    Abdul1997 reacted to Nic61974 in Vinyl Destination Tour - April & May   
    Hi everyone! 
    I hope you have all been well and 2016 has started off being a fantastic year for you. We are going to announce all of the spring tour dates tomorrow so I thought I'd touch base with you.  If any of you plan on attending the shows and would like to say hi to Jeff or take a photo with him after the show, please be sure to drop me an email and I'll work it out for you. 
    Aside from this tour, Jeff has been playing in the States A LOT and had a wildly successful SXSW.  He did an interview with Ebro Darden on Beats1 where he talks about never being worried about being replaced by an ipod. Here's the link in case you want to give it a listen: https://itunes.apple.com/us/post/idsa.1cc98f68-ec92-11e5-9609-3cab93fc3d23
    He also remixed Anderson Paak's "Room In Here" which available exclusively on Apple Music. 
    Last month, Jeff flew a bunch of musicians and producers in to start work on a new project. I can't confirm or deny the title of the new project BUT i can tell you we've been using #M3 as the hashtag. :) 
    We have also started working on this year's PLAYLIST Retreat which is super exciting. In case you missed it, this is the short video we made of the retreat we hosted last August. 
    That's pretty much what's been happening in the world of DJ Jazzy Jeff. 
    One last thing ... I know you are all wondering and the answer is YES!  Yes, Jeff & Will will be on a stage again in 2016. We have been working tirelessly to try and get a JJFP show on the books so stay tuned!

    Abdul1997 reacted to JumpinJack AJ in 2PAC CAST THE FRESH PRINCE IN HIS FILM 'ALL THE WAY'   
    This is pretty dope.  In 1996 2Pac was working on a script for a film called All The Way.  He jotted down his dream cast and put him and FP in the leading roles, and even refers to him as "Fresh Prince."  He also lists Jada, Bill Bellamy, MC Hammer, Heavy D, Ice Cube, MC Eiht, Robin Givins, Marky Mark, Marlon Wayens, Chris Tucker, Everlast, Ricky Harris, the group Illegal, Mac Mall, Richie Rich, Arsenio Hall, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Scarface, Yo Yo, Treach, Sticky Fingaz, Freddie Foxx, R. Kelly, K-Ci, Mary J. Blige, Snoop, Vesta, Luke, Pattie LaBelle, Method Man, Rakwon, Shyheim, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield.
    That would pretty much be the dopest cast ever...lol.  I especially like that it really shows who 2Pac respected.  Notice the lack of Deathrow artists.  It's mostly classic emcees and emcees who had mainstream success.  If anyone ever thought there was tension between FP and 2Pac since Jada was one of 2Pac's best friends, I'm pretty sure that's been squashed with this.  It shows that they were cool enough that he believed FP would accept the role.  At the time that he wrote this, Independence Day probably hadn't even been released, which says a lot.
    Here's a page from the exhibit that's currently at The Grammy Museum in LA.  Apparently pages from the script are on display as well.

    Abdul1997 reacted to Ale in 'Concussion'   

    Let's wait and see the movie. I thought he'd be nominated after seeing the trailer for 'Seven Pounds', but after seeing the movie I thought he didn't deserve it because, although his performance was quite good, it looked like he was trying really hard and it didn't feel natural to me, something which did happen in 'The Pursuit Of Happyness'. So let's wait and see. We don't even have a trailer yet But yeah, I know what you mean. We can't help thinking this movie is gonna give Will some awards ;) On the other hand, I like the fact that they chose December 25th as the release date, but it's only 1 week after the release date for the new 'Star Wars' movie, so I don't think that's a good move when it comes to 'Concussion' Box Office.

    Abdul1997 reacted to Abdul1997 in Kelsey Grammer & Martin Lawrence FX Sitcom   
    Another interview with Marty Mar.

    BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. - If you combine Martin Lawrence's fan base and Kelsey Grammer's fan base, Partners could be the biggest show in the history of TV. It's simple math.

    "In the best-case scenario, we would hope for that," Lawrence said with a laugh. "As long as we get enough to hopefully get five years with the people on TV, that would be good.

    "His humour and my humour, if it's smart comedy, if it's understandable comedy, if it resonates with the people, it could be anybody's audience. He has a certain brand of comedy and a certain way that he does comedy. I would say he got the white audience and I got the black audience. But you put those two together ... you know it."

    Partners debuts in Canada Aug. 7 on Global, which is three days after its debut in the US on channel-of-origin FX. Lawrence and Grammer star as Chicago lawyers from different backgrounds who form a partnership after meeting in court on the worst day of their lives.

    Lawrence's Marcus Jackson is a community activist whose good works can't save his own marriage. Grammer's Allen Braddock is a hotshot who nonetheless manages to get himself fired from his father's firm.

    "(Grammer's character) is for the money, he's about getting the money by any means necessary," Lawrence said. "I'm a morally grounded guy, I do pro bono cases, they cook for me and bring me food, things like that.

    "As we mesh our two kinds of comedy together, our characters kind of teach each other. We try to find out what is the right way to be principled and correct, to do the right thing. And ultimately, it's all for our clients."

    Hmmm, that sounds like a pitch from one of those ambulance-chasing lawyer teams that advertises on late-night TV. But since Lawrence's character is the do-gooder in this scenario, we'll take him at his word.

    Partners is working on the same business model that Charlie Sheen's Anger Management had when it debuted in 2012. Specifically, 10 episodes will be made, and if those 10 episodes hit certain ratings goals on FX, it triggers a clause by which 90 more episodes will be made, guaranteeing a total of at least 100.

    "I was involved with Lionsgate, they were interested in doing something with me," Lawrence said. "And then I got a call from Kelsey Grammer's people, and they said he had a nice little deal with Lionsgate and what did I think about hooking up with Kelsey to do a show. I said, 'Wow, that's a little different, we are the kind of odd couple here, that might be worth a try.' And once I met Kelsey, I was like, 'We could really make this work.'

    "(The first scene together) probably was a little bit cold, feeling each other out or whatever. But Kelsey was so good off the top, man. Some people you could see from afar and think they're good, but it's different when you see somebody up close and you couldn't imagine they were that good. I knew he was good, I knew he was funny, but to work with him and see how truly talented he is, I didn't know all that."

    While Grammer is best known for his TV work on Cheers, Frasier and Boss (not to mention being the voice of Sideshow Bob on The Simpsons), Lawrence hasn't been a regular on a TV show since Martin, which aired five seasons from 1992 to 1997. But in between then and now, Lawrence became a big-time bankable movie star, filling the multiplexes with Big Momma's House and its sequels.

    "It's just the right time," said the 49-year-old Lawrence of his return to TV. "I was able to take some time off and spend it with my family. But everyone was still talking about the Martin show. It's still running (in syndication) and my family was like, 'Hey, we'd love to see you back in TV.' So I thought I'd give it a try. I love the response you get from TV. I love the fact that it's free TV for the people. They can tune in and see you for free.

    "I do look at Kelsey and myself and think, 'Yeah, we're bringing people together, this is kind of big.' "
    Like, biggest-show-ever big? Do the math, Martin Lawrence.
    "You know what?" a smiling Lawrence said. "From your mouth to God's ears."

    Abdul1997 got a reaction from Ydfer3jjaj in Eddie Murphy & Boomerang Co-Star Halle Berry in New Movie   
    Eddie Murphy and Halle Berry are coming back together in a new film titled Miles And Me.
    The film also stars Laurence Fishburne and is set to begin pre-production later this year and is supposedly from Paramount Pictures.

    No other word yet on what the film is about or who else is attached.

    This is the first time since Berry and Murphy have been on screen together since 1992′s hit comedy film Boomerang, which was directed by Reggie Hudlin. If you recall , the tabloids stated that Murphy and Berry were supposedly a hot item for a quick moment but things never went anywhere.

    Anyway, since that film, Berry has gone on to make several hit films such as the X-Men franchise films and many other dramatic films. Berry even landed an Academy Award for Best Actress in Monster’s Ball in 2001, while Murphy also continued to do many films, including the Shrek and The Nutty Professor franchises just to name a few. Murphy won an Golden Globe for his portrayal as soul singer James "Thunder" Early. Murphy was even nominated for an Oscar for his role in the film Dreamgirls in 2007, but he eventually lost.
