Tank vocalist extraordinaire latest song, ‘Stronger,’ is receiving overwhelming response on my show, Majic After Dark,’ The Quiet Storm, and everytime I play it my phone light up. But across the country his most recent album is being met with mixed reviews and Tank is not taking the luke warm reception and poor record sales to well. The latest from Tank is that he posted a photo of himself on Instagram in bed along with what you’d call a rant. ‘If I look tired it’s because I am. I’m deeply saddened and disappointed that ‘Stronger will not get a video or continued promotion it deserves!, he starts off with. Now the ‘Stronger he’s referring to is his latest album which was released back in August. From what I hear is not selling very well; it’s first week of sales was under 17,000 units. What I took from the rant, Tank…

How Much Is Idris Elba Worth?

Originally posted on Z 107.9:

Pacific Rim - European Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

What is Idris Elba’s net worth? Idris Elba is worth $12 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Idris Elba’s net worth is the result of his extensive film and television work, as the British actor has amassed quite a resume, starring on the beloved shows “The Wire” and “Luther” and appearing in such films as “Pacific Rim,” “American Gangster” and “28 Days Later.”

Idris Elba’s net worth, $12 million, is perhaps even more impressive when you consider where he came from. Born to African parents in London, the 41-year-old English thespian struggled to find acting gigs after moving to America. He was “sofa-hopping here and there,” as he told GQ magazine in a 2013 interview, and for a while, he even lived in his Astro van. While working as a doorman at a comedy club, he sold drugs, and while he crossed…

One thing that is factual and tactical is that Tristan Wilds is the man of the hour when it comes to the ladies. While most transitions from the acting realm to the world of music are met with abrasion, Mack Wild’s re-invention has been the talk of the town.

At the top of October, the artist formerly known as the actor Tristan made his full bloom into Mack Wilds with the release of New York: A Love Story, his debut album reminiscent of his very own love story in the city that made him.

The folks over at Stuff Fly People Like were smart enough to snag the rapper/singer/actor/heartthrob for their latest digital cover that released simultaneously with the album on October 1st. In the corresponding interview, Mack touches on everything from his personal style, to what this cross into music means for him.

Check out Tristan owning it for SFPL in the photos…

Isaiah Washington Takes Shots At Those Who Abandoned Him

The D.C Sniper film ”Blue Caprice” opens in theaters today and actor Isaiah Washington reminds audiences why he is one of the finest actors of his generation.  Based on the real life Beltway Sniper killings of 2002,  Washington plays John Allen Muhammad,  a mysterious drifter who takes troubled teenager John Lee Malvo (Tequan Richmond) under his wing, forging a dysfunctional and ultimately dangerous co-dependent father-son type relationship.

Helmed by director Alexandre Moors, “Blue Caprice” is a chilling and meditative study on this country’s obsession with guns and violence, and how the American Dream deferred can slowly curdle into bitterness and retribution. By not  sensationalizing the bloody violence from Malvo and Muhammad’s shooting spree, “Blue Caprice” focuses on the “why” rather than the “what” of their crimes.

The Urban Daily attended a private screening and Q&A with Washington and Moors.  Washington sounds…
