Miles Davis Gets A Manhattan Street Named After Him



It was recently announced that Don Cheadle will be playing the late jazz musician Miles Davis in the biopic Kill The Trumpet Player, but that is not the only way that Davis is being honored.

On Wednesday, New York City officials including Mayor Bloomberg, renamed W. 77th St. on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to “Miles Davis Way.” The street was the longtime home of the jazz musician and the location of many of his stoop jam sessions.

Miles Davis died in 1991 at 65-years-old and is considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. This change in street name comes after Davis’ neighbor, Shirley Zafirau, won her longtime battle to get the street name changed in honor him.



From Gangsta To Gospel … Snoop Dogg Shuts Down Critics Of His Spiritual Album



Who says a gangsta rapper can’t drop a gospel album — apparently, the critics.

Snoop Dogg released his spiritual effort, Bible Of Love, today and unfortunately some folks just don’t understand why. Thankfully, we talked to Uncle Snoop and he let the haters know they won’t be dulling his shine.

“My spirit is in the right place,” Snoop proclaimed, “so for those who have backlash or something to say, their spirit ain’t right.” But Unc didn’t stop there, he went on a preached a word right quick … “I thought the Bible said Jesus was in the streets mixing it up with the real, bringing the real back to the fold.” Yep, yep, that’s exactly right!

But just because he has a gospel album doesn’t mean Snoop ain’t still street. “I come from the hood and I come from the church so they can’t out do me,” he reminded us.

Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?

Bible Of Love is available now!
