112 Has a New Album and a Week!

Twenty years ago, Diddy introduced a hot new R&B act with the vocal ability to dominate rhythm and blues while simultaneously complimenting hip hop. The group consisted of Quinnes 'Q' Parker, Michael Keith, Marvin “Slim” Scandrick and Daron Jones also known as 112. The group’s first single “Only You” featuring the late great Biggie Smalls was the perfect introduction to solidify the groups ascension into R&B royalty and they followed up with hit after hit for years to come. Now after eleven years with no studio album and six years of touring, 112 has a brand new album titled, “Q Mike Slim Daron”. The heavily anticipated album is being celebrated with a 112 Takeover week in the group’s hometown of Atlanta, GA.
112 community fest flyer 2112 Takeover Week kicks off with the below lineup: 
  • Monday, October 23rd press conference, 
  • Tuesday, the guys will be hosting a private listening session for music tastemakers and colleagues.
  • Thursday they'll host an exclusive Magic Master Class focused on music with the students at South Atlanta high school.  
  • Later on Thursday, 112 will celebrate the new project with a cover and album release party at Club Alibi. 
  • Friday, October 25th marks the official physical and digital album release, making the new album available worldwide. 
  • The takeover week culminates in a FREE city wide community fair and concert at South Atlanta High School that is open to the public. The fair will provide vendor booths, family friendly activities and food trucks, additional performances by local acts with a close-out performance by 112
  • The week ends on Sunday with a celebratory brunch and soul session later that night at Opium.
“It’s a blessing to be able to come back after almost twelve years to fans that are excited to hear new music. This new album is a more personal look into our lives and of course 112 started in southwest Atlanta so we thought what better way to kick this off than with the community that supported us,” Daron says. “We are looking forward to sharing this new album with home first and then of course connecting with fans across the country,” Slim explains.

“Q Mike Slim Daron” is the first release for the group after an eleven-year hiatus but all four members have had the opportunity to work on personal projects and endeavors over the past years. “I think that’s what makes this so special coming back after we’ve all done our own thing and had different levels of success but, we all realize that the true magic is with the four of us together,” Q says.

COMEDIAN, TV & RADIO PERSONALITY RICKEY SMILEY SET TO RELEASE DEBUT BOOK "STAND BY YOUR TRUTH: And Then Run for Your Life! "


New Memoir Available October 24, 2017 via Gallery Books
Every morning, over 4 million Americans listen to the hilarious Rickey Smiley on
"The Rickey Smiley Morning Show." But for the first time Rickey is ready to talk about the real truths beneath the rapid-fire jokes – and he’s standing by everything he says.

Visit a church, comedy club, college campus, or barber shop, and it’s not easy to find people who aren’t familiar with, or lifelong fans of, Rickey Smiley and his outrageous morning show radio crew. As the host of the huge nationally syndicated The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, which draws in at least 4 million listeners every day, he’s also the star of his hit TV show Rickey Smiley for Real – one of the only reality show series to address life as a single dad. Plushe has 8 chart-topping comedy albums.
 
But Rickey’s always had something more offer — and it’s more revealing than anything he’s done so far. STAND BY YOUR TRUTH: And Then Run for Your Life! (Gallery Books; Hardcover; October 24, 2017) is part memoir, part testimonial, and part life guide – mixing Rickey’s down-home humor with values learned from three generations of elders, the Baptist church, and some of the most celebrated mentors in entertainment (aka Steve Harvey).

Written as much for parents as it is for their young adults, STAND BY YOUR TRUTH offers tough-love conviction, both in turns funny and earnest, on straight talk such as:

  • How it’s impossible to come back from mistakes without self-forgiveness
  • Why “The Deadbeat Dad” is a myth
  • How to break out of that comfort zone — because you are not a chicken
  • The often untold ups and downs raising kids (and teenagers) as a single father
  • Proof success can only happen when opportunity meets long preparation
  • Ways speaking up for yourself is nothing to be ashamed of, so “Handle Your Business”
  • Why, now more than ever, our lives depend on what we stand for — and then sticking by it

In a time when we are craving world-wise humor as much as insight, STAND BY YOUR TRUTH by the one and only Rickey Smiley is here to deliver on both.

BOBBI KRISTINA PREMIERES #1 ON TV ONE'S NETWORK'S ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERE



The premiere of TV One's original film, Bobbi Kristina, premiered at #1  in the Sunday 7pm-9pm timeslot. The film now ranks as TV One's third most watched original movie premiere ever, across all key demos. The three airings of Bobbi Kristina on premiere night had a combined reach of 2.2 Million Unique Viewers. TV One will air an encore presentation of the highly anticipated film tonight, October 11 at 10 p.m. ET.

Beginning immediately after the passing of her mother, this poignant story delves into Bobbi Kristina's struggle to come to terms with Houston's sudden departure and the complexities of her own life. Starring breakout Joy Rovaris in the title role, Bobbi Kristina presents the first three-dimensional look at a story - and a life - that deserve better.  In 2012, Whitney Houston's tragic demise put her entire family in the worldwide media spotlight, with most of the glare falling on her grieving daughter, Bobbi Kristina. Krissi became one of the main characters in the story of Houston's death and its devastating aftermath as she struggled with her grief, her personal relationships, upholding her mother's legacy and her plans for the future. Bobbi Kristinaoffers a rare glimpse into the world of this young woman whose brief life and untimely end remain shrouded in mystery.


Opposite Rovaris, Bobbi Kristina stars Demetria McKinney who delivers an uncanny performance as she embodies the heart, flair and essence of the legendary Whitney Houston. The film also stars Nadji Jeter as Nick Gordon, Hassan Johnson as Bobby Brown, and Vivica A. Fox as Pat Houston. Le'Azionna Braden makes her screen debut as young Bobbi Kristina.

The film is directed by Ty Hodges, with screenplay by Rhonda Baraka.  Executive Producers Tracey Baker Simmons and Wanda Shelley, creators of the docu-series' "Being Bobby Brown" and "The Houstons," developed the underlying story.

Bobbi Kristina is produced for TV One by Eric Tomosunas (executive producer), Keith Neal and James Seppelfrick of Swirl Films. Casting was provided by Leah Daniels Butler. For TV One, Donyell McCullough is Senior Director of Talent & Casting; Robyn Greene-Arrington is VP of Original Programming and Executive in Charge of Production, and D'Angela Proctor is Head of Original Programming and Production.
