Some things really come as a shocker–even to us–when it comes to the ongoings of the Web World. Much to our suprise, Signal23TV’s CEO/Executive Director and Content Creator, Henderson Maddox released a diss track against former About Him Web Stars, Brandon Karson, Rahim Brazil, Gary Lavard, Chris June, and Tripp Ali; in addition to former adult star turned mogul, Arquez, and former staff members, Davien Harlis and Kimberly Jones!

Henderson’s diss track is set to the tune of There For You from Fox’s hit series, Star. He first performed the song at The Signal23TV Awards Show this past Sunday while a video played with the aforementioned people in it. They were nominated for an award, Lost The Signal Award. A source close to the network states alleged reasons ranging from lying and big egos all the way up to stealing and inappropriate sexual contact with talent. Check out the post Henderson set on his Instagram account below:

We reached out to each of the individuals named above and Davien, Rahim, Chris, and Kimberly all declined to comment. However, Brandon, Gary, and Tripp have these statements:

Gary Lavard & Brandon Karson

“Personally, I thought it was pretty catchy. It was well written, and it showed that he’s still dealing with personal hardships as it pertains HIS decision to stop the series (“About Him”). This is obviously a cry for attention. At the end of the day, it saddens me to know that there’s so much strife and hate coming from such a “professional” production company. I chose not to speak on everything more so because I’m in such a different place in both the personal & professional avenues in my life. I pray that he finds the help that he needs, and I hope that this production company continues to put out some amazing adult content. Clearly, that’s the direction they’ve gone in, and it’s one of the main reasons I left in the first place.”

-Brandon Karson

“Thanks for the free press ☺️”
-Gary Lavard

Again, we are really quite shocked Henderson released something like this. We never pegged him to be a rapper, but we guess he had to express his anger and disappointment. We just hope somehow these factions of the Web World can come to some peace by agreeing to disagree. Henderson has stated he is done with the petty after this diss track, but the year is young and we will see! As always, HeyMikeyATL serves as the center of the Web World and our opinion is we don’t have one. We would love to hear yours though! Sound off in the comments’ section below.

Flash forward to this past Monday and the second season premiere; and not only have one of the series’ regulars been gunned down, but there is more mayhem, drama, and of course DANCE SEQUENCES! Yes this web series stands out in the Web World has being the only series incorporating dance and choreography, much in the same way the cast of Glee broke out in cover songs! This season premiere was the place to be as the event was attended by a few stars of the Web World including Ryan “Rah Rah” Kennedy (Living 4 The Weekend, LIT, House Boys), Lando King (Hurt, About Him: South Africa, Kingdom Heights), Toni Bryce (Twisted, Girls), Tramel Harris (G-Status ATL Hustle, The Corporate Mouth), Carl Levonzell (Twisted 2: Family Secrets, The Corporate Mouth) and our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning.

We have to say this was the best web series screening/event we have yet to attend; setting a new bar. There was food, drink, music, dance routines, and an impromptu dance competition that would put most ballroom “kidz” to shame! The Category was “Dance Realness” and they SERVED!

 

Grade: A+

What We Liked:

-The cast consisted of a slew of new actors we have never seen. FRESH MEAT!

-The cinematography, sound, and lighting were on point. A lot of thought was put into the details of this series.

-Seeing Rah Rah Kennedy! Anything he is in is always worth watching!

What We Loved:

Christopher Emerson

-THE DANCE SEQUENCES! No other web series is doing this. More so, they were completely on point. The choreography was fresh and new. We felt like we were watching a mainstream music video!

-Christopher Emerson is amazing! His dancing style is so smooth and it flows.

-The acting in the series was on point, you definitely need to binge watch the first season. Trust us you won’t regret it!

-Antonio Mincey’s message of horizontal networking/”reaching across the table” with people on your level to make bigger moves.

What We Hated:

-Absolutely NOTHING!
