So, The Donald won and now we all must deal. And while that may be a bit easier for some folks, comedian Tony Rock says he’s a little fearful of what the future could hold under the Trump presidency.

Rock stopped by the HipHollywood Loft to chat about his upcoming HBO All Def Comedy special, but the conversation quickly turned to the shocking news of Donald Trump’s defeat over Hillary Clinton. “He’s kinda smart because he’s reaching out to a core people that are going to get him into the White House,” Tony admitted. But, it’s that core group that also makes him uncertain of what’s to come. “That’s the thing that makes me a little fearful,” Rock revealed, “I don’t know how cops are going to feel now, I don’t know how judges are going to feel now … and I don’t know how Black people are going to feel now. Black people might feel like now we got to amp it up too because they’re coming after us.”

See more of our exclusive interview with Tony Rock on HipHollywood Friday, and catch his All Def Comedy special when it airs on HBO, Saturday, November 12th at 10 p.m.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
