#TBT: LUCILLE MEETS THE NOT-SO-FAMOUS PRODUCER KIDD COLE ON “CATFISH” (FULL EPISODE)

With another season of “Catfish”, the television show where people seek to meet the person that they’re engaged in an internet relationship with in person, behind us, we thought that we would go back to one of the craziest episodes in the show’s entire run! In this episode, Lucille contacts Nev and Max after she suspects that she’s been duped by a guy named Jerez, who told her that he was a producer named Kidd Cole that worked for Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. Is he really a big shot producer, or just a con man?! We picked con man for $100, but you can click the television, watch the entire episode, and decide for yourself!

SIDENOTE: After the show aired, another fun fact about Kidd Cole was made public: he is (legitimately!) the stepson of singer and songwriter in real life, Lil Mo, who’s currently a member of the cast “R&B Divas: LA”!

DON CHEADLE BEGINS PRODUCTION ON MILES DAVIS BIOPIC “MILES AHEAD” WHILE STILL RAISING MONEY!

One of the biggest complaints that we hear from African American moviegoers is that there is a need for more diversity in the genre. If you’re one of the people that walks around with that complaint, or you’re a lover biopics, then here’s a chance for you to help a different type of movie make it to the silver screen! We knew that Academy Award nominee Don Cheadle just began production on the film “Miles Ahead”, about the life of Jazz music icon Miles Davis in Cincinnati yesterday. What we didn’t know was, at the time of this posting, Cheadle was roughly $50,000 short of his goal of $325,000 on the crowd funding site Indiegogo with just over two days left on his campaign! Click the television to see Cheadle, along with Davis’ sons, talk about the project, then click here to see the list of incentives and donate:
