Williams “MNF” Opening Pulled After He Calls President “Hitler”

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

Since 1991 country singer Hank Williams Jr. song was at start of every “Monday Night Football” game but after his unreal statements about President Barack Obama on Fox News.

Williams went on Fox News and compered President Obama to HITLER! I just cannot believe this clown said this on national TV about our President! Totally shocked!

So ESPN pulled his theme song from MNF. I hope for good. Williams should hold a press conference as soon as possible to say he is sorry for making that stupid comment. Will he do it? We will see.

Here is a question readers. Why does racist things continue to happen to President Obama? Time and time again we read about insensitive and racist comments and statements about the President. It is just terrible!!

But President Obama is a cool dude and he just let’s it roll over his back and moves on. Bottom line is the Tea Party and the right and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh etc are doing EVERY THING TO MAKE PRESIDENT OBAMA A ONE TERM PRESIDENT.

This is a fact. So it helps clowns like Hank Williams Jr. make crazy statements comparing President Obama to Hitler! Again I can’t believe he said that!!   Gordon Curvey

New Business By 50 Cent To Help Feed Poor Children

“MUSIC INNER CITY RADIO” podcast. A special broadcast with some of the music by the late 2Pac. This program is 24/7 on-demand. A spinoff of “M.I.C Radio” here in Seattle on Alternative Talk 1150am KKNW every Friday a little after 10pm Seattle time/Click here to listen to this program

ARTICLE FROM atlantapost.com (Full story click here)

I don’t care if 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson is from the East Coast. I am writing about a dude who is not just about grabbing the mic and rapping in city to city and buying big cars and more. 50 is about making money and also giving back.

He is starting a new energy drink called “Street King” and every time someone buys the new drink, it will help a poor kid have a meal in Africa and elsewhere. This is a great move by 50.

Read the article and you will learn more what he has done to give back. To many times we read about rappers like T.I. or Shyne or DMX and The Game getting in trouble.

Might of face The Game is in the news for maybe calling 50 gay in a tweet recently. And that 50 may be gay like a lot of rappers but not admitting it. Just ANOTHER beef started by The Game in his years of problems with 50. When in the hell is it going to stop?

Of course 50 made about 200 milion dollars when he sold his investment in Vitimin Water. And other business ventures has lined the pockets of 50. Plus he makes a lot of cheese making movies in Hollywood.

But this news business he is starting is great on the part of 50. Selling energy drinks and feeding children. The majority media needs to talk more about this. BUT as many of us know the majority media wants to talk negative instead of positive when it comes to hip-hop and rap artists. Sometimes they do good things!   Gordon Curvey

Diggy Simmons Is Making A Name For Himself In Hip-Hop

ARTICLE FROM s2smagazine.com (Full story click here)

We have seen young Diggy Simmons grow up from a little kid to a young man because of watching him on TV for years on “Run’s House”

Of course his father is the legendary Rev. Run of the group Run D.M.C. Rev. Run has done a great job in bringing up his kids. A great job. Some think Rev. Run’s kids are spoiled brats. I do not think that at all.

It seems to me Rev. Run made his kids get a good education in school and has brought up his kids to want to work hard when they get older. Diggy Simmons has grown up and has worked hard to make a name for himself in hip-hop.

Yes for sure doors was opened up for Diggy because of who his daddy is but truth be told young Diggy Simmons has skills. Real talk. He really does.

Here is a question. If you watched “Run’s House” you will know that Diggy Simmons big brother JoJo is also a rapper but we have not heard from JoJo regarding his music. Maybe we will one day. In the meantime, shout out to Diggy Simmons and we will be playing his videos soon on Seattle’s own “Music Inner City TV”  Gordon Curvey

Hannity/Fox Put Common On Blast!!

ARTICLE FROM hollywoodreporter.com (Click here for full story)

Guess you have heard former guest on Seattle’s own “Music Inner City TV” is being blasted for performing at the White House for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

He is being blasted along with the President by Sean Hannity and the right wing for a song he made about a cop killer years ago. But Hannity and the right wing have NOT done their homework on the artist Common.

This brotha has done a tremendous amount of work in the inner city trying to reach young kids about positive things. For instance I recently interviewed Common here in Seattle when he was on tour with MTV going ALL OVER THE COUNTRY going to schools talking to the youth about the importance of a good education.

But Hannity and the right wing knows NOTHING about this nor do they care only care about reaching deep to criticize President Obama about ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING!!!

Common is the last hip-hop artists to be blast on Fox News. You want to know why readers? Because Common was a guest on Fox News in the past and was praised by the host for his POSITIVE LYRICS!! But all of a sudden because he is performing for the President and First Lady at the White House he is a “gangsta rapper” and a terrible dude by Hannity and other right wingers. WHAT A JOKE!!

Bottom line is President Obama ratings have jumped up since the killing of Bin Laden and Sean Hannity and Fox News and Sarah Palin and others on the right wing are fishing trying to put the President on blast because the elections in 2012 and as of right now, no one on the right can beat the President. This is the bottom line.   

Yes we have high gas prices and high unemployment etc but the President and his administation is doing the best they can. Yes I disagree with things the President has done. But that can be said about a lot of Presidents. One thing for sure Hannity and the right wing have reached way low in blasting Common performing at the White House. Way low. Gordon Curvey

Seattle Writer Good Story On How Basketball Brings Races Together

ARTICLE FROM seattletimes.com (Full story click here)

I have give credit where credit is due. Seattle sports writer Steve Kelly wrote a good story in the Seattle Times (click the link to read) about how basketball helped him and how he realizes how basketball brings black faces and white faces together.

And it is true. No other major sport has the personalities basketball has so in my opinion and Kelly’s it brings us more together as a people.

For instance I went to a game right before the NBA season started at Seattle’s Garfield High School put on by Seattle native and Portland guard Brandon Roy. At the game you saw Asians, East Africans, African Americans and whites in the audience having a good time watching the game of basketball.

I am sorry to say, when you go to a major league baseball game at Safeco Field here in town, the only people of color you see are the ushers and the ones on the teams. It is a little better at NFL games but not much.

But if you look at the audience at a NBA game it is a rainbow of colors. Just like it is in America. It is that way at a high school game, college game and of course the NBA.

Kelly’s article was a great article. I just wish Steve Kelly would be bold enough to write a story in the Seattle Times regarding the radio station he has a show on every week. Sports radio KJR which does the COMPLETE OPPISITE of what his article is about.

The station has ZERO diversity. NONE. In sales, producers, on the air and in management. This does not reflect the fields and courts of America. In my opinion, yes basketball knows about the word DIVERSITY. It helps to bring people together. But Steve a sports radio station which you work for, does not know about the work DIVERSITY nor do they care.      Gordon Curvey

It is the Steelers vs. the Packers in the Super Bowl. I wanted the Jets and Green Bay but it was not meant to be. But it will be a good Super Bowl. To read more on the upcoming Super Bowl and more Click here. Story via sports.yahoo.com

Halle Berry Does First Interview In Three Years With Vogue

ARTICLE FROM popcast.com (Full story click here)

Kind of strange that actress Halle Berry is doing her first interview in three years. And also it is strange she is doing it with Vogue Magazine.

I am thinking why Vogue and not Oprah? If am not mistaken, that was her last big interview on former guest on Seattle’s Music Inner City, Oprah’s program.

In my opinion, Berry has been bitten by the Oscar curse because since she won her Oscar, the movies she has acted in have not been anything to write home about.

She is getting paid big dollars for her roles but in my opinion, she needs to really take her time and pick good roles for her.

Also it is also strange why her love life is always in a turmoil. One fella after another fella after another fella.

Is it her or is it the fellas she picks to be in love with. Her relationships just do not last long.

She is one of only a few African American actresses who can land lead roles in Hollywood. Here is a question readers…..why?

I will be writing a story on this topic, the lack of lead roles for African American actresses very soon right here on “Music Inner City News Magazine”    Gordon Curvey

Music Inner City News Magazine Bio: T.I.

BIO FROM wikipedia.com (Full bio click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

(Listen to “Music Inner City Internet Radio”  Classic soul, new and recent music, interviews, and more. Click the “Ustream Live” link above. It is 24/7!)

T.I. has had a very very interesting life in twenty or so years on earth. Jail terms, millions of cd’s sold, acting in movies and more.

No one can deny this cat has talent behind the mic and in front of the camera as a actor. T.I. can act. Unlike other rappers, he has a long career ahead of him as a entertainer. If he can stay out of trouble. The question is, can he?

I think T.I. can do wonders in going into inner city schools and talking to the youth about staying in school and staying away from guns and violence etc. Of course he has done a lot of that since his release from jail for weapons charges. He can be a tremendous role model. And you know what? What I read, he is trying to be just that. A role model kids can look up to. That is great!

Congrats to T.I. and his lady Tiny who recently tied the knot. I am happy for Tiny and T.I. By watching Tiny’s reality program, it seems she is a great lady and a great mom.

Great things are ahead for T.I. in music and in Hollywood. Let’s hope he stays out of trouble. I think he will do it. He has to many kids who are looking up to him as a role model.

Please say a prayer for me as I enter Swedish Hospital here in Seattle (Aug 4th) for lung cancer surgery. For which I am very nervous but I have to have it done.

This is a wake up call for me. I have never spent time in a hospital. I hope this operation will have me back to good health. I have to many things to do. And thanks everyone for your prayers ad concern.      Gordon Curvey/Music Inner City

Possible Reunion Of ALL The Members Of Destiny’s Child?

ARTICLE FROM theybf.com (Full story click here)

Do you think ALL the members of Destiny’s Child will get together for one last time for a new cd or tour of the U.S and elsewhere? Well it could happen .

That means Michelle, Beyonce, Kelly, Farrah and former guest on Seattle’s own “Music Inner City TV” Letoya Luckett.

Man that would be off the hook and  for sure money maker for the group and for Columbia Records and for the music industry as a whole.

I have not heard to much from Farrah. Kelly has put out a few cd’s but truth be told, they did not sell well and Michelle has done well putting out gospel cd’s and Beyonce…………well we all know she has done very very very well in movies, singing etc. She is a triple threat in the entertainment business.

So in reality Beyonce has to lower her ego for the benefit of her child hood friends to be reunited and form Destiny’s Child again.

So let’s see what happens readers and see if Destiny’s Child will get together again. This time with Farrah and Letoya. Stay tuned and we will have all the news right here on “Music Inner City News Magazine”

Mo’Nique’s Brother Admits To Molesting Her On Oprah

ARTICLE FROM oprah.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

This is a very very interesting story I just learned about at former guest on “Music Inner City TV” Oprah’s website.

Regarding the brother of Oscar winner comedian/actress Mo’Nique who admitted to molesting her when she was a young girl. This is a shame readers.

Can you imagine this cat keeping this inside of him for a long long time? And also for Mo’Nique to keep this inside of her for a long long time also. I know this was very very hard on the both of them.

As many of you know, Oprah has said she was also molested when she was younger so I guess Oprah can relate big time to Mo’Nique.

It will be very interesting to see what happens with this story and the relationship between Mon’Nique and her brother.

Shaq O’Neal Wants To Shut Down “Basketball Wife’s” On VH1

ARTICLE FROM nicolebitchie.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I watched the first show of “Basketball Wive’s” on VH1 and was very disappointed. To me it was a program about a bunch of gold diggers who have the nerve to get on national TV and bash their ex husbands.

One so called female was a for real clown dancing at this “How Lo Can You Go” event by Ludacris. She was drunk and acted a for real fool.

Here is the thing that bothers me about this program. These ex wife’s of NBA players or ex NBA players left these females with plenty of cash, so why would they bash there ex’s on this program?

Also I am tired of seeing “motor mouth” sistas on these reality shows. Talking about how “cute” men are and how much cash they have and cars they drive.

Another reality show “Let’s Talk About Pep” is the same thing. Motor mouth sistas talking about how cute this man etc.

Yo readers, how come the fella has to be “Mr. Handsome” or god’s gift” Why not a normal dude that treats the lady like a lady should be treated? He may not be the best looking cat around just a real nice man? Think about it.

But Big Shaq O’Neal is saying enough is enough and wants to shut down production of this program.

Check out MTV with entertainment news, video and more RIGHT HERE! Plus watch HOURS of M.I.C-TV programs and much more right here on “Music Inner City News Magazine”

And why buy from our sponsors! IT IS SAFE AND SECURE!!!

Ochochinco Slams ESPN Host Colin Cowherd On Twitter

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I am happy as hell that NFL player Chad Ochocinco has fired back at ESPN Radio host Colin Cowherd about Colin’s constant blasting of him on his radio show.

Cowherd seems to think he is a Mr. Know It All when it comes to sports and even life. He comes off as a tremendously arrogant fella who speaks out on folks at will on his program and seems to think guys like Chad will not retaliate. Chad has.

People don’t understand Ochocinco. He is a young fella having fun. He likes to use the technology available like computers etc. He uses Ustream.tv and does his Ustream show when he is on the road via his iphone etc.

He is having fun. I rather have Chad around to read about than baseball players who have personalities of a rock outside on the street. That is way you don’t see any baseball players besides Derek Jeter doing commercials on TV. But you see Chad, Barkley, D-Wade, Dwight Howard, Manning and others with personalities.

Colin does not say you don’t read about Chad doing drugs, clubbing at a nightclub at 2am, beating up his wife atc. He is at home on the computer etc having fun. Now during the off-season he is going to be in “Dancing With The Stars”

I am tired of clowns like Cowherd and even this other motor mouth “JT-The Brick” on Fox Sports Radio who also likes to blast Ochocinco at will in negative ways. Calling him negative names over the air. J.T. and Colin are two peas on a pod. Two motor mouth so called talk show hosts who like to talk about African Americans in negative ways all the time over the air.

J.T. was just on the air giving his opinion as to why African Americans kids are not playing baseball. He does not know what the hell he is talking about unless you walk in our shoes!!!

This just shows once again, about sports radio. Their is a MAJOR PROBLEM in AM sports radio in Seattle and the U.S. The problem is a lack of African Americans in sports radio. It is dominated by white men who know NOTHING about the African American culture or lifestyle. Nothing.

In Seattle, sports radio KJR and 710ESPN have a grand total of ZERO African Americans with his or hers own program. THIS IS A PROBLEM WHEN AFRICAN AMERICANS DOMINATE THE MAJOR SPORTS IN THE U.S.

Thank god for Stephen A. Smith and Mike Wilborn and the “Two Live Stews” and a few others in sports radio. We need more. At KJR and 710ESPN here in Seattle their is no African Americans as producers, in sales, in management and of course over the air.

This is why I have started “Sports Inner City Online”. A site that has the African American point of view when it comes to sports.

“Sports Inner City Online” is one of only a few urban sports websites on the Internet. PLEASE spread the word about our site. Please send us a e-mail at gcurvey@yahoo.com and tell us how we can improve the site. It is at www.sportsinnercity.com

Chris Brown Asks For Radio And Fans Support

ARTICLE FROM essence.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Singer Chris Brown is doing something he thought he would never do. And that is to ask for his fans support in buying his new cd and is also asking radio to play his music.

Ever since his problem of beating of singer Rihanna, he has had problems with his career.

It is for sure not like it was before the problems came down on him.

But in reality Brown cannot blame anyone but himself for his problems. He brought them on himself. He should have did what he did to the beautiful Rihanna.

Having said that, the question is this. Is it time for fans to forgive Brown and buy his music? Is it time for radio to start playing his music again? Truth be told I do not even hear any past Chris Brown music on the radio like “Kiss-Kiss-Kiss” and others. Do you?

Brown is doing every thing courts have asked him to do and more. He is even going to schools and community centers to talk to talk to youth etc.

What will it take for radio and fans to support Chris Brown like before the Rihanna incident? It does not help when programs on TV like “The Insider” and “Showbiz Tonight” continue to blast Brown when ever they can.

This story is very very interesting. Let’ see if the negative treatment of Chris Brown will continue. For his sake and career, I hope the negativity stops.

Micheal Jordan New Owner Of The Charlotte Bobcats

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Well former B.E.T owner Bob Johnson finally got tired of owning a basketball team and sold it MJ. The person some people say was the greatest basketball player of all time. I say Magic Johnson though.

Jordan has a very very hard job ahead of him. Will he want to keep Hall of Fame member Larry Brown next season as the head coach? This will be interesting because truth be told the Bobcats have improved this year under Coach Brown.

They have a few pieces in place to have a good team with some added additions. They Have Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson on the team. The question is this how will MJ be as a owner?

Because MJ might have been a great great player but so far as a GM in Washington and with Bobcats in another position, he has not done a good job. Let’s just tell the truth folks. (yours truly Gordon C. with MJ pic to the right)

One thing for sure it is great that MJ is involved in the NBA in anyway because he is a basketball icon. A sports icon. A flat out legend. I know David Stern is happy to have him around too.

Will he be a owner like Mark Cuban of the Mavericks? Who is at EVERY game sitting right behind the bench of his team? Who knows we will see.

Everyone will be watching Jordan to see what he can do to make the Bobcats a team that can make the playoffs in the future and draw some fans to the arena because when you see a Bobcat game on TV, you will notice a whole lot of empty seats.

So let’s see what the REAL KING (not James) can do as the new owner of the Bobcats in Charlotte.
