Exclusive: Charlie Wilson To Kanye West “Sit Down And Be Quiet”



When Kanye West and Charlie Wilson get together, magic happens. The duo, who has teamed up on a number of musical projects, never seem to let fans down with their dynamic hits. But when it comes to life outside of the studio, Wilson doesn’t always agree with what the 36-year-old says or does.

While on the red carpet for the taping of BET’s Annual Celebration of Gospel, HipHollywood caught up with Wilson to talk about his relationship with West. When asked if he thinks it’s fair that the rapper gets criticized for his unfiltered mouth and larger than life ego, the 61-year-old explained that he the first to shut Kanye down.

“When he does something wrong, I’m the first one to tell him that he is wrong, ‘Sit down and be quiet. I don’t care if you don’t like it or not,'” Wilson told us.

“I don’t embrace some of the things that he [Kanye] does and some of the stuff he does, I do embrace; which is music. He’s good at that. Sometimes it gets a little out of hand and sometimes he just says ‘I’m just gonna do this kind of music just to inspire people.’ Ok then say that,” Charlie added.

The former lead vocalist for The Gap Band did go on to say that Kim Kardashian’s husband-to-be is incredible at his craft. “I know people get tired of hearing him say he is a genius, but he really is a musical genius. He’s sick with it.”


Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
