Meek Mill Drops New Song, ‘Stay Woke,’ After Fiery Performance at Bet Awards (Watch)

  • Variety
Rapper Meek Mill dropped a new song, “Stay Woke” (featuring Miguel), late Sunday after premiering it on the Bet Awards with a fiery performance that brutally depicted police violence against the black community.

The rapper, who spent several months in prison due on a controversially heavy sentence for parole violation, wore a hoodie bearing a drawing of rapper XXXTentacion, who was murdered in Florida last week. The setting for his Bet performance was an elaborate inner-city scene themed around Meek’s hometown of Philadelphia. Happy scenes of kids playing football and jumping rope are disrupted as white police charge in, arresting teenagers; a gunshot rings out and one of the children falls dead as her mother wails. Later, a policeman drapes an American flag over the child’s body. At the song’s end, Mill accompanied by the arrested figures from earlier in the segment, this time wearing orange prison togs and carrying jail-cell doors.

Saudi Arabia’s First Arabic Release Is Controversial Islamic Epic ‘The Message’

Saudi Arabia’s First Arabic Release Is Controversial Islamic Epic ‘The Message’
After Saudi Arabia recently broke its 35-year ban on cinema with Hollywood titles such as “Black Panther,” “Isle of Dogs” and “A Quiet Place,” the kingdom is now set for its first release of an Arabic film, the 4K restored version of controversial 1976 prophet Muhammad epic “The Message.”

Helmed by Syrian-American film producer and director Moustapha Akkad, “The Message” was an ambitious but failed attempt to bridge cultures with an origins-of-Islam narrative. The film was initially backed by, among others, the Saudi government of the time, but Saudi authorities subsequently turned against the film’s production as hard-line clerics gained more influence and the country took the ultra-conservative turn that caused movie theaters in the kingdom to be banned in the early 1980s.

The Message,” which was nominated for a best music Oscar in 1977, was made in two versions: one in English, toplining Anthony Quinn and Irene Papas, and

Controversial Prophet Muhammad Epic ‘The Message’ To Get Saudi Arabia Cinema Release

  • Deadline
Controversial Prophet Muhammad Epic ‘The Message’ To Get Saudi Arabia Cinema Release
Controversial 1976 epic The Message, about the life of the Prophet Muhammad and the birth of Islam, will be the first Arab film to get a commercial cinema screening in Saudi Arabia.

The Oscar-nominated film by Syrian-American director and producer Moustapha Akkad was last week cleared by the censorship board and will be screened in a restored 4K version.

In the 1970’s, the film provoked controversy and was banned from release in a number of Arab countries. The planned distribution in the U.S. sparked a terror incident resulting in the deaths of a journalist and a policeman.

The film’s restoration has been a long-time passion project for Akkad’s son, Malek Akkad, producer of the upcoming Halloween sequel. His father had began work on the film in 1974, shooting two versions simultaneously — one in Arabic and one in English. The Arabic version featured some of the biggest stars of Arab cinema,

Controversial Prophet Muhammad Film 'The Message' to Become First Arab Title to Get Saudi Release

Controversial Prophet Muhammad Film 'The Message' to Become First Arab Title to Get Saudi Release
A 4K restored edition of The Message, Moustapha Akkad's controversial 1975 film chronicling the life and times of the Prophet Muhammad, is set to become the first Arabic title to get a theatrical release in Saudi Arabia.

The historical epic was initially banned in Arab territories, encountering opposition from authorities and forcing the crew to move to Morocco and re-create model cities of Mecca and Medina for the shoot. During its release it also faced heavy backlash and theatrical banning in most Middle Eastern territories.

In the U.S., the film’s theatrical release was suspended after an extremist ...

John Legend-Produced Variety Show From ‘Late Night’ Duo Gets IFC Series Order
IFC has picked up to series Sherman’s Showcase, a scripted musical variety sketch comedy show created by former Late Night With Jimmy Fallon duo Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle, and executive produced by John Legend’s Get Lifted Film Co. RAdicalMedia is producing the eight-episode series for premiere in 2019.

Sherman’s Showcase was one of three projects on IFC’s 2018 development slate given episodic script orders, part of IFC’s “script to series” development system that the network put in place when IFC President Jennifer Caserta revamped the programming team more than four years ago.

Inspired by iconic shows such as Soul Train, American Bandstand, The Midnight Special and In Living Color, each episode of Sherman’s Showcase is hosted by Sherman McDaniel (Salahuddin) as he takes viewers through time via music and comedy drawn from the forty-year library of a legendary (but fictional) musical variety show.

One of the things, good or bad, about Michael Hirst (compared to some writer/showrunners) is that he’s pretty open with his audience.

A Scottish cinema has been criticised for cancelling a screening of the 1977 Islam-themed film The Message, despite receiving fewer than 100 complaints, reports the Scotsman.

The Grosvenor Cinema in Glasgow was due to screen Moustapha Akkad’s Oscar-nominated film about the prophet Muhammad and the birth of Islam, next month.
