Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma beef aside, Queen Latifah still believes there is U.N.I.T.Y (pun intended) in the female rap community.  HipHollywood caught up with her at the press day for Girls Trip where she talked about the need for female MCs to support each other.

“I don’t think there’s no unity, just because a couple of rappers are not feeling each other,” she said alluding to Remy and Minaj’s recent rap battle.  “It can be a competitive sport almost but I think at the end of the day we all need to move forward. I want to hear female rappers everywhere so we need to be clicking up and we need to be supporting whose ever out.”

“Obviously you can’t just say whatever and do whatever without there being repercussions,” she continued.  “There are consequences to actions and we see that. But at the end of the day the most important thing is let everybody say what they want to say just play the damn record.”

Latifah whose been busy making movies did say she’s been toying with the idea of making another hip hop album. In the meantime you’ll have to check her out in Girl Trip in theaters July 21.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
