Spotlight/ Shoutout: Kanye West


So here’s a name that has been tossed around a lot over the past few days/ week.
Okay, it is now known that Kanye West has some issues about running his mouth, and you’d think after winning 12 grammys he wouldn’t be the type for public outbursts. Either that or because Kanye has 12 grammys he thinks he owns the world.

Option two is more likely.

But all mouthing off aside, the honor of this week’s spotlight/ shoutout goes to Kay Dub because I feel like helpin’ a brutha out. Not.

In all seriousness, Kanye receives the s/s because I’m giving KW a shoutout for his role as an actor and work outside of the music biz. In 2008 he did an HBO special, which looks kind of blah, but it might be worth watching.

And now the real deal I want to see is his film from 2005, “State Property 2.”

This film just looks so bad-ass and gangsta I don’t think I can turn down the opportunity. Normally this isn’t my style, but this sort of “ghetto-fab” film might be promising. SP 2 also features the likes of fellow bad-asses N.O.R.E. and the most bad-assiest of bad-asses, Ol’ Dirty Bastard. (God rest his soul).

I’m interested to see it for many reasons, but mainly I'm just curious beacause I want to see something different from Kanye, especially after his name has been thrown around so much for being a mic-stealing douchey. The flick is set in Philly as three gangstas try to hold control over the streets of Brotherly Love.


It sounds like a dark, cold, gangsta film that might conclude with a lot of heart in the end. I’ll see if I can pick it up on video. And yes I know Kanye will most likely only be in the film for a short short short period of time, but I’m already set on seeing it.

QATFYG: Are you a fan of Gangsta films? Are you a fan of Wangsta films? And what would be the perfect acting role for Kanye W?

  2. Thnks C-Raw. I'm sure O.G. Mudbone's heart is yours as well. Hmm I just thought of it, I wonder if OG and Kay Dub are cousins. Could someone photoshop Kanye wearing a grill and yellow bandana real fast?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
