    Charlamaine...This is great show. I'm happy to see you minus the antics of the Breakfast Club. You're a great interviewer

    This interview is GREAT! Especially for myself as a writer. That start from the bottom is key. I’m older and I’m going to do the steps necessary for me to make my dreams happen. Thanks for this.

    The streaming success of coming to America II was due to the anticipation based off of the 1st one.

    It’s hard to top Coming to America. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Some people like part two and some didn’t. I like it and I liked it better the more I watched it.

    I saw it twice. It was cute. Cute enough for my son who was 2yrs old at the time to watch.
    The first is still waaaaay better.
    I missed that edgy and raw R-rated version that we had back when it came out.
    When they announced that it was PG-13, a single year formed. lol.

    I think today is the premier day for intergalactic, so will be peepin it for sure. Always been a fan of Cudi's style and the preview I just watched is smack dab that. I stopped making new music before MOTM dropped, but I wish I stuck to it cause I think I would've worked with him, no joke. Peep my page, I only have 2 old songs up. I started using youtube so early that I didn't really know what to do with it so never built my channel. Kenya is dope. He reminds me of Deon Taylor, who I worked with on his first film (design and shooting the behind-the-scenes video and stills), similar, writer and director, who actually look kinda similar. Lol, I thought Black AF was about Deon initially. Anyway keep it up Kenya, Cudi, and CtG!

      1st Coming to America is a classic top tier Funny with great cameos and beyond EDGY. This new one couldve been rebranded to something else. Its was a smaller safer family film...and no laughs i could give for it.

    Kenya is correct. Success is given very early when you are not prepared. Sometimes so that you understand how it works and other times to discourage you and to show you’re not prepared.

    You don't get to celebrate your movie being the third most streamed when it's achieved off the back of its importance within the black community and broader comedy community. If it were a standalone film it would have tanked. I haven't seen the film but the previews alone were abysmal.

    • Miguel Panadero
      Miguel Panadero Před 3 měsíci +1

      It wasn't for storytelling. It was literally to continue getting a collective movement going and used the movie as an experiment and money flip to take another step. What y'all fail to realize is it's not about the touchdown it's about the fckn inches!

    Coming to America 2 was DECENT! Y’all set y’all expectations too high because of how classic the first one was, they followed the story, they brought make most of the original class, and tied it all together seamlessly. Stop the hate.

    yeah it wasnt a good movie, and Eric La Salle was right not to agree to do it. certainly not a classic. Eddie and Joh Landis have beef, thats the perosn that should have dont the movie beceuas ehe directed the 1st one and understands teh world and the characters. this was a mockery of the 1st film and Rick ross House for some reason, just didnt look good, to me i dont know if it was the way it was filmed but there was something off about the look of it

    1. Black people really need to create their OWN networks instead of always looking for non-Black people to HELP Y'ALL.
    2. PLEASE stop looking for "white people" to educate you. Educate yourselves and each other.
    3. Where is your originality and creativity? "Rebooting" movies and shows, that were GREAT in-their-own-right, is just lazy and lacking of vision.
    Avatar, Jurassic Park, etc. were films created by brilliant minds.
    WE have that same brilliance in our community. Please use it.
