“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.

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.

The Best Rhymers Of All Time


From the simple nursery rhyme–like bars of Kurtis Blow’s “The Breaks” to the smooth East Coast flow of Notorious B.I.G.’s hit song “Hypnotize” to the speedy delivery of Kendrick Lamar’s “Rigamortis,” rhyming in rap music has not only evolved, it’s gotten better.

The video below explores how some of the greatest rappers of all time create memorable, lyrically dense rhymes.

 

Rihanna- Needed Me


Rihanna drops yet another killer video. Still sizzling off last month’s hot and steamy “Kiss It Better” clip, RiRi gets armed and dangerous in the video for her latest Anti single, the DJ Mustard-produced “Needed Me.”

The visuals match the slapper’s strong message of independence. “Didn’t they tell you that I was a savage?” Rihanna confidently asks. “Fuck ya white horse and ya carriage.”

Meanwhile, RiRi struts in all her confident glory, draped in see-through lingerie with a gun in her hand. She slays her way through the clip, riding motorcycles through streets and making her way through a strip club where she finally comes face to face with her target before leaving him in a pool of blood.

Looks can kill in this thrilling video, showing Rihanna is not to be messed with. Watch the lethal clip below.

Rihanna ‘Kiss it Better’


Craig McDean, the director behind Rihanna’s NSFW video for ‘Kiss It Better’, has spoken about the artistic influences behind the video.

McDean is a photographer and filmmaker, who has previously shot Rihanna for magazines such as T and Vogue. In a new interview with The Fader, he opens up about the process of making the ‘Kiss It Better’ video and the leftfield ideas he and creative partner Masha Vayukova had for the clip.

The T cover film was shot in 45 minutes with one light, and a handheld camera. ‘Kiss it Better’ was shot in L.A. four months later over a very long night,” McDean is quoted as saying. “That said, the music video was based off some of the same ideas, which come from surrealism and dadaism. It all comes from you as a person, your inner inspiration and ideas you’ve had inside for a lifetime.”

McDean also spoke about the prominent use of dice in the video, saying: “Me and Masha watch the same kind of films, we look at a lot of books and art and it all merges together on the set, which is a great playground for visual experiments. Sometimes it’s all about combining things that might not make any sense, [like] subconsciousness and dreams. Dice is such a graphic and surrealistic object so it came into play.”
