Some of the biggest names in news and media joined our Kevin Frazier for a special HipHollywood dinner in Orlando.

Guests, including Bishop TD Jakes, Devon Franklin, Pat Harvey, Roland Martin and CNN’s Stephanie Elim, were on hand while HH’s founder explained why it was important to launch the urban entertainment news outlet. “We started [HipHollywood] under the premise that African-American entertainment was being ignored, and there are [great] things that go on in our community,” Kevin shared.

“We need to support each other in a positive way … no crazy rumors, stuff like that … but actually, ‘Hey, there’s a great movie you should watch. Here’s a great book you should read. Here’s a great TV show you should follow,'” Mr. Frazier continued.

“A lot of my Hollywood cats said, ‘Hey, this is so cool because we don’t ever get an opportunity to share our stories and talk about what we’re doing,'” political pundit Roland Martin explained, referencing the importance of websites like HipHollywood. “Folks have always ignored our stories, so we have to tell our own,” Martin continued.

Guests at the event enjoyed cocktails courtesy of Casa Noble Tequila, and left with gift bags provided by Jordan, containing Jamberry nails, Monster headphones candies by Sugarfina and inventions from quirky.com.

Chance The Rapper Debuts New Emotional Song 2 Days After Writing It

Published

Chance the Rapper stopped by the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night and debuted a track he literally wrote two days prior.

During his appearance, the Chicago native expressed that he was going to perform “‘Grown Ass Kid,’ which is an unreleased song from ‘Coloring Book.’” The rapper, however, opted for something a little more personal and timely.

In the untitled track, he raps: “I love television, it’s a pleasant distraction / But just imagine taking action / I love ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ in fact, I’m addicted / But where’s the cop show where one gets convicted.”

Performing alongside collaborator, singer Daniel Caesar, Chance also used his new track to unveil the truth behind fame and how it’s changed his life. “I think my little cousins want their cousin back,” he says. “I miss my mom, I miss my time, I miss my prime, in high school I missed my prom.”

The hook simply states,”When so much turns to too much.”

Watch the full interview and song below.
