On Our Radar: KAS (November)

KAS

The South side of Minneapolis has always had a rich hip hop culture including artists like Atmosphere, Eyedea, P.O.S, and more recent mainstays (by comparison) like Greg Grease & Metasota. Known for it’s lyrical prowess and social commentary, the South side has long been underrated in it’s efforts to legitimize Minneapolis as a true hot bed for dope hip hop. This ongoing struggle may be coming to an end sooner than we think, as 2016 looms ahead there is a whole cast of young up and comers who are ready to inject more diversity into the South side’s ever growing landscape. At 21 KAS is one of those artists, a triple threat of sorts; the kid produces, raps/writes, and sings. Over the last 6 months or so KAS has quickly amassed a following with a steady stream of dope singles on his soundcloud. After absolutely shutting down the Red Sea & Weird High 2 (same night) last weekend, it is now clear that he’s someone to keep an eye on. On our radar no doubt, check out a few of his tracks below and stay tuned for more.



Finding Novyon – #TheFoodNetwork

Food Network

It’s here ladies and gentlemen. The kid Finding Novyon recently released his new project #TheFoodNetwork for all of our listening pleasure. With a deafening buzz that has him facing a sold out show at the Hollywood Palladium alongside Big Sean and Mick Jenkins, Finding Novyon continues to ride the wave. Novy brings the energy right from the start on #TheFoodNetwork with Travis Gorman’s production at peak performance. With features from Allan Kingdom, Metasota, dylAn, Devon Reason, Dwynell Roland and a whole cast of co-productions; #TheFoodNetwork is a family affair. In my opinion this is Finding Novyon’s best work to date, he continues to progress with each new release and this time he’s really set himself apart from the pack. Peep #TheFoodNetwork below and make sure to check out the official music video for “Lots.”

MADE Previews: “FACES”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


So we go to a ton of shows and parties and shit, over the years we’ve compiled massive amounts of photographs with a lot of them left to collect dust in our vaults. We’ve decided to start sharing more and more of these photographs via a new series titled “FACES.” These albums will mostly feature behind the scenes photos of artists, but it will by NO means be limited to that, literally unfiltered scenes. Since we just finished up a string of shows last week we thought why not kick things off now? Check out a quick preview of “FACES” above and keep an eye out for more.

New Boxing Drama ‘Creed’ With Michael B. Jordan Now Playing In Theaters

A new boxing drama titled Creed is opening in theaters today, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Writer/director Ryan Coogler (The Sculptor, Fruitvale Station) pitched the script to Sylvester Stallone (Rambo, The Expendables) about a semi-sequel in the Rocky film series that finds former Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa mentoring the son of his old friend and rival Apollo Creed. Stallone will be reprising the role of Balboa alongside lead actor Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) as Adonis Creed, with actors Tesse Thompson (When A Stranger Calls, Selma), Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show, Just Wright), and Ritchie Coster (American Gangster, The Dark Knight) appearing in the supporting cast. This will be the first time Stallone has reprised his Oscar-nominated role since 2006’s Rocky Balboa, which he also directed. Ryan Coogler directed this new film from a script he cowrote with Aaron Covington (The Mischievous Case of Cordelia Botkin, Potter’s Field). Personally, the fact that Stallone is once again on the big screen is really upsetting, and as far as seeing a new boxing movie, the studios should really have pushed for a later release considering the already forgettable Southpaw just opened in theaters not even six months ago. That being said, Michael B. Jordan is an excellent actor and Coogler received high marks for Fruitvale Station at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013. Maybe if Stallone’s screen time is kept to a minimal it might turn out alright, but chances are I won’t be the first to see it, so you’ll have to let me know.

Also opening in theaters today is Victor Frankenstein with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, The Woman in Black) and James McAvoy (Wanted, X-Men: First Class). Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

New Amy Berg Documentary ‘Janis: Little Girl Blue’ Opening In Theaters Friday November 27th

A new music-documentary from director Amy Berg (West of Memphis, An Open Secret) titled Janis: Little Girl Blue is opening in theaters this Friday, November 27th. The last we heard news of this project was back in October, when it was to be headlined (among other contenders like Trumbo, Black Mass, and Spotlight) at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it was an Offical Selection winner. The film also received Official Selection at this years Festival de Rio and BFI London Film Festival. Featuring Cat Power (V for Vendetta, Boyhood) as the narrator, the film takes a close look at the life of blues/rock-n-roll star Janis Joplin and her roll as a woman and key figure in the Rock-n-Roll movement through personal letters she wrote to friends, family, and fellow musicians. A barrage of home-movies, interviews, and documentary footage accompanies the letters read by Power to give us a touching and intimate look at the life of the twentieth century icon. If you’re a fan of Joplin’s, classic rock, blues, or the 60s in general, I would definitely recommend seeing this one if you can. For other great concert footage of Joplin, check out Woodstock: The Director’s Cut, which documents the famous Woodstock Music Festival held in the summer of 1969 and featured some of the most popular artists of the time, including Jimmy Hendrix, Joan Baez, The Who, Santana, Joe Cocker, Richie Havens, Arloo Guthrie, Sly and the Family Stone, and Crosby, Stills, and Nash, among many more. Enjoy!
