“See, I got a lot to say and I ain‘t afraid to say it,” declares Def Jam signee Jhené Aiko on the track “Sailing Not Selling,” taken from her mixtape SailingSoul(s). Those statement lyrics have become an indispensable trademark for the former B2K associate turned R&B flower child.  Her 2011 breakout mixtape would eventually catch the ears of iconic producer and Def Jam Executive VP Dion “No I.D.” Wilson, who signed Aiko to ARTium/Def Jam, an exclusive label venture between the producer andIsland Def Jam.

Following 2003’s Elf, it was safe to assume Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy became next in a long string of blockbuster successes for Will Ferrell. The film stared Ferrell as the extremely egotistical news reporter dealing with the arrival of female co-anchor Veronica Corningstone played by Christina...

There hasn’t been more a suitable MC to represent Memphis post-Three 6 Mafia than Yo Gotti. Even before releasing his major label debut Live From The Kitchenlast year, Mr. Mario Mims earned the respect of hip-hop contemporaries, including Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Wale and Nicki Minaj. Going from drug dealing to selling out shows domestically, Yo Gotti took his experiences from the street and applied them to music–both artistically and commercially. He hopes to continue to grow on both ends of the spectrum when he releases I Am November 19th. The first joint venture between his CMG imprint and Epic records, Yo Gotti hopes to transition smoothly from one of hip-hop’s rising stars to label owner.

"Philomena is an intricate film of self-discovery, where demons can be tackled in part through the help of unconventional people. A clever film that flawlessly controls all moods, Frears’ direction shines along with Coogan and Dench’s “like fine wine” acting chops." Read my first film review for...

New Orleans native Dee-1 has come a long way from making the decision to drop his full time position as a school teacher to becoming one of hip-hop’s most positive and lyrically effective MCs. With each project released, Mr. David Augustine, Jr. continues to evolve artistically at an effortless pace.
