Pandora's Box: Waking Up With The Mistress Of The Morning, Angela Yee

Angela Yee has taken free speech to new heights on her Sirius XM show "The Morning After with Angela Yee." Born to an African American mother and a Chinese father, Angela has always been known to talk a lot. Growing up, her friends called her “The News.” If you ever needed to know anything, Ms.Yee was the person to ask. Now don’t get me wrong, Angela is not your typical gossip queen, this woman has majored in English at Wesleyan University and had goals of becoming a writer. But, in life you never know where you’re truly going to end up. On her ladder to success, Angela has worked for TVT, MTV, Wu-Tang management, clothing lines, and event planning. I believe that all of these personality driven occupations are a part of the reason why we now have this fearless, bold, but honest voice. I call her “The Pretty Truth.”

 

Mashonda: How did you get your start on satellite radio? How old were you?
Angela: I started 6 years ago, as Cipha Sounds co-host. It was really a test since I had never done radio before, and I can admit that I was pretty bad when I first started. I called Paul Rosenberg about an opening in the marketing department at Sirius, and he told me they were hiring a female for the morning show. He suggested I give it a shot. I really got thrown onto the show with no direction, but sometimes that's good because you can create your own path, which I feel like I did. I was pretty raw and untrained, which works on satellite.

For people that have never tuned into Lip Service - what can they expect to hear?
Just imagine a group of women, whether they are video vixens, models, porn stars, artists, etc who get to discuss anything we want to talk about. Our listeners get to eavesdrop on the conversations that women have, and then when we have male guests on the show we grill them about the intimate details of their life— first love, favorite positions, and anything else with no holds barred.

Do you find that guys are a little scared to ask you out in fear of you embarrassing them? 
Definitely, I've had several guys who are nervous to even be friends with me because they feel like my job means I'm going to put their business out there. Like, if you ask me out I'm going to talk about it on my show and we'll all laugh at you. Part of my job is to make sure that people are comfortable and trust me, and I don't ever want to embarrass anyone. On another note, guys are often also distracted by all the beautiful women I know and would often rather use me as a friend to get to them.  

How do your parents feel about what you do, do they condone it?

Murderer Of Morgan Freeman's Granddaughter Sentenced To 20 Years

Morgan Freeman's step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines is finally getting justice. Lamar Davenport, the man who killed Hines in 2015, has reportedly been sentenced to 20 years in prison, the Manhattan D.A. Cyrus R. Vance Jr. confirms.

Davenport's sentencing was mandated on Thursday (Jan. 17). He was convicted of manslaughter in May 2018. As previously reported, Davenport – who was dating Hines at the time – reportedly killed her in Aug. 2015 outside of their New York City apartment. Witnesses claimed that he repeatedly stabbed her as yelled out comments about religion.  E'Dena was 33.

Davenport was acquitted of second-degree murder after his lawyer argued that he was high on PCP at the time of the murder. A judge ultimately found him guilty of first-degree manslaughter however.

After he's released from prison, Davenport will reportedly be placed under post-release supervision for five years.

Tyga is clapping back at Soulja Boy after he claimed that he had a bigger comeback than the Young Money artist in 2018. Tyga dropped some receipts on Twitter on Thursday (Jan. 17), proving that his bounce-back was far more superior than Soulja's.

Despite the clear evidence, Soulja Boy insisted that he was still the "comeback king" of last year due to his other business ventures. "I HAD THE BIGGEST COMEBACK OF 2018," he wrote. "I RELEASED MY OWN VIDEO GAME CONSOLE IM THE FIRST RAPPER IN HISTORY TO DO SO!"

As previously reported, Soulja first made the declaration during his interview on The Breakfast Club on Jan. 16. Meek Mill, Tory Lanez, and Lil Yachty previously defended Tyga against Soulja's remarks. Additionally, Soulja took shots at Drake, Kanye West, and the Migos for influencing their musical style.

DAWN Relishes In Self-love On New Song "Sauce"

DAWN is back with a sexy single off her forthcoming project, New Breed. "Sauce" is a sonic ode to pleasing all her hedonistic sexual desires after a long work week. Lyrically, the song is filled with suggestive lines and clever double-entendres that are far from coy when describing what she wants in the sack.

Just as much as “Sauce” is about sex, it’s also about basking in self-pleasure that comes after genuine self-love. In a statement published by Stereogum, the former Danity Kane member described the message behind the song:

“‘Sauce" is about women taking pride in their prowess, and about being raised to celebrate my skin,” DAWN said. “I lost focus of that when so many men degraded and disrespected my brown skin. ‘Sauce’ is about being bathed in your own beauty, being sexy for you. The new breed of women are unapologetic about sex and the way they choosing to express themselves.”

DAWN recently joined Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex of Danity Kane for the DK3 reunion tour across the U.S. In an interview with Billboard, the Louisiana native revealed she wants to give fans more of her authentic self on New Breed.

“This album is my relationship with New Orleans, me as a woman, and how being from New Orleans has created a person in me that acts and sees things a certain way. "'Jealousy'" is a prime example of that,” she said. “I just want to give you the girl from the 9th Ward that you guys only met once on [MTV's] Making The Band.”

Listen to "Sauce" below. New Breed drops on Jan, 25.
