A few years ago Donald Glover had his name circulating the web in an online campaign to have the rapper/ actor portray Spider-man in the then-unreleased reboot, which would ultimately go to Andrew Garfield. DG has touched on the topic in various interviews, mentioning that he would still like a shot at playing the web head; and also discussed the online backlash he received from fans who refused to have a black Spider-man. Well guess what folks, D.G has been selected to voice the web-slinger in the upcoming animated series, Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors. This is a good look for Gambino, as well has comic nerds everywhere. Check out this short clip of D.G voicing Spider-man. And view the full article to see Donald’s interview about the Spider-man backlash.

[Video] TreeTop ENT- “On My Nuts” (Dir. Tim Freelink)

on my nuts

Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael step out of the sewers to take part in TreeTop‘s latest video, “On My Nuts.” This track here is a ode to the high school outcasts, weirdos and basically anybody out there who lives life by their own rules rather than following the rest of the herd. “On My Nuts” has to be one of the most creative videos I’ve seen in a minute. Growing up I was a huge Ninja Turtles fan, and I know for a fact that “On My Nuts” would be my 10 year old self’s favorite music video(the 25 year old me loves it just as much). The Tim Freelink directed video is off the wall, quirky and just fun to watch. The fact that Treetop was able to book out an elementary school for the video proves that Culture, Kehmak, TT Lo and Casper aren’t playing around when it comes to this music thing. “On My Nuts,” will be available on Kehmak’s new album, Revenge Of The Nerds. Check the video below, and be sure to share your thoughts with us.

[Interview] SepTo talks consolidating his personal & rapper image into his new album “Almost NevR”

SepTO Almost NevR Artwork

Metaphorically, the album cover represents the death of a certain mentality, it’s the moment you stop caring and stop trying to present a very specific perspective. Almost NevR in a positive way means it’s we are almost manifested, we are almost tangible, but if you take the literal meaning, its this close to not existing, it’s hanging by a thread. It’s the conflict of, am I keep doing this? Is this rational? If you are listening to the album and you love it, keep in mind how close it is to never existing, that man in the cover hanging could have touched the world, and he is NevR going to give what he could have given you. SepTo

It was an honour to have a conversation with SepTo live on The Come Up Show. His album Almost NevR is out for free download and his celebration is this Friday August 29th at live at the Ballet. Our interview started off by talking about the value of connecting with people on a human to human connection. SepTo expanded on his strategy to promote the album in retrospect and why this was the first time he made Almost NevR album without thinking of the next project. I asked him about the meaning of songs  lyrics on Excursions, Dance Around my Brain, Last Night, Father and had him expand on his opinion pieces he wrote below.

An excerpt of SepTo’s article on Social Media and Real Shit
Today, with the help of social media, we have defined happiness and success in tangible items. You are only as accomplished as what you post. Your satisfaction with your life is determined by what you have allowed others to think of your life.

SepTo’s article on Your Health and Corporate profit
Approach the most available food with the most caution. The companies we are allowing the responsibility of providing us with our sustenance are not concerned with our health and are not here for any other mutual benefit than to have you willingly purchase their goods. My belly is full from McDonald’s and they obeyed the regulatory minimum amount of sawdust allowed in my burger. My can of CocaCola is exhilarating my taste buds and they have kept the amount of sugar within that can just short of an immediately lethal amount. Win/Win, right?

Watch this and so much more in our hour long conversation with SepTo and come out to the show this Friday and download the album Almost NevR. Let me know what you thought of the interview in the comment section below.

[Video] Kilo Kish – “Locket” (Dir. Phillip T. Annand )

kilo kish

Vocalist, song writer, visual artist, painter, fashion/textile designer, and model/actress; Kilo Kish is a Jaquelin of all trades who can’t settle for one creative outlet. The first time I heard Kilo Kish was on Childish Gambino’s project, Because The Internet, and I was instantly hooked to her morose/sultry style. Kilo’s latest video, “Locket,” is a song about going through the motions; feeling stuck and aimless. The Phillip T. Annand directed video features Kilo Kish in her own world while friends party around her. Who can’t relate?
