Happy Monday! Today on The Source Report, our correspondent Zae Diggs (no relation to Taye Diggs), talks about how the whole world lost its mind over the weekend when Nicki Minaj released her long-awaited album, Queen, on Friday.  One song in particular that has everyone talking is called “Barbie Dreams.”  The song talks about all the guys she might want to sleep with in the industry if they could shake one or two of their quirks.

Kanye West also released a controversial song. A new track called “Xtacy” implied that he would  smash all four of his sisters in law. The legendary DJ Clark Kent released the track on Twitter and like the Queen record, caused FANdomonium. 

Someone else who had an exciting weekend was Spike Lee. This weekend, his critically acclaimed film BlacKkKlansman turned in a solid profit for its opening weekend. Based on BlackKkKlansman’s $15 million budget, the Brooklyn director looks to cash in on his investment and then some earning 10.8 million this opening weekend.

Check out the video above and let us know what you think.

Ron Stallworth decided to punctuate the 70s with a spotlighted exclamation point. The statement spoke loudly in 1979— like the drumbeat under Flash’s “Superrappin.” And in true Hip-Hop fashion, this brave and pioneering Black police officer disrupted the status quo of Colorado Springs.

First he did by being the first African-American hired as a police cadet (later undercover officer) in that city, and then by infiltrating the Klu Klux Klan, becoming a member of the notorious hate group. Of course, his membership made many in that organization sick with embarrassment and made a fool of one of its most obnoxious and arrogant leaders, David Duke.

This really happened…

A Black guy during the end of the 70s,  joined the KKK and had his membership certificate signed by the racist Duke himself. And while almost everyone thinks that their life should be made into a movie… this guy’s life really should’ve be made into a movie. Enter Jordon Peele and the one and only Spike Lee.

Peele (Executive Producer) and Lee (Co-Writer and Director) collaborated to bring this story to the big screen as the award winning BlacKkKlansman that is set to debut today. And while elite film festivals like Cannes and all of the trade ‘zines have boasted how dope this film is… we had to see it for ourselves, assess it through our unique cultural lens and see if it faired well against Spike’s classics like Malcolm X or Do The Right Thing.

We were not about to let “those” folks define what was poppin’ for us.

We saw it.

This movie was everything that we could have possibly hoped for and then some.

Let’s start with the cast.

Taking the lead is John David Washington. Morehouse man (no surprise, Spike’s films are riddled with Maroon Tigers). Former NFL Player (that’s a little shocking… who knew). Cinematic Legacy (His mom is Pauletta Washington and his dad Denzel). None of that matters… well it does but he didn’t need any of those things to validate him and or persuade critics to celebrate him in this role. He just was good. Real good.

Washington finessed this role and made us believe the Spikean interpolation of this biopic. Such strong presence on the screen, he made each and every other character in the film look a little less shiny …and let’s face it he was up there with some vets like Corey Hawkins, Topher Grace or Ryan Eggold that should have eclipsed him.

The Source was able to sit down and talk to leads John David (Ron Stallworth) and Laura Harrier (Patrice) to find out what made this film so special. The was light, yet respectful of the honor to rock these roles. Listen to both these millennials embrace the two-fold history of being in a Spike Lee Joint and acting in this period piece.

This week the award winning and highly anticipated film, BlacKkKlansman, hits the big screen and everyone and their mamas are excited to see Spike smash the box office one more ‘gain.

The Source’s red carpet correspondent, Dante Ramos rocked out at the Brooklyn premiere of the movie and was able to get the cast and supporters at their most candid. Darlings like Tiffany Haddish, Bresha Webb came out for first look to see the film that so many are whispering “Oscar” about. Cast members are giddy with excitement to share their work. But the highlight of the carpet is when Ramos gets the real Ron Stallworth to show just how incredibly Hip-Hop he is by busting out his favorite N.W.A. verse, “Straight Out of Compton.”

Check out all that came out to celebrate this new film.

The movie BlacKkKlansman is based on the true story about a Black police officer named Ron Stallworth, who in the late 70s and early 80s, shut down the Colorado Springs chapter of the Klu Klux Klan. This Spike Lee directed and Jordan Peele produced biopic promises to make you laugh inappropriately, marvel at the looping current of history and intensely reflect on the current world around you.

This cinematic team comes together to create movie gold by mining the truest gem of a cast: John David Washington (Ron Stallworth), Corey Hawkins (Stokely Carmichael/ Kwame Ture), Laura Harrier (Patrice), muMs da Schemer, Harry Belafonte, Toper Grace (David Duke), the hilarious Ashlie Atkinson and even Alec Baldwin.

Today on The Source Report, we salute one of the most classic records in the history of Hip-Hop.

Exactly 30 years ago on 8/8/88, N.W.A. dropped Straight Outta Compton, introducing to world what is now known as “gangsta rap’. Without a lot of radio promotion or marketing, this album caused a huge stir around the nation. It even drew attention from the federal government, with the FBI and U.S. Secret Service sending letters to Ruthless about the violent message of “F*ck The Police.” N.W.A.’s popularity with the law increased their fan base and record sales.

This episode also recognizes the how Hip-Hop is dominating the charts. Travis Scott’s standout ASTROWORLD is poised to take Drake out of the top spot on the charts with a strong debut week of over 450,000 units.  But Drake and Travis are not the only rappers killing the game.  Mac Miller’s new album Swimming and YG’s Stay Dangerous  will also make top 5 debuts. Swimming’s first week efforts will clock in between 44,000 and 48,000, while STAY DANGEROUS is slightly ahead in between 52,000 and 57,000 units.Hip-Hop as a whole will occupy the top five spots on the chart.

Travis Scott, Mac Miller, and YG will be joined by Drake’s Scorpion at number 2.

Each week, The Source aims to help you get over that mid-week hump with our brand new, Source Report.   Today we are highlighting Lebron James who opened the “I Promise” School in his hometown of Akron, OH. The 33-year-old superstar received praise from a number of athletes, celebrities and powerful individuals alike, for setting a new standard for giving back. The “I Promise” School is the ultimate academic institution for children and their families. From free tuition to job placement for parents, the school is a center for hope and motivation.   Hope and motivation is in the air. And most reality TV fans are hopeful that the newly minted Jordan Fam (Faith and Stevie J) are motivated to spend the rest of their lives together in wedded bliss and harmony. While the nuptials came swift, unexpectedly and seemingly inexpensively, the honeymoon shows the company dropping that gwop on a $40M luxury yacht. We truly hope that this marriage lasts the test of time and celebrity.   One marriage that we can confidently say has lasted the test of time and celebrity is Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys. Today, the couple celebrates 8 wonderful years and man and wife (or woman and husband). We wish them the very best and can’t wait to celebrate them next year!

Over the weekend R. Kelly took to Instagram Live to preview a 19-minute track, where he addresses sex cult allegations, Aaliyah, being illiterate and, #muteRKelly.

Also over the weekend it appears Tekashi 6ix9ine was robbed and kidnapped after filming a new music video. Luckily Tekashi did escape, and took to Instagram to state he believes it was an inside job. Speaking of Instagram, if you follow Floyd Mayweather or 50 Cent you probably witnessed a brutal exchange between the two.  Man oh man, the drama never stops.

“It always seems impossible, until it’s done!”

This statement could have been made by Diddy or Cardi B. It could have been a lyric cleverly woven into a Drake song or tattooed across 50 Cent’s chest. But none of those examples are the origins of this statement. When Nelson “Madiba” Mandela uttered those words, he had already walked a 27-year bid in prison. He also had already lead a coup to overturn the South African government. He had already used his brilliant legal mind to engage an entire legion of young people to fight for a better life. And though he never rocked a rhyme on the mic, there probably is no more “Hip-Hop” leader than he.

Well who was he?

Madiba was a revolutionary and activist turned political titan. He was the first Black president of South Africa. His philanthropic work has inspired all of Africa, but moreover changed the academic dynamics of Black South Africa.  What makes him so dope is that he was born from a royal family and from a space of privilege. Unlike many, he was afforded an opportunity to be educated and attended University of Fort Hare and the University of Witwatersrand. He became an attorney and could have lived his life lounging in relative comfort.

But he did not.

In 1944, he co-founded Youth League and joined the African National Congress with the mindset to overthrow the then newly minted apartheid system of racial segregation that oppressed his people. He organized, fought and eventually in 1961 was sentenced to life imprisonment for his work to emancipate his people. Despite this, those enemies of justice could not hold him down or back. In 1990, President F. W. de Klerk worked to get him released from his incarceration. Mandela and de Klerk both worked to negotiate an end to apartheid. As a result, Mandela  was able to win the 1994 multiracial election to become President and add political validation to the ANC.

He represented excellence. He personified Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power.”  Mostly, he walked the line as a diplomat’s diplomat. In fact, in South Africa to commemorate this day, President Barack Obama delivered a riveting lecture on his life and how we can use his example to create a better world.

He said, “”I believe in Nelson Mandela’s vision. I believe that a world governed by such principals is possible”. He further said “It can achieve more peace and more cooperation in pursuit of a common good.”

Happy Birthday, President Mandela. We still honor you and will work to continue your legacy.

It was a BET takeover in Los Angeles, Calif last weekend, and The Source was there to document every moment!

The three-day extravaganza, better known as the BET Experience, kicked off Friday (June 22) at at L.A. Live, the City of Angels’ go-to entertainment complex in downtown L.A. The venue hosted various vendors, including a custom sneaker bar, the artists we love and an if-you-weren’t-there-then-you-missed-out celebrity basketball game.

From Ray J to Wale to Lil Rel to Safaree, it was a star-studded movie, and The Source caught it all on tape. We caught an up-close-and-personal take of the pre-awards show concert, which featured performances by Meek Mill, Playboi Carti, A$AP Ferg, Nipsey Hussle and more.

The weekend was lit, but that definition is an understatement.

Relive your favorite BET Awards weekend moments or catch up on any and everything you missed above.
