Tumbleweeds with Killer Mike

WM Technology, Inc. (“WM Technology” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: MAPS) and Weedmaps, the leading online marketplace and premier destination for cannabis consumers, announced the forthcoming premiere of the Company’s new, original cannabis-centric docuseries, Tumbleweeds with Killer Mike. Hosted by rapper and activist Killer Mike, the series was produced by Wheelhouse DNA and Wheelhouse Labs and distributed through VICE Media Group. The first two episodes of the four-part series will air on VICE TV on April 20—a day to celebrate the impact and evolution of cannabis culture in America—starting at 10 PM ET.

Touring four cities that are central to cannabis culture—Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York and Chicago—Killer Mike brings viewers along as he visits each city to show how the power of entertainment, cannabis and inclusivity can build community. Throughout the series, Killer Mike will sit down with comedians such as Jocelyn Chia, Napoleon Emil, and Ngaio Bealum, along with American artist and hip-hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy and cannabis advocate and Veteran Cherissa Jackson (who works with AMVETS). Together they visit cannabis dispensaries including RISE and Stiiizy, restaurants and clothing stores such as Cafe Cannal, Outta Sight Pizza, and Extra Butter to name a few, as the docuseries explores individual stories and experiences first-hand. 

Tumbleweeds with Killer Mike challenges existing perceptions of cannabis, further normalizing the industry and showcasing what the plant has done and will continue to do for communities. Each episode will look at the characteristics that define a city’s identity, allowing for a better understanding of how cannabis intersects with culture.

“As the original online marketplace for cannabis consumers and businesses, we have always been committed to elevating voices that power the cannabis community, drive social equity, and further legalization,” said Juanjo Feijoo, CMO and COO of Weedmaps. “The intersection of comedy, local culture and cannabis is a natural fit as all are driven by shared values of creativity, discovery and connection.”

In addition, dropping on 4/20, Weedmaps will offer access to exclusive, bonus content through its mobile app for the duration of the series. Through this in-app experience, users will be able to learn more about the businesses in each episode, shop for products available in their area, and support AMVETS by making a donation on their site.

“Tumbleweeds has been a fun show to be a part of. Getting a chance to smoke a plant my mom and I love, hang out and laugh with hilarious comedians, all while frequenting local businesses and art installations—you’ll never hear me complain about my job!” said Killer Mike.

Tumbleweeds with Killer Mike will premiere April 20 (4/20), with the first two episodes featuring Las Vegas and San Francisco, respectively, followed by New York on 5/1, Chicago on 5/8 and a marathon of all four episodes on 5/15.

Podcast via 360 Magazine

Alison Interviews – Kadeem Hardison

Actor and director Kadeem Hardison is known for his iconic TV role as Dwayne Wayne on the groundbreaking NBC sitcom A Different World, which aired for seven seasons, from 1987 through 1993, and highlighted the lives and relationships of Black college students attending the fictional HBCU, Hillman College. The show also starred Lisa Bonet, Marisa Tomei, Jasmine Guy, Sinbad, Jada Pinkett Smith, Cree Summer, and Darryl M. Bell, among others.

Kadeem went on to play Zendaya’s father in Disney Channel’s K.C. Undercover, and to recur in Showtime’s Black Monday. Hardison will now star in the upcoming AMC television series, Moonhaven, which takes place 100 years in the future in a utopian society set on a 500 square mile Garden of Eden built on the Moon.

The following are excerpts from the latest episode of the Allison Interviews podcast with host and entertainment journalist, Allison Kugel, interviewing Kadeem Hardison. Hardison talks about his relationships with Lisa Bonet, Marisa Tomei and Jasmine Guy, directing Tupac Shakur and Jada Pinkett Smith together, his friendship with Zendaya, and wishing Malcolm X were alive while he was growing up. The full podcast episode is available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify, and the video episode of the podcast is available on YouTube

On Lisa Bonet confiding in him about how early fame affected her

“I had worked with Lisa [Bonet] the year before A Different World.  I did a guest spot on The Cosby Show and I was just really interested to know how she dealt with the fame thing. She was probably the most famous person I had ever met at that point. So, our conversations were me asking her, ‘So what’s it like with that big spotlight on you everywhere you go.’  She said, ‘Well, you know, I used to love to go to malls and I don’t go to malls anymore. I used to love to go out to the movies and I can’t do that anymore.’  It was all about these things that were kind of restricted, or she restricted herself from, because it brought so much attention. She was someone I was gaining knowledge from. Then on A Different World, I got to pretend to have a crush on Lisa, which was the easiest job in America.” 

On having a crush on Jasmine Guy as soon as they met

“I met Jasmine the year before [A Different World].  We did a film together. Our characters didn’t speak, but in the down time we kind of got to hang out a little bit and be at parties and stuff like that. Oh boy, I had a crush on Jasmine the minute I saw her. When I met Jasmine [Guy] it was an instant skipped heartbeat. Once Lisa was gone, I got to pretend to fall in love with Jasmine (on A Different World).”

On Marisa Tomei’s character being the only white character on A Different World

“[Marisa] was cast before I got there. Usually when you make a show, you better have some white characters in it (laugh), or someone is going to raise hell. Someone is going to say, ‘Why are there no white folks on it?’  It’s a historically Black university. Black being the operative word. But I loved her character.  I was sad when she was gone in the second season.” 

On Marisa Tomei and Kadeem wanting their A Different World characters to get together

“During the first season she and I both lobbied to the writers to put us together. Let us have more scenes together. Let something develop between us. Like why doesn’t she see him? Why doesn’t he see her?  It just seemed so obvious that the two weirdest outcasts would kind of find each other. I thought our characters were kind of made for each other, because she was kind of off, and I was definitely off. I thought, ‘Nobody sees him out of the group.’ Like the girls that I’m chasing all the time; nobody sees him.  Why doesn’t she see him and why doesn’t he see her?  They seemed like they could bond off of their uniqueness, or the fact that they are both a little bit off. But at the time it was ‘let’s keep the blacks with the black, and the whites with the whites.’ It’s crazy.”

On directing Jada Pinkett Smith and Tupac Shakur together on A Different World

“It was fantastic. They had a seamless chemistry.  How do you direct De Niro and Pacino?  You just kind of stand back and let them go. You hope that the cameras are in focus. I didn’t really have to tell him much.  I didn’t have to tell her hardly anything. It was a joy to watch.  It was probably the easiest directing job. The fight scene we had to tweak a little bit.  We had to work on it, because it was a fight between Jada’s character’s current boyfriend and Pac’s character.  So, we had to spend some time working that out, but once I said ‘Action,’ it took on a life of its own. It felt like a real fight. It felt like a real brawl, and that was Pac.  That was him going in, like, ‘I’m going to whoop this sucker.’ It was awesome to direct the two of them.  They were good buds and I kept asking her, ‘Is he going to show up? Because I have lots of rapper friends and I knew that [being on] time is not their friend?  She said, ‘Yes, he’s coming. He’s on his way.’

“I always felt like I loved Tupac as a rapper, but I was jealous of him as an actor, because I just thought he had such range. He could touch places that I didn’t know if I could go. I just wanted to watch.  But it wasn’t Macbeth, you know what I mean?  He’s playing the neighborhood cat that comes in full of bravado to claim the girl he thinks is his. He was like, ‘Yeah, I can do that.’  (laugh). [Jada] was playing the girl who was trying to get away from that life. There were no real notes for them. There was no reason to say, ‘Hey try it like this.’ Everything they did was magic.”

On almost turning down playing Zendaya’s dad in Disney Channel’s K.C. Undercover

“When K.C. Undercover came along, I didn’t really know who Zendaya was and I was a little skeptical about [the] Disney Channel.  I wanted to curse, bleed, and do all kinds of adult stuff, and that’s not going to happen with the Disney Channel. When I got word of the audition I was in New York and my nieces and my sisters were asking me, ‘What are you doing next?’  I said, ‘Well, there’s this show with this girl named Zendaya or something like that, and they want me to be her daddy.’ Everyone from my six-year-old niece to my 30-year-old sister all flipped out and said, ‘You have to take that. That girl is going to be something!’”

On celebrating with Zendaya when she landed her role in Spider-Man

“She’s my ace, and all of these moves she’s made have been really well thought out.  I was there when she booked Spider-Man and we jumped around the room like, ‘Holy sh*t, you’re going to be in Spider-Man? What?!’ And I was there when she got the musical with Hugh Jackman, The Greatest Showman. I knew that once we get out of Disney world, we just want to get a chance to get our hands on some meat, to see if we can really act, because we’ve been doing nice, easy cotton candy for so long. I have to see if I can really throw down still.  Her show, Euphoria was it, and I’m loving it!”

On why he wishes Malcolm X was alive while he was growing up

“Once you die, you become a god, but I think if he was still around, the teaching would have reached more.  He would have had to grow, change, and adapt.  All of that would have made him better, and us better, for having him. He would have been able to import that into us. It’s hard to say, because now he is It. He’s the one you look to and say, ‘This is what this guy said,’ or ‘This is what he was saying,’ but you never get to hear what he would have said had he lived another 10, 20, or 30 years. That’s where it would have gotten groovy, because I think he was gone before I was born. It would have been nice to see him as a real person instead of this god that you have to read about in books, or look at on old tapes from the time that he was living, and not the times we’re living in. In my 20s, I would have liked to know what he thought about the world we were living in. In my 40s, I would have liked to know what he thought about the world we are in. That’s the version of things I would want.”

Kandi and the Gang

Bravo‘s newest series follows the heart and soul behind the Atlanta restaurant Old Lady Gang (“OLG”) when Kandi & The Gang premieres on Sunday, March 6 at 9:00pm ET/PT. In the heart of the city, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker run an ever-evolving restaurant empire. Their Southern-eatery, OLG, named after the ‘Old Lady Gang’ consisting of Kandi’s mom, Mama Joyce, and Aunts Nora and Bertha, is busier than ever. The restaurant has been a fan-favorite with lines down the block and classic Southern dishes, but peeling back the curtains on this family-owned and operated restaurant reveals that mixing business and relatives can sometimes create a recipe for tension. For a sneak peek, please click HERE.

 Kandi & The Gang chronicles Kandi, Todd and OLG’s dynamic staff as they face a much-needed change at the restaurant while juggling their career ambitions, larger-than-life personalities, and personal lives. After being hit with a myriad of obstacles, Kandi and Todd step in with a plan to turn the tide. With tensions rising as family members don’t perform up to standards, a little tough love and a lot of restructuring will shake things up with the staff, whether they’re ready for it or not.

Kandi & The Gang is produced by Truly Original, Kandi Koated Entertainment, T Tucker Productions with Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker, Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson, Julie “Bob” Lombardi, Camilo Valdes, and Ronica Wynder serving as executive producers.

Get to know the staff at OLG

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker: For Kandi and Todd, OLG is not just a turn-up, good-time, neighborhood restaurant; it’s a business venture that allows them to employ loved ones, as long as they can keep the family in line! After focusing on building their restaurant empire over the past few years, Kandi and Todd jump in with a plan for strong leadership and a staff shakeup to bring the original OLG back to its former glory.

The OLGs–Mama Joyce Jones, Aunt Nora Wilcox, and Aunt Bertha Jones: Namesakes of the restaurant, the “Old Lady Gang” work at OLG and keep a watchful eye over the staff’s lives. Kandi’s mom, Mama Joyce, is the life of the party with all the tea, Aunt Nora is feisty but loving, and Aunt Bertha is the side-eye queen of Atlanta! The ladies are strong, opinionated, and speak their mind.

DonJuan Clark: DonJuan is Kandi’s right-hand man and oversees all of Kandi and Todd’s business ventures. As Kandi’s eyes and ears, he runs the operations for all her businesses as their general manager—which often puts him in the position to mediate between staff members. At the restaurant, DonJuan is ready to shift the culture from laid-back to buttoned-up. 

Phillip Frempong: An Atlanta native, Phillip has a long history developing restaurants. He was introduced to Kandi and Todd a few years ago, and began consulting at Blaze Steak & Seafood, the Burruss-Tuckers’ upscale restaurant across town. After his successful tenure there, Phillip moved to OLG guns “Blaze”-ing to get the staff back on track. Phillip tries to set a new tone at OLG, but the staff isn’t as receptive to his straightforward and polished ways as expected.

Shawndreca Robinson: Shawndreca is the first, and self-proclaimed original, hostess at OLG. She can be salty with a sharp tongue that occasionally gets her in trouble with management. Shawndreca has been known to run a minute or two late to her shifts, so Kandi and Todd bring in another host to help get things back on track. Outside of OLG – Shawndreca’s love life has a complicated tie to the restaurant because of her past entanglement with OLG valet owner, Patrick.

Dom’Unique Variety: Dom’Unique is the self-proclaimed “day one” bartender at OLG and dancer who has performed with Kandi on the “Welcome to the Dungeon” Tour and even with thee hot girl, Megan Thee Stallion. Her dreams of dancing professionally are her #1 priority, sometimes at the expense of her shifts at the restaurant. Dom’s close with her workplace besties, Torin and Shawndreca, and her budding flirtationship with a co-worker is becoming the talk of OLG.

Torin Mitchell: Torin previously worked at OLG as a manager, but with his event planning and interior decorating side hustle, he was spread too thin at the restaurant and left to run his events business full time. Torin has always wanted to see OLG succeed, and with his strong work ethic and commitment to going above and beyond, Kandi and Todd have invited him back as the resident events manager.

Brandon Black: An Atlanta transplant from Queens, NY, Brandon is the manager at OLG. Even though Brandon may be known as the workplace flirt, he is responsible for overseeing the staff, their ever-changing schedules and handling any issues that arise. Now that Phillip has stepped in to get the restaurant back on track, Brandon needs to maintain his professionalism with co-workers-turned-flings.

Patrick Dallas: Patrick is Kandi’s cousin and Aunt Bertha’s grandson. In the middle of the family business, he manages the OLG parking lot behind the restaurant and even has a few side hustles, from real estate to an all-natural luxury body essentials line. Despite his past as OLG’s resident ladies’ man, Patrick is smitten with his girlfriend, Safari Foxe, who is less than pleased to see Patrick and Shawndreca still crossing paths.

Brian Redmond: Brian is the head-ex bartender at OLG who’s back as a server. Ever the entertainer, Brian makes everyone laugh at their tables and on stage where he performs stand-up comedy. Outside of the restaurant, Brian launched his own business and he’s eager to integrate his specialty food items onto the menu at OLG.

Melvin Jones: Melvin has strong familial ties to OLG–he’s tight with Kandi, his grandmother, Bertha, and Cousin Patrick. At the restaurant, he’s the kitchen manager, responsible for keeping everything and everyone running according to plan. Melvin is a hard worker, but after running into a few issues, Todd has some concerns about the kitchen. Has Melvin been delt a difficult hand at the restaurant or will Kandi and Todd have to part ways with a family member for the greater good of OLG?

Rashard Roles: Rashard “Shardo” has been finessing the host stand across town at Blaze and is now lending a hand at OLG to spice up the front of the restaurant. Rashard dresses to impress both on and off the job. He’s bringing his class, elegance, and professionalism to OLG with the hope that it will rub off on certain coworkers.

The Book of Boba Fett Soundtrack

The Book of Boba Fett Vol. 1 (Chapters 1-4) Original Soundtrack is available and will be followed by The Book of Boba Fett Vol. 2 (Chapters 5-7) on Feb. 11, 2022. Both soundtracks feature music themes by Oscar, Grammy, and Emmy-winning composer Ludwig Goransson (The Mandalorian, Tenet, Black Panther) and score by Joseph Shirley (Bad Trip, The Mysterious Benedict Society, Fairfax).

Commenting on his score, Shirley said, “The Book of Boba Fett Volume One follows Boba’s heroic journey through Chapters 1-4. Musically, it explores the genre-melding vignettes that Jon and Dave so beautifully wrote into Boba’s expanding myth.  Western, tribal, mystery, religioso epic, high-stakes action, retro-futuristic breakbeats, and classic gangster movie tendencies—they each have their moment within this soundtrack, while using Ludwig’s Main Theme as my North Star.  It’s an honor for me to contribute music to this dearly loved Star Wars universe; an adventure I do not take lightly or will ever forget!!”

“The Book of Boba Fett,” a thrilling Star Wars adventure teased in a surprise end-credit sequence following the Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.
