SUICIDE SQUAD – Comic-Con First Look – Trailer [HD] via @lisafordblog

David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD with Will Smith and Jared Leto is in theaters August 5, 2016, and all I can say is this flick will be amazing. Forbes magazine writes, "The film is about the titular squad, comprised of a number of DC Comics villains working to save the world. We’ve got Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and lots more (including some heroes, too, like Ben Affleck as Batman!)"

VINCE STAPLES – “Norf Norf” (Visual Audio) Explicit via @lisafordblog #MM

VINCE STAPLES is proving that 2015 is another 1993 .....hopefully you get what I mean... if not... 1993 is consider the best year in hip hop/Rap. NORF NORF, off of Vincent's debut album, SUMMERTIME 06, goes go harder than concrete. The progression in his music is amazing to's the epitome of a west coast sound. Rolling in a cheap whip through the ville blasting this, got that wilderness feel. Almost psychedelic in the beat. The delivery of Vince is forgiving yet aggressive, like a stoned gangster who's too high to give a f*ck about doing something, yet still apt to do it. This track has so much feel. Nice.

Blige, Common, Lisa Simone and more."

RIHANNA – “Bitch Better Have My Money” *Explicit* (Music Video) via @lisafordblog

Ambrosia For Heads writes, "On the heels of becoming the biggest selling singles artist of all-time, Rihanna is not resting on her laurels. Not one to play it safe, she releases the visuals for her boundary pushing song, “Bitch Better Have My Money.” With the same theme of the song, the visual is a story of bloodlust (literally) for someone who has wronged Bad Girl RiRi, financially. The video features blood, abduction, torture and a fair amount of nudity. Needless to say, this is not remotely safe for work."

KENDRICK LAMAR – “Alright” (Music Video) ! #Epic via @lisafordblog

This video for KENDRICK LAMAR's iconic "Alright" is beautifully directed. Cut scenes, transitions, it's theme, etc, etc, everything is on point. I haven't been this impressed with DIRECTING and PRODUCTION in a while...or with the lyricism Kendrick presents in this song. Every few years we get a rapper who is a mouth piece for the injustices faced by minorities in America. Tupac was once a mouthpiece, Nas, and lucky for us we are alive to witness a voice bold enough to do the same. Its not always about the money. Kendrick's ideology and his ability to be incredibly provocative to a generation and still remain famous is quite impressive. Kendrick carries slightly more positivity than Pac, but their ideas for the black community and hip hop as a unit are identical "Alright" is my favorite off of his "To Pimp A Butterfly" album because it is politically charged and gets at the root of why Hip Hop was lead a generation farther than they think they could go.
