Have a Very '90s (and Early '00s) Christmas

Is it even possible to reminisce about Christmas in the '90s without getting Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" or *Nsync's "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" stuck in your head?

If you want to take a trip down holiday season memory lane, listen to our '90s - and early '00s, because it just wouldn't be complete without Britney Spears and Destiny's Child - playlist below!

Kim's Sex Tape! Caitlyn's Book! Kardashian Family Answers Tough Questions During Intense Media Training
It’s hard to believe, but one of America’s most famous families was never officially media-trained.

On Sunday’s midseason finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim convinced her mom and sisters to meet with a communications coach so that they could each figure out how to answer the questions they tend to avoid during interviews — and no stone was left unturned.

Hip hop artist Cristion D’Or has worked with some of the biggest names in rap — Consequence, French Montana, Jadakiss, Nate Dogg, to name a few.

But his road to success was rife with false starts and difficulty. Before writing popular songs like You and Me, featuring Tory Lanez, and Deserve You, D’Or, who grew up in Washington Heights, struggled to find a purpose. The 32-year-old dropped out of high school at 17 and admitted to have done “the illegal thing” for a while,

Sterling K. Brown Opens Up About His Historic Emmy Win in Morning-After Interview

Sterling K. Brown Opens Up About His Historic Emmy Win in Morning-After Interview
Sterling K. Brown can’t stop smiling.

It’s the morning after his momentous win at the Emmy Awards, and Brown is still grinning from ear to ear. Even on just a few hours sleep, it would be hard to extinguish that famous blinding white beam, what with back-to-back trophies to his name. After winning last year for his work as Christopher Darden in “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” on Sunday night he took home the prize for best actor in a drama for “This Is Us,” as the anxiety-ridden but oh-so-lovable Randall Pearson on the NBC-20th Century Fox production.

It’s been nearly two decades since a black actor claimed the prize — a profound fact that was not lost on Brown. Andre Braugher, who starred in NBC’s “Homicide,” was one of the first people he thanked in his acceptance speech. “It is my supreme honor to follow in your footsteps,” he

Internet Genius Recreates the Beastie Boys' 'Sabotage' Video with Sesame Street Characters
If you thought the original Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” music video couldn’t be any more cinematic, try adding Sesame Street characters from the 1985 film Follow that Bird. A fan has combined the iconic ’90s vid with your favorite Muppets, and the result—featuring Big Bird and Cookie Monster—might have topped the Spike Jonze-directed original.

Adam Schleichkorn (a.k.a. Mylo the Cat) posted the mashup on his YouTube channel isthishowyougoviral. The YouTuber explained how the original video was “one of the greatest of all time” and he therefore “couldn’t do a regular old lip sync video.” Other

'G Funk': Film Review | SXSW 2017

'G Funk': Film Review | SXSW 2017
Everyone knows a few things about the long-standing hip-hop rivalry pitting West Coast vs. East Coast, but what about the West Coast vs. itself?

In the informative and somewhat hagiographic documentary G Funk, first-time director Karam Gill explores both the origins of the most essential trend in West Coast rap and how one of its foremost creators had his career temporarily sidetracked at the hands of a despotic and ruthless music executive. It’s a rags-to-riches (or is that gin-to-juice?) tale of fame, misfortune and fortune centered around producer Warren G, the late, great rapper/singer Nate Dogg and the still-going-strong Snoop...

'Sesame Street' stars Bert and Ernie chill in 'Regulate' mashup video
Someone has really decided to put the “street” in Sesame Street. An enterprising YouTuber named Adam Schleichkorn has built a mashup of the 1994 gangsta rap hit “Regulate” by Warren G and Nate Dogg by mixing in video of Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street. The end result is smoother than rollin’ in your ’64. This is far from the first time Schleichkorn has posted a video like this on his YouTube page IsThisHowYouGoViral? (It appears the answer is “yes.”) He’s previously created Muppet/rap mixes for songs like “So What’cha Want” from the Beastie Boys, “Just A Friend” from Biz Markie and Naughty By Nature’s “Hip Hop Hooray.” Since it went up on the web just two days ago, it’s already been seen nearly 600,000 times.

Wax Motif Steps It Up With Remix Of Snbrn’s “Gangsta Walk”

What is it with Nate Dogg samples in dance music tracks lately? Snbrn incorporated one from the late rapper’s “Gangsta Walk” into one of his tropical/future house hybrids of its namesake last month, but Wax Motif has repurposed it as a wobble-heavy bass house track in his new remix.

For what it’s worth, though, the samples definitely work in this context as well. Metallic effects applied to cuts of the original verse compliment the heavily modulated bass line, resulting in a danceable groove that still retains enough swagger to hold the attention of the Edm generation.

What’s more, the bridge of the song features an inventive transition into a slower hip-hop rhythm that showcases a longer section of the original sample. In an industry of one-trick ponies, it’s refreshing to see a producer find such a creative way to demonstrate their stylistic versatility.

Jordan, Hill Wanted For Def Jam Film?

With "Straight Outta Compton" such a massive success for Universal Pictures, rumors quickly followed that the studio has reportedly been considering another hip hop biopic film with one possibility being a project about the formation of Def Jam Recordings.

Deadline reports that Michael B. Jordan and Jonah Hill reportedly being eyed to play Def Jam co-founders Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin in the film but no deals are in place just yet.

If the film happens, it will be based on Simmons and Nelson George's 2002 book "Life and Def" which deals with the legendary hip hop label that defined rap in the 1980s and launched the careers of such artists as LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, Epmd, Warren G., Nate Dogg and Jay-z.

This is in contrast to a report last month which indicated a 'Compton' follow-up would be about 1990s West Coast rap label Death Row

Def Jam / Russell Simmons Biopic May Follow 'Straight Outta Compton'
Following the massive success of Universal Pictures' Straight Outta Compton, the studio is reportedly considering yet another hip-hop biopic. The movie will follow the formation of Def Jam Recordings, with Michael B. Jordan and Jonah Hill reportedly being eyed to play Def Jam co-founders Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin. No deals are in place at this time for the Def Jam/Russell Simmons Biopic, but as Deadline reports, the success of Straight Outta Compton, Fox's smash hit TV show Empire and the Broadway hit Hamilton, prove that fans are embracing hip-hop stories.

If the biopic moves forward, it will be adapted from the 2002 book Life and Def: Sex, Drugs, Money, + God, co-written by Russell Simmons and Nelson George, which follows Russell Simmons' early career and the formation of Def Jam, a legendary hip hop label that defined rap in the 80s.

Straight Outta Compton Sequel May Involve Death Row Records

Welcome to Death Row, L. Leigh Savidge’s book and acclaimed documentary, could go on to become the sequel to box office sleeper hit Straight Outta Compton, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Savidge, who served as producer on the hit biopic about famed rap group N.W.A., is just one of the concepts currently being shopped around for the inevitable follow-up, with last week bringing word that Daz Dillinger was pushing ahead with a sequel to the breakout hit despite Universal denying that any progress has been made. Under the moniker Dogg Pound 4 Life, the sequel would carry on where we left off with Straight Outta Compton, picking up the story strands revolving around the likes of Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Warren G, Kurupt, Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Suge Knigh.

Should the studio pursue Savidge’s source material, though, the follow-up would chart the rise to prominence of
