While listening to the radio during my morning commute, I heard yet another commercial for “She Got Remy Weave, He Got Remy Bottlez: A Love Story” or whatever the hell those tragic Negro plays are called. Dismayed, I started to contemplate how in the blue fck are these plays still in business, but set aside the thought to concentrate on the chick who valiantly attempted to apply her Kiss On Nailz while standing up on a packed bus during rush hour (hint: she now has a full French set of…knuckles).
On lunch, I resumed my train of thought and Googled “Lawd + Love + Stageplay” and whaddaya know? There’s one man responsible for bringing most of these to light: Mr. David Talbert. Past hits have included “He Say She Say, But What Does God Say” and “Tellin It Like It Tiz”. Current and past stars on his roster include Morris Chestnut, Brian White, Coko from SWV, Lenny Williams (yes, that Lenny Williams) and your baby cousin ShayShay who think she too good to call you now.
There was no real point to this post. I just thought someone should know that at any given moment, someone could be prepared to give Clifton Powell a job, and if you know me, you know I can’t stand that man any more than Chris Brown can stand decorum.
