Review: Wiz Khalifa Brings More Of The Same On ‘Blacc Hollywood’

August 20th, 2014 9:21am EDT
Wiz Khalifa, 'Blacc Hollywood'
If nothing else comes across on a Wiz Khalifa album, the MC’s love of weed does. It seems as if no Wiz song is a go without a reference to smoking. While the honesty is appreciated, it is often overplayed, growing tiresome album in and album out. On third album of note, Blacc Hollywood, weed definitely remains part of Wiz. His shallowness as an MC as well, dominates his latest album. Ultimately, Wiz Khalifa is who he is, and nothing more.

“Hope” opens Blacc Hollywood, featuring up and coming artist Ty Dolla $ign. Chevy Woods provides a lengthy intro before Wiz ever spits one bar. Ulti...

Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Music Video Is All Butts, All The Time

August 20th, 2014 9:07am EDT
Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj's highly anticipated "Anaconda" video has finally arrived, and as expected it features a lot of butts.

The hip hop starlet's latest single draws off of Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" and revolves around Minaj's posterior, often displayed in a thong. Minaj is obviously proud of her big booty, and at one point criticizes all the skinny girls for not having one.

The very sexual video starts off in the jungle ("Anaconda," get it?) and includes Minaj working out with some weights as back-up dancers do their own exercises next to her. There's also a moment where she squeezes whip c...

Review: The Gaslight Anthem Show Consistency On ‘Get Hurt’
After a two-year hiatus, rock band The Gaslight Anthem return with their fifth studio album, Get Hurt. Get Hurt follows a high watermark for the band, led by vocalist and guitarist Brian Fallon. 2012 effort Handwritten easily ranked among the best rock albums that year. Get Hurt maintains consistency and enjoyability, regardless if it trumps Handwritten or not.

“Stay Vicious” opens Get Hurt in excitedly. The riffs come ‘right at your face,’ while Fallon delivers the lyrics in gritty, emotional fashion. Interesting about “Stay Vicious” is the chorus pulls back, while the verses are...
