Joe La Puma already has accolades and trophies and sneakers… lots of sneakers… lots of sneakers you can’t get, in fact. But offering laurels is an exercise in redundancy. Everyone already knows about his cover stories on Cudi, Bieber, A$AP, Jeremy Scott, Rozay, and Katy Perry

Joe La Puma already has accolades and trophies and sneakers… lots of sneakers… lots of sneakers you can’t get, in fact. But offering laurels is an exercise in redundancy. Everyone already knows about his cover stories on Cudi, Bieber, A$AP, Jeremy Scott, Rozay, and Katy Perry. Everyone already knows how he helped turn Complex Media into a big-time digital content player. And everyone already knows, we don’t f-ck with you musically.

Fueled by an appreciation for 50 Cent, La Puma constructed a grade-A career in media. In many ways, his story supports the thesis of The Tanning of America: One Nation Under Hip Hop. VH1′s latest Rock Doc insists that “hip hop changed us” so we asked La Puma where he stands on the matter.

Airing February 24-27 at 10pm each night, The Tanning of America explores how hip hop has dramatically changed American culture so that a career like La Puma’s is now possible.

To get your mind right for next week’s premiere, we asked five more media pros to break down the science behind hip hop’s impact on their life. Check back on Monday  to hear from So Let’s Talk About’s Rafi D’Angelo and Hot 97′s Miss Info.

Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s last wishes are granted, Jada Pinkett Smith takes on a dark role, and we get to see what could’ve went down in Frozen. Wendell Pierce, from The Wire and Treme fame, is set for a recurring role during the next season of Showtime’s Ray Donovan.

Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s last wishes are granted, Jada Pinkett Smith takes on a dark role, and we get to see what could’ve went down in Frozen.

  • Wendell Pierce, from The Wire and Treme fame, is set for a recurring role during the next season of Showtime’s Ray Donovan. We have no doubt he can hold his own against Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight, especially since he rocked during one of our Very VH1 Spreecasts! [Showtime]
  • Details of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s will have been released, with his partner, Mimi O’Donnell, in charge of his estate. The actor also stated his wishes for his son to only live near either New York City, Chicago, or San Francisco, so that he’s culturally enriched. With that, we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw little Cooper Hoffman become just as accomplished as his dad. [Huffington Post]
  • Jada Pinkett Smith will be playing a villain on Fox’s upcoming Batman-themed series, Gotham. And it looks like her character will be one of the influences that made the Penguin go crazy. [The A.V. Club]
  • Now that we’ve all fallen in love with Frozen, we get to see an exclusive deleted scene from the animated movie. Just know that things could have turned out completely different. [MTV News]
