Happy Birthday, Kevin Frazier!

HipHollywood’s head honcho turned the big 5-0 today and in honor of such an exciting milestone Kevin Hart felt the need to take his shirt off. “I wanted to give you a birthday message with my shoulders out,” the Let Me Explain comedian shared in a video to Frazier. Looks like the “Kevins” really did bond when The Insider host was a guest on Real Husbands of Hollywood.

But, the well wishes didn’t end there. Mr. Box Office star Bill Bellamy also had a special message for Kev…with his shirt ON!

And of course, the HipHollywood family wants to say congrats to the big man on reaching half a century. Now, how about you take a vacation day already!

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.
