Irv Gotti is doing big things these days. Murder Inc.’s head honcho is not only revitalizing the record label he made famous, but he’s venturing into TV with a brand new show on BET titled Tales.

Described as “a series distilling hip-hop records, envisioning them as cinematic love letters,” Tales is Gotti’s brain child and his way back to the top. And when you’re on top, inevitably, there will be haters. However, Irv’s hater is one he’s had for the last two decades or so — 50 Cent.

With their on-going beef, art may actually end up imitating life. Gotti says episode two of Tales focuses on Meek Mill’s song “Cold Hearted” and tackles issues of jealous and hate in hip hop. In his latest verbal attack, Fiddy claimed he would “slap the sh!t out of” Irv, to which Gotti responded by saying, “Ain’t no one running up on me and slapping me.”

Aside from beef, Irv is really focused on folks tuning into Tales, which premieres Tuesday, June 27th, on BET at 8p/7c. The debut episode is set to explore NWA’s “F- The Police” in a way you might not expect.


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



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.
