The Game has been a mainstay in the world of Hip-Hop since his emergence in 2005. His consistency is commendable. While there may be many varying opinions about the way he goes about handling his business, from his use of name drops to the high number of guests on his albums, it's still undeniable that more often than not Game goes off on a rap and delivers some of the best stuff out. On Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf, Game does something different from his norm, this time aiming to spotlight his own crew Blood Money Entertainment.

Everything that entertains you isn't meant for pure entertainment. Kill The Messenger a new film by director, Michael Cuesta tells the story of journalist Gary Webb. He's a good natured man, a hard worker and a family man. Like any other man he's made some mistakes but his best days are ahead of him.

From a New York Times best-seller erotica novel to the big screen, the movie Addicted is a highly anticipated box office blockbuster. Director Bille Woodruff and a star-studded cast bring to life in vivid color this black and white page-turner that has everyone talking. The movies’ tumblr page says, “Addicted is a sexy and provocative thriller about desire and the dangers of indiscretion. Successful businesswoman Zoe Reynard (Sharon Leal) appears to have attained it all - the dream husband she loves (Boris Kodjoe), two wonderful children and a flourishing career.  As perfect as everything appears from the outside, Zoe is still drawn to temptations she cannot escape or resist.  As she pursues a secret life, Zoe finds herself risking it all when she heads down a perilous path she may not survive.”(1)

Parlé Magazine sat down with Bille Woodruff to get to know the man behind the scenes before Addicted is released in theaters nation-wide on October 10th.


Music lovers, R&B singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger released his new mixtape, Choose Up Season on October 1. He wants all his fans to know that if you’re single and like to mingle, then these tracks were written especially for you. It’s not about catching feelings and falling in love (that will come later). In short: It’s about gettin’ in where you fit in and kickin’ it together 'til the wheels fall off that thang with no strings attached. The take away is Bellinger knows that single life can oftentimes be overrated and at some point, everyone wants a partner to go through life with; but until that day comes – just choose up.

Talk That Talk is seductive and sassy, with a touch of piercing rhythms. It is as if Rihanna is content inhabiting a playground of techno beats, up-tempo Caribbean numbers and grinding synths that clatter, growl and snare, leaving a billowing image that is flirtatious and intoxicating. The opener to Talk That Talk, "You Da One," is embossed in an island melody backed with a dubstep beat provided by Dr. Luke, who has produced chart topping songs for Katy Perry and Pink. "We Found Love," drips with electronic house elements in a relaxed atmosphere. While at times, it feels like a Loud leftover due to the repetitive bubblegum jubilation, it has provided Rihanna yet another #1.
The title track features Jay-Z and a masterfully done beat provided by a sample from Notorious B.I.G. and the Stargate audio essence. Possibly “Umbrella” part deux, the song has Rihanna delivering the written words with ease.  She displays a similar feisty tone on "Cockiness (Love It)" a short rap and dancehall styled banger.  “Birthday Cake,” finds Rihanna using double entendres before cutting to the chase with her intentions.
Both "We All Want Love & "Drunk on Love," embody the same magic that Rihanna adds to her lower grooves. The former reaches hippy-esque qualities to the point where the listener can envision Rihanna dancing in fields of love amidst a clichéd message that somehow manages to work among the scorching perception Talk That Talk echoes. The latter, finds her trying to out sing the music provided.
"Farewell," is a fitting finish to an album that presents a brand new Rihanna. Gone is the morbid and dark exhibition presented on Rated R and the euphoria of Loud. What remains is a mischievous, enticing and sultry pop superstar whose adventures lie in a risqué storybook that uses a proven winning formula.
Prime Cuts:  “You Da One,” “Where Have You Been,” & “Talk That Talk”
