Jagged Edge Tour Dates
Lets keep it 100
The state of R&B is in really bad shape,most of all the mainstream outlets are now ran by younger people who know very little about true R&B, and don’t really care,this is forcing artist to stop doing what they love,stop writing great songs,stop singing and wanting to be rappers,or at least do rapper like things,
When I post about new music,most of the comments I get are,jd bring back that good shit,instead of all this BS on the radio,
With that being said,All of you that feel this way,all of you that love great music,I ain’t to proud to beg lol,I’m begging you, pls pick up this new JE album,and help us restore the feeling, 10/27
Pop is killing!!! Rap and R&B again,i love it because, now niggas gotta make much much better shit, to mean something
The first week sales numbers for Lupe Fiasco’s Tetsuo & Youth and Joey Bada$$’ B4.DA.$$ albums are in, with Joey edging out Lupe by about 23,000 copies. Officially, Joey notched the No. 5 spot on the charts with 58,000 units moved in the first week of sales for his debut album, with around 94% of that number coming from actual sales and not streams. Lupe was also able to beat his own personal projections this week, with 35,740 copies of his album actually sold, and a total of 44,000 with streams.
In other chart news, Fall Out Boy secured the third No. 1 album of their career, with American Beauty/American Psycho moving a total of 218,000 units with streams included. This was the second biggest week of sales for a rock group in the last two years, with only Coldplay’s Ghost Stories selling more. Taylor Swift continued her chart dominance once again this week, with another 119,000 units sold, which was good enough for the No. 2 spot.
The kicks feature dual construction of leather and canvas, as added support has been applied at the heel on this particular rendition. The tan leather is complemented nicely by touches of red canvas on the side and at the toebox, while a white midsole provides offset underneath. Peach shading then draws attention to the aforementioned panel support at the heel, as tan waxed laces round out the release.

111 Minutes. Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Brie Larson, Michael K. Williams, Jessica Lange & John Goodman. Director: Rupert Wyatt.
All on Mark! Wahlberg is all in, to the score of being the ‘Six Million Dollar’ man. You better check this Mark’s hand, because he’s got the hot one. Just like his early days plays of ‘Three Kings’ and ‘Four Brothers’. A ‘Perfect Storm’ for this ‘Lone Survivor’ of the star stock market rise and fall of the Hollywood hills. Sure he’s been dealt some bad hands. That’s just ‘Pain and Gain’ for you. Still he’s bet big and cashed in on franchise face cards from the metal to the fur with ‘Transformers’ and ‘Ted’. All whilst concealing some of his best deals with that Cruise/Keanu blending in picture poker face, with hidden gems like ‘Contraband’ and other thrillers like ‘We Own The Night’, ’2 Guns’ ‘Broken City’ and now this one. Still amongst all the fun (‘The Other Guys’) and games (‘The Fighter’), the man whose cashed in and played with more chips than McDonalds always had an ace in the hole with his Academy Award nominated ‘The Departed’. You got to love this guys hustle. Now reuniting with ‘Departed’ writer William Monahan, Wahlberg invites a ‘Planet Of The Apes’ (no not his one) director Rupert Wyatt to the table to play their cards at remaking a 1973 James Caan film, complete with an up to date soundtrack your hipster friend would be O.M.G. jealous of and a cinematographic look of the city of angels, Los Angeles that one of their Instagram filters could never quite do so digitally proud. For the look and feel of this cool and slick picture, this ‘Gambler’ pays off.
But buyer and gamble aware, the Hollywood house always wins. This is no suckers bet, but in card comparison to his unsung numbers its no sure thing. That doesn’t mean its not a decent deal however and with a slight of hand slick move it pulls something out of its ass that is all real and no magic. Tricking the eye before your silver screens, the muscle of Mark is slimmed down (a great way of the frame pairing a portrait of a man down on his luck and time) to an almost gaunt Dylanesque look, complete with those trademark shades that either cover a black eye, or one hell of a night. It just might be both as this Jack wears the same suit, trying to find the perfect one to pay off more gangsters and debts than a failed hip-hop star. In this ‘Oceans Eleven’ our lead may find himself sleeping with the fishes if he doesn’t break a leg in this game of chance. Oh the irony. Breaking if he does, broken if he doesn’t. Wahlberg perfectly plays a former best-selling novelist, lecturing English as his new day job and moonlighting in some extra curricula activities as profitable and headache inducing as moonshine. He talks a good game and lectures one too. Preaching at his class to lead better lives, all whilst talking himself out of losing his. Facing off against it all Wahlberg plays it straight and flushed. This ace is smoking.
Just like Brie Larson, an actress really coming into her own and showing substance in this cigarettes and coffee picture. ‘Scott Pilgrim’ and ’21 Jump Street’ made her a face in this game. Stealing the show with a few words of worldly wisdom over some anti-social smart phoning in ‘Don Jon’ and now this co-star of real chips down support, now shows Larson id the real deal. Count more cards however and you’ll find a classy call of a cast. From young, ‘Place Beyond The Pines’ standout Emory Cohen, to ‘King Kong’ and ‘Big Fish’, Oscar winning legend Jessica Lange. Still in Wahlberg’s mark its the people who he owes money to that you can really bank on. ‘The Wire’s’ Omar and ‘Boardwalk Empire’s’ Chalky, Michael K. Williams is cigar smoking cool, finally getting the bigger role he worked so hard for and royaly deserves. No more spare seconds of scene in ’12 Years A Slave’ or dreaded ‘Robocop’ pictures. Still, however the biggest and best gamble hers lies with the great man Goodman. Or shall we say sitting here with dear John, draped in a towel and sauna sweat, bic shaving the scalp, looking like a mighty Moby Dick monster of a man complete with gangster goatee and grimaces. And lets not forgive that stare and the glaring threats that provide all fire and no smoke to those burning holes. ‘The Artist’, ‘Argo’, ‘Flight’, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ and ‘The Monuments Men’. John Goodman has been racking up the star standouts in some Oscar nominated or worthy films for some years now. He’s only a few more scenes and Oscar away. Still the voice that joined Wahberg as a ‘Transformer’ in last years ‘Age Of Extinction’ brings his sinister and best in years. Character acting has rarely felt and looked the part this much. All in all this tale and take of addiction in a heavily gambling money, cash cow advertised world is hard to resist. Sure detoxing critics have left this at a debt and of course this writer will love any film with a well done basketball scene played in, but still this is a strong suit. From its wheel of fortune, ball spinning logo start to its slick direction cut of the deck. Still if the ever playable Wahlberg wants to hit real riches again in his career catalogue, he’ll have to go to something that’s more of a sure thing. No more bets! TIM DAVID HARVEY.
Hoping to disrupt the disappointing cycle is British brand BLOC & ROC, who launched late last year with their two flagship models – the Galvanize S1 and S2. Made entirely in the UK using aircraft-grade aluminium, the Galvanize headphones are the result of over two years’ research and development. Packing bespoke 40mm dynamic drivers, they deliver clear and resonant audio (with particular attention to those low frequencies), while little touches like a fibre-wrapped cable, memory foam earcups and soft protein leather finishing result in something that both looks and feels noticeably more luxurious than the many plastic options out there.
Most surprisingly, at $190 a pair, they’re well within the budget of most semi-serious customers. That said, if you really want to push the premium boat out they also make a 24-karat gold-plated version for added bling factor.
OH HERE GO DA BULLSHIT,I WAS SO SCARED THIS WAS GONNA HAPPEN, WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT !?
“Star Wars” creator George Lucas may have relinquished control of his space-faring franchise when he sold the rights to Disney back in 2012, but those wondering how much of the director’s influence will find its way into the plot of the upcoming seventh installment may now have an answer — not much.
Following comments that he had started to craft some ideas for a new “Star Wars” trilogy before Lucasfilm was acquired, Lucas was asked in an interview with Cinema Blend published Tuesday to divulge some of the ideas he had cooked up for new “Star Wars” material.
“Well, the ones that I sold to Disney and everything, they came up to the decision that they didn’t really want to do those,” Lucas told Cinema Blend. “So they made up their own. It’s not the ones that I originally wrote.”
STAR WARS BLASTS BACK ONTO OUR SCREENS
There will doubtless be many sci-fi fans claiming relief at the news that Lucas’ ideas won’t be making it into “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, which is scheduled for release in December. Widespread criticism of the CGI-heavy prequel trilogy that arrived between 1999 and 2005 has seen Lucas’ cachet within the geek community drop. This even led to viral hits such as a mocking rework of the first “Force Awakens” trailer that imagines what the new film could look like with Lucas in the driving seat.
Are “Star Wars” fans altogether too eager to give Lucas a hard time though? I’d argue that while there’s little to redeem the prequel movies, Lucas is the father of the “Star Wars” universe beloved by so, so many. It’s his world we’re daydreaming in when we spend long, dull meetings imagining epic lightsaber battles, or spicing up a boring commute with some Duel of the Fates. If I was in Disney’s position, I would have thought long and hard before casting aside any ideas that poured directly out of Lucas’ grey matter.
