#TBT Jason's Lyric

imageNowadays, Jada Pinkett is mostly known for being the wife of Academy Award Nominee Will Smith and mother to Willow and Jaden.  However, back in the day Jada was a Series Regular on the popular Cosby show spinoff...A Different World and was making quite  name for herself in Black Hollywood. Allen Payne, was making his leading man debut, right off the heels of a successful performance opposite Wesley Snipes in New Jack City.

Jason' Lyric, by all accounts, was an Urban Love Story that centered around middle-class Jason and his responsibility guilt he grew up with regarding the unfortunate demise of his Dad at the hands of his brother.  After meeting Lyric, he decides that it is time to move on with his life.  A life that doesn't include being chained and bound with the ties of his brother.

As with most of the films in this genre....happily-ever-after always comes with a price.

Here is a look back at Jason's Lyric...

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers...

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spinning enthusiasts, graduate of  the "mecca" - Howard University's School of Communications, former publicist, actress, branding influencer and "doggie mom" to an adorably smart-energetic maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me -- Carla Renata.

Formerly of UBNRAdio.com, where I Co-Hosted "On Air With Tony Sweet", this Fall, I will be hosting a new show for Black Hollywood Live owned by E! Correspondent Maria Menounos  and am a freelance contributor for NPR's Weekend All Things Considered.

I absolutely adore talking about all things cinema and it is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, know that I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share!  Enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
