10 Things We Want To See In 'The Boondocks' Season 4

If you have been living under a rock or stuck watching cable TV, you might've missed Adult Swim's announcement that The Boondocks will be back for another season. The wildly inventive show, created by Aaron McGruder and starring Regina King and John "Pops" Witherspoon, has incited controversy and invited praise at the same damn time. Many have always felt that it was just a matter of time that Huey, Riley and Grandad Freeman would be kicking arse and taking names.

We don't know what to expect from one of the game's most notorious series, but that doesn't mean we can't use our imagination. With that in mind, here goes our 10 Things We'd Want To See In The Boondocks Season 4.

Click below to begin!

10. Lovely Ebony Brown Pt. II

Grandad should get another chance at being the ultimate mac-a-roni. Season 4 could be the perfect opportunity to let the old man get another shot with the woman of his dreams. He'll need a strong back-boned sista to stand beside him during all the insanity that will hit the peaceful suburb of Woodcrest.

9. Riley vs. Dontrevius Wenters

When the NBA lockout hit what was there to do? Watch Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith have a tête à tête? Pop in some old VHS and relive the days of yore? Play NBA 2K12 for a few hours? If you live in Woodcrest and you have skills that check ninjas and the whole nine, then you have no choice but to issue an one-on-one challenge to a Knicks legend. It would be a day to remember as Woodcrest's "mightiest deer" takes on your favorite almost Knickerbocker in an epic match for a championship.

8. The Rise of The Digital Age 3.0

Huey goes revolutionary as he gets another chance to challenge the system. After the digi-wars in Egypt, the United States looks to take a page out of President Mubarak's playbook and implement similar measures in the Land of the Free. We can only imagine what would be waiting for Huey, as he would attempt to stop a SkyNet-esque corporation from getting off the ground.

7. The Return of R. Kelly

Season 4 could be the perfect chance to catch up with the Pied Piper of R&B! He's quietly dropped some new material, even striking with a hit on radio, and there's no doubt the music has passed by Aaron McGruder's ears! We wonder what Huey and Riley would think of the new, improved Robert Kelly?! Thankfully, we'll get a chance to see something soon!

6. The Whitney Houston Funeral

Aaron McGruder is no stranger to pushing buttons. He famously imagined what life would be like if Martin Luther King, Jr. survived his assassination to see how his life's work affected Black America. Tackling the subject of Whitney Houston and her battle with drugs would do well to ease the tension created by her passing. It could also create a discussion about our generations coping with the lost of such star-studded talent. Think of it as the obligatory after-school special episode on The Boondocks Season 4 DVD.

5. Same-Sex Marriages

Vice President Joe Biden fired the first shot, but President Obama delivered the bomb heard around the globe when made his position known about same-sex marriage in America. In the words of Jon Stewart, "BOOM!" The meat on that bone is so juicy, you can say it's breast meat! Given The Boondocks' glossary of the subject, we can expect a non-Glee approach at having that "important" talk with the kids.

4. More Fight Scenes

We all love them and it's become a staple in a few memorable episodes of the series. In Season 4, McGruder and company and go so many different ways. Huey and Riley avenging the death of Grand Masta Bushido Brown; a rematch between Uncle Ruckus and Huey; or how about Granddad and Thugnificent backyard brawl? Make sure the music is dope and the cut-scenes are crisp and on point, as The Boondocks should surely add some classic battles to their next effort.

3. The Search For Dave Chappelle

The Freeman Family accompany Tom and his family to Africa, where the boys attempt to find out what happened to their favorite comedian. Our hope would be that Aaron could get @ChappelleDavidK to voice himself in the episode that would go into his abrupt trip to South Africa, his thoughts on the third season and other topics.

2. The Fall of Trayvon Martin

For 46 days the world collectively held watch as the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin gripped us all. The Boondocks can create a spectacular episode dealing with the controversial assault on a young, Black male. It would be provocative, fiery and sure to be a conversation starter at everyone's dinner table. Huey and Riley could offer point/counterpoint deliberations to challenge the claims of Zimmerman as The Boondocks takes us through "The Fall of Trayvon Martin". Extra kudos would be offered if they could get Bill Duke and Rev. Rollo Goodlove to feature in it, too!

1. The 2012 Presidential Elections

President Obama and Mitt Romney are already sending shots at each other, so what's one more bullet in the chamber, right?! Although neither Huey and Riley are old enough to vote, they can help Granddad make the best informed decision while questioning certain loopholes in America's constitution. With so much socio-political rhetoric being thrown around, The Boondocks Season 4 could be just the "fair and balanced" show to keep cutting-edge humor alive and well for the 21st Century.

John Boyega Launches Record Label To Oversee Soundtrack For Upcoming Movie

Great things are coming from John Boyega. According to Deadline, the actor will be executive producing a crime-thriller God Is Good alongside Josephine Rose (who was an executive producer for Slaughterhouse Rulez), a vein of Prisoners and City Of God as described by the movie's producers. While overseeing the film's major and minor details, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor has decided to open a record label dedicated to supervising the movie's soundtrack.

Boyega's newly founded record label is called UpperRoom Records. Tasked with more than overseeing the picture's tracklist, the label is expected to deliver emerging African artists like YoungstaCPT, who is set to feature on the project. The record label's team will include VP of Production, Yara Shaikh, and Stefan Wade, Head of A&R.

“I’m thrilled to be teaming once again with Josephine Rose on such a powerful and important story that explores themes of fathers and fatherhood, toxic masculinity, race and faith in a community that has become trapped in an unending cycle of violence and racial oppression, and where sometimes it seems for men that violence is the only way of achieving power," the 26-year-old said.

Champion: Meek Mill To Perform As Musical Guest On 'SNL'

2019 is off to a great start for Meek Mill. The Philly MC is set to appear as a musical guest on the Jan. 26th episode of Saturday Night Live. This marks the Championships musician’s first time appearing on the comedy series, and his episode will be hosted by James McAvoy.

Naturally, Meek will likely perform some songs from his album Championships, which hit number one in its first week on the charts. Meek commented on the exciting news by using several trophy and fire emojis on Twitter.

"The set earned 229,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Dec. 6, according to Nielsen Music,” reports Billboard of the smash LP. “Of that sum, 42,000 were in traditional album sales. The album was released on Nov. 30 via Maybach/Atlantic Records and is the hip-hop artist’s second chart-topper, following 2015’s Dreams Worth More Than Money."

There’s been no shortage of Meek on the scene since April, when he was released early from prison on parole violations. Not only has he been working hard musically, he’s also continued his crusade on prison reform by appearing on podcasts, television shows and more to discuss the important topic.
