Tyler, The Creator Scores His Own Series On Viceland

Tyler returns to the small screen. Grab your popcorn. 

Viceland, the TV channel from VICE, has only been around for six months, but is making a huge splash on the cable scene.

The A&E-owned network recently revealed that they their latest programming venture is in conjunction with Tyler, The Creator. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 25-year-old rapper is in the works of developing a series based on show from his Golf Media App. The project is also fronted by Whalerock Industries, the same production company that created Kardashian's mobile empire.

Nick Weidenfeld, president of programming at Viceland, spoke on the company's stellar ascent, saying, “I’m so proud of the what we have accomplished in just a few months since launching but there is much more work to be done. Our job is to give a platform to as many diverse and powerful voices as we can.

The series, whose name has yet to be revealed, won't be Tyler's first foray in television. In 2012, the Los Angeles native and his Odd Future crew brought sketch comedy series Loiter Squad to Adult Swim, ending after three seasons.

"No other network creates all its own content and brings together such disparate but important people," Weidenfeld continued. "As we expand the talent pool, we’ll need to grow as a network, experimenting with genre and formats. There are no rules at Viceland, which makes it the most exciting place to work."

This definitely sounds like the perfect platform for Tyler's off-kilter, no holds barred point of view.

Jay-Z Praises Debut Of Jordan Peele's 'Us' Movie

As part of the celebratory activities that took place after the debut of Us, Jay-Z decided to partake in the words of felicitations and congratulated director Jordan Peele for another cinematic feat. On Sunday (March 24), Mr. Carter issued a statement on the achievement, as posted by Roc Nation's Twitter account.

"For US by US. Congrats on the #1 movie in the world," the "Moonlight" rapper said. In a past interaction, Peele said Jay-Z helped him to get over the notion of a sophomore slump when he worried about another stellar follow-up to Get Out. In an interview with MTV News, Peele remembered Jay-Z stating, "It doesn't matter, you already did that."

According to Variety, Us (MonkeyPaw Productions), raked in $70 million at the domestic box office last weekend (March 22). The horror film stars VIBE cover star Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o, Elizabeth Moss, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and more.

On the topic of featuring a black family at the center of this film, Peele said to VIBE that it'll open up new perspectives of what an African-American unit looks like onscreen. “To be able to normalize this idea of representation in film, we have to be ready to represent the spectrum of where we are as African-Americans," Peele said. "I hope it’s therapeutic to be able to see a black family buy a boat in a movie, to be able to play the good guy and the bad guy, and not have it be a movie that has to be about race. I think that’s good within our community, and it’s good for the outside communities to be able to see — don’t put us in boxes.”
