Desiigner Interview Magazine

When Desiigner dropped “Panda” and it spread across the country, the comparisons to Future were non-stop and sometimes brutal. It didn’t stop him from being named part of the XXL Freshman class though!

In an interview with Interview magazine, Desiigner spoke about how he is not at all like Future and more.

“My style, my funk, my performance, my charisma. The way I deliver my songs. That’s what makes me different,” said Desiigner. “I stay humble. The second you see me on stage doing my thing, you know I’m not like the rest. I stay crazy.”

Whether it was all orchestrated by a PR firm or the real deal, rapper/entrepreneur Rick Ross has signed a homeless rapper by the name of Isa Muhammad, to Maybach Music Group after he approached Ross in Venice Beach, CA. Read the full story HERE!

The Olympics

TOP 4 LATINA HOPEFULS TO FOLLOW IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES

The Olympics is a celebration of competition, passion and nationalism that unites nations like no other organized event in the world. For 17 days we will closely watch athletes demonstrate hard work and commitment by overcoming their toughest obstacles in order to earn one of the highest honors in their sport. These athletes include many Latinas that have already become an inspiration to both men and women around the world; from 16 year old Puerto Rican-American gymnast Laurie Hernandez to Colombian BMX cyclist Mariana Pajón, many Latinas are sure to make a mark in sports history this summer.

You can follow every minute of their journeys through Comcast’s Xfinity. The company has created the ultimate Olympics experience on the X1 platform – Front Row to Rio – where you can easily search, discover and access more than 6,000 hours of live, on demand, and online streaming content, and do so with just the sound of your voice in the language of your choice using the X1 voice remote. As part of the experience, Xfinity will provide a personalized dashboard that gives you the ability to favorite nations, teams and athletes and check out “Must See Moments” when the competition gets fierce. With Xfinity, you won’t have to miss a second of the top Latinas competing in this year’s Games.

Here’s a list of the top 4 Latina athletes to follow during the Olympic Games:

Laurie Hernandez: Team U.S.A’s Overnight Sensation (U.S.A, Gymnastics) –Laurie Hernandez, the first U.S.-born Hispanic and youngest member of the “Fierce Five” U.S. gymnastics team, was unknown by casual fans until her breakout performance six months ago in the national championships. This star’s electrifying performances on the floor and the highest beam score during the U.S. trials earned her a spot on the team that is favored to win. To make sure you catch each moment of this up-and-coming star’s performances, Xfinity will provide “Must See Moments” notifications in real-time for marquee Olympic events like gymnastics that you won’t want to miss.

The Olympics

Mariana Pajón: BMX Champ Prepares to Rule Again in Rio (Colombia, BMX) – Mariana Pajón is arguably the best female BMX cyclist in the world and earned Colombia its second gold medal in history during the 2012 Olympic games in London. Pajón showed the world that women have what it takes to compete in an extreme sport that is dominated by men. She’s a superstar in her home country and part of a new generation of athletes that have put Colombia as a legitimate contender in a variety of sports. You can keep up with her and the rest of her Olympic team by adding Colombia on your ‘Favorites’ section.

Mariana Pajon

Idalys Ortiz: Unstoppable Cuban Judoka (Cuba, Judo) – After beginning her judo training at 10 years old, Idalys Ortiz earned a spot on the Cuban national team at the ripe age of 15. Now at 26, and with two world championships under her belt since winning the gold in London 2012, Ortiz will be no easy competition in the women’s heavyweight division in Rio. You can follow her journey through the Olympics by saying her name into the X1 Voice Remote or by simply saying the word “judo.”

Idalys Ortiz

Las Leonas: Fierce Legends in the Making (Argentina, Field Hockey) –This Argentinian field hockey team has recently won its seventh world championship trophy, the most by any national team and have won over 20 official titles since the year 2000 when their breakthrough summer earned them the nickname “Las Leonas.” Their nickname came from having a reputation for being relentless even when a match appears to be lost so you can be sure they won’t stop until they’ve reached gold. Catch all the highlights of this determined field hockey team’s matches on the X1 Sports app and the NBC Sports app wherever you go. With these apps you’ll be able to catch live results and scores, real-time stats and highlights of each of their nail-biting games.

Las Leonas

Whether you’re inspired by Laurie’s personality-filled dance routines or Idalys’ unstoppable takedown, Comcast’s X1 is your front row to catching every second of these action-packed competitions from day one.

Keep up with your favorite Latina athletes this summer with Xfinity and enjoy every moment of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

WatchMike.com and Broad Green Pictures invite you to an advance screening of THE INFILTRATOR

Based on a true story, Federal agent Robert “Bob” Mazur (Bryan Cranston) goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent Emir Abreu (John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé Kathy Ertz (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant, Roberto Alcaino (Benjamin Bratt). Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world.

On June 22 I posted a press release for the upcoming UK release of WORRY DOLLS.

Movie News: ‘Worry Dolls’ Get UK Release Date!

Well guess what?! I got the chance to watch it…

WORRY DOLLS – TRAILER from Jinga Films on Vimeo.

What did I think of WORRY DOLLS…

I liked it.

I thought it had a great start. (lol) It jumps right into action! In the first 10 minutes of the movie – SERIOUS blood and brains. Texas Chainsaw Massacre style. (lol) Loved it. I think that’s one of the main things I liked about the movie – – the special effects. They definitely didn’t hold back – – for a movie that didn’t seem to have a huge budget – I thought they got the job done!

I enjoyed the serial killer.

I enjoyed the dolls.

I dug it all.

I give WORRY DOLLS… 3 1/2 out of 5 popcorns.

WatchMike.com, AmazonStduios and IFC Films invite you to an advance screening of WIENER DOG in Houston.

Welcome to the doghouse: the latest hilariously biting comedy from Todd Solondz is a twisted Lassie for misanthropes. It follows the wayward adventures of a dachshund who passes from oddball owner to oddball owner—including the world’s worst mom, a beleaguered screenwriter, and the grownup incarnation of Welcome to the Dollhouse’s Dawn Wiener—whose radically dysfunctional lives are all impacted by the pooch. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, and Zosia Mamet, Wiener-Dog is a tragically funny, wondrously warped look at the absurdity of life (and death) from one of contemporary cinema’s most fearless and unique voices. Co-presented with Amazon Studios.

After a year stint in Dallas, Crisco Kidd and the Crisco Kidd Block Party show are headed to one of the nation’s Hip-Hop heavyweights, KKFR Power 98.3fm and 101.9fm for the East Valley in Phoenix, Arizona.

With the fourth flip of Hot’s format in 13 months and the addition of their new Program Director, Crisco’s departure came at the perfect time, as ratings have plummeted since.

Over the last 60 days, Crisco and his team have been touring the country finding the best situation for himself, his team and everyone involved and when Power 98.3 became a real possibility, there was no need to look further.

“I’ve been a fan of Power 98.3, Mikey Fuentes and the staff for years. The talent assembled and culture created, in today’s radio environment, is refreshing and rare! I truly believe this is a great fit for the Crisco Kidd Block Party brand and I can’t wait to join them and contribute in making Power the best station in the Country! – Crisco

The Crisco Kidd Block Party’s first show will air LIVE from the Phoenix’s Fouth of July Celebration and weeknights 7p- Midnight, Monday through Friday. He joins an all-star team including MC Magic and Dee Garcia in mornings, That Girl Fel middays, Tino Cochino Radio afternoons and some of the best mixers and support talent in the industry. You can also stream the weekend show Saturdays PST: 3-5p on #SKEENET via Dash Radio, 6-8p on PowerHits281.com, 9-11p on GeckoBrosRadio and 10p-12a on MYDJsRadio.
