#CelebNews New Jay Z Documentary Has Never-Before-Told Stories Behind Reasonable Doubt Album [VIDEO]


As the 20th Anniversary of Jay Z’s 1996 debut Reasonable Doubt approaches, a new documentary sheds light on the lesser known architects behind the classic album.

Jay Z’s first classic offering is hitting a 20-year milestone this Saturday, June 25. But outside of a couple events here and there, there hasn’t been any real rollout of a celebration, even from Jay himself.

Luckily, documentarian Kobie Brown caught up with some of the producers and personalities behind the album to share never-before-heard stories about the making of the album.

Per Brown:
In its continuing effort to uplift the culture, The Kobie Chronicles presents Beyond A Reasonable Doubt. Beyond A Reasonable Doubt  is a four-part series that looks at some of the characters and conditions that gave birth to Jay Z’s, Reasonable Doubt, a Hip Hop classic.

Beyond A Reasonable Doubt will be a four-part series featuring the likes of producer Ski Beatz, former Roc-A-Fella lawyer and now podcaster Reggie “Combat Jack” Osse and “Pain In Da Ass,” the voice that brought you the “OK! I’m reloaded!” skit. We even have a Peedi Crack sighting in it.

Continue reading to see the trailer for the documentary and some of the outtakes. Part 1 and Part 2 of Beyond A Reasonable Doubt are currently streaming at TheKobie.TV.

#CelebNews LeBron James Jr. drops DIMES in-front of Dad! Top Schools Offer Scholarships!

11-year old LeBron James, Jr. is reportedly getting scholarship offers from Duke and Kentucky.The small nugget of information was found buried in an ESPN article about LeBron James leading his Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Championship. In writing about James’ epic chasedown block on Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala, reporters Dave McMenamin and Brian Windhorst slipped in a detail on the latest news in LeBron James, Jr’s budding basketball career.

Per ESPN:


With each step, champagne squishing in his sneakers from the postgame celebration that was but a teaser for the rager that awaits the Cavs back in Cleveland, the best basketball player in the world verbally replayed the sequences of the most important basketball game of his life. He started by focusing on a miss, a 5-footer in the lane with 1:25 to go and the game tied at 89, cursing himself for leaving it short after re-enacting the spin move that got him free to attempt it. Paul, walking alongside, steered James’ mind back to the positive, bringing up the block — to be forever known to Cavs fans as The Chasedown — he had on Andre Iguodala the possession before. “Iguodala is a bad m—–f—–,” James snapped. “I had to go chase it down.” He raised both arms, just as he did when he pinned Iguodala’s would-be layup against the glass with his right arm, and his 11-year-old son LeBron Jr. did the same (making it no wonder why he already has standing scholarship offers from both Duke and Kentucky, according to a source).

The pre-teen James, nicknamed “Bronny,” has been a Youtube star for some time now. A clip of him running past other 11-year olds on the court has amassed more than a half-million views in just under three months. Word had been spreading about Bronny’s skills and interest from college programs. So much that in a 2015 interview LeBron himself had to step in to father mode and declare that he thinks it should be a violation for NCAA teams to approach kids who haven’t even started high school yet.If this is true, what do you think about this? Should colleges be offering free tuition and a good education to 11-year olds who are good at sports?

#CelebNews Troy Ave’s Murder Charge Dropped But Indicted On 5 Other Felonies!



TMZ is reporting that Troy Ave will likely not go to prison for the rest of his life for murder, but he may still go for all the OTHER charges he’s been hit with…
Rapper Troy Ave dodged a murder charge in that NYC shooting at a T.I. concert, but he was indicted on 5 other felonies that could land him in prison for decades.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, a grand jury has indicted Troy on one count of attempted second degree murder and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
Troy’s bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, was killed during the shootout last month, but clearly ballistic testing did not lead back to the weapon Troy was seen firing that night on video.
Mr. Avenue is nowhere CLOSE to being out of the woods. Those other charges aren’t gonna be easy to beat, but he seems pretty convinced that he’s coming home unscathed. From his lips to God’s ears…We hope and pray that all goes well for Mr. Ave and hopefully we see him putting out music again soon.

#CelebNews Childish Gambino To Appear In Spider-Man: Homecoming!

Since it was announced that Spider-Man was going to get the 

reboot treatment in 2012, fans had been clamoring for 

Marvel to cast Childish Gambino a.k.a. Donald Glover as the 

Black/Latino version of your friendly neighborhood Spider-

Man, Miles Morales. Sony eventually went with British-

American actor, Andrew Garfield, though..

When the role was going to be re-cast for Captain America: Civil War and future Marvel standalone features, rumblings again began for Marvel to cast the actor/rapper for the part.

Marvel eventually went with adolescent British actor, Tom 

Holland.

But Marvel may have a trick up its sleeve after all as 

it’s being reported that Gambino is on his way to 

finally make his Marvel cinematic debut in Spider-

Man: Homecoming.


Marvel cinematic debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming.


There’s no word yet on which role the star of the 

upcoming FX series, Atlanta will play. However, the 

internet’s imagination is already running rampant with 

rumors and theories as to which character Glover will play 

including a situation where Peter Parker will somehow find 

himself in an alternate reality in the presence of Miles 

Morales. Whoa!


It may be a while before Marvel officially unveils its plans for 

Gambino in its new Spider-Man franchise. Whatever it may 

be it’s nice to know that the comic book conglomerate does 

indeed have it’s ear to the Hip-Hop culture.

#CelebNews Big Sean Donates $25K To Help Homeless College Students!



Big Sean is putting up some big bread to help college 

students in need.


While getting into college alone can be challenging at times, 

staying in there and living through it is an even bigger hurdle 

for some people. Big Sean hopes to make the experience a 

little easier for students at Wayne State University in his 

hometown Detroit.



The rapper is donating 

$25,000 through his Sean 


establish an endowment for 

WSU’s HIGH 

[Helping Individuals Go 

Higher] Program. The HIGH 

Program was founded in 

2013 to address student 

homelessness at the school. 

The program provides short-term assistance with the goal of 

returning students to long- term stability and helping them 

complete their degree.


Per release from WSU:

The HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program helps financially stressed students at 

Wayne State University reach their goal to graduate. The program provides resources for 

students-in-need, such as housing support, textbooks and other school supplies, clothing, 

transportation, and child-care assistance. The mission of the program is to ensure that no 

student abandons their dream of earning a degree solely because of housing or financial 

challenges. 


The donation falls in line with what Big Sean has 

been rapping about for years. Throughout his 2012 

mixtape Detroit, Big Sean spoke on what he felt 

needed to happen the education system in his 

hometown and in cities across America.
