GOOD HAIR opens Friday, October 9th!

After over two years of hard work, appearances at the Sundance and Toronto film festivals, and much online chatter Good Hair debuts this Friday, October 9th in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta and the District of Columbia. Everything you've heard is true -- its funny as hell and thoughtful as any good documentary should be. I produced it so you can trust me on this! Opens in Canada in October 16 and in other cities around the U.S. October 23. Buy and ticket and then just sit back & relax.

Hip Hop Honors, which I executive produce, airs for the sixth time on VH1 Tuesday, October 13th, at 9 pm ET/PT.. This year the show is dedicated to the 25th anniversary of Def Jam Records with an all-star team line up MCs. The Roots, Public Enemy, Method Man, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Warren G, DMX, Onyx, Eve, Oran 'Juice' Jones, Wale, Gym Class Heroes, Redman, Ja Rule, Ashanti and host Tracy Morgan.
BLACK ATLAS is a black travel site that I serve as editor at large for. This summer I've been to Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Milan, Miami, Los Angeles, Kingston, Montego Bay and London to shot videos, write blogs and take pictures. You are invited to join in and share your travel adventures at
It was well received at the recent UrbanWorld Film Festival in New York and the Africa in the Picture Film Festival in Amsterdam.  If you haven't seen the great Reg E. Cathey in action as a disgruntled barber here you go:

Catch ya in the air.
