Bill Cosby Appearing In Rap Video, Comedian Will Star In Memphis Jelks' 'The Cosby Dance'

Bill Cosby is hoping to get back in the good graces of pop culture, and his first job out of prison is a cameo in a rap video.

According to Radar Online, the 84-year-old comedian is making a cameo in rapper Memphis Jelks’ music video, dedicated to the man once dubbed “America’s Dad.”

The song is called The Cosby Dance, and the two will begin shooting in the next few months as long as Covid cooperates.

“They plan on starting production in (3) months but they’re trying to watch this resurgence of Covid and be responsible,” Radar is told.

“The greatest legacy one can pass down to their children and grandchildren is not money nor material goods, but a legacy of truth and facts.

They [media] removed The Cosby Show, A Different World, and many of my Honorary Degrees,” Cosby said in a statement to Radar.

When Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned Cosby’s sexual assault charges in June, they “restored those feelings and memories, when they vacated my conviction, due to the egregious violation of my constitutional rights.”

Cosby feels honored a rapper like Memphis Jelks would create a song solely based on him.

“Now, comes a prolific rapper, Memphis Jelks, who adds to the restoration of my legacy with a powerful new song called, ‘The Cosby Dance’ Hey, Hey, Hey — Far From Finished,” Cosby’s statement continued.

Memphis Jelks is all about Cosby, telling Radar, “I believe the upcoming generation can learn a lot about overcoming adversities by studying and applying the principles of Dr. Cosby’s educational and career choices that have helped lead to his enormous success.”

“What better way than a viral song and dance in which the lyrics celebrate some of the great attributes of one of the greatest American comedians of all time, who happens to be Black,” he added.

After Cosby’s release from prison, his rep Andrew Wyatt told Radar, Cosby is gearing up for a big television and stand-up comedy comeback.

But this though!

Jay-Z and Will Smith Make Investment to Help Turn Low-Income Renters into Home Owners

Jay-Z and Will Smith Make Investment to Help Turn Low-Income Renters into Home Owners

Yes, you heard that right. Two of the biggest rappers of all time Jay-Z and Will Smith are helping low-income renters to become homeowners.

Smith’s Dreamers VC and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation recently made investments into Landis Technologies, a firm that buys homes and rents them out to low-income earners who are working to be eligible for mortgages.

Smith and Jay-Z aren’t the only investors, though. They join Front, Instacart, Ethos, CashApp, Flatiron Health and Tango. Together, they have helped the firm to earn more than $165 million. Landis Technologies will use the donations to buy around 1,000 homes for low-income families.

Landis also wants to change the mindset of these low-income families. Its staff is also offering coaches that will school the renters on topics like improving credit scores, money management, and other crucial information that will help them to qualify for a mortgage.

The firm’s main goal is to turn 80% of its renters into homeowners within the next two years. Once they become eligible for a mortgage, they can buy back the home for a predetermined price up to two years after Landis initially bought the home.

According to Landis co-founder Cyril Berdugo, financial inclusion is crucial to the company. One aspect that he is very proud of is how they are creating wealth for Americans with low income. They basically make money only when their clients buy back a house. So, it’s in their best interest for clients to grow financially.

Cyril added that what makes the company unique is its ability to coach virtually anyone on how to become a homeowner. Now that Landis has received this significant new funding, he aims for the business to set a bigger number of Americans on the path to becoming homeowners.

The company plans to hire more talent across the country, expand to new states, and offer a better experience for everyone involved, from lenders to partner agents and clients.

This is a worthy investment from Will Smith and Jay-Z, and it’s one to pay attention to as it will improve the quality of life for a lot of people in the country.
