The world of web stars and web series changes quicker than Atlanta weather! One day we are happy to announce there is new web series to debut or a new web star to meet, and then on other days a web star is announcing his departure.

This time, unfortunately, it is the latter as Tripp Ali, host of The Plug and star of Tex Brown, has announced he and Signal 23 Tv are parting ways!

The news of Tripp’s departure was made known via an ominous Instagram post where he announced that today he was parting ways with Signal 23 TV.

A post shared by Tripp Ali (@iamtrippali) on

His departure from the network comes as a surprise to many as his show has undoubtedly been one of the network’s biggest successes due to its content, grit, and the combined talent of Tripp Ali and Henderson Maddox. In recent months Mr. Ali he had even become of the faces, alongside Gary Lavard and Lando King, of the network and a highly anticipated tour, The Kings of Stream, has been in the works.

Naturally, we had to get a more in depth from Tripp about his departure. He sent this response:

Tripp Ali

I am an entertainer and when my craft is no longer respected or honored I need to move on. Entertainers must always be true to their craft and never allow themselves to be placed in an unfair contract or situation that goes beyond the realm of professionalism and decency. Continue to sign on to “The Plug” @ worldstarhitradio.com and I will updates on my next role.

We definitely wish Tripp the best in his future endeavors, but at the same time we hate to see Tex Brown end. The series may just be released in a similar fashion to About Justin upon Rico Pruitt’s departure earlier this year.  This has been quite the week for Mr. Ali, as you recall he announced he would be the sole host of The Plug after Brandon Karson’s allegedly abrupt departure. We reached out to Signal 23 TV, but at the time this post went live we had not received a response. What are your thoughts on Tripp Ali’s departure? Sound off in the comments section below!

    Signal 23 is a joke. Tripp Ali was a decent actor who deserved a better production team. Now he’s replaced with porn star Kash Dinero. That’s what Signal 23 wanted all along– Porn Stars. Instead of tricking up & coming actors with gratuitous sex scenes, they should have been hiring porn stars from jump.

Chasing Shade? “G-Status ATL Hustle” Creator Speaks on “Chasing Atlanta” (@ChasingRLTY) Beef!

We have to admit these web reality series are amusing. There are a few that have definitely come up on radar in the last year–Chasing Atlanta, The Come Up ATL, and The G-Status ATL Hustle! The first and latter, however,  seem ready to collide after an interview on our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning’s popular radio show, The Hey Mikey Show. Last night’s show centered on the cast of The G-Status ATL Hustle as they built up to their series premiere set to air tonight on YouTube. However, a few comments made by series creator and director, Jah Jah Katai, seem to have been perceived as shady by a few Chasing Atlanta cast members.

These aforementioned comments took place on cast member, Sherrod Willis’ Instagram Live feed and it seems some the “kidz” aren’t having it. Check out Jah Jah’s comments below (Swipe left) and a few comments from left on the post:

Shady? We don’t have an opinion. However, Mikey reached out to Jah earlier today for a statement and he had this to say, “Didn’t say their [Chasing Atlanta] name. A hit dog will holler. That’s it from me, but thank you again.”

You can listen to last night’s airing of The Hey Mikey Show by clicking here. All we can say is that we will be tuning into the premiere of The G-Status ATL Hustle where you will see Mikey make a guest appearance and we will be at Truth nightclub tonight for a special screening. If you’re in the metro Atlanta area come out, come dressed, and be prepared to be BLOGGED about!

Summer is young, Atlanta is sizzling, and The Web World continues to grow! For months now we have been teasing and talking about Rahim Brazil’s Twisted highly anticipated second series, Twisted 2: Family Secrets, and now we have the first official trailer for you to see!

When we last saw the characters of Twisted mayhem had ensued resulting in death, termination–oh and incarceration! Twisted 2: Family Secrets picks up where the chaos left off. Our motley crew seems to be trying to move on with their lives without the clinic, but that does not mean there’s no drama involved. In fact, from what we can tell from the trailer, the drama and chaos are only going to increase! Indeed this trailer shows that this second season will be edgier, darker, and pushing boundaries we may have not have seen for a while in a web series.

As you can see Martel Star, November, Chris June, Siren, Robert Brown, and Toni Bryce reprise their roles of Nick, Duke, Marcus, Star, Robert, and Vanessa, respectively. These new faces, are relatively new to the Web World, most of them we recognize from Twisted outings or behind the scenes. Of the new faces we are excited to see include Marcus Jones, celebrity hairstylist & make up artist (he can do a lot more, but we cannot fill up this article with his accolades–GOOGLE HIM); Ebony Shinelle, a rising publicist in Atlanta who has her eyes and thumb print on a number of Web Stars and local rappers. Most of all, however, we are happy to see Rahim back in front of the camera! We wonder where his character fits in the grand scheme of things.

We have to say this has truly made our day. It is so good to see growth and as you know we sometimes have an affinity for the “darker” side of things at HeyMikeyATL. Still there are so many questions–How is Vanessa going to make ends meet? Does Marcus really have the balls to kill someone? Who is the light skinned vixen that has caught Star’s eye? You all just be sure to check back here for more updates on Twisted 2: Family Secrets! Happy viewing!

Memorial Day is gone, but that does not mean the fun is over. Apparently there is a new web reality series on the scene and it is all the rave! The G-Status Atlanta Hustle is it name and the Black gayfamous of Atlanta are taking center stage in this new series!

Normally we stick to Web Series and tend to leave the world of Web Reality alone; but when a few of our favorite people are in the mix we won’t dare turn a blind eye. Produced by Jah and KL Allen, the series centers around Sherrod Willis, Adrian Crear, Jr., Krisean Woods, Charle Xile, Cordae, Sir’Akeem, Zahfar, and Milan Jadda; each of them popular faces of Atlanta’s local Black LGBT community, and all trying to climb their way to the heights of success and true fame. Some of them have it, some of them want it, and well some we can tell we are going to wish they would STOP.

The super trailer for The G-Status Atlanta Hustle looks amazing and with appearances by familiar faces like Kontrol Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Julian Lark, Web Stars Chris JuneRahim Brazil and Gary Lavard, and our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning, we will definitely be tuning in.

Jah and KL may very well have a runaway hit on their hands and we are happy to witness the rise of its key players while gorging ourselves on the tea being spilled and shade being thrown. After all Atlanta would not be Atlanta if there was no entertaining drama, mayhem, and reads from its “kidz” (Snap, snap)! Congrats to the cast and crew!
