Africa, Community, and Empire: Ryan Coogler and Michael B Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life @balleralert Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ With the success of their first three projects: “Fruitvale Station,” “Creed” and “Black Panther”, super Director Ryan Coogler and Hollywood Star Michael B. Jordan are already teaming up for more projects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to multiple reports, the duo is now looking to start a project centered around the life of Mansa Musa. Both Coogler and Jordan feel it is important to create influential films that reflect the Black community and the contributions that have been made throughout history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “You got to tell stories in today, or in the future,” says Jordan. “Or can we go back even further? There’s always one period that people want to go back to, but can we go back to Hannibal? Or Mansa Musa, destroying economies as he traveled? Can we go back to the Egyptians?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Mansa Musa was an influential African ruler in the fourteenth century. He was emperor of the Mali Empire, a land filled with gold, which he casually handed out during his religious expedition to Mecca, ultimately causing economic crises to cities that were unfamiliar with such wealth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In 1324, Musa became the first Muslim ruler to trek almost four-thousand-miles. During his travels, he encountered rulers of the Middle East and Europe, which helped to put Mali on European maps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ He helped improve Islamic education and he also brought back government bureaucrats and architects. With the development of mosques and a major university, the city of Timbuktu became more urbanized. Musa ruled for 25 years and during that time, Western Africa was said to be at peace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While there is no word on when this project will take off, the duo is already in pre-production for another film titled “Wrong Answer,” about a 2006 standardized testing scandal in Atlanta. The sequel to “Creed” is also on the way.

Cars, Church, and Clothes: Drake Sends Haitian Mother From Miami On A $10,000 Shopping Spree @balleralert Drake Sends Haitian Mother From Miami On A $10,000 Shopping Spree-blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Drake went to Miami and blew a bag, but not on jewelry, clothes and expensive cars as most would think. It was all in charitable efforts, in fact. We all saw his school jersey uniform and scholarship blessing to the Miami school. Then topping it off with paying the tabs for an entire grocery store full of customers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now the Miami Herald reports that the 6 god showered a Haitian maid from Miami, Adelie Paret, with a $10,000 Shopping Spree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Miami Herald recently told the story of the mother of 5, who takes 2 buses to work at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, and must clean 14 rooms per shift to provide for her loved ones. Drake read her story and was inspired alongside Pittsburgh Steelers player, Antonio Brown, to adorn her like the Queen she was. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A woman called and told her that someone had made arrangements for her to get a massage, followed by an elegant dinner with a limo ride. She was unaware who had done so but decided to go along with the day of pampering. The finale of it all was a Saks & 5th Ave shopping spree. Drake and Brown met Paret there in an empty store that had been closed for just herself, and 2 other women to have the shopping experience of a lifetime. They had 45 minutes in the store with no spending limit. Imagine the possibilities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She got an $800 pair of flats for church, a $2,000 Valentino purse, a $6,000 18-karat gold necklace with diamonds, and a couple of perfumes for the road. Although speechless at the beginning of the shopping spree, the Miami Herald noted that she thanked Drake so much. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Look at Drake spreading joy all over the world. Swipe left to see Drake’s reaction to it all.
