Screen Shot 2019-05-28 at 5.38.20 PMScrapp Deleon to attend the 3rd Annual Creation of Fashion Event on June 3rd in Dallas

Phaedra Parks is scheduled to be the host and mistress of ceremony at the 3rd Annual Creation of Fashion. Jamila T. Davis will also be a special guest as well as radio host Michael Moultrie. Letitia Scott-Jackson Co-Founder of Keeping Families Connected is elated about the weekend of events scheduled. She and her husband self fund this entire event to raise money for their non-profit organization “Keeping Family Connected.” Purchase tickets here.

This non profit provides luxury uber rides for families of incarcerated that have no transportation to visit their loved ones. Keeping Family Connected was created after the release of once (wrongfully accused) incarcerated Letitia Scott-Jackson; when she had no access to her family especially her kids because no one was able to provide them transportation to see her. This was an awful feeling she never wished anyone else to experience. Once released she and her husband decided to devote their lives to families of the incarcerated to make processing this new temporary way of life a little less painful for those grieving. Keeping Families Connected is definitely an organization that walks the walk and is not just about lip service.Screen Shot 2019-05-28 at 5.31.30 PMPlease join the above mentioned celebrity talent. Scrapp Deleon from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta (and newly released from Federal Prison in Georgia) will actually be a guest speaker at this event to drop gems of knowledge and comforting words of wisdom to the families that may help ease the pain of their situation. Advocate Jamila T Davis who also recently served several years in Federal Prison will also be a guest speaker at the Third Annual Creation of Fashion Show.

Tyler Perry recently spoke with Page Six and the producer’s channel tv found out the following:

Tyler: “I’ve made my last Madea. It made so many people laugh, but turning 50 I don’t want to be her age playing her.”

About funeral fun being fitting for a finale, he says: “Look, nothing’s funnier than stuff that happens at a black funeral. Who’d let Madea plan a nice burial? And with a Beyoncé hat on? If you’re looking for ‘Schindler’s List,’ this ain’t it. I just want to make people laugh.”

We will absolutely miss Madea, but over the years she has taught us so made lessons and dropped so many gems of life into our souls that can be passed down from generation to generation.  March 1st is when the movie will be in theaters nationwide. Please help Madea go out with a bang by showing box office support.

Will Packer and Malcolm D. Lee offer inspiration for blacks in film at 4th annual Influencers Brunch

will packer malcolm leeAccording to the Newsletter of Enchanted PR

(Washington, DC) — The 4th annual Influencers Brunch was an undeniable highlight of the Congressional Black Caucus weekend in Washington, DC. Curated by Terk Entertainment Group partners Tarek “Terk” Stevens and Ronald “Tricky” Montgomery, the program opened with breakout Pop/R&B artist Eli serenading the crowd, then transitioned to an intimate conversation with Hollywood heavyweights Will Packer and Malcolm D. Lee, moderated by Heart & Soul Channel’s personality Cayman Kelly on Sirrius XM radio.

Packer and Lee were raw and candid, sharing insider knowledge about the movie industry while promoting their new film Night School. “We appreciate your support, because every ticket counts when you are up against others,” Packer explained. Lee echoed Packers sentiment and encouraged others to follow their passion especially if it led them to pursue the film industry. Lee suggested hopefuls be prepared to start at the bottom and do the work. “I started at the bottom. I got coffee, bagels, etc. I even messed up sometimes and got yelled at, but it’s ok,” he said. “Sometimes we want the success but aren’t willing to start at the bottom, but in many cases that’s the only way in.”

What began as a casual breakfast meeting between Anthony Anderson, Tarek “Terk” Stevens and Chris Spencer during The BET Honors has now become an exclusive gathering where Capitol Hill, Hollywood and Wall Street converge to celebrate igniters of the cultural power shift, recognize the impact of dynamic partnerships and empower the next generation of social change agents. “It’s always a beautiful room,” says Ronald “Tricky” Montgomery, “you look around and see so many different examples of black excellence from entertainment, to politicians to corporate brand managers, it’s black people supporting, collaborating and celebrating each other.”

Tarek “Terk” Stevens believes the brunch symbolizes the importance of building and sustaining relationships. “Your influence extends beyond your own platform and includes your relationships. The Influencers Brunch represents fertile ground for collaborative innovation that inspires global action,” he says. The relationships in this room go back for decades and others are just beginning, but this event represents how invaluable those connections are even beyond business.”

In addition to hearing insightful commentary from Packer and Lee, guests dined on a gourmet style brunch, enjoyed the beautiful rooftop view overlooking the Capitol and Union Station and received exclusive gift bags filled with Shea Moisture products.

Celebrity and notable guests included; author/speaker Michael Eric Dyson, former Essence editor-in-chief Susan L. Taylor, actor Lamman Rucker, comedian/radio morning show host Joe Clair, pop culture expert Jawn Murray, model/actress/morning radio host Claudia Jordan, ‘Love In The City’ star and International Motivational speaker Bershan Shaw, Josh J1 Raiford Program Director of 93.9 WKYS Radio One, Maryland Delegate Jay Walker and Angie M. Gates who serves as the Director of the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment.

The 4th annual Influencers Brunch was sponsored by Shea Moisture, Barclays, Night School (Universal Pictures), CVS Health, Howard Stirk Holdings, Blackmaled Productions, Will Packer Media, Sunshine Matter, LLC, Tito’s Vodka, Jack Daniel’s and 202Creates as part of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s month long initiatirve and the Office of Cable, Television, Film, Music and Entertainment.

Wanda Smith and Frank Ski Discuss the Katt Williams interview – see both videos

When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong- Did Wanda Smith’s husband really pull a gun on Katt Williams at the Food Depot?

According to the V103 website the story was told in regards to the conversation between Wanda Smith and Kat Williams when he visited V-103 radio station tagging along with his good friend Red Grant who was scheduled to do the radio interview. Wanda expressed how she was excited about Kat Williams in the beginning. However, we  at the Producers Channel don’t agree with Wanda Smith’s opinion that Kat Williams had an agenda. Kat Williams (according to the interview we viewed was being his typical Kat Williams self.

It’s funny how Wanda Smith kept saying she didn’t want to be disrespectful or be in a bad place but it was Wanda who started the jabs telling Kat Williams that he needed to get his hair done. That was very disrespectful of her as a radio host. Also she called him “Miss Katt” and who does that? If Wanda Smith being the comedian that she is has done her homework on Kat Williams she would know this was all normal comedic behavior for him. No one congratulated Kat Williams on his Emmy nomination instead it was thrown up in his face about his jail stint. It got personal on Wanda’s end first according to the video.

Wanda constantly trashes people (guests of the show) and just the day before Smith was shaming Dr Gregory Lunceford (husband of Quad Webb-Lunceford) from Married to Medicine. Maybe this interview will make Wanda Smith take a good look at herself.  How did Smith not see how the interview went left when she turned the wheel left first. Wow! She didn’t want to go back and forth she says but she went back and forth. Did Smith really talk about Jesus Christ in comparison to herself? Wow, Wanda really?? Please see the video below of the interview and you will see the shade. Is Smith honestly saying did I say something about you when she said “you are wearing those old a** clothes? Calling a man Miss. That’s not disrespectful? The host should never disrespect a guest under any circumstances. Did Charlemagne the God disrespect Birdman on the Breakfast Club when he said “put some respect on my name?” No. Yes as a caller said when she called in Wanda is claiming victim. She perpetuated the negativity.

After last week’s viral interview of Katt Williams on V-103’s Frank and Wanda In The Morning, Wanda Smith and Frank Ski publicly talked about everything that’s happened since. Watch as Frank and Wanda air out their feelings over the controversial Emmy-winning comedian’s visit, from how it all started, to the wild weekend of social media commentary, viral videos and tweets that followed.

BBK Phat Drops “Here We Go” Remix f’ the Baddest Chick TRINA

trina bbk phat 1

The city you grew up in, race, and life’s experiences can all shape a person’s talent. This is especially true of Rap Artist/Actor BBK Phat. Born and Raised on the Westbank of New Orleans, BBK Phat made a conscious decision to relocate his family to the city of Houston. With the desire to be a rap artist since the age of 13 his ambition, talent and resources have allowed BBK Phat the opportunity to open for “Lil Wayne,Future, Sean Kingston, Erika Badu, Mack Maine, Mysitkal, Tyga, Bun B, Yo gotti, lil Boosie, Juvenile, Young Jeezy, 2 chain, Rkelly, Money Bag Yo. Finally he got a chance to scratch  Miami’s baddest chick rap artist TRINA off his bucket list of artist to perform with as they recently completed the ‘Slow Grind and Wind’ Remix of “Here We Go”.

The Produer’s Channel caught up with the Slow Wine & Grind artist to inquire how his drive and determination has kept his fans motivated to see and hear more from him. The better question was what did it take to snag Miami Love & Hip Hop cast member & rapper TRINAfor his latest remix?  Check out the interview:

Who wrote and produced your Remix “Here We Go” and what was the concept behind it?

I wrote it myself and Kirk Thuglas was the producer. I was going through a lot in my life at the time. The popular music producer Kirk said he had a song for me to write to to give me a different flavor and when I first heard the song I loved it. It took me a few days to write something to get it right but when I finally heard it played back to me I literally fell to my knees. It sounded better than I imagined it would.

What made you want to put Trina on the remix?

It actually was a collaborative effort between myself and my label AMS Music Entertainment. We wanted the song to be able to be placed in the hip hop category and we felt that TRINA would be the best artist to give it that hip hop appeal.

You mentioned shooting the video took 6 days; did you and Trina shoot together or separately? 

Awwww man, we actually shot one full day together. It was an Epic experience. Trina is a very real individual, humble and a true professional. We got a chance to discuss a lot of different things & she absolutely loved the song. From the moment she pulled up to the house with the pool where we shot the video it was just all love. First words out of her mouth were “about time.” Her vibes were genuine. Everything was organic and we just had  a good time.

What advise would you give other artist trying to establish their brand? 

Get your paperwork in order.

What makes your lable AMS South Music Entertainment different that others?

AMS is different from other labels because they are not looking for anything from the artist. They are in a financial situation where their business is already moving forward. Their business is in order, everything is in line; they are organized and trustworthy. I don’t feel like either party is using each other for self gain. They have the connections and the resources to help their artist achieve their goals. It’s more than business because the level of respect we have for each other is actual genuine. On both ends we want to see each other grow bigger. It’s a mutual respect. I’ve been dealing with the CEOAlvin Maysfor about two years and I know he is genuinely concerned about my career reaching the highest level and I wish the same for the label as well.

When did you change your stage name from Annunaki Phat (and what does that name mean)?

My best friend got killed and that just blew my world. When I got over it the best I could it’s when I changed my name to BBK Phat. It’s not really a meaning. They were basically angels God sent down to teach.

Wow, thanks for sharing all this information so that we can know you just a little bit better than we did before. We know there will be much more to share going forward. BBK Phat’s “Slow Grind & WInd” Remix of “Here We Go” is available for download on itunes and all music platforms. An announcement will be made within the next two weeks for the video release. Please follow @BBKPHAT on all social media and @amsmusicsouth.

According to multiple media outlets several Umpires are considering refusing to officiate matches involving Serena Williams over her behaviour at the US Open final. Video of Serena Williams demanding an apology after the umpire accused her of cheating went viral spiraling into garnering the attention of multiple news outlets.

The outspoken Wendy Williams weighed in on this stating she too also felt this was more of a feminist call. Please weigh in on your thoughts. Do you feel like the umpires teaming up to bascially boycott is overboard?

The Times U.K. quoted the following:

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) have backed Williams’ claims of sexism after she was given a game penalty for her behaviour during her straight-sets defeat by Naomi Osaka, of Japan, on Saturday.

This has further riled some umpires, who were already unhappy with the haphazard organisation of this year’s US Open.

Sound off in the comments if you feel the Umpires need to get over it and the one should apologize for insinuating Serena Williams was cheating.
