I am pretty hyped for the new movie “Mid90s” directed by Jonah Hill. The trailer looks amazing and shows a heartfelt coming of age drama set in the 1990s’. Check it out below.
After much anticipation, A$AP Rocky has finally released his first single from his upcoming album Testing. “A$AP Forever” features Moby and is one of Rocky’s best songs in years. Check it out below.
J. Cole’s Dreamville has some of the most introspective and interesting rappers on the label. North Carolina rapper Lute has a striking flow that stands out on track “Morning Shift.” Lute spits on being real and trying to be the best out of his city. Check it out below.
Wild Nothing seems to make some of the most nostalgic feeling music that I have ever heard. The band’s songs seem to transport you to a time and place where everything was simply good. “Nocturne” is one of their songs that does just that with its atmospheric guitar riffs and Jack Tatum’s wistful vocals.
A few months ago, I went to check out the Kerry James Marshall Exhibit at the MET and didn’t have the chance to post the pictures of his paintings to this blog. Well, here they finally are.
The exhibition really opened my eyes to how great an artist Marshall is. A lot of the paintings I never saw before and I also saw his comic that I didn’t have the chance to take a photo of.
