Quincy Jones is spilling all types of tea this year. He is now claiming Ray Charles is the reason he had issues with heroin.
As HipHopDX notes the iconic producer is making his promotional rounds for his upcoming Netflix documentary Quincy. He recently made an appearance on the Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast. While he discussed the movie and a host of other points of his storied career, one particular story is raising eyebrows.
When talking through his early days as a musician he noted how the late great Ray Charles introduced him to the white girl. “After we finished at the Washington Social Club and a couple of other ones, we’d all go down to Jackson Street to the Elks Club. That’s where all the bebop jam sessions were. Nobody got paid. We didn’t give a damn” he explained. “When they finished playing they’d go over in the corner and they had it on their thumb. I just snuck in the line and got me a little hit.”
Jones added how if he had not gotten injured he would have probably been strung out for the majority of his life. “The mistakes are what help you grow and learn,” he reminisced. “That was a big one. [If I hadn’t fallen.] I would have been in New York, where I was hanging out with [jazz musician] Charlie Parker. I would have been a junkie forever. Bird was always high. Thank God we did it and got it over with.”
The confession became even more fascinating when he detailed that he would buy his drugs in Harlem from a hustler named Detroit Red; the man who would later become Malcolm X.

PRACTICALLY SPEAKING: As any politician can attest, setting the stage is essential to an public appearance. While First Lady Melania Trump is once removed in terms of being an elected official, she made today’s visit to Cairo – the finale of a four African nation tour, a cinematic one with a visit to the Pyramids in Ginzi.
Her arrival in Egypt began with some of the ingredients of the standard airport meet-and-greet: Schoolchildren, her fellow First Lady Entissar al-Sisi and a red carpet. But what was the third of four diplomatic entrances this week bordered on silent, according to a press pool. No music played and “very tough security” kept a close eye. In addition, police manned rooftops as the motorcade made its way through the city streets. Although work weeks can reel into Cairo as many as 25 million people, traffic was not an issue, partially due to Saturday being a holiday, the pool said. Media types were advised to leave their electronic devices behind, when the caravan stopped at the presidential palace. There, Trump and Egypt President Abdul Fattah el-Sisi met behind closed doors for under an hour.
Today’s activities included paying a visit to officials at the U.S. Embassy

Another day and Azealia Banks is complaining. This time the enigmatic artist is blasting Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out for allegedly ambushing her with tasteless colorism jokes during a taping.
Banks claim she had been invited just to perform and wasn’t supposed to participate in the freestyle battle portion where feelings are known to get hurt.
Instead, Banks claims she got hit with the jig, particularly with jokes about her brown skin and being called ugly, which caused her to cry.
“They planned this – hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home. I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call “urban” pseudo comedic “FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day” greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred,” read part of her message on Instagram.
She added, “Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment.”

Not sure what rock Ted Nugent crawled from under this weekend, but once again he’s focusing his energy on the wrong things. In a recent sit-down on a syndicated conservative talk show, the right-wing rocker and gun rights nutball said the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida “have no soul.”
New York Daily News writes:
During an appearance on The Joe Pags Show, the Republican guitarist described the student gun reform advocates “as mushy brained children who have been fed lies.”
“They’re actually committing spiritual suicide because everything they recommend will cause more death and mayhem,” Nugent continued. “Guaranteed.”
Teen activists like David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez have drawn the ire of the far-right, with political commentators and government officials taking to the airwaves and social media to publicly lambaste them.
Nugent’s thin-skinned response to the peaceful protests led by the Parkland survivors and a nationwide call to examine gun rights sensibly has the conservative entertainer’s name trending on Twitter and catching blows in the process. We’ve collected some of our faves below and on the following pages.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg finally came out of hiding to address how his company allowed a shady election data firm, Cambridge Analytica, to misuse the personal data of 50 million Facebook users.
In a CNN interview with Laurie Segall, Zuckerberg said he is “really sorry that this happened”.
You think, Mark?
In the interview where he repeated from the sound of it carefully prepared statements, Zuckerberg pointed out that it’s Facebook’s “responsibility to make sure that it doesn’t happen again”. He also admitted that the tech giant made mistakes by allowing app developers way too much access to Facebook user data and trusting Cambridge Analytica and the other companies involved to delete the user data.
In response, the Facebook creator promised the company would conduct a “full forensic audit” to find out exactly which apps went too far and gained access to user data before tighter rules were implemented in 2014. As you can imagine folks on Capitol Hill want to have some words with Zuckerberg and he is open to the meeting. Zuckerberg said about talking to Congress “happy to if it’s the right thing to do,” but “what we try to do is send the person at Facebook who will have the most knowledge.”
Congress has made it very clear that person who has the most knowledge is him and they don’t want to talk to anyone else but him. Zuckerberg has been looking funny in the light after his fortune took a $ 9 billion dollar hit and shaved about 8.5 percent of his company’s stock during it’s tanking after the scandal broke.
Coincidence? We think not. Mark and Facebook better get it’s act together before the 2018 Mid-term elections we can’t afford anymore Russia meddling or more Trump liking politicians in office. Watch the Mark get totally awkward and say he’s sort of sorry below.
