent altercation. The judge did rule that he can have brief access to the house on Monday to gather his possessions. He’ll have just two hours to get his stuff and his attorney must be present during the visit. The news comes months after McCall-Short filed for divorce to end their eight-year marriage. It’s the just the latest in personal dramas for Short – he is facing trial for a charge of felony aggravated battery last month following a bar fight, he gave a controversial interviewto the Tom Joyner Morning Show which he later apologized for and after the season finale, his future on Scandal is unclear.

EXCLUSIVE: Columbus Short Responds to TJMS Interview: "I Was Not Drunk Or High"
45th Annual NAACP Image Awards - Arrivals
Columbus Short wants to set the record straight. After his interview last Friday with the Tom Joyner Morning Show didn’t go wasn’t exactly as he may have planned and including his use of the “n” word, he has come forward to explain exclusively to Blackamericaweb.com and the Tom Joyner Morning Show his state of mind. Via his publicist, Short has issued a statement directly to the show. Last Friday [Good Friday], as Scandal fans know, was the night right after the season finale. Short’s character Harrison Wright’s fate was in jeopardy after a confrontation with B613 mastermind Rowan Pope, Olivia Pope’s shady father. The show ended before viewers knew whether or not Harrison had been shot. Short has been going through some changes in his personal life as well. His currently estranged wife, Tanee McCall, recently filed for divorce for the third time, alleging domestic violence on at least two separate occasions. In the most recent one, she says that Short threatened her with a knife and said he would kill her and himself. Short’s interview with the TJMS seemed disjointed and at times confrontational, especially after he was asked how his wife received his new recording “Gave Ya.” In his statement exclusively to the Tom Joyner Morning Show and Blackamericaweb.com, Short says he is apologetic about the interview. Here is his unedited statement in full:
“TJMS, My sincerest apologies for the confusion over my appearance on your show last Friday morning. I am a long time supporter and admirer of The Tom Joyner Morning Show and I was looking forward to an opportunity to speak with you and your audience. Unfortunately, the early morning (approximately 5:45AM Pacific Time) following a late-night event had me at what some describe, less than my best.
To clarify a few of my statements:
1. I rarely use the “n” word and I could not have picked a worse time to do so. I deeply apologize for directing it towards you.

2. Regarding my statements about women being insecure, I am a strong believer and supporter of women and I am always amazed by all that our better halves accomplish. I come from a family of strong black women and I would never discredit or minimize their success. I have the deepest respect for women, their strength and innate beauty. To suggest anything else was never my intent. I simply wanted to emphasize that women have no reason to feel that way and my song, “Gave Ya”, is meant to convey just that.

3. Lastly, just to clarify, I was not high, drunk or otherwise under the influence. I was simply exhausted. After a long day, the early call threw off my schedule. This was no excuse – you and those who support me deserved better. Please accept my deepest apologies for any misunderstandings for that morning call. It would be an honor to appear on the TJMS in the future to set things right with your audience.”

Jay-Z Masters Involved In Alleged Extortion Plot
Jay-Z
A collection of Jay-Z master recordings valued between $15 and $20 million is reportedly the object of a theft and extortion plot, reports TMZ. Law enforcement sources tell the website that producer Chauncey Mahan, who worked with Jay Z from 1998-2002, was questioned Friday in connection with the alleged plot. Jay Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records recorded numerous master recordings between 1998 – 2002. According to TMZ, the masters went missing in 2002. Jay Z and his people assumed they were lost. This past Friday, a number of the masters turned up in Mahan’s storage facility in Northridge, CA. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that he allegedly contacted Live Nation, which has a joint venture with Jay Z called Roc Nation, and said he would either let the tapes go up for auction or give them the tapes for a $100,000 “storage fee.” According to TMZ, Mahan eventually agreed to take $75,000. On Friday, Mahan reportedly went to the storage facility to seal the deal with Jay Z’s people, only to find out the whole thing was part of a police sting. Cops detained Mahan and he agreed to come into the station for questioning. He also agreed to let the LAPD take possession of the tapes until a judge determines ownership, reports TMZ. Mahan was not arrested, but TMZ’s sources say the Beverly Hills PD is investigating the extortion allegations because that’s where Live Nation is based. Also, Jay Z’s people reportedlyfiled a grand larceny complaint Friday with the NYPD and that investigation is ongoing.

Taraji P. Henson : "I Don't Want A Fan, I Want A Man"
She may have been killed off on Person of Interest but that didn’t stop Taraji P. Henson’s flow. She wanted to be written out because she wanted to pursure movies while roles were there for the post-40 actress. Not only did she just host BET’s Celebration of Gospel 2014, she’s in three movies this year, she’s also scored the lead for the Fox show Empire, created by Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels. We caught up with the single mother, Oscar nominee and Howard graduate to talk life, love and her latest movie, the golf drama From The Rough.
Blackamericaweb.com: Tell me about the new movie you have coming out.
From the Rough hits theaters April 25. It’s the true story about this amazing woman Dr. Catana Starks. She’s the first woman to take an all-male golf team to the NCAA Division 1 championship and win. From an HBCU by the way. Her record to this day has yet to be beaten. One her players went on the coach Tiger Woods. This film is in theaters but it was delayed for a while. When you have a film starring an African-American woman the taboo in the industry is that we can’t open films or that they don’t do well. So it makes it very difficult for stories like this to be told. It was hard getting it to this point and we did. We’re only being released in 200 theaters. So for the people who are always saying ‘We want better role models. We want to see women in a better light.’ Go out there and support it.
You’re also in Think Like A Man Too.
It was a lot of fun. A lotta, lotta fun. We filmed it in Vegas. One of the couples gets married. That’s all I can tell you or I’ll have to kill you. They’e been doing like test screenings…we were all in the Bahamas celebrating [producer] Will Packer’s birthday this weekend. Tim Story, the director was there and he told me that people who’ve seen it say it’s funnier than the first one. Some say it’s better than the first one. I can’t wait to see it with an audience. I’ve seen it in bits and pieces and it looks amazing.
What’s happening with Empire?
Well, we did it. It’s in the can. [Lee Daniels]said he had six days to edit it and then turn it in to studio and network. Now we wait. It was amazing. The story is out of this world and if Fox has the guts to pick it up, it will change the face of prime-time television. What? Like that? It’s trying to compete with the cable shows without going all the way there and offending everybody. This show is multi-layered. This show is about a family. So it’s more so Sopranos. You’ve never seen Black people like this, never ever. My character is Cookie and I’m married to Terence Howard’s character, Lucious. We have three sons, we met when we were really young in Philly. We were around 16 when we had our first one. Lucious is all the talent. He’s like this big Jay-Z guy but back in the day to start this record label, we sold drugs. So I get busted on one of the drops and instead of snitching and bringing everybody down she thought about her family. Lucious couldn’t go to jail, because he’s the talent and what about my three sons? So she decides to sacrifice and she goes to jail for 17 years. Nobody comes to visit her but her one son, who is gay. We’re attacking the whole taboo of being Black and gay. Black people just don’t deal with it. We shun our sons when they come out. I think it’s gotten better, but it’s still a problem in the Black community.
Who else is dealing with that on prime-time television?
If you notice all my tweets about it and Instagrams, I never hashtag Fox because I’m not hashtagging anything until the ink dries. I read something really interesting today online.
We’re coming up on graduations and you went to Howard, right?
I read a story about a woman who has a graduate degree from Harvard who said being at an HBCU really prepared her for Harvard as well as for life.
Can you speak to that?
I think going to an HBCU is where I found my identity as an African-American woman in the world. When you go to public school they don’t really teach you anything about your history. Yeah, they call us African-American but what does that really mean? Africa is such a huge continent. I didn’t really get a full understanding of who I am as Black woman in America until I went to an HBCU. And then training in theatre at an HBCU was even better because there you got to play roles that Hollywood would never let me play. It enhanced my creativity as if I went to Harvard and they decided to do The Taming of the Shrew. I would have never played the lead role in that. I would have been in the chorus which makes you believe you belong there in life. I know I’m #1 on the call sheet. I know I belong in the forefront. I know my talent and because I went to an HBCU they nurtured that.
You were recently on the Tom Joyner Morning Show saying that you are not engaged. But is it easier or harder to date as a celebrity/actress?
Where did that even come from? It’s so hard. It’s so hard. And the more my star rises, the harder it gets. You just don’t know what people’s agendas are. But I know. I’m a good reader. That’s made it harder for me to date because a lot of guys are so infatuated by me because of what I do. And I don’t want a fan, I want a man. I want a man who’s going to call me on my stuff and say ‘No babe, you’re wrong and not care that I’m the actress. Admire that and be proud of it but that’s not who I am. I’m a real person.
So where do you find your dates? Do you have the same pool that any other women does or if you date a garbage man are you going to get blown up on the blogs because of it?
I don’t even care what people say but in my experience of dating men that are not the breadwinners, it’s a problem. And I can say that from experience. I have been in a relationship where I was the breadwinner and it became a problem. They get insecure and they say little things. I’ve been around before social media took off so I’ve seen this whole shift. Whoever the guy is, he has to be secure and it’s hard to do that with everybody all up in your business. We’re all beautifully flawed but your baggage has to match mine. (Laughs).
You went through the whole Oscar campaign season. Watching Lupita go through it, do you have any advice for her down the line?
Keep smiling. Just keep smiling. As fast as it comes is as fast as it goes. And just stay relevant. When was I nominated? I’m still relevant. I’ve got three movies out this year. That’s what it’s all about. It’s not about that one moment.

COMMENTARY: Howard University Made The Right Choice With Diddy
Not everyone is pleased that Sean “Diddy” Combs plans to deliver the commencement speech at Howard University on May 10. In fact, some black folks are actually scratching their heads in disbelief. They took to Twitter to ask Howard University officials to explain their decision. Some argue that Howard should have selected a Howard graduate to deliver the high-profile address; others complain that Combs dropped out of Howard and should not be taken seriously. “Can someone explain why Diddy, a person who never graduated from Howard, is speaking at graduation?” one person tweeted. Even some current Howard University students are annoyed. There are reports that some are up in arms because Diddy failed to graduate and they believe he isn’t a worthy role model. I don’t see the problem — and I agree with Howard University’s decision to invite him. Combs – rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur — is a phenomenal American success story who also happens to be Black. The winner of three Grammy Awards, Combs runs all of his business interests under the company Bad Boy Entertainment Worldwide, which includes Bad Boy Records; the clothing lines Sean John & Sean by Sean Combs; a movie production company; and two restaurants. Combs is also the recording executive, performer and producer on the MTV reality show Making the Band. According to Forbes, he’s the richest personality in hip-hop with an estimated net worth of $700 million. And last year, Combs created an all-music TV channel, Revolt, hoping it would become the ESPN of music. It airs in about 20 million U.S. homes. “Right now my focus is Revolt and making it the number one, most-trusted, most credible worldwide brand for music,” Combs told Forbes in a recent interview. “And to get Revolt to be the quintessential definition of real time. I think that’s the future.” Combs, who attended Howard University in 1990, has plenty of knowledge and wisdom to share with seniors at Howard who are heading out to search for jobs in a highly-competitive global marketplace. While at Howard, Diddy commuted from D.C. to New York for a chance at working in the music business. When it paid off, he left school to pursue his dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Who better to give Howard students first-rate advice and send them out into the world feeling confident about their journey? As a successful businessman, Combs can speak about creating businesses that thrive. As a prosperous businessman, he can talk about money management, balancing the books, and staying on top of finances and as a mogul juggling multiple companies, Combs can stress the importance of time management. Combs can also talk about why he founded Daddy’s House Social Programs, an organization to help inner-city youth that includes tutoring, life-skills classes, and an annual summer camp. “We are honored to have Mr. Combs serve as our speaker,” Howard’s interim President Wayne A.I. Frederick said in a prepared statement. “His entrepreneurial spirit was sparked at Howard. We know he will inspire our class to work hard and to always strive for excellence.” One final point: Some black folks are suggesting that Combs cut Howard a check before he leaves campus. It would be great if Combs would share some of his wealth with Howard University, but it’s not a requirement for his speech. It’s no secret that Howard is experiencing fiscal challenges, like many other historically black colleges across the country. A vice-chairwoman of Howard University’s board of trustees told the board in a report published last year that the school “is in genuine trouble” because of financial and management problems. “Howard will not be here in three years if we don’t make some crucial decisions now,” Renee Higginbotham-Brooks wrote in her letter. All Combs was asked to share was his life experiences, provide them with valuable guidance for the real world, and inspire them to reach their goals. That should be enough. What do you think?

Common Leads Efforts To Help Chicago Youth With The Launch of AAHH!
*Rapper/actor Common is doing his part to help youth in Chicago with the launch of AAHH! Fest. The first annual event will be held Sept. 20-21, 2014 and feature an all-star line-up of performers from across the country. In addition, AAHH! Fest will include a job-shadowing program that will allow youth to learn about the many operations associated with producing high-level outdoor events. AAHH! Fest is one of two projects organized by Common’s Common Ground Foundation, Donda’s House, Inc. and the Chicago Urban League. Others involved in the effort include Alternative Schools Network (ASN), Centers for New Horizons, and the Chicago Jobs Council. Common, along with fellow rapper Rhymefest, who serves as the creative director for Donda’s House, and the Urban League’s CEO Andrea Zopp was on hand Thursday to announce the launch of the AAHH! Festival and Chicago Youth Jobs Collaborative. Both projects are dedicated to supporting Chicago youth and organizing resources to secure year-round jobs for young people ages 16 to 24. For Common, the chance to obtain a job is something that’s priceless in laying the foundation for a worthwhile future. “I am very proud to be where we are,” the rapper said during a press conference at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. “I know what a job can do for a human being. It takes up your time for something productive. If we get these kids jobs, I guarantee: we’ll see less crime in the streets. But we have to be the change.” “Our goal is to give youth the platform they need to express themselves, said Donda’s House executive director Donnie Smith said about AAHH! Fest. “This festival allows us to shine a light on the talent that exists and to push back against the negative narrative about our city’s youth. News of the festival comes amid troubling times for youth in Chicago. A University of Chicago study found that over half of the victims of gunfire in Chicago are between the ages of 10 and 25. The report further noted that young minority males are vastly over-represented as both victims and offenders of gun violence. Some of the factors that result in the gun violence poverty and mental health problems. The other project that Common and Rhymefest have aligned with is the Chicago Youth Jobs Collaborative. The venture, which is set to launch in the fall, seeks to provide jobs to a minimum of 1,000 young people with plans to increase that number each year over the next four years. Overall, The Collaborative hopes to positively impact 15,000 young people over the next five years. “In addition to providing financial resources and a strong work ethic, jobs keep youth out of harm’s way,” stated Zopp. “We issue a call to action to the public, private and non-profit sectors. Summer jobs provide tremendous opportunities, but we often hear strong pleas from young people for year-round jobs.” Proceeds from the AAHH! Fest will support the Common Ground Foundation, Donda’s House, Inc., arts education programs in Chicago Public Schools, and the Chicago Youth Jobs Collaborative.

Columbus Short Involved in Real-Life Scandal With Estranged Wife
He may be a gladiator on TV, but in real-life, Columbus Short is creating scandals of his own. The star of the ABC TV show Scandal which airs its season finale Thursday night, was already accused of being in the middle of a bar fight a few weeks ago.
Now his off-again, on-again wife, Tanee McCall has filed for divorce for the third time and accused the choreographer turned actor of threatening to kill her and himself.
According to TMZ, McCall alleges that Short came into their bedroom on April 7 with a wine bottle and threatened to hit her with it before pouring its contents over her. After getting a knife, he forced her onto a couch and told her they were going to play Truth or Truth and if he she lied, he’d stab her in the leg.
She says he told her to name the man she was having affairs with and when she denied having any affairs, that’s when he threatened her and when she tried to flee, he slashed her tire.
McCall was granted a restraining order and TMZ says Short was allowed to move out, with the supervision of LAPD.
The couple has a 2-year-old daughter which McCall has filed for full custody of.This is Short’s third domestic violence incident with McCall and he’s already been charged with criminal domestic violence. When paparazzi caught them out at the Grove in L.A. a few weeks ago, the couple seemed fine…at least while cameras were rolling.
No word yet on how this affects Short’s job on Scandal.
As you remember, Rhimes fired another Black male cast member from one of her shows several years ago. Grey’s Anatomy’s Isaiah Washington was let go when it was alleged he used a gay slur when referring to a fellow cast member.

Karrine Steffans Helps Mentor Montana Fishburne's Start Over
Can Super Head be a good Mentor?
*Two of a kind find each other! Karrine Steffans is Montana Fishburne‘s mentor while she starts over after starring in an adult film. Steffans herself is a former video vixen and starred in her own porno as well. So it only make sense Fishburne turned to Steffans in her life’s transition. Fishburne slammed the adult entertainment industry last year (after realizing she wasn’t going to be the next Kim Kardashian). Montana Fishburne shocked the world (including her father Lawrence Fishburne) back in 2010 after starring in her own porno with pornstar Brian Pumper — thinking she could become famous like Kardashian. Yeah, that didn’t work out so well for her. And she admitted to regretting the decision. But no need to fear, Steffans is here… to help Fishburne put her life back together. Fishburne has a new direction as a certified personal trainer (like her mother). Steffans — the author of “Confessions of a Video Vixen” and four other books — gave Fishburne a job as a contributor to her blog, “I Am So F’n Gorgeous.” “It may seem like a stretch to you but physical fitness and health are major parts of Montana’s life. The kid knows her stuff! Now, is she bat s—t crazy otherwise? Maybe. But we’re not here for her life advice; we’re here for toned abs and an ass that won’t quit,” Steffans said. Having gone through what Fishburne is going through, Steffans is helping in the process of building her back up! “So, give her a chance,” she challenged, before adding: “I am not trying to convince you she is worthy of respect; I am trying to convince her.” Read more at http://www.eurweb.com/2014/04/karrine-steffans-helps-mentor-montana-fishburnes-start-over/#zcBByTtX5HL5FG4g.99

Matthew Knowles Fails at Child Support; Beyonce's Half Brother is Homeless!
*In the photo above, Nixon Alexander Knowles – and his mother, Alexsandra Wright - have emotional moments as they have to move out their home. The mother-son-duo are putting their belongings in storage and are temporarily moving into a shelter. And it’s all because Matthew Knowles has failed to pay Wright child support. Knowles’ child support payments were reduced last month to $2,485 a month, but he has to make up for his missed payments. The former manager of daughter Beyonce made $127K last year instead of the $3M he made a year as her manager. His expenses are still $51K a month and he now has to make liquid his assets in order to make up for the shortfall. Knowles owes $44,289.32 in back child support (as of March 1) — leading to the state of California preparing to file contempt charges. “The state’s file is mostly prepared. He has now been served with several documents regarding cases being opened from various agencies.” But of course, he denied owing child support and said some paperwork was messed up. But this situation has always been a mess!

  First, he’s never met his son, Nixon. Wright telling Inside Edition’s Jim Monet, “you’ve seen more of my son than he has.” Secondly, his daughters, Beyonce and Solange, no longer speak to him since he cheated on their mother Tina Knowles with his mistress. Thirdly, Wright and her son have to wait to receive the back child support in order to make their next move.
