New comedy flick Get Hard hits theaters next Friday. And last night, T.I. (who stars in the film) hosted a private screening for a few YBF folks. Peep the pics of the King of the South, Russell Simmons, Adrienne Bailon, Laura and Gloria Govan and more inside….

Last night, Clifford “T.I.” Harris hosted a private screening for the upcoming flick Get Hard (March 27th), starring Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell. The screening went down at All Def Comedy Live (powered by The Brand Group) held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. If you haven’t heard, the Atlanta rapper has a role in the film as Russell, Kevin’s character’s cousin.

In legal news, Marvin Gaye’s family is now seeking royalties from T.I. for the profits he made off the hit 2013 single “Blurred Lines,” also featuring Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams. The Gaye family was already awarded $7.3 million that Robin and P have to cough up. Now, they want some coins from Tip AND their record labels. SMH….

Russell Simmons, the man who brings All Def Comedy Live every Wednesday, was in the building last night for the special screening.

On top of his successful weekly comedy event, the Hip Hop mogul is gearing up to bring rap music to Broadway. According to Deadline, the entrepreneur is developing a new musical that will be driven by “the greatest hits from a two-decade span of hip-hop — from the ‘golden age’ of the mid-80s to mid-90s to the chart-topping artists at the turn of the millennium,” titled The Scenario, debuting in NYC in late 2016.

Former reality stars Gloria & Laura Govan pulled out the mini dresses and trench coats for last night’s screening. Nice to see Laura getting her life back on track after undergoing a miscarriage (that she shared on Instagram) a few weeks ago.

Tip and Russell chopped it up. We wonder if they discussed any details on the video game they’re developing with T.I.’s sons Domani & Major.
