Silicon Valley has become a beloved show amongst the internet generation. The show satirized the happenings Silicon Valley, and the events we hear about it through our news feeds. Recently, the series is being mentioned most when the media covers T.J. Miller. Miller is currently facing sexual assault allegations; to which he and his wife denied. To make matters worse, the cast and creator the TV series said working with him came with challenges during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
While at times he was controlled, other times, he arrived on set under the influence, says the Silicon Valley team. Creator, Mike Judge also shared that when Miller overslept or was late, entire schedules would have to be “rejiggered” to stay efficient. Miller responded to the allegations stating, “In real life, I’m not always high like his character the show] Erlich is.” He followed the statement declaring he doesn’t show up to work under the influence.
Instead, T.J. blames his behavior on his hectic schedule. “So, the thing I have a problem with? It’s pushing myself to do too much” the actor suggests. He claims performing his stand-up routines late at night can affect his work. After all the trouble, Miller left Silicon Valley after season 4 when he wasn’t promised a full-time role for the final season.

Rakim goes on to claim that the tweet was done without his knowledge but feels inclined to reemphasize the distinction between “rap” and “hip hop” which as previously contended by me, is little concern to artists spearheading the movement nowadays. Rakim does concede that hip hop has taken “different routes throughout the years,” and like a loving a parent “just wanted to see it prosper.”

Twenty somethings’ are at the center the culture: that feels oddly familiar. Although Rakim passes commentary in a dignified manner even going as far as to suggest that young artists should be allowed free reign to explore their talents and creativity under a more objective lens, he does pose a single caveat:
“Without no disrespect to any artist, there’s a lot degrading music out there — as far as degrading the culture and degrading society,”

In a new interview with XXL, Tee Grizzley revealed that he has a new mixtape on the way called Still My Moment, which will be followed by his long awaited debut album Activated. While he didn’t give us any time table for their releases, the Detroit rapper did say the debut album would be more about the slums Detroit and the people who live there, rather than the glamorous lifestyle.
“My debut album is called Activated. And we’re putting a mixtape out called Still My Moment. When people hear my music, they ain’t really hearing about no shiny stuff, the glamorous life.” Tee Grizzley said. “They’re going to hear that gritty, slum. It’s a dark cloud over my city. I’ve been through it and I’ma tell you in detail. A lot people just ride past the slums in their music. Boarded-up trap houses, cars parked on the grass. I’m going to take you into those houses, into the minds the people that’s in those houses.”
