Orange Is The New Black will be releasing its seventh season in 2019 and it will be its last. Deadline reports the highly popular series will conclude the stories of those we have grown to love from behind bars.

“After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison,” said series creator Jenji Kohan. “I will miss all the badass ladies of Litchfield and the incredible crew we’ve worked with. My heart is orange but fade to black.”

“During production of Season 1, everyone involved with Orange Is The New Black felt like we knew a special secret we couldn’t wait to share with the world. Since then, we have laughed, cried, raged, and roared with the women of Litchfield, and every moment spent with them felt like borrowed time — too good to last forever,” said Vice President of Original Content for Netflix Cindy Holland.

“Orange” season 7 will premiere next summer and over its run has started Taylor Schilling, Laverne Cox, Kate Mulgrew and many more. During its run, the show has won three Emmy awards, while racking up nominations at the Golden Globes, Writers Guild of America, Producers Guild of America and more.

Wednesday evening NYC’s top tastemakers and influencers came out for a private screening of InnerCity Films new star-studded romantic comedy LOVE JACKED at Ipic Theaters in Manhattan NYC.

Guests were ushered into the sensationally decorated Tuck Room to dine on crispy tuna rolls, short rib sliders and assorted pizzas while sipping on ‘The Fiance’ the signature cocktail of the night.

Hustle in Brooklyn is a new reality series on BET which follows the social and professional lives of inspiring music influencers from New York, including Alicia Gooding, Azia Toussaint, Ron “Baggy Large” Walker, Danielle Rosias, Darnell King, Eva, Ivy Riviera, Jesse Brown, and Santos Garcia.

BET Networks announced the show will be centered around “young and sexy millennials” as they “balance in their professional hustle and personal lives,” according to bet.com.

The show aired immediately after the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, but Two Bees TV caught up with the cast ahead of the show.

Cast members Baggy Large, Ivy, and Azia were asked how growing up in Brooklyn shaped them to be the hustlers that they are today. “It definitely humbled me.” Ivy answered. “It reminds me that you should never forget where you’re from.”

When rising rapper, Azia, was asked how has her Flatbush/Crown Heights shaped her to be the woman she is today she swiftly responded, “I learned how to hustle. I learned how to get things done from start to finish, completed. I learned how to juggle through obstacles. I learned how to get in trouble. I learned how to do some things I wasn’t supposed to learn how to do. But I also learned to get out and follow my dreams and never give up.

Did you watch the Hustle in Brooklyn premiere on Tuesday, October 16th?

Art icon Shepard Fairey is responsible for many people’s obsession with the medium, specifically when it comes to his renowned OBEY Giant brand. Now, the man who created one of the most recognized logos in contemporary art is now bringing it to the tech community, creating a new app that offers both a Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality experience to show off his latest exhibition.

We got a chance to speak with the legendary creative last night (rapping all the words to Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story” just seconds before our talk, might we add!) at the launch party for his “DAMAGED” app — officially operating as a pop-up experience on 136 Bowery in NYC beginning today (Oct 17) until Sunday (Oct. 21) — where he spoke in detail on how everything came together to bring it all to life. Read it in his words below, and see more photos from last night’s event in partnership with VRt Ventures, ABSTRKT NYC and Juxtapoz Magazine that featured a killer DJ set by Stretch Armstrong, libations courtesy of 1800 Tequila, good eats from the good folks at Sweet Chick and a room full of Downtown tastemakers that were all there for the love of Shep.



“The guys from the VRt Ventures came to the “DAMAGED” show [in Los Angeles] and they were so impressed with it that they said, ‘Shepard, we’ve been developing this technology. We did one project with MOCA — the Kerry James Marshall show — and we think we can actually do something even richer in terms of the environment you’ve created.’ [“Mastry”] was at a traditional white wall gallery, and what you have here is this unique hybrid of an industrial space with installations that makes it unique and tactile.”

— Shepard Fairey, on how “DAMAGED” came to fruition



“The VR headsets are something that a lot of people don’t have, so I wanted to see more of what they had done. They came back by saying they could also do AR for phones and tablets, so that’s what made me think, ‘Okay, this could be amazing.’ I saw a demo of what they were capable of, and I was like, ‘Oh shit, this is on!’ It really is like walking into the space, especially with a headset, but even just being on a phone or iPad you get a sense of all the components and dynamics of the space. On top of that, my voiceover is there to give users a walkthrough so I was excited for all of those possibilities. It all aligns with my philosophy of making art as accessible as possible to people. I want as many people as possible to be engaged by art and not feel intimidated by it.”

— Shepard Fairey, on making the VR/AR experience accessible to art lovers from all walks of life



“Tech gadgetry is such a non-intimidating entry point for a lot of people that might not even want to go to an art show because it sounds too “pinky out,” “wine & cheese” or just pretentious. I love the idea of not only being able to give my existing audience the opportunity to see a great virtual version of the show who didn’t see it in-person, but I can also potentially reach a new audience.”

— Shepard Fairey, on using tech to make art less intimidating for traditional street art consumers



“I think that a lot of artists are figuring out how to use new technology to help them create physical art pieces — kind of like a hybrid of new, non-traditional tech with traditional art output. On the other side, you’ve got people going the other way where they’re taking a painting they did and figuring out how to animate it in some way or do other things. I think that technology is just another way for people to realize their visions, connect with people and really make them excited.”

— Shepard Fairey, on how artists can mend the two mediums to create something next level and unique



“If you like film, photography and paintings, you can now blur the lines of all those worlds with the new tech of today. I love the idea of the orthodoxy saying, ‘Nah, you’ve got to stay in the painting lane or the film lane,’ and I’m like ‘Nah! Let’s rip all these barriers down!’ I’m down with that — the way technology can help facilitate that change is really exciting. It also means there’s a lot of new creators and amateur content that can be considered white noise, so it’s the job of the people who really want to stand out have to push that much harder to be original. I do like that [technology] pushes people as well.”

— Shepard Fairey, on how technology is both advancing the art world and making it more competitive as well


You can experience the “DAMAGED” app for yourself by downloading it for $4.99 USD over in the iOS App Store and Google Play store for Android, and on Oculus, Samsung Gear and Steam in VR. See pics of the app in-action below:

Last night the 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards went down and had performances from Cardi B, T.I., Lil Baby and more, with winners including DJ Khaled, The Carters, XXXTentacion and more. The biggest honor of the night was handed to Lil Wayne as this year’s “I Am Hip Hop” recipient.

The award was presented by Bun B and DJ Khaled and Wayne were joined on stage by his mother and daughter. He provided an interesting story regarding a man named Uncle Bob who saved his life after a suicide attempt.

“There’s a man in New Orleans, his name is Uncle Bob. He came into an apartment one day. He bust in the door. Guns drawn—he saw nobody. He saw legs on the floor. It was my legs. He saw blood everywhere. Bunch of police hopped over me. He refused to do so. I never knew, I talked to him the other day, I never knew EMS was on the scene. He said EMS tried twice and they told him, ‘There’s nothing.’ He refused to let that die. He told his somebody, ‘Come drive this car. Forget a ambulance.’ He brought me to the hospital himself. He refused to wait, he kicked in the doors. He said, ‘You get whatever you gotta do and you make sure this child make it.’ Not only that, that day, Uncle Bob was a homicide detective. He was off on detail. He just heard the call and came. Not only did he refuse to sit, not only he give me to the doctors and leave, he refused to leave, he stayed and made sure that I made it.”

Uncle Bob now has two amputated legs and when Wayne asks what can he do for him, Bob only replies with wanting a job, not accepting any handouts. You can hear the passion of the story directly from Weezy F. Baby below.

Word online is you can randomly spot Andre 3000 around New York City but beyond that, you will be able to see him on the movie screen as he will be part of the cash for High Life.

High Life is a sci-fi film that will place the Outkast emcee alongside Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth and more. The film is about a crew of inmates who are sent out into a black hole on a mission to see if its energy can be used.

For those who are in France, you can see the film on November 7, for all of those in the United States you will have to hold out until 2019. The film premiered last month at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Eminem, who was the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, and he made it a show worthwhile. The Detroit rapper performed his single, “Venom” from the Empire State Building.

Look at the performance, which incorporates an appearance from Guillermo Rodriguez, below.

Not long ago, Eminem dropped off the music video for the track to coincide with the arrival of the Ruben Fleischer-coordinated Marvel film, which stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, and Tom Hardy.

“Venom” shows up as the last song on the Slim Shady’s surprise album, Kamikaze. The venture appeared at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and moved a noteworthy 434,000 equivalent units in its debut week. Kamikaze, which features Joyner Lucas, Royce da 5’9″, and Jessie Reyez, dropped back in late August.

Variety reports that Warners and Warner Animation Group (WAG) are in arrangements with Shaft director, Tim Story, to helm the new Tom and Jerry live-action/animated hybrid.

Warners has been cranking up the animated content since the release of The Lego Movie, which was released at the same time as the launch of the Warner Animation Group in 2013. Allison Abbate was tapped to manage the division and executives, including Jesse Ehrman and president of the production, Courtenay Valenti, have made a major push to get classic titles like the Hanna-Barbera properties off the ground.

Tom and Jerry is expected to be the first live-action hybrid to shoot in 2019, and insiders say timing helped when it came to getting the Ride Along director, who has experience in animation. Story recently finished production on New Line’s Shaft reboot and was talking to WB execs about what he was interested in doing next. When the classic cartoon property was brought up, Story immediately mentioned his admiration for the characters and how he’d love tackling that property.

The plan for the film is to shoot in the real world with animated versions of the familiar cat and mouse duo. Sources also say that since Tom and Jerry didn’t speak and relied on physical comedy to draw laughs, this version will stick to that style and not cast actors to voice the duo. That decision should also help add to the international appeal of the film.

Saturday Night Live writers and cast members had time this week. Not only did they get Kanye West out of here for his insane rant in front of President Trump, but they also double downed and gave a funny account of what Bill Cosby is going through in prison.

Kenan Thompson took on the role of Bill Cosby who is having an in prison identity crisis and is not able to separate his own persona from the famed The Cosby Show father Cliff Huxtable. In the skit, Cosby receives a new cellmate who will take over the top bank.

In the clip, Cosby is lecturing his new mate, while seemingly enjoying his time in prison and hiding a hoagie that he is calling Denise.

Check out the full scene below and let us know what you think.

Iron Fist has been cancelled by Netflix. It’s the first of the streaming giant’s Marvel shows to get the chop, only a few weeks after Season 2 premiered on the service.

The news of Iron Fist‘s cancellation was reported by Deadline, which was given a joint statement by Netflix and Marvel Television. “Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix,” the statement said. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew, and showrunners. We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.”

Iron Fist was one of four initial Marvel shows that were produced by Netflix. But while DaredevilJessica Jones, and Luke Cage were well received by critics and fans, the first season of Iron Fist, which was released in March 2017, was met with mostly negative reviews. A new showrunner was brought in for Season 2, and most reviews agreed that it was an improvement over the first season. However, it has not been enough to save the show.

Don’t be suprised if Iron Fist eventually gets resurrected on the upcoming  Disney streaming service down the line.

Kevin Gates started his Luca Brasi 3 tour last week in Austin, TX in which he has recruited special guests Yung Bleu, Tokyo Jetz, and OG Boobie Black to join him on tour as his opening acts. Last night the tour stopped in Gates hometown, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and he added even more special guests to the roster. Gates brought out his 5-year old daughter, Islah Gates, and his 3-year old son, Khaza Gates.

Islah stole the show as she performed almost identically to her father from hand gestures to dance moves. It’s very obvious that she literally mirrors her father’s actions and she is definitely a star in the making. Check out the video below.

The Luca Brasi 3 tour will continue today in Atlanta.
