By @questlove via @RepostWhiz app: Of all the "inside industry" stuff I've been privy to learn about NOTHING has tortured my soul more than knowing one of the GREATEST recorded moments in gospel history was just gonna sit on the shelf and collect dust. Many people have told me rumors about it since before I had a deal. @NelsonGeorge & @JohnLegend both told me they seen it w their own eyes. Long story short in 1972 #AhmetEurtegun commissioned #SydneyPollack to document #ArethaFranklin's historic New Temple Missionary Baptist Church return to her gospel roots. The 5 mins I saw of the clip back in 2011 had me JAW DROPPED even #TheRollingStones came to the hood and sat like deacons w the elders fresh in their muddy Main St. glory KNOWING this was history in the making: Aretha singing gospel. The 6 times I've been in presence of the queen I didn't bother w niceties like "can I take a photo" or "when will we play together on the show!?" even before I redo introductions I plead much to her chagrin "please sign off on this film so the world can truly know you are the greatest" I thought it fell on deaf ears. I was wrong. I'm glad I'm wrong. This is EASILY Oscar documentary material. This suffering can stop for its almost about to come in theaters: thank you Alan Elliot!!!! #AmazingGrace!!! (Clip from @candytman Mathieu Bitton) (#RepostWhiz app) #AGonIGSoapbox: My Father explained the reasoning/delay of the movie was as a result of Aretha always being FIERCELY protective of her family's legacy. You see Aretha did this film for her father's extremely close friend, the notorious Rev. James Cleveland. Cleveland is the one who is chiefly responsible of making Gospel music extremely lucrative by organizing the sounds coming from African American churches. With all his great musical acumen he was a very sinister "Little Boy B**** Bandit". People very close to him have tried to sweep this fact under the rug even in his death as to not muddy his place in history. One of the biggest blockers of that negative press has been arguably the greatest singer of all time, Aretha. See when you dip into Cleveland's background, you're gonna have to dip into others as well...

ae_franklin : Well I hope u do for this movie the same think u doing with nwa so we can know the real. This really sounds even more interesting of a story because it's no surprise that nigga shut was happening behind the scenes of "Niggas Wit Attitudes." But Aretha clearly has a more polished image.
fllw.trin : Have you discussed the Richard Pryor movie ?
damika901 : Soooooo, I reckon they would have to discuss the right reverend and his penchant for little girls and alleged mob ties, right?

#AGonIGSoapbox: Who killed N.W.A.? Greed? Jealousy? Envy? An old feeble white man with no knowledge of Rap music that was only beholden to the group's boss? Or just general ignorance to the business? NO to all. The man responsible for the breakup but actually empowered two of the three most well known members is....drumroll please.......Priority Records head BRYAN TURNER. You see Eazy was essentially printing money. I mean literally because he had a "product" that NO ONE ELSE possessed. So he called all the shots. He only came to labels for DISTRIBUTION and not a PARTNERSHIP. As in evidence that the J.J. Fad and the D.O.C. projects were through Atco/Atlantic distribution and Tairrie B was through Comptown/MCA Records. Whereas E and N.W.A. were solely through Priority. When you spread your money like that, no one label can tell you what to do. So E printing money meant Bryan Turner wanted in. Distribution is good but OWNERSHIP AND DISTRIBUTION IS BETTER. So who is the easiest member to approach about a partnership? The street savvy Vet or the musical genius who only cares about the studio and getting laid? No, you come at the college educated good kid with the two parent's who want the most for their son and you tell him to look at his "contracts" because "I can pay you waaaaay more than $75k." Plus you give the kid who wants to be as big as his mentors the chance to be "in charge". When Dre left whom did he consult too? Look at the back of your "Chronic" cd or LP and tell me whom it is distributed by? Why would E eventually stop messing with them and take BONE somewhere else? BECAUSE HE KNEW. When Snoop left Deathrow, whom did he run screaming to in order to get out of his contract? AND as to not get pressed by Suge, who convinced Master P to pay the money to get Snoop out of his deal and wound up with him eventually anyway? So you see, if you break the guys up, you find a way to own them all and eat big time. You can't get full off of just some "California Raisins". There's waaaaay more to this but LEAVE JERRY AND SUGE ALONE. They portrayed this man a kind, gentle man in the movie when it's quite the opposite. BTW, who do you think hired Suge first?

#AGonIGSoapbox: I know many of you read Dr. Dre's GENERAL apology to the "people" he may have "wronged" when he was younger to which many of you screamed "BULLS***!!!!!!" This was done not because he had a sudden epiphany but because he is OFFICIALLY CORPORATE. He an officer of one of the biggest companies in the world, Apple. A company that has?STOCKHOLDERS. They do not want their bottom line messed with so, "Mr. Young we have written you a blanket statement which you will FULLY ENDORSE. You understand?" Besides which did you think he was going to address the women he has beat up by name??? Michel'le, Dee Barnes, Tairrie B, Plus countless others? Hell to the No! "Take this statement and watch My movie do $200 million at the box office!" Posted years ago: By @artemusgordon via @RepostWhiz app: As illustrated by this letter, even the biggest and baddest rappers are insecure. Dre met his wife Nicole while she was married to former Los Angeles Laker Sedalle Threatt. From 1992-1994, Sedalle, who took over for Magic Johnson as Laker point guard(go back in my posts), was the Lakers best player. Sedalle's biggest problem was he LOVED mixing groupies recklessly. This allowed Dre to slide in and scoop Nicole. The same tactics Dre used to get Michel'le from Ice Cube, the "I CAN LOVE YOU BETTER" strategy, is what Dre used with Nicole. For Dre to even mention Sedalle in this "love letter" shows how fragile even the richest and toughest of tough guys can be. I guess the plan worked as he has Nicole, two kids and the "wild savage" that once was Dr. Dre is now tamed also known as "no more good good music". (#RepostWhiz app)

kimberly4043 : Right, the letter said they were looking for a location. Dre is very visual & was already projecting a concept for that single before the single was even cut. He knew Pac was gonna sign with Death Row. He even states in the letter "once Pac gets out"
frankabagnale_ : A bitch nigga is a bitch nigga,no matter how much money they have. Money probably makes those type of guys even more insecure. No man should ever mention another man when trying to get a woman. At risk of sounding redundant using a rather trite statement,that was a hater move yo.

#AGonIGSoapbox: Today I wanted to finish the N.W.A. saga with the reveal of the ringleader in their breakup but then this happened. I'm very disturbed by this not because it is a Black Man per say but I'm "put off" by the growing trend the desire, no scratch that, starvation in African American society to be "famous". These actions by Vester Flanigan p.k.a. Bryce Williams are not only heinous but down right demented. Flanigan/Williams killed his two rivals at his former station because he was angry. He claims the female, Parker, made "racial" remarks and the male, Ward, complained to HR about him after only working for one day. What some African American men fail to realize is in "Corporate America", when they are upset about something "people" go on high alert. You can't just be having a "bad DAY" no they feel like your going pull a "Abdullah" from the film "Car Wash" and hurt someone. Couple this with being a gay man in probably a not so progressive city in Virginia and you have the makings for depression and disaster. There are a set of "different" rules for Black men period and Vester thought that they didn't apply. The news business is an ever changing "dog eat dog world" and for that station, he didn't fit their plans which interrupted his plan to become famous. So to get the ONE thing he wanted in life he chose to kill two people and injure a third on live TV then post the vid to his FB and Twitter accounts. He claims he did it as payback for the Charleston killings but he is NO MARTYR in My eyes. He is just a donkey mad that he had to repress his sexuality. Mad he did all that body building to only become a low rent escort. Mad he was really a coward and he had to sneak up behind two defenseless people who were none the wiser. Just mad that he hated himself and everything about himself and blamed HIMSELF for not being famous. Now he's the Bitch. "Bye Felicia!"

#AGonIGSoapbox: With the dearth of Female M.C.'s in Hip Hop plaguing the planet, it would have been great for "Straight Outta Compton" to show who really paved the way for N.W.A. and Ruthless Records. The first project to drop with the "RUTHLESS" logo was J.J. Fad, an all female Rap group. They were the ones who lit the fuse and gave Eazy and the Homies the time and more importantly, capital, to finish the album "Straight Outta Compton" comfortably. The Ladies' album went Gold bolstered by it's hit CLASSIC single, "Supersonic", which went platinum. The song was produced by the SIXTH member of N.W.A., Arabian Prince(top left). "Who AG??? I ain't heard of him and he ain't in the movie!!" In the beginning stages of the group and with no clear path to their niche, N.W.A. did both reality rap and dance music. The dance music portions were produced by Arabian Prince. Prince created "Panic Zone" and "Something To Dance To" for the group. His style of music was at the forefront of what is basically EDM today. He eventually left or was dismissed from them after a "disagreement" with Eazy. Hahahahhaha!! He landed on his feet though and signed what was then a big record deal with Orpheous Records. He was living good in a very nice section of LA rolling around in a brand new '90 convertible Porsche. I used to see him all the time and ask what he was doing and his answer was, "I'm selling big in Europe." Hey this is Rap music and sometimes you're "jammin' in Bucharest" harder than you are in Compton. BTW when(not if) the group gets elected to the Rock n' Roll Hall Of Fame, If I am him, I AM WALKING ON THAT STAGE RIGHT ALONGSIDE EVERYONE ELSE AND GETTING MY TROPHY!!!!!
