Jamie Foxx - Frank Erwin Center - April 28, 2007

Dude... what a great picture! LOL. Jamie Foxx @ Frank Erwin Center on April 28th. Get your tix here. What's Mr. Unpredictable gonna do?!?

I read this the other day Hip Hop Isn’t Dying, It Just Sucks... I thought it was an interesting read... what do you think?

More info:

Jamie Foxx (born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967) is an American actor, R&B singer, pianist, and comedian. Foxx won the 2004 Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in Ray, a biopic about the life of musician Ray Charles. As such, he is the third African-American in history to win the Academy Award for Best Actor.

He came to Los Angeles in the late 1980s to start a music career. He released an album in 1994, called Peep This and later sang the theme for Any Given Sunday. Even as he pursued a music career, Foxx did stand-up at comedy clubs, mostly on open-mic nights. On his name: "I wrote down all these unisex names at this comedy place because they would always choose the girls to go up... So I wrote down Stacy King, Tracy Brown, Jamie Foxx... And they picked Jamie Foxx. I stood up, had a great night and that's how the name stuck." In California, he won the 1991 Oakland Comedy Competition and then joined the cast of In Living Color, which at the time starred Keenen Ivory Wayans.
