Check out this morning's edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.  This week's show featured former EBONY Fashion Fair model, A Lady Named Pearl, who stopped by to chat about her new beauty & fashion publication, PEARL.  She also weighed in on the controversial Pepsi ad that aired this week that caused an uproar on social media.

UPFRONT also attended the red carpet premiere of "The Fate of the Furious" and caught up with one of the film's stars Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges about the franchise and its enduring legacy. I also talked to "Being Mary Jane" star Gabrielle Union on the red carpet about the popular BET series and her other film projects. 

Closing out the show was comedy legend George Wallace, who talked about his new film, "Grow House" starring DeRay Davis, Lil Duv and Snoop Dogg. He also opened up about rebranding his career, Atlanta and much more. Dr. Wallace and I talked for quite some time and an unedited version of our interview will be posted later on this week for your listening pleasure. 

“UPFRONT” Inside Atlanta Entertainment Industry is 30-minute radio magazine that features one-on-one interviews with all of the major players and behind-the-scenes superstars that make Atlanta the “Entertainment Capital of the South.” It airs every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK and his hosted by yours truly, Ray Cornelius.

CORRECTION: Kylie Jenner did not air in the Pepsi commercial as mentioned on the show. It was her sister Kendall Jenner. Also Gabrielle Union's new film is titled, "The Public" not "The Project." UPFRONT apologizes for the errors.
