Exclusive! Jamie Foxx Raves About Drake’s ESPYs Performance: “Dude Is A Juggernaut”

Published

Drake recently hosted the 2014 ESPY Awards and received rave reviews for his witty jokes and quick commentary. But there is one person that Drake needed to impress … Jamie Foxx.

Following the awards show, the Canadian rapper thanked Foxx for his friendship, mentorship and support … But what did Jamie really think of Drizzy’s hosting skills?

“What people don’t understand is like, Drake is the new prototype of the dude all guy,” Jamie told HipHollywood on Friday night. “When you look at his music and how he writes, when you look at what he did on the ESPYs, he floored people on Saturday Night Liven.” 

“I’m looking forward to him making that transition into movies and everything else. The dude is a juggernaut. That’s my little brother and I’m rooting for him all the time.”

It’s also worth noting that Drake, Jamie and the ESPYS have all come full circle. During the 2003 ESPYs, Foxx dedicated an exclusive song to tennis pro, Serena Williams. “Can I Be Your Tennis Ball” was all about Jamie’s love and passion for Williams. The actor followed up the next year with a part 2.

Drake, who later went on to become good friends with Jamie and take the ESPYs stage just like the actor … Hooked up with Serena. It all came together perfectly.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
