Lucien Parker has been putting in work for quite some time now. The Minneapolis artist (WI livin) is as soulful as they come showing off his versatility on every track. His latest project, Black Sheep, has been making the rounds as of late and we’ve got to say; it’s pretty damn good. Laid back, but hard hitting instrumentals provide a perfect back drop for Lucien’s flow. His vocals cruise over the records effortlessly, it’s obvious he’s no rookie. Our favorite tracks feature production from Geek Session, but there are plenty of solid records on the project. Check out Black Sheep for yourself above and keep an eye out for more from Lucien Parker.
After dropping his EP JustAteTheBootyAndIFeelGreat (!), Mouse Sucks has steadily released visuals from the album, the most recent being “WaitingonthatTxtfromPervana.” The oft-unabashed Mouse is a little more reserved on this record, but shows off a plethora of cadences with ease. A love story of sorts, Mouse professes what could be if only he got that text. Check out the video for “WaitingonthattextfromPervana” above and stay tuned for more from Mouse Sucks.
Houston MC, Slihmm, is back with yet another free verse. Known for his lyrical prowess, the young artist releases his music in minute long pieces rather than full records. Slihmm and Chance Schreiber are building some nice chemistry together, the sampled production allows for Slihmm to show off a variety of flows throughout the verse. This is a solid track from Slihmm, however, we can’t help but want more from the kid. Hopefully there’s a full length project in the future, until then we’ll continue to keep an eye on the young MC.
Location: 501 Cedar Avenue, Minneapolis When: Saturday, July 2nd @ 9PM

A few of Minnesota’s dopest MCs will head out on tour starting tomorrow, the trio will embark throughout the Mediterranean and even make a stop in London. Muja Messiah, RP Hooks, and Eli The Profit are all known individually for their abilities behind the mic, so it’ll be interesting to see whether this tour spawns a project.

Same-subject movies coming out at the same time aren’t necessarily unheard of; Deep Impact and Armageddon (May and July, 1998), Dante’s Peak and Volcano (February and April 1997), Mission to Mars and Red Planet (March and November 2000), The Illusionist and The Prestige (August and October 2006). Now a new pair of movies will be joining the list, focused around the life of famous murder-mystery author Agatha Christie. Paramount has signed Oscar-nominee Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man, Birdman or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) to star as Christie during her 11 day disappearance in 1926. Sony, however, has signed Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) to star in Sony’s production, which focuses on the author’s youthful days as a pro-feminist supporter.

A new drama from writer/director Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, The Hunger Games) titled Free State of Jones is now playing in theaters. The film follows the true story of Newton Knight, a farmer in Civil-War era Mississippi who abandoned the Confederate Army and formed a militia consisting of both white farmers and African-Americans who took over and declared Jones County an independent state. Ross adapted the screenplay from author Victoria Bynum’s The Free State of Jones: Mississippi’s Longest Civil War, although there are numerous publications of Knight’s stance in Jones County. Appearing as Newton Knight is Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar, Dallas Buyer’s Club), who is joined onscreen by Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Concussion, Jupiter Ascending), Mahershala Ali (House of Cards, The Place Beyond the Pines), Keri Russell (The Americans, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Christopher Berry (Django Unchained, 12 Years a Slave), and Jacob Lofland (Mud, The Scorch Trials). This is definitely a lesser-known portion of American history, but one that is definitely intriguing, although I will say that the trailer reads a bit like The Patriot. If you’re looking for an evening out this week, keep this one on your list. The trailer is available here on MADE.
