Boris Kodjoe might be one of Kevin Hart’s best buds, but when it comes to Hart’s alter ego, Chocolate Droppa, Boris isn’t exactly a fan.

While at the People’s Choice Awards nominations in Beverly Hills this week, The Real Husbands of Hollywood co-star suggested that Chocolate Droppa isn’t very talented.

He told HipHollywood exclusively that Chocolate Droppa, “is self-involved, self-indulged; he is completely, unjustifiably arrogant and conceited; he’s not very tall; he’s very dark, so when you take a picture of him without a flash you’ve gotta have him open his mouth so you can see him.”

That’s when Boris, who is known for his sarcastic ways, expressed, “Other than that, I like him.”

Gotta love it. Surely, Boris was having fun with us regarding Droppa, who, when referring back to his legal name, Kevin, was nominated a handful of times for the People’s Choice Awards.

Just last week, CD dropped the video for his hit “Push It On Me,” featuring Trey Songz. The track, off Droppa’s debut mixtape, Kevin Hart: What Now? (The Mixtape Presents Chocolate Droppa), shows the comedian turned rapper dancing on a rock with a tiger and a bevy of beautiful ladies.

Oh, and the visual has a nice little cameo by the one and only Keri Hilson.

In August, Hart confirmed via Instagram that he signed a major deal with Motown. “If you’re a rapper I suggest you run because I’m about to come for all of you sucka’s,” he wrote. “Y’all just knocked on the door of a small giant that loves chicken nuggets and long walks in the park in the summer….which basically means that I will kill everybody.”

He added, “Real Rap Raw mothaf*cka’sssss…….Who wants war???? Raise yo hand B*tches….that’s what I though….Droppa Motha F*cka’s!!!!!!! #WhatNow #hittingtheatersoctober14th #Droppa #TheBestToEverDoIt TAG YO FAVORITE PUNK ASS RAPPER AND TELL HIM THAT HE OR SHE HAS BEEN WARNED!!!!! GAME OVER MOTHA F*CKA’s.”


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
