[MOVIE REVIEW] MADEA FAMILY FUNERAL

Tyler Perry has yet done it again in the last and farewell film featuring Madea “Madea Family Funeral” Everyone loves the character that Perry has made since his debut movie “Dairy of a Mad Black Woman” Madea had no filter and will definitely tell it like it is no matter what.  She is like the mother you never had…except for the violence and foul mouth, but who doesn’t love a dose of laughter for your soul?!

“Madea Family Funeral” is definitely filled with jokes and laughter for days.  Perry has added his other characters from “Madea Boo” movie such as Hattie and Aunt Bam.  Of course everyone knows Joe, Madea’s brother who she constantly jokes on.  The plot of the story isn’t really all that difficult as it lies around family secrets.  Doesn’t that sound familiar? Well in another one of Perry’s movies “Why Did I Get Married,” it revolved around drama and secrets as well and the family finds a way to fix everything.    In this particular movie, the movie was suppose to be about the anniversary of the parents, but when Perry, Uncle Joe, Hattie and Aunt Bam discovers a dark secret and everything goes south in a freak accident.  Even though Perry reportedly stated that this is the last movie with Madea in it, I believe she will probably come back.  Perry has captured every problem and solution with this movie with great actors and actresses to take on their roles.  Although this wasn’t Perry’s best movie compared to other ones he has directed and wrote, what kept this one in the top three for box office ratings were the jokes!  The plot needed a little bit more work since it’s not really a good one and it has been used before in some of his other films.  Perry could definitely do a much better job with the plot.  What made the movie special were the characters as well.  Without Joe, Heathrow (new character) Hattie and Aunt Bam, the movie would have drowned underneath other movies that recently came out.  

I still recommend people to go see the movie because it is Perry’s last Madea movie and because he always creates and adds good characters that can pull their own weight when it comes to acting.

Count it All Up: Mississippi Indie Artist Counts all of His Blessings in New Single ‘I Needa Bag’

13.JPG

Kelo ‘Countitup’ is an independent artist from Mississippi who has a passion for the music world.  He started his music career after losing loved ones to gun violence and cancer.  Kelo got bit by the music bug by the age of ten where he began creating music.  It wasn’t before long that him and his brother invested in a studio  where he created his first three series underground mix tape.  His new single ‘I Needa Bag’ is based off of struggles and his rise to success. 

TRGB MEDIA: I WAS READING YOUR BIO AND SAW THAT YOU STARTED YOUR MUSIC CAREER AFTER LOSING LOVED ONES TO GUN VIOLENCE AND CANCER.

KELO: When I was six, my uncle got murdered by his fiancé.  It’s crazy because every time I see them they are smiling and in love.  You don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. Me and my little brother used to play on this teddy bear that my grandma got us for Christmas.  It was a hip hop teddy bear and when you squeeze it, it records up to 30 seconds.  We would go back in forth playing rapping not thinking what was going to come out behind all of it.

TRGB MEDIA: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THIS MUSIC INDUSTRY?

KELO: I have been recording music professionally for twelve years.  But when it comes down to major platforms, this is my first year.  I’m a newbie when it comes down to the world-wide.

TRGB MEDIA: WITH YOUR NEW SINGLE, ‘I NEEDA BAG,’ WILL THAT BE APART OF AN EP OR ALBUM?

KELO: I just can’t talk too much about what I’m going to put on the EP because I haven’t really set a title for it yet.  I want to go hard and give them all new music; like when I drop my EP, I don’t want nothing old on it.

TRGB MEDIA: DO YOU THINK THE MUSIC IN TODAY’S GENERATION IS GETTING BETTER OR WORSE AS FAR AS LYRICS, SOUNDS AND BEATS?

KELO: I like the new vibe, but I’m stuck on old school.  Some old school just depends on the artist.  I can listen to 2-PAC all day and Snoop Dogg.  The wave wasn’t the trend back then. I even listen to blues and gospel; I’m all over the place.

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR MUSIC AND OTHERS?

KELO: When you get through listening to my music, it’s all positive vibes.  Majority of my music is motivation.

TRGB MEDIA: AS FAR AS DEFINING MUSIC, WHAT DOES MUSIC MEAN TO YOU?

KELO: Music means everything.  Music helped me through a lot of stuff.  I don’t know how I got through a lot of stuff without music. It is like air, you got to have it!

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND ‘I NEEDA BAG’?

KELO: Man the song speaks for itself.  When the music started getting professional and real things started going on, and real opportunities started opening up, like a lot of financial problems starts hitting.  That’s definitely my motivation.  I started perfecting my craft and pushing my brand.  I sold three tracks back to back less than two weeks.

New Music OTW 🤑🤑🤑#INeedaBag OUT NOW❗❗❗#ONALLMAJORPLATFORMS

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU HAVE FACED SO FAR?

KELO: Number one, instrumental.  You don’t want to know what it costs to get the instrumental rights, putting the right studio to go to and making sure you got a good engineer; you need a good engineer and whoever you got promoting your music, make sure they are legit because there are a lot of scams going around.  You don’t want to loose money as an independent artist.

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR 2019?

KELO: I expect to do at least two features with a celebrity; somebody in the industry.  I plan to have my own tour going on, my EP dropping at the end of the year, that’s going to go crazy, I’m going to have a celebrity on that and I expect to go overseas by the end of the year.

TRGB MEDIA: ARE YOU PLANNING ON DOING ANY EVENTS WHEN YOUR PROJECT DROPS IN MISSISSIPPI?

KELO: I plan on doing a tour, but I don’t have a date yet.  Also I will be doing a release party real soon.

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT’S NEXT FOR KELO?

KELO: First I’m dropping my video, ‘I Needa Bag,’ I got this new single called ‘Shot’  It has a little thug title of the song, but that’s not the concept. The concept of the song is you miss all the shots you don’t take.

‘All Eyez on Me’ Actor and Music Artist Went from Disney to the Big Screen’

stefon4u

From Disney to Diddy, Stefon Dominick Washington is one up-and coming artist
to look out for. His energetic and expressive personality keeps you smiling, while
his intelligence keeps you engaged.
Born in Washington DC into a musically inclined family of performers, dancers,
and musicians; music was something that came as second nature to Artist &
Actor Stefon Washington. Always looking up at great performers like Ginuwine,
Bobby Brown, Puff Daddy, Usher, Pharrell and of course Michael Jackson,
Stefon became more than he would ever imagine: singer, songwriter, producer,
actor, and all around performer.
His bright personality threw him into the acting world rapidly when Disney caught
wind of him and signed him to the “Disney Channel Rocks Show”. He also
worked with Disney as host of the “Mickey’s Not So Scary Street Jam”, and
“Mickey’s Very Mery Christmas Party”.
In  2016, Stefon was on set of the Tupac biopic film ;All Eyez
On Me as an extra and ended up leaving with the legendary role of Puff
Daddy which opened the door for him to also play Diddy in Oxygen
‘Snapped’
Stefon is also on a TV show executive produced by Kodak Black, “City of War”.
Currently in Atlanta pursuing film and music full-time, Stefon has been taken
under the wing of many power-heads in the entertainment industry, while forming
a lane of his own. He has embarked on multiple musical projects, the latest being
his anticipated album BAE, which features the musical talents of R&B group
Pretty Ricky, rapper and reality star Yung Joc, and rapper Shya Lamour.
An amazing songwriter, producer, and actor, with a Nostalgic New Jack Swing
sound that draws everyone’s ear instantly, the talented performer is charismatic
with an undeniable personality that captures all ages and demographics.
Between His Debut EP Krack The Internet debuting #38 on ITunes top R&B
Albums independently, the movie, the undeniable sound he posses and his
addictive charismatic charm. it will become impossible not to hear about
Stefon4u.
Get ready world because the era of Stefon4u has arrived!

TRGB MEDIA: TELL US HOW YOU STARTED OUT WITH DISNEY

STEFON4U: Disney they do auditions once a year, a real one–unless you have an agent in LA.  They do a big audition once a year and it’s always at a different place.  They don’t even give you a real head start, they just let you know three days before.  Most of the Disney auditions are personality-based.  Auditions already starts when you first walk in.  I’m pretty goofy most of the time so I was just being a goof-ball.  I didn’t know how to act before Disney–so that’s how basically I got in the door.

TRGB MEDIA: HOW DID YOUR OPPORTUNITY WITH BEING IN THE MOVIE ‘ALL EYEZ ON ME’ COME ABOUT?

STEFON4U: That was the biggest blessing in the sky for me.  Getting that Puffy role took me out of Disney completely.  Getting that role was an accident because I originally was suppose to be an extra.  I showed up with my boy , he was going to be in a Death Row east scene.  I have real curly hair and I was just making fun of whoever was going to play Diddy.  I started doing Diddy voices, then they called me over, I thought I was in trouble or something.  They asked me if I had any experience acting and I told them kinda.  Next thing I knew, I was standing beside the other guy that was suppose to play Diddy.  They were looking for the old Puffy from back in the day instead of the Diddy now, so I guess I resembled the old Puffy.

TRGB MEDIA: AFTER ‘ALL EYEZ ON ME,’ DID YOU HAVE MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO DO FILM?

STEFON4U: Yes, I ended up joining a television series called ‘City of War’ where Kodak Black is the executive producer.  I guess he is trying to get his Tyler Perry on LOL.  I also been jumping into a lot of videos as well. I’ve been in the City Girls videos and others. I was in a short film series called ‘Love You like That,’ I played an abusive boyfriend that had a very secret life, then his girl finds out and I get shot in that one. Also I’m writing a television show actually working with my brother Lil’Zane with that one.  It’s kind of like a spin off from my favorite movie ‘How to be a Playa’ We’re kind of taking back 25 years later.  It’s definitely a funny script called “Hard to be a Playa.’

TRGB MEDIA: NOW THAT YOU HAVE GOTTEN YOUR BIG BREAK STARTING WITH DISNEY AND YOUR ROLE AS DIDDY IN ‘ALL EYEZ ON ME,’ WRITING YOUR OWN TV SCRIPT AND WORKING WITH KODAK BLACK IN ‘CITY OF WAR,’ TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR MUSIC BACKGROUND

STEFON4U: I kind of been doing that since I was a kid.  But it really didn’t really hit until I was in Florida and I met this guy named Static Major. I started hanging out with him just picking up traits to how to write songs.  Also hanging out with Pretty Ricky, that’s how I learned how to do my own stuff. I also co-wrote some of their record they did in Miami because I know their sound.  So I decided to work on my own project to see how it would do and it’s doing really good right now.

TRGB MEDIA: TELL US ABOUT YOUR ALBUM ‘BAE’

STEFON4U: I put ‘Bae’ out as an EP first.  It was doing really well but I had other songs that I did for the album that I didn’t put out.  So after two months I made a deluxe edition.  I added some features that wasn’t on the last one, that’s how Yung Joc got on.

91KieKyamHL._SS500_

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT WAS THE THEME/INSPIRATION OF YOUR ALBUM?

STEFON4U: It all started out with the EP. It was about a relationship I was going through; I kind of just told it from front to back.  From the good times until the time that we fell apart.  I was kind of upset and wrote more attacking-level lyrics; that was my moment of how I felt.  I had her number still saved to my phone with a blank and the word ‘BAE’ so I just dropped her name and called it ‘Bae’ I started the album being mad and sad then at the end all good.

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?

STEFON4U: Besides getting these videos out, I think the next move for me is getting out ‘The Lavish Savage,’ I’ve had some records I’ve tested in clubs that has been doing really well.
