Bryshere Gray covers the Spring 2016 issue of Heed magazine. The digital issue will be available for download just in time for the season 2 return of Empire tonight (March 30).

Inside Heed magazine, Bryshere reflects on using his social media fame to affect social justice for young black people in America.

Bryshere Gray

On Empire, the 22-year-old Philly native plays irksome rapper, Hakeem Lyon, who juggles his thirst for fame with his desire to best his brothers for control of the family business.

Heed magazine -- His character, Hakeem Lyon, is a fan favorite amongst viewers, primarily because of his natural ‘swag’ and seemingly rebellious nature. At just 22-years-old, Bryshere is not just another young rapper and actor, he’s proven to be very engaged with the current cultural climate and has become an advocate for social justice.

In one of the more poignant moments of our conversation, he reflected on his time at the Million Man March for Justice this past October. He says, “Don’t try to stand up for something that you don’t believe in…not the jewelry, the cars, the women, etc. The Million Man March was a historic moment. So, I feel like I had to be there as a young millennial and it was dope!”

    Empire has been off the air for so long it seems. I'm ready to see howhow the season progresses tonight. Despite its criticism I can think of 5 shows off top that don't come close to Empire...writing, plot or acting.

    I aint copped a magazine since my Source subscription ended in 2003. I will read one if I see one. But me paying for it? Nah.

    I take that back. I think I got Sports Illustrated until Dub11 was born. So 2005. And I didnt pay for it. Stupid did.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Maybe it should have been called Head magazine

    Interesting. He does nothing for me. He looks like a child and his character is childish/juvenile. Well, at least it was Season 1, which is the last time I watched Empire. I don't get grown man or swag from him.

  • AnonymousRose

    I don't even watch this..soooooooo

    DEAD @ whoever Stupid is. LOL! Used to get free mags at work, but besides that, unless I see something that catches my eye at the hair salon (and that's rare), those are the only paper mags I ever see.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    And this seems to be from the snippet, a positive article for young adults. I just looked and that is the genre Heed Mag is trying to cater too. A voice for the young adults. I support it. Eem though they had the two youngest Jenners up there. Still. I get it.

  • Finding Forever…

    At first glance, read this as Head Magazine...LOL...SORRY...USE THOSE 15min, I GUESS...

  • Bam Bam

    Empire really jumped off at first and then start taking a lot of left turns for me. Not even sure if I'm still interested anymore. Will give it another chance but this dude acts like a big baby.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    One more thing. You said "Stupid did" the way I would say "Mike did." Like that's the name on his birth certificate. Which lets me know you call him that on the regular. LOL!!!! My 80-something y.o. auntie was so used to calling another family member "Boss Hogg" to the rest of us, she didn't even realize she said it to her face like 3 times in a conversation. My sis & I could barely breathe we laughing so hard.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    The digital mags I get our home-type magazines. The kind of magazine whose content is not obsolete by press time like news mags. I don't love cooking, but I used to snag a foodie mag on occasion at work. They definitely have great tips in them.

    *jacked (It appears that these guns will make it into places without being detected :coffee: )

    A Minnesota company has invented a handgun that folds up to look just like a smartphone.

    The .380-caliber pistol, called Ideal Conceal, will be available later this year and "will be virtually undetectable because it hides in plain sight," Ideal Conceal says on its website.

    In locked position, the two-shot plastic gun with a metal core can be discreetly slipped into pockets, like a real phone. But "with one click of the safety it opens and is ready to fire," Ideal Conceal claims.

    The creator, Kirk Kjellberg, told NBC News the idea came to him after he attracted attention for carrying a concealed weapon in a restaurant.

    "A boy spotted me in the restaurant and said loudly, 'Mommy, Mommy, that guy's got a gun!' And then pretty much the whole restaurant stared at me," he said.

    So Kjellberg, who calls himself a "serial
    inventor," decided to make a gun that wouldn't stand out so much. He
    says the Ideal Conceal is the same size as his Galaxy S7 phone with a
    protective case on it: About 3 inches by 5 inches.

    Ooh Ooh I LOVE to see them in some jogging pants and that slong be swinging like a church bell...

  • iWasteTime

  • Blaque Mahogany

    That's just what the world needs. Smh.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    (I stand corrected LOL-here's the rest)

    A Facebook page for Ideal Conceal already has more than 13,000 likes. But the product has attracted concern too, with critics arguing its design could pose a security threat at airports and other places.

    Kjellberg denies that. "It's kind of an erroneous idea that this is any different from any other pistol, because when you run it through an x-ray, it has barrels and triggers and hammers — all the things other guns have. It has enough metal in it that it can't escape the metal detector," he said.

    The Department of Homeland Security has contacted him about the pistol, and he plans on giving them x-rays of it so law enforcement can distinguish it from cellphones during airport screenings.

    Kjellberg also dismissed concerns about children seeing the phone-shaped weapon and accidentally getting hurt.

    "In America, we have lots of children in contact with pistols already. There's been quite a few incidents long before my
    product came along," he said. "For me, it's not the gun. It's the
    people. So if you have a pistol and you have children anywhere near you, it's your responsibility to lock that stuff up and keep it away from children."

    An Ideal Conceal prototype is slated for June, with sales beginning in October. The gun is listed for $395.

    More than 4,000 people around the world have expressed interest in buying it, Kjellberg told NBC affiliate KARE in
    Minneapolis.

    Gun sales hit a new high in 2015 and have nearly doubled since President Obama took office, federal data shows. They peaked in December after the mass terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.

    You're happy and blessed, don't let him take your joy away, and don't let him annoy you. Types like that feed off of the negativity. It's an ego issue for him. When you're happy, he wants to see if he can break you down...once you're broken, he slips away until you're happy again, smh...

    -----------
    GREEN BAY, Wisc. — Donald Trump believes that there should be punishment for women who undergo abortions if the procedure was outlawed, but indicated he has yet to determine what that punishment should be.

    In an exclusive interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews, the GOP front-runner described himself multiple times as "pro-life" but struggled to define what the legal ramifications of that position should be. When continually pressed for what the answer is regarding punishing women who would break any theoretical ban, Trump said the "answer is that there has to be some form of punishment, yeah."

    When asked what kind of punishment he had in mind, Trump lacked specifics and said he has "not determined what the punishment would be." Trump noted that he does "take positions on everything else but this is a very complicated position."

    "If you say abortion is a crime or abortion is murder, you have to deal with it under the law," Matthews stated, making the pivot from the moral position of being pro-life to the practical
    implications of implementing that position in the law.

    Trump asked Matthews "are you going to say, well wait, are you going to say put them in jail? Is that the punishment you're talking about?"

    Matthews responded that that's the question he was asking the front-runner himself. Trump responded that he was pro-life.

    The MSNBC host followed up wondering if a man should bear responsibility for abortions as well, to which Trump said "no" he didn't think so.

    Trump asked repeatedly about the Catholic church's position on abortion, at multiple points trying to turn the questions on the interviewer himself in relation to how he squared the moral position of the church with the real life implications.

    Should the United States change the law of the land on abortion as set by the landmark SCOTUS ruling Roe vs Wade Trump
    says "you'll go back to a position like they had where people will,
    perhaps, go to illegal places." Still, he maintains "you have to ban it."

    Ohio Republican John Kasich, who participated in an MSNBC town hall moderated by NBC's Chuck Todd earlier in the day,
    was asked if he agreed with Trump on the prospect of punishing women for abortion. "Absolutely not," Kasich responded. "I do have exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother but of course women shouldn't be punished," he added.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I was told by dude if a nigga ever hits you up with "Hey Stranger" that is male code for are we ever gonna smash again? Do you need some peen? I miss yours. Do you miss mine?

  • LeBrick James

    A chick I used to date (who had a lot of trash to talk about me to her friends after the breakup) married some dude, and the marriage ended up being a disaster.
    I'm happily married today, meanwhile now she's a single mom with 2 kids. Her ex-husband just posted some pics of himself and his boyfriend at the gay pride parade.

    Nowadays, sometimes I kinda feel bad for her ... but then again I kinda dont. Sometimes bad things happen to bad people. What goes around comes around.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    In Wednesday's town hall meeting, Trump also continued the defense of his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, saying that he didn't think an initial apology from his campaign manager would've changed the current situation.

    "I think if he called up to apologize I think we'd be in the exact same place," he told Matthews, wondering if
    Lewandowski may have even apologized in the moment. "They're destroying a very good person…over nothing" Trump said. "He's a good person with a wonderful family."

    Trump called the incident in question "so minor" before continuing to discredit former Brietbart reporter Michelle
    Fields by attacking the premise of her story. "What's contact?" he hedged, noting that her facial expression didn't change despite saying she was almost pulled to the ground by Lewandowski. Trump later added that he was "skeptical" about her.

    The GOP front-runner says "nobody respects women" more than he does. That respect, however, doesn't necessarily translate to Fields. "I would say I don't have great respect for her," Trump told Matthews. He also dodged when asked why he didn't have sympathy for Fields, instead pointing out that the tape being used by
    the police investigation was his tape and saying that there are more pressing issues at play, like ISIS and foreign threats.

    As he's said before, Trump alleged that Fields touched him twice and questioned if he should even go so far as to press charges against her. He once again posited that she was breaking the rules as the press conference was over and she was still trying to ask questions by dogging him as he left the room.

    Trump also called out the Jupiter Police, saying that "what they've done is, I think, outrageous.

    *horn sounds* OPEN TOPIC:
    Thoughts????

    Three Sikh-American soldiers filed a new lawsuit against the U.S.
    Department of Defense Tuesday morning, according to The Sikh Coalition. Specialist Kanwar Singh, Specialist Harpal Singh, and Private Arjan Singh Ghotra are seeking to serve in the U.S. military while also practicing their Sikh faith and keeping their Sikh articles of faith — turban, unshorn hair, and beard — intact.

    "Three Sikhs filed suit against the Army to ensure that their
    requests for religious accommodation are resolved by their basic
    training ship dates in May," Harsimran Kaur, The Sikh Coalition's
    legal director, told NBC News. "The lead plaintiff has been waiting
    over seven months. The Army has been failing to make decisions on
    whether these patriotic Sikhs will be able serve their country while
    abiding by the tenets of their faith. In doing so, the Army is violating
    their constitutional and statutory rights."

    Despite making requests for religious accommodation months ago, Singh, Singh, and Ghotra said they are seeking an answer now so that they can begin basic combat training with their units in May. They are represented by The Sikh Coalition, the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, and McDermott Will & Emery. The three organizations also represented decorated Sikh-American soldier Captain Simratpal Singh, who won a temporary restraining order March 4 against additional non-standard, discriminatory testing. A final decision on Captain Singh's case is expected March 31.

    "We believe that the court will find that the Army is continuing to
    discriminate against observant Sikhs, and will enjoin the Army to allow
    the Sikh plaintiffs to serve with articles of faith intact," Kaur said.

    Before 1974, Sikh Americans were allowed to serve in the U.S. military with their articles of faith intact. But since 1981, stricter grooming regulations have required requests for religious accommodation on a case-by-case basis, and only three have been granted. In contrast, about 50,000 U.S. soldiers have permanent beard exemptions for medical reasons.

    In December 2015 remarks at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter expressed to Specialist Kanwar Singh his support for allowing observant Sikhs to serve in the U.S. military, referencing Canada's new minister of defense and the United States military's need for the best possible volunteers.

    A Mississippi woman pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday to trying
    to join Islamic State in Syria, 2-1/2 weeks after her husband entered
    the same plea.

    Jaelyn Delshaun Young, 20, was arrested at a Mississippi airport in August 2015 while attempting to board a flight to Turkey with her husband, Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla, 23.

    Young acknowledged her role as the "planner of the expedition" in an
    incriminating farewell letter, according to court documents filed by
    U.S. prosecutors.

    Convictions for Islamic State-related activity by Americans have become more frequent in recent months as more than 80 such cases brought by U.S. prosecutors since 2013 work their way through federal courts.Young's Twitter posts about her desire to join the militant group caught the attention of the FBI in May 2015, and an agent posing as an Islamic State recruiter began corresponding with her and Dakhlalla.

    *jacked WOW!!!

    An Ohio gun shop owner refused to sell a gun to a man, despite the potential customer having cleared background checks. Now some are saying that in doing so, shop owner John Downs might have foiled plans for a mass shooting.

    James Howard, 25, withdrew from his classes at Ohio University last Monday and allegedly assaulted an assistant hockey coach before driving to Downs' store. Downs, however, turned him away. "Just the look in his eye... there was something about him. I don't know. You really can't explain it. He was going to do something. He was going to do something," Downs told CBS News.

    Howard returned to the gun store later that same day but Downs locked the door and had a customer call 911. The police later found Howard's car with a gun in the back seat at a Walmart; Howard was in the process of purchasing almost 50 rounds of 20-gauge shot gun shell ammunition.

    Hocking County Sherriff Lanny North told CBS he believed Downs' gut reaction might have saved lives. "We don't know what he may have prevented," North said.

    Howard, who has a history of mental illness, is being held on $125,000 bond for the possession of a firearm while allegedly being drug dependent or in danger of becoming so, as well as for reportedly purchasing his firearm by making false statements on his background check form.

    It is awesome that Bryshere is active in affecting social change. Everyday, a young Black man or woman is being shot and killed by police, with no remorse and often no recourse. Since the parents who have kids these age would rather speak ill of him and his work than be active participants in affecting that change, and the young people his age would rather "turn up," Black youth will continue to be targets.

    Good for Bryshere for being socially responsible and mindful of the image he presents to the public. It's good to know there are people who still have a conscience today.
