Telling anyone's story can be tricky because it can go wrong in a number of ways. From focusing on the wrong details or overlooking something that viewers were looking forward to. When the subject is someone like Jimi Hendrix, who few really knew, it gets that much more difficult. Though he is well regarded as one of the greatest guitarist ever, his career really only spanned 4 years. That gives you a specific time period to focus on, but it also demands that you show why he deserves all the acclaim in huge chunks.


Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson star in No Good Deed, the tale of what happens when a criminal escapes from prison and finds his way into an unsuspecting woman's home. We've seen this story before but with a full African-American cast, and no Tyler Perry involvement, it feels like a fresh idea and a worthy watch. Plus the stars make for pretty great eye candy, which I think the production team knew would be good for the big screen.


I was first introduced to Jhené Aiko on Kendrick Lamar's "Growing Apart." Her voice is gentle and somewhat tinged with a sultriness that often encroaches on cutting aggression. Aiko understands where to emphasize her voice, wrapping it around the lyrics to achieve a hypnotic mix of hip hop and R&B. Souled Out, the debut from the singer is made up of mid-temp melodies that emerge as freestyles, rather than songs. This is not a bad thing because Aiko has stated that her process of recording music is one of letting it unfold rather than rushing.

Originality is such a hard thing to come by these days that it’s no wonder you’ll see so many movies, TV shows and music that look and sound the same.
 When is the last time you heard a song or movie that you couldn’t compare to something else prior? Probably never. That doesn’t mean that originality or creativity has died, but just means that people have a brand new way of seeing things. One of the greatest movies of all times, Star Wars is often compared to Star Trek. They have forums of geeks and nerds sighting the familiarities between these two, I’ll save you the time and say that I’ve seen all the Star Wars series and none of the Star Trek franchise despite their many TV shows and spin-off movies but I'm aware of how they tend to overlap each other in some aspects.


Blacc Hollywood is the fifth studio album from Wiz Khalifa - the rapper known for creating chill songs about getting high and living the high life. Being more of a fan of his mixtapes because he seems to offer more impactful, heavy-hitting rhymes on those, listening to Blacc Hollywood solidified my opinion even further.


Fresh off the stage of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, performing alongside Beyoncé, Alvester Martin—dancer, singer, and songwriter has been accustomed to a dim limelight for many years as a back up dancer for several top celebrities.  But it’s the bright spotlight he better get ready for!


 
 

 

 

A #1 album is not enough?  How about Being the first female solo artist to go platinum wasn't enough? The jury is out on whether or not those feats were enough to keep Da Brat in your conscience over the past 2 1/2 years; gone but hopefully not forgotten, while serving a 3 years sentence for an assault conviction after hitting a waitress over the head with a champagne bottle.
I think they call that living out your rhymes, you remember the female gangstress- the year was 1994 and the speakers bumped, "its the B to the R - A-T and I'm so......so, so, funkdafied". Piggy backing off the success of Kriss Kross which ushered in a new sound, perpetuated the new Black capital- Atlanta; the city and its artists have a done a very good job to date sustaining its place as a hit factory.  At this point in time, the same may not be expected of Da Brat, but I could imagine the only thing she is concerned with right now is freedom and I can't blame her. Music is a passion for many, but nothing can compare to freedom of movement, of thought, of actions and the ability to enjoy some of the little things that we take for granted so often.
Music will go on, and maybe she will reinvigorate her career; I'm sure we'll get a clue in due time of what's to come for the artist, but for now let's just celebrate the return of the person- WELCOME HOME to DA BRAT.
