Flatbush Zombies drop new track, "Red Light, Green Light" feat. Espa

BY LEJLA BAJGORIC

“Red Light, Green Light” is the third installment of Flatbush Zombies’ Day of the Dead series. Though we don’t get a verse from Zombie Juice on this track, vocals from Espa are enough to establish an eerie tone at the song’s start.

The video could not have been executed better. It’s a humble yet dignified view of Yela’s home, portrayed just as one would presume he would want it to be.

Tech Tuesday: Chasing J.A.R.V.I.S. and the aversion to "always-listening" technology

BY STEVEN TWEEDIE

Apple

We still have a few laps until we catch up to the fictional J.A.R.V.I.S.’s level of comprehension and security, but I predict a second wind. People can be reasonable. If tech companies can present a compelling argument for an always-listening device and back it up with a secure storage architecture for the necessary peace-of-mind, then we may well see the Xbox Two or iPhone 7 bundled with a J.A.R.V.I.S.-level voice assistant.

Denzel Curry set to perform with The Underachievers at the Blind Pig on Apr. 9

BY SALLY KIM

Curry’s music is a conglomeration of the realities of his South Floridian homestead, honest deep self-reflections, haunting beats with an eerie twang paying an homage to horror-core 90’s Memphis rap and rap flows that range from sharp dagger like dictation to smooth roll-off-the-tongue melodies.

Why you shouldn't watch the series finale of "How I Met Your Mother"

BY ALLEN DONNE

CBS

This past Monday night, I braced myself as a huge part of my life was coming to an end. I’ve watched “How I Met Your Mother” since 7th grade and became unreasonably invested in it. Even when the show had its low points from season four to seven, my faith didn’t falter. Now I’m wishing it had. (SPOILER ALERT)

What your shoes say about you

BY ALLEN DONNE

Wikipedia

With winter finally melting away, there’s more room to personalize your style. No longer are outfits masked under thick Eskimo coats. Nor do we have to resort only to North Faces for warmth. Now that the weather is looking reasonable, there are plenty of options, and one of the most important is shoe choice.

BY HANNAH WEINER

MySpace.com

RAC had a magnetic pull on everyone, from the front of the dance floor to the far back of the room where people inched closer and closer until they were entirely sucked in, like a moth attracted to a flame.

Can the Wu Tang Clan save hip hop?

BY LEJLA BAJGORIC

Wu Tang Clan

Is exclusivity versus mass replication really the 50 million dollar difference between a microphone and a paintbrush? Cilvaringz and The RZA, on behalf of the entire Wu-Tang Clan, recently posed that exact question with their announcement of the upcoming release of The Wu — Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, which will be distributed — just one copy — in an unorthodox way to say the least.
