Suge Knight is in intensive care after being shot multiple times at Chris Brown’s Pre VMA party in Hollywood. Another man and woman were also wounded during the shooting at 1 Oak nightclub on Saturday night.

Knight underwent surgery and is resting at Cedars-Sinai Hospital; the other victims are also expected to survive. Details surrounding the incident are sketchy at best, but we do know Compton rapper Game was involved in a scuffle at the same nightclub earlier in the evening.

Black Eyed Peas star apl.de.ap, model Tyson Beckford and Justin Bieber were also in attendance at the nightclub.

“It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes,” Brown tweeted after the shooting.

Deputy Jeff Gordon says an investigation into the incident is ongoing.

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.
