Published

Tracee Ellis Ross aka TMurda is still trying to understand the lyrics to some of hip hop’s most popular songs. A couple weeks ago Ross had her Instagram followers in stitches after posting a video of herself rapping along, in sheer confusion, to Rae Sremmurd’s “No Flex Zone.”

Now, Ross is trying out Tyga & Young Thug’s hit track “Hookah.”

The post comes just days after HipHollywood’s Jasmine Simpkins caught up with Ross on the red carpet for EW’s Pre-Emmy Bash, and suggested she do “Hookah” next … and voila.

Check out the hilarious interview, and let us know what song you think Ross should do next.

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.
