Denzel Washington Still Supports The Wiley College Debate Team With $1 Million Pledge

big ralph | July 31, 2021

In 2007, Denzel Washington starred in the film The Great Debaters as he portrayed Melvin B. Tolson, the renowned debate team coach of Wiley College. The biographical film depicted the 10-year streak that Wiley College earned under Tolson's direction as well as his strides in integrating previously-segregated collegiate debates.
Along with the release of the film, Washington made a donation to the institution through his Denzel Washington Family Fund with an initial $1 million, paying out $100,000 every year in order to help relaunch and revitalize the debate team that was dismantled after Tolson left in 1947. In 2018, they renewed that same commitment.

big ralph | July 31, 2021

Despite reportedly turning down a historic contract from the Packers, last week, Aaron Rodgers is finally back in Green Bay after reaching a contract agreement that will at least keep him in place through 2021. After practicing with the team, Saturday, Rodgers says he's currently “100%” all in.”
“It's the best feeling,” Rodgers said. “It was a little strange, I think, Day 1 just because I was gone for the entire offseason and contemplated my own future and the possibility of playing somewhere else as well. But when I'm back here, I'm 100 percent all in.”

Stacy Revere / Getty Images Rodgers' return to Green Bay was from far from a guarantee. Earlier this year, he opted not to participate in OTAs or training camp, reportedly in the hopes that he would be traded.
“You know me, you know what I'm all about,” he continued. “I love my teammates. I love competing. I do love practice. I love to go out and give it to the young corner when I can, get after these guy..

Travis Thompson Shares “BLVD BOY” Album

big ralph | July 31, 2021

Seattle-bred hyphenate Travis Thompson has returned with his third studio album, BLVD BOY. The new effort finds the underground mainstay sparring with the formidable likes of Juicy J, Westside BOOGIE, G-Eazy, KYLE, and Kota The Friend.
The 14-song outing follows up on 2019's Reckless Endangerment and makes a case for Thompson continued expansion as a favortie among ctalogs.
“I know every artist says “'his album is a collection from my old albums,' but I swear to God each song is a leveled-up version of the shit we’ve been doing- but in a whole new way,” Thompson told Flaunt ahead of the release this summer. “What we’ve always done has been super fan-driven and cool for us- but I feel like now we not only have the best version of that now, but new versions of my music that has legs now to really be something crazier than ever before. We’re making songs that slap at parties, in the car, at night alone, wherever you play them. And I’m just more grown-up. I feel like for a l..

Tory Lanez Says “Black Kings” Are Under Attack Following Rolling Loud Appearance

big ralph | July 31, 2021

Following a controversial appearance at Rolling Loud in Miami, earlier this week, Tory Lanez says that “Black kings” are under attack and warned his fans not to join in on it.
“Don’t let all of our black kings get extinct before you release it was you who helped,” he wrote on Twitter, early Saturday. “There is def an attack on the BLACK MAN’S LEGACY . Don’t be apart of it.”

Rich Fury / Getty ImagesLanez's tweet comes days after he was brought on stage by DaBaby during his Rolling Loud set. The performance was controversial for a number of reasons– most notably a homophobic rant from DaBaby, which he subsequently made worse after the fact, but also because Megan The Stallion had performed just prior to DaBaby's set.
Megan accused Lanez of shooting her, last summer, and recently started beefing with DaBaby after he collaborated with Lanez on the single, “SKAT.”

Kyle Lowry Sweepstakes Gets New Frontrunner

big ralph | July 31, 2021

After winning a title with the Toronto Raptors back in 2019, Kyle Lowry finally got the credit he deserves as one of the best point guards in the entire NBA. Due to the fact that Lowry plays in Canada, he simply hasn't received the same shine as his peers. Despite this, he has risen above the crowd and has solidified himself as a player that will most likely have his jersey retired in Toronto. In fact, he'll probably even get a statue, all things considered.
Despite this, Lowry is now a free agent and he is looking to make a splash outside of Toronto. There are various teams who want Lowry, including the New Orleans Pelicans, Miami Heat, and the Dallas Mavericks. The Lakers wanted Lowry too although now that they have Westbrook, Lowry is no longer in the cards.

Rich Schultz/Getty ImagesAccording to Mavericks reporter Grant Afseth, the Miami Heat are now the frontrunner to sign Lowry. The Raptors star wants upwards of $30m million per year and the Heat have the money to make ..

Emma Stone Reportedly Considering Suing Disney After Scarlett Johansson’s Lawsuit

big ralph | July 31, 2021

Some actors and actresses negotiate their deals so that they get bonuses when the films do well. Big Marvels films typically have deals in place like this. Recently, Scarlett Johansson sued Disney for releasing Black Widow on Disney+ and in theaters at the same time. The actress is suing for lost money she could have made if the streaming release was pushed back not to coincide with the theater release.
To maximize these receipts, and thereby protect her financial interests, Ms. Johansson extracted a promise from Marvel that the release of the picture would be a 'theatrical release,'” the suit reportedly states. “As Ms. Johansson, Disney, Marvel, and most everyone else in Hollywood knows, a 'theatrical release' is a release that is exclusive to movie theatres. Disney was well aware of this promise, but nonetheless directed Marvel to violate its pledge and instead release the picture on the Disney+ streaming service the very same day it was released in movie theatre..
