Will Smith And Queen Latifah To Produce Hip-Hop ‘Romeo & Juliet’ For Netflix

May 16, 2019 – 6:24 pm by VIBE Staff

Will Smith and Queen Latifah are joining forces to produce a film that blends hip-hop and Shakespeare. The pair are reportedly gearing up to produce an upcoming hip-hop musical of Romeo & Juliet for Netflix, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will be a contemporary musical on Shakspeare’s romantic tragedy that is set in New York City. The updated rendition will portray a young waitress from Brooklyn who falls in love with an aspiring musician from a wealthy family.

Solvan “Slick” Naim will reportedly direct from a script he wrote with Dave Broome. Latifah will produce the musical through her Flavor Unit Entertainment banner. Smith will act as an executive producer under his Overbrook Entertainment, with James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett.

Hip-hop and Shakespeare might sound like they don’t miss, but you probably forgot that Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 Romeo + Juliet. The film, which starred a young Leonardo DiCaprio, also took a more urban, hip-hop approach.

It’s unclear when the upcoming musical will hit Netflix at this time.

Dave Chappelle Explains Why He Didn’t Take Part In ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ Documentary

Dave Chappelle isn’t mincing his words when it comes to some of the biggest scandals this year. The lauded comedian took aim at R. Kelly, Michael Jackson accusers and more during his latest Netflix stand-up special Sticks and Stones.

Released on Monday (Aug 26), Chappelle addressed why he didn’t take part in the critically acclaimed Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly. The comedian was critical of the R&B singer at the time of his child pornography case in the mid-aughts. Several skits on the Chappelle’s Show took aim at Kelly in comedic ways like the infamous “Piss On You” skit as well as the “Celebrity Jury Selection” skit.

During Sticks and Stones, Chappelle attempted to differentiate Kelly from Jackson. “R. Kelly is different,” said Chappelle. “If I’m a betting man, I’m probably putting my money on he did that sh*t.” He then revealed that he didn’t participate in the dream hampton-directed documentary because “I don’t know this ni**a at all. I don’t know anything.”

Surviving R. Kelly featured those close to the singer and others who also didn’t know Kelly personally like John Legend and journalists Jamilah Lemieux, Toure and Nelson George.

Many have picked apart Chappelle’s past skits with some defending his style of comedy to others slamming the comedian for overlooking the victims. After Surviving R. Kelly aired, co-creator of Chappelle’s Show Neal Brennan revealed Kelly wanted to fight the comedian over the skits.

“R. Kelly wanted to fight Dave,” said Brennan to the Breakfast Club. “He literally…his goons stepped to Dave in Chicago and Dave’s goons intervened. The goons negotiated.”

See some of Chappelle’s past commentary on Kelly below.

Joe Responds To Fan Love For Original ‘Power’ Theme Song

There’s just something about Joe’s velvet and soulful voice that catches the ear and the heart. It’s why a good number of his songs like “I Wanna Know” and “All the Things (Your Man Won’t Do)” are still in heavy R&B rotation. It’s also why many fans were outraged when they didn’t hear his voice welcome them to the season 6 premiere of Power last week.

“Big Rich Town” by 50 Cent and Joe has been the theme song of the hit show since its creation in 2014 until the entertainer released the remix this month with Trey Songz and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. While there’s nothing wrong with Songz’s vocals, fans are comfortable with Joe’s version of the song, which caused a hilarious social media uproar over the weekend.

On Wednesday (Aug 28), Joe finally responded to all of the memes and fan love for his version on social media. “All in favor say I! FANS HAVE A LOT OF #Power,” he said. “Y’all are amazing! Will hit y’all once I’m settled in Africa. @50cent – ALL LOVE. We made a classic.”

50 Cent joked about changing the theme song back to Joe’s version after the uproar. “These motherf**kers talking about Trey Songz, all haven’t bought a Joe CD in years and yall wanna talk about Trey Songz,” he joked. “Trey did that as a favor to me. I’m a have to put it back the way it was.”

Which version do you like better? Take a listen to both and enjoy the jokes below.

Ummm, who told them to remix the theme song? Let this be a one time thing. Change that shit back by next week #Power #PowerTV

‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ Set To Return For Season Two

After hitting the small screen in early August, HBO’s A Black Lady Sketch Show will return to the airwaves for a second season, Shadow & Act reports. The comedy program was created by Robin Thede and helmed Issa Rae as an executive producer.

In a statement, Amy Gravitt, the network’s programming executive vice president, said the crew remains ready to get started on the next season. “It’s been thrilling to see the audience embrace the characters that Robin, Ashley, Gabrielle and Quinta have brought to life,” Gravitt said. “We had a blast making this groundbreaking sketch show with Robin, Dime and all of the writers and producers, and I can’t wait to see what next season holds.”

#ABlackLadySketchShow has been renewed for a second season.

Starring Ashley Nicole Black, Quinta Brunson, Gabrielle Dennis, and Thede as recurring cast members, black actresses display their comedic chops in various sketches. For Brunson, she hopes this show will open up doors for fellow women that want to break into and stay within the comedy sphere. “My hope is that even though it’s on HBO, younger women are watching who are somewhere thinking, ‘I don’t know if I can do comedy. I don’t know if I fit in any of the boxes.’ We’d like to make it so there is no box anymore,” she said in an interview with Nylon.
