Okay look, Die Another Day left much to be desired in a Bond movie. I mean it had the debonair Piers Brosnan as 007, token black (kiss my ass colorists) Bond girl hawte Halle Berry and one epically cheesy Ice Palace that turned the first decent half into a laughable kickback to the Roger Moore smear on the series. It left fans with a bad taste in their mouth for James Bond but I remember the buzz about Halle who kicked ass as the sexy Jinx. The beauty went on to star in a movie called Cat Woman which featured a badly animated version of the villainess doing Capoeira in a designer cat suit. This abortion for lack of a better word made Batman nerds very angry. And let’s not forget that she was miscast as the African bombshell Storm in the X-Men trilogy which… [Read more]

Nine years ago (August 25, 2001) the world of Hip Hop / Rhythm and Blues was shaken by the news of Aaliyah Dana Haughton’s plane crashing. The thoughts were on the freakishness of such an event in a modern time since artists dying in plane crashes were associated with the 50’s and 60’s (think Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and The Big Bopper). The news was horrible and sobering as I had just witnessed her performance as Akasha Queen of The Damned and commented how extremely beautiful she was. Like most children of talent wish and dream of becoming lucky and having the world see their light illuminate the sky, Aaliyah was given that honor and slam dunked it with much emphasis. Her rhythmically coordinated dances are legendary and no dancer can do their thing these days without comparison checks being made (right Ciara?) Her voice… [Read more]

Say what you will about Wyclef Jean, his actions in calming the citizens of Port-au-Prince after being denied his candidacy for president of Haiti is worthy of accolades. Many of us were impressed by Wyclef’s bid for the position after knowing his lengthy dedication to being an ambassador for Haiti and spending his own money, time and resources for the betterment of it’s people. If this is new to you readers then I would urge you to do some research into his dedication outside of his career as a multi-talented musician, rapper and founder of The Fugees. Long story short, if there was someone to be a likely candidate as president of Haiti, it would be Wyclef. What exactly happened? After receiving multiple death threats from Haitians opposed to his running for President, Wyclef Jean hid out silently in Port-au-Prince. In support of their beloved… [Read more]

Ciara could easily have her own section on this site for being so excruciatingly hot. This is her video with Ludacris for the song “Ride” and if you can manage 4 minutes and 39 seconds of fire on your screen then go ahead and hit play and watch the princess dance. Now there are some of you who are probably going to see this and say “I don’t see the big deal”, well unless you can submit a video of yourself popping those gym-toned hips to a beat through several unique dance steps then I suggest you sit your hatin’ ass down and find something else to do. For those of you that can appreciate poetry in motion, witness Ride or as I like to call it “sex music”.

There’s something about a Gold Digger, as negative as the term and act of Gold Digging is, there never seems to be a shortage of tricks to pander to the women who own that label. Kanye West made a popular song about them and men are always worried that they may fall victim to them (even when they are broke as hell) yet the girls manage to keep getting paid. With the taboo and exoticism behind the Gold Digger label, we at the Hall felt that a gallery of the beauties who proudly wear the label will help bring your mentals back down to earth, it will show that the Gold Digger is normally a beautiful woman with whom you would wife really quickly just based off looks alone. To start this section off, who would be more suitable than the self-proclaimed “Platinum Digger” herself… [Read more]

Once in a while a fluff television show will become popular and if it resembles anything real it will also lead to a lot of misinformed people believing it to be actuality. Almost daily my friends talk about the match-ups on Spike Tv’s Deadliest Warrior, which is a hit show where three nerds gather around a room full of cool devices and argue over who would beat who. This would be fine if they didn’t go to the extents that they do to prove/disprove inaccurately who would win in a given match-up. For entertainment the show is brilliant, bringing together old nerdy arguments such as Ninja versus Pirate (this hasn’t really happened yet) or Apaches versus Gladiators. The danger in the show is the fluff antics that make the arguments seem legit. To the casual viewer, a Ninja fighting a Spartan and losing makes perfect… [Read more]

There’s been quite a bit of speculation surrounding the circumstances of the Swizz Beatz/Alicia Keys union.  Rumor has it that Alicia is a home wrecker who started off as the other woman in the marriage of Swizz and R&B singer Mashonda.  Since 2008 the couple has been seen together but has always brushed off the speculation as “working” on Alicia’s album.  It was not until earlier this month that the affair was confirmed with a 10K character tweet from Mashonda in response to what she called inconsideration on Alicia’s part. “If you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did”. The public feud between the two started with Alicia’s tweet of “In love, is it better to go with the choice that is smart or the choice that has spark?”  This prompted the lengthy tweet from Mashonda giving Alicia… [Read more]

I like to think that I know a good actor when I see one, and ever since I saw that tear run from the corner of his eye to the wired shut jaw in “Get Rich or Die Trying”, I knew Curtis Jackson (rapper 50 Cent) was one of the big dogs. This has become extremely clear after seeing the dramatic pictures of his physical changes in order to play an oscar-worthy role of in the upcoming movie “Things Fall Apart”. Jackson co-wrote, produces, and stars in the film about a football player who is diagnosed with cancer during his senior year.  Jackson will be acting alongside Ray Liotta and Mario Van Peebles (who also directs the film). How did he do it? A nine week liquid diet and work outs twice a day. Jackson dropped more than 50 pounds just in time for the… [Read more]
