Terrence Lemont Faison better known as King Moe is the next thing smoking out of the Tar Heel State. The Wayne County, NC native moved out to sunny Los Angeles to pursue his dreams of becoming a hip-hop star and hasn’t looked back. His debut project O.I.L. (Obstacles in Life) released in 2016. Fast forward to the present, the 24 year-old emcee has dropped his latest single titled “Fresher Than You” which tells the story of how he went from hood to Hollywood all from rhyming. “Everyone frowned upon me for being homeless, seeping in a car, while chasing my dream to me making it out of that situation. It’s produced by Mellow Productionz and can be streamed here.

PALM expects nothing but big things to come for King Moe. He is the head of his own label TBC (The Billionaire Cirkuit), built behind the promise of love and loyalty. “You don’t have to be rich in wealth, you an be rich in health and spirit.” After serving in the army for two and a half years,  Moe packed up from his stationing in Kentucky and left for California with his girlfriend. Prior to this move, his military duties led him to Africa to assist with the Ebola outbreak.

​King Moe is gearing up to release TWHT (The West Hell Theory), which is his memoir on what he’s been through to make it this far. “You can go through hell to make it to heaven. Back in North Carolina there’s a place called West Haven that’s so crazy we call it west hell!” This project will reflect the struggle to make it out of where he came from and on to bigger and brighter things.

black-panther-soundtrackAs record-breaking numbers put Marvel’s “Black Panther” at the top of the box office, the film’s Kendrick Lamar-produced soundtrack has followed suit, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The 14-track “Black Panther: The Album,” which dropped Feb. 9, collected 93,000 streaming equivalent album units in its first week. It moved another 52,000 units in traditional album sales. The album is the second soundtrack in 2018 to debut at No. 1 after “The Greatest Showman” did so in January.

In January, “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler announced Kendrick would team up with label executive Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith to produce and curate an album for the movie. The result was a hip-hop-focused soundtrack, teeming with celebrity features.

The first single, “All the Stars” with K. Dot and SZA, sits at 31 on the charts. The Weeknd also appears on the album with Kendrick in “Pray for Me,” which debuted in the top 5 Hot Hip-Hop/R&B Songs chart. Khalid, James Blake and Anderson .Paak are also featured on the soundtrack.

The film itself grossed $192 million over the weekend including Thursday night early showings, making it the fifth-highest opening for any film. It was an international success as well, earning $370.5 million in the global debut.

 The idea that Black-themed movies cannot be blockbusters is officially shattered.

Disney-Marvel’s Black Panther raked in an estimated $400 million worldwide debut, a huge victory for Marvel Studios. It also clearly shows that movies that have Black leads and Afrocentric notions are unable to sell worldwide.

The movie pulled in an estimated $192 million domestically in the three days, $169 million and the numbers are expected to rise dramatically due to the President’s Day holiday Monday.

This is the biggest debut of any movies in the month of February, March and April, according to Buzzfeed. The Black Panther also marks the biggest domestic opening weekend ever for a movie directed by a black director.

Meruelo Media VP of Programming Jimmy Steal announces several high profile on-air jock adjustments at Hip Hop KPWR (Power 106) and Throwback 93.5 KDAY/Los Angeles — the action begins with KDAY midday personality Cece (left), who crosses the hall to Power 106 and sets her alarm four hours earlier to join #TheCruzShow with J Cruz from 5-10am. Cece remarked, “J Cruz and I worked together at [KVEGHot 97.5/Las Vegas before I joined KDAY — he’s the guy who first hired me in radio! We’ve remained friends and I love working with him every morning!”
At the same time it was announced that Krystal Bee (center) will transition off of #TheCruzShow and into her own solo midday show on Power 106. “I love working at Power 106 and I’m excited about the opportunity to host my own show every day from 10am to 3pm!” said Ms. Bee, who can also be seen on MTV’s Amazingness with Rob Dyrdek.
Hang on… we’re not done yet — taking over Cece’s former midday slot on KDAY is Bryhana (right), who most recently did overnights across the street on iHeartMedia Urban KRRL (Real 92.3). Bryhana said, “I can’t thank Jimmy Steal and [Meruelo Media COO] Otto Padron enough for inviting me to join their amazing radio family. I took a chance and moved to Los Angeles to pursue my radio career, and I am truly humbled and thrilled for this opportunity!” Steal said, “We are very excited about Cece, Krystal Bee and Bryhana in their new roles. I received countless airchecks for these positions and they are all very deserving.”

NBA star LeBron James had a surprising reaction to a scathing critique from Fox News host Laura Ingraham where she told him to “shut up and dribble” instead of offering his comments about President Trump.

“I would not shut up and dribble because I mean too much to my two boys here,” James told reporters, “their best friend right here, my daughter that’s at home, and my wife, and my family, and all these other kids who look up to me for inspiration, and try to find a way out.”

“The best thing she did is gonna help me,” he added, “is create more awareness, so, I appreciate her for even giving me even more awareness. For me to sit up here, in the greatest weekend of the NBA All-Star weekend and I get to sit up here and talk about social injustice, equality, and why a woman on a certain network decided to tell me to shut up and dribble.”

“So, thank you, whatever her name is,” he concluded, “I don’t even know her name, but I appreciate it.”

“Tiago says no one knows, and that’s perfect,” he added, laughing.

Ingraham was criticized by many for her derisive comments, while some opined that her critique was at least partly animated by racism against the star basketball player.

“It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball,” she said in the commentary on her show.

On Friday she released a statement denying the charges of racism, saying there was “no racial intent in my remarks,” and characterized the attacks on her as “an attempt to immunize entertainment and sports elites from scrutiny and criticism.”

Trust me, she’s a racist!
