Rampage: World Tour: The Video Game: The Movie, With The Rock? What?


Dwayne Johnson announced that the teaser trailer for Rampage would be with us today, and as promised, you can get your first look at some footage from the upcoming video game adaptation below.  The movie will be an adaptation of the classic arcade game, which focuses on three animals (a wolf, a crocodile and a gorilla) who fall victim to evil genetic editing, rapidly changing every strand of their DNA so they grow, evolve and mutate.  Johnson’s character is charged with tracking them down, but the gorilla just so happens to be a friend of his named George.  I really want to be excited about this movie, but it just look like San Andreas mixed with the new Jumanji and a splish-splash of Negan.  But let us know what you think by leaving a comment.

Calvin Harris and Dizzee Rascal team up in the official music video for their brand new song “Hype“!

The 31-year-old English rapper takes on a majority of the screen time in the Emil Nava-directed clip, while the 32-year-old Scottish DJ makes quick cameos throughout.

Check the video below!

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.

The Technics SL-1200 Turntable Returns


 

turntable4

In 2010, Panasonic made the odd decision to stop producing the Technics SL-1200MK2, a turntable that’s as much a part of pop culture as it is one of the most revered and reliable ever made. DJs, who depended on the 1200’s powerful direct drive motor and solid tone arm to manipulate the sound of records without skipping, had to rely on the second hand market or alternative brands if they needed a new scratch machine.

The legendary Technics SL-1200 turntable has been a mainstay of the DJ scene for decades now, but the tanklike direct-drive turntable has also long had a quiet reputation for sound quality as well. And for the 50th anniversary of the SL-1200, Technics is releasing two new “Grand Class” models aimed at audiophiles: the aluminum-cased SL-1200G and the magnesium limited anniversary edition SL-1200GAE, of which only 1,200 will be produced. (Get it?)

Apart from the case, the new models all have new “high-dampening tonearm” and a “three-layered turntable,” which are words that audiophiles who buy a limited edition magnesium record player are sure to be excited about. There’s also a new microprocessor controlled direct-drive system which eliminates something called “cogging,” a scrouge so terrible that Technics devotes a full paragraph to it in the press release. Here is that paragraph. Behold its majesty:

Direct_Drive_Turntable_System_SL_1200GAE_7.0

Direct drive turntable systems have been beloved by HiFi enthusiasts since their birth in 1972. However, one problem that direct-drive systems have always faced was sound quality degradation caused by ‘cogging’, or tiny vibrations of the motor and rotational speed fluctuations. However, by combining the knowledge and expertise gained as the originator of direct-drive turntable systems with a newly developed coreless direct-drive motor without iron core, this ‘cogging’ can be eliminated. Any potential minute motor vibrations are suppressed even further by high-precision rotary positioning sensors guided by a microprocessor controlled system; a feature unique to the new Technics turntable.

Vinyl record sales have been booming lately, so it’s not at all surprising that Technics is capitalizing on the SL-1200′s mystique here — we’re actually expecting to see a few high-end turntables at CES 2016. No word on pricing, but expect these to be crazy expensive when the 1200GAE arrives in summer and the 1200G hits late in the year. (Also, 50 years’ worth of SL-1200s are also available on eBay and Craigslist in virtually every city in the world, if you’re that impatient.)

 

 

The Sexiest Toyota You Will Ever See.


2016-Toyota-Supra-front toyota-ft1-1

The Toyota FT-1 concept is a pure performance, track-focused sports car model created by CALTY Design Research, Toyota’s North American Design branch.  The FT-1 concept is a symbol that captures elements of the emotion and energy we can expect to see in future Toyota vehicles designs.  Its design is heavily influenced by Toyota’s long sports car tradition that includes vehicles such as 2000GT, Celica, Supra & most recently, FT-86.

The news about Toyota and BMW building cars together isn’t new, as the two companies finalized the partnership in January of 2013, but thanks to the Nikkei Asian Review, we’ve got some rumors as to what the two companies have been working on. Those plans revolve around the next-generation BMW Z4 and a revival of the famed Toyota Supra… aka the Toyota FT1.

Batman vs. The Ninja Turtles?


bmtmnt_cv1_ds_mtv_1449253978_161777

As a child growing up in the 90’s one of my favorite cartoons/franchises/collection action figures sets/anything in the world was the ninja turtles.  Those toys and cartoons dominated the landscape in the way Jordan’s dominate urban footwear, and the Turtles still have massive nostalgic value to this day.  On the other hand, since the 90’s and the original Michael Keaton Batman film and all the subsequent films, books, and events, people all over the world have grown to become fans of the Dark Knight in droves.  Because the Turtles are technically a Mirage property, and Batman stays squarely in the clutches of DC, this crossover is one people many people never saw coming (much like the protagonists in its’ pages).  Check the synopsis below, and look out for the books in stores and online as soon as December 9th.

DC Comics and IDW team up for the crossover you never saw coming as two of the greatest entertainment icons meet for the first time. In Gotham City, a series of deadly raids leads Batman to believe he’s up against a group of highly trained ninjas known as the Foot Clan. Somehow, they’ve crossed over to another dimension and are determined to take advantage of the situation while looking to get back home. But they haven’t come alone: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are hot on their trail. Get ready for excitement as heroes and villains from both worlds clash and team up in an epic battle that threatens the very fabric of reality.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Official Trailer – “For Prim”


https://i0.wp.com/nerdist.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Hunger-Games-Mockingjay-Poster-09162015.jpg

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) didn’t step into the Hunger Games arena with the intention of changing Panem and teaching President Snow a lesson. She volunteered as tribute to take the place of her sister Prim (Willow Shields), and by doing so, she likely saved Prim’s life. Though they’re technically siblings, Katniss became Prim’s primary caretaker in the years after their father’s death. A new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 reminds us how important the relationship between Katniss and Prim has been to the series and to Panem.

The two minutes of footage barely hints at the dark road ahead–and yes, the worst is far from over–and instead looks back, beginning with the fateful moment when Katniss stepped onto the stage in District 12. She fought tooth and nail to stay alive for Prim, and once Katniss survived her first experience in the arena, Prim was a driving force that kept her moving forward. Prim grew up, became a rock for Katniss, and pointed out what her older sister couldn’t see: Katniss had become a symbol of hope, her actions inspiring citizens across the districts.

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!

Jidenna heads to the West Coast in the remix video for his summer hit “Classic Man.”  Once he touched down among the palm trees, he links up with Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar.

 

The remixed visual features appearances from Janelle Monáe, Ty Dolla $ign, and Hit-Boy make cameos.

Ciara turns up the heat in the steamy video for her Jackie single “Dance Like We’re Making Love,” which premiered on Sony’s Times Square billboard. The R&B chanteuse reunites with Dave Meyers, who directed her video for “Lose Control” with Missy Elliott. Ciara is fully re-embracing her sex-goddess status. In the new video for Jackie single “Dance Like We’re Making Love,” Ciara does just that, chilling seductively — yes, she can make chilling look seductive — in a pool, dancing around a beautiful mansion with her lover, and slowly shedding her clothes as she makes her way to the bedroom.

Pia Mia- Do It Again feat. Chris Brown and Tyga- Official Video


Pia Mia has been making a wave or the past couple years and seems to have reached a new height with her current hit single ‘Do It Again”. The video was shot at the beach and features Chris Brown and Tyga, who also appeared on the track.

“Getting to do this record with Chris and Tyga was a very special experience for me,” Pia told Rap-Up. “They’re both artists that I love and have listened to for a long time, and getting to see how they work in the studio is inspiring to me.”

The mix of the two rappers and her strong vocals are a great combination for the track.  Tyga couldn’t help but give her a major shoutout today on his social media. “Congrats @princesspiamia on the new video#DoItAgain,” he wrote, along with a still from the video.

 

 

 

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron (Official Trailer).


avengers-age-of-ultron-poster-110307

Although it was supposed to premiere during next week’s new episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” Marvel Studios has gone ahead and officially released the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer following an online leak.  “Dammit, Hydra,” Marvel tweeted in response to the rapid spread of the leaked trailer.  Thankfully, you can now check out a wholly official version in the player below along with an all-new teaser poster.

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

 

The Isolated J Avery.


-2When it comes to the current state of Hip Hop, it’s my firm belief that certain artists have certain lanes.  You’d be as likely to see a collaboration between Lil Boosie and Eminem as you are to see Amanda Bynes win an Oscar right now.  They’re just NOT in the same lane, and probably never will be.  That being said, there are a very elite sect of emcee’s that are capable transcending typical norms, and gaining a solid foothold in any style of music you could imagine.  J Avery, an artist who’s been on many a radar (and only getting better as the days go by) is a perfect example of an entertainer possessing this rare trait.   Super dope lyrical content combined with a mellifluous flow, are skills that are hard to come by when looking at any artist, but Avery’s ability to stand out on any track is what classifies him as a truly a-typical artist.  Check some of his latest work below.

The next project on Avery’s plate is the10 track release titled ‘Isolated’.  The project features Symba, Jay Ant, Phantom, and many others.  To get a better look at J Avery and his music, take a look at JAveryMusic.com and stay tuned for Isolated.

DJ Storm & DJ Sarah Togah – Call Me Maybe Remix.


 

Its always good to get together with friends in the same profession as you to exchange ideas, and get a fresh perspective on your craft.  With my good friend DJ Sarah Togah, we don’t do any of that, we just sit around and talk about ignorant and/or unnecessary mashups that would make us laugh.  During a long phone conversation, we came up with the idea of mixing the two styles of music that we get stereotyped against the most, and what came out was one of the funniest remixes to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” in existence. Check the method below.

Kendrick Lamar Big Boy’s Neighborhood Freestyle


Kendrick Lamar dropped his debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city. The young rapper celebrated the release in his hometown of Los Angeles and stopped by Power 106’s studios to spit a freestyle for “Big Boy’s Neighborhood.” The flow ends up lasting five minutes, and in that time he raps about fucking your mom without a condom, The Lakers, and living in Compton (among other topics).

The Dark Knight Rises DVD.


As it continues to bring in no shortage of cash in cinemas around the world, attention is nonetheless slowly turning as to when Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, is heading to DVD and Blu-ray. And we might just have the first hint of an answer.

Amazon Germany is generally one of the first to go live with a release date, and it’s now got both the DVD and Blu-ray of The Dark Knight Rises up for pre-order. The artwork isn’t finalised, but the site is listing Friday 30th November 2012 as when to expect the film. That’s not generally used as a holding date for Amazon Germany either, which tends to use 28th December as a list date for titles where it’s not got a firm release date hammered down.

Friday isn’t a traditional day to release a DVD/Blu-ray into the world, granted, but Warner Bros has made high profile exceptions in the past. The other rumored date that has been doing the rounds is Friday 7th December, but Amazon Germany is the first shopping site we’ve seen that’s officially come forward with any date.

And take a look at an amazing fan made trailer for the entire Dark Knight Trilogy…
