T-Pain Flips The Twitch.


Everyone knows that celebrities at the end of the day, are just regular people like us. Many stars have been known to voice their love for dabbling in video games from ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ to World of Warcraft. Now we KNOW we’re late to the game here, (no pun intended) but upon first hear of rapper T-Pain joining “Twitch” the video game streaming service, where you can WATCH players play the game, along with the players themselves, we knew we had to take a look. It’s one thing to hear about your favorite rapper or singer playing your favorite video game, but to see them in FULL spectacle during their introduction must be a treat. That being said, T-Pain has to hold the title for THE MOST fantastic Twitch intro in Hip Hop history, and it true Twitch fashion, the whole world can see it. Now we know this occurred a little over a year ago when Covid lockdown was in full effect, but it’s spectacular enough to share never the less.

Caity Costa – Medicated.


“Medicated”, the next addition to the much awaited Butterfly EP, was wonderfully written by Caity Costa herself. The surreal bells and chimes in the slow, yet deliberate beat, mixed with her smooth voice and distant reverbs makes this one a must listen. Her emphasis on not caring what others think, (which is a strong message to individuals who could focus more on being themselves) also seems to be a foreground used to communicate a beliefs about actual medications. Her well said message appears to highlight the stresses and pitfalls of medications and the stress that can be put on them to help you… when all you really need yourself. “Medicated” is leisurely and meaningful, and reminds you about the intoxicating invigoration you can provide yourself.

Who You Gonna Call?


Sony Pictures has released an international trailer for “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”, and while a few shots are recycled from previous promos, this teaser comprised almost entirely of new footage. When the review embargo lifted last week, many critics took issue with how much Afterlife relied on fan-service and revisiting well-known scenarios from the original movies, and the marketing team appears to have taken this on board… by dialling the nostalgia all the way up to 11 for this new trailer. We hear an updated version of the classic theme as our young heroes chase spooks in the Ecto-1, there are several mentions of Egon (the late Harold Ramis), and the return of one of the first film’s Terror Dogs. In fact, right at the end we get a recreation of the scene in which Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) discovers one of the preternatural pooches in his closet. While this will likely prove to be divisive, we have a feeling a lot of Ghostbusters fans are going to lap it up.

The NOT Trailer For Black Adam!


As many people may already know, there still is no trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s passion project “Black Adam”, HOWEVER, thanks to DC’s Fandome exhibition, The Rock was able to display a featurette.  This movie has been in a years long fight through the workings of Hollywood, and now is finally wrapping up its production.  In a cross section of some of the scenes shown off you can hear them say Shazam’s name, and while we’re not entirely sure what exactly they have to do with one another, Its widely known that Black Adam is a Shazam villain. One of the Hodge brothers is in the film which is never a bad thing for any film, but now that we’ve gotten a peak at just a hair of a hind of the finished product, we’re sure this is just driving fans that can’t wait to see an actual first trailer… much less the finished film.

Caity Costa – Cleanse


Caity Costa has returned with her 2nd single off “The Butterly EP”. Heavy hitting bass is an unexpected yet welcome backdrop to Costa’s soft singing with gentle Melodie’s and soothing harmonies.  The songs content is geared towards finding a new beginning after dirtier times.  Which can lend itself to an innumerable number of situations we all face either day to day or over time.  The overall positive and uplifting tone of the song is reason enough to give it a listen, but as her collection of releases grows, “Cleanse” is a track that will resonate with anyone, but most of all with those who need to hear something uplifting. Watch below for just a quick preview, and click the cover above to stream.

‘Spiderman: Across The Spiderverse’.


With all the DC news popping off recently, us comic book fans can’t can’t ever deny that Marvel always seems to have one in the chamber.  While the constant speculation over “No Way Home” has been at a fever pitch since the first look at the first bits of the first trailer LEAKED on someone’s cell phone… (yes, people have been throwing theories like frisbees since then.) we now have something different look forward to.  One of the best reviewed Spiderman films since 2006’s ‘Spiderman 2’, “Into The Spiderverse” put us in an entirely different pair of shoes when it came to the much loved protagonist.  Instead of following Peter Parker, “Into The Spiderverse” features the newer Miles Morales version of Spiderman (among a few others).  While Morales was hinted at in ‘Spiderman: Homecoming’, he was in full force in his own film, which not has an official release window, and titles.  No one knew that the next Spiderman news to rock the internet would have NOTHING to do with the 2023 sequel “Across The Spiderverse” but we’re happy that it is. For those of you were are oblivious to the WONDER that was “Into The Spiderverse”, take a look at what ‘WIRED’ dug up on how the original was created.

Caity Costa – Butterfly.


Caity Costa has been on the music scene for quite some time, be it in music videos, on magazine covers, or just straight up in your ears with a flurry of solo songs and collaborations with artists all over. Now she’s on the scene once again with her newest title track “Butterfly”, just one quarter of the Butterfly EP, being released all throughout the month of October. The song ‘Butterfly’ itself finds a truly unique and refreshing blend between sultry R&B singing, and an incredible spoken word poem embodying her thoughts and feelings. Its a joy to listen to, and the song embodies the emotions of many, while its presentation has only been approached by few. The wonderfully executed track was produced by Bat Area native Joe Major, and is available for a listen by just clicking the cover above, and hear a sample in the promo video below.

Papoose & Lil Wayne – ‘Thought I Was Gunna Stop’ Freestyle.


With the lyrical strength Papoose has had from the second he entered the rap arena, it’s always been a mystery of mysteries as to why he’s constantly overlooked. Every once In a while, regardless of their situation, an rapper doesn’t have to punch down on a freestyle track, or punch up… in ‘Though I Was Gonna Stop’, Papoose matches wits with Lil Wayne, and simply punches LINES. Check the method below, and dont fear to let us know what you think about this Timbaland produced track below. We only wish it was a little bit longer.

Dave Chappelle is BACK. (again)… (AGAIN).


It started with “The Age Of Spin”, and has spun out of control from there with the resurgence of Dave Chappelle. He’s gone from Comedy Central show host to legend as soon as he quit the Chappelle show, and seemingly out of nowhere, his return rocked the comedy scene. The promotional ads for his newest Netflix special seem to ask the same question, how do you finish a run of HOURS of comedy that has been this prolific. Since Chappelle started his first special with Morgan Freeman narrating, comedy fans and audiences alike have been waiting for an epic conclusion while never wanting them to end at the same time. Take a look as some of the promos as you may be waiting anxiously for TOMORROW, October 5th, 2021. ‘The Closer’ can only be followed by the wait for whatever Chappelle decides to do next.

Jay-Z and Kid Cudi’s Are On ‘The Harder They Fall’ Trailer.


Netflix has just debuted a new trailer and poster for upcoming Western The Harder The Fall, featuring plenty of stylized wild west action from a truly dynamite cast. The footage kicks-off with “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King), Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and their gang busting leader Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) out of jail, and it doesn’t look like these guys have much interest in taking prisoners. From there, we’re introduced to fellow outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors), who sets off with former flame Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler), and Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) to seek vengeance against the ruthless Buck. This modern spin on the Western genre features a primarily Black cast, and hails from director and producer Jeymes Samuel, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Boaz Yakin. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, James Lassiter, and Lawrence Bender are on board as producers, and the all-star ensemble also includes Delroy Lindo, Damon Wayans Jr., Deon Cole, and Danielle Deadwyler. Check out the trailer below, which also features a tease of a new track from Jay-Z and Kid Cudi.

Lia Sabella’s Island Suite.


As much as we’d like it to be, this isn’t a tour of Lia Sabella’s personal island suite, however, it’s something we’d love even more… Her 3rd EP “Island Suite”. The 7 track project features production primarily from ‘F1rst Class’, and is elegantly and filled out with Lia’s mellifluous singing. The songs range in topics like relationships, emotional compromise, and distressing in such a way as to connect with listeners on an emotional level, leaving them feeling relaxed. From the beautiful imagery to the quality of sounds, and fluidity of the entire project, “Island Suite” is one to definitely lay back and relax to, no matter what you may be feeling inside. Take a listen to “Vacation” below, just for a taste of an EP that is for sure to be on repeat in your headphones soon.

Click any of the photos to stream or download the entire R&B project produced by F1rst Class, and once again, beautifully sung by Lia Sabella. If the sultry sounds of this EP don’t leave you in a great place wherever you are, they will definitely make you want to take a getaway… Just look at how relaxed she looks.

‘The Suicide Squad’ Bloopers Are Here.


The Suicide Squad won’t hit DVD and Blu-ray until October 26, but James Gunn’s bonkers DC Comics requel is now available to purchase on Digital formats, and Warner Bros. has marked the occasion by sharing an official gag-reel for the movie online. There are some very funny moments here, including Flula Borg improving his lines and hijacking the helicopter scene as Javelin, Idris Elba inadvertently hitting David Dastmalchian in the family jewels when he tosses him a gun, John Cena reclaiming Frodo’s lost finger (and then sucking it), and more.

We also get a brief look at one of the film’s deleted scenes, as Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior) finds a distraught Polka-Dot Man (Dastmalchian) in the back of the van. This is most likely the sequence we heard about involving Abner and The Thinker (Peter Capaldi) outside the nightclub which results in the latter losing his earlobe.  The Suicide Squad may have underperformed at the box office, but the movie now has a chance to make a big impact on home release. Do you plan on picking up a copy on Blu-ray when it hits next month?

Time To Enroll In Your ‘Deadly-Class’.


Deadly Class fans were treated to a hell of a surprise when the first episode of the TV adaptation went online this morning. SyFy is currently hosting the pilot for free via its YouTube channel to get viewers pumped up for the series’ actual premier on January 16th. The pilot introduces audiences to Marcus, a homeless teenager in 1980s America who gets recruited by a school for the next generation of deadly assassins. It’s a chaotic, action-packed, fever dream of a show complete with a punk rock soundtrack and aesthetics.  For those of you who would rather be surprised, do not watch the hour long video below, however, if you won’t mind the wait, then by all means, enjoy this incredible first episode to what will hopefully be an amazing first season to a great, fresh show.

Tyga – Swish (Official Video).


Booty booty booty.  The “Swish” video came out quite a while ago, but it still makes me quite happy.  Check the method.

Don’t Be Afraid To Fall. Duckwrth Is Back.


“Fall Back” may be one of Duckwrth’s finest productions yet.  Before I expand, take a listen to the song below.  Duckwrth as successfully don’t a feature with HIMSELF.  Over an aggressive beat produced by ‘Two Fresh Beats”, the song seems as if features multiple artists based on the pitch and tone of his bars.  But his aggressive nature, and smooth tones in the same song are quite unique, It engages the listener in a way that Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Mad City” do as well.

What Is Pizzaoki?


Pastry hurling international dance icon Steve Aoki has decided to temporarily halt the on-stage cake throwing gimmick and pick up the dough roller. The 40-year superstar DJ/producer has just announced the opening of Pizzaoki in his hometown of Los Angeles. As the son of Benihana’s founder, who once told Yahoo Finance he has never received a penny from his father, the inventively named new restaurant seems like a fitting next move for the entrepreneurial mogul.

A themed restaurant in it’s conception, much like the theatrical Japanese chain started by his late father, Aoki says that customers will be able to enjoy quality pizza recipes named after his hit songs — for instance, a classic cheese dubbed “Just Hold On” or the “Mayhem,” a supreme with all the toppings. The new concept also relies heavily on technology for delivery, as Pizzaoki currently lacks a brick and mortar location. Customers can currently place orders through Postmates and Uber Eats.

Allendale Chizle – Allendale (Official Video).


Since the total reinvention of his image, and a change in name, the streets of Oakland have been clambering for some new music from Allendale Chizle.  The video, produced by ‘Albanza Films’ for his new single Allendale, should give the people exactly what they’re been looking for.  Check the video below.

Janelle Monáe – D’Jango Jane (Official Video).


It’s been over a week, and some people still can’t talk about Jangle Monae’s newest music video “D’Jango Jane”.  Filled with incredible choreography, amazing videos, and spectacular camera angles, this on is not to be missed.  Oh, and I forgot to mention that the song, the delivery, and the lyrics are top notch as well.  Check the method.

Black Panther: The Album.


After a few teases, Marvel have announced the release of Black Panther: The Album, which will feature music from and inspired by the Ryan Coogler-directed Marvel Studios film of the same name. The compilation album will be curated and produced by Kendrick Lamar and Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith.
“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director,” Lamar said via a press release.

“The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside [director Ryan Coogler] and Marvel’s vision.”  Along with the announcement, the first single from the album has also debuted. Check out “All The Stars” by Kendrick Lamar and SZA below, and let us know what you think.

Fans can stream the song and pre-order the album here. No release date has been given, but it’s likely to coincide with Black Panther’s theatrical release on February 16, 2018.

I Know Him! He’s A Friend From Work.


In a surprise no one saw coming, Marvel Studios has released the first teaser trailer for their highly anticipated fall release, Thor Ragnarok, and it’s pretty damn awesome.  It’s not particularly forthcoming with plot details, but we do learn why Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder hasn’t been spotted with Mjolnir in any of the early promo art as Cate Blanchett’s Hela, headdress and all, shatters his mighty hammer to Kingdom Come and takes over Asgard. The trailer also shows off nearly all of the new and returning characters and closes with our hero stepping into the Grandmaster’s arena where he reencounters an old friend from work… but it doesn’t seem like the reunion will be as joyous as he had hoped.  Check out the trailer, which is set to Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” below:

Take A Look At King Kong’s Amazing Final New Trailer.

It’s only been about 12 years or so since the last time anyone saw Kong the King on screen.  This new adaptation at first had some doubters but after a few looks, and this latest trailer, I don’t know how anyone could not be excited for the new Kong.  Check the trailer below.

Missy Elliott Is BETTER.


missy-elliott-_press-photo-2017_derek-blanks

The queen Missy Elliott has shared a new single and video, “I’m Better.” The song is a minimal slapper that finds Missy going in with a vintage-Migos triplet flow and harmonizing with herself, and the hook comes courtesy of Lamb.  The visuals find the legend and a team of dancers hitting choreographed steps underwater in a swimming pool.  Check the method below.

 

The ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 2’ Trailer Is HERE.


gotgvol2posterofficial

The Guardians Of The Galaxy have been in the background of comic book fans minds, until James Gunn took the whimsical band of misfits, and turned their property into one of the greatest super-hero films of all time.  Since then, fans of the books, the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), and good movies in general have been clamoring to see more.  Today they get their wish, ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2’ got its debut trailer just a mere hours ago.  Check the method.

Assassins Creed May Be Worth The Wait.


assassin_s_creed_movie_flipped_poster_by_maximumsohan-da2byc0
With Assassin’s Creed right around the corner, yet another new clip has been released from the movie. This one focuses on a carriage chase, and if this is an indication of the sort of action we can expect, then this release really does stand a good chance of being the first truly great video game adaptation.  An original story rather than a direct take on one of the games, the movie picks up with Callum Lynch in the present after he discovers he’s a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.  After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day. Set in the same world as the game, but just how closely tied to them it will be remains to be seen. Assassin’s Creed stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Ariane Labed, and is currently set to be released on December 21st, 2016.

fetty-eye

Fetty Wap has been a Billboard chart mainstay for the first year of his professional career, but after taking what seemed to be a little bit of time off, he’s back with his new single “Make You Feel Good”.  The official video just dropped yesterday, check the method.
