Alicia Keys is on my list for positive role models in Hollywood. Although I must admit I am not a bing fan of her music, I appreciate all the philanthropy she contributes to world, and for people of color. Ms. Keys will be featured in the November issue of Ebony.
MR. UNTOUCHABLE is a film directed by Marc Levin. It is produced in association with Damon Dash Enterprises and Blowback Productions. I usually don’t do films, but this one looks pretty good. After watching a documentary on American Ganster, this idea of the black mafia is intriquing. This movie will have some hard shoes to follow, considering the movie American Ganster will be released this year, starring Denzel Washington. It will definitely give us something to talk about. The rise and fall of urban legends, and the key word being the fall. To learn more about this movie watch the trailer below or checkout my post on Nicky Barnes, the man behind the movie.

The true-life story of Harlem’s notorious Nicky Barnes, a junkie turned multimillionaire drug-lord, MR. UNTOUCHABLE takes its audience deep inside the heroin industry of the 1970s. The most powerful black drug kingpin in New York City history, Barnes came from humble beginnings to make himself and his comrades rich beyond their wildest dreams, ultimately reaching national infamy in 1977 when the New York Times put him on the front cover of their magazine with the headline “Mr. Untouchable.”
Soon after, it all came crumbling down, and Barnes found himself serving a life sentence without parole. Feeling Betrayed by his wife and friends while sitting behind bars, Barnes wanted payback, and cooperated with law enforcement by naming names in exchange his freedom under witness protection. With the first hand testimony from “the black Godfather” himself, this documentary tells an epic story of business, excess, greed and revenge.

Only one of these women are claiming to be pregnant, the other one is just gaining a lot of weight in the belly, and wearing maternity like clothing. We all know you are pregnant JLo, the gig is up, so please just confirm the rumors so the paparazzi can leave you alone. I don’t understand why someone would hide such a blessing from God, but maybe that’s just my opinion. Anyway, they both look beautiful and wear pregnancy well.
