Rabanales “93”

93 Single Artwork 500x500

Tennessee, home of country music and The Great Smoky Mountains. With a
wide range of scenery from music filled streets and cities to small
valley’s, there’s something each and all can find to fit their taste
in life. In 1993 The Wu-Tang Clan dropped their debut album. A Tribe
Called Quest drops the classic album Midnight Marauders, and a star
was born.

Hailing from Knoxville is up coming rapper Rabanales. With a knack for
the fine arts at a young age, great things have always been assumed.
Throughout his youth Rabanales spent much of his time watching rap
music videos, drawing, and reading. It was then at age sixteen a
younger Rabanales started freestyling, only to find it later leading
to an endless amount of opportunities. Fresh out of high school, he
attended Pellissippi State Community College before eventually
quitting to start writing raps in the pursuit of his new found dream.
Now, at age twenty-one, with three years of writing experience he
preps up to drop a slew of new material.

With major influences from Kendrick Lamar, Outkast, and Big Pun he
delivers a unique flow of his own. He’s got a fine, distinct cadence
with rhymes over a various amount of topics. His beats are top notch
as well, and much like his lyricism varies widely from 90’s Boom Bap
beats all the way to your modern day trap beats. His debut EP boasts
upon the 90’s Boom Bap beats for a great five song introduction,
lyrically ranging from all around boastfulness to a poetic formed
relationship track. The debut single “93” has Rabanales rapping over a
Golden Era reminiscent track focused on his past as well as paying
homage to The Souls of Mischief’s classic hit, “93 ’til Infinity”.

Scott Disick Cancels Vegas Gig, Heading to Rehab

Scott Disick is saying NO to partying his face off — for at least one night — he’s backed out of a paid hosting gig in Las Vegas.
Disick just made the 11th hour decision to postpone his Friday night appearance at 1Oak Nightclub in Vegas.
The decision comes on the heels of Kourtney Kardashian pulling the plug on their relationship — and after Scott missed their 3-year-old daughter Penelope’s birthday this week.
We broke the story … Disick’s friends had been urging him to cancel on 1Oak, and get into rehab.
Stay tuned.

Ariana Grande: Singer Apologizes After Video Shows Her Licking Doughnut and Saying ‘I Hate America’

Ariana Grande’s new boyfriend got upstaged by her tongue — which got dangerously close to some powdered donuts … pissing off the people who busted their asses making ’em.

Ok, first the BF — Ricky Alvarez, he’s one of Ariana’s backup dancers, and you can see them engage in some serious mouth-to-mouth PDA in this security cam video … which wouldn’t have come to light if not for the donut incident.
Sources inside Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, CA tell us the couple came in on Saturday, and decided to play truth or dare with the goods — daring each other to lick powdered jelly donuts on the counter.
Hard to tell if their tongues actually make contact, but our sources in the shop say it was definitely too close for their liking — especially since Ariana pulled the stunt when no one was looking, and they would’ve tossed the contaminated donuts if they knew.
Then again … plenty of people might pay extra for a Grande-licked pastry.

MICHAEL C. HALL TO STAR IN DAVID BOWIE’S NEW SCI-FI MUSICAL, LAZARUS

 

Coming off of the success of his turn as Hewdig in the Broadway revival last year of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, former Dexter and Six Feet Under star Michael C. Hall is now set to return to the stage in Lazarus, a new science-fiction musical by rock icon David Bowie and Once playwright Edna Walsh. The show will debut at the New York Theater Workshop this coming winter.

The show is going to be Directed by Ivo van Hove, and will feature new music composed by Bowie, as well as new arrangements of previously recorded music. Considering the sci-fi nature of this musical, I’d image some of those new arrangements of older material would have to include “Space Oddity” and “Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars“, right?

Lazarus is an adaptation of the sci-fi novel The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis, which was actually already adapted into a film in the 1970s starring David Bowie himself as Thomas Jerome Newton, an alien who comes to Earth looking for water to take back to his home world. Now Michael C. Hall will be playing the same part Bowie played in the film (it all comes full circle). Luckily for Hall, playing glam rocker Hedwig was no doubt the perfect training to tackle any role inspired by Ziggy Stardust himself. Right now, Lazarus is scheduled to begin  preview performances on November 8 of this year, with opening night set for December 7, 2015.

‘My heart is with the families’: Beyonce posts moving tribute to the victims of Charleston church shooting

Weariness, rage, and the depressing conviction that America is caught in a murderous loop of violence fueled by racism – these emotions resounded after the deadly shootings in Charleston, South Carolina.

As the nation mourned, Beyonce posted a video listing the names of the nine victims who were killed on Wednesday at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

She accompanied the short film with the caption:’My heart is with the families, loved ones, and all of those affected by the senseless tragedy in Charleston. May they rest in peace.’

The victims of the tragedy, who were slain inside their church were: The Rev. Clementa Pinckney, 41, Cynthia Hurd, 54, The Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, 45, Tywanza Sanders, 26, Ethel Lance, 70, Susie Jackson, 87, Depayne Middleton Doctor, 49, The Rev. Daniel Simmons, 74, Myra Thompson, 59.

A 21-year-old white man has been charged with nine counts of murder in connection with the attack on the historic black South Carolina church, police said on Friday, and media reports said he had hoped to incite a race war in the United States.

The accused, Dylann Roof, is due to appear by video link to face a bail hearing on Friday and also faces a charge of possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, the Charleston Police Department said.

Roof was arrested on Thursday in North Carolina, 220 miles (354 km) north of the nearly 200-year-old Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church where he is alleged to have shot dead nine black worshippers on Wednesday in a Bible-study group.

U.S. officials are investigating the shootings, in which four ministers including a Democratic state senator died, as a hate crime.

They were the latest in a year of turmoil in the United States where police killings of several unarmed black men have provoked an angry national debate about race relations, policing and the criminal justice system.
