Method Man rocked with an ASL translator at Jazz Fest



Method Man’s music has stood the test of time. Whether solo or a member of the Wu-Tang Clan, Method Man has a catalog of songs that everyone loves.

Yesterday (April 28) at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, the Wu-Tang Clan performed a rousing set that included several of their classics. During the Wu-Tang Clan’s “Can It All Be So Simple”, Method felt the rhythm of the music and the energy of the audience. Also sign language interpreter Method showed a bright energy, who was clearly carried away by the song.

In the fan-made video, Method quickly spots the sign language interpreter and is clearly delighted by how quickly she signs to the beat.

This is not the first time a translator has gone viral for delving into the music during a live performance. Back in February, Rihanna’s sign language interpreter became the talk of the internet after she perfectly signed the beat to Rea’s music while punching out some dance moves.

And of course we’ve all seen the viral video Waka Flocka Flame plays along with his translator (who appears to be the same woman at a Wu-Tang performance) after mistaking her autograph for a dance.

You can watch a clip of Method Man’s performance above.

Rap artist Big U’s son blazes his own trail with the Chargers NFL



COSTA MESA, California. — Diane Henley grew up with a famous father. The spotlight is now on him after he was selected in the third round of the NFL Draft by his hometown Los Angeles Chargers.

Henley, who played linebacker at Washington State, was selected 85th overall on Friday night.

Recording executive Eugene “Big U” Henley has worked with many top West Coast rappers including Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and the late Nipsey Hussle. The elder Henley also helped produce and was featured in the 2021 FX documentary series Hip Hop Uncovered.

“Perhaps I am now one of the most famous people he knows. It’s just crazy to just be on the other side of that aspect,” Diane Henley said at the command complex on Saturday.

Eugene now runs Developing Options, a non-profit organization that helps at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Diane’s mother, Stacey, also works for the foundation.

Henley said his parents deserve a lot of credit for his success.

When it comes to docu-series featuring his father, Henley said he already knew most of the stories told, but there were still a couple that were new to him.

In addition to his association with music, Big U is a former gang leader. He was arrested for drugs and served 12 years of a 23-year sentence.

“This guy has done a lot of things in the past and is teasing me about getting C’s in his class. That’s the kind of father I had,” said Henley. “When I watch this documentary, I’m already deep in college and I’m like, ‘Hey dude. You were wild then. They scold me here because I have a three or I left garbage somewhere. ” What, you can’t do that.”

Henley’s career has been an interesting journey. He grew up in South Central Los Angeles and played in Crenshaw, one of the top high school programs in the city. He was primarily a quarterback, but ended up playing five different positions, including kicker.

Henley began his college career in Nevada in 2017 and played wide receiver for his first two seasons. He moved to safety in 2019 but only played four games before suffering a season-ending injury and redshirting. After two years in supporting roles, he moved to the midfield position in 2021 and led the team with 103 tackles.

Henley moved to Washington State last season and was named to the All-Pac 12 First Team. He was second in the conference with 106 tackles and his 12 stoppages for a loss tied for fifth.

He has also played in all four cover and return units on special teams with the Cougars and is expected to contribute immediately in these areas for the Chargers.

While Henley and his parents are happy to have been picked by the hometown team, he joked that being nearby has its downsides.

“As excited as I am, I need to figure out how to keep my mom from my address, so if you guys have any ideas on how to hide the address from your mother, I need those tips,” he said. He. laughing

‘The Daily Show’ moves into the post-Trevor Noah era, paying tribute: Contenders TV – Deadline



daily show six months were busy after host Trevor Noah surprised everyone by announcing he was retiring after seven years.

Noah’s last show was in December, and the Comedy Central series shook up the swivel chair format with guest hosts including Chelsea Handler, Kal Penn and Sarah Silverman, as well as in-house correspondents including Roy Wood Jr. and Desi Lidick. .

Showrunner Jen Flantz said during the show’s panel at the Deadline Contenders Television: Documentary + Unscripted event that it was a fun ride. “It was really great to see so many different voices given the power at the table,” she said. “It’s hard to think about the next one. No time to be sad about Trevor [leaving]No time to think about what’s next. We’re just living in it right now.”

Wood added that he enjoyed his recent stint as host. “The most I learned, the biggest difference between a correspondent and hosting is that as a correspondent you get the freedom to be a bit of an agent of chaos and support a bigger story. But as a host, you still need to be able to find the truth, feelings, or emotions behind something.”

He also revealed that Noah sometimes drops by to watch the show and Wood teases him by saying that it’s like watching his ex-girlfriend.

The trio agreed that Noah has been a huge influence on the franchise. Flanz said Noah was adamant about two things: finding viewers where they are, especially online, and building his content across platforms.

“I don’t think anyone saw daily show the table was occupied by someone when Trevor took over from John Stewart,” she added. “He kind of paves the way for the guests [hosts]so someone other than John could take the table, and he did it very well.”

David Kibuuka, the show’s lead producer and writer, said he was sad that Noah had left, but added that there was a “boost of energy” every week with new hosts. “Trevor said it was time for him to leave, so we all think of it as more of an opportunity. We’re having a good time – and he’s not dead.”

Come back Monday for the video panel.
