Popular hip-hop star A$AP Ferg sought to find a way to help the folks in his hometown, Harlem, New York, with the COVID-19 pandemic. Ferg found out that one of his favorite restaurants, Melba’s of Harlem, was helping to feed people, so he reached out to owner Melba Wilson to ask how he could help.

Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba’s police drama, “LA’s Finest,” has been picked up by Fox. The show aired its first season as a Spectrum Original last year, with Season Two set to premiere in June. It will air on Fox this fall on Monday nights at 8 p.m. Meanwhile. Gabrielle, whose husband Dwayne Wade is worth $120 million, says many Black entertainers are struggling to pay bills amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Said the Being Mary Jane star: “For all of the Oprah Winfreys and the people who have just a lot, a lot, a lot of money, most of us are one or two checks away from not having money to pay for all of our things.”……
