These amazing nature places are secluded from the whole world. If you would love to visit some strange and amazing places this summer, than you can try one of these. All of them are something that you will remember for the rest of your life.
A giant mural of Beyoncé on the side of a building in Melbourne, Australia, is the pop culturally relevant work of street artist Lush Sux.
The painting, depicting one of the photographs Beyoncé posted to announce her pregnancy—with twins—is on the car-park wall of a
burger shop in Melbourne’s inner suburbs. Artist Awol Erizku photographed the original image in a fabulous floral photo shoot.
Melbourne is home to fantastic street art, and visitors can take some of the highlights in on various walking tours.
Standing less than 5 feet tall, it’s easy to overlook “Corey J.” in a crowded room. Until he opens his mouth. “There are two types of people in this world,” says 10-year-old Corey Jackson. “There are dreamers. And there are dream chasers. I’m chasing my dreams!”
He may only be 10, but rapper Corey J., aka Lil C Note, is fast gaining traction in the Atlanta hip-hop scene. In the last year, the fifth-grader — a self-proclaimed “positive hip-hop” recording artist — received endorsements from some of the biggest names in the rap industry, including Cash Money Records CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Atlanta trap star rapper Young Thug.
The early success isn’t a surprise for the Jackson, Mississippi, native. He’s been rapping since before he even knew how to ride a bike. “I made my first song ‘Crayons’ at 6 years old,” he says with a big smile. But his love for the art came earlier.
“At first my dad was doing it. He took me to the studio a few times, and I said, I think I want to do that, it looks pretty cool. But my first song, I was only 4 and it was hard for me to stay on beat. It took me a couple of years to get the hang of it.”
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the mainstream rap duo that swept the rap Grammys in 2014 and received backlash after besting Kendrick Lamar, didn’t submit their latest album for contention at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
A person close to the nomination process, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to publicly talk about the topic, said Macklemore & Lewis didn’t submit “This Unruly Mess I Made” when submissions were due last September.
The album, the group’s second, was released last February. Like Macklemore & Lewis, Frank Ocean also didn’t submit his two latest albums for Grammys.
Representatives for the rap group and the Grammys, which was presented Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, didn’t immediately reply to emails seeking comment.
In 2014, Macklemore & Lewis won best rap album for their multiplatinum debut, “The Heist”; best rap song and rap performance for the crossover pop hit, “Thrift Shop”; and best new artist.
The group almost didn’t compete for those rap honors after the Recording Academy’s rap committee felt the duo should compete for pop awards instead because of their mainstream breakthrough, which included No. 1 successes with “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us.” Another single, the same sex anthem “Same Love,” peaked at No.11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Starting Wednesday February 22nd, 2017, Mistah Wilson will be rejuvenating WilsonBlock100 Radio with a new radio show every week! Yes, you read right! Every Wednesday at 10:00a (Pacific Standard Time), Mistah Wilson will be publishing a new radio show to WilsonBlock100 Radio. You can hear the latest shows by visiting ThaWilsonBlock Magazine homepage (desktop view to listen), Spreaker, YouTube, & iTunes.
Mistah Wilson has been a force for the local, native music scene in the Greater DENA region. Since 2014, he’s compiled an extensive list of artist interviews and radio shows. With ThaWilsonBlock Magazine making major strides on it’s own, Mistah Wilson is looking to stimulate the growth of the WilsonBlock100 Radio audience by simply doing more interviews more often.
“The magazine has been consistent since it’s inception. Although WilsonBlock100 Radio has not yet lived up to it’s true potential, I have a plan set in place to grow our audience,” explains Mistah Wilson. “And we’re going to do that by releasing more shows on a consistent basis.” If you take a look at the Pasadena Music Scene Pinterest board, your screen will be swallowed up with a diverse and unified local music scene.
Mistah Wilson has clearly not been focusing on his YouTube channel, which explains why subscriptions are low. “He’s always been more focused on the ‘download’ of his content,” says an anonymous source. “At the rate that the internet is changing these days, I don’t blame him.” Mistah Wilson paid attention to the internet toll lanes that recently went up. The same toll lanes that have us DJ Akademiks says, “we’re trappin’ out tha bandwidth”
paying for the amount of data we use. Those who’ve been paying attention are aware that we went from ‘unlimited everything’ plans to ‘pay per use’. Like what was so wrong with Chirp phones and Nextel Walkie Talkies? Like
With WilsonBlock Wednesdays, Mistah Wilson isn’t changing up much of how he conducts his interviews. As it stands, the show will remain an audio podcast. Mistah Wilson has told us that he simply needs to put more time and effort into his show so that it may also compliment it’s counterpart, ThaWilsonBlock Magazine. One show per week is definitely a step up from 1 or 2 shows
per month. It will provide thawilsonMAG with more originally curated content.
At 10:00a every Wednesday morning starting February 22nd, 2017, Mistah Wilson will be publishing a new radio show with local, independent music, interviews, and urban discussion. This is also a great opportunity for aspiring artists & musicians who want to be a part of a growing movement. Artists in the Pasadena / Altadena region have undoubtedly benefited most from ThaWilsonBlock platform. And Mistah Wilson has every intention on keeping that momentum going.
