It was an honor to speak to emcee and producer Ace Hashimoto (formerly known as Brandun Deshay). The 27-year old Chicago native has collaborated with many new school rap giants such as Mac Miller, Dom Kennedy, Curren$y, SZA, Vic Mensa, and many more. We discussed his time he spent in Japan, his past relationship with Odd Future, influences including anime and video games and much more. This was an excellent blerd-sesh and perhaps my favorite episode of PALMCAST to date!

FCCFederal regulators yesterday unveiled a plan that would give Internet providers broad powers to determine what websites and online services their customers can see and use. The Washington Post reports this now sets the stage for a crucial vote next month at the FCC that could reshape the entire digital ecosystem. The agency’s Republican chairman, Ajit Pai has made undoing the government’s net neutrality rules one of his top priorities, and Tuesday’s move hands a win to big broadband companies such as AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.

As The Post ominously notes, “Pai is taking aim at regulations that were approved just two years ago under President Barack Obama that sought to make sure all Internet content, whether from big or small companies, would be treated equally by Internet providers.” This crucial decision will be put to a vote at the agency’s Dec. 14 meeting in Washington. It is expected to pass, as the GOP controls three of the commission’s five seats.

In a release, Pai said his proposal would prevent the government from “micromanaging the Internet.” In place of the existing rules, he added, the FCC would “simply require Internet service providers to be transparent about their practices.” The proposal would also shift some enforcement responsibility to the Federal Trade Commission, which can sue companies whose actions do not reflect the commitments or statements they have made to the public.

Not surprisingly, those aforementioned giant Internet providers welcomed the FCC announcement — in a statement, Verizon said, “We’re very encouraged by Chairman Pai’s announcement today that the FCC will move forward next month to restore the successful light-touch regulatory framework for internet services.”

The president of CBS News said veteran anchor Charlie Rose has been fired from the CBS Corp. unit after allegations that he had harassed former female employees at his production company surfaced Monday, a maneuver that raises questions about the near-term future of the network’s A.M. news show, “CBS This Morning.”

“A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose’s employment with CBS News, effective immediately. This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program,” said CBS News President David Rhodes in a memo to staffers issued Tuesday.

“Despite Charlie’s important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace—a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work,” Rhodes said. “We need to be such a place.”

In a detailed article, The Washington Post reported the accounts of eight women who said Rose had harassed them. Some of the women worked as junior-level producers for his PBS program, “Charlie Rose,” or aspired to do so. Some of the accounts are lurid, alleging Rose would travel with some of the women or invite them to work at his house, and then try to lure them to see him while he showered or otherwise approach them in a sexual manner. The accusations make Rose the latest in a series of prominent figures in media, entertainment and politics to be accused of trying to use his role to strike up sexual relationships with women in subordinate positions.

Reaction to the accounts has been swift. CBS, PBS and Bloomberg, which also ran the PBS program and let Rose use studio space, all suspended him. “I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate,” Rose said in a statement. ” I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.”

Janet-and-Joe-jackson-main

Joe Jackson expects his daughter Janet to perform at Super Bowl 51.

“Janet is ready to comeback and I think it will happen,” he told us at BET’s Soul Train Awards, which will air on Jan. 26. “The way I bought her up she was made for comebacks and this is no different.”

Janet last did a Superbowl show in 2001 with Justin Timberlake, which caused controversy when her nipple was exposed at the end of a dance number in an incident that was instantly dubbed “Nipplegate.” Timberlake is making his return to the SuperBowl stage in Minnesota in February and there’s been rampant speculation that Janet, who became a mom in January at the age of 50, will join him.

Cardi B isn’t done making money moves.

The Bronx, New York, rapper just made history by becoming the first woman to chart her first three singles in the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list simultaneously.

For the week of November 18th, “Bodak Yellow” holds the No. 2 spot while “Motorsport” with Migos and Nicki Minaj debuts at No. 5, Billboard reports. Meanwhile, G-Eazy’s “No Limit,” on which Cardi and A$AP Rocky are featured, got a bump up one spot to No. 10.

The music outlet noted that Cardi is also the first artist to have three singles chart in the top 10 simultaneously since Fetty Wap in 2015. She’s also just the sixth woman to score three simultaneous top 10s at any point in her career, following Ashanti, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Beyoncé and Rihanna.

Cardi shared the news and thanked her supporters on Instagram Saturday.

This is just a continuation of the hip-hop artist’s winning streak. In September, she became the first female rapper in 20 years to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with no featured artists for “Bodak Yellow.”
