…African-American entrepreneur Michelle Timberlake-Jackson is taking a bite out of the industry.

Marjorie’s Beef Jerky Inc. markets, distributes, and sells a beef jerky brand that features six flavors (Original, Hot & Spicy, Sweet & Spicy, Cracked Pepper, Teriyaki and Burnout). The products are also MSG free and are made only with natural ingredients. When Timberlake started her company in 1991 she was (and still is) an 18-wheeler truck driver.

Sisters Launch Online Service That Brings The Hair Salon To You

Yeluchi, our at-home hair styling service, is an accumulation of everything we’ve learned so far.”

Kanye West is a man of his word. Turns out Pablo not only delivered free adidas Yeezys to every who guess the name of his album, but to all the hard working paparazzi who take his pictures, too. Reports TMZ: We got ‘Ye back in November when he promised he’d hand out the shoes for all the paps’ hard work. Seemed like big talk at the time, but earlier this week he delivered to a bunch of freelance camera guys. Totally free of charge! At $200 a pop, it’s a pretty generous gift. We’re told he also sent out more than 100 pairs to everyone who guessed his album name correctly.
