Best Day Ever with YG & 4 Hunnid ☀️

Best Day Ever can be described by some as one of the most fire pool parties Miami has ever seen. Norma Now and Yes Julz bring the heat every time they join forces and deliver the coolest party ever. Whether they bring special performances, dope DJs, and/or some good ol’ fashion water toys they know how to keep the party jumpin’. After our successful Winter Music Conference edition of Best Day Ever they decided to turn it up a notch: HOST BEST DAY EVER AT A MANSION WITH YG AND HIS CREW. The coolest thing about this party was is that it was invite only and it was at a secret location, because ya know we like to keep things mysterious.

“Get Out”: Film Review

Get Out 2

If you haven’t seen Get Out, what are you waiting for? This perfectly written horrific/comedic film from first time director Jordan Peele keeps us at the edge of our seats the entire time. Get Out is a summary of what racism looks like in today’s generation. It impeccably ties in our society’s views on black people and how we more than often value their culture/bodies more than we value them as human beings.

This film starts off with Chris Washington (portrayed by Daniel Kaluuya) and Rose Armitage (portrayed by Allison Williams from Girls) getting ready to take off for the weekend to her parent’s house so that she can introduce him to her mother and father. Stereotypically, there is an abundance of tension when couples in interracial relationships finally meet the parents. Especially in white and black relationships when we think about the history of whites and blacks dating back to the pre-slavery era. In the beginning scene, Chris touches on the subject of Rose telling her parents of his race. Rose quickly states that her parents do not care and that the worst that will happen is her dad spewing corny dad jokes to Chris the whole weekend.

“My dad would have voted for Obama for a third term if he could.” - Rose

From the beginning of the film, Peele provides clues to the screwed up reality that the Armitage’s live in. From the overly robotic seeming housekeepers to the one black guy Chris runs into at the family party, there is something off about the black people he has encountered. Not to mention, Rose’s brother showcases his overly active craving to put Chris into a headlock and “play wrestle” with him at the dinner table. Attempting to quit smoking, Chris sneaks out in the middle of the night to have a smoke and what he experienced was more than what he bargained for. Walking back into the house Rose’s mother Missy (portrayed by Catherine Keener) lures Chris into the living room and purposely hypnotizes him into talking about his deceased mother.

After the hypnosis, a series of eerie events follow each other such as the cellphone charger, the picture flash, fist pound gone wrong, and guests questioning his African American experience. Chris wants to go home and Rose agrees, but what Chris fails to realize is that the family’s plot to capture him is greater than his goal to escape.

The use of satire in this film to expose racism is done in an extremely conveying way that stuns us when we realize that Peele is an amateur director. This film is a fresh perspective on horror movies as Get Out was far from predictable and unexpectedly comedic. Cultural experiences are taken to a new level in this film that we are able to see both sides of the spectrum when it comes to race issues. Get Out lets the audience witness real life horror that black people face everyday of their lives involving mistrust, angst, and anxiety. Get Out is the kind of film that you watch the second time to fully understand all of the clues that were planted throughout the film to capture it’s terrifying truth.

Get Out 1 Get Out 3 Get Out

Get Out is a 10/10.

 

 

 

Future’s 2017 Releases: Future & HNDRXX

Dropping two albums within a week of each other? Yup. Sounds like Future Hendrix! These past two weeks have been music overload with the release of Future on 02.17.17 and HNDRXX releasing a week after. Both releases are quite the opposite of each other with Future leaning towards the trap side and HNDRXX being a more R&B/Pop driven project.

Future and HNDRXX both include 17 tracks and the internet already took to cracking jokes about their inability to start learning 17 additional tracks once they heard of the release of HNDRXX days after the release of Future. 

Twitter Twitter1

Future

Future gives us the side of Future that we all know and love. The project gives off a somber feeling with splashes of up-beat rhythms that are sure to get us going when it’s time to go out and paint the town.

My top 5 tracks of this project include: Rent Money, Super Trapper, Mask Off, I’m so Groovy, and Massage in My Room.

future-hndrxx

HNDRXX unlike Future includes radio friendly content. This specific project shows us a side of Future that is rarely heard. Some tracks off this project give off an electric vibe with sounds contrasting to the usual Future sound. Future gives us a more genuine taste and a look inside of his emotions.

My top 5 tracks of this project include: Comin Out Strong, Use Me, Incredible, Hallucinating, and I Thank U.

What are some of your favorite tracks?

Los Angeles truly captured our hearts as the crowd was just as lit if not more than our Miami crowd. By the end of the night the dance floor was packed, the bar was in full throttle pouring everyone’s drinks away, and Norma and her gang were right along with them every step of the way. If you want to check out the recap video go straight to our @NowNeverInc Instagram & let us know what you think! What city should we hit up next??
