Hereditary is a supernatural horror film written and directed by Ari Aster. The film is hard to summarise as the plot involves lots of elements; the death of a family member, an accident and death of another family member, the associated grief, heartbreak, and despondency that comes with […]
You may have heard of Afrikan Boy (real name Olushola Ajose) either from his collaborations with M.I.A. (“Hussel” or “Paper Planes” Remix) or his surprise hit “Lidl”, but there’s much more music by this artist. Ajose’s sound is a juxtaposition of Grime, Hip-Hop, Afrobeats, World Sounds, even Bassline […]
Denzel Curry today releases his fourth studio album titled ZUU, an album filled with loud, bass-heavy, brash production akin to the heyday of the Miami music scene from the 1980s. With a Chevy Impala and a late-80s-slash-early-90s logo (some say it resembles Poison Clan’s logo) even the album […]
Forming like a contemporary Boot Camp Clik, the super-group Beast Coast (consisting of The Flatbush Zombies, The Underacheivers, and some of the members of Pro Era) today release the album Escape From New York to accompany their tour of the same name. The term “Beast Coast” has been […]
Live Fast Die Whenever is the latest release from the $uicideboy$, this time with Blink-182 member Travis Barker and some help by Munky of Korn-fame. This EP is thankfully much more focussed than their debut studio album I Want To Die In New Orleans and I’m pleased to […]
There’s no doubt that Guy Ritchie’s films have been hit and miss; there was of course the classics Lock, Stock, And Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch and there was the average-and-overrated Sherlock Holmes but there was also the downright terrible Swept Away and King Arthur. Seemingly abandoning tales […]
John Wick (now retroactively titled John Wick: Chapter 1) is an extremely overrated film. Released in 2014, it answered the question: what would it look like if a stuntman made a movie? Directed by stunt-guy Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad (who was also responsible for mediocre […]
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is a somewhat enjoyable action-thriller but it’s not as rewarding as most reviewers have made it out to be. After reading what all the critics had to say, I was assuming that this, the third in the John Wick film franchise would […]
The $uicideboy$, a Hip-Hop duo from New Orleans, have been making music for a while now, releasing numerous EPs and mixtapes over the past few years. If you’ve never heard their music before, I can only describe it as a mixture of Trap, Horrorcore, Cloud Rap, Scream Rap, […]
In 1993, after two young boys murdered a toddler named Jamie Bulger, the mainstream media were in a fervent rush to label the entire generation as “evil”. Even though there were similar killers such as Mary Bell in the ’60s, in the ’90s people began demonising the tail-end […]
From ex-Punk band The Beastie Boys (and Def Jam bandmates Run DMC) shouting their rhymes into the mic to Onyx and M.O.P. building on this style by yelling their violent lyrics over hardcore beats, an element of Rock has always been present in Hip-Hop music. Artists ranging from […]
The internet is supposed to be a wealth of knowledge, right? So is it possible for there to be almost zero information about something, let’s say a musician or group? Well, surprisingly yes. I was recently organising my music collection and I realised that I know almost nothing […]
