The time could not come fast enough since we last took notice of the dramatic finale in Season 3 of the STARZ hit series Power. Hold onto your hats ladies and gents because summer is right around the corner and we are narrowing in on the premiere date of Season 4.
Last backtrack, shall we? When we last saw James “Ghost” St. Patrick, he was handcuffed and on his way to prison, with special thanks to his then girlfriend and U.S. DOA, Angela Valdez. Simultaneously, we witness Ghost’s son, Tariq, being kidnapped by rival Kanan. On the receiving end, Tasha, the estranged wife of Ghost opens a picture of her son being held captive. To make matters worse, Ghost’s best friend and business partner, Tommy was conspiring to traffic drugs through Ghost’s nightclub (Truth) without his knowledge. Okay, are we all on the same page here now?

Chance also had a huge cake to bring in his 24th birthday. The cake was designed to look like a Harold’s Chicken Shack bucket with a strawberry Mistic alongside it.

Many people were introduced to the late Charlie Murphy via comedian Dave Chappelle’s comedy sketch show. Murphy and Chappelle gave fans many funny, memorable moments. Chappelle paid homage to Murphy at John Mayer’s concert by sharing that everyone in comedy was hurting.
Dave Chappelle Honors Charlie Murphy:
Dave Chappelle honored his friend and Chappelle Show cast member Charlie Murphy while making a surprise appearance at a John Mayer concert in Columbus, Ohio Wednesday. While welcoming Mayer to the Midwest, Chappelle and Mayer joked about their friendship and how they often hang out late. Telling John that he was a sight for sore eyes because he learned some heartbreaking news about the late Charlie Murphy. Referring to one of Mayer’s previous performances, he asked that the lights be sexier as Mayer began to play a song entitled, You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me.
Today, I got some terrible news, Chappelle said. My good friend, Charlie Murphy, passed away this morning, and everybody in comedy is heartbroken.
The comedian and Mayer reminisced about Murphy’s legendary “True Hollywood Stories” sketches on Chappelle’s Show. Dave shared how he originally asked Prince to participate in that sketch and he adamantly told Dave “No”. Later, Chappelle revealed that Prince wished that he had participated in the skit. They both shared how they loved Murphy’s phrase about Rick James as Charlie called him a “habitual line stepper”.
John, if you would, there was a night, maybe four months ago, where we were at Hotel Café in LA,” he said. “You were doing a show for 120 people. You went to the piano and you sang this song, and the song you sang that night reminded me of my friend, Charlie Murphy
As Mayer beautifully played, Chappelle shared that the world loved Charlie Murphy’s comedy, his stories, and his spirit. Asking the audience to put away their phones, Chappelle aspired to have the audience store a memory in their mind and not their phone. Of course, someone captured the moment on their phone and it was beautiful.
Famous in his own right, Charlie Murphy was the older brother of the legendary Eddie Murphy. He passed away on Wednesday in New York City at the young age of 57 after a battle with leukemia. A battle that Murphy withheld as many people did not know that he was suffering from cancer.
Prior to his stand out performance on Chappelle’s Show, Murphy worked as a stand-up comedian and acted in many movies such as CB4, Lottery Ticket, Player’s Club, Spike Lee’s Mo’ Better Blues and Jungle Fever. In working with his brother, he co-wrote Vampire in Brooklyn and 2007’s Norbit. After Chappelle’s Show, Murphy continued to tour and was slated to appear in the upcoming season of ” Power”.
Rest in peace, Charlie Murphy. You were so loved by many.

Whether you know him as “Wink” from back in the days, a businessman, We R One, balling on the courts or in high spirits; we have all seen happier days for the Ex-NBA superstar Steve Francis.
Here recently, he admitted to 1 count of driving while intoxicated stemming from a crazy Nov. 2016 arrest … but he ain’t going back to the slammer.
Francis appeared in a Houston courtroom Tuesday and pled guilty to the misdemeanor DWI charge. In exchange, he was ordered 3 nights in jail — but the judge gave him credit for time served so he won’t be returning.
He was also fined $1,000 and his driver’s license has been suspended for up to 1 year.
As we previously reported, Francis was initially pulled over in a black Chevy Tahoe for speeding — but during the stop, the cop noticed he reeked of booze. Francis was also verbally abusive and allegedly vowed REVENGE on the arresting officers.
Cops say they found weed — but that charge was dropped. Hey, it’s Houston!
What many don’t know about the ex-Baller is that he suffers from vertigo. Maybe this is setback will be a major comeback for DMV’s own.
Hopefully, Steve will get back to normal in no time, creating those Sparkle Moments!
Charlie Murphy Hid Illness Secret from ‘Power’ Cast and Crew
CHARLIE MURPHY KEPT CANCER FROM ‘POWER’ CASTMATES
4/12/2017 11:56 AM PDT
There is much to be said about television personality and brother of comedian Eddie Murphy. One thing that was a mystery to all is his battle with Leukemia. Charlie Murphy kept his battle with leukemia so private, most people who worked with him on “Power” had no idea he was sick.
Show producers — which stars 50 Cent — said they had no idea Charlie was dealing with cancer. We’re told he never told anybody on set and put in the work like everybody else.
Charlie played a prison guard named Marshal Williams on the show.
Family sources tell us Charlie only disclosed his cancer battle to very close friends and family members. It is said that he didn’t want his illness to define him.
Allegedly there were some family members who knew he was struggling but were shocked when he died … they didn’t know the situation was that desperate.
A rep Starz, where the show airs tells us, “Starz sends our deepest condolences to Charlie’s family and friends. He joined ‘Power’ for our upcoming season, and his talent shines in every scene. We were fortunate to have worked with him.”
At the opening ceremonies of the 2016 International AIDS Conference, the actress, who founded the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project in 2007, asked the audience why so many people are still infected with HIV each year — and why so many still die of AIDS-related causes.
“The truth is, we have every tool we need to prevent the spread of HIV: condoms, PrEP, PEP, ART [antiretroviral therapy], awareness, education,” Theron said. “And yet 2.1 million people — 150,000 of them children — were infected with HIV last year. In South Africa alone, 180,000 people died of AIDS last year.” Theron’s figures align with those from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, or UNAIDS.
“The real reason we haven’t beaten this epidemic boils down to one simple fact: We value some lives more than others,” Theron said. “We value men more than women. Straight love more than gay love. White skin more than black skin. The rich more than the poor. And adults more than adolescents.”
“I know this because AIDS does not discriminate on its own,” Theron continued. “It has no biological preference for black bodies, for women’s bodies, for gay bodies, for youth or the poor. It doesn’t single out the vulnerable, the oppressed or the abused.
“We ignore them,” she said. “We let them suffer, and then we let them die.”
Glad to see celebrities using their influence on social issues such as this one.
