N.W.A. – “Straight Outta Compton” (Movie Trailer) via @lisafordblog
For me, the jury is still out on how I feel about an upcoming N.W.A. movie. Some say that it's a story long overdue, but I feel that once they start making movies about famous rap figures, it diminishes my memory of the era. I don't know. This is just how I feel about it. F. Gary Gray is the director, so I'm sure the film is going to be hardcore and worth watching regardless. Anticipation is definite.
KENDRICK LAMAR Performs “Untitled” On The Colbert Report – New Music!! (VIDEO) via @lisafordblog
Let's all pray that KENDRICK LAMAR drops his album on Christmas without warning. That would be crazy! Artists like Kdot is why I consider Hip Hop to be the "master genre" of all genres. The pure poetry of it all. Words are so important, so incredibly amazing in rap, other genres just can't compare. Kendrick will be a legend up there with Biggie, Nas, Em, 2pac, Rakim, and the rest. Could even outshine them all in due time. His song, "Untitled" is amazing.
