“This Is What You Wanted”
After linking up at The Record Krate in Raleigh, Mass Appeal joined 9th back at his studio to watch the master at work. With Charly McClain, Jermaine Jackson, and The Temprees at his disposal, the GRAMMY award-winning producer warmed up with a few quick flips before ultimately chopping up Lovemen. The final result was so crazy, Rapsody immediately hopped in the booth to bless it with a proper verse. In my opinion this is the best one yet. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Watch the trailer below.
San Francisco graffiti artist Apex never veers far from the use of color and geometric lines as tools to create an illusion of depth in his work. This unique technique assists him in the myriad of ways he throws up his tag, to how he approaches large walls for mural work that are often stripped-back but twined in sophistication. Pairing his previous tenure as an architect with his longstanding commitment to graffiti, Apex’s latest undertaking sees him paint a San Francisco office space. After surveying the surroundings, Apex settles on a large panel and opts for grey tones to complement the office’s other interior elements; white tiles, glass, brick walls. Check the video above to see the contemporary artist work up an enticing piece created with dynamic strokes and shapes, and head to his Instagram to stay updated with his art.
Well, it’s finally come. Star Wars is back! And believe it or not, I’m actually NOT that big a fan. I know, I might as well hand over my nerd card. I mean, what self respecting Sci Fi nut (which I TOTALLY am) doesn’t dig the epic space opera about dudes with 4 foot laser swords with psycic powers? I mean that sounds legitimately badass right? Well lots and lots of people sure think so! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t HATE these movies. I’ve seen the original trilogy and while I did enjoy those films, they never quite got me to LOVE them. Can’t really explain it. So, the hype over The Force Awakens has not really given me the “Star Wars fever” that has run rampant. With that being said, I came across this video and immediately LOVED IT!!! Not because it’s Star Wars, but because it’s a brief retelling of the first three movies using old school Nintendo “8-bit” graphics. Not only that, but each “movie” uses a different 8-bit NES game to tell its story. “A New Hope” seems to be a modification of the classic The Legend Of Zelda. The other two movies use the perennial thumb-busters Mega Man and Golden Axe. Definitely worth a watch if you’re into some old childhood nostalgia around this crazy time of year!!!
