Jamie Foxx To Play Black Panther Geronimo Pratt In Johnnie Cochran Biopic.

Jamie Foxx will be playing the role of Black Panther Geronimo Pratt in the upcoming Johnnie Cochran biopic. According to Complex, Pratt, who was Tupac Shakur’s godfather, served 27 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. He was freed from prison in 1997 when his conviction was vacated on the grounds that the prosecution had concealed evidence. Cochran worked to overturn Pratt’s conviction and help him settle a false imprisonment lawsuit for $4.5 million. He was also targeted by the F.B.I.’s COINTELPRO for his activism and involvement with the Black Panther Party. The movie, which is titled Signal Hill, will hit theaters in 2018.

Nick Cannon Is Done With Instagram.

Nick Cannon has admitted that he was addicted to Instagram and had to reevaluate how poorly he managed his time because of the app. According to The Shade Room, Cannon said during an interview, “I wasn’t making no money from Instagram. Instagram is making all this money, all these billions… They’re making so much money and we’re just offering our personal lives up.” He added, “Every time we put a picture up, they own it. So I started getting in depth and said I don’t want to put anything personal on Instagram. I put business stuff up there, but my personal stuff should be left for me.”
