Cardi B Set to Make Acting Debut

Cardi B is heading back to work at the strip club again, except this time it’s on the big screen.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper will be starring alongside Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer, and Julia Styles in a movie called Hustlers. It’s a movie about a group of former strippers set to get revenge on some of their wealthy clients by running up their credit cards. 

This will be Cardi B’s first movie. Hustlers is set to begin filming on March 22nd.

Clear Soul Forces is a MUST FOLLOW

Can you think of a rap or hip hop group that stands out currently? There have been many notables in the past: Wu-Tang Clan, Odd Future, Hot Boy$, but I haven’t heard a GROUP lately have you? Clear Soul Forces is about to fill in that void.

If you like that Detroit, boom-bap, Dilla sound, then you’ll dig the “Voltron” that is Clear Soul Forces. E-Fav, Ilajide, L.A.Z. and Noveliss are back together for another album release. I’ve got three reasons you should follow these guys.

  1. They’re a hip-hop GROUP which is a rare find these days

Money is tight these days, and having to split the little cash given between all the members and behind the scenes people is tough. It’s not exactly an ideal situation for any artist. I think what makes this group special is their motivation to form together in making a sound that stands above the rest. 

2.  This group is just as strong individually as a group 

Look up each member individually, and you’ll be impressed by the work they do solo. Take Noveliss for example. If you listen to “Brand New” and “5 AM in Shibuya” you’ll be impressed. I guess that’s what happens when you hang around people like Mega Ran and Royce Da 5’9”.

E-Fav REALLY believes in hip-hop, and why not? If you watch this video, he’s trying to bring it back in the truest sound. 

While most of the members usually rap backpack-style, Ilajide can switch it up a bit. If you go to his Instagram, you can see a video where he’s rappin west-coast style.

L.A.Z was raised right. You could tell when he can drop his like this. It makes sense when your mom is a big hip-hop head and your stepdad was a DJ.

3. This group has Royce Da 5’9” seal of approval

What more can you say, about this group, when after recording Royce goes “You know what? You guys should form a group.”

Nuff Said

Check out their new album Still. I’ve been listening to them non-stop on Apple Music.

De La Soul Fighting to Get Their Fair Share of Streaming Revenue

De La Soul is fighting for their fair share of sales from its album catalogue.

As the catalogue goes to streaming platforms, the group altogether will see 10% of the revenue. Tommy Boy Records will reportedly receive 90% of it. 

Some streaming websites, like Tidal, are pushing back, saying they will not put their music on their platform until the issue is resolved. 

De La Soul’s catalog with Tommy Boy Records goes all the way back to 1989, when they released 3 Feet High and Rising.
