Album Review: Vince Staples – Ramona Park Broke My Heart

Throughout the litany of nonchalantly grim lyrics Vince Staples has delivered over the past 10 years, one constant has remained: his symbiotic relationship with Ramona Park. Staples announced his purpose for rapping on 2013’s Stolen Youth, a collaboration with the late Mac Miller, rhyming, “I’m here to tell the world I’m from Ramona Park / diving in the deep water like I know the sharks / climbing in the king’s daughter I deserved the crown / they weren’t fucking with ya boy, but they heard me n

Smooth Like "Butter": How BTS' GRAMMY-Nominated Mega Hit Came To Be

What does it take to create a hit song? Musicians, songwriters and producers have attempted to answer this question since the inception of the music industry and the beginning of the pop star. While some songwriters and producers feel hit records can be created through a precise science or formulaic approach, others claim that hit records are created based on feeling. Songwriter, producer and A&R Rob Grimaldi advocates for the latter, using BTS' "Butter" as his evidence. "Butter" is the second E

Who Is Moon Knight?: The Origin Of Marc Spector

Who Is Moon Knight?: The Origin Of Marc Spector The MCU has expanded. There is no secret that the MCU as it existed in phase one is long gone; as we push through the tenth anniversary of the first time that the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assembled on our big screen, we stand before an MCU almost unfamiliar to where we began. Ironman is dead. Captain America is literally resting in peace. Black Widow is dead. Hawkeye is now deaf and has taken a younger Hawkeye under his wing. Thor is with the Guar

Ice T & Snoop Dogg Could Join Forces To Reboot "Def Jam" Fighting Game

So when it was announced that famous Kentucky-rapper Jack Harlow was cast as the lead in the reboot of 1992's hit movie White Men Can't Jump, the Twitter
