My first time using After Effects. Nothing extraordinary but I think the visualizer added a nice touch.
@realaxcess talks with us about juggling teaching, coaching, and music, bringing positivity to hip-hop, the current state of hip-hop, his influences growing up, and his upcoming mixtape, Rebel Against Society.
We sit with @marvin for our PRESENTS series and talk about the different cultural influences he's had, what he wants to accomplish, and he gives his unique perspective on the role hip-hop and comic books have had in relation to his art.
In our first video in our PRESENTS series we sit down with @jlddrums23 and chop it up about how he got his start, his influences, the current state of music, and what he wants to accomplish with his music. Check it out!
New year. New team.
Just finished our first wave of changes and updates to the site. No new features or major back end stuff, but a lot of minor visual updates and improvements that'll help in maintenance and load times. Check all the changes out over on the blog:
Check out last weeks reactions to the new music that's been dropping.
We talk about the recent trend of musicians getting political, the albums of the month, what we thought about Dreamchasers 4, and discuss new releases.
October was full of great moments for the culture and we're ready to crown the best of the month for albums, trailers, and music videos.
Check out some of this weeks most talked and interesing music videos from artists like Alicia Keys, Tech N9ne, Future, KiD CuDi, Bring Me The Horizon and many more.
Check out last week's reactions to some of the music that's dropped over the last few weeks.
Game 7 of the World Series, Microsoft and Apple taking very different approaches, Tesla and DiCaprio pushing sustainability, and Instagram adds shopping.
Recent NY art shows, the Indians and Cubs, films and shows we're excited about, and I go off on a tangent about my utter disappointment with DC again.
Bad Boy Records' recent outpouring of nostalgia inducing collections and concerts has left me wondering about what could've, should've, and would've been.
Over the decades comic books have matured and developed into true mythology that we'll be passing on to our next generation; supplanting the Greek mythos.
We're back with Volume 3 of our Musicphiles podcast and we talk about the recent return of Frank Ocean, Drake taking more shots, his average sounding new releases, current music we're listening to, and dope music videos from the week. Time-stamps on the full post.
Been too long. Been way too busy with stuff on LLF but I'm back and got some updates incoming for The Collectivv
I am extremely blessed and on the grind! Interview with LLF on the way, as well as drum clinics and featured videos! #Grind
"It had so much promise and potential. It could've been the fun, lighthearted movie that DC desperately needed. But instead turned out to be another disaster. What happened to those great initial trailers?"
"Great songwriting but boring production and weak vocals often leaves me wanting to hear The Weeknd instead."
"It's familiar Atlanta hip-hop, and when it works, it provides some good turn up music."
"Phenomenal production that's sometimes plagued by weak lyricism hold the album back from greatness. Talk Back is still a pleasant surprise from Kembe X."
"More of the same from Juicy J. Turn up music, heavy trap beats, and trap lyrics. Although this time missing his signature humor, making it a longer listen than usual"
We've just reordered a bunch of stickers, bands, and cards and they'll be headed to a storefront near you very shortly! Also planning on finally getting these beanies done. Fingers crossed!
"A lot has been said about Desiigner over the past few months, some good, most negative. But let me tell why Desiigner isn't going anywhere anytime soon and is here for the long haul." Full Opinion:
Volume 2: Drake vs Everybody
Episode 4: Are comic books our new mythology?
"Star of the film "Exit Through the Gift Shop", Mr.Brainwash delivers a colorful yet lack luster exhibition full of references to the art-worlds most famous pop icons." Full Reaction:
"What's not to like about a group of interesting characters to follow, with great hip hop battles, good music, dancing, partying, and the occasional violence?" Full Reaction:
"Daniel Son; Necklace Don is the best 2 Chainz project in years. This is him at his best, with some hard hitting production and slick, witty lyrics that he's become known for. Don't write off 2 Chainz just yet." Full Reaction:
"Summer Songs 2 doesn't bring a lot of substance to the table but it has some catchy songs that will have most people vibing. Just don't go in expecting too much." Full Reaction:
"The Perfect Luv Tape is definitely not high art, but it can be a fun ride if you're able to "turn off" for a while. Lil Uzi Vert isn't the first of this new wave of "rappers" but he shows why he's one of the better ones." Full Reaction:
"Generationwhy is the debut album from Zhu and it's pure dance music that'll have you wanting to let loose. So get ready for some good vibes." Full Reaction:
"Up and coming French producer Stwo, along with some great vocals, has managed to blend together a number of different genres to create a unique sound and a project full of vibes from front to back." Full Reaction:
"Yet another studio "album" that didn't quite live up to the immense potential in it's collaborations. Like Lorenzo said in A Bronx Tale, "The saddest thing in life is wasted talent."" Full Reaction:
"Full of nostalgia, mystery, and the supernatural, it managed to blend old with new and bring on a whole new band of memorable characters worth talking about." Full Reaction:
"Great promo and an interesting way to reach out to fans and give out exclusive merchandise. If only they could have done something about the wait times and a lot of people unfortunately got left out." Full Reaction:
"A solid album that showcases Posner's ability to write a compelling song. At times suffering from a "sameness" feeling that often leaves me listening to the dance remixes more than the originals." Full Reaction:
"Some of the biggest trailers from this year's San Diego Comic-Con and our reactions to them" Full Reaction:
"Everybody Looking is everything you want from a Gucci Mane album. Hard beats, personality, and trap talk. Love him or hate him, Guwop back!" Full Reaction:
If you're in Reno or the Northern Nevada area, stop by The Basement and RAWBRY. One because they're awesome and two because you can grab some of our bands, cards, and stickers. But hurry because they're going fast!
Guess who made it out to the Summer '16 pop up shop in NY!? We did! Our Reaction incoming soon.
