As reports about Lil Wayne’s health still remain in the news, Tameka “Tiny” Harris tells HipHollywood that Weezy is “ok”.

As we sat down with Tiny she told us that her hubby and Wayne’s good friend, T.I., visited him last night and that the rapper was just happy to be home.

Mrs. Harris also told us that she was the one who told Wayne’s ex-wife, Toya Wright, about the erroneous reports on TMZ. Check out the video below to hear her recall the day she found out about Mr. Carter’s seizures, if the Cash Money camp plans on taking action against TMZ and she even hints that Weezy Baby and T.I. may hit the stage together soon…

Last week was a whirlwind for the Young Money CEO who spent several days in the hospital following a string of seizures. He was released on Tuesday and even felt good enough to tweet his fans and have visitors like Tip.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
