Almost four years ago to the day of the release of Pusha T’s critically acclaimed 21 minute coke rip Daytona, he has returned with another possible classic, It’s Almost Dry. A lot has been said about the Push’s production, beat picking, and especially the length of his last project during that time but his latest answers any questions you may have had about G.O.O.D. music’s hottest ticket behind its main headliner Kanye West who appears...

Disney +’s recent success that came with  The Mandalorian made The Book of Boba Fett highly anticipated but for more reasons than one fell short of expectations. The bar had been raised last year when Luke Skywalker made a triumphant return in the Finale and though Book of Boba Fett had some really amazing moments as a whole the project felt subpar. As a lifelong Star Wars fan, especially for the original trilogy, I felt...

When Netflix paved the way for content streaming, a new term was born to describe this rapid consumption of original series: “binge tv”. Instead of waiting for new episodes every week, you can watch them all at once, like one big movie. Now following Paramount+’s debut, all major studios have officially launched themselves into a streaming war. The deciding factor for who will win this competition is the one with the freshest series out on...

After another chaotic year of this fucking pandemic one of the few shining lights has been the quality of the music. More artists are taking their time and delivering more complete projects, unlike the last few years pre-pandemic where singles got strung along and the craft just didn’t feel there. 2021 was different, our list is the 12 best complete projects top to bottom. This year Hip Hop really took the driver’s seat and grabbed...

After the Los Angeles Chargers Week 4 win over the Las Vegas Raiders, a proud Joey Bosa didn’t mince words when he gave a very clear statement on what he thinks about the Silver & Black’s quarterback Derek Carr. “We knew once we hit him a few times, he really gets shook. And you saw on (Covington’s) sack, he was pretty much curling into a ball before we even got back there. Great dude, great...

The biggest show on cable television Yellowstone promised high action in its season four finale but fell short of expectations set by how well the series has been in the past. The land battle over one of the largest ranches in Montana and the excentric family who runs it has captivated viewers of all demographics that can’t get enough. Each installation of the show has done a good job of closing down chapters in its...

Longtime colleague and La Mesa’s own Cali Kev was a guest on the Random Gold Podcast giving me my first exposure to Marquis and Andrew. Their boldness, chemistry, and willingness to say whatever was on their mind is what pulled me to the show. The Random Gold podcast is pushing boundaries and reclaiming a place for comedy as well as civil discourse. This is one of the reasons I became a weekly viewer and a...

There I was with my new friend Eli in a dark pop-up room with fabric walls twisting and tugging at a wetsuit struggling to get it around Rodrigo’s belly and shoulders. Rodrigo had just gotten to Ponto beach off a bus from South Central LA, he told me he could see shapes and colors but for the most part, was visually impaired. All three of our feet dug into the sand while we pulled his...

After the dramatic surprise release of Kanye West’s latest album DONDA the stage was set for Drake’s revenge album Certified Lover Boy that dropped one week later to take over the chart and has been keeping hold since. Most popular music sites use rating systems with little transparency of how they came up with the album’s score, always leaving room for scrutiny. Here is the first time we are presenting the new standard for my music reviews called the...
