Through The Looking Glass.


Teaming up with photographer Atiba Jefferson, Mike Campau wanted to come up with a new way to show traditional portraits. Campau states that “Images affected by glass refraction has always intrigued me, so I thought I would start there.” After trying to use more traditional effects to achieve the proper look, the logistics of trying to stack and overlay them proved to be quite impractical. Mike then turned to full CGI for the glass effect.  But regardless of the technique the combination of Atiba Jefferson and Mike Campau on this photo project is incredible.  Check the method below.

Over the years, RBMA has brought together artists for joint lectures on the couch. For their Festival New York in 2016, it was the turn of three beatmakers from hip hop’s biggest hit-making city of recent vintage: Atlanta. ATL favorite sons Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital and Zaytoven appeared at Red Bull Studios New York, discussing their early influences and breakout hits, the rise of trap and the producer drop, and their approach to sampling and collaboration. Their hits include work for Future, Drake, Migos, iLoveMakonnen and many, many more.

Rihanna’s “Work” video has finally arrived. The wait was refreshingly short for the newfound queen of anticipation, who’s back with the full release after teasing a clip to Twitter Friday.  “Work,” featuring Drake, is the the first single from her long-awaitedAnti, which officially debuted on Tidal Jan. 28 after months of delays. In the first half of the video, directed by Director X, Rihanna “works” her hips as hard as her vocals, grinding on the rapper amidst a dimly lit party.  But when the party ends, another video starts. The second half, helmed by Tim Erem, features just Rihanna and Drake in a pink-lit room. Check the method below.

Meanwhile… Back At Drake’s House (Back to Back).

I was having a conversation earlier in the week with my good friend and producer Masna, about Drake’s semi-response to Meek Mills’ accusations of Drizzy’s lyrics on Meeks album being ghost written. I personally thought his first response was a bit soft served. A rapper who built a career around “Diss me, and you’ll never hear a reply for it.” finally straight up disses someone one, but it was only a few subliminal bars that rang through on a mellow “not addressing the subject” feel.  What I told Manni is that Drake should have come full force in his response, a blistering rebutle of indictments oozing with ferocity… And then he did. Take a listen to October’s Very Own’s second diss track titled “Back to Back” and sound off on what you think.

Drake- ‘Charged Up’


drake-cover-990

Earlier this week, the rapper Meek Mill unleashed a series of tweets that sought to expose the much more famous rapper Drake as a fraud. The two had recently collaborated on the Meek Mill single “R.I.C.O.,” and Meek seemed a bit salty that Drake hadn’t promoted the tune on his social media or whatever his reason was, so he accused him of using a ghostwriter on the tune and faking his raps. Drake stayed relatively quiet about it until he released his response ‘Charged Up’ today. Check it out below!
