“Famous Last Words” is a great song by Hip-Hop duo Word A’Mouth which consists of rappers Block McCloud and Mr. Metaphor. The track which is produced by Will Tell is included in the Rawkus Records compilation album Lyricist Lounge Volume One, and when I first heard it back […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
A few months ago I stumbled across a YouTube video for a track called “After Dark” by Mr.Kitty. A fan had edited the little-known 1991 film Career Opportunities to the song resulting in a music video that was very believable, in fact the first time I saw it […]
Nobody (other than perhaps Necro) has remained true to the Horrorcore sub-genre (and indeed his original style) as Brotha Lynch Hung. Back when Horrorcore was at its heights (the post-Niggamortis/6 Feet Deep era) Brotha Lynch Hung’s album Season Of Da Sicness blended G-Funk with horror coupled with a […]
Cam’ron (real name Cameron Ezike Giles) has had a long-running and impressive career but he isn’t mentioned by the media as much as his peers. From Killa Kam’s Children Of The Corn days (with Bloodshed, McGruff, Mase, and Big L) to the Diplomats/Dipset era (with Juelz Santana, Jim […]
Over the years, this website has received requests for reviews (there’s a certain company that sends me links to my email on an almost weekly basis) but I’m no yes-man, so I’m only going to give props to shit I genuinely like. Back in the day, I was […]
You didn’t need to be a breakdancer to enjoy Breakin’, you didn’t need to be a skateboarder to like Thrashin’, you didn’t need to know much about Hip-Hop to find Fear Of A Black Hat hilarious, and you didn’t need to be a Rock music fan to laugh […]
Along with movie soundtrack samples, Hip-Hop artists (along with Grime, Garage, and Dance musicians) have all sampled TV theme tunes and made some classic music in the process. Here’s my list of the best Hip-Hop tracks that make use of televisual sampling… 20 “Countdown” (sampling Countdown) By Young […]
Michael Jackson was one of the most talented artists of all time. From his Motown days with The Jackson 5 to his solo stuff with Epic records (and even his time at Sony) no other musician’s discography is filled with such varied and original music. Often called the […]
I must confess, I haven’t read Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel Dune. If someone says the word “Dune” to me, all that comes to mind is the complete mess of a movie by David Lynch. Having only seen the 1984 film, I wasn’t looking forward to another adaptation, but, […]
Flashback is such an underrated film. When I saw that it had a 55% score on Rotten Tomatoes, I had to write about. Also known as The Education Of Fredrick Fitzell, this movie seems to be the Marmite of contemporary cinema; you’ll either love it or hate it. […]
John Carpenter’s Halloween is a horror classic. Sometimes incorrectly credited as the first slasher movie (Black Christmas beats it by 4 years) Halloween is still genre-defining. Its popularity directly lead to all the Friday The 13‘s and various other “killer versus teenagers” flicks popular in the 1980’s and […]
Delayed by creative differences, then by Covid-19, seeing a change of director, not to mention a couple of re-writes, No Time To Die could either be a turd that’s been over-polished or a film that’s been honed and perfected. If you remember the last film in the franchise, […]
A strange thing happened to me last year. During the first Coronavirus lockdown, I decided to watch movies I hadn’t seen and listen to music I’ve never heard. Randomly going through YouTube and Spotify one day, I came across ‘Til Tuesday, a new wave pop band from Boston, […]
