A Set It Off adaptation will be coming to the stage soon. In other news, Kanye West and the Kardashian-Jenners will compete on “Family Feud,” and Travis Scott is still going strong with Kylie Jenner. Everything inside…
In the era of reboots popping up left and right, another classic is about to get the treatment.
A stage play adaptation of the 90s film Set It Off is about to hit the stage sooner rather than later.
Rapper/”Rickey Smiley Morning Show” co-host Da Brat made the announcement on her Instagram page, revealing she will reprise Queen Latifah’s groundbreaking role of Cleopatra “Cleo” Sims. Singer Letoya Luckett, singer/actress Demetria McKinney, and actress Kyla Pratt will round out the cast to play Jada Pinkett, Vivica A. Fox, Kimberly Elise’s epic roles.
Playwright Je’Caryous Johnson, who has worked on Married But Single and Two Can Play That Game stage plays, is behind the stage play project. He even got the blessing from Set It Off writer Takashi Bufford. Peep the clip below:

Y’all here for it?
In TV news...
Apparently, Kanye West always dreamed of being on “Family Feud.” Now, his wish has come true.
Yesterday, the PABLO rapper rounded up his wife Kim Kardashian West and a few of his family members to tape an episode of “Family Feud” where they will compete against the Kardashian-Jenner family. This should be a doozy. We’re already counting how many WTF moments will likely transpire.
According to reports, it was actually supposed to be the Kardashian-Jenners up against the Hiltons, but they backed out at the last minute. Apparently Rick Hilton thought the family appearing on the show would be “thirsty.” His daughter Nicky Hilton didn’t want anything to do with it either. However, his daughter Paris Hilton and his wife Kathy Hilton were on board. But without the whole family, it didn’t work.
Ye looked happy to be there though:
No word yet will the episode will be airing, but we'll keep you posted.
Speaking of the Karashian-Jenner family...
New parents Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner were spotted together for the first time since baby Stormi made her arrival into the world earlier this month. There had been rumors swirling that the first-time parents had broken up, but as you can see they are still very much together.
The new parents, along with Kylie's bestie Jordyn Woods, stepped out to lunch it up at Nobu Malibu yesterday before hopping in a LaFerrari to head back home.
It's reported the $1.4 million luxury whip was a push present for Kylie from Travis. Oh.
