Video Premiere: "Holy Grail" By Jay Z

Jay Z continues to change the rap game with new rules. His latest video "Holy Grail" becomes the first major music video to premiere on facebook.

"What we’re doing with Jay Z today is really exciting and we think emblematic of the evolution for music and how musicians can connect with their fans," says Nick Grudin, head of content partnerships for Facebook. "And we think that is particularly evident in Jay Z’s approach here, which will really allow him to go direct to a massive and instant global audience. It's something that only Facebook I think can really deliver in this way, given the scale of the audiences musicians have and the global nature of those audiences and the social dynamics of what happens when they engage on Facebook."

Grand Theft Auto V: The Official Trailer

Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

TDE Officially Signs SZA

We've got some exciting news to share with you all,  an artist we featured last year here on has officially been signed by TDE (Top Dawg Entertaintment). Congratulations SZA!

Press Release:

Top Dawg Entertainment announces the debut of their newest signee, SZA. Known for her airy coos and glitter-trappings, the Alternative songstress shares a snippet video to narrate the new affiliation.
SZA made her debut with her 2012 release See.SZA.Run. Her follow up EP S marked the first installment of her trilogy series, soon to be matched with Z. Her upcoming Z EP marks a progressive point in SZA’s career, experimenting with new wondrous sounds as showcased in her newest singles “Julia” and “Teen Spirit.”
The Wu-loving songbird draws from an eclectic catalog of influences like Bj√∂rk, Coltrane and various Brazilian Jazz staples. This explains her natural ability to be emotionally provoking, while bending the confines of typical “genre’s.” As SZA likes to remind any hasty critics, she is not R&B, and it won’t be long before her Fall release Z affirms that.

Get familiar with SZA's music on her soundcloud page:

Trailer: Blackfish

Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000-pound orcas, or “killer whales,” soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet, in our contemporary lore this mighty black-and-white mammal is like a two-faced Janus—beloved as a majestic, friendly giant yet infamous for its capacity to kill viciously. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who—unlike any orca in the wild—has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what exactly went wrong?

Shocking, never-before-seen footage and riveting interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orca’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity over the last four decades, and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.
