Black Stars on the Rise
Entertainers are doing more than just rapping and singing nowadays. They have branched out to doing more amazing things everyday including branching out into Television.
Nicki Minaj, one of the only platinum selling female rapper’s, has been given the opportunity to star and produce in a series about her life with the television network ABC. After revealing the accomplishment via Twitter, the Barbie’s, aka Nicki’s followers and fans, went haywire with excitement. The pilot will be coming soon, which will also give fans the opportunity to learn a little more about the artist.
Snoop Dogg has been no rookie to reality Television. Snoop and his family have graced our screens, letting us into their everyday lives, while gaining a little more fan base. We learned that Snoop is a family man and has always put his family first. Now, Snoop is heading to the big screen to broadcast another accomplishment that he is passionate about. Snoop created a little league football team in 2005 and has been making an impact in the business ever since. Snoop has teamed up with AOL for an eight episode series as he travels with his team to document various games and other players.
Jay-Z has always been a mogul in the music business and hasn’t stopped yet, even after he’s supposed to retire, the star is still proving that he is someone to be reckoned with. With his title also comes rumors, and since Jay-Z keeps his life so secret, it isn’t hard to wonder what the star is up to behind closed doors. Rumor was that Jay-Z was down with Tidal, a high fidelity music streaming company, and what better way to crush rumors then to simply tweet. The star recently tweeted about Tidal hitting a million followers and how he was going to celebrate on the twentieth of October in Brooklyn, New York. All three artist prove everyday that they are more than just entertainers, but entrepreneurs that refuse to be ignored. Congratulations guys on your continued success.
