The Ave Podcast – The 30th Anniversary of Coming To America

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 51: The 30th Anniversary of Coming To America

In the spirit of #FlashbackFriday, we take it all the way back to 1988 where we celebrate and pay tribute, to one of the most successful movies in pop-black culture. Thirty years ago today, Paramount Pictures, Eddie Murphy, and Director John Landis released Coming To America, a movie about an African prince from the country of Zamunda (fictional, obviously) who travels to Queens, NY in an attempt to find his Queen. We discuss Eddie Murphy’s genius, his career arc that dominated the 80s, the star-studded cast that was in the movie, the pop-black cultural similarities between ’88 & ’18, our favorite scenes and moments, plus a whole lot more. Oh! What a feeling…..

The Ave Podcast – 2018 NBA Free Agency Predictions x Draft Lottery x Nasir

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 50: 2018 NBA Free Agency Predictions x Draft Lottery x Nasir

Today on The Ave Podcast, we break down the most important players of the 2018 NBA Offseason. I invite Julian aka Jules Da Commish to help provide the predictions on where LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard*, and the remaining important figures of the NBA Free Agency will end up. Plus we discuss the NBA draft, and share some quick thoughts on Nas’ latest album, “Nasir”.

*Yes….I understand Kawhi isn’t a free agent until 2019, but the way he’s wielding his leverage around, it sure as hell feels that way. Don’t you agree?

The Ave Podcast – ‘Ye…This Is America

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 48: ‘Ye…This Is America

Today on The Ave Podcast, I’m joined by Shawn Adonis (past contributor to South Shore Ave) as we discuss the latest events regarding Kanye West. We break down his love for Donald Trump, his recent behaviour, the song “Ye vs The People”, and his outlandish TMZ interview. Somehow, some way, we circle back and tie it in to Childish Gambino’s epic “This Is America” video, showing how it all contrasts and relates to one another. What a week for the culture. Please enjoy…..
