Katt Williams Sprung From Jail, Releases Video Statement

by admin ·

Comedian Katt Williams was released today on bail after serving three days in an L.A. jail after he was detained on a weapons charge at Los Angeles International Airport.

Ironically, the jail stay temporarily put a dent in his promotional tour for The Pimp Chronicles, Part 1 DVD, but now serves as great publicity. He took his release as the perfect opportunity to tape an official video statement.

Many know Katt as “Money Mike” in Ice Cube’s “Friday After Next”, or from MTV’s “Wild N’ Out” or BET’s “Comic View”.

Dude’s DVD includes special guests such as Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon and Anthony Anderson. Check out a clip here and visit our store to buy the DVD.

by Ife Oshun ·

RIP Gerald LevertThey say death comes in threes, and we’re seeing it now.

Yesterday we reported the passing of news legend Ed Bradley, now today, R&B powerhouse Gerald Levert has tragically passed away today due to fatal heart attack. He had turned 40 this summer.

More…

Gerald and his father Eddie (lead singer from the legendary O’Jays) had just returned from touring South Africa and were reportedly beginning work on a follow up to their critically acclaimed duet set Father And Son.

And as far as the third death, it’s been confirmed that Oscar-winning acting legend Jack Palance passed away today as well. The LA Times has a great obit on this remarkable man, one of the last of the true Method actors and a hero of mine.

RIP Levert and Palance.
