This up-coming HBO documentary follows people who consider themselves superheroes. I think this film serves for great television and at the same time ethos as to why. Via HBO
Chance the Rapper has remained awfully quiet since he broke through with his excellent Acid Rap tape. His Surf project with Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment is forthcoming but for solo Chance there hasn't been much. He's kept busy with various other endeavors including acting. In Collin Tilley's short film called Mr. Happy, Chance the Rapper stars as Victor, a depressed guy who discovers a website—MrHappy.com—where he can hire a hitman to kill him. Check out the trailer after the jump.
HBO's series Game of Thrones is huge. Hip-hop is huge. I suppose it only makes sense that the two powerhouse cultures join forces eventually. And join forces is what HBO is offering with the second installment of their Catch the Throne mixtape series. The first track they're sharing is Talib Kweli's "Lord of the Light" which you may listen after the jump.
Sorry, no new material here. The highly reclusive Jay Electronica may not be dropping new music any time (though he promised... on many occasions) but he is starring in an upcoming film. The film in question, Into the Light, directed by Jason Goldwatch and produced by Mass Appeal, will be released in 2015 and is of the experimental variety. Meaning the plot synopsis isn't quite clear, but what really is with Jay Elec nowadays? Watch the trailer for Into the Light after the jump.
