*Jeezy opened up on the “Tamron Hall Show” and dropped gems when speaking about his life and eventual success. He talked about his life growing up in poverty and the trauma he faced. “I learned that vulnerability is power,” he said to Tamron Hall. “I thought something was wrong with me, thinking I come from poverty; this is just how it is. I didn’t understand trauma and all these different things, so when I started to get the words for it, I started to understand and grab tools, I started to become better.” He added, “I started my journey, and that’s why I’m expressing it and putting it in the book because I didn’t know I was depressed for like eight years of my life straight.” The charismatic rapper even contemplated suicide, “So it was all this stuff in my head. I just remember standing there, and it was for a brief moment, I would say at least about 10 minutes, I actually contemplated jumping in the water,” Jeezy said. “I had never had suicidal thoughts, but I [thought], ‘Well, sh**, if I just jump in the water, I ain’t gotta deal with this. I ain’t gotta go back home. I gotta do none of these things.'” However, his conscience told advised him against unaliving himself, “‘No, bro. You gonna have to man up. You gonna have to go back home. You got to figure this out.'” He decided not to jump, and when he got back home, he claimed he was “ready for anything.”

If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

Patti LaBelle once called Keke Wyatt a heifer for singing “If Only You Knew” at a level Patti admitted she could not sing the tune. Aww, Aunt Sweet Potatoe Pie Patti, your version will always be a staple.

The cast of the much anticipated musical “The Color Purple” graced the November/December issue of Essence magazine. “Thank you all for this. I can’t even begin to tell you what it means to me—a person who wanted nothing more in my life than to be in The Color Purple. And God taught me to surrender—that was the big lesson for me. They were only offering $35,000 to be in this film, and it is the best $35,000 I ever earned. It changed everything and taught me so much. It is God moving through my life. And to have all of you beautiful Black women bearing witness to the story, as the story moves forward, means so much. I believe that what Fantasia has said is true: Everybody who comes to see our film is going to be touched. They will be moved. And they will be healed. So thank you for the blessing.Thank you all for this. I can’t even begin to tell you what it means to me—a person who wanted nothing more in my life than to be in The Color Purple.
