London Shows For Dave Chappelle June 2019

Following sold out shows at the Royal Albert Hall last year with Jon Stewart, Dave Chappelle returns to the UK this June to perform at London’s Adelphi Theatre and Hackney Empire.

Chappelle’s clever, in-your-face brand of humour has made him one of the most respected entertainers of his generation. In March 2017, Chappelle returned to television via streaming giant Netflix with two highly-anticipated specials, The Art of Spin, and Deep in the Heart of Texas, filmed in Los Angeles, CA and Austin, TX. The critically-acclaimed specials satisfied his fans and introduced a new legion of followers to his sidesplitting, thought-provoking style of political and social commentary.

In 2005, Chappelle walked away from his groundbreaking sketch comedy show, Chappelle’s Showon Comedy Central. During the 8 years that followed, he performed pop-up stand-up dates, made occasional television appearances, and toured extensively throughout the United States, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada, and Australia. From intimate comedy clubs to theatres and arenas, Chappelle’s live performances often sold out within minutes of being announced.

Comedy Central ranks Chappelle as Number 43 of the “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.” Esquire Magazine has called him “the comic genius of America,” and he was featured on the cover of GQ Magazine’s Man of the Year issue in 2015. In April 2017, he graced the cover of The New York Times’ T-Magazine.

Afeni Shakur Davis, Tupac’s mother, dies at 69

(CNN)Afeni Shakur Davis, the mother of one of hip-hop’s most seminal and iconic figures, has died at age 69, the Marin County, California, sheriff’s office said Tuesday.

Though she is best known as Tupac Shakur’s mom, Shakur Davis also was a Black Panther as a young adult and an activist and philanthropist in her later years.
“Sheriff’s Coroners Office will lead investigation to determine exact cause & manner of Afeni Shakur’s death,” the office said in a tweet.
Afeni Shakur Davis in 2003.

Shakur Davis was a “well-loved, well-respected” member of the community, Pittman said.
“Miss Shakur has had an extensive background not only in the community but her involvement with so many things,” he said. “She’s been a leader, a person people followed. All that said about who she’s been and where’s she’s at now, this is a tragic loss for this community.”
The Shakur family, in a statement, said she “embodied strength, resilience, wisdom and love. She was a pioneer for social change and was committed to building a more peaceful world.”

From drugs to arts

In a 2005 interview ahead of the opening of the now-shuttered Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia, Shakur Davis recalled how her life was almost derailed by drugs and how her son got it back on track.
Her drug use made her so oblivious to what was happening in her life that when someone told her in 1990 that her son — then on the precipice of becoming the biggest name in hip-hop — was going to be on “The Arsenio Hall Show,” she thought the person was lying, she said.
In the mid-1980s, she was homeless in New York and “messing around with cocaine,” Shakur Davis said. Despite the drug use, she was still coherent enough to realize that Tupac would become a product of the streets if she didn’t make different choices.
“I was running around with militants, trying to be badder than I was, trying to stay up later than I should,” she said in the 2005 interview.
She decided to enroll Tupac in the 127th Street Ensemble, a Harlem theater group, something she called “the best thing I could’ve done in my insanity.” They later moved to Maryland, where she enrolled him in the Baltimore School for the Arts, and then to a small town outside Sausalito.
It was there that Tupac confronted her about her cocaine use.
“He asked me if I could handle it, and I said yeah because I’d been dipping and dabbing all my life,” she said during the interview. “What pissed him off is that I lied to him.”
‘Pac told the local drug dealers not to sell to her, she said, and he told his mother to get clean or to forget about being involved in his life.

‘Arts can save children’

She got clean in 1991, she said, and when her son was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996, she resisted the urges to delve back into her old bad habits. She instead founded Amaru Entertainment to keep her son’s music alive.
Later, she realized that her life — mistake-ridden as it may have been — might serve as a lesson to others.
“Arts can save children, no matter what’s going on in their homes,” she said. “I wasn’t available to do the right things for my son. If not for the arts, my child would’ve been lost.”
She provided the majority of the money to begin the $4 million first phase of the arts center, while her Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation hosted poetry and theater camps for youngsters in the Atlanta area. The family said she established the foundation to “instill a sense of freedom of expression and education through the arts.”
“I learned that I can’t save the world, but I can help a child at a time,” she said, pointing out that her new life of philanthropy wouldn’t have been possible without the influence of her legendary son. “God created a miracle with his spirit. I’m all right with that.”
And as much as she credited Tupac with inspiring her to help others, the tribulations she endured in raising him weren’t lost on the multiplatinum artist. He regularly invoked her in his music, perhaps never as directly as in his chart-topping song, “Dear Mama.”
In it, he rapped, “And even as a crack fiend, mama, you always was a black queen, mama/I finally understand, for a woman it ain’t easy trying to raise a man/You always was committed, a poor single mother on welfare, tell me how you did it/There’s no way I can pay you back, but the plan is to show you that I understand.”
Shakur Davis is survived by a daughter, Sekyiwa Shakur.

Nipsey Hussle Reportedly Shot 6 Times In Front Of His Store .. 😩😩

His condition is unknown at this point. Eyewitnesses in the area say they heard multiple shots fired.

Even crazier … Nipsey appears to have tweeted right before the shooting, and alluded to “enemies.” He wrote, “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”

THA GREAT

@NipseyHussle

Having strong enemies is a blessing.

Nipsey — who’s from the Crenshaw area of LA — is said to have ties to the Crips. That hasn’t stopped him from working with artists who have rival gang affiliations … he’s made music with both YG and The Game — both of whom have been tied to Bloods.

He’s released multiple mixtapes over the course of his 10-plus year career but just dropped his first studio album last year. It’s called “Victory Lap” … which got him a Grammy nod for Best Rap Album just a month ago. Nipsey lost out to Cardi B at the award show.

Despite being a polished rapper, Nipsey was no stranger to the streets. He got roped into a brawl out in West Hollywood back in December of 2018 … which turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.
